Handcuffed white female nearly beaten to death by BART officer. No media firestorm
A handcuffed white female was nearly killed when a Bay Area Rapid Transit office slammed her face into the concrete. She was drunk on St. Patrick’s Day in 2014. Police station photos show that the officer towered over the small, skinny woman.
She suffered four facial fractures, broken teeth, and was knocked unconscious. Her face was literally pulverized. Photos shows a large amount of blood all over the police station floor.
The victim of the beating works as a model and a bartender.
The case is only in the news now, because the victim filed a lawsuit against BART and the Oakland Police Department. It was picked up from a local media outlet by the UK Mail Online and the website of the New York Daily News.
If the woman had been black, this would have been the biggest news story in America for two months! Instead, it was a blip in the local news.
