ARIZONA COP ATTACKS AND BODY SLAMS QUADRUPLE AMPUTEE CHILD IN STATE HOME
So it seems that we hear news like this all too often. Police using excessive force. But we can’t also forget that police can also be amazing human beings, all the more so for carrying a badge. But this story is about the worst possible example I’ve seen of late. It’s not just excessive force. It’s a total abrogation of professional conduct and basic decency. How else can you understand a Pima County cop physically attacking a child who has no arms or legs? Because that’s not hyperbole. It’s not even an exaggeration. A person working to server and protect physically attacked a minor who has no limbs. Seriously, who body slams kids? Well, cops. But this time, it’s a child with no limbs.
ABANDONED 15-YEAR-OLD HAD TANTRUM, KNOCKED OVER GARBAGE, SO COP BODY SLAMS CHILD
So no, the child is not injured or dead. But that’s not the point. This isn’t about measuring the impact of a tragedy. It’s not about dancing in a grey area of police conduct, questioning what really happened. But it is really simple. At no time was the Pima County deputy in any danger at the state run boys home in Tucson, Arizona. And the only reason we know this is so simple is that a lot of what happened is on video. And some background? This child’s parents abandoned him. He is a quadruple amputee. He is homeless and is a ward of the state of Arizona. And, he is 15 years old. This child with no limbs was supposedly out of control and had knocked over a trash can.
ATTACKING COP THEN SLAMS CHILD’S HEAD AGAINST WALL OVER VIDEO RECORDING
So yeah. That’s right. A child whose parents left him behind, with no limbs, had a bad day at a state run boys home. Imagine that. So the people running the home called police for help. And that’s how all this happened. So what happened? A police office tackled and body slams a boy, already on the floor because he has no legs or arms. Then the office laid down upon the child, which is only about power and humiliation. But it’s also about authority. Because, a child with no limbs is clearly a threat and takes a lot of effort to…. subdue. Then, the police there turned to the child’s friend who recorded it all. They also detained him and put him in handcuffs.
And, last but not least, the cop who attacked the limbless child also slammed the video recorder’s head against a wall. Btw, here’s the video from Pima County.
