Teschner says deputies were justified in their use of force. The deputies say the youth threatened them with a pipe and a stick, and threw a piece of wood at them.
Tasering a child who is less than half your size is the equivalent of aggravated child abuse. Only a coward would resort to such measures.

Ok, I have it.
Here is how situations with "out of control" kids should be handled by police.
Don't use a tazer on the child when you arrive on scene. Get there, check out the situation, if the child really is "uncontrollable", just let him be for a moment, walk over to the parents and use the Tazer on them, the whole time telling them, "get your children in line", "grow up and be adults and discipline your kids". "If you would, then we wouldn't have to be here using this dangerous tool on your child, donig your job for you."
