You know those parties named “Everybody Gets Laid!” or something similar? Well, the police should throw a party called “Everybody Gets Tasered!” It would apparently be really popular.
School officials confirm that an 11-year-old, 6th grade male was tasered by a school resource officer. They say the boy was physically assaulting a female 6th grader and refused to listen to verbal commands to stop. As a last resort the officer tasered the boy twice – once to get the students separated and a second time when the boy tried to attack the girl again.
The male student was taken to juvenile detention – the female was treated by emergency personnel and released to her parents.
The male 6th grader sounds like a real dick. But do we really need to taser kids? You’re telling me this “school resource officer” couldn’t physically restrain a 11 year old? What the hell is a “school resource officer” anyway? Apparently one of the resources is tasers!
I don’t like the increasing use of tasers by law enforcement personel. It strikes me as a cattleprod for humans. I can’t really think of anything more dehumanizing… though maybe that’s the point.
I really think we need a national discussion about tasers and how and when they are used. Things are really getting out of hand in this country and something needs to be done about it.
Update: Sounds like the 11 year old in question was 200 pounds!!! Holy fuck, fatty! Lay off the cheezy-poofs. Still, I don’t think we should be cool with tasering fat kids. Sounds like a bit of a double-standard. Also interesting is the fact that the police internal investigation took all of 20 hours.
Also, the fat kid started this shit by taking the 6th grade girl’s food and refusing to pay up. Oh man, fatty, you are really hitting every fat stereotype, aren’t you? Still, I don’t think he needed to be tasered, but I’m not going to lose too much sleep over this ravenous loon.
I guess this ties into our other national debate — are Americans too fat?
Yes. End of debate.
