    • I can’t agree with you more. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. Once you put “military” style equipment into the hands of local law enforcement, you’re creating a mindset that there’s no going back from. People are beginning to wake up and the government now looks at the citizens as a threat. There is no other reason for militarizing the police.

      • Our grand Commander-In-Chief has declared that he wants a Civil Police Agency that is just as well equipped, just as powerful as the military. Why? Are we citizens just as dangerous as Al Queda?

        Perhaps this is the beginning of the euthanasia option of ObamaCare.

      • In the governments eyes, we are. The blinders are beginning to come off and people are realizing that they are being lied to and manipulated. The more people that wake up the less the government can get away with. Knowledge that is coming out now (in many areas) is just the tip of the iceberg but the tides are turning.

    • What police force was this? I’d like to write a few letters to congress about this incident. Things are really getting bad in this country.

      • if this was a 1 time thing it would be different ,but it is something that is happening over and over all around country
        god help us old people

      • Do you suppose Congress will do anything other than reply with a “Form Letter” to your outrage? As the Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS, and other serious incidences have illustrated, Congress is a Toothless Lion who talks a good story for the Press and takes no action.

      • I agree, the Congress is shirking their Constitutional duty and the mainstream media is just the “propaganda” arm of the government. However, we can’t just sit back and do nothing – then they’ve won without firing a shot. Fortunately today we have something that past generations did not, the internet. People are working very hard to uncover these stories and others (like myself) are working to spread this information to as many people as possible. The more people we reach the more power we have to bring about positive changes. Many great things have come about as a result of “grassroots” movements. We would not be the United States of America if a small portion of the original colonists didn’t rebel against the tyranny of King George. Don’t be discouraged, don’t let them win and NEVER GIVE UP.

    • Were he my Dad there would be some dead criminals with badges. Thugs with badges are out of hand and need some dying to learn respect.

      • Anyone in a position of authority who abuses the power given to them by “the people” should be held accountable and punished to the fullest extent of the law.

    • There was a time when candidates for the police forces were subjected to at least one psychological test and an evaluation to determine whether they would be good cops or bad cops.

      So many candidates failed that they changed the laws to let idiots wear police uniforms and when they get that tin badge, they begin to think they are higher than god. Higher than god, they have little compunction about tasering feeble old men and six year old girls, and then blasting them with beanbags at lethal distances because, after all, some of those cops are above god.

  1. Not surprising. Just one example of how Obamacare-less will treat U.S. Old Folks.
    Those murdering cops are too stupid to realize that some younger thug cop will get to give them a similar death. Don’t you just love Obamacare-less?

    • Obamacare IS a big problem but the militarization of the police started prior to this administration. The Republicans and Democrats share the blame equally. “We, the people,” have to stand up and loudly speak out about these incidents to let the politicians know we will not tolerate it.

      • We MUST make our voices heard. We can write to and call our elected officials and VOTE THEM OUT if they don’t make the necessary changes. Remember, THEY WORK FOR US, we don’t work for them. We put them in office and we can take them out. It may seem like a daunting task but the “longest journey begins with a single step”. We can share whatever information we receive with as many people as possible and ask them to share it as well but most importantly, we must never become complacent and we must NEVER GIVE UP. As long as we’re drawing breath, we’re NEVER too old to fight and we can NEVER submit to tyranny. God bless us all and give us strength.

      • You’re right that this has nothing to do with Obamacare specifically, but it’s indicative of how both parties are abusing their power and trampling on the rights of the citizens who have elected them. They’re more concerned with keeping their power and the money that comes along with it. They forget that the “people” gave them that power and the “people” can take it away.

    • Obama-care or Health Care Act has nothing to do with what happened to this older man. Stupid people that has no empathy for their elders and not brains to go with their braun is the results of stupid police action that should never be allowed. They should be tried and convicts of elder abuse and murder!

  3. No excuse. Each and every cop at that scene should be subjected to the same treatment they gave that old man, on national television. If he were my father, I would hunt every single cop down and make it right.

  4. I am 70 years old and I would want to know what, exactly, the operation was for and what effect it would have on me if I didn’t have the operation. Without those answers, I would refuse, just like he did.

    • I question every treatment or prescription any doctor recommends until I can research it or get a second opinion. If I don’t like what I hear, I refuse, just like this senior did. He didn’t break any laws, he just exercised his rights and you see what it got him.

  5. Just one more testament to the fact that our policemen continue to brutalize and harm innocent citizens like this elderly man. When will enough be enough of this type of behavior by those who have sworn to protect and to serve us?? I pray that true justice will come to those responsible for the death of this dear and honorable WW 2 Veteran.

    • This is why we must all stand up and speak out against each and every case of injustice we come across. There but for the grace of God, that could be you, me or any member of our families. We must take back our country.

    • I’m not surprised Roger but, unfortunately, it goes far beyond this administration. Democrats and Republicans alike have pushed for militarizing the police. They look at the American citizens as a threat to be controlled and managed. Now that people are beginning to wake up and smell the coffee, the politicians are unsettled and don’t know which way to turn. This is why we must keep pushing back and get out as much information as possible to as many people as possible.

  7. No matter what the circumstances, this is definetly the use of EXCESSIVE force !
    Why did the nursing home call the police? They are to blame.
    I hope they get the S. . . sued out of them and the Police.

    • That’s a very good question. If Mr. Wrana was upset and causing a problem, then why didn’t the nursing home staff sedate him? The employees in these facilities are trained to handle these situations. What went wrong in this case? That being said, it in no way excuses the outrageous actions of the police. Although they may feel that tazering and shooting bean bags is a “non-lethal” means of subduing someone, didn’t they stop to think that it might KILL an elderly, sick person? That’s the problem, they don’t think, they shoot and ask questions later. A lawsuit won’t bring Mr. Wrana back but both the police and nursing home SHOULD be sued and the police officers involved should be criminally charged with Negligent Homicide, relieved of duty and lose their pensions.

  8. They need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. This was totally uncalled for. Two police officers could have subdued a 95 year old man without the tazer, the riot gear, or the shotgun. This was murder.

  9. Reblogged this on Sarah's Voice and commented:
    Can you believe this??? This is going to put more parents on alert for when their challenge child has a meltdown of sorts. My gosh people! If this tradgidy could happen to this WWll War Hero, you better believe it can happen to anyone!

    • Parents of young children (challenged or not) should be very cautious as well. There’s been an increase in reports of elementary school children being arrested for various ridiculous reasons (because of the tee-shirt they wore, because they bought a water pistol to school, etc…) It seems that any challenge to authority is looked upon as an infraction of the law. Does this all sound familiar??? Can you say Nazi Germany?

      • I know it is so ridiculous!!!! Where are all of our so called human rights activists? You are right Nazi Germany! The very people that our War Hero fought against!

  10. “with the employees of the home reporting that they asked officers not to harm him and requested to intervene.”

    Then the police were called – why, again?

  11. I am DAV Marine VietVet and retired cop. I have been seeing things getting worse and worse with the FNGs as they are known. Myself and many many other former cops don’t know what to make of it. We weren’t afraid of getting hurt. We want through doors in full uniform two guys and sometimes even one. Now everything needs five patrol cars and swat teams and everything from assault vehicles to helicopters. It is really a shame how some of these FNGs treat people. This whole government is so far off its rocker it’s not funny. They scare the shit out of people with all this terrorist crap and then you see these heroes do this to 94 year old man. God help us all! They all ought to go find jobs selling postage stamps! The only real good about all this is that they will all be held accountable by The Lord!

    • I know exactly what you mean. The government is out of control and God will have the final say but we must stand up for our rights. As the saying goes “God helps those who help themselves”. As anthropologist, Dr. Margaret Mead, once said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does”

  12. Okay… All security and law enforcement personnel SHOULD get training on how to handle the elderly AND to use COMMON SENSE when the hospital/assisted living personnel are already stopping them!!! I smell a BIG lawsuit coming.

    • The lawsuits will be coming and rightfully so. However, when you give law enforcement military grade weapons and train them in military tactics, that tends to override all previous training and common sense. The next step to watch out for is an increased use of Martial Law (as we saw during the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bomber). This has nothing to do with “terror” or making the public “safer”, it’s all about CONTROLLING the public.

  13. I smell a BIG lawsuit coming… All security personnel, law enforcement SHOULD immediately get training on how to handle the elderly ESPECIALLY since the personnel were already trying to stop them!!!!

  14. This is one of the lowest things I have ever to hear that our tax dollars paid for. Fire EVER ONE of those bruits and sue their britches off. They have no right on God’s green earth to treat a citizen of this country in such a manner at ANY age!

  15. This is the exact kind of behavior that led me to leave the Police Force, I’m now in Fire/EMS and more proud of this service, the Police Departments nation wide have this “Us vs. Them” attitude which is justified in some cases but as a Law Enforcement Officer there are times when the “Tough Guy” thing is not needed, all this Vet wanted, was to be left alone and live out his life on his own terms. RIP, you served your country, now relax in Gods Loving arms!

    • I want to thank you, Len, for your service both in the Police Force and in Fire/EMT. First responders risk their lives daily and deserve our gratitude. It’s a sad turn of events that police forces across the country are now being militarized thanks to the hidden agenda of the Federal government. I’ve heard from many former police officers who share your reasons for leaving and who are horrified by what’s going on. “We the people” have now become the “enemy” in the eyes of our government.

      SWAT teams are being called out to apprehend lone suspects (sometimes unarmed) and innocent civilians are being treated like criminals. To call this “overkill” is an understatement. This is not the America of our Founding Fathers. Sanity must be restored.

  16. There are few times when I would want to be a lawyer but this is one of those times. Three members of my family were cops and my brother is still on the force after 35 years, many of which has been spent with swat. The guy who decided to use the bean bag was out of line and does not deserve to interact with the public in any capacity. The Department needs to be sued for this type of intervention and the officer needs to be fired immediately. This story makes me sick to my stomach irrespective of whether or not Department Policy requires “hands off” methods of dealing with problems. This is a disgusting overuse of power by the cops in this case.

    • I feel the same way you do. There is absolutely no excuse for the behavior of these officers. The nursing home is just as culpable for calling the police to begin with. They’re supposed to be trained to deal with these types of situations. They should lose their licensing and be closed down.

  17. At the beginning of this day; the police acted well out side of it’s authority, it’s wisdom and known professionalism. At the end f the day; God’s pissed.

  18. Justice must be served !!! These police deserve a SEVERE slap on the wrist, followed by a paid vacation…. the old veteran’s family can be billed $5,000 dollars for the call out- with additional bean bag fees, tazer recharging fees, with applicable compounded penalties & interest…
