Grant Medical Center suspends security officers after video shows man being detained


AND WE’LL HAVE MUCH MORE FROM DAVE COMING UP IN JUST A FEW MINUTES. ALSO TONIGHT, THREE SECURITY GUARDS AT GRANT MEDICAL CENTER HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED AFTER AN ALTERCATION LAST NIGHT WITH A MAN OUTSIDE THE VIDEO. THE CELL PHONE VIDEO OF THAT INCIDENT HAS BEEN SHARED THOUSANDS OF TIMES ON SOCIAL MEDIA. TED HART IS LIVE WITH MORE AND A CLOSER LOOK AT THE MAN INVOLVED. Reporter: DIFFERENT PEOPLE WILL LOOK AT THAT VIDEO AND COME TO DIFFERENT CONCLUSIONS. THE TRUTH IS, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WAS ACTUALLY BEING SAID AT THAT TIME. WE REALLY DON’T KNOW DETAILS ABOUT WHAT MAY HAVE TAKEN PLACE INSIDE THE HOSPITAL PRIOR TO THAT CONFRONTATION OUTSIDE. THE VIDEO ITSELF, THOUGH, TELLS PART OF THE STORY. MALENA JACKSON SAYS SHE WAS IN HER CAR WAITING FOR FAMILY MEMBERS WHEN SHE SAW THE FIRST SIGN OF TROUBLE. HE WALKED OUT. THEN YOU SEE THREE GUYS COME OUT BEHIND HIM. THEY’RE LIKE, HANDS ON THEIR BATON AND GUNS AND JUST WALKING. I WAS LIKE, WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON. THAT’S WHAT MADE ME GRAB MY PHONE, LIKE SOMETHING IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. Reporter: THE MAN IN THE VIDEO IS 38-YEAR-OLD SHELDON ADAMS. HIS FAMILY SAYS HE LIVES IN A GROUP HOME AND HAS A HISTORY OF MENTAL ILLNESS. THEY SAY HE OCCASIONALLY EATS AT THE HOSPITAL CAFETERIA. IN THE VIDEO, ADAMS CLEARLY TAKES A STEP TOWARD THE SECURITY OFFICERS AND IS SHOVED BACK. ONE OF THE GUARDS PULLS A BATON AND PEPPER SPRAY, AND ADAMS APPEARED THEN TO FLICK A CIGARETTE AT HIM. JACKSON WAS STUNNED. FOR HIM TO NOT BE RESISTANT OR NOT BE AGGRESSIVE, THEY TOOK IT TOO FAR. Reporter: THE HOSPITAL HASN’T SAID WHAT TOOK PLACE INSIDE THE HOSPITAL BEFORE ALL THIS. IN A STATEMENT, OHIO HEALTH SAID THE THREE SECURITY OFFICERS INVOLVED HAVE BEEN PLACED ON A FACT-FINDING SUSPENSION UNTIL THE INVESTIGATION IS COMPLETE. WHEN A SITUATION LIKE THIS OCCURS, WE TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY. AND ADAMS PLEADED NOT GUILTY TO THE DISORDERLY CONDUCT CHARGE. HIS FAMILY SAYS THEY ARE HOPING

  1. He is mentally ill that's why he was at the hospital. I'm sure they knew that from him going there regularly. The only Authority they had after they stepped out of that door was to call police.

  2. i would have started beating the shit out if then if i seen all of this going down. doesn't matter that hes black wouldn't matter uf he was white that was over the top

  3. Sorry but those guards are outside of the hospital grounds and anything they did was illegal. Once the man walked onto the public sidewalk the security is supposed to disengage.

  4. People always can tell you what law is, and facts you should look up!! But when it comes to the dangers of Albinos in large groups with no self control or professionalism they blame a person standing up to that gang of Albino thugs!!

  5. rent a cop is what i call them now im calling them abusers. there was no need for what they did to that man. talk about power going to their heads

  6. C'mon kiddies. We ALL know WHY they did it…because they WANTED to. Man's Black, and THAT'S enough for MOST of 'em. Since he eats at their cafeteria, they were probably already familiar with him, and we ALL know that if there's ANYONE these miscreants LOVE to abuse, it's Black folks with mental health, age, or physical issues. They WANTED to do it, they had the opportunity TO do it, and they DID it, being FIRMLY, THOROUGHLY convinced, that their lies would get 'em off the damned hook. SIMPLE, isn't it?

  7. Give any man/woman power and it will corrupt them. That is human nature. Unless we hold them accountable they will only grow bolder and more corrupt.

  8. He was BLACK, we ain't got no right to be in the hospital. WHITE'S no matter whether police or not can treat us any way they want for whatever reason they want.

  9. Why won't they are arrested and charged with assault I wonder because police are not your friend they only out there to extort money from hardworking people they beat and murder without repercussions welcome to the pig Nation

  10. If I catch those security guards I'm with your f**** ass so bad that they will never ever be able to work security again you're a disgrace they think they f**** cops that f**** c******* cuz that guy was doing nothing wrong they just a f**** bunch of abusers but I wish it was me that I would have whooped their asses all three of them

  11. So he advances at the guards and flicks a lit cigarette at them. If a man did that to me I would also defend myself and beat the crap out of him.

  12. True demonstration of lack of training. These guards are working at a hospital and therefore should have training to deal with people who suffer from a mental illness .notice i said suffer! They suffer enough with day to day life now you're going to beat them to a pulp cause you don't have the heart to deal with them. Shame on those guards and the people responsible for hiring them!

  13. WHITE COWARDS AT THEIR BEST PUT THEM IN THE HOOD WITHOUT A GUN OR BADGE THE DEVILS WILL SHIT ON THEY SELF FUCKKKING
    WEAK WHITE AMERIKKKANS THE RUSSIANS SAID IT BEST WHITE AMERIKKKANS ARE WEAK TAKE ALOOK
    AT TRUMP HE ONLY BULLY THE POOR THE DEFENSELESS, THE ELDERY, AND THE DISABLED BUT WHEN IT COMES TO OTHER MEN WITH POWER HE COWARD DWN HE KISS ASS AND SUCKKK DICKKK LIKE HE DOES WHEN HE 👀 PUTIN
    MY BLK FOLKS WE GOTTA DO BETTER I AM SO SICK
    OF THIS MLK BULLSHIT
    MARCHING AND HOLDING
    PRESS CONFERENCES FUCK THAT BY ALL MEANS NECESSARY ON THESE DEVILS

  14. He took one step and threw a cigarette. He's only outnumbered 3 to 1. So these security guards are obviously in fear for their lives.

  15. 'We the people' should be able to defend ourselves against tyrants w badges.. w/o recourse. Cops.. security guards.. whomever. If they knew theres a chance of them collecting an ass-kicking.. they'd surely have enough sense to tweak their behavior.

  16. Update final outcome OhioHealth asked that charges be dropped against Mr. Adams, nothing else about the security guards. Stated that they are continuously reviewing their policies and training.

  17. What these Security offers need someone to take a bat and bust their nuts to see how they like it this was just a racist Act hopefully they get their ass sued

  18. Fire this Animals NOW!!! THE HOSPITAL needs to stand up for what is right!! I hope the poor man sues the Xxxx out them!!! I Would not feel safe to know this kind of Animals are the security there!

  19. There was no reason for the pepper spray and to be struck like that. Those GAURDS need to be hit a few times with those sticks , while being placed in handcuffs . Fire there asses

  20. Not only should they be fired,but what ever punishment they did to this man,should be atleast tripped the pain back to them the fucktards

  21. That’s first-degree assault he took out an ASP which is probably not legal for him to possess he then used any illegal weapon pepper sprayed the man and then further assaulted him this is 100% slamdunk felony

  22. In United States if you’re a documented individual who is mentally L it means almost anybody can assault you and is nothing you can do about it

  23. If he is eating and buying and being quiet he can stay. I don't bother people that keep to themselves even if you're a regular.

  24. This Sheldon with his 'mental illness' is a burden to society along with these cowboy wannabes. This country has no chance…

  25. You know one thing those Devils always get away with s*** you can . Now they're going to say he did something in the hospital but they didn't have to do that to him we will standing up wasn't a bunch of wicked ass demons

  26. should have just put him against the wall cuffed and called police,he looks under the influence falling backwards and what not as a liscenced security officer here in Jersey I would not have escalated it that far..no need for pepper spray or a button or slamming to the ground there were three of you..put him against wall cuff up let the police deal with it

  27. The whole point of Situation Awareness… is to prevent escalation – Not to start it or use it as an excuse to trigger or force a
    Preemptive conflict.

    If you "know" someone is overwrought, suffering from emotional distress… Why go "poking the Bear"?
    Examples: If you know someone is attached to his pet dog, service animal – why in the hell would you go in his house and kick his dog? Seems you might ask them to put the dog in room – BEFORE – coming in the house? Or – have a warrant?…or have some idea of who lives in the house, if they have disabilities? There are laws – then there are LAWS/common sense!

    If you know or see a person smoking a cigarette (which you "should know", is self-calming behavior, many emotionally stressed people will perform). Why in the hell do you tell him he can't smoke People are not hat hard to read…

    if its not bothering anyone or not prohibited by "Posted" signage? It might be better to NOT challenge the person, but calmly walk with them to a safe area where they can smoke …with out going Cop/Security guard 'gangster' after hey comply – provoking an obvious chain of events – bound to elicit an escalating series of easy to predict negative responses.

    I saw a video – couple of cops who went to a yard of people holding a family barbecue; who decided it would be cool to pour water on the steaks they were grilling.

    They were surprised(?) … when a near riot broke out! It didn't help that they were '"other ethnic"/white cops breaking up a black family gathering. responding to a complain from "other ethic"/ neighbors! …. How could anything wrong come from that?….Maybe – because it looked like the cops were taking sides?…. seems "Fair" to me…Wonder why neighbors can't get along – even when the cops are "nice"?

  28. If 25,000 of us stop paying taxes and ride all over the country killing bad pigs, what could they do about it. Look into the Servile wars of Rome. 20,000 people can bring the government to the negotiating table

  29. Three individuals who will hopefully run into Ms. Karma. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Basic decency as well as a fundamental Christian principle.

  30. Police training dictates that common sense is not to be used.
    But attacking like wild dogs and aggression is the way to go. Clearly that man was either drunk, high or mentally ill. He was outnumbered 3:1 and clearly they still were scared to death of that black man!

  31. Three dummies! They should be arrested and the hospital should be sued for hiring them idiots! That was a trap and they fell for it.

  32. Don't worry people! JESUS IS COMING SOON! and everyone will give an account for their actions, and His punishment are for eternity. To God be the Glory.

  33. Suspended? REALLY? One of these bastards was going for his handgun. These bully’s need to have their licenses pulled, be fired and never work in this field ever again.

  34. Some of these idiots think they are cops , is happening very often some companies even hire people with criminal records to work as security guards, they gave them power and even a gun when they not suppose to have one. They should be fired and put these cops wanna be in jail they are mad ‘cause they fail the test to get into the police

  35. SUSPENDED?!
    Why weren't these criminals arrested and charged with a multitude of crimes and civil rights violations? This is appalling and the hospital should have the shit sued outta them!!

  36. SIMPLE, THNX TO YOUTUBE, EVERYONE ON THE WHOLE UNIVERSE NOW SEE HOW THESE WHITES SUPREMACIST PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF ISRAEL TREATS BLACK AMERICANS IN GENERAL…TREATED AS SUB HUMAN… AS SLAVES, LIKE THE GOOD OLD DAYS, ACCORDING TO THEIR SUPREMACIST LEADER, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP…!!!!!!
    WTF… THESE 3 WHITE SUPREMACIST RACE SOLDIERS ARE NOT CHARGED FOR ASSAULT…. THIS IS THE PROBLEM… WHEN ONE OF THEM (WHITE MAN) GET INJURED, ALL HELL BREAK LOOSE IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT WHEN A BLACK MEN GET BEATEN UP SENSELESSLY…. OH, THE BLACK MAN IS A MENTALLY UNSTABLE GUY, SO HE HAS TO BE BEATEN UP, AND THE WHITE MAN WHO DID IT, ONLY GET SUSPENDED AND WALK FREE…. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. You were taught as a kid (don't hit anybody until they hit YOU) ..wellll police are teaching us all NEW RULES. ..so you better HIT or SHOOT them 1st. Because obeying and complying and being docile still ends up getting you Brutalized. (They are uncooth WILD ANIMALS, and must be treated as such!!

  38. I work security in a hospital and I can't touch anyone I would be fired and charged with assault. I would need bail money.

  39. I know what I saw, and nothing I saw validates what they did to this man. I get so tired of we don't know hat happened before they attacked the man. They only say this when a case has black people as the victim of abuse.

  40. Who cares what happened in the hospital. The dude was outside, now call real cops, monitor, and walk away.

  41. I am a security supervisor in downtown LA and I would never do anything like that nor would I allow any of my guards on duty to act like that. I always treat people with respect.
    You can also tell when someone has mental illness.
    It really makes me upset and disappointed when I see security officers do things like this.

    Everybody watching this please know that not all security officers act like dummies. Those security guards and more importantly that supervisor are dummies. If that supervisor would have gave the right instructions none of that would have happened.
    It's the supervisor that sets the tone and he should have set the proper tone.

  42. I really think it was at its very dangerous when somebody makes an alternation on your guard at any point because being a security guard is very specific and them harming you imagine that would harm and anybody else know besides you and that type of facility that's that moment in life. At that moment so what these young guys did they protect themselves from with the young guy do to them

  43. that was a step to leave the area, shouldve made a hole and let go, or take him inside and care for him.The butt toss was a reaction to the push, natural reaction

  44. So i used to do security for a hospital you get alot of crazies coming in and out some who are actually 51/50 and other's who are on meds or drugs. Were only seeing a small part if what happen id give the guards the benefit of the doubt.

  45. Well he at least has three hots and a cot now, as for the security thugs well get a meal in there next jobs as dish washers

  46. Better to have a gun and not need it. Or need a gun and not have it. Small minded, limp dick assholes behind any badge will make u wish u had that gun.
