"An elderly Missouri man dialed 911 and asked for an ambulance to come and help his ailing wife. Instead, the police showed up, threw him to the ground, sat on his head and handcuffed him.
He later received stitches for his injuries.
The trouble began after Breshears called to get help for his wife, who suffers from dementia. He asked for paramedics to come provide assistance to her after she knocked out one of their home’s windows.
The Humansville police arrived first, however.
According to Breshears, an officer tackled him right away, and then barked at him to stand up.
“He told me to get up,” recalled Breshears. “I told him I couldn’t.”
Officers then threw him into a pile of gravel and sat on his back and head as they attempted to handcuff him. Breshears pleaded with the officers to get off him.
“I told them I can’t get my hands up to wear you can handcuff me, if you let me up you can handcuff me,” he said. “I got no objection to being handcuffed.”
A doctor had to sew up his head and remove gravel from his wounds."
A friend of mine had almost this exact scenario happen to him and his wife. Now I read about it happening elsewhere. Enough is enough!
