Raw Texas cop Tasers 72 year old great-grandmother: A traffic stop for speeding in a construction zone led to the tasering of a 72-year old great-grandmother by a Texas deputy. Kathryn Winkfein, 72, of Granite Schoals, Texas was then handcuffed, and taken away to jail for resisting arrest and detention. The deputy said that when he asked Winkfein to sign the speeding ticket he issued, she refused, used profane language and became violent, at which point he tased her. The great-grandmother admits to speeding, but denies the rest of the deputy's allegations, and has hired an attorney to represent her, she tells a Fox News reporter: Winkfein showed FOX 7 her taser scars. "Here and here. Two places, side by side. It's unreal. It's like an electric shock," she said. "I wasn't argumentative, I was not combative. This is a lie. All of this is a lie, pulled away from him I did not," she said, reading the arrest affidavit. Regardless, it's difficult to fathom how a speeding ticket evolved to the point where a trained law enforcement officer felt the need to jolt an elderly woman with a taser. Fox News has requested a copy of the deputy's dashboard camera video recording of the encounter, but has not yet received a response.
I'll quote Bill Maher on this one: "...what happened? Did she call you a pussy? Because if you're a [grown man] and if you have to tase an elderly woman to get her down, then you are a pussy."

June 10, 2009 www.youtube.com Footage of a 72-year-old Texas woman being tasered after she was issued a speeding ticket has emerged. Travis County police released the footage after Kathryn Winkfein told reporters she had not been aggressive when refusing to sign the ticket issued by a patrolman. The footage shows the great-grandmother being directed to leave her pick-up truck and then arguing with Deputy Chris Beasey as they stand by the road behind the vehicle. "Give it to me and I'll sign it give it to me and I'll sign it," she says, apparently reaching for the ticket. "Get over here now!" he screams, pushing her away. "You're gonna shove me? You're gonna shove a 72-year-old woman?" she replies. Police claim the officer pushed Ms Winkfein to get her away from passing traffic. Deputy Beasey then warns he will use the Taser. "You don't step back, you're going to be tased," he says. "Go ahead, tase me! Hell, a 72-year-old woman," she replies. "Get back, or you're going to be tasered," he repeats. "I dare you," she says. Last Friday, Ms Winkfein told reporters she had not put up any resistance prior to being tasered. "I wasn't arguing all of this is a lie, every bit of this is a lie," she said. But in the footage, Ms Winkfein appears to defy the officer. "I'm getting back in my car," she says. At this point, Deputy Beasey deploys the Taser, bringing her to her knees in apparent agony. "Get on the ground, get on the ground!" he yells as she falls, moaning. "Now put your ...

June 10, 2009 www.youtube.com NYPD cops are blogging about killing me on their own private website. theerant.yuku.com A Texas cop tasers a 72 year old great grandmother for refusing to sign a traffic ticket. A 72 years old grandma got tasered because of over speeding in an under construction road in Austin, Texas. She was driving with the speed of 60 MPH on a road where the speed limit was only 40 MPH. The police constable gave her a ticket on over speeding but she refused to sign on the papers. She tried to skip from the shoulder of the road and also used foul language on the constable. The police constable at first tried to be lenient and he also gave her many warnings but the little grandma was getting out of control and thus he had to use a teaser in order to calm her down. The lady fell on the road after getting a taser shock. The little old grandma was then arrested and was put in jail but she was bailed out of the jail the very next day. A lot of people are giving comments on this issue. Some are far and others are against the act of the constable. The Austin community is reacting on the whole scene. Some are saying that the constable should have been lenient to the 72 years old woman, considering her old age. While the others are saying that whatever he did was legal and right because the law is equal for everyone regardless to the age. The movie of the whole scene was made by the camera on the dashboard of the constable?s car. Just take a look of it and tell us ...
A 72-year-old woman who was Tasered by police talks to NBC's "Today" show with Matt Lauer.
The driver was indeed belligerent and resisted arrest, but this officer seemed to be bloodthirsty for any slight indignation that would permit him to do everything within his power. He was obviously taking out unrelated anger on her, but did he really have to save it for this poor old woman? You can see where he gets an erection after tasing her (don't hurt your eyes, there's not much to make an imprint). Remember that when you sign a ticket, you're only agreeing to appear in court on a date to be set later, otherwise you have to be taken in and wait until the magistrate has time to see you. So this officer was completely within his right to arrest her, although it's ultimately his decision to do it, but he was talking about tasing her since he first laid eyes on her. I can only hope that at least something exactly like this happens to his grandmothers and mother.

News: June 11, 2009 A traffic stop in Texas ended with a 72-year-old woman getting tasered, and it was all caught on the officer's dashboard camera. Now, some are asking if the officer went too far. Officer Christopher Bieze pulled Kathryn Winkfein over for speeding on May 11th. Winkfein can be heard arguing with the officer and refusing to sign the citation. A police report says that's when the officer told her to step out of her vehicle and ordered off the roadway. The report says Winkfein then began using profanity and refusing to cooperate, endangering both herself and the officer. He pulled his taser and ordered her to obey his commands. The suspect can be heard daring the officer to shoot her with the taser as she tried to get back in her car. That's when the officer fired the taser to subdue the woman and bring the situation under control. Did the officer go too far? His department says no and is defending his actions. Mrs. Winkfein was checked out by ems workers at the scene and was determined to be unharmed before being taken into custody.
News: June 10, 2009 The headline inspires attention and maybe outrage, but maybe the event was more complicated. Grandmother asks to be tased and eventually it happens-was it understandable or over the top? When I read that a police officer tased a 72-year-old woman, the first emotion I felt was surprise (of course), and the second was curiosity. What the heck happened? Why would anyone ever tase an old woman? After watching the video on MSNBC, I realized that the fault, perhaps, didn't lie with an overzealous and taser-trigger-happy officer. Apparently Kathryn Winkfein was stopped for speeding - she'd been driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. So she wasn't exactly a speed demon, but getting pulled over at that speed is understandable. The video showed (with cuts that make it seem as though much less time had passed than actually had) the officer speaking to the woman through the window, then her getting out of the truck and being extremely argumentative. Curse words and a confrontational tone were clearly recorded, and she was certainly not the docile great-grandmother type that I had supposed she was, judging by the headline. She initially refused to sign the ticket, then said things like "take me to jail. Go ahead and take me to jail," and "go ahead. Tase me." At one point she even took a fighting stance against him! The police officer tried to grab her and she jerked her wrist away. After a little longer, when he threatened to tase her, she called his bluff. Down she went ...
News: June 10, 2009 www.youtube.com Caught On Tape: May 11, 2009 in Austin Texas: A newly released police tape shows an officer using a taser gun on a 72-Year-Old woman during a routine traffic stop. The woman claims she did nothing to provoke the attack.
What makes me even more sick is the people commenting that she deserved it for not listening to him. FUCK YOU, nobody should be brutalized for "not following orders." This isn't fucking Communist China or Nazi Germany, as much as you dickheads might wish it was. If you don't follow orders then there are legal procedures that don't involve brutalization you morons.
...a mistake made with a gun. The purpose of government shouldn’t be to do good, but simply to refrain from doing evil. A 72 year old woman was tasered? Shocking! Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent...
Texas COP TASERS 72 YEARS OLD WOMAN 9th june 2009........ The shape of things to come.............
This video contains footage that has not been shown by any of the News stations. My thanks to the Travis County Precinct 3 Constable's Office for providing this uncut video. This is almost ten minutes of the incident without cuts. The video brightness and contrast were adjusted for better viewing.
That 72 year old granny that got tasered by the travis county constable has got her own TV show on FOX! the real story below: The Travis County Constable's Office Precinct 3 Tuesday released the dashboard camera video of a questionable traffic stop on Highway 71. The question is, did the deputy go too far in getting the 72-year-old woman to comply or did her actions along a dangerous stretch of highway warranted her being tasered? On the afternoon of May 11, Travis County Deputy Constable Chris Bieze pulled over a white Toyota pickup truck driven by Kathryn Winkfein, 72. The incident report shows she was clocked driving 60 miles an hour in a 45 mile an hour construction zone along Highway 71. After writing the ticket, Bieze radioed to the Precinct 3 dispatcher that it's a routine traffic stop, but what followed was anything but routine. When Deputy Bieze presented Winkfein with the ticket, she refused to sign. "I'm not going to sign it, go ahead and take me to jail, go ahead and take me to jail," Winkfein can be heard telling the deputy in the video. At that point, Bieze informed her if she doesn't sign, he will have to take her to jail, which is standard policy. He then opened her door and asked her to move to the rear of the vehicle. Once out of the vehicle, Winkfein agrees to sign the ticket. She uses profanity in doing so. "Give me the (BLEEPING) thing and just let me sign it," Winkfein said. "Get over here now," Deputy Bieze said. Winkfein then attempts to walk ...

72 year old great grandmother being tasered by policeman twice her size.
Grandma got tasered by a Texas ranger, driving home to our house one unplesant eve. You can say there is no such thing as tyranny in America, but as for me and grandma we believe. There is something seriously wrong with the psyche of youth in America today. They think it is cool to taser a 72 year old grandmother cause she was mouthing off to the police. They think that cop gave her what she deserved and tasing was needed shut her up. Now that the tasing is seen as just, it is now open season on the baby boomer's who try to stand up for their rights against tyrannical authority. Baby boomer's deserve to be tased for being such poor teachers and mentors to our youth, they failed to teach their kids about freedom and liberty. Go ahead Texas Rangers tase away at the boomer's all you want to shut them up if they open their mouths and try to stand up for their rights. Nobody is going to do anything about it. America is dead.
The police claim that after Kathryn Winkfein was stopped for driving 15 miles over the speed limit in a construction zone, she disobeyed an order to sign the speeding ticker, used profane language, and became violent. They say the officer who taserer her and took her to be booked for resisting arrest was completely justified. However, Winkfein says thats a lie, and the video appears to back her up. It shows Constable Richard mccain screaming, Get over here now! Winkfein replies, Give [the ticket] to me and Ill sign it. Instead, the officer reaches out and pushes her, and she starts complaining, Oh, youre going to shove me? Youre going to shove a seventy-two year old woman? mccain then tasers her. As Winkfein lies on the ground screaming, he orders, Now put your hands behind your back. Put your hands behind your back or youre going to be tasered again. Foxs Brian Kilmeade commented after running the video, Officers insisted they acted by the book. What book is that?
www.dailyhump.com ----------------------------- http ------------------------------ Everyone seems to be missing the real issue, THE POLICY ITSELF. This incident is just a symptom of a poor policy. The officer was indeed following protocol, but that does not make the protocol correct. This method of "pain compliance" (torture) for minor offenses is a gross misuse of a technology intended as a last resort for saving lives when facing violent individuals in life threatening situations. These devices have simply become tools to force obedience as if we were animals. "Taser Ruling: Cops Can't Tase You For Disobeying Orders Or Acting Erratically" www.sfgate.com The video shows Constable Richard mccain screaming, Get over here now! Winkfein replies, Give [the ticket] it to me and Ill sign it. Instead, the officer reaches out and pushes her, and she starts complaining, Oh, youre going to shove me? Youre going to shove a seventy-two year old woman? mccain then tasers her. As Winkfein lies on the ground screaming, he orders, Now put your hands behind your back.
