This goes under the category of "this can't be true." I don't care what the circumstances were. You just don't taser an 80 year old woman. To make it worse, she broke her hip when she fell and we all know what a broken hip means to a person of this age. According to the article, she suffers from dementia, speaks little English and had a kitchen knife. What was the cop thinking? How could an 80 year old woman be a threat to 3 cops who are probably less than 1/2 her age and twice her size unless she had a gun?
