The inmate sustained a cut above his left eye that required five stitches. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said in a news release the injury was not serious enough for a felony assault charge against the Ohio sheriff's deputy.

Kodak shares plunge after U.S. blocks $765 million loan deal
Shares of Eastman Kodak Co fell about 40% on Monday and were on track for their worst single-day decline after the U.S. government blocked a $765 million loan to the company, which was going to make drug ingredients for use in possible COVID-19 vaccines, because of 'alleged wrongdoing' by executives.
5 stitches, you failed to show the whole story. Hopefully additional charges will be filed against the perpetrator who became combative, and bit the officers foot. Appropriately charge the officer, but follow through and do same for the individual who failed to just submissively comply. a kicknor blow to the head of someone who was on the ground is intent to murder, was not self defence if it was the other way around, that kid would have gotten 15 to 30 years in jail
If it is thailand. It will be accused of overreacting. Real professionals (doctors, social workers, judges, police officers ...) do not have the right to personal revenge in response to the behavior of individuals by using the superiority and advantage of their professional status. it's a power thing, race kinda but that's for smart people
Thats the problem! No one should have to go to the hospital if they are doing their jobs Now that you are seeing it are you getting it yet? idk, 5 stitches sounds serious enough to me, especially considering he’s a cop. should be held to a higher standard. That's it.. Just like in Russia... Well done. Well this is why cops (all) will continue to be hurt
Ok but was he fired? Maybe the criminal has HIV. I wouldn't want him biting me. I'm glad the police officer kicked him in the head Of course that punk didn't do anything to cause the injury like resisting arrest by fighting them?! Those who feel sorry for most criminals are their own worst enemies! Coppers are not helping themselves these days.
Just stay down when asked to stay down. Does USA Today ever report on all the good things the police do? Just can't leave IT Alone, Can YOU ? ! ? Lol. Damn guys. This shit has been going on forever. White, black, Hispanic, Asian. They DGAF. This isn't new. SeattlePD is doing similar stuff to random civilians in Seattle right now too.
If a 'regular person'did this it WOULD be felony assault. Cops are sick in the head. If only that inmate was black, the cop would not only be charged with felony assault but he’d be fired immediately and jailed with bail set at $1 million, minimum. At least one riot would be a direct result of this assault, too.
okay, this is overkill. its a friggin inmate! Lol
COVID-19 spike in Ohio due to people not wearing masks, expert saysCOVID-19 is on the rise again in Ohio, and an expert blames young people who aren't wearing masks: 'We have to get the message out that this is not over and it’s not going to be over for a while.' You can’t they will or they won’t but, only in America is going to be devastated by this no one else. I know 40% of Americans don’t care about anyone other themselves unless it affects them only thats but one day soon it will affect you. Here is Worcester MA we wear masks It has nothing to do with mask wearing — testing asymptomatic cases does not have a death lag When I go shopping, I have my mask on, and the people that are guilty about not wearing them are the young people. Especially men between the ages of 20 to 45. I almost want to tell them that they are murderers. Living in a red state is a danger to your health.
