The police did nothing wrong, if the Phillies have a problem then let them hire their own security. It makes me sick that someone does something stupid like that then somehow becomes a victim .
If you ran from the cops on the street you would get tased too, so whats the difference running from a cop at a baseball park? I think there is more risk of injury from tackling the kid to the ground. Just because 1 in 5,000 people might have a problem from being tased doesn't mean it was excessive. I don't have a problem with cops using tasers since if they carry them they have had tasers used on them during their training, so they know full well what they are doing to the person when they fire it.
For those who said its wrong to tase a 17 year old kid..... he wasn't wearing a sign that stated his age, if you're grown up enough to run around on the field you're old enough to deal with the consequences. How does the cop know if he has a knife or any other weapon for that matter, why take the chance?
