The police department in Lafayette, Indiana, has released dash cam footage which shows lieutenant Tom Davidson pushing over Nicholas Kincade, a 25-year-old paraplegic who uses a motorized wheelchair to get around.

The incident took place in October of 2013. Police were called to the scene after receiving reports that Kincade was armed with a gun near a charter school.

Police didn’t find a firearm and said Kincade had a pocket knife that he carries for protection.

School officials told officers to inform Kincade that he wasn’t welcome near the school. Police told him he could be charged with trespassing and ordered him to leave.

As Kincade was leaving he accidentally ran over Davidson’s foot provoking the belligerent officer to shove the wheelchair-bound man to the ground.

“Now you’re going to jail!” say the officers to the paraplegic whom they just ‘protected and served.’

Davidson was not fired. Instead he received a 30 day suspension and 1 year of probation.

Should he have been fired? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
