Cop Claims Teen Assaulted Him, Video Shows He Assaulted Teen

Chris | InformationLiberation


Prince George's County, Maryland police officer Corporal Donald Taylor, a 13-year-veteran, claimed that after catching up to an aggressive youth who swung at him and began to flee, the youth reached for his gun, at which point he fired his gun at the youth in self defense. Despite this tale, newly released surveillance footage obtained by Fox 5 News shows the officer running up behind the youth, then smashing him in the head with his gun in a surprise attack, which triggered his gun to fire in the process.

The youth, 19-year-old Ryan Dorm, "spent about four months in jail before prosecutors dropped the charges against him," NBC Washington reports. Note, Dorm's lawyer says the police got this video two days after Dorm's arrest, yet they made him rot in jail for four months nonetheless.
"Well, the video contradicts what the officer originally wrote in his charging documents,” said Dorm’s lawyer, Jimmy Bell. “What it shows is that my client didn't lie. They print my client is a criminal. They put his face on television saying he committed these crimes, and he didn't."

Taylor was charged with second-degree assault last month.

Dorm and his lawyer filed a $10 million lawsuit against the police department and Taylor.
Unfortunately, as is the norm in these cases, police will simply rob taxpayers to pay a settlement. As to the cop's punishment, last we heard back in August of this year, he was on "administrative leave" with pay for the past six months. The old saying, "crime doesn't pay," doesn't apply if you're a police officer.

...just like they'd shoot us without hesitation. These are not heroes, these are corrupt, unamerica enforcers, being paid to bully and beat people.

7046 Cops like this should be fired. In severe cases (intentional homicide) they should also be tried. I hate the world I live in. It is not just.

140106 why was the cop going after him in the first place? cops dont usually chase down people for no reason. not saying the cop was in the right but there is always another side of the story and the camera doesnt show everything. obviously the cop didnt mean to fire the weapon, shouldnt have had his fingure on the trigger.

"why was the cop going after him in the first place?"

He thought he was a thief, his friend had a ski mask on, he says it was because it was cold. Regardless of the validity or non-validity of the cop's suspicions, he lied on his police report.

65206 I long for the day when law abiding citizens need a cop and there are none. I long for the day when people who criticize cops realize that these people have to endure the dregs of humanity every single day. They are constantly lied to and given attitude. They have about as thankless a job as you can imagine. I'd like to see any of you holier than thou ingrates do this job without shooting someone.

128239 He shouldn't have been wearing a ski-mask.
I've been all through Prince George's county.
No offense, but there are many black people there who are criminals. There is prostitution, robbert, drug dealing, etc. in copious amounts.
Should the cop have struck the young man? Of course not, but if I were the Police Officer I would have been afraid as well, especially with the ski-mask.
Unfortunately he shouldn't have acted on his fears, and from the look of the video, the youth looks like he could have been taunting the police officer.

128239 65206 is right, cops are saints, but they are human. So what if one makes a mistake once in a while?! I would probably have made many more in an area such as Prince George's County.
Does that make me racist? OF course not! It is an economically depressed and crime ridden area, and most people just HAPPEN to be black. If this were a white dude, no one would have said anything.

67190 Wearing a ski mask is not illegal. If the officer had a suspicion, he should have requested the suspected perp to remove his mask. At which point he would have concluded it was not a criminal.

Yes, I live by PG as well, there are lots of criminals, but the most criminal element in the county is the police, who are completely out of control. They raided the mayor's house a few years back and shot his dogs in a "botched" drug raid. These are also the same police who made national headlines for viciously beating a Univ. of Maryland Student, then lying about it on their police report claiming he attacked them, quite similar to this incident. They were also busted because someone caught the beating on video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isP_2qcGZc0

17166 To Anonymous 65206: Yes, I can see how the job is extremely difficult and testing to any person, but no matter how difficult the situation gets, it will never justify unlawful action when you are supposed to be the law. I believe that I could not endure what they have to endure: that's the reason why I'm not a police officer, and they are. We entrust them to power because we believe they can. Giving them such power, and believing they can handle it does not grant them leeway from the law that they supposedly uphold.

What an idiotic comment. People are against abuse of power, not cops in general. It's a shame that you seem to think that cops should be able to do whatever they want without consequences for their actions. The cop lied on his police report about the teen attacking him and you're defending that?

"He shouldn't have been wearing a ski-mask.

Apparently it was 35 degrees that night, perhaps he was cold. A black person wearing a ski mask on a cold night doesn't make them a criminal because there are criminals who happen to black.

108171 "If this were a white dude, no one would have said anything." You're full of shit. Who gives a crap about the kids color? I'm more worried about the cop slugging the kid in the face and then LYING ABOUT IT. The kid went to jail, because those cops lied.

And that's why I carry my own weapon, so I don't have to wait for some dickhead cop to show up, and idiots like you.

20951 The officer was not drafted; he sought this job. If he is not able to effect his work within the confines of the law, he should be fired. I do my job, he must do his. If he can't, fire him. There are many good people willing to do a good job in his place.
