Posted on 05/20/2014 9:43:33 AM PDT by Hojczyk
From the video: Tommy Yancy, 32, father of two, was savagely beaten to death by five law enforcement officers during a routine traffic stop near the city of Imperial last Sunday, on Mothers Day. Yancy, a veteran who suffered from PTSD, served in Afghanistan and Iraq in the 259th Field Service Unit following the 9/11 attacks.
Yancy was stopped on his way to the store after a highway patrol officer spotted a missing front license plate on his vehicle. He was subsequently pulled from his car and attacked by a police K-9 unit, hit by a taser, and attacked by five officers until he succumbed to the beating and died. A witnessed, who filmed the incident, can be heard screaming on the recording: How long before you guys call an ambulance? Call an ambulance! According to the source of the video, who asked not to be named, his family has not been permitted to see his body, nor have they been given a cause of death.

Imperial ??? What state California??
Is it not already clear?
I’ve gotten three tickets for missing front plate. I’ve never had to get out of the car, though.
Nice thing about KY, where I live now, is that there are no front plates.
Imperial storm troopers is more like it.
Banana Republic? What’d he do, shoplift some pants?
Can’t wait for the JBT lickers to come along and explain to us all how this war veteran ‘deserved’ to be beaten to death after he was handcuffed and taken to the ground.
I didn’t see crap.
Well he’s black, so at least someone will investigate. The cops are out of control. People are going to resort to shooting them.
The most frightening thing about all of these is that NO cops speak out against it and NO cops tried to stop it.
Cops are gang members who think they can get away with anything, because they usually do.
This is a very long story, short on important facts.
The story should read;
Cops went to work this morning, at the most dangerous job in the nation.
Their day was interrupted by an out of control civilian, who had to be put down for their own safety.
Fortunately, nothing of significance interfered with their going home safely to their families that evening.
Not to worry. The police will investigate themselves and find no wrong-doing by the officers.
“The most frightening thing about all of these is that NO cops speak out against it and NO cops tried to stop it.”
Yeah, just like waiting for all the “moderate” muslims to condemn jihad violence...
what!!!! No dog to shoot?
I know cops. Dad was one. My mothers brother and a few cousins. all NYPD.
Lots of good honest cops. And a minority of creeps. Real creeps at that.
I will suspend my judgement till I know. But a handcuffed and on the ground perp? I don’t expect this to come out good for the cops who on the face of it will most likely be at fault.
And a lot of missing back plates on weekends. Where I live in KY, if you are gonna get drunk & drive it seems to be SOP to be sure and drive a car with no plates, DL or insurance. LOL.
Slight exaggeration, but my wife works for a local towing company and the stories I hear on Monday are mind boggling. I have no desire to drive after dark on the weekend.
They have one customer who periodically gets drunk, but he is responsible and calls them to tow him and his car home from the bar. No cab service here.
Video all contacts with those in government for your own safety and protection.
It's very easy to send the video directly to a remote server as it's being recorded, so the video cannot be seized or lost...
Just start killing Veterans, so Jerry has told his Goon Squad...
California (Southern Part) — interior...
I have no desire to drive after dark on the weekend.
These departments are wrong to to think there are no consequences for this kind of behavior. Crimes don't get reported any more. Evidence doesn't get turned over. Formerly solid citizens are saying "F**k it - they aren't on our side." There is no more voluntary cooperation in neighborhood policing. There is no more community or ballot box support for police department funding. There is simply a feeling that an occupying army has arrived, beholden to distant authorities, and they are to be shunned and avoided at all costs.
And it will all blow up one day, no doubt to the advantage of the Socialists who dominate our political institutions.
basically, between Yuma, Arizona, and San Diego.
Interstate 8 runs South of Imperial...
cowards protecting their own rather than doing the right thing.
what!!!! No dog to shoot?
“I don’t drive in cop infested areas often, but when I do, I always bring a dog to take the first bullet.”
I’ll take your word on that, and for good reason.
I used to believe and support the cops. All that has been washed away in the last decade or two. And that for good reason too.
It’s very unfortunate, police are to be the first line of physical defense against uncivilized behavior.
No more, they’ve gone to the other side of the line.
Now, to use the public words of more than one cop, it’s us vs them.
I’ve thought about removing my back plate when I visit the grandkids in Chicago for the I-pass lanes. If I were to actually get pulled over by a cop (I can’t remembe the last time I saw one behind me) I can claim some local stole my out of state plate...
He should have claimed he was an illegal immigrant from some central american country with a large population of african ancestry.
They probably would have waved him by...
Here are the ten deadliest job in the nation - police officer isn't even on the list:
You know what job is more dangerous than police officer?
Pizza delivery driver.
The next time the Domono's guy comes to your house, shake his hand warmly and say "Thank you for your service!"
I drove my car which was registered. In Kentucky, to New York and got a ticket for no front plate. I had to have the county clerk send a tester to the judge.
What is a tester?
Sounds like I may want to get a copy of the Kentucky law regarding front license plates and carry it with me...
“He should have claimed he was an illegal immigrant from some central american country with a large population of african ancestry.
They probably would have waved him by...”
Better yet the thugs with badges would have given him the send off if he had claimed that he was an illegal alien, homosexual, Muslim who votes early and often!
I was kinda wondering. I mean, your job is dangerous when you are in iffy situations and NOT armed.
Most likely a case of mistaken identity. They thought he was a lab puppy.
‘Imperial cops’... unintended ambiguity and redundancy rolled into one?
He doesn’t look like a DOG. Why did they kill him?
If it’s anything like a beeber, you’d better take precautions...
I just don’t want to get near anything that might cause me to get stuned!
The next time the Domono’s guy comes to your house, shake his hand warmly and say “Thank you for your service!”
No one wants to innocently do or say something that LEO, necessarily on guard nowadays, will interpret as being mad and uncooperative.
It is strange however that a google News search ("Tommy Yancy") returned only four hits all local. This is a Rodney King moment that the MSM employees love.
