Video: Cops Raid Marine’s Home, Beat and Taser Him Because He Didn’t Notice His Wife’s Haircut

Time to wake up…

Yep, you read that headline correctly.

Nowadays you can’t even have an argument over failing to notice your wife’s new haircut in Police State USSA without cops possibly breaking down your door and beating you senseless for it.

That’s what happened to an otherwise innocent Marine veteran in California after he got into a loud argument with his wife because she said he didn’t notice she had gotten her hair done.

After shouting at each other, Fernando Del Valle, 38, locked himself in his bedroom to go to sleep. No violence between he and his wife had occurred. The neighbors, however, called the cops.

This 68-second cell phone video Del Valle managed to capture shows what happened after two Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies burst down his front door and then his bedroom door and order a man sleeping in his bed to “stand up”.

“Sir, I’m just laying here trying to sleep…,” Del Valle began, refusing to exit his bed. Instead he turned his smart phone video camera on and trained it on the cops, even warning them, “I got you on video. Go ahead. Tase me.”

So one did.

Former Deputy Scott Thorne, 40, steps forward and proceeds to tase and beat a man wearing nothing but shorts in his own home in his own bed who did nothing wrong other than have a loud argument with his wife over her haircut.

Although the entire thing was not caught on Del Valle’s video, he suffered two or three more tasings and more than a dozen baton blows, many of which can be heard on the video along with Del Valle’s wife yelling at the cops that her husband “is not doing anything!”

In sum, these cops burst into a couple’s home and assaulted an innocent man on the sole word of a neighbor’s noise complaint just assuming the man was committing spousal abuse sight unseen without doing any further investigation into the matter at all.


The cops did arrest Del Valle and take him in, but it was only at that point they realized they had no evidence that any crime whatsoever had taken place and they had to let Del Valle go because… he didn’t do anything.


Del Valle did, however, end up with neurological damage and a separated shoulder according to his lawyer.

The saddest part is that even the police department recognized the excessive use of force in this case almost immediately from the officers’ own bodycams. Then again, as it turns out, Thorne should have never been employed as a police officer in Sonoma County or anywhere else in the first place, considering he had already been let go from previous departments for… that’s right, excessive use of force.

You can also hear Del Valle shout repeatedly, “Call my lawyer!”

So he did.

Del Valle has now filed a lawsuit against the department seeking damages above $25,000. Despite the fact that Sonoma County terminated Thorne, Thorne is trying to argue he was in the right in this situation. Even his attorney doesn’t seem to agree with him, telling the media “His [as in, Thorne’s] position is he followed procedure.”

What procedure is that exactly? Because it isn’t investigating crimes apparently.

    The next step for big oil/big govt is to disarm us all!! This guy should have head shot both criminals!! This would have done society a HUGE favor!!

      100% in agreement with you JJ

    • SleepKnowMore

      What goes around, comes around.

  • Uncle Sham

    i guess they are just handing out badges like candy

  • until ALL police departments can police their own they have NO business policing ANY one else!!

    • Since all police departments are just standing armies, we’d be better off to enforce the Third Amendment and get on with life.

      • I have to agree, although disarming them and deporting n!ggers and wetbacks who commit the most crime would do wonders for the country.

        • “(N)iggers and wetbacks” don’t commit anywhwere near the economic value of crime that each elected official does, and because they control the judiciary, they will never have to appear in court or do any time in jail. Until Americans understand the Constitution, they won’t recognize the solutions that it offers.

          • They ARE siphoning a lot of money from the taxpayer, and the elected official, as corrupt as he is, doesn’t directly threaten the safety of my family. They coined the term “white flight” for a reason. Just take a look at Harlem and Detroit.

            This is coming from a mulatto with black, white, and Hispanic ancestry. If you were to look at my skin, you would say that I am brown, but I also have Caucasoid features. That isn’t to say that ALL blacks are thugs, and all whites are inherently moral, but there is a problem with certain ethnic groups in terms of crime and poverty, and that has to be addressed.

            These groups only serve to leech off the American taxpayer, not contributing anything in return. They are unable to understand traditional American values, and only seek to instill a government that gives them excessive amounts of money for reparations.

            I use racist terms because it is merely an honest reflection of what they are. I know plenty of hardworking and intelligent blacks and Hispanics who share the same views I do, yet are ostracized within their own community for striving to create better lives for themselves.

            We are all Americans, but it cannot be denied that there is a problem with certain groups. It is hard to be united when (((they))) continuously divide us and leech off certain communities.

          • A lot is said about herd immunity with respect to vaccination, but I rely on what I’d call herd conservatism to protect me from the majority of things that those who live in big cities fear. I’m still getting used to the fact that I can leave the key in the ignition and the doors unlocked, largely because I live in a county where there are 14 guns per capita with the lowest rate of violent crime in the nation. That said, there is a great deal of complacency here with respect to compliance with the traffic laws, including a very high rate of drunk driving and DUI arrests. I can legally carry a firearm into most of the buildings in the county, including the county offices, excepting the courts, open or concealed, without a permit of any kind. That said, firearms are seldom seen aside from on LEO’s gunbelts.
            I have a Glock 19 and a Mossberg 12 gauge in the van, and neither has been out of their case in several months. It would take me awhile to load the shotgun, the Glock is in a padded case with a loaded magazine next to it, but I’d have to pull the case out of a bunch of stuff. I’m not a shooter, gunner, or hunter, even though I’m surrounded by them.

          • This is why the Second Amendment was enacted.

          • The Second Amendment has no enforcement clause.

          • It is implied that people are meant to enforce it themselves.

          • Just as We the People had been expected to enforce the Constitution, which the majority abdicated from immediately, as Thomas Jefferson knew they would when he wrote that “(t)he spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may become persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated that the time for fixing every essential right, on a legal basis, is while our rulers are honest, ourselves united. From the conclusion of this war we shall be going down hill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war, will be heavier and heavier, till our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.”

    Next time just shoot the cops in the face immediately when they enter.

  • Simon says

    I want a payday too maybe I should argue with my wife more

  • RMS1911

    and the dumb pigs wonder why nobody likes them and wants to hurt/kill them
    and don’t give me that bull about good pigs if their were good ones there wouldn’t be any bad ones running around for long. and look at the scumbags who hire these scumbags they are culpable as well.

    • Phil_Ossifer

      The scary part was that Thorne, the piglet who did most of the Tasering and baton beatdown, had a record of using excessive force with other police departments. This had to be known to the Sonoma County cops prior to hiring him but they handed him a badge and gun anyway. I know most police departments have problems finding qualified recruits but to knowingly hire someone with a demonstrated history of violence shows how little they think of the people they supposedly “serve and protect.”

      • David E

        if I remember correctly california has a messed up law that keeps excessive force information sealed. It can only be known in the jurisdiction an officer used excessive force in and they cannot tell anybody.

        • roger

          that is just stupid as a foot locker full of bowling balls..:[

        • Phil_Ossifer

          Maybe…but, then, how did the reporters find out about the prior excessive force complaints for the article? And I agree, that is messed up. Complaints that have no substance are one thing; complaints that resulted in disciplinary action are a different matter…or should be.

          • David E

            well, police departments aren’t the best source of information to begin with. The law only applies to government. The media may have already covered this cop and his original excessive force incident.

      • archer

        That fact alone should get the victim a decent payout in a civil suit. Never should’ve been hired.

  • Phil_Ossifer

    “If you hear something, say something…” Goddamn busybody neighbors who actually believe they’re doing a necessary civic duty when they drop a dime on a married couple arguing in a loud voice. I have known people who lived in neighborhoods where one house on the block was obviously a drug den, they called the cops on several occasions over a long period of time and NOTHING was done about it. That speaks volumes about police priorities.

    • RMS1911

      they’re poosies.

    • Apparently no one likes to interfere anymore.

  • suse

    Unfortunately, this is the kind of shit that backfires. Like “father’s rights,” they jail women too – for fear of looking biased. You can thank your local feminists. Now, both sides are in trouble with the “establishment.”

    • PopDeGator

      Some women do get jailed but very rarely. In any domestic dispute the cops automatically assume the man is at fault and act accordingly. Makes you wonder what they do when a gay couple has a fight.

  • marine1

    I guarantee you if it were me it would cost this police department and this cop a LOT more than 25,000 dollars. I would make sure that every pay check this cop got in the future would be sent to my bank account.

    • ArmyVet

      Hoorah, brother. I would have shot that son of a bitch the minute he crossed the doorway. That’s real ballsy to go into a man’s home without a warrant and proceed to beat the hell out of him for no goddamn reason, and a former marine at that. That marine should have lit their asses up. If I’m gonna die, then so are those mutha fuckers.

  • roger

    yep, they need to be cock-shot, each and every one of these costumed and badged mother effers

  • rb s

    Same as the hotel that assumed the 13 year old girl was be exploited, they called super blues and they hatrassed the crap outa the DAD who was taking his DAUGHTER on a surprise trip.

  • Major Payne

    Go ahead and Taze me, ZAP, :-0 Seriously I would be asking a lot more than $25,000.00.

      That’s the minimum, notice it says: “above $25,000″…

      • Major Payne

        You are correct.

  • whydowanttoknow

    the moral to this story is, don’t live in the city where the houses are so close you can hear what is going on inside your neighbor’s home.

  • Mark Williams

    Just like “Moderate Muslims” need to condemn the actions of the Jihadists, Good LEO MUST stop the abusive power hungry monsters on ALL Police & Sheriff departments. STOP hiring these out of control Jackboot Thugs!

  • ArmyVet

    I’m beginning to fucking hate cops. Too much of this shit has been going on too damn long. This goddamn abuse needs to stop before more cops start fucking dying.

  • ArmyVet

    How would these power hungry assholes like it if we broke down their door and did what they did? Cops that act this way deserves to be treated no different than a criminal breaking into your house. Kill them on the spot. Maybe if we stood up to these pricks with equal force, they would think twice before pulling this shit again. Law breaking assholes.

  • Muriel Lincoln

    This is a lot worse that just $25,000.

  • Kendo

    I recommend a simple “NO TRESPASSING” sign posted outside your door/property. May not stop anyone in the heat of the moment, but will give your lawyer a bargaining chip to work with. Will be the best $2 investment you can make.

    • MorganThePirate

      “NO TRESPASSING” doesn’t apply to cops. They’ll just lie and say they thought they saw or heard something.

      • Kendo

        You may want to ask your lawyer for advice on this one.

  • Mohawk77

    Somebody publish these cops names and addresses right here please.

  • Meltonmark

    Another reason for men never to marry.

    What kind of mickey mouse Police Dept. hires without background checks and references? Stupid asses should be sued out of existence.
