Getting information that provides information on police bias toward a variety of populations such as racial minorities, women (particularly younger women), and disabled populations. As well as those with addresses in affluent areas of their metropolis, would be very valuable to reducing harassment and citations.
In the metropolitan area where I reside, residents of affluent suburbs believe they receive a proportionally greater number of citations, due to their being far greater numbers of Police vehicles in their communities, or half a dozen police cars parked outside of venues, that follow each car as it leaves, or police harassment of younger
women in those communities, that is readily corroborated in face to face, on line chat room conversations, with one another.
The cause of death in Mr. Eric Garner’s case is NOT a chokehold. The mass of fat on Mr. Garner’s abdomen pushed the diaphragm into an upward, trapped position which interfered with any airflow, including at the neck. There is only one mechanism of suffocation: the trapped diaphragm. The suffocation occurred immediately on placement of Mr. Garner in the prone position on the sidewalk; keeping him pinned in this position extended the suffocation event. All other explanations of the struggle for air are moot; explanations about chokeholds and asthma are wrong as there is no airflow at the neck or into the lungs.
All five officers contributed to the placement and trapped diaphragm mechanism making them accountable for Mr. Garner’s suffocation death. No one should die in restraint, especially at the hand of LEOs who are responsible for conducting proper restraints when they arrest someone. Pre-existing medical conditions, including obesity, do not absolve the LEOs of responsibility. Most court cases have held that LEO-associated restraint asphyxia is unconstitutional and therefore, banned. SCOTUS agreed with a lower WI court in Weigel vs Broad that restraint asphyxia is unconstitutional. All five officers should have been criminally charged with second degree murder due to their responsibility to protect life. Instead, the five officers held Mr. Garner in the trapped diaphragm suffocation position while he stated: “I can’t breathe” eleven times.
It does not appear that LEOs fully appreciate this trapped diaphragm mechanism. The confusion of the medical examiners, officers of the court, and media only serves to confuse the public; the confusion emboldens the police to play games with the information about lethal events and processes, and thus obstruct justice. The trapped diaphragm mechanism plays out on the video of the death if one understands the mechanics of respiration and the interplay of a mass on the abdomen. All pulmonary, anesthesia, critical care, medical and surgical physicians understand the importance of keeping the diaphragm and the chest wall free to move air into the lungs. There should have been an immediate retraining of all LEOs in the nation to prevent other deaths. See the other obesity-related fatal asphyxia restraints of Mr. Luis Rodriguez, Mr. Robert Ethan Saylor, Mr. Allen Kephart and Mr. Roy Lee Nelson Jr.
NYPD Abuse +why NYPD WNT release roster.
In 2012, a tow truck driver assaulted my then pregnant sister. After pushing her to the ground, and having fled over our shepherd running after him, he lied to his employer about a gun being pulled.
Of course it never happened, but AFTR a parking dispute that prompted a famous neighbor to “open” a report should things escalate, opportunist NYPD Sergeant Kevin Blake violated s. 175.3/4 filing a false written statement meant to terrorize the neighbor into signing a report that she previously is on record of stating not wanting any harm to come.
NYPD and their lack of transparency and Manhattan DA’s lack of Discovery affords malicious prosecution and abuse to go unanswered and worse continue.
The 2012 FOIL was released after Discovery- after the fact suggested impropriety that not only discredits Sgnt Blake 2015 assault, but uncovers a gross abuse of power and the very reason NYPD will not release records.
*NYPD Police Commissioner O’Neill was provided irrefutable evidence given by a local Police Captain but instead of his pursuit of the truth, he chose to block.
Why do police lie- to make high profile collars.
*6% of Sergeants make Lieutenant.
Blake is now CO/Ltn of the 19th Precinct.
w/out transparency I’d have never known of his advancement had it not been for another victim of Blake’s having contacted me via social media I’d have no idea his continued abuse.
TY for your story.
This will become a national story as the NYAG has been investigating since she first assumed office, us being Newtown’s 1st Boots on the ground org., was also first to be supported by #GivingPledge, and have celebrity support as long as all the major network executives.
*GivingPledge is a small group of individuals who pledge half of their wealth to philanthropic endeavors.
*Bill Ackman of Pershing Sq. Is the first person listed. He and his wife Karen pledged a Billion dollars and pledged his support the very day Sandy Hook suffered.
MacKenzie Bezos has also recently pledged $38b.
