An indigenous Hawaiian man has just filed a lawsuit against a Honolulu police officer, after the officer brutally beat him when he prayed for a dying seal.
The sun-bathing Hawaiian monk seal was lying on the beach, when Jamie Kalani Rice saw it and determined it was injured or dying.
The incident happened on September, 10th of 2014 according to Courthouse News. That’s when Rice approached the seal and began chanting and rubbing sand between his hands and on his body as part of a ritual Native Hawaiian prayer.
But a police officer was very upset because a sign was posted that said “Do Not Disturb” – requesting that no one harass the seals.
A bystander who did not know about Native Hawaiian culture and tradition called police to tell them an animal was being “harassed” – resulting in the arrival of officer Ming Wang.
Wang approaches Rice and almost immediately snaps his baton to full extension, then grabbing pepper spray and shaking it to threaten Rice.
Even the seal was scared of the officer. It moved away, and Rice tried to follow it to complete the prayer.
Rice picked up a plastic bag with his belongings in it. That’s when Officer Wang sprayed him in the face with pepper spray.
But Rice didn’t seem to feel the spray. That’s when Wang began being him even though he had done nothing to harm the officer, nor to resist in any way. He was simply engaged in an act of prayer.
Wang then continued beating him on the ground and kicking him repeatedly.
The beating resulted in Rice receiving a broken right hand even though “he at no time posted a threat, resisted or struck Wang.”
Rice says he was using his “mana” — the Hawaiian word for life force — to help the sick animal.
Initially prosecutors refused to investigate charges against Officer Wang for the beating. But since the video below was released, the case has been reopened.
Watch the video below and decide for yourself… as this justified?
NOTE: Policeman arrives @ 6:20. Beating occurs 9:30. Please let me know if you can find some action that provoked the cop into beating this guy and breaking his hand.
THEY BOTH LOVE HARD DRIVING AUTHORITY AND “MAKING DEALS”
We all know that Donald Trump was only joking when he
implied that the Second Amendment Folks could take out Hillary if they wanted
to.And when he encouraged Russia to hack
Hillary Clinton’s emails so that her wrinkled Granny titties nefarious Clinton Foundation activities would be exposed for the world to see, we knew he wasn't serious. But Hillary is taking it from all sides of late, including from Wikileaks transparency uber patriot, Julian Assange, who seems to have a massive hard on "thing" for Hillary. Of course, we all know that Julian's long-standing beef with Hillary Clinton stems from the time she refused to have anal sex
with him she threatened to have him arrested, right?
While I’m totally 100% spit on my mother’s grave sure
not yet convinced that Putin is directly behind the e-mail hack and dump of the
Democratic National Committee (whose offices, by the way are just a few blocks
away from my ho…
Is A MUST Read: Take A Gander At This Amazing, But Little Known, 9-11 Story This incredible story is from a flight attendant on Delta Flight
15: On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, we were about 5 hours
out of Frankfurt, flying over the North Atlantic. All of a sudden the curtains parted and I was told to go to the
cockpit, immediately, to see the captain. As soon as I got there I noticed that the crew had that “All
Business” look on their faces. The captain handed me a printed message. It was
from Delta’s main office in Atlanta and simply read, “All airways over the
Continental United States are closed to commercial air traffic. Land ASAP at
the nearest airport. Advise your destination.” No one said a word about what this could mean. We knew it was a
serious situation and we needed to find terra firma quickly. The captain
determined that the nearest airport was 400 miles behind us in Gander,
Newfoundland. He requested approval for a route change from the Canadian
A NARRATIVE THAT ENABLES VIOLENCE AGANST US AS IT DID
PART ONE If you haven’t kept up with the right wing’s
latest attacks on liberals for protesting and resisting Trump then you probably
will disagree with me that I believe that we are heading for new wave of
violence against liberal demonstrators, protesters and resistors as well as against free speech and
the continued diminishment of basic civil and human rights right here in
America. We’ve seen such actions before
during the Civil Rights and Anti-Vietnam War days of the 1960’s.With our backs against the well, as they
surely are today, and the national atmosphere even more repressive with the
Trump Administration, you can depend on it. Why do I say what’s happening to us today
resembles what happened to African Americans during Jim Crow?In no way do I intend to portray the “plight”
of liberals and progressives today as analogous to the post Civil War situation
of African Americans following the passage of the 13th
