Police Officers Murder Veteran in Broad Daylight
Published on May 18, 2014
Tommy Yancy, 32, father of two, was savagely beaten to death by five law enforcement officers during a routine traffic stop near the city of Imperial last Sunday, on Mother's Day. Yancy, a veteran who suffered from PTSD, served in Afghanistan and Iraq in the 259th Field Service Unit following the 9/11 attacks.

Yancy was stopped on his way to the store after a highway patrol officer spotted a missing front license plate on his vehicle. He was subsequently pulled from his car and attacked by a police K-9 unit, hit by a taser, and attacked by five officers until he succumbed to the beating and died. A witnessed, who filmed the incident, can be heard screaming on the recording: "How long before you guys call an ambulance? Call an ambulance!" According to the source of the video, who asked not to be named, his family has not been permitted to see his body, nor have they been given a cause of death.




A close friend of Yancy described him as "shy, and a comedian" and told me, he was an "excellent dad, who kept in contact with his army buddies every week." He also enjoyed basketball and loved hip-hop music. His sister-in-law, Jaqueline Hernandez, described him to me as "a very loving guy, loved his kids to death... they were his everything. Very funny down to earth guy, and loved by all".




Officers claim Yancy swung at an officer and attacked the K-9, however, near the end of the video, posted to YouTube on May 12 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoqvX...), police are seen attempting to revive Yancy while a witness states, "All of this for one guy who wasn't even resisting arrest,". The officer is said to have received no serious injuries.




Deputies with the Imperial County sheriff's department were involved in another shooting last month, which took place on April 18. A teenager, Adrian Parra, was killed by multiple gunshot wounds. An honor roll student from Coachella Valley High School, Parra was described by loved ones as "a good person with great goals in mind." The Sheriff's department has refused to reveal whether or not the shooting was captured by one of their patrol car's dashboard cameras. Two officers involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave, but have since returned to their duties.

Do we have another Albuquerque on our hands, or is this just a systematic wide spread problem that is under reported in most instances? Hint- its the latter.




Its time to demand the demilitarization of police and for them to be held accountable for their actions. We have become complacent and conditioned to accept brutality as normal mode of operation. "They are just doing their jobs", "They need to get home to their families", "Its dangerous!", yet a report put out by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund highlights that 2013 has had the "Lowest Level of Law Enforcement Fatalities in Six Decades" http://www.nleomf.org/assets/pdfs/rep...

So why is police violence escalating?


We read stories about a teenager with down syndrome being beaten in front of a crowd, a man who called the police to report his sons suicide being brutalized by the same police he turned to for help, and watch the video of Kelly Thomas being horrifically murdered while pleading for his life... But what do we do? We hit share, maybe retweet, shake our heads at the sad state of affairs and move on with our days. We are allowing this.

When one allows oneself to be an agent of Negativity, one can only expect to be a victim of Negativity sooner or later. There is no other way, no matter how much hypocrite people will try to rationalize their way around that.

Try, for once, to be an agent of caring and love, and notice how much improvement it will do in your life IF you are genuine.

It is true that everyone "can only expect to be a victim of Negativity sooner or later" whether or not they are "an agent of Negativity", whatever the hell that means.

It sure sounds like you are blaming the victim here. Please tell me I'm wrong.

I don't go around telling people who is wrong and who is right, you can think whatever you want of my previous comment.

As for me "blaming the victim", that is not the case, for I am not anxious to blame anyone. I leave the business of finger-pointing to others. I just stated a universal fact : Whatever you send out there, it comes back to you sooner or later. If you can not understand that, there is nothing I can do about that.

Does it make me happy that an agent of oppression got back what he used to be part of ?. No it does not make me happy, and it does not make me sad neither. That's the language he chose to speak, and he met others who chose to speak the same language : I don't feel the need or the duty to pass a judgement or intervene in their conversation.

So since this is a "universal fact", can you explain why thousands of politicians like Cheney, the Bushes, Kissinger, etc. often go to their graves without any repercussions whatsoever, while millions of innocent people are beaten or killed?

Quote:...can you explain why...

Gather all the bushes and the cheyneys of the world that you want, and they are as harmless and powerless as vulgar mosquitos and cockroaches (with all due respect to the animals known as Mosquitos and Cockroaches). Their perceived 'power' is only due to the thousands and thousands of opportunistic idiots who CHOSE to pledge allegiance to them. People choose to focus on the bushes and cheyneys of the world because of that finger-pointing business most people like to indulge into.

Satan does not make anyone do anything. He merely whispers into people's ear. Whether one does what Satan suggests it is entirely up to the individual. It is called Free Will, that is why man is held accountable for his actions when all is said and done.

Really? All the people they killed don't see it that way.

There is nothing 'perceived' about their power at all. It was real when it caused the deaths of innocents. They gave the orders, they are responsible for the repercussions of those orders.

You call it finger-pointing, I call it justice.

So we both agree that Satan has nothing to do with these crimes.

So we both agree that the 'powerless' and 'harmless' mass murderers should be tried for their crimes, right?

Ok, I will continue this exchange of inputs with you as soon as I find an escalator performant enough to go as low as where you are dwelling at this moment.

Keep in mind that I love you eventhough it might appear not to be the case.

Best of luck.

So instead of answering a simple question, you insult me. Nice. Here is the question again:
