Police ‘pepper-spray double amputee and take prosthetic legs away’

A double amputee was made to crawl away after cops allegedly took his artificial limbs off him during a protest about racism and police brutality.

Witnesses said the protester was unarmed and was not being violent when he was pepper sprayed on Sunday in Columbus, Ohio, before his legs were taken away from him. He had to crawl off to get medical help while other demonstrators rushed police to get his limbs back.

Footage from the scene appears to show him being helped by other protesters who had managed to retrieve the legs. He can be heard howling in pain on the ground while other protesters demanded officers hand over his legs and shouted for a medic.
