POLICE BRUTALITY

By Carlos Miller

The video that went viral after it was posted on PINAC Monday, showing a woman being placed in a chokehold after she refused to provide identification, led to the resignation of one officer and disciplinary action against another after a dash cam video obtained through a PINAC public records request ended up contradicting an earlier statement from the police chief.

The day the initial video was posted, Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd D. Simpson issued a press release in which he said Lanessa Espinosa was involved in a fight with a large group of people, which is why the officers had probable cause to demand her identification.

Simpson also stated the following:

The Corpus Christi Police Department prides itself in transparency and respects the public’s right to photograph and record in public. Our officers are trained to be respectful during police/citizen contacts and de-escalation techniques.

Furthermore, members of the Corpus Christi Police Department do not interfere with citizens who wish to photograph or record our officers in the public space.

But then the dash cam footage requested by PINAC’s growing research team revealed that Corpus Christi Police Sergeant Jerry Lockhart ordered her to delete the footage she had recorded of him placing her in handcuffs after a Nueces County district attorney officer placed her in a chokehold.

It also shows she was not part of the fight because they had that group lined up against a van away from Espinosa.

Nueces County district attorney officer Gary Witherspoon ended up resigning to avoid termination because of that chokehold.

And Lockhart was “formally disciplined” for ordering her to delete the footage, although Simpson did not specify exactly how he would be disciplined.
