WTF: Cops Taser 10-Year-Old Kid At Tender Teddies Day Care

"Cops Taser"

We know we’ve been talking about bad a*s kids needing good old-fashioned whoopings these days, but this is out of hand:

Two Martinsville police officers have been suspended after they were accused of using a Taser to subdue a 10-year-old. A news release from the mayor’s office and the Martinsville Police Department said the officers responded Tuesday evening to Tender Teddies Day Care on reports of a 10-year-old who was out of control.

The release said that the officers, trying to prevent the child from hurting other children, staff members and himself, slapped the boy and then used a Taser to subdue him. Officials said officers had been called to the day care before about the same child.

“One of the police officers came out here and said they have trouble with him all the time because he is a problem child,” said neighbor Stephanie Hamilton. “He was kicking and screaming … and he wouldn’t quit.” Kenneth Frazier said he believes the boy needs help.

“I don’t think that should have happened. I’m sure they could have detained him some other way,” he said. “They take big grown ups down without tasing them … why a 10-year-old?”

Wow. Two grown police officers needed a damn taser to subdue a 10-year-old at Tender Teddies Day Care??? That just sounds ALL WRONG. WTF?

    This does sound all wrong. However, I don’t understand how the daycare can let the child remain, after the first incident with the police.

  • You Smell Me??

    Wait. 10 years old? Was this a 6′-7″ man child?

    You can subdue a 10 year old with an xbox and cookies…

    Thats sounds like really harsh treatment for a 10 year old child…they couldve just restrained him!

  • WeeZee

  • WeeZee

  • simeon

    I don’t know what’s worse. The police or the weak a$$ Day care staff that called the police. If you can’t control a 10 year old you’re worthless.

    mental illness is growin anongst our children these days, they arwe stressing out at such a young age…

    when you are dealing like a matter like this it can be very sensitive.

    Those pigs handles incorrectly! But those are pigs the filthiest of them all…

  • wonder_woman

    @WeeZee-LMBAO!! I feel ya. I don’t know the whole story, but I will say that I’ve worked with children in a school & mental health setting, and when I noticed a child was gearing up to set it off, there are techniques I used to deescalate the situation. I’ve worked with ages 10-17, who were considered the “worst of the worst,” and I NEVER had this kind of problem.

  • tell it like it is....

    If that were my kid, all of those mofo’s would be unemployed for the rest of their life. This behaviour is questionable with adults let alone a child.

    I am also against physical chastisement. Since when is it ok to hit someone because they are not behaving properly? All of you people that think it is ok, I suggest you slap your boss next time they are out of pocket and see what happens. Despite what you may think, children are people too and the most vulnerable.

  • chid4lyfe

    never call a child a problem child

  • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983. 15 Days. Bossip is like a bad accident...I cannot look away!!!

    Is he autistic? Maybe he needs to be tested for some of those mental diseases before they go around slapping and tasing kids.

    Just a thought.

  • syt

    the lil boy must of been black for them to taser him like that

  • Candid Canuck

    this wouldn’t have happened if they were in the Caribbean…

  • Patrice

    Disgusting that this sort of thing happened. I have a 7 year old who has Asperger’s syndrome which is a high functioning Autism, do any of you know anything about these children ??? Honestly where is the protection all children deserve? U all leave these disturbing comment’s and it is gross to think u even live in our society. Maybe you need you Lil BIG A** TASERED, WHATCHA THINK OF THAT?? SICK, SICK PEOPLE. Lemme tell u when a autistic child or Asperger child throw’s a Tantrum, it can be really, really bad sometime’s, and it takes a special person or people to love, care and have patience. This disgusting USA, is a disgrace, I am embarrased of the USA for allowing this shi* to happen. That’s all I can say.

    This is crazy. I work at a daycare and we have kids that sometime get out of control, but we don’t call the police on them. All they had to do was offer the kid a snack or something and trust me it would have worked. If not, you call the parents to come and pick him up and tell them to find another center to place their child in. If this was my child everybodies a.s.s. will be sued. You don’t taser kids. That’s just down right cruel!

  • t

    fuk that!! calm down or get tasered. to avoid this deny the child at the daycare. if he cant be controlled then they shouldnt keep him. mental illness, whatever, the parents need to handle this. he probably receives no discipline from home and thinks he can just act a a**. they said its not the 1st time. next time shoot his lil bas a** in the knee caps…white or black
