Get punished for what?Being in a wheelchair doesnt exclude you from
following police orders.Anybody in a wheelchair who resists will get thrown down and cuffed.It is standard procedure.Having a handicap is no excuse
for resisiting arrest.

I suppose you think, even if the police don't have to violently throw some one on the floor to put him in hand cuffs, that they should do it anyway?
Resist or not, they did not have to throw that man... at all... He has 2 weak old arms and no legs, you have 4 strong young arms, and 4 strong young
legs. There were two officers, one could of grabbed his arms, while the other cuffed him.
But yeah, you know... since his "resisted" (he didn't puch or push, they grabbed him and he just shook....) totally justifies the right (shaking
justifies the right) to have your head smashed into the ground and busted open.
People die from hitting their head on the ground.... and they were holding his arms, so he couldn't even protect his face. I'm a black belt in
Taekwondo, and seriously... there are numerous ways to take some one down safely to all people.....
No excuses, ever. Even if the old man in the wheel chair was being arrested for murder, he posed no threat at that moment to anybody around him...
this is evident by the fact that the police turned their backs on him while he was down. They knew he had no weapons on his person, so the use of
force is NOT justified.
You just want to sign your rights away because you are a "goody twoshoes" cynic. You don't break the law, so anybody who does (even when they
don't, and the cops are just out right wrong) you claim they deserve it.
What good does that do, but jepordize your OWN safety? It's been getting worse, and worse, and worse... yet, people like you keep telling them it's
okay.... When it gets bad enough, that they just beat people for not answering fast enough, or you get pulled over and can't find your insurance in
the stack of papers in your glove compartment and get hospitalized over it, you would immediately learn your lesson...
Sadly, the probability of you specifically of being a target any time soon in a sea of 6billion people, is pretty slim... so you will get your free
pass to keep allowing them to get worse....
