I just embarrassed for the profession when we have cops who have to taze a 10 year old kid because they're either not big enough or just afraid of them. It doesn't say much about how we've evolved.
It makes me want to puke when I hear some cop whining about officer safety when they're dealing with an unarmed 11 year old girl. I hope to hell they never have kids.

My $0.02 - your mileage may vary...
Florida wouldn't need such a law (and we wouldn't need to taze them) if the little kiddies parents would put a little effort into actually raising the little shits right and disciplining them when they act like asses!
Then again, I'm talking about a state where some people don't even know how to punch a hole in a pre-punched card with a big fricking poker.
Which makes me wonder how they had kids in the first place.....
As for tazing a child - not on my agenda.

and for those that have seen the pics of me I am small, so most people, even kids are bigger than me
oh well, dynamite comes in small packages hee heeIt is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.

As you guys go through your career, you'll see stuff like this bill every so often. A good tool is often lost because of the abuse by a few.
We got cell phones put in our patrol cars. Great idea, until the chief started getting bills for $150K a month for them. What was happening was cops were chatting car to car like a bunch of damn teenagers. They were warned about it repeatedly, but nothing changed. Then you should of heard the pissing and moaning when they were taken out.
It's the same, or will be the same with tazers. They're a great tool to use on someone you can't handle safely any other way. But as in the cell phones, when common sense isn't applied, the public is going to take them away. And then when you face the drug crazed guy who's 6-4, 240, you ain't gonna have it.
We used to be able to use the caratoid hold, a great way to subdue anybody. No matter what drugs you were on, if the blood didn't reach the brain, you went night-night. But it started being used helter skelter and people started dying from it. That was a hell of a tool that will never come back.
It's got nothing to do with how parents raise their kids, etc. It's about using a tool properly and in the correct context.

If you can get your Lt to show you how to do it effectively when he gets back. You can't beat it for taking somebody out. And when they come to, all the fight is gone!

I agree here. Common sense should dictate policy, not legislation.
Hey RDS, I just noticed the pic in you sig. It's a cool picture, very well done.
I had no idea that The Shield was actually a remake of a popular 70's TV show! Sorry, I had to take it."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.
May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

If I acted like that in public (and this was before tazers), the cops were the least of my worries. When my MOM got a hold of me...
And using the tools we're given properly - couldn't agree more!
