Two Buffalo Cops Suspended After Shoving An Elderly Man, Police Had Claimed He “Tripped And Fell”

This is the police state we live in.  An authoritarian brutal police in charge at all costs country.  Even when some wanted to help the man others forced them not to.   IS this protecting the people?   Is this for the public good?   Only two cops suspended?   What about the others who were there and did not offer aid?   Hugs

Please go to the link above and read the reports from the various news organizations that were there and seen this.   The police originally lied about saying the man fell during a skirmish with police.   Hugs

An unidentified, 75-year-old man was shoved by two officers in the line. The man lost his balance and fell to the pavement, audibly hitting his head with blood running out from under his head. The man is in serious, but stable condition at ECMC as of Thursday night, reportedly with a concussion and lacerations.

We need police reform NOW

Officer Involved in George Floyd’s Death Beat Up Unarmed, Handcuffed Black Man in 2014

Thao has had a spotty career with law enforcement since he started with the Minneapolis Police Department as a community service officer. After going through the police academy in 2009, he was laid off a year later. In 2012, he returned to the department.

According to Minneapolis’ Communities United Against Police Brutality, six complaints have been filed against the now-former police officer—but no disciplinary action was ever taken. The details of the six complaints were not immediately clear.

In 2017, Thao and another officer were sued by Lamar Ferguson, 26, after Ferguson alleged the two officers used excessive force during an Oct. 7, 2014 arrest. According to the lawsuit obtained by The Daily Beast, Ferguson said the officers “punch[ed], kick[ed], and kn[eed]” him “to the face and body” while he was handcuffed. The incident was so violent he suffered “broken teeth as well as other bruising and trauma.”

“What happened back in 2017 was a pretty serious incident in my mind but it made no headlines—at all—and was not nearly as serious as what happened to George Floyd,” Seth Leventhal, one of Ferguson’s attorneys, told The Daily Beast on Wednesday. “But seeing that horrific video begs the question, ‘What did the police do internally in response to the 2017 incident?’”

The two were stopped in the block-and-a-half walk from his grandmother’s home to his girlfriend’s home. The lawsuit, which said that the officers had no probable cause to stop the pair, began to search the pair without explanation.

Handcuffing Ferguson, Thao allegedly stated that there was a warrant out for his arrest—a claim the lawsuit said was false. While questioning him, the officers began to grab and pull the handcuffed Ferguson, before Thao threw him to the ground “and began hitting him.”

The lawsuit stressed that Ferguson was not resisting arrest, was unarmed, and was lying face down on the ground as the officer began the assault, even after Ferguson began to shout for help.

“Facedown on the ground and handcuffed, Officer Thao pulled [Ferguson’s] head up by grabbing the back of his hooded sweatshirt,” the lawsuit stated, while the other officer kicked him in the mouth.

After the assault, the two officers took Ferguson to a hospital for medical treatment. Ignoring the hospital staff’s concerns that Ferguson should be allowed to get dressed before being discharged, the officers took him to jail in only a t-shirt and underpants, the lawsuit stated.

In an August 2017 deposition about the suit, Thao argued that the officers arrested Ferguson because of an outstanding warrant—and only began punching him after one of his hands slipped out of the handcuffs.

“At some point one of his arms, I believe it was the left arm, pops out of the handcuffs and he tries to pull away,” Thao said in the deposition obtained by The Daily Beast. “And he puts his hands on me and tries to give me a stiff arm in a way to try to get me off of him. After—at this point, he’s actively resisting arrest. He—so I had no choice but to punch him. I punched him in the face.”

More at the link above.   The US has a deeply entrenched militarized hateful arrogant vengeful police system out to satisfy their base interests.   The US needs to see the truth of this right now and fix it while we can.  Those of privilege never see this side of the police as they use it and take out their angers on the lower incomes, poor, and POC.    Hugs

Police or thugs, I say they are thugs with no respect for the law nor for people.

This is serious people.  This is what we are fighting against.  The take over of authoritarian thugs in police uniforms.   They have terrorized POC for decades unopposed, now they want to be able to do it to everyone.   The scared man child in the White House is proud of these people and their actions.   Fascism is how democracy dies.    Hugs

Police opened fire on a gay bar because the owner was handing out water to protesters

Police must be obeyed at all cost in the land of the free … fascists.  Hugs

https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2020/06/police-opened-fire-gay-bar-owner-handing-water-protestors/

Police opened fire on an LGBTQ bar in North Carolina after they received an anonymous tip that the bar was giving water bottles to protestors.

So on Sunday evening he decided to stay at his business, in part to deter vandals. He also set up a first aid station for people who needed medical attention, washing tear gas and pepper spray out of people’s eyes and handing out water bottles and granola bars.

He said that he and some staff were working there for about seven hours before six police officers arrived and told them to move just after midnight.

“This is my business,” Lemuel responded in video that has since been posted online. “I rent this space.”

The police officers again told him to move. “The game is over. Get out.”

Lemuel walked back toward his bar, and police said, “You’ve been told,” and opened fire.

 

Lemuel said that deputies had already passed by the bar, which isn’t far from the Wake County Justice Center.

“During the seven hours, they had, you know, every opportunity to come down and check on us, see what was going on or tell us their concerns,” he said.

“They just chose not to. And at some point they just went straight for guns blazing.”

Jen Varani was also helping at the first aid station. She said that it was clear that they weren’t protestors.

“But we weren’t chanting. We weren’t yelling. We weren’t gesturing to them. There was nothing that we were doing to instigate a response like that.”

The Wake County Sheriff’s Office, though, said that the shooting was justified because it worked and forced the first aid station to disband.

We should abolish police use of tear gas. It is a brutal act of terror used against citizens by police accused of being brutal.

Chris Cuomo: Why Trump won’t acknowledge the nation is hurting

OK everyone I have to go to bed, I am barely able to keep my eyes open.   I know I did not get all the comments answered today, I will try to do so tomorrow morning.   Love and hugs to all.    Scottie

Priorities. Kids go hungry, people homeless, many barely surviving, police well equipped with military like hardware.

Before the racist stereotypes kick in

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Economics, Fascism, Greed, Hate, Health, News, Political, Questions, Race, Reason, Videos — Scottie @ 13:33

Hello Everyone, making a double loaves of bread recipe so in between steps I am trying to check some news.   But I noticed something in a lot of the videos compared to comments on them.   The comments talk about how POC are stealing and looting and making it seem that this is what is normal.  How ever I noticed that the windows breakers seemed mostly white and the looters seemed mix and in some videos heavy leaning white.     So keep in mind people are people.  There is no difference in skin color in how people will act, it simply is both their economic situations and their individual code of living.  Hugs
