NJ Cops Punch and Kick Innocent Burning Man Set Afire By Car Accident

An innocent man, who was forced off the road into a car accident. NJ Police approach, do nothing to put the fire out as the man desperately rolls on the ground trying to put his burning clothes out. Then begin to kick and punch the victim. Meanwhile, the (drunk?) man who caused the accident is a mile away being apprehended after being shot at by NJ Police.

 

Shocking video shows New Jersey cops kicking burning victim of fiery car crash

In a new video of a blazing car accident that left a New York man seriously injured Sunday night, police officers are seen striking and pulling the man — who bystanders claim was a victim in the two-car crash — into the street. Several blocks later on Tonnelle Avenue, the fleeing driver crashed into a utility pole, sparking a fire injuring another driver in a different car.

The cellphone video, acquired by Univision and distributed to The Jersey Journal, shows the 28-year-old man exit a burning car with a portion his body on fire. The video shows him rolling around on the ground in an attempt to extinguish the flames. During this time, more than six officers, some with their guns out, circled the man.

While the police were in pursuit of the car, the driver they were chasing had been part of two separate car accidents. During the initial incident, police fired shots at the driver as he tried to position himself between two lanes of traffic. The driver continued to accelerate, the Hudson County Prosecutors Office told NJ.com.

One officer is seen in the video, kicking the man in the head and neck. Other officers at the scene appear to be stomping on parts of his body.

The man who caused the car crashes, 48-year-old Leo Pinkston, has been charged with aggravated assault and fleeing the accident. Police let off multiple shots at Pinkston, who was a mile away before the crash.

In the video, the first officer goes up and kicks the man, knocking him down. The police officers begin to drag the man off the sidewalk, away from the fire and into the middle of the road.

The victim was hospitalized with severe burns.

City officials said Wednesday that they have major concerns regarding how police conducted themselves during the pursuit in the Greenville section of New Jersey that ended with an innocent man fighting for his life.

Raymond Worrall, Director of Communications for the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office spoke to NJ.com to give an official statement on the matter.

“Our investigators have reviewed the video and we believe with certainty that this man is the bystander from West New York who suffered burns, not Leo Pinkston, the individual pursued by police,” he said. “As I previously said, we will utilize all resources available to the Prosecutor’s Office for a full and thorough investigation as we seek to bring this matter to a rightful conclusion.”

In a statement, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said, “Our investigators have reviewed the video and we believe with certainty that this man is the bystander from West New York who suffered burns, not Leo Pinkston, the individual pursued by police.”

A statement was also issued to NJ.com by a person close to the victim, though the individual asked to remain anonymous. The friend stated that the 28-year-old was driving home from work when he tried to avoid crashing with Pinkston’s fast-moving car.

“[He’s] fighting for his life,” said the friend. “[He] has multiple broken bones and second- and third-degree burns.”

Why BLM Succeeds – Follow the Lawsuit Cost to Cities

The reason Police Accountability is beginning to get real in some municipalities is the cost. Police beatings, shooting, mistreatment of citizens is costing big bucks as a result of lawsuits. Chicago’s tab was over $100 million last year. That’s $100 million taxpayer dollars which didn’t go to improving schools, fixing roads, or improving Government services.

With so many of these cases appearing on video, providing irrefutable evidence of misbehavior by that minority of bad Cops – its no longer possible to deflect the issue by blaming the Lawyers…Or the victims.

Now unless you are a dumb as shit, racist Trumpazoid – you should be able to realize three things –

  1. Either your taxes are going up, or you will get less for the tax money you do pay. If you want to reduce taxes, the best way is to cut unnecessary spending. A lot of Cops do their jobs – and do them well, without beating up handcuffed suspects, shooting the unarmed, and harassing the citizenry.
  2. It’s not only Black Folks and Minorities. White folks get killed too, even though Minorities stand a chance of being on the receiving end of bad policing at several times that of white citizens. The beat-down you save may be your own.
  3. It is making it a hell of a lot harder for good cops to do their jobs. After hitting historical lows in the numbers of Cops killed or injured on the job, being unaccountable may well reverse that trend as citizens see no alternative to violence.

And for the “All Lives Matter/Blue Lives Matter” Bozos…It’s the MONEY, STUPID!

Two Georgia Cops Fired for Attack on Handcuffed Man

Reported this yesterday. A Gwinnett County, Georgia Policeman stomping the face of a suspect, as he lay handcuffed on the ground.

Turns out he wasn’t the only officer to abuse this man.

Kudos to the Police Chief Butch Ayers for reacting to these crime decisively, and not with the cover ups like we have seen in places like Fergeson, Mo. Chief Ayers decision to fire the Officers involved makes a statement, not only to his Officers, but to the community as a whole, that there is no justification for illicit actions.

Second Georgia cop canned after violence caught on video during arrest

Two Georgia police officers were fired Thursday, a day after authorities say one punched a man who had his hands up and the other kicked the man in the head once he was handcuffed on the ground.

The Gwinnett County Police Department said Thursday afternoon that Master Police Officer Robert McDonald violated department policy and the law. Video showed McDonald assaulting the handcuffed man, identified as Demetrius Bryan Hollins, while assisting a supervisor who had called for backup during a traffic stop about 4 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

Several hours later, police said that supervisor, Sgt. Michael Bongiovanni, had also been fired after a second video surfaced of him punching Hollins in the face as Hollins put his hands in the air.

“We acknowledge that the actions of these two officers have implications that will be felt for some time,” a police department statement says. “However, we also believe that our decisive action in terminating both officers speaks volumes about what is expected of each officer that wears a Gwinnett County Police badge.”

“I’m literally sick about it,” County Police Chief Butch Ayers said at a news conference reported by CBS Atlanta affiliate WGCL-TV. “Literally sick.”

The department also has opened criminal investigations into the behavior of the two officers. The results will be turned over to the county district attorney, who will decide whether to prosecute them.

McDonald was hired by the department in August 2013 and graduated from the police academy in March 2014, while Bongiovanni was hired in September 1998 and graduated from the academy in February 1999.

No working number could be found for McDonald, and the voicemail at a number listed for Bongiovanni was full. It wasn’t immediately clear whether either man had an attorney who could comment.

Bongiovanni pulled Hollins over in Lawrenceville, just outside Atlanta, police said.

Video filmed by a witness shows Bongiovanni punching Hollins as Hollins stands with his hands up after getting out of the car, police said.

The other video shows Bongiovanni appearing to yell at a handcuffed man who then lies face-down in a left-turn lane of the busy intersection. McDonald runs up and immediately appears to stomp on the man’s head before both officers eventually pull him to his feet.

Hollins, 21, appears to have blood on his nose and lip in his booking photo.

The shift commander initiated an “immediate investigation” and placed McDonald on administrative leave after Hollins’ arrest.

Hollins was driving a red Acura Integra with no license plate and a brake light that didn’t work, and switched lanes three times without signaling, according to an incident report filed by Bongiovanni.

Hollins yelled and began to “act strange,” and based on that and the officer’s recollection of Hollins’ behavior during a previous arrest in August, Bongiovanni called for backup, the report says.

Hollins yelled and refused to obey orders when Bongiovanni ordered him out of the car and resisted when Bongiovanni tried to arrest him, the report says. There is no mention of Bongiovanni hitting Hollins.

The report mentions McDonald arriving after Bongiovanni had used his stun gun on Hollins and gotten him handcuffed on the ground. It doesn’t mention any contact between McDonald and Hollins.

The two officers are white and Hollins appears to be black, police Cpl. Michele Pihera said in an email.

Jail records show Hollins faces charges of driving with a suspended or revoked license, operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked registration, failure to signal, having a brake light that’s not in good repair, obstructing a law enforcement officer and having less than an ounce of marijuana. He was released on bond Thursday afternoon.

“All I could say is, I wish this never happened to me,” he remarked to reporters, including one from WGCL.

Police released McDonald’s personnel file Thursday, and Bongiovanni’s was to be released.

More Jeff Sessions Policing – Gwinnett County, Ga Police Kick Unresisting, Handcuffed Black Man in Face

Yet another example of Jeff Sessions KKK policing…

BLM Released this video of an unresistant handcuffed suspect on the ground, being kicked in the face by a Cop…

Black Lives Matter release video of police ‘dragging man from his car and kicking him in the face’

Footage has emerged of a police officer appearing to kick a handcuffed black man in the face.

In the video, posted on Facebook by Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, an officer can be seen pulling the man from his car onto the ground.

The officer then handcuffs the man, before another officer appears to run over to the pair and stomp on the man’s face.

The footage was taken in Georgia on a mobile phone.

Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta wrote on Facebook: “We are DEMANDING that Gwinnett County Police Department immediately terminate this officer who viciously kicked a HANDCUFFED BLACK MAN lying on the ground in the middle of the street (off Sugarloaf Parkway) without cause and without merit.

“After brutally kicking him in the face, blood splattered everywhere.”

The group said it would now seek to have criminal charges brought against the officer.

The Gwinnett County police department is yet to comment on the video.

As Expected – Sessions Sides With Murderers and Racists in Police Murders of Citizens

AG Jeff Sessions just ordered the DOJ to “play nice” in investigating evidence of Police criminality. Setting up a system of holding Police Departments to a lower level of accountability than your average criminal. Just another racist POS in the Trump debacle.

What Sessions is protecting is the use of the Police as a method to oppress and to deny Civil Rights to minorities, turning the law enforcement and criminal justice system back into just another tool of the New Jim Crow to prevent minority voting, to assure the school to jail pipeline runs smoothly, and to deny equal rights to minorities sunder the law.

Sessions seeks to protect the murderers of the unarmed, police abuses of power, and the overboard, and to establish the Chumph’s Police State.

Sessions Signals A Rollback On Justice Department’s Police Reform Efforts

Image result for Police State“Since when did protecting civil rights take the back seat to making sure police officers don’t get their feelings hurt?” a former DOJ official says.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered a wide-ranging review of the Justice Department’s efforts to rein in rogue law enforcement agencies, putting the future of police reform in doubt.

In a March 31 “Memorandum Supporting Federal, State, Local and Tribal Law Enforcement” that was released Monday, Sessions set out several principles for the Justice Department’s posture toward local law enforcement. While local agencies should “protect and respect the civil rights of all members of the public,” the memo states, “local control and local accountability are necessary for effective local policing,” and managing non-federal law enforcement agencies “is not the responsibility of the federal government.”

The memo also stresses that the “misdeeds of individual bad actors should not impugn or undermine the legitimate and honorable work that law enforcement officers and agencies perform in keeping American communities safe.” (Sessions indicated in February that he had not read the Justice Department’s reports on Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore but that he believed they were based on anecdotes and not well supported.)

The Sessions memo orders a review of “existing or contemplated consent decrees” to make sure they comply with the goals laid out in the memo.

Even before his confirmation, Sessions had indicated he was skeptical of the Civil Rights Division’s pattern-and-practice investigations, which focus on widespread constitutional abuses rather than individual incidents. The Trump administration more broadly has sought to portray itself as friendly to law enforcement.

In seeking to comply with Session’s memo, Justice Department lawyers sought Monday to delay a hearing on the ongoing case in Baltimore. They requested time as they evaluate whether the consent decree under consideration in Baltimore would “advance the safety and protection of the public, promote officer safety and morale, protect and respect the civil rights of all members of the public, respect local control of law enforcement, are rooted in timely and reliable statistics on crime and criminals, and do not impede recruitment and training of officers,” as laid out in Sessions’ memo.

Image result for Police StateKristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, called the Justice Department’s request to delay the consent decree progress in Baltimore “truly shocking.”

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions is undermining and obstructing extensive efforts that have been made to promote policing reform in a small set of the most broken police departments in our country,” Clarke said in a statement. “In a 163-page report, the Justice Department laid out extensive evidence of unconstitutional policing practices including unlawful stops, searches, and arrests; racial disparities in the rates of stops, searches and arrests; and use of excessive force. The mayor, the community and the police department all support reform, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the obstacle standing in the way. This administration is making clear its intent to delay and obstruct federal civil rights enforcement across our country.”

Sessions’ memo also places a potential consent decree in the city of Chicago in jeopardy. A report on the Chicago Police Department released just before the end of the Obama administration found widespread constitutional abuses that had damaged the relationship between law enforcement and the community in the city, deepening the city’s public safety issues. President Donald Trump frequently brought up Chicago’s violent crime problem on the campaign trail, laying the blame for the city’s issues on former President Barack Obama.

Christy Lopez, who served as deputy chief of the Special Litigation Section of the Civil Rights Division and oversaw DOJ’s Ferguson report, told The Huffington Post that sometimes reform isn’t possible without the Justice Department’s involvement.

“These decrees create the space for innovation and reform that just doesn’t happen otherwise. So much good work has been done, and is being done, because of these decrees. It is terrible to think of all the amazing things that won’t happen in policing if the AG gets his way,” Lopez said.

Lopez, the daughter of a police officer, worked on DOJ police investigations in several cities, including Ferguson. She said she’s concerned that Sessions is “second-guessing and undoing the enforcement decisions of career staff” for “explicitly” political reasons.

“Since when did protecting civil rights take the back seat to making sure police officers don’t get their feelings hurt?” she said. “Good police officers everywhere support the work of the Civil Rights Division. They know this is a giant step backwards for our country.”

Yet Another Bad Cop Beats Unresistant and Unarmed Mental Patient in Vallejo, Ca

Not sure why this dipshit (hopefully soon to be ex-Cop) thought is wiser to manhandle and beat an obviously mentally troubled, non-dangerous man as a first approach…

You ever stop to think about how many times crap like this doesn’t get caught on camera? The Cop is white, and the victim appears to be Hispanic or black.

Cop Filmed Beating Unarmed Man, Pulling Gun And Ordering Crowd ‘The F**k Back’

“The cop … dove on the kid and started whaling on him,” a witness said.

A Vallejo, California, police officer was caught on video repeatedly punching a man with his fists and flashlight before threatening a group of bystanders with his service weapon on Friday.

The officer was responding to a report of a man behaving erratically at a Valero gas station, according to San Francisco’s KRON-TV.

A brief struggle ensues, during which the man can be heard screaming, “I am God, I am God,” as the officer repeatedly strikes him with his fist and a flashlight. In the video clips below, the officer and others can be heard yelling profanities as a crowd gathers to witness the scene.

“The kid surrendered,” one witness told San Francisco’s KPIX 5 News. “The cop, on the other hand, came right up behind him. He immediately dove on the kid and started whaling on him.”

At one point in the video, someone can be heard yelling “Police brutality!” The officer continues beating the man as a second officer arrives on the scene.

Off Duty LA Cop Fires Gun Into Group of Unarmed Teens Walking Home From School

An off duty LA Cop fired his service pistol into a group of teens after escalating an argument over a kid walking over his lawn. There were a lot of opportunities to deescalate this one, and the Cop chose none of them, manhandling an unarmed 13 year old teen as the crowd around him grew. This is one of those neighborhood spats that should have been taken up with the boy’s parents in a neighbor-neighbor discussion.

 

Protests Erupt After Video Shows Off-Duty LAPD Cop Firing A Gun In Dispute With Teen

Police have arrested two teenagers in connection with Tuesday afternoon’s confrontation, but Gaby Hernandez, a spokesperson for a group that organized the protest, told The Huffington Post that activists want the “immediate arrest” of the officer for “child abuse” for the incident.

In the video, the off-duty officer can be heard saying that the boy threatened to shoot him. The teen can be heard denying the officer’s claim. The teenager adds that the officer called another girl an offensive word for walking on his property.

One kid rushes at the off-duty officer and the teen, causing them to fall in a bush. Another teenager tries to punch the man but misses. The officer then appears to pull a gun from his waistband and a single gunshot rings out. Police later arrive on the scene.

The video does not show what led up to the incident, but authorities said it began when a group of kids walked across the officer’s  property on Tuesday at 2:40 p.m., according to an official press release.

Police allege that a 13-year-old boy threatened to shoot the off-duty police officer, “at which time the officer attempted to detain the teen.” Anaheim police confirmed that the off-duty officer fired the gun once, but said no one was struck by gunfire.

Demonstrators assembled Wednesday night in the neighborhood where the footage was filmed condemned the officer’s behavior. Naui Oceloti Hitzilopochtli, a protestor and Orange County resident who lives five miles from the officer’s house, said that the community was upset with the Anaheim police for arresting the teen and not the officer.

“You can tell the people are mad,” Hitzilopochtli told HuffPost.

“If it would have been a [white kid] this would have never happened,” he added. “White kids don’t go through this,” referring to the 13 year old’s arrest. “Only people of Mexican descent or black people.”

Police arrested a 13-year-old boy they believe appeared in the video for criminal threats and battery. They also arrested a 15-year-old for assault and battery, according to an Anaheim police press release issued Tuesday. The off-duty officer was not arrested but is cooperating with the investigation.

A spokesperson for the LAPD told HuffPost on Wednesday that it has launched an administrative investigation into the incident, adding that the off-duty officer is not currently facing any charges. However, he has been placed on administrative duty while the LAPD conducts their investigation, according to NBC4 News.

Evanston Police Violently Arrest Un-resisting Black Man With No Evidence of Crime

Here we go again. More Trumpazoid cops arrest black Phd candidate…For allegedly “stealing” his own car. Before asking him for ID, asking him for the title of the car – or any evidence.

This is wild animal pack behavior.

Cops violently arrest black man suspected of stealing car — that turns out to be his own

Evanston Police released a dash cam video on Wednesday of a 2015 interaction between an officer and a black engineering doctoral candidate accused of stealing his own car.

On October 10, 2015, a woman called the cops on Lawrence Crosby—who was working on his own vehicle—to report that a black man appeared to be breaking into a car and stealing it, Fox Chicago reports.

“Hi somebody’s trying to break into, somebody’s trying to break into a car,” she told the 9-11 dispatcher, later adding, ”I think the person just got into the car.”

Crosby was driving towards the Northwestern University campus when police pulled him over. His car was equipped with its own dash cam video, and on the recording Crosby can be heard telling someone he suspected he was being followed.

Police pulled him over in a church parking lot, where Crosby was violently detained for stealing his own car.

“On the ground, on the ground, down on the ground—down on the ground, turn around,” police said as several officers swarmed Crosby and forced him to the pavement. He was charged with resisting arrest and disobeying an officer.

Evanston Alderman Brian Miller—who’s running for mayor—told Fox Chicago he’s furious with what’s shown on the video, saying it should be a “wakeup call” for the police department.

“I understand being a police officer is a tough job, but we need them to exercise judgment in their day to day operations,” Miller said “And in this situation, within ten seconds of Mr. Crosby getting out of his car with his hands in the air, he was tackled, he was kneed while he was standing up, then he was punched repeatedly by multiple officers, for allegedly stealing his own car. Our police officers need to be better than that.”

A judge threw out the criminal charges against Crosby. He filed civil rights lawsuit against the Evanston Police Department.

This is the police department denial…

New Video of Ft Worth Police Brutality

A new video reveals Forth Worth officer kicked teen age girl while she was laying handcuffed on the ground… The language by a bystander who filmed the events gets pretty rugged – so beware.

 

New video reveals Fort Worth cop kicked black woman’s 15-year-old daughter after handcuffing her

When a white Fort Worth police officer wrestled Jacqueline Craig to the ground and handcuffed her for complaining about a neighbor who allegedly assaulted her son, the video of the incident was 11-minutes long. Today, the full 23-minute was released by Porsha Carver, who initially posted the first video on Facebook.

The extended clip shows what happened after the arrest, when Craig’s 19- and 15-year-old daughters were also arrested by the officer, the Dallas Morning News reports.

The new video doesn’t show anything that isn’t already known about the incident. However, it might provide police with information needed for their internal investigation into the officer’s behavior, the department told KDFW-TV.

The video shows Craig making the initial 911 call to report the incident. While they wait for the officer, the man who allegedly assaulted Craig’s 7-year-old is painting a fence. The dispatcher asks Craig if she had called before and she answers that she has not. She then asks the dispatcher why the officer hasn’t yet arrived.

(READ MORE: ‘I wanted to smack him myself’: Ex-NYPD detective unloads on Texas cop who arrested Jacqueline Craig)

“I want to press charges,” Craig is heard on video saying. “This is a grown man. He grabbed a 7-year-old kid and choked him.”

At approximately seven minutes into the video, another man known to Craig arrives and confronts him. He orders the man to keep his hands off the boy before driving away.

About 12 minutes into the video, the officer arrives and speaks to the man accused of the assault. The officer is then seen wrestling Craig to the ground and arrests one of her daughters. At the 15:30 mark, the officer is seen trying to get one of the daughters into the car and kicks her. He sees Carver filming the incident and takes the phone from her but neglects to turn it off.

At the 20-minute mark, the officer asks Craig’s 15-year-old daughter who was kicking his door. “Was that you?”

“It don’t matter,” she tells him. “You kicked me.”

The officer, seems to confirm that he kicked her by saying, “Yeah.”

“You kicked me on my side,” she says.

“When a police officer tells you to get in the car, you get in the car,” he responds.

“I don’t know how to. I’m 15 years old,” she explains.

The police department is conducting an internal investigation into the incident.

Eastpointe Michigan Cops Beat Restrained Black Man – Lawsuit

This is a bit hard to watch as 5 white cops jump and beat a black man…

Michigan cops strap black man to a chair and beat him until he is blind in one eye

 

A black resident of Eastpointe, Michigan has filed suit against local police after they tied him to a chair and beat him so severely that he permanently lost the vision in one eye.

Detroit’s Fox 2 News said that Frankie Taylor was arrested for driving under the influence on Aug. 10, 2015, but what happened when he arrived at the station was like something from a nightmare — and cameras caught it all.

“If you keep acting like a child, you’re going to get strapped in that chair and you’re going to stay there,” an officer can be heard on tape telling Taylor.

The station’s surveillance cameras caught officers carrying Taylor to a chair and restraining him, then threatening to tase him. Another officer entered the frame, donned a pair of gloves and began to beat Taylor savagely until he lost consciousness.

“Stop resisting,” the officer robotically repeated between blows to Taylor’s face and head. “Stop resisting. Stop resisting.”

Taylor’s screams of pain and terror can be clearly heard on the tape’s audio.

“The guy hit me so many times, it made me cry once I seen the tape,” said Taylor to Fox 2. “I was knocked out.”

Taylor’s attorney James Rasor said that rather than seeking medical treatment for Taylor’s injuries, they transferred him to Macomb County Jail the next day.

Within days he was admitted to Detroit Receiving Hospital for surgery, but it was too late to save his eye.

“He has permanent loss of eyesight in one eye. His vision is severely compromised,” said Rasor. “He has these horrible nightmares.”

Rasor said that unlike white arrestees, Taylor was not allowed to make a phone call.

“You want to protect people from this type of brutality by police forces,” said Rasor. “White folks were allowed to use the phone by police officers; even one who had urinated in his pants was allowed to use the phone. Frankie Taylor wasn’t, and the only difference is that Frankie Taylor happens to be African-American.”

“I don’t feel like that I was a threat to the officers to the point that they had to hit me until I was unconscious,” Taylor said. “I wouldn’t expect this from officers.”

Prince William County…Again. Black Teen Charged With Larceny over $.65 box of Milk at School

Prince William County has a deplorable racial history. It was the site of the longest running school desegregation effort in the country in the 60’s. They actually shut the public school system down for four years, building “Charter” Private Schools for the white kids so they didn’t have to integrate. More recently, they came up with the brilliant idea that illegal aliens shouldn’t be able to buy houses there and demanded to check everyone’s citizenship status. They yanked their real estate market for 6 years behind that one.

Teen Charged With Stealing 65-Cent Milk Carton To Go To Trial

Ryan Turk’s family says the 14-year-old was handcuffed, searched for drugs and suspended from school.

A 14-year-old Virginia boy will face trial after he was charged with stealing a 65-cent milk carton from his school cafeteria ― despite being enrolled in the free-lunch program.

Police arrested and charged Ryan Turk with two misdemeanors of disorderly conduct and petit larceny in May after a school resource officer claimed to have seen him “conceal” the drink at Graham Park Middle School, according to the Prince William County Police Department.

The debacle ended with Turk being handcuffed, suspended and allegedly searched for drugs in the school principal’s office, his mother alleged in an interview with WTVR shortly after his arrest.

The boy’s family has since accused the officer and school of unfairly targeting him because he’s African-American. They declined to handle his arrest non-judicially, police said, leading to a trial date being set for November, The Washington Post reports.

The acting officer, who is with the Prince William County Police Department, reported seeing Turk take the beverage after cutting in his school’s lunch line on May 10, police said.

Turk told WTVR after his arrest that he had forgotten to pick up the drink during his first pass through the line. He put it back and explained himself after being the officer confronted him, the teen added.

When he was ordered to go to the principal’s office, however, things apparently got hostile.

Police said in a statement, which The Huffington Post obtained, that the boy “refused and became disorderly.”

“When the officer attempted to escort him to the office, the student leaned back and pushed against the office,” the statement read. “As they were approaching the principal, the student attempted to push past the officer to get away. The student was subsequently handcuffed and taken to the office without further incident.”

Turk admitted that he did pull away from the officer and told him to get off of him. He said the officer grabbed his neck in response.

The family’s attorney, Emmitt Robinson, argued that it was merely a case of someone not wanting to go along with someone who was being unfair. But he also alleges that Ryan was targeted and accused of stealing because of his race.

The 14-year-old boy was enrolled in his school’s free lunch program, so he was entitled to the milk without paying, his family has said.

“No one needs to be punished for stealing a 65-cent carton of milk,” Robinson told The Washington Post last week. “This officer treats kids like they’re criminals, and guess what happens — they’re going to become criminals.”

The boy’s mother, Shamise Turk, said her son’s ordeal left her “angry” and “frustrated.”

“It just went too far,” she told WTVR. “They are charging him with larceny, which I don’t have no understanding as to why he is being charged with larceny when he was entitled to that milk from the beginning.”

She said that her family’s decision to go to trial is over wanting to set the record straight.

“My son is not going to admit to something he did not do,” she told The Washington Post.

A spokesman for Prince William Public Schools said in a statement Monday that it had no role in how the situation was handled, beyond academic discipline. Local authorities brought the legal charges and police action, he said.

The school suspended Turk because his actions broke its code of conduct, school spokesman Philip B. Kavits wrote.

“As every parent and student knows, principals must look at how a student behaved, and how that behavior affects both the student and others at the school. Following that determination, principals act in the best interest of all concerned,” he added.

Addressing allegations of racism, Kavits  noted that both the school’s principal and the police officer that handled his arrest are African-American.

“These individuals are well known in our highly diverse community for their dedication and caring approach to ALL students,” he wrote.

Requests for comment from Robinson and Shamise Turk were not immediately returned.

North Carolina Man Beaten and Arrested… For Sitting on His Mother’s Porch

Greensboro North Carolina. Body  cam video of a man sitting peacefully on his Mother’s front porch waiting for her to arrive being harassed and beaten by white cops.

 

‘Brutal’ video shows white officer violently arresting black man sitting on his mother’s porch

Dejuan Yourse was outside his mother’s house, sitting on the front porch in Greensboro, N.C., when two police officers arrived.

They’d received a report about a possible burglary and a man with a shovel trying to open a house’s garage. When they saw Yourse on the porch, they asked what he was doing and why he was there.

Yourse explained that he didn’t have a key to his mother’s house and he was waiting for her to get home. When one of them seemed suspicious, Yourse tried to get the officer on the phone with his mother, but the call rolled to voicemail. He also told him to talk to neighbors to verify his identity.

The confrontation between Yourse, who is black, and the white officer, Travis Cole — captured in body cameras — started out as a cordial conversation, but it escalated after only a few minutes. The June incident resulted in an internal affairs investigation by the Greensboro Police Department, which found that Cole used excessive force on Yourse and violated other agency rules when he punched and violently arrested the 36-year-old man, who had not committed a crime.

Last August, two months after the incident, Cole resigned. The other officer involved in the incident, Officer C.N. Jackson, left her post last week, according to media reports.

The body-camera footage, which has since been made public, showed Cole asking Yourse questions about where he lives, why he was sitting outside, whether he has any warrants against him and why he has prison tattoos. Yourse, who started to become agitated, admitted that he’d been in prison before. As the two talked, Jackson went to her patrol car to verify Yourse’s identity.

At one point, Cole took Yourse’s phone from his hand as he was talking to someone. Moments later, Cole punched Yourse in the face.

“You can’t do that! What are you doing?!” Yourse said “You didn’t have to punch me in my eye!”

“Yes I did!” Cole responded.

Cole then forced Yourse to the ground, as the latter kept screaming: “I’m not resisting! I’m not resisting! I am not resisting!”

“You are resisting the whole time!” Cole said.

At that point, Yourse appeared to be either sitting down or on his knees as Cole held his arms behind his back.

“Why are you doing this to me? I’m trying to cooperate, man! You can’t do that when I’m not resisting you!” Yourse said, as he sat on the ground…. More Here

NFL Player Flag Protest Grows

Week by week, the number is growing…

These Athletes Have Joined Colin Kaepernick in Protesting Racial Inequality and Police Brutality

“I’m not against the police. I’m not against the military. I’m not against America. I’m against social injustice.”

  • Brandon Marshall, Denver Broncos (NFL): When Marshall knelt before last Thursday’s matchup against the Carolina Panthers, he said he was prepared for the backlash that might ensue. And it came for his wallet: The Air Academy Federal Credit Union and CenturyLink broke off partnerships with Marshall over the act. Despite this, Marshall says he plans to continue protesting. “I’m not against the police. I’m not against the military. I’m not against America. I’m against social injustice,” Marshall told MMQB on Friday.
  • Jeremy Lane, Seattle Seahawks (NFL): Lane sat on the bench during the national anthem before a preseason game against the Oakland Raiders on September 1. (On Sunday, his teammates joined him, standing and linking arms together. The team’s “demonstration of unity” didn’t exactly go as far as it could have, though, as Jezebel notes.)
  • Eric Reid, San Francisco 49ers (NFL): A week after his teammate first opened the door to demonstrations, Reid joined Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem on the San Diego Chargers’ “Salute to the Military” night. It came after the two met with free-agent long snapper and former Army Green Beret Nate Boyer, who recently wrote an open letter in the Army Times about the demonstrations.
  • Marcus Peters, Kansas City Chiefs (NFL): Before Sunday’s game against San Diego, Peters stood arm in arm with teammates in a sign of solidarity with Kaepernick. He took it one step further, raising his black-gloved right hand in the air during the anthem. “I come from a majority black community from Oakland, California…so the struggle, I seen it,” he told the Associated Press after the Chiefs’ win.
  • Arian Foster, Miami Dolphins (NFL): Foster knelt beside three teammates along the sideline before Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. “That’s the beautiful thing about this country,” Foster told reporters afterward. “If somebody feels it’s not good enough, they have that right. That’s all we’re doing, exercising that right.”
  • Kenny Stills, Miami Dolphins (NFL)
  • Michael Thomas, Miami Dolphins (NFL)
  • Jelani Jenkins, Miami Dolphins (NFL)
  • Jurrell Casey, Tennessee Titans (NFL): Casey raised his fist along with two other teammates after the national anthem at Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. “A lot of times, a lot of people don’t want to address the issues, and they want us to sit back and be quiet about it,” Casey told reporters. “And I think to bring fairness and (equality) to all races and everything, I thought it was the right thing to do.”
  • Jason McCourty, Tennessee Titans (NFL)
  • Wesley Woodyard, Tennessee Titans (NFL)
  • Martellus Bennett, New England Patriots (NFL): The Patriots tight end and his teammate waited until the end of the anthem to raise their fists—Bennett wearing a black glove, McCourty a white one.
  • Devin McCourty, New England Patriots (NFL)
  • Robert Quinn, Los Angeles Rams (NFL): The Rams defensive end raised his fists alongside his teammate in Monday’s matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, joining Kaepernick, Reid, and two other 49ers teammates in protest.
  • Kenny Britt, Los Angeles Rams (NFL)
  • Antonie Bethea, San Francisco 49ers (NFL): The 49ers safety bowed his headand raised his fist alongside Harold during the anthem on Monday night. They joined Kaepernick and Reid, who each knelt in protest.
  • Eli Harold, San Francisco 49ers (NFL)
  • Megan Rapinoe, Seattle Reign (National Women’s Soccer League): On September 4, the national team standout knelt during a match against the Chicago Red Stars as a “nod to Kaepernick.” When the Reign played its next game against the Washington Spirit, Spirit team officials decided to preempt the action, playing the anthem before players trotted out to the field. (Before Sunday’s rematch against the Spirit, Rapinoe stood and linked arms with teammates.)
  • Michael Oppong, Doherty High School (Worcester, Massachusetts):Oppong, a high school junior, dropped to a knee during the national anthem on Friday. He claimed on Twitter afterward that his coaches and school officials had suspended him for one game. On Monday, school district superintendent Maureen Binienda told the Worcester Telegram & Gazette that Oppong’s action did not violate any school rules and that he would not be punished.

Though the 49ers acknowledged Kaepernick’s right to decline to participate in the anthem, the quarterback’s actions were met with outcry from former players, pundits, and celebrities alike. The Santa Clara Police Officers Associationthreatened to pull officers from working 49ers games if the protests continued. (The union eventually backed off.) NFL commissioner Roger Gooddell told the Associated Press last week that he didn’t “necessarily agree” with Kaepernick’s actions; he added that while he supported players who wanted “to see change in society,” the league believed “very strongly in patriotism in the NFL.”

“To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way,” Kaepernick told NFL.com on August 27. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” He continued a week later, kneeling alongside his teammate Eric Reid before “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Following his initial demonstration, Kaepernick’s jersey sales soared; he announced recently that the proceeds will go to charity. (Both Kaepernick and the 49ers organization have pledged to each send $1 million to Bay Area charities toward “the cause of improving racial and economic inequality.”) Kaepernick’s protest is expected to continue Monday night, when the 49ers face the Los Angeles Rams.

Why Milwaukee is Burning

If you need a hint why there are riots in Milwaukee, then take a look at this Lawn Jockey. If this buffoon represents in any way the attitudes of the other Chiefs, and street cops in Milwaukee then it is pretty easy to see why things are going to hell in a hand basket there.

Hannity’s favorite Lawn Jockey.

 

Fox’s Sheriff David Clarke: Milwaukee riots caused by single moms and ‘questionable lifestyle choices’

Sheriff David Clarke took time out of restoring law and order in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Monday to blame riots in the city on liberals and “questionable lifestyle choices.”

Just hours after requesting help from the National Guard to deal with riots stemming from an officer-involved shooting, Clarke made several appearances Monday morning on Fox News and Fox Business Network.

“What causes riots are failed liberal urban policies in these ghettos,” Clarke told Fox Business. “Milwaukee has inescapable poverty. We’re like the sixth poorest city in America. They have failing public schools… You have massive black unemployment… You have dysfunctional families, you have father-absent homes, you have questionable lifestyle choices.”

“Those are the ingredients for for a riot,” he insisted. “And then a police shooting comes along and just acts as an igniter to an already volatile situation.”

Clarke pointed to “tribal behavior” as the cause of chaos in the wake of the officer-involved shooting.

“I feel for these individuals,” he explained. “They might be unemployed but they’re good law-abiding people and they need help. But they’re not getting it from this Democrat [SIC] liberal class of politicians who have reigned over this thing for decades.”

“Like I said, the economic state in Milwaukee today wasn’t like this when I was growing up as a kid here,” the sheriff opined. “This happened over time under their watch, pushing the growth of the welfare state.”
