Officers in Unwarranted No Knock Raid Terrorize Family and Murder Child

Civil Rights Violations by Unwarranted No Knock Raid a Growing Police Problem

The frequency of civil rights violations carried out daily across this nation by out of control police departments is as alarming as is their sickening and shocking natures, but unwarranted no knock raids are the worst kind.  Just over four years ago an innocent seven year old girl was shot in the head and killed by an over-zealous SWAT team officer in an out of control no-knock raid  carried out on the wrong address in Detroit, MI.

Here’s what happened on May 16, 2010 in Detroit.  A “Special Response Team”, or SRT in police lingo (don’t you love the official sounding names?)  had prepared to carry out a surprise no-knock raid on a wanted man. It had been determined he was living in one half of a duplex rental unit in a Detroit neighborhood.  Another family lived in the other half of the duplex.

The SWAT Team had obtained a warrant for the unit in which they had determined the wanted man was living.  The big mistake the team made in their midnight raid was to raid both sides of the duplex.  They did have a warrant for the address of the wanted man, but not for the innocent family who lived in the other half of the duplex.

Officers arrived in armored vehicles armed with automatic rifles and battered down the doors on both sides of the duplex.  A neighbor who was outside walking his dog when the police arrived tried to warn the cops that there were children and innocent people inside the second residence the cops were about to mistakenly raid.  The children’s toys all over the yard should have tipped them off too, but that neighbor was pinned to the ground and restrained by other officers while the unjust raid proceeded.

What they found inside the residence they had no authority to enter was a sleeping family – Mom, Dad, Grandma, and four young children.  Grandma was asleep on the couch with her 7 year old granddaughter.  The raid began and ended in tragedy in less than 30 seconds. One officer broke a window and tossed a percussion grenade inside, while others rammed the front door open. In the next 6 seconds of total confusion, the SWAT team leader, Joseph Weekley, shot and killed an innocent child.

What is worse, several hours more of mayhem and abuse ensued.  Aiyana Jones, 7, was dead.  Cops restrained her distraught grandmother  on the floor in handcuffs and forced her to lie in the child’s blood and the broken glass from the window that has been shattered.  Further abuses not only to the grandmother, but to both of the murdered child’s parents occurred over the next several hours.

Aiyana’s father was also required to lie face down in a pool of his daughter’s blood, while he pleaded for some kind of explanation for what had just happened.  He was given none.  Aiyana’s grieving and frightened mother was detained for several hours, forced to stay sitting sitting on the couch in the blood of their murdered daughter, after which she was transported to a facility where she was forced to undergo — a drug test!

Police at first claimed they had a rightful warrant.  They can apparently do no wrong.

The suspect that the police had sought was arrested and taken into custody in the raid.  He was in the other duplex unit, the side for which the police had initially obtained a signed warrant.  As soon as police realized the error they had made, the police chief took action to get a CYA warrant for the second residence – after it was broken into and Aiyana was killed.

Shouldn’t we expect some admission of error from someone on the part of the police department, and not just a massive cover up of a blunder that resulted in the death of an innocent child?  Shouldn’t we expect to see some kind of admission of error on the part of the officer who pulled the trigger and put a bullet through seven year old Aiyana’s brain?  Shouldn’t we expect remorse from the trigger man?

Apparently, every action taken by a police raid is infallible and justified.

Four years and two mistrials later, the gunman is held unaccountable

Prior to this incident, Joseph Weekley, the officer who pulled the trigger on Aiyana, had 14 years of law enforcement experience.  In 2007 he was under investigation as a member of another police raid team in which guns were pointed at children, and two family pets were shot.

Weekley also aspires to be a hero in the SWAT team raid business.  A&E’s pro-police-state reality show, “The First 48”, glorifies the aggressive use of police power.  The team of which Weekley was the leader in this particular raid was accompanied by a full TV crew from the show.  Their video illustrates just how hyped the team was when the shooting occurred.  They were in full aggression mode. Their macho police raid was, after all, going to be on TV, and they were going to be the stars!

Even more sickening is the involvement of the Chief of Police of Detroit, Warren Evans.  Evans had been positioning himself to be featured in the A&E program as the lead police officer, directing cops to take back the streets of Detroit.  Evans’ self aggrandizing plans backfired on May 16, 2010.

Weekley is Free.  Why?

Weekly was tried in June 2013 on a charge of manslaughter.  A mistrial was declared due to a hung jury.  In September 2014 ,Weekley stood trial once again.  The charge was reduced from manslaughter to reckless firing of a weapon causing death.  Conviction would have carried a possible 2 year sentence. It didn’t matter.  The jury was hung again, and another mistrial was declared.  According to the system, that’s the end of legal proceedings against Weekley for this crime.

If you’re not familiar with this case, here are several relevant links filled with greater detail to build and justify your outrage.  This case was big enough to be summarized in Wikipedia already.

The Lead Vaccine Developer Comes Clean So She Can “Sleep At Night”: Gardasil and Cervarix Don’t Work, Are Dangerous, and Weren’t Tested

The Lead Vaccine Developer Comes Clean So She Can “Sleep At Night”: Gardasil and Cervarix Don’t Work, Are Dangerous, and Weren’t Tested

Dr. Diane Harper was the lead researcher in the development of the human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix.  She is the latest to come forward and question the safety and effectiveness of these vaccines.  She made the surprising announcement at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination, which took place in Reston, Virginia on Oct. 2nd through 4th, 2009.  Her speech was supposed to promote the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines, but she instead turned on her corporate bosses in a very public way.  When questioned about the presentation, audience members remarked that they came away feeling that the vaccines should not be used.

“I came away from the talk with the perception that the risk of adverse side effects is so much greater than the risk of cervical cancer, I couldn’t help but question why we need the vaccine at all.”

– Joan Robinson

Dr. Harper explained in her presentation that the cervical cancer risk in the U.S. is already extremely low, and that vaccinations are unlikely to have any effect upon the rate of cervical cancer in the United States.  In fact, 70% of all H.P.V. infections resolve themselves without treatment in a year, and the number rises to well over 90% in two years.  Harper also mentioned the safety angle.  All trials of the vaccines were done on children aged 15 and above, despite them currently being marketed for 9-year-olds.

So far, 15,037 girls have reported adverse side effects from Gardasil alone to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (V.A.E.R.S.), and this number only reflects parents who underwent the hurdles required for reporting adverse reactions.  At the time of writing, 44 girls are officially known to have died from these vaccines.  The reported side effects include Guillian Barré Syndrome (paralysis lasting for years, or permanently — sometimes eventually causing suffocation), lupus, seizures, blood clots, and brain inflammation.  Parents are usually not made aware of these risks.

Dr. Harper, the vaccine developer, claimed that she was speaking out, so that she might finally be able to sleep at night.

“About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have H.P.V. at some stage of their life.  Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself.  But in those cases where it doesn’t, and isn’t treated, it can lead to pre-cancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer.”

– Dr. Diane Harper

One must understand how the establishment’s word games are played to truly understand the meaning of the above quote, and one needs to understand its unique version of “science”.  When they report that untreated cases “can” lead to something that “may” lead to cervical cancer, it really means that the relationship is merely a hypothetical conjecture that is profitable if people actually believe it.  In other words, there is no demonstrated relationship between the condition being vaccinated for and the rare cancers that the vaccine might prevent, but it is marketed to do that nonetheless.  In fact, there is no actual evidence that the vaccine can prevent any cancer.

From the manufacturers own admissions, the vaccine only works on 4 strains out of 40 for a specific venereal disease that dies on its own in a relatively short period, so the chance of it actually helping an individual is about about the same as the chance of him being struck by a meteorite.  Why do nine-year-old girls need vaccinations for extremely rare and symptom-less venereal diseases that the immune system usually kills anyway?

Black Woman Gets 20 Years for Firing Shot at Wall; White Man Gets 0 Years for Shooting Man in the Back 3 Times, Killing Him

Black Woman Gets 20 Years for Firing Shot at Wall; White Man Gets 0 Years for Shooting Man in the Back 3 Times, Killing Him

Justice isn’t blind in America. It’s very, very aware of social status, race, gender, etc. If you are a woman and you fire a warning shot at your enraged, abusive ex, apparently that is worth 20 years. If you are a man and you shoot a man in the back three times when you find him having consensual sex with your wife, you go free.

A Man In Florida Shoots a Man In the Back 3 Times When He Finds Him Having Sex With His Wife

On March 10 of this year, around midnight, Ralph Wald, 70, of Brandon Florida, got out of bed  to get a drink and found Walter Conley, 32, having sex his wife, Johanna Lynn Flores, 41, in the living room. He immediately went back into his bedroom, grabbed his gun and shot Conley three times. Conley died. Wald claims that he thought Conley was a stranger who had broken in and was raping his wife –  despite the fact that Conley lived next door, had been his wife’s roommate and lover, and had his wife’s name tattooed onto his neck and arm.

During a 911 call, when the dispatcher asked Wald if the man he shot was dead, Wald  responded, “I hope so!”

Wald never used the word rape in later reports to police, opting instead for “fornicate.” And while the fact that the two were lovers doesn’t imply consent, Flores has never accused Conley of rape — nor do prosecutors buy that that’s what Wald actually thought was happening. They say that Wald, who suffers from erectile dysfunction, killed Conley in a jealous rage. Flores  admits that she and Conley had sex regularly before and after her marriage to Wald.

While testifying, Wald  explained that his erectile dysfunction and his wife’s reluctance to have sex with him made them compatible: “In fact, she would joke a lot with me … that we were a perfect couple… She didn’t want to do it, and I couldn’t do it.”

On May 30, after deliberating for two hours, a jury found Wald not guilty. After the verdict was announced, Wald continued to show  no remorse: “If the same thing happened again, I would do the same thing.”

 

Black Woman in Florida Fires Warning Shot at the Wall When Enraged Abusive Ex Threatened Her and Gets 20 years in Prison

On Aug. 1, 2010, Marissa Alexander, a 31-year-old mother of three, with a Master’s degree and no criminal record, was working for a payroll software company in Jacksonville. She was estranged from her abusive husband, Rico Gray, and had a restraining order against him. Thinking he was not at home, she went to their former house to get some belongings. The two got into an argument. Alexander says that Gray threatened her and she feared for her life. Gray corroborates Alexander’s story: “I was in a rage. I called her a whore and bitch and . . . I told her… if I can’t have you, nobody going to have you,”  he said, in a deposition.

When Alexander retreated into the bathroom, Gray tried to break the door. She ran into the garage, but couldn’t leave because it was locked.  She came back, he said, with a registered gun, which she legally owned, and yelled at him to leave.  Gray recalls, “I told her… I ain’t going nowhere, and so I started walking toward her…I was cursing and all that… and she shot in the air.”

Even Gray understands why Alexander fired the warning shot: “If my kids wouldn’t have been there, I probably would have put my hand on her.

Probably hit her. I got five baby mommas and I put my hands on every last one of them, except for one …. I honestly think she just didn’t want me to put my hands on her anymore so she did what she feel like she have to do to make sure she wouldn’t get hurt, you know. You know, she did what she had to do.” And Gray admits Alexander was acting in self-defense, intending to scare and stop but not harm him: “The gun was never actually pointed at me… The fact is, you know . . . she never been violent toward me. I was always the one starting it.” Ultimately nobody was hurt. Nobody died. On May 12, 2012, it took a jury 12 minutes to find Alexander guilty of aggravated assault. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
