“This is why you people get shot,” the white man yelled at the Black man, accusing the homeowner of stealing mail from his own mailbox.

 

A white man in Florida was arrested Tuesday for pointing a gun at and unleashing a racist tirade on a Black man, accusing the homeowner of stealing from his own mailbox.

Joseph Max Fucheck, 58, was booked on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm with prejudice and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, both of which are second-degree felonies, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a statement.

The victim, Dwayne Wynn, was across the street from his home in Miami-Dade talking to a neighbor on June 14 when Fucheck pulled up and placed something in Wynn’s mailbox, the state attorney’s statement said. Wynn walked across the street to see what it was and found a business card that read: “We Buy Houses…CASH!” and “We Buy Houses… FAST!” He then returned to his conversation with his neighbor.

Fucheck circled back toward Wynn in his Jeep, “jumped out of his vehicle, and began a profanity-laced rant, stating, ‘That’s not your property motherf—er! I saw you! I was down the street watching you! I saw you take that out of there. You’re just a motherf—ing nosy neighbor! Give me my card, that’s my property!'” the statement said.

Fucheck twice lunged at Wynn before pulling out a firearm and pointed it at Wynn, the statement said. After he lowered the gun, Wynn began filming the encounter.

In the video Wynn recorded, Fucheck continued to wave the gun, referring to it: “Damn right I carry a motherf—ing gun.” He also continued to accuse Wynn of not owning his property, apparently slurring at times.

As he drove away, Fucheck shouted the N-word at Wynn and yelled: “This is why you people get shot.” Witnesses and children watched the incident unfold.

Please notice the trend of white people just assuming they have the right to interrogate POC with no authority.  It is white privilege.  If a person walked up to these same white people and demanded that they answer a bunch of questions about who they are and what they are doing,   these white people would go nuts screaming about their rights to liberty, to freedom, so on.  However they do not feel POC have those same rights.   If I was at my mailbox and some asshole demanded to know if it was mine I would tell them to go fuck themselves in clear terms crude language.    There is more at the link above, including the video.   Hugs

‘Beat it, little f***er.’ Officers laugh after shooting rubber bullets at protesters.

https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/investigations/article243932047.html

Fort Lauderdale police officers laughed and celebrated after shooting protesters with rubber bullets at a May 31 George Floyd rally in Fort Lauderdale, newly released body camera footage shows.

“Beat it, little f***er,” Detective Zachary Baro, leader of a Fort Lauderdale SWAT team unit,can be heard saying after officers shot “less lethal” projectiles at a protester. The protester was walking away after tossing a tear gas canister back at the line of police.

A few minutes later, another officer, Jamie Chatman,came up to Baro behind the police line and asked if his body camera was off. Baro replied — incorrectly — that his camera was in “stand-by” mode and not recording. The two officers then began laughing and joking about the people they had shot with rubber bullets.

“Did you see me f**k up those motherf****rs?” one of the officers said.

“I got the one f***er,” the other replied amid laughter.

George Kirkham, a former police officer and professor emeritus at Florida State University, condemned the behavior captured on the footage.

“This is serious misconduct. This is people with badges acting like thugs,” Kirkham said. “It’s like a cancer. If you let it go, it will spread.”

Maglione did not respond to questions about whether Baro and Chatman had been placed under internal investigation or removed from duty.

The officers’ conduct was revealed in hours of footage provided by the Fort Lauderdale Police Department in response to a Miami Herald public records request. The footage bolsters protesters’ accounts that police aggression sparked the first documented confrontation between police and protesters.

Marchers hurled plastic water bottles after Officer Steven Pohorence rushed into a crowd of protesters and pushed a kneeling woman in the head. Police responded with a round of tear gas. Still, body camera footage shows that even after that, protesters quickly moved to reestablish peace.

“Please I am begging you, we’re peaceful,” one man can be heard yelling.

“Do you see this?” another man asked to the line of riot police pointing to the protesters taking a knee in the street. “We are going to stop this. We are going to be the generation that brings peace.”

After a few tense minutes, video shows police started to throw tear gas at the group again. Within 15 minutes of Pohorence shoving the woman, Baro had emptied his six-chamber rubber bullet launcher and had to reload, he can be heard saying in his body camera video. (Pohorence was charged with misdemeanor battery on Tuesday.)

“If you need it, give me a target,” Baro yelled to other officers from behind the line of police.

The comment stuck out to Robert Drago, a retired lieutenant colonel at the Broward Sheriff’s Office, who reviewed the footage.

“If you’re not seeing a threat, why are you asking for a threat?” Drago said. “That would almost lead you to believe that they were indiscriminately firing.”

Baro said in his incident report that he was firing rubber bullets at protesters throwing tear gas canisters and other objects.

“I understand what it’s like to have that adrenaline. I’ve been in a riot situation,” Kirkham said. “But that does not excuse that kind of verbiage and behavior. It suggests that the police think they can do whatever they want and get away with it.”

Other policing experts agreed.

“It’s unprofessional. They shouldn’t be laughing and joking about shooting and potentially hurting people,” said Philip Sweeting, former deputy chief of police in Boca Raton. “It reinforces the public’s distrust of the police. It shouldn’t be tolerated.”

Drago also criticized the behavior of Chatman, the officer who asked Baro if his body camera was off.

“It shows intent and then he makes inappropriate, unprofessional statements,” said Drago. “It’s not a carnival. This isn’t hit-three-times-and-get-a-stuffed-animal. It doesn’t seem like these officers had public safety in mind at all.”

Christina Currie, an attorney and chair of the Fort Lauderdale Citizens’ Police Review Board, said Chatman asking if the body camera was off posed a “grave concern.”

“It was pretty obvious the officers were comfortable about talking about turning the camera off,” Currie said. “It didn’t feel like the officer wearing the camera felt shocked about hearing that question. There need to be clearly articulated consequences for violations.”

Fort Lauderdale police policy on body cameras states that: “Once the [camera] is activated to record an interaction, it shall remain on until the event has ended.”

There is more at the link above.   The article clearly shows the police enjoying hurting the people, the police clearly are acting aggressively to establish their power and authority in a bullying thuggish manner.  These are not law officers anymore, they are a gang enforcing their desires through violence and paid for with tax payer money.  I hope people will read the article and understand this is a fight against the authoritarian police gangs who demand more and more of governments budgets and a progressive future.    Hugs

FL Sheriff Vows To Deputize All Gun Owners To Help Put Down Godless Black Lives Matter Protesters

FL Sheriff Vows To Deputize All Gun Owners To Help Put Down Godless Black Lives Matter Protesters [VIDEO]

The Florida Times-Union reports:

Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels vowed to put down any protests that aren’t peaceful with the full force of his office and with the help of gun-owning residents. Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels, no stranger to making viral videos appealing to tough-on-crime politics, released a video Tuesday that said he will make “special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county” if he feels the county is overwhelmed by protesters.

The three-minute video shows Daniels standing in front of 18 deputies as he derides civil-rights protesters as godless disruptors and tells them to stay out of Clay County, a suburb of Jacksonville. Daniels, the county’s first black sheriff, is himself under investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement related to an affair he had with a fellow officer back when he was at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and a subsequent false arrest of that officer.

Here’s the text of his rant:

Don’t fall victim or play victim to this conversation that law enforcement is bad, that law enforcement is the enemy of the citizens that we’re sworn to protect and serve.

We swore an oath, and in that oath, we swore to support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and the government, and that we’re duly qualified under the state’s constitution to hold office.

That means for me as a sheriff and these men and women as deputy sheriffs. And we end that with, ‘So help me God,’ but God is absent from the media’s message or Black Lives Matter or any other group that’s making themselves a spectacle disrupting what we know to be our quality of life in this country.

In Clay County we have a great quality of life. We have a great relationship with our community. But across this nation, not so much. I wanted to take a stand with these men and women who feel the same way as I do.

Lawlessness, that’s unacceptable in this country, that’s unacceptable in Clay County. And if you come to Clay County and you think for one second, we’ll bend our backs for you, you’re sadly mistaken.

I know what happens when lawlessness prevails. And in this day and time, God is raising up men and women just like the folks standing behind me who will have strong backbones and will stand in the gap between lawlessness and the citizenry we’re sworn to protect.

So, you can threaten all you want. You can say let’s go to Clay County or let’s go to some other peaceful county where problems don’t exist where relationships are great and not strained and where the people support their sheriff and support the men and women in uniform. And you’ll have something waiting you don’t want.

Yes, we’ll protect your constitutional rights as long as you remain under the umbrellas of peaceful protest or peaceful march.

But the second you step out from up under protection of the Constitution, we’ll be waiting on you and we’ll give you everything you want. All the publicity all the pain all the glamour and glory for all that five minutes will give you.

Is it a threat? Absolutely not. But someone has to step up in front of the camera and say enough is enough. Tearing up Clay County, that’s not going to be acceptable

If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility. That’s what we’re sworn to do. That’s what we’re going to do. You’ve been warned.

Sheriff Daniels, not incidentally, eventually plans to run for Congress. Clay County, according to local media, has not seen any significant protests.

As Florida Politics notes, this video is “red meat” in Daniels’ tight race to reelected as sheriff.

There is more including the video at the link above.   This whole idea that the police have the right to take violent action, military action, to be the aggressors against citizens, to be judge , jury , and executioner against the people is what is wrong with policing in our country.   When did the government of the people for the people become a ruled people under the wealthy enforced by armed thugs?  Polls show the US is a progressive country when every question is asked by it self.   Yet the old guard will not yield their power.   We really need change in the US.   Hugs
