Deputy sexually assaults woman on live tv

A Multnomah County Corrections officer committed a blatant act of sexual assault on a female prisoner while the filming of National Geographic's tv show, "Lockdown" was being filmed.

As can be visibly seen from this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8k_BR_KDe0&feature=relmfu at 1:25 to 1:34, the woman, visibly shaken, crying and in tears, is pleading with them, "Don't touch me," suggesting something happened to her already at their hands. At about 1:26, you can clearly see the male officer to the left grope the female victim on her breasts, both breasts!

In the wake of the TSA sexual assaults on passengers trying to board airplanes, this abuse of authority needs to cease and to come to an end. Please sign this petition to push the Multnomah County Sheriff's Department to fire the male CO for blatant and gross abuse of power and authority by abusing the female victim/ prisoner in this case.

Power starts with the people using their voice and we need to let out voices be heard so that the officer will be brought to justice and finally held accountable for his actions and to ensure that no future prisoners are violated in his hands.

    1. Letter From Lt. Matsushima: "This Was Not Sexual Assault"

      Raven  Williams
      Petition Organizer

      Late last night I had just received a letter from the Multnomah County Sheriff's Department Internal Affairs Inspector of the Internal Affairs Unit with regards to the case. This is what he had to say:

      "After a careful review of the information that we obtained, we determined that your allegations are unsubstantiated. Unfortunately the youtube video clip only shows a very small piece of the event, and when viewed without benefit of the context can be misleading."

      Tenuous piece or not, it conspicuously shows a young lady being sexually assaulted by the male corrections officer and her obviously being in distressed because of "inappropriate" touching ie sexual assault that goes well beyond how officers are supposed to pat down suspects/ prisoners. As a former security officer for a major port, I know from my previous training that it was inappropriate what was done to the lady at the least and criminal in all honesty.

      Please help me get more signatures so that justice will be served.

      Because there is no excuse for this. And it wasn't just the deputy - the woman guard clearly gropes the prisoner's vagina (and also smirks like the man did). American guards and cops are bloody perverts.

      If a female prisoner needs to be searched in any way it should be done by a female police/prison officer. The guy in the video is clearly enjoying groping this frightened woman.

      This is in no way, context, or form right. I don't care if this woman's in prison, this cannot be tolerated.
