Sometimes a story doesn’t need any additional commentary:

March 29th, 2011

A domestic dispute that boiled over at a business led to a woman being arrested for disorderly conduct after she used a child as a shield against being Tasered.

According to Glendale police:

A 36-year-old Milwaukee woman was arrested for disorderly conduct/domestic at the service area at Andrew Toyota, buy viagra look 1620 W. Silver Spring Drive, at 12:15 p.m. March 24.

When police arrived, the woman was holding the hand of a child while shaking her finger in the face of her boyfriend, an employee of Andrew, while yelling, “Give me my weed back!”

She struggled with police, refused to give her name and held the child in front of her to avoid being Tasered.

The boyfriend said the two had been living together for a few months but when asked what the woman’s last name was said he wasn’t sure. He also said he didn’t want her arrested but police told him, they had no choice.

    Why is a taser an appropriate response in a situation like this?

    You’d prefer a billy club?!!!!

    A good, old-fashioned tackling would have sufficed. Don’t tase her, bro!

    If he’d just returned her weed, this wouldn’t have become a disturbance. A taser, a billyclub, while a kid is within arm’s distance?

    “If he’d just returned her weed…”

    I think this maybe my favorite comment of all time!
