The police here almost never remove the barbs themselves, they always wait for EMT folks to arrive and remove the barbs. A 10-year old boy doesn't have much meat on his chest, so those barbs would have most likely struck the bone and been very painful! The electricity in that part of the body, for such a small person would have affected the muscles in the chest and neck, and caused the blackout, and it could have been much, much worse!

Some departments require the cops to requalify each year with their taser, which requires being tased again. Many cops say the experience is so painful that they decide not to requalify, and they choose to just not carry the taser. If a grown man with a valid need for a taser is scared to have it done to them a second time, then imagine the pain and fear in a 10-year old.

I'm glad their is a lawsuit, and I hope this kid wins enough money to go to a good college, and get a law degree, and work to put cops behind bars for the rest of his life!

I also hope the kid has some thuggish uncle that can visit this cop in a one on one situation and return the favor of pain, fear, and nightmares and make sure he wakes up screaming at night wondering when the boogie man might return, just like the kid.

I remember that incident and also authored a thread on that one as well




The victim was alleged to be a criminal, but it does not justify his treatment, here is the aftermath.

It seems the police in your state are very much out of control.

Stay safe

As a parent, I no longer blindly encourage my child to see law enforcement as a helpful resource when trouble arises. I'm not actively making him fear law enforcement, but I'm not putting in his head that they are there to help either. It kills me that I have to fear for his safety-- not only from the criminals, but from the ones in a uniform too.


Too many stories for my liking of people calling the police only to be brutalized, injured or killed by the very LEOs they sought help from.

Crazy society we've built for ourselves.

I'm still wondering how many more lives will have to be hurt or taken be for something happens to stop this.

I pity the good cops still on the force.

I don't. Unless they are actively seeking to get rid of their "bad" counterparts, they become just as "bad" IMO.

I don't disagree with this either.

But because things aren't changing, I also think it's a reflection of how protected by the apparatus the bad apples are...

That's a tall order for the low guy on the totem pole to take on-- particularly when we are talking about a person's livelihood.

The true failures are the leadership and the public for failing to hold the bad actors accountable.

How can a "good" person stand by and watch all the "bad" and still want to be employed there in the first place and still be considered "good"?

I know if shady things were happening in my work place, I wouldn't/couldn't lower myself to be a part of it or just cover it up. And if I did, I would be considered just as "bad".

That 10 year old just got to learn early on that he was born in a Police State.


There is no way that cop will lose his job. Many others have done far worse and still are collecting pay checks.

Say cop A is a good cop and cop B is the bad. Ok so cop A see cop B beating on someone, and does what he thinks is right and what they're told to do and reports cop B to the chief. Ok now it's in the chief’s hands, so now he could one follow up on the report on cop B, which entails lots of paper work and reviews on everyone’s parts including the chief. Now depending on the chief this could end up very bad for the department if this has been going on for very long. That means a lot of people might end up jobless or in jail including the chief.

Enter option number two, the chief ignores the report and puts cop A on all the crap patrols and work to push him out of his area. Cop A is now left with the option of sticking it out and fighting with the chief and cop B, or leave for another department.

Now Cop A can turn internal affairs on the department, which happens anyways when a report is filed. Internal affairs response depends on what Cop B did and how much media attention it gets. But depending on what kind of dealings the others in the department have been doing. This could put the life of Cop A and his family in danger. So what happens when internal affairs comes in? They’re side stepped and held up as long as possible till another case comes up and they’re pulled off of Cop A’s case and move to another.

This is only a couple of the ways they skin the cat, I’m sure there are plenty more.

Me neither.

In fact, the reason my family has a family password, is not because we are afraid of strangers, but because we are afraid of teachers/cops/extended family/neighbors, etc. My kids will put up a fight before they will leave with anyone, including an authority figure, if that person does not have the family password.

I teach them if they are lost in the mall, or if someone is chasing them, then they should approach a cop or security guard, but in general they are better off avoiding them altogether.

Ouch!

If the allegations in my OP are true, which they appear to be, then I would love to see the accused to suffer the same fate as what is shown in your caption.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Seriously...are people (regardless of what their occupation is) really this low? I mean c'mon man this # is just total stupidity and that's why I have a hard time believing it. Unfortunately it would not surprise me though.

Well, I guess cops can't say that they are totally unloved.

One thing people have to remember about stories like this is that they're the only kind that get reported about. How many times do we honestly hear of the hero officers in the news? The media emphasizes on stories such as this one for more ratings because they know it will make more view the story as apposed to a story of a hero in the force.

Now, do not take that as me somehow justifying what this officer did. If this story is true, what the officer did is absolutely sick and he should feel the full extent of the law.

And why hasn't this cop been fired yet?

*licks blow pop*

The world may never know.

Yeah, I wonder why the NEWS doesn't report a cop doing their job?

To tell the truth this sounds pretty implausible.
I don't doubt that "something" happened. I was able to find an article stating that the officer said his tazer discharged accidentally. However, I'd say the likely story was that the officer was doing something stupid and the result was an overblown incident with the family suing the department.

I don't believe a cop (or anybody else for that matter) would walk up and demand a child "wash his car" and then shoot a ten year old with a tazer gun for refusing. The cop probably did something wrong and/or stupid but this story doesn't sound legit.

Something happened here that isn't being reported.
