She fled, and yes, once the police tell you you're under arrest, walking away is fleeing. She got tased. She wasn't hurt, she was stopped in her flight.
    She did a faceplant on pavement. Where did you read she was not harmed?

    Force was not needed at that point by the officer. It was completely abuse of force. I explain further in post 18.

    She was no threat to him or others, yet he used a high level of force on her.

    Tasers have the potential to kill...esp older people that might have heart issues. What if she had died? Would that just be "oh well, he was justified in using that level of force....bummer for her?"

    The cops are getting tired of being used for punching bags.
    The public shows them no respect.

    It is when it obstructs their business. She was well warned according to the article.

    Tasers are not considered a "high level of force" nor was it improperly used. If you look into those deaths by taser, not only are they rare, but there are others factors involved, generally multiple tasings.

    Can you please provide sources for those claims?

    Tasers kill. She was shot in the back. And her age certainly qualifies as 'other factors.'

    It may very well have been improperly used...this is why there is an investigation. It was certainly unnecessary. It was unnecessary use of force which is indeed one of the things that police depts, have guidelines regarding.

    Do you believe she was actually obstructing their business? Doesn't look at way from the video, since they had their man.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    While I agree there, there still is no reason in this situation for this officer to taze the woman the back.

    They do not have you taze someone in the back. The tazer is a non-lethal response (in 99% of the cases), however, it was not warranted in this situation as there was no threat.

    Totally irrelevant to this story sense she did not punch him and she was walking away from him.
