Video released of King County sheriff beating a 15 year old detainee

Via Injustice In Seattle:

"King County Sheriff's Deputy Paul Schene plead not guilty to fourth degree assault over what took place in the video shown above. If convicted he only faces a maximum of one year in jail.

The video was taken on November 29th in a SeaTac, Washington holding cell, south of Seattle, Washington. The video shows deputy Schene, another deputy, and a 15-year-old girl he arrested on suspicion of auto theft for driving her parents' car."

Thanks for spreading the word about this one. No, it's not rare that it happens, it's just rare that the video of it got out.

BTW, seems like the local paper here pieced together some other videos that show what happened before and after she was in the holding cell...

of course, there was nothing there that justified that attack.

Thanks again!
