    I know absolutely nothing about police work, but I'm willing to bet that was the most efficient method to prevent him from hurting himself while causing the least physical harm or risk of harm. Not sure that I can say the same for the emotional trauma aspect though.

    Hmmmm the taser is a non-lethal method of getting the situation under control. They aren't gonna rush him because he might hurt himself worse or hurt them and if they let him continue he would have kept cutting himself.

    What would you have done?

    There's already some emotional trauma to that child or he wouldn't have been cutting himself. The taser hurts like hell.....but when it's over it's over. I'd rather be tasered again than pepper sprayed.

    I was thinking of it more in terms of what a human is inherently and innately able to 'handle'. I mean, the notion of being physically restrained is something that I would argue every human body (aside from the extreme examples) is designed to handle and every human mind (again, aside from the extreme) is developed to assimilate at almost an instinctual level whether or not it's happened to someone before or not. A taser shock is not.

    That being said, however, if you have to perform some quick moral calculus, I'd rather myself or my kid (assuming I'm ever foolish enough to get married and have one) be tasered and carry from the experience X physical trauma and X+1 emotional trauma with very little risk of unforeseen injury than X+1 physical trauma and X emotional trauma but a very elevated risk of further physical injury during the more psychologically familiar physical restraint.

    They can control the time that the taser runs too. It has a safety so hopefully they hit the safety within a second or two. 5 seconds is a LONG **** time....which is the standard "ride". Each additional dose is 5 seconds.
