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.

Advertisment

“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?

    • Zipper666

      No, it’s a fair warning. When those in power continue to be unpunished for their criminal behavior eventually those being oppressed will rise up.
      Thanks to the dumb gun laws there are now more firearms than people in the USA.
      We saw some vigilante justice last year when a black vet opened fire on cops, killing two and injuring others.
      The police represent “power”, when they continually abuse that power there WILL be pushback.

      Look at the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, or the Palestinians in Israel. Outnumbered and outgunned and with no hope in sight the don’t give up, they fight. And unless there’s a huge change in policing (highly unlikely under this “law and order” orange clown) we will see police all over the country with a target on their back.

  • 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.

    • Camille Lourde

      So he commenced to try and kill him?

      • Hi, Camille. Your reply suggests you do not understand the difference between physical force and deadly physical force.

        Peace.

        • Camille Lourde

          DO I NEED TO???????? He could have killed him. Neither is ok. They are the same in my book. VIOLENCE IS VIOLENCE. How do you know his heart didn’t want him dead?

  • 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.

    • Giggidy12344

      Oh good, another white knight here to tell us about our “white privilege”. Susann Codish you must have a mental disorder. Look at FBI crime stats. Man your type pisses me off. Make blanket statements about how white males have it sooooo much easier than minorities and women. You probably think the wage gap is a real thing too, don’t you. Have you ever stopped and thought, “hmmm maybe if minorities stopped committing a majority of the violent crimes they wouldn’t be targeted as much?” Probably not because you are a DemLib retard who couldn’t find their way out of a wet paper bag. Good luck in life moron.

      • seanmartin

        Oh poor Gidget…. truth hurt, sweetie?

        • Giggidy12344

          To what truth are you referring to? The fact that minorities have a tendency to be violent? That blacks account for 13% of the population but are responsible for over 45% of the violent crimes? Or how about the truth that blacks are over 35% of the incarcerated persons in the US despite being a small segment of the entire population. Or the truth that you’re a Canadian puss-bag? Yes, the truth does hurt doesn’t it.

          • seanmartin

            Yeah, yeah, Gidget, the same tired (and long-refuted) talking points conservatives have been trotting out since they lost the Civil War. Minorities “have a tendency to be violent”? SERIOUSLY, dude? Looking at the action of the cop in that video — you know, the guy who didnt even *try* to be reasonable about something this stupid — I would wonder just who the “violent” one really is. Blacks “responsible for 45% of the violent crimes”? Considering the number of times we’ve all read stories about Rich Whitey getting a pass — even for murder — that’s more like under-reporting than actual comparison.

            And dude, remember: in 1812, your White House cooked our marshmellows. When you grow up, Muhrikuhn, let me know.

            To quote the old movie, apparently you really cant handle the truth, can you.

          • Giggidy12344

            Yeah yeah facts don’t agree with your social justice warrior path so you disregard them. Too bad facts don’t give a f*** about your feelings :-). Also, not really sure why you bring up the burning of Washington. Remember we f***ed the British, the Spanish and the Mexicans out of OUR country.

            To quote another movie – “You’re a f***ing disgrace”

  • 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.

  • Alejandro Asín

    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!

        You don’t have the sound track, my money’s on the fact that he told the officer a few “things” using profanity and more than likely started debating the issue of who’s wrong and who’s right – if you debate the law on site you live with the consequences!

        • singingsoprano

          Elijah, being “mouthy” does not justify assault by cop… Also your bias is showing.

        • stmccrea

          So it’s OK for police to tackle a person who uses profanity? Where is that covered in the Bill of Rights? I believe we still have the right of free speech, though I’m not sure how much longer we’ll have it with authoritarians like you OKing the police to do anything they want if you don’t do exactly as they tell you and smile while doing so.

        • hatch99

          Did you consider this a reasonable use of force? Why aren’t cops beating the sh*t out of white people cross the street?

          • Giggidy12344

            hatch99 open your eye’s. White people are beaten/shot by police all the time, the main stream media just doesn’t report on it as much. Look at the black riots where white people were being targeted for being white. When it’s a black officer beating or shooting a white person you don’t see riots, protests and all that other sh*t that black people do. The media gets better ratings by publicizing black “victims” because they know the black community and the SJW’s can’t control their anger(they aren’t evolved to that point yet). Which means they will riot and burn their cities down, which in turns means more news coverage and better ratings. I said before I think the officer went a tad over board but you don’t know what was said or done prior to that. People need to stop jumping to conclusions and wait for all the info to get out.

          • hatch99

            Open your eyes to the world of statistics. The percent of white vs the percent of blacks subject to police violent is widely different.

            You have to bring up RIOTS whereas this guy just was crossing the street. Note also that MOST — statistics again — cop killers are white.

          • Giggidy12344

            My eyes are open but apparently yours are closed. If you look at any given year the difference in number of cops killed by blacks, whites and hispanics is very small. Some years whites kill more, sometimes blacks kill more. Over the past decade the races are about even as far as who the cop killer was. Where they differ however, is in the number of officers killed by the individual. If you look at 2016 alone, 2 black men killed 8 police officers within a week. Many analysts have pointed to the anti-cop rhetoric that has been plaguing our country the past several years. Guess who has been pushing that narrative….BLM!

            Now lets look at studies done in simulated testing with police officers. Those studies found that police were 24% less likely to shoot a black man in city X, and 45% less likely in city Y. Studies have also found that police are 20 times more likely to be killed by a black person than a black person getting killed by a cop.

            I bring up riots because it has a direct impact on what we are talking about. It shows that minorities (as a collective) cannot control their anger. This makes them more prone to involvement with the police. Whites interact with police more than any other race. You cannot deny the fact that blacks make up a very small percentage of the population but are almost half the violent crime stats and persons incarcerated. Facts, laid out for your viewing pleasure.

          • Jonathan Schreiber

            Just because you say something doesn’t make it fact, or a statistic, I haven’t seen anyone posting links to ANY KIND of legitimate statistics. Your memory doesn’t count, post some actual data from a reputable source.

          • Giggidy12344

            I can’t go through and post 45 links. Seriously, that is the number of documents, articles, studies etc that I have gone through on issues like this. Also, my step-father is a criminology professor so I am able to get a lot of details from books and classes he teaches. Also, why is it my responsibility to do the work for people? I’ve done my research, others should be compelled to do the same.

          • Giggidy12344

            Jonathan Schreiber I would have to go to 20+ different sources and post all of their data here. If people want to verify what I am saying they can do the research for themselves. I am not here to spoon feed people the information. It is way more effective if people do the research for themselves. I completely get your point on posting the sources but like I have said in previous postings I go through multiple sources and cross reference their findings to make an educated statement. Much of what I am seeing in this thread is a lot of feelings and opinions, most of them very racist towards anyone who challenges the social justice view of this situation.

            FACTS.
            According to the most recent census data, there are nearly 160 million more white people in America than there are black people. White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13 percent of the U.S. population. As The Post noted in a new analysis published last week, that means black Americans are 2.5 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers.
            U.S. police officers have shot and killed the exact same number of unarmed white people as they have unarmed black people: 50 each. But because the white population is approximately five times larger than the black population, that means unarmed black Americans were five times as likely as unarmed white Americans to be shot and killed by a police officer.

            [Unarmed and black: Police are still killing unarmed black men at higher rates than whites]

            Police have shot and killed a young black man (ages 18 to 29) — such as Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. —175 times since January 2015; 24 of them were unarmed. Over that same period, police have shot and killed 172 young white men, 18 of whom were unarmed. Once again, while in raw numbers there were similar totals of white and black victims, blacks were killed at rates disproportionate to their percentage of the U.S. population. Of all of the unarmed people shot and killed by police in 2015, 40 percent of them were black men, even though black men make up just 6 percent of the nation’s population.

            Fact that Post, NYT, CNN and others have been found to produce false information to support their narrative. You must look at multiple sources to get your figures correct. FBI crime stats, the AP are just a few that have decent stats and figures on crime, but again it is important to look at multiple sources to get figures correct. Michael Brown was a criminal so I’m not sure that is the best case to use for your argument. The fact remains that the black community is inherently more violent than any other community in the country.

          • spreadLOVE

          • Gregory Reynolds

            Actually that would also be a lie. Over the last 10 years the number of cops killed by blacks and whites has shown a consistent 25% to 75% ratio with whites killing more cops then blacks. There can’t be studies that show that a cop is more likely to be killed by a black person then a white person when the FBI stats say that 75% of the cops killed have been killed by whites. How about we take a look at who is doing those reports that say other. Now you say that whites interact with police more than any other race but what you didn’t say is that even with that being true cops are more likely to arrest blacks than whites and studies show that to be true. What they have also shown is that the percentage of whites doing crimes is greater when police officers used stop and frisk targeting people of color or when they stopped and frisked a white person. But you didn’t lay out your facts and your sources. All one has to do is go to the FBI stats on crime and it shows that 76% of all Crime is committed by whites.

          • Dan Stacks

            Do you have any proof of this?? Or did you get that narrative from a headline and somebody recording 2 seconds befor the actual incident took place?

          • Dan Stacks

            You forgot one statistic. What you say is true but remember. Black people are minority. So they’re roughly 65% less of the population. Meanikng in EVERY category they should statistically be behind about 65-70% but they’re not. They’re usually winning in violent crime and dominating.in gun violence especially seing balck males between 20 and 27 commit over 50% of the ENTIRE COUNTRIES violent crimes. . Statistically police have a reason to be more on edge with black males. Because statistically were all about 65-70% more likely to get killed by them than anybody else on the planet. Lool the numbers up yourself. These are facts

            And btw. White males get assaulted and killed by police WAY more than anybody else too. But the news don’t want anybody to know that. Martial law is the end game and well….. White america ain’t falling for it.

            PS. Arabs and Hispanics were responsible for over 75% of African slavory. Americans about 11% and white people alomgnwith Quakers ended slavory (except in africa and asia and the middle east whwre it still exist to this day) why the fuck aren’t they directing their anger there?? Why is it always the white man?? Think about it.

            Oh Spread, You don’t get to respond to an issue the way you have, talk the way you talk, and then claim to speak for the Black or any other community. You cannot represent the entire Black community because there are so many decent Black people who do not use that language and do not call other people names to make a point. You speak not for race but for the uneducated inarticulate, mean-spirited small folks of many cultures. It’s almost like you want to fuel the stereotypes. Do some good.

            Why does anything need to be expressed in a racist manner? That’s why people get disrespected, that’s why we as black people go off. You don’t know how to talk without being ignorant you get what you receive. Those days of the nice obedient kind black person are long gone, majority of the comments on here are disrespectful and rude but the second a black person replies in the same manner they’re wrong?

          • Sandra Bell

            Dan, Speech is allowed, even if it is mean, stupid, racist, etc. It’s when physical assault happens that it all changes. We do NOT have the right to touch another person’s body. That becomes assault. It doesn’t matter who instigates it — white people or people of color. That’s what’s so great about our American rights. We get to be safe from physical harm from others. There are scores of good police officers and there are pockets of ignorant, corrupt bullies who take advantage and unfair liberties with their badges, fists and guns. That’s what is at issue here.

            The few hundred should be stopped by the other 1.5 million but what are they doing? Standing by watching silently. If I see a friend, family member or even a stranger doing wrong im going to stand up and say something, yet these cops will stand by and let this injustice happen and not speak up.

Why are people say oh my God, Jesus stop that your going to kill that white boy.

          • stmccrea

            This is not a black person being assaulted “by whites.” This is a POLICE OFFICER ASSAULTING A CITIZEN! Are you too dim to get the difference? And if you’re suggesting that black people gang up on white people more than the other way around, you really are delusional.

          • stmccrea

            I lived in West Philadelphia for two years. I used to ride my bike through one of the poorest black ghettoes in West Philly three days a week to get to my college classes. I used to take the bus out to 52nd Avenue and change busses. I was the only white person there every single time. No one ever bothered me. I also rode my bike from Washington DC to Philly and drove right through the worst ghetto in Baltimore. People were impressed and made friendly conversation with me. I left my bike outside a McDonald’s and no one touched it.

            Guess your guarantee is totally wrong. I’m assuming your other “facts” have just about as much basis in reality, Dan.

          • Sandra Bell

            Maybe something unfortunate happened to you at some point during your life, in which case I’m surely sorry, or perhaps your parents drilled bigotry into your head. The only way to heal it is to take a more loving, healing stance. Let’s all acknowledge that unfair attacks, fueled by anger and estrangement happen across the board. Fueling the fire does not help. Let’s just admit that there are rogue cops out there whose main purpose is not to “Protect & Serve”, but to break heads — heads of any color, but more often dark ones. I salute cops of integrity who have the skills and desire to de-escalate problems when possible.

          • Dan Stacks

            Or maybe I’m just not a brainwashed racist like you. Maybe I am independent and don’t follow trends like you. You know know shit about my parents but I assume yours didn’t teach you shit but instead sat You in front of a TV and let the “programs ” raise you. Makes sense. I’m n ot programmed or programmable. You suffer from a serious mental disoreder and need to seek immediate help. It’s called conditioned hatred and you’re oblivious to it. Bigot?? Kinda like assuming because a cop arrested somebody with force that automatically means he’s a racist or assume because of CNN That black people are assaulted more than white people even tho If you ever researched real statistics you would see that it’s not even close white people are abused and murdered by police way more than any other race on the planet. The only people police judge are criminals for obvious reasons. A couple bad seeds yes. But you’re delusional in your moronic assumptions and extremely false information.

I don’t know how I can be any more clear, so if you don’t comprehend what I’m saying, I give up. BTW, I didn’t have TV to “raise” me as a child.

The term “your” city is a common expression when you talk about a city or area predominantly black, white, brown etc. In no way was I insinuating that blacks live in a different America than whites. I will infer however that for the most part blacks and whites have a different sense of what America is.

            It doesn’t matter what was said. The victim could have called the cop any name he wanted, which he probably didn’t. Some cops are loose cannons with huge egos, and they respond like low life if anyone with less power questions them or speaks to them disrespectfully.

          • Gregory Reynolds

            Actually Blacks don’t burn down cities when they riot. They might burn down a building or 2 but what they don’t do is burn down whole neighborhoods and kill as white people have a history of doing. Blacks don’t riot and target whites either but white people have rioted and targeted blacks and murdered them. So you think that the media doesn’t show whites as victims? Thats because most of the time you aren’t the victim but the perpetrator. Now I love the fact that you use that white privilege stance of “you don’t know what was said or done prior to that”. It’s simple in this case considering that it doesn’t matter what was said and it was clear that nothing he had done was a threat to the officer or anyone. How do we know that? Because the officer initiated the actions while the young man stood there and he didn’t resist as he was being flung to the ground.

            Remember that you all made the same statement about Philando Castile and his girlfriends video, “you don’t know what happened before she started video taping”. Well as the video from the police shows apparently nothing but him complying and being courteous before he was gunned down by a police officer that according to his own statements had a preconceived thoughts about the person and his intent and acted on those fears.

          • Giggidy12344

            Your the one avoiding real data.

            “According to the most recent census data, there are nearly 160 million more white people in America than there are black people. White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13 percent of the U.S. population. As The Post noted in a new analysis published last week, that means black Americans are 2.5 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers.”

      Duke apparently people have forgotten the statistics. Whites are killed by police more than blacks. Blacks commit over 45% of the violent crimes even though they make up less than 13% of the population. Blacks account for over 35% of the incarcerated people in the US. Yup, all cops are completely racist/tyrannical. Or, maybe, just maybe, blacks and other minority groups are just plain violent in nature. Not one person here can say with 100% certainty that either party was in the wrong. The cop could have been wrong, the suspect could have been wrong. You don’t know if the guy threatened the cop or if the cop was just being an A-hole. Judging by the video alone, the guy took off his jacket in a universal gesture of “let’s throw down”. You can also see in some of the still frames, the suspects hand going towards the cops head with a closed fist. I think the cop was a little excessive, but still, no one knows what was being said or what happened prior to this, period.

      • Blueberry

        Also, black people or hispanic people, whatever, are not just inherently more violent than other people. It’s a product of the environment that they some are raised in, one that they didn’t choose to live in. Projects, ghettos, whatever you want to call any of them. Some of them, because their fathers and mothers couldn’t get a decent education. Others because, even with an education, couldn’t find a job because no one wants to hire them. This is a life they were forced into. Police treat them like criminals for almost any small infraction. Some white people treat them like criminals because it’s what they were told is the case. You’re blaming the actions of a predominantly white society and the way it treats its minorities ON the minorities because, I don’t know, it’s more comforting to see messed up stuff happen in the world and be able to justify it with “Well, they probably deserved it” for some reason or another.

        It’s like having someone lock a kid in a basement for his entire life and then when, he emerges at the age of 22, blaming him for being a little messed up in the head.

        Minorities, as a collective, can’t control their anger? Are you actually serious when you say that? Because I actually hope that you are trolling with such erroneous information. If, for any reason, what you are saying is actually true then the only reason I can think of would be that being beaten down by the same people over and over and over again will probably make you a little temperamental towards those people.

        You seem to be mistaking anger issues for being indignant because they are being treated as less than people.

        Don’t pretend that because you have had a couple of run-ins with police before that you know what it’s like to be a minority. You have no idea what it’s like to be in constant fear every time you see a patrol car ride by because you don’t know if you “match the description” of some guy who robbed a house eighteen blocks away. Neither do I. I don’t have to fear that and I can’t possibly imagine living that way.

        I find it particularly sad that this mentality exists to this day. There is no reason for it and it’s more than a little embarrassing to be reminded every day that I live in a country that prides itself on its freedom and its citizens but the people in it can so easily disregard their own just based on the fact that they aren’t the majority of the people here with that skin color.

        In conclusion,

        Shut up, please. For the sake of humanity, just crawl into a hole somewhere. You’ll be happy there. You can blame the black people all you want and no one will care.

        • Giggidy12344

          Haha that was the longest POS I have ever read. You offered no facts to counter the facts that I laid out. Way to go SJW. Product of your environment is a load of crap. There have been many cases of successful people, black and white, to come out of poverty and overcome their environment. Please provide facts if you want to have an intelligent conversation. At this point you have only offered your feelings and opinions. Show me some facts that counter my argument and we can discuss. Also, I’m not a racist. I have a ton of minority friends. You are the ignorant one who cries racist when you can’t offer any facts to back up your bullsh!t accusations.

The best thing any department can do is to refuse to allow the needless annoying and harassing of people going about their harmless business on the streets and to refuse to protect and exonerate criminals in their ranks. Weed out the mentally off and fire and prosecute renegades like these to make an example of them.

    • mew

      Go after judges and prosecutors who clear officers of their crimes a well as those in higher authority because the orders come from them…

  • Randy G Chilton

    im white and that is wrong i am mad as hell

  • BigO

    “He took a fighting stance”? That makes no sense. If his attempt was to be combative with the officer, it was a very weak one. He didn’t resist the officer’s aggression whatsoever. The guy looked to be physically strong, and I bet if he wanted to, he could have man to man given that cop a run for his money, if not kicked his ass. The cop was just a bully.

  • Get a Life

    FIRE THIS FAKE CRIMINAL COPS NOW!!!!

  • Get a Life

    NO EXCUSE!!!! THIS THUG CRIMINAL COPS GOT TO BE FIRE AND PROSECUTE THE HELL OUT OF THEM AND FIRE THEM!!! WE DO NOT NEED THUGS LIKE THEM!!! THEY GIVE BAD REPUTATION TO THE REAL BRAVE JUST POLICEMAN

  • Larry Lawler

    i am ashamed and embarrassed for our country ! As a white man, i don’t believe that i would be treated this way, and certainly no other person should be treated this way – this has to stop – charges have to be filed and verdicts need to come down on the side of right !

  • Mike Smith

    This cop needs his ass beat…plain & simple. U can’t talk to a person like this, it does no good! He should be hog tied and beat until he’s unconscious.

  • Bob Testino

    If you think he took a fighting stance then you know nothing about fighting! Both of his feet were together you dont have any balance when your feet are positioned like that !if your involved in an altercation your going to wind up on your ass! I have many years of martial arts and boxing experience to back me up !

  • Russell Alexander

    Fighting stance?

    From what, the Jimmy Olsen school of fighting?

    His feet were parallel, and together. A stiff breeze could have knocked him over. His hands were at his side, his shoulders completely down and relaxed. Even as the cop was grabbing him, his hands never moved from his side. The only thing he could have done to be more submissive would be to lie on his back and expose his belly.

    Please explain how the hell you came up with this?

  • Kathy Bitter

    wtf all those cops just for a jaywalker, some cops are just think they are all that and more

  • Openeyes-openmind

    what the hell is a fighting stance. He was just standing there. Only thugs interpret things in that way

  • ForReal

    LAWYER more people are getting rich because of these bad police officers. They should be removed from duty because this is not protecting the public.

  • mew

    You must be white…

  • Giggidy12344

    Try looking at this from another perspective. You don’t know what the man was doing prior to the video starting. You don’t know what he said to the cop, he could have threatened the officer or the officer’s family. You don’t know how long the officer was following him telling him to stop. What you do know: jaywalking is a violation and you can be ticketed/fined for it. This is uncommon but if you are being a d***head to the officer you can be fined and they will ask you for your ID. Jaywalking is also a means for law enforcement to stop/question someone who is acting suspicious, matches the description of a criminal etc. The suspect removed his jacket which is a universal symbol of “let’s get ready to rumble”. Not saying the cop was right, but you have to look at everything from both sides. Otherwise you are just another lemming following the leader to certain death.

  • Giggidy12344

    Gregory – where you a d***head to the officer? Or were you polite and cooperative? Please don’t play the race game with this. There is no way to confirm race played a factor in this case or yours. I’m white and have gotten the s*** kicked out of me by cops before. Mainly because I was mouthing off at them. Oh, and they were black cops, but I never cried racism.

  • Giggidy12344

    Did either of you watch the dash-cam videos? It is a residential neighborhood, yes. However, that neighborhood is right next to 2 main intersections.

    • seanmartin

      Oh noes!!! And apparently drivers in Sacto are so blind that they cant see a guy walking across a pretty empty street during a blindingly sunny day!

      • Giggidy12344

        Hey seanmartin, I see you’re stalking me again. Glad to see you Canadian’s care so much about what goes on in an actual functioning country. Apparently you have never seen a major roadway in California. Drivers there are absolutely insane and don’t pay attention to a thing around them. You also didn’t watch all of the dash cam videos. If you did you would have realized that the street they ended up on was right next to a busy intersection/road. God job being an uninformed SJW. People like you make me sick to my stomach and fear for the future of civilization. Fact is none of us know what happened prior to this video or what was being said to the officer. Could the guy have been threatening the officer’s life, sure. Could the officer be a d***head, could be. Fact is you don’t know what happened and haven’t done any research so you should probably f*** off down the road sunshine.

  • Anna Merriweather

    He profiled him, because of the way he looked and dressed, jay walking is no reason to do, that to a person.

  • Anna Merriweather

    I agree, to many real crimes happening, for them to take him down like, that for jay walking. GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE! Young man get a lawyer and sue.

  • Rodney James

    He baited the Cop by dropping his coat like he was going to fight and the Cop stupidly took that bait. Even the gentleman was jaywalking, the Cop nullified that with his excessive force and the fact that the peep didn’t resist at all. He’s going to be set for life and we get to pay him via taxes. Next time, just give him his ticket and walk away officer.

  • hmdouglas

    The KILLER COPS! When is this maddness going to be stopped?

  • Christine Sires

    The bro took off his jacket as wanting to fight. That is what I saw. Shut the “f”, he was challenging the officer!!

  • Giggidy12344

    Dawn you are a completely retard and so is everyone else on your thread. Look up the laws in the city and state before you spout off like that. Jaywalking is a ticketed offense with a penalty of up to roughly $200. If a cop stops you for it, they are probably going to give you a warning. If you’re a D***head about it, the cop is probably going to issue you a ticket and ask for your ID. If you refuse, then you are obstructing an investigation and can be arrested. Resist? OK now they got you for resisting arrest as well. You don’t know what happened before the video so how about waiting for ALL the details to come out before jumping to conclusions. The guy could have been seen leaving a know drug spot, he could have threatened the officers life, could have been acting suspicious. You don’t know so don’t judge.

    • hatch99

      And how many white people who constantly “jaywalk” get the sh*t beaten out of them? You sounds stupid to have missed the whole point of this article. White people don’t get the sh*t beaten out of them by cops. They get talked to respectfully.

      You are spot on we don’t know what verbal exchange there was because the police officers were NOT WEARING CAMERAS. We the people should have our police officers monitored.

      • Giggidy12344

        hatch99 – regardless of race, if you talk politely and cooperate you will be fine. I’m white and have gotten the sh!t beaten out of me by white and black cops. I got myself in that situation and made it worse by being disrespectful and mouthing off. I didn’t cry racism or police brutality because I knew what I had done, and it was wrong. Also, white people are killed at the hands of law enforcement almost 2x as much as blacks so don’t start that BS.

        If that man had just stopped and talked to the officer he probably would have gone on his merry little way. However, when you do not listen to a lawful order you are in for a rude awakening. Jaywalking is a violation and you can be fined for it.

        If you want to monitor the police that’s fine and I am for that as it would make cases like this disappear. Just remember all those cameras and tech is coming out of our pockets and takes a long time for all of them to get outfitted with them.

        • hatch99

          Did you just somehow miss the video here? Of the black man who was PUMMELED REPEATEDLY? Who talked politely and cooperated even though he known d*mn well no white man crossing there would ever have an issue?

          • Giggidy12344

            There is no audio dumba$$. There is no way to tell what was being said by either side.

          • hatch99

            Oh yeah that’s right police officers have fought against wearing body cameras.

            He does’t look aggressive, has his hands up, gets PUMMELED REPEATEDLY.

          • Giggidy12344

            Holy sh!t….I can be extremely aggressive, confrontational and threatening with my hands at my side. In fact, that is one of the most dangerous places to have a suspects hands as it is close to the waistband where most pistols are concealed. Congratulations! You just won the jacka$$ aware for the day.

          • hatch99

            Hey jacka$$ a white guy HAD HIS HAND ON HIS GUN and the police talked respectfully to him and didn’t kill him.

            Some black guy with the same gun permit told the cops who pulled him over he had his gun in the car and then was shot to death.

            Really, get out and read some of what’s going on that’s outside your little bubble.

        • spreadLOVE

          White people are killed by cops at about the same rate as black people. The problem with that is that white people account for + percent of the population, while black people account for 13%. But please, keep on coming with these diabolically blind assumptive reasons why racism does not exist.

          • Giggidy12344

            Haha way to deflect the fact that you made an idiotic accusation by misquoting me. I’m open to meaningful conversations as well, but you are too dumb to have one. I’ve brought facts and stats to an argument, you brought feelings. Have a nice life in your parents basement snowflake.

            Here’s some education for you. The term “snowflake” that is circulating, promoted recently by the alt right, refers to the flakes of ash coming from the chimneys of the ovens at the death camps during world war two. It actually is a vile and threatening term that many of ALL political persuasion are using. As I inferred, there is nothing uplifting or Godly in your conversation. I shan’t reply to anymore of your ramblings. Have a nice day…

          • Giggidy12344

            Here’s some education for you….there is no God.

            Snowflake is used to describe a person incapable of seeing other view points. They think they are special and unique and typically fall on the left side of the isle. You have brought nothing to the conversation other than your snowflake feelings. I feel sorry for people who have to interact with you on a daily basis in person. Peace be with you and your idiotic kind.

          • musikfanat22

            From this moment on, you are being ignored. Only a fool of the highest degree will keep trying to get attention from those that ignore him. Are you that fool? By the way, I would have to value your opinion to feel insulted by any of your insane ramblings, but, as it is, I feel nothing concerning you, other than I hope that you will be alright and find salvation. Have a nice day…

          • Giggidy12344

            Colonialism refers to a situation where white people like you invaded other people’s land, stole their land, turned them against each other through favoritism and trickery, and then proceed to pat yourselves on the back for “civilizing” the natives whilst destroying their lands with your fossil fuel based industrialization, when any idiot can see that digging shit out of the ground to power factories is an unsustainable method.

          • Vanessa Thomas

            Yes you did………. minorities are generally more violent right. Thats what you said. Like the kkk, white supremacy, skin heads, nazi’s arent violent. If minorities are so violent, where did the learn it……….. lets start back in the 16th century … who taught violence ????

          • Giggidy12344

            I said minorities are generally more violent, backed it up with facts. I never called this person a criminal. Are you retarded or just a left wing nut job who disagrees with everything that isn’t politically or socially correct. Le

            Who taught them violence in the 16th century? Hmmm let me see, how about themselves. They had been conquering and slaughtering each other for land and resources for centuries. African tribes did it, Mexican’s did it, Native Americans did it, the Europeans did it. It is a natural instinct to take over land for your people. Animals do it in every ecosystem as well.

            You are an imbecile.

          • spreadLOVE

            Minorities are more violent? That is exactly the type of racist tripe that causes cops to pull bullshit like this and get away with it. “Oh, I feared for my life, because he was so…black.” That is part of the build in, institutional racism that exists in this country. Historically, white men are MONSTERS who invade and kill recklessly and without abandon. Shall we go back down the trail of tears and explore YOUR violent past, white man? Whose kind have killed MILLIONS allover this planet, including hundreds of thousands of your own brothers in the civil war?

          • spreadLOVE

            So far the police have given no reason for his arrest other than: he was jaywalking. So all your justifications for this ridiculousness are bullshit. There are no facts to support your “You don’t know what happened” narrative. What we SEE, and what that police department have commented on thus far, is that this man was jaywalking. NOT coming from a drug spot, or threatening the officer’s life, or any of that other crap you have trotted out to support your narrative, which is that somehow, what happened is not exactly what we see: a cop unlawfully assaulting a citizen for a minor infraction.

        • hatch99

      • Giggidy12344

        You can’t hear what they are saying so you can’t make a judgment one way or the other. You also don’t know what happened before the video started. Also, the cop was trying to give him a ticket and the guy kept walking away. Sorry but that is obstructing an investigation and guess what, another offense.

        Point is this, if you are being commanded by an officer to do something, just do it. If you are confrontational and a dic*head then you are going to have a pretty crappy day(case in point).

    • Rodney Patricia

      Are you serious? The lady said he just got off work and obviously they were dropping him off and he jaywalked across the street! The cop had no right to beat him like that! Period!

        Where did you hear that?

    • stmccrea

      When is the last time you heard of or saw a white person arrested for “obstructing an investigation” of a JAYWALKING incident? When is the last time you saw a white person tackled to the ground in the context of a JAYWALKING incident? Can you find one example anywhere? Besides which, if it were a white person, I’d be outraged, too. You’re looking through a filter and seeing what you want to see. Back off and be objective here – tackled, for JAYWALKING? Come on, now, that’s RIDICULOUS!

    a badge. This rotten excuse for an officer
    is one of them. Nandi did nothing wrong,in fact, before this officer
    attacked him, Nandi was not shouting, he did not rip off his jacket as
    if spoiling for a fight,. he eased it off and dropped it. Likely trying
    to show the officer he was not armed. He was then just standing, he not
    acting aggressively at all. This Officer was on a power trip, that or he
    was simply a racists jerk. I hope after seeing this. the officer is
    fired, and made to pay what ever his actions cost Nandi, lost work etc,
    this man had no record and should not have been treated this way.
