WATCH: Tyrant Cop Knocks Handcuffed Woman Unconscious for No Reason & Lies About It

womanwoman

Coldwater, MI — Last July, Tiffany McNeil would walk into the Branch County Jail in handcuffs only to leave in a stretcher moments later after being brutally assaulted by a police officer and knocked unconscious.

What happened while McNeil, 31, was being processed into jail that fateful day is now the subject of a federal lawsuit alleging that police used excessive force and then lied about what happened. The incident—in which a half dozen cops stood by and watched their brother in blue smash a handcuffed woman’s face into the pavement—was also captured on video.

“It was absolutely egregious, disgusting, thug-like conduct,” McNeil’s attorney, Solomon Radner, said. “You don’t expect that from police officers, and it shouldn’t be tolerated.”

On July 24, police were called to McNeil’s home by her husband during an argument. According to the lawsuit, McNeil had been drinking which sparked the argument.

McNeil was arrested and brought to the Branch County Jail to be processed for the incident. As police bring her into the secured entrance, we can see this disturbing scenario unfold.

The woman-beating cop, identified in the lawsuit as Lewis Eastmead, is seen shoving McNeil’s face into the concrete wall for several minutes. The entire time, McNeil is non-combative and not resisting in the least—not to mention, she’s in handcuffs.

All of the sudden, the officer begins pressing her face into the wall with both hands before pulling her backward and slamming her face-first into the concrete floor. McNeil was knocked out immediately.

During the attack on the restrained woman, five other cops watched as their brother in blue degraded the young woman by shoving her face into the wall and not a single one of them intervened as he slammed her to the floor.

In a most disturbing image, once Eastmead realizes McNeil is knocked unconscious, he rolls his victim over to reveal a puddle of blood on the floor coming from the massive gash in her head.

“I told you to relax,” the officer yells, with his knee now on McNeil’s back as she lay motionless on the ground.

For nearly 15 minutes, police prodded the unconscious woman as she lay entirely unresponsive on the concrete. Finally, EMTs arrive and bring her to the hospital where, according to Radner, McNeil received 17 stitches and was treated for a concussion.

After being treated in the hospital, police charged McNeil with felony resisting a police officer. To justify this charge, police then lied on their report, claiming McNeil was being “combative” and “actively resisting arrest,” according to the lawsuit.

Obviously, McNeil was not being combative as we can clearly see that fact in the video. She was doing nothing wrong when Eastmead attacked her.

Radner explained that police brought the felony charge against her to force her into taking a plea deal for the domestic misdemeanor charge to which she pleaded no contest. The felony resisting charge was then dropped.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Eastmead and about a dozen other officers and police department supervisors, including the officers who witnessed the incident, are listed among the defendants, with some identified by name and others listed as John Doe. McNeil is also suing the city of Coldwater.

Along with the excessive force claim, the lawsuit alleges unreasonable seizure; abuse of process and malicious prosecution; that the other police officers failed to intervene “to prevent the violation of Ms. McNeil’s constitutional rights,” and that city failed to properly screen, train and supervise its police officers. It seeks at least $75,000 in damages.

As for Eastmead, he is still a cop on the Coldwater force.

WATCH: 11-Year-Old Held at Gunpoint and Handcuffed by Police After Stepping Out of House


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Michigan police are investigating after an 11-year-old Michigan girl was held at gunpoint, put in handcuffs and thrown in the back of a police car.

Honestie Hodges was leaving her Grand Rapids home last week to go to the store when the incident happened.

“When my mom was walking past, I was putting my hands through the little bars, banging on the windows, screaming, ‘Please don’t let them take me,’” Honestie said.

Honestie, along with two women who left the home with her, were arrested as police were looking for the girl’s aunt, Carrie Manning, who was suspected of stabbing her little sister at a nearby home. The family is upset because Manning is a 40-year-old white woman and Honestie is an 11-year-old black girl.

Manning was later found and arrested, and the day after the incident, Grand Rapids police opened an internal investigation following a complaint from the family.

Honestie said the arrest has now changed her outlook on law enforcement and on her own future.

“I wanted to be a detective or police officer, but now I don’t want anything to do with those kind of things,” Honestie said.

11yo girl handcuffed, held at gunpoint by Michigan police (VIDEO)

Footage of the incident involving elementary school student Honestie Hodges was captured on a bodycam, and was presented by Grand Rapids Police Department during a press conference Tuesday. The video shows Hodges walking with her hands up until an officer tells her to turn around and walk backward, all while her mother Whitney Hodges yells: “That is my child. She’s 11 years old. It does matter.”

The girl begins to scream wildly when another officer takes out the handcuffs. The officer can be heard saying: “You’re fine, you’re not going to jail or anything.” Hodges is then ordered to stop crying as she is patted down and put in the back of a police cruiser.

The ordeal took place last Wednesday, when Hodges was leaving through the back door of her home to go to the store, local news reported. The police had arrived to look for the girl’s aunt, Carrie Manning, an attempted murder suspect, the department’s statement said.

Manning, a 40-year-old white woman, had allegedly stabbed her sister before fleeing. Police said the officers had to detain the minor and two other women in the house until they could determine they were not the suspect and were unarmed. After searching the house, police did not locate Manning and released the women.

“The 11-year-old was handcuffed for a total of two minutes while she was brought back into the alley and patted down to make sure that she did not have anything dangerous on her,” the agency’s spokeswoman, Cathy Williams, is quoted by AP as saying. Hodges then spent around 10 minutes in the car, she added.

“It made me feel scared and it made me feel like I did something wrong,” the girl told local news. “When my mom was walking past, I was putting my hands through the little bars, banging on the windows, screaming, ‘Please don’t let them take me,’” she added.

Following a complaint on the girl’s behalf, police launched an internal investigation into “inappropriate” treatment, police chief David Rahinsky told reporters Tuesday. “The juvenile is treated the same way you would have treated any adult. And when you’re dealing with an 11-year-old, it’s inappropriate,” WOOD-TV quoted Rahinsky as saying.

“The screams of the 11-year-old, they go to your heart. You hear the mother yelling from the steps, ‘That’s my child!’ That’s our community’s child. That’s someone who lives in Grand Rapids. That’s someone who should feel safe running to an officer,” Rahinsky said, pledging to look “at everything, from our hiring to our training to our supervision.”

“Police officers have to be pretty narrow-minded to believe they have to cuff an 11-year-old black girl to determine that she’s not a 40-year-old white woman. Then you wonder why you’re losing respect,” Facebook user Deborah Bolden commented under the department’s post on the social media page. Another user said it was “cruel, sad, inexcusable.”

Hodges’ detention riled Grand Rapids residents, who demanded local authorities prevent similar incidents from happening in the future, as well as calling on them “to repair relationships between the community and the GRPD.” The city mayor, Rosalynn Bliss, admitted there was “a lot of work to do.”

WATCH: Sadistic Cop Kicks Handcuffed Man’s Face Like a Football for Having Hypothermia

kickkick

Penns Grove, NJ —  Xaviel Ramos, 22, was driving home to South Carolina over the Thanksgiving break to visit his family for the holiday when his two dogs got out of his car. Ramos had no idea that his search for his dogs would end with hypothermia and a police boot to his face. However, as the dashcam footage below shows, that is exactly what happened.

Officer George J. Manganaro, 29, was charged Nov. 28 with aggravated assault after dashcam footage from his police cruiser showed him kick Ramos—who was handcuffed and pantless at the time while seated on the ground—in the head as if he were punting a football.

The incident began when police received a call that Ramos was found attempting to break into a home.

“The guy punched through the window and I guess he was trying to get into our house,” the woman said on the call. “And when he did that my boyfriend grabbed his arm and said ‘oh no buddy you’re not going anywhere.’”

Ramos never tried to fight the couple and he actually stayed there while police made it out to the scene. The woman also told dispatch that Ramos appeared to be very disoriented.

“Something’s wrong with him,” she said. “We think he’s drunk.”

Ramos, however, was not drunk. While he was out looking for his dogs, the man didn’t realize that hypothermia was setting in. By the time he found his way to the couple’s home, he was pantless and clearly delusional.

He was trying to break into the home to get warm. While having hypothermia certainly does not grant anyone the right to break into another family’s home, the treatment he received at the hands of Manganaro was most assuredly not warranted.

As NJ.com reports:

In the one-minute dashcam video obtained by NJ Advance Media this week, the suspect, identified as Xaviel Ramos, 22 of Hopatcong, is seen in handcuffs with an officer holding on to his arm.

 

Ramos begins trying to walk away but is pulled back by the officer and put on the ground. A few seconds later, Ramos appears to attempt to get up when Manganaro, who was standing to his left, is seen kicking him in the head, knocking him down. Manganaro is then seen walking toward the patrol car to pick up the hat he knocked off Ramos’ head.

“He had been out of his car for almost two hours walking through the fields trying to recover his dogs,” Salem County Prosecutor John T. Lenahan said of Ramos. After Ramos was kicked in the head by the sadistic cop, he was then brought to the hospital whose staff determined he was suffering from hypothermia.

For trying to break into the home, Ramos is scheduled to appear in court on January 18. A week later, the cop who kicked him in the head is expected to appear for his aggravated assault charge on Jan. 25.

“Xaviel and the rest of the family put this behind them,” Carlos Ramos, Xaviel’s father, said. “We have nothing to do with what’s going forward. That’s between the prosecutor’s office and whatever is going on.”

After the officer was charged, the Penns Grove police department released the following statement as they suspended their officer.

“The Penns Grove Police Department finds this behavior unacceptable,” Penns Grove Police Chief John Stranahan Sr. said in a statement when the charges were filed. “Our officers must adhere to the core values established by our department policies.”

Sadly, the tyranny loving apologists have taken to the comments on nj.com and social media to declare their love for the officer and point out the ‘injustice’ that is charging him.

“So what!! Keep crying over criminals fools.  Every burglar should get a kick in the head,” one commenter wrote.

“If me or mine are going to break into homes, then GOOD, get a kick in the head!!!” another person wrote.

Sadly, both of these people miss the point entirely. Had the homeowner been the one to kick Ramos in the head in defense of his property, he would’ve been entirely justified.

However, police have a duty to uphold the law—which includes the presumption of innocence—and they have no right to dole out street justice as if they are the judge and jury on handcuffed men.

WATCH: Dashcam Video Shows New Jersey Cop Kicking Handcuffed Suspect in Head


New Jersey – A handcuffed man wearing a jacket and no pants was sitting on the ground outside a home he was allegedly trying to burglarize when a Penns Grove police officer kicked him in the face, according to newly-obtained video of the incident.

Officer George J. Manganaro, 29, was charged Nov. 28 with aggravated assault after the Thanksgiving morning incident in Carneys Point and has been suspended from the force.

In the one-minute dashcam video obtained by NJ Advance Media this week, the suspect, identified as Xaviel Ramos, 22 of Hopatcong, is seen in handcuffs with an officer holding on to his arm.

Ramos begins trying to walk away but is pulled back by the officer and put on the ground. A few seconds later, Ramos appears to attempt to get up when Manganaro, who was standing to his left, is seen kicking him in the head, knocking him down. Manganaro is then seen walking toward the patrol car to pick up the hat he knocked off Ramos’ head.

Police responded to the home on Courses Landing Road on Nov. 23. after a woman at the house called 911 to report that someone had either thrown a brick through their window or punched through it and that her boyfriend was holding on to him until police arrived.

“The guy punched through the window and I guess he was trying to get into our house,” the woman said on the call. “And when he did that my boyfriend grabbed his arm and said ‘oh no buddy you’re not going anywhere.’”

She also added that he appeared to be disoriented.

“Something’s wrong with him,” she said. “We think he’s drunk.”

Salem County Prosecutor John T. Lenahan said Ramos had a minor cut to his face and was taken to Salem Memorial Hospital because he had been out in the cold, not because of the injury to his face. Hospital staff determined he was suffering from hypothermia.

Ramos had been traveling from North Carolina on his way home for Thanksgiving, Lenahan said.

“He had been out of his car for almost two hours walking through the fields trying to recover his dogs,” Lenahan said.

Ramos told the officers he was trying to break in to get warm.

“The Penns Grove Police Department finds this behavior unacceptable,” Penns Grove Police Chief John Stranahan Sr. said in a statement when the charges were filed. “Our officers must adhere to the core values established by our department policies.”

Ramos is scheduled to appear in court for his charges Jan. 18 while Manganaro is expected to appear for his aggravated assault charge Jan. 25.

“Xaviel and the rest of the family put this behind them,” Carlos Ramos, Xaviel’s father, said. “We have nothing to do with what’s going forward. That’s between the prosecutor’s office and whatever is going on.”

A man who was handed the phone at Manganaro’s listed number hung up when a reporter for NJ Advance Media identified himself seeking comment.

On the use of force report filed for this incident, it says Ramos was resisiting police officer control and was under the influence.

In September 2016, Manganaro sued Penns Grove, a community activist, councilwoman and the school district, claiming negligence after he was allegedly injured on duty.

It stemmed from a 2014 incident where Manganaro was responding to a call for reports of underage drinking at a basketball game at the school gym and Walter Hudson, a community activist got involved and resisted arrest by using physical force against Manganaro. A use of force report was also filed in that incident and Manganaro said on the report that he used a compliance hold on Hudson for self-defense, defense of another, to effect an arrest and to restrain for safety.

However, Manganaro claimed in his lawsuit he was permanently injured when Hudson, a school board member at the time, threw him to the ground. Hudson pleaded guilty to aggravated assault against a police officer and was sentenced to probation.

Richmond County Deputy Behind Bars After Beating 12-Year-Old Handcuffed to Basketball Goal


AUGUSTA, Ga.– A Richmond County Deputy is out of a job and behind bars, accused of physically abusing a 12-year-old. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office says Deputy Alton Walker hit a 12-year old boy with a collapsible metal baton. They also say he hit the boy with his hand in the face and chest, all as the child was handcuffed to a basketball goal.

The boy’s mom tells News 12’s Laura Warren she hoped Walker would talk to her son, Brandon, and help get him back on the right track, but instead, he sent him to the hospital.

A hospital bracelet now marks the place where handcuffs squeezed 12 year old Brandon’s wrists. His mom says, “I am in shock. I’m mad, I’m upset, I’m just stunned.”

She says she’s a single mom who was just trying to keep her 12 year old from choosing the wrong path.

“He’s a wonderful kid. He’s very smart in school. Good academics, all around good kid, it’s just that Brandon started hanging out with the wrong crowd so to speak,” she explained.

He has honor roll awards, football trophies, and enough medals to outfit a small army lining shelves in the family’s living room, but despite his success, his mom worried her son was starting down a different path, leading him away from scholar athlete and towards a life of bad choices.

” He had got with the wrong crowd and he started hanging out a little later. I knew the friends he was bringing around weren’t appropriate friends,” she said, so she stepped in.

“As a concerned mom, I refused to let the streets have my baby,” she said.

A friend suggested letting a deputy she knew come over to talk to Brandon, to keep him on the right path.

NYPD Cops Told Handcuffed 18-Year-Old They Were ‘freaks’ Before Sexually Assaulting Her in Van


A pair of NYPD detectives and self-proclaimed “freaks” raped a handcuffed teenager in a police van in Coney Island after threatening to arrest her for having marijuana, Brooklyn prosecutors said Monday.

Demoted detectives Eddie Martins and Richard Hall pleaded not guilty to a 50-count indictment that included charges of first-degree rape, first-degree criminal sexual act, second-degree kidnapping and official misconduct.

The officers say the sex with the 18-year-old was consensual. Martins is free on $250,000 bail while Hall posted $150,000 bail.

Attorneys for both officers attacked the teen’s credibility in court, citing her comments on social media after she reported being raped.

“The alleged victim has motive — financial gain — bragging about making $50 million on social media,” said Hall’s attorney, John Arlia.

The nauseating details of the reported attack on Sept. 15 were revealed in papers released by acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez.

Martins, 37, and Hall, 32, were part of a plainclothes team of detectives from Brooklyn South Narcotics conducting a “buy and bust” operation around Coney Island.

The pair left their post “without authorization” around 7:30 p.m. in an unmarked Dodge Caravan and drove to Calvert Vaux Park in nearby Gravesend.

There, they pulled over an Infiniti Coupe driven by the 18-year-old. Two of her male friends were in the car.

After the teen admitted to having some weed in the car, as well as two anti-anxiety Klonopin pills, the detectives said they were putting her under arrest and giving her a summons.

They told her friends to retrieve her from the 60th Precinct station house in three hours — and not to follow their van, prosecutors said.

After they drove off, Martins allegedly asked the handcuffed teen, “We’re freaks — what do you want to get out of this arrest?”

Two NYPD Cops Charged with First-Degree Rape Despite Claiming Handcuffed Teen Consented to Sex


It took more than a month, but the two New York City police detectives who acknowledged they had sex with a handcuffed teenager inside a police van after detaining her for drugs have been charged with first-degree rape.

A grand jury indicted officers Eddie Martins and Richard Hall on Thursday, despite their claims the sex was consensual, according to the New York Post.

They are expected to turn themselves in next week, which goes to show that Blue Privilege continues to exist even after they have been formally charged.

After all, would your average street rapist be allowed to have a free weekend after being charged with first-degree rape?

The cops, whose photos still have not been released, face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

The victim, who goes by Anna Chambers on social media, was arrested on September 15 for possession of marijuana and prescription pills.

The two cops also found prescription drugs on one of the two male friends she was with, but they had no interest in him, ordering the two friends to leave the area as they took her into custody.

She said she was handcuffed and placed in a van where she was ordered to perform oral sex on both cops. She also said one of the cops raped her.

They then ordered her out of the van and drove off, where one of her male friends found her 45 minutes after they detained her.

He drove her to her mother’s home where they then drove her to the hospital where doctors discovered evidence that she had been sexually assaulted.

The teen, who turned 19 this week, has been very outspoken about the incident on her social media pages. But the cops have been attacking her credibility by saying she has posted provocative photos of herself on her social media pages.

It is Not Illegal For NYPD Cops to Have Sex With Handcuffed Women They Arrest. One Politician is Trying to Change That


A New York City politician is trying to make it illegal for cops to have sex with citizens they arrest, insisting that a citizen in custody is incapable of consenting.

Currently, it is only a violation of departmental policy, which means if a cop rapes a woman in handcuffs, then claims it was consensual, he may end up suspended with pay.

Or at worst, charged with a misdemeanor of official misconduct, which can mean anything and everything.

Councilman Mark Treyger (D-Brooklyn) is drafting the legislation after two NYPD cops were accused of raping a handcuffed 18-year-old woman last month, then claiming it was consensual.

New York City police officers Edward Martins and Richard Hall have been stripped of their badges and guns, but they are still getting paid for working desk duty.

While that might seem like a slap on the wrist, cops tend to view it as prison, according to a 2008 New York Times article.

Some monitor surveillance cameras in housing projects. Others escort prisoners to court or check in patrol cars. And some, true to the police lingo, really do sit behind a desk, shuffling papers and answering phones.

These jobs are known as desk duty, a generic phrase in the Police Department for a range of jobs to which hundreds of officers have been reassigned over the years.

Pulled off the streets, stripped of guns and badges, kept inside four walls and away — as much as possible — from the public, officers who are put on desk duty because their conduct is under investigation find themselves far from the enforcement activities they signed up to do.

“We like to call it the ‘cellblock’ because it is like you are in prison,” said an officer who spent more than 18 months watching surveillance video while authorities investigated an accusation that he had struck a suspect.
Treyger, who represents the district where the woman said she was raped, was outraged to learn there is no law stating there is no consent between a police officer and a person they arrested considering the power dynamics of the interaction, writing the following on Medium.

WATCH: Handcuffed Man Records Cop Breaking the Law From Inside the Patrol Car

textingtexting

Texting while driving recently became illegal in the state of Texas, and it appears as though one sheriff’s deputy is having a hard time breaking the habit—or he thinks he is above the law, and won’t get caught.

A Fayette County deputy who has not been named is now being “disciplined for his actions,” according to a report from CBS Austin, after he was caught breaking the law by a handcuffed man in the backseat of his patrol car.

The suspect, John Glover, was arrested for misdemeanor theft after pawning a stolen item. He was able to record the video with his phone because he was handcuffed with his hands in front of him. The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office is now claiming that the deputy was “being nice” after Glover complained that the handcuffs made his wrist hurt.

The ban on texting while driving in Texas went into effect on Sept. 1. Police officers told Dallas News that they intend to “target people who are on their cellphones reading, writing or sending a text message while driving,” and essentially anyone whose driving is affected by the fact that they have their eyes on a mobile device, instead of the road.

Police insist that the reason for the law is to eliminate accidents caused by “distracted driving,” but if that is the case, shouldn’t they be setting the example? An investigation by NBC 5 News found that electronic distractions lead to frequent police crashes in Texas.

These electronic devices included things such as “two-way radios, smartphones, dashboard-mounted computers and on-board cameras,” which serves as a reminder that even if police officers stop texting and driving because it is illegal, they still have numerous distractions that can take their attention off of the road.

The investigation found that least 70 police crashes in a 24-month period from 2011-2012, were attributed to some kind of distraction, and the ones that were listed were “just the crashes that involved enough property damage or injury that they had to be reported to the state.”

Many of those crashes were not caused because the officers were texting and driving, but because they were using their dashboard-mounted computers and driving. In one case, a police officer in Austin was found using his computer when he ran a stop sign and hit a man on a motorcycle—severely injuring the man and sentencing him to a life of constant pain. A sheriff’s deputy in Tarrant County was also found to have been using his computer when he ran a red light and injured a woman in a sport utility vehicle.

Former Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck even told NBC 5 that he was not worried about reports of video showing an Arlington police officer speeding down a busy street, while diverting his attention from the road, to his computer. “I’m sorry it’s happened in other cities. It hasn’t happened in Arlington,” Cluck said, claiming the city’s officers are “above the fray.”

While the need for laws that ban texting while driving is an entirely different debate, the fact is that if the public is forced to follow a certain standard of conduct, police officers should be expected to do the same.

In fact, the idea that police officers can somehow be “above the law” when it comes to the public’s concerns about distracted driving is absurd. Not only do police not have supernatural powers that allow them to multi-task in a way that the average citizen cannot, but they also typically have even more electronic distractions in their vehicles, which puts them at a greater risk for getting into an accident.
