63. You keep saying...
... that the taser is "safe". Surely you've been properly trained and are aware that they have cause heart attacks many, many times?

And one would have to reasonably assume that a person over a certain age, certainly over 70, would be at greater risk.

The fact is, we'll probably never really know what happened here. If the 75 yo lady actually struck the officer with force (i.e. not just a slap) then perhaps the taser was justified.

Otherwise, there is no way that is was, but the police get away with this sort of bullshit every damn day.
