This is hard for me to type so be patient with me.
I am always at the frontlines/ organizing for justice, but now I need your support.

On July 23, 2014 a Portland police officer attacked my mother and injured her. She was trying to communicate with him outside of Maine Medical center. She did not speak the language so he couldn’t understand what she was saying.

Instead of helping her, he grabbed her by the hand and throw her on the floor. He put his knee on her neck until she was having a hard time breathing. My mother kept saying “ I have asthma.” After a couple of minutes he got off her. The nurses than put a sock in her mouth to stop her from screaming.

Yes, they put a sock in her mouth.

He realized that she was injured so he called the hospital staff to assist him. They put her in a room and claimed to have treated bed. My mother made a complaint but that officer was never held accountable. They said that the officer did nothing wrong. This complaint was investigated by the chief who had a bias against my family during the time this occurred which is why this officer was never held accountable. 

How do you put a sock in someone’s mouth to stop them from screaming after you attack them because they don’t speak the same language as you.

She still has injures today to the point where she receives homecare. She has a neck/ shoulder injury. Portland Police police is the worse department in Maine. I need all of you to come together to fight for justice for my mom and every other black person who has been injured/ murdered by Portland police.

Call them and ask for my mother’s case to be reopened and investigated. 874-8579
