It happened in Texas, back in May.  A 72-year old woman was stopped for a traffic violation by a state deputy.

She at first refuses to get out of her car. The deputy opens her door and has her exit the vehicle. The deputy towers over her in size.

The woman, a great-grand-mother, does get a little testy, refuses to sign the ticket.  The deputy shoves her. She says she’s going to get back into her car.

The deputy threatens to taser her.  She dares him.

And then he tasers her and she falls to the ground screaming.

Here’s the link to MSNBC’s video.

I’m ashamed and embarrassed to be an American after watching this. You know what? Let freakin’ Texas secede! They gave us the Alamo and George Bush and now this. Let them go! (‘cept Austin – Austin gets to stay.)
