3 more officers on leave over arrest of woman with dementia

Source: AP

DENVER (AP) Three more police officers involved in the rough arrest of a 73-year-old Colorado woman with dementia have been placed on leave, an official said Wednesday.

Officer Daria Jalali, Officer Tyler Blackett and Sgt. Phil Metzler were placed on administrative leave Friday in connection with the arrest of Karen Garner in Loveland, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Denver, last year, police spokesman Tom Hacker said.

After Garner filed a federal lawsuit this month and her lawyer released body camera footage of her arrest, the department announced it was putting the arresting officer, Austin Hopp, on administrative leave and said that Jalali and Metzler, shown on Hopp's body camera footage, were being placed on desk duty.

Hacker said he did not know specifically what led to the changes in the status of Jalali, Blackett and Metzler but noted that Blackett helped transport Garner to the police station.

4. That was really upsetting to watch. And I didn't watch the arrest. But the cavalier

and giddy attitude of that cop about how he heard her arm "Pop" and how he "Loved it" is just unbelievable to me

There needs to be serious changes in the way police hire. They need to weed out the ones with sociopathic or sadistic tendencies.

6. Administrative leave free vacation

Giddy at getting a free vacation, no work to go to, get your paycheck and pension contribution, no cost to me/no worries, the taxpayers will pay for any settlement.

Desk duty: no wind and rain. But giving up driving around with a loud siren is a pity.

7. I will never forget the snap when they broke her arm

or the way he shoulder looked when they dislocated it. These people are barbarians....and they were proud of the way they handled the whole thing; that's how out of touch they are.

10. It was painful reading about it. Can't imagine how that poor woman felt. So alone...

ALL of these people should be dealt with harshly. They are NOT fit to work with the public ever again. Not ever. They are not safe around living beings of any kind.

So glad to see your article, Yo Mama Been Loggin. Thank you.

It's comforting to learn her family is staying close to her throughout this ordeal. She needs their help.

12. They left her alone in a cell for 6 hours

6 hours sitting their cuffed with her mangled arms twisted behind her back whimpering, while the people who did it to her were laughing and joking about hurting her.

11. If they had treated her with compassion in the beginning (Walmart) this would not have happened.

According to earlier article she tried to pay for the item but Walmart called the cops.
