For years tazers have been a popular police weapon for subduing violent crims. But recently overzealous cops have come under fire for tazing folks that just didn’t need it. A certain outspoken college kid comes to mind.
If you thought that case was bad, you’ll want to see this news footage. It features an 11-year-old girl in Florida who was tazed by a police officer.
The cop alleges the girl punched him in the face. I don’t care whether she did or she didn’t. If you can’t restrain an 11-year-old without resorting to violence, it’s time to turn in your badge.
So what’s next? Tazing babies? I think it’s time the American police took a long look at themselves.
