Cops Strap African American Woman To Chair, Pepper Spray Her and Cut Off Her Hair

It’s the kind of story that you wouldn’t believe unless you saw it with your own eyes. Thankfully, this story was caught on surveillance video, so we can do just that.

Charda Gregory, 22, had allegedly trashed a hotel room. She was taken into custody by Michigan police, then pepper sprayed in jail, slammed against a wall and strapped down to a chair.

It was then that officer Bernadette Najor took out a pair of scissors and started hacking away at Gregory’s hair.

The officer tried to justify her actions in the police report, saying that the hair was a “suicide risk.” Thankfully, this resulted in charges against Gregory being dropped, and Najor being fired. But had this not been caught on video, who knows what would have happened.

Other officers involved are now under investigation.

Watch the video below and SPREAD THE WORD! These sorts of abusive cops can only get away with as much as we allow them to.

    Really? Fired? Police don’t have extra rights right? I mean what if a citizen did this to another citizen and police responded?! What do you think would have transpired as far as charges?

    FIRED?! Not arrested?!!?!? FIRED?! *facepalm*

      Wrong! The police do have extra rights.

    The woman had just 2 drinks at a party and woke up in a trashed hotel room with no idea how she got there. She called police for help, explaining she must have been slipped a drug. This is relevant to the story. This is the way a probable victim of rape was treated when she called the police for help.
