This is a tricky situation. Officers are taught to not allow obstruction of justice, but some people are mentally ill. Considering this is St. Simons, maybe they should have done more to coerce her out of the vehicle. On the slamming, at least they do not discriminate :) She will get nothing in a lawsuit, she caused an accident on public roads and resisted every step of the way.

I'm a former Police Officer and have over 28 year’s Investigative experience. This is sloppy / discussing police work at its best. What kind of people are law enforcement agencies hiring these days? Better yet what kind of training are recruits receiving? There’s obviously a noticeable lack of training in gender and geriatric arrest? During these types of arrest Officers should exercise caution in many areas. Further I never will understand why it’s necessary for “Ossiffers” twice the size “height and weight,” of a female of elderly citizen to body slam the arrestee to the ground. Elderly citizen are more fragile than younger. Their lives are more easily put at risk. Isn’t the use of force in the arrest of a female the same mentality of a rapist? Use of force to compel compliance? Think about it. Are these Officers so intellectually challenged that they know no better? What wrong with the Officers opening the back doors of the patrol car. One Officer holding the arrestee under the arms as the second Officer holds the legs and or feet then leaning the arrestee backwards as they guide the suspect into the back seat of the vehicle. “ No muff no scuff job done.” Remember this formula: Poor /sloppy hiring + Poor /sloppy training = Civil Rights Violations = multimillion dollar punitive and compensatory damages = financial stress = higher taxes. I find it difficult to believe that any reasonable and prudent tax payer wants this type behavior out of those that are sworn to serve and protect.
