Officer ‘Feared For Safety’

November 13th, 2017 · 42 Comments · Law Enforcement, News and Events

From CT Post reporters Dan Tepfer and Michael P. Mayko:

A female police officer, under fire after a video was made public showing her repeatedly punching a black teenager following a minor traffic accident Friday night, defended her actions in a report obtained Monday by Hearst Connecticut Media.

“I feared for my safety as well as officers on scene that suspect was pulling away and actively resisting due to concealing a firearm. Due to these reasons I then struck (Aaron) Kearney multiple times in the face with both fists in an attempt for him to loosen his grip of his arms and bring them out from his body,” Officer Christina Arroyo states in her addendum to the main report on the incident.

But City Councilwoman Eneida Martinez said she did not find the officer’s story convincing.

“This kid didn’t have a weapon, the excessive force she (Arroyo) used wasn’t called for,” Martinez said.

    “I feared for my safety as well as officers on scene that suspect was pulling away and actively resisting due to concealing a firearm.

Blacks lives don’t matter.

    Day and Ron seemingly the kid was black. So was does the mother”s distasteful proclamation mean, and what the mood of White America?

    • John Marshall Lee

      If the officer completing the report(s) indicated that the party at fault in the accident happened to be a WHITE MALE, does that make any difference? Or just add to the difficulty for delivering a just and fair level of service that can be expected no matter the color of your skin? If you are the subject of a bi-racial marriage in recent generations can you predict how police or others in the community will receive you? Do high school graduates within 6 months of that “high point” commonly believe that they are positioned on the top of the world and do not need to slow down for others, or what? Do we have a better way for the community to prepare for future conflicts of this type? Time will tell.

        NO
        NO
        NO
        No but Bridgeport graduation rate is slightly above 60% so that mean 40% are not graduation (what about then) and for those who do graduate are under educated to compete with kids in other towns and cities. So our kids who come out of BBPS if they come out all are going to have a far more negative effect because of BPT’s current education system we are delivering than being arrested with excessive force.

        Yes, comply with the offices so you don’t give angry officers a reason to vent out their ” ” angry on you. Stop the ” ” blue culture they create such anger so their ” ” and the public doesn’t get abused by them. Give them body cameras to help those angry cops control their anger while in public Their ” ” not so much unfortunately. Fire those whose anger is to great to get under control. If you are not going to punish a cop for their anger aggressiveness don’t expect it to stop.

    This was not about race, it was a punk kid with an attitude. 

    According to police reports Aaron Kearney caused the accident, was found to not have insurance on his vehicle or a valid driver’s license. He resisted arrest, was verbally aggressive toward the officers at the scene and spat in the face of Officer Arroyo. She punched him in the face and threatened his mother who was recording the incident with her iPhone. 

    Officer Arroyo’s conduct was unprofessional but that doesn’t entitle Mr. Kearney to a free pass.

      I challenge your posts because you are a stupid asshole who thinks he knows everything. Jesus H. Christ, ordering a Happy Meal at McDonald’s must be a Herculean effort because your English is so poor.

      Take a pill and get over yourself.

  • Robert Teixeira

    TBK I know you would have to get the last word in, but you’re so bad you would call out you own stupidity just to get another word in. SMH.

      Yes Robert, I momentarily forgot you are a stupid asshole. You did remind me if the fact, in short fashion.

        Who says I’m not enlighten? I don’t have to google anything for enlightenment. All I have to do is look at the misery of you.

          Ah, a little defensive, eh? It’s okay, the attendents will have your medication ready by supper time.

        • The Bridgeport Kid

          Stop shking your head, your meager brains might become dislodged.

        • Robert Teixeira

          I’m defensive? OK

          Robert,

          You don’t know what the hell you are taling about. You are a stupid asshole, borderline imbecilic. Do everyone a favor, have a steaming hot cup of Shut The Fuck up. Pronto.
          #notSMH :) OK

    Officer Christina Arroyo said, “I feared for my safety as well as officers on scene that suspect was pulling away and actively resisting due to concealing a firearm. Due to these reasons I then struck (Aaron) Kearney multiple times in the face with both fists in an attempt for him to loosen his grip of his arms and bring them out from his body,” well, didn’t Aaron Kearney feel the way?
