At Penn Hills High School this morning, Chief Burton said, a student was walking up and down a hallway, using a cell phone. School policy permits students to have cell phones but not to use them during school except in emergencies, Chief Burton said.

A Penn Hills police officer told him to put the phone away and go to class.

"The kid refused to listen," Chief Burton said. "The officer took him by the arm and said, 'You have to go to the office.' The student resisted, pushed the officer. The officer, defending himself, took out his stun gun and did a drive stun."

Chief Burton said a drive stun involves pushing the Taser against a portion of the body and squeezing the trigger, thus immobilizing a portion of the body, such as the leg. He said this affects about a 2- or 3-inch area.

While on the floor, the student was still resisting and was placed in handcuffs, Chief Burton said. The student complained of a headache and dizziness and was taken to Forbes Regional Hospital.

This is one of the new federally mandated courses for all us school systems.  Accelerated Compliance 101.  The new administration, on advice from the Czar of peasant reeducation, has determined that the old system of simply programming youth through 12 years of public school is to slow for the new regime's timetable. Starting within the next few months children deemed not suitable for the Explorers program for Law Enforcement Pretraining (LEP), will be evaluated in the Federal Bureaucratic Employment  Program (FBEP). Any remaining children will be nominated for AC101 to ensure their unquestioning obedience. Any questions can be referred to the DHS. Please make sure that you have your new Domicile Coordinate Number (DCN) provided by the Census Office to ensure a rabid response for your questions.

Thank you for your cooperation.

I would say it's eloquent typo used to enhance the satire by pointing out the actually reality of governmental and law enforcement's...um...zeal in prosecuting non-compliance it's will.

This one works.
