For the FOURTH time this year, @winnipegpolice officer loses DANGERous #taser cartridge

Do you suppose that the Winnipeg Police department is really "losing" the cartridges or are they actually "using" the cartridges but can't be bothered with the reporting and paperwork??

On Twitter - truthnottasers: @winnipegpolice haven't tweeted since January! Too busy searching for the FOUR dangerous #taser cartridges they've lost SO FAR THIS YEAR??

WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg police officer lost the cartridge from his Taser Saturday night and police say it could be dangerous to anyone who finds it.

The cartridge - which contains probes and wires that deliver a shock when discharged - fell off an officer's belt overnight somewhere in District 13 in Northwest Winnipeg.

The Taser itself was not lost.

Police say the cartridge could pose a risk, especially if it's placed in a pocket. A build-up of static energy could activate the cartridge, causing the probes to be propelled.

If you find the cartridge, call @winnipegpolice immediately.
