22. So now we know the woman's name. We need the name of the trooper.

I find his treatment of Ms. Northington completely out of line. It is obvious by the video that, although she was surprised at the fact that she's being arrested, she was trying to cooperate.

I'm 54 and I don't move as fast as I did when I was 25. It would be appropriate and would be common sense for a level-headed state trooper to give a 72 year old woman a few seconds to stand and move, particularly knowing that the woman had been in a sitting position for some time. His yanking her up and around is unbecoming for a trooper with the Department of Public Safety of Texas.

How much does anyone want to bet that the trooper votes Republican?
