POWHATAN COUNTY, VA — Think back to 8th grade: do you remember ever talking out loud or being “disruptive”?
Imagine if the punishment was an armed police officer approaching you and shooting you with a Taser gun, frying your nervous system with electrical voltage, for being “disruptive.”
That’s what happened at Powhatan Junior High School on Friday, according to reports.
An officer at the school shot an 8th grade student with a Taser gun for “being disruptive.”
The Powhatan Sheriff’s Department claims that it started when the student was “disruptive” in the cafeteria.
The student was then taken to the assistant principal’s office, where, they claim, the “disruptive” behavior continued.
An armed police officer stepped in and decided to try to place the student in handcuffs, but the student reacted by trying to flee, according to reports.
That’s when the officer pointed his Taser gun at the student and shot him as the student was running away from the officer.
The Sheriff’s Department claims that the child “attacked” the officer while the officer was trying to restrain his wrists, and the child was then charged with “felony assault on an officer.”
“It’s obviously scary to see a child get Tased,” said Chris Parks, a parent whose children go to the same school.
“It was shocking,” he added.
This article will be updated as more information is made available pertaining to the officer’s identity and whether he will face disciplinary action, as well as whether the child’s parents were contacted.

Shooting him in the back?…The ultimate coward. Ya know, Boris Nemtsov was shot 4 times in the back….just sayin’.
These cops are nothing more than scarecrows…soulless and hollow.
Their monopoly on violence will end, ironically, with violence.
That cop should live in fear. If a cop did that to my son I would hunt him down and XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
No mention at all of exactly what the “disruptive” behavior might have been, but I wouldn’t believe their account of it anyway.
They shovel so many lies that they’re tripping over them from one sentence to the next: If they shot him with a taser when he was running away, how exactly did he commit a “felony assault on an officer”?
Cops have to go. Every last one of them. There are no good cops because they’ve been trained to be violent criminals, and they’ve been trained to lie in court about their endless brutality. They’ve been placed above the law for the purpose of beating the citizenry into submission, and this has made EVERYONE who wears a badge a dangerous menace to society.
And anyone who calls the cops on another American is aiding and abetting cop crimes.
