‘Twist her wrist until she shuts up’

The inmate lay on the floor sobbing, and Sgt. Eric Allen decided he’d had enough.

“Put her in a wrist lock,” he tells another jail officer at the Metropolitan Detention Center, “and twist her wrist until she shuts up and stops crying.”

It doesn’t work. Almost nothing does. The inmate – a petite woman named Susie Chavez – spends the next 45 minutes shrieking, sobbing and crying out in pain as Allen and other officers escort her to a medical unit.

The crying starts after Chavez is hit with a stun gun to the back. She later endures the wrist lock and inflammatory spray to the face. At one point, she starts banging her head on the ground.

The stomach-churning video, released by the county Wednesday in response to a request by the Journal under the Inspection of Public Records Act, is part of an investigation into Sgt. Allen, who’s been on paid leave since January, county and union officials say....

Paid leave since January????????????? WTF??????????
