    According to the article on the front page, the metal prongs were removed before use, but still, bad judgement on the Deputies part.
    Moooooooooooo, I'm a goat

      Hey, a week off, WITH pay? I'd say that's GREAT judgment!

      (I'm kidding, I'm kidding...)
      Sure, that badge will get you midgets, but those midgets will get that badge!

        I'm leaning towards this officer being a young guy 22-24 yoa with less than 2 years experience maybe? Probably wasn't the best candidate for a high school career fair...

          Who wants some old fart with a pot belly recruiting kids?

          Nope... you gotta send the kid who looks like (insert favorite sports figure or rap artist) to get their attention..

            Sheriff Ed Holte says Deputy John Ortega has been suspended for one week with pay for Thursday's demonstration. Ortega has been a deputy since August 2008.
            The deputy in question is "Deputy John Ortega" in case you missed it....
            Getting shot hurts. Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you. My personal thoughts is to avoid being shot by any caliber.

                  "But they told me I could do it." What was he thinking. I get asked all the time to Tase people....I want to....but I am not stupid enough to risk a lawsuit.

                      reminds me of the chick I saw the other day who let a kid "hold" her taser

                            Was something actually wrong, or was at least one parent just that worried?. Parents consult doctors all the time over stuff that's generally harmless, because they just don't happen to know: tasting mud pies, eating bees, and having hundred degree fevers, rarely kills anyone.. The reporter should have tried to find out whether the kid had needed hospital treatment, and put whatever answer, yes, no, or no answer given, in the article.

                            After all the threads I've seen here containing YouTube links showing everything from TASER reps demonstrating on civilians, to you all zapping each other, often non-mandatorily, and sometimes not even training connected, I'd have to say I'm not worried.. I think the department would have been smarter to give a statement that TASER demonstrations are common, that TASERs are rarely harmful, that there was definitely minimum risk of danger, etc, etc.. And as far as the kids being minors, and some may have heart problems, they are high schoolers; they are old enough to be away from their parents for hours on end, and to decide whether to play sports or not, be around chemicals or leave the lab, eat potential allergens or abstain, and whether to get zapped with a normally harmless* electrical device or not.

                              So I take it these two would be in some trouble if this scene happened in real life?
