Former MPD police officer Kisha Coley was sentenced to 6 days in jail after pleading guilty to two counts of assault. In March, Coley got into an argument while making an arrest with a man she was arresting and struck him with her baton.Six days? You're shitting me. Crank that dial the other way hard.
Another report about Coley:
Washington Post: The Crime Scene | Mary Pat Flaherty | Ex-D.C. officer jailed for excessive forceSix days spread out over two weekends?
Coley, 36, will spend this weekend and next in jail after pleading guilty to two counts of assault ...
... after hitting a man with her baton during an early morning arrest in which she ordered the man to move away from the entry to a laundromat in the 3500 block of Georgia Avenue NW. The man moved on but came back to argue with Coley and threatened to report her to a supervisor, according to documents filed with her plea.How DARE he threaten to make her face responsibility for her actions.
The officer hit the man on the head and later, on his hands, after a second officer had the suspect detained against the back of a police cruiser, court records show.Not just thuggery, but cowardly thuggery.
