A tasar proof jacket?

Evidently, someone has sought a patent for a jacket that would resist shocks like a taser. Do you think they'll call it "Don't tase me, bro?"

Gregory Russell Schultz apparently empathizes with this demographic, and has filed a patent for an "energy weapon protection device" -- essentially a jacket embedded with alternating layers of conductive and non-conductive panels that complete an electrical circuit and leave the wearer impervious to the shocks of what would likely be a very surprised officer of the law.
I don't think this will be very effective, they'll probably just tase you in the tushie.
