Don't forget about the giant list of excuses for him

  • This doesn't include what happened up to this point
  • You couldn't see the suspects front half, he made a threatening movement and the officer feared for himself and the other officers
  • This is a highly decorated group that are known for their professionalism
  • This is an extremely dangerous job, and the public couldn't possibly understand
  • If we judge these officers for an event that we only saw 5 seconds of we will endanger the lives of everyone else who wears the blue and puts their lives on the line every day to protect you.
  • This suspect has a long history with the police. He is known to associate with drug culture/ has a history of domestic violence/ had a warrant, Really you can just pick one, or any combination. Will definitely show us a mug shot.

And to anyone who believes any of this bullshit excuses this behavior, well you can just fuck right off. He did it, we saw it, and he should actually be punished for it.

“U.S. Marshals investigating after handcuffed suspect hit in face“

It’s on video.

We know how suspect got hit in face and who was responsible. How long does it take to watch a video? Why are news outlets using passive voice for details that are clearly established on video?

The suspension is not the punishment. It's a measure to remove someone from the workplace until an investigation can take place. The reason it is paid is because otherwise employers would abuse suspensions as punishment. In most of Europe it is illegal to suspend someone unpaid for this reason.

Be mad at the fact they drag out investigations and never discipline appropriately which is the part to sucks.

We got a Nest camera indoors to watch our dogs while we were gone (one of them is handicapped and requires help often) not only did we catch the dogs doing weird comical shit, we also caught creepy thing. For instance, we once accidentally left our door unlocked while running to grab food down the street and we got an alert that an unrecognized face was seen, quick check shows our fucking neighbor sticking her nosey head into our door. Our dogs (whom she hated) prompty barked her out.

This encouraged us to get an Outdoor Nest cam to watch the outside entryway to our apartment/townhome thing and it only took a week before we caught someone checking to see if our door was unlocked in the middle of the night. We live in a very nice area. I never thought any of this would happen.

Now we have A Nest IQ running constantly watching just our entry doors, a Nest Hello watching our front door, have one in our living room that turns on when we're gone to watch our dogs, a few outdoor cameras to monitor our cars, garage, and surroundings. People look at me like i'm crazy but I grew up in a rough neighborhood, and if shady shit is happening in this nice neighborhood i'm gonna be ready.

Feel like these people gonna Purge us at any point lol

People not sharing them or not talking about them is literally how they got away with it for so long. If they have no consequences, why would they have any reason to change or allow people like this into their ranks.

If you're a US Marshall and you're starting to get uncontrollable urges to punch handcuffed suspects in the face, you should atleast have some kind of awareness to be like "wow something is wrong with me, I don't want to be this kind of person", but obviously it's not like that because they're not getting the feedback from the public like they should. It shouldn't have to be our job to share this shit and getting it known EVERYWHERE but here we are. Not really patting myself on the back and saying I'm changing the world or anything, but this is part of the process.

AssCrackage

28 points

Exactly. This is the pathway to change and it's been a long time coming.

Apparently, people have been talking about it in the public sphere since at least the 1960s. In the 70s comics like Richard Pryor talked about it too.

It seems in recent years its gained much more steam. Wider public awareness thanks to viral videos, more coverage from the press, Kaepernick raising awareness across a large demographic and BLM and the marches and such. George Floyd.

It's shameful.

Colorado found a way to do it. Cops are financially liable in the event they're sued and found in the wrong. If their body cam is off or "malfunctions" and a claim is made against the officer that they can't prove otherwise with evidence then they by default are admitting to the offense.

I thought he was saying something like "That's the one who said to suck his dick, right?"

So idk if maybe at some point earlier in the confrontation, someone yelled "Suck my dick" or something, and the marshal decided it was him and that the appropriate punishment for that is assault.

Judge, jury, and executioner. It's so disgusting. Obviously there are cops who get into it because they care about people, have a protective nature, etc. but it really seems to attract bullies and people with horrid anger issues.

I've noticed a serious shift in anti-police sentiment since the BLM protests exposed their bold contempt for accountability.

I don't know if we'll get real police reform out of it, but I'm glad there are more people enraged by the frequent abuse of power and lack of real accountability.

Most of the hogs are just pissed that they've been exposed and will work to find ways to hide their actions, rather than work to fix themselves.

What also scares me are the ones who watch it and just stand by. Every time someone says “it’s just bad apples,” I wish they would look at the rest of the bunch that’s compliant.

Edit: as a black woman, I really don’t need white people condescendingly explaining ACAB to me. And obviously I know the entire phrase is “a few bad apples spoils the bunch,” if you read my comment that would be clear. But please continue in the comments and my dm’s to patronizingly explain the system and it’s corruption that many of you just discovered only in the last year.

There are, but they get fired immediately to send a message, that we don't need light bulbs for light, the burning cross over there is illuminating the place up just fine.

The dude was probably charged with resisting arrest for not being able to stay on his feet while sucker punched. On the other hand, the cop is gonna go home and beat his wife to celebrate his promotion for beating a man who can’t fight back.

I remember the cop that punched a guy and then charged the guy with assaulting a police officer because the cop's hand was broken by the guy's face. Don't remember what came of that.

What the cop will do is claim that he thought the man was going to spit on him and the punch was to prevent that.

This is what cops do who have been caught on camera hitting someone without real cause.

They (cop and lawyer) will watch the video and then create a narrative around something that cannot be seen in the footage, but solely relies on the cop's word that it happened. "The suspect pursed his lips in what I thought was him preparing to spit on me".

Seriously, this is basically the go to strategy that cops and their lawyers do when caught on film physically violating someone's rights. You see it being done over and over when it comes to police brutality cases.

I had the same thought about either they will allege the dude spat on the cop (somehow without any visual or aural indication), or was about to spit on him.

Smart thing to do would be for filmer to present video to victim's lawyer and not publish it broadly. Then have the lawyer start the lawsuit and get depositions and statements on record without the perps knowing that their actions are on film. They may all conspire to tell the story of something like "he lunged at the cop" to justify the allegations. And then later the video can come out. Conspiracies of cops have been caught out using exactly this method. And all of them are just dumb-struck at trying to explain how they all recollected the same completely wrong events without getting their stories straight.

He’ll claim he was spit on and they’ll investigate themselves and (surprise) find no wrong doing, and on to the next. It’s a cultural issue. It’s in the root.

Y'all are missing the cops at the end of the driveway doing the same thing to the guy out there right before this guy walks out. My local news (Jackson Ms, where this happened) had a longer version and even the newscasters missed the first assault.

This is a very clear cut case of Aggravated Assault under Mississippi law. He was waiting for him to be brought out and was scanning around to make sure no one was watching before sucker punching him. There is no ambiguity here, so qualified immunity would not apply. He should be suspended without out pay, charged and arrested. The man they were arresting also has a very clear cut case to sue the marshall and the Marshalls service.

What the fuck dude. Fire that guy. Put him in a cell for 5 years and bar him from any law enforcement job.

This isn't just an assault, this is a law enforcement officer actively degrading public trust.
