    Hm. He's got a hateful conception of the role of law enforcement, if he truly said that. Though, hard to know what's what with news stories.

    Hurray for unions. Employers can't fire anyone for almost anything once they belong. Next time with this moron, it could be a gun.

    Hooray for the military industrial complex turning police departments into para military outfits with APCs, LRAD cannons, tasers and everything they can.

    I am not going to touch the union issue but if I do not see how someone can not be fired for this. Don't anybody give me any baloney about "more training" should fix the problem. That is an excuse to keep folks on the payroll. The officer was trained as a LEO, trained to carry a tazor, and blatantly disregarded his obligation to care fo the people of his city.

    If he needs more training or a supsension so he can learn the rror of his ways I submit that he is too stupid to wear a badge (and that would include a CC badge!)

    Having been a union rep in a police department I could tell some stories that would make your head explode.

    But really, tasing the kid? What ever happened to pepper spray?

    But it is nice to see that some folks are still nostalgic for the days of Bull Connor and the hats and bats and dogs and fire hoses. Those simpler days when if some nut job went to the top of a tower the police didn't have the means to safely evacuate his kill zone. Yeah, you just had to wait and hope none of his rounds found you. Back when the police had to have local radio stations ask for people with rifles to help them because they didn't have weapons that could reach the gunman. Ahh yes, the good old days of National Guard troops on campus......

    Yeah, who needs that technology stuff anyway?

    A sense of proportion could have been an equally suitable "weapon." Those have definitely gone out of fashion.

    Hard to believe a threat of force would be employed against one child in a group of children who (if as claimed) one person merely disliked the idea of washing a car and voiced that dislike, no matter who it was or the level of force employed.

    I"m not really clear on how tasers function. When the taser is fired the probes are propelled into the "victim". Does the shock begin at once or is there another step to actually start the shock? Can it be started and stopped by the officer?

    Don't get me wrong the officer is a complete tool here. Not only is there no justification for what he did, but he was fiscally irresponsible as well. I think replacement packs for tasers are like $26. You can pepper spray like five bus loads of kindergartners for that price.

    Sorry but I have grandkids that I want to "Taze" and/or neuter! Everytime I drive by a High Schoool, half of the kids need electric shock just to get them out of their zombie state!

    Sorry for the kid, but it a little karma for something in the past! I know he is someone angel!

    Would that be considered potentially great bodily injury? I think I would be hard pressed not to act to protect my child if it was done to them.
