WATCH: Innocent Man Detained, Assaulted by Cops Because He Had ‘Vegetation’ on His Window

vegetationvegetation

Winfield, Kansas – In a bizarre case that highlights why the War on Drugs has failed in the United States, police claimed they had probable cause to search an innocent man’s car because it had “vegetation” on the window seal.

Rudy Samuel was driving and reportedly obeying all the traffic laws in his town when officers pulled him over and told him he failed to use his turn signal within 100 feet of his turn. He claimed police were just making up an excuse to pull him over to search his vehicle and apparently he was right.

Okay. I’ve been pulled over in Winfield, Kansas, again,” Samuel said, as he documented the encounter on Facebook Live. After asking for his driver’s license and scanning his information to make sure there were not any warrants for his arrest, the two Winfield officers then returned to the vehicle.

“What caught my attention was this vegetation stuff right here,” a Winfield officer told Samuel.

“That’s tree stuff, man! Test it!” Samuel fired back. The officer then took tree droppings and puts it in a plastic bag to be used as evidence in his traffic stop of Samuel.

“I don’t even smoke,” Samuel can be heard saying in his defense.  He then asked the officer to tell him again the reasons why he was stopped, but the officer appeared annoyed at his question saying, “I already explained that to you.

Apparently feeling he had met the standards for probable cause to search the vehicle, incredulously for finding vegetation on the driver’s window seals, the officer then ordered Samuel to step out of his vehicle. The young man objected and called into question the officer’s probable cause. Samuel asked the officer to test the tree droppings to determine if it was an illegal drug or substance but the officer refused, saying he would do it later.

Samuel refused to step out of the car but the officer escalated his use of force by forcing the young man out of the vehicle, onto the ground and detaining him. It is unclear if he was placed in handcuffs or not. The video went dark and eventually ended. Samuel said the officer ended the Facebook live recording by powering off the phone but not before the officer can be heard saying, “You are being detained so I can search the vehicle…you’ve got that vegetation in your window.” Samuel can also repeatedly be heard saying he did not give permission to search his vehicle.

The young man posted the video on his Facebook page and his encounter with police in Winfield has now gone viral. Many residents who commented on the video said they, too, had been pulled over for turn signal violations and harassed by police. Samuel commented on his own video saying they wanted to search his car from the minute they turned on their police lights:

“He wanted to, but they didn’t pull over no dummy. Step by step, I told him patterns where he broke the law. He wanted my phone, I told him he needed a warrant for that too, so he just powered it off which he had no right to,” Samuel said.

With the right lawyer, Samuel will likely win a civil rights lawsuit against the city for the legal traffic stop which turned into an illegal search based on the officer’s own admission he saw plant matter on the window seal. A quick $4 test of the plant matter would have shown within seconds that the material was not an illegal drug or substance. But that was likely NOT what police were after. The video serves to illustrate the lengths law enforcement officers will go to, to bend the law in their favor so they can make unnecessary arrests.

The police contact with Samuel is reminiscent of another traffic stop The Free Thought Project reported on last year. Sherman Jackson and his brother were eating chicken at a local Zaxby’s Chicken restaurant in Smyrna, Georgia, when police officers reported they’d gotten a call about then two acting suspiciously. Both men were eventually arrested after refusing to exit their vehicle. In their minds, they had done nothing wrong. In the eyes of the law, however, they were a target for legal extortion.

Samuel was released after police did not find anything in his car. He and other Winfield residents say this type of harassment happens all the time and they fear that no one can do anything about it.

Innocent Man Arrested, Jailed for Eating Breakfast at Burger King While Being Homeless

homelesshomeless

Boston – In late 2015, a homeless man named Emory Ellis was jailed after he tried to make a purchase at a local Burger King. He approached the counter and attempted to buy breakfast with a $10 bill. The cashier thought the currency looked fake, and called police. Instead of verifying whether or not the money was fake, police apparently assumed it was, and arrested Ellis.

Because Ellis was on probation, the arrest violated the terms of his release and he was booked back into jail where he spent the next three months. It took that long before prosecutors realized the money was actually real and ordered his release in early 2016. Now Ellis is suing Burger King for discriminating against him based on his external appearances.

Ellis’ attorney, Justin Drechsler, said he believes Ellis was discriminated against because he is a poor Black man, and he insisted that a rich White man would never have endured such humiliation.

“A person like me would’ve gotten an apology, but a person like Emory somehow finds his way in handcuffs for trying to pay for his breakfast with real money,” Drechsler said.

According to a report from SFGate, Ellis’ misery did not end after he was refused breakfast and arrested:

Ellis was arrested in November 2015 and charged with forgery of a bank note. His arrest triggered a probation violation and he was held without bail until his final probation violation hearing, according to the lawsuit. He wasn’t released from jail until February 2016, when prosecutors dropped the forgery charge after the Secret Service concluded Ellis’ bill was real, the lawsuit says.

Ellis is now seeking $950,000 in damages from Burger King, which told the press it will not tolerate discrimination of any kind. The 37-year-old man would likely still be in jail had the Secret Service not confirmed the currency’s legitimacy. His lawyer said it is a travesty of justice. “Nobody deserves to be treated the way that Emory was treated,” Drechsler said.

Ellis’ story highlights several talking points demonstrating precisely what is wrong with modern day policing, the judicial system in the United States, and the way society treats the homeless.

Any cashier or law enforcement officer worth his weight in salt could have quickly visited the federal reserve’s website on how to determine if a currency is fake. That didn’t happen. Equally disturbing is the fact the man was held without bail. Ellis, being homeless, should have been allowed to go to his street corner and wait for a full investigation to have been completed before being arrested, especially since it was not conclusive that the bill was not counterfeit. But most disturbing of the allegations is the fact Ellis was left imprisoned a full three months before authorities learned what they could have discovered on the spot.

The bill was real, a man was arrested, his probation was violated, and he was forced to spend a quarter of a year before anyone seemed to care. Ellis is not alone. Thousands of Americans have been accused of crimes, arrested, and jailed, without a speedy trial.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, Americans who are homeless routinely face abuse from police, and they are often targeted, harassed and even arrested simply because of their homeless status. The system is broken and must be fixed.

WATCH: Cop Arrested for Shoving Innocent Elderly Man into Concrete Wall, Breaking His Face and Hip

elderlyelderly

Cincinnati, OH — A Cincinnati cop is actually being held accountable this week after a disturbing video showed him shove an elderly man so hard that he smashed his face on a concrete bench and broke his hip.

On Thursday, former Hamilton County sheriff’s deputy Jason Mize was arrested after he was federally indicted on a charge of deprivation of rights under the color of law. The now-former deputy was seen on video attacking 61-year-old Mark Myers, who was only in jail after being falsely accused of a crime.

According to Cincinnati.com, Myers was arrested Aug. 20, 2016 after being accused of walking out of a Columbia Township Home Depot without paying for $120 in lighting and electrical equipment – a charge that ultimately resulted in an acquittal. He said there had been a computer error related to an online payment he’d already made.

In the video, Mize is seen throwing the elderly man into a holding cell so hard that he went flying into the concrete bench, suffering multiple lacerations to his head and a broken hip.

The incident happened in August of 2016 at the Hamilton County Justice Center. It was captured on the jail’s extremely low quality surveillance video. However, it is clear enough to see a crime take place.

One year ago, Myers sued both Mize and Sheriff Jim Neil, claiming he suffered severe injuries after hitting his head on the concrete wall. Last week, the lawsuit was settled and the taxpayers of Cincinnati shelled out $500,000 to pay for Mize’s crimes.

According to the lawsuit, an internal affairs report said that Mize’s direct supervisor claimed that shoving the elderly man into a concrete wall and bench, causing him to break his hip, did not go against the policy of the jail.

The prosecution agreed and they declined to press charges. However, all that appears to be changing now.

This overt use of excessive force and subsequent cover ups seems to be an ongoing problem in Hamilton County. Even a former jailer has spoken out in the form of a lawsuit against Sheriff Neil and the county, claiming that she was fired for exposing their use of excessive force.

Former major Charmaine McGuffey actually tried to get Mize held accountable for his attack on Myers, but this was to no avail.

In the internal affairs report, former Maj. McGuffey is quoted as saying, “Mize should be arrested or fired for his actions.”

The report concluded Mize “violated our standards which rise to the level of dishonesty and excessive force, along with other internal violations, and disciplinary action is required.”

McGuffey took over the jail when it was the worst in the state. However, in just three years she turned it into one of the best. She was named Law Enforcement Officer and Public Citizen of the Year for her efforts. However, when she tried to expose the jail’s extensive record of excessive force, that’s when they took her out.

It appears that although the state prosecution allowed Mize to escape any accountability, his case was turned over to the FBI who actually charged him. During a hearing on Thursday, federal prosecutors told a judge there were multiple incidents in which he’d used excessive force on inmates. Each time, Mize was disciplined, but he was never fired.

Mize’s attorney told the judge that his client worked in a tough environment which required tough decisions. Apparently, shoving an elderly man into a concrete wall and breaking his hip is one of those tough decisions Mize had to make to keep the citizens of Cincinnati safe.

FBI agents arrested Mize on Thursday and he was released on his own recognizance shortly thereafter, which the judge saying he did not see Mize as a threat to the public. Mize will have to meet several conditions, however, including drug and alcohol testing and a mental evaluation.

If Mize is convicted, he faces up to ten years in prison.

Innocent Couple Raided by Cops for Facebook Post of LEGAL Morel Mushrooms

Darlington, MD — It is a travesty enough when the drug war lays waste to the rights and lives of entirely decent people who’ve harmed no one simply because they choose to ingest a substance deemed illegal by the state. However, because the drug war is such an immoral and barbaric practice, entirely innocent people are also swept up in the dragnet of tyranny and ignorance. Case in point: a couple in Maryland were raided by cops for posting photos of legal morel mushrooms they picked and ate.

On Friday, John Garrison and his girlfriend Hope went foraging the mountains for some morel mushrooms. Morels are known to those in the region as being the safest mushroom to hunt for as they are very easily identified due to their unique look. From mid April to mid May, lovers of nature and good food, like John and Hope will find them growing near trees or where there used to be trees.

Garrison was so excited that they had found a bunch of them, that he posted a photo on Facebook of he and Hope’s bounty along with his plans to “sautee them with brown sugar and cinnamon and see how that turns out.”

A great night of good food was set to follow an awesome day of hiking and foraging. That is, however, until the wheels of the police state drug war caught a whiff of the mushrooms.

Garrison made the post that they were about to saute the mushrooms at 9:09 pm. Only hours later as he and Hope sat back with full bellies, police showed up.

“We had just finished eating the Morels we found today and heard a knock on the door. A police officer and an RA were standing outside. We let them in and as soon as the police officer walked in he asked us why we were eating mushrooms and posting about it online. He thought he was on the biggest bust of his career thinking we were having a magic mushroom party before I explained to him that Morels are a native choice edible mushroom similar to truffles,” explained Garrison.

However, this cop—clearly unaware of the tasty morel and hell bent on busting kids for eating mushrooms—just knew he had caught himself a pair of hardened criminals who’d dare to expand their consciousness in the sanctity of their own home.

“He wasn’t convinced. So I rummaged through the trash to find a peice (sic) of a Morel so that he would have evidence that we weren’t taking psychedelic mushrooms. I showed him and he still wasn’t convinced that they weren’t magic mushrooms, Which was shocking to me because morels look nothing like a psychedelic psilocybin (sic) mushrooms and I figured a police officer would know what illegal drugs looked like. A second police officer showed up and I showed her the Morel and she immediately knew it was a Morel which was a relief. They processed our ID’s and eventually left. What an experience,” Garrison wrote on Facebook.

Indeed, it was a troublesome experience and, had anything made police fear for their lives during this interaction, things could have turned out a lot worse.

Equally as troubling as cops raiding your apartment over Facebook posts for legal mushrooms is how they found out about it in the first place. Were police simply trolling Facebook that night and saw Garrison’s post? Or, did some “good citizen” do their due diligence and “see something and say something”?

Either way, both of those scenarios are undesirable and facilitated by the state’s immoral and violent drug war. Until the dinosaurs in the prison industrial complex—who keep the drug war alive to reap massive profits off of persecuting people for victimless crimes—are exposed, this madness will continue and others will not be as luck as John and Hope.

Deep State tool Robert Mueller has a long history of targeting innocent people, which explains why he was picked to go after POTUS Trump


Image: Deep State tool Robert Mueller has a long history of targeting innocent people, which explains why he was picked to go after POTUS Trump

(Natural News)
By now it should be patently obvious to anyone who retains even a modicum of fairness in this highly charged, highly-partisan political environment in which we find ourselves these days that special counsel Robert Mueller isn’t interested in finding “Trump-Russia collusion.”

After nearly a year’s worth of investigating — a probe that followed a counterterrorism operation launched in the summer of 2016 against the Trump campaign by the Obama administration and at least three congressional investigations — Mueller hasn’t found any evidence of collusion.

In fact, the House Intelligence Committee has come up with a report from majority Republicans that the panel has not found one shred of evidence indicating collusion or any other illegal campaign activities involving Russia or any foreign government. The Democrats on the panel claim there is proof but they haven’t produced any (and they would have by now).

So what is Mueller actually investigating at the moment? Why does he keep indicting minor campaign figures and one former Trump administration official (Michael Flynn) for process crimes and other alleged illegal activities from more than 10 years ago?

How broad was the mandate, exactly, that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Mueller and his team when he named the former FBI director to be special counsel — on a set-up initiated by another former FBI director, James Comey?

We don’t yet have answers to these questions, but one thing we do know is this: Mueller, who is hailed and feted by the D.C. Swamp to be a man of indisputable integrity, instead has a history of being little more than a dirty cop. (Related: ‘Golden Boy’ Robert Mueller’s forgotten surveillance crime spree.)

History of prosecutorial abuse

This story begins years ago when Mueller was first an assistant U.S. attorney then as the acting U.S. attorney in Boston. 

Throughout the 1980s, Mueller wrote letters to the state’s parole and pardons board opposing clemency for four men — Peter Limone, Henry Tameleo, Joe Salvati, and Louis Greco, who were convicted for a 1965 mob-related murder.

But it turns out they were innocent. And it turns out that Mueller knew they were innocent. 

Some rogue FBI agents, John Connolly and John Morris, both of whom were “handlers” for mob figure-turned-FBI informant Whitey Bulger, attempted to intimidate a local parole board member, Mike Albano — who later became mayor of Springfield, Mass. — into dropping his sympathy for the four men and any inkling of voting to grant them clemency.

“They told me that if I wanted to stay in public life, I shouldn’t vote to release a guy like Limone,’’ Albano said. “They intimidated me.’’

Both agents, of course, would have had to have been answerable to the U.S. attorney in Boston at the time, which was, as previously stated, Bob Mueller.

There’s more. After Albano became mayor in 1995 he found that the FBI had begun investigating his administration for ‘corruption.’ After taking down several people associated with his government, he became convinced that “the FBI wasn’t interested in public integrity as much as in publicly humiliating him because he dared to defy them,” the Boston Globe’s Kevin Cullen writes.

Sound familiar?

Sen. Ted Stevens

Former Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, was, at the time, the longest-serving GOP senator who had an impeccable reputation among those who knew him. But shortly before the 2008 election he was indicted by the FBI — led at the time by Director Robert Mueller — based on falsified records and testimony from some very well rewarded “cooperating” witnesses. 

In short order, it was reported that the government had concealed exculpatory evidence from Stevens’ defense team. As such, an independent investigation was ordered by U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, which discovered that the prosecution was “permeated by the systemic concealment of significant exculpatory evidence, which would have independently corroborated Senator Stevens’ defense and his testimony, and seriously damaged the testimony and credibility of the government’s key witness.”

A just-released report by U.S. Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, titled, “Robert Mueller: Unmasked,” recounted the injustice. 

The ‘stink’ was that Stevens, whom retired Army general and Secretary of State Colin Powell described as “a trusted individual” whom people “could rely on,” did not pay full price for improvements to his Alaskan cabin. The charges were leveled 100 days out from a closely contested election; he was convicted just eight days before voters went to the polls, which tipped the scale to his Democratic opponent.

But in fact, as reports noted at the time, Gohmert’s report states, Stevens actually overpaid for those improvements by about 20 percent. Nevertheless, after relying on false records and that ‘rewarded’ witness, the prosecution convinced jurors to find him guilty.

States Gohmert’s report:

After a report substantiated massive improprieties by the FBI and DOJ in the investigation and prosecution of Senator Stevens, the result was ultimately a complete dismissal of the conviction.

At the time there was no direct evidence that Director Mueller was aware of the tactics of concealing exculpatory evidence that would have exonerated Stevens, and the creation of evidence that convicted him in 2008.

However, Mueller is culpable because, as director, he allowed the FBI agent who essentially manufactured the case against Stevens to remain on board (to this day), while allowing an agent who blew the whistle on the corrupt case to be punished.

“Obviously, the FBI Director wanted his FBI agents to understand that honesty would be punished if it revealed wrongdoing within Mueller’s organization,” said Gohmert’s report.

Uranium One

In March, Gohmert told a monthly meeting of conservatives that he believes Mueller’s never-ending ‘Russian collusion’ investigation is designed, in part, to cover up a real scandal: Uranium One.

“I think Mueller should be fired,” Gohmert, a former state judge, said during the monthly “Conversation with Conservatives” meeting. “He should never have been appointed and he should never have accepted. He should be fired.”

To that end, as The National Sentinel reported in January, Mueller’s FBI had been investigating a scheme since 2008 that involved bribery, kickbacks, and money laundering with a Russian nuclear industry official, Vadim Mikerin, who was acting in order to secure a business advantage with TENEX, a subsidiary of Russian state-owned nuclear firm Rosatom, which bought Uranium One.

Now-fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had been assigned to oversee the ongoing investigation, which was never revealed to the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States — the body that approves sales of U.S. firms with possible strategic implications to foreign companies. Had the committee known, it would have never approved the Uranium One sale.

Eventually, four individuals were prosecuted but then given a plea bargain after the Uranium One sale was approved; the prosecuting Justice Department attorneys were current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Andrew Weissman, a Democrat supporter now on Mueller’s special counsel team.

Additional reporting noted that the Obama DoJ never called the deal’s secret informant, William D. Campbell, when it was time to charge former Russian uranium industry official Mikerinn.

“I’ve never heard of such a case unless the victim is dead. I’ve never heard of prosecutors making a major case and not talking to the victim before you made it, especially when he was available to them through the FBI,” Alan Dershowitz told The Hill.

There’s much more to report regarding Mueller’s Deep State corruption. Stay tuned.

WATCH: Raging Cop Nearly Shoots Innocent Man, Falsely Accusing Him of Stealing Candy

mentosmentos

Disturbing security camera footage has been released that shows an off-duty police officer pulling out his gun and threatening a man at a convenience store because he suspected the man was attempting to steal a small pack of candy.

For years, The Free Thought Project has highlighted the reality that police officers are allowed to pull their guns on citizens, point them at their heads, and get away with it—something the average citizen cannot do. They are allowed to do so under legal “qualified immunity” statutes, which keep government officials from prosecution for acting in their duties as officers of the peace, even when they are off-duty.

Jose Arreola, a 49-year-old printer from Bellflower, California, likely was not thinking about qualified immunity when he attempted to buy a pack of Mentos candy at his local convenience store. He simply approached the cashier, placed the item on the counter, and then paid for it with a $20 bill.

After paying for the candy, Arreola reached across the counter and put the candy in his pocket. That last part is probably the only thing the off-duty officer from the Buena Park Police Department saw—Arreola reaching across the counter when the clerk’s head was turned away, looking at the register’s screen.

The unidentified officer, who appears to be of Asian descent, reached into his pocket, removed what appears to be a Glock handgun, slid a bullet into the chamber of the weapon by racking the slide, and then pointed the loaded and ready-to-fire gun at the man.

“Hey, give that back. I’m a police officer…put it back! …Police officer…put it back!” the officer yelled.

Arreola immediately defends his actions by saying in a startled voice, “Oh! I paid for it… I just paid for this!”

The officer then turned his attention to the clerk as he put his gun away and said to the store’s attendant, “He tried stealing that from you…Get your cash and leave…Did he pay for this? He paid for it? Are you sure?”

It was at that point the officer knew he screwed up and immediately apologized. The clerk confirmed Arreola, who was dressed in a business jacket, had indeed paid for all of his items. “Uh-huh,” the clerk responded when asked if he paid.

My apologies sir, my apologies,” The officer said.

However, Arreola does not accept the officer’s apologies. He told the Orange County Register:

“It made me mad. At the same time, it scared me because I thought he could shoot me…It’s been a month and I still can’t shake it…It was traumatic, the whole incident. (And) I grew up in Santa Ana. I’ve been shot at before.”

Predictably, the Buena Park Police Department is not commenting as Arreola is certainly suing. The BPPD released a statement regarding the incident:

“There is an internal investigation being conducted into the incident. Because of this investigation, and the possibility of legal action, we will not be commenting on the incident or the investigation at this time.”

Had Arreola been carrying a weapon, something which is allowed under California State’s concealed carry gun laws, the entire situation could have transpired very differently, especially if Arreola believed the man behind him was going to rob the store.

But it is not the first time a police officer has pulled a gun on an unsuspecting citizen. As TFTP has documented on several occasions, when an officer “feels threatened,” he or she will often pull out their weapon and point it at people. That is something that, when done by the average citizen, is called “brandishing a weapon.”

How and why police officers are allowed to do it is anyone’s guess and has left countless critics shaking their heads in disbelief. When officers are allowed to do things average citizens are not allowed to do, many people, like Arreola, feel an injustice has taken place. Arreola’s civil rights were definitively violated, but now it is up to the court to decide whether or not he should receive any money for having his Fourth Amendment rights violated.

Innocent Driver Blamed After NY Cop Drives 74 in 40 MPH Zone Without Lights, Sirens, or Seatbelt, and Dies

New details have been released by New York State Police in the case of the Whitesboro police officer who crashed and died while speeding with his lights and sirens off in an April 11 incident.

Whitesboro Police Officer Kevin Crossley, 34, was traveling at 74 mph in a 40 mph zone without wearing a seatbelt, and without lights and sirens to warn others of his dangerous driving, reported WKTV.

The driver of the vehicle that was struck by the speeding officer, Nicole Moshier-Harris, was ticket for failure to yield the right of way.

NY troopers say that a witness statement and video from a nearby business show Crossley was going eastbound on Oriskany Boulevard when he collided with a Chevy Avalanche near the intersection of Westmoreland Street.

Crossley was taken to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Utica, where he was pronounced dead. The Onondaga County Medical Examiner’s Office said he died from multiple traumatic injuries.

Moshier-Harris was also taken to the hospital and treated for a leg injury before being released.

New York State exempts police from the seatbelt law, but the Whitesoboro Police Department policy and procedure manual states anyone operating a village vehicle is required to wear a seatbelt.

WATCH: Cops Break Into Innocent Man’s Home, Taser Him to Death in the Shower—No Charges

showershower

Milwaukee, WI — In May of last year, two West Milwaukee police officers broke down the door to Adam Trammell’s home, confronted him as he stood naked in his shower, and tasered him 18 times until he died. This month, Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm has decided that the two cops responsible for this horrifying incident will not be charged.

On that fateful day, officers Michael Rohleder and Anthony Munoz “responded to a medical emergency under complex circumstances that required them to attempt restraint,” Chisholm wrote to West Milwaukee Police Chief Dennis L. Nasci.

However, according to investigative reports, Trammell, 22, who suffered from schizophrenia, did not exhibit any signs of needing medical attention as police arrived and began to forcibly remove him from the shower.

What’s more, if authorities claim he was in need of medical attention, why would they respond by attacking him in the shower with tasers and brute force? This was not help.

“These police tortured Adam Trammell to death,” said Robin Shellow, one of the attorneys representing the Trammell family, according to JSonline“This was not ‘help.’ They were not protecting or serving anyone. Naked, cold, confused, alone in his own bathroom and crying for Jesus to take him, he needlessly suffered.”

As the highly disturbing body camera video shows, Trammell was naked in the shower—entirely calm—when police broke down his door. As the innocent mentally ill man stood in his shower, the curtain is then ripped back and an officer says twice, “Brandon, I’m going to need you to come on out,” referring to Trammell by the incorrect name.

As Brandon was not his name, the confused Trammell did not respond which made the officers escalate force. “You’re going to get tased,” the officer barked before deploying the taser on a naked man in his own shower. Trammell then falls to the floor in pain and begins to panic as the two armed intruders proceed to torture him—to death.

It is important to point out that Trammell never posed a threat to officers. He was entirely calm, naked, and did absolutely nothing wrong except not respond to the name Brandon. He had harmed no one, had committed no crime, and he was attacked and killed by people claiming to help him.

Over and over again, as Trammell screams out in agony, the officers deploy their tasers, shocking this innocent man up to 18 times. The repeated tasering caused Trammell to go into distress and this young man spent his last moments of consciousness in agonizing pain while vomiting profusely.

According to the medical examiner’s report, Trammell suffered a black eye, a broken rib and more than two dozen cuts and bruises.

In spite of the overwhelming evidence showing the attack on Trammell, Chisholm concluded there was “no basis to conclusively link” the death of Trammell to the officers’ actions.

“The family first saw the video at the DA’s office. So yes they’ve seen the video and they weep every time they see it,” the Trammell family’s attorney Mark Thomsen told WISN. “We had a young man in a bath tub naked, OK? Why they engaged in tasing for 15 to 18 times is beyond my imagination.

“For no good reason — and essentially tortured to death,” Thomsen added. “That should not happen to the mentally ill in our community.”

However, it did, and now, thanks to a failure of a justice system, the officers responsible for for it will not be held accountable. Instead, the taxpayers of West Milwaukee will likely shell out millions for the murder of Adam Trammell.

“This is a nightmare. I can’t believe this,” Larry Trammell, the victim’s father said. “I think those people should resign. The D.A. and the chief of that police department.”

We agree.

WATCH: Cop Punch Innocent Man in the Head 12 Times & Joke About It with Fellow Cops

jokejoke

Camden County, NJ — Edward Minguela had done nothing wrong and was simply walking home last February when he was attacked by Camden County police officer Nicholas Romantino. The subsequent attack was captured on video and immediately sparked outrage. Now, however, a new video has just been released of the officers laughing and joking about beating up this innocent man.

On February 22, Minguela was walking home from a nearby store, and as the surveillance footage shows, he was approached by Ramantino. Officers claim they were responding to a call about a man with a gun, but Minguela had no such gun.

As the video shows, police run up on Minguela with guns drawn and he immediately complies with their orders to put his hands up. However, as they attempt to handcuff him, he appears to slightly pull away. That’s when all hell broke loose.

Romantino slams the non-violent man to the ground and begins punching him in the head. Boom, boom, boom, Ramantino delivers blow after blow to the head of Minguela as he yells at the man who is simply trying to defend himself from being killed by police to “put your hands behind your back!”

In total, Romantino would deliver 12 massive blows to the head and face of Minguela who is begging the officer to stop, asking, “Why you hitting me like that bro?”

After bringing Minguela to the car, Romantino pats him down—finding nothing on or near the scene. At one point, Minguela accused Romantino of kicking him after he called him a name.

After he was kidnapped and thrown in the back of the cruiser, Minguela continued to ask the driver, Officer Peter Sanchez, why he was arrested. “You’ll have to ask the officer that arrested you,” he replies.

In the video obtained through a FOIA request by NJ.com, it then shows Romantino laughing about beating the innocent man, showing off his swollen knuckles as a trophy.

“That guy. He’s always giving us a hard time, that guy,” Romantino said.

“Not anymore,” he said as his comments were met with laughter by his fellow cops, who seemed entirely resolute in the notion of attacking, beating, and kidnapping an innocent man.

According to Minguela, he was then brought to the hospital to be treated for his injuries. But police, who then turned off their body cameras, told Minguela that if he got treated for his injuries they would fabricate even more erroneous and even felony charges against him.

Minguela says this forced him to forgo the treatment and he left. However, on the advice of an attorney, Minguela went back to the hospital the next day and was treated for a concussion and a fractured wrist.

According to Devon Jacob, Minguela’s attorney, who is threatening to sue police over the alleged civil rights violations, the call to police is a recurring problem. Someone is apparently using police to punish Minguela by making anonymous calls to the police to report him.

Thanks to the actions of Romantino, it has worked and now Minguela has not only been brutally beaten, but he’s also facing charges of resisting arrest and obstruction.

Jacob has since asked the prosecutor to throw out the charges, however, they still remain active.

According to NJ.com, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said last week that no charges will be filed against Romantino, because video of the incident shows Minguela was resisting by pulling his arms away from Romantino’s grasp. However, he remains on unpaid leave as the police department conducts its own internal affairs investigation.

Too expensive’ to delete millions of police mugshots of innocent people, minister claims

Millions of police mugshots of innocent people cannot be deleted because it would be too expensive, a government minister has claimed – despite a High Court ruling that the practice is unlawful.

The work would have to be “done manually” by local forces, making the costs “difficult to justify”, a committee of MPs investigating the controversy has been told.

The Home Office has also admitted it has no idea how many people have successfully asked for their mugshots to be deleted – amid suspicions that the figure is very low.

The revelations were quickly attacked by Norman Lamb, the chairman of the science and technology committee, who has warned the mass retention of facial images raises “fundamental civil liberty issues”.

They come just days after it was revealed the Home Office destroyed landing cards which could have helped Windrush arrivals prove their right to stay in the UK – allegedly to comply with data protection laws.

“Innocent people should rightly expect that images gathered of them in relation to a crime will be removed if they are not convicted,” Mr Lamb, a Liberal Democrat, said.
