Woman Offers Man Baby As Taser Shield

A Missouri woman offered a man her 1-year old child for use as a taser shield when he was being confronted by cops. Now that's solid parenting.

Officers were at an apartment checking on an assault claim made by the woman when a man confronted them, making threats. One of the officers displayed a Taser as the man approached.


Police said the mother offered her child to the man, placing the toddler in the Taser's path. The man, 22, faces two counts of resisting arrest. The woman, 20, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and interfering with an arrest. She was arrested Tuesday night and placed at the Marion County jail on a 24-hour hold.

Wow, just....wow. Thank God tasers weren't so prevalent when I was a kid or my parents would have probably put an ad in the newspaper. I can see it now:

FOR SALE: One child, male. Large head, cries a lot. Would make a great taser shield.

Thanks to Noah, who knows only teenagers should be used for blocking tasers. Also, lasers. PEW PEW!

    That's just a picture of George W. Bush holding a crying baby, handed to him. It started crying because it didn't like him. And George looks shocked because the baby started crying when he held it. Not some "man" was using a woman's baby to protect him from taser barbs. I didn't believe this for one second.

  • DUH

    It wasn't supposed to be an actual picture...just an example. Also it was real, ever heard of the news? -.-
