Police use Taser on 87-year-old woman cutting dandelions with a knife

Two Chatsworth officers along with Police Chief Josh Etheridge arrived at the scene, and repeatedly asked Al-Bishara, to drop the knife, according to the police report. "Her demeanor was calm, even when we had our guns out," an officer noted in the police report.
Officers began making hand gestures to indicate dropping a knife, but the woman still did not comply, the report states.
Etheridge told CNN affiliate WTVC that he took a knife from his pocket, showed it to Al-Bishara, and "threw my knife down on the ground, trying to make her understand what we wanted her to do."
At that point, Al-Bishara began to walk toward the group and did not react when one of the officers turned on his Taser, according to the police report.
"The female did not react to the Taser being on, or the white light coming from the end of the Taser," the reporting officer noted.
When Al-Bishara was approximately five yards away, still holding the knife in her hand, the officer fired his Taser and struck her in the chest, according to police. Officers then helped her to her feet, and placed her in handcuffs.https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/16/us/georgia-police-taser-woman-dandelions-knife/index.html?no-st=1534514526

Dandelions have rights! Something is kind of missing in this story...like where was she doing this, why were the police called?  All we see is a little old lady with a lesion in the middle of her chest.  CNN is the source...they probably plant this story to stir up people.

But she was armed with a kitchen knife, 87 years old and maybe weighs 100 pounds...we don't know how scary that must have been for a couple of trained police officers.  <sarcasm>
