“It wasn’t intended to be malicious, but educational,” said 37-year-old prison officer Walter Schmidt, who was among those who were fired over the incident. “The big shock came when I got fired.”

Of course I'm joking. The officials showed terrible judgment. They also apparently violated policy/proceedure. Obviously, though, there was something systemic here that is being covered up. How do 43 kids at different facilities all get tasered/peppered during official presentations. Someone sanctioned it, I'm betting and has done a crapload of CYA.

“None of the children in any of the incidents required medical attention or was notably harmed, McNeil said. He said the children, who ranged in age from 5 to 17, were all children of prison officials.”

“The jolt sent at least two of them sprawling to the floor, crying out in pain and clutching at agonizing burns on their arms. One child ended up in hospital,”


Are hospitals now providing more than just medical care or something?
