HORROR: Bodycam Footage of 73-Year-Old Woman with Dementia Being Manhandled by Colorado Police For Trying to Shoplift $13 Worth of Items From Walmart Released

Loveland, Colorado – Horrifying bodycam video released recently shows two Colorado police officers manhandling a 73-year-old woman with dementia after she tried to shoplift $13 worth of groceries from a Walmart last June.

Karen Garner, 73, only weighs 80 pounds but she was manhandled and body-slammed by police officers, causing her to fracture her elbow and dislocate her arm.

Officers Austin Hopp and Daria Jalali arrested Garner on June 26, 2020 after she walked out of a Walmart with a candy bar, a can of Pepsi and a t-shirt without paying.

Walmart recovered the items and did not lose any money.

Police officer Hopp is seen approaching a visibly confused Garner as she was walking home from Walmart by herself.

Moments later, the officer slams Garner to the ground and cuffs her as she screams, “I’m going home!”

Attorney Sarah Schielke on Monday filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on behalf of the Garner family nearly one year after the violent arrest.

Colorado prosecutors opened a criminal investigation into the two officers and their supervisor after video of the arrest went viral on social media and sparked outrage.

New video released by the attorney for Karen Garner’s family shows officers laughing and fist-bumping over video of Garner sitting in her cell crying in pain from her injuries.

‘Ready for the pop?’ Hopp said referring to Garner’s arm dislocating.

When an unnamed officer asked, “What popped?” Hopp replied: “I think it was her shoulder.”

“I can’t believe I threw a 73-year-old on the ground,” Hopp said.
