No wonder the police often think they are underpaid. It's those scary 10-year-olds out there that are terrifying them. You may think a big, burly police officer might be little reckless in the presence of a 10-year-old, but in today's society, with the decline in morality and lack of respect for the law, you can't be too careful. Taser the 10-year-old!
The police need to hire a pr firm. The pr firm would tell them, if you want to stop getting bad publicity about your bad behavior-- improve your behavior first. It's easier to spin.
So if a particular cop is incapable of reasoning that a 10-year-old child, or a homeless person with emotional problems, or a foreign-speaking traveler, might be safely managed with patience, calm, and intelligence, convince him that it is better public relations to do it anyway.
