“She’s having a heart attack! She’s having a heart attack! She needs help!”

Ferguson, Mo. – After the grand jury decision, the police, in an extremely callous and brutal move, opened fire with rubber bullet and tear gas on a group carrying an unconscious woman to the police line looking for help during a protest.

The stunning video, by Tim Pool, shows a group as they approach the police line shouting,

“She’s having a heart attack! She’s having a heart attack! She needs help!”

But rather than lending needed assistance, officers begin firing rubber bullets at them from a shotgun, followed up by volleys of tear gas.

Is this the type of behavior we should expect from those sworn to uphold the law?

This looks to be simply another lesson that over militarized cops are nothing but agents of repression that are trained to be aggressive and dole out punishment, not assist citizens in need of help.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if cops acted like human beings rather than jackboot thug enforcers?

While not every cop treats citizens in distress in this manner, it has become an all too common occurrence. In recent months there have been numerous cases of cops being called to assist with mental health issues, only to have officers end up killing those they are called to help.

These actions can no longer simply be swept under the rug. Officers must be held accountable for the behavior they engage in under the color of law.

Regardless of how you feel about the events in Ferguson, opening fire on a group of people trying to get help for an unconscious woman speaks volumes about police state USA.
