Georgia Woman Says Cop Beating Led to Miscarriage
[su_right_ad]Kenya Harris went to the Albany, GA police station to pick up her minor son who’d been arrested. After waiting five hours, she said she had to get home to take care of her other children. Officer Ryank Jenkins said he didn’t like her “tone.”
“Defendant Officer Jenkins stated that he did not appreciate the tone in which she was communicating with him, and further stated that if she continued he would take her head and ‘put it to the floor,'” the lawsuit stated.
The mother once again insisted that she needed to leave, and that’s when Jenkins decided to use force.
“Defendant Officer Jenkins, without provocation, grabbed plaintiff, who weighs less than one hundred twenty (120) pounds, by her neck and slammed her to the ground,” the lawsuit said. “Plaintiff momentarily blacked out and came to with defendant Officer Jenkins sitting on her back, and with his knee on her arm. Plaintiff was pregnant at the time.”
“Defendant Officer Jenkins put handcuffs on plaintiff and slammed her against the wall. Plaintiff was placed into an interrogation room after she was beaten and handcuffed.”
Harris asked for medical attention, but officers denied the request. Instead, she was charged with obstruction, and spent one night in the Dougherty County Jail.
