An escalating complaint of police violence can lead to a lawsuit, the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit, filed by San Francisco lawyer Jose Rodriguez, names Officer Christopher L. Farragut, the sergeant who beat Rodney McPherson, as a defendant.
Rodriguez claims he was fired from the San Francisco Police Department after the alleged incident.
The complaint alleges that the sergeant, who has since retired, is still employed by the department, and that the police department has retaliated against him by firing him.
He also claims that Farrigut is currently on unpaid leave.
Farrow’s attorneys also claim that the incident happened in the early hours of January 20, 2018, and the sergeant has a history of using excessive force against officers.
FARRIGUT WAS FIRED BY THE SAN FRANCISCO POLICE FOR PUNISHING A POLICE OFFICER FOR BENDING HIS LEFT HAND AND HANDING HIS LOWER RIGHT HAND INTO A MAN’S BACK The lawsuit claims that in a December 5, 2018 incident, Farriggut punched Rodney McNeill in the face, causing a cut.
The suit claims that after the incident, a San Francisco police sergeant, Sgt. David Waddell, fired Farrigiut after the sergeant allegedly told the sergeant that McNeill “should be able to take care of himself.”
In addition, the suit claims Farrrigts use of force against McNeill was a violation of his rights.
According to the complaint, FARRIGHUT WAS ALSO FIRED FROM THE SAN JOSE POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR A VIOLATION OF HIS RIGHTS FOR STANDING HIS RIGHT HANDS IN THE FLEEING OF AN ONGOING POLICE TRAFFIC VEHICLE.
In an interview with NBC Bay Area on Monday, Rodriguez said that FARRAGUT’S firing is the result of a lawsuit filed against the San Jose Police Department by the group We Are Defenders, which is also involved in the civil rights lawsuit against the city.
FARRAGUT IS ALSO ON SLEEPING LIST OF TASK FORCE RESEARCHERS, WHICH CONFIRMS HE IS A TASER TASKER Source TechRadars article Taser Tasers have been a hot topic of discussion on social media recently.
According in the complaint filed against Farragher by Rodriguez, FARAGGUT’s taser was activated on January 27, 2018.
FARSAR GOLDSFELD, the city attorney, said in a statement on Monday that the city will defend FARRaghts rights in the lawsuit.
“We do not and will not tolerate retaliation against any employee, whether in law enforcement, civil rights or any other capacity, that is retaliated upon for exercising their constitutionally protected rights,” said GOLDFELD.
“The police department is a public trust agency with a responsibility to maintain public safety, and we will defend all our employees against any retaliation for exercising those rights.”
A spokeswoman for the city of San Francisco said that, in response to the allegations, it is reviewing the complaint.
