Tuscon, Arizona police are under fire for shoving an 86-year-old woman who was protesting Trump’s immigration policies on the streets of Tuscon on February. The woman, who was born in 1931, reportedly weighs less than 100 pounds and stands a mere 4 feet and 5 inches tall.

A 65-year-old woman, a retired schoolteacher, then tried to help the old lady up, but was immediately pepper sprayed by an officer, temporarily blinding her.

The protest started out peacefully but grew restless as protestors began interfering with rush hour traffic. Some protestors began exhibiting unruly force on police officers, even causing minor injuries to three officers.

According to Toronto Sun,

“One of the officers working to get a protester back to the sidewalk was assaulted by that protester,” Magnus said. “When the officer went to arrest this subject and place him in a patrol car for transport, he and the other officers who were assisting him were quickly surrounded by members of the crowd.”

Poor grandma. Shitty protesters pushed the officers to their limits and now the old bag will have to get another hip replacement.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
