Did Michelle Cusseaux have to die?

http://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/editorial/2014/08/18/michelle-cusseaux-mental-illness/14266383/


Normal law-abiding humans do not behave in this manner; criminals and psychopaths do. Anglo values and law look at police behavior and use of excessive force as necessary to protect the officers. In the above video, was it necessary?

 

An unarmed, single victim against multiple trained, heavily armed officers,  swinging batons, kicking your face, stomach, and groin without mercy, seemingly relentlessly: How would an autistic or schizophrenic person respond?

 

 

In the video, cops appear to be villains, bullies, and the mob – just organized minions of criminal units.

 

 

This is an  epidemic. Police violence should be declared a public health and medical Emergency. Mental illness affects about one in every four Americans. The medical community cannot afford to ignore this situation. We must pay now or pay immensely later.

 

 

If we ignore, what will the future look like as more police officers are rewarded for violence and move up the ranks, as they have already?   Will a lack of diversity be the future?

 


 

Many homeless people have mental disorders that landed them on the streets. Mental disorders are controllable and treatable but not in prison. No studies have documented the treatment benefits of prison for mental disorders as well as developmental disorders and homelessness.  We know that untreated mental illness often gets worse with addiction.  Are medical societies and patient advocates comfortable with law enforcement-driven treatment protocols for  mental illness and addiction?

 

The most disturbing thing about the video above and other videos like it is the lack of first responders.  Ambulance delays,  lack of CPR and advanced life support increase fatalities.  Why were there no ambulances  and at least 5 cruisers?  Are cops trained in CPR?  I believe they are, and the majority carry defibrillators.  However, no attempts were made to resuscitate or administer first aid.

 

Videos of police violence with often fatal injuries to “suspects,” and  absence of ambulances , and  use  of defibrillators,  ensure that patients  will not be brought back to life.  A dead patient cannot contradict blood the  stained lies of law enforcement.

 

 

Why were so many cruisers on the scene, but no ambulance?  Was there a delay?  If so, why?  Perhaps delays in medical treatment result in the death of victims of police  violence.  Or did  medicine outsource health care to law enforcement?

Petition: Prosecute Darren Wilson for the shooting and killing of Mike Brown

 

Prosecute Darren Wilson for the shooting and killing of Mike Brown

https://www.change.org/p/chris-koster-prosecute-darren-wilson-for-the-shooting-and-killing-of-mike-brown

 

On Saturday 8/9/14, 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., a suburb of St. Louis.

The shooting occurred around noon Saturday at the Canfield Green Apartment complex. Michael Brown was unarmed when he was shot six times and killed. Brown presented no threat to the officer’s or any other life, and use of deadly force was not immediately necessary to effect the suspects arrest. The officer not only took the life of a presumably innocent man, he endangered the lives of others by discharging his weapon multiple times in a highly populated area. We feel this shooting was unlawful under RSMO Chapter 563 Section 563.046

Darren Wilson stopped Michael Brown because he was jaywalking, not because Wilson believed him to be a robbery suspect. All we know about what happened next is that 18 year-old Michael Brown, who was completely unarmed, was shot and killed.

Wilson is under the protection of the Ferguson Police Department, which has chosen from the beginning of this case to opt for obscurity rather than transparency. The department did not reveal Wilson’s identity for nearly a week after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

Please join us in calling on Robert P. McCulloch, St.Louis County Prosecuting Attorney, Missouri Govenor Jay Nixon, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster to investigate the murder of Mike Brown and prosecute Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting and killing of Mike Brown.

Please uphold justice.

Police Violence: Use of Tasers For Walking


“A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the family, including the 7 month old son, of 24 year old Gregory Towns, who died after being tased 13 times in 29 minutes. Two officers repeatedly shocked this man’s body for a total of 47 seconds… while unarmed and handcuffed.”


“Police found Towns sitting down and out of breath after a short foot chase. He asked officers at least ten times to be allowed to rest before going with them, according to AJC. The cops then decided to use their weapons as a cattle prod to force the weak man to walk, instead of just letting him catch his breath.”


“While we often ask “why didn’t that cop use a taser instead of his gun?”, it is important to remember that while a person is less likely to die from a taser shock than a gun shot, they are still a weapon, and still often unnecessary and lethal.”

Using tasers to hasten the arrest process for injured citizens who have difficulty breathing has no place in American medicine. I doubt the manufacturer of tasers would make such recommendations to any law enforcement official. There are no medical indications for tasers.

Someone who is having difficulty breathing needs an ambulance. Any fool knows that.

This is wrongful death due to the off-label use of tasers. The police did not act in accordance with standard practice or protocols for tasers.

Personnel should consider that exposure to the ECW [Taser]  for longer than 15 seconds (whether due to multiple applications or continuous cycling) may increase the risk of death or serious injury.”  (3)  

Police are not allowed to make medical decisions, yet they are (with uniformly poor outcomes) increasing fatalities and disability cases.

Systemic violence within law enforcement serves to compound the burgeoning unlawful, unethical, and inhumane actions that lead to physical and mental disorders. When a disorder is exploited by law enforcement for profit or abuse, it can only be described as an act of terrorism.

A public health emergency exists for people with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and Asperger syndrome. People with mental and developmental disorders may not understand commands screamed at them by an irate officer pointing a gun, and the wrong reaction could be fatal.

The medical community cannot stand by and watch patients slaughtered, knowing that they are at very high risk for police violence and its associated morbidity and mortality.

Gregory Town tasered to death

Food For Thought: How do we protect those with distinct voices?

How will we protect the frontlines of freedom from retaliation?


How do we protect those with distinct voices? That is a question worthy of careful thought. Police are powerful branches of government and retaliation can come in different forms , when it is least expected  and can be fatal.  How do we protect those on the frontline?

 

 

Let’s figure out:

1.  Ways to help avert retaliation —TRAINING & EDUCATION

2.  Offer  technical assistance—LEGAL SERVICES

3.  Offer monetary assistance to families for legal defense —CROWDSOURCING

 

Valuing the  inalienable rights of ALL people, means helping those fight  when necessary.  Need varies with context so finding ways to communicate and identify safety needs.   How do we help spread the fight and increase support for Individual Rights?  

 

Too many “Recognized”  well-funded organizations for human rights do not do their jobs well.   Many lost opportunities  because of  pre-occupation with busy.   

 

Ramsey Orta and Calvin Bryant, I believe are still imprisoned.   Are they still imprisoned? How are they? They  and the protestors in #Ferguson are  soldiers  of  the infantry of freedom, fighting on the frontlines.  

 

So, how do we protect the distinct voices of freedom from American tyranny?

 

Create an infrastructure of protection capable of  tracking  data and detecting corruption….. Let us brainstorm….

#OpFerguson

Good people of Ferguson. Anonymous has seen your distress and has called on it’s rowdy legions for support. For those of
you unfamiliar with how Anonymous works, just be aware that drama, confusion, widely variant opinions, hilarity, trickery, arrests, brilliant success and equally epic fails are part of the package.

FIRST, PLEASE NOTE: There appears to be a fake website set up to gather your information -called a “honeypot”- to identify the information (location and more) of those who browse there: http://www.opferguson.com <– DO NOT GO HERE.

SECONDLY, you may notice contradictory tweets and information about #Ferguson and #OpFerguson from various Anonymous twitter accounts.
Part of why there is dissension about this particular #op is that CommanderX is considered a “namefag/facefag” -a known entity who enjoys or at least doesn’t shun publicity- which is considered by most Anonymous to be bad form, for some probably fairly obvious reasons. The other big reason is that anything involving cops on one hand and new people unfamiliar with offensive tech on the other, spells “arrests” which we refer to as “v&” or “getting vanned” i.e. surveillance/arrests.

#OpFerguson info:

*** The actual Anonymous #OpFerguson appears to be using the twitter account @OpFerguson. The website is http://www.opferguson.cf NOT .com!! The .com one is the honeypot.

*** The IRC webchat link for #opFerguson is https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.cyberguerrilla.org/?nick=Anonymous|?#OpFerguson – this is a well-established Anonymous IRC that is friendly and helpful to newcomers. The IRC admins are very happy to help with anything, just ask.

REMEMBER

1. IF YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING ILLEGAL ONLINE YOU WILL VERY LIKELY NOT BE ARRESTED FOR VISITING A WEBSITE OR AN IRC CHANNEL. JUST USE SOME F*ING COMMON SENSE. What you say there can be attributed to you unless you properly anonymize your connection.

2. ANYONE can be Anonymous, even government agents. There is no verification process.

3. Anyone can DDos (LOIC and lots of other tools, #stfw for info if desired – if you participate without knowing what you are doing, you can be indentified and arrested. Hacking is a lot more work than DDos’ing. Take your time, don’t take shortcuts or you will probably get arrested and your have life highly disrupted. Again #stfw for info, knowledge is power. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR COMPETENCE.

4. SECURITY CULTURE SECURITY CULTURE SECURITY CULTURE. When you stand out in any way – like becoming an activist – it is very likely that someone actually is, or soon will be, out to get you. Save this very excellent instruction on how to conduct yourself as a h/activist. Re-read it regularly >>> http://www.crimethinc.com/texts/atoz/security.php.

*** The central principle of all security culture, the point that cannot be emphasized enough, is that people should NEVEr be privy to any sensitive information they do not need to know. SO DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL***

In the eyes of the State , we are all anonymous, faceless, voiceless. They fear us only when we are united.

We are Anonymous

We are Legion

We do not forgive

We do not forget

Expect us.

NYPD Police Brutality Continues Amidst Hoax

NYPD Officer Kills Baby Following Breastfeeding Argument

http://nationalreport.net/nyc-police-officer-kills-baby-breastfeeding-argument/

NYPD Cop Who Killed Baby Cleared Of All Charges

http://nationalreport.net/nypd-cop-killed-baby-cleared-charges/

 

Why do police officers resort to violence when victims are unarmed?   Why are  there so many dead unarmed Americans murdered by NYPD and other police departments if acts are lawful and in good faith?  Why are there so many instances of NYPD murders of unarmed and innocent black males?

 NYC Police Commissioner Bill Bratton  and NYC Major Bill DeBlasio are directly responsible for the culture of brutality that pervades NYPD.  Stop talking nonsense, Stop defending the unlawful activities of police officers who are criminals.

MY  questions to you both:  Are you intentionally recruiting criminals and white supremacists for your police departments?

As this baby Layla turned out to be a hoax, I think.     The National Report responded to its hoax with the following comments:

The publisher of National Report, who allegedly uses the name “Allen Montgomery,” spoke with the Casper Star-Tribune last year about his site posting a fake article about RFID chips being implanted in Wyoming residents. ”We have been targeting Tea Party types recently as they are the most gullible and are willing to spread misinformation across the internet with little/no research,” he told the Casper Star-Tribune. 

It is our opinion that if a person is too lazy to check for multiple references [or at least one other source] … and they spread misinformation around as fact, then they are to blame for their own stupidity, not us,” he said.

Unfortunately,  police brutality  directed against black people is under-reported,  under-appreciated and brings forth media biases.   We, ordinary  Americans, rely on  honesty and integrity of each other and  other online news sources  in reporting  facts– not fabrications or hoaxes in the midst of a crisis.   The National Report did more harm to our cause than any riot  by creating doubt  around real tragedies.

The National Report is not well known, at least, not by this blogger.  I will not read any further articles.  At least TheNewsNerd warns upfront.

One last point:  Thank you to those on Twitter who recognized the name, the hoax and informed me.  I welcome information including corrections.  We are a community.

Editor’s Note: Thank You From Me To YOU

 Thank You From Me To YOU

Yesterday, I was a child delivering the multimedia online news and opinion paper: Justice in America!

From my list of contacts, I delivered Justice in America to fellow Activists and Advocates of human rights and social justice.

The response was immediately amazing and downright awesome. I was more than pleased and humbled; my fears of being a pest were for naught and simply a reflection of my state of mind, not reality.

My gratitude to all who read the news stories in  Justice in America,  visited Failure to Listen and Retweeted.  Thank You!

Can I ask another favor?  If you like, become a subscriber of both.    😀

Enjoy the day!

Cheers,

Angela
