Leaving Treadmarkz Across the Universe

Brian Sterner Deputy Turns Herself In

with 6 comments

The officer who was seen on tape earlier this week tipping quadriplegic Brian Sterner out of his wheelchair onto the floor while booking him, turned herself in today. But one question remains for all of you who insist on comparing this case to Rodney King and the ensuing O.J. Simpson (wow, second time I’ve mentioned his name today) fallout. Sterner was not hit, so will they acquit?
Charlotte Marshall-Jones gave herself up, at the same station where the controversial survaillance tape was recorded, the same station where she is currently a suspended employee awaiting further decision. Though Marshall-Jones is now out on bail, it cost her $3,500 and she was slapped with a felony abuse charge.

She was booked without incident, you’ll all be happy to know.

  1. I’d like to know where Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the NAACP are right now. If this had been a black man being dumped out of his wheelchair by a white officer there would be swift, and very public, commentary from these opportunists. But NO this is a white man and it involves a black officer so they remain eerily silent. This just proves the point that these hypocritical racists are only out to further their own agenda, put their images all over the television in support of black-only racial injustices, and are not willing to stand up for any person or group whose skin color does not match theirs. They are a pathetic bunch of losers who deserve to be banished from the public arena. I guarantee not once will you see Jackson or Sharpton on TV saying how this is a racial issue even though had the players skin colors been switched, that is exactly what you’d be hearing from these media hungry vultures.

  2. Thanks for the comments, Mike. I agree that Sharpton and Jackson would probably be involved had it been the other way around, and that is probably their way of showing what their agenda is. From what I have read, a good number of African-Americans consider the media to be controlled by white people, therefore this hypothetical person may not have gone to the media for help. That is where Jackson and Sharpton come in. I still maintain that this, and the Rodney King case, were both cases of a bunch of high and mighty police officers who thought they could push people around because they were in a position of power over the victim. The reasons they felt they had power may have involved Sterner’s disability and King’s race, but in the end its all just a simple power trip.

  3. This isn’t a case of race (although the foolish deputy is black) but a case of brutal police stupidity against a severely disabled man. What was going through this cop’s head to make her think that Sterner wasn’t a quadriplegic and was faking his impairment? I would think she would have gotten a clue when he failed to protect himself as he was being hurled face-first onto the concrete floor! He claimed she never apologized to him even though it was obvious that he wasn’t faking his impairment as she originally thought. This cop should be jailed for this brutal offense and given a mandatory class on neurological impairments so she can at least learn about this poor man’s disability (and others like him.) If she is ever given a 2nd chance at a police career (which is HIGHLY questionable), she should have to prove that she has a better understanding of how to prosecute petty criminals like Sterner, who have severe impairments, and not brutalize them in the process.

  4. Thank you! You said it just right, John. This is about good old fashioned idiocy, not race. And I think I took an attitude earlier on that at least she was being punished, she’d lost her job, and she was paying a big fine, and probably going to trial, so let’s just be happy that she was punished. But no, you are right, this is abuse and she definitely should not be given another chance in the career she had, and jail time would not be out of the question given the crime. But I definitely think she needs some classes on neurological impairment and what it means to have such an impairment. Obviously she didn’t get it.

  5. i agree to some extent,however,race for the most part is the card played when a black person is put upond by whites.as for going to the news with it,how many anti white hate crimes actualy make the news coverage without their race baiters helping their ratings.the media makes selective coverage the main concern.hot coffee,people dispose life altering events with opollagies for media cover ups and misfallisies.

  6. Gene, you make a good point but starting with “Hot coffee” I didn’t know what the hell you were trying to say. Thanks for dropping by though!
