You won’t see Michael Marshall in his jail death video because his body is obscured by five deputies killing him

 

 
DENVER, COLORADO- Never mind the video showing the in-custody killing of trespass suspect Michael Marshall, says Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey, “Most of Mr. Marshall’s body is not visible in the majority of the video footage after he is taken to the floor because the deputies bodies’ block the view of the camera.”

That’s right, it took five sheriff deputies to keep the 112 lb. Marshall floored. “He was surprisingly strong” said one of the deputies, which is the same compliment deputies paid to Marvin Booker, another 135 lb. 50 year-old African American man whose schizophrenic episode was treated with a lethal dose of dispassionate elbow grease.

The Denver DA announced today he had no plans to prosecute the dentention center deputies for Marshall’s sudden involuntary release from confinement. The DA ignored terrifying details from the earlier coroner’s report but adds previously unknown facts which will be revealed when the video is made public later this week. He reports that “OPN devices (nunchucks) were used on Mr. Marshall’s ankles” and “a leg chain was placed on his lower legs.” Michael Marshall “struggled on the floor for over 2 minutes before he went limp.” and it took deputies 13 minutes and 20 seconds before Marshall was placed into a restraint chair where nurses discovered he wasn’t breathing.

Ignored completely are the damning details listed by the medical examiner: the blood in Marshall’s lungs and pulverized muscle tissue consistent with beating.

Instead Morrissey concentrates on aspiration as cause of death. Did it cause Marshall’s death or did others factors contribute? By other factors he’s not talking about the 900lbs of deputees.

As with Marvin Booker, police experts blame not the excessive use of force but the victim’s exertions against the force, struggling to breathe under a pile of officers very specifically. I’m reminded of the adage, it’s not the fall that kills you, it’s the sudden deceleration at the end. Michael Marshall couldn’t breathe, he kept trying alegedly, and the officers weren’t going to loosen their hold until he was comatose.

The city attorneys office plans to release the jail surveillance video tomorrow. You won’t see Michael Marshall but you’ll see the deputies who wrestled the slight-built Marshall to his death. The DA report lists their names: sheriffs deputies Bret Garegnani, Carlos Hernandez, Smajo Civic, Thanarat Phuvapaisalkij, and Sarah Bautista.

Marshall’s death hasteners join Marvin Booker’s killers, deputies James Grimes, Kyle Sharp, Kenneth Robinette, and Sgt. Carrie Rodriguez, all still on the jailhouse team. Except Deputy Faun Gomez, who was disciplined for another excessive force infraction and now serves with the highway patrol.

The atrocity of Michael Marshall’s autopsy is what they already knew


DENVER, COLORADO- Fifty-year-old schitzophrenic Michael Marshall died in the Denver jail in the same fashion as Marvin Booker five years ago. The city was made to pay out six million dollars for Marvin’s wrongful death but refused to discipline the deputies involved. Michael’s relatives await the release of security camera video to confirm not only another six officer pile-on, but it might have been the same personel. Actually the sheriff has admitted to the family that six deputies were on the scene, but that one of them sat it out. The sheriff would not confirm or deny the math of how many deputies were sitting on Michael Marshall when they induced his cardiac arrest. The autopsy reveals Michael asperated on his own vomit due to a spitguard placed over his mouth. The autopsy itemizes the effects of a brutal beating which left over a cup of blood in Michael’s lungs. But to me the most damning details were in the hospital’s initial diagnosis, kept from the public for reasons of medical privacy. When Michael’s body left the jail and for a week after, the news could only report that he was on life support. Unlike with Marvin Booker, the Denver Sheriff deputies hadn’t killed Michael Marshall. His family and the community awaited his recovery. But Michael would never recover. “Life support” describes his status as innacurately as “comfort care” describes the act of unplugging him.

To translate:
Michael Marshall arrived at the hospital effectively brain dead, not breathing, his body already acidifying, and his muscle tissues tenderized, ie breaking down. These are points of no return which should be recognizable to reporters on the crime beat, and likely to detectives and law enforcement managers who’ve seen this kind of thing regularly. The Denver public would know that it sees this regularly except that it’s lied to about what Denver police and sheriff deputies are doing regularly.

Though the coroner begins the paragraph noting Michael’s history of polysubstance abuse, without implying it had import, he closes the review with the detail that a pee test showed Michael was clean.

Police toss brutality victims and video evidence in box with Schrodinger’s cat

Michael MarshallDENVER, COLORADO- Denver jailers killed 50-yr-old schitzophrenic Michael Marshall in the exact manner they killed Marvin Booker five years ago except this time they kept it under wraps. By throwing their victim’s body in with Schrodinger’s cat. Authorities in Denver and Minneapolis have learned you can have your cake and kill it too, so long as you postpone the public learning what the outcome was. It’s the lesson of Schrodinger’s Cat. If you kill an unarmed man, for god’s sake don’t drape him in a shroud. Ship his body to the hospital under guard and stick it on life support. Medical privacy laws forbid health workers from disclosing the patient’s fate. Minneapolis police held off public outrage over the shooting of Jamar Clark with the same technique: say he’s on life support until it’s no longer plausible. Schrodinger’s box works for damning videos too. Until the public can open the box, hopefully never, the police did AND didn’t commit the atrocity.

BREAKING: Denver deputies owe $4.6M for excessive killing of Marvin Booker

DENVER, COLO.- A jury reviewing the case of Marvin Booker v Denver County Sheriff’s deputies has awarded $4.6 Million to the Booker estate for the excessive force that caused his homocide. Is this justice? Not yet, but it is a huge victory against police brutality at a moment when cities across the nation are errupting in protest and police officers have yet to be charged with wrongdoing. The five deputies who killed Marvin Booker have now been found culpable. The next step would be criminal charges. BTW, after the verdict was read, the five were given an armed escort out the back door away from the courtroom audience. Next time let’s see that happen in shackles.

US torture industry defends its murder of Marvin Booker at Denver federal courthouse

Stop whining murderous crybabies
DENVER, COLO- Well, you’ve almost missed the most compelling courtroom drama this side of television. Although even on TV you don’t see a judge having to repeatedly admonish the audience to refrain from reacting with audible incredulity at the clueless ambivalence, awkward dissembling, and brazen lies being told on the stand by sheriff deputies and their witnesses concerning the death of Marvin Booker, 56, in their custody on July 9, 2010. National law enforcement experts have been flown in to defend the Denver Sheriff’s Department policies. It’s been quite a laugh and the jury seems wise to the scheme. Closing arguments begin Friday. If you’ve followed the Denver Post coverage you can skip the next paragraph, but those who’ve been packing the federal courtroom these past three weeks can assure you, you haven’t been treated to the half of it.

Four years ago Marvin Booker, an itinerant African American street preacher who weighed 135 pounds, died under a pileup of Denver Sheriff deputies simultaneously restraining him, kneeling on his prone body, twisting his wrists, contorting his ankles with nunchucks, choking him by the neck, and Tasing him. All of these methods are permitted means of “pain compliance”. Denver County Jail deputies assert they were trying to stop Booker from struggling. Asked one juror: “Could you keep still if you thought you were being killed?”

They held Marvin Booker in a carotid choke hold for two and a half minutes, and tased him for up 27 seconds.

Perhaps you’ve heard about the anomalies. The deputies met afterward to get their stories straight. Surveillance footage is missing, video of inmate witness testimony is missing, the taser is missing! Now everyone’s memory has gone missing too, they even try the excuse in the present. “No I don’t recall seeing myself do that in the video just now.” But most of what may be damning video is gone. The deputies were said to be high-fiving themselves afterward in an area where the camera footage is missing.

The significance of the missing taser means follow-up investigations can conclude its use is unproved. Another taser with a timestamp indicating it was deployed at an event forty minutes later, was fired for eight seconds. The video and inmate witnesses suggest Booker was tased for 27 seconds, but because the first taser surrendered to investigators hadn’t been fired at all, authorities are allowing for the implausible: that Booker wasn’t tased at all.

UPDATE: Marvin Booker Still Dead, Denver Pigs who murdered him still immune from prosecution

Yep. Exactly that. Cops can beat a handcuffed prisoner to death and suffer no consequences under the so-called “law”.
The Fascist “Back the Badge” MORONS will chant “The policeman is always right, if you’ve done nothing wrong why should you fear the KGB, comrade, four legs good talking back to Pigs baaaaaddddddd…

Just in time for Pig Memorial Day, “Cop Killer” and Sarah Palin

The RetardiKlan wannabee president is allegedly upset over the song “Cop Killer”. Just in time for Pig Memorial Day, which is tomorrow.
Not upset over her demented followers blowing away Americans including a Judge, and of course children, nor upset over Cops handcuffing and then violently assaulting them for the so called ‘crime’ of “calling them names” like Chickenshit Pig Assholes. Or cops beating a prisoner, handcuffed and helpless and outnumbered at least 5 to one…Marvin Booker, to death in a jail cell in Denver, or cops forcing a REAL man, Oscar Grant, to lay on the ground then shooting him in the back for the ‘crime’ of being black without permission. Or shooting the 7 year old child Alyanna Jones then lying about the circumstances. (they shot her through the wall of her home according to the Pig-loving propaganda show filming them) and they get away with it because of all the really STUPID people, the Back The Badge MORONS who insist that everything a PIG does is legitimate even if it’s illegal.
People tell me that being beaten while handcuffed by the Coward Ass Pigs is “my own fault” because I shouldn’t have “talked back to them”.
These are the same people who will talk back to anybody they feel is helpless. Just too, you know, COWARDLY to talk back to anybody who is in a position of power. Then LIE right through their cop-cum stained teeth about how they “fight for freedom”.
They’ll say “I don’t agree with what you say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it… unless it’s somebody wearing a Uniform who’s denying your right to say it”.
I can predict that everybody who answers this with indignant rebukes and indignant defenses of the Pigs beating up and even killing people for talking back, is a pure and simple coward.
Sure, your military and police gave me “freedom of speech”. Freedom to say how wonderful they are but if I deviate from the script I can be punished, and y’all cowardly Back The Badge MORONS will bravely help the Mighty Pigs build their Blue Wall.

The PIGS in Bossier City/Shreveport, LA, shot a man in the back 8 times and claimed he was turned, facing them, with what they thought was a gun. How do you shoot somebody in the back 8 times, 0 times in the front, and he’s “facing you”?
Because the victim was black, the Back The Badge Morons who prevented any charges whatsoever against the ALL WHITE PIGS who murdered this man, welcomed the Ku Klux Klan to their block parties to “raise funds to defend the Courageous” Murdering PIG scum.
Including David Duke. Former leader of the United Klans.
Of course there’s no element of Racism in the Back the Badge Moron Movement. Just ask one, he’ll tell you… after having his Pig Heroes arrest you for daring to question him on the subject.
As for the typical PigSucker response that “well, you must have done SOMETHING wrong or the police would never have done that”

PROVE IT before saying it, you Literally God-Damned Coward Bitches!
Talking back isn’t against the law, assaulting somebody for doing it IS.
YOUR PIG HEROES commit the crimes and you snivel that it must be the fault of those they assault, sometimes to the point of murder?
Sickening bunch of sycophants.
You deserve the police state you’re permitting, only problem is, those of us who actually DO stand for freedom will be under your Police State Dictatorship right along with you.
It was Cops who murdered Jesus. Any cop today would cheerfully step up for the opportunity to drive the nails into His dying body.

And all you Back the Badge Morons would say it’s “Suicide by Cop”.
The Pigs in Bossier City? Never prosecuted. The Dallas PIGS who murdered Octagenarian Etta Collins shooting through her door nearly 3 decades ago? Never prosecuted. The Pigs in Denver who beat street-preacher Marvin Booker to death in a county jail cell? Never prosecuted. Only one of the Cold Blooded Murderers of Oscar Grant was prosecuted, but not for Murder, “involuntary homicide”.

Put the gun in Mr Grants back and pulled the trigger but it was “involuntary”. Here’s a CLUE, for all you Pig Lovers who celebrated your pigs getting away with murder AGAIN… if the PIG, who was kicked out of South Africa for being too racist, didn’t want to kill Mr Grant then he probably wouldn’t have placed the muzzle of an automatic pistol in his back and cocked the weapon…

But get up in Church and tell the Pigs how much you love them, do it in Jesus Name even though it was Cops who murdered Him.
You know why I don’t worship with y’all? Because a PIG who would cheerfully beat me up for “talking back” any other day of the week will try to shake my hand and tell me how much he considers me a beloved brother in Christ. Beating people up while they’re handcuffed isn’t any kind of love least of all Christian, and I’m not going to join you in your hypocrisy. I’m not going to smile at you, shake your hand and pretend that I actually believed that you’re just plum eat up with Christian Love for anybody who doesn’t bow down and worship your badge.

Closer to home

While Egypt burns with similar actions, in Denver this past week… there have been demonstrations against the Denver cops. specifically one cop-administered “cell euthanasia” from a year and New Years syndrome got me! 6 months ago.
From Infoshop:
The actions come on the heels of an endless series of police misconduct incidents, including the killing of a prisoner named Marvin Booker by Denver County Sheriffs at the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center in July 2010. A laundry list of beatings, rapes, child pornography and drug charges has marked police activity in the metro area. Lawsuit after lawsuit has been filed, with the city of Denver paying out millions of dollars over the last several years.

Killer Kops strike again, Kangaroo Kourts uphold their fellow Pigs “right” to murder anybody they God-damn please.
The Pigs especially love being able to kill prisoners, because it winds up being the word of the Good, Upstanding and Righteous Police Deathmonger Pigs against the word of whatever prisoner was a witness, if any.
They have any witnesses already in custody, easy to silence them… and the Coroner is a cop. That’s ANY coroner. A sworn and deputized officer of the court paid through the same budgets as the County or Parish Sheriff. What cop is going to testify against his Fellow Pigs?
None. They rush into Blue Wall Mode at any criticism of their Thug behavior, get the “Back the Badge” Morons to chant “The Policeman is your friend. Comrade Napoleon is always right. Four legs good, two contiguous brain cells Baaaaaaaddddd”

The Coroner will examine the body of a prisoner, beaten to death and with his wrists broken from the handcuffs, and declare it to be “natural causes” or “suicide”.
Amy Martin of Denver is every bit as much a PIG as the Thugs she protects with her Divine and Unquestionable death certificates.
So is Colorado Springs Dr Robert C. “Mengeles” Bux.

Anybody who has had a relative or friend die in custody should be pursuing every legal avenue to get a REAL examination.

Meanwhile, the PIGS will say “Oh, it’s their word against ours, and You Know How THEY Lie”
Or, “That’s what THEY all say”.
They teach the PIGS how to fake charges and beat or even kill prisoners at their academies.

And teach them to say “That’s what THEY ALL say!”

Unfortunately they also teach the American Public to echo that sentiment.
Crazy Horse was murdered by Army jail guards, shackled hand and foot, stabbed in the back with a U.S. Army Bayonet, while “trying to escape”.

Sitting Bull was killed by the Uncle-Tom Reservation Police.

If you’ve done nothing wrong, why should you fear the Gestapo, Citizen?
