A Washington woman suffering from mental and hearing disabilities was left with severe bruises on her face after she claims an officer punched over and over her because she could not understand his orders.
Megan Graham, 36, of Federal Way, dialed 911 while being arrested last Monday to complain about police brutality after being pulled over by an officer and hit in the face.
Things quickly spiraled out of control during Graham's run-in with police officers, whom the 36-year-old disabled woman had accused of hitting her several times in the face while attempting to restrain her.

This is the type of people THEY ARE RECRUITING!!!
Think about that very carefully- there are usually many times more applicants than there are available openings for police positions.
They get to pick the ones they want. And they picked THIS GUY????
Now add the homo’s in charge (people with no moral compass) and you have what the Nazi SS was like.
If you’re deaf you don’t understand the ‘orders’ (how do you say orders in German?) so they beat the 0bama out of you. Nice. So tell me we are in the ‘land of the free’. Tell me this isn’t already a fascist country. I would love to hear it even if it isn’t true.
The stupid, self-manhood-doubting sociopaths who constitute a significant percentage of American police forces now seem to think that uttering the words “stop resisting” yields the license to beat their fellow American citizens. These idiots seem to think that if they have a perception of being “dissed” they should immediately start their physical retributions to restore their honor.
We really need to fire such officers immediately to start sending the message to the rest of the force that they are meant to be protectors of the citizens and not their oppressors or overlords.
You guys still don’t get it- the government wants thugs, intimidators and enforcers. “Barrack wants to fundamentally change America.”
He’s a Fascist, and these are his foot soldiers -his Brown Shirts.
‘roid rage? Better we be testing the LEO community than sports figures. The latter are entertainers, the former have the power of life and death over us.
If it were up to one New York state legislator, before too long she could be charged with annoying the officer. ‘Aggravated annoyance’, a felony.
You can’t make this chit up
Cops need to get back to their primary job:
Raising Revenue for the Welfare State.
Did her license list hearing disability on it. Under restrictions mine says "corrective lenses."
My wife is a ASL interpreter and she said that most of her clients carry a card that states that they are deaf and need an interpreter or need written communication.
Good luck with that. Won't happen. A brother-in-law is a cop, and used to brag about his buddies beating down suspects, sometimes totally innocent suspects. We were buddies as teens and he was a punk. This was several decades ago, and he's still on the force although mellower now. The younger cops now are worse. I have another brother-in-law who left the police force because of witnessing the savagery; he wouldn't participate. Remember, the cops are not your friends.
Remember, the cops are not your friends.
Words of Wisdom indeed. Freedom loving folks should pay heed to them.
Deaf people use cell phones? Interesting.
the change from a year and back when i would say something negative about cops and face people on here who thought it was their patriotic duty to protect the cops.
They all think they are the law these days.
New York second only to Illinois for corruption.
Yes, I guess. She said she thought she was being pulled over for using her cell phone.
‘Good thing this wasn’t a black woman or there would be rioting in the streets.
“Federal Way police, however, offered a different version of events, claiming that when an officer approached Graham to arrest her, she clenched her fists, took a fighter’s stance and tried to strike the cop.”
Really? An apparently overweight, deaf, 36 year old woman dropped into a “fighter’s stance” and tried to take down a cop? Color me skeptical.
With a smartphone you can sign using the face to face video app. There are also talk to text apps.
Smartphones are a boon to the deaf community.
Basic reporting is to indicate the ‘where’. Is this Washington state, or Washington D.C.?
How was she using her cell phone if she’s deaf? And certainly while driving!?!?
See post 20
While DRIVING? I’m crazy, but not insane!
Once she thus defied his orders and dissed his authority the beating was inevitable.
What kind of a dumb remark is that? Thinking before typing is often wise.
Have you heard of texting while driving?
Even deaf people know you don’t use your cell phone when you are driving and you don’t walk away from a cop when he’s pulled you over.
As for deaf people using cell phones, it’s a perfectly legit question to ask in the context of this story. So go make yourself a cup of tea and relax already.
Tar, Feathers, Rail and Rope!
I don't like tea. I had a gin and tonic, instead. Much better now.
