Oklahoma Cops Beat Man and Handcuff Him for Having Medical Episode

“Officer safety is paramount in a situation like that,” Capt. Paul Timmons said. “It’s three o’clock in the morning and you’re dealing with a bunch of unknowns.”

Oklahoma Highway Patrol officers defended the actions of the officers, saying just because a man is having a medical episode is no excuse for him not to comply with the orders of police, justifying it with the phrase “officer safety.”

Even if you’re having a heart attack or a diabetic episode, if you don’t comply, you may die. And it will be justified.
