Officer Jordy Martel
Miami Gardens Police Officer Jordy Yanes Martel is the perfect example of double standards and above the law out of control, bad cops are allowed to escape prosecution by their own police departments.
Miami Gardens Police Officer Jordy Yanes Martel has been fired and now faces charges after bystander video from January 14, 2019 showed him dragging a 33-year-old Black woman named Safiya Satchell out of her SUV, kneeling on her neck and using his Taser on her twice.
Satchell, who was four months pregnant, later miscarried. The video was recorded by her friend.
Officer Jordy Yanes Martel, who is Latino, served as a law enforcement officer for two years. He now faces charges for battery and official misconduct after he allegedly filed two reports on Satchell’s arrest containing falsehoods. He also has two unrelated complaints pending against him in the police department’s division of internal affairs.
A former Miami Gardens, Fla., police officer Jordy Yanes Martel has been charged with misconduct and battery stemming from a January incident in which he used a stun gun on a black woman and knelt on her neck, officials announced Thursday
Officer Jordy Yanes Martel, 30, who was fired last week, is facing two felony counts of official misconduct and four counts of misdemeanor battery in connection with his encounter with Safiya Satchell, 33, after her visit to the Tootsie’s Cabaret strip club on Jan. 14.
The charges, coming amid weeks-long protests against police violence against black people, follow an incident with similarities to the May arrest of George Floyd, a black man who died after a now-fired Minneapolis officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert said in a Thursday news conference that he supported Officer Jordy Yanes Martel’s firing and wants to alert the public that the law applies to everyone, including those sworn to uphold it.
