I heard that Gameboys were addictive …
According to a report filed in Wayne County Family Court by Lincoln Park Police Sgt. Charles Kaminski of the youth bureau, the boy was sent to the assistant principal’s office because he refused to stop playing his Game Boy when the teacher told him to stop.
Once in the office, the boy refused to surrender the Game Boy to assistant principal Larry Phillips, who promised to return it to him after school.
When two uniformed officers arrived, the boy was still fighting and one of the officers pulled out a Taser gun and attached the weapon to the boy’s clothing. The gun’s electric current, which officials said is nonlethal, is designed so suspects lose control of their muscles.
Being tased “stopped him for a moment and then he started fighting again,” the police report said.
The officer warned the boy again to stop fighting and to give up the Game Boy. The boy said no, resumed fighting and was stung again by the Taser gun.
… but this is just ridiculous. What happened to the good old days when the police would’ve bludgeoned the kid? These youth need to be taught to respect the authori-tah!
