- 10 Year old tasered by Arkansas police. Don't Tase Me, Bro! (2009-11-20). Officer Dustin Bradshaw, a grown-ass man working for the Ozark government’s police force, decided to torture an “unruly” 10 year old with a 50,000-volt electric blast after she kicked him in the groin. Then he handcuffed her and arrested her for “disorderly conduct.” The charge is that she “screamed, kicked and resisted” when her mother tried to get her to take a shower before bed. Officer Dustin Bradshaw’s boss, Police Chief Jim Noggle, tells the press that he took no disciplinary action at all against Officer Dustin Bradshaw because “He had no other choice” than to torture, handcuff, and arrest her, because “he had to get the child under control.” No, he didn’t.
