NEW VIDEO RELEASED OF MENTALLY ILL MAN TASED TO DEATH IN POLICE CUSTODY FOR “SAGGING PANTS”

On November 26, 2013, 38 year old Ervin Edwards, partially deaf and mentally ill, was arrested by police for sagging his pants and taken to the West Baton Rouge Parish jail in Louisiana. He only lived for a few more minutes inside of the cell.

For 18 months, police have lied over and over again about what happened the night Ervin Edwards died in their custody. Now that a video of their despicable actions has been released, ( Warning very tough to watch ) it’s clear they murdered this man and left him to die all alone in his jail cell. 

Here are the 5 things you need to know:

  1. The Video Shows an Officer Held a Taser on Him for 1 Minute, Contradicting Earlier Claims
  2. Edwards Was Left Alone & Unresponsive in the Cell for 10 Minutes Before He Was Given Medical Aid
  3. An Internal Review Found No criminal wrongdoing by the Officers
  4. His Girlfriend Told Officers He Had Health Issues That Could Make the Use of a Taser Fatal
  5. A Corrections Expert Said the Video is ‘One of the Worst Things I’ve Seen’

UNARMED BLACK MAN KILLED IN POLICE CUSTODY

On April 12, Freddie Gray, healthy and whole, was arrested by the Baltimore Police.

According to his family and attorney Billy Murphy, when Freddie arrived at the hospital he had three broken vertebrae, his spinal cord was severed 80 percent, his voice box damaged, and his brain was swollen.

He died a week later from a “significant spinal injury”, police confirmed on Monday, while claiming it remained unknown how he was hurt. Chiefs said Gray appeared to have been injured while locked alone in a compartment of their transportation wagon.“When Mr Gray was put in that van, he could talk, he was upset. And when he was taken out of that van, he could not talk and he could not breathe,” deputy police commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said at a press conference.“It’s clear that what happened happened inside the van,” said mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. “We don’t have any procedure that would have an officer riding in the back of the van with the suspect.”

The police thus far have refused to give any reasonable explanation of how Gray went from healthy to dead in their custody. New incident reports that were just released state that Gray “was arrested without force or incident” and that he “suffered a medical emergency” in the back of the police van after his arrest. However there was also a video taken of the arrest by a bystander which appears to show the police were lying because they did in fact use excessive amount of force to the point that you can see Freddie limping while being dragged to the police van.

Here’s the thing: spines don’t sever themselves.

So, whatever the case, the police report is grossly inaccurate. Either Gray suffered those catastrophic injuries during his arrest or he suffered them in the van.

We need answers.

Riding his bike & talking on the phone, Dontrell Stephens shot 4 times in the back by Florida police

This is a national epidemic. In cities and states all across America, police are using lethal force on unarmed men and women. 

Exclusively-obtained dash-cam video shows Dontrell Stephens, 20, talking on a cellphone while riding his bike on a Friday morning in September 2013.  He can be seen turning onto Norma Elaine Road near Haverhill Road and Okeechobee Boulevard as PBSO deputy Adams Lin trails him. Moments later, Stephens realizes he’s being followed. He pulls over, gets off his bike with a cellphone in his right hand. And then, right there, Officer Lin begins to unload his gun into Dontrell Stephens. With nowhere to go, he gets shot in the back over and over and over again. Immediately, Officer Lin lies and says that he told Dontrell to get on the ground multiple times, but nothing of the sort happened.

In this unedited video of the shooting, which includes sound, it’s clear that Officer Lin made no such commands. Attorney Jack Scarola states, “There are no records of any commands ever made to Dontrell Stephens,” explained Scarola. “The deputy’s recorded statements following the shooting were absolutely false.  Internal affairs completely ignored that evidence,” he said.  

Amazingly, Dontrell survived the shooting, but is now paralyzed from the waist down.
