    This kid ran, he defaced property, he just came here and decided to break the law. The police aren't going to chase you if they can just taser you!!! They said stop multiple times and he refused commands! Tasers prevent police injuries. They celebrated because they caught someone who was vandalizing something which doesn't happen often. I have pity for his family but not for the boy. His death was an accident.

    Yes, I think a bit harsh to say the least. The Crime may have met the degree to use a taser, I hope. Prayers to the family.

    Bad story to hear so sad. I just hope the family is doing well. Lets not forget he was doing criminal acts!
    However, They should have not have been laughing thou. Why did he run? When you break the law your risk to much.
    I agree with the police if that was my building i would be angry.
