    Video showing cop forcibly cutting woman's hair weave makes waves

    http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2014...kes-waves?lite
    Disturbing new video showing a Michigan police officer hacking off the hair weave of a young woman arrested in November is stirring controversy on social media.
    In the video, Charda Gregory, 23, of Detroit is tied in a restraining chair by four officers in Warren, Mich., before a female officer rips and cuts at her long braids. Gregory appears to protest and react physically, but the officer doesn’t stop until the entire weave is removed from her head.
    Gregory was arrested for allegedly damaging a motel room and police car in suburban Detroit, but charges against her were dropped, according to NBC affiliate WDIV.
    Police Officer Bernadette Najor, who administered the violent haircut, said she did so because weaves pose a suicide risk, WDIV reported. Najor was suspended and later fired.
    At the time, Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green said Najor clearly violated policy.
    “There’s a real simple thing: it’s called right and wrong. And to me this is something that I won’t tolerate, I don’t think the citizens of Warren will tolerate it,”he said. "We are always in the process of reviewing things that happen and trying to make ourselves better and more responsible to the people we work for."
    Finally a Police Commissioner has came out and called a stop to this BS that has been running rampantly across the USA with rogue cops. Support your local police as they deal with people many wouldn't want to but they must be better than the criminal they are arresting.

    The third in a series that have been discussed at some length on this forum, with more to come without a doubt.

    There is a local story about a lawyer who was accused of a white collar crime involving the renting of abandoned homes.

    Did the cops come and lead him away from his law office? Nope. Did they issue a warrant and give him a chance to turn himself in, since he had never been in any trouble before and was not accused of any violent offense? No again. Instead, they staged a SWAT team style raid on his home in the middle of the night and held his teenage son at gunpoint while he was being arrested.

    More to come on this one.

    Wow looks like she cut some of her real hair off too. I bet she called her a name like fat, and she went straight for the scissors.

    So, what's wrong with this?

    It's not unreasonable to expect someone to remove their fake hair, or have it removed, when you go to jail.

    It was assault. She should face charges as well.

    How is removing a prisoner's weave "brutality"? Obviously, the prisoner wasn't injured. She was restrained in am approved restraint. She wasn't assaulted. Obviously, some people will bitch about anything the cops do.

    Here's a little bit of reality for you: It's prison. If you don't like the way you get treated in prison, don't break the law and get sent to prison.

    Re: Video showing cop forcibly cutting woman's hair weave makes waves

    I'm kind of torn on this one.


    On one hand, yeah that is pretty "invasive" and rough treatment, especially given that she is merely accused and not yet convicted of anything.


    OTOH, yes enough weave could be used to make a garrote with which to attack other inmates or guards, or a noose to hang oneself with. I can see where it might have been classified as something risky to allow the inmate to retain possession of... and in most cases, EVERYTHING is taken from an inmate prior to incarceration.

    I don't remember weave being an issue in my LE days, but that was long enough ago that weave wasn't so commonplace.
