america: land of the 40,000 volt pigs

So police tasered a 12-year-old  girl a couple days ago. 

Police say the officer came into the Victoria's Secret looking for the girl's mom, who had warrants for her arrest.
'This one goes in my chest. It was stuck in there so she had to keep on pulling trying to pull it out,' said Dejamon Baker, as she pointed to a small wound on her chest. Baker has a matching wound on her stomach. 'I had fell on the floor and I couldn't control myself, I just kept on shaking and stuff,' said the girl.

The warrant for her mother's arrest was based on traffic tickets, which seems like a good use of public safety resources given there is absolutely no violent crime whatsoever that police could be putting in some effort to stop. It's not like there have been over 400 murders since 2009 St. Louis and less than half have been solved. Oh wait, that's exactly the fucking case.

So friends and underpaid contractors forced to read the millions of "subversive" internet musings, if it wasn't made clear by the thousands of other similar incidents that happen all the godsdamned time, cops are are fully willing to murder the hell out of you if you so much as look at them cross-eyed. And if you happen to be a black person, or homeless person, or pot smoker, or hispanic person, or gender-nonconforming individual, or political activist your odds of dying by police hands go up considerably.

So in the first referenced case a little girl, who couldn't possibly pose a threat even if she were wielding a fully-fueled chainsaw, is extremely unhappy that her mother is being violently assaulted by police officers--a natural reaction virtually everyone has when seeing a family member injured by another.

The girl then reacts like a child would, screaming and crying, and because all cops are pigs these pigs decided the best course of action was electrocute a 12-year-old child for the crime of having a mother with traffic tickets and being a 12-year-old child.

So there you have it, the military--er, I mean, the "police" now taser unarmed children they find to be pesky or bothersome. At least they aren't shooting them in the head, right? Aw shit, you've got to be fucking kidding me.
