Thank you for this

I watched helplessly as something similar happened in Ely Maximum Security Prison in Ely Nevada. A guard said "It's time to teach a lesson" and picked one of us out of the line (Seemingly at random) and smashed his face into the wall. At least 6 guards beat him with nightsticks, breaking his cheekbone and jaw. One of the guards then slammed his face into the wall and said "Anyone asks, you fell down the stairs". And at least 12-15 guards were laughing.
He was then placed on a bus in handcuffs and driven over 7 hours from Ely prison to Las Vegas Nevada without medical attention. I never learned his name, nor any of the guards responsible.
Thank you for bringing this into the light. In the 21 months I was incarcerated I saw atrocities that were bad enough, but then when I talk about...to hear "Well criminals deserve it"...has done more emotional damage to me than the experiences themselves.
Thank you

Delete this Post - IMMEDIATELY

Dear Americans, we are gathered here to promote and celebrate Dr. Ron Paul; so let us not waste our efforts sponsoring anything but him candidacy for President.

Civil abuse is repugnant, agreed. However, none of the many injustices we face today will be solved with the viewing of a YouTube video.

Instead, discuss how Dr. Paul's message has effected you; how have you contributed to his efforts; provide videos you have recorded and/or produced; or simply tell America why he should be elected. But this mockery of post is redundant and obtrusive.

Please delete it, it has no place here.

A message from a fell Dr. Paul supporter.

No more torture-foreign OR domestic!

We MUST make our voices heard.

No more torture foreign or domestic. Make your voice heard!!!!

As for "dont hurt RP's campaign" by working on other things....it is by showing our support of civil rights that we can truly show support for Dr. Paul and his messege.

Are you KIDDING?!

I would imagine that all freedom loving, Ron Paul supporting Americans have the moral decency to allow a certain amount of lateral conversation here.... Take it easy... I've seen alot worse forum topics and cringe at some of the stupid things "members" respond to...

This IS America.

This is what we have become, an environment where this can and will occur. It is not by accident, the office of Homeland Security and the FBI Joint Terroristm Task Force (JTTF) have been opening offices all over America over the past 7 years to work with and advise local law enforcement. This is the result.

This is not just a case of "bad apples", nor were the abuses at Abu Graib in Iraq attributable to the bottom rung soldiers. Hey, the US officially condones torture!?!?

Frankly, I'm not surprised that the US has finally become a psudo-Nazi country ... after all, our CIA was stocked-up with ex-Nazis from the start. (Think I'm making this up?)

Frankly, I'm sick of being lied to, and I wish people would frikken wake up.

Authority

It is all about authority. Thank God the other guy standing there knows how to respect authority and didn't push it or say a word or make a move. He would not be with us now if he had. People with power often cannot handle it. Apparently we have some people with power who are not handling it well now that we are going to have to rise up against.

what are the names of those

what are the names of those people ?
have they been prosecuted yet ?

Looks like Nazi Germany to me!!!

...and Americans are being

...and Americans are being taxed a third of their income to pay for this all over the world.

we MUST do something

The punishment ranged from 4 months to

two life terms in prison.

It is all

On the end of the video.

No

Looks like Nazi Germany. Shouldn't happen in America.

People need to put together citizen council groups in their cities and counties, to pressure mayors and county officials to fire the heads of departments engaging in that type of crap.

If we the people don't become active in government this is the crap that happens, and its our fault because of our own apathy. Don't expect the goverment to fix itself. Only "we the people" can fix it by getting involved.

you need a good understanding of the constitution and philosophy of the founding fathers to be your guide.

Attention works

Here in Reno our police used to be gestapo-esque until the TV show Reno911 made our police look like the complete jackasses and good-ol-boys they were...and you know what? It worked. I've had only a few interactions with them the past few years, but all have been pleasant. They revamped their image and now they seem to understand that they are to be protectors and not oppressors of the people they are sworn to serve. I think this is hands down the biggest issue of our time.

I saw a..................

crackhead not following police instructions and paid the ultimate price for it. Remember people there are a lot of police out there that are very sadistic and also police view us as different from them for the most part, kind of an us/vs them mentality. And they can make you "disappear".

This is the reason

People use to justify killing Cops. And sometimes its one of the good cops that's killed.

That's why Police Cheifs And Sheriffs should fire bad Cops.

Blowback doesn't just happen with CIA operations.

those are not police they

those are not police they are correctional officers
they should be prosecuted for this crime
that man was no threat he was hogtied for christ sake

this doesn't belong on this forum

I believe this DOES belong on this forum

Because this is the thing we are fightiing against. It is pure evil and it goes right up from our local law enforcement to the upper levels of government. If we do not stand up and say this is wrong, then who will?

NCMarc's picture

agreed

the guy was probably strung out on drugs. i couldn't hear it either but he gave them a reason for it. No, he shouldn't die but he should do what he is told when he's arrested.

Being hogtied and beaten to

Being hogtied and beaten to death is an ok punishment for bad mouthing your captors? I think you meant to post at www.johnmccain.com

That was the first thing the police chief said

Blood tests showed NO drugs. Even if that would have excused his brutal murder.
So to NCMarc, if this man had any drug in his system that would give police a right to torture him to death?

how do we know that?

Maybe his attitude/past conditioning from previous experience of police underhandedness. He didn't deserve death.
