A disruptive “Walmart Karen” who reportedly trashed a Dallas Walmart learned the hard way that there’s no winning against the police.
A video recording of the altercation between the unnamed “Karen” and an unnamed officer shows the officer demanding that she get on her knees.
In response, the so-called “Karen” replies, “You’re going to respect me whenever I [unintelligible] in this place.”
The officer then demands one last time that she get on her knees.
“Yeah, YOU will,” the unnamed woman replies.
That’s when the officer fires a taser and the “Karen” immediately shrieks as she crashes into a pole and then into the ground like a felled tree.

The officer then tases her again after the stubborn “Karen” refuses to put her hands behind her back.
The clip has since gone uber-viral and attracted a mountain’s worth of ruthless mockery at the woman’s expense.

It’s not clear when this happened. What’s known is that the video seen above appeared on Twitter last Tuesday.
What’s also known is that Walmart “Karens” are apparently a dime a dozen. In fact, a similar incident occurred at an Arizona Walmart just a week earlier. This time the “Karen” was a shoplifter, and when she was confronted by the police, she too refused to follow orders.
“[P]olice say the woman ignored the officer’s commands and refused to be handcuffed,” according to local station KTVK.
“What are you doing? I haven’t even left the store!” she yelled while on the ground as the arresting officer tried to cuff her.
“They’re f–king crazy! This cop is like tackling me,” she then screamed into her phone.
“The officer tried to turn the woman around on the ground, but she resisted and continued talking on the phone. It is unknown if she was actually on the phone with anyone,” KTVK notes.
Watch body cam footage of the encounter below:
The officer eventually started tasing her — up to 14 times, according to local police spokesperson Gina Winn.
“The electroshock weapon was set to ‘drive stun,’ Winn says, which causes pain but not incapacitation. Winn added the weapon was activated 14 times for a total of about 10 seconds. However, this does not mean she was shocked continuously for 10 seconds or 14 times. The video shows the officer using the taser some of the time, and the longest continuous shock lasted about 3 seconds,” according to KTVK.
“Once the officer was able to fully handcuff the woman, he noticed she was having a medical issue and contacted paramedics. Sgt. Randy Stewart says a taser using its probes, which would attach to the upper and lower body, could cause a medical episode. However, he said the shock didn’t cause the medical issue. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital and was shortly released and booked into Glendale jail.”
Another incident happened at a Florida Walmart back in April after a woman reportedly high on meth, Brandy Joe McGowan, started threatening customers and employees with a brick and knife.
“[A] manager said that McGowan opened a packet containing a pocket knife. He tried to take the packet from her, but she managed to open it and get the knife, he said. In his account, McGowan pointed the knife at the manager and told him he better stay back. She then walked to the clothing section as employees tried to calm her down,” as reported by Law & Crime.
When Deputy Christopher Witte arrived at the scene, she reportedly also denied killing her family. Authorities believe she’d been out of her mind and that her remarks weren’t in reference to anything that’d actually happened.
Regardless, when Witte demanded she drop the knife, she refused to comply, prompting him to eventually tase her. She too wound up collapsing to the ground like a felled tree.
“Authorities said they took the 32-year-old woman to a hospital for evaluation. She was booked into the Marion County Jail on Thursday, and is being held in lieu of a $1,000 bond. McGowan faces a count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. According to the probable cause affidavit, the store manager said that Walmart did not want to pursue retail theft charges,” Law & Crime notes.
