Target: Kevin Treadway, Flagstaff, Arizona Chief of Police
Goal: Fire the officer who was recorded on video punching a woman in the face.
A police officer in Flagstaff, Ariz., was caught on video punching a woman in the face. The woman was hit after apparently questioning the officer on why she was being arrested. This kind of behavior from a public servant is scary, disgusting and unacceptable. Demand this officer be fired for behaving so irresponsibly.
Flagstaff police officer Jeff Bonar was supposed to be arresting Marissa Morris for an outstanding warrant. Morris denied that she had any warrants and asked to be shown the warrant, saying it was unjust for her to be arrested without it. Officer Bonar then punched Morris right in the face.
Officer Bonar claims that Morris kicked him before the punch, but the video doesn’t appear to show this and Morris claims this is untrue. The warrant for Morris’ arrest was later determined to be outdated.
Punching a woman in the face while she is exercising her lawful rights is wrong. This officer should have known better than to resort to such brutality. Demand the police department fire this officer.
Dear Chief Treadway,
As you know, one of your officers was caught on tape punching a woman in the face after she apparently questioned why she is being arrested. It was later shown the woman had no reason to be arrested and was right to question this.
Punching a woman in the face shows rash behavior and an extreme lack of judgement in this officer, and this is not acceptable. I demand you fire this officer for his actions.
