Perfect use of the Taser. Why put yourself in between 2 people who are fighting and risk getting hurt? Personally, I would have verbally challenged them first, and then used the Taser if they continued and didn't obey commands to stop.

I think the officer should have used verbal commands to stop the fighting. He ran into the scene and deployed the taser and then said get down on the ground now. What happened to verbal commands?

Nicely done.

TOO QUICK on the trigger...looks like he wanted to try out his new time try more verbal commands...with "SRO's" like this, real Cops are going to lose the right to carry tasers all together

I agree with Adam..

Michael Solarez, for your information, most SROs ARE "real cops". It's a duty assignment just like airport security. You come out of patrol, and go through differnt jobs. It's like the "B-Billet" in the Marines. If you want a promotion, you have to do the duty.

I didn't even see a fight. I saw some dancing around. I was not there and do not know the whole story. Possibilities of previous troubles and warnings given. Was there a weapon involved?
Probably a little excessive based on the short clip.

Impossible to know the full story, as with all videos that appear online. But VERBAL commands before UOF is what should be done...Not the other way around.

Michael Solarez,
just to let you know school resource officers are certified police officers. they carry guns and can do the same things. but they are just working in the school. take it from someone who knows his stuff

I agree with M.Conner, where's the fight? And he tazed the female party. Was that a size bias? Did the officer even try to figure ouyt who the aggressor was? To fast with the weapon not enough verbal judo, what the heck!! Crazy Cops shouldn't be tazing juveniles, she might have been defending herself, or they could have been playing around.

Michael Solarez, you apparently live with your head up your ass. SRO's are typically specially assigned PO's. Their job is a no win situation with all of the danger and potential violence we face in non-school settings. My 20+ years of experience lead me to believe that when a PO states "real cops" they typically are more ego-centric then good cops. Law enforcement is diverse, but we should all have the same goals. Building internal barriers makes the process less effective and more difficult.

rookie cop. used your verbo judo tact,
