Taser Use on a 10 Year old

"US officer who used stun gun on unruly 10-year-old fired for violating police policy


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The police officer in a small Arkansas town who used a stun gun on an unruly 10-year-old girl has been fired for violating department policy - not for using the Taser itself but for failing to use the camera attached to it, according to the town's mayor.
Ozark Mayor Vernon McDaniel said he received notice of Officer Dustin Bradshaw's firing on Monday morning. Bradshaw previously was suspended for seven days with pay. His termination was effective Friday.
"The policy that Officer Bradshaw failed to obey is failure to have his camera placed on his Taser," police Chief Jim Noggle wrote in a memo to McDaniel. "It is the officer's duty to insure all of his equipment is present and in working order."
A phone listing for Bradshaw couldn't immediately be found Monday. The mayor said Bradshaw would receive unpaid vacation and holiday time.
Police were called to the home Nov. 11 after the girl's mother couldn't get her to take a shower.
Bradshaw's report says the girl was "violently kicking and verbally combative" when Bradshaw tried to take her into custody, and she kicked him in the groin. He said he delivered "a very brief drive stun to her back."
"Her mother told me to tase her if I needed to," Bradshaw wrote.
The girl, who hasn't been identified, wasn't injured. She was taken to the Western Arkansas Youth Shelter in Cecil.
The police chief's memo said Bradshaw had been warned earlier to turn on the Taser's camera and to wear his lapel microphone."

Who cares how old she was, there can be some big kids out there. Not using all the provided equipment seems lame, but if a mic and visual can save your career, so be it.

Does anyone remember the 2 security guards (American) who tasered a father holding his newborn child because he wanted to get out of the bedroom and walk around for a bit?

Should have used OC and she would have jumped right into the shower.

I wonder if that officer has ever heard of a basket hold......

I think i would have given the mother the phone number for CAS and walked out.....

Because when your parenting skills are that of a retarded half brained chimp, you feel the need to telephone 911 so some stranger can tell your child why they should shower. :rant:



Aaahhhhhhh......

Thanks for that. I knew there was a logical answer...... :mrgreen:
