In one of two incidents at the Cuyahoga County Jail, a corrections officer reportedly grabbed an inmate by the back of his neck after he ignored the order to stop praying, in an area of the prison not designated for praying.
Cleveland19 “We’re gravely concerned about any incident like this, where a person’s religious rights and their right to be free from excessive force have been violated,” said Julia Shearson, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations/CAIR, Northern Ohio Chapter.

Witnesses say he reportedly demanded the Muslim stop praying and move to another cell, and that he grabbed the praying inmate by the back of his neck, dragged him about 30 feet and slammed his head to the floor before putting him in a cell.
Guidelines for Muslims while praying say they may not respond to a ringing phone or conversation. (Who cares? He isn’t in a mosque, he’s in a jai)
There was a second incident involving another corrections officer and an inmate with Tourette syndrome. The officer reportedly used excessive force when grabbing the man, that he says was attacking a nurse.
