Police Tasered An 86-Year-Old Disabled Grandma In Her Bed
Would someone please check the water at the police stations across America because either it is something wrong with the water or the police done lost their mind. I sorta think it's the latter, myself. It appears that the police cannot resist the urge to use excessive force and sometimes deadly force on folks. It doesn't matter if they are elderly, disabled with autism, children, unarmed or war veterans. Enough is enough!
In this case, an 87 year old bedridden granny wearing an oxygen tank was tasered while lying in the bed.
"Police Tasered an 86-year-old disabled grandma in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she couldn’t breathe, after her grandson called 911 seeking medical assistance, the woman and her grandson claim in Oklahoma City Federal Court. Though the grandson said, “Don’t Taze my granny!” an El Reno police officer told another cop to “Taser her!” and wrote in his police report that he did so because the old woman “took a more aggressive posture in her bed,” according to the complaint."~~Tim Hull, Courthouse Newsroom Service!~~
"The police then fired a Taser at her and only one wire struck her, in the left arm; the police then fired a second Taser, striking her to the right and left of the midline of her upper chest and applied high voltage, causing burns to her chest, extreme pain and to pass out"~~Tim Hull, Courthouse Newsroom Service!~~
Those two police officers in this incident don't sound like they playin with a full deck. Not only did they endanger that old woman's life, that was one of the dumbest moves they could have made. Lucky for them they didn't cause that oxygen tank to blow them all up in bits and pieces. Does it really take a rocket scientist to figure that out?
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
