Denver police are above the law.  If you don't believe it, just ask one of them.

Remember kids, when seconds count, 911 is only minutes away.

My Gawd, that is one ugly-ass website!

Looking at that pic there's no way reading that article is a good idea. I'm gonna go watch Fight Club.

Why don't you stop hitting yourself?

He had Marijuana, he got uppity and they beat.his.ass.
You think they'd have done that to a white kid?

Actually if you read the article you'll see that one of them did do it to a white kid later on.... and he was fired for it. But beat the living snot out of a brown kid and apparently Denver PD thinks that's just spiffy.

Unbelievable. Well, except for it being totally believable because this kind of shiat happens on a pretty regular basis.

well there's you're problem!  he's black and talking to the cops.  you just can't do that sort of thing.

Why yes, I'm sure there are no other missing details in this story.

Get used to it people. This is what happens when you militarize your police forces. I bet all three of those cops are ex military. Years of brainwashing them into believing everyone and everything is a threat, coupled with hyper-agressive responses to percieved threats results in this kind of shiat happening. Like Rambo said, "you cant just turn it off."

Actually, they didn't find any pot on him. They found it on his passenger. The beating
started when they wanted to search his car and he asked if they had a warrant.

Especially if you know your rights.  That means you're uppity.  No wonder the cops beat him to a pulp.  Standard operating procedure.

That's Tiffany Middleton on the left with Chevy Chase during the 2008 DNC. I posted this in the last thread on this subject. I'm not even a bit surprised at this decision and the DPD actions.

I love how cops, just like any other gang, start indoctrinating young. Look at the little bacon bit in the back--is he 15?

They need to make prosecution a legal certification that has to be renewed every few years, and then make bar applicants register for a legal draft as to who will prosecute what cases.

The chummy, "We don't need to prosecute him cause we might have to work for him," shiat that has infected the DAs office almost universally needs to be dissolved if we're going to stay free.

that guy sure likes to fall down a lot.  you'd think he'd be better at it.
 
2013-03-07 09:19:46 AM
Yeah that's one of their cadets. They get a small paycheck and free tuition at Metro Community College in trade for being a DPD flunky. Then at 21, they get preferential selection to enter the DPD academy.

In the cops defense, do you think that guy's gonna make the mistake of questioning a cop in the future? Hells no!

Gots to nip that in the bud! Next, they'll wanna sit in the front of the bus. And don't even get me started on using the water fountain.

Probably not. My experience has been ex-military are more disciplined, and don't tend to do as much stupid stuff.

I was told by an Army buddy that I served with that some police dept's dont like hiring vets or former MPs because they cant de-program them very well. Cops are supposed to protect and serve, military not so much. I dont know if there was any truth to his statement. But it seemed to make some sense. But as always there is an asshole in every crowd, FARK is full of em!

Why do the bulk of these comments have racist overtones?

enik: Why yes, I'm sure there are no other missing details in this story.


Maybe, but probably not enough to make a difference. The City of Denver payed this guy $795,000 in damages, so I'm guessing most of what we're reading here is pretty much what happened.
Bad cops being bad. And repeat offenders at that.

What do you expect from the P.D. that wears t-shirts that read "We 'beat' the crowd!".
There was a pic here some time ago. Surprised no one has posted it yet.

Onkel Buck: Remember gun grabbers when you are done with your latest crusade, these are the only assholes who will still be allowed to have guns. Be careful what you wish for


But at least they won`t be able to use the excuse "We thought he was going for his gun" anymore.

We don`t have this problem here in the UK, where your `horror` scenario is happening i.e. cops have guns and the public don`t. Do you know what effect that has? The police don`t go crazy if they think you may have a weapon and beat the shiat out of you `just in case` and they can`t use that as an excuse so less police are violent. People don`t pull guns on cashiers `just because` etc etc etc

It`s strange but in countries where guns are restricted for the public NONE of the outcomes predicted by gun nuts happen.

You know, it`s almost as though they lie to keep their guns...

enik: Why yes, I'm sure there are no other missing details in this story.


That was my thought as well . . . I was surprised when the facts from the blog pretty much matched the national news article:

http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_22553719/denver-police-off ic ers-wont-be-charged-2009-beating

Alexander Landau, 23, said representatives from the department and the FBI called him at about 6:30 p.m. to inform him of the decision.
"They said they didn't feel like they had enough evidence to bring federal charges against any of the officers who were initially involved," Landau said.
 ...
The officers involved are now vindicated, said Nick Rogers, president of the Denver Police Protective Association.
"It's pretty simple: The officers did nothing wrong," he said.
In a separate case, Murr was fired for lying on a police report about an April 2009 incident in Lower Downtown that was caught on videotape, showing officers beating Michael DeHerrera. Nixon was fired in 2011 for lying in a police report about a violent 2009 incident caught on video outside the Denver Diner. He has since been reinstated.
A Police Department roster shows that Middleton also remains on the job.

I would guess it might be the racist overtones in the `3 white cops beat up a black guy` part of TFA but, you know, that might just be me.

enik: Why yes, I'm sure there are no other missing details in this story.


I'm sure there are missing details in this story, but the cops managed to get them buried.

/oh, wait... were you trying to defend the cops here?
 
2013-03-07 09:42:31 AM
Isolated incident.
 
2013-03-07 09:43:11 AM

enik: Why yes, I'm sure there are no other missing details in this story.


Please let us know what details could have been missed that would allow the police to beat someone as badly as they beat this guy.

As a kid I was taught to respect the police- they were as important as teachers and doctors and lawyers.
Now I see many police departments as a haven for mental defectives.
Most likely the only thing to have changed is my perception.
