This YouTube video sparked a yearlong investigation. A disciplinary review board recommended a 32-hour or 4-day suspension. But Chief Daniel Garcia thought the punishment should be more severe and gave Larrison a 40-hour or 5-day suspension. Typically that’s the maximum number of days you can suspend an officer.
So a 4 day punishment is adequate? And the asshole fights a 5 day punishment? They’re both unreasonable! That asshole needs to be fired. What he did could’ve given that girl brain damage.
Look, the cop assaulted her and he did it under the colors of his badge. He should be served with the same assault charges that the general public is charged with.
You can’t police cops and these are the consequences to be expected from this political epoch.
5 day suspension though bro? how about LIFETIME SUSPENSION, she clearly wasn’t doing anything, or if she did, she isn’t trying to avoid apprehension so what the fuck was the point in the superfluous degree of force? Yo, for real, fuck the police.
A war veteran who claims he was falsely arrested, beaten, and almost died due to neglect in an Oakland prison has launched legal action against the jail, claiming his pleas for help were ignored.
Kayvan Sabeghi, 33, was arrested during an Occupy rally in Oakland,California, in November last year. Video footage shows him being beaten with batons and he suffered a lacerated spleen which his attorney Dan Siegel says almost killed him after he was left without treatment for 18 hours in prison.
Siegel estimated damages in the case will be upwards of $1m but said his main aim was to change the practices at the jail. “The greater concern that he has is that there be some changes at the jail. It’s a big problem that the county has privatised health services in a public jail and that the company that’s doing it is more concerned about making money than providing quality care.”
A private company, Corizon, is hired by the prison authorities to take care of the medical needs of prisoners at Glenn Dyer. Corizon is named as one of the defendants in the suit, along with the county of Alameda, Sheriff Gregory Ahern and an officer at the county sheriff’s office.
On arrival at the prison Sabeghi told medical officers that he had been beaten by police and he offered to show them his injuries.
Corizon staff are accused of refusing to look at Sabeghi’s injuries.
The suit claims that his condition deteriorated and that despite showing severe distress and vomiting, Sabeghi did not receive treatment for 18 hours and was mocked by prison guards who dismissed his suffering as heroin withdrawal symptoms. It further claims that one officer filmed Sabeghi as he lay on the floor in agony and vomiting.
By the time his friends posted his bail, at 2pm the following day, he was so ill he could not lift himself from the concrete floor of his cell. Four hours later his friends came to the prison to get him out and an ambulance was called.
“There are a lot of people taken to jail who have substantial medical problems,” said Siegel. “There are a lot of people with drug and alcohol problems and they need to be adequately cared for … When you have guards who ridicule people with health problems, that’s a setup for failure. Maybe there are some who exaggerate their symptoms but I think they should all be checked out and if someone continues to complain, they should be given the benefit of the doubt. At least get a doctor.”
The suit further claims that a medical staffer did take Sabeghi’s blood pressure but reported, wrongly, that he was a diabetic and alcoholic and sought no further treatment for him.
Interviewed by and investigator after the incident, Trooper Cole can be heard trying to explain his decision and his actions.
“Prior to deploying your Taser, did you give a verbal warning that you were going to use it?” he was asked.
“No, I did not,” says Trooper Cole.
The FDLE found Cole’s actions justified, because troopers said Maudsley was running toward traffic along Highway 19, and might have caused an accident.

New York’s pigs are really asking for it.
Someday soon, they’re going to get it.
Five lesbians who say they were attacked because of their sexual orientation are angry with the D.C. police officers who responded for releasing the attackers and not taking a report.
Early Saturday morning, the women were walking in the 3100 block of 14th Street NW when two men confronted them. First, the men flirted, but after one of the women rebuffed their advances by saying she was with her girlfriend, the men began hurling obscenities at them, the women said.
It allegedly escalated to a physical confrontation when one of the women was punched in the face. When other women in the group went to her aid, more punches allegedly were thrown by both men.
“A very violent attack, leaving bruises on their faces and black eyes,” said A.J. Singletary, of Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence.
A bystander called police, but what happened when officers arrived was not what any of the victims expected. Police released the men.
“The police response kind of brushed off the attack,” Singletary said. “They said the women were hysterical, which is understandable. I mean, if you’re attacked, especially in that violent of a fashion, the expectation is that you’d be very upset about that, so the fact that the police said they were hysterical and even threatened to arrest the women themselves because they were so hysterical is absolutely unacceptable.”
The department’s gay and lesbian liaison took reports later, and Chief Cathy Lanier has spoken to the victims.
“The great response after the fact doesn’t make up for the poor response in the beginning,” Lanier said. “For four or five officers to be aware of a crime and not take police action, that’s a very serious allegation.”
An internal investigation of the officer’s actions is under way, Lanier said, and police have good leads in the alleged hate crime itself.
This incident follows two recent crimes against transgender women – one in which the victim was killed and another in which she was shot at. Police don’t believe the incidents are related.
