Tasering Students

I was kidding about the electric shock collars for students, but sometimes truth is stranger than fiction:

Donna Hudepohl, a school resource officer called to remove the troubled girl from the classroom, was allegedly pushed and punched in the face during a struggle to restrain her.

Hudepohl responded by tasering the girl.

The student was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, disrupting a school function as well as resisting with violence and is being held at the juvenile detention center.

Hudepohl was treated for a possible broken nose.

This is one of the problems undisciplined children have--they don't understand that while their parents and teachers may be helpless, physically or legally, to physically restrain them, police officers are not. You will follow the instructions of police officers; if you do not, the penalty will be much more stringent than "time out" or a lunch detention.
