    That last paragraph reads like something Kirk would write.

    Revina Garcia says she was having a bad diabetes attack and was incoherent when deputies, who thought she was drunk, yanked her out of her car and shoved her to the pavement.

    You'd think these diabetics would wear a medical alert bracelet. Maybe tattooed on. :)

    I know someone who has the same problem but sometimes it happens so fast there is nothing you can do to prevent it. His sugar would just bottom out suddenly sometimes. You can tell be because hell start acting goofy but he doesnt have a clue. You have to say hey jeff your acting like a retard go check your sugar.

    This bitch didn't have a "diabetic" episode. She had an "I don't know how to properly manage my diabetes medicine" episode. Diabetes causes high blood sugar, not low.

    Anyone that's prone to low blood sugar attacks needs to discuss their insulin/drug dosage with their physician. When the instant cure for low blood sugar is to drink a fucking Pepsi, there's no excuse for these morons to be getting in accidents. The cop didn't beat this bitch enough.

    Allow me to inform you that you have no idea what you're talking about. My Mom used to have wildly fluctuating blood sugar for no apparent reason. The doctors tried adjusting her insulin dosage up and down for fucking 30 years before giving up and telling my Dad & me to test her blood sugar half a dozen times a day and adjust for it that way. OTOH, she also didn't drive because she never knew when this shit would happen.

    Wilford Brimley wouldn't take that shit...then again, Wilford Brimley checks his blood sugar, and he checks it often. So he wouldn't be in such a predicament.

    Settle down, Dr. Quinn. The exception does not prove the rule.

    One thing I'll say about dealing with diabetics and traffic stops, a person who is diabetic can exhibits signs of being intoxicated. Their breath will sometimes be sweet giving off appearance they've been drinking. That's why if a person diabetic they suggest wearing medical bracelets. If a person is mid swing of a diabetic episode and unable to communicate it is not unreasonable for a cop to think the person is severely drunk especially after a accident.

    I'm not saying this guy is right in what he did or defending him.

    Are you suggesting chronic drunk drivers should get diabetes medical alert bracelets?

    I've known two assholes who would let their sugar be low at least 3 times a year. One was a tenant/friend of mine who would need an ambulance to come to his home. I'm telling you every time his wife would say, "I was telling him for hours to eat something". Passive aggressive pothead asshole.
    The other guy was a guy I worked with. He'd take his pills then "forget" to eat. One time he was driving us to get food at 10pm and it was like he was .25 drunk, running lights and swerving. I would have laughed if he got pulled over and beaten. He almost killed us.

    I hope they are both blind with no finger or toes.

    No, as I said before I'm not commenting on anything other than my experience with folks who have diabetic episodes while operating a vehicle. Some people have episodes so bad that they can no communicate at all. I'm not defending or excusing anyone with this case I don't know all the facts. All I know is what I read above and from the posted video.
