Officer fired after witness video shows his knee on woman's neck, taser in stomach

June 30, 2020 / 618 views

This video shows a former officer taking a knee on a woman's neck and tasering her in the stomach area. She is already down on the ground, on her back, and there's another full grown man cop present. There might be a third as well. Anyway, they jack the lady out of the car and the one cop does most of the damage. Turns out she was pregnant and lost her baby shortly after this.

Big news is covering the story since the video was released and the officer fired.

"A recently fired Miami Gardens police officer who was shown in a graphic video from January holding his knee to a pregnant Black woman’s neck while tasing her multiple times in the stomach has been arrested and charged with battery and official misconduct, the Miami-Dade State Attorney announced Thursday."

"The arrest of Safiya Satchell might have gone down as another anonymous case — were it not for the bystander video that showed a Miami Gardens police officer reach into her SUV, drag her out, press his knee on her neck and stun her twice with a Taser.

This video, as have similar clips of police brutality across the country, is jarring and on Thursday spurred state authorities to arrest now-fired Officer Jordy Yanes Martel on charges of battery.

He was also charged with official misconduct for filing two reports containing false details about his interaction outside a strip club with Satchell, 33, on Jan. 14. He had arrested her on charges of battery on a cop and resisting with violence — charges that have since been dismissed." (Miami Herald)
