    Two Martinsville, IN police deputies suspended after using stun gun on child

    Two Martinsville, IN police deputies suspended after using stun gun on child | Justice News Flash | JusticeNewsFlash Release

    Legal News for Indiana Personal Injury Attorneys. Two police officers have been suspended with pay after they allegedly tased an unruly 10-year-old boy at an Indiana day care center.
    Old women, teenage girls, unarmed people who aren't being violent, and now a 10-year old?

    I think police need some better clarification on use of tasers. It's supposed to be an alternative to lethal force, not a compliance tool for uncooperative people. Tasers can and do kill people, using one on a child is reckless.

    A 10-year old? Are you telling me two police officers can't restrain a child without risking his death? I'm not a big guy, but I've never met a 10-year old who I couldn't overpower. Two guys, both likely bigger than me, who are trained to do this shouldn't have trouble.

    There's also no circumstance in which a police officer should slap anybody. It doesn't serve any purpose in apprehension.

    I want to see pictures of this child-hercules that couldn't be stopped without a few thousand volts of electricity.

    Why couldn't the day care employees handle this?

    I don't think it was the wisest move on the police part. What is not reported is what actions were taken prior to the tasing to control/calm the child that did not work. Maybe the police tried alternatives that did not work and felt this was the only way to stop the child from possibly hurting anyone or the child itself.

    My first thought was not much of a day care if they have to call the police. They can't handle a 10 year old.

    Why on earth is a 10 year old in a day care?

    Things like this are why I don't like the idea of the police being issued tasers in the first place. Since they're 'non-lethal' some of them are apparently of the opinion that it's okay to use a taser just to shut someone up.

    Presumably because it requires both his parents to be at work so as to provide for their child in Obama's America?

    Yes, a trend that started before Obama was even born is clearly his fault.

    I don't know. Some 10 year old kids are meant to be tasered, like this one. Or would you prefer he rip your heart out?



    And sometimes it is appropriate to taser kittens before they tear you to pieces.



    So don't judge those officers. They were obviously in fear for their very lives.

    He is ten, I would expect him to be in school, not a daycare.

    Or depending on how mature he was, left at home by himself,

    Heck I was in elementary and left by my self more then a few times (around grade 2-3)

    Upon arriving at the day care, the two unidentified police authorities reportedly found the child incessantly kicking and shouting. As a means of preventing the child from harming anyone, including himself, the officers reportedly slapped and then tased the young boy.
    slapped and tased, for kicking and screaming, if the day care centre can't handle that, they shouldn't be in business

    I guess there's two threads on this topic?

    This 10 yo was hit with a 'Stun Gun' not a 'Taser'. Actually this article has both Stun and Taser for what was used to subdue this kid?

    A Taser is the yellow marked gun that shoots out two electrical prongs which are connected to two electrical wires. But this isn't what the kid was shot with, he was tapped with a 'Stun Gun'. The media doesn't even know the damn difference between the two weapons! Jesus! This is not even news worthy.

    The reason why cops use Stun Guns on unruly kids is because when they usually try to subdue them the officers end up leaving bruises on their arms from the kids struggling and resisting so much. A stun gun doesn't leave a bruise. I bet that little rug rat complies with the day care next time.
