KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- She was shot in the stomach, and survived. For the first time since the shooting two weeks ago, Trenton Police Officer Jasmine Diab talked about her brush with death.

Officer Diab was transporting an inmate when he allegedly shot her in the stomach on June 14. She lost a dangerous amount of blood, and had a 20% chance of survival, according to doctors.

Now, she’s getting stronger, a feat she says she could not have done alone.

When I first woke up, I had the tube in, and I didn’t feel like myself, I was just really scared," said Diab while sitting in her hospital bed.

I retired from the TDCJ-ID and it amazes me how complacent some of these Officers are. Letting an inmate get that close to you while your carry a weapon is beyond me. Assuming he got her weapon from her!!
I was at the Galveston County Jail a few weeks ago and saw first hand how this crap happens.An older black officer entered the Sallyport with an inmate. Got out of his unit with the inmate walking right behind him while he's carry his weapon. The Officer took his weapon out of his holster and proceeded to unlock the lock box.
That inmate could have grabbed that gun at any moment. You Officers got to watch yourselves if you want to go home to your families alive
Respectfully, EJM
