Watch: Florida Sheriff’s Officer Arrested and Fired for Beating Woman

A rookie Florida law enforcement officer who was caught on video beating a handcuffed woman was fired and arrested Thursday.

Jacksonville sheriff’s officer Akinyemi Borisade, 26, was charged with simple battery.

However, sheriff officials said he will have a chance at “name clearing,” which will enable him to be hired at another law enforcement agency, according to News 4 Jax.

The incident took place Wednesday inside the jail while sheriff’s officers were processing inmates that had just been arrested.

The woman has been identified as Mayra Alejandra Martinez, who was arrested on her first day at her job at a local strip club named Scores where she had gotten into a dispute with management.

She was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest, according to the Florida Times-Union.

The video shows her walking towards officers while in handcuffs, which prompts Borisade to grab her by the arms and shove her hard against a wall.

She responds by kicking at him, but it is not even clear if she even strikes him.

But that sent Borisade into a rage where he repeatedly punches her as one officer casually looks on.

Eventually, another officer walks up and pulls him off her. The officers walk away as the woman falls to the floor.

Borisade was hired in March 2015 and was still on his probationary period, which was why it was so easy to fire him.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
