This article is about an Indiana-based company that is developing non-lethal weaponry including some sort of gun that shoots lightning. Although non-lethal measures sound appealing, there is something odd about the tone of this article and how it presents weapon development as some sort of exciting dream job. Notice how the story begins with Bitar's meeting with "Superman." It then documents his move from a dreary day job to the exciting world of combatting terrorism. The whole thing, particularly the weapon carnival where people sign up to be tazered, is strange when you consider how serious this topic really is.
