Which is a true summary from the linked article?

A: A 10 year old who had booby-trapped his daycare with Claymore mines and was heavily armed with black-market, Russian firearms threatened to unleash "hell on Earth" in the sleepy burgh of Martinsville, Indiana, forcing officers to use a Taser on him.

B: A drunk and belligerent 10 year old suspected in the rape of two women was Tasered after refusing officers orders to drop a knife he was wielding.

C: A 10 year old boy who refused officers instructions to chillax was Tasered.

I'm not in law enforcement (I'd get fired the first week!), but could someone who knows, tell me if burly police officer can't just treat this 10 year old like a spoiled dog, put him on the ground, and hold him, firmly, and not to comfortably, until he says, "uncle?" Then, yank him up and start talking. Repeat as necessary. In other words, the alpha roll done on a human.

What is up with all the Tasering that goes on now??? Before anyone jumps me, I fully believe Tasers are a wonderful thing for violent, wackos, armed wackos, psychotics, etc....

Officer safety my ass. Tasers have made cops lazy. Although, for christ sake, lay that little # over your knee and spank the # out of him. If that would have happened more before the fact, the little brat probably wouldn't need police to be called anyway.

I was hoping this was another April 1 joke...I have to say this infuriates me..

I know officers have a tough job...But to take out your anger and fury on a child...They really are beginning to snap...I cant even imagine what a kid could do or say to a grown man thats is trained to deal with criminals that would cause him to do such a thing..

He should be charged with attempted murder with a deadly weapon. Seriously to zap a 10 year old. Theres no way of knowing if that would have killed that kid..Those things take down 300 Lbs men that are jacked up on PCP or meth.....

I mean really this is a shame...I dont even know what else to write this is so horrible..

This is absolutly sick, if a fully trained police officer cant control a 10 YEAR OLD then why are they even doing the job in the first place.

These are the people who are supposed to protect us from the evil in the world and keep us safe yet they cant control a 10 year old without weapons?
This is just mind boggling!
Imagine if this was an adult they would probably just shoot them and not think twice from what we keep seeing on the news, these stories are becoming more and more frequent which is very worrying for our safety now (if you felt safe in the first place
)

What if the police officer wasn't burly? What if he was some homosexual fancy lad? Or a lesbo?

I too thought this was off to be another April Fool's post, and I am still in awe of this. I find it difficult to believe that 2 grown adults cannot control a 10 year old child without using their taser.

Let's get real, what the heck is going on with all of these taserings due to poor judgment these past few years? I know LEO's are trained to control the situation, and receive at least some training in hand to hand, but surely at least one of these officers had a longer reach than the 10 year old boy and did not need to resort to a taser.

Were they that afraid of the kid?

OMG!

That has to be the most terrible thing I have ever read.

I almost don't believe it

Knowing what big, fat blobs American children are it was probably warranted. The officers were likely afraid he would try to eat and digest them.

"We need to look at it a lot closer because it's not really made for 10-year-olds,"


Isn't day care a little young for a ten year old? Weird.

When I was young I went to a summer camp for kids with disabilities, (mainly because I had several light ones myself). There were a lot of different cases but I have seen some of them throw extraordinary tantrums there. Still, I wouldn't have used a taser on any of them.

It sounds like this kid being in day care at 10 years old says that he has developmental issues. The parents can't trust him to be in the house alone and he has acted up before. So for one why did the daycare center take him back. It's starting to dawn on me that we have alot of individuals adults and children that are mentally and emotionally problemed. For the cops to use the stun gun on a 10 year old shows the lack of policing and the lack of caring for the individual who is a child.

Its not uncommon for 10 year oldsto be at daycare. There are before and after schoolcare services. It may well have been the child of a parent picking up younger siblings.
Either way, I bet that kid got the crap fried out of him and a really good reason to dislike police in the future!

Also you gotta understand even a 10 year old can be dangerous to your health.... my 3 year old doesn't mind giving me a whooping when he feels the need...

You should calmly place your 3 year old in a chair, gently strap him in and then pulse-shock him with 10,000 volts. Once he's recovered from the first pulse-shock you should quietly explain to him what he did wrong and then electrocute him a second time. He will behave soon.

There are also other pain mechanisms that have been refined and can be employed such as inserting a needle into the fingernail bed or applying blunt force trauma to the abdomen. Both produce similar results in terms of behavior compliance and modification.

Excellent point and vividly described. I believe though that if an officer of the law is not strong enough to corrall a ten year old, they maybe should be doing a different variation of the job, like paperwork.

Although this is obviously a serious topic and another chapter in a long line of tragically pathetic stories, that was hilarious.

What I really don't appreciate is the endemic regime of censorship that occurs here on ATS. Unless you make a post that is just blatantly obvious and hitting people over the head with its absolute directness it gets deleted with a form notice and any attempt to inquire as to why it was deleted gets deleted or ignored. There is room for neither subtlety or satire, both of which are the foundations of free speech.

Thanks for the laugh. That was clever!

I can't believe adults do not know how to handle an unruly child.

And where is CPS or the law in this case...

It qualifies as injury to a child does it not....

Any officer on the site care to talk over this one. I would love to hear your input.

If you can not deal with a ten year old, unarmed I believe perhaps a different vocation is in line for you...

If the parent used a stun gun on the child it would be seen as a new level of child abuse but since its a police officer they will just get a warning if even they get one at all.

Police officers know this and are using it to their full advantage when they cant be bothered to control a child, laziness and heartlessness thats all this is
