Senior Citizen Calls 911 For Sick Wife, Police Come and Beat Him Up Instead

When does enough become enough?

For every good done by a "peace keeper" (I use that term loosely.) there are 25 instances like this.

This is an elderly couple that is of no threat to the police officer. Instead of asking questions and getting to the bottom of why 911 was called, he takes the poor guy out.

Society is going to reach its breaking point with these instances and police are going to have the biggest target on their back that's ever been seen. I don't want to see it go to that, but the nothing is being done to corral this behavior.




Elbert Breshears of Humansville, Missouri called an ambulance for his ailing wife who suffers from dementia, but it was police who showed up first.

“The wife and I were standing about here, that’s the window she knocked out. I was standing here holding her hand and she was wavering hollering help,” Breshears said.

“Police car drove up, he bailed out ran over and knocked me down. He told me to get up, I told him I couldn’t,” he explained.

That’s when Breshears says the police did what they do best. Beat innocent elderly civilians.

“First thing, I know they grab me, threw me out there on the gravel. One of them sat down on my back, the other sat down on my head. They were trying to get handcuffs on me. I told them I can’t get my hands up. I have no objection to being handcuffed,” says Breshears.

...and how much do want to bet there are three meth labs within spitting distance of this old mans home. Doing their business and destroying lives but tip well. I grew up in small town Nowhere USA. That's how the police operate. Anything that would involve risk...forget it. Little old man needs help for his wife...time to tighten the gloves and get out the tazer.

To react with violence has taken the place of assess the situation with rationality and common sense. Was it not mentioned in another thread recently that new officers are hired with lower intellect scores? Well,this is the result. Just thugs with badges.

Police brutality will never end... or at least thats what it feels like.

Maybe bad cops like that should be forced to learn about what happened to the chinese cops yesterday..

You F* up, you face the concequences.

It's the lack of morals and respect in society , it seems more and more people (not just cops) are hell bent on stroking their ego by way of over powering people ...its sick many people get off on it ...

Sad really....

Police are not trained to use their judgement....they are trained to react with overwhelming force......

I'm just going to say it...

This stuff has been routine for African Americans for a very long time. In my experience, when you see a white face with black and blue accents it elicits quite a different reaction.

So mom and pop WASP are joining the party now? You didn't realize it was inevitable? Sorry, but welcome to the USA that a lot of "less privileged" people have been dealing with.

Deny ignorance.

That old gent has been rightly duffed up. Even if a mistaken take-down, it's way over the top. They didn't even begin to separate the couple in an attempt to see what exactly was going on.

You condone this behavior? You may very well be correct, but it does NOT make it right. Police are public servants, sworn to "protect and serve". Whom, exactly? The public? Once upon a time, perhaps, but just because they now serve the globalist masters doesn't mean you should give them a pass because "it's their training".

They need to change their training.

Fascinating.

I like how none of you mentioned :



Breshears says he first started having problems with police at the beginning of the year. What happened here, he says is unbelievable.

Breshears said that he had been having trouble with police earlier this year.

A spokesperson for the police declined an interview with local reporters, but did say that the man is facing charges for abusing his wife, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.


I'm not saying he's guilty - but there appears to be a back story and context to this - he apparently is "known" to the police. So, how this is being portrayed is slightly askew in favour of immediately jumping to the conclusion it's simple case of police brutality.

I'm sure they overreacted - but I'll bet the man isn't as "innocent" as the article and OP Title claim

You're right - it's justified for that reason. It was okay to beat blacks, so now it is okay to beat whites.

YOU deny ignorance, please.

What you say might be true alright..(to add,that's something I can't comment on*) but they have been dealing out this crap to old folks and paraplegics in bucketloads too. I don't think anything matters now, except how rich you might be.

As we all know...there are just too many of these (to me...insane) behaviors by Police. What a bunch of morons!...( the ones that do the wrong behaviors).

My heart goes out to the elderly gentleman who was just trying to take care of his wife. I just hope he gets a good lawyer and sues the police for millions... for what they have wrongly done.

More POS cops bullying the citizens.

What's more I caught this: " I have no objection to being handcuffed,”

He absolutely should have a problem if he's innocent. But maybe the brainwashing has gone too far on the elderly and they still believe that they should just bow Down until they are proven innocent?

Those Days have passed.

Peace

Yes, that's something that needs to be addressed by the courts.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty!

Even if the gentleman is guilty of above, it's not the officers place nor position to punish him for it.

Does that mean he is half-innocent or half guilty, and of what...there was always going to be police 'charges' after something like that. Overreacted? not much doubt about that.

The other aspect is that the lady is in residential care now, seemingly at the behest of the husband, or at least there seems to be no counter about that from the police.
