Sweetwater police!




With all this talk about corruption over at Sweetwater recently, this video of a Sweetwater cop beating a poor guy that in custody has begun making the rounds again, take a look...



From the CBS4 story from a couple of years back...
But other questions are raised by the officer’s sworn arrest affidavit from the April 17, 2010 incident.
(officer) Abreu claimed that once they arrived at the station, he ordered Dominguez “4 to 6” times to place his hands on the counter inside the police department. He said Dominguez refused to comply with his demands. Abreu also swore that “suspect launch forward toward officer” and that as a result the suspect was “taken down to floor.” Abreu added the charge of resisting arrest with violence against Dominguez.
OK! But...
A review of the video, however, shows that Dominguez, 38, could not possibly comply with Abreu’s command to place his hands on the counter because his hands were cuffed behind his back. Also nowhere on the video is Dominguez seen launching himself toward the officer. On the contrary, Dominguez was standing still when Abreu grabbed him and threw him to the ground.
And of course...
Neither the State Attorney nor the Sweetwater Police Department addressed the issue of whether Abreu may have filed a false report under oath or whether he intentionally charged Dominguez with a crime he did not commit.
Did you expect any different?  That brings us to the old joke, How many Sweetwater police officers does it take to throw a defendant down a flight of stairs?  None, the defendant fell on his own, repeatedly.

So what's this got to do with our ongoing stories about South Miami?  Stay tuned, on Monday we'll illustrate the link between Sweetwater, police brutality, cover ups and the South Miami Police Department...

  1. This is a video that is hard to watch. I hope this man that is being abused seeks to address this in court. Like many of our own SMPD officers who delete iPhone recorded videos of Police brutality? YES that's right! Right here in our own sleepy town of pleasant living South Miami and what is the names of those officers??? Any how many SMPD does it take to arrest a disabled youngster? Why NONE he too fell off his bike??

    3. Bingo and even a person is not innocent, thats why this country has funny little saying "innocent until proven in a court of law" not at the hands i
      of a law officer.
