Cops handcuff man for ‘obstructing sidewalk,' then repeatedly punch and kick him in the testicles and face

Image
A frightening video was released, prompting demands for the resignation of the Hammond police chief. It shows many cops slamming boots and knees into a man's face and neck as other officers kick and punch him mercilessly. The victim, Kendrick Ratliff, was shackled the whole time and unable to defend himself, much alone constitute a danger to the cops. Seth Stoughton, an attorney and former police officer who teaches at the University of South Carolina School of Law, appeared before the Hammond City Council last week, alleging that the video of Ratliff's beating is "among the most egregious uses of force" he has ever studied. The event occurred on Dec. 6, 2017, and despite the graphic footage, FBI inquiry, and expert evidence, not a single cop involved has received even a wrist slap. Indeed, one of them was raised to the rank of chief. The video, which was released to local ABC station WBRZ, portrays gruesome and unlawful behaviour. The police chief and the city have r

Police deny torturing a guy to death over a lost vehicle battery in Shedrack Ochoche.

The Federal Capital Territory, FCT Police Command has disputed that cops murdered Shedrach Ochoche for allegedly stealing a vehicle battery from a Chinese lady known as Madam Pimpim. Mr Ochoche, a native of Benue State's Agatu Local Government Area and a former employee of a Chinese restaurant in Abuja's Jahi neighbourhood, was tortured to death on January 17 after being suspected of carrying away the batteries.  According to the DAILY POST, Ochoche, a restaurant janitor, quit before his suspected murder due to the organization's failure to pay his wages for many months. According to a notice published by a famous human rights lawyer in Abuja, Napoleon Otache, the dead resigned from the Chinese woman's restaurant after being due to more than three months' wages. He stated that five days after Ochoche quit the cleaning job, the Chinese lady complained about her vehicle battery being gone and proceeded to the Mabushi Police Division in Abuja to make a complaint, which

Indignation as Cop Who Murdered Unarmed Teen Gets Released from Prison Early

In October 2018, four years after shooting and killing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke was convicted guilty of second-degree murder and sixteen counts of aggravated violence with a firearm. He was sentenced to only six years and nine months in jail in January 2019. While the punishment is obviously lenient in light of the multitude of offences committed, what little justice was being served came to an end this week when officials revealed that Van Dyke will be freed early after completing less than half of his term. Now, campaigners are pushing for the federal prosecution of this murdered officer. "You've got a white guy who killed a child on tape, shooting him 16 times in cold blood," neighbourhood leader William Calloway said. "And the federal government has made no attempt to intervene. That is unjust. That is a kind of racism. We have to call it by its true name." Calloway and other activists are now pushing for the

Three Cops Arrested for Shooting 25 Rounds into a Crowd of Unknown Individuals, Killing an 8-Year-Old Girl

When Fanta Bility, 8, and her family went to a high school football game in August, they had no idea their greatest fear would come true that night. Unfortunately, that is precisely what occurred, courtesy to a bunch of trigger-happy police officers who used excessive force. After trying to avoid responsibility by charging two adolescent lads with Fanta's murder — despite the fact that she was killed by police weapons — the three policemen who opened fire that day have been charged. Brian Devaney, 41; Sean Dolan, 25; and Devon Smith, 33, were charged with voluntary manslaughter, manslaughter, and reckless endangerment this week. As expected, the officers' police union-appointed counsel contested the allegations, stating that the policemen who opened fire into a throng of innocent people were basically heroes. "These three policemen responded to the sound of gunfire and risked their lives to safeguard that neighbourhood," said a statement from McMonagle, Perri, McHugh,

Accused ex-NFL player strangled by cops after cops slammed his handcuffed head

Image
A harrowing video released on Facebook by a former NFL player prompted community uproar and resulted in the victim, Desmond Marrow, demanding justice in 2018. Years later, his pleas for justice have been met with a settlement and the responsibility of the officer who assaulted him. Marrow earned a record-breaking payout this week. According to CBS 46, the settlement is a record sum for a non-fatal officer-involved use of force lawsuit in Henry County, according to Marrow's lawyers, L. Chris Stewart and Dianna Lee of Stewart Miller Simmons Trial Attorneys and Andrea Boyd of the Price Boyd Law Firm. "We are thrilled that Henry County has opted to settle Desmond Marrow's lawsuit for a record sum for a non-death case. Notably, the officer who strangled Mr Marrow pled guilty to battery, resigned his law enforcement certification, and will never work in law enforcement again – two very unusual outcomes in instances involving the use of force. "We acknowledge that the majori

Paraplegic man dragged from car by his hair by cops who investigated

Clifford Owensby of Dayton, Ohio, discovered the American police state's willingness to go to violent and oppressive lengths to enforce window tint extortion laws. Owensby, who had done no crime, was singled out by police, attacked, and then escorted away due to the arbitrarily dark tint on his window tint. Days later, police revealed body camera video demonstrating exactly how nasty they are ready to be over the blackness of a man's windows — his skin as well. Owensby filed a complaint with the Dayton Police Department's (DPD) Professional Standards Bureau, which opened an investigation in October. Now, after three months of "investigating," police have concluded that officers committed no wrongdoing. The investigation's report concluded that Owensby's allegations that officers threatened him with violence and mocked him were "unfounded," despite the fact that their violence was captured on video. Although the officer's "pulling of Mr.

Rivers mother wants the corpse of her son slain by an IGP squad and requests the prosecution of police

Victoria Agori, 51, has petitioned the police to disclose the remains of her son, Daniel Agori, 21, who was purportedly shot and killed in 2019 by a team of the Inspector-General of Police. In December 2021, the National Human Rights Commission announced the granting of financial compensation to the families of 27 victims of police abuse. Mrs Agori, 51, one of the recipients, said that true justice for her would be the release of her son's remains for burial and the prosecution of those responsible for his death. While she expressed gratitude to the panel for the compensation, she said that the path to justice was difficult, noting that she submitted several letters and petitions without receiving a response. "I petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, the Attorney-General of the Federation, and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN," she said. "I also wrote to the Commissioner of Police in Rivers State, the governors of Rivers and Bayelsa states, a human

Unannounced Cop Executes Dad in Front of Wife and Kids

James Williams, 46, spent his last seconds on Earth trying to figure out who shot him at his family's New Year's party. The family would eventually learn that a Canton police officer took aim as Williams stood on the opposite side of his private fence, in his own back yard, and shot and killed this unarmed father of six. His wife and children stood by as he took his last breaths. Following widespread public outrage, police released the body camera film, which proves that the policeman did not give Williams any warning before killing him in front of his wife and children. According to his wife, Marquetta Williams, they had a history of firing celebration rounds from their legally owned AR-15 each year with the rest of their neighbours. While this is a reckless activity since the bullet might inflict serious harm when it returns to earth, many people shoot off firearms on July 4th and New Year's Eve - and they are not apprehended by authorities. However, as seen by body camer

Cop Speeds Through Neighborhood, Jumps Sidewalk, and Kills Innocent Man—Police Officer Not Charged

This week's release of body camera video demonstrates what happens when overconfident officers get behind the wheel and drive as though they are invincible. Their reckless and hazardous cowboy techniques have the potential to and will result in the pain and death of innocent people. Michael Wayne Jackson's family and friends recently learned this lesson the hard way when officer Orlando Hernandez leapt his vehicle onto the sidewalk and murdered the 62-year-old. Although the incident occurred on December 4, 2021, the body camera video was just recently revealed. Hernandez and his colleague officer Anthony Aranda were travelling at speeds over 100 miles per hour in their cruiser as they assisted another cop in pursuing individuals who were allegedly engaged in a carjacking. Given that the suspects were on foot, there was no justification to drive 80-100 mph through a residential area. Despite these data, Hernandez drove erratically and with just one hand on the wheel as he sped t

Cop Shoots Through 6-Foot-Tall Fence, Executes Father in His Backyard on New Year's Eve for Celebrating the Second Amendment

James Williams, 46, spent his last seconds on Earth trying to figure out who shot him at his family's New Year's party. He would die in front of his family in his living room, his last words being, "I've been shot." Though they were unaware, the gunshot was fired from a police officer's rifle from the opposite side of the family's six-foot-tall privacy fence that encircled their backyard. Blood streaks remain on the living room floor where Williams was assassinated in front of his wife and children. They had been celebrating the new year only seconds before. According to his wife, Marquetta Williams, they had a history of firing celebration rounds from their legally owned AR-15 each year with the rest of their neighbours. While this is a reckless activity since the bullet might inflict serious harm when it returns to earth, many people shoot off firearms on July 4th and New Year's Eve - and they are not apprehended by authorities.

Compensation for police violence victims

Image
The National Human Rights Commission's (NHRC) panel's recent award of N147 million in compensation to 27 victims of police brutality is a positive step toward healing and achieving justice for the victims. Additionally, it will contribute to the reduction of police violence and impunity in Nigeria. The panel's ruling, which looked into human rights breaches committed by the former Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and other police units, demonstrated that Nigerians would no longer accept cruel and humiliating treatment, notably extrajudicial executions, by security forces. Mr Anthony Ojukwu, the Commission's Executive Secretary, said clearly, "By paying victims, the NHRC seeks to alter the narrative of impunity." The commission is prepared to give redress for violations of Nigerians' rights. Wherever a breach occurs, a remedy must be instituted. The panel has embarked on a quest to restore human dignity." We concur with the allegation and praise the p

On His Way to Fight, the Police Chief Randomly Shoots an Innocent bystander in the Parking Lot.

Kelecia Mayo, 22, is struggling for her life in Little Rock, Arkansas, after being seriously injured by a gunshot fired from the police chief's handgun. Police shot her just for being in the wrong location at the wrong time. Chief Keith Humphrey of the Little Rock Police Department was placed on administrative leave Saturday after cellphone footage showed the absolutely careless shooting. According to authorities, the chief was responding to an altercation between a man and a woman in a parking lot on New Year's Eve. During the altercation, Taz Hayes, 29, grabbed a revolver and started shooting wildly across the parking lot. Humphrey was patrolling as part of an "all hands on deck" strategy when he saw the mayhem unfold. "On New Year's Eve, Little Rock Police Chief Keith Humphrey, like he has done in the past, used an all-hands-on-deck strategy to patrol and ordered command personnel to patrol the city," Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott Jr. tweeted Saturday

SARS, the once infamous police unit now known as the Rapid Response Squad, and its commander, Ogundola, are terrorising residents of the Ekiti region, according to reliable sources.

CSP Marcus Ogundola, head of the Ekiti State Police Command's Rapid Response Squad (RRS) unit, and unit operators have been charged with illegal executions, arrests, conversion of suspects' property to personal use, and demand of "outrageous bond amounts in return for people's release." According to SaharaReporters, Ogundola was the leader of the infamous Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force until it was abolished last year after the #EndSARS demonstrations. SARS was infamous for its violence, extrajudicial executions, and violations of human rights. On October 11, 2020, Mohammed Adamu, the former Inspector General of Police, announced the disbandment of the police unit in response to widespread outrage against the police unit's crimes. According to people interviewed by SaharaReporters, the present RRS team is comprised up of former SARS agents. "They are making a killing in police uniforms by extorting Ekiti State youths in the
