Jacob Blake handcuffed to hospital bed, father says

The father of Jacob Blake, who was shot multiple times by a Wisconsin police officer Sunday, said his son was handcuffed to his hospital bed - despite being paralyzed and charged with no crime. Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers was not aware Blake was cuffed to his bed. ’I would have no personal understanding why that would be necessary,’ he said at a press conference, according to the Sun-Times.

Well since he was arrested while committing a crime yes... They cuff them to the rails of the hospital bed so they cant flee or commit suicide. He is still in police custody for an outstanding arrest warrant. That how it works. People who work in ER rooms can vouch for this when they bring in a prep. Its also to protect the Nursing and Doctors so the prep doesn't grab a lance or needle and use it on the staff. In his condition, he cant flee cause his legs dont work, but attack and self harm is very possible.
