Woman Sues NM Police Over Genital Torture

A woman in New Mexico, Marlene Tapia, is suing after she was arrested for a parole violation involving suspected drug use, and a police officer took it on herself to punish this woman by repeatedly spraying her vagina with mace, causing her extreme pain and very red and swollen genitals.  The plaintiff claims this punishment caused her weeks of suffering and was unprofessional and a form of torture. The officer involved appears to have been a female as well, yet the actions are seen as similar to sexual assault or torture. A lawyer for a NM chapter of The American Civil Liberties Union is representing Tapia.
