More proof that medical marijuana isn't the answer: Michael Saffioti found himself in jail for missing a court date on charges of possessing marijuana without a medical exemption. He then found himself collapsed on the floor from an allergic reaction to the food he was served in jail. His jailers left him to die. The saddest part? His mother encouraged him to turn himself in.
Listening to FTL2013-04-02 show with Ademo Freeman, I was on Youtube and found this. I thought it would be here already and if it is please delete. I did not see it (It is relatively new). An army of cops invade a residential neighborhood and you can see well into the video when one of the cops are left with the man on the ground he starts beating him. (like the guy could of been any problem in the position he was in). It is a scary scene and wonder what would have happened if any of the cops saw the person who was filming them?
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- For more than nine months, we've been following the story of Chad Holley, a teen who said he was beaten by police officers during an arrest.
Four officers have been charged with crimes for the beating, and now, for the first time in this ABC13 Exclusive, we're getting to see the video.
The police officer was driving 94mph with no lights or sirens, and was not headed towards a call when they smashed into two people making a left hand turn. The police officer Jason Anderson has been charged with manslaughter and is currently on paid leave from the department.
Cops begin beating someone, woman takes out her phone to record the incident. Moments after she snapped a few photos, she claims an officer grabbed her by the ponytail, slammed her against the police cruiser and pushed her into the back seat.
Oh, and the cops who arrested her?: Both had four complaints each against them regarding physical abuse.
In a Chicago suburb, a police officer's own camera caught him beating an unarmed motorist repeatedly with a metal baton. -- "The victim is completely compliant," Assistant State's Attorney Alexander Vroustouris said Thursday.
