Yes, she was drunk. Yes she was uncooperative. Yes, she tried to leave the room.
Only one of the above is unlawful and she was already in custody when the beating occurred. Basically a male police officer tried to keep this woman from leaving the intake room, she wanted to make a phone call.
The end result got her nose broken, severe swelling of the lip and eyes that were as black and blue as they get. It's all caught on film...........EXCEPT for the beating. The officer blocked the camera with his coat or something and from what we can tell, beat the living **** out of her.
No sound or video is available during the beating and when the sound and video come back, the end result is right before your eyes. Blood all over the floor. The woman lying down apparently dazed and moving real slow. Next, she's getting wheeled off to the hospital.
The officer got fired but is appealing the decision, why? I don't know. No criminal deserves this kind of treatment just for being uncooperative. Not one, let alone a woman. IMO, the cop should rot in jail for a couple of years in the Federal "pound me in the ass" prison. He should NEVER be allowed to represent the police force again.
I know we don't have all of the facts, but come the F*(K on. Common sense tells you what happened. I'm quite sure a judge with all of the facts and the full recording would agree.

The officer said "she fell". I'm smellin' a pretty strong whiff over here....
