    As someone not ashamed to take the moral low road...



    I wonder if her grandson is the "Don't tase me, bro!" kid...
    I know a girl, she's one of a kind
    But the poor little thing, she's going out of her mind
    There's something you forgot - there's a reason why she's lost
    Cos baby she don't want to be found

    if this woman doesn't know or didn't want to adhere to the etiquette for dealing with police officers then she deserved to be tazed.

    that said, i think the requirement to sign your speeding tickets is pretty damned stupid and creates an environment where these kinds of encounters are much more possible.

    edit: yup, just watched it again and this woman is definitely dumb.

    btw this is what i was watching

    Deserved based on what? Tasing is potentially lethal for elderly people. There isn't a reason for death or injury to be risked based on refusal to sign a ticket.

    Once the person has shown herself to be uncooperative it's within guidelines for the officer to use the tools given to him to prevent injury to himself and the suspect. Would you have rather he shoved and pinned the grandmother to ground? Follow instructions, don't be an idiot, and things like this don't happen.

    This action was NOT justified. the officer followed his training, but his training alone was not sufficient to handle this situation. He abused his authourity and did NOTHING to calm the woman down.

    And does her being 'dumb' (in your perfect estimation) have to do with anything?

    Grabbing her, which doesn't risk death, would have sufficed. She's 72.

    the action was justified, this woman resisted arrest. and she's dumb because she asked (literally) to be arrested rather than accept the ticket.

    Just because she's stupid doesn't justify the officer's actions. It's not so much the tasing I'm opposed to but how the whole situation was delt with. The officer immediately resorted to yelling and shoving which aggravated the situation. Talking a person down should be your first weapon. Also police have been trained to deal with feistier criminals than 72-year old women without taser usage. After watching the video I don't think the officer was in danger of being harmed nor was she going to out run him. I think it's a simple proceedure that got out of hand.
    Is not to be held accuntable for peeling errors.
