In a settlement, Daniel Chong, 25, will receive $4.1 million from the government after he was mistakenly left in a DEA interrogation room without food or water for 5 days

The settlement, approved by the Department of Justice, was announced Tuesday in San Diego by the student, Daniel Chong, 25, and his lawyer, Eugene Iredale.

“It was an accident, a really, really bad, horrible accident,” Chong said.

Iredale said Chong has undergone intensive psychotherapy and been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

What happened to Chong, Iredale said, “should never happen to any human being on the face of the planet.”

The bizarre event began on the afternoon of April 20, 2012 — a traditional counterculture day of celebration for smoking pot. Chong, then an engineering student at UC San Diego, went to a house near campus to smoke marijuana with friends and found himself swept up in a DEA raid.

Officers from several police agencies raided the house and found large quantities of ecstasy pills and hallucinogenic mushrooms, plus weapons and ammunition, according to court documents. Unknown to Chong, the house had been under surveillance for days.

Chong and eight suspects were taken into custody for interrogation. After being questioned briefly at the DEA facility in San Diego, he was told he would soon be released.

But, for reasons that remain unclear, Chong was left for five days in a 5-by-10-foot windowless room without food, water or toilet facilities. He quickly lost weight and was able to slip out of a pair of handcuffs.

He suffered hallucinations. He tried to break a fire sprinkler to get water but failed. Instead he said he had to drink his own urine to survive. He screamed for help but soon became too weak. For the final two days, Chong was in the dark, Iredale said.

Fearing that he would die, Chong broke his glasses and scrawled the message, “Sorry, mom,” on his arm.

When he was discovered by DEA employees, Chong was covered in his own feces and severely dehydrated. He was rushed to a hospital, close to kidney failure and breathing with difficulty. He spent five days in the hospital.

NYPD assaults judge trying to protect handcuffed homeless man from beating, judge sues

Hearing someone cry out in distress is difficult for many to endure. When the distress is caused by a gang with badges accountable to no one it is difficult to protect anyone. A judge made an effort to calm a situation that should not have happened.

A homeless man already in restraints was being attacked by police.

The police response, hide the evidence and lie to the district attorney. Shop owners were threatened not to show security footage of the man being attacked. Responsible citizens gathering evidence with their cameras were pushed out of range to hide the misdeeds of the NYPD.

A seventy year old judge was struck in the neck by an officer intent on hiding the criminality of his peers. The ER told the judge he had a crushed larynx. The police who have no medical license told the DA the judge had a sore throat from yelling.

And from what appears to be standard, the video evidence of the misdeeds was not even considered when the NYPD investigated themselves and found no wrongdoing.

    In the 43-page lawsuit, Raffaele claims he went to help a homeless man in the neighborhood who was being attacked by police.

     Raffaele says he heard the handcuffed homeless man pleading with unknown officers, “I beg you please stop, I beg you please stop,” while police assaulted him in front of a swelling crowd…


…He claims police arrived and threatened many in the crowd who were filming the attack with cell phones. He says police threatened local shop owners not to provide security footage of the incident.
     An unknown officer “charged up” to the judge, shoved him and then “using a karate chop-like” hit him in the neck, Raffaele says in the complaint.
     He claims police refused to take an official statement from him that he had been attacked, and then tried to hide the unknown officer’s identity.
     The judge says he went to the hospital that night and was diagnosed with a crushed larynx.

Cops Fake Illegal Drug Checkpoints to Detain and Search Drivers who React to the Sign | The Free Thought Project 

In Mayfield Heights, Ohio, checkpoints to search for drugs are illegal, so the crony cops have decided to try another way to violate the peoples’ freedom from unreasonable search; fake drug checkpoints.

According to Cleveland.com, police gathered in the express lanes of Interstate 271 after placing signs along the freeway warning motorists that a drug checkpoint lay ahead.

There was no checkpoint, only police waiting for motorists to react suspiciously after seeing the signs. A Mayfield Heights assistant prosecutor says it’s a lawful and legitimate tactic in his city’s war on drugs.

“We should be applauded for doing this,” Dominic Vitantonio said. “It’s a good thing.”

Lying, abusing, and twisting the so-called law, should “be applauded”? Welcome to the prison nation, slave.

James Hardiman, the Legal Director of Ohio’s ACLU, said, “Mayfield Heights police may believe they have concocted a scheme that allows them to circumvent the Constitution, but they are mistaken.”

He continued, “Americans have a fundamental right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and courts have been clear that random drug checkpoints like Mayfield Heights’ are illegal.”

Cop pulls over 28-year-old women for a broken headlight, then instructs her to lift up her shirt, pull her bra away from her body, and shake it to see if she was hiding any drugs. Twice.

A Lakeland, Fla., police officer is under fire after ordering a woman to shake her bra during an unjustified search for drugs at a traffic stop.

Officer Dustin Fetz pulled over Zoe Brugger and her boyfriend on May 21 because Brugger was driving with a broken headlight, the Ledger of Lakeland reported. Fetz told her to lift up her shirt, pull her bra away from her body and shake it out so he could see if she was hiding any drugs.

This is happening in Kiev 

Here’s all the details: 

Footage from the Ukrainian capital showed hundreds of police officers using tear gas, rubber bullets and stun grenades against the protesters. Some episodes involved policemen snatching individual rioters from the crowds and brutally beating them. 

Ukrainian authorities have lifted a ban on the use of water cannons when the temperature is below zero.

State Cop Shoots At Minivan Full Of Kids

NYPD officer caught bragging about framing black man

A New York police officer allegedly stopped and frisked a black man without a proper reason before arresting him - just because of his race.

Michael Daragjati, 32, searched the man in April on Staten Island without proper cause before arresting him, a Brooklyn criminal complaint said.

Daragjati, who is white, allegedly arrested the man when he complained - and filed a false report saying he had resisted arrest.


This happens a lot more than people know, it’s nation wide. White cops believe they can do what they want with the minorities and they have - surprisingly that this is ongoing.

Carabineros ante el hecho intentó detenerla lo que fue impedido por personas que se encontraban alli.

La gente comenzó a increpar al carabinero que había ocasionado la grave lesión a la mujer ante lo que el Teniente Jorge Díaz , quien parecía estar a cargo de ese grupo resguardó al carabinero que golpeó a la señora, haciendolo subir, ya resguardado) en la micro de FFEE B 252.

“Police forces with some of the worst records of targeting black people have decided to stop recording the ethnicity of the people their officers stop and ask to account for their movements, the Guardian has learned.”

This man is stopped in a parking lot for being tatted up and looking like a “gangsta.” After professionally and duly articulating why the gentlemen was being pulled over.

When the officer asks him where he is heading to, the driver asks if he is being detained or if he’s free to go. Apparently, knowing his rights does not make the officer very happy; she begins to lash out at the man for his inability to park appropriately as well as for being “all tatted up.”

Woman Says She Called 911 for an Ambulance for Her Fiancé, Cops Came and Shot Him Instead

Jack Lamar Roberson was shot and killed by police in his home on Friday afternoon in Waycross, Georgia. According to local TV station First Coast News, his fiancée Alcia Herron called 911 for an ambulance after becoming worried about diabetes medication Roberson had taken. Cops claim Roberson was brandishing two weapons (not identified by police, though the mayor said he was told it was a knife) and came toward them “aggressively armed”. Police also say they were informed Roberson had attempted to commit suicide and was being combative while on their way to his residence. His mother and his fiancée both witnessed the shooting, and their 8-year-old daughter was apparently in the home too. Roberson’s mother said the family didn’t own “two decent knives” while his fiancée described the incident to First Coast News: “He didn’t have nothing in his hands at any time or period at all before they came, any time while they were here, anything. They just came in and shot him. He didn’t say nothing, the police didn’t say nothing, anything, it was like a silent movie. You couldn’t hear anything, all you could hear were the gun shots go off and I seen them going into his body and he just fell down,” cried Alcia Herron, Roberson’s fiance. Herron told the Florida Times-Union she became afraid for Roberson, believing he may have taken too much diabetes medication, though did not appear to provide more details anywhere. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the shooting and the officers involved are on paid leave.
