A police officer in Arkansas was suspended with pay after he tasered a 10-year-old girl who was throwing a fit on the floor. The officer was not suspended for electrocuting the girl. He was suspended because he did not have a camera with him to record the incident. The police department was probably pissed about the camera thing, because they figured footage like that would’ve won them first place on America’s Funniest Home Videos. Ugh.
It all started when the 10-year-old refused to take a shower and go to bed. The girl did what most 10-year-olds do when they don’t get their way – she threw a fit. Most good mothers would give the girl a cocktail or a bong to calm her down. But this dumb ass mother called the police.
When Officer Dustin Bradshaw showed up to the home, he found the girl (who is 4’6″ and weighs 65 pounds) screaming and kicking. According to the police report, the mother told Officer Dustin that he could tase her if he needed to. Officer Bradshaw wrote in the report that he tried to get the girl to stop by telling her she was going to jail, but homegirl was not scared. She is obviously a proud graduate of Latarian Milton’s University of Hood Rat Stuff.
Officer Dustin stepped up his game and tried to handcuff the girl. She fought with him and ended up kicking him in the nuts. That’s when Officer Dustin said he “lightly stunned” her in the back. The girl stopped fighting and Officer Dustin was able to handcuff her. She wouldn’t walk, so he had to carry her to the police car. She was then transported to a youth shelter.
The police chief pretty much stood by his officer’s decision. He said that the girl will be charged with disorderly conduct and the officer won’t face additional disciplinary action.
The girl’s father however wants the Arkansas State Police to investigate the incident. If they won’t, he’s going to ask the FBI for help. He said, “My daughter does not deserve to be tased and be treated like an animal.”
Everyone is going CRAZY! Babies are getting slapped by strange pepaws at Wal-Mart! Kids are getting maced by drag queens on the subway! And now little girls are getting tasered by police officers while their mothers shake their heads in approval. What the hell is next? We shouldn’t be surprised if we hear about a kindergarten teacher engaging in a shoot out with her students on the playground.
