Bad policeman – level 1

11-07-2014 07:00

This happens in the USA. Policemen are talking to a man. The man is in a wheelchair. Somebody films this.

The man runs over an officer’s foot. The policeman gets angry. He pushes the man. The man falls out of his wheelchair. He says that he does not see the officer. He probably doesn’t do it on purpose.

The officer is in trouble. He cannot work for a month. When he starts to work again, he will be watched. He cannot do anything wrong again.

Difficult words: run over (hurt with the wheel), angry (mad), officer (policeman), to do something on purpose (to want to do something and do it).

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

Are you afraid of the police?
