Dayton, Ohio Police Beat and Taser Mentally Handicapped Youth

Cops Just Love Those Tasers
By KEVIN KOENINGER
DAYTON, Ohio (CN) – Dayton police “mistook” a mentally handicapped teenager’s speech impediment for “disrespect,” so they Tasered, pepper-sprayed and beat him and called for backup from “upward of 20 police officers” after the boy rode his bicycle home to ask his mother for help, the boy’s mom says.  –
I have to ask, if there were 20 police officers available to respond to this incident, then there are obviously too many police. I would imagine there is a reserve of officers waiting in a room watching the clubbing of baby seals, or maybe even real babies, just waiting for one of their brethren to call for help because he needs a “throw down” weapon to frame the “perp”. In my opinion, one cop is too many, but 20 of these thugs being available for back up is pork on the payroll.
Pamela Ford says her “mentally challenged/handicapped” son Jesse Kersey, 17, was riding his bike near his Dayton home when Officer Willie Hooper stopped him and tried to talk to him.
The mom says that “Prior to the incident described below, defendant Hooper knew Jesse and was aware that Jesse was mentally challenged/handicapped and a minor child.”
Nonetheless, Ford says, Hooper “apparently took Jesse’s speech impediment for disrespect … [and] began yelling at Jesse and after Jesse attempted to communicate with him[.] Jesse, being a minor and mentally challenged/handicapped, turned and rode his bike back to his home in an attempt to ask his mother, Ford, to help him communicate with defendant Cooper,” according to the complaint in Montgomery County Court. –

First of all, Hooper has NO business approaching anybody unless they have reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed. Nobody has any duty to speak to, much less, exhibit respect to a cop. Hooper has also received the distinguished “Douchebag of the Week”, which doesn’t even come close to conveying the contempt I feel for this low-life right now, but will suffice nonetheless.

On the way, the mom says, “A neighbor attempted to communicate with Officer Hooper about Jesse’s disabilities and was told to go back into his home, or he would be arrested.”
As Ford opened her front door, she says, Hooper and co-defendant Officer John Howard, “fired their Tasers, striking Jesse in the back with both probes.”
“Once inside the house, defendant Hooper and defendant Howard began to struggle with Jesse, who was standing against the back door with his hands up in front of his face, saying ‘Please quit, please quit.’
“On numerous occasions, Ford and a family friend, Christopher Peyton, informed Officer Hooper that Jesse was mentally challenged/handicapped, and that Jesse did not understand what was happening,” the complaint states. –

First of all, the next time anyone witnesses anyone being assailed by police, they need to go back into the house and get a weapon and go to that person’s aid. What Hooper and Howard did afforded them no protection since they were acting outside the law, and anybody who witnessed the assault would have been within their rights to subdue them, even to the point of taking their lives if necessary. This article talks about using force, even if deadly, to resist an unlawful arrest. http://markmccoy.com/wp/2009/04/02/your-right-of-defense-against-unlawful-arrest-2/

But the mom says the cops continued their assault: “Officer Howard utilized his Cap-Stun pepper spray and sprayed Jesse … [and] struck Jesse with a closed fist in the upper chest area.
“Officer Howard utilized his ASP and repeatedly struck Jesse in the upper left side of his left thigh.
“Back-up units were requested to Jesse’s house, wherein upward of 20 police officers from different jurisdictions were present.
“At no point, even after being advised of Jesse’s mental challenge/handicap by Jesse’s family and numerous bystanders, did defendant Hooper, defendant Howard, or any other police officer present, attempt to communicate with Jesse or explain in terms he could understand as to why Jesse was being chased.
“Jesse was handcuffed and hogtied before being placed in the back of a police cruiser.
“Jesse was charged with assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest, and obstructing official business.” –

It seems that Willie Hooper is a scumbag of some notoriety. This is not the first time Hooper has been sued for his violent tendencies and lack of basic human decency. In 1995, Daniel B. McGuiness sued Hooper and the City of Dayton, Ohio for Malicious Prosecution and Infliction of  Emotional Distress. The court dismissed that case against Hooper, as is usual with judicial protectionism of these vermin, in 1997.

However, “Jesse was declared incompetent by the Montgomery County Juvenile Court and the charges against Jesse were dismissed.”
Jesse and his mom seek damages from the city and the two lead officers, for false imprisonment, false arrest, malicious prosecution, assault, battery, excessive use of force, infliction of emotional distress and civil conspiracy. –

Of course the charges were dismissed. This is the way they always deal with these issues. However, that doesn’t stop the police from initiating bogus charges and physically assaulting people in the first-place. They were dismissed because they had no right to stop Jesse. I would say that whenever you are approached by a cop, that you should be on the defensive and should they step outside the law and exhibit intent to harm you, take defensive action. The Dayton Daily News give a different perspective on the story, but still does not explain by what right Hooper had in using the level of force used against Jesse. If Jesse did, as alleged in the police report, ride his bike down a one way street, that is not a criminal offense and arrest is not allowed for violations which consist of a fine only.

There is also a forum hosted by supposedly freedom-loving right wing lunatics at Conservative Political Forum where they mention Jesse’s lack of cooperation with being a justification for the police using the force that they did. As if we have a duty to jump to the commands of police as if they were wardens over a prison, which is not really far from the truth. They talk about the “liberal left with an agenda” reporting this incident and Jesse’s lawyer as trying to use the issue as a ploy for sympathy of a handicapped individual.

They are represented by Richard Boucher. –

    Wow, what else is new from the Dayton Gestapo. This guy should be charged and fired. he has no business wearing a uniform of law in any city, not even a low-wage high-school drop-out security guard would be so stupid.

  2. Creepersdemise says:

    Dosent suprise me in the least. Cops go outside of the law on 95% of all disputes with civillians; but 95% of the time they get off  because they have our corrupt government backing them. This dirtbag needs to be linched…and to think a piece of shit like this is allowed to have a child.
