    No disrespect towards cops but if two grown cops cannot take down a little 8 year old without using pepper spray? They do not deserve the badge. Hell even I could take down an 8 year old without having to use pepper spray and without having to break limbs or anything else.

    A lot of things were in their power to do, but the goal was to not harm the child in the process.

    You're basically arguing that unless cops are going to use excessive force, they shouldn't be cops.

    In the escalation of force, pepper-spray is less force than open-hand techniques.

    Did you take into consideration that the kid had a weapon in his hand and stated he had intentions of using it?

    What would have happened if he had stabbed the cop while the cop was trying to physically subdue him?

    The kid would have been charged with assault on an officer and that would have followed him his whole life.

    How can you say the cops did not do the right thing here for their own safety and to protect the child from further trouble?

    Kali's trying to say the cops should have shown up with a swat team and shot the kid on site.

    Pepper Spray is harmful. What was your point again? Two grown cops should be able to take down an 8 year old kid pretty easy without having to do much of anything. Hell I am pretty sure I could do it with my words. Of course I do not suck like these two cops did.

    Nope. I am saying it is a sad day when two cops cannot do the job of getting a little 8 year old kid under control. Honestly how much they must suck. lol

    Kali, it is very likely they were just following department policy. These days, PD's do not want cops engaging in physical subdual of armed subjects. The kid had a stabbing implement. Odds are dep't policy said "subdue with OC or taser, do not engage HTH". The reason PD's have these policies is that studies have shown a reduction in injuries and deaths to both officers and perps because of using OC and tasers. If they had acted otherwise, they might have been written up and disciplined for flouting dept policy.

    So it is probably the police chief, or maybe the city/county council you actually need to talk to.

    But if its more fun to keep calling the cops names, by all means... I wonder what people would be saying if they'd dicked around until the kid actually stabbed someone.

    Re: Misbehaving Boy, 8, Pepper Sprayed By Police

    I'm not going to single anyone specific out, because after reading through this thread and the replies to my last post it is painfully obvious that there are a lot of you who think that this is OK. If you read this story and felt anything other than nausea then you are wrong, period. We're talking about police officers pepper spraying a child! There's no excuse for that in a civilised society. What's truly disturbing about this, beside the fact that many of you are OK with this being done to a child, is the number of alleged "adults" who were involved in this decision chain. Every single one of them needs to be barred from working with children, and in the case of the police officers barred from working with the public in general. There's a special place in Hell reserved for all of you who think that it's OK for adults to pepper spray a child. Let the flaming begin again, because at this point you can say whatever you want to but the source ain't worth jack.

    what is more harmful? Pepper spray, or a broken arm?
