    He could have handled it better. The woman had a point, he was very dissrespectful to a concerned mother..how the hell is he going to treat children acting more wildly than she was? He wont have his job much longer.
    As for the cops..jesus, get more exccessive Florida.

    The title says that she got thased. First of all i think it is great that people film violations of human rights, especially where violations have become a precedure. Torture by electrocution as a punishment, conducted by a person who isn`t even close to being a judge is of course such a violation.

    This video though as i can see only shows a woman getting arrested? Is she tased? I can`t see it...

    Eh, her cause was noble but she did resist the officers. :/ I feel bad for her daughter. If she was being teased before, having her mom publicly tased and arrested can`t be making life any easier.

    @Student Law - that really is the dumbest thing I`ve ever heard. Are you saying that less than lethal is not a violation of a person`s rights? If so why the drat do we even have law officers? If that`s the case then are my rights being violated if I`m taken into custody by someone who hasn`t been trained sufficiently in criminal law or trial? I`m sorry, being tased does nothing to imped on someone`s rights, it`s given the officer choices.

    Not to mess with the op`s perspective, but I`m pretty sure she wasn`t tased. Before and after she went down they were all holding onto her, if she`d been tased I`m pretty sure they would have been too since electricity travels.
    Also, I believe she should have argued with the driver at a different time. During day time, when he is probably about to pick up kids, totally not the time. Continuing to go on with her arguments, instead of going to his boss, also not a great idea.

    @ForSquirel:
    "that really is the dumbest thing I`ve ever heard. Are you saying that less than lethal is not a violation of a person`s rights?"

    No. I`ve never said that. That is an antithetical interpretation of what i said. Only a 5 year old would do that...trolling, eh?

    "If so why the drat do we even have law officers?"

    To protect and serve.

    "If that`s the case then are my rights being violated if I`m taken into custody by someone who hasn`t been trained sufficiently in criminal law or trial?"

    Again, with the antitheses and exagguration. Temporary custody awaiting trial or persecution is not a violation of human rights. Cruel and unusual punishment is.

    "I`m sorry, being tased does nothing to imped on someone`s rights, it`s given the officer choices."

    This is your complete fail. The fact is that it`s given the officers choise to thase you. And that my friend, is the violation of

    The woman had a concern for her child. Enough to warrent her comming down a trying to open a dialogue with the professional adult involved. Obviously to anyone with children, she is going to be emotional.
    The the people who should have been professional, the bus driver and the police, who should be trained to deescalate a situation failed.

    @Captain Kangaroo - sorry to break it to you - but NOT all orders from police are lawful orders. Only the orders that do not themselves break the law are lawful orders, a police officer CANNOT for instance order you to kill someone else.

    How many times do I have to say this in these threads?

    IF YOU RESIST POLICE, AND THEY ARE MAKING A REASONABLE REQUEST (in this case, get off the bus is reasonable, as it is private property. They weren`t telling her to get to the back, just to get off) YOU WILL GET YOUR ASS TAZED AND BOOKED FOR RESISTING. LEARN IT!

    Thank you for posting this, so I can see our officers doing their jobs. They rock.

    This is both sad and frightening. It`s of no surprise to me that the police were overly hostile, and that alone should warrant concern. It`s only a matter of time before the U.S. becomes completely unrecognizable as the freedom loving nation that it once was.

    @jwhalerfan:
    The first time i was in the US, i was baffled by how people would just walk up and talk to me. A lady came up to me and started talking about how unhealty it was to smoke. (I smoked back then).This was in Alabama.
    Europeans can be quite reserved. She was just being nice. In San Francisco some homeless dude would walk up to me and we had a conversation about politics. I`ve been to a lot of places but the communication that can appear spontaniousely between people unaquaintaned in the US is uniqe in the world.

    In the US i have lived in peoples houses and eaten dinner with people, and payed nothing for it. I did this from across the entire continent - from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Americans are some of the nicest people i`ve ever met.

    You have to stop saying things like "eurotrash". Europeans love Americans.

    I`m not sure what`s going on exactly, but if she was trying to confront the bus driver about someone bullying her daughter, good for her. But taking it too far like that and acting like an idiot with the police is just going to make it so much easier for the other kids to tease her daughter.

    Very heroic to stand up for her daughter, but maybe taken too a bit of an extreme. The bus driver could have handled it better but she did insult him. To refuse an officer a simple request is not smart. The whole episode is a bit tragic, imo.

In fact, she could have just reported the incident directly to them, but you can`t blame the officers or the driver because both of them are doing their job.

    WTF? The bus driver reported her as an "irate parent"? IRATE? Really??? That implies so many wrong things which is why, what... a DOZEN cops showed up to apprehend a small woman who has not demonstrated that she is a threat in any way. She seemed very composed for someone who had concerns about her daughter`s treatment. Whether or not she went to the right place to voice her concerns, she approached the driver in a civil manner. The least he could have done was tell her calmly that he had a schedule to keep, and give her a way to contact him or his superiors at the "right" time and place. AND he KNEW he was being recorded. What a jackass. Just based on his behavior alone, I`ll take the daughter`s side.

    There was a term in the Navy, pretty sure it was called escalation of force, which said you could only use equal or lesser force against a threat, i.e., you couldn`t use a 9mm beretta against a guy with a stick, but you also had to use all possible lesser weapons against him. This was within reason as well; you didn`t have to use pepper spray if the threat was shooting at you.

    The cops seem to be tasing people left and right who aren`t compliant. I know cops deal with a lot of poo but I don`t think it would have taken a hostage negotiator to get that woman off the bus. Definitely didn`t need 20 cops yelling at her at the same time.

    My wife is a school bus driver, and this is not the case. If a parent gets Irate, you ask them to leave the bus. If they do not comply, you call the police, period. After this, you are not allowed to talk to the parent.
