They also pepper-sprayed her and beat her.  On June 9, 2003, Eunice Crowder was home when a city official came to clean up her messy yard. When Crowder objected, he called the police. The Portland Oregonian reported that Crowder, who claimed to be hard of hearing, ignored police commands and tried to climb into a city truck to retrieve her possessions. The police claimed that when they tried to stop Crowder, she kicked at them. That's when they peppersprayed her and used the taser. Then they handcuffed Crowder's arms and yelled at her to stand up. "And she says, 'I bet you wouldn't yell at your mom like that,' " her lawyer, Ernest Warren Jr., told a radio station. One of the officers responded, "My mom is seventy-four." She said, "Well, I'm seventy-one." In 2004, Crowder agreed to the $145,000 settlement from the city of Portland. The police department admitted no wrongdoing."We don't have age restrictions" for use of tasers, says Pashley of the Portland Police Department. But he says that policy is currently "under review." http://www.progressive.org/mag_amctaser retrieved 06/10/2016 Wweek:  Police Beat James Chasse to Death (2006/09/17)) http://www.wweek.com/portland/article-23444-sept-17-2006-police-beat-james-chasse-to-death.html https://www.wweek.com/news/courts/2018/03/08/six-more-protesters-sue-the-portland-police-for-increasingly-militarized- tactics-that-left-them-bloodied-and-bruised/
