Im with the cop on this one.... A cop tells you to do something you go and do it.

Dude she totally deserved it. She was belligerant, confrontational, uncooperative, kept pushing their "discussion" closer and closer into on coming traffic, and attempted to just flat out escape towards the end. The cop gave her a ton of warnings of what would happen if she didn't cooperate and stay put and she ignored them. All she had to do to avoid any of that was sign the bloody ticket. Instead she decided she was worthy of special treatment simply because of her age and quite frankly got what she deserved in response.

Now if only we could work on tasing everyone else in the world with an entitlement mentality.

All suspects should be tazed first and questioned later.

When we have people in my district who get tazed, if they remain petulant about it, after their trials we ask for restitution for the spent tazer cartridges. Insult, meet injury!

The only question in my mind is whether the tazer was the appropriate way to subdue her. The cop was clearly in the right as far as restraining her, but he probably could have cuffed her easily.

I guess he didn't know whether she was a MMA fighter or something. There might be a state or local policy about using tazers to avoid other injuries.

There's a much greater chance of injury to both her and the officer in a hand-to hand confrontation.

Plus, imagine they're wrestling around on the ground, she squirts out and darts into traffic?

This was the fastest, and safest, way to resolve it, IMO.

I think he did try to cuff her... but she still wasnt being cooperative.

That poster reminds me of Night of the Lepis. Great movie to go MST3K on.

Eugh, I'm not sure he put enough effort into trying to cuff her without the taser, but we didn't get the whole video, that would be the dealmaker for me...

We grow our little old ladies down here batshit insane and tough as old shoe leather.


Don't fuck with a Texas Granny.


Also, don't fuck with the sherriff's department.

Then I am surprised this doesn't happen more often.

The thing that gets me about this whole scenario is that before the video was relesed, the woman complained to the Sherrif's office about being mistreateated, tasered for no reason at all. The officer said she was being confrontational and resistant, to which granny replied ""I wasn't arguing … all of this is a lie, every bit of this is a lie." Then the video was released, and granny stopped all interviews and hired a lawyer.

:D

That would be the batshit insane part.


See, there are two types* down here, no matter the skin color. There's the Southern Belle old lady that would have had that deputy absolutely ashamed he'd bothered an old woman of her standing. Then there's the crazy aggressive kind that does that.

I aspire to be the first.


*There are always exceptions, but the generalization still holds for the majority.
