Crime & Punishment - Schoolyard Edition

There have been several news accounts lately of a new trend in US law enforcement.   Police officers arresting juveniles on criminal charges for typical childish schoolyard misbehaviour including swearing, wearing inappropriate clothes or even being late for school.   Now The Guardian has released video of what this actually looks like.   A 14-year old girl in Allentown, Pennsylvania is being arrested by a cop for swearing.   She raises her arms in surrender but the cop tasers her in the groin anyway.
