  1. Police Taser Great Grandmother


    5 times!

    Even if she was being arrested, it doesn't take a taser to arrest a 67 year old woman. IMO ...


  2. I would not be judging until I hear the other side of the story. grandma was not innocent. I have seen a guy get tazed twice while running from the police and kept running during both tazes. he ended up getting away.

  3. She may have been guilty, but if the cop had to tazer the women 5 times I think it at least speaks ill of his personal fitness that he couldn't restrain some old lady without zapping her.

    i saw it on the morning show, she wasn't running or anything she just refused to comply. His alternative was to take her down and break her hip I suppose. I personally got a good laugh out of it. Remember we are all equal in the eyes of the law , if you can tazer a 22 yr old black man, you can tase an 80 yo white lady.

  5. Taser's allow the officer to minimize blunt force trama injuries and the affects of pepper spray on the citizen while greatly reducing the risk of injury to the officer. The bottom line is: do as your told and you won't get tasered.

    I don't think that's what he is refering to. Civil disobedience is one thing, resisting arrest is another. Neither are completely good or bad, but if you don't want to get tazed, you should do what you are told when you are in police custody for beating your daughter.

  9. You are thinking like a "normal" person would think.

    When people are under the influence of, drugs and alcohol, they don't think like a "normal" person would.

    ****, man...come on...this is an unarmed 67 year-old woman.

    Be serious.

    This is like a bad dream...like the cops on 'roids thread.

    Some of you are so scared of something - not sure what - crime, terrorists, grandmas - that you are ready and willing to create a police state and excuse the behavior of a group of fallible humans (just like the rest of us) who will be above the law and immune to normal societal conventions and rules.

    A group that you are willing to give the authority to do as they like in the name of making you feel safe. Better hope none of them get the idea you are bad guys and taser your ass for speaking your mind of refusing to toe the line.

    You are some scared and scary folks.

    What are you talking about? No one said anything about a police state or infallibility of police. It's the reality of our current law, plain and simple. If you don't want to be tazed, don't resist arrest. Whether or not we should allow tazing or not is irrelevant to the discussion of whether or not the cop was justified in tazing her because tazing is currently an accepted and legal practice.

    yeah what are you talking about? there is way to many big words in here for discussion on an old lady getting tazed.

    haha the old lady didnt see that one comin did she!

  14. Also remember this is Ohio.

    You are thinking like a "normal" person would think.

    When people live in Ohio, they don't think like a "normal" person would. (I.E. Ohio State fans)

    half of the people responding in this thread are cops and it seems the bottom line from their point of view is "do what i say and i wont hurt you". i personally think that 90% of cops are high school bullies aged 20 or 30 years with severe inferiority complexes due to both professional and personal interaction with cops.

    this isnt a police state? it doesnt matter what rights you think you have a cop does whatever he wants and fills out a doctored police report to make it legal. cops will find a way to make you do whatever they want whenever they want and they are covered by all of their buds in the legal system, the corruption makes me sick. i feel less safe around cops than around people i know have committed crimes

  16. Another demonstration that police lack a very important thing known as discretion. This incident fits nicely with the tasing of a 5 year old girl. Nice one guys, I feel so much safer since you got granny under control. Glad that community's tax dollars are being appropriated wisely into that great officer's pockets.

    Stop cutting these idiots so much slack. They haven't earned it, they don't deserve it.

    That said, there are many good cops out there too.

    Nah...it is not reality unless people make it so by saying "Shut up and do what you're told and you won't be mistreated".

    Yea...a cop that size really had to taze a 67 year-old grandma if she wouldn't listen. She might have kicked his ass after all. No, really, she should just do as she's told. Of course, not everyone is lucid all the time and knows how to do that. Watch this video...that women is elderly and is not all there. She could have been handled differently...she is not 6'6" and 250, she posed no physical threat. It is NOT acceptable practice to use unnecessary force in a case like this. Minimal force necessary is sufficient...not like she was running up the aisle in an airplane yelling about having a bomb or something like that. Law enforcement people need to know how to deal with this in better ways than to taze someone - and they really do.

    That means this guy chose to be a prick and if he had to go to that extreme measure, then he needs to hang up the badge and grap a stop sign and an orange vest and head on down to the school crossing...

  18. There is a possibility that he was just an *******. But, if she said no 5 times, she's an idiot lol.

    She was there for child abuse (hitting her granddaughter) so she was obligated to do as she was told, right?

    I agree with whoever said: "If you can tazer a 22yr old black man you can tazer a 67 yr old white woman"

  19. And dude, that was a big ****in cop!!! Dude could probably bench a VW beetle!

    Not sure about the 90%. But as a forensic evaluator, I know that psychological evaluations of law enforcement officers who commit actions like this one (certainly a minority of police officers) tend to come out looking a lot like psychopaths. It can be hard to tell their profiles from those of criminals - especially those of spouse and child abusers who are the type who need control and use violence to obtain it.

    This guy likely should not be carrying a weapon of any type.

  21. I agree with Jack, 90 % is way off. How many policeman do you personally know, jomi??

    Policeman are in fact human beings, and like human beings make bad decisions.

    This copper just had his 15 mins. He will have to live with his decision to taser grandma for the rest of his life.

    The sad part is that everyone loses in this case, except for her attorney when he collects from the city..

    Who in here was a cop? I sure am not. Quit making assumptions.

    i personally think that 90% of cops are high school bullies aged 20 or 30 years with severe inferiority complexes due to both professional and personal interaction with cops.
    I personally think that's an ignorant and unreasonably spiteful comment.

    Based off of what do you draw this conclusion? MTV? lol.... Are you a "thug" and da' man is out to get you? Come on...lets get real. If 90% of cops were bullies then in my 22 years I'm sure I would have been bullied once living in Southern CA. I got pulled over (I think unreasonably) once and the cop was even cool then and let me go.

    I don't have any friends who have experienced this problem either. And PLEASE don't bring up the race card with this. That argument cannot win, ever, when it comes to racial profiling unless you think its wrong despite all statistical data, etc.
    this isnt a police state? it doesnt matter what rights you think you have a cop does whatever he wants and fills out a doctored police report to make it legal. cops will find a way to make you do whatever they want whenever they want and they are covered by all of their buds in the legal system, the corruption makes me sick.
    There may be a few police forces known for this sort of thing, but that would be by FAR the vast minority. Please, you throw around these 90% numbers and corruption accusations, please start providing numbers and examples. please do.

    i feel less safe around cops than around people i know have committed crimes
    Well..if the crime was stealing a box of cheerios, I don't blame you. But, I can't say I feel the same way by any means.

    Personally, I wouldn't mind a police force with MORE power and less PC intervention.

    Now, yes, we all know he didn't "have" to taser her. But, you can guarantee he was following procedure. lol. Resisting an officer anybody? The law should not discriminate, right?

    my mom is an assistant district attorney, so i know quite a few

  24. If they had tasers way back when...

    What if Rosa Parks got tased?

    Do what you're told? Bah! Do what's right.

    You're only accountable to God.
