Woman Uses Taser To Help Officer In Distress

Tuesday, January 27, 2009 4 comments

Tanisha Cross said she was headed to Wal-Mart in Lithonia, Georgia with her mother when she noticed a DeKalb County police officer being attacked by a suspect. “I just told my mom pull over, … let’s try to help,” said Cross. The 20-year-old mother, who received the stun gun as a Christmas gift from her husband, said she kept it in a diaper bag.

Cross said while others gathered to watch, she sprung into action. "I went straight for my kid’s diaper bag and I got it and asked it if he [officer] wanted me to do it and he said, 'Yea,'" said Cross. The officer had a hard time defending himself because the attacker had taken the officer's radio and managed to rub pepper spray in the officer's face and eyes. Cross doesn’t consider herself a hero. "I’m just a bystander trying to help do the right thing," said Cross.

    Did you see this on the news, or on that TV show that has hero civilians?

    I just saw on TV last night that there was a show, and I forget the name, that has regular civilians doing stuff like this.

    The show last night showed a young kid, maybe 8-12, pulling a woman off his dad. She and another guy were fighting the child's father, the woman using a club.

    There was a case like this in Manassas, Virginia. A PWC cop was getting attacked outside a hospital and a father ran up behind the thug and drop kicked him into the curb.
