God made cops so firemen would have heroes.

A 72-year-old woman named Kathryn Winkfein got tasered not too long ago after she lost her temper at the cop who pulled her over. Her offense? Shouting at him.

Luckily, she "learned her lesson" about talking back to America's authority figures. She was also awarded $40,000 in damages, which her County Constable, Richard McCain, complained was a reward for "bad behavior." Apparently putting 50,000 volts through the heart of someone's great-grandma is not bad behavior, as long as you wear a police uniform.

Winkfein was lucky. In what Digby calls the "Taser Atrocity Of The Day," a man who took groceries without having paid for them was tasered continuously for 37 seconds, after he became "aggressive and was communicating loudly." He died in the hospital.

The police officer who killed him was suspended for five days

All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage.

The pinko liberals will jump on this and say a big bully policeman abused a cute little grandma. Truth is, she taunted and disobeyed legitimate authority, placed her own safety and that of the officer in jeopardy from passing traffic, and refused to comply with instructions.
My only complaint is that the deputy should have SPANKED the old cow rather than taze her. Put that impudent and disrespectful creature over your knee, and give her whack-whack-whack!
