first off the situation was bad.why make it worse by adding a brain dead cop into the equation.never ever ever call the cops.if this was my daughter you would not stand a chance.i would hurt you in so many sick ways they wouldnt jail me,they would call me crazy and give me a disability check.

As a law enforment officer, I can say the taser has prevented more injuries for officers and suspects. Unless you were there, you have no idea how she was tased in the head. She could have been falling down or trying to duck to avoid the taser. WHich would you rather have, to be tased for 5 seconds or a polyester pig pile fighting with you on the ground. You use common sense and tell me which one would result in less injuries. Point of the WHOLE story is she should have not ran, and maybe the parents should have done their job as parents instead of whining to the police department. For some reason everyone wants the police to raise their children, and when they dont like what we do, they complain. Raise you own children, we have other things to do.

I have a hard time reconciling that any 14yr old teenage girl cannot be controlled without an adult male or in police case usually a mob of male cops taking down a 'gasp' teenage girl criminal without tazing, shooting. Are current police officers such femmi-wimps that they cannot control a situation like this ? Get these gestapo types that cannot have enough brains to do their job off the street and having any power over the public. btw, I was a cop in the 70's and don't ever remember any incident of a young girl not being able to be controlled without killing her or turning her brains into electrical mush.

Interesting:

Hatcher said he returned to department headquarters and talked to Aikin, who had a bloodied lip and scratches from a fight.

Hatcher said he found the girl at George Molinas Park.

Hatcher said he got out of his vehicle, called to her and she ran in front of his patrol car across Monroe Street without looking for traffic.

Both were in a dead run when the Taser was fired, Hatcher said.

{Perhaps people are missing this detail...though it was probably not ideal seems to me that the girl may have been running into the street without being aware of traffic. If that was the case then perhaps what the officer did was actually save her life. The other aspect of this is that the officer should have had more information on the girl so as not to startle her as he did. And if she is texting an older man where is the investigation to who she is texting. The texter should be found and jailed for preying on a underage girl.}

Significant detail:

Hatcher said he got out of his vehicle, called to her and she ran in front of his patrol car across Monroe Street without looking for traffic.

{If she had been ran over and killed? Then what?}
