Children held hands so that 50,000 volts could pass through their fingers. Other children were exposed to tear gas.
A total of 43 children were directly and indirectly shocked by electric stun guns during simultaneous Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day events gone wrong at three state prisons last month. One was a warden's daughter.
None of the children required medical attention or were notably harmed, McNeil said. He said the victims, who ranged in age from 5 to 17, were all children of prison officials. In nearly every case, the guards who administered the "electronic immobilization devices" had permission from parents or grandparents.
Maybe those kids were tested for heart conditions before the tasering took place. You're assuming they weren't. At least the defenders acknowledged that they were making unqualified statements.
This form of argument is about as effective as "believing" your child does not have an undiagnosed heart condition before you allow him a shock to the system.
If you insist on the power of blind supposition with regard to keeping children from harm, please allow me to direct you to the contraceptive aisle. I KNOW condoms can prevent bad parenting.
Officer: Well we use these tasers blah blah blah
Kid:Can I try it?
Kid 2: Ohh Me too?
Kid 3 Me Too?
Officer: Umm I dont know
Parent: Sure why not.
Sounds like fun to me.
