Dash-cam video shows woman's arrest during diabetic episode

SANTA FE, NM -- Shocking dash camera footage shows a diabetic woman being dragged out of her car by Santa Fe County sheriff deputies, all while she was having a diabetic episode.

Revena Garcia's blood sugar dropped so low that she became extremely disoriented and could not open her car door. Deputies assumed she was a drunk driver and broke through her window, ripped her limp body from the vehicle, handcuffed her facedown on the hot pavement, where they left her, motionless. 

"I was just lost, I was just lost," Garcia said. She said her blood sugar was so low that she could have gone into a coma.

Garcia showed no resistance and there was no reason to be so rough with her, to throw her to the ground, and to leave her there.

  1. What kind of people are being hired today to become Police Officers? They don't seem to be well trained and just like to use brute force instead of reason. They should be protecting the people, not intimidating them! It looks as if we live in a military state where police officers seem to be more out of control than the people they are arresting. And many times arrests are being made for no reason at all, using excessive force on everyone! Very unprofessional indeed!

    2. Keep to our homes mostly I guess. If you're not out and about, they cant rough you up unless they come to your home and knock down your door; to which I add keep your guns close so IF(hopefully that is a HUGE if) that happens, you do what you have to to keep your family safe.

  3. The more I see of these police videos, the more I have become sure that the police enjoy their ability to rough people up and treat them as animals. America is becoming a police state (if we aren't already there) and it sickens me.

  4. This is why diabetics are supposed to wear bracelets.

    1. No... It's not. I don't see him checking for a bracelet anyway. This is not a way to treat anyone. This woman was not a threat at this point, it would not matter if she was drunk/high/narcoleptic. She should be treated like any other human being, it is a court and only a court that has the right to punish her.

    2. Agreed. This is also why SOME diabetics shouldn't even be driving at all. She could have killed someone else as well as herself.

  5. I don't like what happened but I can sure see HOW it happened. It does look to the untrained eye she was intoxicated. Police officers are not doctors, they are not nurses. They cannot diagnose. I do have a problem with her being on the hot pavement but the rest, I understand how it can happen.

  6. Speaking as a retired officer, No...they are not doctors. But in the absence of all other evidence (glassy bloodshot eyes, odor of alcohol and/or marijuana) they were entirely negligent in cuffing her & leaving her face-down (positional hypoxia is a very real threat)without an officer to keep an eye on her. I'm thinking the Municipality's Attorney is already talking a settlement & suspensions for the officers involved.

  7. Though the video camera is easy to function there are a few actions you need to follow to make sure you get the specific needs. Once you buy the digicam set up the software straight in your pc.
