Minnesota Cop Punches Handcuffed Native American 14-Year-Old Girl in the Face, Then Claims Self-Defense.

A Minnesota police officer with three previous disciplinary actions on his record is only facing 90 days in jail for punching a handcuffed 14-year-old Native American girl in the face, then grabbing her by the jaw and calling her a “fucking bitch.”
The Minneapolis city attorney’s office charged him Monday with one count of misdemeanor fifth-degree assault, according to PINAC.
Even though there is no legitimate reason an armed cop would need to protect himself against a 14-year-old girl handcuffed in the back of a police cruiser, St. Paul Police Officer Michael Soucheray II 38, claims he was acting in self-defense when he punched her last month after she spit in his face during an apparent mental health episode.
Soucheray’s extreme response to the saliva cannot legitimately fall into the self-defense category because the right to self-defense allows a person to legally defend themselves only if their action is proportional to the menace or threat they’re defending themselves from.
PINAC reports on the details of the police brutality:

St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell has not yet fired Soucheray, but reportedly did place the cop on paid administrative leave while his detectives investigate.
Soucheray and his partner, Chris Rhoades, arrived at Brittany’s Place, a shelter in St. Paul for girls and women who’ve experienced trauma and other challenges, after receiving a call from the shelter’s staff after she refused to get in the ambulance to be transported to a hospital for psychiatric help. Officers Soucheray and Roades were initially sent to Brittany’s Place to defuse the situation, but things escalated for the worse after Soucheray handcuffed her and threatened to drag her to his police car if she didn’t cooperate. The girl, who’d been giving staff at the shelter the silent treatment before the cops arrived, answered the threat by going limp as Soucheray and Rhoades dragged her to their patrol car where Soucheray attempted to secure her seat belt According to Soucheray, that’s when the 14-year-old cleared her throat and spit at him, which caused him to so much fear he was forced to defend himself by punching the girl in the face. Then he did it again, grabbing the girl by the jaw, cursing and calling her a “fucking bitch.”
