Police Severely Beat and Break Ribs of 80 Year Old Army Veteran…Because…

Below is a man by the name of Bill Swan. He is 80 years old, an army veteran, a cancer survivor and a victim of police brutality. After surviving and beating cancer, he was then beaten severely by the police. He suffered not only an extremely brutalized face, but several broken ribs as well.

Why? Because he “refused to obey orders” given by cops…but there was a reason for that…he’s deaf ; so he obviously heard nothing. Of course not one officer will be punished, they are beating and/or killing every day. They are using excessive and fatal force because they can- and they know it.

How they live with themselves, I will never know. But, nevertheless, using excessive force because an 80 year old doesn’t do as ‘ordered’ is uncalled for, no matter the situation. He posed absolutely no threat to anyone; not the cops, not society. It is the cops who pose the threat; not him, not Michael Brown. It is the cops who are the true threats, as far as I am concerned. 

And as I always say, this is not a solo case, this is common place. But everyone keeps going on about their daily business, never stopping to think of another or help another until it is you.

There needs to be justice for each and every soul who has had to endure brutality; for each family who has lost a child or a loved one. For each soul who has been brutalized for absolutely no reason. It will continue, until enough people stand up and say no more. I support the rioting happening, because we’ve been asking kindly for so, so long.

84 Yr Old Man Viciously Beaten for Jaywalking and Not Speaking English in NYC…

This story is all over the news, as it should be, however I can’t stress enough that this is sadly not the first 84-year-old man to be beaten by the police over nothing. However, I’ll keep this post focused, for once.

On the Upper East Side in NYC Kang Wong, 84, jaywalked across an intersection. Who does he think he is!? (Sarcasm.) According to witness reports, the man apparently struggled to understand -or perhaps didn’t understand at all- the cops demands to stop. I’d like to take this opportunity to say, Mr. Wong apparently does not speak English. Which is all well and good but not when the cops are involved; they don’t care if you are mentally ill, mentally disabled, blind, deaf (scroll through my posts)… to them, you are fair game.

NYC is my home, I’ve jaywalked, who hasn’t? We live Continue reading 84 Yr Old Man Viciously Beaten for Jaywalking and Not Speaking English in NYC…

Deaf Man, 64, Beat During Traffic Stop by Cops.

The cops beat yet another innocent man. This poor man is not the first nor the last. One of the things that prompted me to join the police brutality agency I worked for was seeing a man beat to death after he was hog tied for being loud after an episode of narcolepsy. This is not random, this is not rare. It is tragic, and we need to do something to stop it, or at least bring more awareness to it. Turning your cheek makes your hands just as bloody as theirs.

For this one story, there are countless others… Some make the papers, others don’t. It’s time to end the talking and do something, I believe.

Story beings.

An elderly deaf Oklahoma man was beat by two highway patrol troopers earlier this month for allegedly refusing to comply during a traffic stop.

According to reports, 64-year-old Pearl Pearson left the scene of a minor automobile accident before being pulled over by Oklahoma Highway Patrol on January 3.

After issuing several vocal commands from their police vehicle, troopers claim Pearson refused to show his hands. Despite a large placard on his driver’s door stating, “Driver is deaf,” Pearson claims troopers immediately began hitting his face as he attempted to show his ID, which also states that he is hearing-impaired.
