No Charges For Cop Filmed Breaking Man's Face For Failure To ID, "Shoulder Thrust" Made Cop Fear For His Safety posted 11/21/2014, 10:04 AM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]






Clovis, New Mexico police officer Brent Aguilar will not faces charges despite breaking a man's cheekbone while executing a violent and controversial takedown for "concealing one's ID" and allegedly "resisting arrest."

The victim, Jorge Corona, 26, was a passenger in a traffic stop. He drew the cop's ire after asking why the driver was pulled over, he then refused to produce ID after the cop turned his attention on him.

Video of the incident which occurred earlier this August shows Corona, who was in handcuffs, did not appear to show any resistance prior to the officer's violent takedown.

The DA's office refused to give an explanation for their exoneration, saying the DOJ is also investigating the incident and they wish to "protect the integrity of their investigation."

Watch the full video below for yourself.

Do you think Corona showed any resistance? The officer claims he feared for his safety because Corona "thrust his shoulder forward, making the officer believe he was about to turn around and put the officer in danger."

Corona's lawyer, Dan Lindsey, says (more)

Man Imprisoned For Decades On False Child Molestation Charge Freed After Claim Recanted posted 11/21/2014, 10:01 AM (Associated Press)

Keep in mind this is not solely the fault of the faux victim, but the justice system which sentenced the innocent man to prison without hard evidence.

When U.S. governments take Americans into war, we hear them justify it as a fight for freedom. Often they rationalize it as an anti-tyranny fight, a pro-peace fight and a pro-democracy fight.

Freedom appeals to Americans. It is a core American value, even if it's not honored in practice here at home.

When politicians use freedom to justify war, they are making an emotional, not a reasoned, appeal. Why? It's because freedom, while a good thing, is never alone a suffi
