A man in obvious mental distress instead of being assisted by police swore to protect and serve, was viciously attacked by the police and their k9 dog.
The unidentified man repeatedly saying “water, water, water” was subjected to a brutal display of force at the hands of Trenton police officers. It seems everyone else in the video realized the man was impaired in some way, everyone except the police who only seemed to see some type of dangerous animal.
What seems to be a common occurrence in police videos the officer was heard saying “stop resisting, stop resisting” as though this were his excuse to commit mayhem on this deranged man’s person.
And that’s what they did. The officer allowed his k9 dog partner to attack and bite the man even though he was in mental distress. Even while the k9 dog is biting him the victim still only said “water, water, water”.
Who in his right mind wouldn’t recognize the man’s mental distress after all of this. Everyone did, except the police officers. They continued to operate under the assumption the man was criminal and not deranged. How pitiful.
Then to make matters worse the officer is seen abusing the k9 who clearly not under his command or control.
It will be of much interest seeing how the police director and mayor respond to this assault by what in a long distant past used to be looked on as Trenton’s finest.
