    Default Children Tazed at FL Prison

    Goodness...

    Don’t Tase Me, Dad | NBC Connecticut

    Don’t Tase Me, Dad Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day turns into a real shocker

    By GINGER HARRIS

    Updated 2:25 PM EDT, Sat, May 2, 2009

    Who knew taking your kids to work could be such a shocking experience. The children whose parents work at Franklin Correctional Institution in Carrabelle, Florida, that’s who.

    When the unsuspecting children of the institution headed to work at the Panhandle prison with their moms and dads, they had no idea they’d be treated like inmates.

    But that’s exactly what Sgt. Walter Schmidt did when he used a stunning device to zap kids with 50,000 volts of electricity.

    The Sun-Sentinel reports the children fell to the ground, yelling in pain and grabbing at the red burn marks the volts left on their arms.
    One child was even taken to a hospital.

    Schmidt, who worked with the Department of Corrections for 14 years, says he doesn’t see how he was in the wrong, especially considering he asked for parental consent prior to shocking the youths.

    “When they said, ‘sure,” I went ahead and did it, “ he tells the paper. “It wasn’t intended to be malicious, but educational.”

    Seems Schmidt won’t be using his methods to further anyone else’s education. He was fired for the incident.

    That's not good but it is funny.

    What an idiot. I love the "parental consent" excuse. Nice to see the people running our correctional facilities are such bright bulbs. . .

    Why does all this weird crap seem to happen in Florida?

    I don't get why that guy didn't ask the kids first before he tased them. Was it suppose to be a surprise attack?

    "Surprise attack" becomes "heart attack" quickly when massive jolts of electricity are involved. This guy should be brought up on assault charges.

    Give him the chair.

    Just make sure his parents say it's okay first.

    That's a rather boring rationalization for his actions.

    And that raises enough questions for the parents too. Either way, poor children.

    I wonder how he "asked" the parents?

    "Can I show Timmy the tazer?"
    "Sure."
    "Okay, great!"

    Yes, one wonders why he wasn't charged with assault.

    I have been in prison and, yes, people who work in prisons don't tend to be the brightest bulb in the chandelier (or even a functional bulb).

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.
