A six-year-old was acting unruly in a principal’s office earlier today, decided to break a picture frame, and threaten to harm himself. Did the principal overpower the boy and then call police? No, the principal called the school guard who was held back by the boy waving a glass shard. Did I mention the kid is six?

Police later arrived, apparently called by staff. Now, there are three adults in the room that can overpower the kid–the principal, the school guard, and a police officer. Do the three adults overpower the kid and take the glass shard? No, they decided to continue to talk the kid down, who was apparently suicidal and had begun cutting himself with the piece of glass. The kid didn’t have a gun, it was just a piece of glass mind you. Since talking didn’t work, the police officer finally shot the kid with a taser gun.

Damn, how many people does it take to discipline a six-year-old? Was his name Damien? Was his head spinning aroung and throwing up green goo? Was he six feet all? No, six years old. This sounds like a ridiculous use of force, even if the kid was holding a sharp object. What do you think?
