Is it getting so bad that we cannot even walk down the street. Though there are great policemen, there is getting to be many brute bully police state style cops out there. They have militarized the police departments giving them armor and things our soldiers wear with assault riffles and armored vehicles that look like they could survive a nuclear blast. They have also been trained by the authoritarians that all of the general public, you and me are basically terrorists. We have been seeing so much disrespect from the department on people from killing that mentally handicapped man, kicking in the teeth of a woman handcuffed sitting down on the sidewalk, they are doing proctology exams on the side of the road without changing gloves which is very dangerous especially for women, the list goes on and on and if you don’t believe it do the research it’s mind blowing.
This man Bobby Wingate, of Jacksonville, Florida, was on his way to an appointment in the neighborhood of Arlington when he was suddenly stopped by an officer of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department. The last time Wingate walked down the road, he said he called 9-1-1 to protect himself from the police. “He parked his car right up here near this curve,” he said as he pointed. On a 9-1-1 recording of that night Wingate can be heard saying, “He said do I really want to fight him? I haven’t done anything wrong.”
According to court papers uncovered by First Coast News at the federal courthouse, Wingate was walking down the road in December when a JSO Police Officer stopped him and asked to talk. When he told the officer he was running late for an appointment, the officer cited him for walking on the wrong side of the road. According to court papers the officer then hit Wingate in the face and engaged his Taser. That’s when Wingate called 9-1-1. Wingate spent a night in jail, and the State Attorney’s Office took the case to trial. He was charged with resisting arrest without violence, and walking down the wrong side of the road. But in court, the officer testified he wasn’t sure what side of the road Wingate was on. Before the defense could even present its case, the judge ruled that there was not nearly enough evidence to proceed and dropped the charges and the case against Wingate.
