Police Taser Seated 8 Year Old Girl

You've no doubt seen a lot of articles in the press lately of taser 
happy police officers, but this one may take the cake. This time, the 
victim was an 8 year old girl who was sitting on the floor when a 
police officer tasered her. The incident happened in Pierre, South Dakota.

The girl's babysitter called the police because the girls was acting 
out with a knife. Allegedly the girl had cut herself on the leg and 
was holding the knife to her own chest. When the cop arrived, the 
girl, who was sitting on the floor, pointed the knife at him, so he 
drew his taser. The girl then pointed the knife at her own chest 
again, and that is when the police officer tasered her. The little 
girl spent twenty four hours in the hospital under strict medical 
supervision afterward, having received a full blast of 50,000 volts!

Not surprisingly, the officer's superior is taking his side, claiming 
he may have, "saved the juvenile's life." The officer who tased the 
"juvenile" remains on duty.

The girl's father, Bobby Jones, doesn't see things this way, saying, 
"Tasers are for grown adults, not 8-year-old girls. They say it was 
for her own safety, but there is no justification for that."
