Prison officer surprised he was fired after zapping children with 50,000-volt stun gun

Prison officer Walter Schmidt zapped visiting children with a 50,000-volt stun gun to give them a taste of life in a Florida jail. Two of the kids were knocked screaming to the floor with burns on their arms. One child went to the hospital.

"It wasn't intended to be malicious, but educational," said Schmidt. "The big shock came when I got fired."
