It was "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" at the Franklin Correctional Institution, and Sgt. Walter Schmidt wanted to give the kids an idea of what their parents do.

Schmidt, the arsenal sergeant at the Panhandle prison, said he asked parents for permission to shock the kids.
"When they said 'sure,' I went ahead and did it," he said by phone Friday.
