The Urban Politico: Police Brutality: Jasper Texas

The Urban Politico: Police Brutality: Jasper Texas

Boy I tell ya.. Look how comfortable they are right in front of the cameras, as if they know they will erase footage if they please, or could just not give two nickels.  Also look at the way they strut casually like this is an everyday occurence. Don't matter the crime, this must stop. Please Share.




The incident took place May 5, when Keyarika “Shea” Diggles, 25, was brought to jail to pay the fine, according to her lawyer, Cade Bernsen. Diggles, according to Bersen, was on the phone speaking with her mother to arrange the payment when Officer Ricky Grissom ended the call. The video recording has no audio, but it appears that Grissom and Diggles began arguing after he discontinued the call.

Officer Ryan Cunningham soon comes in behind Diggles and tries to handcuff her. She showed no sign of resistance but Cunningham violently grabbed Diggles by the hair and slams her head into a counter. The officers then slam Diggles to the ground. One of the officers tried to drag her to the jail cell but ends up pulling off her shoe. Both officers eventually pull her into the cell. Diggles was charged with resisting arrest; the charge was eventually dropped Monday. Both officers have been fired.
