Gestapo Cops Beat Man To Death @ DUI Checkpoint
to living in an old country area.
About 30 years ago, there was new sheriff in town, who decided that beating people with Maglites would be a good thing for his deputies to do, to ensure compliance.
After a little bit of this, the Sheriff found himself out in his cruiser one day on a call, and when he got out of the car, a number of civilians beat the living shit out of him and he ended up in the hospital for 3 weeks.
No more Maglite beatings occurred after that.
this guy got beaten to death. It is even more shameful that there were "higher ups" present during his death sentence. The guy defending the actions of the PD, is just as guilty.
Had this guy lived, he might have made a great activist and spokesperson regarding police brutality.
I know that is how I got started.
I was pulled over about 12 years ago for a minor traffic infraction. I wasn't speeding or anything.
When receiving the ticket, I politely told the officer, who was actually a "commander" that "I thought my tax dollars could have been better spent by him actually going after criminals instead of me for a minor traffic infraction". I said this calmly, and respectfully. I never raised my voice.
I was a little upset that the kid who mows my lawn got all of his equipment stolen in broad daylight earlier that day, and that burglaries were up in my neighborhood.
He said that there were several more things he could "write me up for", meaning he could just make a bunch of crap up, as he went along.
I said "fine...whatever"
He proceeded to open my door and scream "get out" to which I hesitated. He then assaulted me trying to pull me out of the vehicle, which he was unsuccessful. Another cop came and tried to help him pull me out of the vehicle, unsuccessfully.
As they were doing this, I yelled out to some people who were filling up their vehicles at the gas pumps, and the cops backed off realizing they had witnesses.
I eventually got out, and he then started rummaging through my vehicle trying to find anything he could incriminate me with. I told him he had no consent to do that, and he told me to basically "shut up, that he could do whatever he wanted." I was pissed at this point and told him "I was going to drive a schoolbus full of Jewish lawyers up his ass"
After not finding anything, he wrote me a bogus ticket for crossing some line that designates the exit, which was a complete fabrication.
We filed a report with internal affairs, and went and made sworn statements.
A few days later, I was visiting a friend out in the country. He got a knock on his front door, and it was his neighbor. It turned out that his neighbor and his girlfriend were both filling up their trucks at the gas station where this all happened. He told me that they saw everything, and were happy to go and give a statement to the cops. They subsequently did.
A couple of weeks later, we received a letter in the mail stating that the cops were well within their duties with what they did, and basically have a nice day.
So after 3 witnesses besides myself went and gave sworn testimony, nothing happened.
I became an activist at that point.
This guy later tried to run for Sheriff. Little did he know that his assault would come back to haunt him.
Mike Hanson (AJ's cameraman and producer at the time) chased him down when he was canvassing neighborhoods, and confronted him with a camera.
It is one of the most classic pieces of video out there. It is on vhs, so I can't share it, but you should have seen the look on this guy's face when Hanson had him cornered with a video camera. He scrambled to his car like he was on fire.
Mike proceeded to play that video on public access tv, and I believe it had an impact on whether this guy got elected. Thankfully he did not make it to Sheriff, as he was a steroid ridden goon.
I will always love and respect Mike Hanson for his bravery. He was one of the originals here in Austin. He was with AJ when they broke into Bohemian Grove.
Here is his website.

Lots of classics there.

Man dies after one joint...
Unfortunately, this law suit will go nowhere. You can not file a civil rights law suit on behalf of a dead person and the system will protect the cops at all costs. The victims will be further victimized.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
nobody saw anything.....what a scam!! Police are only an extension of the corruption is every aspect of Government, i like what Jesse Ventura said "i love my country, I cant stand the government" or something like that...
when I passed one riding in a friends car. My friend was in disbelief that anyone one could possibly be against busting drunk drivers. I said that wasn't the case and not what I was upset about. I then said there's worse things than drunk drivers. He appeared almost angry at that comment as if there's nothing worse than a drunk driver that can kill whole families. How could I say such a thing? I admit there isn't much worse, but there is. We didn't say much after that.
He was still in disbelief when we departed. I saw him a few weeks later, he looked a little shaken. He said he saw a few videos and read some things. Now he completely understands what I was getting at.
What right do they have to stop everybody without warrant or suspicion and look for any excuse to fine, arrest, harass, impound their car, or further violate their rights? Or end up killing someone over trivial matters as seen here. It is a clear violation of the constitution and their oath to uphold it. It doesn't matter how noble or not the intentions are, it is illegal.
If you sign a contract with the state that says you agree to their DUI rules, then it is legal.
Have you signed such a contract?
You do not get to demand they sign something, and never TELL them it is a contract.
Just because they do something does not make it right or lawful.
When you signed up for your driver license, had the state sent you a letter demanding you do so under threat of jail?
When you were 16, did you voluntarily and gleefully go to the state offices and sign the contract of your own free will?
If you sign a contract with the state that says you agree to let them kill you, then it is legal?

If you have free will, you won't sign such contracts.
You do realize that the state has outlawed private versions of the same contract right? Government: Forcing People to do what they say not what they do for millenia.
Nothing the state does would ever be considered a valid contract in the private sector. Any proof or threat of coercion would nullify that contract. Hence, nothing the state does is 'contractual.'
Flush out your headgear on this. We don't have anything close to voluntary government.

Would like to see some court cases that support your theory that "nothing the state does is 'contractual.'"
Is anyone winning in court with this argument?
