Texas officer fatally shoots woman after struggle over Taser

A Texas officer fatally shot a woman moments after she seemed to say ’I’m pregnant’ in an altercation captured on video. The shooting happened in Baytown. An official said the officer was patrolling an apartment complex and attempted to arrest the 45-year-old woman, because she had outstanding warrants. The officer opened fire after the woman grabbed the officer’s Taser and used it against him.

Consider that most police user fired-prong Taser units that resemble pistols and it becomes much more likely the woman intended to shoot the cop dead with what was percieved as a deadly weapon. Even if not, Tasers are deadly if used incorrectly and especially so if the one being incapacitated is in possession of a loaded firearm. Nothing good can come from a person reaching for a policeman's armaments, of any variety. The cop was in the right to defend himself.
