Father Outraged After Cop Breaks His 14-Yr-Old Daughter’s Arm in Half
GREENACRES — Less than a year after one of its police officers was arrested and charged with having unprotected sex with several women, knowing that he was HIV positive, the Greenacres, Florida Police Department is back in the spotlight.
In an exclusive story which I am breaking here on my blog, a young girl’s father vows to seek justice for his daughter, after a Greenacres Police officer broke her arm.
The incident took place on Tuesday October 21, 2014 inside John I. Leonard High School.
That’s where 14-year old Daniella Galindo was talking on her cell phone with her mom when Green Acres Police officer Jared Nash walked up to the teen, and asked her who she was talking to.
When Daniella replied that she was speaking with her mom, officer Nash demanded that she give him her phone.
Then, to add insult to injury, in the literal sense, as the young girl cried in pain with her arm broken, officer Nash pulled Daniella’s arms back behind her back and handcuffed her.
Galindo says that it was then that a school sentry named Perez told officer Nash to remove tne handcuffs.
“I want him fired,” Jeremy Galindo, Daniella’s father told me in a phone interview Sunday night.
“They (police) are saying that the officer’s excessive force was justified because they say my daughter pulled away from him,” Galindo said, adding, “So one of your officers breaks a minor’s arm and you don’t investigate?”
According to Jeremy Galindo, his daughter’s assault by officer Jared Nash was caught on the school’s video surveillance system, but school officials are refusing to release the video.
“They (school) have already admitted that there is a video, so they can’t go back now and say that there isn’t.”
