LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A police officer in a small Arkansas town used a stun gun on an unruly 10-year-old girl after he said her mother gave him permission to do so. Now the town's mayor is calling for an investigation into whether the Taser use was appropriate.

According to a report by Officer Dustin Bradshaw, obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, police were called to the Ozark home November 11 because of a domestic disturbance.When he arrived, the girl was curled up on the floor, screaming, the report said.

Bradshaw's report said the girl screamed, kicked and resisted any time her mother tried to get her in the shower before bed.

I understand and know some kids can be very obnoctious but going as far as using a tazer on a child certianly is not an option especially since the tazers are known to cause death in some people, IMO this officer should be removed from duty and the mother who told the officer to do it should be psycholocically evaluated, Whats this country coming to? A sad state of affairs for sure,

I have a 10 year old daughter and this is just plain sick. When should it be okay to use a stun gun on a child? NEVER.
If she was acting up to the point that they thought a taser would be appropriate, then she obviously needed some sort of mental help. I would be wondering why the mother called the police instead of an ambulance? Because if my daughter was curled up on the floor screaming because I wanted her to take a shower before bed, I'd be very concerned about her mental health.
Permission or no permission, that cop shouldn't have a job anymore. Tasering a little girl? Really, he should have known better.

Most cops consider tasers great toys. They use them for what they call "pain compliance". In the regular world, hurting someone until they obey you is called "torture".

The cops I've debated it with disagree with my stance (big surprise), but I feel like the taser is designed to be used in situations one step down from using your gun. If a little girl curled up on the floor yelling means "deadly threat" to this particular cop, at the very least, he's got incredibly poor judgement.

Mother's permission or not, tasers kill people sometimes. Without knowing and understanding the individual's medical history and condition (any medications, whatever), tasering someone is not much different than playing russian roulette with that person's life.

The cop should be fired (but he won't), and if the mother actually gave permission for someone to taser her kid, she should be tied to a fixed object and beaten to death with a whiffle-ball bat.

Two adults couldn't physically restrain a 10 year old girl? This is one of the sickest things I've ever heard.

I hate these tasers.  I think it just gives these cops, alot of which are cowards anyways, a reason to "play God."  Now at the first sign of disobedience, they just whip out their toys and start shocking folks.  It makes me sick.  All you have to do is go on Youtube and type in Police Brutality and dozens of vids will come up.  And you know what the cops'll say, "We're just doing our job" or "You civilians don't know how it really is."  In alot of cases cops are good decent people but then you get D-Bags like this guy who can't even control a ten year old girl so he has to tase her.  Moses smell the roses!  (had to put that in)  And what was the mom thinking saying go ahead and tase the girl?  Where's Phil McGraw when you need him?

If I was that cop and got kicked in the beans by that 10 year old I think I would have immediately called the men in little white coats.  Something is mentally wrong with that child and her mother for even giving the permission to taze in the first place.

I think the funniest thing is that someone had to call the police because their 10 year old daughter wouldn't take a shower before bed.
Then again, if the mother had harmed the child in any way, even a smack on the butt, she could have been charged for abuse and jailed...so what the hell are you gonna do?
Personally, MY 10 year old would have been in that shower getting an ice cold shower clothes and all after i picked her/him up and PUT them there.
Naturally, I would be labeled abusive, jailed, and the child removed from my custody.
I actually feel the taser was a bit absurd, but...what's the alternative with a child that was doing what this child was doing? What could the parent have done with a completely out of control, lying on the floor screaming and physically kicking/hitting ten year old? Probably best the kid was removed from the home. Sounds like there are serious issues there.

This reminds me of the Wanda Sykes Show the otehr night when she was talking about the Grandma getting tazed and she said she thought it was getting out of hand. She then showed a video of a cop pulling over a Mom with two babies in the back seat. The babies were making their cooing noise and laughing and he told one of them to drop the rattle and the other strated laughing and he's yelling at both and warning them that if they didn't do what he said he would taze them and then he did. It was hilarious because it was a skit but this thing with the 10 year old is sick.

Bull, I would have never had the nerve to pull this crap on my Mom but just in case I did she would have dragged me into the bathroom, threw me in the tub, and then had a switch or belt waiting for me when I got done with the bath....now that was parenting B)

You're probably right on that one. One of my older posts

Although I agree with you, by today's standards we are no longer allowed to be parents. We are supposed to be our kids buddies now.

Bull? What? Did you read my post? They seem to say damn near the same thing.

Exactly. What people just aren't getting is that this fully grown and trained police officer would surely have been beaten to death by this ten year old criminal girl if it were not for his reliance on electric shock weaponry.

1.  You can take it to the bank that this poor kid has all sorts of issues.

2.  Ten years old is NOT when you decide to be a freaking parent.  

3.  Interesting that if the mom had smacked the kid chances are SHE would be charged.

Absolutely stupid out of hand situation.
