"They beat this man in front of all these kids then Tased him in my sister's lap," said witness Felicia Mayo, who was at the establishment with her 7-year-old son. "They had no regard for the effect this would have on the kids. This is Chuck E. Cheese, you know."
Typical of today's shock journalism. I am quite sure, as Ms. Felicia Mayo would have you believe, that the man complied with all police orders and did not put the police in a "funny spot". Unless Chuck E. Cheese has metal detectors, the police do not know if salad-man is carrying a weapon. Ms. Mayo would have you believe that the police came running into the joint with guns drawn and taser ready to shock... knocking little-ones over in the process. It is not the fault of a man thought to be stealing (that is what it is called if he was eating something that he had not paid to eat) or not complying with police orders.
I have never had a problem with the police or a taser. Why? I don't steal and I comply with a police order if given to me. Simple concepts? Sure.
