Jesus Huerta: A Child Killed in Durham Police Custody | blacksankofa

Jesus Huerta

By Lamont Lilly – Durham, NC

 

Another Durham resident has now died in a controversial encounter with the Durham Police Department. This time it was teenager and local Riverside High School student, Jesus Huerta. An official response from Durham police chief, Jose Lopez states that 17 year old, Jesus Huerta died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound while placed under arrest in the back seat of a police squad car. After Durham police officer, Samuel Duncan arrested Huerta, reports state that Officer Duncan heard a loud noise from the vehicle’s rear seat and jumped out of his moving patrol cruiser. Duncan’s squad car then slammed into a parked van, leaving Huerta shot and killed in the process. This incident occurred right outside of the Durham Police Department’s headquarters parking lot.

 

Personally, I don’t believe one word of what the Durham Police Department has stated. It seems to me, and many others throughout the city, Durham police officers are simply covering their tracks with a concocted story that makes no physical or logical sense whatsoever. Judging from the city’s buzz of conversations, many residents believe Officer Duncan was directly responsible for Huerta’s death. It is also quite disturbing how the first thing Durham police chose to highlight in this controversy was Huerta’s past juvenile offenses. Trespassing and misdemeanor possession of cannabis was not the cause of Jesus Huerta’s death. Such sheer lack of accountability on behalf of the Durham Police Department is not only disrespectful, it’s outright despicable. Entertaining such ploy is merely a distraction from gathering the truth of what actually happened, here. Maybe someone should pull up the Durham Police Department’s criminal record. Fact is, a 17 year old boy who was allegedly handcuffed, mysteriously died in police custody. Many residents are pointing to police brutality and excessive use of force.

 

Unfortunately, Jesus Huerta became the third Durham resident killed by or in Durham police custody over the last five months. Thirty-three year old, Jose Ocampo was killed July 27th, shot four times in the chest for possessing a knife. Twenty-six year old, Derek Deandre Walker was executed September 17th by a Durham police sniper for publicly threatening to commit suicide.

 

Personally, I’m not worried about the “Bloods and Crips” in Durham. I’m worried about our local thugs in pressed blue uniforms. I’m worried about gang members who carry badges, tasers, steel batons and handguns, “law enforcers” who are paid with public tax money to terrorize people. Jesus Huerta deserves more than blanket apologies from city officials. Phony condolences are of no use, here. Huerta’s family members deserve justice; local Durham residents deserve the truth. A child has been killed, and we need answers. We need answers and Officer Samuel Duncan arrested. Now!

Yurugu Accused Of Drugging 12-Year-Daughter So He Could Savagely Rape Her Friend | Cynical Afrikan

Robert-Chesters

This luciferian peckerwood from Lebanon, father of three is accused of drugging one of his children in order to savagely rape her young friend, according to court documents.

Robert Chesters, 42, was arrested after having a perverted relationship with a 12-year-old girl during a period of a few weeks, according to court documents.

The whitemarish relationship between the girl and Chesters started after she had a sleep-over with his daughter at his home in August.

The arrest warrant reveals texts found on the girl’s phone suggests Chesters was giving his own daughter Benadryl to get her to sleep, so he could be alone with her friend.

“I am so lost without you :-( [blank] is gone next weekend And [blank] will have Benadryl so you can lay with me comfortably and love me,” according to a text from Chesters to the girl on Sept. 8.

The young girl’s friends saw the sexually perverted texts on her phone and told authorities in the middle school, who then called law enforcement.

According to the arrest warrant, a text on Aug. 31 from Chesters stated “when we made love last night your heart really showed through everything.”

The diabolical pedophile was arraigned at New London Superior Court on Wednesday. He pleaded not guilty to first-degree sexual assault charges and risk of injury to a minor.

Court papers reveal the demonic beast apparently knew the relationship wouldn’t last and he even texted her at just 7 a.m. on the day cops were closing in on him.

“As a last resort tell them [blank] will lose her dad for ten years if they say anything. No matter what happens I LOVE YOU.”

When cops went to arrest him on Sept. 11, Chesters was found sitting in his pickup, unresponsive and a suicide note on the floor. He was taken to the area hospital and then to prison until his next court appearance Nov. 21.

Activist group: Franklin woman accused of attacking officers is victim of police brutality | NJ.com

Franklin Township police, pictured here in this file photo, and the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office today announced the arrest of township resident Deborah A. Thomas. The charges against Thomas include two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.

FRANKLIN TWP. — A 50-year-old Franklin Township woman has been accused of attacking two police officers while she was being arrested last week for hindering the apprehension of her son, according to court papers.

But an activist group is claiming Deborah A. Thomas is the victim of police brutality and excessive force, alleging a police officer body-slammed her and repeatedly punched her in the face and body.

Authorities said they visited Thomas’ Park Street home at about 8:20 p.m. on April 23 after being told Thomas’ son had committed a sexual assault.

Thomas told authorities her teenage son wasn’t home and demanded they produce a search warrant before checking her residence, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office said in a news release.

While a search warrant was being obtained, officers saw the son exit a second-floor window and climb onto a roof above the first floor, the prosecutor’s office said. Officers entered the home and brought the teen back inside through the window, according to the prosecutor’s office.

When officers were escorting the son down a staircase, Thomas removed a cell phone from her son’s pocket, according to an affidavit filed today in Superior Court. An officer grabbed her arm and told her to hand it over, according to the affidavit.

While authorities were later executing the search warrant, they told Thomas she was under arrest for hindering apprehension, the affidavit states. But, the prosecutor’s office said, she “refused to comply with officers’ orders.”

As they attempted to handcuff her, Thomas kicked Franklin Police Officer Brian Quigley and punched Jeffrey VanderGoot, a detective with the prosecutor’s office, the affidavit states. Thomas also tried to bite VanderGoot, the affidavit states. She was ultimately subdued and placed under arrest, authorities said.

Thomas was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and hindering apprehension. She was released after posting bail.

But a different version was presented in a statement released Monday by the “Creating Our Own Leaders” organization, or C.O.O.L. The statement identifies Thomas as a “cancer patient” and a member of the non-profit organization, which is based in the Franklin and New Brunswick areas.

The C.O.O.L. statement claims Thomas’ son asked a police officer if his mother could have the cell phone and the officer gestured for her to take it. But as Thomas attempted to do so, another officer tackled her, “dragging her across the floor onto the couch,” the statement reads.

Soon after, police officers rushed into her home and began searching, according to the group’s statement. Thomas repeatedly asked to see a warrant, but no officer could produce one, the statement reads.

When Thomas questioned why an officer was going to her bedroom, “the officer then picked Mrs. Thomas up and body slammed her down, repeatedly punching her in the face and body as Mrs. Thomas screamed for him to stop and repeatedly telling the officer she was a cancer patient and he was hurting her,” according to the C.O.O.L. statement.

According to its website, C.O.O.L. was “created as a response to an outcry for help from local communities that has been devastated by violence and lack of leadership.”

Capt. Jack Bennett, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, declined to comment on the C.O.O.L. statement.
