Police Brutality Video – Philadelphia Cop Punches Woman

October 1, 2012 at 8:00 AM ET – A shocking new video reveals an incident of what appears to be blatant police brutality at the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade in Philadelphia on September 30, 2012. In the video, a man almost off-camera to the left can be seen throwing water at a group of Philadelphia police officers. Rather than determine where the water came from, one of the officers turned to a young woman holding a can of Silly String, and punched her in the face. The woman, her face bloodied, was taken away in handcuffs.

10/4/12 Update: The woman in the video has been identified as Aida Guzman. Lt. Jonathan Josey, the officer who punched her, has been suspended for a month and will be fired.

Video – Did Mitt Romney Volunteer Commit Voter Fraud?

September 23, 2012 at 7:02PM – A new video surfaced which reveals a young woman at an El Paso County, Colorado Safeway only registering Republicans to vote. The problem is that the young woman in the video identifies herself as working for the El Paso County Clerk of Court office. In which case, it is illegal to only register members of one political party.

If the woman in the video is not an employee of the County Clerk of Court, she is likewise committing a crime by identifying herself as a county government employee. There’s no official word as to whether or not this is a Mitt Romney presidential campaign volunteer lying about who she works for, or an actual county employee committing blatant fraud. The young woman in the video can be seen wearing a “CTR” (Choose The Right) ring, a motto amongst Mormons belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

New Video of Jonathan Cuevas Shot in Back by Police

September 16, 2012 at 1:15 AM ET – New video has been released that shows a 20-year old being shot and killed by a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy in 2010. Jonathan Cuevas and two friends stopped at a liquor store on Long Beach Boulevard on the night of October 10, 2010 to purchase beer and snacks on their way to a party. When the men jaywalked across the street, a sheriff’s deputy pulled over to cite them for an alleged pedestrian violation.

The video reveals Cuevas running as the deputy exits his patrol car, and can be seen falling to the ground as the deputy began firing shots. A total of seven shots were fired by the deputy, including close-range shots, four of which struck Cuevas who later died at the hospital.

James Segall Gutierrez, an attorney representing Cuevas’ family, stated that there were no reports of Cuevas behaving violently. The Sheriff’s department incident report stated that the deputy involved claims to have witnessed Cuevas pull a gun from his waistband, and point it at him. Cuevas’ family has stated that the video suggests otherwise.

Cuevas is survived by his fiancé Mayra Murrillo, and their four year old son. The Cuevas family is presently suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department, Los Angeles County, and the deputy involved for wrongful death. Cuevas’ mother Alicia Alvarez is also asking for a public apology from both the deputy and the Sheriff’s department.
