    Flat out sick and reprehensible. Should be fired for merely pointing the taser at the child. This dangerous and irresponsible behavior should not be tolerated at all with those hired to serve under the badge.

    I had a part time cop handcuff me and slam me to the ground, and he's lucky I didn't get his ass fired. His entire law enforcement career would've been DOA as it was on camera and 100% unprovoked.

    Most professions that do stupid things like that, are pursued by the victim until they lose their career. Cops unfortunately (among many others), seem to have a certain unwarranted immunity from the consequences of all but the most blatant, heinous acts.

    I wouldn't be disappointed if Junior has his college education paid for as a result of this.

    That's the reason people fail to understand when they get upset about "cop bashing", the blue code of silence keeps many of them safe and free from prosecution. It took 3 racially motivated attacks for an officer in my state to finally be given the boot, and only because civilian recorded him viciously beating a black guy.

    In my hometown there was an officer who was a known coke fiend, and he was given dozens of passes. They only fired him when he finally ran someone over.

    That's the part I can't stand, and it's not even the unions, it's what they do automatically.

    And lest anyone misinterpret such comments about this type of behavior: it's not about "cop" bashing; it's about identifying reprehensible individual behavior for what it is, and calling it such.

    I think this guy should lose his job. It shows gross lack of judgement and that isn't really something you can go to a class and learn.
    Can you imagine him in a situation that called for a cool head and going off like this? He could get another officer killed.
    He's a big liability to the department, not to mention to his co-workers.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Pointed the taser at the kid?

    I guess the 4 rules of safe gun handling don't apply to tasers.

    Police officer tazes 10-year-old for refusing to wash his car

    I'm sorry but that officer needs to be fired. It shows a lack of maturity and poor decision making skills. He should not be allowed to possess a weapon of any kind. Everyone makes a dumb mistake at least once, but his was pretty dumb. His 2nd chance is that he's lucky he doesn't get jail time.

    Can you imagine the mountain of criminal negligence and child endangerment charges you'd be facing right now had it been you that tased this child? Instead, because he's a cop, he gets off with a mere 3 day suspension from work. Deplorable.

    I have always and will continue to support law enforcement, but with this consistent and blatant double standard and special treatment for cops, making them almost unaccountable and immune from their heinous acts, it is easy to understand this growing trend of disdain and contempt for law enforcement these days.

    The reality here is that he most likely will not be fired. Most collective bargaining agreements for government workers (cops) require progressive discipline unless the offender is convicted of a felony. Look at that guy in Florida from the other thread. Each new and different stupid act starts the whole process again. You want to move it up the scale you have to catch him doing something he has already had remedial training for. And this is not just cops, it is road crews, finance, HR, schools.

    Once any government worker is given permanent status and is covered by a collective bargaining agreement they just about have to negligently kill someone while on the clock to just flat out get fired. And sometimes that isn't even enough.

    Well all I know is if the kid now suffers from PTSD from just one taser shot, he better not choose the military as a career.
