Assault of Fort Bliss Soldier Sgt James Brown inside El Paso County Jail by Riot Police

Texas War Veteran Dies In Custody Telling Guards ‘I Can’t Breath’ 20Times

‘Brown, 26, was an active-duty soldier at Fort Bliss in Texas who has served two tours of combat duty in Iraq. He had no previous criminal record.

When he self-reported to the El Paso County Jail in July 2012 to serve a short sentence for driving while intoxicated, he said in writing that he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, according to jail records’

Watch what happened next.


‘The family’s attorneys, Jason Bowles and B.J. Crow, said the video poses some serious questions about the county jail’s treatment of Brown.

When a 26-year-old man checks into jail for a court imposed sentence on a Friday, and he leaves Sunday in a casket, something went horribly wrong there,“ said Crow.

Brown’s family said he had shown no history of sickle cell crisis and that they believe his treatment in jail caused the medical emergency.

Crow added the claimed stress that brought about Brown’s sickle cell crisis at the jail was apparently more stress than the soldier had undergone while twice coming under fire during combat.

He was bleeding out the ears, the nose, the mouth, his kidney’s shut down, his blood pressure dropped to a very dangerous level, and his liver shut down,” said Crow.

Brown’s family, meanwhile, wanted the public to know what happened to him at the El Paso County jail’                        /source/

Here is another illustration of the American Law enforcement system. James’ family wants the story became public, I hope that we will help to fulfill their will. In fact, such cases usually stay a mystery to the public, this time motherfuckers responsible for the murder won’t escape punishment.

I’m sure this is not the only case occurred in this prison. If the cops patrolling the streets are a real danger to people, then imagine how dangerous it’s to deal with the cops who work with prisoners. Damn! It’s so wrong…

Surprise Veterans Reunion Highlights Brenau Graduation Ceremony

When Brenau University President Ed Schrader gave his welcoming remarks at the 2015 commencement, he gave a special acknowledgment to the active duty military personnel and veterans among the graduating class. Schrader singled out one veteran: Debra Cooper from Winder, Georgia, who was about to receive a diploma for a Master of Occupational Therapy degree.

Not only had Cooper served in the U.S. Army herself, Schrader said, but also her daughter, Staff Sgt. Markita James of Dublin, Georgia, was currently serving in Afghanistan.
Then Schrader corrected himself.

“Actually Sgt. James is not in Afghanistan,” he said. “She is here so that she could be with her mother at graduation.”

James had stealthily positioned herself in the audience behind the graduating class, but when Schrader said the words “not in Afghanistan,” mom Cooper got the hint and began frantically looking around. The run-hug-squeal-cry mother and daughter re-union became an instant “YouTube” moment.

“She’s my she-ro,” James later said about her mother.

RE: veterans

You know that feeling after you finish a series of books? Or when you finish a really amazing TV show? 

That feeling of wistfulness. Feeling like you have no idea what you’re going to do next? 

Multiply that feeling by 1000. 

When i came home, the world had changed. I was gone for more than a year, and in that time i went from thinking the Sidekick was the most amazing phone to buying an iphone. 

Imagine missing everything that happened at home for a year. 

It was so hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that life kept going while i was gone. A year is a long time to be deployed. It’s even longer for those we love to be without us. 

I came home and spent my days begging for something to happen. I lived an adrenaline filled rush for more than a year and came home to an apartment and a cat and nothing else. 

What do you do with yourself after you’ve been on an adventure? 

So many of us have died because we don’t know how to come home. 

I haven’t been able to hold down a steady job for more than a few months since i came home. I’ve been unable to commit myself to anything. I avoid treatment because of my anxiety. 

I didn’t have someone teaching me how to be a civilian when i came home. I still don’t have it right. I’m so lost. 

I’m broke and sick. Sad and broken. 

I don’t have the money to fix me. And i can’t make money till i fix this. 

How is it that so many politicians say they support the troops and yet, i feel abandoned?

Help a vet and his family

Hey guys, I never ever post, and hardly ever repost these because I don’t want to bombard people with posts they’ve already seen or what not. I know times are hard for everyone right now, but I have a great friend with two lovely children that are having difficulty even eating right now.

He’s a veteran, and VA has been screwing him over with benefits, and debt companies are garnishing his wife’s pay, illegally. It was hard enough for them to find a place to live recently, but they really need help and it would mean a lot to me if you guys could pass around his gofundme, or even donate. I know I don’t have a lot of followers, but I want to help him in some way.

Please if you can reblog this for me it would mean a lot. His gofundme is here.

Friends,

A few weeks ago I posted about how I had an interview with Planned Parenthood in Portland! Well i have some awesome news! 

They offered me the job! 

Now for the hard part: The move. 

After my cancer diagnosis and my struggles with anxiety and depression things have not been easy for Elias and I. But this is the opportunity I’ve been waiting for. Unfortunately, I don’t have anything in savings and this move will be practically impossible without your help. 

Please, share this link with your friends and followers. 

Donate if you can, share if you can’t. 

Much love,

Damien
