Female teen attacked in holding cell.
A kick, slammed into a wall, dragged to the ground by her hair and punched in the back or back of the head a couple times, is what you’ll see in this video and no, it’s not Mixed Martial Arts. It’s a male officer and a male co-worker (that seems uncomfortable with what takes place, but does nothing to stop it), delivering a beating to a young female that they have in some type of holding cell. There hasn’t been much information on this, although CNN highlighted the video earlier today. The video says enough, although there are people somewhere defending what these officers or guards did to this young girl. Wishful outcomes are no suspension with pay, no pension, no more job and no leniency in their jail sentences because they work in law enforcement. As a matter of fact, they should be treated more severely because they work in law enforcement. Truly a shameful display and one can only imagine how the parents of this girl are feeling after seeing this video.

SEATTLE (AP) — A King County sheriff’s deputy kicks a 15-year-old girl, slams her to the floor of a jail cell, strikes her and pulls her hair in violence captured on videotape.
Prosecutors released the surveillance video Friday in the assault case against Deputy Paul Schene, who is accused of using excessive force on the girl. Schene, 31, pleaded not guilty to fourth-degree assault in Superior Court on Thursday.
Schene was investigated previously for shooting two people — killing one — in the line of duty in 2002 and 2006. Both times his actions were found to be justified, said Ian Goodhew, prosecutor’s deputy chief of staff.
Here is what seems to be the full video. Showing what takes place from the outside of the cell. I especially love the part where Sgt. Jim Laing says he has no comment, when clearly he should have many comments and actions as well.
More info on Paul Schene:
In June 2006, Schene fatally shot a suspect, Pedro Yo, who attacked him during a traffic stop. Yo had run back to his car and disobeyed Schene’s orders to stop. Schene said he saw Yo reach for something in the seat, so he fired 11 times after he ran back to his car. An inquest jury found Schene’s shooting was justified. – Mike Barber seatttlepi.com
