Protecting and serving! Revina Garcia rear-ended another vehicle while having a diabetic episode. She was unable to extricate herself from her car....so friendly helpful police smashed her window, dragged her out, cuffed her, and left her face down on asphalt on a summer day in New Mexico. That's what you get for getting in a car crash, perp!
A deputy shattered Garcia’s car window and pulled her out of the car. Garcia was then thrown on the street face down and handcuffed.
"In this case there was no resistance. We are looking at that very seriously," Santa Fe County Sheriff Robert Garcia said.
With Garcia's face on the ground and her not moving at all, deputies walk away. Garcia said her blood sugar was so low that she could have gone into a coma....
"What concerns me is there is no need to lay someone on the ground for that amount of time. There were other deputies around that could have assisted in at least sitting her up or having her placed in a cruiser," said the sheriff....
Garcia was face down on the pavement for more than a minute, and the Sheriff says he's going to look into just how hot it was that day and how hot that pavement could have been....After 10 minutes, paramedics arrived and Garcia was treated for the diabetic episode.
It's just officer safety folks: when arriving at an accident scene and waiting for medical help, the survivors have gotta be cuffed and face down on asphalt. If you don't face death in your miserable job every day, you don't really have the right to ask questions.
