    If I'm reading that correctly, the old lady threw a cup of water at the officer. That is assult, like it or not. Not saying he took the right measures, but he was justified, from terms of the law.

    Next time I throw a cup at someone, I'll expect to have my shoulder broken.

    Yes, nothing at all excessive about the amount of force used here

    I'm not a lawyer, but from my experiences, courts and the legal system in general place a lot of importance on actions taken compared to what a "reasaonable" person would have/should have done. It's not only the letter of the law that is important, but a comparison to what's reasonable.

    I know "reasonable" is very subjective, but I believe it is a very strong consideration in most court cases like these.

    "Her right shoulder and upper arm were fractured." Way to go! You showed her who's boss! Damn 84-year old woman. I hear those women born in 1925 are troublemakers.

    I would have knocked over her wheelchair and pee'd in her denture cup. It would all be reasonable.

    I agree. Who knows how it actually went down at this point. The media loves to over exaggerate things.

    Least amount of force necessary does ring a bell, however. He'll probably get a slap on the wrist and told to go to his room and think about what he's done and that will be that.

    Or induce a melee in a Detroit basketball arena where fans think they have a chance at clocking basketball players on the court who work out for a living..... Malice at the Palace baby!
