VIDEO: Police Shoot Innocent Man in the Back, Leaving Him Paralyzed — Charge HIM with Assault

Fort Worth, TX — An innocent man was shot in the back by police, arrested, charged with assaulting THEM, is now paralyzed for the rest of his life — and police call this justice.

After David Collie watched the video of a Fort Worth police officer assault and arrest an innocent mother and her children who called police after her 7-year-old son was choked by a neighbor, he decided to release the video of his encounter with Fort Worth cops.

“Unfortunately, what we’ve seen from the Fort Worth police officer in that video is not an isolated incident. Many members of our community have been assaulted, handled roughly by Fort Worth police officers,” Collie’s attorney, Nate Washington said. “To be clear, we believe the vast majority of police officers are good and decent people.”

The terrifying video shows police officers pull up to Collie’s apartment complex, get out of their cruiser, and immediately shoot him in the back. One officer is seen holding a blinding flashlight on Collie while another ‘fears for his life’ and squeezes off a round, severing Collie’s spine.

Police were looking for two armed men that night, who allegedly robbed someone they met online to purchase an item. However, Collie did not fit the description, notes his attorney.

According to police, Collie walked away from them and refused their commands to put his hands up. Officers then claim that Collie pulled out a silver box cutter and pointed it at them. Fearing for his life, the Fort Worth police officer shot him in the lower torso, according to the Fort Worth statement.

The video does not show a box cutter.

While Washington agrees that there was a box cutter discovered on the scene — over ten feet from where Collie was shot — he says the police account of Collie threatening cops with it, is fictitious. And, the video backs him up.

When speaking of the video, “I wasn’t there that night. I do know what I saw. I know I never saw this man with a weapon. I never saw this man advance toward the officers. I know I saw him get shot in his back.”

Collie would spend the next two months chained to a hospital bed fighting for his life after police arrested and charged him with aggravated assault on a public servant. When a grand jury heard his case and watched the video, they refused to indict him.

Since the shooting, which happened in July, police haven’t released any of the records on a potential investigation of the officers involved and have kept Collie and his attorney in the dark.

“The process that they ask us to trust is essentially, ‘Let us do what we want to do, we will not be transparent at all, and then we’ll tell you what we concluded,'” Washington said of the police response to an innocent man being paralyzed for the rest of his life after cops wrongly shot him in the back.

“There are conflicting reports in the different city police reports they have written, they have various different narratives and they’re inconsistent,” Washington said.

Collie has yet to file a lawsuit against the Fort Worth police department, but Washington noted they are considering one. He also noted that after they released this video, others began to come forward.

“We’ve gotten calls from attorneys across the city, who said, ‘I have videos as well, I have photographs of what happened to my client,’ and so we’re investigating the culture and the practice of the City of Fort Worth,” Washington said.

“We want justice for David. We want change,” Washington stated, adding, “but we also want peace and calm from the community after they see this video.”

For the rest of his life, David Collie will be in a wheelchair. And, he will have to live with the fact that people who claim to ‘protect society’ put him there.

  • While it is absurd that you have to do so, it is best to just follow orders given by police, this guy didn’t do that and the result is he is paralyzed for life. I am not defending what the officers did, they were wrong, but if he had just followed their orders this would not have happened either.

    • The Cat’s Vagina

      Did you video come with sound, because I didn’t hear them order him to do shit.

    • Phillip Textor

      Except they had no legal authority to be detaining him, much less ordering him to remove his hands or shoot at him. That point needs to be a legal issue and it isn’t, it is a civil issue and the cops have immunity from civil liability due to “qualified immunity.”

      • Yes, the cops should be prosecuted, agree fully, but the Oligarchy will never allow that, they are their strongmen and they can’t be having them be sent off to jail when that exact attitude is just what the Oligarchy will need in case of some peasant uprising.

        The guy still could have saved himself a life of disability had he followed their illegal orders.

        I don’t think that will make him feel any better, I hate bad cops and I agree with the globalist luver on this one–
        If you value your ability to walk and talk stfu when a cop is talking and do what they say and pretend to respect
        the asshole, could be the difference between life and death when dealing with a killer who has a taste for killing

          The Roman may be wrong but he’s the one with wooden beams, a hammer and spikes. Sometimes you have to give up your rights temporarily to stay alive. Which is the textbook definition of tyranny.

  • Phillip Textor

    The definition of “reasonable suspicion” and “probable cause” need to be reevaluated. An anonymous call of a person with a gun is treated as absolutely true and accurate by officers. Then when they get to the scene ANYONE they encounter is a suspect or a threat. the justification of a shooting is based on what an officer knows at the time of the shooting. In too many cases what the officer DOESN”T know is never considered. This lack of information creates “fear” in the mind of the officer and allows them to use deadly force, even if the information they DIDN”T have doesn’t justify the use of force. A lack of a description doesn’t mean anyone they encounter is a suspect. It means the officer doesn’t have enough information to stop ANYONE. This lack of information should mean the officer should not use any type of force, or detain anyone until they have more information. Police officials claim this would put officers at risk. Tell that to the dozens of people shot because officers are allowed to claim “wouldn’t obey officer commands” and ‘refused to remove hands from pockets” even though they have nothing more than a vague report, or vague suspicion that something is going on. If an officer does’t have RS OR PC then any shooting by them should be considered a crime. Since they did not have any right to use force in the first place.

    But no, the civil law they are breaking does not mean that they are breaking a “criminal” law. Even if the fear was not based on any RS or PS they claim of “being in fear of my life” is allowed to be used to excuse an officer’s illegal acts.

    A call of a “black man” showing a gun means that cops can stop ANY black man in the area. That is the rationale they use to detain someone. Even if the detention is ruled illegal NOTHING happens to the cops who violated the person’s rights. Officers know that even if they violated the law or policy, next to nothing with happen to them. The authority officers now use needs to be reigned in. Read the story of Dillon Taylor. The officers had no legal justification to stop the three men, much less approach with guns drawn and order the men to the ground. Yet, Taylor ends up dead the shooting ruled justified. Even though a cursory reading of supreme court rulings show they had no authority to stop the men at all.

  • Rogue cops cost us money

    The trigger happy pig is fucked in the head. He no reason to shoot the guy, period. This asshole should be charged with attempted murder.

    • T. Mohr

      Nah. That asshole should have ‘his’ spine severed and be stuck in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. That, would be justice.

  • billdeserthills

    Bad cops are such a bunch of scared wussies

  • Ed

    All Cops can’t keep saying they “Feared for their Life” to justify shooting someone. We must let a jury of their peers decide in each and every case, the prosecutors will have to work to Free a Cop! I can’t see how we let Prosecutors decide without a legal explanation!

  • Butch Taylor

    Knowing that there will never be any lawful accountability administered by the American system for victims such as David Collie and summarily others deliberately, illegally and inhumanely assaulted by government sanctioned mentally disturbed human robots also known as “cops”, the only resolve to any form of justice is that which is patiently, calculatingly and quietly exacted by the victims themselves and or their representing party. No matter how long it takes. If you get my drift.

  • Ibcamn

    cops are murderers and rapists period…this one just showed up and thought,yes,my kill to brag about is right here,i can just shoot this one and get the right to brag to my fellow gang members about……i think honestly this is what it is,considering when they murder someone,they take selfies and high five each other…
    im thinking cops just train this way too,to get the kill,to get them over that not to kill people,socialism deals with mass murder and im guessing obama and his henchmen had a plan that didn’t go to plan,and this is the result,cops just show up,kill you,burn the body and the next day comes…..these cops are all criminals,this is another video of thousands that show cops just murder someone for nothing,and then of course the corrupt courts will say it was justified….cops are worthless and most are fat obese retarded people,what type of person like that makes a good cop,they don’t,unless the gov’t has an agenda……cops are criminals,all cops
