Crist Calls Hillsborough Abuse Shocking

February 13th, 2008 by flanews

The story is getting national attention. Now Governor Charlie Crist reacts to the shocking video of a Hillsborough County Deputy dumping a quadriplegic man out of his wheelchair and onto the floor. The governor was shocked after watching the video.

I think its terribly disturbing, said Crist. It goes beyond a pale by any compassionate persons standard. Im sure and I wonder if there maybe a civil rights issue to it. Were looking into it.

The deputy seen tipping the wheelchair has been suspended without pay. Three other officers on duty at the time are on administrative leave.
