Do you think police went too far when they arrested a boy trying to give Terri Shavo Water?

The first link comes back as "forbidden".
The second link establishes that the correct spelling of her surname is "Schiavo" but having skim-read the whole (ridiculously long for your purposes) article, I find no reference to anyone being arrested at all.
The third link is to a Christian pro-life website. Googling the name "Joshua Heldreth" only brings up similar websites and blogs. No major news outlets have covered his story as far as I can tell. The only references that I can find to anything like this at all was this and the following from Wikipedia: "Forty-seven protesters, including many children, were arrested outside the hospice where Schiavo was located. Most of these were non-violent, staged arrests for trespassing, made when protestors crossed a police line in a symbolic attempt to bring water to Schiavo. One man ran past police and reached the front door of the hospice carrying a glass of water for Terri; he was stunned with a Taser and was apprehended."

Perhaps the wording of your question should reflect this - as even if a ten year old boy was arrested, it wasn't for actually trying to bring her water, but for trespassing as part of a larger protest.

I know nothing about this situation. Can we get an explanation or a link?

You need to provide context ( a link to the story or a detailed explanation). You should say either "juvenile" or "boy" rather than both. I don't think that's the correct spelling of the surname, perhaps you should look it up? And this definitely needs at least an "Other" option.
