Jackson filed a lawsuit this month, seeking $1 million for the horrifying bodily invasion conducted by these sadistic cops. Showing how sick these monsters are who conducted this gross violation of Jackson’s rights got word of the lawsuit, the department’s lawyers issued defending their actions.
“…defendants times acted reasonably and with faith belief that their actions were lawful and not in violation of any federal or state constitutional right,” wrote assistant city lawyer Patrick Blood.
Rightfully so, Jackson and his legal team disagree.
“Mr. Jackson was involuntarily restrained by the defendants hospital to facilitate the illegal colonoscopy to which he was then subjected,” the lawsuit states.
Police stopped Jackson that fateful day in October because they claim he activate his far enough a turn. This method of policing is predatory and allows police up random reasons they feel are suspicious.
During the stop, police found bag of marijuana on Jackson reaction of events his horrifying treatment.
As the stop progressed, the “expert” officers on the scene claimed that Jackson’s posture indicated that he’d likely hid something in his rectum. Chaos quickly ensued.
When police began kidnapping Jackson for having pot and claiming he was hiding drugs in his rectum, Jackson resisted. He was then tasered, beaten, pepper-sprayed, and had a spit mask placed over his head before cops dragged him into St. Joseph’s hospital in Syracuse.
While hospital, Jackson was begging with police and doctors the mask off, as he said he was unable to breathe. But his complaints fell largely on deaf ears.
Instead, Jackson was taken an X-Ray for the non-existent drugs in his anus. , the X-Ray found nothing. where the abuse should have stopped. It did not.
After the X-Ray find anything, police just knew that it had to be missing something pushed for a to perform a surgery called a sigmoidoscopy—in which an 8″ tube is inserted into the patients' rectum—to search Jackson’s insides for the non-existent drugs. The court granted the order.
“I told police: not be doing that. Not while there,” Dr. William Paolo said of the requested search, noting entirely unnecessary x-ray was sufficient to rule out any doubts. But police care ordered the medical staff to conduct the procedure anyway.
Naturally, Jackson resisted and refused the surgery, but he was then surrounded by 8 cops who held him down as he was anesthetized. When he came to, he was released and in noticeable pain but had no idea what had happened. Jackson described seeing blood in his underwear which made him to the where he the surgery.
“I felt tampered with,” he told the newspaper.
“It’s crazy. It’s over , by far,” said Hermann Walz, a longtime criminal attorney, and professor at College of Criminal Justice. “You’re marijuana and cocaine? It’s extreme. If they wanted him open at his stomach, be OK, too?”
After the surgery, the abuse continued. Days after being forcibly sodomized torturous event, Jackson received the bill for the procedure the hospital was threatening him over to collections if he didn’t immediately pay $4,595.12.
“The is cuckoo nuts to me,” said the suspect’s , Charles Keller. “What country are we living in?”
Sadly, question is America….
“I don’t believe anybody should have any procedure not deemed necessary,” Dr. Paolo said. “If foreign body a threat to the patient, then there’s no medical necessity. Doctors an agent of the state and not obligated to become an agent of the state.”
Other doctors agree.
“Police can’t have citizen a car for them,” Dr. Charles Pilcher, a Washington-based doctor who has researched , told Syracuse.com.
“A physician … made an agent of the state for of law enforcement; if an activity being performed isn’t advancing the health care of a patient, then the physician has no business performing that activity,” Pilcher wrote 2016 American College of Emergency Physicians newsletter.
Indeed, incident—from end—should never happen ostensible land of the free. For allegedly not turning on his fast enough, this innocent man was kidnapped, a hospital, to undergo multiple invasive medical procedures—all by claim to “protect” society—all in to prosecute a low-level misdemeanor “crime.”
To think be some isolated incident. . The Project has been covering this scenario for years. Countless people forcibly sodomized, even , as police non-existent drugs. If the courage so, our archives which detail these horrific events.
The time the war on drugs is now.
