Honor Student Inexplicably Beaten by Police “I Awoke Spitting My Teeth Out On the Ground”

s1By Yolanda Spivey

BLOOMINGTON IL- On June 29th 2013, Gabriella Calhoun’s life changed forever.  The night was warm and clear, and after partying with friends, Gabriella and her friends decided to go to their local neighborhood Denny’s to get a late night meal.  Gabby is an honor student at Wiley College.  She finished high school a year early and went to college a year before the rest of her cohort.

Sitting on the left side of Denny’s so they can have a view of the parking lot, her crew of 17, all high school graduates, witnessed a fight between two girls.  As the group of college bound students were ordering their drinks, the cops were called.

When officers arrived on the scene, they entered the Denny’s and approached Gabriella’s table and asked if they had anything to do with the fight.   A friend, who shall remain nameless, told the officers that they were not involved with the fight at all at which the cops left and went back outside.

The two girls who were fighting outside were allowed to go into the Denny’s to “clean themselves up.”  One girl was previously maced by a police officer in the parking lot for acting unruly.  When the two girls saw each other inside of Denny’s, they started to fight again.  The cops rushed into the restaurant to break the fight up.

As the cops tried to clear Denny’s, they again approached Gabriella’s table, at which a close friend of hers told the cops they were not involved with the party that was fighting.  The cops grabbed the nameless young man, (he wants his name protected out of fear of retaliation), and escorted him out of Denny’s.  Gabriella followed them and grabbed his side.  As she exited the Denny’s she felt a grip on her neck and arm and says that out of reaction, she tried to pull away.

What happened next was unimaginable.  According to her friends, Gabriella was hit in the face with a night stick by a female officer and was knocked unconscious.   When Gabriella finally gained consciousness, the Wiley College Student said, “I awoke spitting my teeth out on the ground.”

Gabriella then stated, “When I came to, the officer begin to choke me again.  When I was finally able to talk, I asked the officer to please let me go because I have asthma, but she [the officer], said, ‘I don’t care if you have asthma.  You were hitting my officer.’”

“Afterward, the officer kept saying over and over again, ‘how was your party’ as she held my face to the ground.”

The female cop then lifted the petite honor student off of the ground, at which her breasts were exposed because the tube top shirt she was wearing had rolled down.  She asked the officer if she could please pull up her shirt, but the officer told her to do it herself.  She then walked Gabriella all the way from the front of the Denny’s to the back where the cop cars were.

Gabriella was then sent to the precinct where she was booked on one charge of felony aggravated battery and two misdemeanors for resisting arrest.

“While at the jail, I received limited medical attention,” said Gabriella.  “The doctors only gave me ointment and an icepack which I had to ask for.”

“I think this is racial profiling not only by the Bloomington police department but also by Denny’s,” stated Lynia Cooper, friend of the victim. “Nobody else in Denny’s had to leave except the African Americans in that area.  The police didn’t hear us out and ultimately used cruel and unusual force on Gabby.”

Cooper added, “Might I add the police didn’t even arrest the females that were involved in the altercations.”

Your Black World tried to reach out to the Bloomington, IL police department, but they said they were unable to make an official statement because the case hasn’t gone to trial yet.

The entire incident left Gabriella terrified. “The whole situation is out of hand,” stated the frightened teen.  “I don’t deserve this and now I hate to look in the mirror.  When I look at what I use to look like to what I look like now, it hurts.  I had the prettiest smile but now I have 3 fake teeth in my mouth.  Nothing is the same.  I have to train myself to talk with my new teeth.”

Civil rights activists are already trying to find out what happened to the student, but are seeking to hear the police department’s side of the story.

“I want to hear what the police have to say, since the burden of proof is on them,” said Dr. Boyce Watkins, who revealed the case of Kelly Williams-Bolar, the mother sent to jail for sending her kids to a school outside her district.  “But my father is a cop, so I know that her story is not inconceivable.  Police beat law-abiding citizens for little things all the time, and regularly go outside the bounds of decency when exerting their authority.”

Dr. Watkins is meeting this week with the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton in Chicago, and says that he will get their inputs on the matter.  Until then, the family is seeking answers and support from anyone willing to provide it.  Watkins says that he is trying to figure out how a small woman required so much force to restrain, even if she was doing something wrong.

“This woman is the same size as one of my daughters,” said Dr. Watkins.  “Even if she were out of line, I can’t imagine someone having to smash her face with a billy club and knock her teeth out to get her under control.”

The victim’s mother, Montana Amy Calhoun, wants justice for her daughter.  She has given the names and badge numbers of all officers on the police report, which can be seen below.   She is also asking that anyone who can give information on resources for the family in the Illinois area, please reach out to them.  If you know of resources in Illinois that can help the family, please leave the information in the comments section of this article and/or send an email to organize@yourblackworld.net.

Names of officers involved in the incident (the asterisk is next to officers whom she says assaulted her daughter):

OFFICER JUSTIN GALE BPD 8845 *
OFFICER JEREMY CUNNINGHAM BPD 9359
SERGEANT EDWARD SHUMAKER BPD 6875
OFFICER IVY THORNTON BPD 7514 *
SERGEANT DANIEL HOENIGES 4009

    If this abuse happened as described, perhaps some enterprising citizens can find legal issues with the cops, and say “We will reveal these unless you go to the dentist and have the dentist extract three of your teeth, and then the destruction of those three teeth. If not, your police department will find that many of its employees will have their corruption exposed and will be let go, and the police department may internally collapse due to the disruption in the employment situation”

    To hear stories like this again brings up that feeling, that no one will understand US, until we fight back.No one will understand the bs, the up hill daily struggle just to be black. It don’t matter if you’re white, Latino, Asian, a Muslim, a Jew, none of those races have to deal with the things we’ve been dealing with, still deal with and probably will continue to deal with. We get stopped and searched for no apparent reason, we get harassed when walking through stores when other races look at us like we wanna steal things. People want to only label blacks as doing the wrong in society but look at this here? She’s a honor student ( and even if she wasn’t, this still would be wrong on the same level) who simply was the wrong color at the right time in that pig’s eyes. US, as a human race, not only blacks, need to educate ourselves to the truth. Blacks have always got shitted on from the justice/ police system from the 5 boys who were wrongfully accused of raping a white woman in Central Park , later to be proven that it was puerto rican dude and these boys sill had to serve jail time. Or go google Amadou Diallo, or Abner Louima, Sean Bell, and now Trayvon Martin. Not all those cases ended in death but look at the pattern, Young black once again wrongfully treated, in this case again by the cops and other races want to tell US to forget slavery or that slavery is irrelevant to this current day? That’s like saying racism is dead……if your not willing to TRULY learn about OUR history in this country, and seriously take your head out of your ass prior to reading, then you might understand why we feel the way feel about everyone, including our fellow blacks who tend to play ” blind” and take the ignorant path ” i dont want to learn about my past….”and
    You’ ll also understand why we will scream f*ck the police and racism is not dead.

    I am outraged at the racism & anger demonstrated in the world in 2013. It’s
    not only Racism, it’s a lack of Human Consciousness; Global unconsciousness -people are not well, not getting through there own lifetime of horor & trauma in alignment with normalcy. you can see the explosive anger bursting at the seems. When is hatred going to stop? our innocent children are being abused-beaten-killed-murdered & mentally scared for life. This needs to change at a Molecular level with SELF-within the Human Race & at a Governmental level. Get involved! This is a human race working towards destruction because people are mentally & emotionally challenged-unhealthy & expelling their unwellness & trauma on innocent people. Will this human race end up involved in its own extinction from not having awakenings in their lifetime? Food for thought; Work on yourself. problem is some human beings are so far gone they don’t even see how not well they really are. It is almost impossible to live in a world with so many sick people who do not recognize that our very purpose in this life time is to LOVE; GIVE; ASSIST OTHERS; and in doing so we grow.

      I am unsure of your race but due to the comments my assumption is white. often times the guilt that white people in America feel for the dehumanization of blacks manifest in a violent and oppressive way. Your comments are a clear illustration of inhumane words and an hurt soul. I will always be black,unafraid and unashamed. Despite the burdens placed on blacks all over the world we continue to beam through all of this. I hope that this comment hits a place deep within you that provides a space of reflection. Forgive yourself for your white privilege, it is an acquired one.

      I am not black, but I have the awareness to recognize that the justice system does not look upon the black race equally. To speak against it, is not a complaint, it is a an attempt to right a terrible injustice.

Not sure if you have any idea of what that means. From the language of your post- YOU DON’T… I’m sorry for you and all of those like you. I pray that you will be enlightened and can release those old-ignorant views of people who are outside of your race. GOD Bless and good luck!!

      Karen K Karp, are you illiterate? Have you checked your own spelling and grammar before you attempted to patronize your victim? You were already having issues expressing yourself intelligently before you… wait. You are not a person worthy of a response. You are simply laughable.

      Enjoy your life and I hope you are blessed.

      Also just so you know, since you wanted to bring up who exactly is getting government checks:

      White 38.8%
      Black 37.2
      Hispanic 17.8
      Asian 2.8
      Other 3.4

      Among the poorest of the poor–single mothers, living below the poverty line with minor children to support 39.7 percent of AFDC clients are Black single mothers and 38.1 percent are White women with children. Food stamp recipients are 37.2 percent Black and 46.2 percent White. Medicaid benefits are paid to 27.5 percent Black recipients compared to 48.5 percent White clients.

      Looks like we are all right there together huh? Interesting.

The police are tucked up for doing this shit but nine times out of ten they might not even get any reprimand. They might not even get suspended. That’s our justice system.

    Well for one am an unapologetic believer that ALL whites when it suits them will throw their”black friends” under a train damn a bus! Cops are the largest gang in Amerikkka!
    I am tired of explaining to white people why black people hate them. Yall kids shoot up schools, movie theaters, malls, kill ya grandmothers and ya kids. Yall kids are disrespectful as fuxk they are major drug users yet minor inmate population.
    Ever since Lincon fake freed the illegaly held humans ( refuse to call my strong beautiful ancestore the “S word”) white peoples hate has grown faster than superman cab fly! White ancestors f the Neanderthol have yet to evolve I can tell because they always want to twist their mouths to say go back to Africa….Newsflash….since the first Africans were stolen we are no longer africans dummies…your white forfathers raped that out of us and created a race of people with no homelandI was born here yet my MILLITANT SAINT MOTHER refused to allow me to pledge allegance to their faux flag as this land belongs to the NATIVE AMERICANS AND MEXICAN PEOPLE!!!!! I refuse to allow my sons to join the Armed Forces I teach them Amerikkka would never fight for you and would put a bullet in your head before the “enemy” on the otherside would. We are armed and will lay a mf down bout respect! Would never kill a brother unless they tried to kill us but the other if I did not have 2 minors Iwould do a Chris Dorner yet I have a consience and a heart but the brain overrides it.

      I like how you refer to entire race by ALL…racism in any form is wrong and you classifying all white people like that is absurd. That just shows ignorance. We are all human beings and all deserve to be treated like such. You can’t blame people for what their ancestors did years and years ago…stop looking for excuses and worrying about that past that can’t be changed and step…as for the comment that the land belongs to mexicans and native americans is also ridiculous. its 2013 people of all different races live all over the world…black people live in europe…when that doesn’t belong to them…so that comment is void. As to the school shootings and other forms of violence blamed on white people, i think you forgot to mention how riots of blacks kill innocent people of all races all over this country when a court decision doesnt turn out the way you like, because that makes sense to solve violence with more violence. We are all children of G-d and need to be in partnership with one another and stop blaming others for faults and create solidarity as one human race. By the way I am a strong, college educated black woman with many white friends and family members.

I find it so amusing how the people that are constantly spreading hate and prejudice are the people that can’t got out and do any better than the people that they proclaim are worthless. If you can do any better why don’t you run for president and let’s see if you get anywhere. Like I said, you are amusing.

While my ancestors in Africa were already advanced in math and science, you and your peoples in Europe were living in the Dark Ages doing who knows what. It is true that many whites marched with Dr. King but Malcolm X is a different story seeing as he made the pilgrimage to the Mecca to come back a changed man for the better, he was still feared by whites which is why you don’t hear talk about him from the mouths of whites unless it’s something negative. I said it before AND I WILL SAY THIS AGAIN. BLACK PEOLPE DO HARBOR HATE AND PREJUDICE TOWARDS WHITES BUT AT LEAST WE HAVE A LEGIT REASON TO HATE ANYBODY THAT HATES US AND THAT’S A FACT!

    • Keefe Adaire Stone

      July 13, 2013 at 9:20 pm

      To judge an entire people based on the actions of a few is wrong my friend. I know for a fact that white’s marched with Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X and the Original Black Panthers for equality for all peoples. I know for a fact that King, Malcolm and the Original Black Panthers fought for peace and an end to any kind of prejudice based on the actions of a few. We have all suffered bigotry in one way or another. I for example have suffered greatly at the hands of natives and hispanics for simply being white in New Mexico, I have been beaten, spat upon, verbally harassed and yet through all of it I can honestly say I do not hate ALL natives or ALL hispanics. I don’t even hate those ignorant fellows who believe in bigotry, I feel sorry for them because hate is all they know. They do not know love or kindness. And if history has taught us anything it is that love and kindness are far more powerful than hate! So are you really going to sit there and spit on the memory and Ideals of Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X and the original Black Panther Party just so you can feel justified in your illogical hate of many based on the actions of a few? Really? Think about it like this, your hateful actions will sow seeds of hate in those that you hate, only increasing the bigotry in the world. But if you show love and kindness to those you hate then you will sow seeds of love and kindness into their spawn and eventually all this hate will be replaced by love. If you really want to end bigotry YOU must walk the walk and help end it as well. Don’t follow the road traveled by many, but tread your own path. Oh and a recent poll shows that 38% of blacks think other blacks are racist, while only 24% think that whites are racist. Doesn’t that tell you something? I’m just tired of all this hate when the great civil rights leaders of the past spoke of nothing but love and equality for all. Don’t you think its time we all honor their memory and their efforts?

The only way for these bastards to see we mean business is by the way of the gun or fist. The police is nothing more but a gang themselves. The only difference is their so called actions are considered legal. All of the gangs in this country really should take a look at what’s happening and say enough of killing our own call a nationwide truce that can hold for long term, and start coming up with ways to stage a Black Spring on these no good ass cops.They are not worth the life given to them by God so therefore they should be perished straight to Hell.

    @Middle Aged White Man: let me set you straight .White people are the true owners and creators of racism. it is nothing more than the white mans voodoo which has been spreading through this planet since the dark ages. everything that the white man touches he ruins. the only reason that racism is such a touchy topic is not because of society not wanting to talk about it but it’s white people that don’t want to talk about it. white people are always doing some sort of racist things in front of Black people and then try to act like they haven’t done anything like somebody is stupid. the evil ways of the white man will eventually come to an end as we are slowly starting to witness history.

    • Keefe Adaire Stone

      And another thing, to say that “racism” is a child of white people is sadly wrong my friend. If Africa is truly the birthplace of civilization then so is slavery and racism. African’s have always slaughtered and enslaved other tribes because they thought they were better than the other. African chief’s would often sell their own tribesman to white slavers for whiskey and tobacco, this is historical fact. Even today African’s slaughter and enslave other African’s. It happens on a daily basis. My ancestors suffered bigotry and slavery from the english and catholics for simply being Irish/Scottish. We had our tongues ripped out for speaking our language, our hands and legs broken until we agreed to work and were often buried alive for lack of submission. These things have happened everywhere since the beginning of time by everybody, Not just whites. I am truly sorry but the more I read your comment’s the more I notice your lack of education, your lack of respect for the HUMAN RACE! We are all one RACE and one People. I notice your lack of education because your grammar kind of sucks in that you often make incomplete sentences. SO I must also wonder that you probably also skip’t history and science classes. If you had not you would have learned that scientifically we are all classified as part of the HUMAN RACE, and that historically blacks enslaved other blacks first because they thought they were better than the other tribe(s). I feel sorry for you bro, I really do.

    BLOOMINGTON — A video of an incident involving an 18-year-old Bloomington woman who claims police used excessive force against her backs up the city’s position that she attacked an officer, Bloomington Mayor Tari Renner said this morning.

    Renner said he has watched video collected by police from Denny’s restaurant of a June 29 incident where about 200 people gathered after a private party at Lucky Garden.

    Gabriella Calhoun said she was slammed to the ground by an officer who grabbed her by the neck as she walked out of the restaurant at the direction of police. Police cleared out the establishment after a fight between two women that started outside moved inside. Calhoun has been charged with aggravated battery of a police officer and resisting arrest.

    Calhoun said this week she underwent extensive dental procedures to repair three teeth damaged in the incident.

    According to Renner, the video shows the woman jumping on an officer as she leaves the restaurant.

    “It pretty much corroborates what police say happened. It suggests to me she was not just the innocent honor student who happened to be at Denny’s and someone attacked her,” said Renner.

    The mayor said he is pushing for release of portions of the video which could come later today.

    Once I called the police because a man attempted to sexually assault me. I called them instead of defending myself because I had been drinking and didnt want to have a hate crime or assault charge on my record. I’m not stupid. I knew how they would see that. Well they told me that I must be an “In the closet” Homosexual just trying to get attention. Once again apparently I was not arrested for lying to the police. They say I lied and am free to go. And they were very offensive. Oh yeah I’m totally gay when the cops act like their nightsticks are stuck up their ass!

You can tell their just itch’n to beat someone have to death. Everytime I’ve dealt with these F***S! They have looked at both parties and decided to take the people who have Multiple Felonies on their records and warrents out for their arrest as the victims. Even if they have been charged with aggression. I know someone that has all these things on his record and deep scars on his arms and chest from a big knife. He has the marks of alot of fights on his body and he’s black! He was taken as the victim and was given the chance to walk through the area of what happened, and demonstrate a flat out lie to the police! Told them that my friend who was also black body bumped him and he fell into a shrub, “Scratching his legs”. My friend who was also black got punched by this man. The white officers sent the only black officer who responded away. They officers ignored the bruise on my friends face and said he was being charged with assault for the “scratches” on the other guys legs. I yelled at those officers after they said that they were lied to by everyone they talked to that day. I told them if they think everyone is lying then y are they picking sides! He tried to change the subject and I looked the officer in the eye and said “Lying to an officer is a crime. If you think that I have lied to you today then arrest me right now.” he wouldn’t. He changed the subject. And I continued to call them out on their lies. They yelled back at me saying the had no idea what I was so mad about, I wasnt being charged with anything. I yelled “Because I know what its like to be singled out and discriminated when I am well within my rights and abiding by the law and have no one to stand up for me! To defend ME! I’m standing for them Cause I was a witness of them being in their right So I will defend them!” They treated Meth dealing criminals like royalty, treated me like I was an idiot, and my black friend and his white gf like they were the biggest liars in the world. Well what I’ve heard is that one of the people that was involved that they believe over us, has a friend who’s father is an officer. So they all have immunity. Its not just racial profiling, Its what is convenient for the cops and “THE REAL PEOPLE OR ASSETS THEY HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT!” They have sworn to protect who and what is in their interests! I seriously believe some or most of the cops are psychotic. They get such joy from causing even more drama, pain, and misery in every 911 call they respond to. Ever see them talking to each other at their cars just after they basically told everyone to shove it? Their talking and laughing about what they decided, said, and did and how we reacted.

    You want to see disproportional racist treatment? come to Utah. The cops here are terrible and getting worse, But you don’t have to be dark skinned to be beaten by police and charged with assault for the beating, as I saw it happen to a Finnish girl last year. And to those idiots who say racism doesn’t exist, look at the history of all drug laws, targeted per drug to different ‘ethnic’ groups. I’m as white as it gets but the prison statistics speak for themselves, more African Americans imprisoned than there ever were ‘slaves!’ Incarceration is America’s only growth industry, and prison labor is back. And the U.S. has the largest prison population in the world! This story is a travesty, if there was a racial motive or not. The cops need to be filmed and sued often, corruption is rampant. My DUI judge was just arrested for dealing narcotics in a crime ring. Don’t trust a police officer to be honest or decent in what was once a free country, for at least some of us for awhile. This kind of treatment is ‘illegal’ use of force, checkpoints are illegal, random searches, as they do in some cities are illegal, and if you want to get constitutional, drug laws are illegal, too.

    Sorry, but as a black female you couldn’t pay me to live in the United States. Americans are so fond of referring to the U.S. as the ‘land of the free’, a country of opportunities, blah, blah, blah. Is it really? African-Americans are STILL being treated like second-class citizens in America! When they aren’t being eaten, they’re being shot to death for wearing a hoodie in the wrong neighborhood.

    I’ll stay here in Bermuda where it’s safe. It’s a wealthy country with equal opportunities for everyone. Here I don’t have to worry about being pulled over for driving while black, or being followed around in a store (because all blacks shoplift according to white Americans, I guess), or looked at the wrong way for showing up in a nice neighborhood, or getting my teeth knocked out my mouth by the cops, How do you as black Americans stand being treated like that???

        Really? I found Atlanta to be very safe. Its one of the few places I’ve been that as a white male I don’t feel out of place if I’m the only white guy in the store. I can walk through a mostly black neighborhood and feel perfectly safe. At least a half of the cops I see are black. Granted I don’t live there but I do travel there several times a year, I only live a few hours away and I can only take the FL pan handle for so long before I want to choke a freakin tourist, if its not a dang tourist its a stupid snow bird. My blood pressure is going up just think about it!! Seriously though, I love Atlanta.

      To John Morgan, and anyone else citing violence as an answer to this situation. Violence does NOT stop violence it feeds it. (also the counties block the information on offices at their request.) Hate creates hate, people need to stand up and make there voices heard. This brave girl is doing the right thing by bring the situation to the public view. What needs to happen now is the public needs to speak out to the policy chief, the press, the Governor, youtube, facebook and anyone else until a change is made. WE THE PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER WE JUST NEED TO LEARN HOW TO ASSERT IT!

    Within the last week and a half, I have seen the stories of two “white” folks, non related issues, and unarmed, shot to death by “The Police” (Policy Over seers). You may ask why I mention this. Well, if cops are shooting and killing unarmed “white folks”, The worst is yet to come. Beating up defenseless young women(“black” of course). Covering incidents of abuse s of authority, position, and power; depriving “flesh and blood” persons of their divine human rights; and acting in concert with other criminal organizations (court and (ill) legal system and the (in) justice system) to bring about a system of Marshall Law right under our noses, so to speak. we must speak the language of the aggressor in order to gain his attention. we need education in law and law language and we need to know our divine rights of existence.

I find it funny that when he gets involved, he’s the only person I see and he isn’t even in the original story. It’s never the plaintiff, defendant or victim. It’s only Sharpton’s face and voice every where. Hell why don’t they just get Don King in there too! He would love to be on every channel!Yes I said Don King, the boxing promoter. But I do wish Rodney King was still alive. If I wanted to call this a hate crime, that is who I would get involved. I think he has more experience than Jackson and Sharpton, God rest his soul. You know I had the title of Reverend too. Wonder if I can become famous by plastering my face all over tv when someone in my town is a “victim” of a hate crime due to being a redneck!

What happened to this poor innocent young girl had nothing to do with color she was at the wrong place at the wrong time and unfortunately she was striked by an evil police officer who obviously does not know how to handle public citizens. But can I ask, PLEASE STOP WITH THIS RACIST STUFF!!!! I am a white/Spanish young lady who dates a Jamaican and I hate to come across ignorance especially when it has to do with human race!!! Everyone is equal and nobody deserves to be treated one way or another due to their ethnicity. As a whole we need to get this under control and put an end to it.This innocent teen who is now suffering internally will be able to see the beauty of life when this case is completed. SHE WILL SEE REWARDS OUT OF THIS HECTIC MESS!

    Yes I’m a middle aged white guy who also happens to be a conservative. What happened to that young lady was totally uncalled for. Honestly, nothing would make me happier than to see that cop taken out and have the same thing done to her, it’s what she deserves.

    Yes I know racism exists unfortunately, but just because the interaction was between a white person and a black person doesn’t mean that race was a factor. The average white person in the US doesn’t like racism, and goes out of their way to avoid looking racist. That I guess is a form racism maybe, but honestly it’s because we don’t want to be labeled racist. Stop calling everything racism, it’s not. White people are assholes to white people as well. Black people can be assholes to black people. Sometimes if a white person is an asshole to a black person, race never even entered the picture and they just an asshole. Assholes don’t need a reason to be an asshole, they just are.

      Amen Middle Aged White Man
      I am a white female and since I was a child, I have never seen color. I see ignorance, but never color. I have family and friends that are African American. To me, they are just more people in my life that I love. It is ridiculous that any time a white and black person gets into it over something, even an argument without violence, it’s due to prejudice, because it is not the case. What happened to the good ole days when we argued or fought someone and 10 minutes later were best friends again. What happened to when we were kids and we didn’t pay attention to color, sexuality, what you wear, etc? I am sick of hearing racist, racism, prejudice, hate crime. Those are words of anger and hate and NOT EVERYONE IS FULL OF ANGER AND HATE JUST BECAUSE THEY GET INTO IT WITH SOMEONE. I am beginning to believe it is the ones pulling the race card that are full of anger and hate. I wasn’t around when my ancestors allegedly owned slave just because I am caucasian therefore my family must have owned slaves. I am into geneaology and have not found anything to support that. But again, I wasnt alive or even thought of in those times. I just know that was a different time and era and people need to get over it. When I was born, I was born into a different time period where slaves did not exist and we love everyone because they have a heartbeat, breathe the same air, have the same mysterious life questions that I do, bleed the same blood, and to be honest, if we all are descendants from Adam and Eve, then we are ALL family. I dont know if we are but I like to think that we all are. I got too carried away here and off topic. But I agree with you, I’m tired of someone saying that it must be a hate crime since an African American and a White person got into a fight or argument, or it’s racists because an African American got passed over for a loan or job opportunity. I am sooooo very sorry for what happened to this very intelligent young lady. I don’t think anything warrants the force that was used on her. No one should have to suffer that kind of pain or a confidence-knock on their self esteem. Sending so many love and prayers! I hope she is able to heal physically, mentally and emotionally and that justice is served.

    Ok here’s the REAL story of what happened. I have a friend that was in Denny’s and sat there and watched this whole thing go down. It is pretty clear that they were both in the wrong and both deserve whatever the law dictates they do. The male cop had one of the girls friends held and was attempting to cuff him. The girl was arguing with the cops belligerently about them apprehending her friend and was moving towards the cops while doing so. They told her to stop and back up several times, she decided to keep moving forward. She shoved the cop holding her friend near his waist area where his gun/mace/etc were and he had both hands occupied holding her friend so the female cop took a swing with her nightstick, he said he couldn’t see exactly where it hit her but it seemed like the face area or chest area so that all is in line with what we already assume. The fact is that this girl did not only disobey direct orders in a situation where the cops were doing their job but then put her hands on one, basically touching his gun. Whether this was intentional or not isn’t really relevant, that is going to be stopped by force every time and rightfully so.

    The police THEN proceeded to rough the girl up after she was struggling and THIS is where somebody needs to be arrested on the other side of the coin. The female cop was VERY in the wrong in the way she handled it.

    TO sum it up the girl broke the law openly and obviously and then immediately proceeding the police also broke the law.

    See NOTHING to do with race, WTF does everyone want to turn everything into having to be racist, it was a matter of her acting VERY stupidly and the cops doing the same, nothing more nothing less.

    • Frankie

      July 10, 2013 at 3:30 pm

      You’re white, aren’t you? These things don’t happen to white kids. Not like this. The police had no reason to suspect the table’s involvement in the first place, except that they were Black and assumed delinquent due to racist profiling. Please, wake up from your color-blind delusion. Officers are trained to be biased and racist whether they like it or not (i.e. there are more Black men in prison today than there ever were slaves in the US. If you attribute this to a problem with Black men, that is a testimony to your ceding to racist thinking.). We are socialized to be racist and assume the worst of Black people and other people of Color. That is our sickness.

      It may be hard to look at but it won’t go away without intentional effort, the courage to hold the discomfort of acknowledging privilege and the practice of recognizing systemic racism (which is also linked to classism) as well as our own racist thinking. All of this takes great patience (with self), honesty, empathy and humility (in understanding our limitations in understanding the impact of a history [that continues today] of the dehumanization of people of color). Have some courage please and realize that this isn’t about you or your image: it’s about saving your own humanity (we have a lot to learn about serving people in the police force).

      Love, a fellow Whitey (from a long line of white officers and conservative preachers)

        thank you for dumbing us all down quite a bit with your moronic rant.

        maybe their table was targeted because it was a huge group of teenagers? im sure the 55 year old truckers who were most likely the rest of the dennys crowd were involved in the 2 teenage girls fighting WAY more than the group of 17 teenagers….. good call!

        and im white, and have been abused by cops too. so was the white cop who kicked my ass because i said his town sucked racist? or was it because i was being mouthy to a cop? and i know plenty of other white people who have been roughed up by cops for all sorts of dumb, teenager reasons.

        i can at least understand when black people call this racist, but i find it far more deplorable when you disgusting self loathing white apologist go around talking about how awful and racist all white people are. its seriously disturbing.

        that said, yes, the cop went way to far to get a teenage girl under control and f her for that. totally uncalled for. but was it some big race related crime? probably not. just a jerk cop handling a mouthy teen in the worst way possible.

Oh and btw, I disregarded a officer in my teens and ran when he said stop and dude laid me the f%#$ out when he caught me. Cops can be morons and abuse their power, doesn’t have to be about race, people just want it to be for some really messed up reason.

I am tired of some white people saying what they say when they have not experienced racism! They are not automatically racially profiled and do not have to be concerned about ill treatment. I am not condoning the girl’s actions but how she was treated was the problem~ That is what needs to be addressed and the fact that they made all the black americans leave the restaurant is evident that it was racially motivated. This is 2013 nevertheless racism and prejudice still live.

        “We are socialized to be racist and assume the worst of Black people and other people of Color. That is our sickness”

        NO SIR-you may have been socialized to be racist and assumed the worse and that is YOUR sickness. Not everyone is raised that way or “socialized” to be that way so you accept responsibility for your own decisions. Do no blame this on your heritage, your long line of preachers or police, or because you are white. That is your decision to make and yours alone and you are the only one who makes that decision. You have the right to say no, and the power of free will to decide NOT to be that way. So if that is what you choose, then that is you, not every one else.

        You called him color blind-if he is color blind then how can he be racist?

        I am a minister. Does that mean that I should be racist because you say that your long line of conservative preachers were? I don’t think so. See I choose to love. And any RIGHT preacher would choose to do the same no matter what color someone’s skin is. So again, that is your sickness and your problem because that is how you choose to be. Don’t blame anyone else or assume that everyone else is the same way. That makes an ass out of U, not me.

      July 10, 2013 at 5:04 pm

      What I like to know is what was the probable cause for the police to detain other than failure to obey a cop’s instruction? Also, why are they detaining that other girl if it was clear that they weren’t even part of that fight? Was the other girl questioned before they were detained? Was the other girl involved or was the other girl suspected of getting involved through what source? Also, is defending your friend who may or may not get arrested a crime, especially if it was in discretion of another person’s opinion? These are very important question that they would have to ask. Police have more of a responsible role than a civilian does in that they have to follow laws just like civilians if not more since they are deciding who is actually breaking them. Regardless of whether they are both in the wrong, they have to know that they are responsible for hurting someones life, either financial through citations or infractions to physical altercations. I really don’t care if people were blowing it out of proportion but if there were damages on one side compared to the other, there is some type of responsibility that is needed to be upheld. Also, it is her right to yell at cops as long as it is in a peaceful manner. If there were no assault in her part other than yelling and crossing, that would be more in the lines of the officers fault for forcefully detaining someone without proper charge of violent behavior. If you are saying that both are in the wrong than we don’t have a first amendment right anymore, that we can’t or shouldn’t peacefully protest against our government or law enforcement.

        I agree with you to an extent but in your remark you completely ignore where I had said that she put her hands on the officer. Anyone who isn’t aware that isn’t going to end well is clearly not that smart. She may be scholastically intelligent but her parents clearly neglected to teach her how to act around authority figures. What the police did, in the end was crazy wrong and illegal. But what she did was also, this whole situation is a mess in regards to how to go about prosecuting it but once again, where is the racism? It just isn’t there.

          Now I never said racism cause if you really think about it, racism is everywhere. People just don’t understand it. What I am stating is the rule of law or the process of law. Also, I would like to know more about the person laying the hand on the police. Was that girl do that first? If so, to what reason and why? I don’t doubt that this could’ve happened that way but what I am saying is that as a citizen who pays for the service of police services to serve the people, not harm them unless it is life threatening, and to serve the public interest is using almost deadly force on people who isn’t armed at all is something I would say is in the responsibility more so on the police force. If you are not armed, you shouldn’t get that type of treatment being beat by a night stick. You should just be detained and just use basic martial arts that they are taught to detail people. Hell, I know security guards who know how to use that to detail a person. My point is, there was an unnecessary use of escalation of force used on a civilian to either harm them in order to detail. That is what I call property damage of the self and there should be damages paid to by the government for using such force. Like I said, its not about racism here, its about the due process of law and enforcement of law. That is what I would be concerned about.

        The hatred is not in white people. It is preached to blacks from the time they’re born tho…you are a biggot punk. It is evident in everything you say or do. If you can’t go 1 day without saying something about a white person…what he or she did, said, ect… you should re evaluate your life…because most white people don’t give a rats ass about what you/blacks/ are saying or doing…your thoughts give you away…hater…
        For example…we would never consider having a congressional white caucus. We would never consider a website called your white world… white entertainment television? No way! White people never think about race, we leave it to you. It runs your life, we do not hate you for being black, you hate us because were not.its not the 60′s any more…how can I tell? Because the KKK, which was funded entirely by democrats, does not rule the south with their Jim crowe laws any more, they rule it with welfare now…same racists, different color.

    I know many of you feel this a racial issue however don’t worry, us white people aren’t being left out, because this kind of police brutality is spreading like a plague. Do a YouTube search for two women cavity search, its absolutely unbelievable. There are thousands of videos of this type of abuse of power.

    The people of this nation are purposefully being polarized along political and racial lines to keep us from seeing who the REAL enemy is.

      Exactly. It has nothing to do with racism. Until we can learn to stop fighting each other, we will never be able to fight FOR each other; against the real enemy. The government uses racism as a tool to distract us from the real problems we face. Like our rights being taken away.

      Like he said ^, go to Youtube and search police brutality in America, or ANY of the recent stories. There are so many it’s unbelievable. There is obviously too much power in the wrong hands.

      Large amounts of arrests and imprisonment, protesters being arrested and beaten, roadside harassment, harassment from tsa, cops shooting people who were innocent and in the wrong place at the wrong time, or their pets.

      Open your eyes to the real problem please. Stop fighting each other.

    Gabby did not deserve this.. I go to school with her and she has never been a problem at school or even been around the wrong people to get into something like this. If you know her you know that she would not fight an officer and if she had any force Gabby weighs about 105, she is a feather. The things the officer did to her and not only that but for a WOMAN cop to not pull up a young lady’s top is embrassing and shameful. Im sad that this has happen to her because she DID NOT DESERVE this. I hope that the public takes this to mind because RACIAL profiling is not over its still here in AMERICA and its a shame. WILEY STRONG GABBY WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU !!

    • Mike

      July 10, 2013 at 12:58 pm

      Where as I agree with you that she didn’t deserve this, I think a greater point is being missed. Lets take the police at their word for a second, lets assume that every word those cops said was true(just go with it). An officer is trained in non lethal self defense, and part of that is restraining suspects WITHOUT causing harm. That office CHOSE to harm Gabby. Even if gabby deserved to be punched, an officer of the law has a responsibility to protect FIRST and in harming Gabby when she could have been restrained she FAILED in her duties.

    Using batons to the head is categorically not within police use-of-force guidelines, unless they were in fear of their lives, in which case they could use their guns to shoot and kill someone.

    Not only should this case be thrown out, I think there are STRONG grounds for what will no doubt be a successful and short lawsuit. There is no doubt that the officer acted improperly. The loss of teeth is prima facie evidence that departmental procedures were not followed.

    As a condition of the lawsuit, I would seek to have all officers directly involved fired, and possibly charged themselves with assault.

    Please stop comparing this girl to Rodney King. No the cops shouldn’t have beaten King they way they did. But seriously, he was doped up on crack doing 115 in a 35! Rodney DID swing at the cops first and he IS a threat. The cops were still wrong, they should not have beaten him, again minimum force, King would have had a few bruises and they kept on long after they should have stopped. But even if Gabriella started swinging 1. she wasn’t doped up on crack 2. she is like 110 lbs soaking wet. Give her the credit she deserves, she is going somewhere in her life, the only place Rodney King is going is to the Liquor store and jail.

    Let us not forgot how a Orange County Police dept. treated another black young lady Mitrice Richardson

    she had been arrested for trying to skip out on an 85 dollar dinner and instead of them holding her until it was daylight and safe

    they let this young woman out into the late night with no money nor cell phone or transportation

    Had Mitrice been a young blonde/brunette they would have made every effort to see that she made it safely home

    my point is that black women, children and men are treated differently by the so called police who are suppose to protect and serve everyone

    Mitrice was having some mental issues, went missing in the area of the police dept where she was released from only to be found dead a year later and still Justice has not been found for her yet

    let us pray and be peaceful we must get back to marching just like the Immigrants and the same s/e/x people we must march to end police brutality

    and to see that all police are held accountable for their actions when they go outside of the protocol of to protect and serve we pay taxes too

    were not paying them to beat our azzes but to respect and protect all mankind equally

In a case like this I’d settle for a summary dismissal of all officers involved directly (either in the attack or the cover-up), trial on as many pertinent charges as are feasible to bring and a civil suit resulting in a large award for damages.

      even if she was swinging as you say, and who knows, maybe she was, but an officer of the law has a responsibility to use the MINIMUM force. Busted up face and knocked out teeth is not minimum. not a 17 year old girl against a trained cop.

    July 9, 2013 at 11:34 pm

    Although video evidence may not solve this case – someone had mentioned Rodney King before – but it has to be found! POLICE REPORTS CANNOT BE TRUSTED! How do I know this, because I witnessed cops who were not even at a scene of an arrest filling out the reports about the arrests. The cops were asking each other what they were writing, and even called a couple other officers to find out what they had heard or knew.
    I was arrested with charges of”disorderly conduct”, “obstructing justice”,”assaulting an officer”, and “resisting arrest” none of these things were true.

    My boyfriend at the times, some friends, and I were waiting for his brother to meet us. He and some friends were doing headstands and practicing headspins (yes, a break dance move) In no way was pedestrian traffic impeded and no one was being loud, disrespectful, etc. A cop came up behind my ex and just pushed him to the ground. He stood up, angry and ready to swing (because he thought it was one of his friends) but when he saw it was a cop, he calmed down. The cop yelled, “get him” and I kid you not, 3 plain clothes cops came out of the crowd and one clothes lined my ex to the ground. They put him face down to the ground, kicked him, were pulling on his arm, really hurting him. (He said one of them said, “I’ll make it so you never dance again”} Friends and I were telling him to not try to get up because they would hurt him… A crowd was gathering as the cops took him away.
    **I was video taping.
    We followed, and a person in the crowd asked me why he was being taken in and I told the person I didn’t know, they had no reason, hadn’t told him reason, and they were violating his rights. That’s when the cop who had pushed him down told another officer to take me into custody. He also told the officer to “get the phone”. I was able to switch the phone in my hands so he didn’t see it and then pass it off to another friend who was with us.
    When I was taken into custody the cop simply held onto my arm. His grip was hard, so I asked him to please loosen his grip because he was hurting me – yes, I Said please …

    some stranger who was in the crowd who was yelling about police brutality was also taken into custody, and then one of our friends who went up to the cops, after I was in the car and so was my ex, to find out where we were being taken, was also arrested.

    The police report said I was pulling on the cop who arrested my ex, trying to physically stop him and yelling at him. It also stated that when I was taken into custody and cuffed I flailed my arms and hit the female officer (but it was a male who took me and just held my arm until a female officer came to the scene to search me)

    LONG STORY short! the police acted wrong- they wanted the proof of it (the video I was taking)and were willing to lie and take down innocent people to cover their butts.
    They did not succeed.
    I was acquitted of all charges.

    I do not think all cops are bad- there are actually some really good ones, and some that I also call friend- I just know there are some who are and will do bad things on top of bad things to try and make themselves look good.

    I hope video can be found of this horrible event.
    I hope true justice is enacted.

    we need to stop putting people into boxes because of their race, job, economic status, gender, etc.
    we need to teach better lessons to our children and to all people.
    when all babies are born they cannot hold up their heads, cannot do anything without help and guidance. it doesn’t matter where, how, when, who they are born – it is how they are cared for and what they are taught. we have an effect and affect on the people around us. if we want to live in a good society then we must do good…
    anyway-

    look for video from surrounding stores —
    with a lawyers help, get the records of customer names (from credit card slips) who were at the place the night and time the incident occurred. Someone had to have gotten video and been smart enough to get out of there with it.

    what’s in dark will come to light.

      You must understand that this is the overall plan…to get us used to the police state which is well underway in formation. The police are being encouraged to act in this manner while intimidating the public into worshiping them. You can’t even cover your head with your arms without being arrested for resisting or assaulting an officer. This is the process of converting public servants into overlords and slave masters.

      The feds are militarizing the police and allowing those with lower IQs (and greater lack of judgement) to join the force. Many older officers can’t wait for their retirement to come up.

      Suing the force is one way to go, but suing the individual officers on their personal behavior may send a better message, when they don’t have the force and tax payers dollars to defend them.

        1) You “Heard” according to your own words, so you don’t currently have the undisputed facts.
        2) Care to elaborate on how the article was biased? I can understand a possibility of it being incomplete or misinformed, but I don’t see bias.
        3) As stated in the article, a girl of that size did not need a night stick to the face. There are a myriad of ways that officers can subdue unarmed criminals without using blunt force… a good reference is the situation with a naked, crazed individual in a San Francisco subway station that happened weeks ago, which you can find on YouTube. He was actually attacking people and was not approached with even mace. So if it turns out that this young lady was unarmed, regardless of what she may have done wrong, then these officers will need to address why she now has fake teeth.

    In the end there are always two sides to any story. Both sides are going to be affected negatively no matter how you look at this. Everyone is making this a racial issue. White or black neither side was right. If the victim had been white we wouldn’t be posting comments. If the victim had been white perhaps, for those that want to believe so, there might not have been a victim. White people get in trouble and are beaten, as many would say, by the police for the crimes they commit. If she truly hit the officer, it was a reaction to an action. Not that it was excusable, just that it happened. None of us here have the ability to judge. Who are we to know what the moment was like? There were many variables, I am sure. Overall, it is just a sad situation.

If you want to look at it that way; Some white women get raped also. But just because a white woman gets raped, doesn’t make me more receptive to being sexually assaulted.

        Well, European Colonist in America are amping their assaults on Africa people, so they will harm a few collateral whites meanwhile the overwhelming people who will be abused will be blacks. So the media will begin to show more black millionaires, blacks in the military who are married to whites. Because, these generation of whites will have selected blacsk they will protect while the disproportionately unemployed blacks,kill blacks and they will do so with a clear conscious because they have a “black wife”, “black husband” or biracial children. Whites and Blacks will work together to destroy the majority of blacks in America.

      Misty I don’t think that you understand the struggle that black people go through in the justice system. The justice system is geared to find black criminals, guilty or innocent. No white person will ever understand that they have privilege… white privilege. It is something that will only be clear if u walk in someone else’s shoes. The officer was wrong period… whether or not the girl did something illegal, which i’m guessing she didn’t, that is cruel and unusual punishment (unconstitutional). The first contact of the officer was wrong and that is all.

      What do you mean what really happened (with your honer student) The link you posted pretty much says the same thing with exception of the police statement which is pretty much useless until an investigation has been done. I was charged with assaulting police on several cases and charged with other messed up things like terrorism which all where untrue, I beat all charges by the way not that anything happened to the officers. You are obviously a hateful person that doesn’t like black people I guess because you are bombarded with propaganda from mainstream media trying to divide the country. I’m also guessing you never served in any useful military unit because you wouldn’t be so ignorant. Now you can either except the fact that not all black people are these horrible animals or you can stay blind and ignorant it makes no difference to me but if you start using your eyes and realize that not all people of a race do the same thing that a few do. The way you talk leads me to believe that you are ignorant, hateful, you probably had a poor upbringing, and you obviously don’t get around much, I’m guessing you have been to prison several times (I’m black never been to prison and). I love how you make an ass of yourself by trying to demonize another race lol you just don’t get that you are the horrible one, you are the menace to society, and I hope that if you don’t see the error of your ways you get locked up where you will belong. Oh yea something else for you to think about all of this racist BS you spout out about was designed by the elite in order to divide and keep people from recognizing what is really going on, KKK and the arion nations are all ran and started by CIA on record, look it up. Also why is it that only white men shoot up schools and commit horrible atrocities, Why is it mostly whites commit crimes against children and their families. The reason why minorities make up most crime is the fault of people like you that strive to keep us down, low income areas will always have the most crime if they had a chance they wouldn’t risk selling drugs to live, both white and minorities in poor areas commit more crime than the rest of the nation. Whites its mostly because you feel entitled because of your skin color and you hate, hate that useless emotion that in the end will make you unhappy and eventually kill you and thats your fault. Sorry for the rant I didn’t proof read so sorry for the spelling and sorry for the common sense truth that probably hurts but your probably used to it seeing as you see your self as a victim and love the pain, like a little Emo kid that cuts himself. Do you cut yourself while you cry about how blacks are ruining this country, then blame us for the reason you beat your wife and fantasies about sexing up your children only to shoot up their school, you know like most white people lol. I support individual thinking and the freedom of speech but I don’t support any one that will get in the way of taking back my country that you obviously don’t want to be apart of.

    @WizardG I went back through and read the rest of your comments. Again I do not agree with all of them, however I find most of what you say well thought out and well stated. I would love to correspond with you on these issues, I feel like we can both learn much from each others perspective, and its through that kind of communication that bridges are built.

    @WizardG (i was intregued by your comment and wanted you to actually see my responce)

    I have to disagree with you. I understand why you think the way you do, I just don’t think its so “black and white” (lol, sorry seemed appropriate). White people appear to be the most aggressive because we happen to be in power in most of the world for the last few centuries. However when you consider slavery for instance. The Dutch didn’t come to Africa and conquer and enslave the Africans, they came and paid money to other Africans to enslave themselves. It was cheaper and easier. The tribes in Africa were already in a continuous state of war with each other, they simply sold their prisoners instead of killing them. Enslaving blacks in America took on so fast and well because the Africans LOOKED so much different than the current WHITE slaves. How do you tell if a white guy in a population of white people is a slave? Well its kind of hard. The only reason white Europeans became the dominant race (and that’s such a poor choice of words but I don’t know of another way to put it) is because of the heavy metals (Imagine if one of the Zulus had access to iron…) readily available and because of the necessity of large organized communities due to the harsh weather in Europe. All this over time produced a series of powerful societies.

    Fast forward to the present. We as a nation have, little by little, starting in the 1930′s given away our liberties, so slowly that we didn’t even notice. The more power we give to the government the less we have for ourselves. Imagine if newly freed slaves were NOT denied access to guns in 1865, how different would our nation be?

    We can get along, all of us. Just watch little children play together, they don’t know there is a difference, mostly because there is not. People are taught to hate.

    The current bout of increasing police brutality stems from training the police are receiving and powers they have been given as a result of the “Patriot” Act. Bush started the ball rolling, but have you asked yourself why Obama doesn’t stop it. Obama SUPPORTS the “Patriot” Act!! Obama doesn’t care about the “black race”, he cares about the power HE gains by taking yours. Yes Bush and Bush and Regan, and practically every other president for the last 80 years is just as guilty.

    • AguyTHATwasTHERE

      July 9, 2013 at 5:25 pm

      Right around the time that Obama was grandstanding about the Trayvon Martin incident, this happened:

      http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/marine-veteran-kenneth-chamberlain-sr-killed-clash-police-responded-medical-emergency-article-1.1055569

      A 68-year-old black Marine veteran was killed by police after he used his Medic-Alert-type transponder to call for medical assistance. But you didn’t see Obama making comments about how “if my father were alive, he would look like Kenneth Chamberlain Sr.”

      Obama is just another puppet who exists to reduce the power of the people and exalt the power of the state. It is this “power of the state should be unquestioned and absolute” mentality that pervades “the system” at all levels, and enables drunk-with-power police to engage in this type of brutality. This attitude did not begin with Obama, but under his tenure it endures and thrives.

      Cue the ignorant telling me I just don’t like Obama because he’s black. I don’t like him because he’s a tool of the corrupt power elite, just like Bush before him, Clinton before him, Bush before him, Reagan before him, etc etc.

    While I am in no way ignorant of the abuse both blacks and hispanics endure on a higher level than most people in the US, I think it’s time to recognize that racism in and of itself is an issue that is exploited to keep us divided. How can we properly address issues such as police brutality when our only power as people are in numbers? We need to ban together in the community against this crap! It’s not getting better, it’s worse! Police abuse their powers on so many levels. Of course the police have no problem fanning the flames of racism so we can fight against each other. It’s a diversion. How do you think they control the prison population? How do you think racism began in our country? Divide and conquer… United we stand… These words hold deep meaning.

      Just because you know of someone does not mean you really know the real them, outside of what they portray. Why is it never okay to touch a police officer? And where is the evidence that she did touch the officer? And even if she did yank away or push away from the officer- that had no right to grab her in the first place- why is it acceptable for the officer to use that level of force and brutality in retaliation.

      This is increasingly becoming a police state, where those that claim to serve and protect only terrorize and abuse the very people they claim to serve.

        It is NEVER ok to touch a police officer because you will get the slop beat out of you just like this young girl did. After the first time the officers came to their table and was told they had nothing to do with the situation why did they come back to them again? Any black person that touches an officer during any confrontation is going to get the short end of the stick literally. Trust me I know, I work first hand with police officers.

          It isn’t ok to touch a police officer because you have assholes like that is get a little power and go crazy. There was NO reason for this to happen. This was bruit force and it was uncalled for. I won’t simply say it is racial profiling but I wouldn’t be surprised. That’s how it works in America. If you’re Black in America you get the short end of the billy club a lot of the time. Same goes if you’re any other minority or if you’re what the privileged deem “white trash”. Simple.

        The police state is accelerated by citizens that make excuses and justify felonious acts by police officers. How is it that a police officer’s peace, sanctity, and life is more important that any other person that chooses a different profession or career path? When did we, as a nation, start to place police officers on a pedestal and worship them as demi-gods?

        July 9, 2013 at 4:01 pm

        Vonnie,
        Great post!
        More and more, police officers who choose to use excessive force are being “called to the carpet” for their brutality.
        Right now, in my city, two police officers have been indicted for the death of a man where they used excessive force which resulted in his death.
        Thank God for cities where everything is captured on police video cameras from their squad cars.
        Speaking of which, where is the video of this scene? I would be willing to bet it did not get on the police cam– if Bloomington, IL has a police cam on its squad cars!!

        • Chuck

          July 9, 2013 at 4:26 pm

          Hi Gladys,
          It is a nice thing to see two officers being indicted for their actions. But the number of officers being indicted for their wrong doings and few and far between. Why is it that an officer has to be indicted because a police video camera caught them in the act of their criminal activity. I do not need a video tape to be able to tell that this young girl was criminally assaulted. Forget the fact that her two front teeth were almost knocked clearly out of her head, look at the scars on her face!!! Sometimes the video tape is not enough to bring an indictment to police officers. Can you say Rodney King?

    • BusterBalls

      July 9, 2013 at 3:12 pm

      Sure it’s ok to touch a police officer. Only when your face meets their hand… Oh wait, that’s wrong, that is what officers like these will say in court, (if theyy show up). “I broke my hand on their face” That would be considered “assult to a police officer, correct? BS!! Never rush a good thing… Revolution is inevitable!!

Me being white and my wife being black I will tell you anyone cop or not hits my little wife or child in the face with a night stick will have made a very bad decision and the consequences would be great. Maybe nshe isn’t a racist but you still can’t treat people that way. That is abuse off power and she should be fired

    • S

      July 9, 2013 at 3:31 pm

      Yes, that’s right. The mere act of slightly “touching” a police officer deserves getting your teeth knocked with a billy club to the face. How in the world can you seriously justify this action?

      So ur saying if I go up to a cop and tap him on the shoulder it’s ok for them to beat the hell out of me. Fuck no. They don’t have the fucking right to do that. That is not what I’m fighting for in the army. Those cops at least ivy deserves to lose her fucking job for what they did to that little girl. Cops don’t have that authority or right to do that. And I’m going to get a petition from all the soldiers around my base to get her fired. And how would u feel if someone did that to your child.

    • Gladys Davis

      July 9, 2013 at 3:49 pm

      K,
      Are you saying that the police brutality was justified because this student stated that she “jerked away” from an officer who she felt tugging her. She never said she looked back– that she felt the tug and instinctly “jerked her arm away.”

    • RackAttack

      July 9, 2013 at 3:53 pm

      NEVER use the word NEVER. Because you are wrong. Under many circumstances, you can legally defend yourself, EVEN against a cop! Even to the point of becoming physical – It’s legal (under the proper circumstances). …. So stop being a boot-licker thinking that the cops are ‘gods’ and are always right. If they are wrong, you have every right to defend yourself. — But be very careful & wary. Don’t forget, they are armed & usually come in groups – So you had better be absolutely correct or else you’ll face a long time in jail or worst. Also, even if the officer is wrong, it might just be best to go along with things and sort things out in court later “pick your battles.” – But don’t say that it’s “NEVER OK to touch a police officer” because that statement, is not only completely wrong, but also teaches people the mindset of being victims of “authority” — similar to how people became victims in Nazi Germany. My gosh, how wrong you are.

      It is never okay to lay your hands on an officer, but what you are saying is that the cop named, Ivy, was in the right to put that much force to a petite woman who was no way involved in the altercation outside the restaurant. You can say she isn’t racist but this article sure makes it sound like she is and for that I think all cops involved should be fired. Police brutality is happening more and more and something needs to be done about it.

      But it’s okay to smash someone in the face with a stick…? You may know Ivy but unless you were there you can’t speak on what really happened that night because if you’re confused and someone you don’t know is grabbing you, I’m quite sure you would panic too. None of us were there so it’s best we hold our tongues about what we know nothing about.

    • joshua

      July 9, 2013 at 8:39 pm

      Whether she is a racist or not, she’s a bad cop that abuses her authority. The girl didn’t put her hands on Ivy, she simply reacted to someone sneaking up on her and grabbing her by the neck. As a result, she is rewarded with the salty taste of her own blood.

      July 10, 2013 at 1:19 am

      It is Never OK to touch a cop, eh? Since when did cops become elevated to the status of gods or kings/queens? They are human beings, they can become corrupt. It is foolish for you to give them all such power, just because the ones you know are good, that a person cannot if they encounter a corrupt cop defend themselves. There are instances where corrupt cops have killed innocent people. They are not perfect or pure, they are human. To assume the court/ legal system, or your police system, or your government system, can never be question, cannot ever become corrupt, is immensely foolish. History is rife with examples of when such things had occurred and when that happened people suffered and even died. So sometimes it is necessary for a person to disobey or question an authority figure. To elevate them to an untouchable status is a path leading to disaster. Those who are corrupt will use that to their advantage.

The story seems that her “unnamed friend” argued with police, they escorted him out of there and then she started hitting the police to let him go. Soooo, the cover up this b.s story is doing doesn’t help us black people. She was fighting with police, now she wants money because she didn’t “do anything”.

      well i’m not black, but the idea that full grown male police officer would feel so threatened by this girl that she needed that kind of force to restrain her is ridiculous. i used to work security at a bar and we had fights all the time, but never ever was it even remotely necessary to hit a woman at any time; even though there were plenty of unruly drunk ones. anyway, we have a constitution… the police need to follow the law of the land just like we all do. i hope that this girl gets justice.

      Micah,
      What I see here is that you have just read more into the story than what was presented, and by the way, it was more than chipped teeth. The officer was not justified in her brutality and if the shoe were shifted and it was you instead or your family member, I am sure you would not think that “chipped teeth” was deserved.

      I am expected to believe the police who have a history of abuse of others and self-protection which means that such abuse is made more common are not covering up their actions that rest upon the presumption that a small college honor student acted far outside of her normal behaviors?

      The story of the officers seems far fetched on the face of it but as they had a Denny’s full of witnesses the truth will come out eventually and should it be revealed the officers are thugs and liars then it should be resolved by the officers serving solitary confinement for the next twenty years. Not only are they party to acts of violence but they choose to cover up their misdeeds and so betray the public trust and should be punished accordingly.

She said the police hit her in the mouth with their sticks yet her mouth looks completely fine. The only thing messed up is her teeth. A strike from a baton will swell up your entire face and bust your lips wide open. The only thing I see are a couple of scraps on her face. Article = BS….

    • Brock

      July 9, 2013 at 1:30 pm

      I think that introducing the police report as the “REAL story” demonstrates what is a pervasive problem in our justice system, which is to label the word of police officers as being more likely true than the word of others. The bizarre thing about doing so is that police have an obvious interest in being dishonest when they do improper things. Could anyone really imagine an officer filling out a report and admitting they struck a person unprovoked, or even that they accidentally struck a person in the heat on the moment? At the end of the day, we may never know the “REAL story,” but we can at least reach a better judgment about the truth when the case is brought to trial. Before that point, we are hearing from people, all of whom have an interest in selling a certain story. You really can’t just take Calhoun’s word or the responding officers. I will say, as a former Military Policeman, both soldiers and cops falsify reports to save each other, and it’s naive to believe it doesn’t happen. In fact, I was informally instructed during trainings in Illinois, Missouri, and DC on how to cover my ass, consistently told to protect myself first and worry about the report later. I will also say that even if Calhoun struck an officer with a closed fist, retaliating by hitting Calhoun in the face with a nightstick is not what that cop was trained to do. That is a lethal target. But again, in trainings where we were told not to strike the face with a baton, we were also told that if we do in the heat of the moment, tell a story in the report that justifies it.

      A conflict of SEVERAL HUNDRED people?? You’re kidding, right? That’s a mass riot, and I highly doubt that 21 police officers would be able to subdue a crowd that large and somehow manage to just sustain 2 minor injuries inflicted by one small female.

      While not all the facts may be clear as to what happened from whichever perspective, this article obviously is exaggerating the plight of the police.

      I also agree with someone else’s comment on this thread that the extent of force exerted is excessive, and a good strong arm or other restraining tactics should have been sufficient to subdue this female.

      You really can’t expect an employee of the restaurant to give you a story. Think about how she and/or the business can be harassed in retaliation. Years ago I reported a story after I was contacted by the victim of a vicious police beating at an all-night greasy-food place, and he said several cops put a whipping on him and showed us the pictures his friend took in the immediate aftermath.

      I got a couple of official police reports including a copy of their own internal report confirming it, but when I contacted the restaurant a couple times to speak with the night crew they admitted it happened but refused to go into detail.

Someone should have been using their camera on their phone, don’t understand this. There are a lot of police that have mental problems and yes they passed the mental exam, due to so many on the forces these days being relatives, friends, neighbors, they cover each others rear ends. You must learn to cover yours, use that phone for something other than running your mouth.

    I am not a Lawyer let me start there, but I do know the law. What it sounds like here is that you have yourself a 1983. To have a 1983 you must have three thing and in this case you have those things. First you must be a person or a governmental body which the officers are. Next they have to violate a clearly defined constitutional law which they did by using the force they did. Final you must be acting under the color of the law which they are because they are cops. I say file under 1983 because you wont have to pay your attorney fees the department or officers will have to pay those. You can also file a state torq law. which there must be four things to file this act which are the officers must show that they have a duty to the person which they showed once the officer put her hands on the young lady. Next you have to have a breach of that duty which the officer should once she used the amount of force she did. Next you have to have a cause which you do have because of the action of the officer cause the young lady to have new teeth put in and she was knocked consciousness. Final you have to prove harm. Which is easy to prove because of the young women injuries and the injuries can be minor or major. Which ever route your family decide to take you have a very strong case and the lawsuit can and should pay out millions to your family. I know its not about the money but if you want to stop things like this from happing you have to hit the departments where it actually hurt and that is their budget.

    This is nothing more than typical negro behavior. My family and I were sitting in that dennys when the gang of negro hoodlums came in.(honors students? yeah right! Punk ass niggers with a sense of entitlement is more like it. We knew trouble was amongst us. Of course they started acting a fool, throwing food, being disrespectful cunts. or..being typical negross if you will. They started arguing and posturing (like negroes do), with another table and soon it was a melee. For this boot lipped nigress to claim she was just sitting there minding her business,is outrageous. She was probably one of the worst offenders. You know how nigger chicks are, all loud and shit. just like them all. Its what niggers do, No wonder we avoid them! Anyhow, when the cops got there, she went outside and was yelling and threatening. Was told many times to calm down and “let the officers do their job”. she still was being niggerish, so the lady cop took her dumb, big lipped, weave wearing ass to the ground(turns out the nigger bitch wasnt anywhere as tough as she thought, as the female cop destroyed her with ease). hit with a nightstick??? come on nigger..no officer used a nightstick. That’s just more typical nigger bullshit. I covered my daughters eyes as this nigger mammy sows fat ugly breatesses were exposed. Of course the nigger bucks were all hooting and hollering(like they do). All of the above story is a bullshit lie, it never happened that way. The entire incident can be summed up easily: Niggers being niggers! And now, after the fact..they want to use the race card and play the victim! total BS. She got what she deserved.

      Dear wasthere2,
      It is so confusing that you and people like you love to highlight all the issues in the black community without talking about the cause of all the insanity. You maybe able to get away with talking to my brothers and sister whom are ignorant to who they are and who you are (their open enemy). I however know who you are and the what you have in your heart for my people. You say “No wonder we avoid them”, I beg your pardon. Who do you avoid? If you and ones like you want to avoid the black man and women of America it is not an impossible feat. Give Americas former slaves justice. Give us a portion of land that is mineral rich. Provide us with the necessary materials to become our own sovereign nation, and Let my people go Free. Then you won’t have to worry about trying to avoid us. But like I and you know, you don’t want to do that, because you and I both know your ancestors brought my ancestors her to do what they could not. It won’t be long after we have let you that you and your people will return to the savagery that you do love and desire.

        History says otherwise. Look at every crime infested community/shithole in this country? all have one thing in common..Lots of niggers!
        Now look at all cities that are led by niggers..as in, nigger mayors, nigger administrators..all shitholes with no economy. Now, lets look at countries that are ran by niggers..most african ones of course..all shitholes. South africa went to shit once power was given to the niggers. Lets face it, niggers are useless and cannot further a culture without white leadership.

      You are correct, that officers job, and every officers job, is “To Protect and Serve”. Police departments around the country have forgotten that.

      Lets just say for the sake of argument that the police had every reason to hold those kids, lets just say for the sake of argument that Gabriella was belligerent. An officer should exercise restraint in dealing with a 17 year old. There was no excuse for the beating she took. The officer who broke Gabriella’s teeth has a responsibility to the safety of everyone including those they are rightfully and lawfully detaining. That doesn’t mean they cant protect themselves or use deadly force when the situation calls for it, HOWEVER, I find it hard to believe this small 17 year girl needed to have her teeth knocked out.

      An officer has a higher responsibility for self restraint than a civilian.

      Lets say for sake of argument we take Zimmerman at his word (PLEASE PLEASE, I am not trying to start a Zimmerman/ Martian argument, just using his situation with his version taken as truth to make a point ONLY and not in any way stating one way or another any opinion on what’s happening there), he was doing his civic duty patrolling his neighborhood and exercising his 2nd amendment right to bear arms. Zimmerman was attacked by a 17 year boy. He used deadly force to defend himself. As a civilian Zimmerman has a more ley way in how he deals with a situation. An officer does not, an officer has, by choosing to take up the mantel of Protecting and serving, a great responsibility to protect and serve, even those who mean them harm. Zimmerman had the right to use deadly force because he felt his life was in danger, he has no responsibility to show restraint. An officer does NOT have the same ley way. An officer MUST USE THE MINIUM FORCE required to make the situation safe. MINIUM FORCE. The police have a tough job, but they also have a great responsibility. This officer failed.

        July 9, 2013 at 7:43 am

        “To Protect & Serve” those words no longer mean what they once did. I wrote a letter to the police chief of my town with a complaint about I’ve of his officers. In that letter I referred to the Protect & Serve manta we all know so well. This is the response I received back:

        “I have forwarded your “complaint” to the Patrol Command Staff. They will conduct an administrative investigation and review any materials relevant to your traffic stop. Although “Serve & Protect” may be a motto on some police cruisers, popularized in television shows, the phrase actually means “To Serve and Protect the State (meaning government’s interest).” Not necessarily applied in the manner that you suggested in your summary.”

        As you can see above, the police mentality has already become quite state oriented and had nothing to do with true concern for the citizens of any given area.

    The first mistake made was patronizing Denny’s. Denny’s has been sued by Blacks numerous times for racial discrimination. Denny’s needs to NEVER get another dime. Major problem for a long time is young Blacks don’t want to hear about these things from the grumpy, angry, militant older ones until the police do things like this.
    Withdraw your money from this institutions for starters. During the Montgomery Bus Boycott, it was the sustained commitment by us issuing a financial beatdown that no billy club could undo. We were not getting on those buses and spending our mmoney. What is so hard about this today. Denny’s doesn’t like Black folks. Take your money elsewhere.

There is a serious disease, called hate running through peoples minds. It is a sign of a defected spirit. These officers need help, mental and emotional help. Im all about loving everyone, so I can’t help but think about what could make a woman do this to another woman??!!! This breaks my heart so deeply. I want to know how I can help. How can we help? What can people do that feel so far away and helpless and with no real skills to make things happen in the government or law department. All we can do is keep speaking on it? Staying alert. Staying more connected to each other in our communities and preparing ourselves. Because its going to happen. SOmething is going to happen, something is going to break and bust open and we need to be ready. Soldiers of light, arm yourselves with love, and get tough if you need to. Praying for us all.

    The bloomington police are horrible humans. I’m an isu alum. And during my senior year my car got towed in the middle of the night from my own parking lot. Went to get it that night and was attacked by the guy that was there. I called the bloomington police who then told me that it wasn’t their problem. And that the guy hadn’t done anything wrong. And that I must have provoked him. That this guy was just trying to do his job. And that unless I was dead in the street there wasn’t any crime. The bloomington police just don’t give a fuck.

    As a former victim of racial injustice on more than one occasion, I can truly identify with what happened to our young sister. It is time to bring reform the legal justice system. We need a new law written and enacted that clearly states that if a person becomes a law enforcement officer and they violate the power of their position, that they will face a independent body of people that will have the ability to fire them from the organization they are working for, whether it is federal,state, local or rural. That this body of people will also be able to determine if they have committed an act that is criminal in nature and that their recommendation will be enforced by the district attorney’s office. Also a mandatory minimum sentence will be applied against any law enforcement officer that abuses their power and commits violent acts against anyone, their property or their pets. To many instances of police violence have gone on far to long. A stronger deterrent is needed to ensure compliance with what is expected of those that have sworn to protect and provide safety in the community. We need real changes, right now.

I would beat them too, just so they know how it would feel if something like that happened to their kids or family members. I would send everyone of their family members bloody and beaten to they doorsteps. These police officers in Bloomington Normal are always harrasing people and looking for reasons to lock people (mainly blacks) in jail.

These kids brought the fight from outside inside dennys and continued to fight and tear dennys to shreds! I mean they were on tables, counter tops..they grabbed knives and dishes and was throwing shit and everything! As far as her being attacked by the police…yea she was tackled by the female officer who took her straight to the ground…but it was becasue as soon as she walked out the door she started going ballistic on the policeman. .kickin, fighting and punching and everything. .it as then that the female officer tackled her to the ground…and hard. .I mean reallllly hard…Im not saying she deserved what happened but you would think young ladies know how to act as such…she lied about sitting by the window in dennys enjoying a meal with friends…this had nothing at all to do with race…it had everything thing to do with niggaz not knowing how to act. Niggaz meaning ignorant people and ignorant people can be black, white, purple or red…she just happened to be blac..I just feel like if ur going to pull the race card…use it when its appropriate. .smh #andiamalsoablackwoman

    July 8, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    First off, I’m a 34 year old white male.

    Second, all you black folks who are crying and complaining, get used to this! You asked for it and now you got it!!

    Now before I’m crucified for my intentionally inflammatory comment, let me explain.

    What happened to this girl is just SICK. More importantly its happening all over America. Not just to blacks, however MOSTLY to blacks. Racial profiling when PROPERLY used is a very effective tool in protecting the people. WHEN PROPERLY USED. If the suspect is a white female then you aren’t going to be looking for a black male! Its common sense. Its becoming more common to profile to repress a portion of the population.

    The “you asked for it” portion of my statement refers to (I’m probably gonna be crucified for this too) the fact that 99% of blacks voted for Obama. Obamas policies have done nothing but hurt this nation, blacks foremost among them.

    Obamas economic policies have beaten the already dead horse of the U.S. economy. I wont go into that.

    This kind of police brutality will continue to get worse. As we (and I mean ALL Americans) give up more and more of our constitutional rights we are more and more powerless to do something about it.

    WHO POLICES THE POLICE?

    The answer to that can be found in Amendment #2 of the Constitution of the U.S. Many of you may not heard of it before, its a little used and much forgotten document. The 2nd Amendment was written to ensure that the people never again feared their government. The 2nd Amendment gives the people to power to make changes. So we did what any sensible people would do, we gave it up. Understand this, the first gun control laws were written to keep newly emancipated blacks from owning guns. No government has ever disarmed a population to protect them, but to CONTROL them. Imagine if every one of those BLACK college students carried and knew how to use a gun… If you hear anything from this white guy, hear this PLEASE:

    GUN CONTROL IS BLACK PEOPLE CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Think about that the next time you look at that black man in the white house. The majority of people voted for Barak Obama BECAUSE he is black, and that is racist. The funny thing is people flocked to one man who wants to keep you blacks in your rightful place at the bottom and all but ignored a truly great black man, Herman Cain. Cain could have been the one to save this nation (and I honestly believe this, and my faith in Cain had nothing to do with his color) but the great Red hope Romney destroyed his reputation. That’s a true shame.

    Obamas new pet project is gun control. He wants all kinds of laws that restrict law abiding citizens (black and white) and do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO STOP CRIMINALS. Criminals don’t care if they are breaking the law. Gun control makes it so only the richest have guns and the poor just cant afford them. Who is the poorest population in America again? Oh, blacks… What happened in IL is an attempt by morons and cowards to maintain control in after new gun laws give SOME power back to the people.

    GUN CONTROL IS BLACK PEOPLE CONTROL. Remember that the next time you vote.

    I will be praying for Gabriella. There is ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO HER. I hope this site can keep us updated on her story.

        I suppose I should clarify, for the most part Republican’s, Democrat’s, same thing. I am a libertarian. I bashed Obama quite a bit, but I feel the same about Bush, Clinton, McCain, and every crooked greedy politician.

      July 8, 2013 at 9:55 pm

      So, Obama’s policies are a direct result of two police officers brutally beating a young woman? Are you okay? Did you smoke crack before you posted this comment? How can you say you feel remorse this happened, and then blame the color of her skin as a result of the incident occurring? If you want to vent about Obama’s policies or your agreeance with racial profiling, perhaps you should start a hate website or a debate forum. Otherwise, take your venom filled words somewhere else and let this young woman’s story be told. It’s clear you don’t care, genuinely, so I’m confused as to why you took the initiative to read the story?

You made attacks that every thing that happens is because our president is black. If this is such a horrific event why didn’t the world burn the day he was elected or re-elected? I feel sorry for who is filling you up with hate. Force for force this weaponless woman unless seriously kicking butt did not deserve to be beat like a warrior what are white people so afraid and jealous of that every black person needs full military force no matter what the circumstance. Why are all your defenses illogical meaning relating one thing to someones choice of being a jerk or a devil. The only thing to agree with other than this being wrong is guns from law abiding people because the criminals do not follow the law and we will be the only ones unstrapped. Even then laws can be stricter and people can be accountable for who they sell or give their guns too. Ignorance is a choice stop assuming we can not recognize reverse psychology by mentioning one thing we agree with, with a lot of things that are attacks against our race. Have you watched the news lately gun control/ hate a weird people control would be needed among many white people

              What you said clearly shows you are well informed. For the record I am black, and I did vote for Obama (I really didn’t want to vote at all for) but he approved policies that benefited my family and I. That’s the way of politics, you basically buy peoples votes. The majority of black people who voted for the pres. admittedly did so because he’s black. However what people in general fail to realize is that his control only goes but so far. He answers to someone in a higher rank just like we all have to answer to God one day. It’s pointless to bash Mike because you yourselves are misinformed and cannot understand what he’s saying. He’s not racist but simply sharing some truths for those who will wake up and listen. I do not agree with bashing “our leader” because we should respect them, but the truth of the matter is, Mike made an educated remark concerning the issue that was none biases nor was it racially motivated. Us black people need to learn what it is to love, which entails being slow to anger. Just read carefully next time before accusing someone of something they are not just because u don’t like or agree with what they said!

      You said: “you folks probably never heard of it but “The 2nd Amendment was written to ensure that the people never again feared their government.” I say you never read the 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment “protects an individuals right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home” It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose”. Stop lying.

        July 9, 2013 at 6:08 am

        My “you folks” comment was meant to be sarcastic and I apologize if it was taken otherwise. Sarcasm is sometimes poorly understood when written.

        Your understanding of the 2nd amendment is hugely incorrect. The second amendment has little to do with personal home defense. Read about the man who wrote the second amendment and why he wanted it there, the information is readily available, just google it. The 2nd amendment was meant as a check on government power. So YES it does mean I can carry what ever gun I want where ever I want to. The key word here is “bare” which is to carry or present, to have on ones person. The 2nd amendment has no qualifying remarks. One simple sentence. I respect your right to disagree, please respect mine. I have refrained from insulting you, please afford the same to me. We can disagree and debate respectfully.

You are speaking the truth and nothing but the truth. Those who disagree or are calling you racist just don’t want to accept the truth for what it is in plain sight. I, too, do not agree with what Obama has been doing since he has been in office, but then again I didn’t vote for him. Just because he is a black man doesn’t mean he is going to solve all our problems and make this government/country better.

      @Mike your comments are silly and simplistic! There are no “truths” to them as one commenter stated, they are simply unsupported opinions. You can’t name a policy President Obama implemented that will have protected those police if an investigation finds they where culpable of abuse. Voting or not voting for the President wouldn’t have made any difference in this or many other cases like this that happen all the time.

      You sound like an extreme conservative who gives Fox News sound bites the same reverence as scriptures. Most who agree with you react based on emotion and frustration afraid to go deeper to examine a complex problem that no President can solve.

      This is a problem of modern culture and ethics not politics! If Cain, Romney, McCain or any other Republican you may fancy was in office and the Senate, House, and Supreme Court were all majority conservative she would have still been beaten by the cops as other incidents like her’s take place everyday across America.

Whether I agree or disagree, you have made some of the most intelligent and informed posts on this forum. People are not understanding what you are actually saying. The only thing that is getting pulled from it is that you don’t like Obama because he is black, when in actuality nothing in any of your posts remotely said that. In fact, you are defending african americans when it comes to certain issues on Obama’s agenda. Seems to me that these people are the ones trying to make this a race issue.

        • anon

          July 10, 2013 at 3:19 pm

          Mike, I totally agree with you. I voted for Obama, not necessarily because he was black, but to keep Romney out of the Oval Office.I’ve always shared your sentiments on the gun control issue in this country. Research ‘Gun Buy Back Programs’, targeted at poor (minority) neighborhoods. The government is stripping us of our defenses to make us easier to control. Let’s not forget the NSA scandal and the drone war we are in. Obama is only answering to the causes that the mainstream political sphere wish to speak on, ie., Gay rights. In the wake of tragedies like Sandy Hook, his agenda of taking away our guns is justifiably supported by this same political sphere, meaning that your mainstream news organizations will not dare question Obama’s stance on this issue due to its level of controversy. What happens as a result? Criminals and cops are free to abuse the power that is allotted to them by their ownership of firearms. The way that this all relates back to poor Gabby? The head of the Oval Office is not doing his job to protect the citizens of this country. Spying on us and taking our guns will not protect us from the senseless acts of abused ‘authority’ that so often happen to people of the minority population. And like many others have stated, Obama is just another pawn on a long list of pawns carrying out the same agenda of weakening the populous. If the government can keep us ‘proles’ bickering with each other over the most meaningless things, as opposed to holding them accountable and demanding change, then I must say that we are on a fast track to Orwell’s 1984 dystopia.

      Obama’s policies only empower the government to commit abuses of power.

      I am a black American and I will say this. I can not stand Mr. Obama’s face due to his abuses of power and policies.

      I won’t argue with you and I will say this, I was pressured to vote for that …individual by members of my family but I did not because I knew he was not healthy for the continuation of America.

      All I have to say is how many scandals have the Obama administration been involved in? How many war-crimes has the Obama administration been involved in?

      I have no love, only hate for the Obama administration and current “American government” (but in quotations because I do not consider the government American by any stretch of the imagination).

    I sympathise with the young woman. Unfortunately, when she held the arm of the male the police were dealing with, she has involved herself in a matter that did not concern her. In a riotous situation the police will heighten their course of action. When they saw the young woman hold on to this male friend of her’s, the police officer probably thought she wanted to involve herself. We have to remember that the police are only human themselves. When the police are doing their job memebers of the public have got to stand back and let them get on with it. I hope this young woman’s experience is a lesson for all.

      Oh come on. Don’t be ridiculous. The police had no business harassing those people in the first place.

She/he didn’t have any business using force on this teen for no reason, and the officer that did it needs to be deal with cause it doesn’t make any sense to beat anyone like the way this child was beaten. I wonder how would any of the officers would act if that was to happen to one of their children.

        His policies and the policies of those that came before him have entitled the police to treat people this way. Its not just Obama, he is just the latest in a long line of criminals (yes, bush included). We give away our rights until the police can bully and abuse at will.

The part that we drop the ball is we don’t do anything about it. Where is the line of people standing outside the police station, standing out against the inhuman violence. If we as the community don’t speak out then how can we expect change or justice. What i have noticed is that this town is raciest. What happened to the Rosa Parks? Where has our VOICE gone? All it takes is for one to say “NO I WILL NOT GO.” Yes I am a white man married to a black women and i know that my baby girl is hated on because of that but she is the most beautiful, smart, and loving kid who does not deserve to be judged just by her skin color.

I have all the respect in the world for the Rev Sharpton and Rev Jackson but their times and methods have passed…We need new blood and new methods to deal with this ongoing problem of racially biased police brutality.

    No way in hell should police be allowed to come into some place, harass kids and them physically assault them! These cops sound like racist assholes who need to fired from the force!
    Police like that give all officers a bad name!

    Guys, while racial profiling is a very serious issue, it’s not just black people who are being violated by the cops. I do understand that certain races deal with police brutality on a more regular basis than others, but I think it is important to point out that people of all races are being brutalized these days. Police departments all over the country have gotten out of hand!

    It starts with the type of people they recruit and hire as police officers, and continues with the way they are trained. They generally find people of average intelligence, give them a badge and a gun, and tell them to be agressive! When they do actually get in trouble, they are simply suspended without pay. It’s time we as Americans collectively pass laws that hold our “peace officers” more accountable. They are supposed to be here to serve us.

    @ Omerta- The only f#&*^5g moron is YOU. Either you’re a typical white troll with nothing else to do or a sellout whose mind and way of thinking is below the gutter. If you are white and can’t stand to see or hear a Black person speak the truth, then get your ass off of this site. As I stated earlier to Desiree, it seems that everytime Black people speak their minds, white people always have to put their two cents into our conversation, and yes I said the words CRACKER and RACIST because it is the truth. If you have a problem with it too bad. Suck it up and move on. If you are a Sista and thinking in the ways of the white man or woman then you need a serious Black History lesson. Again there are a lot of us Black people that harbor prejudice, pass down from generations but at least we do have a reason to feel the way we feel especially when the hatred has been harbored towards us for no real reason what so ever.

    This brutality and the killing of our people at the hands of these White racist police officers both male & female isn’t getting out of hand it’s been out of hand from the beginning of time. But with out a doubt they are becoming even more blatant with their acts without any fear that they’ll be prosecuted. It’s as if they’ve secretly been told to go out and violate Blacks at every turn and they are doing that. Our worthless Negro politicians sit silent and do and say nothing while our people are brutalized senselessly. We must tell these worthless “Niggers” that unless they stand up they will be voted out. Arm yourself people and prepare to defend yourselves is all I can tell you. If one of these Whites kills one of your family members then it’s incumbent upon you to see that justice is done. Because you won’t get justice through the system. You must bring upon them violence 10 times greater than what was inflicted upon your love one. When they realize there is and will be a price to be paid they will begin to understand their actions have consequences.

    As Black people, we’re going to have to come to a realization that these people do not care about us in any way, shape, or form. The days of sitting down to talk out these problems in hope of finding some common ground has officially ceased. We need realize and understand the true meaning of sacrifice. Many of us are either afraid or just don’t want to make such a move. We really need to create a force solely built to protect our people but in order to make it happen we have to get our minds right spiritually and mentally. We’re all going to die someday but together as a people we can die fighting for our beliefs, the right to be Black and Proud, the right to live and go anywhere without KKKracker cops harassing us, and the right to defend ourselves against anybody and anything.

      Reggie: Who are you reffering to as “those people? the cops or all white people? Because, as I have heard many blacks group together ALL white people, that is not true. I know MANY whites that have guilt over what happened in this country (re:slavery) even though it wasn’t them themselves that did anything, it may or may not be their ancestors. First of all, I do not have the same rights as a cop. Second, I do not put down blacks, I see them as equals, I love black people. I love all races. But I don’t think the way to “win the war” is for all blacks to band together and single out all others, and stand up against the “white man”. I think as in every strong movement in history, their needs to be a united front, DIVERSE voices all saying the same thing, for the message to be heard. Whether you believe it or not, you do have comrades in this battle, and some of them, yes, are in fact WHITE.

    July 8, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    This is just Ridiculous! It makes me sick to my stomach. I believe every single word of what the victim says. Almost the exact thing happened to me 2 weeks before I graduated college in muncie, Indiana. Police were called to the restaurant I was eating at with friends after a show the college had on campus. At any given time at the restaurants in the community there are no more than 1 or 2 tables of blacks eating at a time. This day 90% of the restaurant was black. The management and staff was on edge. They were hypersensitive dealing with everything there. Some black guys I know were outside having a heated debate. no fight ..just talking to each other passionately…the Police were called. By the time the cops got there the individuals having the discussion were long gone. The cops started interrogating all black males on the scene. As I was leaving I saw that the police had my brother and his friend cornered at their car. They had no reason to be trying to check their vehicle and handcuffing them. Other than them being black just like the ppl,arguing, it wasnt right! The cops told everyone to go home and leave the scene which there was no scene other than the one the cops created. Because one of the guys being detained by the officers was my brother I asked one officer on the scene if it was alright if i stayed and just made sure my brother was ok as I am the oldest and I couldnt leave him like this. If anything happened I would have to be able to report it to my family. He said no get in the car..at which point I got in the car sat down rolled down my window and looked out of it. The officer looked and said “ddnt I say get in the car!” I said sir I’m in the car. I’m sitting down. You didnt say I couldnt look out the window…He then said “Oh yeah.” walked really fast to where I was and hit me in my chest, then tried to grab me. My natural reaction was to move to the other side of the car. My sister started screaming “Stop! What are you guys doing? He isn’t doing anything!” at this point every officer on the scene ran over to me..snatched me out the car. The proceeded to pound on me and hogtie me in cuffs. All while I’m screaming..”I am not resisting arrest..Please stop!” Which they didn’t. I was thrown in the car. On my ride home I asked the officers what I had done and why was I being arrested. Please tell me the charges. The cursed at me and told me to shut up. Once at the station I was thrown in a cell with guys who had been part of a drug bust. They asked me what I was their for..I was embarrassed to tell them..I dont really know. They said well it must have been pretty bad cause your bond is way more than ours and we were in a drug bust. I just shook my head. BeforeI was transferred to another cell I asked the lady what my charges were..she said aggravated assault and resisting arrest. I couldn’t believe it because I wasn’t aware of doing either one of those things.

    Eventually I was able to post bond and get out. But I had to keep driving 4 hours every few months to meet with the courts to try and fight the case. As i investigated and red the report I saw that the officers exaggerated the scenario. they stated I cursed at them and said “F*#&$ you and I dont give a s&$*(# about you and what you have to say. Which was ludicrous especially as I was heavy in the church and ministering and a gospel performer at the time..i didnt even use profanity. After almost a year and character witnesses the judge dismissed the case ..stating you don’t have a record, just graduated and have a job lined up…try to stay out of trouble. Money spent with no apologies or rtrn. The only real thing to show for it were the concrete burns on my face and bruises on my body and spirit.

    That was in 2001. That’s just one of the many incidences I have experienced. Its sad because when you aren’t in trouble or have not had interactions with law enforcement you don’t know proper police etiquette. It’s not taught or discussed. We act on instinct. The instinct when you are being chased or hit for no reason is to protect yourself or flee. When you aren’t told you are about to be arrested or spoken to civilly you act automatically. When you are abused for doing what you think is right what do you do? Now even as an adult I am nervous when officers come around. Even though I am doing nothing wrong I feel that if they look at me long enough they will find something wrong and I will have no defense. I have no right to dispute and stand up for myself as a man.

    My heart goes out to this young lady. ppl who dont know assume “well you must have done something.” Some cases ppl do. But in some we don’t. It’s just enough to be black in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Everything we think, believe, say, and do, can be recognized under the umbrella of our functional or dysfunctional, and very frail psychological makeup!

    We humans have a tendency, on a psychological level, to judge others by what our brains have accumulated, made logical, and therefore common, for our ‘personal selves’! What is wrong with that frame of thought, is that our physical and psychological make-ups are as different and diverse as our fingerprints, or DNA! On that premise, we can’t judge others according to what we ourselves think and do, because (no one) is built the same way physically, mentally, or intellectually! (Even unifying factors such as religious beliefs fail to control our fracture psychosis!

    The police are given a great amount of power to use against the average citizen, especially “citizens” who do not have the ‘safety-net’ of being famous, wealthy, or powerful! They (the policing agencies) have different priorities for the wealthy and so-called “whites”, than they do for us so-called “blacks”, whether we are wealthy or otherwise! Some people join the police forces, and/or military as a way of sustaining steady and/or substantial income. Others join because of the power and abilities this gives them over certain other people! In some cases there are ‘white policemen’ etc., who should not be on the forces because they hold very psychotic propensities towards violence, and some have been weened on racist ‘anti-black and brown’ behavior by family and peers.

    In conclusion. We all have a great many psychological disorders that will never be addressed, and every day we are subjected to the chances of various abuses, discrimination, and loss of freedoms by those who reign power over us and whom themselves, also have many nasty psychotic anomalies!

    The young lady in this story obviously had no previous contact with the type of ‘policemen/women’ who control the area she lives in, and the beating is her wake-up call! Maybe she will learn from this and begin a regiment of studying the history of this very violent and “racist” social-structure! If she is smart she will study psychology to help her understand just how frail the human brain is, and of the seriously negative and violent shortcomings of those all around her!

    It looks like black women are realizing that they are not in a more beneficial position as far as avoiding white supremacy. I remember when black women lost respect for black men in the Waiting to Exhale era. That’s when they became “independent, and didn’t need no man, and all black men are dogs,etc”. They threw us under the bus to gain acceptance from whitey in society and in the workplace. Now, it’s backfiring because whitey is revealing that he truly hates black women just as much as black men. Since black men have been shytted on by black women for decades now, the black woman has no one to turn to. This explains her being the most un-married and single demographic in the entire country. I’m not trying to be a jerk, but the negativity that they put out starting in the 90′s is coming back full circle.

Having done nothing wrong why would she have to assume or display a subservient character or attitude. The police are not masters,of blacks, they are inadequately train or have a false sense of security when it come to mistreating people of color. After all I would think Denny a member of the culture clash club.

Daily we are harassed, beaten, jailed and killed with no restoration by those who have sworn to protect. The courts rewrite our constitutional rights and then place judgement on us that taunts our livelihood under the heading of criminal background checks. Our President whom I voted for both terms resign laws that keep us slaved, oppressed and denied justice. So whats your solution? As to the young lady and her family stay encouraged.

    Hi Everyone. I am a white female, my boyfriend is African and I live with him and his family. I have been around Blacks my whole life, and am very well educated when it comes to racism, civil rights, laws (both legal and labor), and have a passion for social justice. To be honest, knowing what I know, I am not the biggest fan of cops. I first read this story and had the immediate reaction the probably most of you had- sickening feeling, another incident of police brutality, racism alive and well…so forth. But I have also studied the media and how the media spins stories and try to evoke emotional responses from readers. This situation may or may not have gone down they way it has been told. In the case that it DID, I don not believe the young lady did anything to deserve what happened to her. As the article states, she is petite, and excessive force was not needed to control her. On the other hand as some of you have pointed out, she DID touch a cop, which led them to use action against her. However, they could have used something non-lethal like pepper spray or something that wouldn’t get the poor girl’s teeth knocked out!!! As for Denny’s, I’ve never been, but I have definitely been to places and been the only white person and felt unwelcome, but never told to leave. I have seen police brutality and profiling first hand (being around minorities and blacks for a very long time) and have also experienced being hated on for dating a black man. But were not talking about that here, we are talking about cops abusing their power and racially abusing a young girl. In my opinion, this girl has EVERY right to sue that cop for every penny he is worth. I welcome your comments (:

      LYD, IN RESPONSE TO YOUR COMMENT, SHE DID NOT PUT HER HANDS ON THE COP, SHE SAID “OUT OF REACTION TRIED TO PULL AWAY”, THAT COULD BE INTERPRETED AS YANKING AWAY FROM THE COP PULLING HER BODY AWAY FROM THE COP “WITHOUT” TOUCHING THE COP. AND YOU AND I KNOW THAT – THAT CAN BE DONE. THE COP WAS ANXIOUSLY REACTING AND ABUSING POWER.

      • Lyd

        July 8, 2013 at 2:44 pm

        Ada- I completely agree with you. I have seen cops abuse their power many times. Come to think of it, I hardly see cops acting in the RIGHT way. When I was dating a black male when I was in my early 20s, we were in a heated argument outside of a bar on a side street, I was against the wall, and he was standing infront of me. He had his hands on either side of me, and we weren’t yelling but because we were both drunk we were “passionately arguing”. After about 5 mins, 2 squad cars pulled up and shined their lights on us, and got out, and asked “mam, are you ok” little did they know, the guy I was with was my boyfriend, I was safe, and ok. I took my bf’s hand and said to the cops, yes Im fine, this is my boyfriend, and holding his hand we walked away. Now, let me ask, if my boyfriend had been WHITE would 2 squad cars have pulled up??? I think NOT. I am damn sure that someone reported something like “black male assaulting white female” or something like that, without even thinking that jeez maybe just maybe we were a couple just having an argument!!!!! Both of us were pissed, but he told me that kinda thing happens to him all the time. It was just so sad to me.

      Lyd I understand where you are coming from (seeing profiling, being around African descent people) but unless you are African descent you have no idea what it actually feels like, because I was beaten by police in my home in front of my children while begging them not to harm a mentally ill family member, but was grabbed by the neck and thrown down and pepper sprayed by a 6 ft officer, while I stand 5’7 135 pounds. I was taken to jail and charged with felony battery ( first offense), because I struck back.After leaving jail the next day to return to my home with all of the ides on my stove turned on and if I had stuck a match my entire home would have been in flames with me and my children in it.

        Lesa- I may not be black or have been a victim of direct racial profiling, but I have been a victim of discrimination. I am myself, legally disabled due to mental illness, also considered myself bisexual until I was about 21 years old, (and have had a girlfriend), I also grew up in a church called the Unitarian Universalist (wont explain it here, look it up if you want to know more…) in a town that was 99% catholic, and I didn’t grow up with a lot of money, and was made fun of for that. I’ve been a victim of bullying as well. So, even though my illness isn’t visible like being black or latino or asian, when people DO find out that I have a mental illness, I get stigmatized and its harder to find jobs, date, and believe me police do not treat you better just because you have that “excuse” they actually treat you worse, like you are some “crazy” person. What’s most difficult is I feel I have to keep it a secret. I know for minorities, they cant keep it a secret, so I guess I have it better. But at times I have to let it out, like applying for apartments and jobs, and when I do, I face discrimination. It sucks that people judge people, and I hate it. And a lot of people say, really this is 2013 we shouldn’t be living like this anymore..but to me, seeing racial profiling and brutality, seeing people still fighting for their rights, I just dont see things changing anytime soon. People are afraid of what they dont know, whats different than them. If you dont fit the “mold” then you are a target. By police, by “normal” people,and by the government. So many people say we made progress by voting in a “Black” president, but people seem to forget- he is half white!!! And he is just a puppet for the democrats and capitalists just like all the rest. They are not for the poor, they are just serving their corporate interests.

Your comment was SO ignorant, and clearly you have a problem with ALL white people, even ones that stick up for BLACK and other minority rights. For your information, the black guy I am f***** in your words (who ive been with for almost 3 years) is African not African American, and he can’t stand Black Americans!!! So why don’t you get off of your high horse, and when someone whatever race they are is willing to fight for equal rights and cares about other people, deal with and appreciate it.

    Gabby, I am so sorry for the horrific actions that you incurred by the police in Bloomington. It was completely uncalled for. While many officers do their job the right way, there will always be those few who feel that they, themselves are above the law. I hope that you recover from your injuries and that time will help heal the unseen wounds. Be brave and stay strong and continue on with your education and life to the fullest. My prayers are with you and your family, and I hope that the officers are brought to justice and made to pay ten fold for their actions. God bless you!

    One of the problems today, is that we desperately want to believe we are in some ‘loving, post-racial world’…there is a fine line between naivete and stupidity! Even our President needs more security than the previous President!
    So, these young adults had better start teaching these children how to behave around “cops”
    …especially since most of these cops hate having a black man as President, and guess who they will take out their hatred on??!!
    We need to go back to some old school “survival” skills, because it is obvious that this new-age thinking of “do what everybody else does” is not working for us!!
    Hopefully, the NAACP and or Legal Defense Fund can take up this case! This is something they need to do, instead of just giving out ‘awards’ to rap artists.

      @Dee2. I understand how you would feel the need to say “our president”. I beg to ask the question “Have you ever read the whole truth about “black” history”? If you have, you may remember the part about the ‘black overseers’ who gladly served their masters by abusing those who rebelled against “the master”! That is what Mr. Obama is! How could he not be? It would be completely naive to believe that powerful “whites” would give up their reins to a “mulatto” without having him in their early equation of schemes! Sure, there are many whites out there who don’t understand that Obama is serving the ‘elite whites’, but they are the ignorant minions with a lust for hate and racist abuse implanted into their whole way of life! Mr. Obama is protected by the ‘elite 1% whites’ because they chose him to serve their ‘numerous purposes’!

      As for the ignorant abuses of the lower class and working class whites. We (blacks) will always be a major focus of their numerous abuses!

    To Desiree: It seems that everytime when Black people speak their minds as to what is going on and what needs to be done, you (white people) always tend to put your two cents into the debate talking about how there is racism in all groups and how we should come together as one. one word for that, BULLSHIT! Truth be told Black people do harbor prejudice, but at least we do have a reason to be prejudice. with all the racism that’s been harbored at us for centuries don’t you dare sit there and try to turn this on me as misguided. I am very much aware of the problems facing my people. the only misguided fool here is you with your reverse racist tactics, and as far as disregarding the color barrier I will never put my ethnicity to the side to please a group of people so that they can continue to spread their disease of hating, controlling, and taking over everything that they (you included too) can get their hands on.

White people created our problems, blame us and come with the private solution – MASS INCARCERATION and a CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT. . .

Denny’s is notorious for their racist practices (as I know firsthand from my OWN experiences!), and no Black person regardless of social status is welcome there!! Just ask the 4 Black Secret Service agents about their incident at Denny’s in D.C.
    Secondly, we can scream for justice all we want….it’s not gonna come! The best scenario we can hope for is a successful lawsuit, and even THAT doesn’t come from the police, but rather an additional burden on the taxpayers! This is why the police think they can get away with this!

      Reggie — I think, in part, you are misguided. Being a “cracker” myself — from reading this story, I too can see how blatently wrong the police were and that they clearly abused their power. And, had I been there, would have stood up for this young black girl when she couldn’t. So, what you are misguided about is that you think that the majority of whites are out to harm the black community. Not true at all. There is bad in every race, religion and creed; just as there is good. And, what it boils down to is that all good people must stand together for what is “right,” and disregard the color barriers. However, it has to happen with one person at a time changing their mentality on the matter, and when it does, we can then truly be the “United” States of America as God intended, and begin to live with peace and understanding.

        @Desiree- the story clearly states that no other ethnic groups were ordered to leave except BLACKS. Why didn’t someone from another ethnically intervene in this young woman’s plight? I have a better suggestion; the NAME and HOME ADDRESS of that bitche cop should be posted online with a bounty attached. Fear is a mental obstacle that AA’s must overcome. These crooked pigs enjoy the luxury of being ‘Above The Law’ therefore, we must go outside the lines to seek justice.

      • WizardG

        July 8, 2013 at 2:20 pm

        @Desiree. I love your black and white speech, and I want the same, but I have come to the conclusion that humans as a whole are so insane that it is impossible for them to stop harming each other no matter what color we are. The human brain is powerful, but at the same time frail and open to all sorts of suggestions and external influences.

        I’m called “black”, but I only refer to that as a quick referencing word. I am ‘African American’ but it’s easier to say black because “whites” have given us, and the world, that color scheme!

        Whites are the most aggressive and violent humans in our species or “race” if you will. This is why the world is being plundered by them, (now with our help) and this is why they (many) believe themselves superior to every other human on the planet!

        I think that one of the worst problems we humans have, is that as we progress and learn from science and technology etc., all the while we, (most of us), keep one foot in the ignorance of superstitious ancient ‘dark-ages concocted’ religious “God” beliefs! Because of this, many of the most illiterate and ‘retarded’ among us follow these writings created by those early insane, retarded, and superstitious men, to conduct ourselves, our beliefs, our rationalizations, our emotions, and our desires etc. This means that as we move into the vast logical future and (some of us) learn great things that refute religious beliefs altogether, many of us continue to keep that one foot stuck in the dark-ages via ancient religious beliefs, and ‘they’ will continue to plunder, abuse and murder each other at an even greater more highly technological rate! It is totally insane for humans to move forward in the brilliance of science and technology, while staunchly (and sometimes violently) holding on to the rantings of those ancient lunatics and diabolical schemers, (that we have only been told about by others)!

        What is absolutely ‘phenomenal’ or mind blowing (if you will) is how the common people are unable to see this!

        Many Europeans whose families have long been in positions of power, have relied upon religious beliefs to accommodate their psychotic urges to plunder, gain ‘hoarded’ wealth, and steal land, resources, and freedoms from billions of unassuming humans on the planet! I understand how they would continue allowing the promotion of ancient beliefs because it makes it easier for them to manipulate, control and brainwash ordinary people of the world! I think that such focus on ancient superstitious beliefs and scientific contradictions, blocks the human brain (in most) from the ability to see the full prospective of reality, and thwarts the ability to fully use logic to any ‘necessary’ strengths!Therefore we are locked into a battle between heathen ancient thinking, and present and future scientific/technological knowledge and achievements. Which means as long as we are caught between these two states of thinking we are then destined to continue hating, abusing, and annihilating each other!

        • Mike

          July 9, 2013 at 12:55 pm

          I have to disagree with you. I understand why you think the way you do, I just don’t think its so “black and white” (lol, sorry seemed appropriate). White people appear to be the most aggressive because we happen to be in power in most of the world for the last few centuries. However when you consider slavery for instance. The Dutch didn’t come to Africa and conquer and enslave the Africans, they came and paid money to other Africans to enslave themselves. It was cheaper and easier. The tribes in Africa were already in a continuous state of war with each other, they simply sold their prisoners instead of killing them. Enslaving blacks in America took on so fast and well because the Africans LOOKED so much different than the current WHITE slaves. How do you tell if a white guy in a population of white people is a slave? Well its kind of hard. The only reason white Europeans became the dominant race (and that’s such a poor choice of words but I don’t know of another way to put it) is because of the heavy metals (Imagine if one of the Zulus had access to iron…) readily available and because of the necessity of large organized communities due to the harsh weather in Europe. All this over time produced a series of powerful societies.

          Fast forward to the present. We as a nation have, little by little, starting in the 1930′s given away our liberties, so slowly that we didn’t even notice. The more power we give to the government the less we have for ourselves. Imagine if newly freed slaves were NOT denied access to guns in 1865, how different would our nation be?

          We can get along, all of us. Just watch little children play together, they don’t know there is a difference, mostly because there is not. People are taught to hate.

          The current bout of increasing police brutality stems from training the police are receiving and powers they have been given as a result of the “Patriot” Act. Bush started the ball rolling, but have you asked yourself why Obama doesn’t stop it. Obama SUPPORTS the “Patriot” Act!! Obama doesn’t care about the “black race”, he cares about the power HE gains by taking yours. Yes Bush and Bush and Regan, and practically every other president for the last 80 years is just as guilty.

      Your comments will get someone killed if they followed.

      I believe 1/2 of the young ladies story, you know as well as I the story has been embellished.

      Most in this line of comment don’t seem to have any respect for the cop’s, that’s your 1st mistake. You should know and understand what they are and how the are trained to react in a given situation, you should also understand they can and will shoot you! These things happen to us most often because we don’t understand basic protocol.

      When the nameless young man told the cops for the 2nd time they were not involved was a error. (if the cops were clearing the Denny’s you get up and follow their direction, (I told you we were not involved) is not the right answer.

      When Gabby grabbed the nameless young man she placed herself into the fray, if she or someone else pushed hit or even touched the cop, it’s on!

      You can go to jail for even touching a cop!

      We often operate from a emotional level rather than from logic and knowledge and it get us into trouble all the time, the confrontation with cop’s only seem to happen in communities with a population of of people with lower information levels, Gabby may have been a honor student, she however clearly had know understanding of how to react or interact with the police! 17 young people coming into the restaurant and another large group already outside fighting, then it all comes inside??

      A more knowledgeable person, someone with greater worldly experience would have a handled the situation quite differently and would not have been hit or taken to jail!

        There wasn’t a large group outside fighting. It was only 2 white females fighting outside. One was maced.

        That young girl didn’t do ANYTHING wrong. She had every right to be concerned has to WHY they were taking her young male friend outside. Gabby knows that usually young black men are shot down like dogs for no reason. She was afraid for him.

        Don’t try to put this off on Gabby or her friends. I’ve seen MANY large groups dining in Denny’s with no problems whatsoever! So, are you saying that black groups (young – old – or whatever) are no longer welcomed in Denny’s?

      • WizardG

        July 8, 2013 at 3:01 pm

        @Oneplus one. We humans have a tendency, on a psychological level, to judge others by what our brains have accumulated and made logical and common for our ‘personal selves’! What is wrong with that frame of thought, is that our physical and psychological make-ups are as different and diverse as our fingerprints, or DNA! On that pretense we can’t judge others according to what we ourselves think and do, because (no one) is built the same way!

        The police are given a great amount of power to use against the average citizen, especially those who do not have the ‘safety-net’ of being famous, wealthy, or powerful! They (the police agencies) have different priorities for the wealthy and so-called “whites”, than they do for “blacks” whether wealthy or otherwise! Some people join the police forces, and/or military as a way of sustaining steady and substantial income. Others join because of the power and abilities this gives them over certain other people! In some cases there are white policemen who should not be on the force because they hold very psychotic propensities towards violence and some have been weened on racist ‘anti-black’ behavior by family and peers.

        In conclusion. We all have a great many psychological disorders that will never be addressed, and every day we are subjected to the chances of abuse and loss of freedoms by those who reign power over us and who also have many psychotic anomalies!

        The young lady in this story obviously had no previous contact with the type of ‘police’ who control the area she lives in, and the beating is her wake-up call! Maybe she will learn from this and begin studying the history of this very violent and “racist” social-structure! If she is smart she will study psychology to understand just how frail the human brain is, of the serious negative and violent shortcomings of those all around her!

In training she knew the street beat wasn’t for her. She stated “in saving one black life would get her killed”. And because of that she has been working in a juvenile facility changing one life at a time. . Wizard is so right about our thinking and denial/placing blame to do wrong is just plain out of order.

    I HATE ALL POLICE. I would never consume any of Denneys’ greasy, laced with spit and boogers food. I bet she won’t be going back there any time soon either.

    Such a shame. This is why I am so protective of my children. It’s not them I am worried about, it’s the other people in the world.What’s makes this story worse is that the ones acting a fool weren’t arrested. May God have mercy on us all!

    If the gangbangers would just stop killing their own people and aim those guns directly at these racist bastards and bitches we can be in a better position to let these CRACKERS know that we as a people are not having it and will not have it.

      many white police have the savage spirit in them and remember, you cannot assume their kind will be doing things for a civil manner, The priority to bring detrimental episodes into black life is high on their list. They are not evolved to the point of helping humanity and harmony ring. That’s why they’re hired in the first place. Only Whites that have evolved somehow will be the better examples.

    whoever this female cop is she should be found and beat in a much worse state and then death will become of her as well as her racist male counterparts!

    These abusive cops are cowards, abusers and crminals with badges. She should report this to the news stations,the NAACP, Internal Affairs, and a lawyer.

    Since reading this story, I have come to the conclusion she made the first mistake by reaching for her associate. The female cop only saw what she wanted to see in her own legendary mind and reacted because it was what she had been waiting for, for a long time and that was to beat some one who may resemble the person that beat her behind back in high school and Gabby was the victim this time. Rest assured, nothing will come of this because the cops will cover each other’s behinds with believable LIES!
    At least as far as the department is concerned. You might need a Barry Mason, not Perry but Barry!
    I’m just saying.

      You are right on point BigPoppa!!! This “tramp” probably NEVER had a date in school, did not get invited to any school dances/activities, a no show at the proms, now she has a badge, gun and night stick that she will use to beat the hell out of anyone (black girls) who remind of her those dreadful years. Police officers are the absolute most incompetent people in the work place!! Nothing will come of this–the courts will side against this girl and all for the cops!!

    @Jazmine, Sheila and Kim: Larry’s comments in no way denigrates the illegality of what was done to Gabby. Rather it is practical advice, albeit somewhat undiplomatic. The reality is that there are savage/rabid cops out here looking for anyone to take their insecurities out on. Teenagers are ill-equipped to confront this and as you said, even adults are not equipped to deal with this. So rather than get involved physically, we must advise our young people to keep a cool head, make notation of everything that they see, memorize badge numbers, get store owner and witness information, and then immediately notify agencies such as ACLU, newspapers, church leaders and congressmen. Although some revolutions are spontaneous, most are organized. The right time will come; rest assured.

    I pray that this young woman doesn’t allow this incident to make her bitter, but to become an advocate against police brutality. I know from my own personal experience that the police leave a LOT to be desired, from a lack of morals, ethics, and straight up racists. I’m praying that this incident isn’t going to be swept under the rug, but publicized. With media and public scrutiny, hopefully a change will occur in the police department there.

      I agree with you Frankie!!! 100% And just like some white people are tired of everything being a “race” card! I am tired of some white people saying what they say when they have not experienced racism! They are not automatically racially profiled and do not have to be concerned about ill treatment. I am not condoning the girl’s actions but how she was treated was the problem~ That is what needs to be addressed and the fact that they made all the black americans leave the restaurant is evident that it was racially motivated. This is 2013 nevertheless racism and prejudice still live.

    As reading the article, she was not fighting. She left Denny because of the fights. The cop should not have hit her with the ‘bat.’ I feel sorry for the young lady. Her family must contact the Police Department about their daughter.

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH CAROLYN PERRY. AND I WOULD TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER BY CONTACTING THE INSPECTOR GENERALS OFFICE IN WASHINGTON, DC AND THEY IN TURN WILL BRING IT DOWN TO THE STATE LEVEL. AND I WOULD ALSO GET YOUR LEGISLATORS INVOLVED HERE TOO. I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY, BUT IF I CAN BE OF ANY ASSISTANCE PLEASE CONTACT ME AT hhcocc@gmailmail.com GOD BLESS TO OUR YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE INVOLVED HERE.

  230. Zandra

    July 8, 2013 at 9:15 am

    The cop that attacked her, should have problems by beating down a young lady who was not fighting. I know her Mother will get it straight. My prayers to the young lady and her family!

    Larry is right. His comments cannot help Ms. Calhoun in this case, but can help her and us in the future. If we had our own restaurants to patronize and we lived in our communities, events like the one that happened to Ms. Calhoun would greatly decrease. We would also learn to love, trust, and rely on one another more. Wishing/Praying that places like Denny’s and the local police would change their inner feelings about us is a waste of time.

    This is so sickening and all you can do is wish her well? Blacks in America have morphed into a spineless apathetic set. Malcolm X, Stokey Carmichael and the likes must be turning in their graves. This is a promising young woman whose life is now tarnished not to mention the emotional scars. Had she been my daughter the offending officer, her cronies and the state would be getting a strong dose of retaliation…ya’ll need to wake up and grow some balls…

    July 8, 2013 at 9:02 am

    TO MONTANA CALHOUN PLEASE CONTACT THE ACLU IN THE STATE OF ILL. THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO HELP YOU. ALSO CONTACT THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS DIVISION AND FILE A COMPLAINT. THIS IS BECOMING AN EPIDEMIC AND IT HAS TO STOP. ALOT OF THE COP NOW HAVE ISSUE THAT NEED TO BE DEALT WITH. AND WHY DIDN’T SOMEONE RECORD THIS WITH THERE PHONE SINCE THERE WAS 17 OF YOU TOGETHER. GOD BLESS AND I HOPE EVERYTHING WORKS OUT. THERE ARE GOOD COPS BUT THE BAD ONES ARE TAKING AWAY FROM THE GOOD ONES.

    July 8, 2013 at 8:40 am

    The comments you see under tragic stories are stories in them selves. Ask you can clearly see African Americans are never the problem, the people with the problem are the problem. If she would have been a women who could properly defend herself then she would have been ghetto or the suspect. The world so damn backwards nothing even matters, no laws, no trials, no nothing everybody doing what they want, to be honest the people in power are the problem we just the distraction. The devil had us on a string what people wouldn’t do for the finer the things. Anyways back to this trust nobody

    Gabby you have my deepest sympathy and I pray that you will recover and continue with this case, because the police are out of control and the unnecessary abuse must stop!! they are in violation of their oaths and Bonds… these police are not doing their jobs they are attacking and killing the citizens and its because the police are a private agency… pursue and keep fighting because there are remedies to all of this madness…

    Moral of the story: Keep your mouth shut and stay in your seat, black teenagers. You are not free! In fact, the police are afraid of you! The FREEDOM WAR, which began in 1619 is still ongoing, despite the Civil War, despite King, and despite Obama. Remember that in selecting your “friends” and your “locations”

    • kim, Bey

      July 8, 2013 at 8:33 am

      Larry you are just as much as chattel property as any of the black teenagers that you speak of, you have no rights either and you too are a slave to this government and you most likely are a immigrant and or and illegal Alien, what is your nationality and what race are you and what is your Status, again most likely you have none. Please stand down from your unnecessary ranting about keep your mouth shut because again the moral of the story is you can get it just as she did… Peace

      Hey Larry, Its always essential to spread words of wisdom and enlighten for the better of those who are around to hear or read them. In no way, shape, or form was your comment remotely enlightening, nor helpful to the well being of gabby, I’m glad Kim said something as well folks like you should he banned from using computers. Some just can handle free will. So here’s a little advise for you ” keep your mouth shut and stay in your seat “

      Larry u r just as ignorant as the officers that did this 2 her. I hope justice is served on them cause they had no right. All the racism that still exists today makes no sense and pretty soon we all will b judge by our actions according to God. So watch ur mouth and what u have 2 say about the situation.

      I wish it was that easy. I lived in Champaign, IL and felt like it was the 1960s south. I was standing a few houses from my house having a conversation with my White neighborhood holding my 4 year olds hand. Four police parked their cars and aggressively approached me (a teacher for the district) and accused me of being involved in a kidnapping. I thought is was a joke. They started asking me about the child I was with, which was my daughter. Come to find out some deranged relative took a 4 month old. My daughter was four years old. I actually saw demons in those officer’s eyes. don’t think that hate is only toward us. Hate is demonic and it does spill over into other parts of their lies.
