You gotta me kidding me

I simply cannot imagine a scenario where police have to use a Taser and a shotgun with a beanbag round to subdue a 95 year old man who used a walker to move around.  Yes, read that again.  The police used a Taser and a shotgun beanbag round to subdue a 95 year old WWII veteran in a nursing home.  Unsurprisingly, they ended up killing him.  I am sure the city will end up paying a huge wrongful death claim.  I am equally sure no officer will be punished much less criminally pursued for use of excessive force.  Story here.

    So typical! Looks like all he probably had was a metal shoehorn in his hand. Total over reaction!! He was probably very agitated due to a medical situation which is common in the elderly!! Infection or dementia. Dummies!!
