Houston Cop Sued for Unprovoked Beating of Handcuffed Inmate

A Houston cop beat an inmate as he was booking him into Houston City Jail. Surveillance cameras captured the beating but the officer received only a slap on the wrist.

Now the victim, who ended up with a permanent scar on his forehead, is suing the Houston Police Department.

Rueben Williams, who filed the lawsuit this week, was arrested on a DUI charge back on November 2014 by Officer S. Corral, who then beat him on his way to a holding cell.

Corral slammed Williams’ head into the cell door, causing a gash above his eye. He then shoved Williams against the wall applying a neck hold causing him to collapse onto the floor.

Besides the permanent scar, Williams says suffers from anxiety and depression because of the ordeal.

Surveillance footage captured the incident showing Williams writhing on the floor of the cell in his own blood. The video then shows another officer enter the cell to provide first aid to Williams as Corral watches.

Williams’ father, Reuben Williams Sr., has seen the video once and does not want to view the tape again.

“Members of the family in Austin have been calling me, (a) brother in California. Things have gotten out. This is absolutely disgusting, just the whole way it was handled. HPD never intended for this video to come out,” Williams Sr. said.

Williams’ attorney is calling for body camera footage as well as disciplinary actions to be taken against Officer Corral.

According to Williams’ attorney, Randall Kallinen, 250 shootings by the Houston Police Department are on record without any disciplinary actions.

The current mayor has the support of the department in his election very early but Kallinen wants the mayor to show people the body cam videos. “They need to release videos and they need to discipline their officers.”

Click 2 News reports that Corrall has only received counseling and additional training in connection with the incident.

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.
