(Support Free Thought) - Muskogee, OK — An infuriating video was uploaded to social media this week showing multiple police officers attack a disabled veteran in a Walmart. The veteran was pulled from his wheelchair, thrown to the floor and pepper sprayed after asking for the store’s policy on showing identification to purchase alcohol.

The victim, 36-year-old Jason Williams was attempting to purchase champagne for New Year’s Eve at the Muskogee Walmart when employees asked to see his identification as well as the identification of his family members who were with him. Because his family members were not purchasing anything at all, Williams asked to see the policy that required family members to produce identification.

“Instead of being greeted with the policy, I was greeted with six of Muskogee’s not so finest,” Williams said.

Police tell a different story and claim that Williams caused a disturbance after he was asked for his identification.

“He became hostile and created a disturbance, including cussing Wal-Mart employees,” Public Information Officer Anderson said. “Officers were called to the scene. He also refused to identify himself to officers while they were investigating the incident.”

When police arrived, instead of simply telling Williams to leave, they demanded he show them his identification or face arrest for obstruction.

Williams, having committed no crime simply refused to identify himself, but this assertion of his rights caused police to escalate the situation.

“I didn’t want to give up my ID, because I didn’t want to be in any kind of system for any reason, especially not for something this stupid,” Williams said. “They told me I had to present my ID because I was being charged with obstruction. I told them as politely as I could that I’m not stupid, that obstruction is a secondary charge.”

For refusing to identify himself, police then arrested Williams.

“He was told he was going to be placed under arrest for obstruction and that he was trespassing on Wal-Mart property,” Anderson said. “He was asked to leave Wal-Mart and to get into his wheelchair from the Wal-Mart motorized cart.”

According to police, Williams began resisting police and he’s accused of striking one of the officers. According to Williams, however, he wanted nothing other than to leave the store.

“I didn’t want nothing to do with this. I wanted to go home. I tried to leave and they refused to let me leave,” Williams said. “I suffer from anxiety. I didn’t want to deal with it. I just wanted to go home. I tried to back up the little cart buggy. An officer stepped behind it. From the moment they walked in they were trying to get me for assault on an officer.”

As the video shows, multiple cops surround the disabled veteran and begin prying the distressed man from his wheelchair. The video does not appear to show Williams striking an officer. It does, however, show him being thrown to the ground and scream in agony as he’s doused with pepper spray.

“He continued to resist officers until he was placed into handcuffs,” Anderson said. “EMS was called, and he was transported to Saint Francis Emergency Room for his claimed injuries.”

According to the Muskogee Phoenix, Williams said that the takedown, which involved officers placing Williams on the floor and straddling him, exacerbated existing neck and back injuries sustained during service in the Army. Williams was taken from Saint Francis’ Muskogee hospital to the Tulsa location, where he will be admitted for examination, he said.

“As of this moment, their actions directly caused me to lose use of my left leg,” Williams said. “They’re checking me in to see a neurosurgeon.”

The entire interaction, according to Williams was over the simple fact that this disabled veteran wanted to see why he was being denied a purchase.

“It was pretty much, I tried to buy some alcohol with my family together, and I was denied, and I wanted to see the policy as to why I was denied, and they kept me intentionally to wait for the police and then say I was asked to leave,” Williams said. “Instead of the police devolving the situation, they increased the situation.”

Below is the disturbing video.

DTOM - You're so right.  The taxpayer always ends up with the bill.  Hopefully everyone who sees this will make up their minds concerning how this was handled by WalMart and the police.

I hope he sues WalMart and the police dept. and gets a nice big settlement.

The only prob is, any police settlement money comes from the taxpayer...not the roided up thugs responsible.

Remember, vets will see this, and will make up their minds, long before the day when the jackbooted knuckle-draggers in black come to kick in the door.

A little display of whats to come at Walmart in the future?-

Show this to those tricked to enlist.

Why did they have to 1) remove him from the wheelchair?  2) straddle and hold him down? and 3) send 5 policemen?  He certainly wasn't able to run away, 

His family doesn't have to show ID if he's buying alcohol.  (Besides, I hear asking for ID is racist.)

I hope he sues WalMart and the police dept. and gets a nice big settlement.
