A man called 911 to report his car was on fire, police responded by macing him in the face and allegedly "savagely" beating him until he lost consciousness. A bystander filming the event was threatened and ordered to leave the scene, and the police took multiple steps to shield their actions from public view.
Rios filed a federal lawsuit last month saying that police came to his house on Aug. 29, 2010, after he called 911 to report that his car was on fire.Note how the police in the video below take multiple steps to shield their actions from public view, including threatening the man filming the incident. As Tim Lynch notes, "the police take three steps to conceal their actions from impartial bystanders/witnesses: (1) 'Go inside with the camera,' orders one; (2) the fire truck is moved to block the view of the people watching across the street; (3) next, after noticing that the bystanders can still see Rios from another angle, police move the squad car so they can no longer see Rios."
Watch the video for yourself, Jason Rios could not have been more submissive and compliant.
"Public Safety Director" Jason O’Donnell says, despite reports to the contrary, there is no "internal investigation" taking place into whether this was an act of police brutality.
Of course, even if there was, it would be the police investigating themselves, so why bother with the formality?
