Surveillance video shows the final, excruciating moments of Army veteran Elliott Williams' life as he lay paralyzed on the cold concrete floor of a Tulsa jail cell.

A mental health worker would later tell Williams' father, “He’s acting like he’s paralyzed, but we know he’s not."

Williams died 6 days after he was arrested at a Marriott hotel on Oct. 21, 2011. He was staying with his parents after the breakup of his marriage. He later checked into the Marriott Hotel, where he appeared to have a mental breakdown in a hotel lobby. Hotel staff called the police.

Two police officers arrived soon after. Williams' parents, Earl and Katha, informed the cops that he had a history of mental illness. Williams wasn't making sense, one of the officers noted in the police report.

Earl Williams told the police Elliott's wife recently left him and he hadn't slept in days.

“Eliah is out of my life, she is out of my life, take a shot,” Elliott Williams allegedly told police. “What is wrong with you all, are you scared? It’s a suicide; do I need to provoke you?”

Officer Benjamin Wolery would later say Williams took a “threatening” step toward him. Another cop, Jack Wells, peppered sprayed Williams and knocked him to the ground.

According to the OSBI report, Wells pressed his knee into Williams' back as Williams lay face down on the ground.

Earl said he saw his son's foot dragging when the officers raised him up and took him to a patrol unit.

When the cops placed Williams in the back of the unit, he told his father he loved him. That was the last time the 2 men spoke.

The next morning, at the jail's booking area, Wells slammed Williams to the floor. He later told OSBI he “landed on top of Elliott’s shoulder and head,” but that the prisoner “appeared to be fine with no injuries.”

Surveillance footage captured Williams struggling to stand. “At this time it is obvious that Williams is having a difficult time standing,” a sheriff's deputy noted in a report.

Other deputies noted Williams appeared to be suffering from a brain injury. He was incoherent and he may have had a seizure.

The report claimed Williams "rammed his head into a glass window on the cell door" after being taken to a holding cell.

Williams told nurses he felt like his neck was broken. But a nurse noted Williams was "fine" and he may be faking his injuries.

A jail captain checked on Williams and observed that he had defecated and urinated on himself.

Williams was later hoisted onto a gurney and taken to a shower, where a nurse told him he should be "ashamed of himself" for faking paralysis.

Williams was "dumped" off the gurney and onto the shower floor where he lay for an your.

The jail’s then-Chief Deputy Michelle Robinette later said in a deposition, that the jailers' conduct was wrong “Because you don’t dump people off of gurneys.”

The jail captain testified that Williams “would not stand up but we did give him a shower anyway,”

Another officer said he saw Williams lying face down in the shower, screaming, “Help me!”

After the shower, Williams was taken back to a cell, where he lay naked on a bed. A cup of water was placed out of his reach. He attempted in vain to reach for the cup.

On Oct. 24, a nurse reported that Williams was lying on a bed naked and refusing to speak. Another nurse stated Williams “acted as if paralyzed, saying ‘I want water.’”

At around 8:30 a.m., two officers dragged Williams on a blanket to his new cell and placed a Styrofoam cup of water at his feet, again out of his reach.

“This was the only cup of water placed in [the cell] from October 25 to the time that Mr. Williams died on October 27,” court papers allege.

Deputies would later testify that they tossed containers of food into Williams' cell. But he couldn't reach the containers. Video footage shows him struggling to reach the food.

When his father, Earl, called the jail, he was told he couldn't visit Elliott because of his condition.

On Oct. 26, around 7:30 a.m., a mental health counselor visited Williams in his cell. She taunted him, saying, “if he wanted to be bailed out by his parents… he would have to walk to the car,” court records show.

A psychiatrist who met with Williams said the inmate "demanded a bucket of water to drink." It was the first and last time the psychiatrist saw Williams.

On the day before he died, a nurse observed Williams' grave condition and ordered a staffer to open his cell door. But the staffer refused, noting safety concerns. The nurse gave up and left.

Three hours later, Williams desperately tried again to reach the cup of water, this time knocking the cup over and spilling the contents. The cup was never refilled.

On Oct. 27 at 5:10 a.m., a jailer dropped a third and final food container into the cell. The jailer noted Williams' head was lying in a pool of his own saliva.

Hours later, Williams was unresponsive.

Two nurses debated whether to perform CPR on Williams. One nurse stated she would only do CPR on Williams while standing up.

The medical examiner ruled Williams' death was due to “complications of vertebrospinal injuries due to blunt force trauma” to his head and neck.

The coroner's report also noted Williams died from dehydration.

Attorneys for the Williams family accused the Tulsa jail officials of “deliberate indifference” to Williams' mental and physical condition.

Court documents show a visiting doctor saw dried vomit on Williams' face and the unopened food containers in his cell the day before he died. The doctor warned the jail’s medical director that Williams “looked sick, needed a CT scan and needed to go to the hospital."

But the director later testified he didn't recall the conversation.

“People just die sometimes,” the director said.

    They all should die a slow and horrible death for what they did to this man.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    These "cops" are monsters with a badge. To let that man suffer and die like that is a very monstrous thing to do.

  • Yoni

    I'm so sick of this shit!

  • Loyal Lifestyle

    If they start allowing these officers to experience the same treatment that they give to the ones they m?rder, this would stop immediately. And the nurses are just as guilty for turning a blind eye to his cries for help.

    smh...no words!!!!

    Everyone needs to fry. The nurses too.

  • Yoni

    I want each and EVERY ONE OF THEM to be removed.............from this earth. THIS just made me sick to my stomach.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    They MORE at fault. Bff was a prison nurse for AGES. Her ass would be fired and charged here. Trust. Im more interested in what is the status of the nurses in this instance.

  • Yoni

    From the bottom to the top, top to the damn fukkin bottom!

  • Yoni

    Too late.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I just typed below I am interested in the nurses in this case more than the police. I want to know what is being done against them.

  • Milani

    Especially the one that just "gave up and walked away", smh...
    what they plan on doing with her.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I'm surprised none of them lost their license in addition to charges WTH!?!?!?

    this story was suppressed for over 4 years!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    THIS right here sis. That was the point for ME. And THIS: Two nurses debated whether to perform CPR on Williams.

    My God, every day we are getting to see just how cruel people are these people will come. JUDGEMENT WILL COME.

    DAMN WHERE IS REDEEMED.

    SICK BASTIDS

  • hi-liter

    If a Nurse told an officer to open the cell to check on him, that's what should have been done. The nurse is the one with the medical license, not the officer. The officer should have done what he was told by the nurse, maybe the man's life could have been saved.

  • Cricket404

    Predators! Preying on the weak, they should have never had him he was supposed to be in an ambulance not police car to get humiliated and murdered.

  • Vonn

    Exactly. There wasn't anything to debate. You are on duty...you perform CPR.

  • Yoni

    You're really surprised? How Sway? I'm surprised that you're surprised. I'd be more surprised if they DID lose their licensure and received jail time.

  • H-Town Girl

    LL...Just remember life for this staff isn't no where near over...they don't believe water is wet until they are up to their nose in it. Life is full of really dumb and insensitive people who throw spiked boomerangs they don't believe it until that same boomerang comes back...TRUST & BELIEVE it most certainly does!!!!!....:0)

  • Yoni

    And one said she would only do it standing up. Wow!

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Here is my thing. We just discussed YESTERDAY and I have said many times that it is WRONG for police not to be held accountable for CPR. They have to know it and certify on it in the academy, but after that hardly ANY major US city tracks it. Its just "highly recommended". Not mandated. So there were nurses present and its STILL not given? What in the fukk part of the game is THAT

  • Alisa

    And this treatment happens often in prisons, psychiatric hospitals, nursing homes. People wake up go to work and do this to people get paid and feel no remorse. Sad how so many can be involved and few hv the balls to come foward and do the right thing. This is so sad

    This! *taps on mic while stepping on soapbox* black lives matter is a movement about the abuse of authority and lack of justice often prevalent in poc victim cases. If you are unhappy with the status of your community you should seek out the black church, outreach programs and the naacp as it is their mission statements to improve the lives of blacks.

    This is a horrible way to die. I hope his parents sue! I will never call the police on a love one who is experiencing a mental crisis. These MFs makes me sick

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Reading this made my heart and my head ache. RIP Mr. Williams. I hope everyone involved in his treatment has to experience one of their loved ones getting the same level of "care" one day.

    Let me go get some food before I get a full-blown headache in this post. Ugh!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Im more interested in what is the status of the nurses in this instance.

    Agreed!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I'm surprised because things are handled differently on the medical side. Their licenses were supposed to be stripped if anything....all of them. You're right though :facepalm: If a governor can poison an entire city and still keep his job and no charges, I shouldn't be surprised :coffee:

  • Jusstlookn

    Read about it back 2013....my mom told me. They use live in OKC and was elated when my dad got new ordees to relocate. Lets just say they dont like people of color.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    ?Jesus. I have nothing else.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I am reading this. this is more medical. Not law enforcement. I mean them. Bc if not for them he would not have been there. But this is 80% medical staff blame. And it was not their first time.

    Supervisors would also routinely direct nurses to falsify and backdate
    medical records, the nurse said. When inmate Lisa Salgado died of a
    heart attack in 2011, Harrington said, it was discovered her vital signs
    were never recorded in a chart. A supervisor ordered nurses to “doctor
    her medical records so that it would appear… vitals had been taken,”
    court papers show.

  • Vonn

    But those very same cops can administer narcan to ppl that overdose, especially now since heroin is a white epidemic. They can save a life with drugs, but not CPR. Nurses that do not perform ALL of their duties do not deserve a job, nor license.

  • Entertainment

    They are going to hell for this what has happened to this world people lack compassion it's a dang shame how people with authority and small amounts of power act I hope they lose their jobs freaking jerks

  • Yoni

    And for folks that like to point out......THIS is up the BLM alley. Not that black lives don't matter any other time. But HERE is where folks need to be charged and HELD ACCOUNTABLE just as folks are when there IS black-on-black crime.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Lord, have mercy. They are horrible all around.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I am reading this link. This is not the first time the medical side of law enforcement did wrong in Tulsa. It seems to be routine. I am so mad at the medical aspect of this.

    "The former employee said several people died at the jail because of a
    lack of medical care. And when they did pass away, nurses would attempt
    to resuscitate them and call EMS to take them to the hospital, so the
    official pronouncement of death would occur off-site. That way,
    officials wouldn’t have to report a jail death, Harrington said."

    Wtf going on man. For once I aint burning mad at the damn police department. I am. But Im BIG mad at these dr.'s and nurses.

    My God. And I am not using the Lord's name in vain. I'm calling, crying out in the name of Jesus to bring an end to the evil doers in this world. These diabolical bastards had no respect even for a military service man because he was black. That man suffered so much before he died negligently, brutally and unnecessarily at the hands of the white man. They will pay one way or another. RIP MY BROTHER. Your pain is over now.

    Fugg em. All of em. Just disrespectful to the core values providing medical care.

    I want all of them fired. Stripped. Starved. Rough housed. Left to hang in the balance, while somebody debated on whether or not he should have a drink of water, receive medical care, get CPR. I want all of them to feel the same ramifications and decision making skills that they made in someone else's life.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    These folks KILLING these inmates. Just standing back and letting them damn die en mass.

    Families of inmates who died at the Tulsa County jail have joined in on a civil rights lawsuit. They're suing the sheriff and the jail's healthcare provider over what they call a "who cares" attitude for inmates with medical and mental health needs.

    The lawsuit involves four people. Three of them died at the jail and
    one nearly died. It's one of several lawsuits involving 10 total
    inmates, who are suing for cruel and unusual punishment.

    This was hard to read. And cops don't understand why no one trusts them. I'm not in the beehive, but for them to get mad at her for her video when they know the things that go on in their precinct is puzzling. This kind of stuff keeps happening in every city, town, and state in America and they act like they are oblivious to what is happening to folks.

    In the med field POC stands for products of conception....aka a miscarriage or abortion. So I'm wishing that some of these racist ass folks were products of conception....aka miscarriages or abortions.

    Additionally what you dont hear about it what Obama has done.

    President Barack Obama created the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The commission issued a report on March 2, 2015, that made numerous recommendations. It did not call for all officers to wear body cameras, but did call for independent prosecutors to investigate civilian deaths in police custody or in officer-involved shootings.

    This is a real problem across the country, folks around the country in postions to make change are working, it never makes national news, but its happening!!!!

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    although I don't agree we are in a minority coalition considering the blatant use of the black Christian civil rights movement to equate all other minorities with the black American struggle for equality. It's a juvenile reaction. I get it, the race politics that leads some Chinese Americans to protest for killer cop Peter Liang is a slap in the face but in reality it's often poc cops who are prosecuted for their abuse of power. Either way, this heightened awareness and speculation of official police statements is a positive result of the blm movement. Imo the naacp should've been had lawyers on retainer to subpoena all videos for all cases involving blacks but they couldn't even background check Rachel dolezal.

    Edit: I say juvenile reaction because it's really about constitutional rights but the hypocrisy, lack of oversight, abuse of power, always seems to be exposed by the most ethical people often denied those rights...us

    President Obama can't and will not change the system of racism white supremacy because it is a system for white genetic survival. Meaning ppl who classify themselves as white can't stop being racist, if the do they will turn Black and we both know they don't want that, they want to remain white.

    Only we have the power (through Black Self Respect) to replace the system of racism white supremacy with a system of justice.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I just...

    They treated that man like he was arrested for pedophilia or something. All of that over an alleged non-violent mental breakdown in a hotel lobby. I don't care who has family members that are cops, these cops need more training. They should be required to have a four year degree. Psychological testing should be mandatory. Cultural diversity training and conflict resolution training needs to be mandatory. Period. I'm sick of these weak minded inbred hick cops and these "skin folks" that are too dang afraid of their shadow to stand up and speak up when they see people, specifically their own people, being treated worse than you would treat a dam dog. Like for real, I'm sick of people....

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Basically you are saying the man laid in the same damn position for two days and didn't eat or drink... they knew he suffered from mental illness and the most he received was a visit from an incompetent nurse that probably got her dam certificate online. Smdh.

    But let it had been a dam dog they were dragging around.

    That man pissed and shat himself...yo... but it's not about race. I'm just sensitive. Everything is love and lollipops. Ugh man.

My people.....do we now have our martyr for those who make excuses to finally see the truth?! They have finally created enough fear that even the people who take an oath to preserve and save lives (medical professionals) either turn a blind eye or are too afraid to push the issue.

    No they didn't. They arrested this man like they do black men. Pedophiles get treated with respect in the amerikkklan justice system. They are "segregated" for their "safety". They are not tazed, rough-housed, dragged, pepper sprayed or anything. They arrested a mass murderering, domestic terrorist better than this, They took his ass to Burger King because he "seemed nice". They said this man took a threatening "step" toward them and they felt the need to pepper spray him. Slam him. Clumsily come down on his head and neck and then let him die. Pedophiles get a couple years and their jobs back. I'm sick of people too.

    I actually had to stop watching this. I cannot believe even though this happened 5 years ago. Smh...at the lack of compassion and humanity for others. He was a Human being not an animal. Animals are treated better than this young man was. I watched the video and I was looking at his lower extremities.. His lower limbs did not move at all. Since the duration of the video you can clearly see that his legs nor toes moved at all!!!. That right there is a sign of paralysis. This is truly inhumane on all levels. I hope his family is compensated for his death and more. I'm not going to make this a race debate. But its truly some evil and despicable demons in this world!!!!!!. Im just wondering if he was another race color creed ethnicity would he have been treated differently... They just threw the food trays at him like uuuugggghhhh... My heart is heavy right now!!!!! I feel for the last hour's and days of this young mans life... May he R.I.H.

    Sad to say but this will NEVER stop happening until this world is over. No one cares about black people. No one. Not even some black people. The ONLY reason why they have not out and out blown us to the next galaxy is because they still have SOME use for us as a people...aka...money and service. The very milisecond they feel no further need for us, they will try to quickly eliminate us. Stop believing that a march, a lawyer, a riot or anything of the kind will garner change. It won't. The only thing that will stop this is with The Most High God comes to seek his revenge. Things will get worse. All of these wicked people will most certainly get theirs. .

    I think that is the general consensus. When I say I been sad since reading this mess 2 hours ago? Almost every single Rose that commented has been touched by this post on today.

    Preach! This is why I stay prayed up and hope for the best. Nothing will change until He comes. I keep to myself and don't worry about being in other folks business.

    If I did that to my dog, I would go to prison. I can't even keep a dog outside without having to follow strict rules.

  • SandrasNewFave

    I started out happy that they pepper sprayed him rather than shooting him on the spot- but if they were only gonna do him like this....Damn! It would have been kinder (if ever there were such a thing) to have shot him in the hotel lobby. Nobody, no-freakin-body should die like this. No parent should have this happen to their child.
    Where's the story in Peeple magazine? Where SeaInnInn? Why wasn't this a big deal like when Taylor Swift changed from red to crimson lipstick? Or when Kardashian clothes went from beige to tan? Ohhhh, I forgot just another black man dying in jail. None of this would have happened if he wasn't in the wrong to begin with. Well fawkkette, let little affluenza dehydrate and die on a floor!!!!
    And I know it wrong, I do. But it's dead fawking wrong here too.

  • Nonya Bizness

    The story got worse and worse as I read. They know they were taunting that man with water and food. WHY did they need him to stand so badly? Because they think they know all,and just knew he was "faking"? Why not try to stand him up and watch him not be able to stand? Do that 3 days earlier and the man might still be alive. "Two nurses debated whether to perform CPR on Williams. One nurse stated she would only do CPR on Williams while standing up." For real? I have never seen someone receive CPR standing up. I didn't practice on the CPR dummy standing up. Isn't standing up for the Heimlich Maneuver? I just want to hurt so many people right now, and cry at the same time. "People just die sometimes". I just can't with these monsters.

  • Auditor

    Same thing I said...cause um I've taken a few CPR classes and ain't nan dummy standing up.

  • OSHH

    That was a heartbreaking read. God bless his soul.

  • Auditor

    They been doing it...ain't sh*t new...

  • SandrasNewFave

    I just watched a FB video where the lady was campaigning for her daughter who the stepdaddy assaulted. This former military man with 3 kids got 90 days. NINETY! Not weeks, not months- days. And the mother of his children was not notified of his conviction.

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    Can we get a new post? I can't get jiggy with this shyt. I stayed away as long as I could only to see it's still here.

  • Auditor

    Yup got to clean up sh*t and have em on a leash. But nope this man got to lay in his for days...

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I keep leaving and then coming back and its still here. Maybe that is why. Maybe we NEED to look at it. Nobody has heard of this pretty much except a few here all these years. And when I started clicking on the links, doing the education seems like this is commonplace in Tulsa. An epidemic. All these inmates dying there like this. A gatdamn SHAME.

  • AnonymousRose

    We must stop looking to their GODS, for all of our answers, if the bible be true, let everyman be a liar, we are here because we choose to be, we are the most religious folks, and still cant get a prayer thru for us, we call prayer, a house a car, again. Their GODS, we seek damnation on ourselves, but we cant see it, we are our destruction, we make excuses for EVERYTHING. to justify his GODS, we have been left in the wilderness, our women became haughty, jezebel, spirits, and we call good evil annd evil good, we are backwards, men have become women and we say girl is looking good, again, WOE TO THEM, THAT CALL EVIL GOOD AND GOOD EVIL. , we do it si much its become first nature. Blacks u are your own nightmare, and when he told u he coming like a thief in the night, have u seen him yet, , im Not here for debate, just a lil thought for the ears that want to hear.

  • Sheyonce

    This whole thing was so sad and disgusting to watch. Instead of running the proper medical tests, these degenerates decide to put him in a video monitored cell and then CLEARLY don't watch the video. As you said, his legs never moved the entire time. You can even see his hands were curled, which is also a clear sign that something is wrong. It sickens me to think of the story that would have been told had this not been caught on camera. SMMFH...

    People always wonder how these bad cops & nurses get away with this kind of stuff. Just look at all the "good" ones who watched this happen. The nursing staff should be ashamed of themselves, they are trained to know better. SEVERAL employees (cops, nurses, etc.) all saw something was very wrong and didn't do anything! And they need to stop with that knee to the back mess. That is extremely dangerous, yet it seems to be a standard practice for police. Again, SMMFH!

  • It’s Taurus Season

    "She was a 26-year-old heroin addict, pulled over for a routine traffic

    Ummm Fukk Madaline? That is exactly how far I got. And the conclusion I have made. I feel sorry her family is probably sad that her junkie ass is dead but...I mean...thats it.

  • Guess Who

    This is beyond sad, it almost brought me to tears.

    This brotha didn't stand a chance. I am STUNNED medical professional dismissed his claims without checking out what he was saying. Yeah, folks in institutions lie all the time about being injured by my goodness couldn't they see this man was really hurt?

    Tragic. He lost his family and his life. RIP to him.

    I am so SICK of peckawoods and cooning azz nuggas still denying racism and the vicious, sadistic brutality WHITES IN POWER do to blacks.

  • Yoni

    I saw that yesterday on da book! AND he was a COP at one point.

    Or did you see the story where this "cop" framed a black man. Sent him to jail for four years. Got caught being a dirty cop. Got maybe a year. Ended up working SIDE-BY-SIDE with the same black man he framed and the blk guy forgave him. They're friends.

  • Yoni

    He touched some kids???????

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    That's what I'll try?? thanks??

  • Taylordanes

    I am in tears this is completely absurd. Everyone involves needs to be in that same jail!!!!!!!

  • mocha27

    You're right Sheyonce the staff are trained to know better. And his hands were curled smh.. His life was meaningless to them!!!

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    ??? I actually was viewing tutorials on YouTube last year. I'm soooooooo lazy, will take into consideration.thanx??

  • It’s Taurus Season

    No worries hun. Cause Jesus KNOWS I wanted someone to change the subject.

  • Taylordanes

    and the MEDICAL STAFF!!!!!

  • Yoni

    So nobody knows the outcome being that this happened a few years ago?

  • It’s Taurus Season

    A kid. A 14 year old girl. I told you they had looked him up and everything.

    Edit: They even let him go to Family Day function.

  • Blak

    unaddressed mental health issues that was ignored by his family
    is what killed this man

  • Taylordanes

    I honestly have to log out for a bit. I am so disturbed at this situation. I cant belief people are so cruel! And to think he already was suffering mentally which is hell in itself.

  • Yoni

    What got me was THIS shit..........

    ".....Pitkin had all the right identity markers. She was young, white, and pretty. She lived in the supposed left-wing utopia of Portland, Oregon. She was from a middle-class family..."

  • Auditor

    You can have a mental breakdown at any point in your life...does not mean you had anything wrong with you before. If you read the article he was separated from his wife. What takes a toll on one person might not have a toll on the next.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    She was young, white, and pretty.
    ^^^^^^^^^^
    Im not sure if I got that far. FOH with young white and pretty.

  • Blue Millionz

    Absolutely so true. To read about a human A Man.....A Black Man......just tortured...left for dead...so ancient... I didnt think it still Existed like THAT... I mean They didnt Care It Was Under Surveillance or Anything... Taping For Days...So We Could ( Not Only) Read The Horror and Speculated if This man was in custody (pretending) ... HE WAS THROWN AROUND AFTER HE WAS ARRESTED...Yes!! He BECAME PARALYZED!! They Let Him Suffer & Die! ...

  • mocha27

    Yes, they did let him suffer and die... That's alright condemnation is knocking at their door as we speak!!!

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    Exactly my point. People always ask where is BLM when black on black violence occurs when BLM is for the awareness and action against corrupt officials in power not distributing justice as dictated by the constitution, federal and state laws. This is a prime example of BLM opening the eyes of the general public to systemic police abuse...and not the Naacp who already had the educated manpower to champion this cause.

  • Yoni

    The 'right identity markers' is what did it for me. Really bitch. What makes them so "right"? UGH!

  • SameoleJ

    Just don't. I saw this and scrolled pass, as this is exactly what I was talking about....man is paralyzed and pretty much tortured (thought they shut down Guantanamo Bay) and someone comes and blames the victim and his family.Meanwhile the fact that this happened 5 years ago and NO dirt has turned up on him to make him a "bad guy"......that still doesn't cause them to say hmmmm!! LORD.......back to doing some work.

  • Ceezus

    Speak!! I had not heard one word of this tragedy until SR.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Yep. Most likely. Whole call center including the HR department knew though.

  • SandrasNewFave

    As for dude befriending that dirty pig- ain't no way it could be me. I understand forgiveness and how that goes but they work side-by-side cause it's a place that employs convicts.

    It is sickening and the fact that they verbally expressed this 5 years ago, speaks volumes.......all those folks who scream this is something new and people are bringing it on themselves................I dare them to justify this, like Eric G. was "justified" and Tamir R. was "justified", even Trayvon M. (killed by a damn civilian) was "justified"....this man begged for his life, asked for help!! and for days was subjected to inhuman and life threatening treatment!! I guess once again, their eyes will deceive them!! I am sick to mu stomach with this DAMN COONERY!! I am sorry, @disqus_u2cDTETVQH:disqus, but any person Black, White, Chinese, but especially a P.O.C. who finds a way to justify this is a Boot Licking, Yes master, I'zza a Good Slave COON!! #ISAIDWHATISAID

    My sentiments exactly! Sadly, the jailers' misconduct isn't too surprising; but not one single Medical Professional who came into contact with this man formed enough backbone to actually advocate on his behalf??? That's the sh*t that has me steamed.

    You're a Nurse. You "mention" to the jailer that they need to open the door so you can examine the motionless patient on the ground. They give you some BS about "safety," and you bounce -without seeing to the patient, who ain't moved at ALL?? WHAT THE F*CK KINDA BULLSH*T IS THAT???

    Each time I review this post I get more heated.

    I think I may have to log off for the day.

    I've never been to jail (so this is based on TV) but if after a few days a person isn't eating or drinking, is there no medical intervention?

    There is no excuse for this man not having been taken to a hospital. Head injury, by any means, coupled with subsequent paralysis equals EMS ride to ER!

  • andrice

    BLM is flawed either we care about our lives in their entirety or they dont, period. Its absurd to champion a cause against police brutality alone under the BLM moniker when their is an even greater need to save ourselves from us....
    In short, BLM needs to be comprehensive in its approach.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    NEW POST FINALLY!!

  • rayne215

    Is there any updates on this story? The trial against the cops were supposed to happen already. I really hope those nurses lose their licence. Ugh

  • Empress

    This is beyond cruel. I can't even respond. Their is no justice on this Earth to make up for this atrocity. Obatala please step in.

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    I applaud your efforts to make BLM more comprehensive but I doubt that was the intent of your comment. However, and again....you are requesting of BLM what the naacp, outreach programs and church's are designed to do from an organization (blm) that clearly stated their mission was to make aware and fight against the injustice from authority to civilian.

    I guess what you really want is the moniker to be changed from blm to constitutional rights matter. Well what say you of the well funded ineffective naacp? That acronym is a joke as they have not been the leaders of gaining equality and/or justice for the many black people facing police abuse. Shouldn't they be must comprehensive given their history? No? ...I guess let's just attack and silence blm...

  • Rayne

    Omg. All of them should lose everything immediately!!

  • andrice

    Well, you were wrong. My message is simply- be comprehensive or be quiet.
    While the women that originated the initiative were genuine in their efforts, many of the individuals subsequently involved, like Shawn King, have compromised the credibility of the movement. That coupled with the notion that only wayward police threaten the lives of Black Americans has led many to dismiss the efforts.

    I'm holding everyone with a voice accountable. Most of those championing BLM are in fact NOT members of any of the foundational organizations such as NAACP and the Urban League.

    Oh my goodness this story is so sad. I hate that this man had to endure any of this, but I do know that God sits high and looks low and these horrible people that are supposed to protect and serve will not get away with what they are doing. Heartless and cruel and it sickens me that we have so many bad cops. May this young man sleep in peace and the family receive justice in this case.

    Why was this man even in jail? Someone is in mental distress, they didn't commit a crime, they should have been taken to the hospital to be evaluated. I've seen people geek on drugs/alcohol and though police were there so were the ambulance and they were taken to the hospital. This was so fcked up.

    How is it that these jailers and so called mental health workers can distinguish if an individual is suffering from pain or a brain injury or any ailment or faking it when actual doctors during a diagnostic health exam cant't even determine this . They can only be objective where the suffering individual symptoms are subjective and actually feels the pain within themselves. All these killers because that's what they all are need to all be charged and prosecuted. This poor man died from blunt force trauma and dehydration. I don't care how uncooperative a person is there are ways to restrain or lead someone to where they need to be without causing injury or violently handling to the point where they defecate or urinate on the,selves or suffer paralysis. When someone asks for water you give them water or iv electrolytes if they are able to orally drink. I'm so sick to my stomach hearing about these damn cops and jailers who think they have the intelligence or are medically licensed to make an assumption about ones condition.
