Police Officer Abuses Another Senior Citizen

CopBlock has covered police officers’ proclivity for abusing those weaker than themselves before. (Here and here) And now they are at it again, this time breaking the nose and tearing the rotator cuff of a 84 year old man who thought he was helping the police.

An Alabama police officer allegedly hospitalized an elderly man who called 911 to report an accident across the street from his house while his wife watched the entire beating from her wheelchair.

The Courthouse News Service reported that 84-year-old Dorsey Henderson of Fairhope, Alabama called 911 after investigating the car accident and discovering that the driver of the vehicle was severely intoxicated…

When Officer Trent Scott arrived on the scene, Henderson attempted to inform him of the driver’s belligerent behavior and that the driver had been placed under citizens arrest. The officer allegedly told Henderson there was “no such thing as citizen’s arrest in Alabama,” and to “get out of the way, old man.”

After Henderson tried to explain that he was only trying to help, Officer Scott placed him in an arm bar and slammed him face first into the ground, breaking his nose and eyeglasses. Henderson’s wife, Dorris, watched from a wheelchair at the front window of her house, telling a 911 dispatcher that the officer was “beating the hell out of my husband.”

After dealing out his beating on Henderson, Officer Scott then sent away an ambulance and left Henderson handcuffed in the back of his cruiser, denying him much needed medical care.  It was not until a superior officer arrived and ordered the ambulance to return that Henderson was treated.  Officer Scott did not even manage to trump up charges against Henderson to try to justify his assault.  Henderson was released with no charges.
