California man paralyzed after police use 'pain compliance'
A 65-year-old Northern California man was paralyzed after being slammed to the ground during a traffic stop where police officers used “pain compliance” techniques and expressed disbelief when he repeatedly cried out “I can’t feel my legs,” according to a lawsuit announced Wednesday. Police video released by lawyers for Gregory Gross shows the incident and his arrival at a hospital, where Gross is handcuffed to a bed, his nose bloodied. “You want to grab his arms and flop him up on the bed?” someone asks after Gross tells a medical worker that he can’t feel his legs.news.yahoo.com
