This nauseating November 2008 surveillance video should be A BIG FUCKING STORY. It shows a Seattle sheriff’s deputy, Paul Schene, beating down a 15-year-old Black girl like she’s a 300-pound animal hopped up on PCP. Apparently that’s what you get when you allegedly steal a car and kick your shoe off in the direction of the cop stuffing you into an interview room.
For his unabashed savagery, this King County cop is currently standing trial for fourth-degree assault. Of course he’s pleaded innocent. Just like he did when he was exonerated for shooting two people “in the line of duty” in 2002 and 2006. One of those people died, by the way.
This has got to be addressed. It has to. It just has to. More details/links/whatever on how coming soon.
PS: Post-race my ass.
