Cops Severely Beat 70-yr-old Man Suffering From Diabetic Attack Because They Assumed He Was “Drunk”

When dealing with police, the average person is always guilty until proven innocent.

Apparently this rule even applies to senior citizens who are experiencing medical emergencies.

On January 4th of this year in San Antonio a 70-year old diabetic was brutally assaulted by police at a traffic stop because they had suspected him of being drunk.

However, the man was not drunk, but was actually feeling ill and experiencing a diabetic attack.

70 year old Thomas Mathieu was spotted by police while he was stopped in a turn lane, and they immediately thought the worst.

When they approached the vehicle, Thomas was not speaking coherently and seemed very tired, but according to witnesses was showing textbook symptoms of a diabetic experiencing blood pressure issues.

The police unfortunately waited to check whether or not the man was a diabetic, until after they thoroughly stomped him into the ground, causing injuries to his face, head, arms, and torso.


Thomas also had three of his ribs broken in the scuffle.

He said the last thing that he could remember was pulling over to the side of the road because he felt that his blood sugar level was getting low.

Mathieu said that, “I don’t know what happened from there on, I woke up with my face in the ground.”

I know officers are trained how to deal with diabetic situations but apparently there was no recognition of that situation here,” he added.

The story has actually received some local media coverage, because a member of this mans family is a local reporter for News 4 San Antonio.

The officers claim that they were merely trying to get the poor man out of the driver’s seat.

However, the dash cam footage shows that Mathieu posed no threat to other drivers.
