Man Calls 911 After Being Shot in the Arm, a Cop Arrives, Runs Him Over, and Kills Him – No Charges Are Filed

Image
After being shot in the arm a year earlier, on June 13, 2021, Eric Cole, age 42, appropriately dialled 911 for assistance. However, the police were the first to arrive on the site, and Cole got no assistance. In actuality, he got the exact opposite, which proved fatal. The incompetence of one of his officers, Amanda Rosales, which resulted in Cole's death was described by Police Chief Lee Graf as an "accident." Even if it wasn't intentional, dashcam footage reveals that the incident was entirely preventable. Officer Rosales drove her cruiser on top of Eric Cole, who was bleeding from a gunshot wound to the forearm and lying on the ground. Graf said, "This was a mistake." This does not imply that it is acceptable. Evidently, a grand jury fell for the story hook, line, and sinker, and this week, after an "investigation," criminal charges were dropped. The grand jury found that the circumstances surrounding Mr Cole's death were unfortunate but not

A report of a man allegedly trespassing resulted in a brutal assault by a police dog, prompting an inquiry against three Woodson Terrace police officers. The department is defending the officers, and the office of the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney has intervened. Around 7:15 a.m., police got a report about a guy allegedly trespassing and refusing to leave a business on Interstate 70. When the police came, they say the guy was under the influence of drugs. One of the business's employees recorded the event, and the guy did not seem to be a danger at all. At most, he refused to be handcuffed, claiming innocence. He never assaulted any police and was completely restrained and surrounded by them. According to police, when they approached the guy, he attempted to flee into the street, forcing officers to stop traffic and arrest him. At this point in the video, the guy is face-down on the hood of the police vehicle. While the two police try to arrest him, a third officer arrives

  An investigation is underway  after a viral video captured  metropolis   cops  mistaking an innocent dad for a criminal and kidnapping him  before  his family. The unnamed man was humiliated  ahead  of countless other mall patrons as he was dragged through the food court in handcuffs and out the front doors. “If you don’t want  to urge  arrested or beaten by cops, don’t do anything wrong,” is  one in every of   the foremost  oft-repeated phrases by  those that  constantly apologize for the  despotism .  it's  also constantly proven wrong.  the subsequent  case is  one in all  many  samples of  this phrase being proven wrong. In a video posted to Twitter on Sunday, an innocent  Negro  is seen getting placed in handcuffs and temporarily kidnapped by police as he ate lunch  together with his  family. According to police, they were  trying to find  a  man  who drove a black truck and  once they  spotted this dad eating  together with his  family, they claim he fit  the outline . As t

The real story of Rosa Parks sixty-five Years Later: What You learned in college is wrong

Unjust laws will remain unjust until  they're  disobeyed by good people. Had brave individuals throughout history not risked imprisonment or worse to challenge tyrannical, racist, and immoral laws, society today, would be much less free — this rule  is very  true for black people in America. On December 1, 1955,  Rosa Parks  made history by disobeying an unjust law that required people of color to yield their seats on the bus to the  race . When the  busman  told  the complete  row of black people  to maneuver  to  the rear  of the bus because a  white person  boarded, everyone complied,  aside from  Parks. Parks was arrested and convicted for failing to obey the driver’s seat assignments. The events following her arrest, including the Montgomery Bus Boycott,  and therefore the  federal ruling of Browder v. Gayle which ruled that segregated buses were unconstitutional, would be a turning point in segregated America. While  Rosa Parks  is certainly  an outsized   part of  American h
