Re: Police use Taser to subdue man stealing food from salad bar at Chuck-E-Cheese
Sorry RFA, but good parenting, bad parenting doesn't ease the effect of a 5 year old kid witnessing an incident like this. It's not as simple as telling your kid the man was wrong and now all is forgotten. A small child witnessing something like that is not a good thing no matter how the parent explains the situation.
Now I'm not saying the guy wasn't wrong. I think he was, even if he DID purchase the salad. If he was that upset he should have taken it outside and resolved it there. Without having seen the incident, it's hard to tell if the force used was necessary, although I have a hard time feeling sorry for the guy if he did what the cops said he did. But explaining a situation to a child is not going to take away the trauma of witnessing such a scene.
