Florida Cop Smashes Compliant Woman's Face Into Car -- "Maybe Now You Can Understand Simple Instructions"
Chris | InformationLiberation
Eight year veteran Florida police officer Christopher Geraci, 33, didn't appreciate a women he pulled over not following his "simple instructions."
When Abbi Bonds, 29, used her cellphone to phone someone for help, Geraci, who suspected her of being involved in a hit and run, walked up to her casually, took the phone out of her hands, grabbed Abbi's wrist and ordered her, "Turn around and put your hands behind your back."
Abbi calmly asked, "What am I being arrested for..."
Before she could finish her question, Christopher Geraci yanked her arm and viciously slammed Abbi face first into the side of her car. Rather than react to the astonishingly disproportionate use of force by apologizing or taking any remedial steps to correct his error, he decided to slam her again, all the while again ordering her to "put your hands behind your back."
Abbi noticeably was not putting up any resistance, she was flailing around like a rag doll with Geraci's every slam.
"I'm not fighting you, why are you hitting me?" Abbi asks on the brink of tears.
“There. Maybe now you can understand simple instructions,” Geraci responds after finally cuffing her.
“I'm [expletive] a girl, you don’t have to hit me like that,” Abbi says, now sobbing, shocked, and emotionally distraught.
“And you don’t have to sit there and argue with me and fight with me,” Geraci responds.
Geraci then proceeds to instruct Abbi that "pulling her hands" from behind her back, while he was violently slamming her into the side of her car face first, qualified as "resisting."
Therefor, he was totally in the right, and in fact he could charge her with the additional crime of "obstruction of justice."
Abbi never filed a complaint against the officer, instead a supervisor who reviewed the dash cam footage brought the issue to his higher-ups. Christopher Geraci was not only fired, but charged with battery.
Though he is only facing a potential one year jail sentence, the shame of assaulting a compliant woman, thanks to the internet, will stay with him forever.
