Yet another case of OTT police force for an otherwise benign situation.

Whatever happed to a police officer being helpful and polite?

They are now regarding themselves like crime janitors rather than a pillar of good and justice for the community.

Your ignorance would be astounding if it weren't so commonplace. People like you are the reason why more and more of our liberties are being taken away, facilitated by your complacency or outright support of totalitarian government. That kid likely had the same amount of muscle as any normal 9 year old, just a bunch of extra fat. He posed no danger to a man with the training that cops receive.


And people like you are the reason why we have a generation with no respect for authority, people like you are the reason why we have communists, socialists and other left wing trash occupying and destroying parts of our city, because people like you whinge and moan when the police take legitimate action to restore status quo.

People like you are the reason why London was ransacked by riots last year, because people like you are the ones that made it impossible for the police to use rubber bullets, gas and water cannon.

Do you think that this 9 year old could comprehend what would happen? Was he resisting arrest or resisting going to school? Not once did I see that the boy was under arrest.

Maybe it was chicken nugget day and he was throwing a fit. I don't know, but that is the extent of how most 9 year olds think.

I think it is a complete failure of intelligence and common sense to even think that not going to school, a non violent issue, should be met with violence like he was a carjacker or thief!

YOU however, might have to worry about my 200+ pounds of muscle and my utter disgust with people like you.


Yet you would resort to violence also?

Are you a parent? How would you feel if it was your 9 year old? Yes the kid was breaking the law and being difficult with the officer. And yes use of force was appropriate to detain him, but tazing the kid is just wrong. There is no excuse for it except that the officer made a poor judgement call and now he is being punished as he should be. The use of tazers by law inforcement is out of control.

And I am former military and have both used and been the victim of a tazer. My opinion is that they should only be used in a situation where you would use your lethal firearm. No exceptions.

I am still wondering about a 9 year old weighing 200 lbs. Something not right there.


Who knows, maybe he was truant from school because he was being bullied because of his weight? Regardless, if he is not in school, it should be between him and his parents. Not the state, I don't care what the law says.

Plus, it's hilarious how some of the people who are supporting the police in this case are often the same people whining about how the government needs to stay out of their lives.

Oh, don't get me wrong, violence is necessary some times. Against 9 year olds though? Nope, not unless they have a dangerous weapon. Violence against people who support or condone the violence against children by totalitarian regimes? HELL YES!

IF... being the word to focus here. IF he had attempted to fight or harm someone, the use of the taser could be justified. Just lying on the ground, arms under him - no way. Presuming that is the whole of the story, Poor choice on the part of the cop, in this case.

Whoever said the US was the home of free speech?

"SUPPORT ME OR I'LL USE VIOLENCE AGAINST YOU BECAUSE I'M JUST A JUMPED UP LITTLE ROID MONKEY ON THE NET".

The kid broke the law like an adult, and got an adult punishment. Simples. Don't like it? Tough!

I'm none of those things. What about the opinion of a Conservative/Libertarian Capitalist Marine?

It doesn't make any difference what side of the political spectrum you prefer dude. This cop is a POS. Period. Anyone but an obvious troll can see that.

Exactly. There could be many different reasons for this kid to not want to go to school. On top of his size, add the fact that his father is extremely ill, and whatever other issues any family may have, and you have a kid that may be emotionally distraught and in need.

Whatever happened to hugging and talking to our kids? That may make me sound like a pussy, but I am 6' 4" tall 270lbs and I have no problem hugging, kissing and talking to my kids when I feel they are in need of something as simple as love.

This kid probably just needed someone to love him and listen......ahh screw it.....let's taze the fat bastard!

Problems or no problems, you go to school. If you have a mouth, you can speak to a counciller.

Refuse to go to school = criminal = punishment.

Thankfully, I live in a civilised 1st world nation, where unlike in the 3rd World US, cops don't need tazers.

Ah, so you are from some other country, spewing ignorance. I don't know about your "civilized country", but in the US cops are not allowed to dish out punishment. We have court systems for that....

Anyone who thinks that tasers are non-lethal, should look up how many amps those things produce, and the dangers that they present to certain people such as young children and the obese. A 200lb 9 year old would be in extreme danger of cardiac arrest from such a shock. ONE SOURCE OF MANY

That pig needs to be tried for attempted murder. If you did this to a little kid, you would be in many states.

Anybody who thinks tazers are non lethal should go stick a fork in an outlet, or go grab downed power lines..

Our brain functions off of electronic signals.......how can it not be harmful ? you could kill somebody's signal to their heart or brain....

The law is the law, Follow instructions and do as your told and there will be no pain compliance. I see where you are comming from. You will do well at the Fema Camp. Hell, you might even make trustee.

That thought process is the problem with our system now. There was a time in this country when police were a helpful, concerned, part of our society. There was more to being a cop than a gun, tazer, and over enforcement of trival infraction. Cops could be spoken to and were happy to solve problems without un needed bs.

Seriously, the little fat ass shouldn't have been tasered; I'd probably have stood there dangling the cuffs (that i was unable to put on him) over him, laughing because the little porker would be too afraid to get up off his little sausage arms.
edit on 13-3-2012 by MzMorbid because: I want to have a talk with this kids' parents.


I stared this just because it was absolutely hilarious.

Beyond that, let's hope something constructive comes out of their investigation.
