Police: Pa. Man Pushed Kids, Attacked Officer To Get Candy

October 16, 2012  | 

A Carlisle (Pa.) Police officer needed his TASER to subdue a 51-year-old man who pushed children aside so he could get candy tossed to attendees of a Halloween parade.

Frederick Pisano will likely face charges after Monday's incident, reports WHTM.

The officer was punched when he confronted Pisano, who attendees reported was acting rudely and pushing children. Pisano may have a medical condition that will help explain the attack.

Seriously, why is the news making excuses or trying to justify his action by stating he may have a medical condition that will help explain the attack. When is a doctor going to say, ‘its ok, he did not take his medicine’ that prevents him from pushing children and punching a cop.

Once again, society has continued to make excuses for peoples actions. If, and I say If he has some medical condition, there is no way that it can explain that type of behavior.

Sorry, take responsibility, enough BS. End of story. How are we going to teach our children to take responsibility when adults do not and the media creates excuses for them..

If he has some condition that causes him to have such violent anti social behavior then he should be institutionalized or once again society has failed to look out for the majority of law abiding citizens, in lieu of the one.
