Brickbat: That's Sick


Santa Fe County, New Mexico, Sheriff Robert Garcia says he will look into why deputies handcuffed a woman suffering a diabetic attack and left her on the ground. Revina Garcia had been in a minor automobile accident and did not respond to deputies when they arrived on the scene. They smashed out the windows of her vehicle, dragged her out, handcuffed her and left her face down on the pavement for about a minute before placing her in a patrol car. Deputies said they believed she was intoxicated.
