Wheelchair-bound old lady tasered to death

A crazed woman armed to the teeth is not to be taken lightly. If, however, she's 56 years old and in a wheelchair, you'd like to think the cops could find a better solution than shocking her to death.
Around 5 p.m. Monday, cops in Green Cove Springs, Florida got a call that an old woman had gone crazy. When they arrived at the scene, police found wheelchair-bound Emily Delafield brandishing two knives and a hammer at family members.
The cops tried to calm her down, but Delafield wouldn't listen to reason. Feeling as though they were out of options, one of the cops pulled out his taser and launched 50,000 volts of juice into the four-wheeled maniac. She immediately lost consciousness.
Delafield was rushed to the hospital, but to no avail, she was soon dead.
The two officers involved are on paid administrative leave pending the results of an investigation, including Delafield's autopsy.
