12-Year-Old Girl Tased by Police at Victoria’s Secret

In St. Louis, a 12-year-old girl, Dejamon Baker, was at a Victoria’s Secret with her mother, Charlene Bratton, when police arrived with warrants for Bratton’s arrest. Baker apparently got physically involved when her mother was tackled to the floor, and she was tased twice. The original reason for the arrest: unpaid parking tickets.

There are many who will immediately pick up on this story for its sensational character, and, as is often the case, no one will really have all the facts. But at first blush, this report is disturbing. On a few levels.

First, the police were tackling an unarmed civilian in a retail store for little more than asking for a reason why she was being arrested.

Second, police tased a twelve-year-old girl… at least twice. Maybe this girl was a genetic anomaly or something, but I hardly think the whole “I-was-in-fear-for-my-life” routine’s gonna fly in this situation. Do you even need to know the circumstances? I hardly think any encounter with unarmed assailants can justify this amount of force. But using such force with a 12-year-old girl? What’s worse, the police spokesman trying to avoid a public relations crisis said he thought the officer’s actions were “justified.” Really?

If this were an isolated event, I could chalk it up to nerves or inexperience or just plain stupidity. But it’s not. Unfortunately, these kinds of stories are happening every day. But we shouldn’t just get angry with the offending police officers (who, incidentally, are giving a bad name to the more cool-headed of their colleagues who are still committed to doing their job in a reasonable fashion). Police officers are allowed to behave this way, even if they choose not to. In fact, in many cases, they are encouraged to act this way. Many of the laws they are required to uphold are ridiculous. Their position is becoming less and less respectable as the laws they are required to enforce become more burdensome. My generation has less respect for police officers than the one before us by far. And the one after us? Well, they don’t even respect police enough to keep a safe distance when their mom’s getting arrested. Should the police have been arresting a woman for unpaid parking tickets? No. Are they required to by law? Yes. Is it their fault? Not really.

And I’m sure lots of people out there think these police officers and the legislators that give them license to bully the public are “justified.” Because a lot of people think we’re still living in Mayberry, and they still trust the civil government and its enforcers to do right by us. But this trust is becoming less and less warranted as time goes by. We need to stick up for our rights and the rights of others now. We shouldn’t be required to have any but voluntary dealings with police officers unless we have done damage to someone else’s life or property. Period. After all, I thought their motto was “Protect and Serve” not “Collect and Unnerve.”

      • They conveniently wait until a crime is over before responding and then arrest or shoot the victims. It’s easier.

          • what do you think your talking to a bunch of commiecrats here ..look private strapon 2 WE DONT NEED NO STINKIN COPS besides my guns bigger than theirs and so ain’t my weapons

          • HEY IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR LAST SENTENCE ?????????? AND SO AIN’T MY WEAPONS. YEP, YOU GRADUATED FROM THE GOVERNMENT PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.

            GET OF THE CRACK PIPE.

          • HEY fool—-I don’t NEED the FVCKING COPS—MY GLOCK.40 will DO just fine—YOU wait for the cops to show I sure as HELL won’t!

          • More than likely you were FORCED out for total ignorance; DOUBT that you were ever “airborne” except when a Sgt kicked your butt when you were policing up cigarette butts.

          • As they have been saying, the police ALWAYS are too late to prevent any of the crimes you mentioned. I have always respected the police, but in this day, many are not doing good jobs. And like the story above states, they are made to do things that are Wrong!

          • It ain’t the cops, its the COURT SYSTEM. The criminals have more rights than the victims. They get a slap on the wrist, a new place to live with money when they get out in a few months. Then new victims start appearing. It takes one criminal to create multiple victims. If more victims starting taking matters into their own hands and stop thinking the police are threr to prevent crime, then thier would be a lot less victims, and less criminals as well. Better to be judged by 12 then carried by 6.

          • If I lived where these people are I’d move and if you know their numbers you are in the loop with them and they don’t want a cop 4 shore. Airborne retired???From what ?? Selling girlscout cookies?

          • SARG???

            You might want to accept this advice.

          • Sarge? You’re not helping.

            I’m not ‘good enough’ at on-line stuff to figure out if you really want to help rather than exacerbate the problem for ‘other’ reasons.

            But, I’m thinking that you have to KNOW “you’re not helping”…

            Don’t you?

          • WELL YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT NOT GOOD ENOUGH. I WRITE WHAT I WANT AND HOW I WANT TO WRITE IT. DON’T LIKE IT, THEN DON’T READ IT.

      • I think all of the examples you used are typical of the “when seconds count, the police are only minutes (or more) away” category.

      • sorry but some of the cops are the problem in many cases, I have had problems with cops that should have been reported but since my family has many members being cops, I let it side however when something is truely wrong n they needs to be addressed. for example my late gf ex hubby was stalking us when we went places and even threatened both of us. Is that right

          • I prefer to rely on my friends Sam, Bill, John….. Colt, Ruger, Browning, those are…… they are right at my side, always ready to give aid when called upon, never late, don’t eat a thing until actually put to work, and make NO noise until called into action. Nor do they ever turn on me when I am the one attacked.

          • Dude, really lol u need to chill out before u giv ur old geriatric senile butt a stroke. Its true that not all cops are bad & I have known a few on both sides of those tracks, but cops who do theses sorts of things have no business with the authority they possess because they are not intereseted in protecting or serving the public, that type are arrogant, power hungry, over-inflated a$$holes that belong in straightjackets rather than in a cop uniform, they are in effect, impersonating real police officers who actually giv a damn. I’m more than happy to call cops if somebody tryin to start somethin or break n my house, etc… but if the bastards want some now, I got it n 2 flavors, 2ga or 9mil

          • Why I have my CCW and my 9mm and they are much quicker to defend me than the cops . I probably out ranked you in the Army, I was an E-4 and EARNED it by being an outstanding soldier unlike you and your E-2 rating.

          • What happened to you to make you so hateful???? Who shat in your cereal for breakfast??? This is seriously depressing, on this entire page you’ve had NOTHING good to say, and a bunch of insults. None of those insults were productive, well, unless your goal was to show yourself as an uneducated hick…which isn’t very productive if you ask me. The insults you used against us and the insults against the blacks were uncalled for. All I can do, is hope that you are just trying to get a laugh out of angering people…which is sick if this is your goal…Middle and High School are over, and it is time to grow up!

          • I do believe the police were wrong in that particular parking-ticket situation; however, here in my town, I had a police officer come straight away when I phoned because I thought something was very wrong at a neighbor’s. Their dogs were always indoors every night, but this night they weren’t and barked nonstop. They were afraid and hungry! That officer helped me make sure the dogs were all right, had food and water. Turns out the family had a road emergency enroute home and didn’t make it back ’til next morning. The officer was absolutely helpful, and the dogs quieted down.
            As in every group, there are some who give a bad name to the whole group. We seem incapable of speaking only of the particular bad ones in a situation and, instead, dump them all into the same barrel with those who are the rotten apples.
            I’m sorry you have become so angry, but it certainly is understandable. You indicated you’re Airborne retired. Thank you for your service to our country.

          • A supreme display of trollish ignorance; Note the use of CAPS which certainly dosplays a tremendous lack of intelligence. It “thinks” that Caps gives it more power and meaning, just like its screen name od 1Sarget02″ which is undoubtedly a falsely claimed rank and honor.
            Go play with dropping your soap in the shower “sarge”.

      • Come on, no one I know hates police but christ look at all the stupid shit they pull and get away with it. Law enforcement officers are not above the law.The cops should have shot and killed the Colorado shooter, they could have and should have but didnt. no need to call names.

        • MY COMMENT STILL STANDS: DON’T LIKE THE POLICE THEN CALL YOUR LOCAL N I G G E R CRACK WHORE OR HOUSE. PERIOD.

          • To 1Sargento2…You are pathetic. If you cannot express yourself without using such vile words, you shouldn’t even be commenting. If you claim to be a conservative, your display of horrid language gives us a bad name!

          • Sarge is not a conservative. He is either totally crazy or a liberal!! Oh, wait. There is no difference, therefore, he is a liberal.

          • SOMETIMES I ACT NORMAL WHEN THAT STARTS TO BORE ME THEN I GO BACK TO BEING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!! hear me not you b.hussein jock strap sniffer

          • I FORGET WHAT CEMETERY WHERE SHE IS BURIED. I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT. STILL INTERESTED????????????????????

      • since the one group are about as helpful as the other, why call either one? Simply make good use of the “force multiplier” all good citizens carry about with them everywhere we go. Problem solved, and a strong “love letter” sent to their cronies……

        • I think Sarge was gay and back when he was “of age” they didn’t allow gays in the military, so I doubt if he was ever in.

      • Sarge obviously you took one to many blows to the head in boot camp, most of us here wouldn’t call the cops till AFTER we subdued the perps … every cop in my town knows if i call them its to send an ambulance or the coroner

      • Which is AN EXCELLENT reason to have a CCW permit and a 45 or 9MM at your side and KNOW how to use it in an emergency. It’s THERE and the cops ARE minutes by 911 if you get the chance and time to call. All the cops are required to do according to the liberal courts is show up and draw a chalk outline around your body.

      • @1Srgento2 This is sad. I’ve seen you make some very smart observations on other issues and sites, but this is by far the most idiotic thing I’ve ever seen from you! I hate to say it, but the police force has turned into nothing more than fund raisers(click it or ticket!). I am saddened by this, as I’m seeing pregnant women, children, and unarmed civilians caught in this crossfire over and over again. The police used to protect and serve, but that has stopped since the eighties at least. I’ve watched it get worse and worse. I remember being a child fearful of the police(and I’m the good girl that does NOTHING wrong! I’ve never been to jail, never committed crimes, heck I refuse to jaywalk!), but I was afraid of the police! Why do you think that is? Why would a child be afraid of a police officer…maybe because they can sense evil??? I’m not saying all members of the police forces are bad or just after power or money. I know there are a few of them out there who want to protect and serve the citizens and not themselves, but the few looses out to the majority. If a police officer goes on strike because the people don’t like his actions, it goes to show that he was never that good to begin with. He was never out there to protect any how. He was probably the same fool who rides on your butt in traffic, trying to goad you in to making a mistake out of fear!

      • Should any of the list of events happen to you, we would like to hear all about the response you had from your local police, including the time to get there, the instant arrest of said assailants, and IF you’re still alive, if you would do it again after you get out of the hospital. Under 0bamacare, especially.

      • We have plenty of good police offficers around the country. There are as always a few in any organization who give the rest a bad name. As for the car jacking etc. thats why I carry a gun in my car, one in my truck and have one at home as well. I am licensed to carry concealed and not one bit afraid to give someone a good case of lead poision shoud the need arise..
        The police no matter how good are only minutes away when seconds count!!!

        • Average response time is 22 min., unless you get lucky and they are at your local donut shop around the corner. Even then they might not want to interrupt their snack.

      • you sound like som ass from the jumping junkies 82nd. You would probaly fire on american children if the officer said so. Ret Army MSG Special Forces Airborne

      • It’s called CCP. Conceled Carry Permit. We carry to protect ourselves and our famlies. We don’t depend on anyone else to protect us but ourselves.

      • Only call the police as a last resort – they’ll only cause more trouble.
        @ 1Sarge – I thing your a liberal troll – just here to cause trouble. Why don’t you go back to where ever the hell you came from. You never have anything constructive to say – just rants and attacks on EVERYBODY’s posts. I think you’re full of crap. Your past only buys you so much, and I think you’ve blown your wad. Go ahead, call me some names. I can’t wait to hear what your creative mind will think up.

      • Or you can call a cop & see if they bother to show up or watch them defend the thugs because they are bl ack, hispanic, mu slim or leftists that support their unions.
        They were such a great help when Christians were being brutally attacked by mu slims or when a few brave light skinned LEGAL Americans counter protested an ILLEGAL Mexican march & were attacked by ILLEGAL hispanics & when gays were spitting on & hitting 14 to 16 yo youth group kids with rocks & bottles for PEACEFULLY protesting, by PRAYING & SINGING, at a gay pride parade.
        YOU, are the MORON!! Pull your head out of your — & GROW UP!! This is the REAL WORLD!

      • Airborne?
        I doubt it.
        Retired?
        With prejudice,no doubt.

        The police will help you in none of the instances cited – they will, however, fill out a report, search you and your home, arrest you for anything they find that they don’t like – like a weapon or prescription drugs.

      • Hey Mrs Airborne, Retired MORON. You won’t be singing the praises of the dirty cops when they are holding you to the ground and threatening your life. No one said all cops are bad but far to many are just plain corrupt. There is no reason in the world that a cop should be tazing a 12 year old girl. Unless of course he’s some panzi-assed pedophile army paratrooper. I knew some airborne soldiers once. They were some lazy assed morons that had comic books for their M-16 maintenance manuals. One thing I always found amazing was that the US Marines required higher test scores than the Army. But I guess when you have to print comic books just to remind someone how to clean a weapon you can’t expect a whole lot from him. USMC Ret.

      • I think I much prefer to protect my own home. Thankyou. At least I know that all my personal stuff will still be there after I shoot the burglar. I don’t need the police to ransack every draw and every room in my house under the pretext of checking out what the burglar might have taken. So they helped themselves.

      • This isn’t the point. You can’t just ignore these attacks and let them go or it will get worse. I think most Americans support decent, law abiding police men.

      • Nope I’ll take care of the problem with my little friend “32 Special” and then call the police to clean up the mess.

  1. The Oakland Police Department shoots a Marine veteran

    • Raymond, I think that 98% of the police officers make the others look bad. Remember our local Police Chief of a few years ago, David Brame, killed his wife, Christal, during a messy divorce and then shot himself. This Police chief should have never been allowed to rise to such a high office with sucha a horrible track record diring his years as an officer. Local politicians glossed over all the infractions and “sheepdipped” him for certain “favors”.

  3. A Highland Heights, Kentucky former police chief has been accused of wire fraud
    after using credit cards in the name of the Highland Heights Southgate Police
    Authority and in the names of other members of his police department to steal over $115,000.

    • Raymond; I agree we have some bad cops and need them removed from the honorable position of police. But I will STAND with the overwhelming majority of these men and women who put their lives on the line everyday… the ones who do this thankless job because they still believe in our great country. Think of how the entitlement mentality has changed how the normal day-in-the-life of a cop has changed. Think how the level of brutality towards other humans has denigrated in the last 20 years. I WILL STAND with our police… and pray that we can change the direction of our great country.

    • There are bad cops, just as there are bad Marine, Army, Navy, and Air Force personnel. The average is about the same. 2.5% should not carry a badge. Unfortunately, most bad cops are discovered until crimes are committed. Armed forces have court marshal for there trouble makers, bad cops get arrested. Just like criminals breaking the law, the bad cops are caught after the fact. Anyone thinking they can get them before they break the law is just foolish. You really want things to be like the novel “Big Brother”? It’s a damn shame they exist, but we should realize for the one caught, many others are out there doing there jobs, and some of those investigated, arrested, and charged the bad cops too.

  9. Baltimore, Maryland law enforcement charged a man with “conspiracy to commit murder” for using his cell phone to film drunks in a late night brawl. University of Baltimore law professor,Byron Warnkin, says it’s technically not a crime to hit record, even if you catch someone breaking the law.

  10. this reporter is an idiot… this woman fought the police. “I don’t have to do nothing the police says’ is this womans attitude. Good Americans will polity engage a police officer but not this family. The kid attacks police officers… I say taz her again. Yea, there are a few bad cops but the vast majority of them are amazing Americans who are doing their best for US. This reporter intentionally misrepresented the facts of this case… I’m sure they are a liberal plant as well.

      • how about the truth!! This story is so far from the truth it’s sickening. I’ll stick to my original post… taz her AGAIN!!!

          • ronnie; if you knew anything about this case or who the mother and daughter really are you would change your post immediately. But truth and intelligence is clearly not your strong suit or choice.

    • I also read that she is 15 and was getting involved in the arrest of her mother re: drug and traffic issues…I don’t care for the police but I want all the real facts before finding them guilty. The press sensationalized stories ie., Zimmerman to incite passion.

    • Right ON, when you are addressed by the Police it is your responsibility to act properly if you attack or become aggressive in anyway they must control the sitituation and this young girl needs to learn that you can’t attack an Officer of the Law.

    • Geezer, maybe it will be your kid or grand child next time and we will be able to hear you squealing like a little Pig! I t was over parking tickets YOU IDIOT! You,cops or any other A*S H*LES tackle my mother you can bet it will be god help them! You are probably one of those that if someone attacked your mother and raped and robbed her you would run and hide!

      • hey ronnie… my kids and myself have the integrity and pride to politely engage with the police. I’ve taught my kids how to act… and not be heathens like this mother and daughter. ronnie, you don’t know what you’re talking about… these people attacked the police… the police acted appropriately. And just to be certain… someone attacks my family I would call the police… right AFTER the coroner.

      • You have no clue. Stop reading only what bloggers say, and actually research something, or is it easier for you to simply come on line, make a few childish remarks, and fell better about your own pathetic existence? You are the true coward, and have obviously have a criminal record. Oh, let me guess, you didn’t really do it, and was railroaded by bad cops. Sorry, my mistake.

  11. What has happened to America? if the 12 year old had been a Muslim burka babe the police wouldn’t have tased her, because they would be in jail for it and the police chief fired. but because they are most likely regular Amerians they get tased. Since when are parking tickets a crime? Has bratton had a trial yet, or is she just assumed guilty, and convicted of a thought crime without a trial?

  12. “We shouldn’t be required to have any but voluntary dealings with police officers unless we have done damage to someone else’s life or property. Period.”
    So, do you advocate allowing a drunk driver to continue to drive until he either kills someone or does damage? I agree this looks like overkill, but like you say, no one has all the facts yet. What if the 12 yr old was physically abusing the cops? What is the mother is belligerent and attempting to leave during the arrest? Get all the facts, then make your decision. That’s the problem with the media today, get half the facts, and blow it out of proportion.

    • I believe law enforcement should be punitive, not regulative. If you executed drunk drivers who killed innocent people, there would be fewer drunk drivers by far. Giving out D.U.I.s does nothing to prevent harm to the innocent. This is a statistical fact. It just makes money for the state, and harms many perfectly innocent and capable drivers who might be over the arbitrary legal limit. What if the mother was trying to leave during the arrest? The question is whether she should be arrested for unpaid parking tickets. I think not. Parking tickets in themselves are irrational. Why am I paying the civil government? For what damages?

      • I agree with the punitive aspect, but should the police wait until the drunk kills someone before they are allowed to arrest them? Not saying I agree with the parking tickets either, but since they are on the books, should everyone disregard them? I lived overseas where people disregarded all traffic laws. Seen cars parked across all lanes of traffic so they wouldn’t have to walk more than a block to their destination, and stop lights were for tourists and the “other people”. I don’t think the US is ready for that type of gridlock.

  13. this type of action from police ,really piss me off, sounds like TSA !! These officers need a good swift kick in the ass and suspended from the force permanently!!!!!!Friggin morons!!

    • So much kneejerk reaction to liberal reporting that only gives you a small part of the story, because the liberal media wants a bigger story they want to get someone cranked up to do something stupid so they will have an even bigger story to report and blame the police with something else, they are all about creating news, to sell themselves( IDIOTS)

  14. I got in a fight with a “disabled” ex-cop who didn’t have a prayer during the whole situation of whipping me although he did have a baseball bat. Cops showed up in FULL SWAT regalia (AR-15s, Shotguns, you name it) and when I refused to press charges I got charged with disorderly conduct for fighting when I didn’t even start it and HE STILL HAD THE BASEBALL BAT IN HIS HANDS.
    Anyway, the charge was eventually dismissed at the District Magistrate level and I got a lecture from the Judge about being too old to be getting into fights.

  15. WORTH POSTING AGAIN:
    THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T LIKE THE POLICE, WELL!! THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE BEING CAR JACKED, STRONG ARMED ROBBED, HOME INVASION, RAPED ETC ETC. CALL A CRACK HOUSE OR A N I G G E R CRACK
    W H O R E AND SEE HOW MUCH HELP YOU GET. YOU MORONS. AIRBORNE, RET

    • The citizenry needs to stand up and FIGHT back at these apes. They are not worthy of the uniform, much less the badge. A few dead “officers” will send a clear message.

      • MY COMMENT STILL STANDS. HEY MAGGOT!!!!!!!!!! NOW!!! GO BACK TO YOUR P O R N, WINFREY, WHOOPIE, SPRINGER, POVICH, THE VIEW AND THE REST OF THAT ILK. THIS SITE IS FOR BIG PEOPLE WITH INTELLIGENCE WHICH YOU LACK.. YOU MUST BE USING B.HUSSIEN’ FILTHY JOCK-STRAP AS YOUR PACIFIER. ARE YOU WEARING YOUR OBAMA TEE SHIRT??????

    • @AIRBORNE, All caps are crap!…after you’ve been raped carjacked mugged were house invaded it is too late. Last time I needed a cop, none to be found. However on way to hospital aqnd passing a DUNKIN DONUTS there were three cruisers there with cops sitting at tables. Oh yeah, cops are big help to each other, not to thee or me.

      • YOU ARE FULL OF S H I T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HEY MAGGOT!!!!!!!!!! NOW!!! GO BACK TO YOUR P O R N, WINFREY, WHOOPIE, SPRINGER, POVICH, THE VIEW AND THE REST OF THAT ILK.

      • THANK YOU VERY MUCH BEST COMPLIMENT I HAVE HAD ALL DAY. YOU CALL ME A FOOL????????? AND DON’T YOU EVER FORGET.. SOME TIME I ACT NORMAL BUT, IT GETS BORING SO I JUST GO BACK TO BEING ME…………………. AIRBORNE!!!!!!!!!!!

    • We will see how much yor opinion changes when a cop pulls over your wife and beats the hell out of her for the crime of disagreeing. You are the moron who seems to think that pinning on a badge gives you the right to abuse citizens. USMC MP, ret

  16. Was this little girl brandishing a bra at the policemen? Was she threatening to unleash a negligee at him? Maybe he was in fear for his life because she throwing deadly panties at him. Good grief. Does the police’s intense training not include how to arrest a woman without doing physical harm to her or to her daughter? This is outrageous.

    • Obviously you know nothing about the realities of law enforcment today, and the people that do the crimes that have no respect for you or the police!!

      • Actually I have a working knowledge of law enforcement today. This woman’s “crime” was unpaid parking tickets. Wow, I’m sure the world is a safer place today since this “ruthless criminal” and her “unruly daughter” have been tased.

        • AND she/they attacked the police… barbara you clearly know nothing about this case… the mother may not be a ruthless criminal but she is a POS criminal. This has little to nothing to do with parking tickets… the mother made that decision.

          • I understood that the police were called initially by the store employees becaause they recognized this “group” as having participated in shop lifting in the past. The girl was “15”, not “12”.

  17. If I were 50 years old and that was my mother, I would have been just as determined that someone was attacking her and jumped into the heap. I feel a huge law suit coming on against the involved policemen and rightly so! If law enforcement has dipped this low to catch their parking offenders, this world is nuttier than I imagined.

    • then you should be tazed as well. You’re clueless to the facts of this case. This is another example of certain people in our country who openly defy all police and lawfulness. They believe they don’t have to follow the law. They do what they want and no cop or law applies to me. I’m sick of these people who want and take everything and have no respect or civility to our society… taz em again!!!

      • Excuse me TheBigGeezer! If that was your mother getting flopped to the floor for what you thought was without giving good reason and you were standing next to her, what would you do? I respect the law as much as anyone but from the way the article reads, this public behavior was for “traffic tickets?” Maybe I jumped at conclusions and there could be more to the story than what we read…I don’t know. It would seem that a person who didn’t pay their parking tickets would be approached at their home and either removed or given a summons to appear in court.?? I know that after a summons and person does not appear, the police can remove one from their home and taken to jail. But, usually not done in a public store? And, wouldn’t one tazer been enough to bring a 12 year old child down..unless the first tazer missed. And, no I wouldn’t want to be victim of tazer. I’ve heard it hurts like… I certainly wouldn’t want to be an honest policeman or patrolman (ladies, as well). Their jobs are very difficult at times and they face a lot of danger each day they are on the job. That is why I do respect the laws of our State and Country. This particular story as stated is simply too bazar for parking tickets.

  18. I agree with the writer for the most part. I got out of law enforcement due to similar situations. Law enforcement officers are put in a bad spot. You do the job or someone else will in this economy. Morality is just about gone. I will always pay full respect to the officers out enforcing the sometimes stupid laws. But people need to realize there aren’t Mayberry civilians out there either. They get nasty and don’t stop. God be with all of officers faced with the choice, to tase, fight, wrestle, shoot, kill, for duty, law,& to support their families.

  19. First off the whole racket about parking tickets is unconstitutional. “ANY ACT OF COMMON LAW RESULTING IS A FINE OF $20 OR MORE ENTITLES YOU TO A TRIAL BY JURY”. When is the last time you saw a parking ticket or traffic ticket for UNDER $20 ??? We are already overtaxed which pays for the streets, the police and their vehicles. So they need to fine us for parking on OUR streets as well? Why is that even the business of the police? To raise revenue for the city, that’s why!

    But this pussy cop, that is the reason we have the right to keep and bear arms. So when some coward cop decided to assault a girl an honest citizen can stop him. Either by banishing his gun or if need be, to shot him. That’s why our founding Fathers proved and declared for us to have the UNALIENABLE RIGHT, GOD GIVEN RIGHT, to Keep and Bear Arms. NOT to hunt or target practice. Not to defend ourselves or to stop invasion.
    BUT to be able to stop any part of the government who steps over the line. When that so called police officer stepped over the line he STOPPED being a cop and became a common thug. Just like the thugs who burned children alive at Waco or the thugs who Sodomized a suspect with a broom handle in New York or the slob cop in Wichita who beat a woman in a comma for failure to comply.

    • you are an ididot… you don’t know anything about this case… but nice spew… it was the police that were attacked!!

    • Huh? What a twisted little manifesto. Go ahead, draw down on a cop you think is wrong. Tell me how that works for you. If you live, see what the judge thinks too.

  20. my question would have to be “why were the police called? was there some other reason than the parking tickets(shop lifting)? How did they know where she was etc.” Seems there may be more to the story than reported here. I have never heard of police going into a place of business to aresst someone for just parking tickets. For that matter how many unpaid tickets and for how long? Get the facts before making rash judgements.

  21. With all the cell phone cameras out there, every time the police do this stuff, they are going to be recorded and SUED and eventually lose…it sucks to be hurt by them- but these two women will be getting a nice payday in a few years!

    • they won’t get a dime… unless sharpton and jessie do get involved… but then again there’s the justice you’re looking for?? Would you like some facts… THEY attacked the police… taz em again.

  22. As the author says, this story is disturbing at several levels, including one not mentioned in the article. It does appear (and, granted, not all of the facts are reported here) that we do have yet another case of SWAT mentality police over-reaction rather than a peace officer approach to the situation. Beyond that, is anybody else bothered by the fact that the mother, an obvious scofflaw, is shopping for clothes with/for a 12 year old at Victoria’s secret.

    • No doubt. For the sake of brevity, I removed some other points from my article. That was one of them. Another was that they don’t have the same last name. Another broken family unfortunately.

  23. How about paying your parking tickets or not being stupid enough to get one in the first place. As usual, lib spin on something that is a mute point. What should the officer have done, restrained her physically? That also would have been wrong. She learned a valuable lesson, either respect the law or suffer the consequences. Maybe her lowlife amoeba of a parent should have taught her that or maybe the schools. Oh, that’s right, everyone is a winner that does not have to work and can sponge off of others that do. Shanequa will hopefully be a better person now because of it.

    • thank you for your reality post… I’m at a loss for words for the ignorant posts that are here…. a lawless POS attacks police… her thug kid jumps in and the police are supposed to look the other way??? I say… taz her again!!!

    • It’s moot. Not mute. And the only lesson she learned is that authorities are not to be trusted or respected. Whether the lesson was right or wrong, authorities need to be acting in a reasonable manner.

      • She learned punishment for bad behavior, which is something her mother must have forgot to teach her. I have 3 kids, and not one would disrespect the directions of an officer, even if they thought what they saw was wrong. If they think the cop was wrong, they know the proper channels to go thru. But then, I raised my kids to know right from wrong, and that there are losers in this world, and everyone is not a winner in life. Sorry, I’m must be a 1%er.

        • hey Mr Clean Ohio… thank you for taking the time and effort to instill pride and courtesy for your children. I bet you are proud of who they are and what they will do for our great country. And teaching them what to do if they see something is wrong… you still stand with integrity and courtesy but voice the concern… will get you positive results. And if you’re a ‘1%er’ for this… there’s about 95% of great Americans who stand with you… and for the liberal-loon plants on this site… I know the math doesn’t quite add up.

        • If your kids were witnessing police brutality or a flagrant act of tyranny, you would want them to wait idly by and follow the instructions they were given? How is that teaching them right from wrong? What about the people who founded this country? Should they have followed the directions of their “rightful” authorities or did they have the right to hold their superiors to a higher law? Your argument is based on an arbitrary boundary line of ethics. The police are worthy of respect when they act respectably. When they tyrannize the people, they have forfeited the right to obedience. After all, they work for us. We don’t work for them.

          • Go ahead and jump in next time you witness abuses you see. We’ll be reading about you next time. But then you never will. You can talk it, but can you walk it. As for my gun opinions, I own 5 hand guns, 7 rifles, and 8 shotguns. I believe in protecting my own, have my concealed license, and think our government is too big. I would never wrecklessly advice my children to jump a cop. You obviously don’t believe your own BS, or you would have already been in the system. As for what my kids do, they know to film, and be expert witnesses. Call me crazy, but you can get more done by observing the law than by taking it into your own hands, I.e. breaking the law.

          • I *have* been in the system. It was actually for trying to teach my children right from wrong. But that’s another story. I would not advise my children to jump a cop either. I want my children to be shrewd, however. I don’t want them blindly following instructions from just anyone in a police uniform. And I think most people don’t understand the state we’re already in. It hasn’t happened to you yet. But it’ll be too late to do anything about it when it does happen to you. It’s best to stick up for the rights of others than to wait until your rights are abused and you find yourself with no one to stick up for you. Remember what happened in Nazi Germany?

            First they came for the communists,
            and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.Then they came for the trade unionists,
            and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.Then they came for the Jews,
            and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.Then they came for me
            and there was no one left to speak out for me.

      • Are the details of exactly what happened known or been reported. Have you interviewed eyewitnesses? On the surface this looks very bad and I can understand your opinion piece. On the other hand, the devil is in the details and unless I have missed something, those have not been reported or released.
        I think a followup piece would be interesting once you find out all of the sordid details.

  24. THESE SO CALLED PROTECTORS OF THEW PEOPLE ARE SUPPOSE TO TAKE AN EVALUATION TEST BEFORE BEING HIRED > MAYBE THAT IS NOT HAPPENING / TOO MANY SICKO’S ~~~ NOW WEARING THE UNIFORM > DISMISS DISMISS DISMISS THEM ~~ DEPORT TO ANOTHER COUNTRY LIKE ~~ MEXICO THEY SHOULD FEEL RIGHT AT HOME THEIR SINCE . THEY NEVER JAIL . OR EVEN STOP THESE ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL MEXICANS . THE ARE SAFER SCREWING WITH EVERYDAY AMERICANS WHO ARE HELPLESS > SINCE ALL the Police Stick Together . they will not rat out an UN WANTED > BUNCH OF SORRY PXX S

  25. The missing part of this story, was this 12 year old girl 6′ tall and weighing in about 220? Yes, there are 12 year olds like that.

  26. Now lets see a drunk beligerant black guy getts a pass, a new subsadised place to live , and a citizenship because he is related to Obama , meanwhile a 12 year old girl who is trying to help her mother who is being tackeled to the ground by police for parking tickets and is tazered twice !! Does anyone not connected with this communist administration in Washington ???? Is Obama going on TV saying how this littlew girl would look like his daughter if she was black !!! The world is definatly changing , but this is not the change we are looking for !!

  27. The police in my area are terrifying! I am an insulin-dependent diabetic and was waiting at a table at a McDonalds for my order. Because I had low sugar and told the servers i needed food, they assumed i was high on drugs and called the gestapo. a young officer rushed into the restaurant, straight to my table, said nothing to me, jerked me up with my left arm and twisted it behind my back, breaking my shoulder. Then he shoved me to the entry area of the restaurant, knocked my legs out from under me, and slammed me on the floor on my belly…breaking two ribs demanding to know everything i had consumed that day. I told him fruit, crackers, pnut btr, water, insulin, and asked if i could get up. He said no! He held me down for another five minutes or so then pulled me up and HANDCUFFED me. He took me outside to a paramedic who checked my sugar, since it was low, I was released. The was no crime!! Id ordered a soft pretzel! I am 62 years old and full of hatred for these sorry excuses for human beings. PLEASE everybody speak out, raise hell, these mean people with their power to hurt we innocents have to be stopped! I am afraid to go to town anymore. I hate them. I dont break the law, i dont do anything wrong, but they are out to hurt me because i sued for false arrest. I never thought Id see this in Our country but we are in a police state!

  28. These police were clearly out of control. I have a 12 year old granddaughter and i can totally see her trying to help her mom. The mom was a terrible criminal. Outstanding parking tickets and hiding in a Veronica Secret’s store. I would sue the police dept. if it were my granddaughter being tased, not once but twice. The money isn’t important,it’s treating people like human beings as the police would want their families treated. Shame on them.

  29. Kids today are as deadly as an adults, the cops go out with the mindset, they want to come home to their families, I probably would have done the same if the situation warranted it.

  30. As I said many times it’s hard to tell a difference between cops and criminals,but god help any cop who tasers my child unless my child is attacking them with a weapon, because one thing is sure the cop wont be in court to point at my child and his widow will be spending his insurance money!

  31. As an ex law enforcement officer retired in 1992 I have seen a disturbing trend in law enforcement training. It is most obvious in “swat type team training”. The police have always been considered a quasi-military organization but this ideology has begun to take a wrong turn. In the military soldiers have to be trained to kill. It is a well-known psychological fact that the taking of another human life is a very difficult choice to make. Soldiers are trained to dehumanize the enemy during war. This allows them to subjugate their natural aversion in using deadly force.

    Even in 1992 when I retired I began to notice police training aimed at creating an “us versus them? attitude. Civilians were being dehumanized. The result is an increase in the divide between the public and law enforcement. The police have a very difficult job but they should still subscribe to the motto “to protect and serve”. The trend toward trying to stop citizens from taking videos of the police is the latest demonstration of this elite ideology. A police officer who is trained that he or she is a member of some elite force promotes this type of activity. Recently, First Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that it is not illegal for citizens to videotape police officers when they are on public duty.
    This swat mentality is becoming more prevalent daily. Why is it necessary for a swat type raid against a producer of raw milk when there is no history of violence? Go to http://www.cato.org/raidmap for examples of this increasing and dangerous tactic. Paramilitary swat raids when not absolutely necessary, place both the police and the public in danger.

  32. Our tax supported cop’s are becoming tax collectors… If We
    The People don’t wake up and put a STOP to this with our vote and e-mail, then
    we deserve what we get.

  33. Cops are turning into the same scum bags there supposed to arrest. What the hell is happening to this nation of ours.


  34. We shouldn’t be required to have any but voluntary dealings with police officers unless we have done damage to someone else’s life or property.” Really? What about all of those unpaid parking tickets? Think everyone should get a pass on those, too? After all, not paying parking tickets (and numerous other fines) is not doing “damage to someone else’s life or property”. So if everyone ignors paying parking fines how much of a deterrent to respecting restricted parking areas would that nurture, do you think? You are out of your mind. The law is there for everyone to respect and follow. Not just those laws that one agrees with.Yours is another typical “entitlement” frame of mind. Take personal responsibility for your entire life (even parking tickets), then you won’t be faced with situations such as the one described here. Nor will you line your kids up for possible retaliation. GTFU (grow the f*ck up)

  35. Between our laws, our law makers and our police force, WE THE PEOPLE have created a POLICE STATE. The police are no longer our protectors or friends, that was the fifties.
    They are now public enemy number one. They have become the gangsters we used to fear, complete with a legal right to carry all sorts of military type weapons, military body armor, and a badge which WE THE PEOPLE gave them. We deserve all we get if we allow this to go on.

  36. I think everyone is jumping to too many conclusions, and this blog is written by someone with a chip on their shoulder. Want to know what really happens? Sign up for and do a ride along. You will be scared out of your mind with how crazy people act for the most minor of offences. As for the 12 year old girl being tased, I have a 12 year old daughter who is 5’5″, weighs 148 pounds, and is an avid athlete. She can do some real and serious physical harm. You were not there, the mom most likely resisted arrest, and the child could be as large as any adult, and jumped into the middle of it. Yet you try to play her off with the image of a 5 year old being to simple and innocent, and the cops abused her. Let’s not forget the fact the arrest happened in a retail store, with cameras and witnesses. If they were abusive, then show me the video. If you hate cops, then don’t ever, ever call one for help. To do so would be hippocracy on your part. Yes some cops should never have a badge, but that is just a minority of those who serve and protect. Realistic number? Try around 2.5% are questionable. Research your facts before you open your mouth.

  37. It is hard to form an opinion here. The article doesn’t describe what actually happened with the 12 year old girl or her mother. Maybe the girl had a knife and was coming after the officers. There was a warrant for the arrest for the mother. Why didn’t she just respond to it as any sensible person would and surrender herself without violence? This writer is a dud…tell the bad things and let our imaginations conjure up the rest…Bad reporting…

  38. According to our founding documents, when the federal government turns against we-the-people, we have every right to defend ourselves against such tyranny.
    I have a tremendous respect for police because they put their lives on the line every day.BUT, it seems that the very small number of renegade police is becoming greater and greater in number.
    Just think about this: Yesterday a news report indicated that of thousands of illegals sent to ICE are not free and included in those thousands were those with criminal records of violence, including huge numbers of rapes.
    And now we have our police officers physically attacking a mom and 12-yr-old daughter because the mom hadn’t paid her parking tickets!! PLEASE NOTE, the woman’s tickets were for illegal parking, not hit and run, not speeding, not any moving violence whatsoever.
    AND NOW we have a president who is chomping at the bit to incite his version of “community organizing,” so that he can have his goon squads move in, attack any and all who are at the Repub Convention so that he, BO, can declare marshal law. Plain and simple. That is what this is all about.

  39. “All that government does and provides legitimately is in pursuit of its duty to provide protection for private rights (Wynhammer v. People, 13 NY 378, which duty is a debt owed to its creator, WE THE PEOPLE and the private unenfranchised individual; which debt and duty is never extinquished nor discharged, and is perpetual. No matter what the government/state provides for us in manner of convenience and safety, the unenfranchised individual owes nothing to the government.” Hale v. Henkle, 201 U.S. 43
    Do I believe this family has a lawsuit? Most definitely!

  40. What people need to remember is that there is always two sides to every story. Police are going to arrest someone for unpaid tickets. That sounds rather overblown and wrong, but how many tickets are we talking about and what type of tickets are they. They say their parking tickets okay but are they repeated tickets for parking in restricted areas(fire lanes, emergency parking areas, on main thoroughfares, who knows. I don’t say where). We have no pictures of this 12-year-old girl so there’s no way of knowing whether or not she could’ve been a threat or not. Now I’m not and never have been a girl, but it will years old I was 5’5″ and 190 pounds from growing up working on a farm. I could’ve been perceived as a threat.
    There’s no question that the police in this country are becoming more and more corrupt, belligerent ,, and downright brutal. The bigger question should be why is this happening? I was a deputy sheriff in the 70s and got out of law enforcement . At that time because I could see the corruption taking over. But as to the brutal behavior that goes to the conduct of the people that the officers come in contact with who have absolutely no qualms about killing a cop. No one can pay me enough to be a cop in today’s society .
    In no way, making excuses for the police because there is no excuse for the conduct of many officers . However they are doing a job that no one else wants to do and are under attack hundred percent of the time .

  41. The point is made in this article that civilian attitudes toward police have changed in the past 2-3 decades and this is true. I have seen it and experienced it first hand. There are many reasons but I think the biggest reason is their arrogance, today they think they are better than the people they serve.

  42. Tase MY DAUGHTER and see what happens to you—-I DON”T give a DAMM how many “FVCKING COPS are there—promise my GLOCK.40 will STOP them quick—and if you think I WON’T shoot a FVCKING COP—think again MANY are more corrupt than the buttwipes in DC—WE in the CORPS call many of the “OFFICER FRIENDLIES” John Wayne wannabes—give a PUNK a badge and gun and you have the fixings for trouble—and ANOTHER thing there OFFICER FRENDLY—I won’t HESITATE–the 15 to 60 seconds YOU would—BEEN there and DONE THAT in to many COMBAT areas!
    HOPE that MOM sues the HELL out of ALL concerned!
    Semper FI and watch your 6—the cops won’t!!

    • Gee Rambo, don’t let your alligator mouth get your hummingbird azz in trouble. Talk about a John Wayne wanna-be! A Marine…..snicker…..

  43. Police deal with some of our society’s worst folks daily but that is never a reason to overreact. This goes for citizens too.

    Yet, if the story above transpired as depicted regarding the 12 year old who was tased – WTF? What kind of ‘officer’ can honestly justify this? That person should surrender their badge before they are fired and prosecuted for assault.

  44. It’s St Louis – what else can you expect?? St. Louis is another one of the large, demagogue controlled bastions of the entitlement people. It, along with Chicago, NYC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, LA, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, Boston, Seattle represents the best one can expect from the Demagogue Camp. There are a lot more of these cities but there is just not enough room – besides, we all know who they are – Dearborn, Denver, Houston, Atlanta, Charlotte, to name just a few. This has been going on for years, but the Osama Regime with its totally racist enforcement of our laws has caused a vast escalation of the violence on both sides. Thanks, Barracky!!!

  45. It’s exactly these kinds of articles and comments that are causing this
    disrespect for authority. People think that they can disobey and resist a lawful
    order or arrest because they have been emboldened by articles such as this and
    the media. According to the author, he thinks that repeat “parking” violators
    shouldn’t be arrested for not paying the fines. So what would he suggest? Just
    ignore these scofflaws and let them accumulate ticket after ticket and thumb
    their nose at the law? I’m sure the officer didn’t just “tackle an unarmed
    civilian” in the store because she questioned them. Nor did they wake up in the
    morning and decide that they were going to go out and taser a 12 year old “just
    for fun”. Let’s get the full story instead of the short version given here. I’m
    sure the “innocent civilian” was just a model citizen and had no idea why the
    mean old police were bothering her. Riiight! And as far as “tasering” the 12
    year old, what would he suggest the officer do, beat her with a nightstick? Or
    maybe a good punch in the face would stop her from ATTACKING the police officer.
    Maybe she should have been sprayed in the face with pepper spray? In any of
    these scenarios the author would have still complained about the big, burly cop
    assaulting an innocent 12 year old who was just helping her poor mother resist a
    WARRANTED arrest. See the word warranted in caps? That’s right, a judge issued a
    warrant to arrest the mother for unanswered TRAFFIC violations, not “parking
    tickets” as the author would have you believe. And, according to the news report
    in the link that accompanies this article, there was only one officer involved.
    So let me get this right. The author suggests that the officer allow him/herself
    to be assaulted by a person while he/she is struggling with another person while
    trying to place that person under a LAWFUL arrest as per a warrant issued by a
    JUDGE! After reading this I had to check to see what website I was on. I though
    that maybe I had been directed to the Huffington Post or some other
    Liberal/Progressive site promoting anarchy and class warfare!

    An unarmed
    citizenry does not only tend to result in being ruled by tyranny, but rather it
    requires tyranny in order to keep society from anarchy. It is incumbent upon
    every generation in every society to choose which they prefer!

  46. Wooo uh, mercy, mercy me,
    Uh, things ain’t what they used to be, no no ……………

    It’s all about money. Red light camera’s, speed camera’s. Safety and serving the public. What’s that. Let’s fill the till. Paychecks, pay raises, benefits, early retirement after 20,25 years, pensions. This woman and her daughter must have run into a sadistic cop. Is this any surprise really. I guess cops have stories the length of their arm too, when dealing with the public.

    The days of “officer friendly” are long gone. His tombstone is at the cemetery and moss is growing on it.

  47. Since the media is so good at manipulating the news (making up what they want you to read) I just don’t have any faith left for the media and don’t really care what they have to say about anything, Since it is probably made up any way. When I can get a conservative news agency to print a story and a known liberal (which is most) news agency to agree on a story then I will half believe it.
    If the police taserwed her then she probably deserved it, end of story

  48. The only time you will find the Police that will confront a person is when they are small or look frail. The Police hide behind there cars when they think they might get hurt and they wait until the perpetrate goes to sleep before they come out from behind there cars.

  49. i know a lot of you think that it just certain places and certain officers that are committing these awful things, until it comes knocking at your door. what happened to the people in europe when the communist came into power? they were beat down and taught not to talk b ack

  50. I’m curious about one thing. How did the cops know that this woman was going to be at this store at this time? Yes, I believe there was use of excessive force, not only on the mother but on the child. Since most cops wear body armor these days in their normal duties, I can’t believe some burly cop couldn’t handle a 12 year old girl without using a tazer.

  51. GIVE A LITTLE BOY A NEW TOY AND HE’LL SEARCH THE WORLD OVER UNTIL HE GETS TO USE IT . Since they’re afraid of a twelve year old girl they had best find another job so they won’t need to hide at night . Bet they sleep under the bed == after having their Mommy check the closet .

  52. Do you think that the report may have been soft pedaled just a bit. Have you ever seen some of these videos of black people ASKING A SIMPLE QUESTION. It is definitely a very scarey event as these people are frequently violent.
    You did not get the whole story, for sure. And if you want to get trouble, confront a policeman. Some are criminals as has been seen lately. Some are good and trying to do the job. First presume that you are dealing with an honest man. If not, document and sue.

  53. well it isn’t as good as it could be, but it isn’t as bad as it could get either. Bright side is they were tased not shot, that is a good thing. Hay take care of the small stuff pay your fine or what ever don’t just hand them a legal way to mess wiyh you. they came to arrest you because you didn’t pay and do it the easy way, you gotta do it the hard way and get tased. keep you name clean and you don’t have “screw with me” written on your forehead and it is that simple.GOD BLESS AMERICA

  54. The question at this point should be: ‘Protect[ing]’ what, and ‘Serv[ing]’ whom…? The answer never changed, but the presumption is now [finally] shifting… However, [real] history will [once again] likely record it as the oft cliché ‘too little too late’…

  55. The woman that had the warrants had the right and obligation to pay those tickets! She had the moral obligation to NOT acquire them in the first place. But having committed the violations was her choice! Not that of the police officers. The use of the Taser is a non lethal device used to subdue an indivual that is committing a criminal act against another individual. If she had the money to buy clothes at a Victoria Secrets store (which is not cheap merchandise) then she had the money to pay her fines. THE RESPONSIBILITY WAS HERS AND HERS ALONE! Her actions were the direct result of her daughter getting tased. Maybe if she had set the responsible example none of the above would have happened. Maybe the rights of the taxpaying legal citizens that had obeyed the laws would not have had to incur the costs of the officers time, the costs to the courts and the costs to the public for the care and feeding and possibly medical expenses if she had just done what was expected of her. For all you liberal / progressives out there that disagree with this you need to face the realities of society. SHE VIOLATED THE LAW AND FOR THAT THERE IS A PRICE TO PAY!

    • I would expect that kind of behavior from police on a rapist, a mugger, a murderer, a potential attacker, BUT NOT ON SOMEONE WITH PARKING TICKETS.
      Police are literally getting away with murder nowadays. They are just plain bullies with a badge. These cops need to be fired and punished.

  56. Big brave officer . Is he a kindergarden cop or what??I live in missouri and could expect a rual cop doing this but to have one of St Louises finiest do it is proof we need to return so of the gang back to the police accadamy

  57. Who reported this? If the Mainstream media, I would take it with a grain of salt. It sounds to me most of you are really losing a grip on life. A twelve year old will most likely fight for her mother than not! I really don’t think the cop would have tazed her with out her getting involved with the arrest. Our society is really looking at the cops in the wrong way, it is the people making the laws and then the courts that uphold some of these stupid laws.

  58. The stupid laws need to be changed. Arrested for unpaid parking tickets- really? I could see a court summons, but arrested? That’s capaeus (arrest for civil infractions) gone amock.

    I will agree with RFRider that a 12-year-old is more likely to fight than an adult, especially a girl. Young adolescent girls can be VERY aggressive. Don’t believe me? Try teaching them- I did.

    I also agree that the police enforce the laws that dumb people and dumb courts (and occasionally smart people and smart courts) write or adjudicate. However, the other problem is the change in police model from “peace officer,” maintaining public tranquility and peace, and addressing problems as they arise, to “law enforcement officer,” and the harassing, revenue-enhancing undertones it implies.

  59. When you resist arrest, your ability to cry pity me is just gone. You have no standing. If you committed a crime and you either didn’t pay the fine or didn’t show up in court, those officers have every right to arrest you on that warrant. If you interfere with an arrest, same deal… in both situations, these women, regardless of skin color, got what they deserved. AGE is NOT a deciding factor in whether or not a taser is used. Violence IS. If that individual was acting out that badly, the officers used whatever force was necessary to affect the arrest without injuring the subject or themselves. Now, instead of one criminal, we have two. When 12 year olds get it in their heads that they can attack a police officer, I have no pity for them. I’ve been in Law Enforcement and I can tell you, there is a use of force continuum that is employed. Those officers didn’t just bum rush this woman in Victoria’s secret and tackle her as this idiotic story would have you believe. The made contact with her and she resisted and at some point, she needed to be taken down to place her in restraints. At some point subsequent to that, the 12 year old got it in HER head that it would be a good idea to interfere and or attack the officers. Both were probably warned not to resist several times and barring that were warned they would be tased if they did not comply. Laws are not ridiculous as this writer would have you believe. You may not agree with them, but they are there for a reason and all you have to do is obey the law and you won’t be in this position. I, for one, am sick of seeing these undisciplined “writers” mischaracterize Law enforcement officers as criminals simply because they do their job. Maybe, just maybe, you could do a little more research into the why of this and report what actually happened instead of trying to sensationalize and instigate.

  60. Cops are performing the duties of a dictatorship. On top of that MANY of them are on power highs, stroking their weak egos by bullying people. Add to that the influence of their thug union bosses & you have a pretty toxic mix.
    By the way, no one is disgusted in a mommy taking her 12 year old daughter to a glorified se x shop? Should 12 year olds be allowed to attack police officers if they are displeased with them? Not a fan of cops & I do NOT think they were justified in their behavior in this case but where is respect & common sense anymore?

  61. Unfortunately, age has nothing to do with it; neither does gender. I have seen wild animals that were not as rabid as the crap that some people try to pull… but of course this does not mean that I know the facts in this particular situation.
    As far as an arrest warrent for nothing but ‘parking tickets’, the woman probably ignored a judge’s ruling to pay them, hence the warrent when she didn’t (obviously she could afford to pay as shopping in Victoria’s Secret is not cheap).
    -If- the situation called for it, I’m glad they got tased. -If- the situation did not call for it, man those are some wussy cops.

  62. These cops went into a public business to arrest someone over traffic tickets….thus endangering everyone in that public business…..they didn’t know if this woman was heavily armed!! Then they physically assualt her for asking what was this about…..over traffic tickets! Then when her 12 year old daughter gets upset they not only tase her but they do. It twice!!!
    These people need to be FIRED .for lack of judgement…endangering the public and basic stupidty!!! TRAFFIC TICKETS!!!!!!!!!!

  63. When the President can legally order an American citizen killed, corporations can spy on Americans, police no longer need warrants and habeas corpus is a thing of the past… who is to blame but ourselves?
    I can’t even leave a comment here without giving a corporation access to my identity, personal information and contact list. And THAT is just the beginning.

  64. With the moral degeneration of America proceding apace, it is hardly a wonder that the police are also in a state of moral degenration. This would never have happened in a Christian society; and it never did when America was Christian.
    America needs to take stock of the moral direction that it is heading into. America is in desperate need of religious conversion, at all levels of society including police. America is beginning to look more and more like Nazi Germany.
    When I was a kid on the streets of Detroit 60 years ago, the cop on the beat was the best friend a guy could ask for, willing to do almost anything to help any one who need help.
    What we are witnessing now is the moral degeneration of society, and it is happening at all levels of society.
    What America needs is a new moral revitalization at all level so society.

  65. Municipal infractions are nothing more & certainly nothing less than revenue streams. There is neither a damaged party nor anything beyond a legal fiction under colour of law being “Damaged” & subsequently any “Damage” is purely a civil matter for pursuit, NOT an arrestable offense.

    In American Jurisprudence, there HAD To be a “Damage” or a Tort based upon infringements of an other persons Life, Liberty, or Property for either a crime to have taken place or a civil basis for a tort-claim.

    “Legal fictions” have neither rights nor property nor liberties.

    But this is the America that do-nothing centrists allowed to “progressively” evolve.

    Police have gone from the injunction of “To Protect & Serve” to “Law Enforcement” for the State/City/Feds.

    They are no longer humbly under the auspices of “We the People”.

    Parking tickets??? Seriously???…What’s next?? Debtors Prison (Which is essentially what “Parking tickets” amount to: a Supposed “Debt” owed to the City).

    I’m a Emigrant and I can “See” the utter brown-shirted (As Raymond poignantly points out) aspect of this type scenario.

    I’m reminded of when the trains, filled with Jews, would come through the Cities often-times right behind the “Churches” on Sunday’s headed for the “Kamps”. The people in the churches could hear the shrieks and pleas from the trapped women, children & men on YouTube: watch?v=mDKcF–1hEc

    What did they do???. It is reported that they simply sang their Hymns….L-O-U-D-E-R until the trains passed on through.

    How different are we in this Country…..???.

    I’m also reminded of Revelation 13:15 with the “Beast” being nothing but a “Legal Fiction”, like a municipality or other-wise constituted “Thing”….

    But what do I know??..I am just one of those stupid LEGAL Emigrants to this Country with a genetic disdain for L’Anglaise while being an adherent to “Fringe” beliefs…

  66. Unfortunately, this article is fairly accurate. We have waaaay too many Barney Fife’s in our police depts. I have noticed that a lot of the school bullies became policeman. I wonder why that is ? Most of these morons while in school, couldn’t tie their own shoes and the counties and states hire them to monitor ? Scary !

  67. With out seeing a picture of this 12 year old,how do we know she isn’t a 275lb chicken munching bluegumbed beast.The hood is full of obese 12 yr olds. That would stab you in the back for a bag of skittles.

  68. The Mentally Inept hired by the Morally Corrupt to manipulate the Psychologically Weak into willing submission.
    It is no wonder that the media focuses on these types of stories instead of real issues. Solving political corruption needs to be the Primary focus of the media if America is to return to prosperity. One sort of Corruption or another is the cause of all problems Americans Face (d) yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
    Political Corruption, the ART of deception through conjuring up 2000 page bills which disguise corruption as moral imperatives is only practiced by Government.
    The destruction of Religion is viewed as necessary by Aspiring Politicians simply because the Law and Principles of religious belief is so plainly stated (thou shalt not steal) as to be a danger to the careers of the Corrupt. Simply stated, if Mandatory Taxation were to be viewed as theft, the power, that is Govt. would immediately crumble without the funding it wastes so frivolously. Without Taxpayers money the theatre, which is politics, can only be sustained for a few hours,days, or weeks, but, with continuing theft via corruption it will still only last until money has no value left. That day is rapidly approaching.

  69. If we where living in Mayberry you could trust the authorities, but now we have a president racist dividing the people by skin color and money for his own political gain. I was not at the scene of what happened so I will with hold my words, unlike obamas propaganda press core. I do agree our police force and justice systems are a joke a lot of the time, but it starts rotting at the top and spreads all the way through the system. This started long before obama became president, he has only increased corruption on a far faster pace than before.

  70. I don’t know, have you seen how brutishly strong and quicksilver fast these 12 year old girls are? Don’t let the Hello Kitty bookbag and Justin Bieber t shirt fool you. Or the fact that they are UNARMED give you cause for worry. That 12 year old little girl could have been hiding an MP-4 and numerous hand grenades in that bookbag. She might have been a member of the Hello Kitty Underground Liberation Front.. Or maybe these LEO’s were scared that that 12 year old would have kicked their asses and caused them to need disability retirement. I mean, c’mon, grown men are just no match for an unarmed 12 year old girl.

    But, in reality, these government sanctioned thugs need to be sued in civil court and be paupers for the rest of their lives.

  71. They need to fired now. There is no excuse for not at least being civil to those they are arresting and explaining why it’s happening. The uneeded use of force they should be sued for.

  72. One of those officers could pick up a 12yo with one arm. Even a female officer. Unless they were hired under the new government guidelines that make it FAIR in hiring Wimps. One can easily recognize that people that are able to buy things at this store are not super size people. My question is how did they know she was their in the first place. Second the methods used in securing this woman is in question. Why approach in a store? wouldn’t it be easier to put her under surveillance and then approach her outside of the store where no others could become injured? These guys have radios. follow her outside the store and have another officer step in front and the other come from behind. This way they are prepared. The police are in place to protect the general public, they didn’t do their job. Also what would have been the harm of letting her get to her car and block it in its parking space? Hind sight is wonderful, too bad these officers don’t have foresight. Training would help.
    God bless America.
