Cop Found “Not Guilty” After Beating Man in Wheelchair

DULUTH — Officer Jouppi has been found “not guilty” of all charges in connection to a video showing him attack a citizen in a wheelchair.

The 50-yr-old citizen, Anthony Jackson, was rolled into a detoxification facility by police.

A staff member at the facility can be heard instructing Anthony that he was to surrender his jacket.

Being unable to walk normally, Anthony sarcastically asked, “Do you want me to throw it at you?”

The staff member also responded with sarcasm, “Do it and see what happens,” and then instructed Anthony to just leave the jacket on the chair.

Anthony started taking his jacket off.

That’s when officer Jouppi can be seen grabbing his arm and twisting it back.

Immediately Anthony said “Hey you can’t do that” and weakly swatted up at the officer to defend himself.

That’s when officer Jouppi began pounding in his face.

Anthony’s head can be seen snapping back after officer Jouppi punched him the first time.

But that wasn’t enough. Jouppi followed with a combination of punches until Anthony appeared to go limp.

The video then shows Jouppi grabbing Anthony by the throat and ripping him out of his wheelchair.

As Anthony’s limp body hit the ground, officer Jouppi can be seen kneeing him in the torso.

The staff member was visibly shocked by the officer’s violence and said “Dude…!”

The officer replied to the staff member, “Stand back or I’ll arrest you. You think people in wheelchairs can’t assault people?”

Despite beating a man who was obviously vulnerable and defenseless, officer Jouppi has been found “not guilty” of all charges, according to a report by The Free Thought Project.

He originally faced charges for 5th-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
