It’s never okay for law enforcement to beat an unarmed man into a coma. As of today no mainstream media reports about this incident have surfaced. Black leaders in the Twin Cities are aware of the incident – but have chosen to remain silent. No press conferences, no Occupy movements – not a sound from Minneapolis’ civil rights department, this has to be too Black. Community organizers don’t organize anymore for civil rights. The following story was first aired Saturday, November 24, 2012 on BlogTalkRadio’s ON POINT with Mr. Edwards and Mr. Allen.
Minneapolis, MN (IBNN/MPD-Police Gang Violence/November 26, 2012)…It was just June 22, 2012 when Zackary King, Sr. wrote, “My name is Zachary King Sr. – I was beat by four or more officers Sunday after concert for no reason at all, I was walking to my truck when a officer Stewart noticed I had a bulge in my shirt, he asked me what it was I put my hands up and said I have a conceal & carry and it’s my gun he then grabbed me by neck screamed GUN, GUN, GUN, slammed me against brick wall then four or more officer slammed me on my face including officer Bronson and beat the mess outta me for no reason, I’m legal and they arrested me for obstruction of legal process whatever that is? I did nothing wrong they gave me a Breathalyzer, I blew zeros. I didn’t resist and was beat.”
Sources tell IBNN on November 20, 2012 Demario Booker was followed from the vicinity a club on West Broadway Avenue into Robbinsdale by Minneapolis Police. Officers pulled him over, and information from inside (including residents of Robbinsdale) said Booker complied with the officers and then was the subject of a brutal life-threatening beating that put Demario Booker in a coma for over 24 hours.
IBNN has learned tonight, a data request has been put in for the squad videos from Minneapolis and Robbinsdale police departments. Sources tell IBNN Robbinsdale Police did not take part in the brutal beating of Booker.
Mr. Booker remains in serious condition with three plates in his head, broken ribs, and stitches throughout his face. Friends of Mr. Booker can’t recognize him anymore.
Other items of interest have arisen, why did police officers involved in the beating attempt to prevent family members from seeing Mario? They should have been down in room 108 (city hall) giving a statement.
Let’s see which local mainstream media outlet gets to the story first, which is now 7 days old.
