    Well, if this police officer isn't charged with anything then it's ipso-facto legal.

    Yeah, that's a fair argument. Although this case involves an 11-year-old, not a 7-year-old. So the way CG stated it, it seemed as though he was referring to a specific law/statute, which is why I asked. Made me curious.
    Thanks from BigLeRoy and Ian Jeffrey

    I thought he was, too. Made it sound like it was legal to use a taser on a 7-year-old, but NOT on a 6-year-old. Shrug.

    I cant speak for everywhere of course, but in my town the chief of police prefers ex military. He likes it that they have passed firearm training and such and typically are in good physical shape and meet that criteria. He absolutely hates getting a 20 something who cant pass a physical and never has shot a gun. I can imagine there are others like that out there.

    Illogical on the part of your policed chief. Any fool can be taught how to handle basic side-arms to the extent needed by the average city cop within just a few weeks. Physical condition? That to is simple enough. The real value of a military veteran is that the person has self discipline, is used to obeying commands and functioning within and dealing with a rather strict chain of command structure and has experienced with functioning and keeping on doing his/her jobs under conditions of extreme stress.
