Authorities said a Tempe school resource officer accidentally fired her department-issued Taser during a demonstration, striking a student in the arm with one probe.

So close and yet so far.

"Accidentally".  I can't tell you how many 8th graders I've dreamed about "accidentally" tasing.

"Tempe resource officer accidentally shoots student with Taser"


At least that's what the officer will claim in their report. For anyone else it would be considered assault on a person.

I want to use a taser on kids for "behavior modification" but ethics boards won't let me.  *pout*

What's the big deal ? The kid was probably going to pee itself anyway.

They're highway construction workers, obviously.

The second probe may have missed, but that was no accident.

So, the probes just go anywhere, willy nilly? What was it, a scattergun taser, like for crowd control? Oh, shiat...I prolly shoudn't have said that.

Had to go to the hospital to remove a probe? The hell for?

Just grab the cord and tug it like you're trying to start a mower.


That's how the police do it after deciding you've had enough zappage for one day.

/You'd think the probes would be desgined with a retractable barb.

The resource officer won't be at the school while the incident is investigated.

That'll show him.

But that would involve a certain level of concern for the tasing victim, so it's unlikely to happen.

Overstimulated guard had a little accident involving students. It's all right, not everyone can be as smooth as the regular teachers when it comes to inappropriate behavior with the students. They had four years of study and practice. The school cop not so much. Too much excitement and suddenly he's launching a probe into someone by accident while playing with his weapon.

Honestly I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. Can't read the article on my mobile browser but I'm assuming he's a younger guy, rather inexperienced.

FWIW, the article mentions that the officer is a woman.

Probing a 14 y/o girl?  That'll get ya on a list.

Seems to me that if you were to taze a kid in front of the whole school, and that kid happened to crap his/her pants, that would prove to be a fairly effective demonstration. Too bad that's not what happened here.

I seem to recall a female officer 'covering' a suspect who was being handcuffed...
 
2014-03-08 02:46:27 PM
Actually that is exactly what you do. Eighth-graders would pester you until you discharged it because they want to see it in action. They even volunteer their friends.

Don't forget the courts have already ruled it was ok for that New Mexico Trooper to taser a 10 year old for refusing to clean his car for him.

I'm sort of suprised this made the news.

Keep your booger off the bang switch unless you fully intend to discharge your weapon. That includes tasers. So I'd say this isn't an accident, its negligence. They aren't a cop, but they were entrusted with a taser, so I'm going to assume they won't be charged with negligent discharge. Not like anyone who owns one for personal use, no sir.

And one of them is my own nephew.

Yup!

I love how:
1) the handcuffing officer looks at her
2) she holsters her weapon afterwards


I have to admit I wonder what would have happened if the incoming cruiser came in a few seconds earlier and the bullet had actually hit the suspect.
