    "PIERRE, S.D.

    — The police chief here is defending an officer's use of an electroshock weapon against an 8-year-old girl threatening to harm herself.



    Parents of the child, who was with a babysitter at the time, want the officer disciplined for using excessive force.



    Police Chief Bob Grandpre said three officers responded Friday night to a report of a suicidal 8-year-old girl who had stabbed herself in the leg.

    She was holding a 4½-inch knife to her chest when officers arrived, and she refused to put it down."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.
