I guarantee that this video will leave you in disbelief and leave you feeling VERY angry. It is seriously just ridiculous how much these cops are getting away with these days!
A video just surfaced of New Jersey officers arresting a black man named Philip White, but letting their K-9 dog attack him as he laid there, unconscious. He later died on the way to the hospital.
Via NBC 10 Philadelphia:
Officials say the ordeal began at 10:53 a.m. Tuesday when two Vineland Police officers responded to a call for service for a disorderly person on the 100 block of Grape Street in Vineland. When they arrived they found 32-year-old Phillip White.
“Shortly thereafter, officers called for medical assistance in response to White appearing to be in respiratory distress,” a spokesperson for the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office said. “During the incident White was handcuffed and restrained.”
White was placed in an emergency vehicle and taken to the hospital, according to officials. Officials say an officer was with him at the time. At some point, White became unresponsive and medical personnel instituted CPR, according to investigators. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital. What remains in dispute are the events that occurred immediately before White’s death.
“They punched him, stomped him, kicked him and then they let the dog out of the car,” said Ricardo Garcia. “The dog bit him on his face and around his body. There’s no call for that. Once a man is handcuffed and unconscious, you should have stuck him in the patrol car and take him to the police station. Instead they decided to beat him right here.”
Another witness, Luis Martinez, also insisted White wasn’t doing anything wrong and that the officers used excessive force.
WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES
The officers tried to take the phones and personal information of anyone who had recorded the incident. It is perfectly legal for you to record an arrest, as long as you don’t get in the way of an arrest. Our prayers go out to the family of Philip White. We hope he gets the justice he deserves and we hope these evil cops get off the streets and out of our communities.
