    FL - Woman shot after attacking LE with SWORD

    http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=170704&src=3

    Lake County sheriff's deputies acted properly when they shot and wounded an Antioch Township woman who attacked them with a sword, an investigation has concluded.
    .........
    Fix said police were called around 2 p.m. Monday by witnesses who saw Hevrdejs throwing things at cars and pouring gasoline in the roadway at Route 83 and Eagles Nest Road.

    ......

    The deputies forced their way into the house, and authorities said Hevrdejs confronted them holding a large sword.

    After repeated commands to drop the weapon were ignored, the deputies fired a Taser at the woman, but the device failed to shock her into compliance.

    .......

    Two shots were fired after Hevrdejs swung the sword and slightly injured the hand of one deputy, she said.

    She must have been on something if the taser didn't drop her after multiple tries.

    Or she was not on something she should have been on. During a fit of rage some mental patients can be amazingly strong and resistant due to excessive levels of adrenalin being released into the brain (I think).

    Alcohol and drugs not a factor. Police have been called often. This woman was charged for assaulting a police officer in 2007. She has a history of mental health problems.http://www.nwherald.com/articles/200...4112163916.txt

    According to a reliable local source, I just heard they tasered her THREE times with no effect.

    Well, that's gonna leave a mark.
