This story is a bit of a stunner. A police officer in New Mexico has appeared in court after allegedly using his Taser gun, unprovoked, on a 10-year-old boy.
The boy, "RD," was playing with a group of friends at a playground when Officer Webb asked them who would like to clean his patrol car. When RD was the only one who refused, the police officer fired his 50,000-volt weapon at the boy, to show him "'what happens to people who do not listen to police," according to the Daily Mail.
Do you allow your kids to hang out at the local playground by themselves?
