Omaha police shocked a nursing home resident with a Taser last month after the 79-year-old man with dementia threatened officers with a fistful of safety pins.
Relatives of Rodell Cole don't understand why the incident happened. They plan to file a complaint with the Omaha Police Department.
The 106-pound Cole was left with a bruise on one knee, where he says he was kicked by an officer.
Yolanda Cole, Rodell's niece, said staff members and police should have left her uncle alone. He would have calmed down, she said.
What is wrong with cops today? The elderly man weighed 106 pounds. 3 cops, yes...3 cops and they have to use a taser. How sad! Then the brave cops handcuffed him and took him to protective custody at Immanuel Medical Center. I'm so freaking glad the 3 stooges got this man off the streets....
He had a fist full of safety pins. No word on if they were open though. Calling them the three stooges is being very kind, but I understand this is a family show.
LOL...I guess that was reason enough to shoot him if he had safety pins..lol...
