You know I was just thinking. Why are we calling this liberal taser use?

Clearly by him doing a "very brief" stun to the back this would be a conservative taser use?
Que pasa?

By liberal I meant without discrimination. Though if this forum is any indicator of political platforms, using a taser against a minor could be considered a conservative move.

Sadly that is not an assumption we can make.

She's a friggin' 10 year old girl. Give her another hour or so and she'll kick and scream herself to sleep.

The mother claimed she had behavioral issues. If she got a hold of his side arm
would she know when to stop?

Because 10 year olds are incapable of violent crimes

And if I had wheels I'd be a wagon

It was an entirely unrelated, and rather absurd response bearing little value to the topic at hand.

Kind of like your response :)

I'd have zapped her too. Mostly because I don't like kids.

Regardless of what ANYONE is capable of doing, I think the real finger should be pointed right back at the mother.

First you need to consider how much force a 10 year old girl can project on another person. While a swift kick to the groin can be painful even if it just nicks the man, it does not mean that this particular 10 year old girl could inflict any further damage past that. If the Officer is up to snuff on his training then his reaction time should be quick enough to avoid any damaging blows. 

Linus, understanding your career I can see why you feel there was nothing wrong with what happened. However think about this outside of the realm of your job to understand that a 10 year old girl on AVERAGE will end up hurting themselves just slightly enough to put themselves out of commission. Or like other people have said she will tire herself out.

While I agree that most 10 year olds don't scare me (barring knowing the one in this story), the issue at hand is not the tasing. It was deemed lawful, and the mom allowed it.

It's not some cop going on a rampage tasing all little kids. It's not unlawful use of force. It's not wrong. It may be a bit more than is needed, but oh well. It lasted a whole 1-5 seconds, the girl learned her lesson, and she wont be acting up anytime soon.


This is akin to corporal punishment in private schools: If the school allows it, and the parents are fine with it, tough noogies to the kids and outsiders that think it's wrong.




Think of it as an electrical spanking. ;)
