WARNING: The following videos contains vulgar language that some viewers may find offensive.“You are a f****** full-on d***!” Jackson asserts to one state trooper. “You better recalculate, m***********.” EMS providers administered aid to the injured woman after Jackson was removed from the immediate scene by troopers of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Jackson, wearing a red shirt, is handcuffed and on the ground during one portion of the recording. Jackson hailed the release of the body camera footage in a Monday tweet. The retired Navy rear admiral and former White House physician criticized Carson County law enforcement in the message. “We have the best Sheriffs in the country here in the panhandle and north Texas. Unfortunately, the Sheriff in Carson County is not among them.”
Jackson did apologize for his language in a subsequent tweet, but defended his actions as necessary to provide medical care in what he described as a life-threatening situation.
I’m glad the video is out. It shows the incompetence of the authorities and their complete disregard for the young girl in distress. We have the best Sheriffs in the country here in the panhandle and north Texas. Unfortunately, the Sheriff in Carson County is not among them.— Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) August 15, 2023
The nature of the medical emergency isn’t clear. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
I will apologize for my language, but I will not apologize for getting upset & speaking my mind considering the circumstances. If I had to do it again, I would still step up & act in a life-threatening situation. I will ALWAYS help someone in need. I WILL NOT apologize for that.— Ronny Jackson (@RonnyJacksonTX) August 15, 2023
