    Police use Taser to subdue man stealing food from salad bar at Chuck-E-Cheese

    Seriously.

    Man "Tased" in Chuck E. Cheese Salad Bar Dispute
    LAST UPDATE: 3/1/2005 12:44:09 PM


    AURORA, Colo. - Police found themselves in the crosshairs of public criticism after officers used a Taser stun gun to subdue a man accused of pilfering from a salad bar at a Chuck E. Cheese's pizzeria packed with families and young children.

    "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."

    Police responded to Chuck E. Cheese's after a manager complained that a patron had refused to show proof that he had paid for food. Police spokesman Larry Martinez said restaurant employees confronted the man, Danon Gale, 29, after they saw him "loading" his plate with salad.

    The real tragedy here is that Chuck E has one of the worst salad bars on the planet. All that effort to steal lousy salad.

    "Drop that cherry tomato NOW!"

    "But it's spoiled! I was just taking it up to show the manager."

    "I warned you!"

    Bzzzt! <thud>

    Are they sure they tazed a man and not a gigantic mouse in a man suit?

    How low have you sunk when you're tasered for stealing salad from Chuck E. Cheese?

    Yeah, but it'll get your name in the papers...

    If you're familiar with the standup act of comedian Rodney Carrington, you know that he was once expelled from Chuck-E's.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    This sounds like a Ron White stand-up routine.

    The best thing they ever did at Chuck E. Cheese was to start selling beer.

    However, one time after consuming a few 24 oz. brews, I got a little too enthusiastic on Whack-a-Mole and broke the stick.

    No the best thing they ever did was close their store down the road from me. Now I don't have to take the little brats, I mean angels, there anymore.

    This probably sounds much worse than it really was...

    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.

    RFA, what could have made the article better for you exactly? The reporter has a quote from a bystander, from the police spokesman, and she includes the original complaint from the restaurant. So, let me know, what would you have written? "Police Save the Day at Chuck E. Cheese, Nothing to See Here"?

    Re: Police use Taser to subdue man stealing food from salad bar at Chuck-E-Cheese

    * I have read no comments from the police.
    * I have not read if salad-man was confrontational with the officers.
    * If you click on the link, you get a picture next to the story of a police officer holding a taser in an aggressive manner. Not a cop in the story, but there for shock value.

    I get the opinion of one woman who was there. Is she friends with the suspect? I don't know, but I doubt that the shock journalists would care to tell me.

    It reminds of another story that is probably on page 2 here now. About some poor-poor 18-year-old HS Junior (who has double negative problems) getting arrested for nothing more than writing a story about zombies. Then, after some research, I find out that there was a little more to it than what was originally reported. Why? Because the original article took the 18-year-old HS junior's story and ran with it. And "anti-police, anti-government" types run crazy with these half-stories. The zombie arrest story was all over sites that have an obvious anti-government agenda. Google it up, you'll see. No mention of what his sister said about him... just the suspect's story.

    For anyone who believes this article tells the whole story, someone has some cheap swampland to sell ya. But who cares about the whole story? Sometimes fairness does not sell rags or give the right appearance for the agenda of some.
