Cops Kill 95 Yr Old War Vet

This is crazy – Cops were called into an assisted living facility because of a resident, a WWII Vet, who refused to go to the hospital to get treated for a UTI. They came, tased him, shot him with a bean bag, He died of internal bleeding. WTF?

Regardless of the man’s attitude, refusal to get treated, whatever his state of mind, this was not the way to deal with the situation. Unless the guy had a gun and was a danger to others, the authorities and residence staff should’ve used better judgement,
