bed

Boyes Hot Springs, CA — Only in police state USA could an argument over a husband failing to notice his wife’s haircut end with police tasering and severely beating a man as he lays in bed. That is exactly what happened to Marine Corps veteran Fernando Del Valle — and he’s got the video to prove it.

Although the incident occurred last September, the video was just released. It shows the horrifying nature of a problem cop who’s overly prone to violence.

On the night of September 24, Del Valle, 38, and his wife had some drinks and got into an argument after he failed to notice her haircut. The argument became heated but never once turned physical.

As Del Valle retreated into the bedroom and locked himself in, the couple’s screaming got the attention of the neighbors, who, in turn, called the police.

Just as the argument begins to calm down, cops burst into the couple’s home. Del Valle, who is trying to go to sleep in bed is then woken up by the sound of Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies breaking down his bedroom door.

Before the video begins, the deputies allegedly order Del Valle to stand up.

That’s when Del Valle turns on his camera and warns the deputies, “I got you on video. Go ahead. Tase me.”

Remember, Del Valle had committed no crime and had harmed no one. Yet, here he is with three armed men in his bedroom threatening to inflict bodily harm on him. And, within seconds, that just what Deputy Scott Thorne, 40, did.

“Sir, I’m just laying here trying to sleep and you’re …,” Del Valle said. “I’m not standing up. I’m in my house. I’m sleeping.”

As Thorne steps forward, he’s seen on the video aiming his taser at the bare chest of Del Valle who is wearing only gym shorts. He then fires.

When the taser hits him, Del Valle can be heard screaming. At this point, the baton comes out, according to Del Valle’s attorney, and Thorne begins laying into the defenseless man in his own bed.

“He’s not doing anything!” his wife screams as the deputy continously beats her husband over and over with his baton and taser.

The video then ends as Del Valle shouts repeatedly, “Call my lawyer!”

Del Valle was not able to record the entire encounter, but the beating continued well after it stopped.

According to the Press Democrat, a spokesman for Sheriff Steve Freitas could not comment on the cellphone video but agreed the deputies’ three videos raised concerns from the start about excessive force. After watching them, department brass immediately turned the case over to Santa Rosa police for criminal investigation, Sgt. Spencer Crum said.

“We acted very swiftly and Scott Thorne was no longer employed by us,” Crum said. “We are very concerned this is an excessive force case. We acknowledged it from Day One.”

As the Press Democrat revealed in their investigation, Thorne should’ve never been a cop as he’d been fired from previous jobs over his track record of excessive force.

However, none of that matters to Thorne’s attorney who is naturally defending the actions of this brutal cop.

“His position is he followed procedure,” Thorne’s lawyer Chris Andrian said, noting that he acted in accordance with his training.

As for Del Valle, after he was severely beaten by Thorne — for no reason — he was then arrested and brought to jail. However, once police attempted to charge him with something, they realized they had no evidence of him committing a crime, so he was let go.

Del Valle’s lawyer, Izaak Schwaiger, said, in all, Del Valle was tasered 2 to 3 times and suffered at least 15 baton blows, causing neurological damage and a separated shoulder.

Del Valle has since filed a lawsuit against the department, seeking damages above $25,000.

    “…seeking damages above $25,000.”

    I should fucking hope so! Apart from him being owed twice that (in my opinion) just for the pain and suffering he had to endure, part of the point of these lawsuits is to be punitive in nature, which means it’s supposed to financially SUCK enough to make the defendant think twice before doing this shit in the future.

    Since the money is coming out of a taxpayer pool, the settlement has to be HUGE enough to get the attention of the local media and thus, taxpayers. It’s up to the voting public to elect politicians that hold corrupt cops ACCOUNTABLE instead of kissing their fucking asses.

    • Zackknowitall

      I for sure wouldve killed this cop and his family for doing that to me as soon as I was released.

      • The Cat’s Vagina

        As eager as you seem to be to kill somebody, you might wanna stop mentioning it online every chance you get! 😉

        • Zackknowitall

          Eager lol. If you didn’t notice there is no mentioning of wanting to kill anyone. I was speaking in hypothetical past tense. Also I never feel the need to explain my hypothetical or hyperbole rants which are protected by the first amendment. In that comment the killing would have come after the 20 years in prison for the lie and false hood of attacking a cop. This guy got lucky 99% cops don’t get caught in their lies.

          • Domina Elle

            Your rants are NOT protected like you believe they are. It’s a game of Russian roulette. I have seen it go in all directions. I observed a case of a young white boy get into a lot of trouble for his posts online in a fight over a video game where he spoke about shooting up a kindergarten
            http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/02/tech/social-media/facebook-threat-carter/
            while a case of a black woman calling for people to kill police- she was charged but the charges were later dropped and all she had to do was apologize. https://www.google.com/amp/www.ajc.com/news/local/east-point-woman-who-threatened-kill-police-makes-public-apology/3rnMMTGtx7VhwKgEHnsMJM/amp.html

            Depends on what the popular narratives are doing, what you look like, and whether or not you fall into a ‘politically correct’ category it seems.

          • Zackknowitall

            The two cases you speak of are different one is a clear and too specific to be hyperbole. The other one is not a threat but inciting violence.

            A threat happens when a person threatens to commit a crime likely to result in serious bodily harm or death. So I say “im gonna smack you in the face” there is no threat.
            If I say “im gonnn run you over with my car” well that would be assault with a deadly weapon which is a crime and that’s a threat.

            Then there is hyperbole example I say “I’m gonna have my mother ship blow up your house” its to hypothetical to be a threat.

            Then there is speaking in pastense which a threat can not take place in. Example “I should have shot you last time I seen you” which is diffent from “I’ll shoot you next time I see you.

            Then there is asking a question to hide the threat which is not a threat as the person is not saying they will do anything example “how you you like to have your head cut off?”

            Then there is the hypothetical “if” statement example “if that would have been my wife that cop raped I would have killed him or if a cop rapes my wife I will kill him” both are hypothetical and are not threats.

            The SCOTUS recently ruled that a threat has to be intended as a threat. Which I’ll never make bc if I feel a way I won’t give anyone a chance to arrest me stopping me from a goal. Lucky for the ppl that have done me wrong that I’m non violent.

            Lastly I leave you with this an opinion can not be a threat as it is also hypothetical. Even if I was to say how I think I might react in a particular situation that’s not a threat.

    Fuck this.

  • Mike

    The cop needs to be charged with first degree assault and attempted murder, and thrown in prison, general population, lets see how tough he is then!

    I’ll bet this SS member was allowed to resign and had another SS job before the ink was even dry on the paperwork. Remember the old days when actual police officers came to your house, knocked on the door, talked to people getting everyones story so they could ascertain what had happened and made the logical conclusion no one was hurt and it was just an argument, told you next time not to argue so loudly and left, now they kick in your door and start slaughtering anything and everything that’s alive, adults, children, pets, it’s all good because no one holds them accountable for their crimes, I can’t imagine why most people hate and don’t trust them.

    When the government and its agents engage in such tyrannies, you are nothing but a slave. Watch the slave patrol teach a lesson beating a slave that dared not comply with their ‘orders’.

    Yet ANOTHER white privilege card expired. I thought his skin color was supposed to protect him from this abuse? Don’t they normally treat white folk like queens and kings? As if most whites aren’t wage slaves, as if whites don’t get profiled, as if whites get special treatment? He got ‘special’ treatment all right. I bet this family and every other white family that has been victimized by cops (a LOT and I can certainly speak for myself and the MANY other whites I personally know who have been abused by police and the establishment) don’t feel too ‘privileged’.

    The issues are far more complex than the white privilege narrative allows for. It minimizes the constant stream of abuses committed by the gov and it’s agents. That narrative only serves to derail the conversation on police abuses (making it another issue rather than hitting that nail square on it’s disgusting head) and will never lead to a sustainable and long term solution.

    Hopefully that narrative is cycling its way OUT.

    Don’t ask or tell a cop to kill you (unless your serious about being dead), don’t tell a cop to taze you (unless you are into electrical shock and I know a few masochists who are). They are all too happy to oblige.

  • Ibcamn

    the neighbor should be removed from their home and beaten,along side their criminal co-hearts in crime,the cops.
    if a cop cannot detaermine what is going on in a family desputed upon arriving,maybe those cops need to start looking for new jobs..as many times as i have gone to a friends home and he and his woman were fighting and screaming..never once did i not figfure it out and tell how far it would or will go….cops are criminals…the new homegrown terrorists….

    “His position is he followed procedure,” said his lawyer. It’s amazing how procedure circumvents the law.

  • Face facts. The STATE (well, they people calling themselves the STATE) believes it is your abusive father Daddy. It’s called parens patriae. They make you do what you want with violence. They take your kids (their kids in their mind).
    The odd part? They have no duty to protect you. All the down sides of sovereignty without the good parts.

    I AM ASHAMED TO SAY I AM AN AMERICAN TAX PAYER PAYING FOR THIS KIND OF *PROTECTION?*, WOW. THIS IS IN NO WAY PROTECTION, IT IS BULLYING AT IT’S FINEST. THE RIGHT TO BARE ARMS MUST NEVER BE TAKEN AWAY FROM US AS CITIZENS, IF IT IS, THEN WE ALL WILL BECOME VICTIMS JUST LIKE THIS MAN WAS. I PERSONALLY KNOW SOME REALLY GREAT MEN THAT ARE OR HAVE BEEN COPS, AND I ALSO KNOW SOME REALLY AND TRULY PIECES OF SHIT THAT WERE OR ARE COPS (BEAU FRAIZER OF ILLINOIS PATOKA >LOOK HIM UP<) IS ONLY 1 PIECE OF SHIT. IT IS SAD TO SEE THIS, VERY SAD INDEED.
