We have not covered our Jack Boot of the week in a while. I cover these on this blog to provide reoccurring evidence of official Police brutality. I don’t think that in the past that most people would understand, believe and accept the cry for help from some neighborhoods of the Police State gone wild. It was very important to share what was happening in these communities. Various communities of Americans didn’t realize the threat of the Police State 30 years ago, since the “ghetto cops” where not in their neighborhoods “cracking heads.” We did not react as one nation Under God, united in opposing police brutality and we let the problem grow. One way to get the story out of what was happening in these often poor dysfunctional neighborhoods was a lot of morally repulsive music. However now a days we have things like camera phones and blogs.
In this case we have a report from the Texas Redoubt of San Antonio police officer Jackie Neal, 40 years old. While on duty, in his patrol car in full uniform he pulled a 19-year-old woman over. Told her to step out of the car to “search her” then handcuffed her, put her in the back of his patrolled car and raped her for 18 minutes. I wonder what that woman is going through? I wonder what that family is going through, how are they dealing with this? I also wonder if that family might, in part deal with their deep and rightly felt rage and by listening to very unappropriated music very loudly in a dark closet. Something like ICE-T’s Body Count’s song Cop Killer. Warning, the “…The language is extremely profane…” I can assure you, personally that this women who is not the only person who has been sexually assaulted by police. I can personally assure you of that.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s or 40s, between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-8, with a medium build and gray or white short hair and a dark-colored beard. He was wearing a dark blue long-sleeved uniform with no patches, a gold star-shaped badge, a gold name tag with numbers on it, a police belt with a baton and handcuffs, and sunglasses.
Neal is charged with felony sexual assault, and was released on $20,000 bond over the weekend. Like many police cruisers, Neal’s car was outfitted with on-board cameras to record video inside the vehicle and out of it. Neal’s particular video system, however, was missing the hard drive it needed to operate—something that police say Neal would have been fully aware of at the time of the alleged crime. The GPS in his car, meanwhile, showed it was stopped at the spot in question for about 18 minutes, according to police.
