Innocent Business Man Kidnapped by Cops for “Jogging While Black”—Thrown in Jail

Fitting the outline within the land of the free, is an only too common phrase employed by public servants to    justify the horrific abuse of innocent people.

The abuse turns deadly, and these innocent people are killed, permanently injured, or lose their freedom.

As the video below illustrates, being entirely innocent is not any defense against your subsequent kidnapping and assault.

Mathias Ometu may be a successful insurance adjuster with no criminal past.

All that has now changed after incompetent cops claimed he "Fit the description" of a criminal and moved in to assault, kidnap and cage him.

The interaction was caught on bystander video and shows a compliant Ometu standing peacefully by police after being placed in handcuffs.

"The only thing he did wasn't give his name. He was just jogging," witness Jennifer Rodriguez, who filmed the incident, says within the footage.

"I can't believe this is often happening right here," he boyfriend, Victor Maas, chimes in as sirens blare within the background.

"His crime was jogging while black. They made up any reason to harass this guy," Maas wrote on Facebook regarding the footage.

According to police, officers stopped Ometu and told him that they had "Reasonable suspicion to believe" he "Matched the outline of an alleged strangulation family violence incident," the report said.

The person police were trying to find was Darren Anthony Smith Jr. Smith has hair, Ometu is bald.

Ometu also features a full large beard while Smith is clean shaven.

Mistaking these two for every other was a transparent act of incompetence.

Up is a 2017 mugshot of Darren Anthony Smith Jr. a violence suspect w/ robbery warrant SAPD was checking out Tuesday.

Down is Mathias Ometu, the person police stopped and say refused to spot himself.

Ometu is now facing 2 felonies for assault on police.

When police detained Ometu, he exercised his 5th Amendment right to stay silent.

He refused to offer police his name or the other information about himself.

Not only is that this a clearly established constitutional right, but an individual being detained or questioned by police within the state of Texas isn't required to supply identifying information, the Texas legal code states.

Police used Ometu's constitutional rights as a reason to escalate.

The police report said Ometu refused to offer his name and date of birth after several requests and his "Demeanor became aggressive." However, video shows the innocent man standing calmly outside of the cruiser for over six minutes.

It wasn't until these armed men attempted to kidnap Ometu did any confrontation happen.

Ometu refused to urge within the patrol vehicle and was then "Placed within the patrol vehicle" after a "Long struggle," the report said, "Using only open hand techniques," consistent with police.

The "Open hand techniques" were apparently applied to Ometu's throat as we will hear him tell police they're choking him as he's shoved into the rear of the cruiser.

What's more, the sole "Resistance" Ometu appears to say is sticking his legs out so police can't close the door.

"You're choking me. You're choking me. You're choking me," Ometu yells because the cops shove him within the car while handcuffed behind his back.

Remember, before police kidnapping him, Ometu had committed no crime and wasn't required to offer police any information.

He was complying with their orders the whole time before they moved to kidnap him for no reason.

Many people will defend the officers during this instance because Ometu didn't give his information.

Flexing one's constitutional rights isn't a reason to arrest someone.

Adding to the utter incompetence which encompassed Ometu's arrest is that the incontrovertible fact that after he was thrown during a cage, he was assigned a lawyer - who died in 2011.

Naturally, the police defended their actions, releasing a press release about the danger of things when handling the suspect.

They did not mention that the "Suspect" wasn't Ometu.

"The suspect fled before police arrived, but the victim provided officers with the suspect's information and officers also obtained information that the suspect was also wanted for a felony robbery warrant," the statement read. "The individual contacted was in close proximity to the decision and he matched the physical and clothing description provided by the victim. That was the sole reason he was stopped and questioned because the officers legitimately believed he was the wanted suspect."

The statement also said the department is conscious of "Several videos of the incident that are posted online" which the incident "Will be reviewed administratively to make sure all policies were followed."

The fact that Ometu was innocent didn't save him from facing charges.

He was subsequently arrested and charged with assault on a politician .

He was held in jail for 2 days before friends and family came up with the $20,000 to bail him out.

"'You can't just arrest someone for love or money ," Victor Ometu, Mathias' father said.

"I imagine he's scared. He's never been in trouble before."

In Anambra, three people were killed as they clashed with the police.
