WTF over-zealous police? - Page 202

post #3016 of 6081
Hypothetically they could have walked up to Mr Blake, mentioned they were police officers and asked him for identification because he was suspected of a crime. And not tackled him. But eh. Why not needlessly escalate situations?

Cmon Ataturk.  Just admit the police screwed the pooch by

  1. Not doing any research on their target(s);
  2. The way they apprehended Blake and;
  3. Defending their gawd awful mistakes

I don't make up my mind without knowing the facts. Why do you feel like you have to decide what happened here based on a couple news reports?

For all we know, they said, "This is the photo the scammer gave us [we pulled from his facebook page, whatever]. It's probably of someone else so he can't be found by it, but he'll look enough like it to try to pull off the scam."

I'm not "inventing" facts, you jackass [and I mean that in a friendly way]. I am pointing out what you don't know.

Lawsuit Claims Authorities Let Man, Serving Time for Ticket, Die in Macomb Jail

A federal lawsuit filed in March alleges that David Stojcevski, 32, of Roseville, who was serving time for failing to pay a traffic ticket, died in the Macomb County Jail last year after serving 17 days as result of neglect on the part of guards and medical staff, WDIV reports.

Stojcevski was charged with obstruction of justice as part of careless driving charge. When he failed to pay the $772 fine last year, the judge sentenced him to 30 days in jail.

Kevin Dietz of WDIV reports that the man lost 50 pounds in 17 days and was in a high-observation unit and the cell was under 24-hour surveillance. A videotape shows his body twitching, as he goes into drug withdrawal, lying on the floor naked, and nothing was done. Prisoners in that unit can't wear clothes for their own protection.

The family lawsuit states that Stojcevski had been seeing a doctor to beat addiction and had been prescribed methadone, xanax and another medication. Without these drugs, the body can go into severe withdrawal, Dietz reports.

Dietz reports that a nurse evaluated him and recommended he be placed in a medical drug detox unit. Instead, he was put in a jail cell. Six days later, he was acting erratic and moved to a mental health cell and put under suicide watch where his activities were under video surveillance

Near the end, before he died, he was visibly thinner and no longer had the strength to call for help, Dietz reports. In his final two days of life, Dietz reports, Stojcevski never got off the cold cement floor in his cell and was gasping for his final breaths.

Dietz says in his report:

It is a hard thing to watch a man die, especially when it could have been prevented.

WDIV's medical expert, Dr. Frank McGeorge, who has been classified as an expert in custody death cases, tells Dietz that there is no reason for an incarcerated person who was watched for this period of time to die in custody.

"He should have had medical attention," McGeorge says.

"People do not die from withdrawal all the time," McGeorge says. "They die from withdrawal when there is neglect associated with it."

The Macomb County Sheriff's Department, which runs the jail, declined comment because of the pending litigation, Dietz reports.

Death penalty over a traffic ticket in a debtors' prison. Quality work, pigs.

To quote Javier Bardiem, "If we are to have a Falcon, we must have a Turk to balance the scales."

You can't die from starvation in 16 days, and heroin withdrawal only lasts a week or so. So what is supposed to have killed him?
post #3028 of 6081
Clearly he's just playing possum.
post #3029 of 6081
Forgive me for not believing something that sounds like utter horseshit just because someone alleged it in a lawsuit.
