Watch: Florida Cop that Hit Teen in Face Resigns from Department

A sheriff’s deputy in Fort Myers, Florida has resigned after he was caught on video striking a teenager in the face while the teen was wearing handcuffs. Deputy Blake Grossi of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office elbowed 17-year-old Bienvenido Roman in the face during an arrest on February 12.

Grossi didn’t know that a neighbor was video recording the incident when he struck Roman in the face without provocation. On February 20 Lee County Sheriff announced that Grossi had resigned from his duties. Grossi was initially put on administrative leave after the assault, according to NBC 2 News.

A Statement from Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno:

“On Thursday, February 14, 2019, I learned of an incident where a suspect in our custody was mistreated. Regardless of what occurred prior to this incident, our deputies are held to the highest standards, we respect everyone’s constitutional rights, and we will not tolerate mistreatment of any suspect. The deputy involved has resigned, and is no longer subject to our internal disciplinary process; however, this does not end our responsibility, the matter is being referred to the State Attorney’s Office for review.”

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.
