    Robert Saylor's Death Ruled A Homicide: Man With Down Syndrome Died In Police Custody

    The death of a man with Down syndrome who was reportedly killed after lying face-down in police custody has been ruled a homicide.

    WJLA reports that Robert Saylor, 26, of New Market, Md., was asphyxiated on Jan. 12, according to a medical examiner's ruling late last week.

    A "law enforcement source familiar with the case" told the station that Saylor "went into distress when he was put face down on the ground."

    Police were reportedly called to a Frederick movie theater by employees who couldn't get Saylor to leave. He had come to the theater with a health aide, paid admission for "Zero Dark Thirty," but allegedly remained after it was over.

    That's horrible.

    Down syndrome people are some of the loveliest and gentlest people I know.

    For police officers to treat such a person in such a criminally insane and totally obtuse manner defies all logical explanation. Robert must have been completely terrified to death!

    What's the matter with US police these days? Are they on drugs?

    Are they totally unaware, totally uneducated, sub-intelligent members of society these days?
    Are they all high school drop-puts now?

    RIP Robert Saylor.
