There is no place for this stuff in society. It is better these out of control young ladies learn now before 10 years from now they bring their 12 children down to the downtown mall, start talking smack to a security guard and get tazed in front of their kids.

Well obviously the police officer gave her verbal commands before deploying his tazer. She failed to follow the verbal commands and got tazed. I hope next time the verbal command is not drop the gun before she gets shot. If the cop tells you to do something then do it. The tazer or pepper spray is an appropriate use of force for this situation. Pepper spray would have been worse contaminating the bus and other individuals. The tazer worked like a charm and didnt injure anyone. Problem solved.

This is the life in the Atlanta area for you. On one end of the spectrum, you have this and on the other end, you have rednecks shooting their guns wildly an carefree with little regard to the people living in the immediate area.

Some of the comments have gotten a bit personal and attackish. One word, folks - "Don't".

Stick to the topic only... not what you think about other's opinions or other posters, please.

Without knowing all the details of the situation, let's not forget that not every middle school girl is a sweet and cute little child. Hell, it's just as naive to pigeonhole them into that stereotype as it is to assume that the girls in this case were some sort of "thugs." Speaking of which, I'd like to echo LovelySummer's comments--we need to be really careful with the racial stereotyping here.

What should the officer risk getting hurt while jumping in the middle of a fight or spraying pepper spray onto everyone other then the intended target. Good job to the officer. Thug goes to jail. Probably their babies daddy never taught them any respect.

Do you guys think it's wrong for kids to defend themselves in school? I have never heard this opinion before.

Was I the only one disturbed by the mother's "aww my poor baby" reaction? I don't know about you guys, but if *I* had gotten into a fight so bad that the school cop had to taze me, I would have been terrified to get anywhere near my parents for at least the next couple of days.

Another thing: There is a real reason that the male SRO did not make physical contact with these female students, and it's called liability. Yes, the way things are these days, that officer could well have taken a greater liability risk by merely making physical contact with the girls, even to break up the fight.

If you actually listen to the girl she said she was attacked and defended herself.

Me always being the kid who was picked on and told I needed to stand up for myself if my mom found out I got into a fight at school she would know I was just pushed to edge and doing what I should have been doing/ she has been telling me to do since I started going to school with kids with bad parents.

This is definitely true nowadays.

My wife taught back in the day and said the girls were a bit worse than the boys when it came to fighting in school. But who knows what happens when they leave school grounds?

So what lawyer will they call to sue APS? I guess they will also sue the city and the taser maker.
