I just don’t understand what is wrong with these people. The Smoking Gun has the police report from the arresting officer — the one who arrested a 10-yr old girl who was refusing to take a shower. The officer writes that upon arriving at the house, he found the little girl “balled up in the floor crying and screaming” and that she began “screaming, kicking, and resisting every time her mother tried to touch her.”
So what does this rocket scientist of a man do? In his own words,
“… at this point I decided that there was not going to be a peaceful resolution of the issue. I moved her into the living room area and told her she was going to jail.”
‘Cause that’s going to calm her down. Not surprisingly, the girl continued kicking and crying and resisted arrest. We are talking about a 10-year old child here, after all. And yes, she kicked the officer in the groin, and that’s when he Tasered her. But in case you’re thinking about all the huge, adult-like 10 year-olds that you might have met in your lifetime, according to The Smoking Gun, the little girl is “about 65 pounds and 4′ 6.” No word on the weight and height of Officer Barney Fife Dustin Bradshaw, but it does not sound to me that his life was in danger.
Can anyone explain to me why this is not getting more news coverage?
