Second Iraq Vet Seriously Injured By Oakland Police

There has always been a disconnect between the Oakland Police and the rest of the city. In a multicultural, progressive city, the police department remains as the oddity. So the violence in Oakland is a natural outgrowth of the schism between the police and the community.

Occupy Oakland: second Iraq war veteran injured after police clashes

A second Iraq war veteran has suffered serious injuries after clashes between police and Occupy movement protesters in Oakland.

Kayvan Sabehgi, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, is in intensive care with a lacerated spleen. He says he was beaten by police close to the Occupy Oakland camp, but despite suffering agonising pain, did not reach hospital until 18 hours later.

Sabehgi, 32, is the second Iraq war veteran to be hospitalised following involvement in Oakland protests. Another protester, Scott Olsen, suffered a fractured skull on 25 October.

On Wednesday night, police used teargas and non-lethal projectiles to drive back protesters following an attempt by the Occupy supporters to shut down the city of Oakland.

Sabehgi told the Guardian from hospital he was walking alone along 14th Street in central Oakland – away from the main area of clashes – when he was injured.

“There was a group of police in front of me,” he told the Guardian from his hospital bed. “They told me to move, but I was like: ‘Move to where?’ There was nowhere to move.

“Then they lined up in front of me. I was talking to one of them, saying ‘Why are you doing this?’ when one moved forward and hit me in my arm and legs and back with his baton. Then three or four cops tackled me and arrested me.”

Sabeghi, who left the army in 2007 and now part-owns a small bar-restaurant in El Cerrito, about 10 miles north of Oakland, said he was handcuffed and placed in a police van for three hours before being taken to jail. By the time he got there he was in “unbelievable pain”.

He said: “My stomach was really hurting, and it got worse to the point where I couldn’t stand up.

“I was on my hands and knees and crawled over the cell door to call for help.”

A nurse was called and recommended Sabehgi take a suppository, but he said he “didn’t want to take it”.

He was allowed to “crawl” to another cell to use the toilet, but said it was clogged.

“I was vomiting and had diarrhoea,” Sabehgi said. “I just lay there in pain for hours.”

Sabehgi’s bail was posted in the mid-afternoon, but he said he was unable to leave his cell because of the pain. The cell door was closed, and he remained on the floor until 6pm, when an ambulance was called.

He was taken to Highland hospital – the same hospital where Olsen was originally taken after being hit in the head by a projectile apparently fired by police.

Sabehgi was due to undergo surgery on Friday afternoon to repair his spleen, which would involve using a clot or patch to prevent internal bleeding.

The MSM BTW is reporting 10,000 demonstrators. This is raw video footage from a helicopter of the march to the port…

10k? Really? Looks more like 100,000 to me.

How To Turn a $15 Ticket… Into Jail Time

This supposed example of “Police brutality” is flying across the WWW. To be brutally honest this officer would have been well within his rights to light these two up with a taser. As to the woman who got punched in the face – Shoving an officer trying to make an arrest?

There certainly are some cops out there who are out of control… Not sure this is one of them.

Cop Caught Punching a Girl in the Face

Seattle police are investigating two teenagers for allegedly assaulting an officer—even though a much-publicized video has surfaced in which said officer punches one of them, 17-year-old Angel Rosenthal, in the face. The incident, caught on the tape above, happened after officer Ian Walsh stopped Rosenthal and three other women for jaywalking. They were “verbally antagonistic towards the officer,” according to the official report, and one, 19-year-old Marilyn Levias, tried walking away.

Walsh tried to drag her back to the car, and, well, you can watch what happened next in the Komo News video above. Levias and Rosenthal were both arrested. Initially, Seattle police said the officer had acted appropriately, but after the video got widespread local media play, the department said it was not only reviewing the incident, but department training procedures, the Seattle Times reports. Officers are taught punching as an official tactic, one sergeant noted.

Yeah – that overhand right was a little weak…

The Katrina Murders – Part III

Despite what was presented on Faux News that the (black) people in New Orleans were rampaging and looting (when white folks took food from a store it was called “foraging”), it’s turning out that more than little bit of the violence and murders in NOLA in the aftermath of Katrina came from the Police…

5 officers charged in post-Katrina fatal shooting

NEW ORLEANS — Five current or former New Orleans police officers were charged Friday in the shooting death and burning of a New Orleans man during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

According to earlier published reports, police were using a school as a temporary headquarters on Sept. 2, 2005, when a group of men drove up looking for help for 31-year-old Henry Glover, who had been shot.

One of the men reportedly later told investigators that Glover was still in the back seat when a police officer drove off with his car. Glover’s burned remains later were recovered from the charred car when it turned up on a levee near a police station.

Prosecutors would not provide details Friday of what they believe happened. Continue reading

Update on the Cop Who Beat The 15 YO LD Student

On October 8th a lot of folks were stunned at the scene of a Cop, seemingly for no reason – beating up a 15 Year Old kid at a school for LD.

Dolton cop in beating case has troubling history

christopher_lloyd bad copA Dolton cop caught on camera allegedly breaking a 15-year-old special needs student’s nose for failing to tuck in his shirt has a troubling history that includes killing a man in a case of disputed self-defense.

The officer is now in an Indiana jail on an unrelated rape charge.

Christopher Lloyd, 38, was identified today by his father, Charles Lloyd, and Dolton Mayor Ronnie Lewis as the officer who in May was videotaped by a school security camera scuffling with 15-year-old, 140-pound Marshawn Pitts at the Academy for Learning in Dolton.

An attorney hired by Pitts’ parents released the videotape earlier this week, calling the incident an “unprovoked attack” on a vulnerable child. The tape, which has no audio, appears to show the officer slam Pitts against a locker, wrestle him to the ground and pin him.

“My son said, `Sir, you need to tuck your shirt in,’ and this boy said `**** you, I’m not gonna tuck my shirt in, you can’t make me,’” Charles Lloyd said.

“That boy struck my son in the eye and broke his glasses — he had a history of behavior issues,” he alleged.

Christopher Lloyd was arrested last month and charged with sexually assaulting a woman he knew at her home in Hammond, his father said.

According to Lake County, Ind., court documents, he held a pillow over the woman’s face while sexually assaulting her Sept. 14 and had previously threatened her with a knife.

Lloyd, who’s being held in lieu of $110,000 bail, faces up to 20 years behind bars if convicted of rape, criminal deviate conduct, criminal confinement and sexual battery, said Diane Poulton, spokeswoman for Lake County’s prosecutor.

A lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, Nicole McKinney, last summer alleges he gunned down her new husband Cornel McKinney in front of their children outside their home on the 6100 block of South Langley Avenue on Feb. 17, 2008.

A Robbins police officer at the time, Lloyd was suspended following the shooting but eventually found work with Dolton police in January, his father said.

Though an autopsy shows he shot McKinney 24 times, the lawsuit alleges, he was not charged because Chicago police accepted his explanation that he’d acted in self defense.

Chicago police spokesman Veejay Zala said details of the investigation into McKinney’s death could not immediately be found Thursday, but McKinney’s attorney, Rahsaan Gordon, said the latest series of allegations against Lloyd showed he shouldn’t have been employed as a police officer.

“At some point, people in positions of power need to protect the public,” Gordon said. “You have to ask why he was hired.”

How the hell do you shoot somebody in “self defense” 24 times?

I mean – even with the Glock 19 favored by a number of police departments…

You have to stop and reload at least once. What? He shot the guy 19 times, stopped, reloaded with his second clip – shot him 5 more times while he’s laying on the ground…

And finally figured out he’s dead?

The woman who was raped, and the kid who was beaten need to sue the hell out of the Chicago Police for letting this scumbag stay on the street – thin Blue Line be damned.

How many people has this SOB hurt, and then covered it up under his badge?

Cop Beats 15 Year Old LD Student

This one is nuts -

Another case of way too much power being invested in an individual with far too few brains.

Just another day in America’s violent society run amok.

Beatings, Beat Downs, and Just Plain Murder

OK – I’m going to go there, to the playground of black conservative race pimps…

I’m sure this one is STORY ONE, not only on every single black conservative site, every white supremacist site, and good majority of the the bleeding hearts black folks sites…

So why go there?

Simple. More black babies will die in Chicago due to inadequate, unavailable, or poor neo-natal and post natal care in the first year of their lives than are killed by these street thugs.

So where’s the outrage?

The yearly murder rate for young black males was 152 for every 100,000 people (between the ages of 14 and 29) between 1987 and 1989. Hispanic males were slain at the rate of 102 per 100,000, six times the 17 per 100,000 rate of whites that age.

According to a 2006 report from the Chicago Department of Public Health, the infant mortality rate (from birth to 1 year old) in Chicago stood well above the national rate at 9.6 deaths per 1,000. That converts to a figure of 960 per 100,000. When you add in the number of babies who die before they are born – that number doubles.

The next argument you are going to hear from black conservative race pimps is that we are in a “crime wave”. That’s a crock as well.

Black Murder Rates 1976 to 2007

Black Murder Rates 1976 to 2007

According to U.S. Census data, the number of blacks aged 15 to 19 rose by about 15 percent between 2000 and 2007.

So even if any individual black teen’s propensity for crime was unchanged over this time period, the aggregate amount of black-teen crime would have risen by 15 percent. In other words…  just based on changes in population, the number of perpetrators would have been expected to rise from a little over 800 to nearly 1,000. Knowing that, the actual rise to roughly 1,150 doesn’t seem that noteworthy.

The Mortality rate for teens – 15-19 in Wyoming, 85 per 100,000 due to automabile accidents, the majority of which are fouled by DUI is the same as the black murder rate in Chicago for the same age group.

The crack epidemic, fueled by the availability of cheap crack cocaine was a crime epidemic – not what is going on today.

Now, to make the conservative race baiters happy – there is this video -

This thug officer has been fired, and charged with 4th Degree Assault, and is on trial currently…

Just like the black thugs who murdered Darrian Albert.

Real SOB when the system works like it’s supposed to in getting criminals off the streets, or off our Police Forces.

Now, about reopening Devil’s Island…
