Assault With a Deadly Weapon: Your Index Finger

Written by Gary North on April 2, 2012

Crazy? Not in Virginia.

A man in Fredericksburg was arrested for assaulting two police officers. With what? His index finger.

He did it twice, the cops say, so he is accused for two counts.

He has no previous criminal record.

Then the cops threw in intimidation and two counts of obstruction of justice.

Police spokesperson Natatia Bledsoe claimed Loveless made a gun gesture at police officers, but Loveless denies making any kind of gesture at all.

“I don’t see how I was pointing my finger,” Loveless told ABC7. ” If anything I was reaching into my pocket to get a pack of cigarettes. If that’s what they saw, they have a vivid imagination.”

What is a citizen supposed to do? Sit there and shut up.

He will have to pay a lawyer to get his name cleared. This will be very expensive.

The article continues.

Last year we reported on a case in which Dayton police tasered, pepper-sprayed and beat a mentally handicapped teen and then charged him with assault because the officers took the boy’s speech impediment as “a sign of disrespect”.

17-year-old Jesse Kersey was charged with “assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest, and obstructing official business,” after he became confused when police started asking him questions. Kersey was tased and punched as cops threatened to arrest neighbors who tried to tell them the boy was mentally handicapped.

Then there was this:

Last month, a city council had to pay a Nevada man $158,500 dollars after police beat him up for “resisting arrest” when in reality he was having a seizure as a result of a diabetic shock.

When citizens are treated in this way, it’s time to elect new politicians and new sheriffs.

Local law enforcement is not about protecting salaried bureaucrats — cops — from feeling unwanted. It is about enforcing the written laws.

  2. Should have used his middle finger. Cops are use to see that!

  3. Constitution says:

    The number of police brutality attacks on U.S. citizens is absolutely shocking–in the many hundreds of thousands.(Youtube "police brutality" and see what comes up.) Look at the video by ex Assistant Treasury Secretary of the U.S. Paul Roberts. He believes the number of police brutality attacks are on par with the number of criminal assaults in the U.S.

  4. Stop Fascism says:

    No. Two wrongs don't make a right. That is just hateful. Record them when they violate your rights. Create awareness of this plague of KGB thuggery.

  5. There is growing awareness of this pandemic social evil. Politicians who turn a blind eye to this official state gestapo behavior will be voted out of office ASAP.

    In California cops beat a mentally impaired man to death. He can be heard on a recording calling for his dad. The police tried to cover it up but the story got out and finally some charges were filed against a couple of cops. There were actually 6-8 cops on scene as this happened. Not a single one tried to stop the brutality. All of these cops should have been charged and the commanders that tried to cover it up should be charged also. This kind of stuff will not stop until every cop that is involved in the abuse or cover-up is put in jail.

  7. Abraham Obama says:

    I can personally attest to the fact that the police do this to young children also. I was assaulted by a cop when I was 14. This cop pulls over and asked me where I lived. I said why and that's all it took. Police think they are the Gestapo. You don't ask them questions. They will ask the questions and you comply or die.
