Why Should a Public Servant Bother To Explain the Purpose of the Stop When He Can Just Assault? From [HERE] This is the moment white race soldier cops Tasered a young Black man in the back in an unlawful arrest.
A lawsuit for $110,000 has now been settled. Bodycam footage on an officer's uniform captured Darsean Kelley get struck with the stun gun when he was detained.
Mr Kelley and his cousins were stopped on the street in Colorado when officers responded to reports of a crime.
Officers did not have a description of the suspects but ordered the men to put their hands up in February last year.
In the disturbing video, released only this week, Mr Kelley can be heard screaming: "I know my rights" before he writhes on the floor in pain.
He was eventually arrested and charged for failing to obey lawful orders. He spent three days in jail before he could bond out.
ACLU settlement appears to be dog shit. But now the City of Aurora will pay $110,000 to settle claims brought by Kelley's lawyers in a lawsuit. Sounds like a shitty settlement.
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Colorado legal director Mark Silverstein said: "Through constructive, respectful dialogue, the ACLU of Colorado and the City of Aurora, through the City Attorney’s office, were able to work together to resolve this case promptly and without expensive and time-consuming litigation.
"The ACLU commends the City of Aurora for its willingness to come to the table in good faith to find a resolution that is fair to Mr Kelley and beneficial for taxpayers of the city."
He added that Aurora Police Department has "at every turn refused to acknowledge any wrongdoing or need for policy change even in the face of public outrage and irrefutable video evidence of misconduct".
ACLU lawyers last year successfully defended Mr Kelley in the criminal case, winning dismissal after filing a motion arguing that the unlawful street detention. [what an accomplishment after clearly being stopped for no reason & committing no crimes. And what a way to balance the scales; after being terrorized while excercising his "freedom of movement," stopped & searched in violation of his so-called 4th Amendment rights, assaulted by public servants b/c of his skin color and illegally incarcerated for 3 days, the white cops acknowledge no fault, don't have to pay a penny, keep their jobs so they can do the same thing tmw to another non-white person and the Gov gives them a discounted, unbargained ghetto settlement. Sounds like some nigger shit. Thanks ACLU [beware of the do-gooders]
