Police officer Scott Oglesby choked a 7 year old special needs child having a seizure and is now on the State Central Register of “indicated” child abusers.
According to the article
Allison said her son, who is a special needs student at Stevenson, suffers from seizures that cause him to scream and act much like a 2-year-old throwing a tantrum. He had such a seizure on Dec. 21 and was with the school psychologist waiting for his dad to pick him up and take him home.
According to the police report obtained by the Allisons, Oglesby “darted” into the room where the Allison’s son was, told the boy he was giving him a headache and then lifted the 65-pound boy by the throat. He “was lifted off the floor so his feet were dangling … his head was close to the ceiling … his face was turning quite red,” according to the psychologist’s statement to police
The psychologist left the room and told the school resource officer who then went into the room. Oglesby then grabbed the boy by the arm, lifted him over his shoulder and carried him to the principal’s office where, according to one witness, he “threw” the boy into a chair.
The report further states that Oglesby went back into the classroom and said to school staff, “You got any more?”
Amazingly even the seven year old child knew what the cop did was wrong.
“The first thing he asked me was, ‘Mommy, didn’t that police officer’s mommy say he shouldn’t do that to people?’ ” Allison said.
And as you probably already figured out, no charges were filed against the officer for his crime and he is back on the force. Although he is on rubber gun duty and is not allowed to interact with the public.
