Over the weekend I had a chance to sit down and watch the news on CNN and MSNBC, I stayed away from Fox News because they had some chick on that was driving me insane. Seeing people get crazy on Twitter due to the lack of coverage by CNN of the Iran Elections, I decided to see what was going on and flip between the two news stations.
I try to avoid watching the news on TV since it usually just seems to bring me down, unless there is a story that really grabs me I stick to reading one of the local papers. You very rarely see any positive anything from the huge outlets like CNN, MSNBC and Fox News and local news really isn’t that much beter, I do like the TBT because they do have a pretty funny persepective on some of the BS news that goes on around the world, Tampa Bay and of course in Celebrity news.
Anyway, before I get off track and miss the entire post I need to get focused and get back to some of the Disgusting News that I unfortunately sat through over the weekend. Each of the topics below piss me off for their own reasons, I will hold off on my comments the best I can and leave the commenting up to you, I am curious as to your opinions on each of the news stories below. Don’t hold back.
New Police Sport? Texas Cop Tasers 72 Year Old Great Grandmother
In short this 72 year old woman was pulled over for a routine traffic violation and became difficult when the officer returned to deliver her traffic citation. As you will see in this video an argument of sorts followed and the Grandmother was Tased. This brings up a few very good points of discussion in my opinion, was the Granny out of line or should the Police Officer have used a different approach in resolving this situation, leave a comment and share your thoughts with everyone.

It seems that this Ambulance driver was pulled over by a Tennessee Police Officer, with a woman stashed away in the back needing medical attention, well I assume she needed medical attention based on the fact she was in the back of the Ambulance. Anyway, this video was actually made by one of the woman’s family members who was also traveling in the Ambulance at the time, the video below is of the Tennessee Police Officers dash cam view of the altercation that followed.
