He knocked out his teeth when he jumped off the bridge. I could hear him spitting out blood throughout the video. All this time and effort to rescue this moron, because he would not simply show the officer both hands. You can't fix stupid.
He moaned too before anyone got to him. I'm glad for the body cams because when bystanders start filming with a cell, that person(s) usually catch only a snippet of what is happening. One would think that none of those arrested and/or died under such circumstances are ever guilty of anything, that it is always the police. This guy hurt himself jumping 19 feet off that bridge. The police had nothing to do with it. Good for the body cam!
Sounds like the family is in it to win the lottery. Some ambulance chaser will take their case and file hoping the city will settle. Since Michael Brown's family got so much it's open season on police. You'd better believe I'd have my camera on if I was a police officer these days!
There has been several videos posted by police to contradicted what people accused to of. The body cams protect both side as both civilians and and the police have lied about incidents. Some police have made up false reports and some civilians had made false abuse claims by police.
The point of body cams was to protect the public. So far it has worked to protect the police from false accusations. Liberals wish to push the narrative with blacks that they are under attack by cops. That cops are the bad guy. They push to make blacks fear and hate cops and to resist. This has worked against blacks. This gets blacks hurt. Liberals are not a friend to blacks. They are setting them up to get hurt. When they do, they prove their point. Again, blacks are being used and abused. Not right.
Renee- are you saying the cops are at fault for this? Is is possible his 19ft jump to escape them caused his injuries? I guess the only safe way to avoid problems is to have a special set of "black rules". I guess the police are supposed to let them get by without following their orders. Are orders only to be obeyed by white suspects?
Jeff-- I really think you need to re-read Renee' S post. I understood her to be saying thank god the cams serve to protect police though their original intended purpose, in liberal eyes, was to actually harm police departments. Furthermore she goes on to outline the fallacies in the black community's continued belief that seemingly liberal advocates are pro Black people and communities.
OTOH I could be totally wrong, thats one of the joys of the written word; it's open to interpretation.
no they dont but you just keep on writing this malarchy.
The average Dem is Just like the average Rep.The only thing that seperates them is the belief that one of these crap parties is doing right by them..Come on Renee,do a little due diligence,find this story somewhere else.
The suspect voluntarily runs and jumps. Then he screams in agony about his leg, medics are called. Then as the police try to figure out a way to get him up the hill he starts screaming about his arm. The the copes say something about him showing his hands to them. i can't see any law suit?!?! he needed medical care and the police where providing this from self inflicted injuries.
Still some "Amba lance" chasing attorney will take their money (no atty would take THIS one on contingency as they know in advance there is no way to win it) so they will have to pay hourly attorney's fees. Therefore if they have no money, it won't go far, if they do, they are about to be bilked out of it by thinking this idiot is an "angel". I don't think the police districts are going to just "pay up" anymore. Not now that they have cams to prove the lies.
The people who have made these allegations of police brutality need to be sued for their lies and slander regarding the way in which the police handled this thug. His injuries are clearly due to his own behavior of acting stupidly when being detained. The automatic response that the police are always wrong is just as disgusting and reprehensible as the real problem of when they do step over the line. Such acts of "crying wolf" lessen the seriousness with which actual abuses are received. The idiots who are most likely looking for a payday from the city are only hurting their loved ones case and the chances of overcoming the color divide between black, white and blue we are currently experiencing in this country.
So True! They did the same thing with the race card, it is about overdoing ANYTHING if it works even once! "They" lie so much that again, people just stop paying attention. These days both the race card and complaints against the cops are pretty much ignored thanks to them overusing and lying so badly! Will they ever learn?
"Tazed him and pushed him off a bridge"....Riiiight. Here's another upstanding US citizen just minding his own business when the hatefully racist police start messing with him. Incredible. Glad the body-cam was there to set the record straight.
If Obama were still in office, the body cam footage wouldn't help, just as the witness testimony didn't help with Michael Brown. "Hands up, don't shoot!" was never uttered by Brown, but that didn't stop the media and the BLM crowd from pushing that narrative. The same would happen with this scumbag. Without Obama in office, we may be spared the BS brutality claim this time.
Ya, let's see! He didn't listen to police, he jumped off the bridge on his own free will, idiot, and he then had to be tased!! Sounds to me like another idiot who is going to claim he feared for his life! Bull$hit!! He should be charged for lying about the incident and risking others lives because the cops had to go get that complete moron!! Typical of these libtards!! Thank God for police cams because Black lives matter would have believed this idiot and his idiot family!! karma will one day get them for lying!!
Pretty funny. All the race hustlers have been screaming for bodycams on cops. Now a bodycam cancels out a huge lawsuit and ruins the planning for some excellent riots. Although now the story will switch to how he was forced to jump due to his fear of being murdered by racist cops, so the riots may still be on. You can't win with these types. Oh well. Meanwhile, enjoy your new toothless life, Tyrone. What if this ends his career as an aspiring rapper?
Hrm, watched the entire mess. Apparently this "man" who was "beaten half to death" by police officers, according to his, ah, mentally challenged family and friends any way, has absolutely no bruising or marks on his face other than knocked out teeth? Questionable at best. Looks more and more like this family was trying to set up the police department's city or town for a payout so they can settle back for life at the police department's expense. Lord, when will the rioting for this lie begin?
We REALLY need to come up with laws now that bring additional criminal charges against criminals and their families now for falsely accusing the police departments of police brutality. Maybe that might be additional incentive to these absolute idiots who refuse to comply with basic orders from law enforcement, create their OWN PROBLEMS by doing so and then inciting hatred and violence by posting this BS online. Huh?
Funny, all I heard the entire time was the officer's concern for this idiot who decided to toss himself off a bridge onto rocks below. WTF was he hiding that he decided to hurl himself over a bridge instead of just stopping and showing his damned hands when instructed to?
What is with all of these false claims against the very officers that try to save them from themselves? This guy's family needs to be arrested for false accusations against the police! I don't think the guy himself is in any position to play the blame game yet, but if he starts lying also, then he should be arrested right along with them!
Soooooooooo happy that the police are wearing body cams in this instance. I live in Chicago and have many police officer friends and they say that it sometimes hurts the perps for other reasons too. Such as the police no longer having the discression to "let people go". Such as a minor related offense that was "against the law" and if on camera, they have to arrest. With Chicago's crime it is not worth it to arrest for every little offense, cuz' it takes one police officer off the street to fill out reports and do the arrest. The whole arrest process takes multiple hours...which are multiple hours we have one less officer to fight the real crime. On a seperate note, I hope this guy gets the hammer. It is disgraceful and should be a huge crime in itself to lie about these things. Same with that little brat girl last week with her lie about the cops.
A civil society cannot survive with all the "bearing of false witness" that's being promoted by this or that group with a grievance or agenda.
I just read an article wherein a young black man was released from six years in prison for a rape allegation made by a woman who recanted.
This is insanity. Men and the cops are the latest targets of those who would willingly and maliciously bear false witness.
The Ten Commandments were never more needed as the bedrock of a functioning civil society than they are right now.
Thank God for the body cameras.
This is another perfect example of why ALL POLICE OFFICERS should have to wear body cameras.
This low life is doing what some mane do. PLAY THE GHETTO LOTTERY.
Had it not been for the cameras, this POS would get paid with tax payer dollars.
Body cameras protect the Officer & the citizens. Good for everyone to see the truth.
I hope the Police file charges against this scum bag for false allegations and this punk goes to prison for a long time.
The truth goes both ways. Good job Officers. We certainly stand behind you on this one for sure.
God would I feel stupid if I posted that after seeing the video. The first five minutes says it all! what a cop out!! Instead of owning to the fact that the guy did something wrong, it's automatically someone else and the person is innocent right?! Cop out to taking responsibility. He broke his leg, he chose to jump off the bridge and try and run away. Not only is he learning his lesion woth a broken leg but they'll probably get him on some charge for fleeing or what not. Stupid and now he's going to pay. Own your actions own your mistakes and own how you deal woth and fix them. I still can't get over the persons post. Again I would feel so so stupid if I were them
Talk about stupid. You sit there and claim brutality when you know all the cops have cameras now. yeah there are some bad cops out there I'll admit that but this screaming about brutality from the cops all the time has got to stop and people you just gotta stop being stupid. I was reading what they wrote talking about how they didn't call the next of kin and yet they sat in the waiting room for 4 hours. So how did know if they didn't call the next of kin. Or if the driver of the car told them and they were already at the hospital then no they wouldn't have called anyone else. They leave it up to family to call any other family. Then they talk about how the doctors wouldn't tell them anything about his injuries and yet they turned around and started to rattle off everything that was going with him. Like how he couldn't take the neck brace off till they knew about spinal injurie. Then the leg and all that shit. Seems to me she was pretty well informed for someone that the doctors wouldn't talk to. What a load of shit all the way around. I'd say the officers handled themselves very well. Let me say officers thank you for your services even though I don't live live in your town and thank you to all the men in blue for service.
What difference does it make. Like the lunacy of people referencing the middle east war as, "protecting out freedom". The same lunacy can be applied to police misdeeds, at the end of the day, it means little less than overtime..
I'm sick of these people who do not obey an officer's commands and then cry abuse. If you don't do what they say, what happens after is on you.
Coach - here in Cincinnati they are still trying to railroad the cops even with the body cams. Ray Tensing has been persecuted by the prosecutor, yet you can see his body flailing around. Body cameras only work if they accept what they show. Cincinnati's prosecutor is corrupt and even condemned the man before a trial was started.
What a waste of resources. The money and effort to get this scumbag to a hospital and then waste more resources that would be far better servng law abiding citizens or children. You know this thug has no way to pay for all what he cost the city. They should have left him under the bridge he decided to leap off, he wanted to go there in the first place.
Want to hear "Racist"? We know it wasn't his father reporting as everybody knows most blacks don't know Who their fathers are! Probably the "Family Member" was his twice removed cousin (Twice removed to the county jail) wanting to collect on the Ghetto Lottery! It's time for town, cities and states to stop paying just because it Might be cheaper to just pay them off... In fact start a counter suit to pay All cost of litigation! I know I know, getting these deadbeats to pay would be impossible, and the ACLU will say garnishing their welfare would be a no no.
