Pittsburgh man writes police chief after witnessing police brutality; sees immediate coverup

The blood of Devon Davis, covering the snow on the Pittsburgh streets after being brutally beaten by Pittsburgh police

Earlier this week Samm Hodges bore witness not only to an extreme case of police brutality, but the quick coverup and lies that police often spin to cover their tracks. So disturbed by what he saw, he wrote this letter to the Pittsburgh Chief of Police, Cameron McLay - who became a viral hit himself after holding up a sign stating that white silence to racism needs to end.

My name is Samm Hodges. Me and my family have been living here in Pittsburgh for 8 years. Our house is on Federal St, and we really really love this city.

Today, I saw something which horrified me. I work downtown at First and Market. I was leaving with a friend of mine to get coffee when we saw and heard sirens. Suddenly, a young black man who I now know as Devon Davis ran within yards of us, being chased by police officers with guns drawn. He was almost immediately tackled by between 6 and 12 officers. A whole swarm, I didn’t count.

But then, as he lay pinned to the ground, the officers began beating him viciously with batons while yelling to ‘stop resisting.’ He wasn’t resisting, and he kept saying ‘I’m not doing anything.’ They beat him for a long time and when they were done, he was laying in a pool of his own blood with what news reports say is a broken leg. I was only 30 yards away. The had to carry him to the police van.

The official statement from the office of Public Safety is quoted in the Post Gazette and Trib Live says that 'they found him severely injured in a pool of blood'

That’s completely not true. He was tackled and then beaten severely while pinned to the ground by a whole swarm of officers. I saw him running very quickly, his leg was not broken prior to being tackled. Then he was tackled and beaten viciously in the legs. Then he had to be carried away. There was no blood on the ground where he had been running before. He had no limp before.

I know that you won’t stand for this kind of dishonesty and brutality. I’m very shaken up by what i saw, and I lost a lot of respect for the men and women I trust to keep me and my family safe. Please make this right. I am willing to testify or do whatever it takes to see justice is served.

Thank you in advance for handling this situation with justice and thoughtfulness.

Samm Hodges

$20 Million A Year to Lie to America

O’Reilly, 65, is one of the most influential figures in American broadcasting and publishing. He is paid a reported $20m a year to host his show, the O’Reilly Factor, which consistently ranks among the most-watched current affairs programs in US cable TV. He has also authored several bestselling books and memoirs.


A spokeswoman for Fox News declined to respond to detailed questions about O’Reilly’s recollections of the Los Angeles riots. She said in a statement that claims casting doubt on his statements were “nothing more than an orchestrated campaign by far left advocates”

LOL: Bill O'Reilly: I Said I Saw Nuns Being Shot Because I Saw Photos Of It

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly on Wednesday explained that he previously described seeing nuns "get gunned down" in the 1980s in El Salvador because he had seen photographs of such incidents.

O'Reilly was responding to a report by liberal watchdog Media Matters on Wednesday, which accused the Fox host of saying contradictory things about whether he had witnessed nuns being killed in El Salvador while covering a war in the 1980s.

O'Reilly talked to Mediaite later on Wednesday, saying that what he meant in those statements was that he had seen "images" of nuns being killed, not that he had witnessed them himself.

“While in El Salvador, reporters were shown horrendous images of violence that were never broadcast, including depictions of nuns who were murdered," he told Mediaite.

Ok then

"Hero of 9/11".....my ass


Giuliani’s disgust with our first African-American president is deeply rooted in his own security-business interests, which depend on magnifying the potential danger from terrorism and gang violence to the highest extent possible.

Seen in this context, the Giuliani flap is a simple case of a reactionary businessman angry that his market is threatened by a rival. Kind of like the Mafia.
