Cop Breaks 14yo Autistic Boy’s Arm assaults harmless man on Facebook live—Taxpayers Held liable

Cop Breaks 14yo Autistic Boy’s Arm assaults harmless man on Facebook live—Taxpayers Held liable

Maurice Crawley, 52, was live streaming on his Facebook page in 2016 when he was attacked and arrested by jackboot thugs for practicing his amendment right. one in every one of those thugs was officer Vallon Smith, who after years of abuse, has cost the taxpayers of Syracuse, many thousands of dollars.

This week, the town settled with Crawley and a toddler victim of Smith’s, Jabari Boykins, a 14-year-old with autism. The taxpayers of Syracuse are going to be forced to give $200,000 per victim. in keeping with, the Common Council will vote on both settlements at its next meeting on Monday, Nov. 23. within the settlement documents, the city’s lawyer denies the allegations in each lawsuit.

Despite both incidents being captured on video showing clear violations, officer Smith remains gainfully employed as a cop.

The first incident happened in July of 2016. Crawley had not committed a criminal offense and had harmed nobody when two officers from the Syracuse local department went out of their thanks to cross the road, assault, and kidnap him. Smith was the foremost aggressive cop.

As reported at the time, the incident happened as Crawley was out on the streets holding law enforcement officials accountable by filming them. As Crawley is filming two officers arrest a motorist, he says, “see what’s happening with these boys, confirm they’re doing everything they’re imagined to be doing.”

Crawley then zooms in. “Look at the Uncle Tom,” he said. “Yeah, Uncle Tom. Mmmhmm.”

As he zooms out, Crawley films one officer frisking the lady when he's threatened by Smith.

“Hey! Say one word, your ass goes to jail, with great care you recognize.”

Crawley replied, “I didn’t hear you. Say it again, officer. I’m sorry, I didn’t hear you.”

Asking the officer to repeat himself apparently flipped a switch inside this cop and he went into rampage mode.

“Don’t f**king move, you understand me? Don’t you f**king move. I’m gonna f**k you up!” Smith yells.

Since Crawley live-streamed, the video, police were unable to delete it. it had been then posted to the Black Lives Matter Syracuse Facebook page where it quickly went viral.

According to, Crawley is an outspoken anti-violence advocate within the community.

Herve Comeau, a spokesman for the Onondaga County Justice Center, helped to prepare a peaceful protest after Crawley’s arrest and made an astute observation about race during the protest.

“Though town, the mayor, and therefore the policeman have suggested that hiring black law enforcement officials would solve the matterit might not,” Comeau said.

Comeau then went on to notice how the color of the officer’s skin is irrelevant as long as they'll hide behind the badge. “The problem is police culture,” he said. “The problem may be a lack of accountability. the matter is that violent law enforcement officials can do violence against black bodies without consequence.”

After he's assaulted and arrested, Smith charged Crawley with obstructing governmental administration (interfering with police work) and battery. However, those charges were all later dropped.

The other taxpayer-funded settlement is {going to be|are} going to Boykins, who had his arm broken by Smith in 2017 when he was a freshman in high school. That arrest was also captured on video as Smith is seen forcefully smashing the teenager into the bottom. Smith's report, and what was seen on the video contradicted one another additionally. However, as reports:

DA Fitzpatrick cleared Smith of wrongdoing after the Citizen Review Board ruled the officer used excessive force and referred the case to the DA’s office.

The superintendent later removed Smith from the collegewhile he wasn't formally disciplined. That move prompted a backlash from the police union, which suggested pulling all law enforcement officials out of city schools.
Smith is additionally the topic of another lawsuit stemming from an occasion in 2019 within which he's accused of using excessive force.

Below could be a perfect example of why there's a growing divide between the police and therefore the policed. Until cops start protecting American’s rights rather than violating them, this divide will still expand and therefore the taxpayers will still suffer.

If you watch the video below and try to dismiss it by claiming it's an isolated incident, check. Click here to work out case after case of cops arresting people for legally filming.

If you watch the video below and think those cops attacking children with disabilities is additionally an isolated incident, click this link to dispel that myth.
