MUST WATCH: Video shows NYPD officer assault during Stop & Frisk
July 27, 2012

The video shows a police officer striding toward a young man standing on a platform at the 45th Street subway station in Brooklyn. A few seconds later, the officer pats him down. Shortly afterward, the young man appears to fidget against a wall and the officer slams him to the ground, ripping a subway ad from the wall in the process. The officer does it again, then puts the young man in a headlock and handcuffs him.

That scene was captured by David Galarza, a local activist, who said he recorded it last Thursday night. At a news conference on Thursday in Brooklyn, Mr. Galarza and other local activists said the officer’s confrontation with the young man, Sean Pagan, 19, was another example of the police’s mistreatment of the predominantly Hispanic and Asian residents of Sunset Park.

This time, however, they say they have a video to support their contention.

“These are young people of color who are victimized many times, and this kind of excessive force, sometimes it’s captured, sometimes not,” Mr. Galarza said before screening the video for reporters at a Latino community center in Sunset Park. “There was an arrest of a young man, but not of the officer who did the groping, and who did the choking.”

What a shocking video that shows the horror people of color in NYC endure if they are stopped & frisked. 

According to NYCLU, in 2011 New Yorkers were stopped by police 685,724 times.  

- 605,328 were totally innocent (88 percent).
- 350,743 were black (53 percent).
- 223,740 were Latino (34 percent).
- 61,805 were white (9 percent).
- 341,581 were aged 14-24 (51 percent).

Spread this around, and if you have the software, create mirrors and distribute download links. I’m sure this video won’t be up for long. 

what pisses me off is that minorities need to be calm at all times. if we get slammed on the ground we have to stay calm or else it’s called “resisting arrest.” we have to stand there and get searched and beat up by men with guns (cops) or else they could legally arrest us.

Oh, and that guy was charged for resisting arrest.


the 2nd amendment and racism kill another black teen.
“Yeah, I shot him,” is what John Henry Spooner told police at the scene.
Darius Simmons, 13, died of a gun shot in the chest in front of his house in Milwaukee, Wis. on May 31. Spooner, his 75-year-old neighbor of a month, killed Darius with a 9mm handgun. He accused Darius of stealing handguns from his home. Darius was at school during the time of the break-in.
Patricia Larry, Darius’s mother, witnessed the shooting. She was held for questioning in the back of a squad car for about two hours while her son was sent to the hospital. He was pronounced dead before she was able to see him.
Spooner spoke to his friend Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan about his stolen handguns and his frustration during breakfast an hour before the shooting. Donovan says Spooner suspected the people living next to him.
Spooner was diagnosed with lung cancer and lost his wife a few year back. He has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide. On Monday, June 11, he pleaded not guilty and waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
