This story poses a bit of a conundrum.

On one hand, the idea of police tasering a girl with cerebral palsy is horrible.

On the other, she was smashing stuff up with a cricket bat.

Isn't it a good thing she was treated just like everybody else?

They would have done better to smash her over the bonce with the bat and claim a googly

A 16-year-old girl with cerebral palsy is tasered by police at her school in Townsville in north Queensland, with the girl's mother saying the teenager is also suspended over the incident.

Doesn't sound to me as if this was proportionate.

"Police opt to use a taser when they are faced with volatile incidents and where there is risk of serious injury to officers, staff and members of the public," a police spokesperson said.

I find it hard to believe that anyone was endangered in this case.

She had a cricket bat and was smashing up the place.

Sounds like as usual even before the investigation is complete you spport the mother. Why is that? Were you there? what evidence did you have from a witness that the police action was excessive before posting this?

Can you ask the Hostess if you can post the link from your forum? The one where Dicko defends the animals who were set free by a Spaniard court for raping a young lass?
