Chief Dorn and Duncan clown,
When the facts of this case come to light; I hope there will be some quality training and dismissals. First, there was no robbery. Second, there was no punching of the neighbor. Third: He was complying with the first officer when...Fourth: he was tased from behind. Fifth: He was asking the neighbor to call the police for HELP who he knew for 10years.Sixth: The first officer had a flashlight on him when he exited the fountain(good opportunity to see hands). Seventh: Struggle is going to happen when you're under the effects of being tased in soaking wet clothes and officers are pulling on an arm or two. Eight: A non board certified medical examiner with no experience makes a cause of death of excited delirium with no experience(to boot)!?Nine: He was dead on the scene due to heart failure(most likely from repeated tasings while wet). Emergency room revived a brain dead child who survived on life support for 11 hrs. Ten: the cover-up started from the get-go with a cooked up search warrant in effort to find something more incriminating. Eleven: Police brutality was at it's maximum and obviouisly the cause of death by three overzealous cops who heard he 'punched' a woman.Twelve: 3 cops can't cuff a 165lb teenager?? Really! No pepper spray, no rubber bullets, no batons, no wrestling to the ground. Thirteen: Police report tape recorder 'corrupts' while interviewing the 'point blank' witnesses. Fourteen: No money was ever demanded, the family filed a 'notice of claim'. Fifteen: no attempt by the officers to revive the victim. Sixteen: Worse than Rodney King case because he lived and there were cameras. Seventeen: Facts will be public when the case goes to trial. Eighteen: This was blatant 2nd degree manslaughter by a group who is to "protect and serve". Who was protected? Who was served? Nineteen: People on the scene when the brutality was over, "saw no excessive force"!!. Brilliant!!Dec 6, 2011
