PUEBLO, Colo. — Days after a deputy stunned an "out of control" 10-year-old, Sheriff Kirk Taylor said his office has no plans of altering its TASER policy in regard to the device's use on children.

"It's not black and white. Every scenario is different. The threat is different. (Using a TASER), that discretion needs to be left to the officer and then it needs to be scrutinized, and trust me, it's been scrutinized," Taylor said at a press conference Thursday.
