An Arizona State University professor who was arrested by campus police last month is claiming self-defense, and the incident is getting a whole lot more attention now that 3TV has obtained video of it.

“The reason I’m talking to you right now is because you are walking in the middle of the street,” Officer Stewart Ferrin said to ASU professor Dr. Ersula Ore after stopping her near campus. She was crossing College Avenue, just south of Fifth Street.

But in less than a minute, the conversation quickly began to escalate.

“Let me see your ID or you will be arrested for failing to provide ID,” Ferrin said.

“Are you serious?” Ore asked.

“Yes, I am serious. That is the law,” Ferrin replied.

According to police reports, Ore said she was trying to cross College Avenue in the same fashion as several others trying to avoid construction.


“I never once saw a single solitary individual get pulled over by a cop for walking across a street on a campus, in a campus location. Everybody has been doing this because it is all obstructed. That’s the reason why,” Ore said to the officer. “But you stop me in the middle of the street to pull me over and ask me, ‘Do you know what this is? This is a street.’ ”

“Are you aware that this is a street?” Ferrin asked.

“Let me finish,” Ore said.

“OK, put your hands behind your back,” Ferrin said.


“Don’t touch me,” Ore said. “Get your hands off me.”

Seconds later, things escalated even further.

“Put your hand behind your back. I’m going to slam you on this car. Put your hand behind your back,” Ferrin said.

“You really want to do that? Do you see what I’m wearing? Do you see?” Ore said.

She was wearing a black dress and after being “slammed” onto the car, she was wrestled to the ground. Her dress hiked up and her body was exposed.

Here is the statement sent to the faculty:


Dear Faculty:

I am sure that many, or most, of you are aware of the events that took place the evening of May 20, 2014 between one of our faculty, Professor Ersula Ore, and the University Police. I am also sure that those of you who observed the video and audio recordings of the incident were equally shocked and disappointed that this took place in our community. We ended up with an outcome no one wanted and should never have happened.

Professor Ore is a valued faculty member at ASU. She is an outstanding teacher and mentor. The university remains supportive of her. The entire matter is being reviewed and a further statement from ASU is forthcoming. In the meantime, I want to assure everyone that the behavior displayed in this incident does not reflect in any way the values and principles by which ASU operates. We are privileged to be part of an academic community where diversity, inclusion, tolerance, and respect are central to all we are and do. This is special. We all contribute to this set of values. I very much appreciate all that you do and, like you, hope for a positive resolution to this matter.

Lemme see. A few more thoughts. .. . aside from the fact that they racially profiled this woman and assaulted her,  I’m thinking how I act with the police. I’d immediately provide my ID, tell them I worked at the school and  ask them how they were doing this evening – knowing they are recording the encounter.  My job would be to defuse,not encounter.I figure that when I speak with the police, I’ve entered  an altered reality, a strictly military reality. You have to adapt to that. If I kicked the cop - and that would never happen – I’d probably be in San Quentin right now. In fact, I was visiting San Quentin a few weeks back to see an inmate  theater  production, very cool! That's another story.  The guards bark out various orders while you’re waiting on line to get in , move here, move there, wait here, and you just do it.  You don’t act out with them.  That’s not the time. 



Driver records CHP officer punching woman
Unnecessary and excessive: That's what one man is calling a fierce encounter he captured on video between a CHP officer and a woman.

Unnecessary and excessive: That's what one man is calling a fierce encounter he captured on video between a CHP officer and a woman two days ago.

The video starts rolling right around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. A woman walking on the eastbound 10 Freeway near the La Brea onramp is tackled on the roadside shoulder by a CHP officer. The officer unleashes a barrage of punches to her face.

David Diaz shot the video of the violent confrontation from his car. Diaz says he has no idea what spurred the beating, just that before he got his camera out he saw the officer chasing the woman around a pickup truck on the onramp.

The truck pulled away and Diaz started recording. Eventually another man runs over to assist the officer. Diaz assumed it was an undercover officer.

The CHP wouldn't talk with Eyewitness News on camera about this incident, but in a written statement, CHP said the officer ordered the woman to stop, but she ignored him. Fearing she would be hurt, the CHP says the officer tried placing her under arrest.

"A physical altercation ensued as the pedestrian continued to resist arrest, at which point a plain clothes, off duty officer assisted in applying the handcuffs," the CHP said in the statement.

But Diaz says he's still disturbed by the violent response of the officer... that the woman didn't seem to be fighting back and could have been subdued in a much safer manner.

"There was no weapons, it's obviously excess force at this point," said Diaz. "He could have easily calmed her down. You can use strength without punching."

The CHP said the woman refused to give her name. She was booked as "Jane Doe" and taken to a local hospital for mental and physical evaluation.

Yeah, a human sensitivity class!  In Russia, where the police shake about everybody down, citizens regularly have cams in their cars to record encounters. Makes real sense.

Notice how the news media has failed to locate and interview this woman?


They can find Al Qaeda and Boko Haram in a cave in the middle of nowhere or in the middle of the jungle, but they can't seem to find this particular woman, in America, to interview about the incident.


Reasons police officers continue to do things like this an get away with it; they almost always have the media on their side[not interviewing the victim until they are told it's o.k. by the police] or are afraid to report the story at.

Georgia Officer Arrested After Spitting on Black Woman, Calling Her the “N” Word

 Filed under black womenLatest postsNewspoliticsracismUncategorized 

A Georgia police officer was placed on administrative leave without pay after an African-American woman reported that the officer spit on her and called her a racial slur.


Michele Griffith, 27, says off duty Clayton County Officer Thomas Sheats followed her closely, eventually bumping her car with his, while honking his horn.

Griffith says it was only after she pulled into a parking lot where she was going to get pizza that she learned why Sheats had been following her.

“Why the (expletive) you going 35 miles per hour on a 45 mile per hour road,” Griffith said Sheats told her, according to WSB TV in Atlanta.

Griffith says when she told Sheats that he could have gone around her, that’s when he lost it.
