Last June, Karen Garner sat handcuffed to a bench inside a booking cell weeping and in pain.


No one had come to treat her fractured arm and dislocated shoulder hours after Loveland, Colo., police violently arrested the 73-year-old with dementia, her family said.

Meanwhile, about 10 feet away, three officers sat hunched around a computer as they re-watched body-camera footage of Garner’s arrest, a new video released by the attorney representing Garner’s family shows.

“Ready for the pop? Hear the pop?” the officer who initially handcuffed Garner can be heard saying, referencing the moment he injured her shoulder.

The nearly one-hour booking cell video released Monday shows two Loveland Police Department officers who participated in Garner’s arrest fist-bumping each other while discussing the incident. At one point, they are joined by another officer as they mock and praise the arrest, which they claimed “went great,” while referring to Garner as “ancient,” “senile” and “flexible.”.................................

On Tuesday, a Loveland police spokesman said four officers including Austin Hopp, the first to handcuff Garner, have been suspended. The criminal investigation will be conducted by McLaughlin’s office and the Fort Collins Police Department................................

............

Garner’s family, which filed a federal lawsuit against the city and three of the officers two weeks ago, has since filed an amended complaint adding two more Loveland officers for allegedly failing to intervene or provide medical care to Garner based on the recently released booking video.

Prosecutors open criminal probe into police who allegedly broke the arm of a 73-year-old woman with dementia

Police aggressively arrested the 80-pound woman as she was plucking purple wildflowers and strolling back home on June 26. They had been called after she left a Walmart without paying for items worth $13.88, according to her family’s lawsuit. Walmart said employees called the police after Garner allegedly pulled off an employee’s mask during the incident.

12. What about the Aurora CO Police

Department who dragged a totally drugged out person from a car, and as the person laid motionless on the ground a canine cop ordered his dog to bite the person on their thigh over and over and over. The person still wasn't moving and at one point the handler shoves the dogs face into their leg and yells at the dog to attack, until it does. Then the cop has the dog hold on and shakes it's head repeatedly.

The Aurora PD also covered up this malicious act despite the cop camera's videoing the entire sickening attack... The Chief said it was "within policy" and didn't discipline any of the cops.

Where do the Police Departments get all of these sadistic psychopaths??????? It sure doesn't say much for the psychological screening that they supposedly go thru before being hired.........

16. AND

Aurora Co City Council is facing or have already had a bunch of payouts for the Aurora PD's numerous brutality actions this past year. (they were all for atrocious behavior by their cops)

Denver is also facing or have already had a a bunch of payouts for PD brutality actions.....I remember that DPD brutality at a demonstration last year is being looked into by the FEDS it was so egregious......The members of the Colorado State Patrol, (a great group of good guys) were scampering around trying to protect the demonstrators from the DPD's atrocious amount of unjustified force......

Being an old guy, I remember when Denver Cops were looked up to, except for a few rogue cops on the force...(Buster Snider, etc) and the DPD went after them.......I know there are some good cops on Denver and Aurora, but the bad apples are overwhelming them....
It is very sad to me, being a native of Denver and watching this out of control number of cops doing bad instead of good......

18. it blows my mind that police forces would rather keep paying out millions in compensation

for their victims rather than change how they freaking police.

6. There needs to be legislation requiring psychiatric evaluation

Psychopaths and sadists need to be rooted out before they end up cops.

11. its the SYSTEM - it produces this behaviour on purpose

https://www.simplypsychology.org/milgram.html

Milgram suggested that two things must be in place for a person to enter the agentic state:

1) The person giving the orders is perceived as being qualified to direct other people’s behavior. That is, they are seen as legitimate.
2) The person being ordered about is able to believe that the authority will accept responsibility for what happens.

Agency theory says that people will obey an authority when they believe that the authority will take responsibility for the consequences of their actions. This is supported by some aspects of Milgram’s evidence.

8. Infuriating! Jail the cruel bully!

As someone who had a ripped ralotator cuff from a stupid accident at a healthy 38 and a mom at ?83 who had a dislocated shoulder but who still had a strong ligament attached so it took a while at the nursing home to realize she had it because she could do so much until she finally couldn't because of increasing pain...

there are a few good cops in America. The narrative that most cops are good looks false to me.

10. All civil law suit should be paid out the department budget.

Let the police defund themselves. The only way to break the blue line is to have it cost the cop some of his pay for protecting crooked gang members.

17. Abolish qualified immunity. Make them personally liable - criminally AND financially.


Why should taxpayers and local homeowners have to pay for their crimes?
