Police Ram Car Into Mentally Ill Dad Before Officer Stamps On His Head

A father of three is in a coma after he was struck by a police car and allegedly booted in the head by an officer as he was arrested in Melbourne, Australia.

The astonishing video demonstrates the 32-year-old man with mental health problems wandering in the middle of the road before he is approached by a marked police car.

The car can be seen driving into the man, who is tossed up on to the bonnet for a few seconds, before hitting the floor.

Six police officers can then be seen pinning the man, who has bipolar to the ground at about 4.10 pm and it’s alleged that one of the policemen then booted the man in the face.

The dad was said to have been waiting for a mental health bed at the Northern Hospital but chose to leave after waiting for more than a day in the emergency department.

Hospital staff contacted the police to bring him back, but the forceful arrest unfolded and he was left needing to be put in an induced coma and the man’s father Glen told a media outlet that he was crushed by the incident and that his son suffers from bipolar disorder and he said that the officers could have killed his son and that it was disgusting.

Dad Glen said the family aren’t allowed to see their son and that it will take days for doctors to determine whether he’s sustained any permanent brain damage and he added that his son, who runs a thriving business and has just finished building his dream home, had not suffered from a mental health episode in nine years.

One eyewitness told a media outlet that the man was tackled to the ground by police and booted continually and said that they kicked him in the head repeatedly whilst they also had five police officers who had already tackled him to the ground.

Other eyewitnesses filmed the incident in a nearby car while watching the arrest unfold in horror as sirens blared.

“Am I witnessing this? What the f**k” one bystander can be heard saying.

“Are you f***ing kidding me,” another person shrieks from inside the car.

A spectator screamed, “you’ve got his head” as officers pinned the man down on the traffic island.

There needs to be a special unit in any police department in all countries for mental health issue calls – that way experienced and understanding people can actually help someone having a breakdown or an episode, instead of resorting to excessive violence, and it’s no wonder why people don’t trust the police anymore and how is trampling on a mentally ill person’s head serving the community?

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
