Here’s What Really Happened to the Idaho Rancher Who Was Killed By Police

| |

jack yantis

When the death of Idaho rancher Jack Yantis was first reported, the details surrounding his case were sparse. According to the police, one of his bulls had escaped his property before getting hit by a station wagon on Highway 95. The irate bull was charging at emergency responders and police officers, who were trying to help the injured passengers that were still in the car. So the police decided to contact Yantis, and asked him to take care of his animal.

Yantis showed up to the scene with his rifle as Adams County deputies were preparing to put the bull down. An altercation ensued between Yantis and two deputies, who eventually shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and his wife suffered a near fatal heart attack after hearing the news.

That was the official timeline of events when this story first broke last week. However, that account neglects the fact that Jack’s wife and nephew witnessed the entire incident, and they’ve recently released a very different version of what happened.

Rowdy Paradis, Yantis’ nephew, said that when he arrived at the scene of the accident he found the bull lying in the grass near the driveway of the ranch. Yantis told Paradis to get a rifle so he could put the bull out of its misery, but meanwhile the two deputies at the scene opened fire, wounding the bull but failing to kill it. When Yantis pointed his rifle at the bull’s head to end its suffering, Paradis said, a deputy grabbed him from behind, spun him around, and grabbed the rifle. The rifle may have gone off during the scuffle, and both deputies opened fire, killing Yantis.

Yantis’ wife, Donna, who had a heart attack after witnessing the shooting, confirmed her nephew’s account in a video recorded at the hospital. After the shooting, she said, the deputies “threatened me and my nephew, Rowdy Paradis, threw us on the middle of Highway 95, searched us and handcuffed us, and wouldn’t let us go take care of Jack.” The deputies would not let anyone euthanize the bull either. “The bull ended up lying there for two hours,” Paradis said, “suffocating in his own lung blood because they shot him in the gut.”

According to Jack’s wife, they didn’t do anything to help him as he lay dying in the grass. His nephew has gone on to say that the officers had a “smug and almost celebratory” attitude as they retrieved the rifle from his body.

When this story first broke, it was frequently referred to as a “shootout,” and one of the deputies claimed that he was “grazed” by a bullet. One of the family friends who was present for the shooting has called that claim a lie, saying “there was no blood, no torn thread, no powder burn… nothing.” This was no shootout. It was as Jack’s daughter described it, “a senseless murder.”

And as is typical in these cases, there may be no video evidence of the altercation. The dash cams for the squad cars were not turned on, and while the police have said that the officers were carrying body cameras, nobody knows if they captured the death of Jack Yantis. This story sounded pretty bad last week, but as more facts and testimonies are presented to the public, it just keeps getting worse.

    Poor family… I’d hate to have to go through something like this, I’ve been harassed by the cops a bunch of times in my life, I’ve been lucky.

  • Mr Reynard

    Perfect training of the police in Gaza by the “most moral army” in the World… American, how does it feel to be Palestinian ??

    • jim_robert

      I’ll support your “Palestine” as soon as the Muslims give back Egypt to the Copts and Constantinople to the Greeks. Deal?

      Didn’t think so, hypocrite.

      • BHill

        Christians live in peace in those areas and have for centuries save the last few decades due to Israeli Mossad and CIA ops to drum up civil strife. Secondly 1/3 of the Palestinians Are Christian, you fool

        • Great reply!

        • Mr Reynard

          BHill.. I don’t think that jim is a fool, only that he’s watching too much ABCCNNNBCFOX crap & his mind is cluttered with the garbage coming out of ABCCNNNBCFOX. But I still have faith that he will see the TRUTH. Because he’s surfing the net, so there’s some hope in him…

          • jaguar

            I think you all fools ! Palestinians are Liars and aggressive towards Israel.. They launch missles into Israel, then cries when Israel fires back…they’ve snuck into Israel and killed some teenagers… So stop feeling empathy for Palestinians… They’re dumb animals!

          • …and you call ME and imbecile, lol!

          • Zen Arshlach

            typical lies you racist Israel ball licking pigs make against those you seek to destroy

          • I feel the same way Mr Reynard. I like Jim and think he is a very good, smart person but I also think that the propaganda is clouding his judgement on this one. I sympathize though, we can’t know everything and everyone knows certain truths that the others do not because they either do not know any better or are unwilling to put their coveted organizations/religions/beliefs under the same microscope as they would other topics/organizations. There are no saints in my world, only sinners.

        • jaguar

          Christians only have peace in Israel, not in Palestine!!! Get real !!! Liars!!

          israel was such a scam. They told us they’d go there if they just had their own homeland. So, we give them one, and instead of moving there; taking their fractional reserve banking system, media control, etc with them- they just use it as a base to run all their criminal operations from.

          Bastards genocided my family at Dresden 2/14/45. Machine gunning fleeing survivors of their 3 day phosphorus and napalm party rained down on mothers and children celebrating the Holy Days of shroves.

          • They needed quite a fictitious horror story to cover up war crimes like that and they sure did come up with one but more and more each day are realizing that it’s all lies and that the German people were the true victims in WWII.

      • Mr Reynard

        You really didn’t take the meaning of my post…
        #1 US police are trained by the most moral army in the world.. The one that shoot children & pregnant women!
        #2 That training then is used by the police against you American people..(that why I made the correlation with Palestinian people & American people)
        BTW How many unarmed people were killed by American police in 2015 ??
        Any idea ???

          • Another Thought Criminal

            I’m sorry officer. I’ll stop commenting to you- hate to endanger any more American “civilian” lives by typing to some idiot who is likely driving his patrol car while typing on his little cop computer.
            How many police are killed in car accidents every year? How many do you kill on accident; probably almost as close to how many you kill on purpose; which isn’t what this article is about?
            Anyway, just remember- Americans think the govt. (that’s you dumbass) are gonna come take their guns. Their reaction to that- record gun and ammo purchases. Who you think those guns are being bought to be used on??

          • TonysTake

            I don’t drive a patrol car or wear a uniform. If you want to know how many officers are killed and how, use Google. At the Bundy Ranch standoff, I was one of the 1000 people the BLM had their guns pointed at. The officers that did show up in mass gave the BLM an escort out of Nevada. You may want to look it up. I was there while the sunshine patriots were hiding behind their computer desks.
            I have yet to kill anyone so don’t lump all law enforcement officials into the same basket unless you are an anarchist.
            I hope the guns and ammo are used to protect the Republic and the Constitution to which I took an oath to protect and defend. There is no expiration date on that.

          • Another Thought Criminal

            Well, no way to know who you’re talking to on the other end of a computer. If you actually care about your oath to the constitution; then I don’t want to argue with or try to belittle you.
            However, just saying I’m stupid for pointing out that israel is involved in the militarization of the police when it is well documented says you either don’t know what is going on- or you’re trying to hide what is going on.

          • TonysTake

            Good. Then we can agree to disagree as patriots. My understanding of what officers were taught over there was more to do with combatting Islamic terrorism than enslaving the American people.
            I can assure there are more police than you realize that will refuse unconstitutional orders like say, disarming the American people. Take a look at the Constitutional Sheriffs Organization and the OathKeepers if you have any questions about where most of us in the rank and file align ourselves. The political Brass? Well, that is another story altogether. Just like in the military, there is a deep split between those who give orders and those expected to follow them.

          • TonysTake

            I don’t care what someone’s religion is unless part of their dogma is to kill me. When I run across someone who wants to kill me, my objective becomes to kill them first. That should be something even your pea sized brain can grasp.

          • Bill the eighth

            Ya ya Tony, ya ya. I understand from your posts you hate muslims and want to kill them.

          • arahn
          • TonysTake

            Does the Jewish state have a right to exist? Yes they do. Other than that, I don’t give a crap about what or how they worship, anymore than I give a crap about your faith if you have one. If you want to worry about something, look at islam, the people who have sworn to kill you.

          • Bill the eighth

            No, they don’t have the “right to exist”, they founded that despicable country by stealing land after WWII and the jews keep stealing more of it. Look at a map of Israel in 1950 and compare it to one today.

            I do agree the muslim scourge is a very serious threat to the entire western world and way of life. They have sworn to kill us, rape our women and force our children to convert to islam. And, they make no bones about it. If you can access some of the European news on YouTube, you can see these fanatics standing right in front of the camera and screaming exactly that.

          • TonysTake

            Watch your blood pressure. I don’t agree with you and never will. You can’t be a Christian because they believe the bible says that land was promised to the Jews by God. So what are you? And why start with 1950? Go back and look at the claims to that land that are 3000 years old.
            I believe that lands (boarders) belongs to those who are strong enough to keep them, period. Some disagree with that idea but history is on my side.

          • Zen Arshlach

            Jew morons played that same trick on the Native Americans and First Nations peoples with their shiploads of jew criminals accompanying Columbus to rape, pillage, and enslave the friendly and trusting Natives. The Palestinians and others are wise to their ways and are giving them a fight. Satan’s children don’t like that. God promised NOTHING to this murderous people and Santa Claus didn’t either. You bitches need to be expunged worldwide. Period. The BLASPHEMY you have murdered nations under has earned you eternal death, and nothing more.

          • Mr Reynard

            Not a jew ??Give you that, but a shabus goy for sure !

          • TonysTake

            You might wish to speak English. I know how to use google but it isn’t convenient. What religion someone is has no meaning to me unless part of their dogma is to kill me. When I run across someone who wants to kill me, my objective becomes to kill them first. That should be something even your pea sized brain can grasp.

          • Another Thought Criminal

            From the Talmud: “Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed.” -Abodah Zara 26b

            Yep, you got nothing to worry about. They specifically say they only want to kill the best of us.

          • TonysTake

            You may as well quote from the ranting’s of Charlie Manson because this actually pertains to keeping their religion and race pure. Much like the beliefs of the KKK. I don’t subscribe to such nonsense.

          • Another Thought Criminal

            No one said you did. However, to use your manson analogy; if he wasn’t in prison and was out doing his thing; then you might want to read his ramblings to see what he’s doing and to try to stop him.
            Just because you don’t subscribe to nonsense doesn’t mean others don’t.
            If you’ve been involved in trying to protect the constitution; you may want to look into who is trying to destroy the constitution.

          • TonysTake

            Yes, and most live in Washington D.C. Criminals who may claim to be one religion or the other but actually worship at the alter of money, power and control. Those are the people I worry about more than the Islamists.

          • arahn

            And why is Washington D.C. so full of dual citizens — the only dual citizens who are allowed to hold public office and yet high office!

          • TonysTake

            Because the sheeple allow it to happen. There are a couple of Republicans running for president that I could never vote for, for that very reason. “Good conservative constitutionalists” or not, they are not eligible to hold that high office in my opinion.

            People like Tony and his murdering Mossad Anti-Christs killed this rancher, the same way they machine gun 8 year old Palestinian boys running to their homes. Satan’s children wish to now thank America for handing them Europe and 1/2 the earth to them with their military might by slaughtering the descendents of those willing fools and turning their children against them. Now, the greatest prize, America, is in their sights and they will show no gratitude or mercy to the ranchers standing in the way of their big land grab. Now, we get to see what we helped.

          That Luciferian Cabal is a jewish cabal

        • anna miller

          You need to research the Cabal known as Freemasonry and the Jewish infiltration of the lodges. Where do you think the term “Cabal” originates?
          The term cabal derives from Cabala (a word that has numerous spelling variations), the Jewish mystical interpretation of the Hebrew scripture
          In other words, “Cabal” is a derivative from the occultic book of Kabbalah, sometimes spelled Cabbalah.

      • Tom Lowe

        I still have yet to meet any self-admitted Christian Zionists and believe their numbers are far fewer than many believe. But on the other hand, all of the sleeping sheeple watching MSM can be counted as such by default.

        • anna miller

          Oh Christian Zionists exist alright. I have several friends who subscribe to this nonsense. (although I think I just lost one-because I told her one too many times she is supporting the destruction of our nation) However, their numbers are inflated, and their numbers are actually beginning to fall, as Christians are increasingly recognizing the horrors inflicted upon the Palestinians. This is undoubtedly leading Christians to discover the Zionist ploy for world domination. Here is an article that helps explain this development.

When they break the law, they must be held accountable. They have no greater rights than a citizen. Are we more at risk here than anywhere else in the world? No. Do we enjoy greater freedom that anyone else? No. Are we less at risk than anywhere else in the world? Again, No. Are we more willing to fight for our freedoms than in other countries? That is yet to be determined.

          • TonysTake

            It really depends on if I come with my partner or a whole team. Witnesses are a problem you know. It’s bad enough if I have to eliminate a few others but as a team, I don’t have the option of saving the taxpayers the expense.

  • fgt4urights

    Sure glad they extort our tax dollars to pay for cameras they don’t even use and rarely turn on. If this country were sane, moral and abided by some rule of law, these officers should be fired for not turning on their cameras when this is part of their job and the very reason millions were spent for them to use during situations such as this.

    • Another Thought Criminal

      It should at least be used as evidence of a presumption of guilt if they turn them off.

      • fgt4urights

        I know and completely agree with that as they had the ability and every opportunity to show what happened, prove their innocence and justify their reaction so all could see.

  • Drob3

    Just sickening. Another family devastated by what seems to be thugs with badges. I guess citizens need to be aware and prepared to defend themselves and their families against this kind of thing. So sad and I’m sure it will be deemed justified. What happened to serve and protect.

    • SonsofAnarchy5768

      The “supreme court” has ruled they have no duty to protect and serve only to enforce “laws”
      which most laws are in opposition with our Constitution so they are null and void and they are not even to be called laws

      • Drob3

        Thank you SonsofAnarchy5678. Looks like the supreme court ruled on this in 2005.
        I agree that unconstitutional laws are null and void. I believe it’s up to the people to defend against unconstitutional acts.
        Who else is going to protect us? It’s either that or give up our rights. I don’t see much of a choice. People need to stand together and support friends and neighbors in these situations, if we dont, it could be us next.
        There is currently an injustice taking place against a family of ranchers in Oregon (Hammond family). If you want to get your blood pressure up, read up on that one.

      These swine are corporate servants, not public servants.
      As is usual nowadays, the phrase “Serve and Protect” means exactly the opposite of its assumed meaning.
      The elite is being served and protected, not you.
      The jew delights in his mockery of the goyim; hence one of his favourite recent introductions; ie “Co-worker”.
      We are considered, “Insects, cattle at best, human excrement”.
      Hence “jaguar”‘s comment above; “Palestinians are dumb animals”.
      There is no place for the jew in this world.
      As multitudes have realised, throughout the ages.

      • I noticed the elitism/supremacism of jaguar also.

      • Drob3

        I agree. These corporate servants are not there to protect the citizens. The elite consider us to be parasites. How long will it be until they decide to rid the planet of parasites. I think it’s already well underway. How long will it be before enough people wake up and realize what’s going on?

  • frankw

    When will these thugs with badges receive the justice they deserve? I’m sick and disgusted with reading of these events almost daily. The system is broken and corrupt and I’m afraid only active pushback by the families and friends of these victims will have an effect.

    • Rick E.

      When they die, that’s when they’ll receive justice!

    • Maddog

      It will require all of us and that’s the problem, no one will get off their ass and do anything. There were only 2000 of us at Bunkerville and the call went out nation wide. How long will the sheeple wait? I bet they will cry when there is no one left to help them. Too late then.

      • Tom Lowe

        There is a better issue awaiting than Bunkerville that will attract the masses to act.

        The Bundy family erred tragically in not obtaining legal title to their lands before the BLM came along. And if they had obtained legal title to the land, they would have had to pay property taxes on it anyway. So: grazing fees or property taxes–ya pay rent one way or another. In return you get some roads and some services. This is called ‘civilization’.

        Bundy was wrong, and all who followed him fell into the Rule-of Law pit

        A much better issue to rally around awaits.

        • timwebb1000 .

          The 1783 Treaty of Peace signed between King George and the Founding Fathers stipulated that no man might own land; as it all belongs to the Vicar of Christ so-called, who also had a representative at the talks.
          This usurpation of basic title is rendered apparently legitimate by the scripture “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein”.
          This loss of title reflects and continues the reality encountered by King John in 1213, who signed away his title to England in favour of the papacy; in exchange for a promise by the Pope not to excommunicate him, and thus damn his soul to eternal torment, at least according to hopelessly flawed Catholic theology.
          Hence the baronial creation of Magna Carta in 1215.
          As we understand it still today, we are not the owners of anything, even our persons; we are merely licenced users.
          And interestingly enough, the very word “persons” is legally defined as a beast, an inanimate object.
          How we have fallen from God’s original plan for us.

        • Maddog

          Myself and others were not there because we thought Bundy was right or wrong. We were there because the government sent snipers and contractors to steal a mans property and murder him. I will no longer allow this in my country. I have heard every excuse way individuals failed to participate, yours is another. I fell into nothing but forcing the fucking government to follow the law. If this is not obvious to you, maybe you need to check your idea of freedom.

          • I am appreciative and thankful for what you did, much respect.

    • Tom Lowe

      Well, the father of the main witness Rowdy Paradis is one of the three County Commissioners. That might help some.

  • horse777res

    There would be two DEAD DONUT GRAZERS!!!!!!

  • StevetheHun

    How is that not murder on the part of the cops?

    How is that not criminal conspiracy to commit murder on the part of the cops? This damns their whole police department. They lied. They’re covering up 2nd degree murder for sport.

    How are the cops NOT homicidal sociopaths who shouldn’t be running around with sane people?

  • Dan Morgan

  • jim_robert

    There are a LOT of good police out there, many of them true peace officers, which is what they should be. Then there are the bad. Non-violence by the police whenever possible, and all of us, is the way to go. It sounds like these two should be investigated and like those two that shot that autistic boy in Louisiana, be incarcerated.

    • Tom Lowe

      I do recall the days when cops were generally pretty good guys. They were as good at psychology as they were with the law, and often made very perceptive, wry comments that one could learn from and keep. Now they are all incorrigible bullies. Things have definitely changed.

  • BHill

    Thanks for reporting this! The police involved need to be wearing orange jumpsuits!!

  • Loisteehee

    Time to clean house at that police station.

  • Another murder by DHS trained enforcers. They are trained to treat anybody with a gun as the enemy, to be shot immediately. It’s probably safer just to go ahead and fulfill their dream, and send them to hell.

    RIP USA the terrorist have taken over from the inside and they are domestic! Just a few bad apples my ASS! THE ENTIRE TREE IS ROTTED! There are good cops pfff! How do you tell a good terrorist from a bad one…YOU DON’T! If u wear them colors you are in that terrorist organization. There are no good cops cause the so called good ones cover for the bad making them BAD. COP = Criminals On Patrol

  • Ernst Iliov Stavro Blofeld

    In 3rd world countries it’s common knowledge that you flee when the police force is about to arrive, doesn’t matter if you are the victim or the perpetrator.

    • Tom Lowe

      If you flee in the USA, you get plugged in the back 5 or 7 or 44 times … If you make it past that, then the helicopters come …. And if you make it past that, here comes the tank and the sniper team.

  • doucyet

    Don’t ever be in physical possession of a weapon in he presence of the police. It gives them the chance to do to you what happened to this man and without witnesses they will most certainly get away with it.

    If indeed they did instigate this shooting, I hope these two cops rot in prison………………..

    • Tom Lowe

      There were eyewitnesses right there and they will still get away with it. Scary.

  • whiteberry

    He’s a self-sustaining person… we all know how the government feels about that. Serve and protect their best interests, which is dependence and oppression.

  • Tom

    One small detail none of the other commenters have mentioned: The article states that the cops had “shot the bull in the gut”. You would have to have an IQ lower than room temperature to not know you put an animal down by shooting it in the brain (not just the “head”). I’ll never forget the first time I watched a custom butcher begin the slaughtering process on a steer on our ranch when I was a kid. He walked up to the steer with the most beat-up single shot .22LR bolt action I’ve ever seen, held it about three feet away from the steer’s forehead, and fired. The animal dropped dead, all four legs collapsing simultaneously. Remember, these cops were packing at least .40 S&W, and probably an AR-15, both with many times the muzzle energy of a .22LR.

    These deputies were serving (my apologies for using that term so loosely) in a community where just this kind of injured livestock situation is bound to happen from time to time. They needed to know how to deal with it, if not by upbringing then by specific training. But they probably weren’t raised in a ranching community and may have arrived from some distant city, where any training they received was in how to be an occupying army for the corporations and federal government.

    • The story reminds me of this scene.

      • Tom

        Exactly. It would take a Hollywood screenwriter who had never been near the solemn duty of putting down an injured animal to find any humor in this scene. I winced and then teared up to watch this idiot putting multiple rounds into the non-fatal underside of the cow’s jaw. BTW, the actor in this, Jim Carrey, is another vocal Hollywood gun-grabber who knows nothing about guns.

      • Another Thought Criminal

        Wow, no wonder jim carrey hates guns.

  • Rex

    And lets not forget why Mr. Yantis was there in the first place…

    The same group of murderers who shot him…
    are the ones that called him there.

  • davol

    Police have just been total pigs in the last few years. We have a serious problem here fellow Americans and until we re-train our police forces and teach them not to be so racist all the tim … what? Oh … so this guy was white? Sorry wrong story for this comment. Never mind.

    2 MORE mental PIGMYS BEHIND A TIN BADGE, I hope the bastards ROT in their own Jail

  • Public_Citizen

    I have the utmost sympathy for the family in this not just tragic but horrific situation.
    Looks to me like we need Federal Laws that mandate an automatic charge of Civil Rights Violation for any officer wearing a body camera that is turned off or “malfunctions” that is involved in any situation where an arrest or other outcome involving the generation of paperwork occurs. Ditto for the dashcam not being turned on, even if it doesn’t capture video of an incident the audio stream may provide valuable information in determining what ~really~ happened, not the after the fact “memory” of some uniform amped up on a self induced overload of adrenaline.

    • Tom Lowe

      But of late we are seeing people murdered by cops on camera and the cop still gets off. See case of Linda Mearkle in Pennsylvania. Cameras will record these crimes fortunately and justice may be served sooner or later, and hopefully it will. For now things are in a very bad state.

      • Public_Citizen

        While they may escape prosecution at the state level, with video evidence, or the lack thereof in the above stated scenarios, there is still Federal prosecution to face.
        At the Federal level they don’t have the “fig leaf” available to cover over their mis-deeds that is available in many state jurisdictions.

  • Douglas Zoubek

    Those pigs need to be arrested and charged. This is where the Federal Government needs to be in charge and seeing that justice prevails.

    • Beowulf73

      the Feds are in charge………..you want justice? Justice was served by the Feds as they are the ones who militarize the police.

      Was justice done at Ruby Ridge?

      Was justice done in Waco?

      Was justice done in Dallas? Looked more like revenge to me.

      Justice through the Federal Government? Wake up and smell the end of the Constitution.

  • anna miller

    This story, and the recent cops killing the man and his little boy, make me think these cops are not even human. Why weren’t these cops wearing those new cameras, which record all incidents? I just can’t even imagine this horror. I don’t even recognize my own country anymore. People are losing their minds.

    • Tom Lowe

      It was not a crime scene, so I highly doubt their body cameras had been turned on. Hopefully a dashcam was on.

      • anna miller

        I don’t know what the instructions are for cops turning on body cameras. But at this point, there should be a mandate, requiring cop body cameras to be engaged during any police call. That would be a common sense response to the public outcry over police brutality.

  • BR549

    Let’s just say that if the officers cannot corroborate their story with the videos they are SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING, and someone has died as a result of their intervention, they are automatically assumed to be guilty.

    Maybe that will light a fire under their asses.

  • James

    Well the American cops have one thing in there favor. They were there and out of there vehicle. So all there training said they need to shoot something or some one. Also a Bull has 4 legs they might have thought it was a dog.

  • fgt4urights

    I agree with both and would take anything, anything rather then nothing, but this is no accident and being ignored while being done intentionally. Before cameras were even handed out to the first department, civil rights groups were stating this was going to happen. The Justice Department along with the police department could easily force them to turn them on or face repercussion. Anything is better then nothing and it will keep getting ignored as they will resist to do the right thing as the only time they do the right thing is when the people force change.

  • marlio

    What poor, poor judgement these policemen, if you can call them that had. No common sense at all and they let a bull die in mysery for two hours. WHY? They have no good reason not to put the bull out of its misery!!!!

  • fgt4urights

    Unfortunately, if you can get away with killing a completely innocent person while keeping you pension, they will never lose their pension because of any remark, no matter how bad or horrible, although I agree with you. They will resist till the very end and are not beholden to the very citizens they are supposed to be serving. This is why it’s up to the citizens to film them and the very reason crimes are being exposed and not hidden, even then most still don’t get punished.
    Asset forfeiture is extortion and criminal at the highest level and a disgrace to this country as it is being used to fund the governments criminal behavior. Story after story of cops living rent free in homes, using nice cars as personal gains, buying margarita machines for their office… the list is extensive. Your personal possession which is seized has to prove it’s innocent, not you. What the F’k!! Sounds crazy, because it is, but true. The worst part is a large amount of people are completely innocent and can’t defend themselves as they lose their life’s possessions. This money is being used to fund their criminal behavior, this is why they stopped as you stated because once they couldn’t get the money for themselves any longer, it just became a waste of time to them.
    The system is rotten to the core at every level, and the surveillance state is being used to violate rights and target innocent people, which is another subject matter which plays into everything and not being discussed, but being kept hidden…for now.

    • Tom Lowe

      “even then most still don’t get punished”

      Keep filming, everyone, and one day they will ALL be punished. I guarantee it.

  • TanDaLayO

    This has happened over and over and over…when you give thugs power..and do not check them for mental health …you have this..so don’t be surprised… It’s happening daily..at low and high levels..worldwide.When you give power to others…they forget ethics…and they use that power to satisfy their mental illness. The men involed…and it’s usually men (I’m NOT a feminist..just a fact, evidence finder)…when the men involved are turned on by large groups of people…there could be justice for this good family…but NOT until the people make some noise..and kick in the ethics. Too many have been brainwashing to think there are ‘authorities’…in this world. WE are our own authority…no one else… This kind of tragedy will continue until the people have an ephiphany…and come to their senses….

  • jaguar

    Can you imagine witnessing this, then you can’t even go help your loved one as they lay dying because they handcuffed you!! These cops deserve to die !!!
