Police Use Taser On Unruly Child At Day Care Center. Isn’t This Child Abuse?

I frankly did a double-take when I saw the news clip below from an Indiana day care center.  In an age where children are no doubtedly exposed to too much violence, I was shocked that these Indiana Police Officers used their taser on a 10-year-old child at day care center.  Sure, the boy may have been unruly, but doesn’t this seem like excessive force?

As an injury lawyer who works on day care injury cases, I can only hope that this boy makes a full recover from both the physical and psychological trauma he surely must have endured in this matter.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
