Texas cop get away with Tasering 72 year old, great-grandmother

A policeman who caused outrage by tasering a 72-year-old woman when he stopped her for speeding has been cleared by a grand jury. The jury declined to charge Deputy Constable Christopher Bieze on a charge of injury to an elderly person.
