Colorado cops fist bump and laugh at video of themselves ‘breaking arm and dislocating shoulder’ of 73-year-old dementia-suffering woman after she left Walmart without paying $13

Shocking new video shows two Colorado cops under investigation for their violent arrest of an elderly women with dementia laughing and cheering – and giving each other a fist bump – as they watched body-camera footage of the altercation hours later.

They were celebrating all while the 73-year-old woman was suffering in a jail cell, the photos reveal – disheveled and seeming to lose consciousness several times.

Loveland Police Officers Austin Hopp and Daria Jalali arrested Karen Garner on June 26, 2020, after she left Walmart without paying for a candy bar, a can of Pepsi and a t-shirt totaling $13.38.

The store later confirmed it had recovered the items and hadn’t lost any money.

City officials haven’t apologized to the woman or her family, according to the Loveland Reporter-Herald. The footage of the arrest went viral on social media after its release earlier the month in the wake of a new lawsuit against the department.

The suit says during the first hour Garner was in custody, she said: ‘They hurt my shoulders’ 22 times and ‘They hurt my wrists’ 13 times. She wasn’t given any medical treatment.
