What the hell have we become?

I say we because I live here and used to think this country stood for something.

Cops Put Hood Over Woman’s Head, Restrained Her, Choked Her Out to Draw Blood – Lawsuit

Austin, TX– A lawsuit has been filed alleging that Austin police put a hood over a woman’s head, restrained her arms and legs, put her in a choke hold until she went limp, and pinned her arm down with a boot, all to draw her blood over a DUI test.

Caroline Callaway is suing the city of Austin, Travis County, Austin police officers, county sheriff’s officers, Pro-touch Nurses and one of its employees, alleging unlawful search and seizure, excessive force, assault and battery, negligence and medical malpractice, Court House News reports.

The scene painted by the lawsuit reads like the horror stories we hear from Guantanamo Bay, yet it took place here in Texas- over a would-be misdemeanor.

The woman, who suffers from an anxiety disorder that she uses prescription medications to manage, was arrested by Officer Patrick Oborski after refusing to submit to a breathalyzer test.

Callaway claims that upon arriving at the Travis County Jail she was taken into a small padded room and strapped into a chair with her legs, wrists, and shoulders restrained; all while surrounded by police officers.  The situation caused the woman to tremble with fear, which she says prompted the officers to place a “protective hood” over her head.  The bag covered her eyes, nose, and mouth and made it difficult for Callaway to breathe.

Callaway was still shaking during the first attempt at drawing blood, which reportedly caused the needle to pop out of her arm and blood to squirt onto one of the officers.
