Yeah, I'm sure that the police had no other way of dealing with a 76 year old man who was driving an antique tractor in a parade than using a tazor on him. Yes, sir ree, this guy sounds like a real public menace and a very dangerous and unpreditable man. This nation has a fast growing problem with these 76 year old hoodlums who like to use antique tractors in parades as a cover up for their dangerous attitudes and behavoir.

Good, sound police work here. I hope that the punk tractor driver gets a few years in the local pen, performing hard labor for his shameful acts. Just another example of the many dangers that our Nation's Heroes face on a daily basis.

Throw the book at him.......Book 'em, Dano!

West newton kid i hope you get tazored sometime by a police officer for no reason. When writing a comment maybe you should know what the fuck your talking about and know the story. The man was driving a antique and its obvious you don't know that a anique probaly only goes 5 to 10 mph and there not anything thats really huge,so tazoring him to stop was not called for it wasn't like he was gonna get away and havin him stop in the first place was not needed because the man was going to park the tractor and he had a wagon full of people for the parade and alot of them were older than him he was trying to get them in the shade. So next time before you decide to write a dumbass comment, know the story retard and ha ha book em dano your comment just doesn't make sense period get a life HA HA GO FUCK YOURSELF!

I would hope the department will conduct a dull investigation - not "whitewash" this matter. If the action was indeed misconduct - this could point to an underlying problem that the officer has. If so, the officer may be a major libility.

SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH SOCIETY. WHAT IF THAT WERE YOUR 76YR OLD GRANDDAD, THEN WHAT WOULD YOU SAY? YOU NEED TO PRAY AND ASK GOD TO DEAL WITH YOUR ISSUES CAUSE DOING THAT KIND OF MEAN STUFF TO AN ELDERLY PERSON IS JUST DOWN RIGHT MEAN. I'M QUITE SURE THAT COULD HAVE BEEN HANDLED DIFFERENTLY. SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE A RACIST OR EVEN A NASY OLE POLICE OFFICER.

I guess the possibility of sarcasm never enters the subsequent comments on the west newton kids comments. Sounded like he thought the tazoring of the 76 year old gentleman was unnecessary and down right stupid. That's how I read it!

Its a Police Department and you don't have a clue what you are talking about. Clearly you are some psycho from the town this happened in. Get a life and go bother someone in your own town.

Hey Folks, I stopped paying attention to this post a long time ago. But, I just happend to stop by again.

Yes, of course my opening comment was sarcasm. It's amazing that it flew right over the heads of the two dimwits who verbally attacked me.

Do I think that the police should be tazoring 76 year old men who are driving antique tractors in parades? Hell no! In the words of our nation's President: "the police acted stupidly".

Was the parade going so fast that the tractor could not keep up with it. All the parades I see usually have aproblem with being to slow. Maybe they thought the tractor driver was driving to fast or was making a gettaway on the tractor, a wanted fugitive? you must have some mean cops in wyoming. We got a few taser shooters down here too.

We had a real old granny tasered not long ago, I think she weighed about 80 pounds soaking wet. And he tasered her many times.

I would like to suggest to you maybe that Newton Kid was being sarcastic...just my guess though. I actually got quite a laugh out of the creative writing of Newton Kid. Thanks, I needed that!
