The NAACP is responding to an altercation between Nacogdoches county jailers and an inmate that happened earlier this month.
Brandon Rogers is facing two counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer. He was being moved from the day room back to his cell when the fight started. Rogers and two jail employees were injured.
A NAACP statement claims that Rogers was " a battered victim of alleged police brutality and alleged misconduct of officers at the hands of taxpayer-paid county personnel." Their statement goes on to say that they are seeking "total vindicaton of Mr. Brandon Rogers in this matter."
