I came across this in the news:


Quote:
A Hillsborough County deputy and three of her supervisors were suspended after the release of a videotape showing her dumping a man out of a wheelchair in Orient Road Jail.

Quote:
Detention Deputy Charlette Marshall-Jones, 44, has worked in the county's jail system for 22 years.

Chief Deputy Jose Docobo said he was disgusted and appalled after viewing a surveillance tape recorded Jan. 29 at Orient Road Jail. The tape shows Jones lifting the back of a wheelchair, causing a man to fall to the floor. She then checks the man's pockets before he is lifted back into the chair.
Deputies arrested Brian Sterner, 32, on a warrant from Tampa police at his home in Riverview, sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said. He posted bail and was freed Feb. 3.

After watching the tape, Docobo told Orient Road Jail's administrator, Maj. Robert Lucas, to immediately suspend Jones without pay, he said.

"The actions are indefensible at every level," Docobo said. "Based on what I saw, anything short of dismissal would be inappropriate."

While it's true, steps have been, and are being taken regarding the "incident", those of the Tampa area, and in fact every district in the USA shold be concerned regarding brutal and sub-human steps some "correction officers" use, to "enforce" the law.

If in any way, you can suggest here to the broader population, or outside of this conline community come up and implement ideas how to eradicate such unfourtanate incidents from happening in the future, please... either post - or take action.

I suggest if you are from the Hilsborough area:

1) Keep up pressure through writing and speeches. Perhaps a national movement against police brutality can yet be produced.

2) Seek lawful Justice on behalf of the victim.
