Re: [iPhone] Woman tasered after trying to buy too many iPhones

...That's complete racial discrimination! I hope she sues Apple big time!
That was a completely unsubstantiated allegation. It's one thing for political opportunists to throw the card, it's part of their playbook, it's another to toss it in here.
Racial bigotry doesn't appear to be the case here (although we do not have all the facts).
What support do you have for this? Did officer or employees hurl racial epithets?
It doesn't matter if it's Apple, Tiffanys or Taco Bell, if a customer is acting unruly and store personnel ask the person to leave... if they refuse, escalate the situation and create a public nuisance, store can and should call law enforcement.
I seriously doubt the employee called the police and said "hey, I have a _____ (fill in the blank) woman here...she refuses to leave ... bring a SWAT team and let's have some fun!"
Leave the sleazy race card out of this discussion.
