"Police Chief Bob Grandpre said three officers responded Friday night to a report of a suicidal 8-year-old girl who had stabbed herself in the leg. She was holding a 4½-inch knife to her chest when officers arrived, and she refused to put it down.

One officer took a step toward the child but stopped when she turned the knife toward him.

"She immediately put the knife back at her chest," said the chief of police in this city of about 14,000 that is the capital of South Dakota."

How would you have dealt with an 8 year old holding a knife to her chest?

I wonder how the parents would have felt if she did hurt herself, or worse killed herself? Im sure they would have cried out that the police should have done some thing, ANYTHING.

Yup, they probably would have even mentioned using a taser or other non lethal methods. Bet you there's a lawsuit coming.

IMHO, from the facts given the it was justified...now if there was a body cavity search afterwards...we could start asking questions!

The "leg wound" is understandable, You'd be amazed how a call will go out as a domestic dispute over land and escalate to a double murder.

If the officers would have let the girl stab herself they'd been sued for for not doing their job. The officers were commissioned by the Police Chief or Sheriff to use their discretion when handling an incident, The officer decided it was better to taser this girl instead of giving her the chance to do any more harm to herself or others. This is no different than referees making calls at a football game or an ump calling a baseball game.

I completely agree with Jebus and the officer who pulled the taser.
I've been tased it doesn't feel good but i've also seen an officer tase a 300 lbs. drug head running towards us. The officer looked at me and said "Hey, Its better than a bullet hole."

I've been tasered in training exercises. While it is far from a fun experience (Especially if it was the morning after chili night) it is a very effective tool when it comes to quickly and safely bringing a dangerous situation under control.

And to anyone who thinks a small little knife is 'safe', just remember how easy it is to open a wound that will bleed a grown man out in less than a minute with a blade shorter than your average thumb.
