Racism Strikes Again In Jasper, Texas: Two Police Officers Fired After Videotaped Mistreatment and Abuse of Black Female In Custody Goes Viral [TW: Racism, Ethnocentrism, Police Brutality, Police Negligence, Abuse, Physical Assault, Mistreatment]
The racially-charged tensions in the town of Jasper, Texas, became a little more strained recently after two white police officers were fired for mistreating a black woman while she was in custody.
The incident occurred May 5 at the Jasper police headquarters and was caught on surveillance video. The video shows Keyarika “Shea” Diggles, who was brought in because of a fine she owed the police department, having a verbal altercation with a police officer. Then, another police officer appears and the two shove Diggles’ head into the counter and pull her by her hair to the floor. Diggles is then dragged by the ankles into a holding cell.
“The amount of force used was abominable,” said Cade Bernsen, Diggles’ attorney, to Yahoo News.
Allegedly, the altercation began when Diggles was attempting to call her mother for the $100 she owed; that’s when, reportedly, Officer Ricky Grissom cut off the call and cornered her. The video does not include audio, so it is unclear what was said.
Once Diggles was cornered, the second officer, Ryan Cunningham, came at her from behind and attempted to cuff her as they both slammed her head into the countertop.
“She got her hair pulled out, broke a tooth, braces got knocked off … it was brutal,” Bernsen said.
Diggles was then charged with resisting arrest, but those charges were dropped on Monday.
The police brutality in this case strikes close to home as the town remembers (to the week of this incident) the horrific death of James Byrd Jr.
Byrd, a black man, was killed as part of an infamous, racially-charged hate crime in Jasper when three white men tied a rope around his neck and dragged him behind their pickup until he was decapitated.
“The more things change, the more they remain the same,” Jasper City Council Member Alton Scott said of the Jasper’s racial issues.
The rural Georgia town of Rochelle…you’ve heard of this place if you pay attention to news; last weekend the national media was reporting on the local high school’s first interracial prom … ever.
The city’s sewer system routinely dumps raw sewage into the streets and yards of the black community but not the white community. The mayor used his car to block the investigating attorneys’ car when they drove into a black neighborhood, and then screamed and threatened them with arrest. The chief of police pulled up with his lights flashing and told the duo to call him before coming back to Rochelle.
Sixty years ago bathroom signs said, “White Only” or “Negro Only”. Today, so many decades later, those printed signs are gone, but other signs of discrimination persist…like…
the shit from those bathrooms.

Re: Fucking with the wrong one
Dear Storm Troopers:
People in the LA community were not held hostage nor were they threatened by Chris Dorner’s cop murdering rampage. That would be a fantasy advanced by LAPD administration. The conflict was a cage match where the people were comfortably safe watching either a nut or someone who has had an epiphany, attack a brutal, racist group of thugs who have terrorized LA for half a century. I can’t understand why local media didn’t cover it like they did the Iraq war, with the LAPD being Saddam Hussein.
Perhaps, you could explain to me why throughout the difficulty, the only citizens harmed were harmed by the LAPD? Intend to blame Christopher Dorner for LAPD officers shooting two unarmed women delivering papers? The LAPD was and is dangerous to the people of LA. The LAPD is an incompetent, corrupt, racist and violent group of thugs. There will be no outpouring of sympathy from people in a police battered LA community for the LAPD. Realize, that if one’s law enforcement has no rapport whatsoever with a community that fears them, they will cease to be able to do their job.
Christopher Dorner’s rampage was not a threat to the people of LA; mainly because during his rampage he was no longer with the brutal LAPD.
Corrupt police departments, like LAPD murder many more people than you will ever know.
White Plains police reportedly used a racial slur, burst through Chamberlain’s door, tasered him, then shot him dead.
The alleged shooter, Officer Anthony Carelli, is due in court later this month in an unrelated 2008 police brutality case. Carelli is accused of being the most brutal of a group of officers who allegedly beat two arrestees of Jordanian descent and called them “rag heads.
Despite repeated requests from Chamberlain’s family for the name of the officer who killed him, White Plains Public Safety Commissioner David Chong only named Carelli as the shooter this morning, after his name appeared in an article written by Democracy Now!’s Juan Gonzalez in the New York Daily News. The White Plains police have refused to say whether Carelli has been disciplined or assigned to desk duty after the fatal shooting of Chamberlain.
White Plains Police and Mayor are Criminals and Deserve the Same as Kenneth Chamberlin.
Now listen to a Ugandan talk about this Kony 2012 stuff…
Michelle Bachmann is still full of shit.
