Overreaction – Excessive Use of Force

Rivalry Side B | Sports | Baseball

During a Phillies game versus the Cardinals a teenage fan jumped onto the field and led a high speed pursuit across the outfield. A not so chipper cop blasted him with a taser gun; was this justified or an overreaction to juvenile behavior?

I haven't heard this whole entire story but it sounds like the cop overreacted just a little. If the kid was threatening anyone I could see why the cop would have done that. It sounds like he was just being an idiot.

Ummm. These types of morons have been doing this for years, ever since games like this became such venues on television. What did we do before the age of tasers? Oh, I know. We caught them and escorted them off of the field. The use of a taser was just simply put, UNJUSTIFIED, and a lazy use of apprehension. Kids will be kids for god's sake. The cop overreacted and used a force that should have been used as a last resort.
