14 Year Old Native American Girl Undergoes Surgery After Being Shocked by Police from Behind

I've come across another anti-electrocution blog called, "Electricity is for Lightbulbs"

, which reports the case of a Native American girl who was seriously injured after being shot in the head with an electrocution device.

Tasing A 14-Year-Old Girl In The Head

From NM (and of course some police fanboys come to this cop's defense in the comments):

A 14-year-old Tucumcari girl is recovering at an Albuquerque hospital after being shot in the head with a Taser dart by Tucucmari Police Chief Roger Hatcher.

Now, her parents say they want the police department to review its policies for using the Taser.

The girl was hit in the head Thursday by one of two darts fired simultaneously as she was fleeing, Hatcher said.

The other dart lodged in her hip.

Hatcher said be believed he had no other option.

“There’s a lot of issues,” Hatcher said. “She committed a delinquent act. She was running from police across traffic without looking.”

Let's keep an eye on the electrocution news reported at the Electricity's for Lightbulbs blog.

Hey Anonymous, you have to be a real moron to believe it is ok for police to taser a teen from behind in the head with a taser.
