D.C. ACLU is suing DC Metro PD officers including Terrance Sutton for what it describes as a sexually abusive and unconstitutional search of a Black man in 2019.

What the Hell!!!

According the DCist, The D.C. American Civil Liberties Union is suing a Metropolitan Police Department officer and the District for what it describes as a sexually abusive and unconstitutional search of a District man last January.

The complaint, filed Monday, details an incident on the evening of January 15, 2019, when MPD officers broke down the door of a Petworth apartment with a warrant to search for drugs and paraphernalia on the property—the suit alleges that the warrant did not include the right to search individuals.

All seven people in the apartment, who were there watching sports, were ordered to lie face-down on the ground, according to the suit.

Here’s what the ACLU alleges happened next: Plaintiff Mbalaminwe Mwimanzi was pulled to his feet and searched by an officer who found nothing illegal on him. Officer Terence Sutton pulled Mwimanzi by the shirt and allegedly told him,” You don’t run shit in here,” and said he had a “bad attitude.” Sutton then asked another officer to search Mwimanzi again.

After the first two searches, the suit claims that another officer, defendant Officer Joshua Wilson, told Mwimanzi to spread his legs. Mwimanzi says Wilson forcefully pressed his hand against Mwimanzi’s buttocks and jammed his genitals into his leg, despite Mwimanzi screaming out in pain.

Ultimately, the officers did not seize anything during that January search, per the lawsuit.

After Mwimanzi complained of severe pain in his anus and groin, he was taken to Medstar Washington Hospital Center to receive treatment for his injuries, the lawsuit says.

    It is reprehensible how you made false assertions shown to be false by the body camera footage, and have not printed a correction or retraction. This is just stirring more division, polarization and hatred. Furthermore you have made reference to a lawsuit that does not involve Officer Sutton as the defendent. To what end and for what purpose? (Another officer is charged.) Your article is certainly lacking in complete & unbiased reporting, even down to the photos…used to bias feelings. Where is the reporting on Mr. Hylton’s legal record? There is more to this story than you indicate.
