POLICE BRUTALITY CAUGHT ON VIDEO... AGAIN
On 06 June 2002 at a gasoline station in Inglewood,
California, Black motorist Coby Chavis Jackson, is stopped by Los Angeles County
sheriff's deputies. Inglewood police arrived as backup, and White policeman Jeremy
Morse questions the motorist about his suspended driver's license and expired
license plates. The motorist's mentally retarded son, Donovan Jackson, 16, reacts
in a way that angers the policeman who handcuffs the boy.
At this point, in a motel room across the street,
Mitchell Crooks, 27, notices the commotion and starts videotaping it. The tape
shows Morse slamming Donovan head first into a police car and slugging him in
the face as other policemen converge.
After the news come out, several persons would
complain that Morse had brutalized them, including Nelson Williams who would say
that, on 23 June 2002, Morse and other policemen had beaten him so badly that
he fell into a coma.
On 11 July 2000 Mitchell Crooks is arrested on
pre-existing Placer County warrants for petty theft and driving under the influence
of alcohol with a hit-and-run.
