When Jason Disitso saw Officer Jonathan Munoz walk up to his friend and begin inappropriately touching her, sticking his hand in her pockets and frisking her, he did what anyone concerned with her safety might do in the 21st century: He asked another friend for his cell phone and began recording Munoz.
I found this on Facebook and I couldn’t read it without crying. Their story needs to be heard. Idk their name but on Facebook they go by Made Moiselle. They asked that people share this so I am because these racist ass cops NEED TO BE STOPPED!
“Hi FB! I have watched and posted many stories about police brutality for some time as I know many of you have as well, but part of me has always been relieved that it didn’t happen to me…until now!
On Saturday at 2 or 3 in the morning, my girlfriend and I were heading home in a cab after watching the last round of Afro Punk’s Battle of the Bands! We got out of the cab a block from where we live and decided to walk home. We were singing, laughing, and talking about the night when suddenly a white man came barreling down the street clearly upset about something and bumped into me.
Alarmed, I asked him if he was ok. He turned around and barked at me to mind my own business "you fucking dyke!” Shocked, I told him to watch his mouth. He then shoved me so hard I fell back. I got up and told him not to touch me again. He then started attacking me out of no where with rage in his eyes! He had me in a chokehold and kept repeatedly hitting me in my face. Feeling all the air escaping my lungs as my life was slipping away, I bit his arm so hard so that he would release me. He was trying to kill me!
My girlfriend seeing this tried to pull me from his grip, but he grabbed me by my hair and continued to punch me in the face and attack me. We kept yelling at him to let me go, but when I looked in his eyes I didn’t see a man, I saw a monster. A monster that wanted to kill me. And he would have had I not kept biting him with all my strength. When my girlfriend tried to get in the middle to pull us apart, he then turned on her. Knowing that she is much smaller than me, I feared that he would try to kill her too, so I jumped on him and continued to bite him.
He was much larger than us. I am 5'5 115lbs. My girlfriend is 5'2 105lbs. This man is around 6ft 220lbs with muscles. We had no chance against him so the only thing I felt I could do was disable him by biting him as hard as I could all over. I bit his fingers, chest, arm, anywhere I could land my teeth so he would stop attacking.
When I jumped on him after he tried to attack my girlfriend he slammed me on the ground so hard I nearly blacked out from the pain. Now he was on top of me choking me and hitting me. I yelled for help! We just so happened to be by a police precinct.
The man that was attacking me then said that he was a cop. Surprised and in completely disbelief, my girlfriend shouted at him to show us his badge. I couldn’t believe that an actual cop would attack two women on their way home. Suddenly an unmarked car pulled up, and a cop jumped out. He ran towards us. I thought I was finally saved. Little did I know, we were not!
He handcuffed my girlfriend. I was stunned and asked him to tell me why. He never said. Then a swarm of police came and threw me on the ground. My head hit the pavement so hard that I thought for sure, this is it, I am going to die! I could hear my girlfriend in the background crying and I kept trying to assure her that everything would be ok, but deep down I knew it wasn’t true. They all roughed me up, putting all of their weight on my neck, back and shoulders as they forcefully placed me in handcuffs.
I kept shouting for them to tell us why we were being arrested. They never said anything to us. They didn’t read us our rights or tell us the reason for our arrest. All they did was throw us in a holding cell at the 63rd precinct. Completely emotional and angry at this point, I kept demanding that they tell us why we were being arrested. They all kept quiet. I told them that they were wrong. That we did nothing wrong and that this man attacked us. I told them to release my girlfriend because she didn’t deserve to be in jail. I didn’t either, but I knew they were going to try to keep one of us locked up and I didn’t want her to go to jail. After a lot of yelling and screaming, they finally released my girlfriend because I’m sure they knew they had no real reason to hold her.
I on the other hand, was accused of assaulting an officer and I was sent to Rikers jail. I spent the day in Rikers replaying the nights events, crying silently wondering how could this happen and why to me. I have to go to trial on Thursday early in the morning, but I have to post this so you all will know that police brutality is real. They are not here to protect you, you are the enemy.
Please share this post, so the world knows what is going on. I am posting pictures of my injuries so you all will see what this monster did to me. My eye is bleeding, my jaw is bruised and swollen, I have bruises all up and down my body from the assault and there is barely a single part of me that isn’t in excruciating pain. The bruises, cuts and physical scars are nothing compared to the emotional and psychological scars that will remain with my girlfriend and I forever.
I am still shaken by this, and the battle has only just begun, but please help me by spreading the word! This has got to stop! We need to show them, that this is not ok! That we will not continue to stand for this injustice! Unlike our fallen comrades like Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown and the thousands of people that were killed by the hands of these cops, I am just grateful to God that I am still alive to tell my story, so please share it with as many people as you can! Thanks in advance!“
July 28 2015 - During an arrest in Brooklyn a man is held down by multiple police officers who then start beating him. The many bystanders, who were just looking on out of interest before, start telling the police exactly what they think of this instead of just accepting the police brutality, yelling at them to stop hitting him, and several even move to stop the officers from attacking the man. [video]
“At a moment when people across the country are reckoning with the deadly reality of police violence and the terror it imposes on black communities, the New York Police Department fractured the leg of a player in the National Basketball Association. The NYPD had an interaction with Thabo Sefolosha of the Atlanta Hawks, and they broke his damn leg.
Sefolosha’s damaged fibula comes after a season when NBA players spent last winter making statements against police violence, after the killings of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. It also comes at a time when police brutality is under an exacting microscope following the execution of Walter Scott by Officer Michael Slager in North Charleston, South Carolina. In the blinkered reality of the sports world, the big story is that the damage to Sefolosha has happened right when the Atlanta Hawks are about to enter the playoffs with the best record in the Eastern Conference, jeopardizing what has been a dream season.”
I honestly do not understand, are cops complete dunce to behave so “awkwardly”? But really, the American public has completely lost faith in the police, probably NO ONE (except the ruling class) trust the cops. The only emotion that causes the police is the fear for our lives, and not a sense of security. And cops continue to publicly demonstrate their brutality, apparently they think that citizens will soon cease to overreact to such cases. I hope that this will not happen.
Week after week, racist posts appear on Thee Rant, a blog for current or former New York City police officers: African Americans are called “apes;” a retired officer says one of the blessings of retirement is not having to work the Puerto Rican Day parade, with its “old obese tatted up women stuffed into outfits that they purchased or shoplifted at the local Kmart store; a Middle Eastern cab driver berated by an officer is termed a “third worlder” who should have his “head split open.”
According to the Free Thought Project, Copwatch Patrol Unit member Michael Barber said he saw two undercover officers attempting to arrest a 14-year-old girl around 7 p.m. Thursday on the corner of 140th St. and Hamilton Place in Harlem. The incident was “reportedly over allegations that a child who was with her, who witnesses say appeared to be around 7-years-old, had pushed the button on a police call box." That’s when her fellow New Yorkers stepped in.
Nine Months After He Filmed Eric Garner's Killing, the Cops Are Trying to Put Ramsey Orta Behind Bars
“At first I didn’t think it would blow up this big,” Ramsey Orta told me. He was describing the video he took of his friend Eric Garner being killed by the NYPD. His voice was nearly too soft to hear.
I interviewed Orta on April 10, nine months after Officer Daniel Pantaleo had choked Eric Garner to death in front of Staten Island’s Bay Beauty Supply. In December, a grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo, but Orta, his supporters say, has been the target of a police campaign to destroy his life ever since.
When I spoke to him, he was at the tail end of a two-month stint on Rikers Island, locked up on $100,000 bail and awaiting trial for drug charges. Orta is 23 years old and slight, with sharp cheekbones that his time in Rikers had made almost disturbingly prominent. Terrified of being poisoned, he’d been living off of pre-packaged commissary food since he entered jail. The fear is better founded than you might think—19 prisoners in Orta’s unit are suing the city over pellets of rat poison they allege guards planted in their meatloaf.
Brooklyn Woman Says Cop Called Her Homophobic Slurs And Choked Her
Stephanie Dorceant, a 29-year-old barista and aspiring filmmaker, was walking home early on Saturday morning with her girlfriend, Nandi Allman, when a man bumped into her. It was around 2 a.m. and a cab had just dropped them off a few blocks from the apartment they share in Flatlands, following an Afro Punk Festival battle of the bands in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Dorceant said she asked the man, 6 feet tall, 200-pounds, if he was okay, and he responded, “mind your own business, you fucking dyke.”
He continued to curse Dorceant; she told him not to talk to her that way; and he proceeded to beat and choke her, according to her account. “Call the cops! Call the cops!” he yelled out to the cab driver, who was still at the curb, frozen in place. He then slammed Dorceant to the ground and placed his hands around her neck, as Allman desperately tried to pull her away, according to the couple… /read full story here/
“The crazy thing is my friends and I have talked about police brutality, hate crimes, and I never thought for one second that would be me,” she said. “This whole ordeal has been really surreal for me. I feel like one day I’m going to just wake up.”
Being black and gay, you’re in great danger facing a cop. Those bastards, perhaps the most intolerant people in America. Not only have they got a great power to do anything they want, so they also have the assurance that nobody can punish them. Our law enforcement system is a bullshit, a mockery of justice. I dunno how to act in such a situation. In fact, Stephanie was totally defenseless in front of that motherfucker …
NYPD turns down Black candidate with clean record.
“We have a significant population gap among African American males because so many of them have spent time in jail and, as such, we can’t hire them.” – NYPD Commissioner William Bratton on why there aren’t more Black cops
Mayor de Blasio has said that “You can be a New York police officer even if you once had a misdemeanor,” but 29-year-old Mark Shannon was sent a rejection letter citing two dismissed assault charges without so much as an interview. His qualifications include graduating cum laude from Tuskeegee University and serving as a substitute teacher in the NY public school system for the past 8 years with nary a blemish, but he’s unqualified because of two charges that were dismissed once all the facts were brought to light.
But Black cops are hard to find because so many of us have records. Got it.
The city of New York has paid Eric Garner’s family $5.9 million.
The family of Eric Garner accepted a settlement Monday from the city of New York, which agreed to pay $5.9 million in compensation to avoid a wrongful-death suit by the family after Garner’s death in Staten Island last July. The city’s settlement with the Garner family however, did nothing to diminish Officer Pantaleo’s career prospects.
A disturbing video taken in New York City shows police punching and beating a man who greeted the officers with his hands up.
The video shows Thomas Jennings standing at the counter of a convenience store, raising his hands in surrender. A police officer approaches with a baton in his right hand and starts pushing him in the chest with his left. Jennings begins to back up with his hands in the air, when a second officer rushes in and starts punching Jennings in the head. The two officers then begin to handcuff Jennings’ hands behind his back. After cuffing Jennings, one officer hits him in the back with the baton and uses his elbow to drive Jennings’ face into the counter. /source/
This was a fucking racism! It was fucking disrespect! Police brutality in its purest form! Motherfuckers just tortured the guy! Here is the face of NYPD. Bloodthirsty assholes who want to beat the shit out of each black they ain’t like. Imagine a white teenager in his place. Damn! That’s fucked up! It hurts when i watch this shit.
Why do people only care about Baltimore? It’s the only thing on the news. On Twitter, on tumblr.
Why are people of color the only ones that get hashtags?
This nypd officer was 25 years old.
But no one cares when a cop dies.
