    Cincinnati police officer on 'restricted duty' after allegedly tasing 11year-old girl

    A Cincinnati police officer was placed on “restricted duty” after allegedly shocking an 11-year-old girl with a stun gun at a local grocery store, authorities said.
    The officer responded to the store Monday to investigate “several female juveniles allegedly stealing items from the store,” a statement from police said.
    After telling the group to stop, one of the girls continued to walk away. That is when the officer, who was not named, fired the stun gun and struck the teen in her back.

    I'm sure the cop felt his life was in danger from the 11 year old who was walking away.
    And some people just can't understand why people are losing faith in our cops.

    What? You want to let a criminal walk away with a stolen pack of Skittles?

    She's just lucky he didn't shoot her with a real gun.

    Seems like they are just being lazy, just taze or shoot instead of putting in the effort to apprehend without the need for weapons

    I know, right?
    Kids do stupid stuff. It's part of growing up. People have died from being tazed


    Reuters finds 1,005 deaths in U.S. involving Tasers, largest accounting to date

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 1,000 people in the U.S. have died after police stunned them with Tasers, and the stun gun was ruled to be a cause or contributing factor in 153 of those deaths, a Reuters examination found.

    In the most thorough accounting to date of fatal police encounters involving the paralyzing stun guns, Reuters found that nine in 10 of those who died were unarmed and one in four suffered from mental illness or neurological disorders. Taser International Inc, the stun gun’s manufacturer, said its weapons are almost never to blame when someone dies after being stunned. Taser this year changed its name to Axon Enterprise Inc

    So do we tolerate cops taking these kinds of risks on our children, when it's obvious that their lives aren't in danger?

    Mr. One,

    That is pretty shocking news.

    11 year olds are "teens"?

    (On its face, this seems excessive. But that wording from the article stood out to me.)

    I noticed that, too. But the tasing was excessive either way.

    I seriously think we need to find out who is teaching these police officers what to do in these situations. It seems like many of them are getting some seriously bad training if they constantly feel they need to pull a gun or taze a child. Its happening far too often and seems to be getting worse.

    The tasing was intended to make her grow up a little faster, like a good swift kick in the arse.

    You mean, whether she got it going or coming? In the back or in the front?
