The Cincinnati police department said it’s reviewing its policies after an Ohio police officer expended an electroshock artillery on an 11 -year-old girl accused of shoplifting, an incident which stimulated local municipality officials to call for a “complete investigation.”
Police said it all started inside a Spring Grove Village store around 9:30 p.m. Monday. The girlfriend, a fifth grader “whos not” being identified because she is a underage, was allegedly discerned taking merchandise at a Kroger grocery store and sitting it in a knapsack. Police claim that when an off-duty police officer approached the girl, she “ignored the Officer and continued to walk away.” That’s when the detective then outraged “their childrens” with the Taser’s prongs, stumbling her in the back.
Authorities have not protected the officer’s actions.
“We are most related when make is used by one of our policemen on small children of this age, ” Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said in a Tuesday statement. “As a solution, we will be taking a very thorough its consideration of our policies as it relates to using force on teenagers as well as the propriety of the officer’s actions.”
