Second Orient Road Jail Video Deflates the “Disabled Rodney King” Argument
A new video has surfaced in the past day showing that rough treatment is not so rare at Orient Road Jail, the same jail where quadriplegic Brian Sterner was caught on camera being dumped out of his chair by officers. Not only does it show that its not a rare occurance, but it shows that it knows no boundaries of race or ability. The video shows Marcella Pourmoghani, who is in no way disabled, being grabbed by the hair and tossed to the ground, and being beaten by a black officer while held down by three white officers. This video is no less deplorable than the Sterner video, in fact it may be more so. Pourmoghani said she spoke up about it after hearing what happened to Brian Sterner. This video tells the rest of the story. Please excuse the ad before the video, but you must see this to know what is really going on! Police are given the right to use force when necessary. But does it look necessary from what we see here? Granted we don’t have the whole story.
It is easy to imagine that a person is being victimized because he or she is in a wheelchair, and it is easy to imagine that one person hates and victimizes another because of their race, but that is not always the case.
