Police Taser Seated 8 Year Old Girl
Lake Posted date: November 09, 2013 In:
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."
