The officer had been called to the girl’s home in Ozark, Arkansas, by her mother because she was behaving in an unruly manner and refusing to take a shower.

In a report on the incident the officer, Dustin Bradshaw, said the mother gave him permission to use the Taser.
When he arrived, the girl was curled up on the floor, screaming, and resisting as her mother tried to get her in the shower before bed.

“Her mother told me to take her if I needed to,” the officer wrote.

The child was “violently kicking and verbally combative” when he tried to take her into custody and she kicked him in the groin.
He then delivered “a very brief drive stun to her back,” the report said.

The girl’s father, Anthony Medlock, who is divorced from her mother, said the girl showed signs of emotional problems but did not deserve to be “treated like an animal”.

He said: “Ten years old and they shot electricity through her body, and I want to know how the heck in God’s green earth can they get away with this.

“If you can’t pick the kid up and take her to your car, handcuff her, then I don’t think you need to be an officer. She doesn’t deserve to be treated like a dog. She’s not a tiger.”

Local Mayor Vernon McDaniel said the FBI should investigate.

He said: “People here feel like that he made a mistake in using a Taser, and maybe he did, but we will not know until we get an impartial investigation.” The local Police Chief Jim Noggle said no disciplinary action was taken against Bradshaw.”

We didn’t use the Taser to punish the child, just to bring the child under control so she wouldn’t hurt herself or somebody else,” he said.

He said if the officer tried to forcefully put the girl in handcuffs, he could have accidentally broken her arm or leg.

Mr Noggle said the girl will face disorderly conduct charges as a juvenile.

Micro-Chipping Of USCitizens To Be Mandatory?

By Jack Williams

Already, It Looks As if Micro-chipping of US Citizens Will Soon Be Mandatory.

US federal legislation seems to be written by illiterates, or by foreigners, none of whom seem to understand English very well, which the Controllers prefer as that gives them more latitude with interruption and enforcement: Obama’s health care bill is a case in point.

Congressman John Conyers (D-Michigan), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, even questioned the sense of reading Obama’s 1,990 page health care bill by saying, “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill.’ What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill.

“Sorry to have to expose you to a portion of that very poorly written, 1990 page health care bill (Subtitle C-11 Sec. 2521 National Medical Device Registry), but maybe you can tell me what it means.

“… the Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this Subsection referred to as the Registry) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that – (A) is that has been used in or on a patient; and (B) is a Class III device; or (ii) A Class II device that is Implantable…

“Well, enough of that, a person can take only so much nonsense at one sitting. But, ask yourself a simple question: Are we to be multi-chipped, complete with updates, like a computer program, with our yearly rounds of multi-inoculations?

Child mental health fears prompt rise of ‘quick fix’ drugs

Growing numbers of parents are turning to drugs for a “quick fix” solution to their children’s mental disorders, figures show.

By Graeme Paton, Education Editor – The Telegraph

Sami Timimi, consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist in the NHS and a visiting professor at Lincoln University, said the trend underlined the “McDonaldisation” of childhood mental health.
He said that, like fast food, the medical industry fed on “peoples’ desire for instant satisfaction and a quick fix”.

More children were taking medication to deal with emotional difficulties, anxiety, eating disorders and behavioural problems with little evidence of improvements, he said.

Prof Timimi cited a 2004 study in which researchers analysed prescriptions in nine countries over a two-year period. It found significant increases in drugs to deal with childhood mental health problems. The lowest rise was in Germany – 13 per cent – and the highest was the UK, with 68 per cent.

Separate figures showed that in the UK, prescriptions for stimulants increased from about 6,000 in 1994 to over 450,000 by 2004.

“By viewing children’s poor behaviour and distressed emotional state as being caused by an ‘illness’, all are apparently spared from further scrutiny,” he said in the book Childhood, Wellbeing and a Therapeutic Ethos. “The result, however, fits into another aspect of our ‘fast culture’. With the widespread application of the techniques of medicine to manage our children’s behaviour and emotional state, particularly through use of drugs, we have achieved what I call the ‘McDonaldisation’ of children’s mental health.

“Like fast food, recent medication-centred practice comes from the most aggressively consumerist society (USA), feeds on peoples desire for instant satisfaction and a ‘quick fix’, fits into a busy life-style, requires little engagement with the product, requires only the most superficial training, knowledge, and understanding to produce the product, and has the potential to produce immeasurable damage in the long term to both the individuals who consume these products as well as to public health more generally.”
