Happy February! It's Business As Usual in the state of Kentucky.

So, unless you haven't checked the news within the past couple days, you may not know that a 16 year old girl was found dead in Kentucky police custody.
MSN reported that Gynnya McMillen was taken into custody "at about 2 a.m. on Jan. 10 for a domestic violence related offense at her home. After tangling with several guards over the removal of her sweatshirt, an “Aikido restraint” was used on the teen."
So, basically, a rowdy teen was so out of control that it required multiple correctional officers to hold her down while martial arts was performed to subdue her?!?! For real?!?!
To make matters worse, inmates that are locked up, in these circumstances, are supposed to be monitored every 15 minutes. Well, that didn't happen. Some 10 hours (or so) after being manhandled, the teen was discovered unresponsive. By the time paramedics arrived, she was pronounced dead.
Her death was ruled a mystery, until video of the kung-fu-like session was released--to the horror of the family. While several officers were involved in the incident, only one person was put on paid leave. Supposedly, the incident is being investigated by Kentucky State Troopers and Internal Investigations Branch. I guess, we'll see how that turns out.


Absolute Power corrupts absolutely. I swear some people who gets in a position of authority they act up. This is horrible!
It'll be business as usual when these kung fu hustlers get nunchunks.
She was lithe compared to the officers pinning her down. It's shocking in the sense that it's an unconscionable thing to do to a person who is INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. But it's not at all shocking that cops strike again, killing more people! @BlueBear07 @misssukyi
That's f'ed up...
This is ridiculous! Even if she was out of control there is no reason to use such force on her. Not only was she a woman, she was a 16 yr old TEEN! You're telling me a grown man can't subdue a teenager without using deadly force!?? Was she a 6'5 body builder or something!? Absolutely no excuse for their actions. Someone should pay for this. 😠
