The Panda with a Gun
Besides that she threaten her life. Then turned the knife on the officer then by definition of law that was self defense.
In court I personally believe the parents have no grounds really.
I'm not a lawyer or a cop yet. But from what I have learned in my classes so far. What the officer did was justifiable.
I'm just happy this report didn't sound like it was leaning towards one side. It stated everything that happened.

taser used on 8 yr old girl... don't know what to say about this one.
I'm also really loving how completely oblivious the parents sound in their statements... "Acting out"??? Seriously? Acting out is talking back or locking herself in her room. Waving a knife at your babysitter, and then a police officer, is not "acting out" it's a sign of some serious mental/behavioral issues.

WHat i dont understand is, why did they even call the police in the first place?
What did they even expect by calling the police?
Try to take the knife from the girl, and she might end up stabbing herself or even the officer. Leave it with her, and she might do the same and there is no point in the policemen being called int eh first place.
Way i saw it, police officer took the course of action that put the girl in the least amount of danger.

Doesn't care (/◕ヮ◕)/
Sounds like the guy would have been boned either way.
really as bad as this sounds, he probably would have been in less trouble if she stabbed herself in the chest with it.
This article is a bit annoying because on the title. I say shame on the news reporters titling this in a way to sound like the most horrible thing ever to get attention (kinda a joke but kinda not).

So the cop tazed a kid thus potentially saving her and preventing injury to his own person.
I'm entirely ok with this.
And I doubly agree with Heinous. Knives kill people, too.

I support this officer in this situation as this was the best response he could have done assuming the observations of the little girl were correct. Some children and adults may have mental disabilities that prevent them from understanding that a knife will actually kill themselves, and use the whole suicide thing as a call for attention. I have witnessed this in a child (grade 8). He put scissors to his neck saying he would commit suicide (to get attention) but due to his mental condition couldnt realize that suicide would mean he would be dead forever. Luckily a support staff was nearby to disarm him.
