11 Year Old Girl Tasered At An Elementary School

Girl, 11, Tasered After Punching Cop www.11alive.com An altercation at a Florida elementary school ended with an 11-year-old girl being tasered and sent to the hospital on Thursday. It happened at Moss Park Elementary in Orange County. Authorities said the altercation happened during the school’s morning announcements and both the student and the officer were injured. The deputy shocked the student with the Taser gun after the student allegedly punched her in the face. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said the student who was shocked was trying to push another student into oncoming traffic. Other students went to teachers to report the incident. “There should be guidance counselors. The principal should have been there to calm the child down instead of having an officer do it,” parent Cherley Constant said. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said there were a few teachers around. They said the 11-year-old shoved a desk and chair, started spitting at the teachers and refused to go to the principal’s office. “She was crying. She had tears coming down her face. She was bright red,” student Taliesin Ploeg said of the girl who got shocked with a Taser gun. The teachers called in the campus resource officer, but she said she was punched in the nose by the student. That’s when she used her Taser gun. “I think they should be able to restrain the child without having to Taser the child, especially at such a young age,” parent Brenda Aloiau said.
