Two Years After She Was Convicted, Video Proves Woman Was Actually Assaulted By Police

jailfightOn December 19, 2014, 32-year-old Jennifer Merrow was in a car accident. After failing the field sobriety test, police brought her to the Monroe County Jail where she would be attacked by police and subsequently charged and convicted for it.

In court documents, obtained by the Free Thought Project, prosecutors would claim that Merrow “assaulted a Monroe County Jail Deputy, ripping her hair out and spraining the Deputy’s neck.” On November 16, 2015, after the conviction, Senior District Attorney Christine K. Callanan would go so far as to use Merrow’s case to illustrate the dangers police face on the job every day.

“Jennifer Merrow’s behavior on December 19, 2014 demonstrates her complete disregard for the safety of this community. This case is a reminder of the real dangers faced by Police Officers and Jail Deputies on a daily basis. The defendant’s conduct on the roadways and in the jail shows her lack of respect for others and their safety,” said Callanan, according to the documents. “Merrow will now be held accountable for her actions.”

While it is true Merrow rear-ended a car at a red light, implying she was a danger to police officers is nothing short of callous disregard for reality as newly released surveillance footage will show. In the footage, released by Merrow’s attorney during a civil lawsuit against the jail, we see that she was the victim of an assault and most assuredly not the perpetrator of one.

Action starts around the 6:00 mark
