Despite constitutional guarantees, Americans’ civil rights and liberties are constantly in danger of violation, whether by individuals, corporations or government institutions. Regardless of whether personal prejudices or national security concerns lie at the root of these violations,
Challenging them and holding wrongdoers accountable is imperative for the sake of constitutional integrity and the preservation of The American Way. Trial Lawyers advocate for awareness, the truth, and a person’s right to know. They believe that in the absence of the truth, all of us stand helpless to defend ourselves, our families, our health, and our way of life.
Often times we don’t think about or worry about or understand what is happening to another…. until it happens to us. Deceits have no boundaries. Disease doesn’t recognize the color of our skin or our political party’s affiliation.
When it comes to cover-ups and false allegations by Agencies of the State and the Federal Government, there is not a soul amongst us who does not have a cringing fear of their Overwhelming Awesome power ….
It is at these times that we need experienced and dedicated Trial Lawyers…. the Warriors in the Courtroom … who are willing to battle for us “tooth and nail” in the Halls of Justice…. To protect our cherished way of life”
People who experience forms of developmental or mental disabilities are often times doubly targeted by police violence due to high rates of poverty and homelessness.
The brutal murder of a homeless man with schizophrenia in Fullerton, California presents what happens…. when homelessness, mental illness, and police brutality meet. Kelly Thomas was sleeping on the streets when he was murdered; he was approached by six police officers in July of 2011.
When Kelly allegedly refused to comply with his arrest two police officers held him down… while four more police officers took turns beating him with their batons and stunning him with Tasers for eight minutes. The beating left Kelly comatose and disfigured – he died less than a week afterward. This was what Kelly Thomas looked like just before he died.
To be plain, very little information is collected on a national level concerning police injuring and killing of people with disabilities. The problem comes from a larger failure to gather information on a national basis about police injuring and killing civilians as a whole. Police departments either do not collect, or are reluctant to collect, this kind of information. Reports of police injuring and killing civilians are scattered and imprecise.
All across this great nation of ours, we see horrific examples of some cops beating and mistreating persons with developmental or mental disabilities because the cops are not properly trained.
More training and better awareness of the complexities of interacting with people with disabilities will help decrease and maybe eliminate these unspeakable crimes against society’s less fortunate.
In Maryland, Ethan Saylor died because police responded with rapid and unnecessary force to his disability.
In San Diego, 21-year-old Antonio Martinez, who has downs syndrome, was walking to his parents’ bakery around 8 p.m. when he was stopped, pepper-sprayed and beaten by a San Diego sheriff’s deputy. –
In Los Angeles, a LA County sheriff’s deputy was caught on a cell phone camera throwing a punch in a girl’s face. What makes it more outrageous is that it is obvious he hit a person with special needs that was struggling to break loose from the grip of the cop and a female deputy as they were trying to make her get off the bus.
In Dayton Ohio a mentally disabled teen was harassed and abused by police officer.
In Washington D.C. Police Assaulted a Homeless Man In a Wheelchair.
In Idaho Police Arrested and Handcuffed an 8-year-old Autistic Girl
In Hillsborough County, Florida, police were caught, by their own surveillance cameras, dumping a quadriplegic man from his wheelchair onto the ground. Apparently, they were trying to determine whether or not he actually needed the chair.
These are just a few of the hundreds of daily examples improperly trained police officers perpetrate on those less fortunate than us.
Americans want to feel safe.
Should we continue to accept the argument that cops only occasionally overstep their boundaries… And only when handling guilty criminals and never with us?
Can we really expect them to investigate and prosecute themselves when faced with allegations of misconduct?
Can we believe that they are acting for our own good?
Too many innocent people are convicted…too many are wrongly executed.
The cost has become too high for free people to bear.
The Department of Justice has reported how deeply embedded police brutality is, and why recent political rhetoric promising solutions barely scratches the surface.

Reed & Associates, as we take you inside today’s legal system, examining lawyers’ strategies, and client’s thoughts, and in vivid detail…. showing you the often-heartbreaking stories of police abuse, excessive force, and wrongful death cases of these clients.

From Kenosha to Minneapolis to Dallas and Ferguson to Baltimore, a new story about police brutality in America surfaces almost daily, raising the timely questions…. Are we protected from the people hired to defend us?
Do these recurring acts of excessive force signal something new?
Are we headed into a budding police state or have we already arrived?
The Insider Exclusive Investigative Documentary Network TV News Archives contain unprecedented news coverage on headline-making TV stories of police brutality, excessive force, corruption, wrongful death cases….and we present just a few of the stories of the many victims of Police Brutality and Wrongful Death that the Insider Exclusive Network TV Shows have reported on National Network TV …..
Police abuse remains one of the most serious and divisive human rights violations in the United States today! The horrific images of Rodney King being beat by the LAPD is one of the most blatant reminders of police brutality against innocent victims.
The excessive use of force by police officers…. including unjustified shootings, severe beatings, ……and fatal chokings, persists….
Because overwhelming barriers to accountability make it possible for officers who commit human rights violations to escape due punishment ….and often to repeat their offenses.
Police or public officials greet each new report of brutality with denials ……or explain that the act was just an aberration, while the administrative and criminal systems that should deter these abuses by holding officers accountable instead… virtually guarantee them impunity
This Special INSIDER EXCLUSIVE investigation discovered…… that police brutality is persistent and rampant across America….AND that systems to deal with abuse have FAILED….
And that……Victims seeking redress face daunting obstacles at every point in the process, ranging from overt intimidation to the reluctance of local and federal prosecutors to take on brutality cases.…… of officers who have committed these human rights violations.
Despite claims to the contrary…. from city officials where abuses have become scandals in the media…… efforts to make meaningful reforms have fallen short.
The barriers to accountability are remarkably similar from city to city. Shortcomings in recruitment, training, and management are common to all……
So is the fact that officers who repeatedly commit human rights violations tend to be a small minority…. who taint entire police departments… but are protected routinely…..by the silence of their fellow officers ……and by flawed systems of reporting, oversight, and accountability.
Today, the Insider Exclusive’s “Justice in America” Network TV Series examines this epidemic in this exclusive Special: “AMERICA’S POLICE-CITIZEN & CIVIL RIGHTS CRISIS– What You Need to Know” . with famed Detroit Civil Rights Lawyer Arnold Reed @ the Arnold E. Reed & Associates Law firm.
You will see how Arnold exposes the lies and the contradictions of some police officers.
As Arnold has often said, “the problem of Police Brutality is much more widespread than most Americans are willing to admit. ……. Our nation practices a selective blindness…In this great and strong nation, we have all become unwitting accomplices to the continuation of the conflict”.
Arnold has earned the highest respect from citizens and lawyers alike…. as one of the best Civil Rights and Criminal Defense Trial lawyers in Detroit and in Michigan.
He has seen many innocent & hard-working people become victims of the Police Brutality. He understands that Police brutality is one of the most serious, enduring, and divisive human rights violations in the United States. The problem is not just in Detroit…But nationwide….and its nature is institutionalized
And because of that……He is driven to fight for people who had been harmed by the willful or negligent actions of others. His goals…… Not only to get Justice for his clients…But to make sure All Americans have the right to a fair trial, honest cops, impartial prosecutors, and fair judges with NO AGENDAs…
BECAUSE “INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE” !!!
