Paul Schene, King County Deputy, Caught On Tape Punching, Kicking 15-
Year-Old Girl (VIDEO)

SEATTLE — A King County sheriff's deputy kicks a 15-year-old girl,
slams her to the floor of a jail cell, strikes her and pulls her hair
in violence captured on videotape.

Prosecutors released the surveillance video in Friday in the assault
case against Deputy Paul Schene, who is accused of using excessive
force on the girl.

The footage shows the attack beginning after the girl enters the cell
at suburban SeaTac City Hall and kicks off one of her shoes toward the
deputy.




Schene, 31, pleaded not guilty to fourth-degree assault in Superior
Court on Thursday.

The incident last November began after the girl was brought in for an
auto theft investigation, according to court documents.

"We believe this case is beyond just police misconduct, it's criminal
misconduct," King County Prosecutor Daniel Satterberg said. "This is
clearly excessive force."

Satterberg added the case is uncommon because cameras captured the
entire incident.

Schene was investigated previously for shooting two people _ killing
one _ in the line of duty in 2002 and 2006. Both times his actions
were found to be justified, said Ian Goodhew, prosecutor's deputy
chief of staff.

Calls by The Associated Press to Schene's lawyer Anne Bremner were not
immediately returned Friday. Bremner, however, released a statement to
the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in which she said the video does not
tell the whole story. Bremner had asked Judge Catherine Shaffer to not
release the video to the media.

"As we argued to the judge, it will inflame public opinion and will
severely impact the deputy's right to a fair trial," Bremner said.

In the video, a deputy kicks the girl, pushing her back toward the
wall. The deputy then strongly backs the girl against the wall, and
slams her to the floor by grabbing her hair. A second deputy enters
the holding cell, while the first deputy holds the girl face down to
the floor. The first deputy appears to hit the girl with his hands.
The girl is then lifted up and led out of the cell while the first
deputy holds her hair.

The second officer shown in the video was a trainee at the time and is
not under investigation, Goodhew said.

According to court documents, the girl complained of breathing
problems after the incident and medics were called to check her. A
short time later, she was taken to a youth detention center and booked
for investigation of auto theft and third-degree assault, the latter
accusation dealing with her conduct toward the deputy. The girl has
pleaded not guilty to taking a motor vehicle without permission,
Goodhew said Friday, adding she was never formally charged with
assault.

Schene told investigators through an e-mail conversation with his
lawyer that once he was assaulted by the girl kicking her shoe at him,
he entered the cell to "prevent another assault," according to court
documents. Schene also said that the girl failed to comply with
instructions in the holding area.

Prosecutors said Schene did not explain why he struck the girl after
he had her in a holding position on the floor.

Deputy thought, 'This guy's gonna kill me'
Officer tells jurors at inquest he believed at first that Jo was drunk

By HECTOR CASTRO
P-I REPORTER

A man shot and killed by a King County sheriff's deputy last summer
had nothing in his system stronger than caffeine, yet Pedro Jo behaved
like a drunken man and attacked without provocation, the deputy
testified Wednesday.

"I thought the interaction was a bit weird," Deputy Paul Schene said
of his initial meeting with Jo. "His behavior seemed out of the norm."

The shooting happened shortly after 2 a.m. June 6 after Schene stopped
Jo's Pontiac Bonneville alongside the northbound lanes of Interstate 5
near the exit to Swift Avenue and Albro Place in Georgetown.
Toxicology tests later revealed Jo had no drugs or alcohol in his
system.

So far, no evidence has been given during an inquest into the shooting
death as to what motivated Jo to suddenly attack a deputy, though
relatives have said he had a history of mental illness.

But testifying Wednesday, Schene, 29, told the six jurors he at first
thought Jo was drunk. The deputy was en route to downtown Seattle with
a prisoner when he said he saw the Pontiac speeding at more than 100
mph.

The deputy got behind the car and activated his blue and red lights to
pull the driver over. He was not prepared for what the driver did
next.

"He just stopped," Schene said.

The deputy said he was alarmed that the car was stopped in the middle
of the freeway, so he got on his public address system and ordered the
driver to pull over. When the car stayed put, Schene ran to the
Pontiac, banged on the window with his flashlight and said he hollered
to the driver to pull to the side of the road.

Jo did so, Schene said, but very slowly, parking with part of his car
still in the lane of travel.

He then opened his door and vomited.

"I thought he was drunk," Schene said. But he did not smell alcohol on
Jo's breath.

He called in to dispatchers to run the license plate on Jo's car, then
asked Jo to get his license and other paperwork. Back at his patrol
car, his prisoner was yelling that her handcuffs were too tight.

Schene testified that he saw Jo near the Pontiac as he began adjusting
the handcuffs on his prisoner. When next he looked, Jo was coming up
behind him, walking in the lane of traffic.

The ensuing brawl was brutal, with Jo having the upper hand for most
of it. They fought in the freeway, on top of the patrol car, on the
Pontiac, on the ground.

At one point, with the deputy on his hands and knees, Jo began to
choke Schene with his own microphone cord. At the same time, he tried
to yank Schene's gun from its holster. Failing that, he began dragging
Schene around by the cord, still wrapped around the deputy's neck.

Schene said he was finally able to kick himself free somewhere near
the front of the Pontiac. Jo responded by throwing the microphone, now
torn from the cord, at the deputy, then running to his car.

Fearing Jo might have a weapon in the car, Schene stood up and drew
his gun.

"If he was going to his car, it was to come back and finish me off,"
he testified.

When Schene said Jo ignored his order to stop, and appeared to reach
toward the passenger seat, Schene opened fire, shooting six or seven
times. He paused, saw Jo move, and fired another volley, Schene said.

Jo was struck by 11 bullets, at least three hitting his heart.

The inquest, a fact-finding hearing, should wrap up today. Jurors will
be asked to answer a series of questions regarding the circumstances
of Jo's death. One key question likely will be whether Schene had
reason to fear for his safety or the safety of others.

"I'd never been in a fight like this before," he said during
testimony. "I was thinking the whole time, 'If I lose, this guy's
gonna kill me.' "

When her lawsuit against the city is settled she may
well regard this incident as the best thing that ever
happened to her. It will make Rodney King's $3.5 million
award look like chump change.

I don't think so. The 15-year old could have been a martial arts
expert who could kill with any thrust, hand or foot. A lethal machine,
as it were. She exposed herself by that lightning-fast kick to Deputy
Paul Schene's body, dangerously close to his throat and eyes. He could
have been seriously injured, even killed. Obviously this was an
attempt to kill the officer and make an escape. She would've killed
perhaps dozens of innocent people on her way out of the county
facility.

She should be tried as an adult and given 30 or 40 years to straighten
her out.
