Black Woman Tased In Back - While on Her Knees

Another American Post-Racial Moment

This one out of Cincinnati.

Cincinnati police say the preliminary investigations says Officer Anthony Plummer's actions were not in compliance with Cincinnati Police Departments policies and procedures. Also, the tasing investigation has been recommended to be conducted by the internal investigation section.

Cincinnati police arrested and used a Taser on Celeste Thomas, the daughter of Cincinnati city councilman Cecil Thomas, early Sunday morning.

Her arrest report indicates that Thomas had marks on her upper back from the Taser's barbs.

"It is my understanding that she was on her knees when she was Tased in the back," said Cecil Thomas.

Official comment from the Cincinnati Police Department was not immediately forthcoming. Councilman Thomas, however, said that in a phone call with a senior officer early Sunday morning he was told that police would be reviewing the incident.

A source with knowledge of the incident tells 9News that the officer who used the Taser is Anthony Plummer.

Plummer was investigated by the Cincinnati’s Citizen Complaint Authority in a 2006 complaint stemming from another Tasing incident in which use of excessive force was alleged. In that incident, Plummer was found to have used excessive force.

Additionally, sources tell 9News that Plummer was terminated for issues related to excessive force but reinstated last year after arbitration. More HERE


  1. There is no Punishment more CRUEL and UNUSUAL than Torture by Electrocution. Cruel and UNUSUAL punishment is clearly a Constitutional Violation. Email your Congress Person and tell them to get behind the Michael Jacobs-Federal Anti Torture by Civilians And Police-Law. "The Michael Jacobs FAT-CAP-LAW." This law makes the Manufacture, Sale, Possession and use of Electronic/Electric Torture Devices (E.T.Ds). a Federal Crime. Contact The Southern Christian Leadership Conference backs this law.

  2. Michael Patrick Jacobs Jr was tortured for fifty four seconds with 50,000 volts of electricity by Ft Worth Tx Police until his heart was stopped. His death is ruled a homicide. Count fifty four seconds to see how long he was tortured in excruciating agony before death relieved him. This kind of outrage must stop now. Email Congress and tell them to vote for "The Michael Jacobs FAT-CAP-LAW" outlawing torture and especially Electrical Torture by Police with Electronic Torture Devices. It makes the Manufacture, Sale, Possession and Use of Electric Torture Devices a Federal Crime. This includes the Taser brand E.T.D.
