I am Arm-Chair Quarterbacking. The taser was used as a easy way out. What happened to the Proper Levels of Force? A well-trained Police Officer should be able to handle a ten year old girl with Hand to Hand Tactics. Sounds like the officer jump up to a higher used of force without trying a lower level first. When was the officer last trained in Proper Defensive Techniques?
Lets check his training file for starters. Train, Train and Train for a higher level of professionalism. Yearly documentation on all training is a must.
