Tallahassee Settles Mistaken Home Raid Case: TPD Race Soldier Cops Beat & Drag Black Minister on Concrete, Invade Home & Terrorize Kids like Enemy Combatants  

From [HERE] The city of Tallahassee quietly settled a federal lawsuit filed by a Black Tallahassee minister who alleged he was choked and abused by police officers after they raided his house by mistake in 2010.

The city settled the case brought by Kevin Hawkins, minister at The Multitude of Christ Church on Apalachee Parkway, last month for $45,000. The settlement amount is under a $50,000 threshold that would have required approval from city commissioners.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Tallahassee, said Tallahassee Police Department officers armed with assault weapons and paramilitary attire pulled Hawkins out of his home on Idlewild Drive on Aug. 11, 2010, dragged him across a concrete walkway and subjected him to other physical abuse. He suffered cuts to his face, injuries to his arm, legs and back and a broken dental plate, according to court records.

TPD officers also forced Hawkins' daughter, who was 15 at the time, to get onto the bathroom floor, partially covered with only a small towel, and ordered his son, who was 9 at the time, to put his hands up and lie face-down on the floor, the complaint alleged. The cops held them at gun point. A dozen TPD officers, all members of the Tactical Apprehension and Control Team, were named as defendants.

James Cook, a Tallahassee attorney who represented Hawkins and his two children, said his client decided to settle in part because officers were expected to seek a type of appeal open to law enforcement before lawsuits are resolved. He said taking a higher settlement amount to city commissioners also could have delayed a resolution.

"Basically our client was looking at settling it now for less than he thought it was worth or waiting another year and a half to two years to go to trial," Cook said. "This is a huge problem in the field of civil rights."

A video shot by TPD shows the first portion of the arrest, including officers knocking on Hawkins' door and taking him to the ground outside his house. The video shows officers wearing miltary helmets, gloves and carrying automatic rifles.

"They just don't look like they're from this world," Cook said. "(Hawkins) was humiliated in front of his kids. It hurt him every time he thought about it. He wanted to get it behind him."

Family of Osman Hernandez files wrongful death suit: White Salinas Cops Execute Latino Man Holding Lettuce Knife - shot lying on his back with Assault Rifle 10 times

From [HERE] and [HERE] The parents of a man fatally shot by Salinas police in May have filed a federal lawsuit [HERE] claiming wrongful death.

Osman Hernandez, 26, was shot and killed by police in the parking lot of Mi Pueblo on East Alisal on May 9. Officers responded after a citizen called to report that a man was there brandishing a lettuce knife.

Officers say Hernandez didn't comply with their orders and that they used a stun gun on him but it wasn't effective. They said he still attempted to come toward them with the knife,  and that's when two officers fired their guns at him.

The shooting occurred in front of numerous witnesses and was caught on surveillance camera. The incident spurred an emotional debate and accounts of what happened were wildly conflicting at the time.

The suit filed by Hernandez' parents names the city of Salinas, Police Chief Kelly McMillin and the officers involved.

According to the complaint, Hernandez was shot 10 times. The case is under review by the Monterey County District Attorney's Office. Chief McMillin has said the officers used appropriate force in the incident.

About two weeks after Hernandez was killed, Salinas police fatally shot Carlos Mejia (foul video below), after responding to reports of a man trying to break into a woman's house and exposing himself to her. Officers say that when they arrived, Mejia had a large pair of garden shears that he was brandishing at them. Officers tried using a stun gun first, but it was unsuccessful. Mejia's family has also filed a wrongful death suit.


Arizona Jail Accused of Ignoring & Refusing Basic Medical Care to Latino Man who Died in Cell - Detained for Driving on Suspended License 

From [HERE] Another wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in photo). This time, detention officers are accused of deliberately looking the other way, instead of helping a  Latino inmate with a serious medical condition.

Felix Torres, 47, died in October 2013, after being found unconscious in his jail cell. Torres had been arrested on outstanding warrants for driving on a suspended license and failing to appear in court.

He was being held at Maricopa County's Towers Jail in Phoenix.

Torres' mother hired an attorney, who just filed a wrongful death lawsuit, accusing detention officers and other jail personnel of ignoring Torres' cries for help.

According to the lawsuit, "Felix continued in vain to try to obtain medical assistance," while detention officers and the medical staff, "were deliberately indifferent to Felix's need for care."

Brandon Aubrecht told CBS 5 News that he was in the jail cell, just a few feet away from Torres, in the days leading up to Torres' death.

"I heard the DO cursing at him," said Aubrecht. "Quit f*** faking. Quit faking it - quit complaining. Inmates actually had to drag him to medical. They were saying that medical was actually laughing at him, and basically telling him he's faking it ."

'Fearful for their Safety' White Dallas Cops Fatally Shoot Mentally ill Black Man 6 times (twice in the back) b/c he had a small computer screwdriver in his hand - Suit filed  

From [HERE] The father of a Black man who was fatally shot by two Dallas police officers during a confrontation at his home this summer has sued the city and the officers in federal court, alleging excessive force, court records show.

Jason Harrison, 38, was shot on June 14 after officers were called to his home on Glencairn Drive, near Interstate 35E and Camp Wisdom Road, about 11:30 a.m.

Harrison came out of the home with a screwdriver and became aggressive when the officers told him to drop it, police officials have said. Both officers drew their guns and shot at Harrison, who died at the scene. He was struck six times, the lawsuit said. The officers were not injured.

The lawsuit, filed by David Harrison, said his son’s mother called 911 to say he was bipolar and schizophrenic and that he may need to go to Parkland Memorial Hospital for medical help. The suit said the officers, John Rogers and Andrew Hutchins, shot Harrison within 2 minutes of arriving at the scene.

Harrison had only a small screwdriver used for computer equipment in his hand, the suit said. It said the officers shot him even though he didn’t pose a threat to anyone.

“We were not told why we were stopped but there’s a gun in our face” [You Were Stopped by White Salisbury Cops for failing to give a turn signal continuously during the last 100 feet of travel before turning = b/c you are Black]  

From [HERE] Darryle Smith was pulled over for a traffic stop in Salisbury. He gave one officer his license and registration. Another officer pointed a gun at him and his two friends who were in the car, he said.

“We have not been told why we’re being stopped, but there’s a gun in our face,” Smith said.

Smith and friends Julian Washington and Brian Louck were searched in the early morning of Aug. 24, along with the car, and nothing illegal was found, Smith said.

They still didn’t know why the car had been stopped. Smith ended up with a traffic-violation warning for failing to give his turn signal continuously during the last 100 feet of travel before turning.

Smith, 21, of Bryans Road, Maryland, Louck, 20, of Edgewater, Maryland, and Washington, 21, of Gambrills, Maryland, have filed a lawsuit against Salisbury Police Officer Justin Aita, the Salisbury Police Department and the city of Salisbury.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday, the third lawsuit in a month to be filed against the Salisbury Police Department and Officer Justin Aita. The lawyers representing Smith, Washington and Louck are James Otway and Luke Rommel, and Rommel is also representing the other two sets of plaintiffs who filed lawsuits against the police department and Aita in September.


Oklahoma's Response to Botched Execution: Hide the Next Lynching from the Public

From [HERE] It's a dark day for Oklahoma. That metaphor is particularly apt this week, as the Sooner State just redoubled its commitment to keeping capital punishment in the shadows by hiding its lethal injection process from public view and oversight.

Five months after Clayton Lockett's (Black man) horrifically botched execution and the state's promise to investigate and improve its execution process, the government responded yesterday with a brand-new "execution policy" that only makes it more difficult for the public to know anything about how the government is carrying out the ultimate punishment. No need to read between the lines – the state has listed explicit measures to deepen the mystery surrounding lethal injection and keep the public at bay.

The policy slashes the number of media witnesses allowed to attend an execution from 12 to 5, and it expressly reserves the right to regulate their access on the fly. Even crazier, the policy gives the state the power to close the execution viewing curtain on a whim, and to remove witnesses – as state officials see fit.

"The government took a process already corrupted by secrecy and made it even more difficult for the public to know anything about it," said my colleague Ryan Kiesel at the ACLU of Oklahoma. That's exactly right – and it's a shameful truth that gives the lie to the state's continual references to the ideals of transparency.

We remember how the state responded to Lockett's botched execution on April 29 – with more secrecy. The new execution policy, and its reduction of public oversight, will only increase the likelihood of more cruel and unusual deaths at the hands of the state.

Black Man to Get $40,000 (thousand) after serving 16 Years in Prison for Wrongful Rape Conviction 

From [HERE] Nathan Brown, 40, was released from a New Orleans prison in June after serving more than 16 years for a 1997 attempted rape of which he was innocent. On Tuesday, Judge Ray Steib of the 24th Judicial District Court apologized to Brown for the years that he lost while being locked away for a crime that he did not commit, and told Brown that he is entitled to $330,000 in wrongful conviction compensation from the state of Louisiana.
The Times-Picayune reports that Brown will receive the maximum amount that the state will pay to exonerees. According to Louisiana’s compensation law, exonerees are allowed up to $25,000 for up to 10 years in prison, regardless of how long the wrongfully convicted person was incarcerated, with a cap set at $250,000. Brown is entitled to request an additional $80,000 to compensate him for the opportunities he lost while imprisoned.
Brown was wrongly convicted in 1997 of attempting to rape a woman, then 40, who lived in his apartment complex. Though Brown had an alibi for the time of the crime, he was tried, convicted and sentenced in one day. His conviction was based entirely on the identification by the victim who claimed that she was positive that Brown was her assailant.
In December of last year the Innocence Project requested DNA testing of crime scene evidence. Results confirmed what Brown had insisted all along, that he was innocent. The DNA profile matched to a man who lived near the apartment building in 1997 and is now serving time in Mississippi for an unrelated crime.

California Governor Vetoes Bill Requiring Warrants for Police Drones 

From [HERE] Despite widely clearing both the state’s Senate and Assembly, California Governor Jerry Brown shot down a bill on Sunday that would have imposed restrictions on when law enforcement agencies can use drones for surveillance.

Brown, a Democrat, said in a statement over the weekend that he was vetoing the drone accountability act that, had it been signed into law, would require police agencies to obtain a warrant before using an unmanned vehicle, or drone, for aerial surveillance.

“There are undoubtedly circumstances where a warrant is appropriate. The bill’s exceptions, however, appear to be too narrowand could impose requirements beyond what is required by either the Fourth Amendment or the privacy provisions in the California Constitution,” Brown said on Sunday.

One of the bill’s authors, Republican Assemblyman Jeff Gorell, said in a tweet on Sunday that “The era of govt. surveillance continues” after the governor’s veto was announced.
