  • The Daniel Shaver case still makes me so fucking angry. That cop should be skinned alive.

    Comment


    • Lawyers of a Black Texas man and civil rights activists are calling for justice after he was allegedly grabbed and slammed on to concrete ground by police officers at a jail in Beaumont, Texas, leaving him paralyzed from the chest down.

      On Wednesday, lawyers of 41-year-old Christopher Shaw hosted a press conference that called for justice for Shaw, who was severely injured while in custody in June 2021.

      According to a lawsuit filed last month, Shaw was arrested on 12 June 2021 over misdemeanor public intoxication charges after Beaumont police officer James Gillen found him standing in the middle of a roadway, “in need of medical assistance”. Shaw was then taken to a hospital to be evaluated before being transported to Jefferson county correctional facility in Beaumont where he was restrained for “noncompliance”.

      “Before entering the facility, Mr Shaw slightly turned his body. Defendant Gillen responded by attempting to slam Mr Shaw to the concrete platform at the rear entrance of the facility,” the lawsuit said.

      He landed on his head and fractured his spine in multiple places, the lawsuit alleges. Shaw asked for help from jail staff and employees of the jail’s medical contractor CorrHealth but they refused to help him, according to the lawsuit. When Shaw asked one nurse for assistance, she allegedly told him, “I won’t help you until you help yourself.”

      The lawsuit added that Shaw was left alone in his jail cell for approximately 20 hours before someone attended to him medically. While he was left alone in his cell, he “defecated and urinated on himself multiple times due to his inability to control his bowels and kidney function”, the lawsuit said. Only later was an ambulance called for him and he was taken to the hospital again where he underwent various emergency surgeries.

      • He should have complied.

        But isn't it a double standard that white people like Trump, Giuliani, Navarro and others can openly ignore orders by federal cops to comply?

            A viral video shows what appears to be three law enforcement officers beating a man in a use-of-force incident in Crawford County, Arkansas.

            Randal Ray Worcester, 27, of Goose Creek South Carolina, is the man in the video, according to jail records. He is 5 foot 10 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He is being held on $15,000 bail. According to Crawford County jail records, he is being held on these charges: Battery in the second degree, assault in the first degree, resisting arrest, possessing an instrument of crime, criminal trespass, criminal mischief in the second degree, terroristic threatening in the first degree, and assault in the second degree.

            According to TVH11, Worcester is accused of spitting on the convenience store manager before threatening to “cut off their face.”

            The sheriff says the man attacked deputies first, pushing an officer to the ground and punching him in the head, according to THV11. A state police investigation will review the officers’ use-of-force actions. The three officers shown in the video have not been identified.

            The graphic video shows one officer punching the man in the head and slamming his head against cement. This is while another officer knees and kicks him in the lower body. A third officer is seen restraining the suspect on the ground while this is all being done.

            Two of the officers are deputies with the Crawford County Sheriff's Department, and a third officer is affiliated with the Mulberry Police Department.

            The Crawford County Sheriff’s Department wrote on Facebook, “In reference to the video circulating social media involving two Crawford County Deputies, we have requested that Arkansas State Police conduct the investigation and the Deputies have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. I hold all my employees accountable for their actions and will take appropriate measures in this matter.”

                  Every news outlet should be required to get a quote from the perp if they are going to quote a cop about a criminal investigation.

                  I mean, it's like a 90% chance this sheriff is fucking lying here. So why even run his quote?

                    • Police let fellow officer go without breathalyzer after crash that fractured toddler's skull: report

                      An off-duty Suffolk County police officer who fractured a 2-year-old boy’s skull when he rear-ended a car with his pickup truck was allowed by his fellow officers to forgo an alcohol test.

                      Because officers broke protocol and failed to administer a test, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office was unable to pursue vehicular assault charges against Officer David Mascarella.

                      The officers involved also failed to notify the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office that Mascarella had refused to take a breathalyzer test, which prevented the DA from deciding to seek a warrant for a blood test which could have verified if he was drunk during the accident.

                      Mascarella crashed his truck at over 50 mph into a car holding Kevin Cavooris and his two young sons on Middle Country Road in Saint James in August 2020.

                      Cavooris had slowed to make a left turn when he was rear-ended by Mascarella, who was driving erratically for about a mile-and-a-half before the collision, according to a witness cited in the police report.

                      Cavooris was thrown into the steering wheel and broke his nose, while his two-year-old son’s skull cracked in multiple places.

                      Officers from the precinct Mascarella works at responded to the crash and broke protocol to protect him from undergoing alcohol tests.

                      A detective told Sgt. Lawrence McQuade he wanted to administer a breathalyzer test, but McQuade instead contacted Officer Joseph Russo, a Suffolk County Police Benevolent Association delegate. Russo drove Mascarella away from the scene of the crash before he could be tested.

                      Officer Kevin Wustenhoff lied to a supervisor that he had given Mascarella a breath test and that he had passed, an anonymous law enforcement source told Newsday.

                      Wustenhoff later retracted his report.

                      Three hours after the crash, Deputy Inspector Mark Fisher finally asked Mascarella to take a breath test, and the off-duty officer refused.

                      Normally, when a driver refuses a breathalyzer, police seek a warrant to have the driver’s blood tested for alcohol.

                      Fisher instead issued a traffic ticket and moved on.

                        Okay. First… yeah. This tracks. Usually officers just slow walk the alcohol test for another officer, giving them “unofficial” tests until they pass. And, by slow walking it, I mean go out for breakfast and chill for hours. For the sake of argument, let’s assume that’s what Russo did with this guy. But apparently, even three vomit-filled hours later, this cop was still sauced, and refused to take a test.

                        Now. This guy can refuse to give a breath sample, and he can even refuse to give a blood sample. If he does so, they have to convict him without that evidence. However, as he would have circumvented the state’s implied consent laws, he would automatically lose his license for a year.

                        By the way… you generally get one of these. If you try to play this card again, most judges will find you guilty even without evidence. Frankly, it’s the smart call to make, if you know the police have zero evidence other than you incriminating yourself.

                        But, back to this asshole. His fucking truck is still sitting there at the scene, long after he’s chugging a coffee at Waffletown. He left the scene of an accident. He then had other cops tripping over themselves to muddy the waters.

                        I wish I could say I’m surprised. But, I’ve seen only a very small handful of DWI cases involving police officers, yet I know for a fact that many drive drunk all the time.

                          This cop and the cops who covered for him should be lined up against the wall and shot.

                            I’d be okay with them all being prosecuted.

                            • Cavooris was thrown into the steering wheel and broke his nose, while his two-year-old son’s skull cracked in multiple places.

                              The injured child had to relearn how to feed himself and perform other activities he had recently learned as a toddler.

                              Almost two years after the crash, he still needs leg braces and is unable to run or jump.
