From [CBS] Dr. Lawrence Crosby spoke publicly about what happened to him on Oct. 10, 2015 and the lasting effects following a 911 call where someone mistakenly thought he was breaking into a car. The City of Evanston has settled his police brutality case for $1.25 million. [MORE]
He also was given a “niggerization” lesson about his rights by the gang of white cops who criminally assaulted and falsely arrested him with impunity. During the assault with punches, kicks and smothering he told the white cops the 4th Amendment protects against unreasonable searches , stops and seizures. Rights are an illusion. On the street rights only exist if cops share the illusion. Lawless Race soldiers so frequently abuse their power that no Black or Latino motorist, juvenile, adult, professional of any kind—could make a compelling argument that constitutional rights afford Black or Latino people any real protection from the Government. As explained by Dr. Blynd, “Enjoyment of rights in a neo-imperialistic world controlled by Yurugu through the Greater System (Symbolic Order), paradoxically, entails not only a recognition of their inevitability but, equally, their impossibility.
Niggerized -"unsafe, unprotected, subjected and subjugated to random violence, hated for who you are to the point you become so scared that you defer to the powers that be while willing to consent to your own domination." - Dr. Cornell West quoted in FUNKTIONARY.
From [HERE] Pinned to the ground by white officers who kneed and struck him, Lawrence Crosby screamed whatever he could think of to convince them that he was a law-abiding PhD student, not a violent car thief.
“This is my vehicle, sir,” he said, his voice captured by the dashboard-camera video. “I have evidence. . . . I purchased this vehicle Jan. 23, 2015, from Libertyville Chevrolet.”
The white officers placed him in handcuffs in the driveway of a church, two blocks from the police station in Evanston, Ill.
Police released the dash-cam video earlier this week, detailing the half-hour encounter that sparked a civil lawsuit from Crosby and a discussion about race and policing in this city of 75,000, just north of Chicago.
The video includes footage from the dash cam of one of the officers involved in the altercation. But it’s also synced with video of a personal dash cam Crosby kept running in his car.
On that night in October 2015, Crosby was headed to Northwestern University, where he was studying for his doctoral degree in civil engineering. A white woman called 911 and reported that an African American [man] with a black hood was trying to break into a car’. Listen below. The racist suspect also followed him in her car after he drove away [see 2nd video below]
Crosby stops the car in the driveway of a church, and slowly gets out facing the officers with hands in the air.
He begins to explain, but the officers order him to keep his hands up. Others scream at him to get on the ground.
He turns and, in an instant, five white officers sprint toward him. They drive him back several feet, kneeing him to force him to the ground and striking him with open hands to make him [officially] comply, a police spokesman said later.
“Stop resisting,” an officer yells as another strikes Crosby.
“I’m cooperating. I’m cooperating,” Crosby replies. He continues to explain that the car is his, where he got it from and when. He attends Northwestern and is a civil engineering PhD, he says. He was just trying to fix his car.
He asks the officers why he’s being handcuffed; they say they have to figure out who the car belongs to.
They determine it’s his, but he was still arrested and charged with disobeying officers and resisting arrest. A judge later threw out the charges, Crosby’s attorney Tim Touhy, told the Chicago Tribune.
The officers were never charged or disciplined. The Evanston Police Department has defended their actions.
