Arpaio and His Masked Goons SUED for Police Brutality! Arpaio already Lost over $50M in Law Suits for Brutality and Abuse!

PHOENIX (CN) - Sheriff Joe Arpaio's deputies working off-duty security at the Phoenix International Raceway mercilessly beat and Tasered a man and his son "without provocation or cause," the family says.
Michael Wyman, his wife Jan and his son Wade "were enjoying a day with friends at the NASCAR race at Phoenix International Raceway" on Nov. 13, 2010, according to their complaint in Maricopa County Court. The family decided to go to the racetrack's Speed Cantina, where Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies provide security.
Michael Wyman said he was approached by a friend who he had not seen in a long time, and after he greeted the friend with "a high five and bear hugs," Deputy Preston Boyer "without verbal warning or command and without provocation or cause, approached Michael from behind and began to choke Michael using a choke hold."
Michael, "disoriented and unable to see his unidentified attacker, grabbed onto his assailant's arm to try to loosen the choke hold so he could breathe and to free himself," he says. Another sheriff's officer then pushed his wife aside "and Tasered Michael in the back," according to the complaint.
As Michael lay on the floor, the family says, a second sheriff's officer Tasered him again. His wife "begged the MCSO deputies to stop, but a deputy shoved Jan in the chest with both of his hands and ordered her to get back," the complaint states.
When the Wyman's daughter, Melissa, also pleaded with the deputies to stop, a deputy threatened to Taser her too. A deputy threatened to Taser the friend that Michael had high-fived, as well.
Jan Wyman says she went to her husband, who was lying face-down on the ground, "to hold his face off of the ground, his mouth foaming and his body still rigid and convulsing from the electrical shocks," and deputies ordered her away and threatened to Taser her again.
Although her husband "was disabled and immobilized by the Taser shocks, the MCSO deputies then stomped on Michael's arms, kicked him, and handcuffed him," according to the complaint.
The Wymans' friends told the deputies "there was no reason for the deputies' conduct," and one friend, a Phoenix firefighter, told deputies "that they could not continue to Taser Michael after Michael was handcuffed." Ron Wilson identified himself as a Phoenix firefighter, but a deputy told him "he did not 'care who the fuck' Wilson was and then threatened to Taser Wilson, too," the complaint states.
When the son, Wade Wyman, asked the deputies why they were assaulting his father the deputies "began to shove Wade backwards, and continued to shove Wade even after he raised his hand to indicate that he was not resisting nor was he attempting to touch the MCSO deputies." Then the deputies Tasered Wade, and one deputy "kicked and kneed Wade in the ribs as he handcuffed Wade," the lawsuit states.
Michael and Wade were moved behind a gated area, where they sat for an hour before the deputies decided to search them. In response to orders, Michael stood up and spread his legs to be searched, but one deputy "laughed and said, 'Oh, I guess you aren't listening!' and kicked and stomped on Michael's right leg and foot."
Two deputies restrained Michael's arms "while the first deputy continued to kick him; the kicks and stomps struck Michael's Tasered leg and the inside of his foot," the Wymans claim.
Michael Wyman says he was hospitalized after the "unprovoked and unjustified attacks," and underwent multiple surgeries "on his Tasered calf and broken foot."
Criminal charges were filed against Michael, and dismissed; no criminal charges were ever filed against Wade.
The Wymans seek punitive damages for gross negligence, assault and battery, false arrest, intentional infliction of emotional distress and malicious prosecution.
Defendants include Sheriff Joseph Arpaio, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Preston Boyer, William R. Cox, George Inuaki, Michael Martinez, Ryan Neville, Nicholas Perez, and Dominick Reaulo.

Arizona Republic : Gary Nelson : "Olivia Cortes circulator is Pro Russell Pearce - The shill, Olivia is a plant candidate to mislead the anti-Pearce voters - Republican Clowns are deceiving Mesa Arizona Voters - Election Fraud

A vote for Olivia Cortes is a vote for Russell Pearce. That was the theme of at least two conversations Thursday in front of the downtown Mesa library, where paid petition circulators were gathering signatures for Cortes, a nominal candidate in the recall election that could cost Arizona's Senate president his job.

Arizona Republic
Cortes circulator says campaign is pro-Pearce effort
by Gary Nelson
September 8, 2011

Some excerpts :

Friday is the deadline for candidates to file their petitions for the election that is scheduled for Nov. 8, pending a state Supreme Court ruling on its legality next week.

Mesa Republican Jerry Lewis filed his petitions several weeks ago, and his backers planned to visit the Secretary of State's office Friday to file more with a view toward ensuring his place on the ballot.

Cortes, a Republican, and Libertarian lawyer Michael Kielsky, another announced candidate, have until 5 p.m. Friday to submit their petitions to replace Pearce as senator from legislative District 18.

On Thursday, a woman who said she was being paid to circulate Cortes' petitions, stopped a Republic reporter leaving the library.

The reporter mentioned rumors that Cortes had entered the race to split the vote.

"Right," the woman said. "Not away from Pearce. To Pearce."

Reporter: "So she's actually hoping that Pearce will win the recall?"

Circulator: "Right."

When the reporter said that seemed like an unusual approach to the election, the circulator simply said, "Politics."

Dilworth Brinton Jr., a longtime Mesa resident and member of the city's library board, said he'd had conversations with people who heard the same thing from the circulator. The circulator's statements jibe with an allegation made publicly for the first time two weeks ago by Randy Parraz, one of the organizers of the petition drive that precipitated the election.

"We know for a fact that this person Olivia Cortes was a supporter of Russell Pearce beforehand and would not sign the recall petition," Parraz said during an Aug. 24 press conference in Mesa.

When The Mesa Republic asked Cortes to respond to that allegation two weeks ago, she did not deny it. Instead she criticized Parraz, a Scottsdale Democrat, as an outsider who had no business involving himself in Mesa politics.

Her e-mailed statement said in its entirety: "I have never met Mr. Parraz and he has never met me, but I would appreciate it if he would stop trying to muscle or scare me out of this race. I live in LD18 and believe I have something to offer the voters. Mr. Parraz does not live in our district and he should stop interfering with our elections."

Cortes has had no further contact with The Republic.

Told about the conversations at library, Parraz said they confirmed his allegations about Cortes.

"She's busted," Parraz said.

The *overthrown USA government with corrupt fbi/police/cia/cjis try to force inmates to embrace the very symbol of murderous tyranny that threw the men in prison. The flag of this nation is known universally as equivalent to the Swastika. Ask the Jews if they embraced that symbol at Auschwitz.
