Well, El Reno made the Drudge Report and in a horrible light.
10 policemen standing around the bed of an 86 year old. Stop her oxygen and TAZER HER?
What brave men!!!!!
Thank God, I am not a citizen of your fair town.....it would scare me to death. So if the Police Dept. attacks you, who do you call for help? Not the brilliant officer Duran and his idiot crew!
El Reno----a good city to avoid.

I won't EVER be visiting you town since your police department seems to be full of ruthless idiots. Tasering 86 year old bedridden grandmothers is an indication that everyone in your town must be absolutely stupid. Here's a piece of advice from a conservative Republican who believes in law and order: Fire the Police Chief and the entire department or else nobody from the rest of the USA will visit your town.

I am blown away by the cruelty of these police officers---10 of them!! Standing on that poor old womans oxygen tube ?? I guess that explains Nazi evil - they did it because they could. I'm embarassed for your town, I cringe at the violence done to this elderly woman. Maybe there has been too much inbreeding in this town---how else can you explain this

I suspect El Rino's liability carrier is having a little chat with city officials about next year rate increase and the necessity of weeding out the misfits and unqualified officers from the police department and the obvious need for additional training.

This lawsuit may bankrupt the City of El Reno. You voters will then know what to do. These Barney Fife officers and their Chief need taser-ing themselves for a start. This story has gone viral on the net and is even in the British press. Merchants and Chamber of Commerce - are you listening?
