Cop Grabs Disabled Citizen by the Throat and Slams Him Out of Wheelchair, No Charges


PINELLAS — Sheriff’s Deputy Raymond Ferrio was the subject of an investigation after footage was released showing him abuse a disabled man in a wheelchair.

In the video, Deputy Ferrio can be seen dragging the man out of a wheelchair by his neck.

The disabled man does not appear to be posing any threat to Deputy Ferrio, and is obviously defenseless in the wheelchair.

But Deputy Ferrio can be seen in the video getting a hold on the man’s throat and literally dumping his body out of the wheelchair and into the ground.

The incident occurred when the disabled man was being taken to an infirmary.

According to reports, the man did not want to go into captivity, so he was putting his feet on the floor to prevent the cop from pushing him into the infirmary.

At no point in the video can the disabled man be seen trying to assault the officer.

Once Deputy Ferrio dumped the man onto the ground, he can be seen punching him and kneeing him.

The attack shattered the man’s replacement teeth.

When he was investigated, Deputy Ferrio admitted that he was “caught up in the moment,” and that his attack on the man was not justified, according to reports.

So here we have a cop admitting to using unjustified force on a disabled man, plus the video proof to go along with the admission, yet no conviction has occurred.

Instead, Deputy Ferrio has been “fired.” It is not known whether he is seeking work in a new department in a different city.

            you said that I allowed this, I beg to differ! I have voted in every election since I turned 18 that dates back to 1976. In all my years of boating I never voted for corrupt government, I never voted for corrupt judges, I never helped elect corrupt policeman to their offices, I never helped elect corrupt mayors, I read everything I could read about the person running for office, and they still lied to me! The system is corrupt from the head down! When it gets cleaned up this time it’s going to be real ugly.

    This was the only solution to the man made problems we have, and no one has desired that solution. So this is what we get.

    Prov 1:23-32 “Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

    Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and NO MAN REGARDED;

    But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and WOULD NONE OF MY REPROOF:

    I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

    When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

    Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

    For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

    They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

    Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

    For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.”
