Dayton Police Beat ,Tasered, Pepper-sprayed A Mentally Handicapped Teenager

Dayton police "mistook" a mentally handicapped teenager's speech impediment for "disrespect," so they Tasered, pepper-sprayed and beat him and called for backup from "upward of 20 police officers" after the boy rode his bicycle home to ask his mother for help, the boy's mom says.
     Pamela Ford says her "mentally challenged/handicapped" son Jesse Kersey, 17, was riding his bike near his Dayton home when Officer Willie Hooper stopped him and tried to talk to him.
     The mom says that "Prior to the incident described below, defendant Hooper knew Jesse and was aware that Jesse was mentally challenged/handicapped and a minor child."
     Nonetheless, Ford says, Hooper "apparently took Jesse's speech impediment for disrespect ... [and] began yelling at Jesse and after Jesse attempted to communicate with him[.] Jesse, being a minor and mentally challenged/handicapped, turned and rode his bike back to his home in an attempt to ask his mother, Ford, to help him communicate with defendant Cooper," according to the complaint in Montgomery County Court.     

 "At no point, even after being advised of Jesse's mental challenge/handicap by Jesse's family and numerous bystanders, did defendant Hooper, defendant Howard, or any other police officer present, attempt to communicate with Jesse or explain in terms he could understand as to why Jesse was being chased.
     "Jesse was handcuffed and hogtied before being placed in the back of a police cruiser.
     "Jesse was charged with assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest, and obstructing official business."

There goes couple of million in lawsuit.
I respect cops and I know they have a hard job, but when they do shit like this, its hard to feel sorry for them.
I mean how hard is it to figure out that someone might be mentally challenged? And it cannot be that hard to handle a 17 year old who is mentally challenged. Yea I know they got that retard strength thing going on but you don't need to beat, taser and pepper spray him.
What ever happened to "To Protect and Serve"? Just because they have a badge and pistol doesn't give them the right to treat the citizens like shit. So fuck the police, something needs to be done. I hope these pigs gets fired and is charged with excessive use of force and gets arrested and thrown in prison.
