Arkansas Leads the Way

Arkansas police officer uses Taser on 10-year-old girl: "Called to a home to help control an 'unruly child,' an an Ozark, Arkansas police officer was given permission by the girl's mother to use a Taser to subdue the child."

Hat tip to John ("Arkie") Duke. (No relation to the ones in Hazzard, or so he claims.)

You're kidding me, right??? This is unbelievable.

They're tough on crime in Arkansas.

I think you have to wonder about any parent who would give the police the OK to taser their ten-year-old.

Just shows we've got to stop mollycoddling these gamins. The other day I was at a busy intersection near a school. As the light changed, no fewer than 4 cars ran the red light and the 10-year-old girl working as crossing guard did nothing. Nothing!

What are we paying these kids for, anyway?
