Fiction: A cop’s taser and a disability lawsuit against a municipality

The chief, Morris, and a lab tech were sitting around, drinking coffee, talking about a recent controversial tasing. A Bloomington cop’s wife had woken angry in the middle of the night, and had used his duty Taser to tase her sleeping husband in the area sometimes called the gooch. He was now claiming a major disability−sexual dysfunction caused by a city-owned instrument−and was seeking to be retired at full pay. He was twenty-seven.

“I’ll tell you what,” Morris said, holding his coffee cup with his pinkie finger properly out in the air. “That boy won’t be sleeping easy with a woman again, no matter who she is.”
