Police Arrest Paraplegic Man For Considering Himself a Pedestrian

So much of this lately the stories are running together.

A male officer ordered him to stand up, Dodson recalled. “I said, ‘I can’t stand up. That’s why I’m in this wheelchair.’”

A second officer literally slammed the paralyzed man face-first on the ground and handcuffed him behind his back, the Roanoke Times reported.

Mr. Dodson was charged with driving the wrong way, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. He was taken to jail on a stretcher and his scooter was impounded. His bond was set at $1,000.

What!!! Why Didn't They Put Four Slugs Into That Criminal

That's outrageous! They must be getting soft on crime. He should have been wasted for questioning the almighty state..

I'm so disappointed...

No need for the dash cam video, I trust my state police implicitly..

These cops

should be thrown into a wood chipper.

Who's next, frail seniors?

"I can't stand up without it."

Logically It Follows

...that he should also have been charged with operating his 'vehicle' in the grocery store he had just shopped in.

Thankfully the grocery store is private property

And the bullies have no jurisdiction there unless summoned by the grocery store owner or employees.
