Woman Suffers Third-Degree Burns After Police Pin Her To Burning Hot Asphalt

Chris | InformationLiberation

Las Vegas police reportedly pinned a woman to burning hot asphalt for three minutes straight as her skin literally cooked on the street. She suffered third-degree burns as a result, and her leg was left severely disfigured.

From 8 News Now:
LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas woman is suing the Metropolitan Police Department saying she was literally given the "third degree."

Local artist Cristina Paulos received third degree burns during an encounter with police after a traffic accident.

It all began on a hot August day when a car crash and a woman's arrest led to severe burns from scorching pavement and a lawsuit alleging excessive force.

"So, this is two years of healing. So, it's got a lot better, it used to look a lot worse," Paulos said.

The images of the woman's injuries are graphic. She fears she will forever bear the scars from an encounter with Metro Police in Aug. 2011.

"I was held down by police and security at the Palms property. And from that, I got third degree burns on my legs," Paulos said.

She admits driving her car into the exit lanes of the Palms hotel and hitting two cars in the process. But she was not drunk or high on drugs. She was later diagnosed as having a mental disorder that she now manages with medication. But her behavior was definitely erratic following the crash. She first ran from the scene then returned and climbed into one the car's she hit.

Casino surveillance video shows her getting out of that car and coming face-to-face with a Metro officer, who, after a brief interaction, takes her to the pavement. The high temperature that day was 104 degrees, but the asphalt was certainly much hotter.

"I literally thought I was in hell, what I believed was hell at the time because my flesh was burning. My skin was burning," she said.

The I-Team wanted to see how long Paulos' body was in contact with the asphalt. A clock was started the moment she came into contact with the pavement and it shows she was on the hot ground for more than three minutes.
The police denied any responsibility and said her injuries were her own fault.

70178 With great respect, I applaud the injured veterans coming back from the wars. Especially those who are so injured as to make them want to commit suicide. Suggestion. Make your life mean something anyway. Research these out of control cops and take your anger out on their families. Make these ignorant bullies feel the pain they dish out on a daily basis. Sure, I recognize that their families are 'innocents', but these families are the only (if that) thing these neanderthals might, just might care about. It certainly isn't us. Take your 'final war' to them and give your dying some appreciated meaning for the rest of us. Otherwise, you are just going to be a number and perhaps, maybe, the gov't will pay attention to your fellow warriors, and the law enforcement goons bosses will stand up and clean up their own pigpens. If a cop ever treated me or my family like they are doing, I would not hesitate to take it 'home' to them.

121220 I wonder how these officers would have treated her if she were not a stranger but their daughter or wife..
I bet they would have dealt with this much more peacefully and this horrific injury would have been prevented!
Cops need to calm the fuck down and realise they are enforcers of peace and justice instead of being violent brutes that spark fear in the publics hearts.. What happened to the love?

17478 Why do we not ever find out these cops' names, addresses, phone #'s, email addresses, facebook pages, and then deluge them personally with our opinions? Make their lives hell for once. If enough of us do it often enough, they will begin to think twice about abusing us, we far outnumber them, we are legion.

162224 We are seriously remiss as a culture if we tolerate this kind of abusive behavior from the police.

Why the police are not given professional training in dealing with mentally ill, physically unwell, and psychotic individuals in a humane way says volumes about us as a civilization.

I suppose we should all just work from our homes, have our groceries delivered, and order everything from Amazon to avoid any possible encounter with the police since they always turn every encounter into a confrontation.

9793 Thank god for the Police. She now wears the scares to remind her of HER OWN ACTIONS along with the $100K doctor bill. That's awesome!

Maybe 50 percent of the people on this site noticed in the video the Officer was right handed, MAYBE. Less than one percent of you noticed what the "BRIEF INTERACTION" actually was. While this Officer was attempting to keep his cool with this person her first action was to reach for his gun with her left hand. THAT IS A MAJOR NO NO!
I want everyone to think how they would feel if she was able to retrieve this Officers weapon and she was standing in front of one of your family members.
