Today under headline “As Occupy Wall Street Comes Out of Hibernation, Are Tasers, Mace or Weapon Detection Systems Good Investments?” smallcapnetwork.com spies gold in them thar hills:

As the weather warms up, Occupy Wall Street and various Occupy protesters should be coming out of hibernation to start protesting again but are stocks like TASER International (TASR), Mace Security International (MACE) and View Systems (VSYM) that make various protection devices or identification systems good bets for investors? … law enforcement authorities across the country are no doubt stocking up on tasers and mace in time for the spring and summer Occupy protest seasons. …are TASER, Mace and View Systems safe investments for those of us in the or who want to be in the 1% or should we give these stocks a pass?

A financial overview of the companies follows. There’s only one sour note: the summary states “Investors should be concerned about the potential number of wrongful death lawsuits that TASER International as well as Mace Security International could face”. But really, what’s the risk of a few dead protesters when compared with the opportunity to become a One Percenter?
