95 year old lady tasered by police

“At the time she was Tasered she was approaching police, it is fair to say at a slow pace,” “She had a walking frame. But she had a knife…"

I think the officer involved would have a bright future in the Met.

Just to reassure French residents I’d like to point out that this shocking event happened in Australia…

Mistaken for Crocodile Dundee’s Mum perhaps?

the use of the Taser was due to Nowland being armed with a steak knife.

Maybe she tried the old “That’s not a knife, THIS is a knife.” line and they replied “no, this is a taser…”

(Sorry, so sorry, it’s a terrible story and taking it at face value seemingly a shameful act by the police, but a bit of mild gallows humour sometimes is necessary :see_no_evil:)
