    The police can find something illegal that any person is doing if they look hard enough. All you need is some butt hurt given to you by some guy with a camera

    Yeah, but this is hardly a trumped up charge, nor an inflation of a minor one. This moron, and I call him that because I've read his speech, is a long term felon. He's not some innocent facing inflated revenge charges.

    And his wife who supposedly slapped someone? That one fails Occam's razor

    Did the police set up the wife to slap somebody or did she actually slap somebody?

It doesn't look good, but maybe there's a perfectly valid explanation. I'd like to hear it.
    I posted repeatedly that the GJ there indicted all but 3 out of over 250,000 cases brought before it in a 5 year period.

    Except that it never ends there.

    One day someone gets pissed someone moved in on "their" territory and throws a punch. The "victim" comes back with a motorcycle chain. Next thing you know there's a gun, sad as it seems, little Suzy who was just playing on her doorstep gets an "accidental" bullet in her head.

    You can't just let "the small stuff" go. All that does is set a precedent for bigger stuff.
    Let's just nuke NY and move on. They can start with a clean slate after.

    Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed New York City Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo applying a fatal chokehold to Eric Garner on July 17, was indicted by a grand jury in Staten Island, New York.



    According to the Staten Island Advance, Orta was indicted on weapons charges after an arrest on Aug. 2 in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island. "They lying on me, they doing me wrong," said Orta after he pleaded not guilty in August, noted the New York Daily News. "I've been harassed by the police since this whole video." Orta's mother told CBS New York that police had been following her son ever since he filmed Garner's death (video below).....snip~

    This event was on video too. He still got off. I think it's going to take more than video.

    The NYPD claimed that Orta and Alba Lekaj entered a Staten Island hotel that is "a known drug-prone location."Moments later, Orta and Lekaj walked out of the hotel and were approached by police.
    "Officers, in plain clothes with their shields displayed, approached the two individuals to question them when they observed [Orta] slip an object into the waistband of [Lekaj]," the NYPD said in court papers.
    "Officers immediately took control of the two and observed, in plain sight, a gun in the waistband of [Lekaj]. The two were placed under arrest and an unloaded .25 caliber Norton handgun was recovered," added the NYPD.
    "When they searched me, they didn't find nothing on me," Orta told the Staten Island Advance in August. "And the same cop that searched me, he told me clearly himself that karma's a bitch, what goes around comes around. I had nothing to do with this. I would be stupid to walk around with a gun after me being in the spotlight."


    Name a hotel in all of greater NYC that isn't a "drug-prone location?"

    I would think the police could make up a better story than that. But to be on the safe side they picked the smallest possible firepower caliber - and unloaded - to see in plain view - seen handed off to someone else - because everyone who illegally carries a gun in NYC carries unloaded guns.

    I bet they are extra nice to him in city jail.

    Throughout history, don't mess with the NYPD. No matter the facts, you lose. Bad.
