    This officer in no way should have used the taser on this kid. A trained police officer with three years experience who can not handle a 10 year old doesn't need to be a cop. Period. To make things worse the chief doesn't have the integrity to admit he fired the officer for tasering the kid. That is the real reason. If the officer followed policy then he shouldn't be charged with a crime.
