jaywalking

Del Paso Heights, CA — Walking across the street in a manner not fit for the police state can often end in serious injury or death — not necessarily because of a car running you over either. The enforcement of jaywalking laws in this country have gone to the extreme and a new video out of California shows just how extreme.

According to witnesses, and backed up by video, Nandi Cain Jr. was crossing the street when a Sacramento police officer approached him. As seen in the video, the pair exchanged some words just before the officer charged Cain and began choking him.

Cain never swung at the officer and it appears that he was merely defending himself from the officer’s onslaught. For a brief moment, the camera pans away as the people filming pull over. When it turns back to Cain, we see the officer waylaying the young man.

Naomi Montaie was the one who filmed the abuse and said she posted it to Facebook because she felt everything she saw was wrong.

“I never witnessed anything like that. He just kept hitting him and kept hitting him, and I was like ‘oh my God…why you hitting him like that? Why you hitting him like that? You need to stop hitting him.’ And he kept hitting him,” she said with tears streaming down her face, according to FOX 40.

Montaie is so close to Cain that she calls him her nephew. She explained to FOX 40 that after they beat him down, police told her they were attempting to stop Cain for jaywalking.

Naturally, Montaie, like most people who will watch the video below, is wondering how on earth a jaywalking citation could’ve ended up like this. Cain’s live-in girlfriend wants to know the answer to that question as well.

“I just want some answers. What happened?” said Cain’s live-in girlfriend Antoinette Stewart.

As FOX 40 reports:

She says she fell in love with his goofy, spirited personality two years ago and can’t imagine why something like this would happen.

 

She can imagine him cutting across a street in his long walk home from his co-manager job at a TV store, but as far as her knowledge of him breaking any laws?

But, as the Free Thought Project has reported numerous times, walking across the street improperly — even if there is zero traffic — can and will end in violence and/or kidnapping. 

According to Stewart, Cain’s never been to jail. However, because he crossed the street in front of the wrong cop, all that could be about to change.

The Sacramento police have refused to release any details in regards to this incident, noting only that an officer stopped a man for a violation at Cypress and Grand.

As FOX 40 reports:

They couldn’t detail what kind of offense was committed or confirm Cain’s identity.

 

Spokesmen also couldn’t say if there were body cam or dash cam recordings of the arrest.

 

FOX40 sent the department Montaie’s video and supervisors are reviewing it.

“Any human being don’t deserve that. Nobody deserves that,” Stewart said.

Below is a video of what can and will happen to you for crossing the street the wrong way.

    maybe you have not read my stuff. i said most of the time the cop is wrong like the guy who kicked his head. but littering and jaywalking are contemptible actions. in other words the people doing it are showing contempt for society by doing it. well there is just too much of that. that man put his life at risk to walk in the street when he did not need to.

  • Dianne Russell

    Maybe he didn’t want to be another Philando Castile, and be killed for carrying a legal firearm. I’d bet he took off that jacket to show he wasn’t carrying a weapon, so the cop couldn’t say he ‘reached for his waistband’, code phrase for “I thought I was being threatened by that scary black person”. Police need to be subject to proper vetting, and regular psychological testing.

  • Dianne Russell

    But who ever heard of being arrested or even aggressively stopped for JAYWALKING? I’ve heard of being given a ticket for jaywalking, but only in the heavily trafficked cities, not in a suburban area like that.

  • Keith Humphries

    Just wish to say you never get the full story with these posts. Got stopped by a cop for so called Jaywalking in Las Vegas on holiday. Crossed a pedestrian crossing with the red hand by mistake. The copper was courteous and told me to “Stay Safe” They have a job to do like anyone else. As long as you are polite they will treat you with respect. United Kingdom

    • Daniel Michael Lynem Sr.

      Wishful thinking Keith. Or rather blind thinking. All “You” may have to do is be polite, but then, have you grown up black, where your community is patrolled by an all white police force? I have and there were many times I was polite, cooperative and respectful but still got abused, called nigger, and arrested on trumped up charges, even had drugs planted on me. That’s what being polite got me.

  • Lisa Murphy

    This is nuts! How many cops does it take arrest jaywalker? A non violent crime mind you! Plus who the hell has ever been arrested for j walking? I thought if anything was a ticketable offence? And is where r tax dollars go?? Terrible!

  • Rickymac McManus

    Many black kids walk right off the curb not even looking behind them to see if a car is coming. I KNOW MAN, WHITE BOYS WOULD NEVER DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD THEY ASSHOLE…..AND I AM WHITE DICKHEAD…

  • proctologsOfZion

    Taking it a bit to the extreme, are we?

  • dsimmons

    This government is just as wrong as these cops. Why are these bully racist gang cops allowed to keep getting away ith brutalizing black people. It’s because this corrupt racist government has given them the green light to do so. That’s why cops feel so comfortable nd entitled to doing this whenever they feel like it. Unite black people lets form our own neighborhood for defense patrol unit to stop all this police brutality in your community.

  • Del Wilkins

    yep….he did not make any aggressive action toward the police…..the cop probably wanted hI’m to show him he wasn’t carrying a gun..so he took off his coat

    • Getty Love

      Not defending the cop’s actions. Not in the least. He obviously over reacted. It’s unclear to me whether he took his jacket off because he was asked to or he did it without being asked to show the cop he was not armed. I heard a report it was the latter. But the cop created the confrontation even if you might want to argue that he took an aggressive fighting stance. This man posed no danger to the police officer. He (police) is just a macho thrill seeking junkie. He could have just as easily calmly talked to this man, asked him to get out of the street for one thing.

      And it wasn’t long after this news hitting the airwaves that the Sacramento Police Dept. issued a statement stating that this officers actions don’t reflect on the entire police force, blah, blah, blah. Maybe on the advice of their lawyers but they were in damage control mode for sure. They weren’t defending this officers actions.

      I like what a poster on another thread said
      about this incident. He said we can’t know for sure if this cop is a bigot or racist based on this one video but for sure he is a hot-head in need of further training.

  • Joe_Buddha

    Not only DOESN’T he fight back, but the cop keeps fucking punching him long after he got control. You’re a fucking asshole.

  • TrueFreeThinker

    Some context (because it’ll never be found on sites like these) of what happened before the video, and the aftermath of what happened to the officer: https://www.newsreview.com/sacramento/fighting-for-change-sacramento-police/content?oid=24092725

    Also, as a Sacramento resident, I can tell you that police are on edge in Del Paso because it really is one of the worst parts of the city. Not excusing the cop, merely giving reasons in a truly objective manner. As a real intellectual would.

    • Daniel Michael Lynem Sr.

      Thanks for posting the news review. I think the police department did the right thing. We’ll wait to see where the investigation goes. Now, from one “real intellectual” to another. Question, what’s your point in mentioning the condition of Del Paso, then saying, “not excusing the cop”.. ? Unless you were giving the cop the benefit of the doubt, or a reason/excuse for his behavior? So what if Del Paso is the worst part of the city and cop’s are on edge, what are you implying? What say you?

  • Daniel Michael Lynem Sr.

    Have you considered applying to be a cop? You sure have the right attitude, mindset, and outlook. Oh, and I feel for your son..

  • Daniel Michael Lynem Sr.

    So, white kids never step off curb’s, or skateboard on sidewalks or in the street, in a disrespectful manner, or have a bad attitude or think their cool doing it?

  • Daniel Michael Lynem Sr.

    I’m not so sure about that. I believe it’s about power and control. There is definitely a disrespect for the Constitution and the rule of law. These cop’s (some) being hired today are psychopaths, power hungry and seek to be cop’s so they can abuse and kill people. And if you think race doesn’t play a part, check this FBI 2015 report: https://static.theintercept.com/amp/the-fbi-has-quietly-investigated-white-supremacist-infiltration-of-law-enforcement.html

    No centralized recruitment process or set of national standards exists for the 18,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States, many of which have deep historical connections to racist ideologies.

  • Researching this incident, I learned the Sacramento PD posted on DropBox three dash cam vids with audio that recorded Nandi Caine Jr. clearly advising the police, “I’m ready to die.” “You can shoot me in my head right now, I’m tired of living, I’m tired of living, I’m tired of living.”

    Based on his suicidal statements to police I have every reason to believe Mr. Cain is an emotionally ill American man who regularly experienced America’s National HEALTH CRISIS, aka America’s Culture of African American Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect and Maltreatment that evolved from America’s long-standing, multi-generational, ignorant Culture of Racism!

    I am referring to a Culture of Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect, Abandonment and Maltreatment responsible for popular American urban story-TRUTH-tellers the late Tupac Shakur (born 1971) and repeat Barack “My Brother’s Keeper” Obama White House guest Kendrick Lamar (born 1987) vividly describing in their American art and interviews the “T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E.” and “m.A.A.d. City” Child Abuse Cultures that through no fault of their own, deprived these American men, their childhood friends, as well as many of their elementary and JHS classmates from experiencing a SAFE, fairly or wonderfully happy American kid childhood.

    Sadly the Criminal Child Abuse and Emotional Abandonment each of these men speaks about experiencing during a critical period of human/childhood development resulted with them maturing into emotionally ill adults revealing in public they’ve been experiencing acute depression as well as Suicidal Thoughts for most of their lives.

    The same Culture of African American Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment responsible for inspiring significant numbers of popular American music performers and urban story-truth-tellers, for more than 30 years, to compose and perform popular American music art informing American society as well as our neighbors worldwide that American teen girls and women, aka the MATERNAL HALF of our population, should be viewed and treated as less than human *itches & *hores or ‘hoes’ unworthy of basic human respect.

    Peace.

      I do agree that a lot of times we don’t get the full story. However, even if it’s on tape that this man is expressing desperation & showing signs of not cooperating I still think the cop over reacted. Did he at any point ask this man to get on his knees, turn around, hands behind your head, any of these commands? That would be on the tape also, I would think. And when you get attacked like that just what is “not resisting.” Yeah, not resisting. What are you supposed to do? If you’re clear thinking enough you might think to put your hands on your head or drop to your knees. Once the attack has begun you are most likely well into flight or fight & may be experiencing shock.

  • whoknows

    i dont get t hat response? is she a violent cop ?

  • Susann Codish

    “Below is a video of what can and will happen to you for crossing the street the wrong way.” It wouldn’t happen to me, a middle-aged white woman. Only if you’re a minority. It helps to be young and male, but is not a requirement. God help us.

  • Getty Love

    Some cops will interpret mouthing off as resisting. Not trying to be funny here. Anything less than them perceiving full cooperation & they perceive it as resisting. I’ve seen enough of these videos to know that that is many cop’s attitude. Power & control. (Many) cop’s view is that they should have all power & control in these situations.
    And for sure, they do have all the power in these situations. Even with body cams & people filming it.

    A few years back I was pulled over while driving through Tennessee for…wait for it…a license plate holder that obscured the full state name of my license plate. Cop tells me there’s a law that your state license plate should be fully visible, must be able to be seen within a certain number of feet, etc. & it’s a $125 fine. So I’m pulled over on the interstate, in Rutherford County Tennessee, unmarked Chevy Tahoe & this cop is chatting me up, playing police officer I guess but I’m getting this nagging feeling that this is turning into something a little more than a license plate holder that is obscuring my state’s name. After a little chit chat, where you coming from, where you headed, what kind of work do you do, that kind of cop BS…nothing at all to do with a license plate holder that is obscuring my state’s (license) name…he says to me “do you mind if I search your car?” Well I wanted to say, why yes, I do mind & what the fuck does this have to do with a obscured license plate? But I think better of this & instead, having watched many a cop show on TV hit him with “What’s your probable cause?” He seems a bit momentarily startled by this response. He then goes into fast talking cop mode & gives me some kind of veiled threat as to if he had probable cause I would be in jail already. Typical cop’s abuse of being in power & controlling the situation. So I’m starting to stress out at this point & also trying to think straight & also hoping I don’t tell this cop what I really think of his roadside dog & pony show. (Yep, complete with dog, not sure what happened to the pony.) I’m thinking well, if I refuse I will for sure get the citation for the license plate holder & I may wind up in jail while they get a search warrant. So I tell the cop yeah, do your thing but you’re not going to find anything. So 2 more unmarked Chevy Tahoes show up complete with a drug sniffing dog. So the cop tells me, most likely lies to me, if the dog gives us a positive then we have to search the vehicle. Most likely lied…no he lied, they were going to search my vehicle no matter what the dog signaled to them. That’s the dog part of the dog & pony show. So after they don’t find anything, after searching me, running my drivers license the a-hole cop says to me “well you must have been parked next to a car that had drugs in it.” Yeah right. Bullshit.
    But did I ever veer far from ‘yes sir, no sir mode.’ Not very far. Other than bringing up probable cause & after it was clear he was going to let me go with just a warning citation for the license plate holder, I told him that I thought this was just harassment. He denied it of course. Other than that I didn’t dare show signs of not cooperating. The police officer makes all the rules & holds all the power in those situations.

    Can we stop whitewashing police brutality, please? While everybody’s potentially affected by issues such as this, black people are still by far the most disproportionately affected.

    • palvadore

      You obviously didnt read any of my prior post or you would see I’m no friend of crooked cops!
      But you missed my point. Racist are in every government and in every society. The “whitewashing” is when people pretend it’s more about white people hating “EVERYBODY”. The problem is a failure of ALL the people to demand a Constitutional government and a Constitutional police community. As it is, no one adheres to the boundaries enumerated in the Constitution.

      • Alejandro Asín

        I don’t have to see any of your other posts and I never claimed you were defending corrupt officers.

        You clearly tried to negate Daniel’s point that this was racial profiling by saying that all people are affected by police brutality, when the cold hard fact is that not everybody is treated this way equally. While white people do suffer from police brutality, black men are FAR more likely to suffer from it for either smaller infractions or for doing nothing wrong.

        • palvadore

          There’s a reason for blacks being disproportionately targeted and it isn’t all because of the color of their skin fuck tard! Whites are targeted too and if you say otherwise your a liar.
          You’re probably one of those white assholes thinking he’s just chastised another white asshole!

    If you are threatened by that, you must have some serious issues. I saw nothing threatening whatsoever. It appeared he removed his coat by officer’s request, clearly to show he was unarmed. No provocation whatsoever! I suppose you also found it threatening that he didn’t even try to defend himself when the cop threw him around like a sack of potatoes, too, right? Gosh that must have been terrifying the we flailed about helplessly while the cop pummeled his head into the pavement.
