A police officer has been fired after an incident in which a female prisoner, who was taken into custody on suspicion of DWI, wound up lying on the police station floor in a pool of blood.
Much of what happened was recorded on a videotape, but there is a gap of undetermined length. During that time, the woman was severly injured.
She said she was beaten up, the officer said she fell. It seems more than coincidental that he deliberately walked to the camera and shut it off, just in time for her to become seriously injured before turning the camera back on.
Last November, Angelia Garbirino was arrested for ‘Suspicion of a DWI’ in Shreveport, LA. The officer, Wiley Willis, Asked her to take a breathalyzer test and she declined. Remember the key word here is ‘ASKED’. They are allowed to ask you anything they want, which you do not have to answer because of your 5th Amendment.
So he took her in and he booked her. Upon her arrival, She asked for her one phone call, but her requests for a phone call were denied, at that time. The video shows that she was belligerent and uncooperative, but so are a lot of people. That isn’t really a reason for beating them into a bloody pulp.
So the officer started to get more physical. He then walks over to the camera recording them for accountability and shuts it off. Oh no! Isn’t that there to protect the police?! She could have freaked out and beat him up and we’d never know! Just like we will never know why, when the camera was turned back on, that Angelia was in a puddle of her own blood.
Wiley Willis, the policeman that allegedly beat her, was fired, but no further actions were taken. No charges or anything. His defense? He was just following protocol. The officer claimed that, after the camera was off, She tried running away, and she tripped and fell. She had two black eyes, Cuts all over her head and a gash in her head that required stitches.
