#insane - When police were called to an apartment complex in Munnsville, NY., they found a naked Pamela McCarthy who couldn't be controlled.
Two teenage boys who saw the entire incident say the 35-year-old initially fell down the flight of stairs that leads to their second-story apartment with her 3-year-old son rolling underneath her. She grabbed him up and dragged him across the parking near where the two boys were playing basketball.
She looked at one of the boys and came toward him, and he ran home to tell his dad. She then went back to her bleeding son, sat down, wrapped her legs around him and choked him while laughing and spinning around on the ground. That's when a neighbor yelled at McCarthy to leave the child alone.
She picked her son up and threw him a few feet away onto the ground again. Leaving the 3-year-old on the ground bleeding, she ran into that neighbor's upstairs apartment across the parking lot and attacked her for yelling. After being forced out, McCarthy came down and took all off her clothes off.
During the time McCarthy was attacking the neighbor in her apartment, McCarthy's boyfriend (the kid's dad) finally intervened. He had been out there the whole time screaming his girlfriend's name, but he was apparently too afraid to actually do something. He finally picked the child up and ran to a nearby store. McCarthy followed them into the road but eventually came back.
She tried to go up the stairs leading to her apartment, but she fell on her face. She got up and crawled on all fours to the top. She went inside, grabbed her pit bull, then threw herself and the dog down the stairs. That's when she got up and began choking the dog. By this time, a state trooped had arrived on the scene, and he asked her to get off of the dog. After she didn't respond, he pepper-sprayed her. After she didn't seem affected by the spray, he put a knee on her back and tried to pry her arms off the dog's neck to handcuff her. She didn't budge, so he warned her several times to let go or he would hit her with the juice.
After being tasered, he and paramedics were finally able to get her into handcuffs. EMTs strapped her down, but she went into cardiac arrest shortly after. She was immediately rushed to the hospital where she eventually died.
A guy who heard about the situation on a scanner, rushed over to tell the troopers that McCarthy had open-heart surgery two days prior.
Although there was no proof, witnesses believed she was high on bath salts because of her behavior.
Personally, based on the information given, I believe that the officer did everything by the book for a situation of this caliber, and should not be reprimanded. Do you think the officer should get in trouble for what happened, or was his actions justified? Remember, he didn't know about her heart surgery and she was like, choking a dog and eating pepper spray like Binaca.
