An Alaskan police officer is under investigation after he allegedly shocked an 11-year-old boy with either a taser or stun gun.
According to Reuters, the boy reportedly asked the public safety officer about the device, and was shocked on possibly the arm or wrist after his mother revealed to a newspaper that he had asked to be to see what it felt like.
The incident reportedly took place back in December.
A spokeswoman for the department said that troopers are currently investigating to see if there was a crime that was committed, or if it is an “administrative matter for the tribal government.”
The public safety officer is part of a department that patrols the community of Kake, who are not sworn officers, but do have police training.
A new legislation was passed last year, which will allow the officers to carry firearms while they are on duty in the near future.
What do you think of the officer’s decision to go forward with tasing the boy?
