A Bronx man has accused a half-dozen NYPD officers of taking turns beating and kicking him after he asked an officer why he had been searched when she was responding to a noise complaint, according to ABC7. According to Santiago Hernandez, 23, he was standing in front of a home in the Melrose section of the Bronx on August 18th when a uniformed NYPD officer stopped and asked to frisk him.
They found nothing but then a policewoman grabbed his arm and put on handcuffs..... and no mention of why he was being arrested, or at least handcuffed.

Too bad no one wants to do anything about this behavior. You can expect an escalation of LEO on innocent violence. We as a society need to come together and disband this threat. This sort of behavior was considered trademark of countries where the people had no rights when I was in school learning about Nazi's, N. Korea, etc etc.

NYCLU - Stop and Frisk Practices


An analysis by the NYCLU revealed that innocent New Yorkers have been subjected to police stops and street interrogations more than 4 million times since 2002, and that black and Latino communities continue to be the overwhelming target of these tactics. Nearly nine out of 10 stopped-and-frisked New Yorkers have been completely innocent, according to the NYPD’s own reports.


What more needs to be said? Perhaps the most egregious institutionalized violation of civil liberties in this country.

All thanks to Police State Bloomberg.

You're not safe anywhere. Standing on the street, jogging across the street, not even in your own home.

Right, theyre now implementing the foreign policy play book against us.

Provoke, provoke, provoke and when someone responds, do they acknowledge their own behavior? Never. Its just blame the enemy then escalate.

In this case, the enemy is us, the American people.

The Gestapo at it again. Thes Police act as if they are the Enforcer, Judge, Jury, and Executioner. This needs immediate attention on a national level, and may require some sort of national vote to enact laws against police brutality, and punishment enforced on the police for this kind of behavior

Too bad so many people focus on making police brutality into a racial thing when it is obviously more than that.

If the majority could focus on the REAL issue maybe we could fix it.

IMO perhaps we need to really focus on the type of candidates that we are hiring and entrusting with Guns and power to arrest us and protect us.

Perhaps we need to not only raise the bar on who we are hiring to be a cop but we also need tp re-look at the burn out rate and pay that officers have to deal with.

Some questions that I think we should be looking at when it comes to field officers.
1. Perhaps a cop shouldn't be working a 40 hour work week solely dealing with criminals and high crime areas.

2. Perhaps a cop should only be required 2-3 days of foot patrol in high crime areas and maybe a couple of days in areas where they aren't dealing with criminals or looked as a negative thing.

3. Perhaps we shouldn't be hiring and giving guns to people that are willing to risk their life for low income and high stress positions that deal with high negativity on a daily basis?

With that said, the public also needs to be trained on how to deal with police officers and camaras for everyone.

Racism comes into it, becasue invariably the victims of such police brutality are black. The reason? Partly becasue of racism; confirmation bias on behalf of police and in addition, their belief (and likley reality) of less consequnces by a demographic that are less able to use legal recourse, nor have wider societal support to do so.

The advent of widely available cheap smartphones with decent quality cameras are exposing what has been occuring all along but was not recorded. Police procedure has yet to catch up with this and they are still oblivious to it.

Black americans are still a vulnerable group and these police time and again target them becasue of the lack of accountability they think (and have experienced) when using unjustified brute force tactics against them. In another country it would be a different demographic, perhaps Jews, perhaps christians, perhaps women - whoever is seen at the bottom of the society ladder and the recipients of inequity

I don't buy it. These cops have a power control issue and regardless of color they think their word is the law. Color plays very little into the motivation behind those confrontation.

IMO the white cop on black instances are just more publicised by the MSM to capitalized on peoples emotions.

Look at the Ferguson white cop who told the press corp not only to STFU but if they didn't he would kill them . Or the other video around here the other day of the cops who shot a thief and in the end are fist bumping. Or the numerous black cop on white confrontation, or black cop on black confrontation that barely get a blirp on the radar.

Not to mentioin other control issues:



Cops Beat Their Wives & Girlfriends At Double The National Rate, Still Receive Promotions
thefreethoughtproject.com...



IMO the compensation and qualifications set for cops helps attrack the wrong people to load up with power and guns. Focusin on racial profiling is only a small part of the bigger issue.

Regardless even if its racially motivated which I doubt is the primary factor in these incidents.

The issue is not racism but rather the hiring process and qualifications set for new hires that we send to the streets with guns and power.

The city needs to be sued into bankruptcy.

The only way things will change is if it hurts them in the pocket book.

Otherwise nothing ever changes.

The real issue here is the calibre of people with a badge and guns, the manner in which people are arrested. To me this is caught on camera from the start. Thing is it starts off with a couple of police, they frisk the two youths find nothing, then he is so bold as to ask why, and the stupid, stupid policewoman then just pulls the handcuffs.
All that needs to be done then is to call for backup, the Keystone brigade arrive batons blazing and take over, without a need to know what has happened before. All so easy...and crooked MO.
At least in this case, the charges have been dropped, doesn't seem to matter that the guy was duffed up, and I'll bet you that though the batons were flying, the apologies won't be.

i really do not understand you Americans , this kind of thing is happening all the time .

but you do nothing .

you vent your anger on these subjects on forums , but still you do nothing.

you cite your constitutional rights , but still you do nothing .

is it not time to petition your government to do something about this blatant abuse of power ?

1. For the most part forums don't provide the full picture or severity of the issue or the actual impact nationally.

2. You are asking the people to petition their same gov't that took away their constitutional right via a blatant abuse of power to give them back?

3. I don't know which country you are from but I highly doubt you couldn't use a large quantity of vaseline to cope with some of your govt's political madness assuming the US isn't directly giving it your gov't first.

4. The gov't is for the most part controlled by corporate sponsoship and between the two they control what the people, hear, see, and think via the MSM , news, etc.. Diversions and fighting


Bottom line the puppet master use Macvillain tactics and they know how far to push and are masters at diversions to keep the people fighting among themselves. If you believe your country is immune to that , I'm sure it won't last.

Yes that's pretty clear in the TV VIDEO REPORT. Any wonder then he wanted to know why he was being arrested.

Yes that's all given in the report Stremmo, however all 'charges' relating to what is seen on the CCTV have now been dropped, so it shouldn't effect any parole...but just think what might have happened had there been no CCTV? back in the poky having done nothing?
