In Hialeah, Florida, a 17-year-old lesbian has filed a police report after a cop allegedly detained her, sexually harassed her and alluded to raping her.
The 17-year-old and her girlfriend, who have both asked not to be identified, were pulled over for making a u-turn and detained for questioning. Sgt. Jesus Menocal, Jr. told the teenager to get in the back of his police car to go to the substation for further questioning, while the other woman followed behind in her car. When they got to the station, Menocal, Jr. took the teen into a private room. Here's what happened next (triggers for sexual assault):
"[He asked me] how do I have intercourse, and I told him, 'Why do I need to answer that? Why is that necessary?'" the young woman said to WSVN. "He insisted me to answer it, so I told him how me and my partner have intercourse, which is me and my girlfriend. After, he asked if I was a virgin. He asked me, if he was to test me right that moment, if I had any diseases on me."
The young woman says Menocal, Jr. then put one hand below his weapon belt and began rubbing his genitals over his pants. Detained without charge, the teen says at this point she feared she would be arrested and jailed for no reason. "He put me in a room, he told me I was going to be with investigators," she explained tearfully to WSVN. "And out of nowhere, there's no one in the office."
She alleges Menocal, Jr. then told her "to take off my pants or I was going to get arrested," according to Miami NBC-affiliate WQAM. She says she complied, removing her shorts. "He said let me see your behind. He looks me up and down and asked me if I was on my menstrual. I told him, 'Yes, how did you know?' And he said he was asking me a simple question."
The teen says she then put her shorts back on and the officer asked her to show him her tattoos. "He wanted me to take off my shirt and my bra together, and I told him, 'No. Why do I have to do that? There's no reason to do that,'" she continued. "Then he said, 'Oh I thought you wanted to fuck," she told WSVN.
"Honestly, I thought I was going to get raped. I thought he would make me sleep with him," she said.
When the teen was released, the women filed a police report and secured legal counsel. The sergeant has been suspended with pay and the Health Police Department has begun an investigation. Neither Menocal, Jr. nor his father, a recently retired police chief, has issued a public statement.
What. The. FUCK.
This just got even worse seeing as he's a fucking pedophile too, apparently.
Why is he still being paid? WHY IS HE STILL BEING PAID?
