Epic Fail Of The Day: Cops In Pittsburgh Walk For Beating College Art Student!


Jordan Miles beating PittsburghMan, I hope they are pissed out there in Pittsburgh! And the world! Why? Because the cops have won again in a case that should have been open and shut. People have been fighting for justice in the case of Jordan Miles from day one, but it doesn’t seem like justice was fighting for the boy. He’s not even a boy. He was a college student before they beat him down and yanked his braids out. Why? They thought a “bulge” in his pocket was a gun. It turned out to be a bottle of Mountain Dew. Sound familiar? Cops that didn’t identify themselves as such and ran up on the young brother. They asked him a lot of questions about drugs and such. He’s a college student. He reacted in a way that made them more “suspicious.” Sound familiar!? There are more details to the case, but a jury declared a mistrial in the case and the cops are claiming the victory! Here is a piece of a story in the local Gazette.

An eight-member jury decided in favor of three Pittsburgh police officers on Jordan Miles’ accusation of malicious prosecution and a judge ordered a mistrial on two other counts, ending a three-week civil trial but setting up an as-yet-unscheduled retrial on whether the officers falsely arrested the young Homewood man and used excessive force.
“We feel this is a win, obviously a major win,” said James Wymard, attorney for Officer David Sisak.

The officers welcome the next trial, their lawyers said.
“They want to be vindicated on the other two counts,” said attorney Robert Leight, attorney for Officer Richard Ewing.
Mr. Miles’ attorney, J. Kerrington Lewis, said his client “believes in this case. … We’re going to go back at it.”
Mr. Miles’ other attorney, Timothy O’Brien, said there are evidentiary issues that may be decided differently the second time around, which he felt could favor the plaintiff.
Officer Ewing and co-defendant Officer Michael Saldutte left U.S. District Court without saying a word. Officer Sisak did not attend the reading of the verdict.
Mr. Miles and his mother, Terez Miles, likewise declined comment.

    It seems black folk need to take the Nat Turner approach and maybe them cops will be less eager to approach a black man who they feel may not give two sh!ts about that uniform, that badge or their guns

    Black people in the U.S. need to stop that gangbangin sh1t and unify (not gonna happen I know) at least to have more relevance when they protest.

    If some sh1t like that or Trayvon Martin would happen in France, riots would have the cities burning.

    • gerald bransol

    Mark my words, these instances are going to escalate…the system has already started to let the police know that they can get away with this ish and they’ll turn the other cheek(when given a good loophole). Recently the young brotha(Chavis Chacobie Carter in Jonesboro, Arkansas) that was put in handcuffs in a back of a squad car, but somehow turns up dead and the police had the nerve to say he committed suicide. I cant stress how much the mind can be programmed to act out favorable results by countless images and audio taken in from multimedia. The black man IN PARTICULAR has been devalued so much so that people(as well as himself) are just about completely numb to his plight which is why there isnt much outrage for these CRIMES when they take place. The best way to make someone accept/go along with something is to keep that something around them, get them familiar with seeing it. When it becomes continuous, the feelings numb and the mind becomes desensitized. They will either take part in that something or accept it as part of life. Now look around yourself and the media around you and ask yourself what images/audio are you being continuously hit with and tell me you dont see these effects. “Like sheep to the slaughter”. Peace.
