Chicago Police spent $5 million to hide the murder of black teen Laquan McDonald …here is the video!

A judge has ruled that police must release dashcam video showing the violent death of 17-year-old old Laquan McDonald, shot 16 times by officer Jason Van Dyke last October.

Judge Franklin Valderrama ruled the video must be released on Wednesday, Nov. 25 and denied a motion from the city to appeal the decision, securing the video’s release.

The video reportedly shows McDonald carrying a knife on the southwest side of the city on Oct. 20 last year, walking as far as the width of two car lanes away from police before an officer shoots him 16 times.

Obviously they are releasing the video on the day before Thanksgiving on purpose. To avoid rioting. If the streets explode, it will be hard for even the most skeptical observer to say it is anything but justified: McDonald never posed a serious threat to officers. Despite his erratic actions that included puncturing a squad car’s tire while high on PCP, the teen was clearly walking away as the fatal shots were fired.

That night, a Fraternal Order of Police spokesman told reporters what had happened in the eyes of the officers he represents in the union.

McDonald threatened the officers, said Pat Camden, the FOP rep. The officers were in fear for their lives, this former spokesman for the Chicago Police Department asserted. Jason Van Dyke, the officer identified as the killer by the Chicago Tribune, “discharged his weapon, striking the offender.”

Such is the language of all police shootings—until an autopsy occurs, or an eyewitness comes forward, or video evidence contradicts an officer’s statement.

“The story has 24 hours and it’s basically told by the police union, and the police union’s role is to defend its members,” says Jamie Kalven, a Chicago journalist who runs the Invisible Institute, a police-accountability nonprofit.

In a July interview with The Daily Beast, Kalven stressed the importance of independent autopsies—especially in cases like McDonald’s.

“What you do have with the autopsy, though, is one wholly independent piece of evidence.”

McDonald’s autopsy is a brutal document to read. I breezed through it in a conference room at the Cook County President’s Office in May, along with the 18 other autopsies detailing the deaths of those who died at the hands of the Chicago Police Department last year. Going through them, making sure they were all there, it can be easy to forget that these were once lives and not simply stacks of paper bundled four inches high.


Laquan McDonald_bullets
McDonald’s autopsy tells us the following: One of Van Dyke’s bullets grazed McDonald’s head, causing a groove in his skull one-quarter of an inch deep, one and three-quarters of an inch long.

That’s one.

A 9 millimeter bullet from Van Dyke’s service weapon was recovered from McDonald’s neck.

Two.

A bullet entered McDonald’s left upper chest and came out that same shoulder.

Three.

Another entered the right side of his chest, and a “markedly-deformed, copper-jacketed bullet” was recovered from McDonald’s torso, according to the autopsy report.

Four.

Another bullet lodged in McDonald’s left elbow. Five. One in the right upper arm. Six. One in the left forearm. Seven. Upper right leg. Eight. Left upper back. Nine. Another bullet in the left elbow and one more in the right upper arm. Ten and eleven. Two more in the right arm. Twelve and 13. One in the right hand. Fourteen.

Gunshot wounds in the right lower back and right upper leg round out the report.

Fifteen. Sixteen.

“They were completely locked down on that story,” Kalven said of police and public officials in the immediate aftermath of McDonald’s death.

And for good reason: Officer Jason Van Dyke had fired 16 shots into a 17-year-old boy—prompting the extended silence in the year and 30 days since the killing. If the accounts of those who have viewed the video—including at least one witness who says 13 shots were fired after McDonald was down—the disturbing and shocking footage may cause parts of Chicago to burn with the fires of rage that consumed Ferguson and Baltimore.

“If it is released, I don’t believe there will be any riot as the mayor fears,” said former Chicago police commander and Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) whistleblower Lorenzo Davis. “But I do believe it will prompt another increase in calls for police accountability.”

Since McDonald’s death, activists and some journalists and columnists in Chicago have called for the video to be released. Throughout that time, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and officials both in city government and within the Chicago Police Department have said the footage should remain sealed from public view. As part of a $5 million settlement between the city and the McDonald family, a judge barred attorneys from releasing the video.

Another of the McDonald family attorneys, Jeffrey Neslund, told the Chicago Sun-Times that the jarring footage will prompt chaos—and, possibly, riots.

“I met with [McDonald’s mother] and Laquan’s uncle,” Neslund said in April, “and he was really concerned. He didn’t want to see their neighborhood burned.”

Today’s decision comes as a result of a lawsuit filed by Chicago journalist Brandon Smith, who filed a FOIA request in May in an attempt to force the video’s release.

When Chicago police denied the request, Smith filed suit.

“The city hasn’t submitted evidence that releasing the video would harm any investigation,” Smith told The Daily Beast on Monday. “It has basically ceded that point in our case.”

While that may be Smith’s contention, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others have cited an ongoing federal investigation as reason why the footage shouldn’t be released, saying, “There’s an appropriate way to handle when videos become public, and that procedure will be followed.”

From the beginning, Chicago police have sought to conceal information about McDonald’s death—in at least one case by apparently violating not only IPRA procedures but the Constitution when they seized security footage from a nearby restaurant without a warrant.

Eventually, McDonald family attorneys learned that police had wiped 86 minutes of footage from that tape, which doesn’t include the shooting but does show the events that led up to the fatal confrontation.

When a reporter started poking around about the missing footage, a manager at the restaurant said he didn’t realize some of the footage was going to be deleted. When pressed, IPRA released a statement:

“We have no credible evidence at this time that would cause us to believe CPD purged or erased any surveillance video,” the agency told NBC Chicago.

Davis, the former police commander and one of only two black supervisors at IPRA, countered that statement with statements made to him by IPRA employees at the time.

“There was at least a couple of investigators at IPRA who did feel like a portion of [the security footage] was erased,” he told The Daily Beast on Tuesday.

Larry Merritt, spokesman for IPRA, would not comment on the 86 minutes of video that McDonald family attorneys allege was deleted.

“All I can say right now is that the status of the case is that it is still pending,” he said Tuesday.

In addition to the reportedly missing footage, audio from the dashcam footage depicting McDonald’s death is also absent, according to the family’s attorneys. The missing audio has served to cause only more speculation into the Chicago Police Department’s actions following McDonald’s death.

Laquan McDonald was one of 19 men killed by Chicago police in 2014, according to media reports and police data compiled from open records requests filed by The Daily Beast in the past year and a half.

The 17-year-old boy’s death was by far the most egregious use of lethal force by Chicago police, a Daily Beast review found from autopsy reports, investigative findings from the Independent Police Review Authority, and statements from law enforcement regarding all 19 police-involved killings.

The McDonald story begins on Oct. 20 when police were called to an industrial area in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood. There, the teen was reported by police to have been behaving erratically. Officers requested back up because they weren’t equipped with the Tasers they should have used to take McDonald down and arrest him.

McDonald was put down without the Tasers, anyway.

Van Dyke and four officers followed McDonald in their squad cars as he wandered, high on the PCP that was later found in an autopsy, waving a four-inch blade. The teen eventually teetered into the street from the side, prompting the need for officers to react, the police union spokesman Camden said. Van Dyke and other officers reportedly ordered McDonald to drop the knife.

When he didn’t comply, Van Dyke and his fellow officers tried to box McDonald in with their squad cars. McDonald responded by puncturing a tire.

What came next depends on who you believe, which is why so many have called for the release of the video that may answer the questions that have persisted since Oct. 20:

Why didn’t police wait for the Tasers to arrive?

Why did they shoot him so many times?

Why did Laquan McDonald have to die?

If the video is released—which remains up in the air because police are likely to appeal the judge’s decision—Chicago and the world may get a disturbing answer to those questions.

Michael Robbins, an attorney for the McDonald family, told the Chicago Tribune in April that the altercation “starts out as an unjustified shooting, and it turns into some kind of sadistic execution.”

A federal investigation into McDonald’s death was announced in April by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois, and includes IPRA, the FBI, and the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.

If a federal indictment is issued—which some in legal and law enforcement circles see as an inevitability—Van Dyke would be the defendant. With none of the other officers on the scene of McDonald’s death firing their weapons, Van Dyke is the lone killer. He is solely responsible for firing 16 bullets into the teen’s body as it reportedly bounced off the pavement, according to some who have viewed the troubling footage.

“I have not seen the video,” said Davis, the veteran cop, IPRA whistleblower, and police-accountability advocate. “But I’ve talked to people who have seen it, and they were horrified by what they saw.

‘Tis the season to Boycott!

As Black Friday nears we are all the more ready to Boycott! This is only the beginning! Don’t worry, we got the right ammo you need for the entire holiday season! ‘Tis’ the Season to Boycott!

People love Christmas. They are more willing to spend money during the Christmas holiday season than any time of the year. It is this innate joy that we get when we think about Christmas. We are reminded of spending time with our loved ones, of hanging up decorations as a family and giving gifts to those that we love.
We hear a rendition of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and like clockwork, our wallets open. We are unknowingly giving in to an intense marketing scheme to make us spend money, not to spread Christmas cheer.

While consumers are excited about the prospect of the holiday season, our ingrained materialism kicks into overdrive. Big businesses are aware of this.
We are being physiologically and emotionally bombarded and hypmotised into walking talking shopping zombies.

“..Its possible to brainwash, manipulate, coherse people to do just about anything and we see this demonstrated in military training..” says Paul McKenna, Ph.D. a professional Hypnotist. “..they do things way out side the parameters of what we would consider moral..” There is a reason these corporations hire trained professional hypnotist and phycologist.

So don’t let your family become victims of the holiday season. ‘Tis the season to #boycott!! Share this campaign/video with family and friends and let them know #Christmasiscancelled Don’t get played while Big corporations get paid. #APDTA

Christmas is Cancelled campaign for National Boycott. (JusticeOrElse)

Christmas has become the most wonderful time of the year for corporate companies. Every end of the year they can’t wait to see you rush to buy their products. Its all a big marketing scheme to open up emotional vulnerabilities that make people feel that without their products they are defective. Corporations hire phsycologist to sell what is essentially the same product every year. Consumers are emotionally and phycologically inclined to buy during this time because “its the season of giving” when in reality it is the season of buying. Christmas has become nothing but bait, laid out for certain types of consumers and since the black consumer market has reached $1 trillion this year, its safe to say the bait is laid out for us.

This year we are killing the bait, the pole, and the fisherman by canceling Christmas. Similar to the way you would cancel a check lol No we are not saying to stop any religious beliefs, but stopping a habit that has turned into a mindless shopping ritual centered on an old fat bearded guy with elves, reindeer, and dead trees is what we are saying lol.


So share this commercial because #ChristmasIsCanceled #APDTA

Officer beats and throws Black youth in her classroom: Is this child abuse?

A South Carolina sheriff’s deputy attacked a young black female high school student Spring Valley High School in Columbia.

Watch the video and you will see a school resource officer asking a student to get out of her seat. He then stands over her desk and tells the student, “either you’re coming with me or I’ll make you.” within a split second this animal grabs her and flips her over, slamming her onto the cement floor.

Then he drags her out of her chair and throws her across the room, as students watch but looking frightened. The deputy then pins her down on her stomach as he puts her hands behind her back. He tells another student, “I’ll put you in jail next.”

The officer was identified as Ben Fields.

Our sources say that this officer has a history of roughing up students.

Fields is listed on the Richland County sheriff’s department’s website as a senior deputy assigned to Spring Valley High School. On his now-deleted Twitter page, he described himself as football coach for the school’s defensive line, and a strength coach.

The Richland County sheriff’s department said it’s aware of the situation and currently investigating the attack. So far he has not been suspended or reprimanded.

In 2007, this officer Ben Fields was sued by a couple after another rough arrest in 2005.

Fields emptied a can of pepper spray on Carlos Martin, who parked next to him, according to court documents. The two started arguing after Martin was allegedly playing loud music, court documents showed. Fields arrested him.

During that arrest, Martin’s wife, Tashiana, took photos of the arrest, but Fields had his partner take her phone. She said the deputies threw her against a car and arrested her as well.

The couple sued the officer for illegal seizure, false arrest, excessive force and battery. The sheriff’s deputy claimed Tashiana ran toward the two officers swinging her arms while attempting to kick an officer in the head, according to court records. She denied the officer’s allegations.

Carlos said deputy Fields had kneed him several times after slamming him on the ground. Court documents said he suffered from post traumatic stress disorder after the arrest.

Facts:
  • Since the 2014 killings of unarmed 17 year old Mike brown in Ferguson, and unarmed  34-year-old father of four Rumain Brisbon in Phoenix, 1100+ people were killed at the hands of police.
  • Arizona ranks among the highest in nation for deaths by Cops
  • No FM or AM radio station currently play conscious Hip Hop in Phoenix
  • Officer Mark Rine was not charged for the killing of unarmed father Rumain Brisbon.
  • Since then Arizona passed a law in 2015 that will shield names of police in ‘deadly force’ killings.
  • The Public Enemy music video for “By the Time I Get to Arizona” aired on MTV only one time in 1991. However, PE’s message spread:
    The NFL pulled the 1993 Super Bowl from Tempe, Arizona, and thousands of conventions and tourists followed suit. It’s estimated the state lost $350 million in revenue before voters reconsidered the referendum in a 1993 vote, re-instating the King holiday.

Christians and Muslims unite in Washington DC to demand Justice or Else: #justiceorelse

Less than one week from the horrific slayings of 9 innocent black people at Charlotte AME Church came a solid wall of unity and power. Muslims, Christians and the media assembled at the Historic African Methodist Episcopal Church in Washington DC for the official press conference announcing the 20th Anniversary of the Million March March which will be held on 10-10-2015.

The press conference started with prayer and introductions by freedom fighter Tamika Mallory, Reverend Willie Wilson and Pastor Jamal Bryant of Empowerment Temple who electrified the audience by saying “Christians are going to unite with the Nation of Islam and nobody is going to turn us around.”

The key note speaker, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan brought the house down with powerful words of separation and economic withdrawal opposed to the message of atonement 20 years ago. Addressing the recent motions to remove the Confederate flags from government buildings The Minister said  “I don’t know what this fuss is about putting the Confederate Flag down, we need to put the American Flag down because we caught just as much hell over that! what the hell is the use paying allegiance to that Flag! (American flag)” He continued by saying “We fought in wars under that flag, then came home and got hung under that flag”. The Minister also said he respects the United States Flag as a independent nation.

Here are some real statistics concerning the conditions in the US today.

-45.3M people in the USA are living in poverty.

-Black unemployment is twice that of whites

-60% of people in prison are Black & Latino

-32% of Native American youth under 18 live in poverty

-28hrs from now police will have murdered someone Black
***Source justiceorelse.com***

Minister Farrakhan stressed that “the real thug don’t rob banks, he robs countries”. He noted that Justice is what black people know because of the brutal mistreatment by whites for more than 460 years. He also explained that the “Or Else” is God.

Charleston County Judge James “Skip” Gosnell also called black people niggers in court

By now you have either heard that Judge James “Skip” Gosnell opened the court proceeding with a personal statement for 21-year-old Dylann Roof, the white terrorist killer of nine innocent black people who were praying in a church. Judge Gosnell’s statement led off by expressing sympathy for the families of the murder victims, but by calling for sympathy for the family of the terrorist white killer.

“We have victims — nine of them. But we also have victims on the other side,” Gosnell said. “Nobody would have ever thrown them into the whirlwind of events that they are being thrown into. We must find it in our heart at some point in time not only to help those that are victims but to also help his family as well.” –  

But did you know this Judge was criticized by the Supreme Court for using racial slurs?

Four kinds of people…
In 2005 Judge Gosnell was officially reprimanded by the South Carolina Supreme Court for using a racial epithet aimed at a black defendant in court. this is what the Judge said:

“There are four kinds of people in this world: black people, white people, red necks, and Niggers,” Gosnell told an African-American defendant at a bond hearing in 2003, according to the state Supreme Court legal record of the case. Click here to read the reprimand. 

In another situation Gosnell was also reprimanded for granting preferential treatment to a fellow judge who had been arrested for DUI, helping the judge be set free from a detention cell before appearing at a legally-required bond hearing. (SMH)

The way Judge Gosnell referred to this killer was like he was talking to his grandson who broke a vase in the living room. This is another example of why we need real Justice or else.
