    Don't Taze My Granny!

    "Police Tasered an 86-year-old disabled grandma in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she couldn't breathe, after her grandson called 911 seeking medical assistance, the woman and her grandson claim in Oklahoma City Federal Court. Though the grandson said, 'Don't Taze my granny!' an El Reno police officer told another cop to 'Taser her!' and wrote in his police report that he did so because the old woman 'took a more aggressive posture in her bed,' according to the complaint."

    This story is hard to believe. They felt threatened by an 86 year old women hooked up to an oxygen tank who "took a more aggressive posture in her bed"? And it seems self incriminating to write down that as the reason for tazering someone in the police report. Someone should ask these officers whatever happened to the idea of the police being there to protect and serve people and remind them that their salary comes from taxpayers.

    We either need to decommission the police force, or overhaul the system and implement an intense retraining program to better prevent incidents like this.

    Is this a joke? Reno 911? There has got to be more too it than this. No way those officers thought they couldn't away with tazing a disabled grandma.

    In another case of abuse by police, a teen on a bicycle was tasered and then was run over by a police officer. The police officer planted a handgun in the pocket of the dead teen while three other police officers watched. The entire incident was recorded by video cameras mounted on the dashboards of police cars. Watch the video here-

    Tazers should be an absolute last resort. The idea that law enforcement and officers of the "peace" are tazing and electrocuting old women and children is criminal.

    We look no better than Russia or China when we brutalize our citizens.
