Woman Having Diabetic Attack Assaulted by Police

Santa Fe County police can be seen on camera attacking a diabetic woman, ripping her out of her car and throwing her on the ground while she was having a diabetic episode.

According to KOAT News: Revena Garcia’s blood sugar dropped so low that she became extremely disoriented and could not open her car door. Deputies assumed she was a drunk driver and broke through her window, ripped her limp body from the vehicle, handcuffed her facedown on the hot pavement, where they left her, motionless.  

“I was just lost, I was just lost,” Garcia said. She said her blood sugar was so low that she could have gone into a coma.

Even if Garcia was drunk or on some kind of drugs she did not deserve this kind of treatment and was not being violent with anyone or showing any signs of being a threat.

Garcia showed no resistance and there was obviously no reason to attack her and leave her on the hot pavement where her blood sugar reached a critical level.  These kinds of situations occur everyday, and unfortunately it is rare for someone to even get their side of the story and have anyone believe it.

“In this case there was no resistance. We are looking at that very seriously,” Santa Fe County Sheriff Robert Garcia said.

“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.

However, it is likely that the people responsible for this attack will not see any punishment for their actions, aside from the possibility of a paid vacation.

  1. More out of control THUGS. Pay Backs can be a bitch. More than likely HI-5ing each other after the arrest of this criminal. Be Afraid be very Afraid. This victim should File suit against the Sheriffs Dept and then Personally against each of the THUGS. if nothing else she would make their individual lives HELL by Freezing everything they own while the suit pregress’s

  2. Grand Island Nebraska has similar thing happen there ..The city police attacked without true reason and smashed out all the cars windows and drugout the driver ..They had no just cause too stop or forse out the driver..This is a norm for the police system every were now..

  3. If them cops are going to use this as a training video then just why do they even have their police academy? I guess that their damned academy is to teach them pigs ways to beat people and how to get a paid vacation when they think they need one………. Every cop on the site is a part of what happened there and should be a part of a law suit against the pd as they didn`t do any thing to prevent this from happening.

  4. This is just more proof that cops are not there to “serve and protect”. I’ve heard it said that the police are afraid of the people, well, they damn well should be!

  5. A punishment in the form of a small garnishment from wages and paid towards the victim or the victims family on a regular basis through out the U.S. would send a message that being pr#@ks will not be tolerated. Do your job with professionalism, humility and compassion, if you cant do that then don’t do it at all.

  6. Apparently there were no armed, law biding citizens nearby to put down the criminal imposters wearing police uniforms… 🙁
