'I can't breathe,' say cops accused of murdering an innocent father as he walked home.

Manuel Ellis, a father of two, was killed by police in March 2020. His sister, Monet Carter-Mixon, set out on a mission to expose the cops who killed her brother. She found a video that contradicted the official story and the officers involved were about to be cleared. The evidence came to light during a protest for George Floyd in her town, where she was trying to raise awareness of her brother's death, which happened there, not in another state. The police claim that Ellis randomly attacked two cops and was killed while doing so.

But the family says this is not what his brother would have done and the video contradicts the police narrative. The officers involved have been cleared.  "The Story of the Death of Manuel Ellis," by Monica Carter- Mixon, will air on March 3, 2020, at 10 p.m. ET on ABC News Channel 10. Prosecutors: Ellis's only actions appeared defensive in nature as he tried to shield his face from the police.

Prosecutors would admit that he never fought back, and never struck the officers. Ellis was left face down and hog-tied with the spit hood on his head for nine minutes. The Pierce County medical examiner later ruled Ellis' death a homicide due to "hypoxia," or a lack of oxygen. This is the first time the Washington State Attorney General has criminally charged officers with unlawful use of deadly force in a police-related death. The family of Ellis's sister relentlessly fought to clear her brother's name, and the case went to trial in Seattle.

The judge ruled in favor of the family, and two officers were charged with murder and one was charged with first-degree manslaughter. The case will go to trial on a murder charge, which could lead to prison time.

Chauvin was just the eighth cop convicted of murder since 2005, thanks to a system that encourages killer cops.

Officer Derek Chauvin was convicted on all three charges against him in the killing of George Floyd. Since 2005, American cops have killed over 15,000 citizens while on duty. Of the 1,127 people killed by police in 2020, only 277 of them were suspected of a violent offense. The majority of police killings involve calls in which there was no crime or the suspect was only suspected of non-violent offenses. The cops who killed Elijah McClain, Andrew Finch, Kameron Prescott, Daniel Shaver, Charles Roundtree Jr., Stephon Clark, and countless other completely innocent individuals — all got away with it. This is not okay. The verdict is a major victory for police accountability activists and people were literally crying with joy in the streets of Minneapolis. It's just one battle in a war Americans have been losing for decades. The fight for justice will continue to be a long, long way from a victory for justice for all Americans and police accountability is a long way to go, as this verdict shows. The New York City Council removed qualified immunity for bad cops by removing qualified immunity last month. New Mexico followed suit last week. In Maryland, State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby recently announced the war on drugs is over in Baltimore and she is making it a permanent policy to dismiss all criminal charges for the possession of drugs. Since Mosby's policy was implemented a year ago and 1,400 victimless crimes were not prosecuted, crime went down, a lot. Compared to this same time last year, violent crime in the city has dropped 20% while property crime fell a massive 35% compared to the same period before this policy was enacted. Since there have only been 8 cops convicted of murder out of 15,000 killings in the last 15 years, there have been only 8 murders out of 5,000 in the past 15 years. Since the policy has been in place, 911 calls for drug use, prostitution, and public intoxication fell by 33%. Since there has been only one murder conviction out of 7,000 since 2002.

Good Cop Fired for Exposing Police Brutality As Bad Cop Defended for Saying He Wants to ‘Kill All’ Protesters

Those who are listening to the ever-expanding dictatorship within the land of the free know that the system is about up in such how that it protects bad cops while punishing the great ones.

Nothing highlights this truth quite just like the following two cops.

One cop defended justice and easily asked for his fellow cops to try to an equivalent while another cop took to social media on multiple occasions and advocated murdering Black Lives, Matter protesters.

Spoiler alert: it wasn't the one who involved murdering innocent protesters.

On June 30, Colorado Springs policeman Sergeant Keith Wrede was found to possess regularly commented on videos of BLM protesters with the phrase "KILL THEM ALL!" Wrede was found employing a sock puppet account to espouse the involves genocide also as his personal account in a clear plan to get his message to as many of us as possible.

When his department acknowledged, Wrede received a measly five-day suspension and a reassignment.

This cop involved murdering people for protesting police brutality and he wasn't fired.

Not only did he keep his job but Colorado Springs captain Vince Niski actually defended the officer, and offered up his praise for him.

"It decided that the comments were made off-duty out of frustration and there was no indication of any physical action or intent to cause harm. i'm in no way minimizing Sergeant Wrede's words. His comments were unacceptable, have damaged our relationship with members of our community, and fell in need of our standards," Niski wrote.

After downplaying the cop's murderous words, the chief went further, defending the officer's character by claiming the person who advocated the wholesale slaughter of thousands of individuals is "a good policeman ."

"While his statements were harmful and reprehensible," Niski continued, "I cannot deprive the community of an honest policeman and his services due to an isolated incident of a mistake in judgment. We hope that you simply can accept our apology and be assured that the CSPD and Sgt. Wrede will still faithfully serve the general public ."

As the New Civil Rights Movement points out, "Considering that Wrede publicly voiced a desire to kill all Black racial justice protesters peacefully demonstration their First Amendment rights to free speech while opposing system racism and police brutality, we're unsure why the general public, Black people and other citizens of Colorado Springs should feel assured that Wrede will treat them fairly."

In stark contrast to officer Wrede's comments, Greensboro local department officer Williams took to social media and involved fellow officers to talk out against injustices.

Williams went viral with a TikTok video speaking about the murder of George Floyd while pleading together with his fellow officers to not stay silent once they witness their brothers in blue committing crimes.

Williams encouraged his fellow cops to try to to the proper thing and rather than honoring or promoting him, Greensboro local department suspending him immediately.

Two months later and therefore the department has now terminated him because they claim that his social media video may be a violation of department policy.

To be clear, Williams never condemned police or offered up anything offensive in the least.

The family of Williams has since decided to require action against the department and are posing for your help to urge there.

As people still protest within the streets, the tone-deaf establishment ignores issues like this.

The idea that a cop wasn't fired after repeatedly calling for the slaughter of innocent protesters on social media while another cop was fired for calling for peace should shock the conscience.

It should also help to wake those up who don't understand the very fact that policing within the land of the free is in an epic crisis.

Please share this text together with your friends and family who could also be unaware of this most glaring problem.

Cop Charged for Opening Fire on 3 Journalists With Rubber Bullets for No Reason

More than one times throughout the twentieth century, America alongside 195 different international locations ratified the Geneva convention to come up with the money for protections to civilians in places of violence and battle.

Newshounds are protected beneath this worldwide humanitarian settlement in opposition to direct attacks unless and for such time as they take an instantaneous component in hostilities.

As we've got watched during the last numerous months but, American cops apparently did no longer get the memo.

After the onset of protests from the death of George Floyd, there had been limitless instances wherein law enforcement officials were recorded on video targeting reporters.

The moves of one cop in Detroit, however, were so egregious that he changed into eventually charged this week — nearly months after he attacked three reporters who work for MLive.

On may also 31, Cpl.

In line with the prosecutor’s workplace of Kym worth, the 3 newshounds diagnosed themselves as press to police.

“reporters have a right and a responsibility to be at the scene of breaking information, without being focused.

All three of the journalists have been struck with the bullets.

“The evidence indicates that those 3 reporters were leaving the protest location and that there has been almost no one else on the road where they have been.

All three of the newshounds sustained injuries with Hester sustaining the maximum extreme accidents to her face, neck, legs, and arms, according to the discharge.

Detroit Police chief James Craig spoke back to Debono’s expenses on Monday, announcing “our officials have replied very as it should be, so this must no longer replicate, as an agency, that this one incident defines how we manipulate our protests.

That is actually not the case, however, as TFTP pronounced on a couple of officials who were visibly beating the hell out of a lady across the equal time, for doing not anything aside from filming police.

According to the release, Debono’s fees of felonious assault incorporates a maximum penalty of four years in prison.

Given the character of his attack — an unprovoked rubber bullet melee on reporters — Debono must obtain the most punishment.

Taxpayers to Be Held Liable After Cops Grope Woman, Beat The Hell Out of Her for Pulling Away

As the reverberation chamber from the police theological rationalist group slopes up their enemy of dissent publicity, it is getting more earnestly for them to deny the uncontrolled brutality did against peaceful serene dissidents in the course of the most recent month since George Floyd's passing. As the accompanying case delineates, the counter dissent group ought to most likely begin contradicting this brutality as it will before long begin to hit them in the wallet. Presently, the two ladies who were manhandled in that video have recorded a claim as the cops who assaulted them still can't seem to be considered responsible which implies that obligation is currently given to the citizens. The government claim recorded Friday in the U. Basically, individuals who remain out past the time limit are being kettled by cops who don't permit them to leave and afterward are tear-gassed, pepper showered, beaten with twirly doos, and afterward captured. 

This strategy is exceptionally questionable on the grounds that various cases have caught cops manhandling individuals who are blameless, including the press, and spectators who are not in any event, taking an interest in the fights. On the off chance that you think remaining out past time limitation is some way or another wrong, recollect early May when the traditional was doing likewise to show against the unlawful lockdowns. There is no distinction in these two dissent bunches, with the exception of the instigators who are obviously not part of the tranquil dissent bunches. By and by, the individuals who remain out past time limit have ended up subject to sickening treatment up to and incorporating being shot in the face with elastic slugs and nerve gas explosives. 

In the accompanying video, we see Westfield who is going to be arrested for being out past check-in time. As the cops endeavor to take her in, one of them seems to snatch her close to her bosoms, making her split away. 

Twitter client Weave Holley tweeted the video out with the accompanying inscription, which 
summarizes the circumstance precisely.

‘I Can’t Breathe’: Video Shows Cops Kneel on Motionless Man’s Neck — Until He Dies

After the death of Eric Garner in 2014 shook the nation, the phrase “I can’t breathe” has become a chilling symbol for violence doled out at the hands of the state. TFTP has reported on multiple instances in which entirely peaceful and often innocent people have muttered those words just before police officers squeeze the last bit of life from their bodies. Tragically, as the video below shows us, this is still happening. Subscribe to more videos:

‘All of Them Sat On This Man’: Cops Gave False Story About Floyd’s Death Despite Testimony from Their Own

Following the death of George Floyd, officials with the Minneapolis Police Department were evasive about the actions taken by the officers involved with his arrest. In initial statements to the press, the police department only said that Floyd appeared to be suffering from “medical distress” during the arrest and that he was then taken to a nearby hospital where he passed away.
However, there was no mention of the very likely possibility that Floyd’s “medical distress” was caused by his encounter with the officers who arrested him, in which they all knelt on him for nearly ten minutes. One of the officers, Derek Chauvin, had his knee on Floyd’s next for the length of a viral video which has now sparked protests around the world.
When local police made their initial statement about Floyd’s death, millions of people around the world had already seen the footage of the incident, yet for some reason, their statement disregarded the information revealed in the video.
Eventually, as unrest in the city began to spread, police officials provided numerous updates to their original statement, where they slowly verified facts that had already been well-known to the public and the press. However, in the days following Floyd’s death, the Minneapolis Police Department continued to release incorrect information about the incident that intended to take the blame away from the officers by suggesting that Floyd attempted to resist arrest.
Later, security camera footage that was released by a nearby business showed Floyd peacefully obeying the officer’s commands, contradicting the statements from police.
Earlier this month, Minneapolis Council Member Jeremy Schroeder expressed dismay with the misinformation that was released by the police department in the wake of the killing.
“It is deeply concerning that the information initially circulated by the Minneapolis Police Department early Tuesday morning did not fully reflect the horrifying circumstances surrounding George Floyd’s death. The original news release did not in my view accurately convey the facts or the role of the officers in this tragedy,” Schroeder said, according to the Star Tribune.
Police departments have large streams of information coming in about all of the encounters that officers have with the public, through dash cameras, body cameras, and dispatchers. In theory, all of this information should leave police departments more knowledgeable on these incidents than the press, so there is really no honest excuse to be releasing such incorrect information hours after an event happened. Police officials have blamed the “fluid” situation for their poor communication, but critics argue that they had plenty of time to sort out the facts before their first public statement about the case.
This week, some of the audio and transcripts for the 911 calls regarding the incident have been released, further revealing how much the police department knew about the killing. In one of the recordings, a police dispatcher who was watching live video feeds from the scene called into police supervisors to warn them about the excessive force that they were witnessing.
In the call the dispatcher can be heard saying, “I don’t know, you can call me a snitch if you want to but we have the cameras up for (squad) 320’s call, and…I don’t know if they had to use force or not, but they got something out of the back of the squad, and all of them sat on this man, so I don’t know if they needed you or not, but they haven’t said anything to me yet..”
“Yeah, they haven’t said anything yet…just a takedown, which doesn’t count, but I’ll find out,” the supervisor responded.
“No problem, we don’t get to ever see it so when we see it we’re just like, well, that looks a little different, but…” the dispatcher said.
The supervisor then cut the dispatcher off and stopped the call, saying only, “Sounds good, bye.”
In a phone recording released this afternoon, a Minneapolis Police dispatcher watching a video feed of officers holding George Floyd down called a Sergeant to report it. The officers hadn't done so. (The knife reference is an unrelated call.)
779 people are talking about this

This call was moments after Floyd’s death, yet the department still chose to run with the “medical distress” narrative. It was completely dishonest and exactly the reason people are mad. This is not a bad apple at work here, this is a coordinated effort, denying facts, to paint a picture that favors a police narrative. It is wrong, it is dishonest, and it is the impetus behind the anger in the United States that is directed at police today.
