This video exposes yet another horrific police crime. Making us question how we can trust those who are supposed to be protecting us.
In this video BART police officers slam Megan Sheehan 28, to the ground in Santa Rita Jail, Dublin, breaking her teeth and bones in her face, leaving her unconscious in a pool of her own blood. Sheehan filed a federal law suit against the BART Police Department, explaining that they used excessive force when detaining her on a drunken night out on St. Patrick’s Day in 2014. She also claims that one of the officers held her hand back as she fell.
In the court papers attorneys for BART denied any wrongdoing and said that Megan had tried to punch one of the officers and referred to the officers notes where he wrote he’d used an ‘arm bar takedown’ and ‘guided her to the ground’ but this report does no match the video footage… Have a look for yourself.
