Alright...time for me to weigh in here. From what I know of tazers what he did for her was the light shock..if I read that correctly in the report. Which means it wasn't like what most of us see on reality or tabloid shows. They incapacitate the voluntary muscles and have been tested with pacemakers and defribulators and that is at their highest setting. The lowest setting is the shock with from what I understand stings a little. Does this mean they are the perfect weapon? No but in my opinion they can be used to subdue someone who is hurting/or could be hurting themselves or someone else. It is up to the discretion of the citizen or police officer to use and that obviously is something to consider however the latter does have department policies, state and federal laws to go by while the former has state and federal laws. Aside from this what I want to know is a few things that I may have missed in the report. Why did the mother call the cops? From what I understand the whole thing started over the child not wanting to take a bath right? From what I understand from the report the officer tried talking to the girl and warned her that he was going to taze her if she didn't calm down to which she kicked him.

If I am misunderstood on these things then correct me. One more note: I work in an elementary school. I work in special ed in a contained classroom of fifteen children with different disabilities ages six to nine years old. Two of our eight year olds are already 100 plus pounds and at least five foot two. These are not average but to me an average ten year old can be the size of most smaller adult females and on occasion males. My point here is that these aren't small children and can do damage to someone.
