The mother of an 8-year-old Native American girl is suing police who maintain that they were justified in using a taser on the child. The family lives in Pierre, South Dakota and belong to the Rosebud Sioux community. Four police officers decided that this young girl who had a small paring knife was "a danger to herself," requiring them to taser her.
