Parents sue after employers zapped children during bring child to work day
The ABA Journal.com is reporting today (story here) that "at least one parent of a Florida schoolchild has sued over "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day," after guards at three separate state prisons zapped visiting children with electronic stun guns . . . to demonstrate how they worked." Shockingly, (excuse the pun!) this comes just a day or two after Prof. Jonathan Turley reported in his website that a 41 year old man in Oregon was arrested for putting an electric dog collar on each of his four children and then shocking them because he “thought it was funny.” (Story here). Prof. Turley also reported on similar stories of officers or parents to view tasers as a fun distraction here and here and here and here.
