Arizona sheriff’s deputy tackles 15-year-old boy with no arms or legs

In a video that aired Thursday, a sheriff’s deputy is seen tackling and wrestling a teen in foster care. The teen — an amputee with no arms or legs — repeatedly screams at the police officer to get off of him. The officer holds the boy in a headlock on the ground and curses in his face before arresting him for disorderly conduct. The Pima County Sheriff’s Office has ordered an investigation.

I guess he was armed and on the run

This is very biased reporting. For whatever reason the staff decided to involve law enforcement so I am going to assume that they had a legitimate reason to do so. It appears from the video that the officer is being fair - no special treatment for the kid's physical status and the officer does appear to try not to harm him too much when pinning him to the floor - rather difficult when the other person literally has no limbs to absorb the force. I'm going to wait for more information before jumping on the officer or staff. There is a reason why police were called to the location.

Some strong reactions here when there’s not enough information to form an opinion.

Why do all these stories mention the race of the officer?

Horrible! Sad. I just don’t believe it. I hope the officer at least looses his job.

There isn't enough information on why this happened. I have worked with people with similar disabilities and have the bite marks to prove it. (Bitten when helping them out of bed because they have behaviour problems and were in a bad mood.) While from the information provided I do think this was a Total over reaction, by the police officer. The articles are too vague on what happened. No one calls the police over a bin being pushed over.

so the home called the police because this kid was causing problems. looks to me in the likely edited video that he was resisting arrest. hard to restrain a kid with no arms or legs when he try's to fight back other then hold him down

Was his name Matt? He was lying on the floor? Bob? No, he wasn't in a pool.
