Female DUI Suspect Gets Face Smashed By Cops For Moving Too Slowly

0 Shares

Driving under the influence is a bad idea; we all know that. But it still isn’t an excuse for police officers to take judicial process into their own hands and issue a beat down of a suspect.

On Aug. 10, in Tallahassee, Fla., police officers responded to the scene of an accident where 44-year-old Christina West crashed her vehicle into a house. The woman failed a roadside sobriety test and was placed under arrest. Case closed and pending judicial review as far as the officers are concerned, right?

After West was placed into the back of an officer’s patrol car, the police began questioning individuals at the scene.

Minutes later, one officer can be heard on dash cam video explaining to another — presumably in training — how to formally request that West take a Breathalyzer test. West is asked and agrees to take the test.

When the 5-foot, 6-inch mother of two weighing 130 pounds didn’t follow orders quickly enough because she was asking the officers a question about her husband and children, the lawmen got fed up and decided to break her face.

The video speaks for itself:

After being flung to the ground, West squealed in pain for several seconds as officer Christopher Ormerod kneeled on her buttocks and officer Matthew Smidt leaned on the back of her head, according to a description accompanying the video.

“That hurt so bad, I’m gonna sue your ass,” West told the officers following the incident. “I’m pooping my pants because you hit me so hard. My face is swollen. I think you broke my right cheek.”

“You’re fine,” one of the officers tells her in the video.

A statement has since been issued by Tallahassee Police Chief Dennis Jones:

We understand that the video is disturbing to watch and it is for us too. We use cameras to help capture events such as this and are making the entire video available as we continue our internal investigation. Our job is to serve and protect, and that includes victims and suspects. We regret that Ms. West was injured.

Fred Conrad, West’s attorney, said he intends to ensure that the woman is able to make good on her promise of suing the officers.

“I can say I intend to pursue just compensation for Ms. West,” Conrad told The Tallahassee Democrat. “And I can say I intend to do it relentlessly. I intend to make the Police Department pay for this. This is wrong. And they need to pay for it.”

    Another example of cops acting like thugs instead of law enforcement officers. They think those pieces of tin they wear give them the right to treat people as they please. These cops should not only be sued, they should go to prison.

    • rivahmitch

      The problem with the suit is that it’s the taxpayers, rather than the thugs, who pay. Public officials, acting illegally or outside the scope of their legitimate duties should be personally liable. OTOH, I’d support the suggestions of Jimmy and CWA as well.

      • Old Wolf

        They are. But you have to sue in a federal court, and use title 42, section 1983 for deprivations of protected rights. You have to sue them in their individual capacity, and all you have to prove is a preponderance of evidence that there was a right of which they should be aware, and a deprivation of that right under color of law or authority. Such deprivation does not have to be willful, nor does it have to be biased on race, national origin, or anything else.

        In effect, the 1871 civil rights act is still existent under US code, and provides both criminal and civil penalties for such behaviors, dissolves official immunity by state or federal governments, and no such government can provide immunity for actions taken under color of law, or by conspiracy or in disguise against any right, privilege, or immunity guaranteed or protected by the constitution or laws of the United States.

        Had these statutes been followed, as they were intended by the framers of those laws, the Jim Crow era would have been over before it began, ‘separate but equal’ would have been a footnote in history, and some of our darkest times after the civil war would have been avoided.

        It protected all people, not merely the freed slaves, or those of african descent, against those who would deprive them of their rights, by law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom in any state, territory, district, or possession. It applies equally to all actors capable of acting under official guise in any of the above, including federal officers up to and including the president.

  • CWA

    When I see pigs behaving like that, I am all for killing them! They are cowards and bullies.

    • mark

      Well you have to admit, CWA, that radical African-Americans were way ahead of libertarians and conservatives on this issue. Going back to the Black Panthers in the 1960s, they have long supported “offing the pigs” who persecute their community. Glad to see that libertarians and conservatives are finally getting on board with tens of thousand of young black males, rappers, and the New Black Panther Party in calling for a campaign of violence against white cops, who make up a majority of all police forces, as in this video, and who are typically those most charged with brutality cases. Raise the new conservative banner: “Let’s off the white pigs!”

  • Jimmy the Greek

    The cops need to be turned over to her familey to be beaten as she was , that is what would be the fair and right thing !

    • mark

      I agree, Jimmy, and the other fair and right thing would be to take the owner of the house that the drunk woman drove her car into and hand them over to the drunk woman’s family to be beaten as well. The guy had a lot of nerve putting his house right there in the path of this drunken woman’s car. Arrogant people do this all the time: build their houses in areas that interfere with drunk drivers who are just out speeding in their cars and weaving through the streets with their small children trying to get to another bar. Why do people put their houses so close to the street to interfere with these innocent drunk drivers just trying to have some family fun?

      • Cathy Hovey

        That’s twice. She did NOT have her kids in the car with her. And, NO, she should not have been drinking and driving. But she WAS cooperating, so they had o reason to go as far as they did.
        Still trying to figure you out. First you’re all for the black panthers, who are a lawless group of blacks (just like the KKK is a lawless group of whites). Now you’re against the drunk driver, is it because she’s a white woman?

        • mark

          I’m against all drunk drivers regardless of their race or gender. And the Black Panther Party of the 1960s saw themselves as a resistance group organized to stop the brutality and oppression against their community from California white police officers just like George Washington and the Continental Army organized to oppose and protect themselves from British oppression. Washington’s army was also a ” lawless group” in the eyes of the British empire. I am sure that this will be the same excuse that the charged police officers will make regarding this drunk driver – that she was a “lawless” individual, a lawbreaker who got what she deserved.

      • Jimmy the Greek

        No she should be given to the man that owns the house , as payment , then it would be up to him what her place would be in her new masters house lol

  • wildpaul

    Just another example of Obummer’s plan to make the USA, the police state of the USSA. He is empowering the police, IRS, NSA, to treat us all like peasants. Obummer is a Muslim Communist and needs to go, along with all of his stupid Marxist ideas!

    • mark

      Yeah, this is all Obama’s fault. A drunk in my neighborhood crashed his car into a neighbor’s house four months ago. But I agree with you that was also Obama’s fault. He is training all these people to over drink and then crash into people’s homes. They purposely target Republican homes. All these tens of thousands of people who drink and drive in America every night are not irresponsible people with drinking problems who should be held accountable for their actions: no, not at all they are all agents of the Obama administration.

      • wolf2525

        Hey Mark is this what you liberal fools called being held accountable, then we don’t need your kind of accountable at all.

  • Stephen Lawson

    Give a man a gun and a badge… Power corrupts and complete power corrupts completely. Somehow there needs to be a better balance of justice in law enforcement. In this case the police became needlessly aggressive and should be arrested and prosecuted as such and held personally accountable for their actions. That would send a much needed message to law enforcement officers everywhere to act responsibly with civility and to treat citizens with proper dignity and respect. Police rule with fear and all too often are abusive. Everyone has a similar story to tell. I doubt their job is easy, but they need to earn our respect. How can you beat it out of somebody, especially a drunk?

    • mark

      How do you think African Americans and Hispanic Americans feel about their local police forces? Since typically around 90% of all police brutality cases deal with assaults against these minority citizens – and against many illegal aliens as well. Police brutality against white U.S. citizens, such as this case, is relatively rare in comparison but when it occurs it usually gets much more attention than that towards the minority community where such behavior is a day-to-day constant – and supported by many middle class and working class whites who feel that when it comes to minorities, the police should “keep those people in line” and away from their neighborhoods. Just driving or walking through a white neighborhood can bring an American of color considerable harassment night stick blows, and even deadly gunfire, if the “suspect” dares to assert his right to drive or walk wherever he or she feels. “After all, it’s a free country, isn’t it?” they often tell white police officers just before they are smacked down to the pavement with a baton blow to the face that knocks out their teeth and tears loose their facial flesh.

  • Rodhea

    Bad behavior never justifies bad results. As stated here and in comments on Facebook…these officers had a responsibility for her well-being…not to man-handle her with absolutely unnecessary brute force. What was a handcuffed 130 pound woman gonna do against two 230 pound men … kick their a***s? The officer involved in the injuries sustained should be fired immediately…with federal charges filed against him. The other one should be suspended without pay for a month and then given additional training to correct his participation and for not stopping the other officer’s actions.

    • dan

      …not enough !
      public flogging and a stint in the stocks

    • $4001792

      Agree. They should be fired, and go to jail. This was assault and battery.
      Yet, the Tallahassee police department is saying they “stand by these practices.”

      • mike

        I encourage all Tallahassee citizens carry a firearm start a militia and change these outrages acts!! That is what our fore fathers did.

        • $4001792

          I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if people started killing cops in order to see justice served. We certainly don’t ever see this crazy sh*t ending in any punishment for these officers, and with their superiors making excuses for all the brutality we’re seeing, it’s becoming a nationwide crisis.
          This is how we know that America has become a Police State (started happening following 9/11 and only gets worse every day) — we see a callous disregard for the Constitution by our government (both left and right), a callous disregard for people’s lives, and the increasingly obvious militarization of this nation’s police force where they can act as brutal and crazy as they want without any repercussions.

            I’m a progressive, and yes black folks in America and The Black Panther Party in particular were out ahead of this because they’ve always faced incredible brutality and injustice in this nation. And now, what they’ve always faced is reaching to everyone.
            Btw, I don’t think of this as a left/right issue in any sense. What the cops are doing affects all of us, so it’s something that all Americans should be able to come together on.

        • mark

          The Panthers tried this in the 1960s, Mike – carrying guns in public to protect themselves from the police, from the “pigs” as they called them for their constant and well-documented brutality against their community. But they received zero support from conservative gun owners for taking this stance. In fact they met massive opposition from conservatives. Gee, I wonder why? Could it be….no…it couldn’t be that white conservative guns owner are OK with confronting cops with their guns but they don’t want any black people daring to do the same.

          • Kenny Ray Oxenrider

            mark you are sentencing yourself to life in racial prison by not getting over this racial BS. This had nothing to do with race yet you want to divert it to a race problem. You are the problem with your race…. you and your race baiting buddies like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

          • mark

            The “problem” with my race? How do you know what race I belonged to, Kenny? Are you clairvoyant? The fact is that conservatives are very comfortable with a well-armed white citizenry defending their rights but are very fearful of a heavily-armed black citizenry defend-ing their rights. I am just pointing out this glaring inconsistency that libertarians and conservatives hate to confront – and typically reply to as you did by categorizing black citizens as criminals when the majority are not. The woman in question here is a criminal, a drunk driver, but because she is white, commenters rush to her defense. How do you think the majority white police routinely treat black drunk drivers? Rodney King would be a case in point. Or black prostitutes, black burglary suspects, black drug suspects? Some of them may be criminals but this white woman is clearly a criminal as well yet commentators correctly defend her right to be treated humanely by the police. I wish the commentators here would do the same when black criminals are mistreated by the police. Seems to be a double standard here.

          • BushPilot

            You are being selective and ignoring my point. More blacks are arrested and charged because more blacks are committing crimes. You can’t argue with that.

          • mark

            Yes and that is because more blacks live in poverty, sir. Poverty is the number one indicator of crime in America as it is everywhere in the world. In the 1840s-1860s guess what ethnic group had the highest crime rates in America? Recent Irish immigrants – because they were then the poorest group in the America (outside of slaves who had difficulty committing crimes when they were constantly guarded and even chained). As the Irish rose slowly into the middle class, their crime rates dropped dramatically. Low income and poverty are far more accurate indicators of crime than race. Middle class and upper class blacks in the United States have crime rates remarkably similar to middle class and upper class whites. Impoverished whites also have much higher crime rates than their more well-to-do brethren. The majority of whites in our prison system are those from the lower end of the income spectrum with very low education levels as well

          • BushPilot

            You can rationalize the facts but you can’t change them.

          • mark

            I’m neither rationalizing the facts nor changing them. I’m simply stating them. Poverty is the leading determinant to crime in the United States and has been throughout its entire history. You can enter any region of the Republic of Ireland today, a country that is overwhelmingly white, and the most dangerous areas of any of its cities are the poorest ones. This is true all around the world, in Asian cities where not a single black person lives. Race is not the key determinant to crime, poverty is. This isn’t a rationalization. It is a statement of fact borne out in hundreds of demographic and statistical studies from census bureaus to police studies. Show me a poor person and you are showing me someone who has a much higher statistical probability to commit crime than a well-to-do person.

    • glock 19 fan

      Isn’t there a Federal law against violating a person’s civil rights while in uniform? Was that violation because of her gender? I seem to recall a case where a cop in CA was sent to prison for life because he violated a woman’s civil rights while in uniform and with fatal results.

    • Kenny Ray Oxenrider

      You are so right.

  • wavesofgrain

    I hope she sues for millions and millions! And I know the taxpayers will be the ones to suffer, not the Union Thug Cops. I wonder if she can bring a civil suit on the officers as well? Maybe the taxpayers will get sick and tired of paying 10 times over for a police force hired to ‘protect and serve’, that now only lies in wait for speeders and drunk drivers…avoiding the high crime areas… (that is what is happening in my large urban high crime area…State Police forces were brought in, but now THEY are just catching speeders and patroling the bars for DUI’s. Crime rate is NOT going down!) It is time to privatize our security and a police forces.

    The police are nothing but a Mafia Union Brotherhood, an arm of the Democratic Mafia. They DO NOT work for the taxpayers, but for the Union Bosses. Public Unions should be abolished. Unionization of Public Employees is the greatest travesty of this nation.

    • Chester

      Wavesofgrain, perhaps you need to actually investigate those police officers you consider to be “union thugs.” By far and away most of the local, small town officers do NOT belong to a union. They MAY belong to the brotherhood of police and sheriffs, or something like that, but that is NOT a union as far as anything job related is concerned.

      • wavesofgrain

        It appears Tallahassee has UNIONIZED POLICE FORCE. Only 2 officers were placed on administrative leave…paid vacation….while the incident is “investigated”….of course, they are investigated by “their own brotherhood”. There should be a citizens revue to determine wrongdoing…as it is the taxpaying citizens that pay their wages!

        • Chester

          Actually, you can demand a civilian review if you are a resident of Tallahassee. If you are such a citizen, and you aren’t pushing for a civilian review of this case, then you are as much a part of the problem as the officers who acted out.

          • wavesofgrain

            The taxpayers of the United States should NOT have to spend time and money reviewing inept Public Employees. They should just be able to have them Fired for wrongdoing. If these circumstances occured in private industry, they would be terminated tout de suite!

          • $4001792

            That makes no sense — since taxpayers will end up paying one way or another. Either we spend money reviewing what’s going so wrong with our police departments all over America, or we’ll end up paying for the inevitable lawsuits brought against the states that people who have been brutalized by the cops, as this woman was, is sure to file.
            And let’s be clear here — this particular incident will be a million dollar pay out or more, since they permanently disfigured that woman’s face and she’s going to need a whole bunch of surgeries to try to repair what their excessive force did in the breaking of her orbital bone.

          • Chester

            Have you ever tried to find a union shop where you could just fire someone without a full review? Truthfully, you should have a full review of what and why before you fire anyone, just to be sure you are doing the right thing and firing the right person. But as far as us Civilians reviewing public employees before we fire them, the same thing holds true, Either we review, then take the necessary steps, or we accept that public employees are free to do as they please without fear of losing their jobs. If we ARE their employers, then we DO need to review their job performance. Otherwise, all we are is a money well.

        • $4001792

          Stop blaming unions. It’s their superiors who have allowed this culture of brutality and excessive force in the Tallahassee police department to go unchecked, and they’re the ones in the news who are making excuses for what these thugs did to that woman.

          • independent thinker

            The unions are just as guilty if not more so because they foster the “support your fellow officer no matter what” syndrome.

          • $4001792

            The argument that this is all a union problem has no credibility because this kind of brutal and excessive force by the cops is happening all over the country from coast to coast — whether police are members of unions or not. What the real problem is, is that 9/11 gave us the unconstitutional horsesh*t of the Patriot Act and The Department of Homeland security — and they’ve militarized the police and trained them to look at all American citizens as an enemy who must be crushed and subdued by them at all times.

          • independent thinker

            First I did not say it is an “all union problem” I said they share the blame. Second, what the un-patriot act and by extension DHS did is make the abuses more open because they figure they can get away with it.

          • $4001792

            I think it’s an issue that’s a bit ridiculous to bring up because it’s basically beside the point. The fact is, there are many areas in the U.S. that have incredibly high incident rates of police brutality that have non union police forces.
            Cops in general whether they are unionized or not, are not being fired or punished or jailed for using excessive force.

            I think what we’re really seeing is accepted and fully sanctioned police abuse of the populace, because militarization is now systemic all across America. And this being the case, we are sure to see ever increasing incidents of disgusting police brutality and widespread abuses of power and authority.

          • mark

            You’re right, independent thinker, it’s just like that in the U.S. military, too. Support your fellow trooper no matter what – as they deliberately murder thousands of innocent Afghanis and Iraqis. Disgusting! They should all be sent to prison for the rest of our lives just like that punk murderer – Sgt. Robert Bales! And all these white cops, too, who are always gunning down black kids. Send them straight to jail for life – or better yet to the electric chair!

          • Cathy Hovey

            Ok, now I’m not sure if you’re being sarcastic, or stupid like I thought. Where in the world do you see a white cop gunning down a black kid? That kind of thing would absolutely be shown on the mass media networks, along with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson calling for THEIR troops to riot again.

          • mark

            Dear Cathy,

            Click onto this link and you will see 20 very recent and documented examples of unarmed black youths being shot to death by the police. As I said, this gets very little coverage, as it is such a common experience.

            http://www.theroot.com/multimedia/beyond-trayvon-black-and-unarmed

          • Kenny Ray Oxenrider

            You said it….. common because black youth are doing 80% – 90% of the crime…… figures they would be arrested and incarcerated more……

          • mark

            Actually Kenny the examples in the video cited above are of unarmed, non-criminal African Americans who were gunned down by the police and other security forces. Many innocent African American are beaten, abused, and killed by our police forces who have nothing to do with the high crime rates in the ghettos that you allude to.

          • Robert Messmer

            I noticed that by recent you include 1999 and youth for you goes as high as 43 years of age. At least one was killed by black security guards, so yes I can see where this justifies your statement about white cops. The tasered bicyclist was clearly an accident since the cop ran over him, did not shoot him.

      • Kenny Ray Oxenrider

        The belong to the most powerful club. The brotherhood of the badge. Caught in this same situation or speeding they would simply flash their membership card (badge) and their buddies would look the other way or help them get home.

        • Chester

          Funny thing, Kenny. Used to be that a member of that club pretty much had a free pass. Nowadays, he is just as apt to be hauled in as the next guy, and more likely than some. Most places, cops do NOT like DUIs, regardless of the who or what that is behind the wheel.

          • Kenny Ray Oxenrider

            Wish it were true, however I bought a use car from a retired cop with the ‘Retired Cop’ decal on the back window. I never got a ticket anywhere I went but I sure had a lot of cops pull up beside me and shake a naughty finger at me….. hmmmmmm Now tell me it’s not a club.

    • Cashu

      You said a mouthful in that last paragraph, waves. Unions for civil servants allow the bad apples to stay on the force to infect their peers into being bad also. Pretty soon you have institutionalized cover-ups because no union cop wants the reputation of being a rat, and at that point you’ll never be able to make a case against any cop on that force. And police review boards are nothing but a joke when their members come from the profession.

      You can look at some of the classic examples in police history to see how it all works. Try starting with Tammany Hall in New York and you’ll find a lot of branches to pursue from that. Most large urban police forces are completely corrupt. Periodically, an incident will happen that will show just how corrupt they can be. Remember the poor bastard who was screwed with the broom handle recently in a large urban police force? It took a tremendous effort to allow that incident to see the light of day…

      Cashu

      ====================

      • wavesofgrain

        Yes, Cashu, I remember that horrific incident. As I live midst Urban Militant Unions, I witness this day after day. Of course, if you are a union member, you will scoff and insult anyone who tells the public truth. Public Unions should be abolished. We now have government departments for every grievance.

  • wavesofgrain

    After watching this video, I cannot believe these Cops are receiving our taxpayers dollars to bully citizens. They should ALL be fired. BUT, as they are UNION, nothing will happen. I believe there were about 6 cops ganging up on her. Yes, they won’t go into high crime areas, prevent crimes….they only pick and choose what they want to do on the job…bully defenseless women!!!

    • $4001792

      This has nothing to do with their union — instead, this has to do with who is in charge. Their superiors have allowed this kind of police brutality to become the norm and they make excuses for it. It was not their union, but the Tallahassee police department said after watching this video that they “stand by these practices.”

    Don’t forget to sue the officers individually also. And make sure they no longer are able to work in the capacity of police anywhere.

    • Kenny Ray Oxenrider

      We need more video vigilantes to catch these guys in the act and prosecute. Have the guts to park and get your phone out and video stuff like this.

      • Freedomrequiresresponsibility

        While I agree with you, this is taken from a police video. The chief mentioned in his comments that they were making public all video evidence, and kudos to him.

        That is a lot better than what happens in most jurisdictions. We had someone gunned down by three police officers here a couple years ago, the cops immediately went inside and seized all video and within five minutes had ‘lost’ it…..yeah, it was so important that they seized it before security could review it but not important enough to safeguard…….it is called “a cover up” and it is called “MURDER.”

        • BushPilot

          Are you sure it was unedited?

      • mark

        Such a strategy didn’t work out too well with Rodney King, Kenny. The atrocities committed against him by the police were all well videotaped but the all-white jury set all the cops free anyway in the same manner as a nearly all-black jury set murderer OJ Simpson free. You have a lot more faith in our justice system than I do. Juries, particularly majority white juries, tend to declare cops not guilty no matter how expertly they are videotaped committing abuses.

        • BushPilot

          You make no sense. The video is what paid off for him. Without it he would just be a statistic.

          • mark

            Right, but none of the cops who beat him mercilessly went to jail. As you no doubt recall this touched off an horrendous violent riot that led to many senseless deaths and massive property damage.

          • BushPilot

            He won lawsuits due to the video. All the other stuff is collateral damage and can’t be blamed on King or the video. Some people resort to rioting because they feel they have no alternative even though they do.

        • Robert Messmer

          In the King case, DOJ did the civil rights violation thing and I thought they even convicted one or two of the cops involved. And of course with OJ, even though he was found not guilty he would up being sued and losing the case.

          That was a horrible thing about Rodney King. But, as it is being demonstrated more and more often, the race of the juror has nothing to do with not charging cops. Most are so afraid of the Union Thug department retaliation, they are afraid to say “guilty”. In my city, the brotherhood will do anything for their Union buddies, including following jurors (waiting a few months), waiting to catch for DUI’s. They do the same when their comrades are going through divorces…trying to frame the wife. It is disgusting, and citizens are helpless. Police Power MUST be stopped.

      • Robert Messmer

        But the video is not the work of a civilian–it is the police car’s video cam, that can’t be tampered with in the field. I’m sure the only reason this video came out was the fact there were too many eyewitnesses.

  • To Tell The Truth

    These thug cops are probably cops because they couldn’t hold down jobs stacking cans in a supermarket. They should all be imprisoned for a minimum of 30 years and beaten unmercifully at least 12 hours a day . Decertify the criminal union that protects these slimeball scumbags.

  • peter

    Make them pay! There is absolutely no need for this type of brutality, but hey, these cops are human species and that seems to be the way humans behave nowadays. All the president wants to do is kill everybody so the cops take the cue from the “BOSS” or what? Monkey see, monkey do! Idiots!

    • mark

      You’re absolutely right, Peter! Bush started 2 massive wars in 2001-2003 that killed 200,000 Iraqis and 140,000 Afghanis (not to mention 7,000 dead U.S. troops and 40,000 wounded, amputees, paraplegics, and traumatized). That is where they all get this violence from – that war criminal Bush! Many of these very same cops in this video were no doubt Iraqi war veterans 10 years ago. And for that they all get special preference for hiring and extra points on police academy exams because of their “service” killing tens of thousands of innocent human beings who never did a damned thing to any of them or to any of us either. You’re onto something here, Peter, and I salute you! This is all George W. Bush’s fault!

      • Cathy Hovey

        Wow, you’re a special kind of idiot aren’t you? Bush started it all didn’t he? Yeah, he called Osama bin Laden and said, hey, come on over here and kill 3000 people FIRST so that I can be the first president to actually go after all you muslims, since every president before me decided to ignore the fact that you were wanting to fight.

        • mark

          But Saddam Hussein and Iraq (as well and the overwhelming amount of Afghanis who have been killed) had absolutely nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks. The bipartisan Congressional Committee proved that: zero complicity or links between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 attackers. After all Saddam was a Baathist secularist and a ferocious enemy of Osama Bin Laden. Saddam shut down mosques and forbade Iraqi women from wearing the veil. Now sadly since the U.S. “liberation,” Iraqi women must wear the veil or face being stoned to death. Even the Iraqi fighting forces were simply resisting an occupying army as every red-blooded American would do if an Iraqi army for instance invaded and occupied us for no reason, as we did to them.

  • wolf2525

    Yes she was drunk, yes she caused damage, but a beating like this because she didn’t obey fast enough, the Gistopos have a right to injury this women like that. They need to be arrested themselves. These kind of police need to be fired, and charged.

  • wolf2525

    When our protectors become thugs, then America is in big trouble.

    • mark

      You’re right, our protectors are thugs. Like you I prefer to defend drunken women who drive their cars filled with their own children into people’s homes. These are the people who we should stand with to defend their sacred rights!

      • Cashu

        These were NOT protectors. They were and are nothing but thugs. They’re cops because they enjoy inflicting pain on others and what better profession to be in to do that?? The people who select and hire them must be held personally financially accountable for their actions. When that happens the problem will be quickly corrected. As long as local politicians and bureaucrats can hide behind the city corporation and not have to bear any responsibility in the back pocket, this will continue. Recently, I read of a 107 year old Arkansas man who was shot down in cold blood as he was defending his home from a surprise raid by the police there. The poor guy made it for 107 years just to be gunned down by a blue uniformed thug…

We are fortunate,SO FAR, here in Canada, because , I have NEVER heard of nor seen this kind of brutality on Women by Police here. Yes there is brutality BUT it is RARE and only committed on men…SO FAR. !!!!!

    She was obviously under the influence, yet didn’t seem that messed up. Wonder what the road conditions were? A T intersection, a blind corner of sorts, seems odd to run into a house, yet manage to seem relatively sober in her communication skills? The police have been being trained differently for a long time, gone are the “protect and serve” days of andy griffith. Welcome to the coming police state.

    Have them fired, then arrested, indicted, tried, convicted, and jailed for it!

  • Jana

    The cop said as a stupid defense that she kept trying to grab his b*lls the entire time. When? How? He had her hands the entire time. That was a lie!

  • Alan

    They must have gotten such a rush of excitement from manhandling such a petite creature. Too many police officers today could care less about protecting and serving the populace at large. They are imposing Gestapo tactics whenever they can in order to derive the fear from the citizenry which they intend to use to control us. I hope she wins her lawsuit and these thugs are tossed off of the force.

    • Jana

      Where was her husband????

      • Alan

        That’s a good question Jana. Makes me wonder why he refused to come to her aid when she needed him. When my lady has sought my assistance I’ve always been there, no matter the circumstance.

        • thedizzle

          Maybe he didn’t show up because his wife is a drunk tramp out with two illegal immigrants in the middle of the night….?

          • Guest

            Possibly, but there’s always the alternative. It could be that he is just a worthless, disrespectful, cheating, abusive piece of crap who simply doesn’t care about the woman. Who can say without insider knowledge?

          • Alan

            I prefer not to deal in pure conjecture. The alternative could just as well be that he is a worthless, disrespectful, cheating, uncaring piece of crap. Who can say for sure without insider knowledge?

          • Jana

            He was there, he was in their car because the cop went over to talk to him. My husband would have come to my aid too. One thing though, I would not have been driving after drinking. I have never ever done that.
            I am one that does NOT like being out of control, and that would put me out of control. My husband doesn’t either. That just isn’t part of our lifestyle.

          • Jana

            Sorry, she was out with her husband as the cop was talking to her husband at their car. Sounds like you have had some bad experiences with a wife but not all wives are like that!!!
            Also sounds like you don’t listen to the video before offering your opinion which renders your opinion worthless!!!

        • NObama_Holder_Reid_Pelosi_2012

          Wow, a boat load of you apparently are unable to comprehend english or is it that a 14 minute video is to much information to retain the story without getting confused? Half of you are claiming he was at the scene, he wasn’t. The other have are thinking he is some cheating low life.

          I don’t know what kinds of voices you people hear in your heads and I certainly wouldn’t want any of you sitting on a jury panel as you can’t seem to gather the facts from a story being told.

          This is what I heard:
          @1:07 when she was being arrested and saying she can’t believe she is being arrested because her performance was awesome. She then asked the cops “Where is MY HUSBAND” the cop responded with – “He is at the house” – She then asked “Is he comin” – Cop responded “No”

          From that point she speaks about her children which apparently were in the car with her and asking where her children are going the cop said they will go to her husbands house.

          @1:53 She hollers to the kids “Guys go with David” She didn’t say “guys go with your dad” why because Dad was at home while his wife is out hoeing around town drunk with 3 other dudes and her kids in the car no doubt @ 3am – 4 am

          Starting @2:27 the cops says “your fine, the kids are fine we’re going to have them dropped off at your husbands house.

          @3:10 the cop takes some guy named tommy to the car alone off screen and is questioning the guy that was in the car with the woman, it is NOT the husband, because the cops had stated on multiple occasions that her husband is at the house, so how can he be at the scene? the cops then question this David dude who knows nothing and speaks little english. This Tommy and this David state to the cops that they were in the car and the cops have made it clear that the husband is at home.

          @4:38 David states he was in the car but doesn’t know what happened.
          @4:58 the cop tells David hes going to talk to another guy asking David if he is a brother and David says just a friend which is the 3rd guy and 2nd guy that speaks english with a spanish accent.

          @5:50 the investigating cop comes into the video and tells his buddies that “yep all 3 of them identified her as the driver” none of them really know what happened.

          @7:30 approx. she consents to taking a breathalizer test. Shortly after she asks if they have talked to David (her husband)

          @7:40 she asks ” Is David coming” (her husbands name is also David, not the David that was in the car at the scene.) “Is David coming? Have you got in touch with David? The cop asks “who is David?” she responds, “My Husband” – Cops replies – “No we haven’t” @7;50

          @7:51 the cop points at a sergeant and says “That sergeant over there has got in touch with your husband and he is not coming here” She says “Why not” the cops says “I don’t know” She then says “I don’t understand” the cops says “I don’t either” she then goes into a story about her having two kids and her husbands car only has 1 car seat and will need another car seat to legally transport both children.

          Amazing how this trailer park trash is concerned with the safety of her kids being in a car seat yet has children so young that they require a car seat out at 3-4 am and drunk no less yet she is the concerned mother for the safety of her children.

          @Jana – your an idiot – you go spouting off that your sure she was out with her husband when the cops clearly stated multiple times that the husband is at home. Then you go into some personal attack about “thedizzle” having some bad experience with a wife. Then worst of all you have the audacity to chastise someone and lecture them about not listening to the video before offering your opinion “which renders your opinion worthless”.

          These facts and points of the video I have pointed out shows not only how idiotic you are that you cannot comprehend what you hear and see but how truely worthless you are for berating someone when it is clearly you who cannot and do not have listening comprehension apparently beyond the 3rd grade level.

          @Jana – in another post you say “you don’t like to be out of control” you are dead sober and your mind is out of control, you have no idea whats so ever what is going on. Not once but twice you write that the husband was at the scene when the cops clearly distinguish the husband was at home and not coming.

          Because of people like you, its no wonder we have an idiot president like Obama, because you cannot comprehend exactly what your being told or you hear something completely different from what is being said and base your opinion of fantasy voices in your head.

          @Alan – While I can appreciate your thought of conjecture, but the fact that this father is at home at 3-4 am while his wife is the one running the streets @ 3 am with 3 guys not of relation to her and drunk. Who is where they should be as a parent? He is right where he should be, at home waiting for his wife and kids to come home. He is not out bar hopping and chasing woman. His wife on the other hand is and likely when the sergeant called him and gave him the details that she is drunk in an accident with 3 other men in the car at 3 am, gee, I wonder why a husband wouldn’t come for his cheating drunk wife. I suspect that the next morning as soon as the attorney’s office opened up, He was likely filing divorce papers.

          What kind of a wife has his kids out at 3 am drunk driving with his kids and 3 dudes trashing around. Social service catch wind of that and they would be removing the kids from both parents care and putting them into some foster home for the irresponsibility of this woman. Because of her actions, this father could lose his kids to social service.

          • Jana

            In the first place I have never voted for Obama, and if you had proper judgement yourself you would know I am a conservative, NOT a Republican! You however are NOT even a gentleman who can hold a decent conversation. You would watch as a woman is being hurt and call HER trash. Wow that doesn’t speak very highly of you.
            Sounds like you labeled yourself with your own words!
            You do not know the whole story either yet oh how you have embellished it.
            Again I am so sorry that you have had such bad experiences with women. She may be all you have said, but then again she may not.

        • NObama_Holder_Reid_Pelosi_2012

          Alan says – “That’s a good question Jana. Makes me wonder why he refused to come to her aid when she needed him. When my lady has sought my assistance I’ve always been there, no matter the circumstance”

          With all due respect, You state that “When my lady”…. The fact that his wife is out running around with 3 dudes drunk at 3 am instead of being at home with him might be an indication that she is not “his lady” rather she is 3 other dudes lady, so they can go to her aid instead of seeking assistance from her husband in which she has left at home alone while she is out burning up the town.

      • NObama_Holder_Reid_Pelosi_2012

        Her husband was at the house

      I wonder what that %ickweed Steve Wilko’s or something like that who has a show alot like Jerry Springer. Claims he is an ex cop and acts like a shaved nazi skinhead. Thinking he can be “billy badass” all the while knowing he has a boat load of security guards standing off camera to save his arse if someone snaps. He is always talking about how men beat on women of any size. I would like to see if that idiot would lecture his fellow cops about not beating on woman and get up in their face or cover for them.

  • Walt wenger

    These bullies need to be imprisoned for a long time and during that time they can then experience this again — only from the other side. Each and every one of these so-called police officers needs to be charged, tried, and convicted and imprisoned for a long, long, time.

    • Cashu

      Hey Walt… If we apply the same logic to this incident that you want applied to your suffering of injustice in the great state of neuw yawk, we should all have to be subjected to the thugs in blue and have our faces broken.

        In NYC (or the entire state?) they were trying to pass a law that it was a felony to “ANNOY a cop”!!! As “ANNOY” can mean just about anything, that would mean they could get their Billy Club out and use it if someone is whistling out of tune!!!!!!!!!!

        • Cashu

          NOTHING that happens in New York – the city or the state – surprises me. Those people are so institutionally dumbed-down they have absolutely no concept of what real freedom is. The people who call themselves conservatives in that state are much more liberal than people who proudly call themselves liberal in fly over country.

          In my opinion, the four most liberal states in the union are New York, California, New Jersey and Illinois. And every one of them is broke and has their hand out begging… NO, demanding to be bailed out by the other states who DO understand how to manage a fiscal budget and stick to it…

      • Walt wenger

        Ok, then I will accept your twisted logic. Everyone who is stopped by the police in a traffic stop must be attacked by a group of police, deprived of their Constitutional rights, and physically molested to the point of needing hospitalization. Only then will we bother to determine whether the person stopped was actually doing something wrong.
        The next time you are stopped by the police while driving or just to be frisked as in New York City, expect to be beaten by the police and have your face broken. Then you can be happy with your treatment.
        If this is supported by the Courts, then you can enjoy it.
        You are definitely a moron of the first level.

    • NObama_Holder_Reid_Pelosi_2012

      These thugs need to be handed the same treatment as they dish out. Hand cuff them and slam them to the asphalt then taze them while and after their hands are cuffed. As a bonus, if they happen to be caught out with their family then handcuff their spouse and do the same while making them watch what it looks like from a different perspective. See how these a$$holes like it when they have to watch their loved ones abused and they cannot defend them self or their loved ones from the abuse and assault. Poetic justice. – unfortunately, there will be good cops that get caught up in the war their brothers in blue have created with the public.

      What goes around, comes around. the more that people see what scum cops are, the more force that is building, eventually there will be a landslide and the hammer gonna drop on these type of cops who think they are above the law.

    Blatant police brutality aside, what is she doing riding around drunk at 3am with two illegal immigrant men in her car? I think we know why her husband didn’t come to the scene….

  • IBCAMN

    did you hear that?the cop say’s-“i’m just going to state she refused to blow”.now i heard her comply with the breath-a-lizer request from the cop!all this crap went down and they never got to it!so the cops lied?!just to add another charge to her!this is bullsh*t at it’s finest.
    if you listen to the senior officer tell the jr officer that when he needs to ask her to take the test,he states right away to the jr officer,”she probably won’t submitt to the test”,rite off the bat that cop ASSUMES she won’t comply!so isn’t that cop putting everyone in the confrontational mood right away??and he even says she slips out of the regular cuffs,so why get ruff if it’s unnintentional?she was still in cuffs when she gets out!(and why the hell did the cops pull her out of the car?you can blow the test sitting down!)she didn’t grab his junk till after the two beat her up!the cop was kneeing her in the upper thigh and made her sh*t her self!what’s that tell ya?!
    all these corrupt thugs are tought to escalate everything to an arrestible offense.you hear how proud that cop was to tell her she now was being charged with a felony??it’s simple,if the cops were doing what they are suppose to do,they would understand drunk people and let them speak,ask their questions and such then answer politely and then proceed with test…but no,they were already in the mindset of a felony stop(forementioned)most of this could have been avoided but intentionally was not,by the police!
    yes she’s drunk,i know it,you know it,hell,she knew it!she was being a drunk mother concerned about her family(afterwards of course)what you expect from an old drunk cheerleader??!
    iv’e been through enough of encounters with these badge wielding [expletive deleted] to see right through them and see them for the cowards they are!this chick was of no threat to them if they would have done this all the right way!just watch it and put your earphones on,listen to the cops and her carefully.and put yourself in her shoes and watch it a few times,then make your opinion known.
