Cop at police station caught on film refusing to file pregnant woman’s assault report against a fellow officer
A pregnant woman was allegedly assaulted by a police officer. But when she went to file assault charges against him, the police officer at the station refused to take to her report, and got the entire confrontation on video.
A pregnant Michigan woman is demanding justice after she walked into a police station to report that she was hit in the face by an officer – and was all but ignored by the supervisor on duty.
Andrea Dingess, who says he is six months pregnant, posted a video on Facebook of the shocking indifference shown by the supervisor at the Lincoln Park, Michigan, Police Department when she demanded to press charges against the officer.
… At one point, the supervisor sarcastically asks: ‘What do you want me to do, go out there and arrest him?’
Ms Dingess responds: ‘Yeah! That’s what you do to normal people when they assault people.’
Despite repeatedly asking to file a formal complaint, the officer at the desk dismisses her and refuses to take a report.
While there is no way of knowing whether or not Dingess’ story is true, there is no excuse for this officer’s behavior. This is an extremely serious claim, one that needs to be investigated, and if it’s true, the officer who assaulted this woman should be fired immediately — as well as the officer who refused to file the police report.
