This is ridiculous! The pervasive authority mentality of too many law enforcement departments across the country have no respect for any citizen. Instead of pressing the issue with a stubborn 107 yr old man, they could have just left and returned later when he had calmed down. There comes a time when the police have to use some sense of reason and ask themselves if such an aggressive type of action is warranted.

Remember Ulla Love in L.A. a large black woman. When Police broke in, she had a butter knife and was to befuddled to put it down, so they shot her. Also the naked guy in Pasadena climbing a lamp post to spaced out to get down they shot him! Why?
