Jermaine Vaughn

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel << Replay and additional angles might reveal what I saw in the stomp kick of Jermaine Vaughn did not go exactly like this: Jermaine was on his back with hands cuffed behind his back, and I can say being in handcuffs in a police car is painful enough, and to have the full force of one’s body pressing on arms behind one’s back . . OMG the pain of this alone. In addition a cop put full force by raising his foot, and stomping on Jermaine’s face. The back of Jermaine’s head hit the pavement, which stopped the downward movement of the cop’s foot. There is a “system” that is designed to process arrested men and arrested women. The police are expected to apprehend, and hand the suspect to the “system”. The cop who did this to Jermaine committed a crime. The moment after the stomp kick does not match the “accident” the cop’s attorney claims happened. Anyone who claims police excessive use of force against black men is not systematic is wrong. The “bad apple” theory is insufficient. More must be done. The added effort by the police department to view the vid and make it public is a step in the right direction. We need more steps. >> Tom Doody
