We recently looked into how UK police use Tasers. Our investigation found officers had used a stun gun to shoot a 12-year-old girl. Hundreds of other young children had Tasers pulled on them, including some aged just 11. The data came through Freedom of Information requests, and all the responses from forces can be viewed on our blog here http://ownews.tv/1aQawPS 

We're always interested in hearing from all sides, so we thought we would post this here. We'd be interested in hearing what police officers and members of the public think about how Tasers are being used. Are they too widespread now, and should they be used on young children? Let us know what you think.
