This video shows a confrontation between some street vendors in Sunset Park and officers of NYPD 72nd Pct.
It starts off with officers telling the vendors they had to clear out by 6pm. The vendors were asking questions regarding why they had to leave. The police didn’t feel like they had to explain themselves to mere citizens of New York and from there it deteriorated quickly.
One fat short cop was asking a woman things like her name and her age and a larger young man standing with her simply informed her that she didn’t have to answer those questions just because fat short cop asked. Well, as you can imagine, Fat Short got mad. As Cartman is keen too say “respect my authrahtay!”
Fat Short grabbed the young man and the pile on party began.
During the melee, cops are grabbing women, pushing them around, putting them in choke holds, throwing them up against tables. One cop punches the young man who dared to talk back while struggling on the ground. Another rushes up to kick him while still more start breaking out their batons and swinging them around. It’s basically a panicfest by the NYPD. God forbid they come up against real criminals.. or maybe… men.
The young man was handcuffed and lead off to face various crimes against the state, as many as Fat Short could come up with during the ride to the station. From what I saw, he committed no crime. You are allowed to defend yourself from illegal wrongful arbitrary arrest aren’t you?
When the fascist ruler of Haiti and a close friend of the U.S. François ‘Papa Doc’ Duvalier, had trouble with meddlesome peasants who dared to resist his corrupt rule, he created a paramilitary force called the Militia of National Security Volunteers.
They were soulless thugs who would do anything to maintain their person access to a better life than those being lived by the common folks in Haiti. Their reputation for brutality is unmatched in the annals of death-squads created by our ‘friends in the region”
By all accounts, they were monsters in uniforms, high most of the time and always ready to openly commit the most heinous acts one human can do to another for no other reason than someone didn’t “respect their authrahtay!”
They became known as the Tonton Macoute after a children’s story bogeyman who would come to take away bad kids in a gunnysack, carrying them off to never be seen again.
Wearing their trademark mirrored sunglasses and designer T-shirts, these murderers and cannibals were named after a terrifying bogeyman from Haitian mythology, who carried off naughty children into slavery. Daily Mail
One might wonder if I’m slipping into hyperbole by comparing the NYPD to the Tonton Macoute. After all, their brutality is legendary while the NYPD’s is just in it’s fledgling stages.
The Tonton Macoutes cut out the hearts, eyes and lungs of opponents with machetes, while Papa Doc, who stole almost a billion pounds in foreign aid, insisted that every television and radio programme had to be entirely in praise of his rule. Daily Mail
Brutality and terror in support of a corrupt regime was the essence of the Tonton Macoute while the absolute lack of accountability ensured things would only get worse.
Sure, the NYPD thugs may not be there yet, but as the economy gets worse and people get more desperate while no cop is ever held to account for his crimes against the citizenry… well… you don’t have to be a voodoo witch doctor to see where that is headed.
Oh wait… the NYPD is “investigating” now that a video has surfaced online of the incident. I’m sure justice will be done. How’d that Mike Brown thing work out by the way?
Video after the break.
