Can you say 1983? Deputies dump paralyzed man from wheelchair

Can you say 1983? Deputies dump paralyzed man from wheelchair

Off topic for us here in the Law Blog, but I just found this story horrifying:

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that one of their own deputies is in trouble after she was caught on tape dumping a paraplegic man out of his wheelchair while he was being booked into jail, and three supervisors were nearby at the time but did nothing.

Video shows Deputy Jones dumping Sterner out of his wheelchair and onto the floor while she is booking him into the Hillsborough County Jail. The tape also shows the deputy then searching Sterner as he lay on the floor.

Here is the [1] video:
