Kids Say Fresno Cops Tasered & Drowned Dad


FRESNO, Calif. (CN) - Fresno police drowned a man by Tasering and hogtying him, then sticking a garden hose "onto (his) face and mouth" when he pleaded for water, the man's two children claim in Federal Court.

The two minor children, I.R. and H.R., claim that in the summer of 2011 Fresno police restrained their father, Raul Rosas, at a friend's house while responding to a domestic disturbance call.

The children say their father was not armed and "had not committed a crime."

After an altercation with a John Doe officer, police pepper-sprayed Rosas and then Tasered him a "countless number of times," the complaint states.

The children claim their father was Tasered "for eight to ten more minutes," then he was "hogtied with his ankles tied to his handcuffs behind his back."

The complaint continues: "Decedent was then slammed onto a table in the residence's backyard face down. An officer was observed with his knee on decedent's back while decedent was hogtied, handcuffed, and face down.

"Decedent stated that he couldn't breathe and that he needed water; an officer ran water from a hose onto decedent's face and mouth to the point of making it more difficult for decedent to breathe. Decedent tried to move his mouth away from the water and gasp for air. A witness yelled 'He can't breathe, you're drowning him,' but the officer continued running water over decedent's face.

"After turning the water off, the Doe Officer(s) continued to press his knee against decedent's back and continued to put pressure on it. Witnesses repeatedly asked officers to let decedent get up because he couldn't breathe, but their cries for help were ignored.

"By now there were in excess of 15 deputies and officers on the scene.

"After some time passed, decedent had clear spit bubbles coming out of his mouth.

"Witnesses yelled at officers that decedent was not breathing and pointed to the clear spit bubbles but again were ignored. Doe officer claimed decedent was 'faking it.'"

"Officers, after much pleading from witnesses, checked decedent's pulse and discovered he had stopped breathing after not feeling anything when they touched decedent's neck.

"Decedent had his handcuffs taken off and was untied and placed on his back on the ground. After some time had passed, an officer started doing chest compressions but none of the officers administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to the decedent. Ultimately a witness at the scene administered CPR to decedent.

"Some time later, an ambulance arrived and took over trying to revive decedent."

5098 Hang them by the neck until they are dead,dead,dead! As a juror. Id be understanding if a bystander took control of the situation by lethal force if needed to save his life. After all...what crime has this person been convicted of that these psychopaths treat him in such an inhumane way? Keep that in mind. One day I just might be said juror.

These stories piss me off the most, more than congressmen trying to take away rights and enforce moronic laws, more than the TSA violating rights and groping children. Cops are supposed to protect people from criminals and help victims find justice. Cops are supposed to be our friends, neighbors; our sword and shield against the dregs of society. But for the past 50 years and more, cops have been gaining more and more power over civilians and protection from the laws they are supposed to be upholding. I've said things before, things I shouldn't have, about cops and what should happen to them, but actions like this go too far. Pretty soon, people are going to step up and say enough is enough. When we can't trust the cops to do their duty, when we can't trust the rest of the justice system to stop those corrupt cops from being on the streets, when we can't do anything to them but they can kill us wantonly; justice will be served. Whether at the hands of a mob of angry neighbors or an army of pissed off American citizens - it'll happen. And when it does, cops will wish they weren't cops.

7132 Recently an article I read stated that even though overall murder numbers were down it seems that the police were getting killed more frequently, really from all the news I read, I have to call bullshit on that and say mureder by cops is on the upswing if anything. The fckng lying media whores and their tales of B.S.
