Officer Accidently Hits Boy With Taser (Video)
WFTV 9 Orlando ^ | June 2, 2010

Posted on 06/02/2010 7:06:46 AM PDT by greatdefender

SANFORD, Fla. -- A 7-year-old Sanford boy was hit by a taser prong while police tried to arrest his uncle Tuesday, according to Sanford police.

A street crimes officer was chasing Reginald Hadley, who was wanted on several warrants. Hadley ran up to his sister, Antonette Jones’ house where she was sitting with her baby and 7-year-old son, Trenton.

Police said the officer shot the taser at Hadley, but one prong hit Trenton in the chest.

"He was terrified! Started screaming, ‘Ah ah ah ah!’ I thought he was getting shocked," Jones said. "Ya'll tased my baby, what the hell?"

Sanford police said since only one prong hit the child he didn't get a shock from the taser.

The boy was taken by ambulance to the hospital to be checked out.

The officer, who is a four-year veteran of the force, will remain on regular duty during an internal investigation.

His name was not released.

If relatives didn’t harbor criminals none of this would happen. Of course if thugs behaved properly none of this would happen.

Ask the people Hadley victimized if they feel sorry for him or his family.

Scum bag uncle was using the boy, the baby, and their mama as a shield and it probably wasn’t the first time with this career criminal.

“Ask the people Hadley victimized if they feel sorry for him or his family.”

Sure, don’t stop at tazing the boy. Shoot the bugger just for being related to the suspect. He has the same tainted blood ya know

Have you taken many bribes lately? Lied in court lately? Just wondering since you’ve admitted to being corrupt.

Absolutely and I’d bet the cop did not intend to hit the boy. My comment was directed at the poster who was blaming the boy for what happened.

Sorry the kid got hit but better a mis-placed taser prong than a stray 9mm round. It could have been worse.

Oh good lord. Yes, I give out PBA cards to family and friends. Hang me! Haha. You're hatred of all things cop is bordering on legendary...and psychotic.

Make no mistake, Hadley put his nephew in the crosshairs. The fact that the kid got shot with a dart was a bad accident. But there was no shock and all the darts do is break the skin and bleed a little bit.

But, of course you failed to answer my question about the real victims here. No surprise.

No just corrupt cops like you.

“But, of course you failed to answer my question about the real victims here. No surprise.”

You didn’t ask any questions, just spewing hatred as usual. Always blaming the children for what happens.

Hmm, that's weird. Because I didn't blame the kid. He had no choice to harbor his criminal uncle. Unless you think a 7 year-old could have a say in that sort of thing.

My point was that Hadley's victims probably don't care about Hadley or his family.

Unlike the people you harass on the street and plant evidence on I can tell you to take a hike. You only want to start an argument and blame victims.

No, blame the criminals. You know, personal responsibility and the like.

Oh wait, you worship criminals.

If you listen to the video, the kid was not tazed. He only got hit by a prong.

‘No, blame the criminals. You know, personal responsibility and the like.”

Thats novel concept and was my original point to the people blaming the child for being in the family.

“Oh wait, you worship criminals.”

Nope, try again. Criminals stink whether they wear a badge or not.

Dear driftdriver,

The “REAL” victims are those people the thug uncle took advantage of in collecting his “several warrants.” Then of course, those warrants MIGHT all be phonies. You know...something the EEEEVIL cops dreamed up just so they could tase a seven year old kid!! Ya gotta watch out for those cops, don’t ya know. Pretty shifty types. By the way driftdriver, what sort of medications ARE you taking to create that universe you live in. Anything you got from our Present-in Chief?

Or you can read a story. None of which explains why people are blaming the child for what occurred.

So you’re ok with collateral damage if it gets the suspect. Good to know.

Bunch of thugs on FR these days

Do you know what the arrest warrant are for? Is it murder, rape, thieft? Or is it drug possesion, DWI failure to appear? If you have info please share it. This article does not have enough info.

I used to think he was a skeptic. Now I can see it's much worse.

He thinks that because I accept PBA cards from my union and give them to my family, I am corrupt and therefore I plant evidence and perjure myself with regularity. As if that would be worth my pension/benefits!

It's sad to see, but in his eyes, the cops can literally do no right. I even ping him to positive cops stories (not that they're posted around here all that often) but he refuses to take off his blinders.

I read the same article you did. As a cop for seven years, I can tell you this:

A street crime unit does not chase after guys wanted for weed possession or DWI. They go after the big fish.

"Ya'll tased my baby, what the hell?"

That has cult classic all over it, like "Don't taze me, bro", or Rodney King's "Can't we all just get along?"

Support our law enforcement officers!

They are on the front line of the most difficult conflict short of full combat operations. At times it is hard to even see the distinction. Could some of our fellow posters at least wait for the internal affairs investigation before assuming the worst of our brave and professional men and women who have undertaken to serve and protect our society?

Thanks for your even and sensible comment, ladyjane.

“I suspect that you have a different view?”

I suspect most of America has a different view including those with the facts. Many jobs are more dangerous than being a cop.

“Wow. I don’t really care. Go away.”

We know that which is why we are outraged at the continued militarization of the civilian law enforcement and continued abuse of force. Oh by the way, we are your boss so listen up or find another job.

You really do assume a lot. And in this case, you’ve struck out. The method you use to “argue” your point is the same used by trolls since the discovery of the internet forum.

You are a troll. Right? And law enforcement is the subject that has in real life given you a chip on your shoulder. It’s the only way to explain this continued diatribe you have against other posters on this subject, not to mention the technique used to draw out the conflict by putting other posters on the defensive by flame-throwing outrageous remarks attacking them personally even when you’ve abandoned to support any legitimate, balanced or cohesive point of view that you previously held.

Attacking third party posters is a tactic to continue your fun by unsuspectingly drawing them into a direct reply. Hence, more troll-fun. Knowing that commenting to a previous poster favorably on this subject is the bait that would send you into a tizzy, I did, you did, and the hook was set. Allow me now to take the hook out, releasing you back into the concealment of the forum stream. Marked by the tag of pwnage.

Having a mild case of resentment towards authority myself I have to admire your efforts a bit.

Try the pit-bull threads they are fun also. Bye now, troll.
