Extra-judicial death penalty attempt (hopefully) failed

Police use "Pre-Trial Electrocution" to knock suicidal black man off of a bridge. The police extra-judicial death penalty attempt (hopefully) failed.

Black Man Tased on Bridge.
Check out the Video of the black man and would-be suicidal jumper, brought down by pre trial police elerctrocution because he (the victim) was suicidal.

It was another case of police attempted murder of yet another black man. Police estimate the pre-trial victim of police electrocution fell about 15 feet onto a concrete embankment beside I-70, landing on his right side after the 1½-hour standoff. Family members on the scene were distraught. They blamed the police department for preventing them to speak with McDuffy while he was on the bridge. His daughter felt he would have gotten off the bridge safely if she had the chance to speak to him. More HERE

Phillip McDuffy, 45, suffered two broken arms, a fractured skull and possibly a broken jaw in the fall, Columbia police Capt. Zim Schwartze said yesterday.


Don't be sucidal in America black man, before you jump off the bridge police may use "Pre-Trial Electrocution" to kill yah!

Get this folks as reported by komu.com - Columbia Police say a Taser "played a role" in how a man fell from a bridge while he threatened to jump.

Tasered While Black: WTF, played a role?

Get this, komu.com also reports, "The department says the suicidal man, 45-year-old Phillip Lee McDuffy of Columbia, was threatening to jump from the Providence Road pedestrian overpass. After an hour and a half of negotiations, McDuffy moved towards the south side of the bridge away from I-70. Officers deployed a Taser when he was in a spot on the bridge that would prevent injury if he fell.

Captain Zim Schwartze says that deployment did not work.

Tasered While Black: Here comes the cover up!

komu.com: McDuffy moved quickly over the highway when the Taser was deployed a second time. By that time, he had moved away from a secure area and fell onto the concrete. He was taken to the hospital. McDuffy suffered two broken arms, an orbital fracture (eye socket) and a possible jaw fracture."

Tasered While Black: komu.com needs to rewind the tape and start reporting the facts. The Cover up has begun. The Columbia Police Department released an extensive news release explaining its position on what happened and why officers decided to deploy the Taser.

AAPP, I'm proud to be a part of this blog with you. The necessity for ending the electrocution and execution of Black people is something we all need to act upon and do something about today. I urge bloggers to adopt the widget in the right panel to show that we are no longer going to accept the pre-trial and extra-judicial electrocution and execution of Black people.

Ask yourself this: If the use of tasers required a court order, is there any way in the world that the police could have shown this video to a court and obtained an order to use a taser, as opposed to calling in a psychiatrist or something?

If it was a bear, would the police have tasered him? Could they have called the fire department for a net before tasering this man?

If I call the police to get my cat out of a tree, will they taser my cat? Probably not, right, because the taser might kill him, or he might fall and hurt himself? If only they had given this Black man the same consideration.

If I were ever in this man's circumstances, I hope the police would treat me they way they treat an escaped bear or a cat in a tree, instead of treating me the way the police treat Black people. Just give me the consideration you would give a wild animal, please! Call a game warden who is concerned with animal safety instead of a police officer who is concerned only with "taking me down".

I'm equally as proud to be a part of this blog with you. The electrocution and execution of Black people, and all people is something we all need to act upon and do something about today.

I also urge all bloggers to adopt the widget in the right panel to show that we are no longer going to accept the pre-trial and extra-judicial electrocution and execution of Black people. But I also must note that there are many whites, native Americans an latinos being tasered as well.

I'm glad to have joined up with you on this very important issue.
