Denise Pitts Wants Justice for Police Brutality

Pitts, a mother of four, paid over five thousand dollars for surgery, where she says that the procedure involved using a screw to join the broken bone. She wants justice and needs assistance because she will be out of work for the next three months. It’s a most horrific experience which Pitts says was a night of enjoyment gone terribly wrong.

“I do not know him by the name, but if I do see him, I can identify the officer. And that’s all I am asking for, the help. Right now I have four children – two that I am taking care of and two that is mine by birth. And I can’t help my kids if I am out of a job. And just one night of enjoyment turn out into this and I don’t know what else I could do ‘cause I just need the help. I just want the officers to try speed up this cause I know they find out dah who mi deh ina da trooper that night and find out who was working and they could make I identify this officer so I could get whatsoever he’s taken from me. This was very…I call this unfair because it was off guard. He didn’t have to slam me like that.”

“Were you fighting or obstructing?”


Denise Pitts

“That’s the thing. I was not doing anything to the officer but asking him why I am not allowed to go back in when I was not involved in the fight.”


Pitts says that the surgery will allow for a speedy healing process, but maintains that she wants justice.
