Granny Attack!

Did you see the story making the rounds today, about the 68-year old grandmother (CNN says Great-Grandmother) who was tasered 5 times by a police officer in the lobby of a police station?

I'm sure there is more to the story, maybe she was being verbally abusive to the officer or something, but 5 shocks with the taser seems like a bit much. The guy had to figure he was going to have a tough sell to explain why a 68-year old woman already in the police station needed the taser multiple times.

Sadly, I found myself amused at how he was supposedly yelling at her to "Get Up" after she twitched onto the floor and curled up in the fetal position from the first shock.
