    Cop Uses Taser on 72-year Old Grandma

    lol, Can't wait for people to defend the cop on this one... Caine, you want first up?

    http://www.kvue.com/news/top/stories/060909kvue_Taser_woman-cb.64ccc02d.html

    http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2009/06/10/dnt.tx.grandma.tasered.kvue

    On the afternoon of May 11, Travis County Deputy Constable Chris Bieze pulled over a white Toyota pickup truck driven by Kathryn Winkfein, 72. The incident report shows she was clocked driving 60 miles an hour in a 45 mile an hour construction zone along Highway 71. After writing the ticket, Bieze radioed to the Precinct 3 dispatcher that it's a routine traffic stop, but what followed was anything but routine. When Deputy Bieze presented Winkfein with the ticket, she refused to sign.

    "I'm not going to sign it, go ahead and take me to jail, go ahead and take me to jail," Winkfein can be heard telling the deputy in the video.
    EDIT: The best part is in the CNN video when the Sargent says that it was either the taser or she would have been beaten with a metal nightstick. Wow... what a country.

    Over/under until this thread gets locked?
    I give it a day.

    What even post stuff like this in here when you know that there are people who feel strongly on both sides of the fense?
    All you are trying to do is start shit.
    There is no need for this.

    I'm just posting a news story about cops. It's been done hundreds of times on these boards. Not sure why it's a problem now.

    This is what's happening around us, best for everyone to be informed.

    It isn't a problem now, it has always been a problem.
    You seek out inflamatory stories about cops and post them here in an effort to insult and upset people.
    Don't hide behind the "best for everyone to be informed" bullshit.
    I don't believe for one second that you have any altruistic purpose in posting this.

    You may not like them and call them "inflamatory"... but I haven't said a word yet. This is what he did. These are just facts. The Sargent in the video actually alluded to the fact that the other option was being beaten with a metal nightstick... Defend that all you want.

    Honestly, this will be my last post in this thread... you have my word.

    Stories like this that agree/further-prove my viewpoint about cops probably upset you a bit, understandable. I realize it would be easier to ignore the stories and not post them, controlling the amount/type of information the people on this site receive.

    That would be easier.

    Before I seen the video I was bout to go off on the cop but now I see she deserved it. I dont care how old you are, there aint no rule if you are over 70 years old you arent allowed to be tasered. He could be a cruel man but she was the most disrespectful women I have seen.

    i think the cop over reacted.

    i mean just not signing a ticket? thats no reason to be tazered.

    he should have just taken to jail as she requested. if she was being physical yes use the tazor. but not when she's just say take me to jail and refusing to sign a ticket

    The old broad acted drunk and stupid. Love the way she went down when he tasered her...can anyone say "lawsuit"?

    are you telling me a middle aged man, probably in decent physical shape isn't capable of holding back a 72 year old woman?
    There are far better ways to do this then tazer an old lady.
    So what if she's being rude? Last i checked there was freedom of speech in the US wasn't there?
    What the hell makes cops so god damn special that its a law we have to talk nicely to them at all times.
    Respect should be earned, not given, and he hasn't earned it.
    Don't get me wrong, Lots of cops earn respect, but lots don't.
    Some just complete police training and automatically believe they're king shit.
    They aren't.
    Only possible reason for using a weapon on her is if she had a weapon herself (she didn't)
    Plus, given the choice of the nightstick or taser, probably the nightstick woudl be the better choice.
    If you hit her in a limb with the stick, what happens?
    Maybe a broken bone.
    Tasering an old lady is a huge risk, she could have heart problems, and that taser could kill her.


    I hope this cop gets sued, or fired.
