Ferguson Missouri Police Officer Charged and Sued
Some of those who support Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson wonder why the Department of Justice came so quickly to Ferguson, Missouri after Wilson killed Michael Brown, including sending delegates to Michael’s funeral. It’s because of an accumulation of complaints filed with the DOJ that allege and demonstrate a pattern of violations of civil rights, such as the one involving Ferguson police officer Jaris Hayden.
On October 9, 2013, Ferguson police officer Jaris Hayden stopped a pregnant woman for a traffic violation. On November 12, 2014, the tables were turned and Hayden was arrested. He faces four felony charges, including sexual contact with a prisoner and acceding to corruption by a public servant. Hayden is free on a $10,000 bail.
DNA analysis confirmed pubic hair on the inmate from Ferguson police officer Jaris Hayden.
The victim who was pregnant, known by her initials J.W., has filed a suit in federal court seeking compensatory and punitive damages based on allegations that she was made to perform oral sex on, and was raped by Hayden.
The law suit alleges:
“The conduct of City of Ferguson law enforcement in engaging in repeated acts of violence and constitutional violations against the citizenry constitutes a pattern. The City has taken inadequate steps or no steps at all to control the violent acts of its law enforcement personnel.”
