    Wow! Talk about a ********* response to a non-incident. The “ totally unbiased” headline would lead one to believe the cop actually tazed a sleeping child.


    I have absolutely no problem with what she did.

    When you call the police, you should expect a police style response.

    The wussy teacher and a wussy principal couldn’t get the kid to wake up, so they summon the resource officer. What did they think she was going to do? Go hands-on and beat the kid into waking up? Arrest him for the crime of being a typical ******* teenager?

    To me, it’s pretty obvious that they wanted someone to jerk a knot in his butt, but aren’t allowed to, or are too scared to. So, call the cops.

    When the cop, who knows she no basis whatsoever for any use of actual force, comes up with, what in my mind is a very clever use of a harmless scare tactic, those same educators act all surprised, and throw her under the bus.

    I can hear them now, “We wanted her to DO SOMETHING. Just not that thing she did.”

    “We expected her to intimidate that kid into compliance. Without ACTUALLY intimidating him, we can’t have that. We’re educators!”

    The officer’s only mistake was to not tell the principal “No, this is your problem. When it rises to the level of a criminal offense, then I’ll do something.”

    Headline is extremely misleading and to me this is a non story. She didn't touch anyone with the taser, just used the sound of it.

    I'm disappointed in the police chief's response as well and if she's fired, I wouldn't want to work for that department.

    Send the kid for a medical evaluation and release him to a parent along with the bill.

    Sad that what would have been a creative solution a few years ago is now a disciplinary offense. I hope she prevails. The school officials need to grow a pair and do their job instead of calling for help and then complaining when they don't approve of the methods used.

    Sounds like a real chicken scratch Dept. . But she should have known better because rule #1 in a school is never trust the educators. Only a real snowflake would be afraid to wake up a student and call the cops to do so. I'd have told the teacher "thats your job".

    Maybe pouring aglass of water on the sleeper would have been a better idea.

    Probably not what I would’ve done, but certainly not as bad as what the media is making it out to be.

    This represents my biggest issue with SRO positions. We are not “muscle” for people who do not wish to do their jobs. We are not the “sleep” police, or the people with their feet on the court during a game police, or the fans who won’t sit down police...if they’re violating a law, we will handle it. If it’s a threat to the safety/security of the school we will handle it.


    If one of our SROs truly needs to go hands on, he calls five or six other officers to the school and we clear the room and hall out. They generally quit their tomfoolery after losing their audience.

    My point exactly.

    Her only mistake was doing anything.

    IMO, this is much the same as a weak parent that says to their kid “ if you don’t behave he’s going to arrest you.” Not LEOs job to wake up snot nose kids.

    Sad that she got dragged into nonsense, even worse that she is jammed up over it.

    The school district in Lexington passed a tax increase in response to Parkland that is going to generate a ridiculous amount of revenue. The school system has it's own police force, independent from my department. They plan to hire upwards of 50 additional officers and put at least one officer in every school, including all of the elementary schools.

    I wouldn't do it for less than $100K a year.

    this isn't a LEO issue. Using a taser as an exclamation point ( in a non leo situation) is rather tacky and does nothing to maintain the esteem of the department she works for. Is it a firing offense?,.. of course not. Its a written reprimand issue

    I personally don't have an issue with it but it wasn't a smart choice for the Officer, all things considered.

    Teachers carrying tasers would have prevented this.
