Police Brutality

POLICE BRUTALITY – Cops Slam Disabled Blind Man To The Ground Then Lie About It In Police Report

Published on Jun 10, 2015

LITTLE ROCK, AR — A legally blind man is speaking out after saying he was injured when a Little Rock police officer slammed him to the ground.

It happened just before 4 p.m. on June 1. Eric Wilson had just left work and was walking home along 65th Street. Around that time, police say they got a call about someone fitting Wilson’s description running away from or chasing someone and who appeared to be afraid.

Wilson is legally blind and says he only sees shadows. He says he didn’t know who was calling him.

Wilson says the officers told him to put his hands behind his back before taking him to the ground.

“I was trying to figure out what was going on and before I knew it, I was slammed to the ground,” Wilson said.

In a police report an officer said Wilson pulled away violently, causing him to lose grip and that he was afraid Wilson would hit him or his partner with the handcuff.

Wilson and his lawyer Reggie Koch, say that’s not what the video shows.

That night, Wilson says he went to the hospital with back pain and was diagnosed with a lower back strain.

Police Taser Blind Man, Thought Cane was ‘Samurai Sword’

Published on Oct 18, 2012

“An innocent blind man was shot in the back with a 50,000-volt Taser by police after they mistook his white stick for a samurai sword.

Colin Farmer, 61, was hit after reports of a man walking through Chorley, Lancashire, early on Friday evening, with a sword. He said he initially thought he was being attacked by hooligans when he was struck by the Taser.

The matter is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) after Farmer made a complaint to the force.

Farmer, who used to run an architects’ practice, was on his way to meet friends at 5.45pm and was walking in Peter Street near a restaurant. “I was just walking along and I heard some men shouting really angrily and thought I’m going to get mugged. I didn’t know any police were here.

“The Taser hit me in the back and it started sending all these thousands of volts through me and I was terrified. I mean I had two strokes already caused by stress. I dropped the stick involuntarily and I collapsed on the floor face down.”

He added: “I was shaking and I thought ‘I’m going to have another stroke any second and this one is going to kill me. I’m being killed. I’m being killed’.”*Cenk Uygur and Sam Schacher (host of PopTrigger) break down why Farmer was tasered, his condition now, and what he may be planning to do next.
