The facts are since when did the police begin attacking defenseless people when taking them into custody if they are taken into custody. I am not sure if they are practicing what they are being taught on the weak, the lame and old first. Or are attempting to intimidate and frighten the general public. Either way it is definitely becoming a frequent occurance and when it comes to the government it is never by accident. My personal belief is that they are trying to test a reaction and possibly hoping a possible violent reaction. I remember what happened in the 60's and early 70's when there were a lot of protesting around the country and how the police would infiltrate the crowds and be the ones to start the violence then blame the protestors. There is no reason to believe they would have any hesitation to incite a riot now. Just food for thought.

Actually yes.

Even if he touched a 6 year old girl he still has rights. He has a right to be arrested without being taken to the ground violently and having his head bounced off the sidewalk when he is not posing a threat of any kind to the officers.

I thought that the police were peacekeepers.

This behavior is much like the attitude cops in Est Germany had before the wall came down.

The US is turning more and more into what it was like living in est Germany before 1989.

I don't understand this...

they are human, they have a wife, children and family ... how can they act this way..? what the f*ck... that is a whole new level of brainwashed, do they feed them some type of drug or somthing? Every American police video I see they are always on a power trip.

It confused me how a human being can be this way to another fellow human, sickens me.

I am not sticking up for the police in anyway, but sometimes people just have bad days. This is no excuse to crime they committed on this man.

I agree that the treatment of the fellow in the wheelchair seemed a bit extreme.

I also find the fact that the video doesn't show anything before the "handicapped" man (It looked to me like he stood up, as he was dragged forward.) was jerked from the wheelchair a bit suspicious too. The person recording the video seems to have intentionally left that part out!

See ya, Milt

Yeah, we don't know what happened beforehand. Maybe the guy was a known perp who was using the wheelchair as a prop to scam money from passersby.

And me, I'd maybe call it police brutality, but not a police state.

The agency involved is the District of Columbia Transit Police. The incident took place at some point over this last weekend.

The video has been seen by both DC Police as well as Transit Police, and Metro is currently reviewing the officers actions.

They were attempting to arrest the man, although there is no info on what the charges were or what prompted Police contact with the individual in the video. The assault on an officer comment may not be the only charge, even though its the only one we heard the officer say. I have seen some other articles that look similar to this incident describing ythe homeless man as being able to walk, but absent any other specific info, its nothing but a coincidence.

Metro Transit Police should have a statement coming out in the next few days.

Its a blog, but it has more info than all the other links I have seen -
Force Questioned in Video of Metro Police Arrest


Over the weekend, a video surfaced on YouTube showing what appears to be D.C. Metro Police forcefully arresting a man in a wheelchair just outside of the U Street/African-Amer Civil War Memorial/Cardozo Metro station. In the video, we can see the incident takes place during the middle of the day, just across the street from Ben's Chili Bowl. Two police officers, who appear to be with Metro Transit Police, tackle a man from his motorized wheelchair onto the sidewalk, injuring the man and causing him to bleed from the head. Since the incident took place midday, a crowd forms quickly. One woman can be heard clearly saying that he man is "always in a wheelchair" and supposedly lives nearby.

The title of the video implies the man is homeless, however there is no evidence in the video to indicate that fact.

Neither D.C. Police nor Metro Transit Police were available to comment or elaborate on the incident, however a D.C. police spokesperson indicates that the Metro Transit Police Department is handling the issue. As with many other police incidents, particularly those that happen in the Metro system, we should expect a statement fairly soon.



As far as my 2 cents goes, I am going to wait to see what was going on. The video does not show anything prior to the guy being pulled out of the wheel chair.

Also, for what it is worth DC police were also working a shooting that occured prior that involved a man in a wheel chair. Essentially the guy in the other incident (I dont know if they are linked or not) pulled a drive by in a wheel chair.

Any chance we can stop the 100 meter rush to judgment on the police? I have not seen ANY information coming from news or the police that explains what occured. The comments I have seen so far are based off of perception and nothing else.

If the force is excessive for the encounter, then by all means nail the cops asses to the wall. Until we get the full story though, and just like the guy in the wheel chair, everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Cops are just a disgusting breed of animals. I don't care about the "good" ones, your not good if you're a cop. Stop protecting your "police brothers" and start protecting citizens. I know the cop fanboys will bash me for this, but quite frankly I don't care. Cops are the enemy of every free citizen, they are trained to be.

Many will say that the laws aren't the choice of the officer. This is true, but the officer is free to "look the other way" and in addition to that, when you decide to become an officer, you decide to enforce illegal "laws" so you are a domestic enemy. For shame.

I really hate cops. Trained to treat you like you're criminal, regardless.

I got a knee to the back of the neck and handcuffs a month after I had surgery, they didn't care. I was 100% innocent, not given a chance to speak. After that my faith was gone and now i'm coldblooded. sad.

I agree. This type of incident is getting too common.

It is starting to stink to high heaven of a set-up to impose Martial Law. Things are going to get really dicey when the Food Safety Modernization act goes in effect in 2012. That blasted law COULD end up including Ma's home grown tomatoes especially if she gives any to the neighbors.

LOOK at the THREAD: Family Facing $4 Million in Fines for Selling Bunnies, to see how heavy handed the government is getting.

Given the wording I think there may be a hidden "Commerce Clause" in the new law (see bottom) and THAT is real bad news. This article is a lawyer's take on the Commerce Clause and home gardens: www.examiner.com...

I swear the government goon squads are in training for forcing the issue!

Henshaw Incident


...At 5:00 AM on September 12, 2006, Cindi and Danny Henshaw were awakened by their local Virginia game warden, who arrested Danny on an apparently trumped up Class 2 Misdemeanor charge and took him from his Willis River Hunting preserve for supposedly, “operating a mammalian hunting enclosure without a permit.” As soon as Danny was out of the way, 9 SUV’s and pickups, 4 wheelers, and numerous heavily armed agents entered the Henshaw property with a Quarantine Order and began shooting Henshaw’s hogs and sheep with 12 gauge shotguns. Some 270 shell casings were also found....

....Danny was released from custody in 2 hours and allowed to return to the farm where he and Cindi were controlled around the clock by armed guards from September 12th through September 22nd....

A third case of US government abuse:

From the book review of MAD SHEEP by Linda Faillace


Linda Faillace's Mad Sheep is a tragic tale—tragic for the lives of those poor sheep, tragic for the shattered hopes of a family, but above all tragic for America...

In the mid-1990s Linda and Larry Faillace had a dream: they wanted to breed sheep and make cheese on their Vermont farm. They did the research, worked hard, followed the rules, and, after years of preparation and patience, built a successful, entrepreneurial business.

But just like that, their dream turned into a nightmare. The U.S. Department of Agriculture told them that the sheep they imported from Europe (with the USDA's seal of approval) carried a disease similar to the dreaded BSE or "mad cow disease." After months of surveillance--which included USDA agents spying from nearby mountaintops and comically hiding behind bushes--armed federal agents seized their flock. The animals were destroyed, the Faillace's lives turned upside down, all so that the USDA could show the U.S. meat industries that they were protecting America from mad cow disease--and by extension, easing fears among an increasingly wary population of meat-eaters.

Mad Sheep is the account of one family's struggle against a bullying and corrupt government agency that long ago abandoned the family farmer to serve the needs of corporate agriculture and the industrialization of our food supply.... www.chelseagreen.com...




And this is where it gets REALLY REALLY interesting


From a Summary of "Mad Sheep" by Linda Faillace

...Linda heard that there was more information at the USDA and used the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to request data from the USDA. Two weeks after the request, the FOIA revealed four hundred negative results on sheep, including additional negative tests on the four sheep that Rubenstein and the USDA claimed were positive!

Again a trumped up case of "disease" was used to go after an innocent family.

Heck they have even gone after grandma for her home-baked pies at church events!

I agree 100%. The only thing that makes sense is that these pigs have been instructed to act like this. That means the order has come from the VERY TOP, likely above the president of course. There is no other explanation for this sickening pig behavior other than it has all been planned by the elites to crush Americans.


Oh please...stop with the drama.
"Orders from the top to crush Americans"..yeah, right.
At this rate, say 100 incidents per day, how many centuries would it take to affect a population of over 300 million? You'd think that "the VERY TOP, likely above the president of course", the elite, would have come up with a more efficient method?

Honestly, some of the stuff I read on ATS would make a statue roll it's eyes.

Don't you know that he was told to molest the 6 yr old girl by "the Elite, above the president of course". It's all part of the grand plan to 'crush Americans'.


No, you cannot be right. It MUST be the cop's fault. It HAS TO BE the cop's fault! Stop being reasonable and start going along with us, you shameless fascist pig apologist you! If you disagree, then...then...well, I don't know. Just stop!
