You couldn’t restrain a little girl officers?

Dejamon Baker suffered wounds to her chest and stomach after police tasered her multiple times while she and her mother were shopping for clothes. Baker’s mother was being arrested for an outstanding warrant related to unpaid traffic tickets. When officers confronted the mother for the arrest, they reported that the woman’s daughter attempted to interfere. That’s when they pulled out the stun gun.

“This one goes in my chest,” the girl explained. “It was stuck in there so she had to keep on pulling trying to pull it out. I had fell on the floor and I couldn’t control myself I just kept on shaking and stuff.”

St. Louis police were unapologetic for the incident.
