Most likely because they know that they can not be tazed back. He was either smiling on the inside because he got to deploy or was immediately horrified he deployed. Either way he was negligent and should be charged with aggravated assault and endangering the life a child.
I can imagine that if I were the father of this boy that I would need some physical restraint. My attention would require the diversion and directing that attention at bringing down those that brought preventable harm by any means other than physical would be more appropriate and effective.
Tasers are deadly. Their deployment in these types of situations is cowardly. These are not the tools of protection and defense.
This prevalence of imposing submission in this "new" society is sickening.
There is accountability to be claimed here. Who got 'em?
That mother fucker should have been placed under arrest the second it was realized that child wasn't getting up.
If the theaters had any balls at all they would tell the MPAA to go hump a pony. Bringing the police, general audience disruptions, rewards (holy fuck), lawsuits and jail (holy triple pony assault) for something that the theater should be striving for anyway, a pleasant theater experience, is insane, no? Yes. Yes it is.
You guys are such pricks to EVERYONE that could possibly enjoy some entertainment, much less pay for some, that it is utterly astonishing that you continue to exist.
You tap the shit out of theaters and dictate what, where, when and for how long that it costs US 20.00 for a popcorn and a pepsi so they can pay rent. A theater employee could probably even lease a car if they had no other debts. Yeah, they're paid that well, you should probably pinch another 10% points off of THEIR work.
I hate saying this but ... your product deserves to be pillaged with reckless abandon. It needs to be wrested from your absolute control more than you could possibly IMAGINE. (Clearly you have no imaginations so that's no great leap I suppose.)
MPAA/RIAA et al must die and COPYRIGHT, if for no other reason than that, demands change. Now. That should probably be dealt with. It's clear that you don't like how it's being dealt with on the consumer side and the feeling appears to be mostly mutual.
We, the public, who are being savagely assaulted from all quarters, on all sides, by these (pause for effect) people (pause for slightly less effect) are right in the middle of the charge. These poeple, the middle men, whose principals lead the charge in the assault on the principles of democracy, liberty, freedoms, business, free markets, privacy, politics and justice... ladies and gentlemen, I give you Legacy Big Entertainment, Big Movies and Big Music (more pause) The Middle Men! (cheer loudly)
Team NSA! (The entire team. Back in line, DOJ. Cheeky servants.)
TONIGHT! (more pause) We bring to you a depiction of "The Inglorious Battle of Nevermore"! The first conflict in "The Great Battle of Thieves"! TONIGHT! (yet more pause) They fight! (cheer loudly, whistle, bang on things)
They fight! (absolutely no pausing here) To the DEATH! (cheer wildly, faint)
GLADIATORS! (pause solemnly) I SALUTE YOU! (silence, pick up smartphones and enable flashlight app, point smartphones at the sky, pause three seconds, switch smartphone app to video and record the field of battle, cheer wildly and appropriately, spittle a little, share)
I'm not sure I get it. Why is IP/Copyright being negotiated as part of a bundle in some big ass trade agreement. As we've clearly seen there are no trade barriers to media. Like, none, at all. At least not the real kind like oceans, mountains, armies and earth quakes negotiated for moving milk, medicines and mercedes.
I'll tell you what, if I was trying to get my bricks across the water and make some money I sure as fuck wouldn't want to be bundled up with these ass hats.
It's an insidious repertoire. They can't even fucking deliver their own goods so they feel like everyone should latch onto their sinking fucking vessel? Something's seriously wrong with this. Seriously.
