Although it happened a couple of weeks ago, more attention is now being paid to Gabrielle Calhoun, a young woman who was severely beaten by members of the Bloomington, IL, police department.

Gabrielle was following behind a male friend who was being inexplicably detained by police.

An officer suddenly hauled off and knocked her unconscious with a night stick.


Police broke up the fight and allowed the two girls to go inside the Denny’s and clean up. However, the girls started their fight again inside the restaurant. The police came into the restaurant to break the fight up.


According to, the police approached Gabriella’s table, grabbed one of her male friends and escorted him out of Denny’s, even though he had nothing to do with the fight.


Calhoun followed the police and her friend, but was suddenly knocked unconscious by a female officer who hit her in the head with a night stick.

“I awoke spitting my teeth out on the ground,” claims Calhoun. “When I came to, the officer begin to choke me again. When I was finally able to talk, I asked the officer to please let me go because I have asthma, but she said, ‘I don’t care if you have asthma. You were hitting my officer.’”


“Afterward, the officer kept saying over and over again, ‘how was your party’ as she held my face to the ground.”


Calhoun was taken to jail and booked for felony aggravated battery and two misdemeanors for resisting arrest.
