Video - 72 Year Old Granny Tasered

So he did.

Video released by a Travis County Constable's Office shows Kathryn Winkfein hitting the ground and moaning while the shocks jolted through her body after the May 11 confrontation with Travis County Sheriff's Deputy Chris Bieze.

Winkfein was stopped for driving 96kmh in a 70kmh zone just west of Austin. A dashboard camera in the deputy's car shows the 1.5 metres Winkfein refusing to sign her speeding ticket, getting out of her white pickup truck and cursing at the deputy constable.

Thats shocking. He's like six times the size of her FFS! But I suppose he could be accused of just as much brutality for wrestling her to the ground...

Steve the Lawnmower man got tazed too, but nobody complained about that :eh:

Eeek.

Cop hasn't got a clue. There's too much emotion in his voice for starters and he clearly hasn't got the emotional control required for such a difficult job. I honestly think he tazor'd her in anger. I really hope he lost his job at the very least.

just saw this on the news - talk about overkill (or, in the USA, underkill?)

he was strong enough to manhandle her without issue, yet still zapped her. What a prick. All over a speeding ticket! Sack him.

I totally agree. Bullshit with a capital B.
I hope the f@#ker gets what he deserves, but unfortunately, based on the Foxnews poll linked the Youtube article, 55% of Americans think the cop was in the right.
As someone else points out on youtube. The Police officer's voice is clearly wavering, it's obvious he is being aggravated, he is responding out of anger and frustration - which as far as I'm concerned is a joke.
Police like that guy, give other police a totally bad image and portray them as a bunch of power tripping idiots who can't control themselves when a little old lady attempts to "mouth off".
I've seen police on that American show "Cops" handle crack addicts with more respect than that cop showed the old lady. :crazy:

apparently being 72 years old AND a grandmother allows you to break the law and be belligerent.

Not only would I tase her wrinkly ass but when she is down on the ground I'd pop a light globe in her mouth and tase her again...America's Funniest Home Videos just make the cheque out to cash!

Yes, I have no doubt that old hag has spawned at least 4 equally chromosome defiecient rednecks, which in turn managed to breed creating more fuck-knuckles to taze.

Remember folks, this was the US of A, where every gimp has a .44 in their undies. It is no surprise coppers are paranoid, aggressive bastards. Each of 'em probably has had a colleague shot at some point in their career.
