Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Civil Liberties Examiner: Texas cop Tasers great-grandmother: "A traffic stop for speeding in Travis County, Texas, led to the Tasering of a 72-year-old great-grandmother by a deputy. Feisty Kathryn Winkfein apparently so frightened the law-enforcement officer when she 'used some profanity' and 'got violent' that he felt it necessary to subdue her with a potentially dangerous jolt of electricity."

Oh, oh, since I'm a great-granny, maybe I better stay out of Texas. I don't cuss usually, wonder what the cop did to set her off?
