fta His partner was able to bring her to the ground, but then the younger girl jumped on his back,

mmmmm... pork sandwich

How did he know she wasn't a zombie?

Actually, a taser sounds appropriate in that situation.

Yup, it was either that or continue to try to restrain her physically, which could have been harmful to her and him.

The average american cop can't even fight off a 14 year old girl? No wonder they just shoot everybody in the back.
 
2014-09-02 01:13:40 AM  
If she had braces, should have zapped her like Bond did Jaws in "The Spy Who Loved Me."

FTFA: "While trying to detain the 14-year-old girl, the 16-year-old began pushing the officer away and took a fighting stance"


Fail. The cop should have responded with a resounding Hadoken and zapped them both with electric glory.

I've had a lot of problems with cops using their authority to act like bullies.  That being said, I don't have a problem with this.  This girl had to have known that there would be consequences for physically attacking a police officer.

He wasn't shot in the back...all in the front.


Still, I agree he should be alive. Proportionality, my good fellow. Mmmmm yes.

See, this is why Captain Kirk's phaser had different settings - stun, torture, tickle, kill, maim, disintegrate, whatever - I'm not saying we need Romulan disruptors, but it would be nice to have options both ways, up and down the punishment scale.

This girl had to be white or else she would probably have been shot 6 times.

The officer pulled out his electronic gun

I've never heard of a taser referred to as an "electronic gun".  Why not just call it a phaser and be done with it?  Was it set to "stun" or "kill"?

Why would a 14 year old girl jump on a police officer's back? The cops should go taser the parents for not potty training their kid.

Seriously... if someone tries to bite you, Tazer should be the minimum response.

My oldest was about 10 and I was trying to discipline him he turned and tried to bite me.  Without even thinking, I slapped him across the face and he lost his balance and landed on the ground.  Know what, that memory never left him.  Bet she'll think twice about doing something like this again.

I can't vouch for it with absolute certainty, but at 14 I'm pretty sure I had the good judgment not to physically assault a police officer. So, as much as I want to be outraged by this, I'm afraid I can't.

I was six years old and my parents had a dinner party, and i was running around bat shiat crazy.  I knocked a drink over onto a Dr. buddy of my dads, and he grabbed me and told me to settle down, and i bet him, he grabbed me and bit me back.  I never bit anyone again.

Stun gun and tazers.

Are the name interchangeable? There are two kinds of devices that can deliver an electric shock mean to temporarily disable an individual, one has immobile built in electrodes and can be made by anyone with an above basic knowledge of electricity and the other shoots the electrodes and is a bit more complex to build because of that even if the electrical principle is the same.

Paradoxically I always understood that a tazer was the device that shot the electrodes  and the stun gun was like a very short cattle prod. I'm are wrong or right?

You do know that Romulan disruptors (and the Klingon variety, too!) had different settings, right? They had stun settings, just like Starfleet-issued phasers.

Thomas A. Swift's Electronic Rifle.

Yep, they sure did make science fiction a reality.


Sadly it's not a phaser. It doesn't fire a beam that moves at light speed that can be modulated via phase amplitude between Stun and Kill. No, it just shoots a couple wires that run a current, in almost exactly the same way a TENS unit does. Just... A lot more powerfully.

And in this case? Yes, it was definitely warranted. Tasers are pretty thoroughly nonlethal in the majority of cases. Chokeholds, however, can be.
 
2014-09-02 02:30:39 AM  
So would you prefer she got a bullet to the head, or a broken wrist..? Taser seems like a good choice in this case.
 
2014-09-02 02:32:00 AM  
I see almost everyone here is getting their rocks off at the idea of high voltage electric shocks for 14 year old girls.

Do try to remember that the original intent of Tazers in the US was ONLY to use them as an alternative to shooting the person.

Most countries actually train their police to be able to safely restrain a 14 year old girl in these circumstances. (And I guess US prison guards are similarly trained)

Yes, but all bets are off if you try to bite me.  A human bite? I would literally (in the real meaning, not figurative) rather have a rabid raccoon bite me. At least then I KNOW I won't die with prompt medical care.

Still, I hear you. You'd be surprised what leverage and some knowledge can do, plus pure rage.

Hey, they tried. (lol) And agree. If more people knew what fists alone could do accidentally. And people fall down and smack their heads. Bad scenes. Who wants to tell the cops: "I...I didn't mean to.."

And it's not like we'd be happier if a cop beat someone to death.

Keeping hands off others in a non-happy way ought to happen less.

It's for her protection, too. Drawing blood could infect her with hepatitis, HIV, syphilis, or even cooties.

Meh.  People get all in a tizzy about the magical Taser that stops assaults with no injury to police or the subject.  I guess if they had physically taken her to the ground and broke an arm or dislocated a shoulder, there would be no news.  But the magic taser gets everyone bent out of shape.  Anyone that thinks a 6'3" 240lb officer won't hurt a 115 lb girl in a hands on take down is dreaming.  Taser is the least damaging option and this is simply more proof.  What idiot would think this was a bad outcome?

It's simple really: don't want to get tased?  then don't resist arrest.

People do die from being tased with some regularity.

But this seems like a textbook example of a Taser being used correctly, so who cares?
