POLICE BRUTALITY: 84-Year-Old Elderly Woman With Alzheimers Gets Bodyslammed by Police

First, it should be noted that Virginia Dodson, 84, was indeed wielding a knife when confronted by police. However, the frail Alzheimer’s patient was doing so because she had an Alzheimer’s-related dementia attack and used a knife to cut herself out of her seatbelt.

The incident occurred on the night of August 1st, at a Whitehall, Ohio Wal-Mart store. Left alone in the car by her daughter, Virginia Dodson couldn’t remember why she was sitting alone in the car, and panicked. In that state, she was no longer able to remember how to unbuckle her seatbelt, and thus used a steak knife to cut herself out.

One has to wonder why she was left in the car, knowing she has Alzheimer’s, with a steak knife available.

A woman, acting disoriented in a parking lot, holding a knife? Police were called, as you would expect. According to reports, Dodson did not drop the weapon when asked to, and a police officer disarmed her by using a pretty familiar move, twisting her arm so as to bodyslam her to the pavement.

Now, while some have said, why didn’t they simply grab the knife away from her, if someone’s waving a knife around, it’s not easy to grab without getting cut yourself. On the other hand, you can imagine how such an event looks. In fact, you can see it here.

The real culprit in this is the caregiver, who should never have left Virginia in the car alone. However, you can see after the incident that since the officer was white, albeit a woman, the situation quickly deteriorated and was given racial overtones from those witnessing it.
