Zapped: Why did police Taser 82-year-old grandma? :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Mary Mitchell: "According to a police source, when officers arrived, Fletcher was 'swinging a hammer' and becoming 'increasingly violent.' When Fletcher failed to stop as ordered, an officer discharged a Taser. Also, it's worth noting that Fletcher hasn't been charged with violating any laws. 'The matter is being looked into by the Office of Professional Standards, and the Chicago Police Department will also be reviewing the matter to determine if procedures were followed,' a police spokesman said."
And, of course, they will find that the officers did nothing wrong. They never do. They are perfect little angels that never do anything wrong.
The old woman is lucky they didn't just shoot her in the face, then sprinkle crack on her body and say she pulled a gun.
Are there any standards at all about who can become a cop? Do you just have to have a bad attitude, a crewcut and a steroid connection?
