    “Ready for the pop? Here comes the pop.”

    NOT INTENTIONALLY MALEVOLENT

    KAREN GARNER DID THIS TO HERSELF

    Karen Garner Arrest - Horrific Highlight Reel from Booking Area
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmtxTWTTdC4


    “Ready for the pop? Here comes the pop.”

    The quote above is from a Loveland Police officer – Austin Hopp – said in reference to the sound it made when he dislocated and fractured Karen Garner’s shoulder. Hopp made this comment to two fellow Loveland Police officers while they watched his body camera video together at the police station. They all laughed about it. The comment was made while Karen Garner, who has dementia, remained handcuffed to a bench in a cell just 10 feet away from them, alone, confused and crying in pain. She would ultimately go over six hours without any medical attention.

    This horrific statement comes to light after Ms. Garner’s family hired a sound engineer to enhance the audio on Loveland Police station booking videos from the day of Karen’s arrest. The video reveals a grotesque culture of callous disregard for the health and safety of citizens. The officers fist-bump one another multiple times in self-congratulation for both the assault on Garner and the intimidation of the citizen who attempted to complain about it.

    In an April 26, 2021 press release responding to the revelations seen in this video, Ms. Garner's attorney, Sarah Schielke of The Life & Liberty Law Office states: “This is utterly disgusting. These videos cannot be unseen or unheard. I am sorry to have to share them with the public. This will be traumatic and deeply upsetting for everyone to see. But as it often goes with bad police departments, it seems this is the only way to make them change. They have to be exposed. If I didn’t release this, the Loveland Police’s toxic culture of arrogance and entitlement, along with their abuse of the vulnerable and powerless, would carry on, business as usual. I won’t be a part of that.”

    “Loveland knew. They’ve known all along,” Schielke continues. “They failed Karen Garner. They failed the community. And they did it all on camera. Do you realize how horrifying that is? That means they were used to getting away with it. That the comfortable norm in Loveland is one of zero accountability. That this is not just some ‘isolated incident.’ It is not just one single ‘problem.’ It is widespread, sociopathic criminality. And to attempt to shift the burden to Karen, or a bystander, or her family, or counsel, to report this? Shame on you, Loveland. You took an oath to protect and serve. This is a disgrace.”

    Since filing a federal lawsuit against the City of Loveland and three of its officers on April 14, 2021, the Loveland Police Department’s gruesome arrest and abuse of 73-year-old grandmother Karen Garner has horrified the country, making national headlines (New York Times, Washington Post, CBS News, NBC News, CNN, Newsweek, The Guardian, Vice). The 8th Judicial District Attorney’s office, in conjunction with the FBI and Fort Collins Police, has since opened a criminal investigation into the Loveland Police.

    Meanwhile, the City of Loveland has vowed to protect the “due process” rights of its officers, with Chief Robert Ticer putting one officer on administrative leave (Hopp) and “reassigning” the other two officers (Sergeant Metzler and Officer Jalali) to “administrative duties” (desk duty) until the various investigations are completed. To date, the City has yet to extend any apology to Ms. Garner or her family for the various atrocities witnessed on these videos.

    Old Lives Don’t Matter

    https://www.ericpetersautos.com/2021...s-dont-matter/

    By eric - April 17, 2021



    There will probably be no riots and looting over the brutal treatment meted out to Karen Garner, a frail elderly woman reportedly suffering from Alzhemier’s disease, who was violently Hut! Hut! Hutted! by armed government workers for the crime of forgetting to pay for fourteen dollars’ worth of soda and detergent at Wal Mart.

    Well, that was the excuse for the Hut! Hut! Hut! The real reason was her failure to immediately show the proper respect for Authority – by obeying commands barked at her by an AGW.

    According to news reports, Garner had walked from her home to the Wal Mart, to buy the items – but walked out without having paid for them. She made no attempt to hide the items in her clothes and given that, the explanation that her Alzheimer’s is responsible for her walking out of the store without having paid for the items seems plausible.

    Wal Mart employees followed her outside and pointed out that she had not paid; whereupon she apparently tried to pay for the items but the employees would not allow it.

    In any event, the unpaid- for items were returned and Garner left to walk back home.

    She is shortly confronted by an AGW who almost immediately resorts to extreme force to subdue this 80-something-pound threat to his safety.

    Actually, his Authority.

    Within 30 seconds, the AGW seizes Garner’s left arm and hurls the old woman to the ground, wrenches her arms behind her back and places he weight of his body on the 73-year-old, leaving her blooded and with broken bones, according to news reports.

    Apparently, the woman was not given medical attention for several hours. Which means the Hut! Hut! Hut! could have had permanent effects, given it was applied to a frail old woman in her 70s. The elderly are “vulnerable,” remember.

    Whatever happened to granny might die? This one actually could have. And not Because ‘Rona.

    Keep in mind that all of this happened over – at most – the attempted “shoplifting” of fourteen dollars’ worth of stuff. It happened to an 80-something pound old lady, who posed no threat to the “safety” of the government thugs who brutalized her.

    And, of course, she wasn’t black – so the assault upon her wasn’t racial.

    Her “white privilege” did not protect her from being violently Hut! Hut! Hutted! over something that doesn’t even rise to the standard of jaywalking – since nothing was actually shoplifted.

    The common denominator in these Hut! Hut! Huttings! isn’t race. That is a bogey – a distraction. The thing-in-common irrespective of race is the resort to hair-trigger murderous violence in response to any hesitation to the barked commands of AGWs – who are trained to react like steroidal pit bills when their Authority isn’t immediately respected.

    This failure justifies – in their vicious little minds – the use of force against old ladies and kids – and people laying on the floor, as ordered, crying for their lives (Daniel Shaver) who are treated the same as violent, dangerous men on the attack by pathetic Batman-belted, body-armored men and loathsome women wielding government-sanctioned ultra-violence.

    The problem is not racial. It is legal.

    It is the problem of endowing sadists with the Authority to treat people this way over penny-ante “offenses” – and not treating people who behave this way as the criminals they are.

    There is a reason why so many people who would ordinarily support police loathe armed government workers.

    There’s a difference – and it’s damned important.

    Nobody with an IQ above 85 would ever consider being a police officer these days.

    People who are too intelligent are specifically disallowed from becoming cops. There have bedn suits by people who were rejected for being too smart and the courts uphold the right to reject applicants on those grounds.

    What were they supposed to do in that situation? Let her just keep picking wildflowers on her way home??
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.
