Arkansas Officer Accused Of Tasering Woman After She Refused To Expose Her Breasts

policeThe city of Haskell in Arkansas is facing a bizarre and high disturbing allegation from a woman, Ashlea Bennett, who says that she was tasered by officer Brandon Carter after refusing to show him her breasts.

The incident occurred in December 2011. Bennett says that “upon her refusal, Carter drew his City of Haskell-issued electroshock taser weapon from his utility belt, pointed the weapon at plaintiff, and threatened to deploy the same against her if she would not expose her breasts to him.” Carter is accused of chasing her around her workplace. The complaint states that “activated and deployed his electroshock taser weapon in ‘drive stun’ mode numerous times at or directed at the plaintiff.”

Equally disturbing is the allegation that, when she reported the alleged abuse, Bennett’s complaint was ignored by the police department.

Bennett is alleging civil rights violations, assault, failure to train and supervise and negligent supervision for ignoring her previous complaints.

It is a highly damaging combination for a potential jury. The taser allegation is of course bad enough but, when you combine it with a claim of police disinterest, a jury could express outrage in the verdict and damages.

With a population of only 4,255, it is hard to imagine how such an allegation could be overlooked. The town is also likely to face crippling costs from this litigation unless it can show that Bennett is simply lying. The absence of any criminal charge of the officer is particularly telling. Unless Bennett is lying, the officer committed criminal assault and battery as well as abuse of official authority in the encounter.

I have not been able to locate a response from the police chief, but we will continue to follow the story.

  1. A hat tip of mine to you from another mentor of mine Professor Turley.

    He’s old, late 70’s at Ramming Speed, Incredible there’s nothing I’ve seen before like it, everyone knows there’s work that has to be done, as part of his team, we’re on it.

    We are all fully engaged!

    Trust the Force!

    This below is their pre-planned type operation they hope you go for, ignore it completely. Formulate your own plan, don’t share it & implement it. No doubt when others see it there’ll be cover.

    “Come, Ahab’s compliments to ye; come and see if ye can swerve me. Swerve me? ye cannot swerve me, else ye swerve yourselves! man has ye there. Swerve me? The path to my fixed purpose is laid with iron rails, whereon my soul is grooved to run. Over unsounded gorges, through the rifled hearts of mountains, under torrents’ beds, unerringly I rush! Naught’s an obstacle, naught’s an angle to the iron way!”

  4. The worst and breast crimes take place in Arkansas:

    “It was just too much, having to return to court twice on the same day to contest yet another traffic ticket, and Fire Chief Don Payne didn’t hesitate to tell the judge what he thought of the police and their speed traps.

    The response from cops? They shot him. Right there in court.”

    Not that I can imagine any reason being sufficient, but was SOME reason given for the demand to see her breasts…I mean was she hiding a terrorist between them or something?
    He could say he was in hot pursuit of a reported cross dresser who mugged someone outside the building and reportedly ran inside afterwards.
