A 64-year-old Alzheimer’s patient was the victim of police brutality in the very place that was intended to be his safe haven — a nursing home.

The aged man, James Howard, was allegedly acting unruly with nurses at his old folks’ home in Peru, Indiana on June 17, 2012. When Howard would not calm down, staff called the police.

Officer Doug Martin and his partner Officer Jeremy Brindle showed up on the scene shortly.

According to Courthouse News, Martin and Brindle entered Howard’s room to find the 64-year-old wearing no clothes except for socks. He was sitting on a chair and apparently would not cooperate with the officers.

Brindle tried to handcuff Howard, but Howard was able to escape his grip. Martin then screamed “Taser!” and tasered Howard for over 30 seconds.

Martin was fired for excessive force and conduct unbecoming an officer. He tried to take his firing to court, but ultimately lost.

Martin’s termination was upheld by the Indiana Court of Appeals.

As reported by Courthouse News, “‘Jumper testified that Martin had specifically been instructed – in the recertification presentation – on the increased risk of death or serious injury for exposure over 15 seconds, whether due to multiple applications or continuous cycling,’ Judge Lloyd Bailey wrote for a three-member panel. ‘Intervals to achieve compliance were very short, with only a two-second interval between the third and fourth deployments. Moreover, it is noteworthy that Howard was handcuffed after the third Taser application,’ Bailey added.”

Based on the information available, it seems Martin’s termination was justified. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
