I know that all police and Law enforcement officers are not like this; However this is a disturbing trend I have been seeing a lot of other stories like this. The point is this needs to stop. There is no sense in this type of treatment toward anyone, much less a 78 year old man trying to help his wife. The the police dept have the audacity to charge him with 3 charges Elder Abuse (seems to me like this should go the other way) Refusing arrest, and assaulting a police officer. There are quite a few police officers who are overstepping their powers and need to be fired or something. This is no way to treat anyone.
