Taser-wielding Canadian police inadvertently caused a horrific underpant conflagration at the weekend, according to reports.

Sorry but that would be Provincial police or possibly RCMP depending on the problem and circumstances. 'State' police are south of the border.
@Anonymous Coward & "These brave boy's are out there risking your life to save their arse....."
Of course if you were just making fun of the drooling idiots who characterise the police thus then bravo!
Did the perp yell out "Hey, watch this!" before going for a blue flamer?
yah, shoulda just billy clubbed his @ss. Or as the liberals want, let the guy go because he's only a criminal because of social/political/economic policies...and libs know all about those crippling policies because *they* created them.
Ethanol food shortages, anyone? Who's been pushing for that since the 70's? Not "oil baron" conservatives...but I don't expect any liberals to ever take the responsibility (another non PC concept these days) of their own actions. Especially when there's record of how many so-called "backwards" conservatives warned them explicitly that this sort of situation was *certain* to occur.
I wonder if El Reg could set up comments to automatically turn any sentence starting with "Mine's the one..." into "I'm an arsehole who thinks I'm funny", and any sentence starting "Paris because..." into "I need to get laid" and then printing their full name and address and a request to be shot?

This usually results in overbalance and serious fractured limbs/head injuries often result . The discovery and use of fire by the sect is predictable and represents an escalated level of threat .
Good to know that the police are alert , prepared , and most of all that members of the public are willing to " have a go " in order to thwart the evil of ...........etc
a google search reveals more..........
Last time I checked it would be a Provincial unit not a "state" unit.
USA = States (oh, and Puerto Rico and Iraq)
Canada = Provinces and Territories
France = Departments
Germany = Lander
Australia = States and Territories
New Zealand = Had a provincial era, sadly forgotten.
Now isn't that Yankee Doodle Dandy.
