Stunned in Pennsylvania

I am getting ready to file a tort claim lawsuit against the government for personal injury due to the reckless use of explosive bombs, AKA "Stun-Grenades" [against prisoners at FCI-McKean].

Does anyone know anything about these [stun-grenades] or can direct me to a case (other than the very recent 73 F.3d where stun-grenades were ruled "destructive devices" in a criminal case)? I've searched all BOP policy statements and can find nothing. I've [also] searched the federal reporters and the Prisoners' Self-Help Litigation Manual and have not found even one case where stun-grenades were used on prisoners.

How about the manufacture of these things? Does anyone know who makes them? I would like to see the instructions for their use and the Material Data Safety Sheets.
