Victoria White was a peaceful protester on January 6th and then was brutally beaten by Capitol police and later had her home raided and she was placed under arrest because she revealed the truth.
As we all know Team Biden, the FBI, and the DOJ just won’t tolerate the truth. The thugs in the Capitol Police must be culled and they should personally either pony up part of the judgment against them or join Occupy Jail Cell.
White was charged with interfering with a police officer. That must be where she tried to protect herself from the brutal beating she was being given by Officer Jason Bagshaw.
Funny how the police chose women to kill or viciously attack isn’t it? I guess they were too scared to pull that on a man. Once we get a real attorney general in place of Merrick Garland, maybe these criminals will find out what justice is.
According to the lawsuit filed today:
“Officer Jason Bagshaw, acting under the color of law, repeatedly and mercilessly beat Victoria, first with a stick and then with his bare fists. When he beat her, she was not close enough to him to harm him, or even reach him. Bagshaw had to stretch his arm over other officers to beat her repeatedly with his stick. The police had protective equipment and Victoria was unarmed. Her hands were not in a threatening posture. It was obvious that she needed help. There was absolutely no rational reason for Bagshaw to brutally beat her the way he did. Another individual trapped in the tunnel cried out to Bagshaw for mercy, “Please don’t beat her! Please don’t beat her!” But Bagshaw did not listen and he continued to beat her. Beating Victoria did not serve any legitimate law enforcement purpose. No reasonable officer would do such a thing. This was objectively unreasonable behavior given the circumstances. Bagshaw was trying to beat Victoria White to death. The incident can be seen on video here.”
The lawsuit filed Request for Relief states:
“Victoria White seeks economic and punitive damages against Jason Bagshaw for violating her constitutional rights, including but not limited to her constitutional right to be free from unlawful seizures, her constitutional right to be free from excessive and unreasonable force, and her constitutional right not to be discriminated against for her viewpoint. Victoria White also seeks the Court to order Speaker Michael Johnson to conduct an investigation into the police brutality on January 6, 2021.”
This marks the first civil lawsuit against police from January 6th.
White filed the lawsuit Pro Se (or Self-Representing). She filed today in order to meet the Statute of Limitations that runs out on January 6th of this year (in a few days). PLEASE HELP VICTORIA WHITE’S LEGAL EXPENSES HERE. Hopefully she will be able to retain an attorney now that this suit is filed.
Although most Statutes of Limitations have run up for victims of police brutality on January 6th, the last one runs up this year in a few days on January 6th, 2024. Under 42 USC 1983, citizens can sue when the government violates their Constitutional Rights.
White’s lawsuit is filed as a Section 1983 Lawsuit (Suing Police for Civil Rights Violations). According to Nolo.com, Section 1983 refers to a federal statute that allows people to sue for certain kinds of civil rights violations, including excessive police force.
According to Nolo.com:
“The Civil Rights Act of 1871 is a federal statute—numbered 42 U.S.C. § 1983—that allows people to sue the government for civil rights violations. Lawyers sometimes refer to cases brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 as “Section 1983” lawsuits.
A Section 1983 lawsuit is a civil remedy. It applies when someone acting “under color of” state-level or local law has deprived a person of rights created by the U.S. Constitution or federal statutes. Basically, the law gives victims a legal avenue to hold government actors accountable if they use their position to deprive someone of their constitutional rights (such as to be free from unreasonable search and seizure).
