WATCH: Woman Sues After Cops Brutally Beat Her for Asking for a Tampon

browardbroward

Broward County, FL — A sizeable chunk of the Free Thought Project archives is devoted solely to a single department in Florida. The Broward Sheriff’s Office is notorious for its rapists, child molesting stalkers, sadistic dog siccing torturers, woman battering deputies, cops who hide while children are killed, and the list goes on. Many of these cops are never fired, and, even if they are, they are likely all given paid vacations first — some of them for months, or longer.

While the cops are rarely fired or disciplined, the taxpayers are often held to the fire to pay for the brutal and corrupt actions of their police force. The case of Audra West illustrates this perfectly.

As we previously reported, Audra West is a hairdresser from Texas who was on vacation in Fort Lauderdale, when she was arrested and assaulted by police. West had a few too many drinks and was arrested for disorderly conduct. During her stay in the Broward Sheriff’s Jail in Pompano Beach, she was brutally beaten by Deputy Kristen Connelly.

When West asked one of the deputies on staff if she could have a tampon, Deputy Connelly laughed at her and told her no. Frustrated, West cursed under her breath at Connelly, so Connelly stood up, grabbed a pair of rubber gloves and began walking toward her future victim.

As she walked over to assault West, Connelly’s coworker attempts to calm her down, but Connelly was apparently out for blood and went around him.

She grabbed West by her hair, entirely unprovoked and began hitting her, and throwing her to the ground. West was then pulled into another room, off camera, and assaulted by multiple guards who joined in on the attack.

“I was on the floor on my stomach and (Connelly) punched me on this side of the face. And I was being kicked and stepped on from behind, and she was punching me in the face. She punched me in the eye several times,” West said.

“I went into jail with no bruises and I came out covered in bruises, I’ve got bruises all over my body. My face was swollen. My eye was basically swollen shut. I had bruises and cuts all over me,” West said.

This entire attack was captured on video.

The case garnered wide spread attention after the release of the video a year later. After a months-long paid vacation, last year, Connelly was quietly found guilty but received no jail time. Now, West is suing Broward Sheriff Scott Israel and five other deputies for excessive force and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

“Audra is looking to be compensated for the brutality that was perpetrated by the sheriff’s office deputies,” says her attorney, Gary Kollin, who filed the case earlier this month in federal court, according to the Miami New-Times. “Any time she thinks about this, which she can’t avoid because of what happened to her, she gets sad. She gets depressed.”

According to the complaint, which lays out the details of West’s abuse in the jail, she was arrested wearing only a bathing suit and a skirt. She was then forced to strip naked and given an inmate uniform but no undergarments.

West was then brutally beaten after asking for a tampon and was then taken to a nurse before being thrown in a segregation cell. West was placed in an immobilizing “restriction suit” and given only two sanitary pads before she was able to bail out two days later.

Four days after she was released, West filed an official complaint with the BSO’s internal affairs division. However, according to the lawsuit, deputies didn’t complete a use-of-force report until after the agency lodged an investigation. Despite the agency’s failure to follow its own policy, BSO exonerated the officers, according to the Times.

WATCH: Unarmed Man Brutally Beaten by Detroit Police


April 20, 2015

DETROIT, MI — Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy on Monday charged ex-Inkster Police Officer William Melendez with two felonies for his involvement in the violent Jan. 28 arrest of 57-year-old Floyd Dent.

Worthy also dismissed an open felony cocaine possession charge against Dent, stating, It was “in the best interest of justice.” She declined to elaborate on whether she believes Melendez planted the drugs, as Dent and his attorney, Gregory Rohl, insist.

The Inkster Police Department fired Melendez last week.

A separate police brutality investigation of Highland Park Police Sgt. Ronald Dupuis and Grosse Pointe Park Sgt. James Volger yielded no charges.

“We cannot turn our heads when a law enforcer becomes the law breaker,” Worthy said. “At the same time, this office will not press a charge against and officer — or anyone else for that matter — if it can’t be proven in the court of law under the appropriate evidence and no matter what is being said in the court of public opinion.”

Worthy said both investigations have concluded and did not provide arrest or arraignment information on Melendez. He’s charged with misconduct in office/mistreatment of a prisoner, punishable by up to five years in prison; and assault with intent to do great bodily harm, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Both investigations were prompted by videotaped arrests and involve officers with checkered pasts.

Jackson, 51, was beaten by Dupuis, who’s worked for three other departments and faced prior allegations that he shot his partner with a Taser, arrested a man without cause and choked a woman in jail.

Melendez, who worked for the Inkster Police Department until being fired Thursday, earned a reputation as an aggressive cop and the nickname “Robocop” while previously working for the Detroit Police Department.

Melendez has been named in a numerous civil lawsuits filed by plaintiffs claiming he violated their civil rights.

Jackson, a parolee with at least 16 aliases and a tattoo of a machine gun on his left bicep, has a criminal history that traces back more than two decades. He has since been charged with 11 felonies, including armed robbery and carjacking, in connection with his Jan. 12 arrest.

Police say Jackson carjacked a woman and her two grandchildren at gunpoint. He was arrested by a multi-agency auto theft task force based in Grosse Pointe Park and is set to go on trial June 15.

A resident caught Jackson’s arrest on video with her cell phone. It’s since garnered over 1.3 million views.

The video shows Dupuis straddling the back of Jackson, who is face-down. Dupuis punches the man several times in the head while his partner adds a couple kicks before Jackson is handcuffed.

Jackson can be heard muttering something.

“What’d you say?,” the officer who kicked him says while kneeling in the center of Jackson’s back. “Jesus? You’re calling Jesus?

“You (expletive)! Don’t you dare; don’t you (expletive) dare.”

Worthy says Jackson “refused to cooperate through his lawyer with this investigation.”

“It is clear he was a felon attempting to flee, and when apprehended was armed with a weapon while he … resisted the attempts to arrest and refused to surrender his right hand for cuffing,” Worthy said. “Sgt. Dupuis does appear to have minor contact with Mr. Jackson once this arrest is complete.

And although the contact is improper … it does not support a criminal charge.”

Worthy suggests the department punish Dupuis internally.

She says Volger struck Jackson in the thigh “with a recognized and accepted technique.”

In the case of Dent, he and and his attorneys claim, after being punched in the head 16 times by Melendez, and kicked and shot with a Taser three times by another officer, police planted cocaine.

Dent was originally charged with possessing crack cocaine, driving on a suspended license and resisting and assaulting a police officer.

Melendez remains employed as a part-time police officer with the Highland Park Police Department.

State police investigated both arrests and forwarded their findings to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

Cops Brutally Attacked Woman One Week After She Testified Against an Officer – Lawsuit

lawsuitlawsuit

Fort Lauderdale, FL – In a newly filed lawsuit, a woman is alleging that she was targeted and physically attacked by a local police officer just days after she testified against one of the officer’s colleagues in court.

Police initially received an anonymous call about a suspect who left a restaurant without paying her bill of $63.57. Officers arrived and arrested Jessica Mooney, 24, on charges of petty theft and child endangerment.

However, the Miami New Times reported that Mooney had a copy of the receipt showing that she had paid the bill and the evidence is now included in her lawsuit against the department.

After Mooney was taken to the station, she began questioning officers as to why she was arrested and accusing them of making a false arrest. She eventually asked Sheriff’s Deputy Amanda Moreno for her name and badge number, and multiple officers responded by grabbing her, throwing her to the ground, and then kicking and punching her several times.

While the officers claimed that Mooney yelled obscenities at them and attempted to hit Moreno, criminal defense attorney Scott Hecker argued that after watching the surveillance footage, it is clear that Mooney did not attempt to hit Moreno, and the multiple deputies who took Mooney to the ground and piled on top of her, used excessive force.

The incident left Mooney with a swollen and bruised face, a gash over her eye and gruesome bruises all over her arms, legs, and torso. She was then forced to spend two days in the Broward County Jail before she was taken to Broward Health Medical Center’s emergency room for treatment for the injuries she received as a result of the beating.

Unsurprisingly, the department reviewed the surveillance and determined that none of its officers were at fault. While the investigation is now closed, which should result in the surveillance video being released as public record, Local 10 News reported that the State Attorney’s Office is refusing to release the video by citing “a recent legal decision from Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office that basically opines that government surveillance video footage isn’t public record because its release could compromise government security systems.”

The charges against Mooney were dropped after it was determined that she did, in fact, pay her bill at the restaurant. However, the timing of the anonymous phone call alleging a false crime committed by Mooney is notable because it happened just eight days after she testified against an officer from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department in court.

Mooney said she was waiting at a bus terminal with her fiancé when they witnessed a police officer aggressively confronting a homeless man, and her fiancé began filming the encounter. Bruce LaClare was attempting to enter the terminal’s restroom when he was accosted by Officer Victor Ramirez.

Ramirez can be seen grabbing LaClare’s arm, and when LaClare tried to shake him off, the officer shoved the homeless man to the ground, and after exchanging words, Ramirez slapped LaClare across the face. However, Ramirez conveniently did not include that detail in his arrest report. The video went viral and resulted in protests in Fort Lauderdale.

However, despite the evidence and the fact that Ramirez’s record included nearly 40 incidents, a majority of which involve physical use of force, as well as a few Taser incidents,” according to a report from the Broward-Palm Beach New Times, Ramirez was found “not guilty.”

Jessica Mooney said she chose to testify against Ramirez because she believed it was the right thing to do. No matter the amount of money she receives in damages if her lawsuit is successful, she still has to live with the physical injuries she received from her encounter with Moreno, along with the knowledge that she has encountered multiple police officers who have used excessive force and faced no accountability for their actions.

Sick society: Israeli soldiers brutally assault wounded man, leave him to die

israeli soldiers

    

On the night of 22 February 2018, at approximately 1:00 A.M., about twenty Israeli soldiers entered the city center of Jericho in the West Bank. According to the military, they were on a mission to carry out arrests in the city. Some fifteen minutes later, several soldiers entered a home and searched it, while others waited at the entrance to the alley where the house was located. The soldiers’ presence led to clashes in which Palestinians threw stones at the soldiers. At some point, Yassin a-Saradih (35) ran with an iron bar attached to a car wheel rim towards the soldiers who were standing at the entrance to the alley, in an attempt to attack them.

In video footage captured by security cameras of nearby stores, a-Saradih is seen running towards the soldiers with the bar. A soldier then shoots him in the lower body at point blank range. After the shooting, three other soldiers emerge from the alley and all four forcefully kick a-Saradih, who is lying on the ground. The soldiers are seen beating him with their rifles and dragging him into the alley. There, they continue to drag him along face down and then lean over him, shine flashlights on him, kick him lightly and move him with their feet. After about ten minutes, during which time they offer the wounded man no medical assistance, one of the soldiers fires a tear-gas cannister at the entrance to the alley. The soldiers are then seen dragging a-Saradih into the alley, out of the cameras’ range, apparently to avoid the tear gas that drifted their way.

About fifteen minutes later, the soldiers are seen again outside the alley, this time carrying a-Saradih by his arms and legs. They hoist him onto a military jeep that drives up and he is driven away.’

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit changed its version of the event several times. In its first response, the unit stated that a-Saradih had attacked the soldiers, armed with a knife, and had attempted to grab their weapons, and that during his arrest he had sustained an injury and received first aid. In a second announcement issued later that day, the unit stated only that he had tried to attack the force, which “responded with gunfire, confronted the terrorist from close range and managed to stop him”, and that a knife had later been found on a-Saradih’s body. The next day, the military claimed that he had apparently died from tear gas inhalation.

Yasin a-Saradih

    

According to the autopsy results published that day by the media, a-Saradih was shot with live ammunition in the abdomen and may have died of blood loss. Nevertheless, the military continued to claim that the paramedics who treated him saw no sign of bullet entry.

This is a particularly grave incident: The soldiers forcefully kicked a severely wounded man lying on the ground and beat him with their rifles in the head, upper body and groin. Then they dragged him along an alleyway as though he were not a human being and did not offer him crucial medical aid for more than thirty minutes.

In light of this unacceptable conduct, the attempts made by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit to justify the incident with one excuse or another are equally disturbing – as is the resounding silence of military and civilian officials. The absence of a firm, unequivocal statement by the military that such conduct will not be tolerated effectively condones the soldiers’ actions, allowing such incidents to recur in the future. The announcement that a Military Police investigation has been launched, as reported by the media, is meant merely to create the illusion that the military is treating the incident with all seriousness. Based on years of experience, the investigation is unlikely to result in any indictment of the persons responsible for the killing and ill-treatment of a-Saradih – certainly not among the higher ranks.

Clip 1. Soldiers enter Jericho marketplace. At minute 53 a-Saradih charges them with a heavy steel frame. He is shot and then beaten, and dragged into the alleyway.

Clip 2. Alleyway camera shows soldiers dragging a-Saradih into the alley and leaving him, notwithstanding his serious injuries.

Clip 3. Soldiers drag a-Saradih through the alley back out to the waiting Jeep, minutes later.

Clip 4. Soldiers drag a-Saradih back out of alleyway, and Jeep arrives, he is placed in Jeep, which drives off.

Home » Crimes, Eurabia, Europe, Multiculturalism, North America » 3 migrants brutally torture Swedish psychiatric patient for “insulting” them



 


“Are you Allah, let’s see what we can do with you”, one of the migrant men said.

A Swedish patient, suffering from mental health issues, has been brutally tortured, Friatider reports.

The victim was sitting outdoors when three young migrants passed. When the man called to them they became angry and one of them showed a gun. The patient was told he could fire it at a remote location, in Långholmen, Stockholm and was tricked to come with the migrants.

When arriving at the location, the man suffering from mental health issues, was subjected to brutal torture. He had to remove his clothes and had to swim to the other side of an ice cold river. “Are you Allah, let’s see what we can do with you”, one of the migrant men said.

The migrants wouldn’t let the victim out of the ice cold water. Later the man was kicked in the head, beaten with sticks and at the end of one of the beatings a stick was pushed up his rectum.

Police Release Body Cam, Showing Officers Brutally Assault 84yo Grandmother

grandmothergrandmother

Mesa, AZ — An Arizona family has learned the hard way what calling the police to help a relative can often look like as their grandmother was hospitalized after a welfare check. Showing their incompetence, the welfare check was for another family member but the police assaulted the innocent grandmother anyway.

The Free Thought Project reported on the incident when it happened last week and this week, body camera footage was released.

Although they released the video, the Mesa police department deliberately blurred the entire clip. However, even low resolution can’t hide the sadistic act of abusing an innocent grandmother.

As we previously reported, Ashlee Hahn detailed the assault in a dramatic Facebook post which showed the extent of her grandmother’s injuries. Hahn’s grandmother was hurt so bad during the check that she had to be hospitalized.

According to Hahn, her grandmother “is recovering from her fourth stroke and is confused, cognitively impaired & barely physically able to stand on her own because of uncontrollable shaking.”

Hahn’s mother had called in a welfare check for her son who lives on his grandmother’s property. She told police her son was suicidal. Police were even given specific instructions not to disturb the 84-year-old because she is easily confused and fragile.

“The police were called to her residence for a wellness check for a close family member who lives on her property,” explained Hahn. “They were specifically asked not to bother or question my grandmother because of her present and very fragile state.”

In spite of telling them to steer clear, however, police did the exact opposite.

“They forced her out of her home into the street, holding her arms tight enough to leave bruises and bleeding,” wrote Hahn. “Her inability to hold still (because of her previous strokes, as seen in uploaded videos) inclined them to slam her down, head first on the asphalt. They handcuffed her after she woke from her unconscious state.”

Indeed, the video shows this exact scenario. Officers forced the woman from her home by repeatedly telling her to come toward them. When she gets by them, she was clearly confused and had no idea what was going on.

Illustrating just how out of it she was, she starts referencing officers being behind the cars like a movie. As she turned around, the officers grabbed her and then surrounded her.

“You are not following my directions,” says a cop to the severely frail innocent elderly woman. Moments later, the innocent grandmother is slammed to the ground as cops jump on top of her and put her in handcuffs.

When Hahn’s grandmother woke up, she was in the hospital, bloodied and bruised. Police then immediately began conducting damage control.

“After seeing the damage they had done & sending my Grandmother off in an ambulance, they called my Mother (who made the original wellness check call) and told her that my Grandmother “slipped,” Hahn explained.

To try and alleviate their liability, an officer was sent, not to check on an elderly grandmother who’d just been the subject of a savage attack, but, instead, to defend their fellow cop and his choice to inflict harm on an innocent old lady.

“The officer who came down to the hospital only seemed to care about deflecting & defending the officers involved. No accountability. No apologies,” Hahn wrote.

What’s more, to try to legitimize the attack on an innocent grandmother, police then charged her with obstruction.

Hahn filmed part of the interaction with the officer in the hospital as he defended his fellow cop’s decision to needlessly confront her (against the family’s wishes) and then violently throw her to the ground.

“Why did he put me down on the asphalt?” asked the innocent elderly woman.

“It is my understanding when I spoke to the officer, that you pulled away from him a little bit and he took action like that, okay?” the officer callously explains of how his fellow officer could somehow rationalize assaulting an innocent grandmother.

Pulling away from an officer “a little bit” in the land of the free will now apparently result in innocent elderly women being thrown to the ground.

“I said don’t treat me like this. I don’t want to have a stroke,” the innocent grandmother says as she shakes in her hospital bed. “I don’t want to have a heart attack. Don’t treat me this way.”

According to Hahn, her grandmother is “traumatized & feels untrusting of the people who she thought would protect her.”

Hahn has a message for the Mesa Police Department as well.

“If this was your grandmother, what would you do? Mesa police department needs to be held accountable.”

Indeed, they do.

In response to the incident, to Mesa Police chief released a statement reading in part:

This incident was captured by an officer’s Axon body camera and I have subsequently directed an internal investigation. Please know that I understand why this situation was alarming. It’s critically important that our department symbolizes trust and faith, and that our residents know officers will do our very best, no matter the circumstances. We all have a mother and a grandmother who we love very much; their safety and well-being are always a priority.

We have been in contact with the grandmother and her family. In addition, I will personally meet with professionals in our community who specialize in senior care to better understand their unique needs and how we can enhance our training protocols. We are a continually learning organization and this will give us an opportunity to reassess our practices and make any changes necessary to improve the quality of service.

Surveillance Video Catches Cops Brutally Attack Innocent Elderly Man & Then Lie to Arrest Him

elderlyelderly

Long Island, NY — An innocent elderly man was yanked from his front porch, thrown down stairs, and then brutally attacked by those who claim to protect and serve. Then, after he was permanently injured, police charged him with a crime.

Robert Besedin, the 72-year-old Air Force veteran has since filed a federal lawsuit against police after he said two officers “pushed him, grab him by his neck, hurled him down four steps and body slammed him to the ground.”

The force with which the officers attacked Besedin was so brutal that it knocked his hearing aids from his ears.

After the officers savagely attacked the innocent elderly man, he was arrested, brought to jail, locked in a cage for days—unable to hear anything without his hearing aids—and charged with felony assault against two Nassau police officers. The only thing is, he never touched them.

The fact that Besedin was innocent was of no concern to the officers who charged him. In their sworn testimony and their written statement, the officers had accused Besedin of resisting arrest, stating that he “violently flailed his arms, kicked, screamed, and pushed Officer Mantovani down four steps” after a confrontation on Besedin’s front porch.

Luckily for Besedin, however, he had a surveillance camera on his front porch which captured the incident on video and proved the cops were lying thugs.

While in jail, Besedin told police that there was video of the incident but they never cared to look at it. The charges were held over this innocent man’s head for a year because the cops lied and the “investigators” couldn’t have cared less about video evidence exonerating Besedin. It was not until this week that all charges were dropped against Besedin, in spite of the original attack happening a year ago.

“These officers lied,”  Frederick Brewington, Besedin’s lawyer said. “And there’s no question they lied.”

Officers Stephen Beckwith and John Mantovani haven’t faced any discipline for their role in beating an innocent elderly man and lying about it in their report either.

According to Brewington, police responded to Besedin’s home that night because his phone “butt dialed” 911 several times.

“There’s a question of how all those calls were made,” Brewington said. “We believe that a good number of them were made accidentally, kind of what we refer to as ‘butt calls.’”

Regardless of what brought police to Besedin’s home that night, attacking an innocent, non-violent man and then lying about it to falsely charge him was a criminal act and the officers need to be held accountable.

Sadly, however, if history is any indicator, only the taxpayers of Long Island will pay for the crimes of Nassau’s finest.

Video footage surfacing days, weeks, or months after a violent incident involving police often disputes their original versions and prove that cops have no problem lying to justify their brutality.

One such incident involved an officer’s dashcam. In 2013, Officer Adam Lin spotted 19-year-old Dontrell Stephens in a “high-crime area” — the man’s own low-income neighborhood — riding a bicycle in a manner the deputy found suspicious.

Lin stopped the youth, who dismounted the bike with a cell phone in his hand and slowly approached the officer. Just outside the range of dash cam video, the officer shot Stephens four times — claiming he was in fear for his life — but footage and evidence clearly showed the claim to be baseless.

Three of the bullets remain lodged in Stephens’ body, according to the Sun Sentinel — two in his arm and one in his spine, which left him paralyzed and dependent on a wheelchair for mobility.

Stephens won a massive $22.4 million settlement. U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Seltzer, last year, however, set a precedent, and instead of the taxpayers being held solely liable, nearly everything this officer owned was seized to pay back Stephens — including everything from his furniture to his clothing.

VIDEO: ‘Shoot the N****r’: Cops Brutally Beat Man then Express ‘Regret’ for NOT Killing Him

euclideuclid

Euclid, OH — Once again, the cops from what is now becoming one of the most infamous departments in the country are in the spotlight. This time, the Euclid police department beat a man so severely that they literally broke his face and he had to be hospitalized. Also, after they arrested him, two officers were caught on the dashcam expressing their disappointment that they didn’t kill him.

Tensions between police and citizens in Euclid, Ohio have come to a head recently after police killed an unarmed 23-year-old man over a marijuana roach and officers were seen on video pulverizing another man over a suspended license, and, as TFTP reported last week, beating the hell out of an innocent man after mistaking his colostomy bag for a weapon.

The most recent black eye on the department stems from the arrest of Erimius Spencer. Because Officer Michael Amiott and Officer Shane Rivera smelled a plant, they claimed the right to kidnap and cage Spencer in December 2016.

According to the police department who has been caught lying on multiple occasions and beating entirely compliant and innocent individuals, Spencer resisted when they found less than one gram of cannabis in his possession. Naturally, they used the claim of resisting to inflict serious harm on Spencer.

As the officers were taking him into custody, they claimed he tried to grab one of their tasers, so they proceeded to smash his face in so hard that it broke his orbital bone.

Because the two officers that arrested him were off-duty at the time, two on-duty cops showed up to bring him in. Their discussion, which was caught on their dashcam is now the center of yet another investigation into this most brutal and apparently racist department.

“What did he have? I know it’s an off-duty thing but he said he was trying to take his Taser; yeah, that would be a damn shame, I guess, if had to shoot the nigger,” the one officer can be heard saying.

“I find what this officer said absolutely shocking, and disgusting,” Spencer’s attorney, Paul Cristallo said. “To me, it sounds like they are expressing regret that they didn’t shoot him and I think this shows a department-wide problem.”

Spencer was arrested that night on multiple charges trumped up by the cops. He was facing charges of drug abuse, resisting arrest, criminal damaging, and theft, but he had done none of those things.

“The theft charge stemmed from Officer Amiott saying that Erimius tried to steal his Taser,” Cristallo said. “He also charged him with criminal damaging because when they were tasering him numerous times part of a piece of plastic broke on the taser — that was one thing, and apparently Officer Amiott said his sunglasses got broken during what was essentially a beat-down on Erimuis.”

Once the case went to court, all charges except for the drug charge were thrown out.

Spencer has since filed a lawsuit against the department alleging that the officers violated his constitutional rights when they beat him to the point of hospitalization over a gram of a plant.

“Spencer’s possession of what was allegedly less than 1 gram of marijuana was the justification for charging him with drug abuse,” the lawsuit states. “It is noteworthy that Ohio law considers the possession of less than a hundred grams of marijuana to be a minor misdemeanor, not punishable by jail or even arrest, with a maximum fine of $150.00.”

Naturally, the Fraternal Order of Police is standing by its officers claiming that Spencer having the plant “precipitated the force used by the officers.”

“It is extremely frustrating to see the city have to spend resources to defend officers who are lawfully performing their duty and fight to protect the tax dollars contributed by the hard working men and women who live and work here,” the FOP statement reads.

To illustrate the laughable support for these officers, Amiott is the cop who was caught on video savagely beating a compliant man during a routine traffic stop. Amiott doesn’t only reserve his anger and violence for adults either, as TFTP reported in August, he was also caught on body camera footage beating a handcuffed child. 

On his application to be a police officer, Amiott said he wanted to be a cop — not because he wanted to help people — but because he enjoyed the “danger/thrill” of law enforcement.

Sadly, because Ohio apparently has no standards when it comes to hiring cops, a trail of blood and rights violations is left in the wake of this sadistic public servant.

As for the racist cops caught on the dashcam regretting the fact that they didn’t get to “shoot the nigger,” their names have not been released and the department claimed they had no knowledge of the footage.

[WATCH] Community Activist Claims Euclid Police Brutally Beat Him During Arrest


EUCLID – A man known for helping those who feel targeted by police, was allegedly the target of police brutality last week.

Damien Parker is known to many people in Euclid as a community activist.

On Friday night, he was placed under arrest as he pulled into his apartment complex.

As police approached his vehicle in an attempt to serve a warrant, Parker refused to get out of his car.

“I get out the car and what? These guys jump on me and shoot me, plant something in my car?” Parker said.

From the beginning of the dash cam video, you can hear tensions escalate before the struggle.

Punches being thrown while Parker was on the ground, but the documentation of the incident is different depending on who you ask.

“When you’ve spent the better part of the last two three months trying to intimidate somebody, harassing somebody and all the sudden expect them to cooperate with you and play nice for the camera, that’s not how it works,” Parker said.

The reason Parker was arrested, was one of the reasons police cited taking caution when approaching him in the first place: threats on Facebook.

He was charged with Aggravated Menacing for allegedly threatening another community activist via social media.

In the report, Euclid police explain that they knew who Parker was because of some of his Facebook videos containing “threats against police.”

“This is the same stuff that they said to the FBI,” Parker said. “The FBI reviewed it and said there were no threats.”

The report also mentioned that because of “his history of possessing firearms, his military training and his failure to comply, it was necessary to protect the public.”
