SSCC #535: Philadelphia

A judge says a veteran cop is not guilty of punching a woman in the face after last year’s Puerto Rican Day parade in Philadelphia. The incident was caught on video and seen around the world.

Here’s video of the incident:

I cannot believe any judge would truthfully consider that lawful behavior.  As usual the system is merely protecting it’s own.

State Sponsored Criminal #535: Jonathan Josey

Because by all means assault a woman for no real reason when there are other options of force available, doubly so given the number of officers around.

Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

    It seems he lost his job at least, so that’s something.

    • Barron says:

      Though it appears that he’s appealing to get it back since he was found not guilty. Considering the Officer Harless incident, I’m not holding my breath. He’ll be back to work soon enough, probably with back pay to boot.

      • Pyrotek85 says:

        Yeah it says the Police commissioner opposes it but if he’s got backing you’re right he’ll likely be back.

    Also note that, apparently, no one came to her defense. See a cop bust a woman in the face, while she was walking away from said cop, and do nothing. Just turn away. Nothing to see here.

    It’s societal. It’s cultural. We allow this to happen and it will happen more. Our cowardice emboldens evil behavior.
