Human Rights: Your Grandma Is Next

Holy Hoot Owls. What next? Police in Chicago tasered an 82-year-old woman who suffers from schizophrenia and dementia because, they say, she was "swinging a hammer." The woman in question, Lillian Fletcher, stands 5' 1" and weighs 160 lb. We at Casa de Los Gatos could probably subdue her with one hand, hammer or no hammer. When did the Chicago cops turn into such a bunch of pussies?

Shoot, the pussycats at Casa de Los Gatos could probably, singly or in a group, subdue grandma without too much effort.

Are Tasers turning into the solution for everything? We know they can cause death. Do we want to be killing people's grandmothers because they're mentally disturbed?
