CAUGHT ON CAMERA: OHP Defends its Use of Force in Traffic Incident:
(Bill Schammert) The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says its troopers were doing everything by the book when they smashed a driver’s window and hit the driver with a night stick for being non-compliant. According to a highway patrol spokesman, the troopers thought the man was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but later found out he was having a medical episode.
The incident was all caught on camera.
“To me, it seemed aggressive,” said the man who shot the video. He doesn’t want to be named.
My Commentary: Experiencing medical distress while driving, which leaves you and your car in a ditch, barely able to move, or even communicate? To the trained officers at the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, that’s called “non-compliance,” so your car window will be broken, and you will be beaten about the face and head with night sticks.
