    Cop Tases 10-Year-Old Girl

    Cop Tases 10-Year-Old Girl

    Arkansas mother suggested stun gun treatment for unruly daughter

    NOVEMBER 18--An Arkansas cop tasered an unruly 10-year-old girl after her mother called police to report that the child was crying, screaming, and refusing to go to bed. The tased girl, Kiara Medlock, is about 65 pounds and 4' 6", according to her father. Anthony Medlock, a truck driver who does not live with the fifth grader and her mother, provided TSG with a recent photo of his daughter, which can be seen at right.

    According to the below Ozark Police Department report, when Officer Dustin Bradshaw arrived at the residence last Thursday, he found the girl "screaming, kicking, and resisting every time her mother tried to touch her." Bradshaw added that, "Her mother told me to tase her if I needed to."

    After Kiara continued to refuse her mother's instructions, the cop concluded that "there was not going to be a peaceful resolution of the issue." Bradshaw warned the girl that she was "going to jail," but the child continued kicking and crying and resisted his attempt to handcuff her. During the tussle, Kiara "struck me with her legs and feet in the groin, reported Bradshaw, who countered with a brief "stun to her back" with his Taser.

    The child, not surprisingly, "immediately stopped resisting and was placed into handcuffs. She would not walk on her own and I had to carry her to my police car." Kiara was then transported to a youth shelter. (1 page)

    I think, even as much as she deserved it, this may have gone a bit far.

    Why dont parents believe in whacking their brats, seriously? If the parent didnt want to hit the brat, she shouldve at least just thrown here in her room and let her tire herself out.

    Weren't you the one who said we should give a cop shooting a man in the back time? He tases some retarded little girl and it went too far? You're a walking contradiction.

    I think we all know what the Bible says about sparing the taser.

    I think he could have hurt her more by trying to wrestle her into submission. However, I don't know if there is a physiological reason not to electrocute children. If people under a certain age are more likely to have serious health effects from it then that is something cops need to know. Otherwise I say zap away.

    Tasing is not a replacement for parenting.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Instead of tasing this child, why not call for a supervisor and some backup? I think a couple of female officers would have resolved this incident without the use of a stun gun.

    Or maybe call some one like CPS or a juvenile hall

    1. The cop needs to lose his job. 10 year-olds DO NOT go to jail... ever! They go to juvevile hall.

    2. Tazing a 46 pound child is beyond unacceptable.

    3. This is disgusting.

    4. Handcuffing a 10 year-old is UNACCEPTABLE.

    I hope her father sues the police for all they are worth.

    And if they refuse to go? I think force is sometimes necessary, and handcuffs are considered an acceptable means of restraint in our society. What alternative would you have them use on violent minors who refuse to cooperate and pose a danger to the physical well-being of themselves or the officer?
    2. Tazing a 46 pound child is beyond unacceptable.
    Size doesn't matter, if a dwarf attacks a police officer then taze them. If a child tries to shoot you, kill them. The law doesn't have a weight limit.
    4. Handcuffing a 10 year-old is UNACCEPTABLE.
    Whether or not you believe this was appropriate, I would just like to point out that photographs (or even drawings) of the incident could be considered child pornography here in Virginia, and probably in most states.
