Police Use Taser on 87-Year-Old Woman Cutting Dandelions With a Knife

Don’t tase her, bro!

Well, this escalated quickly. A Georgia police chief said an officer was justified in using a Taser to stun an 87-year-old woman after she didn’t obey commands to drop a knife in her hand. Martha Al-Bishara was charged with criminal trespass and obstructing an officer when police held her at gunpoint before bringing her to the ground with a jolt from the electrified prongs of a stun gun. Relatives said Al-Bishara doesn’t speak English and was merely out cutting dandelions with a kitchen knife near her home near Atlanta. But Al-Bishara’s relatives said the officers should have shown more patience.

I guess we should be happy they didn’t just shoot her.
