U.S. OPEN STAR JAMES BLAKE SLAMMED TO GROUND AND FALSELY ARRESTED / DETAINED BY POLICE

AND THE GUY THEY WERE 
REALLY LOOKING FOR
IS INNOCENT TOO?

Feeling Rebloggy


"Before NYPD Commissioner William Bratton ever spoke to the officer who assaulted James Blake, he publicly declared that the case had nothing at all to do with race...
We now know that Officer James Frascatore has had half a dozen use of force and racial profiling complaints filed against him... According to both Blake and an eyewitness who saw it, he was treated like a violent criminal.
“I was standing there doing nothing — not running, not resisting, in fact smiling,” Mr. Blake said, explaining that he thought the man might have been an old friend. Then, he said, the officer “picked me up and body slammed me and put me on the ground and told me to turn over and shut my mouth, and put the cuffs on me.”

A man who sells newspapers near the entrance to Grand Central Terminal said he watched the police rough up Mr. Blake. “They were real aggressive, like he robbed a bank,” the man, Charlie Sanders, 55, said. “They were shoving him around.”
