Everyone’s got a bucket list, and it’s assumed that on every list, somewhere, there’s an entry about using a taser on someone. Very few get to fulfill this wish, but one Ohio teen did.

16-year-old Alyssa Elkins, a teen battling leukemia, wanted to use a stun gun on someone, and the Newark, Ohio police department helped her dream come true. Alyssa got to tase Sgt. Doug Bline as a crowd of supporters watched. “Bline winced and fell onto a mat, guided by spotters,” writes Newsday.”
