Most of the cops and firemen were out in the hall getting drunk and jabbering so likely didn’t here it anyway.

Yeah, most of the people there were completely hammered by the end of the night and probably half or more of the people just stayed out on the concourse the entire night. Our seats were up in the 300 level but we ended up just taking over an entire row down in 108 because the ladies didn't want to sit all the way up there and nobody ever came to claim any seats in the row.

A long read, but very well worth it.

Out of the Stockley protests, 4 city cops are charged in federal court

Quote:
That same day, Boone texted someone that "[I]t's gonna be a lot of fun beating the hell out of these [expletive] once the sun goes down and nobody can tell us apart!!!" Boone also expressed giddiness at taking on the protesters alongside a fellow cop — a "BIG OL black dude" — and that he'd forgo his stick or shield "just to [expletive] people up when they don't act right!"

It was an undercover cop they beat the crap out of....black? not certain, but likely. Harder to hide that one behind the "blue wall." They tried anyway.
Quote:
They believed the undercover officer was a protester and assaulted him “while he was compliant and not posing a physical threat to anyone,” the indictment says.

After learning that the person they attacked was an undercover officer, the three male officers lied about the arrest, claiming the man resisted arrest and was not compliant, the indictment says. They also tried to contact the undercover officer to dissuade him from pursuing disciplinary or legal action, the indictment says.

At the time of the assault, police sources said Hall suffered a bloody lip during his arrest.

But sources close to Hall said Thursday that injuries from the assault were much more extensive. He has not been able to return to work.

Hall was kicked in the face, which inflamed his jaw muscles to the point where he could not eat. He went from about 185 pounds to 165.

The cut above his lip was a 2-centimeter hole that went through his face.


No indictments, that I am aware of - for all the other people they kicked around that evening - just lawsuits & settlements that taxpayers of STL willl have to fund.

Worth noting, our "law and order" GOP governor of Missouri, Eric Greitens hailed the work of the police this evening. Meanwhile, 91 other cases involving these bad apple cops have been dropped.

He is black. And has been accused himself of assaulting a citizen btw- city paid $800k +. But those roughed up by cops at the protest included a white Air Force officer and a white P-D reporter.

Another $500k the taxpayers will pay out for Stockley. Sum $1.4 Million.

No accountability for Stockley and the cops twiddling their peckers while he entered the car.

https://www.semissourian.com/story/2567946.htmlThe sheriff of Mississippi Co, MO is going to jail...for wire fraud. He's had a long history of other abuses, possibly a hate crime.

No criminal charges in the death of Tory Sander, the black man fighting depression who went for a drive, made a wrong turn into Missouri, ended up dead in the sheriff's jail, after getting brutalized.

https://www.wpsdlocal6.com/2018/11/12/family-of-tory-sanders-inmate-who-died-in-mississippi-county-jail-suing-for-wrongful-death/


Quote:
Hutcheson was stripped of his title and removed as sheriff as a result of Sanders’ death, but he was never criminally charged.

Quote:
The federal lawsuit seeks at least $20 million. It alleges the defendants violated Sanders’ civil rights under the United States and Missouri constitutions and violated Missouri’s statutes against false imprisonment, negligence, and wrongful death.

According to the lawsuit, surveillance video shows that Sanders was stunned multiple times and pepper spray was deployed in his cell — making his nose bleed — and a flash-bang grenade was used to stun him, all before the group of law enforcement officers entered the cell.

The suit says Hutcheson and other defendants rushed into the cell, and he was again stunned with a Taser. He was punched, kneed and stunned as the group tried to restrain him, the suit says, while he screamed “stop” and that they were trying to kill him.

According to the legal compliant, the group piled on top of Sanders, his body went limp, and he was cuffed. The suit says a jail administrator was ordered to apply pressure on Sanders’ neck — even though she had no training on pressure point techniques — and she did until he passed out and blood came from his mouth.

Hutcheson used his knee to apply pressure to Sanders’ neck and head, the suit says, with his hand on the man’s face. The suit says a Charleston police officer in the room told Hutcheson to let the pressure off Sanders’ neck at least three times, but Hutcheson said “No, I’m good.”

The suit says Hutcheson applied pressure to Sanders’ neck for at least one to three minutes after he had stopped moving, and that Sanders was not resisting when Hutcheson put pressure on his neck, nor when the jail administrator did it.

Eventually, it was discovered that Sanders’ wasn’t breathing. But no measures — such as CPR — were taken to safe his life, the suit says. After a while, Hutcheson allegedly told the group he would take the cuffs off Sanders once an ambulance arrived, because Sanders “was not under arrest.”

The suit says Sanders body was rolled out of the cell on a stretcher at 7:36 p.m. When he was pronounced dead at 8:08 p.m., the manner of death was listed as homicide “likely due to excited delirium syndrome.”

This is infruriating, sad, depressing - nothing ever gets done about this. The only recourse is lawsuits paid for by taxpayers. Rarely any accountablity for the police.

The locals voted this guy sheriff in 2016, even though he had already been accussed of abuse as

jail adminisitrator in ACLU lawsuit for woman who had a miscarriage in jail.

The state or the feds should take this county's law enforcement over.
