Cops Break Disabled Teen’s Arm Arresting Him (VIDEO)

Don’t Forget The “Protect” Part of “Serve & Protect” Officers

Kristin Tate over at Ben Swann is reporting on a story from Rotterdam, New York where police officers were caught on camera breaking a disabled teen’s arm while placing him under arrest.

Police had responded to a call by Mohonasen transportation to help with a disturbed young man who was refusing to exit the vehicle. The driver apparently called officers because she reported that he had threatened her.

Officers are seen attempting to convince the teenager to exit, but he remained unresponsive in his seat. In the video one officer is heard saying, “Either you or one of us might get hurt and we don’t want to do that.”

Tate reports that the boy’s family is suing the town police for $1 million dollars and the family attorney issued a statement that read: “When the boy did not respond quick enough for the police, which is typical for the boy’s type of condition, rather than call mental health professionals or wait for the EMTs, the police told the boy that they were going to ‘hog-tie’ him… With clearly excessive force, exerted enough force to snap one of the strongest bones in his body. That’s not how mentally handicapped people are to be treated.”

    In before you weren’t there, you don’t know what its like to be a cop.

    Since we have alot people that dont understand the “In before” joke. I was commenting that I was In before idiots would start saying things like “You weren’t there, you don’t know what its like to be a cop”

    I have to side with the cops on this one. They clearly weren’t trying to hurt the kid. If they were angry they did not show it and I don’t think they acted upon it. Even if the kid’s arm was broken by some freak twist, he was a freaking drama queen. I broke bones as a teenager and I didn’t scream like that.

    Heck, I watched it a second time and as soon as the kid stopped squirming and starting walking out, the cop let go with his right arm and gently grabbed with his left. It is as if the cop felt he could deescaluate the force. Maybe the kdi’s arm did break and the cop sensing this immediatly reduced the amount of force he was using. Good for him. Based upon this one video, that’s a good cop.
