    So if someone did place him in the car then some of you think that he somehow does not have to get out of the car or be helped out when stopped by police???does he not have to still follow laws and procedures or is he exempt from that because he is in a wheelchair and someone placed him in a car??what he should have said is that he needs to be helped out of his vehicle just like he was helped in to it.then they can run the dogs around the car and if they find drugs then he can be helped into a jail cell and if they dont then he can get placed back in his car and drive off.he clearly was trying to use his issues as a reason for him to not have to exit the vehicle for any reason at all.but the officers should have just grabbed him around his waist and got him out of the car when he kept refusing over and over and never should have grabbed any person by the hair wheelchair or not.

    This is the 21st century.. there is absolutely no place for racism.. it is unacceptable.. those that practice racism should suffer the loss of employment, severe fines, and imprisonment if warranted.. and police really need to get rid of the "good 'ole boy" veterans, fire all the officers that have trained under them and have complaint sheets a mile long, and start implementation of psychological exams upon entrance to training academies with regular psychological evaluations every 30 days as well

    What did they seize from the vehicle? Why only show a one sided look into this 🙄

    I love how people see 5 percent of an encounter and get offended. What didn’t we see. Time and time again they do this crap to get people stirred up. Most times the cops are justified. If your going to show a video show it all. Then I’ll make a determination

    We had an officer like this in our town. We were in a minor accident. I asked the officer if I could move my son who has epilepsy and cerebral palsy away from the flashing lights.(My friend was going to take him) The officer started yelling at me because I "hit" a motorcyclist (the motorcycle caused the accident by zipping around cars) I continued to ask calmly to remove my son before he had a seizure, the officer continued to yell. I started yelling back. Finally another officer who knew my family stepped in and told him to back off. The second officer had helped to save my son before during a seizure when he stopped breathing. The first officer no longer works for the police department in our town.

    My question is did they find drugs in the car. There were a lot of ways this could have been handled.

    A paraplegic driving a car with no hand controls in his car? You can clearly see the steering wheel and floor controls clearly in several shots throughout the video. There is no handicap controls anywhere and wouldnt he have had a handicap plate or placard in his car? I call BS .lookin for internet attention was his only goal

    The amount of people saying he can't be paraplegic because he is driving or because they don't see a wheelchair... 🥴🥴
