    Exactly what I'm wondering. I'm trying to figure out why he wasn't on admin leave until the termination caught up to him.

    A civilian who tazers a 10 year old accidentally, while intentionally pointing it right at him and acting like he's going to tazer the child, we go to jail. Case closed. It would go before a judge, blah, blah, blah.

    What's the hold up here. Like usual, cops get protection from criminal acts.

    If the article is correct, then this was definitely a joke gone south. Very, very south.

    A Tazer is a non-lethal tool. If that LEO had pulled out his mace instead, and accidently maced the kid, same ending.

    Kid's parents suing? Of course. Policies changed? You bet.

    If the tazer was legally owned by your civilian, the story would NEVER have even made the news. You know that.

    t4terrific, kindly tell us your profession (if employed) so we can begin to tear it apart and make wild off base accusations.

    I'd venture that he is part of the 47% who pay no taxes, mooch off of the work of others, and complain that his narcissistic fantasies aren't catered to by society.

    Here in KY, and many other states, that wouldn't be a crime, so nobody would go to jail

    Like usual, lefty nuts have to make up an anti-police whine for every thread.

    If you want to post legal conclusions, learn some law or at least support it with a link to a relevant statute.

    I don't know LEO rights (if any) when it comes to cases like this. Therefore I cannot comment.
    I DO know that the intentional pointing of a less lethal weapon at a child, and the resultant ND and harm to a child, will get VERY expensive for the taxpayers and/or the officer himself.

    Officer in this case needs to be fired, extremely poor judgement Probably hired due to relaxed standards that we are all so fond of.
    My opinion is based on the supposition that he did in fact point a live Taser at a non threat in a non training scenario.

    This display is about as stupid as it gets my guns and taser stay holstere.

    Policy? We should not need a policy to tell us not to point a live Taser at a Kid while dicking around at a career day.

    He obviously did something to get suspended for 3 days without pay. But I'm guessing it's not exactly what's in the lawsuit. Since he's already been handed his punishment, the city will just pay it out and be done with it.

    t4, you have no idea what you're talking about. Let's just leave it at that.
