Police Slam Disabled Legally Blind Man Just Leaving Work To The Ground

Legally blind Eric Wilson was injured when a Little Rock police officer slammed him to the ground.
He had just left work at the Lighthouse for the Blind around 4 p.m. June 1st. After missing the bus he started walking home along 65th Street. Around that time police claim they received a call about someone fitting Wilson’s description running away from, or chasing someone, who appeared to be afraid.
Wilson is legally blind and only sees shadows. He explained he didn’t know who was calling him, but started walking toward the voice. He explained that before he was slammed to the ground the officer told him to put his hands behind his back,”I was trying to figure out what was going on and before I knew it, I was slammed to the ground,” Wilson said.

In the police report the officer explained that Wilson pulled away violently, causing him to lose his grip, and that he was scared Wilson would strike him or his partner with handcuffs, but as the video below indicates, that was not the true story. Wilson explained that he couldn’t see anything or the person calling to him, so he didn’t know what was about to happen. Police also claimed they saw a black handle hanging from his pocket, which we now know is the clock that reads Wilson the time! Wilson is considering filing a lawsuit.
Little Rock police have refused to comment in this ongoing investigation.

    I am so sick of police its ridiculous they are the most useless if you want to try and call them human beings I have seen in my life, their pathetic liars thank god for camera’s and video I believe this abuse to people around the country has been happening for longer they we know. If I had my choice for every policemen who has abuse somebody in the community needs to shot in firing squad or put to death, its no longer to protect and serve, it abuse and harass people.

    What happened to communication. Mr. Wilson obviously didn’t have anything to hide. When the officers called him “Hey” he stopped and walked toward the voice. raised his hand and put his hands behind his back. This is in no way good police work and now there is a investigation and possibly and lawsuit filed and time off for the officers.

    delusional which will result in much more innocent blood being shed on both sides now. Now it is obvious that this is hate and it is fueled from high places that will never be high enough

    THIS incident is so nuts you can see the first cop doing his make my day walk and i can understand both sides to a point just watch video no audio hmmm did the police not want the audio to be recorded did this poor gentleman inform officers hey im blind . And hopefully the gentleman lawyer can get the call description of why thy stopped him hmm saying he matches describtion lets hear the call that sd tht i bet there wasnt one or elsewhere ..i feel police tatics should be teviewd and retrained in academys and every taser should be off market and audio and videos on police officer cant be adjusted at all.
