Let's review the article.
She was speeding.
She exited her vehicle... That's bad
She was swearing and got violent. If that's true, what should the police officer have done?
1.) Get physical. Force her to the ground and cuff her.
2.) Use his baton
4.) Lethal force.
Clearly, the officer's life was not threatened so number 4 is out.
Throwing a 72 year old woman to the ground is likely to injure her.
Clubbing her with a baton is likely to injure her.
Taser may or may not injure her.
So, what should the officer do?
All I will say is Americans complain too much.
This ' Dangerous' speeding 72 year old woman was tasered after refusing to sign a speeding ticket
LOCKPORT — It is legally permissible for police to zap a suspect with a Taser to obtain a DNA sample, as long as it’s not done “maliciously, or to an excessive extent, or with resulting injury,” a county judge has ruled in the first case of its kind in New York State, and possibly the nation.
In her ruling, Sperrazza cited numerous legal precedents and the state’s Criminal Procedure Law, allowing the use of reasonable force to carry out a court order.
So why not just refuse to sign it and state that you are a sovereign individual who doesn't sign contracts?
