This guy was arrested for “Jaywalking” and suspicion of drug possession…No Drugs were ever found.
The Baltimore Cops are at it again. Man calls 911 for a Ambulance to take him to the Hospital; because he is sick and disoriented.
Baltimore Cops show up and beat the man to death.
A 21-year-old man, who was beaten by police after they responded to a 911 call requesting medical assistance for him, died in a Baltimore area hospital on Wednesday, reports the Guardian.
Tawon Boyd was pronounced dead after doctors failed to revive him following his encounter with the police where he was allegedly punched multiple times and choked by an officer.
According to initial reports from the Baltimore County Police Department, officers responded to a 911 emergency call from Boyd’s girlfriend Deona Styron, but an attorney for Boyd’s family states that the victim is the one who placed the call.
Attorney Latoya Francis-Williams claims Boyd made the call requesting an ambulance because he was feeling disoriented and wanted to be taken to the hospital.
“They really were supposed to be there to get him to the nearest healthcare facility,” Francis-Williams said in a statement.
Responding officers stated that Boyd appeared “confused and paranoid” and asked them to enter his house to see who was inside after telling them that his girlfriend, “got him intoxicated and is secretly recording him while someone else is in the home.”
While police were on the scene, Boyd tried to climb into two different police cruisers before running to a neighbors house where he banged on the door and pleaded with them to call the police.
According to Boyd’s attorney, the police attempted to restrain Boyd, describing it as an “attack.”
“He is literally attacked. And by attacked, I mean the witness [Styron] is describing that he struck many times and struck to the ground,” Francis-Williams explained. “Officer Bowman is the one that when he arrived, really started wailing on Mr. Boyd, meaning Mr. Boyd was on the ground in a prone position and Bowman sat on him, almost straddled his back, and put his left arm under Boyd’s neck and pulled his head up in a choking fashion.”
In the police report, they describe Boyd being struck by twice in the head by an officer with a closed fist.
The police report states, “officers were able to get him under control by using our body weight to keep him on the ground. Officer Bowman controlled Suspect Boyd’s head and arms by holding him down with his arms while I held Suspect Boyd down by leaning on his buttocks/thigh area with my knees and using my arms.”
“According to the witness, Mr Boyd was screaming ‘stop stop, I can’t breathe.’ That could have been from the choking but at the same time, Officer Bowman is punching and striking Mr Boyd in the face and in the neck area,” Francis-Williams said of her conversation with Boyd’s girlfriend. “The witness described that after a little she’s screaming stop and Mr Boyd is kind of foaming at the mouth or spitting and his body goes limp.”
The incident report states the arresting officer asked the paramedics to check for Boyd’s pulse and that he did have a heartbeat before being transported to a local hospital.
While no autopsy report has been released, the report notes that Boyd ended up in intensive care.
There was “swelling on the brain and fluid on the brain because the doctors attempted to drain that,” claimed attorney Francis-Williams, adding, ““My understanding is his kidneys end up failing and at some point, his heart stops.”
Took a while, and a video seen around the world – but San Francisco authorities have finally decided to some down hard on two bad cops.
Two Alameda County sheriff’s deputies have been charged with multiple felonies after video showed them repeatedly hitting a suspected car thief during an arrest in San Francisco last year, officials said Tuesday.
The alleyway beating of the suspect, Stanislav Petrov, was caught on surveillance video (Note: The video, above, is disturbing and contains several shouted obscenities) and released on YouTube in November by the San Francisco public defender’s office, which said it received the footage from someone who operates a security camera in the area.
The grainy footage shows two Alameda County sheriff’s deputies chasing a man on foot. As the man slows, one officer tackles him and punches him twice. The second officer arrives and starts hitting Petrov with his baton. Soon both officers can be seen hitting Petrov with their batons.
Sometimes Petrov can be seen lying on the ground and other times on his knees. Once the officers begin striking him, he does not appear to be resisting.
“Policing that violates our constitutional rights damages the reputation of every person that wears the uniform, and it damages the public’s perception of those that are sworn to serve,” San Francisco Dist. Atty. George Gascon said in a statement announcing the charges. “When officers take the law into their own hands, they undermine the moral authority of the entire criminal justice system.”
The deputies, Luis Santamaria and Paul Wieber, are 14- and three-year veterans of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, respectively, officials said. They are charged with assault under the color of authority, battery with serious bodily injury and assault with a deadly weapon. They’re expected to surrender by Wednesday and be held in lieu of $140,000 bail….Read the Rest...
Drunk folks do stupid stuff, as any Cop should be well aware of. This Cop’s reaction to an already restrained woman is ridiculous. Indeed the Department should fire all present for letting this go on.
In the video, 31-year-old Mayra Martinez can be seen being punched repeatedly by Akinyemi Borisade as she was being booked into Duval County Jail on charges of trespassing and resisting arrest.
According to police, Martinez was taken into custody after she became drunk and belligerent after she quit her job at a local bar on the first day. The police report states that she battled with officers when being placed in the police cruiser.
In surveillance video taken at the jail, Borisade can be seen placing a handcuffed Martinez against a wall where she she lashed out with her foot twice, attempting to kick the officer. As three fellow officers and another handcuffed suspect stood by, Borisade is seen repeatedly punching the defenseless woman who fell to the ground after the assault as the officers ignored her.
According to Undersheriff Pat Ivey, jail employees brought the video to their superiors leading to Borisade to be fired with prosecutors filing assault charges against him.
“He could have turned her around and held her in a transporting position that they are trained in back over to the location to wait by the door,” Ivey said in a statement. “He could have stood there with her, but there was no need to strike her.”
This off-duty Atlanta Cop walks up and attacks a man leaving a Walmart, then charges him with resisting arrest for a crime the man did not do.
Cop not only need to lose his badge, but spend a year or two in jail.
An Atlanta man is suing a local police officer for attacking him over a tomato inside a local Walmart, WSB-TV reported.
“As he’s grabbing me, he’s beating me at the same time, [saying] ‘Get on the ground,’” Tyrone Carnegay said of his encounter with Officer Trevor King. “Beating me at the same time.”
Security footage of the October 2014 encounter shows King approach Carnegay as he is walking out of the store. A manager accused Carnegay of stealing the tomato from the store. King quickly takes his baton out and begins hitting Carnegay, who does not retaliate. King continues to hit Carnegay after he goes to the ground. King, who was off-duty but providing security for the store, later found Carnegay’s receipt for the tomato after reaching inside his pocket.
“The officer went into Robocop mode and beat the crap out of him,” said Carnegay’s attorney, Craig Jones.
Carnegay suffered two broken bones in his leg as well as a ruptured artery from the encounter, which required him to be hospitalized and have a titanium rod implanted in his leg. He also said he was handcuffed while in the hospital, though, because King “said I assaulted him and obstructed him from doing his job.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Carnegay was jailed for three days after being charged with misdemeanor charges of simple battery against police and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers. The charges were later dropped.
This one is bad from beginning to end… I hope her lawsuit breaks the bank.
A Rehoboth Beach couple – the wife a quadriplegic with cerebral palsy, the husband a disabled veteran taking medication for schizophrenia – say Delaware State Police officers beat and used a stun gun on the husband after finding him giving his wife a sponge bath when the family home they were in was raided in a search for drugs in June 2014.
The couple, Ruther and Lisa Hayes, allege in a federal lawsuit that police commanders failed to train officers in the “constitutional bounds and limits concerning the use of force,” especially when it came to interactions with disabled people.
Their two nephews were the targets of the raid and were arrested at the home, but police charged only one of them with drug crimes. He eventually pleaded guilty to a single charge: possession of drug paraphernalia.
In the lawsuit’s narrative, members of the DSP’s Special Operations Response Team entered a bedroom to find Lisa Hayes on a bed and Ruther Hayes cleaning her with a sponge bath. Lisa Hayes’s wheelchair was in the room; five other family members in the home had already told officers that Lisa Hayes could not move her legs.
But with weapons pointed at Lisa Hayes, the police officers used profanity and “shouted at her to do that which she could not: stand up,” the lawsuit says.
When Ruther Hayes tried to cover her with a sheet, the lawsuit says, officers pushed him down, punched him repeatedly and hit him twice with a stun gun. After the raid, Ruther Hayes was detained and charged with resisting arrest. The charges were later dropped.
Cerebral palsy makes speaking difficult and means Lisa Hayes relies on a wheelchair. In an interview, she said the raid made her fearful of even entering her mother’s home, where the raid took place.
“I feel not only degraded, humiliated; I feel like they didn’t treat me as a human being,” Hayes said Sunday. “I relive that day when they came in on me and them yelling at me to get up when they knew that I couldn’t get up.”
