NYPD Caught on Tape Slamming Pregnant Woman to the Ground Belly First

Federal Lawsuit Challenges NYC

 

The New York Police Department has once again been caught on videotape committing another outrage — this time tackling a five-months pregnant woman and slamming her to the ground belly first as she tried to intervene when cops in Sunset Park were beating her 17-year-old son.

Throughout the summer, NYPD officers have been caught on tape on numerous occasions exhibiting brutality against Black and brown New York City residents. The most outrageous was the July death of 43-year-old father Eric Garner, who died after being placed in a chokehold by a Staten Island officer.

Sandra Amezquita, 43, who immigrated to the U.S. from Colombia, according to the New York Daily News, suffered vaginal bleeding after the Saturday morning incident. The News said her belly and arm still have visible bruises.

“You would think the police would respect a woman that is pregnant,” Amezquita said through an interpreter in an exclusive interview with The News. “I was afraid something happened to my baby. I am still afraid that something is wrong.”

She said she still has abdominal pain from the incident.

The video shows a hyper aggressive officer who clearly had no regard for whether he might be hurting the pregnant woman as he’s applying handcuffs after riding her to the ground belly first.

The baby’s father, Ronel Lemos, told The News he was horrified as he saw his wife hit the ground belly-first.

“The first thing I thought was they killed my baby and they’re going to kill my wife,” Lemos, 50, told theDaily News on Tuesday.

The video also shows the police violently flinging to the ground a friend of the couple who tried to intervene during the 2:15 a.m. incident in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, at Fifth Avenue and 41st Street.

Last week, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton suspended another cop who was caught on camera kicking a street vendor, also on Fifth Avenue in Sunset Park, as he was being subdued by fellow officers.

Amezquita was given a summons for disorderly conduct and her husband was arrested for striking Officer Elvis Merizalde in the back and shoulder while he was arresting the couple’s son, Jhohan Lemos, for possession of a knife clipped to his belt, according to the criminal complaint.

The parents said they came to the scene when they heard their son crying out as he was being beaten by the cops. The teen’s face is bruised and his right eye swollen shut in photos taken after his arrest.

“It is incidents like this that account for police-community relations being at an all-time low in New York City,” said Sanford Rubenstein, a civil rights lawyer retained by Amezquita and Lemos

Original Post

Po-Po don't play.

 

I don't know where people get the idea that you can run up on police and be carrying a weapon on your person or acting like you not gonna get arrested and not get that ass beat or killed.

 

 

I don't understand these people that act like the police is there to be nice to you, police is there to instill order by any means necessary, including whipping that ass or putting a bullet in that ass or choking you to death. They are not there to walk around the block and get cats out of trees, those days been long gone. They are there to protect property, catch drug dealers, prevent disorderly conduct and all of that. The are basically domestic military force sent by the state to watch over its citizens. And this is the USA, this isn't Europe or Japan, people over here are broken, poor, desperate and crazy. 

 

 If I'ma run up on police or act like I am gonna resist arrest, I'ma have something to run up on police or resist with. I'ma be shooting at the police when I resist arrest. I am not gonna be talking it out. I ain't getting my ass kicked or killed and without getting one of them. 

 

Police gotta deal with the threat of being shot down or assaulted everyday as a living, they ain't playing around. They ain't walking through the streets looking at Stepford Housewives and crap. 

 

People need to stop acting surprised, if you watch the TV show Cops, cops kick ass all day on that show. I never seen them just let somebody not get arrested when they didn't wanna be, I never seen them let somebody run away without getting put in a choke hold or something, I never see them not pull out a gun when somebody had a knife or something...like where do people get this idea that cops are like there to be nice and cuddly and deal with people in a polite manner?

 

Cops will kick your ass, cops will shoot you, they aren't your personal punching bag, they are not your parent, they ain't there to love you and hold you and discipline you. You only got 4 options with the police, you get  ticket, you get put in jail, you get let go, or you get put in the ground. 

 

If I was a cop, I ain't gonna mess around with you and wait to see what you gonna do to me, I'll kick your ass before you kick my ass or kill me because you wanna be crazy. I ain't there to play around with you out of some kindness of my heart, I wanna go home at the end of my shift, not end up in a body bag dealing with you. If I gotta break my foot off in somebody's ass, I'ma do it, with no apologies.

 

The police is an adversarial figure towards the citizens of the state. They are a necessary evil to keep order in society because without police, crap would be messed up way worse than it already is because people aren't trustworthy and upstanding by themselves. Stop acting like they are your friend and they supposed to give out lollipops and throw parties and stuff. They are there to terrorize and instill order. That's their job. 

Today's "white man" is the spawn of yesterday's slave master.  They're so concerned about Ray Rice and Janay, they forget they have PhD.'s and Doctorates in whipping the Black man's ass beyond royally and the woman's too; it's born within them and is deeply instilled. Five centuries and counting.......

 

Was the fetus harmed? Is the mother alright?

 

Question:  What are Black people doing, what can they do about this brutalization?

 

Maybe someone should ask a white man before he becomes a "cop", if he sees or confronts a Negro in any way, how much hatred does he harbor against him, is he going to want to harm him, beat him, shoot him, cook him or kill him, before he's hired.   Might be able to eliminate all this terror a tad toward the Negro and his seed at least a little.

Where does it say they had a weapon?  What parent wouldn't run toward their child's cries?

I don't know where Police get the idea that they can just shoot people's babies down for the hell of it.  They do and they get away with it.  We are so doomed here in Amerigo.

 

Soon the day folks are born there'll be a birth certificate and mandatory funeral instructions side-by-side.  Once the baby has grown enough to be shot dead, everything will be paid for; no donations or anything needed.

This is population control and elimination, citizens have less value and its too many of us and we are the first to go. We must create a cultural  movement to have our own. White people do not value black people because they do not want our children competing against their children.

 

We must create an environment for us so that we can have black privilege, hired because the people hiring are black, you get the contract because the people who need the work or project done are black. Your business jumps off because the base customers are black and seek your business because its black. We turn our neighborhoods into gated communities because they are black and hire our own police and set policies how we want to be policed to keep out racist cops from patrolling our streets.

 

We need to create our own black privilege.

Black people need to stop playing around with the police and arm themselves and next time they see the police doing something like this, blow his brains out. 

 

And let the police know, this is the new normal when the cops come to the hood and start beating up on folks and shooting folks. 

 

 

Police in the Ghetto for Black/Latino folks is a occupying foreign invasion force, sent there by the State aka White man to control any resistance. Police outside the ghetto is for White people, so they can feel safe, while they walk around America.

The son had a weapon on his person, which lead to the ass beating, which is what I was referring to. 

 

Amezquita was given a summons for disorderly conduct and her husband was arrested for striking Officer Elvis Merizalde in the back and shoulder while he was arresting the couple’s son, Jhohan Lemos, for possession of a knife clipped to his belt, according to the criminal complaint.

 

And it's pretty damn stupid to run up on police, while they are policing. Police is always looking out for people trying to assault them while policing because they are vulnerable. They aren't gonna let you interfere. 

 

My son getting his ass beat, I ain't gonna run to my kid without something to kill the pig. If we gonna do this, we gonna do this right, we not gonna do something stupid like run there with my wife pregnant. 

 

 

 

A white man in a "police uniform" can do anything he wants to an African in America and be as free as a bird in a god damn tree.  If an African does ANYTHING to defend himself in any way from this creep, he's a dead duck. That's the bottom line.  White men are protecting White people and their belongings from people of color, mainly Africans in America.  Africans have NO PROTECTION FROM THEM WHATSOEVER!!!!!!

A knife "clipped" to his belt?

 

I think the "ran up on the police" after they started to beat their son to death.  

I know you are not trying to justify several cops beating the hell out of a boy, instead of just handcuffing him and taking him in.  

 

I know that you are not trying to justify grown ass men throwing a pregnant woman belly-first on the street on her stomach.

 

There is no excuse for the sadistic, criminal behavior of racist cops towards the Black and Brown people [and any other people] that they brutalize, torture and murder everyday in this country.  

 

NO EXCUSE!

I never said there was an excuse.

 

I just said, what cop do you know, gonna let you run in a middle of them doing their job, gonna let you walk around with a knife clip to your belt and you not putting the knife up.

 

I read a story where a cop was doing a drug bust and the pregnant woman ran up on the cop and the cop kicked her a stomach.

 

Like I said, if you gonna pretend to resist arrest like you not gonna get arrested, or you gonna act like  you gonna prevent an arrest, then I suggest that you have a weapon, preferably a gun, and start shooting instead of being dumb and acting surprised the cop done beat the hell out of you while everybody watch.

 

Because this isn't new, people don't do anything when they see cops beat the hell out of somebody besides a record it and cops don't care about your safety because that is not their job. And the state very rarely is gonna go against their own, so nothing is gonna happen to them.

 

So I suggest, kill a cop when you see one doing stuff like this  or severely injure one because they ain't playing with you. I suggest you make their family cry on TV and demand justice for once instead of it being the other way around. I am waiting for somebody to blow a cop brains out instead of the civilian getting their ass kicked or killed for once. A precedent needs to be set.

 

But when you done resisted arrest or run up on a cop and they beat the hell out of you or kill you, I am done being shocked and awed and feeling sorry for people because they should know by now. If people can't recognize what the function of the USA police is by now then I guess it's natural selection at work. 

 

Stop playing around with the police.
