EE.UU.: Cinco agentes y un perro policial contra un joven desarmado 

EE.UU.: Cinco agentes y un perro policial contra un joven desarmado

Publicado: 30 sep 2013
Una escena grabada por varias cámaras de vigilancia en las calles de Atlantic City (Nueva Jersey) muestra el enésimo caso de abuso policial en Estados Unidos. Cinco agentes se ayudaron mutuamente para reducir y golpear a un joven.
Connor Castellani, de 20 años, quien estaba en desacuerdo con la presencia policial en el barrio, apareció inicialmente hablando por teléfono y luego polemizando con los policías. Posteriormente atravesó la calle y les gritó desde el otro lado, se alejó un poco y finalmente regresó para continuar gritando.
En ese momento varios agentes se acercaron corriendo al joven, en pantalones cortos, lo empujaron, derribaron, siguieron asestándole golpes hasta que estuvo en el suelo y no pararon después. Es más, no les bastó con reducirlo entre cinco, sino que le agredieron con un pastor alemán. Para eso accedió al lugar el agente Sterling Wheaten, conocido entre los vecinos de Atlantic City por sus antecedentes arbitrarios.
Según indicaron en las redes sociales algunas de sus víctimas, citadas por el blog ‘Photography is not a Crime’, ese agente había sido denunciado en tres ocasiones en los últimos tres años por azuzamiento abusivo de perros contra ciudadanos. Al menos 12 veces, en los últimos dos años, fue sometido a investigaciones internas por aplicación desmesurada de la fuerza.

Actualmente Castellani se encuentra en un calabozo y sobre él se cierne el cargo de asalto agravado a los policías. La grabación evidencia que no hizo nada semejante, pero para el jefe de la Policía de Atlantic City, Ernest Jubiliee, no hay razón alguna para poner en libertad al joven. Además, el oficial no vio ningún motivo para suspender a los oficiales involucrados en la brutal detención, argumentando que «cumplían con sus funciones».

Atlantic City Cops Caught on Video Viciously Attacking, Siccing Dog on Non-Resisting Man
By Carlos Miller
Another disgusting show of police abuse was caught on surveillance camera, showing five Atlantic City police officers beating, punching and kneeing a man repeatedly before a sixth officer drives up and sics a dog on the man.
The 20-year-old man, David Connor Castellani, was charged with aggravated assault. The video shows he did no such thing. The altercation begins just after the 3:00 mark.
 

 
Atlantic Police Chief Ernest Jubiliee told NBC10 that he viewed the tape of the incident that took place and “saw no reason to suspend or remove officers from their regular duties.”
He also sees no reason to release Castellani’s arrest report after NBC10 reporter Harry Hairston filed a public records request.
It turns out, the cop who sicced the dog on Castellani, Sterling Wheaten, has been sued three times in the last three years for abusing citizens and has been investigated by internal affairs more than a dozen times in two years for excessive force.
And apparently one of those citizens left this comment on the NBC10 article.

But the Atlantic City Police Department boasts on its website that it “has one of the finest K-9 training programs in the country. We have trained law enforcement agencies along the entire Eastern United States and the U.S. Virgin Islands.”
According to the Press of Atlantic City:
The encounter lasted less than three minutes — with police and the K-9 seen backing away shortly after 3:12 a.m. — but the elder Castellani, who is a lawyer, said it left his son with permanent injuries, including nerve damage and muscle paralysis where the K-9 grabbed onto his son’s neck.
“They’re just here standing around looking at him, like he’s a piece of meat,” said his mother, Terri, as the officers on the tape slowly back away from her son, much of his body blocked by the K-9 vehicle.
Medics arrived about eight minutes later. An officer who arrived after the arrest prevented Castellani from bringing his handcuffed hands up to feel his injuries.
Terri Castellani said her son still wore those handcuffs when, hours later, she visited him in the hospital after authorities allowed the 20-year-old to call home. His back and head “looked like Hamburger Helper,” she said, with more than 200 stitches needed to close his wounds.
“It was the most horrific sight I’d ever seen,” she said. “I never expected to walk into what I did.”
Castellani is now suing and the incident is supposedly under investigation by internal affairs and the Atlantic County Prosecutor, which we can imagine, will go nowhere.
The incident took place in June after Castellani was kicked out of a casino for being underage. The video shows he was exchanging words with cops from down the street when they came charging at him and attacked like a pack of rabid dogs.
And police wonder why citizens would not call 911 to report an officer getting beat up.
Call the Atlantic City Police Department: (609) 347-5780.
