Tasering the Kids

Posted on Wednesday 18 November 2009

Wow.  From Ozark, Arkansas:

According to a police report, the officer was called to the home by the mother and witnessed the child kicking and screaming.

The officer’s statement said the girl’s mother, Kelly Hamlert, told him to use a Taser on her if he needed to.The officer did shock the girl after he said she kicked him in the groin.”He had no other choice. He had to get the child under control,” said Ozark police Chief Jim Noggle.

Ten? Mom’s clearly not well-equipped for parenting.

This girl’s got more problems than being tasered, I’d say.  Poor kid…

    Absolutely shocking :-)

    I’ll bet that officer is getting all sorts of razzing from his fellow officers. A ten-year old!? And your only option to calm her down involved the use of potentially deadly force!? Thank Bob he had a Taser, or else he might have had to empty his .357 Magnum into her!
