Have you ever wondered why Black Lives Matter even exists? It is because of crooked cops who use their badge and gun to murder innocent people, And it’s also because of people like Maria Daly, who filed a false report claiming her home was burglarized, and that Black Lives Matter did the crime.
In this case, the wife of a Massachusetts police officer blamed Black Lives Matter for what turned out to be a bogus invasion of her home. Maria Daly faces charges for filing the false report.
Daly, who is married to an officer on the Millbury police force, claimed in an Oct. 17 police report that robbers busted into her home and stole jewelry and cash in the middle of the night.
The burglars spray-painted “BLM,” shorthand for Black Lives Matter, on the side of the house before dashing off with about $10,000 worth of loot, she told police.
“We woke up to not only our house being robbed while we were sleeping but to see this hatred for no reason,” she wrote on Facebook after she reported the “crime” to cops.
The cop’s wife continued: “If you would have asked me yesterday about this blue lives and black lives matter issue my response would have been very positive. Today on the other hand I have so much anger and hate that I don’t like myself.”
So the black guy in the video was walking in the street. According to the woman filming the video, the sidewalk was under construction, so that was possibly the reason for the man using the road… trying to get around the construction.
That is when he was grabbed by a plain clothes police officer who told the man that he was being arrested because he was walking in the street.
Larnie B. Thomas, 34, of Minneapolis, began screaming to the officer, telling him to “get your hands off me.” He also told the officer, “I didn’t do anything,” to which the officer replied, “you were walking in the street.” A visibly aggravated Thomas screamed, “So you’re gonna arrest me for that?”
Janet Rowles, the women who filmed the video, said she is not against the police, but added the cop could have handled the situation better instead of grabbing Thomas by the jacket.
“I’m not against the police,” she said in an interview Friday. “I was against what he was doing.”
The video has since gone viral since being posted on October 12th.
Thomas was arrested and cited for pedestrian failure to obey a traffic signal and disorderly conduct. He was later released.
Why? Why did police in South Carolina pull over a driver and felt the need, no, felt the urge to search the passenger’s rectum? Because the female driver and owner of the vehicle, Lakeya Hicks, had legal paper tags on the car, so that apparently meant a rectum search along the roadside was in order!
The disturbing dashcam video shows police pulling the car over and removing Hicks and her passenger, Elijah Pontoon. Police then explained that because of the passenger’s history, “I’ve got a dog coming in here. Gonna walk a dog around the car.” Also: “You gonna pay for this one, boy.”
After the dog arrived and searched the car for contraband, none was found. Police is then seen going through the car, inside and out, opening he hood, still finding no contraband. The only other place to search was apparently the man’s rectum.
Audio from the video suggests all they found was a hemorrhoid. At the same time, according to a federal lawsuit filed on their behalf, a female officer began searching Hicks, exposing her breasts to the three male officers and anyone else who happened to be on the road.
Again, no contraband was found.
Later, a dejected Medlin can be heard on the radio speaking to a superior after the fruitless search.
“We search the car. There ain’t nothing in the car… And on a search of him, up in his crotch by the butt, I felt something hard. I lifted his pants and pulled the back of his underwear down and I didn’t see anything but I didn’t get all the way up in there to get no vertical up shot. I just pulled his underwear back, but I didn’t see nothing. But it felt, he said it was a hemorrhoid. It ain’t no… it was a rock. It was a rock of crack. It’s gotta be a rock. He’s got it up in his butt.”
Medlin sadly concludes, “But there ain’t no way to justify. He said, ‘I got nothing here. That’s a long time ago. I ain’t doing nothing.’ He said it’s a hemorrhoid. I got nothing else to go on. Nothing. Yeah we’re gonna have to cut him loose here.”
This incident happened back in 2013, but body-cam video of the killing of 51-year-old Oakland resident Hernan Jaramillo, was just released.
The Oakland police were called to Herman’s residence by Hernan’s sister around 1:40am on July 8, 2013 . She reported that noise coming from Herman’s room gave her the impression that something serious was happening in his room. She thought someone was trying to kill her brother.
Police arrived at the residence and tried getting Herman out of the room. After several attempts, the officers gained access the room, confronted and arrested Mr. Jaramillo. According to court papers, the city attorney said that Jaramillo resisted police commands 20 times when they took him outside and tried to put him in their car. At this point, Mr. Jaramillo was not a suspect
While trying to get the man into the car, one officer, Ira Anderson, said he noticed Mr. Jaramillo’s handcuff was done in the front instead of behind him.
“I grabbed him by the shirt,” Anderson stated. “I brought him away from the car … did a leg sweep and put him on the sidewalk.”
It was there on the sidewalk where Mr. Jaramillo cried for his life as officers restrained him. One witness said a police officer had his knee in Jaramillo’s back. “I can’t breathe,” Jaramillo cried, “They’re killing me!” This was said multiple times.
“You’re gonna stay here until you relax,” one officer is heard telling Jaramillo. Later in the video the officer said, “Sir, we’re not killing you.”
When medical personnel arrived, Jaramillo was found handcuffed and unresponsive.
He obviously thought sexually molesting and raping women in a low-income Oklahoma City neighborhood would go unnoticed. Who would believe these women, he must have thought. But their voices were heard and the judge and jury agreed, sending Daniel Holtzclaw to prison for the rest of his life.
Jurors had recommended that Daniel Holtzclaw be sentenced to 263 years in prison for preying on women in 2013 and 2014. District Judge Timothy Henderson agreed, said Holtzclaw will serve the terms consecutively and denied his request for an appeal bond.
Holtzclaw waived his right to remain in custody in the county jail for 10 days, instead opting to be taken directly to prison. Defense attorney Scott Adams said Holtzclaw will appeal.
“It is what it is,” Adams said. “It wasn’t a surprise.”
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater had strong words for Holtzclaw, who was convicted last month on 18 counts, including four first-degree rape counts as well as forcible oral sodomy, sexual battery, procuring lewd exhibition and second-degree rape. Holtzclaw was acquitted on 18 other counts.
“I think people need to realize that this is not a law-enforcement officer that committed these crimes. This is a rapist who masqueraded as a law-enforcement officer,” Prater said after the sentencing. “If he was a true law enforcement officer he would have upheld his duty to protect those citizens rather than victimize them.”
No, the Grand jury did not indict Texas State Trooper Brian Encinia on any wrong doing in Sandra Bland’s death, but he was indicted on a perjury charge, for falsifying information about why Bland was stopped and removed from her vehicle.
Special prosecutor Shawn McDonald said Wednesday outside the courthouse that “the indictment was issued in reference to the reasoning that (Texas State Trooper Brian Encinia) removed her from her vehicle.”
He explained the grand jury didn’t believe Encinia’s statement that he took her from the car she was driving so he could conduct a safer traffic investigation.
The penalty for perjury, a Class A misdemeanor, is up to a year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said after the indictment was announced that it will begin termination proceedings against the trooper.
Twenty eight year old Sandra Bland was arrested and jailed for allegedly not using a turn signal in Texas on July 10th. She was found dead in her cell three days later.
Now, after spending 8 whole hours reviewing police account that Bland hung herself with a plastic bag, a Grand Jury in Texas agreed that the obviously very strong piece of plastic was all the 28 year old woman needed.
“After reviewing all the evidence in the death of Sandra Bland, a Waller grand jury did not return an indictment in the death of Bland, nor were any indictments returned against any employee of the Waller County Jail,” said Darrell Jordan, a special prosecutor handling the case.
The grand jury will reconvene in January to consider other indictments.
Bland, an African-American woman, was found dead in her cell three days after she was arrested for allegedly failing to use her turn signal on July 10. She was 28.
Officials in Waller County, Texas, have said she hanged herself with a plastic bag. Her family and others have questioned that account.
Those questions continued Monday night.
“We are not going to allow what they have done in a limited, secret capacity to prevent us from doing what we need to do to get answers for the family,” Bland family attorney Cannon Lambert told CNN affiliate KPRC.
