"Why Are You Doing This To Me?"

From John Dolan's amazing interview yesterday with Ian Murphy, the reporter who was jailed for “disturbing a religious service" after he waived a dildo at a cop.

As soon as this Corrections Officer came on duty it became immediately apparent that there was going to be some sort of conflict between him and this guy. What I made out all day, drifting in and out of sleep.

He yelled, “Dep, I need my cane To make a phone call” or whatever and then when I woke up I heard “You can walk your fat ass to the phone without the cane.”

I looked up and looked over, the guy put his hand up like this. Then the Corrections Officer just put his hand on the guy’s throat and just started punching him in the face.

And then, about 15 guys ran into the room, just waiting, pouncing on the guy, beating the shit out of him, kidney punches, back of the head, contorting his limbs. The whole time he’s just shouting, “Why are you doing this to me? Why are you doing this to me?”

Am putting in a call to the Erie County Holding Center (in Buffalo, New York) for comment. More when I hear back.
