Police State: Seattle Cop Beats 15 year old Girl For being “Mouthy”

This is outrageous this jerk belongs in jail…. :mad:

The Video:

The Story Via SeattlePI.com:

A video showing a King County Sheriff’s deputy pummeling a 15-year-old girl in a holding cell was released Friday over the strenuous objections of the officer’s attorney.

The case goes beyond police misconduct, County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg said in a prepared statement.

“It’s about criminal misconduct. And that’s why he needs to be prosecuted,” he said.

The video of the Nov. 29 incident was disclosed Friday, one day after Deputy Paul Schene, 31, pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault in King County District Court.

Schene, an eight-year veteran, works out of Precinct 4, which covers SeaTac, Burien and high crime areas in White Center and Skyway.

He is the third sheriff’s deputy since 2006 to face charges on allegations of excessive force. All three are from the Burien precinct.

A detective assigned to the girl’s case discovered the video Dec. 1 and immediately forwarded it to supervisors.

The Seattle P-I requested a copy of the holding cell video and all reports from the incident under the state’s open records law. A judge on Thursday denied a request from Schene’s attorney to bar the video from public disclosure.

“We take this very seriously and we’re very concerned about this,” sheriff’s Sgt. Jim Laing said Friday. An internal investigation would begin after the criminal case is finished.

Lew Rockwell Weighs in here:

Several years ago, Schene shot and killed an unarmed, mentally disturbed man following a traffic stop that degenerated into a “knock-down, drag-out” fight. The shooting was ruled “justifiable.” Shortly after that incident, he was stopped for driving under the influence (apparently of prescription medication). He was given a deferred sentence and placed on probation, so that he could continue to bless the people of King County with his singular professionalism.

Let’s hope this dirty cop gets what is coming to him. Jail time and and removal from the police force, permanently. :mad:

  1. Outrageous. These men are supposed to be the good guys. This officers’ goodness really shines through when he comes back into the cell to look for blood. I am a former cop, and say this man shames his position, his department, and the entirety of the law enforcement profession. To be gentle and restrained requires the most strength.

  2. There needs to be a web site for these types of officers that gives a booking type photo and lists their offence, so once fired they can not just go into the next state and start all over and not be known.

  3. You know punishing an out of control police officer after he has egregiously assaulted a 15 year old girl is too little too late. We must stop the assault from happening to begin with. The way to do that is to make the sheriff or police chief totally responsible for what his officers do while on duty. It’s his job to make sure only those who have the professional ability and psychological stability to do the job are actually carrying out their duties. All others must be weeded out and removed before they can cause this kind of harm. Therefore if the cheif knew his job was on the line every time one of his officers broke the rules then it wouldn’t happen. Believe me, it wouldn’t happen. Get it?
