    Phillies fan tasered after running onto field

    Stop or I'll Taze!!

    The inevitable discussion will be whether the use of a Taser was excessive force. I have to admit that I don't see a problem with it.

    Pretty simple. Don't run on the field like an idiot, and you won't get tazed. Simple enough.

    Considering it was a Phillies fan, chances are it was deserved.

    And not excessive force either. I would think the same could be said about Cubs fans.

    On the surface it seems to be a little excessive. It appeared this was a kid just running around like a goofball but I'm not a police/security officer who has to make split second decisions all the time about the intentions of idiots. If it is going to prevent a Tom Gamboa incident then I'm certainly in favor of the taser.
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Most Philly fans could probably use a good tasering, to be perfectly honest.

    If you obey the stadium rules and stay off the field there is a 0% chance of you getting tased.

    Good for the Police. Do not be stupid and you do not get tasered.

    Yeah. You never know when something like that is going to happen. And it may act as a deterrent to other fans who have the same idea. Of course these people are usually drunk/high at the time they make this decision so they aren't showing the best judgement in the first place.

    Fans should not go onto the field and players should not go into the stands. If I were running MLB, I would tell teams if they can't control their fans, they can't sell beer until they can. 99 times out of 100 this is caused by someone who has had too much to drink.

    Taze them before they can throw up on you.
