    Well, no one would accuse you of that, but attacking a police officer who was reasonably performing his job sure doesn't set a stellar example for Junior does it, especially when Junior was just threatening to stab said officer, but hey, you raise your kids how you see fit and when they're adults, THEN maybe we'll judge you on how you parented them.

    Key word being, "reasonable". IMO, pepper spraying my kid would be un-reasonable.

    I understand that you feel that way, but I just can't seem to get why you think the spray was so harmful to the kid and why you think he would have been better off being forcefully taken down and disarmed.

    I don't mean that in a rude or mocking way, I'm truly curious.

    The Cops had been called a couple of times before when this child monster was out-of-control. Whatever policy was used on the kid before did not work. I think they just wanted the kid to not want to have the Cops called again. Pavlov's dog and all that.

    Pepper Spray by itself has essentially a zero chance of causing any kind of bodily harm lasting more than a few hours. Any interaction physically with the child at least has a chance larger than 1% of potentially causing him some harm. Borken bone, sprained joint, significant bruise, cuts/scrapes...all of which are more long term harm than pepper spray would cause. Some of which would likely open up the cops for potential legal issues more than pepper spray
    It can cause blindness. Are there studies done on the pepper spray used and its affects on children? Is there a lower limit? If a 6 year old is throwing a tantrum, would you say it's best to use chemical agents on the child instead of picking them up? You kinda put numbers in this time, but are they real or did you imagine them?

    That's a good question. Do you have a real answer for it? I don't know if this has been tested on children to see what statistics and possible side effects could be.

    I certainly see your point, but personally, anyone threatening to stab me, regardless of age, is going to be met with a faceful of OC.

    An 8 year old would only be threatening to me with a gun.
    But I'm sure that piece of wood was really sharp. /s The fact that a cop could bicep curl the kid doesn't make him any less dangerous.
