    Breaking: US policemen mock elderly woman with dementia during her forcible arrest

    Another shocking video has surfaced showing some US police officers mocking an elderly woman suffering from dementia as they watch video of her shoulder going “pop” during her forcible arrest.

    Karen Garner, 73, was detained on 26 June last year after she walked out of a Walmart store in the US state of Colorado, 50 miles north of Denver, without paying for $13 of items.

    The officers overpowered her during the arrest, resulting in injuries to her elbow and shoulder, according to her lawyer Sarah Schielke.

    The footage released on Monday shows officers fist-bumping one another, in a thoughtless and insensitive gesture, as they review body camera video of the incident.

    It shows the frail-looking grandmother handcuffed to a bench while the officers merrily joke about the incident, says her lawyer.

    “Ready for the pop? Hear the pop?” one of the officers is heard saying, referring to the elderly lady’s shoulder.

    As they continue watching the footage, the same officer says: “I love it.”

    The Garner family’s lawyer has filed a federal lawsuit against the department, alleging the officers violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and “violently assaulted” the lady.

    Schielke says her client went six hours without medical help while confused and crying in pain after an arrest that amounted to “torture”.

    “They failed Karen Garner,” the lawyer said in a press release. “They failed the community. And they did it all on camera.”

    Loveland police said in a statement on Monday they would not be making any comments pending the results of a “criminal investigation” launched last week.

    The footage had caused public outcry when it was released earlier this month.

    Garner’s family members told local media in Denver that the arrest and subsequent torture had worsened her dementia.
