Officer Fired After Using Taser On Girl, 10

GOOD. When are they going to take these tasers away from these police officers? Children, old people, disabled--they kill people regularly--if they don't have any common sense why are they even police? Read this from wftv.com, Orlando:

Camera Was Not Attached To Device (of course, just like the Malibu Sheriff's office had no camera's set up at the station when Mitrice Richardson disappeared)

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The police officer in a small Arkansas town who used a stun gun on an unruly 10-year-old girl has been fired for violating department policy -- not for using the Taser itself but for failing to use the camera attached to it, according to the town's mayor.

Ozark Mayor Vernon McDaniel said he received notice of Officer Dustin Bradshaw's firing on Monday morning. Bradshaw previously was suspended for seven days with pay. His termination was effective Friday.

"The policy that Officer Bradshaw failed to obey is failure to have his camera placed on his Taser," police Chief Jim Noggle wrote in a memo to McDaniel. "It is the officer's duty to insure all of his equipment is present and in working order."

Complete cop-out. This way, old Bradshaw can still get a job in law enforcement. What a crock.

...Police were called to the home Nov. 11 after the girl's mother couldn't get her to take a shower. "Her mother told me to tase her if I needed to," Bradshaw wrote.

Wha??? Talk about poor parenting skills...
