    Then attempting to pass it off as fact or truth is dishonest and the only thing it makes me consider is not reading their articles again.

    There'd almost certainly be some dead cops.

    Now this is funny.

    You can have good intentions and not be right.

    However, there was an incident about 6-8 months ago of a police officer in Arizona who was assigned to an elementary as an SRO. For one reason or another, (I think the kid was back talking and he was trying to scare him) the officer pulled out his taser and pointed at the kid. He then negligently discharged the weapon and tased the young boy. Unlike the "incident"in the OP post, this one was reported on and verified by several different sources. The officer was fired but I don't believe he was charged.
    Could you be thinking of Tucumcari, New Mexico?

When one of them said he didn't want to, he pulled out his taser and said "Let me show you what happens to kids that don't listen to the police", before negligently discharging the weapon and tasting the 10yr old boy.

    Interestingly enough, in the article I posted it references another article in which the San Diego police accidentally "tased" a three year old girl while chasing a parole violator through a shopping mall. Luckily the girl was not shocked because she was only hit by one barb. While not as blatant as pointing the weapon directly at a child, discharging a taser at moving target inside a shopping mall filled with families and young children for something as minor as a PV, is completely irresponsible and reckless.

    This was in response to the post a few threads down about why people hate cops. Notice I did not comment about tazing kids under the article? There is truth behind the lies though, think about the recent stories of overbearing cops, above the law "public servants" etc. What is scary is that in todays society this satire is not immediately recognized as one.
    Then why was the second post a debunking of the story?? With the logic you give about how recognizable this was at being untrue, we should be going on and on about the inhumanity of these cops for at least several more pages of threads.

    Because the second post was not by me. Should have been more clear that this was satire in the initial post though.
