US police officers are seen mocking a 73-year-old woman with dementia as they watch video of her shoulder going "pop" during her forcible arrest, according to footage released by her lawyer.

This is just gross.

There better be convictions at the end of this case, not just tax payer funded settlements.

This is what the police are trained to do: We train police to dehumanize and suppress a violator.

Nobody should be surprised by this. These cops are acting they way they're supposed to, based on their training.

Not surprised at all. Done all the time overseas and elsewhere by our own military-- dark skin light skin young kid or old grandma, doesn't matter.

Israelis who routinely do this sort of thing to Palestinians (again from kids - gradnmothers) nare brought over here on taxpayer $$$$ (or our officers are sent over there) to teach our officers to do the same:

Keep blowing the MIC and Israel, folks. Blowback is a bitch.

Nobody wants to defend these cops.

I guess the cops have to kill someone, to get certain people's attention around here.

That too is not a surprise.

Don't watch the video if you have a weak stomach.

Walmarts called the police because this woman started to walk out of the store with about $13-$14 worth of merchandise. Walmarts recovered their merchandise before she left the store. The police found her picking wildflowers as she was walking home. She was 4'10", 73 years old and weighted about 80 pounds or less. She was suffering from dementia.

For a tiny little thing, half their weight, she fought the police tooth and nail because she didn't understand why they were manhandling her. She kept saying "I'm going home." It took 2 cops with hogties to get her in the back of their police vehicle. She arrived at the police station with a dislocated shoulder, a broken humerus bone, a sprained wrist, bleeding and covered with bruises. It was two hours before the police got her medical attention.

Excess brutality? You decide.

BOAZ thinks this is great!

Damn freeloaders, trying to steal stuff.

Doesn't matter about the dementia, she's just weak.

Right BOAZ?

Want to slow the roll of creeps like these guys? Put them in general population for a week, and double bunk them. Most cons don't like cops and cops who beat up old ladies gain fewer friends inside. The word will get out that actions have consequences and police behavior will change...

Did he get her knee liquid?

If there's anything to karma they'll end up in the same cell with Chauvin.

How sad. I agree with Snoofy though. That is what they are trained to do. They are not trained to have compassion or how to humanly treat people. Time and again we see this kind of behavior with everyone from the young to the old. That isn't to say that is every officer out there or how they all act but it is FAR too many of them. I mean seriously laughing and joking about beating up a 73 year old tiny woman? How impressive...

The cop next to him the video from the police station did a good job of giving him enough rope to hang up himself with and got him to confess his intentions. Ideally, he should never carry a badge again, but he'll probably just apply at a different precinct, even if he's charged.

As for the woman with dementia, we need to know whether she believes in Covid or not before judging whether she deserved to be treated that way, right?

Shut up, SSentinel.

Is that a sore spot because you're one of those people who thinks they know better than the doctors and gets treated like crap because you're loud and antagonistic?

Enjoy your karma, Rexford. What goes around, comes around. If you don't have a problem with doctors treating people like crap because they perceive them to be inferior and beneath them, you shouldn't have a problem with cops doing it too.
