WATCH: Arizona Cop Beats Man Bloody, Own Department Says He Used Excessive Force

The Glendale Police Department released body-camera video of a police officer who investigators said used excessive force in taking an unarmed man into custody in June 2019.

Officer Joshua Carroll of the Glendale Police Department resigned from his position after he beat David Dulaney in the head so much that a puddle of blood formed on the ground and caused him to require medical staples on his head.

Glendale police announced in September 2019 that Carroll had handed in his resignation in response to the recommendation that he be fired, KTAR News reports.

The incident happened on June 13, 2019. According to police, Carroll showed up at an apartment complex in Glendale, Arizona about a report of a man sleeping in a car.

Carroll knocks on the window, Dulaney rolled down the window partially and said he was waiting for a friend.

Carroll tried to get information but Dulaney wouldn’t give his last name or date of birth. He then starts the car. That’s when Carroll pulls Dulaney out of the car and uses his stun gun on him.

Carroll then uses the stun gun to hit Dulaney in the back and the back of the head, police said. Blood is seen spilling from Dulaney’s head.

Dulaney was taken to the hospital where his head wound required staples, police said.

When asked about the altercation, Carroll told his sergeant he delivered blow after blow after blow to Dulaney’s head, while Dulaney said, “You’re hurting me,” police documents said. Carroll told his sergeant, “no offense, but that was exactly what I was trying to do, was to get that pain compliance,” according to police documents.

An internal investigation found Carroll used excessive force and they recommended that he be fired. But before that happened, Carroll resigned effective Aug. 31, 2019.

A Glendale police commander wrote the following in Carroll’s recommendation for firing:

“Officer Carroll has a pattern of discipline involving poor decision making that has escalated to a point that I no longer have confidence in his ability during routine contacts and stressful situations.

A review panel found Carroll was justified in deploying his taser, using a control hold, and striking Dulaney’s head with his hand – but not in hitting Dulaney in the head with a taser.

Interim Chief of Police Chris Briggs says,

“I am extremely disappointed in the actions of this former employee.”

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
