Tasering was decidely excessive (and kinda lazy), but I don't exactly feel bad for the guy. He did something stupid and something stupid happened to him.

Exactly, which is why I don't want to see this doofy-ass running across the field while I eat my $11 brat!

Now . . . excuse me . . . while I watch a bunch of morons dressed up as Italian Sausages run across Miller Park Hell, I should just skip buying the tickets and make the check straight out to Joe Mauer.

I guess the whole tasing thing did more for his popularity than just running onto the field!

Great, now everyone and their mother is going to try to get the cops to pull the taser while they streak across Wrigley.

Why, if they hadn't tasered him, he might still be running around the outfield tonight!

Looking at the start of MrsSpringsteen's video, what really struck me was how fat and slow the security folk are. That guy in the white shirt looks like he was trying to play freeze tag then smelled a fart and pulled up.

I'm opposed to the more frequent use of tasers when they're the easy way out- a common refrain from news reports is where the cops just go "meh he wasn't obeying me". Yeah, so? I would hope that officers have been trained to handle stressful conditions, so seeing them give in when someone's being a combative nuisance doesn't inspire much. Tasers should be a useful option for disabling someone when bullets aren't quite acceptable, but man, a baseball game? Do your fucking job guys and try being in a little better shape.

Aren't we glad the cop is black and the roles aren't reversed so the country doesn't have to endure the Rev Sharpton protests, Phillies boycotts, Olbermann Special Comments, Bruce Springsteen protest songs and a Presidential teachable moment.

Plenty of police officers who do private duty in stadiums and parks are overweight-too many free hot dogs? I agree though, if you can't catch someone out on the field then maybe you shouldn't be out there to do that job. I know, it's a 17 year old but you still have to be able to stop him. How many other guys were chasing him? He'd be a good base stealer.

I heard on the news that someone ran on the field in Philly again last night. So the tasering and making this guy a celebrity is only hurting their cause.

Some more that I stole

I'm wondering which is more likely to cause injury: a taser or someone twice my weight taking me down hard.

Important matters to weigh before deciding to run onto a baseball field.
