Tasers and Young Children. This issue is something I find truly disturbing. Yesterday I read an article and posted the link on my blog in my Native American Corner posting for the day. The article entitled: SD Police Say Tazing 8-Year-Old Native Girl Was Justified, Family Sues speaks to how it took four police officers to control an 8-year-old girl who was no more than 4 feet tall, 71-pound girl. Some paint a wild, disrespectful, uncontrollable picture of this girl. Other speak to how sweet she can be. The reality is as said by the young girls grandmother, 8-year-old children will most often do whatever you tell them to do. If they are doing wrong, it’s not that hard to get them to change their mind and do the right thing.

I have a set of twins that are 14-years-old. One of them stands at 5’3 and just finally made it up to 97-pounds. She is a toothpick. I’m certain if 4 police officers were tossing her around that would snap her in two. I can’t even begin to picture the interaction that the four police officers had with the 8-year-old back in October of 2013.  She had a small paring knife, but the article doesn’t say that she was trying to hurt anyone with it. Regardless, if there were four police officers, there is no way that between them, they couldn’t have maneuvered their way around her eliminating the need to use a stun gun on her.

I would be concerned about causing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This child must have been scared out of her mind having a gun of any kind pointed at her at such a young age. I can see no reasonable explanation for such an act.

Its my feeling that strict guidelines should be made and required for the use of stun guns.  There should be weight and age requirements. No child under the age of 17 or 120 lbs should have a Taser used on them.  If a child has any disability then a stun gun should not be used at all.

Please explain this situation to me someone, anyone.  It’s outrageously insane.

Poem of the Day

A Family through and through

The kids and Nicole - memories 07-24-14

Mommy,

Auntie

Oldest Daughter – First Generation

Middle Child (Daughter) – First Generation

Only Son – First Generation

Oldest Daughter (Twin) – Second Generation

Middle Daughter (Twin) – Second Generation

Youngest Daughter – Second Generation


There once was a young woman

Single as could be

She met a man she loved who gave her the gift of a daughter

One day he was there and one day he wasn’t

But she was still there tending to their daughter

with the help of her youngest sister who was proud to be an Auntie

The years pass and the woman marries

When happy no more she left the place she called home

Painting her new home she falls to the floor from fainting

A trip to the doctor tells her she’s to again be a proud mother

and then came the gift of another daughter

what a beautiful gift

Alone in a strange place

They had now become the three amigos

Sad and lonely she returns home to the town she will forever love

More years pass she finds love again

She marries and is given the gift of a child

This time she would bear her only son

Sadly two years later her husband passes

She’s alone again naturally

But she’s not truly alone

She has three beautiful children

She wonders if she’ll ever find love again

One day she finds herself a trucker

and once again she marries

Having tied her tubes years ago

She thinks she will never have the gift of children again

Someone else lets her know she’s yet a mother again

To her shock she finds she’s having twins

and low and behold she has more daughters as cute as can be

and after two more years she has her last gift and it’s again a daughter

She ties her tubes one last time

and her tree is complete

But sadly her marriage again fell victim and she and her tree of children were on their own again, naturally

Of course she wasn’t meant to be alone

But who was out there? Would she ever truly find her forever love?

One day at play in the park with her kids

The love of her life stops by

She dreamed of him as a little girl

Delivered newspapers to his family home

But years passed and they were never free at the same time

And now they were both free

And what was truly meant to be

Could begin

And she finally found her forever love and they married

Now they are

A Family through and through

Happily blended ever after
