On March 13, after not being able to find her 12-year-old son for an extended period, Amy Olzak called the Idaho Falls Police Department to report him missing. Instead of helping her son, however, according to Olzak and multiple witnesses, the officer who responded brutally attacked this young boy.
“I just wanted them to help me find where he was,” said Olzak. Ironically, this would never happen.
After spending all day looking for him with friends, Olzak finally located her son. Olzak then called the police to inform them that she no longer needed their services. However, police were not done yet.
“I just wanted them to be aware. They came over. I talked to an officer for a minute, and he walked over to my son. Then he put my son’s hand behind his back and like lifted him up in the air and slammed his face into the trunk of a car,” said Olzak.
The car belongs to Olzak’s friend, Courtney Beck, who also witnessed the officer attack this child.
