Should a police department ever have to explain why they tased an 87-year-old woman?
The police chief of a small Georgia town is defending an officer who deployed a stun gun on a “smiling” 87-year-old woman, saying she refused to comply with numerous commands to put down a kitchen knife she was using to cut dandelions.
He said there is police body-camera footage of the incident, but he has yet to release it because charges against the woman are pending.
It’s not that the public doesn’t deserve an explanation. It’s that there is seldom any reason to deploy that type of force against 5’2″ 87-year-old. But that’s what Chatsworth Georgia Police Chief Josh Etheridge had to do after one of his officer’s tased the woman during a “confrontation” behind the local Boys and Girls Club.
President Trump has instructed staff to move forward with the next round of tariffs on Chinese goods
The tariffs are expected to apply to about $200bn worth of imports from China, including electronic parts and consumer goods such as handbags which could be as high as 25%.
President Trump ordered his staff to start preparing the tariffs this summer, escalating a dispute over what the US says are China's unfair trade practices, such as state subsidies.
The new duties would add to tariffs the US has already imposed on $50bn in Chinese goods as part of that dispute, as well as tariffs that China levied on $50bn in US goods in retaliation.
