The Broward Sheriff’s Office in Florida is conducting an investigation after one deputy was caught on video dragging a woman suffering from mental illness through a courthouse hallway by her ankle shackles, the New York Daily News reports.
In the video, the woman, 28-year-old Dasyl Rios, can be hearing screaming (though not resisting), “Stop! You’re hurting me! You’re f–king hurting me!” She also cries out about hating her life and wishing that they would just kill her.
Rios suffers from bipolar disorder and was at the county court earlier this week for a status hearing after doctors found her mentally incompetent, the Daily News notes.
The deputy dragging Rios by her ankle shackles even as she screams for her mother has been identified as Christopher Johnson.
