    Where the hell does he charge his wheelchair if he doesn’t have a home?

    • quartz99

      The shelter most likely. He probably qualifies for medicaid… which is a good thing because he looked in the video like he was hurt fairly badly by the cops and will be needing medical treatment. Depending on what put him in the wheelchair they may have made his condition even worse by pulling him out and thrashing him around like that. If it was a spinal cord injury or one of a few other things, he probably has grounds to sue them for future medical bills (assuming there’s a pro bono lawyer willing to take the case), and I hope he does.

    There was an article on Disinformation just a little bit ago called “Jon Ronson on How to Spot A Psychopath”

    This is how you spot a psychopath. Unless like him, I’m seeing them everywhere now too.

    What piss me off more is that nobody do nothing to stop them! Freakin cattle!

      no offense but really? You’re gonna jump in and pull some cops off of a dude? That’ll go over real well for you I’m sure.

      if they tried to stop the police with force they would probably be beaten up and arrested.

    • quartz99

      It would be illegal for them to interfere directly and then the cops would be in the right (legally, not morally) to deploy force. I’m kind of surprised but somewhat heartened that people were actually standing there yelling at the cops. Often they just get to do whatever the hell they want without protest.

      Until one of these days it’s going to be one shove, one tazing, one beating too many, and there will be a crowd of onlookers who riot and lynch the cops involved on the spot. I feel like we’re edging closer to that every day…

        I’m still surprised that the Metrocops didn’t go after the person who recorded this incident.

        • quartz99

          Me too. Then again, it sounds like there was a whole crowd by that point and they were seriously outnumbered. They might be going about it the quiet way, by pressing charges against him.

      I understand how you feel, but if you were there and you tried to help, you wouldn’t have written this post because you would be either dead or fighting for you life in a hospital.  Those cops would kill you.

    And yet, this is probably the least surprising incident caught on camera of police brutality. Those damn wheelchair terrorists strike again.

    assaulting an officer “really”..If this guy can assault you ,you are not worthy enough to be a cop…these two looked like real pussies..Time to up the standerds

      Please keep in mind that there is a difference between the Metrocops (whose jurisdiction is the WMATA system and some of the sidewalks around bus stops and Metro station entryways (about a 50 foot radius)) and the DC police force.  They’re not the same.

    I know this area (on U St.). Both the Legal Clinic for the Homeless and the Public Welfare Foundation are in the building literally right next door to where this happened. They’ll be hearing about this, if they haven’t already.

      Looks like they have.

    There is something about cameras and cops throwing people from wheelchairs that go together real well. We’ve seen this before not too long ago.

    I’m astonished and impressed by the self restraint the officers showed here. Anymore…merely speaking or looking annoyed at a cop is sufficient grounds for the deployment of mace, tazers and truncheons. Its almost unusual to see a cop willing to risk his life by touching another human being without rendering them unconscious first….which makes me wonder if they taze their wives before sex…just to be on the safe side.

      Welcome to Washington, DC.  Look straight ahead at all times, don’t make any sudden moves, and keep your hands in plain sight.

    Indeed, there should be two new requirements for being a police officer: intelligence and DECENCY. Who knows, it could work.

    Fuck those piece of shit cops. Karma’s a bitch and I hope she catches up with both of them real quick, hopefully in the form of a bat to their heads and beat the shit out them until they both have to be in a wheel chair. OK I feel better now.
