When a Conyers, Georgia police officer saw a brawl break out at a high school, he didn’t hesitate to use his taser. Now he’s being criticized for it.
“They shot my child down like a dog, it’s just disturbing for any parent to see they child just be hit like that,” said Shelly Norman, the parent of the girl involved in the fight.
Norman’s 17-year-old daughter, dressed in long pants, can be seen in the video involved in a fight with a male classmate at Rockdale County High School.
Students watching and recording the fight saw the officer and warned the fighting students.
“Yo the officer right there,” says one person.
The boy seems to pause for a second because the officer is approaching but Norman’s daughter just keeps attacking. That’s when the officer fires the taser, causing one dart to go into each teen and incapacitating both of them.
