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. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. They couldn't wait to pretended like they were cops. They have equipment they don't use everyday. So, the first opportunity they get, use it. Its primarily done on vulnerable people. Security guards are not allowed to attack anyone. Fire them all this pending investigation crap is bull. Watch the video!

  5. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth unto his own flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth unto the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap eternal life.”
    ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:7-8‬ ‭ASV‬‬

  6. To bad the guy didn't have a gun . Could have got rid of 3 wannabe nazis pigs . Good thing I wasn't there would have been 3 pigs on the ground.

  7. What the FUCK is wrong with these damn RENT A COPS??? COULDN'T make it as REAL COPS, THEY need to be fired and then SHOT!!!

  8. “Fact finding suspension”…no doubt with pay. IE paid vacation. All these fuckers that get put on suspension should be WITHOUT pay. Stop coddling these pussies

  9. Yer let's beat the shit out of patients. I mean they only mess the place up do they? I'm wondering what they do to limb less people or the blind …and those people with heart or breathing issues I bet they get the second shift to come in early to help out stomping on those folk …

  10. No they won't white ted you are part of the problem we will pretend our lying eyes don't see what they see we will believe ted

  11. THIS IS…. REPREHENSIBLE!!!!! THESE ….3 STOOGES …ARE VIOLENT….MORONS!!!!
    LAWSUIT AGAINST THESE THREE AND FIRE ALL OF THEM!!!!!

  12. I know in NJ a security guard is not permitted to strong arm any individual let alone pepper spray, taze, strike or shoot. This might be an open and close lawsuit.

  13. No matter what kind of disorderly conduct took place, that was excessive force. Unless someone is being violent, that never needs to happen again, sue tf out of those mf's!

  14. If that was my loved one I’m loading the car down going to that hospital and beat them until they can’t even move because going to court will do no good anymore because they are criminals as well

  15. Security guards don't have any special legal privilege. They are just citizen in a uniform. They just kid napped and beat that guy.

  16. In my experience, security personal cause more problems then they solve and in many cases open the organization up to extremely expensive law suits. Either hire real cops or find a different solution.

  17. Words shouldn't have someone assaulted and justice is blind the security guards lack professionalism they should be charged

  18. Flicking the cigarette at someone is assault. Doesn’t matter what anyone thinks. Flick a cigarette at someone on the street see what happens. But security somehow has to take shit from idiots. Someone on the street would beat your ass, a cop would arrest you for assault of a public servant and security is the only one that has to take that crap. Y’all are a special kind of stupid.

  19. 0:27 ”We don’t know what was being SAID…..”
    The problem here is that words don’t strike you with anything except a deflation of your ego a little bit, and these RENT – A – COPS don’t have the legal right to put their hands on anyone unless egregious illegal and lethal actions were employed by the person being assaulted, any excuse of why these morons can be given a hint of a benefit of the doubt goes bye bye when the video clearly shows aggression was deployed when uncalled for. Charges should be filed against these stupid morons.

  20. Suspended ?
    They need to be fired and prosecuted on criminal charges !!!

    Why are hospital security carrying pepper spray and batons ?
    Oh, I forgot this is in Ohio !!

  21. another want a be cop. Thats assault. They need to be fired. They are a danger to the public. Fucking rent a cops!!!!!🖕🖕🖕🖕

  22. will has those rent a cops get a lawsuit for assault with a deadly weapon & false arrest cuz i think those asshole made the first move & the guy was not taking there crap

  23. First of all they do not pay you enough to get out there and have a physical confrontation with someone, as a security guard you have no arrest Authority your main job is to observe and report. If they had a problem with this gentleman they should have called law enforcement, but then to they May have killed him.

  24. Security guards are supposed to observe & report.. & call for law enforcement to step in & take over in for any restraint or removal of the public. A Security guard's job is not to pepper spray, beat with a baton & then have a total of 3 guards force you to the ground to restrain you that's a job for the police to kill.. I mean help.

  25. Not being aggressive? Flicking a lit cigarette in your face is OK?
    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
    If somebody did that to you lady, you would be telling them to shoot him!

  26. But it's one thing that we do know if you watch the video I don't care what went on in the hospital when he went outside he didn't lay a hand on them he has no weapon he's committed no crime so what was the purpose of white supremacist beating on black people that was the purposes was anybody can see that y'all always time I don't know what happened and how can we know what happened just then he's not putting no harm on them I don't care what he did in the hospital but what he did out there was nothing

  27. Understand people listen what he said that's partial of what we see this is what the media does to people color for 400 years I guarantee you they was black and he was white or 305 right on the spot Security offices

  28. The only thing more stupid and dangerous than a cop is a security guard. Why? Because they're so fucking stupid they can't get hired to be a cop. Since a cop is one step below a trash collector you can see the danger to normal human beings.

  29. Bullshit an more bullshit to cover their asses .These are not security they are asshole who think they can do anything they want. Send their asses to jail.

  30. Suspended hell, they should have taken the three security asses inside and administered lethal injections on the spot, patched up the man and offered a cash settlement.

  31. The way to fixed the problem is is to find where these gang live and kill their family go kill them all kill the mother now go and kill them now go kill them all kill

  32. Doesn’t matter what was said, words do not warrant that kind of treatment and I resent the newscaster in the red coat to insinuate that the actions of the the security guards might have been warranted

  33. you flick a cigarette at me, yeah I am going hands on and may the best man win. period, at the least i am going to hurt you, but its okay cause he is crazy black man so this is racist, my ass, your mental problems arent mine

  34. More violence will come down on us, the ppl. It's a war raging …brought down us by the elite. We will be coerced by a more and more fascist system. All based on the system that will collapse cause of a tremendous debt.

  35. Three on one who has a mental health problems over aggressive rent a pigs have no idea what this man is dealing with in his head cops have the authority to deal with this type of thing but they probably would have done same thing least they have authority to do so guards are not qualified to do that at all

  36. He was at a medical center and has mental issue. How does that equate with violence against him while having both hands in his pockets?
