A Maryland mother is distraught after her 26-year-old son died last month following his encounter with three off-duty sheriff’s deputies in a movie theater.

Robert Ethan Saylor’s death was ruled a homicide yesterday by the Baltimore County Medical Examiner’s office, declaring he died from asphyxia (suffocation) while in police custody.

OMG - they actually have a medical term for when cops murder

From this article:
where the ME rules the death a homicide.

"Dr. George Kirkham is a criminologist and former law enforcement officer who teaches at the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida State University. He said the circumstances surrounding Saylor's death suggest a possible case of positional asphyxia, which he said often goes hand in hand with a phenomenon called sudden in-custody death syndrome."


SOOO that's what they call murder by cops these days.

Was on her way to detox, got laid over and got lit. They wrestled her to the ground, then put a knee in the middle of her back. That forces all the air out of your lungs, and keeps you from inhaling again. ANY animal will struggle when their air supply is cut off.
They killed her.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Hmmm, maybe caused by "accidental" pepper spray overdose

Capsicum spray has also been named as a possible influence in the SICDS victim, without being the sole agent of the death. In 1991, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACF) issued an executive brief, 'Responding to the need for a less than lethal alternative, police departments throughout the country have adopted Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) or pepper spray as a force option. When deaths began to occur after the use of OC spray, a task force was formed to provide data regarding the use of OC by police, and its influence in the death of persons in the excitable manic state. The IACF studied 30 cases over the period of 1990 to 1993 (Fig 2).

That was painful to read

I love the part where they actually ponder WHY after being sprayed with OC - the person becomes combative. WELL- some of us have not had all our primal instincts ripped from us yet - some of us - upon feeling horrible pain and burning go the to the fight or flight part of the brain.

And for the case in hand - it seems medication is the largest contributing factor to SICDS - so seems these officers should have been astute enough to recognize a down syndrome person and know that this person is most likely on a medication - hence requiring a different tactic to subdue him(of course, I still vote for just giving him a ticket - but hey - that's just me - speaking of which- we need to point out this was a Regal cinema and give them some good ole DP love by boycotting their sorry asses).

My Backyard:

Been talking about this with a friend quite a bit today.
He goes to that theatre often. I hope Sheriff Jenkins sees to it that things are done properly and these men pay.

Are people in your town

picketing? Organizing anything?

Not yet:

But it appears that many are paying attention. The Sheriff wrote a letter asking people to allow time for the full investigations and it can be found in PDF. at the county sheriff's facebook page.


I have a feeling that the dung will hit the rotory oscilator if they are not satisfied with the results.
But this is MD. one of the saddest places to live.
The whole thing is Dem controlled and people can't see past their welfare check.

They should remind the Sheriff

that when anyone else is involved in these incidents and the ME says it is homicide - thats about the time those individuals are arrested.

Seems to me it has been 4 days since the ME called it a homicide - well - lets get to the arresting part.


Now he knows.

On another note - maybe that target company

should add the mentally challenged to their list of targets.

Wow- you must be very proud of yourselves officers

It takes a real man to beat up on those down syndrome kids. After all they do have "retard strength" and there were only THREE of you.

I hope your parents are proud too - cause I know I teach my kids every night to pick on the weak and unfortunate in society.

Another fine example of our first responders living up to the over inflated hero status they have been given since 9/11.

Seems if ONE of them was a real man he would have just pulled a ten spot out and told the theater to go fuck themselves.
