    Too bad they didn't add "proof of citizenship status"!

    Yeah, then we would have to pick our own vegetables and take jobs instead of draining welfare dry! I see people on food stamps with 8 kids complaining about "Mexicans"!

    When I get pulled over, I have my driver's license in hand before the officer even gets to my window. This woman was just being obstinate.

    If "mentally unstable" equals poor judgement and being obstinate, I guess she might fit that definition?

    IIRC in Texas, one can drive until they are 95, after that they can still get a DL, but the requirements are more stringent. Is an older persons reflexes worse as they age? I'd say yes they are, I'm not near her age, but I'm not as quick as I was at one time. Politicians aren't quick to pass legislation to deter older folks from driving, they'd lose a large block of voters if so.

    Repeat, I'm not defending her but I've seen and experienced unreasonable decision-making in older folks like that many times. Whoever you may be, nurse, doctor, cashier, or leo, sometimes a bit of patience will get you a long way with them.

    Ditto, here. Though I rarely get pulled over. Particularly during this transitional period (CHL's), everyone's learning the ropes. Just seems like common sense to avoid being seen as doing a great imitation of a felon reaching quickly for a weapon. Keeps things nice, orderly and calm ... as it should be.

    The entitlement society gone awry, IMO.

    So many seem to feel entitled to partake of any activity when/where desired, to disrespect others at will, to disregard legitimate lawful authority, to harm others. I'm betting she had no decent parenting and mentoring while being raised, instilling the character foundation that would help keep her sane and whole for a lifetime.

    Kinda reminds me of a lady that truly believes she's above the law and, 'how dare he pull me over during the course of my day, I gotta pee!'...

    Kinda reminded me of an older loudmouthed female cousin of mine. That fact may of unduly influenced my reaction of full support for the officer. I have wanted to do something like that to her ever since she babysit for me when I was a child.

    Absolutely, and she might not even realise. There's a reasonable chance that she's suffering from age-related dementia, which erodes the ability to self-assess. This means that she might not actually deserve our antipathy; and this might have very little to do with her previous decades of life. Of course, we don't have enough information about her background; but the odds are non-trivial. 13.9 percent of people age
    71 and older in the United States have dementia.

    I love the gaping mouth she had when she was being pulled from the car. Arrogance turned to disbelief! Priceless!
