To be fair.
Which is safest
Taze (no doubt used in stun gun/cattle prod mode)
Sometimes a taze is the safest way to force compliance.

None of the above. The cops were never invited inside. How they got in we don't know. They likely broke in and invaded the sanctity of the lady's private property. And she has every right to have a big farkin' knife beside her bed if she wants-to.
After the brave cops invaded her home and upset her, instead of 'reverting to their professional training', they should have reverted to the training their mother gave them to be kind to the elderly. The lead cop should have asked everybody else to back out and just speak in soft tones to her, telling her that somebody had asked them to check on her and if she was okay. THAT is what peace officers do, they "serve and protect"; they help their fellow citizens and Taze those who really threaten them out in the world, not in a person's castle. I can not think of ANY reason they would have to Taze her...NOT ONE. BTW, I hope granny sues the crap out of these bastards for violating her fourth Amendments rights and for the serious injuries they caused her. When you assault someone, you take them as they are. As frail as she is, there's no-doubt she has been irreversible damaged.
Beware of the 'stormtroopers'; they are among us.
