Yeah, I saw a video of the police tazing an old lady. She wasn't doing what he said, but he could've easily taken her down without it. But, in their defense, they are trained that way.

An old lady is just as dangerous as a strong, muscular man if they are properly armed. The cops I know are always taught to treat a suspect (no matter the age, pregnancy status, gender, etc) as if they are armed until they have verified otherwise.

I agree, but this old lady wasn't armed and wasn't fighting him. She just wasn't doing what the officer said. I'm not saying she didn't deserve to be tazed, just giving more information.

As mothers, our first instinct should be to protect our children. Clearly, she lacks that instinct.

That woman is an idiot for acting like that. If she fights the police, she should expect to get tased.



The info in the video said that the police were called because a white guy hit their car. Why all the fuss over a vehicle accident? It's the couple's fault for acting a fool.
