Two Martinsville, IN police deputies suspended after using stun gun on child | Justice News Flash | JusticeNewsFlash Release
Old women, teenage girls, unarmed people who aren't being violent, and now a 10-year old?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.
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.
