For starters how about changing the title of this thread to the title of your source instead of making it up as you go?
He fled the scene of an accident.
Secondly how are the police suppose to know the driver of the vehicle is in fact deaf? Just because there is a sticker does not make it so.
The flip side is he resisted both officers during the arrest.
Next time, don't flee the scene of a motor vehicle accident and then claim a disability after the fact.
Hit and run?
The civilian has already proven his beating. Where is proof of hit and run? Where is the claimant of being hit?
Does this mean IF you hit and run, and you're elderly, you get beat till your eyes bleed?
Prove the person didn't resist a lawful arrest.
Deaf man says police beat him for disobeying
orders he couldn’t hear - Fox4 News OKC
Pearl Pearson, 64, allegedly fled the scene of an automobile accident and was later pulled over by Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers.
Affiliate KFOR reports that an affidavit indicates Pearson resisted two troopers and didn’t comply with multiple orders to show his hands after they
had pulled him over on January 3. A seven-minute physical altercation ensued. Pearson alleges he was hit in the face before he could show his ID. The
affidavit does not mention if the officers knew Pearson couldn’t hear them. Pearson was arrested and later charged for leaving the scene of an
accident and resisting arrest.
I love it when a video is posted and claims made yet no one bothers to look at the other side of the story to see if the facts are accurate.
I would say this guy has other issues than just being deaf -
In an earlier report, Pearson reportedly indicated that the Total Source for Hearing-Loss and Access group (TSHA) was coming to his defense, but a
member of the group told FOX 4 that it doesn’t know the circumstances behind the arrest and said they are not involved and not his spokesperson.
TSHA provides interpreters and other services for the hearing-impaired. On their website, they are accepting donations for his legal and medical
So how about we wait for the investigation to run its course before we grab a rope and find a tall tree eh?
A statement provided to KFOR from the highway patrol mentioned that Pearson’s arrest and officer’s actions are currently being reviewed.
Online court records indicate that charges have been filed, but no future court dates are listed at this time.
Final thought and a question for the OP -
Please explain to us what "obviously deaf" looks like? Or is that your way of trying to twist facts to fit the anti police contingent on this
