US police mock dementia sufferer during arrest - BBC News

138 764 दृश्य

US police officers are seen mocking a 73-year-old dementia sufferer as they watch video of her shoulder going "pop" during her forcible arrest, according to footage released by her lawyer.
Karen Garner was detained on 26 June last year after she walked out of a Walmart in the state of Colorado without paying for $13 of items.
Her elbow was fractured and shoulder dislocated, says her attorney.

  • It amazes me how you guys in the UK treat cops over there. Your cops are saints compared to American cops. Over here cops can steal your money, physically attack you and even shoot and kill you with impunity even if you're completely innocent. I've found UK cops to be very professional and courteous even with criminals.

  • This is inhumane to the core. Irrespective of whether she had dementia or not, the officer had ho right to use excessive force on a fragile defenseless 73 year old woman.

  • Wtf is going on here?! Law enforcement. Things aren’t great for your reputation currently & I honestly do feel for the DECENT cops. But this is not an example of anything that resembles decent/good/reasonable law enforcement. These are cops deserving of being fired. To be that rough on an unarmed, elderly, mentally disabled woman is beyond comprehension to reasonable people & then to laugh at & mock her?!! Disgusting.These officers justifiably deserve being referred to as PIGS

  • The dislocation of her shoulder was NOT an accident I learned. The department teaches their officers to escalate encounters with the public if their orders are not complied with fast. The attorney representing the Garner family also represented Preston Sowl who was falsely arrested thrown to the ground and had his shoulder dislocated. Of course in this case the situation by going public created public outrage because there was no reason to use any force on a person that petite weighing 80 lbs, and disabled, frail and elderly.

  • Ha ha ha, that video is sooooo cute & funny, the way they rough up and terrify her culminating in an audible "pop" in her shoulder, not to mention the fractured arm and handcuffs making her wrists bleed for 6 hours with an unattended dislocated shoulder and broken arm... Ha ha, har dee har, used to do the same to my grandma, ha ha ha, so funny. And I'don't at all utterly detest those three, even the new female cadet who, though immersed in a culture of knuckle-scraping jingoism, went well beyond failing to exercise her own free will and do the bottom line basic right thing by not laughing at the body cam video... She had already failed the initial very basic decency test by failing to refrain from roughing the old lady up and painfully twisting her fractured arm attached to a dislocated shoulder... Once she failed that one, we set a new low- Will she laugh at the body cam footage, which includes an jarring "pop" that the first officer so relishes in?? ... (drum roll) "Yessss she did, UMerka!, clearly the land of unbounded intelligence and decency"... No way, I don't utterly despise any of them at all, they give rednecks a really good name, UMERKA!

And from press conference with police chief he seems to still be taking no responsibility a year later, plus said others involved resigned. Most likely with perks ???.imo This would have never seen light of day but for the family suing. I really hope this stays in the media and appropriate action taken on those responsible for this barbaric act

  • It is clearly evident, that psychopathy is prevalent in US police forces. Psychopaths should not be allowed to be police officers. Psychopathy is genetic, it can be tested. Police brutality will continue to happen, unless this problem is addressed,

  • For all the people in the comments who are basing how we do our policing in the US over a small Probably less than a percent of the people in the profession can shove off. The reason why we are getting the bad rap that we are is because of the media and of course there are going to be a couple bad apples in a bunch. Don't act like you don't have them where you live. People making comments like that are the reason Why our country or sorry my country is going down the toilet.

This happened about a year ago. If a concerned citizen didn't confront the officers, with words and by filming the incident, these disgusting pigs would still be doing this to somebody else. I hope they end up in jail for this. The poor woman is haunted by this incident.

Police officers raping women and degrading men in jail cells while detention officer strip searching police officer standing on side watching laughing. Police officers killing restraining improperly. They rough house yank people around. This is getting out of hand! Crooked Cops everywhere! There sworn to protect and serve the community not be jack A's think there above everyone. Shame on these officer's!

These officers need sacking, but I blame the chain of command.

  • Keep in mind that the female officer did NOT find this funny or entertaining. She could barely watch it. That's why she was promoted to the position that the middle guy's job. The one on the end didn't seem too into the video either, although he did laugh awkwardly. I had a couple of white cops as friends in the past, they seem like good guys I wonder what they are thinking now or if the one who isn't retired, may be retired now. I changed my mind on the female officer, I watched more footage and saw her asking his approval in part in it. She is just as guilty. We try to teach our kids to stand up to bullies even if they are not getting bullied. That's very hard to do. I know, I did it in middle school. I couldn't stand up to my own bullies, but I stood up to someone else's even though they were mine too. It is easier for me to see stand up for others than myself.

  • What a big bad man he is….such a leader in moral fortitude for pointing out he popped her shoulder out of socket and having a laugh with his other “Hazard county deputies” laughing along with him. Seriously…..What a tough guy….he wanted to do that to her. You can see she is a senior and that something isn’t clicking with her meaning she may have a mental issue and yet….This supercop who just had to protect Walmart and catch this elderly criminal and return the 14 dollars she took so Walmart wouldn’t go broke. That Walmart should be boycotted for their wanna be cops knowing or being able to tell she was ill and making sure all this happened. I certainly hope this super tough guy cop meets someone that beats him down and shows him what it’s like to be laughed at when your the victim of a bully. This guy was a bully with a gun and his boss swept it under the rug. His ass needs a conspiracy charge against him for protecting these these scumbag cops. This beyond absurd and can’t even make this up for a bad movie. Just total trash is that chief and that whole department. What heroes they are for their “protecting and serving” the public and defending Walmart’s rights….Who defended her rights? We find out about this a year later and want to be sickened even more? It took these keystone cops a whole six hours to get her medical attention and even then, as my understanding, it wasn’t them that got it for her….Let this sink in, if you aren’t angry as hell and want blood for this, imagine it was your mother or grandmother that slips in and out of reality and they were brutalized over their memory slipping away….This is on a level of Gestapo,Stazi or KGB and never thought it would happen so openly here and like the mentioned evil doers, covered up and kept quiet until of course, the shit hits the fan and everyone knows, it could’ve been mom or grandmother. Happy Mother’s Day….I hope this bully pig burns in hell.

  • The real underlying issue here is that the police officer doesn’t even think once about slamming the lady to the ground and forcing her arms up her back to make the arrest, even with his body cam running. This is America’s fundamental issue, the police are allowed to act like that and largely get away with it. The officer doesn’t consider he is doing anything wrong due to the fact that the level of violence used by American police is insane. When they murder ppl daily, dislocating an old frail ladies shoulder during a ‘legitimate’ arrest, will not be seen as an issue. This is shown in the callous way the officer is able to sit there and watch the video, joking and laughing. It also speaks to the desensitised nature of the police to unnecessary violence and lack of understanding for mental health and medical issues. Any normal human would be terribly upset if they had accidentally and necessarily hurt a frail old lady like that. This officer had purposefully and unnecessarily injured the poor woman, and was then able to sit and watch and laugh at it with no remorse. It’s literally inhuman. Either USA is filled with devil ppl, or the police are trained to be violent and callous, with no remorse, comeback or conscience for anything they do. Inhuman

    • Because they didn't show the part where she was fist bumping and having a lot of fun at the victim's expense. She said things like "I could watch body cam livestreams all day. It's like tv." She and the arresting officer discussed the female officer's opportunities for jumping in on the action, her wishing she could have been more hands on with the suspect, and male cop apologizing for pushing her out of the way and hogging all the fun of the elderly woman's violent arrest. She had watched the video, and had obviously enjoyed it, for a long time. this was only near the end when she finally started saying she hated it.

When they start having to pay for their own insurance and DUMP THE EVIL UNION, it will cut a lot of crap out. They lose insurance for bad conduct, NO ONE will rehire them. A person only has to score a 33 to 35 on an ASVAB test for the military! It's the LOWEST scoring position while still being able to join! These people get out and go into police work having been able to shoot whoever they damn well pleased in Afganistan or Iraq without consequences! Trump pardoned one of these worthless slimes.
