Memphis, TN asked in Civil Litigation, Criminal Law, Identity Theft and Sexual Harassment for Tennessee

Q: If I have been assaulted by the law officer/s who can I trust to report this crime to and get real help?

It is a very long story. My civil rights have been violated and I was beaten, tased, tortured, and raped in the jail. Then dosed with, what I believe to be phentenol, and let out on the street and arrested again and then sent to a Crisis Center for evaluation (which I passed). But I asked for a lawyer and didn't get one, I requested that they take pictures and document my injuries and that was also refused. I am still being watched and mentally tortured. Please help me. I can't even get out of this town and I am scared almost constantly.
