    So do you think the Officer was right or wrong to use his Tazer on this teen?

    My view you break the law or the rules be prepared to pay the price, I have no issue with the officer tazing him, he wasn’t co-operating or following an officers instructions so getting zapped is almost a guaratee! They do that more often with idiots running on the field I bet it would dramatically reduce the number of times it happens

    If the kid wanted attention, he sure got it. Hope he doesnt try to turn it into a lawsuit.

    Let him try… he was resisting arrest and not following the legitimate directions from a L.E.O.

    On second thought… I hope he doesnt as it will suck up money that should be used for something else for a Judge to get to point where he tells the kid to pound sand!

    Seems a bit excessive for a harmless prank. A night in the big house would’ve been enough IMO. I’ll bet my first born that there’ll be a lawsuit coming down the pike.

    To be honest, I’m not sure what to think about this incident. We’ve had a few people killed up here after being tasered by the police. The taser certainly has a purpose in law enforcement……I’m just not sure if this incident warranted it. [=}=]

    I’m all for it. Idiots today think it’s the police officers role to run and catch them, or wrestle them into submission.

    Back when I was growing up we followed police orders, night sticks and black jacks were liberally used when you didn’t.

    Thousands of people have paid big bucks to see the game, not some idion running around. I think the 9mm would have been the better choice. That way you don’t have to worry about him screwing up another game.
    And OH ya, I do not even like base ball. It just is not right.
    Most likly another one of those kids brought up after the ban on parrents spanking there kids. #-o :whistle :whistle

    Honestly, it seems a bit lame to me. How many times have we seen an individual run onto a baseball field? It’s just not that big of a deal, IMO.

    That said, the kid brought it on himself, and it was lethal force and shouldn’t be any long-term detriment, so I certainly don’t think there should be any disciplinary action for the officer, or a lawsuit allowed to be filed against the people involved.

    Not to be argumentative, but we know that some people have died from being tasered. So, with respect, I would ask you guys who support the tasering of this kid……would you think differently if it had killed him? As I said, I’m not trying to start a fight. I think it is an honest question.

    Wouldn’t change my opinion. The kid could die by hitting his head while being tackled. Amnesty International, the primary group raising concerns about Tasers, has even admitted that the few hundred deaths ‘attributed’ to taser use in the last 10 years or so are not all directly attributed to the use of the taser.

    Bottom line is… you do stupid stuff, you create unnecessary risk[/i:3ncamad1]. [-X
