Dayton police "mistook" a mentally handicapped teenager's speech impediment for "disrespect," so they Tasered, pepper-sprayed, beat him and called for backup from "upward of 20 police officers" after the boy tried to ride his bicycle home to ask his mother for help in communicating.

This is unbelievable. We need to start keeping a community watch on Police officers at all times!

Agreed but…Look, we all have cell phones with cameras. Despite this, nothing changes. They just beat us harder. They just let the cop out of jail who murdered Oscar Grant. That murder was caught on several cell phones and presented as evidence. He was out in less than a year.

Apple has now created technology to block cell phone video recording. Guess who is going to have that tech in the squad car?  

This happened to a guy here in Olympia as well. His name is Scott. He was dumpstering down town. The cops came up on him and told him to stop and started asking him questions. Scott cannot speak and so must use either sign language (which the cop couldn’t understand) or writing on a note pad (which the cop grabbed out of his hand thinking he was going to disrespect him by communicating that way). He called in back up and beat the shit out of Scott.

In related news, as most people know, a deaf Native wood carver was shot to death last summer in Seattle. He couldn’t hear the cop tell him to drop the ‘weapon’ and thought it a valid response to shoot him. 

In London during the education demonstrations/riots this past winter, the LPD dragged an activist with cerebral palsy out of his wheel chair and beat him.. not just once during the coarse of the demonstration but twice.

these are 4 examples of police brutality towards those impaired. There are hundreds of other cases of this, i’m sure. THis really needs to be brought to light more. 

^^^^All of this. There are so many of these cases and it’s enraging and heartbreaking.
