16 Year Old Girl Tasered while driving with 74-Year-old

OK, I'm not sure if the victim of the tasing is black or not, but this was truly wrong. What happen to common sense policing? how about calling a relative to come get the 72 year old, and the car, and give the 72 year old a ticket. No that would be too easy.

Get this folks, as reported by chicago breaking news.com a 16-year-old Aurora girl was Tasered Monday by a police officer during a traffic stop after she interfered with an arrest, police said. The teen and the officer who used the Taser were treated for cuts and scrapes to their faces. Why are so many people in the Chicago area getting tased?

Remember the tasing death of the man for drinking a beer

What We Think About Taser Abuse

The teen was taken to the Kane County Youth Home after being charged with aggravated battery to a police officer and resisting arrest in connection with the incident that happened about 4:15 p.m. near McCoy Drive and Kautz Road.

The girl was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a 74-year-old relative that was pulled over by police for speeding. The driver was in the process of being arrested for attempting to obstruct justice and not having a valid license when the teen allegedly left the vehicle and physically interfered with the arrest, police said.

The arresting officer Tasered the girl allegedly after she got into a physical altercation with him.
The situation was brought under control after backup officers were called to the scene, police said. The driver was charged with resisting arrest and speeding. Police are not releasing the driver's name in order to protect the identity of the juvenile. More HERE

We are not against taser use as an alternative to deadly force. We are however against taser abuse by police who would use of a taser on the young, elderly, pregnant or physically frail; people offering passive, rather than active resistance; and restrained prisoners.
