    Personally, I would have tried talking to the kid. See if there was something he wanted, see if there was some type of deal that could be brokered.

    Now if that failed and the cops then used the pepper spray, I wouldn't have had a problem.
    That story also said that they pepper sprayed only after they couldnt calm the kid down implying that the cops did try to talk him down first

    He was wielding a weapon. They'd have been justified in shooting him and we'd all be better off for it.

    The police showed admirable restraint.

    Both the actual article and several other posters have now mentioned to you that the police attempted to talk to the kid and defuse the situation before spraying him. This was very clear. Please feel free to recant your position now.

    I don't get you people. We want to blame the faculty. We want to blame the parent. We want to find a way where one can be absolved at the expense of the other. How about we think more clearly on this....

    First of all, the faculty is so scared of being sued that they are willing to cater to the youngsters. The parents are too scared of not being liked that they cater to the youngsters. This is the fault of political correctness and the "sparing of the rod & time-out" fury that became so obsessively famous throughout the 1990s. Witness the result. Furthermore, if this generation's young parents are ****, it would be eye opening to also acknowledging that the same young teachers come from the same "time-out" generation.

    So how about we start looking at the pathetic decline in responsibility and integrity in today's America that has absolutely done its best to strangle the living **** out of our education system and parenting.

    But we won't do that will we? We will find a way through the courts to award the parent for her horrible parenting and complete lack of values, reward the child for his horrible behavior, force the police into handcuffs so as to ensure the further degredation of our future generations.

    Oh and don't think this starts at the bottom. We have a government full of fulls that are more than willing to **** a large portion of this nation out of pay checks just to behave much like this 8 year old. So should we even expect any integrity at all below the halls of Washington?

    Way to think small dip ****s.

    Let’s see, assault with a deadly weapon (spitting at the teacher, brandishing the shiv at her, the cops and the other kids), causing property damage and resisting arrest. Any other crimes that I missed?

    So…when is the state prosecuting the mother for her child’s actions? Are the teacher, the school, and/or the parents of the other kids going to sue this bitch's stupid ass? What are Colorado's laws regarding 35th trimester abortions?

    true, they will probably wind up having to shoot him in about 10 years. hopefully before he kills someone.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    This is an excellent video about self defense, and especially how to defend yourself against someone with a pointed stick.

    A quote from that same article

    "It wasn't the first time officers had been called to pacify Aidan, Davis said. They'd been able to talk him down in two other incidents.

    Mandy Elliott said she wished authorities had chosen to talk him down in the latest incident. She also wanted police to get special training in dealing with children. Aidan has since transferred to another school."

    Try harder.

    I guess you missed (or ignored) the multiple posts where people pointed out to you that the officers DID try to talk him down.

    For example, post 244...
