This girl posted the accusation on social media. It turns out she complained about the WRONG police department.
Burlington Police Chief Brandon del Pozo doesn’t take kindly to lies directed at police.
He confronts them directly.
Burlington, VT – 18-year-old Logan Huysman took to social media after her arrest, claiming that Burlington police sexually assaulted her. She even showed off bruises on her arms as proof. In response, Chief Brandon del Pozo released the bodycam footage which showed an impaired Huysman acting disorderly, assaulting police officers, and more (video below.)
Not only that, but Chief Brandon del Pozo even responded directly to the girl’s Facebook post, prompting a wave of outrage at the girl’s behavior which resulted in her deleting the post.
Of course he’s taking heat for it from the ACLU.
Because he’s using facts — like a bodycam video of Huysman’s bad behavior — to ‘shut down conversations’.
“There’s a fine line between engaging the community, which is something we want our law enforcement officers to do, and doing what some might see as trying to shut down conversations,” said Jay Diaz, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont, according to Katie Jickling with Seven Days. “Affirmatively posting on a citizen’s Facebook page, especially in a sensitive situation, seems fairly inappropriate and would be understandably chilling.”
Let’s take a look at some of the facts.
On June 22, Burlington police officers saw a car running in the parking lot of Cumberland Farms on Pine St. The occupants were teens — all of them passed out in the car with alcohol and marijuana next to them. During the 90-minute confrontation, Huysman became difficult to deal with.
Huysman demanded that the officer pay her $80 for her marijuana bong, threatened suicide, performed cartwheels, destroyed paperwork, reached into her waistband and simulated producing a gun with her hand, pointing it at officers, screamed at officers, resisted arrest, and assaulted officers.
She was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and simple assault on an officer. During the bodycam footage, the officer says that she is repeatedly kicking him and requests that she stop. She doesn’t.
After her release, Huysman claimed on social media that police touched her inappropriately, and posted pictures of her bruised arms. “I would consider that sexual assault, especially coming from ‘authority,’” she said. She later claimed that the post was meant to be a “wake-up call” on police misconduct, indicated that she has still failed to take responsibility for the situation even though she now says that she regrets making the post.
Logan Huysman’s father saw the footage and it siding with the police, saying, “She was resisting arrest, and she had to be forcefully put in the police car. The police showed more patience than I would have.”

Well, at least her dad sees that his daughter wasn’t behaving appropriately.
Logan Huysman should learn to take more responsibility for herself and her decisions instead of blame-shifting when things go south.
She needs this:
