Police Beat 71-Yr-Old Man, Shoot His Wife With Pepper Spray

When police officers respond to a situation, it is highly unlikely that everyone will be content with the outcome – some collateral damage might happen; this is what Graham County sheriff P.J. Allred first said when he was asked to comment on an alleged police brutality incident that took place in November 2014 in Pima, Arizona.

Now, exactly one year later his stance has changed – as have the circumstances.

Seventy-one year old Frank Barr Sr has filed a lawsuit after suffering permanent damage thanks to unnecessary force used by local police officers.




Listed as defendants are: the town of Pima, Sheriff Allred, Officer Jason Ellsworth and former deputies Daniel Wilde and Chris Palma.

Barr Sr citizen says the three cops named in the lawsuit violated his rights on November 8, 2014. In the 12 months following the incident Wilde was fired from his job, while Palma took up another role at the Safford police Department.

The case of the stolen go-kart

The incident that led to the lawsuit, which is expected to come to a total figure close to half a million dollars, came about from a woman’s complaint against her ex-husband.


The lady had a child with Barr Sr.’s son, Frank Barr Jr.

According to the lady, the senior citizen had gifted a white go-kart to his grandson a year ago on his birthday – he had built the toy himself.

The complainant claimed that her former husband had taken it with him.

Officer Ellsworth was sent to an address just after 6 PM to investigate the matter. He had graduated from police academy exactly three months ago.

    The second phrase in the final line of the story says it all: “we’ve turned over to the insurance pool”. In other words, it’s no skin off my ass, the citizenry pays for our violent behavior.
