clueless morons blame the police for what happened here.
his violent behavior was the justification for forcing him to the ground.
“fucking pigs” responded to a crime. Business owners initiated the police involvement regarding a theft of service. Officers responded, recognized the situation and gave him the opportunity to leave. Saylor becomes violent and is arrested. Once he enters an acute medical situation: police remove handcuffs, call paramedics and their focus becomes getting him medical care, not prosecuting a crime. I honestly don’t understand why people blame the police for this. Had they done nothing they would have been 1) willfully breaking their oath to uphold the law 2) telling business owners that they have no legal redress for a theft and 3) telling Saylor that stealing is acceptable.
This article is ridiculous from start to finish…The title “Man with down syndrome Asphyxiated By Police Over $11 Movie Ticket” implies that his death wasapunishment imposed by police. Police have to react to very dynamic and unique circumstances, and this monday morning quarterbacking of their actions is terrible. Dr. George Kirkman hasaPhd in criminology; his ‘medical expertise’ is frivolous. Every part of this article is anti-police inflammatory drivel. At least the writer of this story kind of warned us of his terrible journalism with his tagline “this isareally awful story.”
