To whom would I report this sort of police misconduct in a domestic violence call?
When the police arrived, her mother was out front to charm them. Both mother and daughter confirm the police came in, cuffed my daughter, did not follow up on the 911 call about being hit, and were sympathetic to her mother having to deal with a mouthy teenager. They offered to take her to juvenile hall or to let her stay if her mother spanked her with a belt with them watching. Her mother gladly agreed.
So, after getting beaten by her mom, the police coming to help supervised her being spanked in handcuffs, uncuffed her, made her bend over the sofa for more, then, since the belt didn't hurt enough in a denim skirt, made her change into sophies for more beating while being forced to repeat in complete sentences how she'd change her behavior.
My daughter could not have been more humiliated. She's with me now.
Who's the best person to report this to, and how do I find them?
To those suggesting help from the mother - this is an abusive woman with borderline personality disorder who is unlikely to give me badge numbers and names when I ask her, but I will ask. They may have to go from the record of the 911 call or something.
To those who say "it can't happen", I say, "it shouldn't, but it does". My son spent a night in jail charged with possessing cigarettes at 18. An ex-girlfriend once disappeared during a break between sets at a music club because police arrested her for vagrancy when she stepped outside barefoot without her purse, beat her when she protested loudly, and got away with it by claiming she resisted arrest. Not all cops are good.
Thanks to all with helpful suggestions
