A 27-year-old Los Angeles pharmacist has sued the Los Angeles Police Department over injuries she sustained when she was thrown from a moving squad car. The New York Daily News reported that Kim Nguyen says she fell from the car as she struggled to escape sexual assault by a police officer.
“He was grabbing my left inner thigh, trying to — I’m assuming — opening my legs,” she said in her deposition about the incident.
Horrifying surveillance video shows a half-naked Nguyen tumbling from the police car into the street. She was badly injured and only regained consciousness when she emerged from a six-day medically induced coma.
Her injuries included a badly broken jaw, a brain concussion and soft tissue injuries all over her body.
The nightmare began when she and two male friends were waiting for a cab at 2:00 a.m. outside a restaurant in Los Angeles. The trio, Nguyen said, had been drinking.
A squad car pulled up to the curb and officers handcuffed her and bundled her into the back seat, saying she was being arrested for public intoxication. The car pulled away from the curb without either of Nguyen’s companions.
According to Nguyen’s deposition, one officer remained in the back seat of the squad car. He fondled her chest and yanked her head around by the ears before pulling up her skirt and trying to force her legs open.
It was then, she said, that the door behind her abruptly swung open and she was thrown from the vehicle.
Her attorney Arnoldo Cassillas said to KCAL that his client spent two weeks in the hospital with her jaw wired shut. All of her teeth were shattered in the fall and had to be pulled. She is suing for criminal negligence.

Just another isolated incident. Good thing all those “good cops” were there to prevent this.

Last night my new professor made some comment about a show or movie made in the ’80s when “cops around here (L.A.) were really bad.”
I was like, “excuse me, were?”
Yeah, I was debating one whether or not I liked this professor. I think I’m a firm DISLIKE until proven not an asshole…


Fuck these cops. I hate hearing about women of color being assaulted, this shit is triggering.

A piece of paper isn’t going to save my life when he finally gets me, but at least you will know who killed me.

Amy Rene Hargrove in a 2012 King County petition for a protection order against her violent ex-boyfriend. He strangled her to death in her mother’s house on Monday. She was 28 years old and leaves behind four children.

Prior to murdering her, this man, who isn’t named because he hasn’t been arrested yet(!), had beaten Amy, fractured her eye socket, raped her at gunpoint, emptied her bank account, injured her cats, led the police on a high speed car chase with her children inside the car, and, of course, violated his restraining order numerous times.

I hope he burns in hell alongside everyone who could have helped her, but didn’t.
