    Im saying he could have been kicked in the balls again while trying to restrain a wildly flailing about individual, regardless of age. This could have caused serious long term physical damage. Sorry, long term injury to balls vs one half second shock causing no long term injury. You do the math.

    And no, when speaking of injuries related to restraining someone when they are highly resistive, I was talking about the large potential for the girl to be injured while resisting his attempts to restrain her.




    Dont blabber on.
    This proves you have no interest in actually trying to understand the decision making process involved in doing police work.

    Move on troll.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    His training should have taught him how to strategically restrain her with minimum contact so as to avoid any further blows by the girl. At the end of the day she is hardly matching in strength so its fair to say he stepped out of line with the gun.

    And no, when speaking of injuries related to restraining someone when they are highly resistive, I was talking about the large potential for the girl to be injured while resisting his attempts to restrain her.

    The girl just got a few thousand volts going through her body and you spew stuff like this.

    Cute comment but im not going anywhere just yet.
    Obviously his decision making skills where impaired by the impact to his nut sack, nothing else would explain his tazering of a small child. Its uncalled for.

    It does. It is called a taser.

    Cop Tases 10-Year-Old Girl - November 18, 2009

    I think, even as much as she deserved it, this may have gone a bit far.
    Wait....a little girl was arrested for not going to bed? I haven't read the thread yet, please tell me I'm not the first to point this out.

    Ever been tazed?

    Didn't think so. Why do you speak of Injury when you know nothing of what being tazed feels like?

    The tazer doesn't injure people, and doesn't kill idiots who aren't hopped up on drugs when used properly.

    Weeeeeell........

    I have yet to form a positive opinion about anyone who was involved in this incident: girl, mom or cop.

    But, Caine is correct: it doesn't take much strength to seriously injure someone kicking them in the nads. A ruptured testicle is a serious and long-term problem that can change your life.

    Tasers... we didn't have them when I was a cop. Maybe I'm not really qual'd to comment on their use. My opinion is they are not as safe as billed and possibly overused, but I've never trained on the modern tasers or been zapped with one, so my opinion might not be as well-founded as I'd like.

    I still find it hard to see using one on a 10yo girl, but then again I wasn't there...she might have looked like the demon child from The Exorcist for all I know.

    Still, if I were a Judge hearing this as a case, I'd be sorely tempted to tell each of these individuals in turn...
    Girl: You're a horrible brat who needs her ass beat with a belt every day for the next three months so you learn to respect your mother's authority.
    Mother: Your parenting skills are nonexistant; you are a disgrace to motherhood. Get your frigging tubes tied TODAY.
    Cop: WTF were you thinking? Did it not occur to you that tasering a 10 year old girl, whether it was justifiable or not, was surely going to make news, and it DAYUM sure was not going to make your or your department look good to the general public??

    Heh. My stepdad was a cop too. And he had (and still has) the "old school" mentality to some extent, Italian Catholic that he is. And he and my mom gave me my share of spankings (with paddles and belts, hands being too delicate), soap insertions, and "traditional" punishment with a strictly hierarchical relationship. That lasted until the day I was taller and heavier than him and slammed him into the wall opposite my bedroom door when he tried to **** with me again, after which he never tried to "discipline" me again. The mark is still there.

    I suppose boys will be boys, and girls are different, after all, even if this one ain't exactly sugar and spice. And I suppose that she'll never be able to get the power that I got as a result of her unchosen sex. And even if she's able to eventually overpower her mother, it'll mean nothing if she brings some man into the picture to beat her down for her. But honestly, now...that's the kind of mentality more prevalent in fundamentalist Muslim states and such than an advanced Western country, which is why the good ole' U S of A sticks out like a sore thumb compared to the other Western democracies when it comes to our attitudes on this.

    So 3000 volts shooting through your body doesnt hurt?

    Taser International says more than 5,000 police agencies use its product, that it is safe to use on anyone weighing at least 60 pounds.
