Caught on tape: Beating at the Cherokee County Jail


www.fox23.com

The two video clips show the booking and beating of Daniel Bosh at the Cherokee County Detention Center on May 17, 2011. Bosh was being booked into the jail for failing to pay court fees from a previous incident.
Court documents related to the lawsuit say Bosh was standing in front of the booking desk at the jail when he told the guard his handcuffs were too tight. When he complained again, things got ugly.

The man was handcuffed and in for failure to pay a traffic ticket. This is the treatment he was given when he asked for his handcuffs to be loosened. I lived in Cherokee County for many years and have actually been to the jail on a dui and was maced while handcuffed and slammed against the wall then threatened to be put into a cell with a large native american man. All I had asked is to see the results of my breathalizer test

That so many scumbags feel comfortable across the world doing this speaks volumes about how little time we have left before it finally is....

Everywhere.

It seems the officers responsible for the attack are still on duty also. Not even a suspension for further evaluation.

Read the whole article. Even if he was doing the things that they say, slamming him so hard that his vertebrae shatters is too much force for cussing and grabbing a shirt.

Lots of pigs have the same MO as a serial killer. You didn't really do anything; you're just kinda there.

From the video posted, there was absolutely no justification for the actions of these LEO's.

I often try to find reason behind a law enforcement officers actions, but I see no reason they needed to treat this person the way they did.

This entire department needs to be investigated. There has obviously been a training failure here, the force used on this man was not justified.

Bosch "Kept resisting, even while officers kept trying to restrain him, he even grabbed an officers shirt" ???

Now explain THAT one to me.

How does a guy with his hands cuffed BEHIND HIS BACK grab the shirt of anyone.

What "other side"? The dude was handcuffed. There are only one of two things he could have been doing: cussing at the officers, or spitting in their faces. That doesn't justify their actions at all, especially that first coward who slammed his head and then threw him on the ground like this is the WWE or something.

That guy should be immediately fired and charged in court for assault. Hopefully he'd get shanked in jail as payback. Or better yet maybe another psychotic, violent law enforcement officer working at the jail will assault him and shatter his vertabrae.

Bosh says he was not allowed to see a doctor until two days after the incident. That's when doctors say one of Bosh's vertebrae had shattered. Four days later, Bosh had major surgery to repair the damage.

In an interview Wednesday, Bosh told FOX23 News that his life will never be the same because of what happened to him at the detention center.

"The pain will never go away," Bosh said. "You know, unless I'm in a coma, the pain will always be there no matter what type of medication they give me."
And of course justice has not yet been served:

For now, both Chronister and Girdner are still working their same jobs at the Cherokee County Detention Center.

Gee, a fractured spine for swearing at an officer. IF he even did. That's sure appropriate.
These officers are supposed to be mature and responsible; so what if the guy was standing there swearing at them, half the people they bring in will.
Bunch of control freaks imo.

Wow. And they called America 'The Land of The Free'.

Sure goes well doesn't it. The police in the US are so much more violent than the officers we have in England. In the UK i'm pretty sure they would have just thrown him in a cell and left him to paddy.

Human rights are about to implode.

Did I question anything that occured?

All I asked is why the op left out that info.

Well the claim is he attempted to spit at the Officer. There will be no way to prove it or disprove it, but something else stood out to me that discredits the Officers claims.

At the end of the report you hear the Newcaster say that "he continued resisting, making threats and grabbing the shirts of Officers"

Now how do you grab the shirts of Officers when your hands are cuffed behind your back?

Answer is.. you can't. That is physically impossible. So if this part is untrue, it will cast doubt on everything else the Officer's claim.

I wouldn't like to be spit on either and if he did indeed spit on the guard then fine. The problem is there is no evidence of this man attempting to spit on anyone. All we see is the man turning towards the guard then the guard slams his head on the counter. No evidence of the guards side of the story means the guard needs to be terminated. You can't just say "oh we'll take his side of it because he works there".

It's obvious even from the reporting the cops made up stories to stick to after the fact IMO. I don't think that the odds favor this as some wild eyed idea, sadly. The level of corruption is remarkable, and shows an "Us" vs. "Them" mentality much like the military. They've done a great job militarizing our police.

That's outrageous!
Slamming someone head first into a hard surface and then the floor, with their hands handcuffed behind their back, could have resulted in severe head injuries. Seeing all the other officers then come rushing up and piling in just makes it all the worse. I mean, lets face it, he didn't seem much of a threat, even if he was mouthing off a bit as alleged.

Looks like another case of unwarranted brutality, plain and simple. There is just no justification for such action.

I've only spent a night in jail over something dumb, but even in those few hours I seen people kicked and spit on by the guards. One guy called a guard something so he opened the cell, picked him up with 4 other guards and rammed him head first into the wall. But who are they going to believe? You or the guard? We sat in the same room (holding cell) for about 12 hours with about 20 other people before being let out to use the phones and nobody would push the button on the wall to talk to anyone because they would come and take people away and they would never come back. They threw lunch bags on the floor like we were dogs. Tell me this is what it means to be innocent until proven guilty?

Well, that's excessive force no matter how you spin it.

And it's obvious that the "grabbing shirts" part is an outright lie. The guard who claimed that should have thought a bit before making that excuse up.

I'm getting a feeling the main cause of this was something like steroid abuse...

Well, this guy apparently accepted a settlement for $350,000...



If that video has set a precedent, I think he'll win.

I don't understand how he can grab anyone's shirt while his hands were cuffed behind his back? Obviously if this was not caught on tape, the outcome would be different, there would be no investigation, the victim would have been charged for assaulting police officer and resisting arrest..

This is typical, US police have a habit of physically assaulting Americans, and then add salt to the injury by charging the victims with more crimes.

It is almost always video footage which drops the charges laid against the victim, without those video footages, the victims will be punished even more. In one case a similar incident occurred when a US policeman threw a young woman head first to the ground, breaking her front teeth and then add salt to the injury by charging her with assaulting a police officer. Luckily a street camera caught the whole incident and the charges were dropped, but the police officer wasn't charged with anything, but don't remember whether the police officer was suspended or kicked out of the force or not.

I'll try to refresh my memory in that case.
