Good Cops Stand Around and Watch as Rogue Cop Takes Out His Aggression on Non-Violent Teen

Pittsburgh, PA — After assaulting a 19-year-old man outside of a football game, Pittsburgh police officer Sgt. Stephen Matakovich was arrested and charged with assault. However, in a glaring and insulting display of blue privilege, on Monday, all the charges against Matakovich were dropped.

According to the police, Matakovich was working security outside of the Heinz Field Stadium on November 28, 2015, when he arrested Gabriel Despree on a number of charges, including public drunkenness and aggravated assault.

The entire encounter was captured on surveillance footage. As the video begins, it shows security officers appear to be asking Despree to leave. As he turns to leave and obey their request, Matakovich and several of his fellow officers stop him in an obvious move to bully this teen.

Once police obtained the surveillance video of the incident, showing Matakovich, entirely unprovoked, attack Despree, throw him to the ground and punch him several times, the officer was charged with simple assault and official oppression.

But, thanks to a clearly biased judge, Matakovich, who’s been on paid vacation for nearly two months, will now return back to the streets to ‘officially oppress’ once again.

The excuses used by the defense to convince the court to throw out the charges were nothing short of laughable.

“The video, it says a lot, but when you have an opportunity to break it down and listen to Sgt. Matakovich, his reasoning it makes total sense. The young man is going in and out of his pockets he was asked to leave his BAC was very high he admitted on the stand today he was very intoxicated,” said defense attorney Blaise Jones.

Somehow, the court found that the 19-year-old Despree, who was no threat to anyone and was trying to leave, was the ‘aggressor,’ and there was not enough evidence to hold the charges against the violent officer.

In a courtroom full of his fellow officers, applause exploded after the judge bought Matakovich’s claims that he feared for his safety.

“I don’t think it’s unusual to say Sgt. Matakovich put his safety first, his and those around him,” Jones said.

Apparently, Matakovich, an armed, 200+ pound officer, surrounded by his other fellow 200+ pound officers, who are also armed, felt that a drunk teen half his size posed a threat to him. Or, at least, he thought that the court would buy his preposterous story, and he was right.

Still facing the entirely false charge of assault on an officer, Despree is due in court in March. Welcome to justice in the land of the free.

  • This VIDEO makes my blood boil, by clicking ‘like’ + commenting (even 1 word) + sharing.. It will help more people see this post! (y)

  • fire his ass AND chareges of brutality.

  • This is just going to get worse- it WILL come to the point where people will start to secure a meaningful form of justice against these sociopaths…

  • disgusting

  • Of course he’s the victim, he got caught. And the bystanders, too.

  • My response?…

  • Fat ass punk is what he is.

  • Pigs

  • He is a victim of his own stupidity!

  • FTP

  • FTP

  • ughh…I so fucking hate law enforcemnet!

  • Fuckin pigs

  • I think at that point is perfectly fine to defend yourself and kill the cop

  • Cop will probably get promoted as punishment .. like seems to be the usual practice

  • Creep!!

  • To be fair, that cop’s been a victim for his entire pathetic life.

  • He has to go,

  • Everyday we see one of these videos of out of control cops. EVERYDAY!! How many instances of police brutality aren’t caught on video? And how many times have we seen where fellow officers lie and cover up each other’s criminal actions, only to get ousted when a video or witness surfaces?

  • Acab

  • last i heard it wasn’t illegal to walk with your hands in your pockets. He was leaving a football game, he would have already been searched.. it should have been a factor in the judges decision

  • i hope that cop is murdered in cold blood and he suffers the piece of gutless shit

  • mofo

  • …..Until citizen retaliate : an Eye for an eye, a Life for a life !!!

  • How many innocent people have gone to jail for something like this? How many have that stigma following them around when they did nothing other than be in the wrong place at the right time.

  • why does this keep happening?

  • Victim my left bunion foot! This guys is a perverted bully.

  • And the police demand respect, Ya’ right!! I have a friend who used to be a judge, he stated that every time the police do something wrong like this, that when people are called and serve in a jury their judgement may be scuewed against the police because of their lack of respect for the police. Question: Can the police position within the community create respect for the law or damage it by their ill actions. They are there to SERVE the people and help them. they have a tough job as we all know, but they need to think of their actions also!!

  • bastards.

  • High on steroids and thick as 2 short planks. And we trust the yanks to govern the world !!!! They must have the worse police force of any nation.

  • Americans are looooooooooooosers

  • I think the victim deserves a couple of million dollars in compensation. Just to make these thick heads think twice.

  • If I was that kid I would if shot the cop with his own gun……self defence from that fat prick

  • Dude needs a fuck good ass whooping. Fucking pigs

  • All you Americans that comment on here condemning the cop must read 1000s like it. It worries me as a Brit that we read the posts and you do f all about it. If it happened here there would be massive repercussions and the cop would be fired..not promoted as seems to happen in your country. There’s enough of you to put it right. Stop the pricks taking steroids might help.

  • It’s getting to the point where the public will have to protect themselves against the people who are suppose to protect the public.

  • :poop: !!!
