A 3-year-old girl suffered a minor puncture wound Friday when she was struck by a barb from an electric stun gun fired by a patrolman running down a fleeing parole violator

One of two barbs attached to electrified wires on the weapon hit the suspect, and the other struck the nearby child, who was with her parents, SDPD public-affairs Lt. Andra Brown said. The girl did not receive an electric shock


That's some fine policework, Lou.

So cops are trying to fire tasers while running?

Thank goodness he wasn't trying to fire his gun.

FTFA - "Her parents displayed an "understanding" attitude about the mishap while interacting with police, Brown said."

One is left to assume that they displayed this attitude once they were forced into the party escort submission position.

The misleading quality of that headline puts both CNN and Fox News to shame.

I don't know whether to be grateful they weren't shooting at the person fleeing or to advocate that the officer be fired? Maybe both? I kind of feel like "Dear Police Officers, If we want our toddlers to be accidentally shot (or tasered) we have gang-bangers for that. Your contribution is not required."

She wasn't shocked, so I would think that her "minor puncture wound" will be better by the time they stick a SpongeBob Band-Aid on it.

fleeing parole violator

That should clue us in to the fact that he's not an immediate threat to anyone. Nobody should ever have weaponry used on them simply for the act of fleeing, unless they're an immediate danger to surrounding people. Honestly, if one of the parents instinctively shot the police officer for injuring their child, I'd love to be on that jury, I'd let them off and pay them for damages.

If the police want to do the right thing, they can pay for the patch up and buy the girl a toy. Accidents do happen, even with cops.

Her parents displayed an "understanding" attitude about the mishap while interacting with police, Brown said.

"Yes, Officer. I understand that I'd prefer not to be shot during an "accidental" wrong-address drug raid. I understand that I'd prefer not to be pulled over and my car searched every time I drive in this town. I understand that it would be nice if I not be arrested and lost in the system for a while for the crime of "obstructing an investigation" or "assaulting a police officer." I understand that it would be preferable that I not assault your nightstick with my gut, groin, head, and knees. So . . . I understand that I'm just going to genuflect to you and back away."

ALL three-year-olds should be tased...daily. ALL of them.

"Her parents displayed an "understanding" attitude about the mishap while interacting with police"

Then went straight to their attorney's office to file a lawsuit.

But hey...at least this didn't happen in downtown Manhattan, where the cop would have shot the perp dead and wounded nine innocent bystanders. ;^)

The SDPD isn't going be to sued for millions of dollars to make up for the child's lost innocence or some other BS? I'm confused.

Give the kid a Scooby Doo bandaid and a plastic "wounded in the line of duty" badge/medal.

Ah, now it makes sense. Where'd you find that?

I guess my understanding of "absolutely necessary" is different than cops.

Now we're not given good details of why he was running away, but "fleeing parole violator" implies that he was running away from police, not "coming right at them".

So were the police not fast enough to keep up with him? Did they not have a radio to call for backup, or a car to chase him with?

Or was an overweight cop just too lazy and decided he'd taze the guy running away next to innocent bystanders because he couldn't keep up?

In Houston, I know the answer to that question, I'm sure you know the answer in your hometown too.

JohnCarter: Don't these have an "effective" range of about 10'? That is some pretty crappy shooting by Johnnie Law Dog.


No, smartguy. Different cartridges have different length capabilities. Our department carries 21 ft. cartridges. You can get 15, 25 and I believe, 30 ft. as well. Theres a whole lot of people in this thread that know zero about Tasers and how they function. I shot a guy with a Taser at about 6 ft and only one probe hit him. The other probe hit his loose clothing. Thankfully he was touching the wire and completed the circuit. When the probes are fired, they come out of the cartridge at a slight "V" angle and of course that angle increases as the distance from the Taser increases.

The angle shouldn't increase.

Exactly what I was thinking. I always display an "understanding" attitude when interacting with folks that will shoot a 3 year old with a taser (either through malice or incompetence) and also carry real guns.
