    Good point, and I don't know how many times I have discussed this the majority of the general public just doesn't understand how many injuries the tazer has prevented.

    A tazer is an excellent tool to obtain compliance with someone without having to use physical force, which very commonly results in injury.

    Yes, there are tazer deaths, and they are investigated. The majority of tazer deaths result when either the tazer is used too many times consecutively on a subject (bad bad police man!) or when the subject is on many drugs and the strains already on their heart and increased by the use of the tazer (OMG Those police are supposed to already know what level of drugs are in someone right?!?!? ...stupid public).

    In the long run, zapping someone with a tazer (i like the drive stun where you pull off the projectile end and just zap em for a second like an old "stun gun") usually guarantees that they will comply and you will be capable of getting them secured.

    Of course, our general public will continue to talk about tazers like they know what the **** they are talking about.

    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.

    Seriously though, the tazer may have been a bit much. I blame stupid mom for telling him several times beforehand that he should taze the kid. And I blame the cops parents for creating this man who was ignorant enough to think that its okay if the kid's mom says so.


    But I don't see you placing any blame on the mother of the child or anything. Seriously who the **** calls the police because a bratty 10 year old won't go to sleep.
    of course the mother is a moron as well. that's a given.

    i find it hard to believe the girl could actually injure him. a little psychology could have gone a long here........

    Ever had kids? Ever babysat kids? If you answred yes to those, tell me honestly, have you ever had or babysat an unruly child that throws a hissy fit over bedtime or a candy bar?

    I have a nice scar on my shoulder from a 9 year old who threw a tantrum over a piece of playground equipment and stabbed me with a pencil.

    Psychology?

    WTF do you think cops are, all medical professionals rolled into one person?

    She has a mental disorder, what type of psychology would you suggest would work here that mom didn't already try and the officer didn't already try with her prior to her kicking him in the balls.

    This is my problem with "the public" when it comes to them making comments on the action of an officer, and part of the reason I put little weight into what "the public" says. "The public" over simplifies an incident by thinking that things and people act according to exact rules, as they might have reacted themselves.

    Agree'd. It's easy to look at any situation with hindsight and say "Well, I would have done it this way..." And I am disgusted with people who will buy these media frenzies over the couple of outrageous stories about cops and partake in these massive ****storms and completely ignore everything else that Police Agencies have done. Everyone that complains about the Police probably doesn't know the first thing about Community Policing, who their Police Chief is, what sort of outreach programs they offer, or any of the other services law enforcement officials offer.

    Look, I agree that the ideal situation would have been to have a psychiatrist show up and magically calm the girl down. But let's be real. This incident happened at night in the Ozarks. Whether he made the right decision to take her in to custody is available for debate, I have no idea what other options he had before that. But once that decision had been made, I think the taser was an option and I don't think he did anything wrong in using it.

    In all honesty I don't advocate using a tazer on a 10 year old, but I have no earthly idea how the incident took place and I never trust a news source when it comes to covering an officer's use of the tazer. The media hates the tazer, and they hate on the police any time we have to do something that doesn't look "nice" and "cuddly" to the public. Sometimes we have to do **** that isn't pretty, its a part of the job.

    Maybe the people who complain should register with their local Police Agencies to NOT receive help in an emergency and save us all the trouble.

    a mental disorder? where did you get that? who the hell knows how this girl has been parented, if the mother is suggesting a cop taser her?

    and why was the cop carrying her to the shower?
