Why a cop allowed a teenager to use a stun gun on him

Police in Ohio helped a teenage leukemia patient cross off a bucket-list item that was pretty shocking: She wanted to use a stun gun on someone. Sixteen-year-old Alyssa Elkins got to do that Sunday. After a bit of training from Newark police, she zapped Sgt. Doug Bline — who’d been first among the police department employees who volunteered for the task — as a crowd of supporters watched. Bline winced and fell onto a mat, guided by spotters. Bline said, “It is unpleasant to say the least, but if for five seconds if it makes somebody’s kind of dream come true, especially in her situation, I think it was well worth it.” Alyssa described the experience as “awesome.”

It's a generous thing to do since clearly this is rather painful...watch.
