#Greenville, TX – In yet another case of #police investigating themselves only to determine that they did nothing wrong, a Hunt County Sheriff’s deputy was no-billed after being captured on video punching a pregnant woman numerous times and pushing her stomach first into a kitchen counter, leaving bruises.
During the execution of a #child custody warrant, a 38-week pregnant woman, Deanna Robinson, was arrested. Hunt County Sheriff’s Department went to Robinson’s residence to assist CPS in taking custody of a child after a familial dispute.
Deputies claim that they presented a warrant immediately upon their arrival and allowed her to read it, at which point Robinson began to yell that they weren’t taking her child and attempted to close the door.
Robinson, a decorated Air Force Veteran, who once received the Airman’s Medal for helping drag soldiers from a burning plane in Iraq, has a drastically different accounting of the events that transpired.
She claims that she informed them that nobody was taking her child without a court order or warrant. As she attempted to close the door, the officers plowed through, pushing her up against the counter hard enough to leave serious bruising on her third-trimester belly, and then punching her numerous times.
As we previously reported, the fix was in from the beginning of this case.
From the day this incident became public Sheriff Meeks has been toeing the “thin blue line,” attempting to justify the actions of his officer. In his initial statement after the assault, Meeks forwards a bizarre narrative that the pregnant mother, seen being punched numerous times on video, was actually reaching for the officer’s gun.
