    Ozark Police Officer Dustin Bradshaw Uses Taser on Arkansas 10-Year-Old Girl

    OZARK, Ark. (Nov. 18) -- A police officer in a small Arkansas town used a stun gun on an unruly 10-year-old girl after he said her mother gave him permission to do so. Now the town's mayor is calling for an investigation into whether the Taser use was appropriate.
    According to a report by Officer Dustin Bradshaw, obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, police were called to the Ozark home Nov. 11 because of a domestic disturbance. When he arrived, the girl was curled up on the floor, screaming, the report said.

    Police Chief Jim Noggle said Tasers are a safe way to subdue someone who's a danger to themself or others. No disciplinary action was taken against Bradshaw, he said.
    "We didn't use the Taser to punish the child — just to bring the child under control so she wouldn't hurt herself or somebody else," Noggle said.
    If the officer tried to forcefully put the girl in handcuffs, he could have accidentally broken her arm or leg, Noggle said.
    He said a touch of the stun gun — "less than a second" — stopped the girl from being unruly, and she was handcuffed, he said.

    I'm sorry, that's just not cool. You don't taze 10 year olds. A spanking works just fine, thanks.

    The cop who did this is a dolt. Taze him and put him in (unpaid) timeout.

    :(

    depends on how early you start training them. I suspect this is a case of letting the child grow up instead of raising her.

    But then I do not really know, just a theory.
