"The police then proceeded to approach Ms. Varner in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she began to suffer oxygen deprivation.
"The police then fired a Taser at her and only one wire struck her, in the left arm; the police then fired a second Taser, striking her to the right and left of the midline of her upper chest and applied high voltage, causing burns to her chest, extreme pain and to pass out.


Seriously... what the fuck?

Well at least they didn't shoot her


To be fair though she was apparently threatening to kill herself with a knife, to be fairer she was a medicated 86 year old bedridden grandmother who at that point was probably so weak fromn the oxygen deprivation that they probably could have plucked the knife from her hands.

had this thread a few days ago with the same source IIRC.

there's something not quite right with the report. ten police officers don't just show up to an emergency medical call unless the address has a history of violence or there's been a miscommunication at some point. Either way this thread will likely turn into an anti-authoritarian circle jerk.

also, where does the standing on the oxygen tube come from?

the grandson is out of the apartment at that point, the old lady is in a bad way eventually suffering from oxygen deprivation and the police aren't likely to include that in their report. the more I think about this the dodgier it seems.

This thread isn't going to end well. Stories involving the police never do. Plus the details seem really sketchy.

For such a "reliable source," the editor sure did a poor job.

"Lona was then handcuffed with sufficient ruthlessness to tear the soft flesh of her forearms, causing her to bleed."

Sounds like another exaturated story by some tabloid magazine, demonizing some hard working law enforcers that probably had good intentions and some tough decisions to make at the scene, with no other purpose that making a little money.

Why is it that all of a sudden, it's cool on The Pit to sympathize with the police? I remember months and months ago where everyone would just rip on the police for brutality, now everyone says something like this:

Because it's a bullshit story.
Do take sides between police and everyone else?

I've always been this way, and now that those police bashers have settled down, I dont feel like a jackass being the one little bitch that dissagrees

I'd never heard of it before today and didn't research it's credibility, so heres my gratitude for the enlightenment, although I don't appreciate the bashing Americans.
