Ex-Colorado Cop Gets 5 Years In Prison For Assault Of 73-Year-Old Woman With Dementia |Roland Martin



In Colorado, a former police officer gets five years in prison for the brutal arrest of an elderly woman with dementia.

In June 2020, Austin Hopp attempted to arrest Karen Garner after receiving a shoplifting call from a local Wal-Mart. Garner returned the 13 dollars worth of merchandise she allegedly took. When Garner did not comply with Hopp’s orders, he slammed her to the ground, breaking her arm, spraining her wrist, and separating her shoulder.

Hopp pleaded guilty to assault.

His partner Daria Jalali faces misconduct and failure to intervene charges for her role in the incident.

  1. Excellent post. I was checking continuously this blog
    and I’m impressed! Very helpful info specifically the last part :
    ) I care for such information much. I was looking for this particular info for a
    very long time. Thank you and good luck.

  2. She didn't even actually steal anything, she forgot to pay for some items in her hands, when the Walmart security stopped her she tried to pay for the items but he wouldn't let her, watch the Walmart camera feed. She weighed 80 lbs

  3. First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
         Because I was not a socialist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
         Because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
         Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

  4. What white people fail to understand is that, for us, color doesn't matter. We will fight for the rights of everyone. Period.

  5. Bullies with badges is what they were, pos who bullied abused and brutalized an old lady with dementia over nothing really and then laughed and bragged about it, I was so disgusted and I’m even more disgusted they only got 5 years let it had been one of us though, pigs get off too easy, their hardly ever held to the same standard and held responsible for the crimes/wrongdoing they do, they other pigs who thought it was funny and laughing with him should’ve been fired and not allowed to police again, their not fit to where a badge either nor do they deserve to be called police if their not gonna behave like respectable police

  6. I don't give a f what they received because isn't funny how when a elderly wht woman is hurt they want to charge the officers. They kill or do the same thing to our blk elderly and get away with it because they feared for their life. If I'm saying something incorrectly please someone correct me. How many videos have we seen out there when these dogs have attacked our elderly women and the DA have said let's throw the book at them, no they come back with there wasn't enough evidence to charge them ( only the bodycam & dashboard video)

  7. See that’s what I keep saying they don’t know how to treat people who are mentally ill they should know better treating her like she robbed a bank or store just knowing her frailty but they about some ignorant A** police who are not trained to deal with this kind of situation I would of paid for the merchandise for her pray she will be okay cause I bet she is traumatized hope they all get SUE

  8. That elderly woman was not a Karen. She has dementia and was confused about everything that was happening to her especially why it was happening. She had a smile on her face the whole time she for six hours with broken bones. There is no evidence that she was a Karen before her affliction with dementia. Even if she was a Karen she wasn't attacking anyone and shouldn't have been brutalized. Police have done those type of things to us so long that they think they can do it anyone. I saw the whole video of what they did and how they laughed about it. I need to spend my golden years outside of this country.

  9. Make sure you name the prison he ends up in, so hell on earth is assured for this piece of $hit. Remember when cops get away with crimes like this, it becomes a training video for them. now this will put the fear of Jesus in them.

  10. It's always a wonderful thing to watch one of these horrible disasters of humans with badges get dealt with by any means necessary.

  11. So, if they think this is okay for their own, why would anything expect anything more for others, like the gentleman on the panel said.
    She had dementia which manifests in spurts. Her age should have been a clue enough to at least consider it. She was also skinny and no threat.

  12. Unfortunately when you put the police above the Citizens then you have a problem just going to be many people out here who will support this police officer policing needs to change the has to be Morecambe passionate policing more care more understanding they have to be more training but the problem is we are so desperate to get police officers that unfortunately we are scraping the barrel at the bottom this police officer was an absolute misogynist
