It doesn’t take being tased to stop these Philly fans

By: Jordan Paredes

How many Philly fans does it take to become a popular Google search, as well as create a controversy? One apparently, and another to try and copy.

On Monday night a 17-year old fan hopped over the railing of the Phillies’ stands, and ran across the outfield, dodging authorities. When security couldn’t catch him, they made the decision to use a taser to take control of the juvenile’s actions.

Many are speculating whether or not the use of a taser was justifiable. According to a FOXNews.com article, the police department is discussing with the team if they feel that a taser is appropriate, or the use of too much force.

An article from ESPN.com stated that the act wasn’t broadcasted because they wanted to keep others from performing the same stunt. It didn’t seem to do much to help because a 34-year old man who seemed to ignore the fate of the minor from the night before, decided to jump onto the field during the Tuesday night game.

He did not receive same use of force as the young boy from Monday night did.

Did the kid deserve it? Maybe not, but he took that risk when he wanted his 15 minutes of fame. It didn’t air during game, but he did snag the spot for the number 8 most watched video on Google the day following the incident.
