Parents use stun gun to discipline kids

Police in Florida have arrested Joshua Louis, 28, and Roxanne Paduani, 33, on Thursday on charges that they used a stun gun to discipline their children. They were arrested after someone reported them to the Dep of Children and Families (DCF) who then reported them to the Police according to the News-Press reports.

One of the couple's four children told police that their parents used the stun gun on them when they were bad and showed police marks left behind. One of the other children said their Dad always used the stun gun but that even though their mum was never there when it happened, she knew about it.
"They were using it as a tool to deter the children from misbehaving,". "The stun gun inflicted pain compliance on the children and left visible marks on two of the children." Says the Police.

A DCF spokesman said the children have been placed safely with other family members.
