Video of Correction Officer Palomino’s Brutal Punch to Inmates Jaw
Rico Palomino is the newest internet star of the day. The Chicago Cook County Correctional officer has redefined the term “One Hitter Quitter”.
Palomio who has worked as a CO for 12 years was overseeing the inmate receiving area at the Cook County jail when an inmate walked out of the area. The inmate was allegedly going to get a phone number from his personal belongings so he can later make a phone call.
After stopping at the desk where Palomino was sitting and asking a question, the inmate proceeded down the hall toward his belongings. Palomino got up and walked after the inmate telling him to return to the lock up area or he was going to “f&*k him Up”.
Palomino made good on his promise. Palomino hit the inmate with a hard right, dropping him to the floor. Blood was immediately everywhere.
In his feeble attempts to cover up the incident Palomino told the inmate to say that he tried to hit Palomino first or he would say that the inmate tried to escape. After the inmate had to be treated with stitches for the lacerations in his mouth, Palomino was forced to file an incident report alog with other documentation which is standard when an inmate is injured requiring medical attention. Authorities found the reports filed conflicting. One report said that the inmate made and aggressive move towards Palomino’s shirt, as you can see from the video, that was a complete lie.
Well it was all for nothing. When the surveillance footage was revealed charges were brought against Palomino. He was now on the other side of the law. He turned himself in yesterday and bail was set at $10,000. He is looking at potentially 2-5 years. I hope he doesn’t run into the other inmates that he treated like that over the last 12 years. That could be ugly.
Here is the video of the day.
