>>Police in Fresno, California are facing
scrutiny over their handling of a 17 year old boy, his name is Lyndon Wallace. And eight months ago, police were called to
break up a party when this incident occurred. Now the way the cops described what happened
was very different from what the body camera surveillance shows us. And I’m gonna show you the video. I’m just gonna warn you right now that it’s
incredibly graphic. So let’s take a look and then I’ll tell you
what the police said happened which was not evident in this tape.>>Hit him 204 Fresno police department.>>Be advised place to go hey don’t touch
my little brother.>>Hey hold up.>>Hey hey.>>He’s fighting me.>>Put your hands on the back, put your hands
behind your back.>>Get him on the ground, get on the ground.>>Get on the ground now.>>So as you can see there were, the victim
here was not posing any type of threat to the cop. He had his hands clearly where you can see
it. And the way that the cops have described,
the incident is completely different. Now the officer who started punching the victim
here is Christopher Martinez. He punched him several times in the face and
wrestled him to the ground which you can see in that video. The January 23 incident unfolded after police
arrived at Fenix Apartments, just north of downtown Fresno, to conduct a probation search. At that point, they start breaking up this
party. More than a dozen men within the second-floor
apartment were ordered outside, including Wallace. That’s the young man who was beaten by the
cops. Who is seen on video being searched, as his
peers watch from the ground. In the police report though, Christopher Martinez,
whose the cop, said Wallace was not listening when instructed to sit with the others. He alleged Wallace walked in the opposite
direction and became combative when confronted. In reports written after the incident, Officer
Christopher Martinez accused Wallace of resisting arrest and fighting back. The punches, he wrote, were necessary to restrain
him. Let me give you a little more. This is what else he said after the incident. I believed Wallace was going to attempt to
flee down the stairs. I gave Wallace a chance to sit on his own,
but he still did not sit down as I told him to, Martinez wrote. When Martinez grabbed the teen’s right arm
to regain control, he said, Wallace pushed me back and took a fighting stance. I was in fear Wallace was going to push me
and other officers over the side railing as he was pushing forward. I punched Wallace approximately three times,
which was a lie, he punched him more, in the face in order to get him off of me and to
back him up. Now the police chief has seen the body camera
surveillance and says that it’s troubling. There’s now an internal investigation, but
I wanna open it up to you guys.>>So yeah, okay first of all watching that
is very graphic, just the blame lies saying punching three times when per the body cam
whose close to ten. It was eight, right? Secondly, I was saying to London about this
before we went to air, I have several uncles who are law enforcement professionals, namely,
police officers. I asked them in what situation, what circumstance
would it require to use that type of excessive force to restrain someone. And they said there wouldn’t be, unless he
had some kind of weapon or he was being blatantly violent. Per that video, Wallace who was 17 years old,
wasn’t even remotely violent. Yes, if someone had put their hands on me
in that kind of heightened situation, after you’re at a party with friends. And a barrage of cops show up, bearing in
mind how we feel about law enforcement in 2019.>>Exactly.>>And being a man of color, that’s going
to put you on high alert.>>And I wanna note, Wallace had no weapons
on him, no drugs on him, he was doing nothing wrong.>>No affiliation.>>The probation issue which the cops were
called in for had nothing to do with him whatsoever.>>You can see clearly in that video that
he didn’t pose a threat to the cop.>>Right.>>But the cop saw this as an opportunity
to start throwing punches, and you’re right. He threw way more than three punches. And I’m glad that in this case, there’s body
camera surveillance that we can turn to, so we can see what actually happened, and this
isn’t rare. I mean there how many stories have we reported,
on where the police account of what occurred is completely different from what surveillance
shows.>>Well to them, I hate to say it but they
are only mistake was the body cam footage got out.>>Mm-hm.>>That’s the only thing that they’re upset
about, that you found out that now if you looked at the longer video it showed he was
being searched. He had his hands up like this behind this
thing.>>Right.>>And then the cop said go over there, and
he was walking with one cop sent him, where another cop grabbed him. And just the story, if you look at the number
of police who are standing there, and how small that thing is. Just he was gonna push us over the landing
and it gets back to this thing, and you know about this cuz you and I both have it, the
superhuman strength, right? Must be another black man with superhuman
strength that was gonna push three or four cops over a railing all by himself. So I had to beat him down, it’s ridiculous. These lies, they don’t even put any effort
into it. And the only reason they got caught is because
it’s body cam video got out cuz sometimes they say, the body cam didn’t work. I’ve heard that story, and I too know police
officers. And one friend of mine, she said, this happens
because they’re bullies.>>Right.>>She said these are usually officers who
are not educated, not trained. They’re basically security guys with guns
and they bully people. You grab this guy, even, and I understand
what you’re saying about being heightened and defending yourself. But even in that this is a no win situation,
right?>>Yeah.>>When you’re surrounded by cops and a cop
grabs you, you don’t fight back because you know you can’t win. Now yeah, if you were on drugs or some crazy
like that you might. But in this situation does anyone really believe
this kid was about to swing on a cop?>>No.>>No.>>And he barely even fought back, you watch
the video.>>He tried to protect himself.>>He tried to protect himself and by the
way he was arrested for resisting arrest. Prosecutors did not charge him because there
was, I’m guessing, this is my speculation. They saw the body camera footage and realize
what was really going on, they let him go. As I mentioned earlier, he had nothing illegal
on him whatsoever. The punches left the teen with a broken nose
and other facial injuries and I hope he sues the police department for that. Later in the video, Wallace is shown bleeding
from his face which you saw in the footage that we showed you. And yeah, this happens far too often. And when the question is asked, when there’s
video footage showing an innocent unarmed individual running away from a cop. And the question is, why was he running from
the cop, he’s innocent? This is why.>>Exactly.>>If you have been treated like this, brutalized
like this by authorities your entire life, you’re not gonna trust them, you’re gonna
fear them.>>And that’s why I don’t understand why,
what law enforcement doesn’t get about that. And you know it’s so sad that I have to find
the silver lining in this because the silver lining in this is that he wasn’t murdered
or is dead.>>Right.>>Because far too many that’s what happens
to people of color margins. Because the people, when they are mishandled
by authorities, they end up missing and dead. So again, it said I have to say, well hey,
he’s still alive.>>I know.>>That’s how low the bar is.>>Yeah.>>And he is suing, it says in here that they
filed a lawsuit. And what’s gonna happen if it follows the
pattern, the city’s gonna pay them off, they’re gonna pay off his family. And if this cop does get fired, he’ll get
hired by another police department right next door.>>Yep.>>You know that, I mean we’ve seen this over
and over. And it’s a shame that when we were talking
about it off camera I said, there’s no news here. Sadly, there’s no news here. It’s just that you could just title this story
again or like you said another.>>Another city.>>You know another team, another city. Another kid and and it is bad and it reflects
bad on the police. And police aren’t all bad but until the good
cops get rid of the bad cops, this is what’s gonna happen. That’s the only ones who can stop this, where
the other cops who were there who were like, no man, you can’t just beat him up.

    Exactly why people are going to start killing them all. Good and bad. I don’t give a damn how anyone feels about me saying this but I honestly cannot wait until the real cops start destroying their corrupt racist coworkers. If I ever see something like that happening I will not hesitate to put every single bullet in my gun into the cops head. I’ll be heading to prison forever but my message will last even longer

    No more of these lawsuits, no more pressing charges that allow Tyrants to get a slap on the wrist. They are constantly allowed to "resign" so a next door department picks them up. The only thing to stop this is to put these Tyrants down. Too many times you see 2-3 Tyrants assault/murder Black, Ethnic, or Poor people and they are surrounded by citizens. These Tyrants are gonna one day do this or mouth off and the crowd is gonna snap and execute them. They are afraid and need to be, because 2043 Colonists will be the minority, and they have to wonder will they be shown the same treatment, or will there be mercy? These Tyrants keep acting this way and mercy gonna go out the door be warned your time is running out better get yourself right before it's too late.

    I work as a dean for a high school in Brooklyn, I deal with 17 years old all the time and I’ve experienced how disrespectful and nasty they can get sometimes, way more than this kid in the video. But guess what? In every situation I keep in mind that I am the adult and that my job is to deescalate the situation. This officer couldn’t wait to “give this kid a lesson” that is obvious and he should be fired and indicted.

    Racist and/or steroid raging cops add to the local government deficit, they mess up and our tax money bails them ou because the lawsuit is against the city. They should force the cop to pay majority of the lawsuit! That will give them something to think about before they punch, kick or shoot! That money could go to better training, psychological assessments, ect

    This is not a race issue — IN THIS PARTICULAR INSTANCE. This is the cops doing what they do. This kind of cop is an "equal opportunity employer". Now, the other cops with him, what did they say happened? Did they go along with the lie? Of course they did. #1 Most cops are Thugs. ANY therapist will tell you there is not much different between a cop and a criminal mentality. #2 Cops are stupid – as evidenced by the fact that the cops knows he is wearing a body cam yet lies about the whole thing even though the bodycam just recorded it all. BUT, the Supreme Court said they could hire stupid people. #3 Cops are corrupt – as evidenced by the fact there were other cops present who went along with it all. And the fact they all were not immediately fired.

    a single punch to the face can kill.
    so that should count as attempted murder if you ask me.
    so he admitted to 3 attempts to murder a child and actually did 8 attempts..
    if you don't understand how dangerous a blow to the face can be then you shouldn't work as a police officer!

    also if someone is arrested for resisting arrest and that person is not charged then that should prompt an immediate automatic investigation… if force was used then that should prompt obligatory disciplinary measures for the cop if they don't charge the guy.

    "Bad cops" always lie. "Good cops" always support "Bad cops".

If it is your position that the "Blue line" must stand together no matter what the "Bad cops do", then I have no use for you! I may fear you, what you can do to hurt me, but I will never respect or support you. I would rather live in a society with NO cops then one with "Bad cops".

    We need to start suing the office himself as well as the police department start hitting their pockets and this shit would stop.

    Internal affairs should be manned by ex-cons who were framed by dirty cops!

    There's no doubt the cops went way the fck overboard in that situation, the cops' story was well and truly wrong, and someone definitely needs a suspension for that. The guy was clearly getting ready to sit down, clearly had nothing in his hands from the body cam's angle, and was not "combative" in an aggressive way.

    BUT, your assessment of the guy's actions are clearly incorrect as well. No, his hands weren't clearly in sight; he used his right hand to lift his shirt, and his left hand was lifted near his waistband – the cop couldn't possibly see his hands from that angle. And no, he wasn't going along with what the cop was telling him, he was pulling his arms away which I'm sorry to say is STILL considered "combative" despite being a defensive reaction.

    That all being said, no this probably wouldn't've happened to a white guy who lifted his shirt as he was about to sit down (this coming from a white guy).

    Regarding Alonso Bodden's final statement; whatever "good cops" there are, unfortunately they can't step forward and intervene or whistleblow or what have you, because of the nature of their job of always having to put themselves in harm's way. They have to rely on their fellow cops, good or bad, to keep them from being killed by the genuine criminals. But what happens if their fellow cops, good or bad, see them as a person willing to betray them to Internal Affairs? Someone willing to step forward and inform on them when bad cops do wrong, or when good cops mis-assess a situation? Someone willing to serve them up to investigators to have their life ruined, by either a meaningful choice or an accidental split decision? Anyone, good or bad, would be afraid to have their livelihood or even freedom ripped from them by someone they trusted. So the answer is, they'll probably be served up to the genuine criminals to be killed. Maybe the bad ones inform a group of criminals where to find the whistleblower at a particular time/place. Maybe the 'good' ones respond to a call for help not quite as fast as they normally would. I'M NOT SAYING THIS IS JUSTIFIED, but I /am/ saying this is the mentality behind the blue wall. No one squeals on eachother destroying eachothers' lives, and no one allows eachother to die by criminals' hands if they can help it. And if there's a brick in the blue wall that doesn't hold up, they'll make sure that brick gets replaced, one way or another.

    Body cams are the only way to safely pierce that blue wall, if you regulate them to ALWAYS be on and uncovered. Cops can't turn away from criminals while they beat them, so the bad ones get caught, and the good ones don't have to risk being left alone in deadly situations.

    Frankly, I'd advocate for always-on individual GPS tracking too, to account for 100% of their time on the clock earning the taxpayers' dime, but some might consider that a step to far, I dunno.

    I want to hear from the higher ups, when is it ok, for citizens to fight back when the bastards are out of line! Citizens, cannot continue to get beat down then get a city settlement.

    Cops don’t have the right to force people out of a party without a warrant or just cause – the cops essentially held those kids hostage while humiliating them by making them sit in a line against a wall – what happened to please turn down the music and noise there has been a complaint and then leave!

    Your never getting rid of bad cops or back to the good ol days of community policing unless every cop is vetted by those who know them the best, YEP the so called bad guys, in the presents of a judge who is widely excepted as fair, honest and not in the cops pocket. OK pigs don't fly and I haven't stepped in any rocking horse shit lately so good luck AmeriKKKA your gonna need it.
