Man Calls 911 To Report Criminal Cop, Dispatcher Tells Cop, Cop Calls Man & Threatens To "F**k Him Up" (InformationLiberation)
Monday October 29th, 2012
In an astonishing display of thuggery and intimidation, a 911 dispatcher allegedly ratted out a man who reported the crimes of a police officer to the criminal cop himself, then the cop called the man personally and threatened to "f**k him up."
A day after this story surfaced, another man reported the same cop threatened to hit him in the face with his nightstick during a simple traffic stop. After reporting the officer, he says the cop came to his home and harassed and intimidated him in like-kind. Despite reporting the cop's acts of intimidation to police, he says they did nothing about it.
The cop and dispatcher were both given a paid vacation while the same criminals who failed to investigate the first man's claims "investigate" these latest claims.
Collierville resident Michael Montgomery told News Channel 3, he was driving on Germantown Parkway when he sees two guys on motorcycles weaving in and out of traffic.Notice how the Mayor is throwing around more threats just like this petty thug cop? That's how you know this is systemic. Additionally, if they were serious about investigating this incident, a good start would have been to suspend the officer without pay, but of course that's just too much to ask.
"I pulled up to them at the stop light and told them, if they don't start behaving properly I would call the police", said Montgomery. "One gentleman lifted his vest and showed me a handgun and told me he was police."
Montgomery dialed 911 anyway, and said the man with the gun drove by him cursing.
Later, he says the man called him on his cellphone, apparently getting his number from 911. Montgomery said the officer told him to watch his back, that if he saw him in Memphis he would “f*^k him up.”
[...]"If it is true, it's going to be dealt with and dealt with severely", said Memphis Mayor A C Wharton. "If it's not true and someone turned in a false report on one of our officers that's going to be dealt with too."
Since breaking this story, WREG reports a second man has come forward saying this same officer threatened him as well.
Veasley says in his case, it started when he got a driving ticket from the officer February 9th, ”He got very verbal. Pulled a stick out and threatened to hit me in the face.”
Veasley says he didn’t know the officer’s name but when he went to court a couple of months later, he got Malone’s badge number and reported it to MPDs internal affairs.
And that’s when he says the real harassment began, ”After they took the report, the following next day Officer Malone was driving past my house.”
He says Malone has passed his Frayser home multiple times after that leaving a ticket on his car, even shining a spot light in his house.
Veasley says it’s all to intimidate him.
“I’m a citizen just like you are and I want to be treated like one,” he said. “I don`t want to be protected from the police. I want to be protected by them.”
MPD says Veasley did not file a complaint with internal affairs but with a workstation at the precinct level. Officials say a precinct supervisor called Veasley several times to follow-up on the case but Veasley never returned the phone calls so the case was dropped. But Veasley says he never got a follow-up call about it from police.
MPD says Veasley never reported that Officer Malone had continued to harass him.
I think it's pretty clear the only people these police are "protecting and serving" is themselves.
While Mr. Veasley said he doesn't want to "protected from the police," but "protected by them," I actually do want to protected from the police, and I don't want to be "protected" by them. Unfortunately, I don't have that as an option, anymore than the people of Afghanistan can choose not to be "protected" from the U.S. government's military occupation.
