The news is out: [When Quentin Suttles, a 30-year-old Black man, was arrested on May 10, a bystander filmed an officer punching him in the head several times.
This week, an officer’s body camera video, which shows the police interaction with him in full, was released.
An attorney for Suttles filed notice of the claim in the state’s Supreme Court. It says that Buffalo Police Officers Ronald Ammerman and Michael Scheu used excessive force when they pulled him over and arrested him.
The claim also accuses the city, the police department, and Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood of not properly training officers in use of force and not providing adequate supervision of their actions, according to WKBW.
The claim by Suttles’ attorney Joshua Ramos, though, accuses the officers of “prolonged grabbing of his genitals while finding no contraband.”
Suttles suffered a fractured shoulder blade and orbital bone as a result of the incident, according to legal papers viewed by Buffalo News.
Despite the injuries, police didn’t seek medical treatment for Suttles the next day, Ramos said in the claim viewed by Buffalo News.]
Police reform will not be legit until and unless qualified immunity, no-knock warrant, chokehold, police unions are outlawed and a national database for law enforcement prevents the rehire of cops who are caught. Please remember that a good cop is one who hasn’t been caught yet.
