Cops Just Love Those Tasers - Mentally Handicapped Boy Tasered, Pepper Sprayed and Hog Tied

DAYTON, Ohio - Dayton police "mistook" a mentally handicapped teen-ager's speech impediment for "disrespect," so they Tasered, pepper-sprayed and beat him and called for backup from "upward of 20 police officers" after the boy rode his bicycle home to ask his mother for help, the boy's mom says. 
  

Pamela Ford says her "mentally challenged/handicapped" son Jesse Kersey, 17, was riding his bike near his Dayton home when Officer Willie Hooper stopped him and tried to talk to him.
  

The mom says that "Prior to the incident described below, defendant Hooper knew Jesse and was aware that Jesse was mentally challenged/handicapped and a minor child."



Nonetheless, Ford says, Hooper "apparently took Jesse's speech impediment for disrespect ... [and] began yelling at Jesse and after Jesse attempted to communicate with him[.] Jesse, being a minor and mentally challenged/handicapped, turned and rode his bike back to his home in an attempt to ask his mother, Ford, to help him communicate with defendant Cooper," according to the complaint in Montgomery County Court.
  

On the way, the mom says, "A neighbor attempted to communicate with Officer Hooper about Jesse's disabilities and was told to go back into his home, or he would be arrested."
  

As Ford opened her front door, she says, Hooper and co-defendant Officer John Howard, "fired their Tasers, striking Jesse in the back with both probes."
  

"Once inside the house, defendant Hooper and defendant Howard began to struggle with Jesse, who was standing against the back door with his hands up in front of his face, saying 'Please quit, please quit.'
  

"On numerous occasions, Ford and a family friend, Christopher Peyton, informed Officer Hooper that Jesse was mentally challenged/handicapped, and that Jesse did not understand what was happening," the complaint states.
  

But the mom says the cops continued their assault: "Officer Howard utilized his Cap-Stun pepper spray and sprayed Jesse ... [and] struck Jesse with a closed fist in the upper chest area.
  

"Officer Howard utilized his ASP and repeatedly struck Jesse in the upper left side of his left thigh.
  

"Back-up units were requested to Jesse's house, wherein upward of 20 police officers from different jurisdictions were present.
  

"At no point, even after being advised of Jesse's mental challenge/handicap by Jesse's family and numerous bystanders, did defendant Hooper, defendant Howard, or any other police officer present, attempt to communicate with Jesse or explain in terms he could understand as to why Jesse was being chased.
  

"Jesse was handcuffed and hogtied before being placed in the back of a police cruiser.
  

"Jesse was charged with assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest, and obstructing official business."

However, "Jesse was declared incompetent by the Montgomery County Juvenile Court and the charges against Jesse were dismissed."
  
Jesse and his mom seek damages from the city and the two lead officers, for false imprisonment, false arrest, malicious prosecution, assault, battery, excessive use of force, infliction of emotional distress and civil conspiracy. 
  

They are represented by Richard Boucher.

these cop attacks are just too public and over-the-top to be 'innocent mistakes'. 20 Cops to take down a 17 that is whimpering for his mommy to help him (no disrespect for his mental disability, just clarifying how it seems to have gone). Its like someone is trying to get US citizens to start fighting cops.

Sounds like Dayton needs a cop culling...

It's happening all over the U.S. and Europe.

What it seems to be is, that the police have been given orders to provoke the populace into riots, and mass disorders....I wonder why?

Can anybody think of a reason why? Eh?


Hint: Look at Greece.

Maybe the cops are mentally incompetent also? Sounds like good grounds for a juicy and JUSTIFIED lawsuit! The atmosphere of "anti-terrorism" spawned by a phony(false flag) attack that we call 911 has really infected the judgments of people in this nation!

How many people still think there are "good cops".
If so, then you are an idiot and you get what you deserve when the time comes.

We need to all in every State petition Congress to pass a Mandatory Death Penalty against Police Officers who committ these type of Tyranical acts against people. The Officer in this stor would be a good place to start enforcing this law.

Everyone who reads this story should post it on every forum, facebook page, everywhere. Make sure EVERYONE knows that all cops are all fucked up and evil.

My son is handicapped and if they did that to him I wouldn't stop until there was justice.

What goes around, comes around. Seattle has accepted some of the crustiest low-lifes into their police department, all the way to their utterly incompetent 'chief' who is in way above her head but maintained for political reasons.

These pigs (And I worked with law enforcement for years)deserve 5 to 10 years of GMO canned food in prison for their belief what they did could ever be acceptable. Their captain has earned a termination of command and a court hearing. Were these guys wearing the same Teutonic cross as the Dallas officers involved in the JFK assassination? It matters.

When the police are trained by Zionists, we all become Palestinians.

Enough is enough.
This kind of police brutality is epidemic.
Time to start publishing the names, addresses and photos of these cops.
Then whatever happens, happens.

No, no one is trying to get Americans to fight the police. We just allow departments to hire too many idiot former high school bullies.

Moreover, we've lowered the standards immensely to accommodate minorities. Officer idiot just showing the true nature of police officers.

Who are these people that would do that? The story is beyond ridiculous. If there weren't so many witnesses, I would claim BS. If these cops are found guilty, they have just created more danger for other cops... other cops should beat the crap out of these cops because of self defense. Pressure on boys... send them to jail and put them in jail and let them play with the real men.

It takes a real man to beat up on a kid, and a disabled kid at that. This is the role model for up-coming youth. They will now know how to treat the kid who is 'different'. Yuo beat him into submission, and after he submits, you kick him around a little more. After all, he's disrespectful. He doesn't pronounce his words correctly. Gotta teach him some respect.

To that bunch of rotten excuses for humans: You might COMMAND my respect, but not after this. YOU ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH OR MAN ENOUGH TO DEMAND my respect. Now, come and get me.....

And how about that recent SWAT team that broke down a door and shot the man 60 times. The chief that sent the squad stood up for the SWAT actions. So, you are not even safe in your own home.

I read someplace that India passed a law that its ok to break down doors. Their reasoning is that people can always file a lawsuit. But, like someone stated, you can't file a lawsuit if your dead.

Absolute scum bags, did you see the clip the other day where the cops shop the woman in the head with a rubber bullet, then when the police had a group meeting 100+ police all cheering, and the chief in charge congratulated who ever shot her in the head and they all cheered like barbarians, what the hell is happening to the police in the USA, Ive been to the USA 3 times, but Ive decided Im not coming back, especially if all they want to do is radiate me on the way in, sod that.

I am only posting as anon as can't get to grip with the others, my name is Lin and I live in the uk.

The reason for this police brutality is to instill fear in the population. so that when the time comes they will obligingly run into the fema camps. Not me I will never give up what freedom I have left to this army of monsters who as soon a we are gone will find themselves and their families treated the same. The elite are laughing at the moronic and unspeakable behaviour cause they know whats next. They Think!!!

Ok....so now that I'm completely pissed off and fired up......It is time for the people to REMEMBER who they are. This boy was innocent. He had not committed a crime. These police committed crimes and they should be prose cuted to the fullest extent of the Law. Put those mentally incompentent fact witnesses UNDER the damn jail for their breach of the peace of this young man and his family and friends. These PIGS (i think they've earned the title of PIG) are dishorable scumbags who obviously don't know anything about the Law......how is it then that they are paid to uphold and defend something they know absolutely nothing about??? I pray that they get everything they have coming to them. I'd be putting in so much paperwork on their asses they'd never see the light of day again and wish they'd never engaged me in any way. They'd NEVER work in the field of Law enforcement again....that's for certain. Lien their bonds and their bank accounts..... If anyone reads this that's involved in this matter please keep me posted... I'd love to hear more or help in any way.

Although all my interactions with police have been good, I still don't trust them. I learned a long time ago that if they have the goods on you then just shutup and comply. On the other hand I did speak to a group of 15 or so cops telling them that they made me feel like it was 1938 in Germany and they were behaving like NAZIS and got NO reaction. Maybe they were just too young to remember and didn't read books. Nevertheless I still don't trust them, even in Australia where they haven't been infected with the Fascist virus yet.
America you have my sympathy, the Fascists are running amok yet you're staying composed. Well done.

Don't you all know. Cops are part of the biggest gang in america. They are the same as bloods and crypts. They just get dental. So is the air force, navy and army. They are all parts of huge gangs. Nothing more. And who is the leader of this gang. The goverment. They just have bigger paychecks, and more people than the bloods and crypts. And we are stupid enough to keep the goverment

Regarding this time period, Edgar Cayce predicted: "And in that time, your police will be nothing but hired thugs." Right again, Mr. Cayce.
