OK Cops Taze
We call it 'Frontier Justice'
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, Oklahoma 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.
That would be funny if it wasn't true.
Lonnie Tinsley claims that he called 911 after he went to check on his
grandmother, whom he found in her bed, "connected to
a portable oxygen concentrator with a long hose." She is "in marginal health,
[and] takes several prescribed medications daily,"
and "was unable to tell him exactly when she had taken her meds," so, Tinsley
says, he called 911 "to ask for an emergency
medical technician to come to her apartment to evaluate her."
When you're in trouble, you need an Okie cop to come beat
Yes, Oklahoma is where you want to raise your kids.
