Racist Cops Get Angry in the Presence of Color. Jazmyne McMiller says a white Omaha cop pulled her from an elevator and violently pushed her against a wall and into the hotel's registration desk as she tried to tell him she was a hotel guest and show him her room card key. Then McMiller said one officer forcefully arrested her and choked her while in handcuffs. WOWT 6 News obtained exclusive surveillance video of the incident.
"Why are you doing this to me? I have a room here," said McMiller, who said she repeated this phrase to an officer dozens of times the night of November 30th.
McMiller and her friend, Tynesha Oliver, said they booked rooms at the Downtown Hilton weeks in advance to attend the Terence Crawford boxing match at the CenturyLink Center. When McMiller arrived back at the hotel with her father, Eugene McMiller, she was told there had been a fight in the hotel lobby.
Numerous officers responded to help clear up the mess, which can be seen in the hotel's surveillance video. McMiller was met by Oliver in the lobby, who said she also just learned of the fight.
"As I was going into the elevator, the elevator doors were opened by an officer. They were asking us to show proof that we were guests at the hotel," said McMiller, "I proceeded to show them my key card, I'm a guest here. And then they just snatched me off the elevator, slammed me into the wall and handcuffed me."
"We asked him, what is she being arrested for and he said mind your business before you end up in jail, so I didn't say anything else to him," said Oliver.
In the video, McMiller can be seen walking past the elevator doors in handcuffs and then walk to the receptionist counter.
"The guy at the Hilton says yes, she does have a room here and once he said that the officer just went irate. He just grabbed me by my neck while I'm in handcuffs, and just picked me up off my feet and slammed me onto the countertop," said McMiller.
Then the white cop lied about it. [all racists are liars; white supremacy is carried out primarily through deception].
In the police report the officer states: "At the front desk, McMiller was confirmed as a guest and she turned to [him] and began yelling at [him] and pushed her face closely to [him] (within a couple inches) and began spitting in [his] face while speaking." [MORE]
From [HERE] The city of Omaha has reached a $40,000 settlement with a woman who says police used excessive force when they arrested her at a downtown hotel.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that the City Council voted Tuesday to approve the settlement with Jazmyne McMiller, who was arrested in 2014 at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Officer Fred Hiykel had been called to the hotel for a disturbance. McMiller says Hiykel pulled her from an elevator and violently pushed her against a wall and into the hotel's registration desk as she tried to tell him she was a hotel guest and show him her room card key.
Hiykel denied shoving McMiller into the desk and said she screamed at and spat on him.
A charge of disorderly conduct against McMiller was later dismissed.
