More on the 14-year-old girl tasered into the skull [LINK].
This is an example of how perfectly safe (sic) tasers can be. "...a Taser dart penetrated the girl's skull causing a wound that took 18 staples and six stitches to close." [LINK]
Police dash cam video [VIDEO] (<- follow link for video)
Notice how the video prevented (?) this outrageous example of taser abuse from occurring. Oh, no, I guess it didn't...
Hatcher said. "She was running from police across traffic without looking." [LINK]
Look at the girl running "across traffic without looking". [ibid]
1) What traffic? Do you see any traffic? There's no traffic visible (although perhaps there is some just out of view, but why not let the video roll to show us...?). I doubt it. Small town, probably no traffic.
2) The girl had every opportunity to examine the street in both directions. She was already walking one way and could undoubtedly see that the street was empty in that direction. Then she turned and ran the other way with a clear view of the opposite direction. So the story that the girl had, or was about to, run across traffic without looking is revealed to be (probably) completely untrue. Typical ill-conceived spin...
3) And, from the available video, it appears she was already pretty much (at the least) clear across the street before brave and dedicated Chief Roger not-a-rabbit Hatcher took her down, hard. So the dangerous (?) crossing of the street was over when he fired the oh-so-safe (sic) taser.
"...across traffic without looking...", my ass.
This incident is a clear cut case of the overuse of the taser. The piss-poor taser training (a.k.a. propaganda) led to this very very dangerous encounter.
And some taser-morons still parrot the old taser lie that tasers replace guns. They could watch this video a hundred times, and then still parrot the same old lie.
