10 YEAR OLD BOY ZAPPED BY TASER....IN INDIANA

A 10 year old boy (THAT'S RIGHT), in a day care, apparently was accused of being "unruly" and 2 Indiana policemen have been suspended due to the tasing of the youngster.  One slapped the boy, and the other tased him. 

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TASING???  In the past, I have made several posts concerning tasing.  A taser is a powerful weapon.  Usually used to subdue "grownups" or "dogs".  But kids?

Oh ---I can see how that can happen --although I do not condone it at all. I was the Director of a Vacation Bible School one time, and this little boy (about 10) was totally out-of-control... I was almost afraid of him. We called his parents ---and therein lies the problem---NO discipline at home! He was HORRIBLE. I've never encountered a child like that. But--these days it is actually worse since parents don't seem to know how to 'parent'.....

How are you Deb????? Easter Blessings to you and yours.
Hugs,
Betsy
