She clearly resisted arrest for several minutes,
So a small, middle aged woman managed to resist arrest for several minutes? Wow. Those cops should be ashamed of themselves. Really, how did cops survive 10 years ago? Did they all get sound ass kickings from tiny middle aged women?
Seriously, if you can't arrest someone like that without a taser, then you're so badly trained that you should not be allowed out on the street.
Well, the same rules should apply regardless of who they're arresting. As a 6'4" guy who works out regularly I fully expect that if the police ever decide to arrest me for anything I'm likely to get maced and beaten simply because I'm a big guy, the same should be done to short skinny women as well, maybe then people will care.
The next step would be for bouncers at bars and clubs to apply the same standards to both men and women (here in Sweden I have myself experienced being told that I needed to "calm down" and that I'd had too much to drink after my first beer of the night because, well I'm not sure, but minutes later several very drunk young women were dancing on chairs and rather than getting threats of violence from the bouncer while he held his hand on his baton he simply calmly asked them not to dance on the chairs)...
