Michigan Police Abuse Disabled Black Man

Un-freakin-believable! And the usual cover-up by Police authorities…

A disabled black man, with leg braces to be able to stand up, a walker, and a cane, pleads with officers to give him his walker as they drag him brutally to an awaiting police car, and then refuse to unlock his leg braces so he can get in the seat.

‘I can’t get up without my walker’: Black disabled man pleads with officers forcefully arresting him

Police in Battle Creek, Michigan have opened an investigation after a video circulated of a man being brutally arrested on Thursday, Dec. 15, WZZM 13 reports.

The victim of the abuse is 28-year-old Dawan Gordon, a black man described as paraplegic in reporting from the Free Thought Project. Gordon was arrested after a patrol officer tried to stop him. Reportedly, the officer knew that Gordon was driving without a license and had arrest warrants.

Even so, the footage of the arrest show that Gordon’s arrest was not carefully handled; instead, he was forcefully dragged by police, who also did not listen to the man’s pleas to unlock his leg braces.

The officers are heard yelling at the man, who is shouting that he is unable to get up after being dragged from his car.

“You dragged me out of the car bro. Look what you just did to me,” the man shouts. He says, “I can’t get up without my walker.” He pleads with officers to help him, but the officers forcefully drag him to the squad car as he shouts in pain.

According to a press release from the Battle Creek Police, the incident, which shows “inappropriate” treatment of the driver by police, is being investigated.

On Friday afternoon, police Chief Jim Blocker said of the incident, “There was no use of force by the officers. He did have to be lifted and he had to be carried and he was using a cane and walker and he didn’t want to use those and officers had to assist him to a patrol vehicle.”

Blocker added, “Right now we don’t see any policy or procedural violations.” Both of the officers involved in the incident will continue working.

The driver was taken to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo where he received medical services before being released to police custody. Gordon is presently being held at Calhoun County jail where he awaits arraignment.

Canada Rejects Asylum for Kyle Lydell Canty

As reported back in September, Kyle Lydell Canty was trying to make the rather diaphanous case for Political Asylum in Canada based on his purported belief he would be murdered by the Police should he return to America. I have to believe this one was more on the “focus attention onto the issue” rather than any real expectation of being harmed – and insofar as his case has drawn a lot of press, it has been successful in making waves.

The Government of Canada isn’t buying it.

Canada rejects asylum plea from black American saying he wanted to escape police abuse

A Canadian tribunal has rejected a claim for refugee status from an African-American man who said he feared persecution and police abuse in the United States based on his race, the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada said on Friday.

While saying he did find Kyle Lydell Canty to have a genuine fear of returning to his home country, adjudicator Ron Yamauchi said that was not enough to grant asylum.

A string of shootings of black men by U.S. police over the past 18 months have led to widespread protests and the issue has fueled a civil rights movement under the name Black Lives Matter.

“The Act does not protect claimants from every form of ill-treatment, suffering, and hardship,” he wrote in the decision, dated Dec. 3. “It is addressed at situations of persecution, which is serious harm, an interference with a basic human right.”

He added: “There are no substantial grounds to believe that his removal to the United States of America would subject him personally to a danger of torture.”

Canty filed for asylum in September after coming to Canada as a tourist.

It was not immediately possible to ascertain Canty’s whereabouts. He has the right to appeal the decision.

“If I receive a negative decision of my asylum application, I’m already 10 moves ahead as far as my appeal process goes,” Canty wrote in November. “The United States government is always murdering, undermining and underestimating its black citizens – and I have no intention of going back.”

Faux News Attacks BLM With Favorite Tom

Once question…Why do all the Uncle Toms appearing on Faux News look like they are severely constipated? Guy  looks like he has a baseball bat up his rear end!

 

Fox News declares #BlackLivesMatter a “murder movement”

On “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade spoke to Milwaukee County Sheriff and let’s-be-honest-de-facto-Fox News contributor David Clarke about the murder of Texas Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth, which Clarke attributed to the Obama administration’s ongoing “war on police.”

Clarke is no fan of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, having testified before Congress in May of this year that the group was part of a “wrecking ball” effort to “kick white America in the teeth,” but even so, it was surprising that Fox News chose to use a chryon reading “‘Murder’ Movement” when it brought him on to speak about the death of Deputy Goforth.

No connection between the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the suspected gunman, Shannon Miles, has been established, but that didn’t stop Sheriff Clarke from railing against black activists and anyone else who doesn’t offer unadulterated support to members of law enforcement.

“Let me start here,” he said, “the headline is ‘Black man shoots white defenseless police officer.’ I get sick and tired of seeing it the other way around when an officer defends his life. They always point out that it’s a white officer shooting an unarmed black suspect.”

Lest you believe Clarke capable of rising about the cacophony of anti-Obama condemnations emanating from Fox News, by “they” Sheriff Clarke clearly meant a conspiracy that goes all the way to the very top.

“President Obama has breathed life into this ugly movement,” he said, “and it is time now for good law-abiding Americans to rise up like they did around that Chevron station — an outpouring — but it can’t just be symbolic. We now have to counter this slime, this filth coming out of these cop-haters.”

Kilmeade offered that all President Obama did was “shed light” on law enforcement’s problematic relationship with the black community, but Sheriff Clarke would have none of it.

“That’s a lie,” he said. “If there is anything that needs to be straightened out in this country, it is the subculture that has risen out of the underclass in the American ghetto. Fix the ghetto and you’ll see a lesser need for assertive police officers, or policing in these areas, and then you’ll see less confrontation. Stop trying to fix the police. Fix the ghetto.”

First Sheriff David Clark is the only black policeman in a 95% white community in the Milwaukee suburbs – Milwaukee – which is the most segregated city in America.If the Sheriff was really concerned about the black community…Why isn’t he working in East Milwaukee?

Second, and even more important – we don’t know yet why the accused, Shannon Miles killed the officer in Harris County, Texas. The accused’s method would indicate that he specifically targeted this Sheriff for some personal reason. It fits the profile of a straight up revenge killing.

Lastly, the kickback sounds familiar to those who were alive during the CiviL Rights Movement, where the local Segregationist racist Sheriff would always complain about “Outside agitators” and “Civil Rights Troublemakers”…Not sure how this is supposed to help the situation.

Sounds a lot like another Sheriff in another time…
