    Angry Cop Tasers a Sitting Granny! FIVE TIMES!

    An officer tases a great grandma, and a surveillance camera catches the whole thing on tape.http://www.wdtn.com/photos/tased.jpg

    Franklin Police Lieutenant, Wayne Bowling used his taser on 68-year-old Beverly Kidwell while she was in a police waiting room. Kidwell said, "I felt this excruciating pain, and I was immobilized. And, you can't think or move. And, I fell to the floor and I crumbled up in the fetal position."



    Then, the 68-year-old great grandmother says Lieutentant Bowling ordered her to roll over and stand up. She said, "I thought he is going to http://www.wdtn.com/photos/tased2.jpgkill me, and then the next thing, he shot me again. And he kept saying all the time, get up get up, and I couldn't. It paralyzes your body,

    Well the police aren't giving their side of the story. It doesn't look like she was resisting. If her story is honest I say sue his pants off and get him fired.

    Oh puleeeeze!!! The poor woman was 68 years old. How much of a threat was she to the big burly cop? His action was totally unecessary unless she was pointing a gun at him. He needs to be fired, he obviously can't handle the job if he feels threatened by a elderly woman and needs to defend himself by tazering her!

    I think that is the point here. She was sitting not arrested and an older woman. What was he scared of? There are men that hate mother figures. I think this guy has big problems.
    We had a case here. A policeman was caught on tape pepperspraying a naked hand cuffed feet cuffed man for no reason. He resigned. But did he get sued? Did the police who are watching the security tapes do anything? No.The man went to the hospital and had to stay for days.

    After reading this story and watching her on video, I have come to the conclusion that this Police Officer is nothing short of sadistic, Police are people who we should be able to trust but when you see things like this...it really makes you wonder who the criminals are.


    I hope the lady sues both the Police Department and the Officer involved and ensures he loses his job.

    Well, I for one will sleep better knowing this psychopathic granny has been tasered into submission. I hope the next time she thinks she can sit, she'll think again!

    Seriously, I can't understand what the hell this cop was thinking, nor can I understand why he wasn't immediately fired!

    Agreed. I'd like a shot at this officer myself. Maybe he'd like to be in a totally defenseless situation and have someone stand over him with a smirk on their face....just like he did.
    Payback is necessary with people who just don't get it.
    Do you really want this officer pulling you over late at night for speeding?
