I saw the video of the boy/man being tipped out of his wheelchair and I was horrified!

I don't care what he did against the law, he didn't deserve to be dumped out on the floor. Yes, one laughed too.

They should both be fired and the w/c should push a lawsuit. Unbelievable what is going on in the world today!

I don't care if a person is behaving like a complete ass. The police are still supposed to treat them decently. I know it must be hard for them sometimes, but there is no excuse for behavior like that.
