Cops being Cops

Cop vs. Cop

This first video is of cops being themselves.  What is the difference between cops and bullies? I do not think there is a difference, do you?

Security Camera Footage Shows Horrednous Unprovoked Attack on Man

Police arrested Kyle Howell after an April 25 traffic stop in Westbury and charged him with crimes including assaulting the officers, tampering with physical evidence and resisting arrest, court records show.

However, these officers apparently did not know that they were being filmed by security cameras at a nearby store.

Prosecutors have since launched an investigation after the footage has surfaced that contradicts the charges made by the two officers.

The two officers claimed that Howell was trying to chew and swallow marijuana and that he initiated violence against them.

“I remember getting a knee to my face and after that, I don’t really remember much. I was hit in the head so many times,” Howell told CBS New York. “They were telling me to spit something out of my mouth.”

He said that he was only chewing gum and had no drugs.

Howell said he didn’t put up a fight but suffered a broken nose, bone fractures near both eyes and facial nerve damage.

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead
