Bad policeman - level 2

Bad policeman - level 2

11-07-2014 07:00

A shocking video from the USA emerged. It shows policemen who talk to a man in a wheelchair.

When they are about to leave, the man runs over an officer’s foot. The policeman responds aggressively. He pushes the man over and makes him fall out of his wheelchair. The man says that he didn’t see the officer – he probably did not do this on purpose.

The officer is not allowed to work for the next 30 days, and he will be on probation for a year.

Difficult words: run over (hurt with the wheel), on purpose (he didn’t want to do it), probation (time when you are watched and you must not do anything wrong).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Are you afraid of the police?
