To be honest there isn't much you can do.
A few months ago there where some people that tagged across the street on a fence, caused a bunch of damage and stuff to peoples property. Some
neighbors caught them, along with my brother. My brother went up to the people and asked them to stop while the neighbors called the police. The cops
went over and talked to the people who said that my brother was the one doing the property damage and sent the cops to our house. Meanwhile the people
at the house that actually did the damage where holding the girl and the guy the actually did it in the backyard so that the cops wouldn't know they
where the ones that did anything.
Please note that at the time this was going on: my brother has a heart condition, as well as a broken ankle (with plates and screws) and a bad back.
The officers knocked on our door and my brother answered. He stood in the doorway with the screen door open. The police asked him what was going on
and where the paint came from. My brother answered, told them the truth of what happened. Told them that he had gone over and told them to stop
painting, and that yes, he had yelled at them a bit because they hadn't been listening and, instead, started an argument. You see the people that
lived in the house where people that constantly partied, shot off guns, had fights and police over a lot. I've seen the house raided twice, another
at least 4 times. The people in the house are known gang members and hang out with known gang members.
The police did not believe my brother because by the time the police arrived they had hid the evidence as well as the people that had committed the
crime. They blamed it on my brother, said that my brother was the one that caused the damage. And so they came over to our house questioning my
brother like he was the guilty one. Within a few moments they had dragged my brother out of the doorway, thrown him to the ground yelling "stop
resisting stop resisting" while starting to pull out their stick things. They hit him a few times still yelling "stop resisting, stop resisting".
He wasn't resisting, like I said, he has a bad heart and a bad back. The officer had both knees in his back and was literally shoving his face into
the ground, into rocks. (there where marks afterwords yes, only no one caught it on camera so couldn't do anything...) The other officer was holding
down his legs, on his broken ankle that has plates and screws in it, which messed it up more.
While this was going on my mom had been asleep because she was sick. She woke and came out not long after my brother was placed into the back of the
cruiser. My mom came out and started arguing with them, finding out what was going on. She got maaad, really mad. They had no proof to arrest or even
detain my brother. She went out and basically said "there is no paint on his hands, you get him out of there or you have a lawsuit." Finally they
got him out the back of the car after my mom basically screamed their heads off. Then they went over and talked to the people that had called them,
then actually TALKED to my brother instead of just arresting him. They soon found out what was going on. Within 20 minutes they had gone through and
gotten the true people that had committed the crime. She still had paint on her hands, and the can of spray paint was soon found as well.
I can't say that police are good, I've honestly not met many that aren't judgmental or at least wrong...Hell some woman tried to attack me and my
mom in a store parking lot, went to protect my mom from her and the cop threatened to arrest me because I touched her to keep her away from my
mom....didn't do or say a thing to her at all...just let her walk away with a smile and a smug ass look on her face, and he'd seen everything that
had happened. All I did was step in front of her and get her hand out my face.
