Trooper cleared after stomping on innocent man’s skull while handcuffed

"If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever."
- George Orwell


EXTON, PA — Police followed an innocent man into his home, believing that he was a fleeing suspect. When the man protested being handcuffed on his own floor with strangers searched his home, an officer cussed at him and stomped on his head, causing multiple facial fractures and shattered teeth. The scene was so gruesome that a cop testified against a fellow cop. Yet instead of being fired, that stomping officer was later promoted, and now has been officially cleared of violating the victim’s civil rights.

The incident dates back to August 19th, 2009, when a multi-agency drug task force performed a raid on a home on East Swedesford Road in Exton, Pennsylvania. Officers from the West Whiteland Police Department joined forces with the Pennsylvania State Police “Clandestine Drug Lab Team.” The group dressed in black masks and carried long guns into the targeted residence about 9:30 p.m. to stop the inhabitants from getting high.

Things did not go smoothly for the cops, as two of the suspects were able to escape through the back door. Officers resorted to combing the neighborhood for individuals matching the suspects’ description. A few blocks a way, officers came upon a young male wearing shorts and no shirt, entering a residence on nearby Heather Lane.

That man was actually 20-year-old Zachary W. Bare, who had just returned home from swimming in Brandywine Creek. The residence he entered was his own home, where he lived with his disabled mother.

Officers suspected Mr. Bare of being involved with a plot to get high without government permission. They entered his home without permission and confronted him in his kitchen. Bare was ordered him to the floor and cuffed, so that officers could then perform a warrantless search on his house.

A Boot to the Skull

Mr. Bare was compliant but understandably upset, as armed paramilitary men had accosted him and invaded his domicile. Another officer entered the home and approached Bare wearing a mask and carrying a shotgun.

That officer was a veteran drug enforcer, later identified as Pennsylvania State Trooper Kelly Cruz. Cruz had been imprisoning people for getting high as long as Zachary Bare had been alive. The trooper, who lives in Oxford, is a “prolific and productive narcotics agent,” according to his own attorney, with multiple tours of combat experience in the Middle East.

Mr. Bare remained prone on his kitchen floor, face-down and handcuffed. When he had the audacity to talk back to Trooper Cruz in his own home, the veteran officer told him to “shut the f*** up.” Cruz then raised his jackboot above Bare’s head and stomped on his skull.

After being essentially curb-stomped, Bare’s head had been fractured in 2 places; his nose was broken; his upper teeth were driven upward into his gums and jaw. He spit a mess of blood and teeth onto the floor.

Bare was determined to have not been involved with the supposed “meth lab” a few streets away and was never charged with any crime.

If the courts will not uphold justice...

...then it is up to individuals to see that justice is carried out.

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

All this thug had to say for himself was, "I was afraid..."

And so it was granted this perpetrator-in-uniform, then the ends, (his fear of not going home to his own family), justified the means, (by raising his boot and stomping on the back of his head, crushing his face into the floor).

Of course, he added to his testimony that he hadn't notice that the innocent victim was hand-cuffed as well as face down on the ground, when this so-called trooper, Kelly Cruz, felt this overwhelming fear and simply reacted as he was trained to, eh? I'm sure the family he went home to, are treated as humanly.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

In a town not too far from

In a town not too far from here an officer kicked a suspect after he was already subdued. That officer was fired, charged, convicted and sent to prison. I think he got a few years in prison as punishment.


This one is worth a phone call.

Tell Pennsylvania State Police to fire Trooper Kelly Cruz!

Citizen's Grand Juries are needed now!!

The public sector cannot be relied on to police itself or to punish wrongdoers like this fascist cop. We must re-institute the citizen's grand jury in every county and begin taking back our governments across the country. All abuses or violations by cops should be reviewed by a grand jury and indictments issued where needed to do justice for the victims.

It is our country and if we lose it we have no one top blame but ourselves.

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.
