46. I am also 61 and severely hearing impaired. I don't wear my hearing aids
unless I am watching TV/a movie, teaching class, or actually conversing with someone. If I am out and about, I don't wear my aids.

If a cop spoke to me while I was not looking at him, I would not hear that he had spoken--and thus I too would be fair game for a taser shot, if that is their standard for deciding whether to Tase someone! Furthermore, I have cardiac arrhythmia, so I am guessing I would not respond well to a taser shot!
