Police Officer Punching a Suspect; Man is Now Suing

Quote:
A man who pleaded guilty to stealing is suing Kansas City police, claiming they used excessive force in arresting him.

Manuel Palacio, 24, alleges that officers kneed him in the back, beat him in the ribs and made verbal threats during the arrest on the morning of May 2, 2014, at Independence and East Cypress avenues.

The lawsuit names Officers Shannon Hansen and Jacob Harris and Sgt. Todd Hall. Hansen is no longer with the department. According to a court record and a police statement, Harris and Hall are on administrative assignments during a criminal investigation.

Palacio matched the description of a suspect in a reported armed street robbery when police spotted him. A dashcam video shows police driving onto the sidewalk and striking Palacio with the vehicle before an officer gets out with his gun drawn. Placio complies with an order to get on the ground and police handcuff him.

“Defendant Officer Harris then told Plaintiff not to say another word, and if Plaintiff did, he was ‘going to the hospital,’ ” according to the lawsuit.

“Defendant Officer Hansen then yelled at Plaintiff that Hansen was giving the alleged (robbery) victim ‘your address, and you mom’s (expletive) address and everybody’s address that you know and I hope his family comes over and takes a (expletive) ball bat to your (expletive) head, mother (expletive).”

The suit contends Palacio did not resist arrest and was unarmed.

The police department issued a terse response.

“The department became aware of a possible case of police misconduct several weeks ago,” the statement said. “KCPD immediately initiated a criminal investigation, and it is ongoing at this time.”

According to court documents in the criminal case against Palacio, the police department gave the video to his attorney in April.

The prosecutor’s office did not view it until September. When it did, the office advised the police department that it warranted an investigation. Police advised prosecutors on Oct. 5 that the department was investigating the matter.

That same day the state asked the court to seal the video, but Palacio pleaded guilty to one count of stealing before the court ruled on that motion. He was sentenced to five years in prison.

Michael Tabman, a former FBI agent, watched the video. He said the officers took the arrest too far.

"He (Palacio) did not fight, he did not resist, he complied," Tabman said. "There's no reason to get that aggressive with him."

Palacio can be heard crying on the video and claiming his innocence.

"He was under control of at least four police officers and he's handcuffed," Tabman said. "All he's doing is crying and claiming his innocents and he's allowed to do that."

Still, Tabman said the officers involved deserve a thorough investigation and for their side to be heard.

Porto said the investigation wasn't launched until a request was made for the dash cam video.

This video is just surreal. . I guess professionalism means something completely different to cops and it seems completely appropriate.

Didn't even hear his Miranda rights being read

Miranda rights don't need to be read during an arrest. That's Hollywood bullshit. They only need to be read during an interrogation.

Re: Police Officer Punching a Suspect; Man is Now Suing

Ah, another "Dindu nuffin!"
If you didn't do anything, why did you plead guilty in the end, hmm?
Yeah. You got perhaps 3 punches because you wouldn't shut your fat mouth. You started out right: Just drop and don't resist. Had you stayed quiet, I doubt you would have been hit. But no. "I dindu nuffiiiin!" Yeah, the cops are going to love you for that...

Prosecutors pressure defendants into pleading guilty thinking they will get a lighter conviction.

Yeah, I've heard that, and you'd have to be an idiot to believe you'd get a lighter sentence for pleading guilty. But whether or not you're guilty, want to avoid getting the shit beaten out of you? Don't resist, don't mouth off, don't piss off the cops. Just drop, put your hands behind your back, shut the fuck up, and let the cameras roll, take perhaps one punch because let's face it, pigs will be pigs, and then once you're done being processed, make a LEGAL stink about it.

Problem is most nigglets are too stupid to know how to work a situation in their favour; it's why they're such easy targets.
