Atlantic City Cops Caught on Video Viciously Attacking, Siccing Dog on Non-Resisting Man

Atlantic City Cops Caught on Video Viciously Attacking, Siccing Dog on Non-Resisting Man

Another disgusting show of police abuse was caught on surveillance camera, showing five Atlantic City police officers beating, punching and kneeing a man repeatedly before a sixth officer drives up and sics a dog on the man.

The 20-year-old man, David Connor Castellani, was charged with aggravated assault. The video shows he did no such thing. The altercation begins just after the 3:00 mark.


Atlantic Police Chief Ernest Jubiliee told NBC10 that he viewed the tape of the incident that took place and “saw no reason to suspend or remove officers from their regular duties.”

It turns out, the cop who sicced the dog on Castellani, Sterling Wheaten, has been sued three times in the last three years for abusing citizens and has been investigated by internal affairs more than a dozen times in two years for excessive force.


Do SoCal Cops Shoot First, Lie Later?

Do SoCal Cops Shoot First, Lie Later?

"In both cases, the key question was: 'Were the cops telling the truth?'" says Sayre, the onetime head of the local Hispanic Bar Association. "And in both cases, juries concluded the cops weren't being honest. The officers had been willing to lie under oath."

It wasn't long ago that police in Orange County enjoyed reputations for honesty, as virtuous heroes. However, in the past decade, we've seen cops rape women, molest boys, steal cocaine from evidence lockers, perpetrate domestic violence, falsify official reports, assault handcuffed suspects, lie on the witness stand, knowingly arrest innocent people, party with organized-crime figures, accept bribes and destroy evidence. Last month, a jury convicted an LAPD detective of committing a sadistic murder.

In May 2009, Rodriguez foolishly lost his temper and broke a Belmont Shore shop window near Legends Sports Bar. Confronted by the bar's bouncers, Rodriguez agreed to stay until cops arrived. Jonathan A. Steinhauser, a culinary host turned Long Beach cop, didn't believe Rodriguez adequately complied with his commands and struck him with a baton. The man put up his arms to protect himself and gained control of the weapon. The cop pulled out his Glock handgun and fired three bullets that incredibly put nine holes in Rodriguez.

Police can legally use deadly force to defend themselves from real threats. To justify the shooting, Steinhauser claimed Rodriguez approached him while holding the baton as though it were "a baseball bat," a stance the cop saw as a potential fatal threat. (Note regarding the Thomas killing: Steinhauser testified that cops strike a suspect's torso to gain compliance or the head to inflict lethal damage; Fullerton cops targeted Thomas' head.)


Texas Court Rejects Appeal Of Death Row Inmate After Testimony That Blacks Are More Dangerous

A Texas appeals court declined to allow a new sentencing hearing Wednesday for an African American death row inmate whose initial hearing featured testimony by a psychologist that blacks are more likely to commit crimes. In 2000, when the psychologist’s comments were first reported, then-Texas Attorney General John Cornyn declared that the state would not stand in the way of a new sentencing. But while Duane Buck has since averted execution, Texas courts have denied several motions to reconsider his case, and he remains on death row.

The exchange came about as follows. Dr. Walter Quijano was testifying about Buck’s future dangerousness — a factor in determining whether a defendant will be sentenced to jail time or death. On cross-examination, the following exchange occurred:

PROSECUTOR: “You have determined that . . . the race factor, black, increases the future dangerousness for various complicated reasons; is that correct?”

Quijano: “Yes.”

The prosecutor again invoked Quijano’s discriminatory testimony during closing argument to suggest that Buck should be sentenced to death. Other Texas inmates have been granted new sentencing hearings because of similar comments by Quijano.

Protest marchers demand charges against deputy in Andy Lopez shooting death


A month after 13-year-old Andy Lopez was shot and killed by a Sonoma County sheriff's deputy, protesters are again taking to the streets Friday to demand the deputy be charged with his death.

A crowd of from 50 to 60 people have gathered at Santa Rosa City Hall and are expected to march along Mendocino Avenue to the Hall of Justice on Administration Drive.

There, they are planning to ask District Attorney Jill Ravitch to bring criminal charges against Deputy Erick Gelhaus.

Lopez was shot by Gelhaus on Oct. 22 after the deputy spotted the boy walking along Moorland Avenue in the middle of the afternoon carrying an airsoft BB gun that resembled an AK-47 rifle.

Justice Coalition for Slain Andy Lopez Founded

Justice Coalition for Slain Andy Lopez Founded

SANTA ROSA, CA — A new, powerful coalition of Latino, social justice, green, progressive Democrats, student, civil liberties, peace, and other groups has emerged in Sonoma County, California. The killing of 13-year-old Andy Lopez by sheriff’s deputy Erick Gelhaus on October 22 unites them.

Over forty members of diverse groups met–many who had never been in a room together–on November 19 to strategize about how to keep the strong momentum going in response to the slaying of Lopez. Many of those who spoke identified themselves as mothers or fathers, who felt the pain of the parents whose son was taken from them.

Lopez was killed while walking near his home with a toy rifle. This slaying has gotten regular front-page coverage locally and has been widely reported around the United States and internationally. Some compare it to the killings of African-Americans Trayvon Martin in Florida and Oscar Grant by a police officer in Oakland. That police officer is now in jail, one of the few cops ever charged for killing someone. Both those slayings ignited communities to demand justice.

The large, peaceful actions by Latinos and their allies could make changes in how Latino neighborhoods are treated by law enforcement. Latinos make up 25% of the populations of Santa Rosa and Sonoma County; they are the fastest growing group. Their continued mobilization on behalf of Andy indicates the rise of a mass movement.


Philippine Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief - Mrs Freakindj style

Will I told Mama to go get the boxes this week. I told her we would be shipping at least 5 boxes. She picked up 6 because she didn't want to forget her classmate in Lyete

We talked about it last night and knew they were being gouged for what little rice and food was left and would soon all be pretty destitute just in time for Christmas.

so we thought it was time we did our part

Sorry for the shot Mom - but here she is packing boxes getting them ready to ship

She had gotten up early this morning and went out to the store to pick up a "Few" things she thought they could use in the way of canned goods

She'll put in a layer of "Hand Me down" clothes - and lets be realistic kids outgrow clothes long before they wear them out. Either way the kids over there will take what they want and pass on the rest to even less fortunate folks before its tossed into the trash or recycled into some thing useful

On top of a layer of clothes she'll start packing it with canned goods. Add some clothes around the peremeter for protection, and then Top Off with yet a few more hand me downs.

I saw the canned milk and didn't realize she had a reason for sending Chocolate Syrup.

Oh well

Police Shoot and Kill Man for Watering Lawn, Family Awarded 6.5 Million

Police Shoot and Kill Man for Watering Lawn, Family Awarded 6.5 Million

Douglas Zerby was finishing up watering his lawn when neighbors, completely brainwashed by the police state, called the cops because they saw Zerby holding what they thought was a gun. It was actually a water hose nozzle.

Officers approached the position of Doug Zerby and without any warning whatsoever, fired upon Zerby, fatally wounding him with 12 rounds that entered his chest arms and lower legs.

“The money doesn’t bring my son back, which is all I really want,” Douglas Zerby’s mother, Pam Amici, said after the verdict, chocking back tears.

Cop’s History an Issue in Toy-Gun Slaying

Anyone want to say all 5 Eyewitnesses are wrong

Cop’s History an Issue in Toy-Gun Slaying

“With the media coverage and the tsunami of attention that the Lopez lawsuit has received,” said Casillas, “folks are coming to us from everywhere with stories about his repeated instances of recklessness. We are recording stories as far back to the mid-Nineties that indicate his reckless use of firearms … and the shocking part about all of this is that he is the firearms expert, the instructor. In other words Gelhaus lays down the foundation as to how other sheriff deputies are going to be exercising the use of force and that is truly shocking.”

Casillas said five eyewitnesses – four people in a vehicle immediately behind the patrol car and a man in front – said the fatal incident began when the patrol car accelerated into the intersection and crossed into the opposing lane of traffic. The police officers screamed out a command as they were exiting the cruiser and opened fire on Lopez, possibly in a matter of only two or three seconds, Casillas said, adding:

“Our forensic evidence suggests that Andy was shot as he was turning to his right, as the officers called out to him. The first bullet hit in the chest, literally went right through his heart. And it killed him. The police officer continued to shoot as Andy fell, and as Andy was on the ground.”

“We do know that the important sequence, the calling out a command to the shooting, was just two to three seconds,” Casillas said. “The two women behind the patrol car said that they [the deputies] were shooting as they were getting out of the patrol car. Andy wasn’t given a chance to respond or react.”


This thing just get worse every time a little more truth slips out from behind the narrative the Sonoma County Sheriff to the media

Kuddos to all the Media around the nation and the world for never looking any further then the AP wire - which in this case was merely the Sheriff's Talking Points
