Victim of Violent Road Rage Incident Baffled by Police Response After He Called 911

Victim of Violent Road Rage Incident Baffled by Police Response After He Called 911

Donald Akers had a really bad day on Mother’s Day. He and his wife, Janet, were driving to place flowers on his mother-in-law’s grave when they became the victims of an apparent road rage incident.

A driver of a Dodge Ram pickup, who apparently was unhappy with Janet for honking her horn at him when he wandered in to her lane of traffic, followed the Akers in to a parking lot where the driver proceeded to assault Donald with the butt of a gun, breaking teeth and his nose.

The Akers called 911, police arrived… and then proceeded to act like they were best friends with the man who hit Donald with the gun. Why?

Because the man who assaulted Donald was an off-duty U.S. Marshall. Janet Akers said,

“So the police came, and went over directly to them. And were talking to them, laughing, joking around.”

No charges were immediately pressed.

And the government wonders why people don’t trust the police? The good old boys network is still securely in place, and this is one of the biggest reasons why police brutality is a growing concern among the U.S. population. It is because these thugs are relatively untouchable.

What do you think? Is police brutality a growing problem? Comment below.

  • It’s most certainly a problem. Were it my family in that situation, they’d have had a dead marshall on their hands, instead of me getting beaten.

  • He needs to file a formal complaint with the U. S. Marshal for the district he is in. Then, get a good lawyer.

  • Cops and marshalls like that need to have the living shit beat out of them then shove that 6 point suppository shoved up their ass. Some of the ass hole law think they r above the law. When this happens make it worth your while to defend yourself like your life is in imminent danger then finish it. And dont forget their attorney and judges need it to.

  • It is totally a problem not all cops are bad only some police have been getting away with beating and robbing people for way to long they can get away with killing civilians but have life in prison and in some cases the death penalty for people who kill a cop when will it end

  • You are mistaken. I worked with police officers who didn’t tolerate misconduct among their fellow officers. I saw more than one officer fired, because he falsified a report, or was too rough with people. You may see that more in the cities, where officers are in danger more often. And you will see federal law enforcement personnel given all kinds of leeway, and that’s shameful.

  • You know where the cops and the Marshal works the last I heard they can’t stop bullets with their bare hands.

  • The cops who condoned the conduct are just as guilty (accessory after the fact, deriliction of duty) as the thug Marshall that did it.

  • Hello, that’s happening all over – I know by first hand experience. Those are GODless, unethical and immoral people that act and perform their duties that way.

  • Thanks John for injecting some sense into the conversation. I am around cops all the time also and my experience is the exact same. When ever a cop has gone rogue it just kills them because it make them look bad and they know there will be repercussions. No matter all the psych tests 5 % are going to get through that have no business being a cop and with the affirmative action that exists even more than that.

  • I agree with you Snufy provided that is all there is to the story. If he got engaged with the marshal verbally or shoving, etc., then it would be useless.

  • Every Garden has some weeds, but you rip them out and harvest the rest. Several years ago a lot of Police Departments lowered the standards to recruit more minorities. In the 50’s you had to have at a minimum high School Deploma and pass a background test, mental health test, a physical test and only after that you had a probationary period. Look around some Officers are over weight, short and out of shape. Some of the Officers from that group seen the handwriting on the wall and left not because of the danger or the low pay. How do you spell political correctness. Politicians that have no idea what they are talking about medal in the mine field to gain votes.

  • I have to agree, however, I wrestle with this theoretical question a lot lately….if “good cops” do not turn in the “bad cops”, then are there really any “good cops”?
    A person commented up above where he “worked with police officers who didn’t tolerate misconduct among their fellow officers. I saw more than one officer fired, because he falsified a report, or was too rough with people.” I would love to see that, and I do find it hard to believe, not arguing his point, I just have never seen that, especially when the police investigate themselves.
    Serpico comes to mind…..

  • The responding officers need toy be fired , and Mr. Akers needs to get himself a good attorney !

  • Amen. As a licensed gun carrier, when the man approached me with his weapon in hand, I feel I have a right to return in kind, especially if he intentionally followed me. Carrying a badge doesn’t make you bulletproof.

  • It does not make one above the law. I am more Leary of law enforcement than thugs.

  • Welcome to the United (Police) States. Even the “righteous” cops are out of control. People have had enough. Law enforcement, at every level, is arrest happy. They handcuff people so they feel safe. That is bull$h!t!!!! People have had it. I am sick of watching “COPS” where they treat law enforcement like a sport. I am a law abiding citizen but will NEVER allow myself to be handcuffed as a matter of routine. I will fight back and die . . . it I must. Law enforcement needs their wings clipped. PERIOD!

  • If I was assaulted in that manner it would most likely kill me , I am 80 years old. I would do what ever I could to stop him from killing me. After being the victim of an armed robbery and shot 3 times I am always armed as is my wife. It would have been messy.

  • And notice, this is a white man, hmmmm. And ,yes, with the current status of the common criminal, they have to act with a certain degree of “brutality” What people don’t seem to understand, the police are assigned to “Serve and Protect” with their hands tied behind their backs. Which has nothing to do with this incident, Marshall or not, he broke the law and should be held accountable for his actions.

  • I think since they are a government agency. The ones that have been aggressive should be shipped over seas as a grunt for the, military with no chance of advancencement and a 6 year tour with no leave and sent on the most dangerous missions. I think people shooting at them and possible capture and tortured is a great idea

  • There is much angst and consternation against prosecutors and grand juries who refuse to bring charges against police officers, even when incontrovertible evidence is presented. Even with incontrovertible audio and video evidence, prosecutors are loath to prosecute rogue law enforcement personnel.
    Let’s examine the reasons why it is so difficult to prosecute thug cops:
    Most prosecutors are former police officers or have extensive dealings with police departments and have ongoing relationships with police departments in their respective jurisdictions. They are friendly with the judges in their jurisdictions, as well. This, along with “absolute immunity” makes it easy for them to “cover up” police abuses and behavior. Prosecutors cannot be sued for malfeasance…it takes a judge (who prosecutors are friendly with) to bring charges on a rogue prosecutor (which almost never happens).
    In addition, prosecutors guide the actions of grand juries. Prosecutors are not required to introduce any evidence to grand juries, (can and do) easily “whitewash” the actions of rogue cops. On the other hand, prosecutors can (and often do) go after honest citizens who seek justice outside official channels…prosecutors have ultimate power and are not afraid to use it…their immunity sees to that.
    Another aspect to a grand jury’s inability to prosecute bad cops is the fear of retribution…cops drive around all day, have nothing but time, have access to various databases, and can easily get the names and addresses of grand jurors…this, in itself can be a powerful deterrent against grand jurors who “want to do the right thing” and prosecute bad cops. There are many cases of cops parking in front of grand jurors’ residences, following them around, and threaten to issue citations to them, in order to “convince” them to “make the right decision”…the “thin blue line” at its worst…
    The whole system has to change.
    Eliminate absolute and qualified immunity for all public officials. The fear of personal lawsuits would be a powerful deterrent against abuses of the public.
    Any funds disbursed to civilians as a result of official misconduct must be taken from the police pension funds–NOT from the taxpayers.
    Grand juries must be superior to the prosecutor; ALL evidence must be presented to grand jurors. Failure to do so must be considered a felony and subject prosecutors to prosecution themselves.
    No police agency can be allowed to investigate itself. Internal affairs departments must be restricted to minor in-house investigations of behavior between cops. All investigations must be handled by outside agencies, preferably at the state level.
    Civilian police review boards must be free of police influence. Members of civilian review boards must have NO ties to police departments. Relatives of police would be prohibited from serving…Recently, the “supreme court” threw police another “bone”. The court ruled that police are not responsible for their actions if they are “ignorant of the law”…now, let’s get this straight–honest citizens cannot use “ignorance of the law” as an excuse, but cops can??

  • There have been too many instances of police errors, mistakes, and misconduct that have not been properly addressed. From harassing honest citizens over minor disagreements, questionable shootings of honest citizens, to SWAT teams raiding “the wrong house”, smashing everything in sight, with no apologies to the occupants for their “mistakes”, there is something seriously amiss with law enforcement in this country.

    Militarization, along with the “us vs. them” attitude, seeing the general public as the “enemy”, treating the public with suspicion, many of those that comprise the “thin blue line” do much to alienate themselves from their “bosses”, the law-abiding public.

    Police have forgotten that a little “Andy Taylor” can go a long way in soothing fears that the public has of law enforcement…

    It seems that in today’s supercharged climate of “officer safety”, innocent civilian lives have been extinguished, with tragic results.

    Part of the “problem” has to do with the elevation of “officer safety”, trumping “citizen safety”. It seems that honest citizens have been relegated to second-class “status”, being expendable whenever a “law enforcement” officer’s (perceived) “safety” is threatened.

    The hypocrisy is so blatant, that even with incontrovertible video and audio evidence, police-friendly prosecutors, along with “rubber stamp” grand juries STILL absolve rogue cops of wrongdoing.

    The public is not stupid, seeing through the double-standard that presently exists. This, in no certain terms, absolves anyone of responsibility for perpetrating unnecessary violence against “law enforcement” or the general public…

    The sad part of this whole situation is that when the SHTF, the 99% of good cops will suffer, as those with “axes to grind” will see only the uniform and will be unable (or even unwilling) to differentiate between the “good” and the few “bad”…collateral damage at its worst.

  • Here are “police” practices that deserve to be exposed:

    #1. During a traffic stop, the police officer will touch the back of your car. The reason for this “touch” is that, quite often, the police officer will have a small quantity of narcotics (marijuana or cocaine) on him (in his hand) that he will rub on the car in order to help “justify a search”. When the dog is brought in, it will react to “cues” from its handler as well as the drug residue on the vehicle and help “justify a search”. This tactic is mostly used against young people. Drugs can also be “planted” on a “suspect”.
    The “touch” used to be a way for police officers to “prove” that they had an interaction with a citizen, but no more . . .

    #2. Most (if not all) cops possess a “throwdown” weapon. This “helper” is obtained from a criminal who is then “let go” without his weapon and is always used to justify a questionable police situation and to “sanitize” a “crime scene to absolve police on the scene of criminal police behavior.

    #3. If you are in the back of a police car, LIE DOWN on the seat. Police use the concept of “screening” to abuse their unwilling “passenger”. This involves, driving at high rates of speed, violent turns and other antics to get the passenger to “hit the screen” separating the front from the back with his face. Hence the act of “screening”.

    #4. If you are being handcuffed, quite often the police officer will wrench you arm behind you, forcing you to “turn around”. The officer will then add a charge of “assault” to whatever other charges they concoct against you (just for being forced to turn around). They “pile on” charges, hoping you will plead guilty to at least one.

    Remember–NEVER CONSENT TO SEARCH . . . You must be polite, but firm in your refusal. You can state that “you NEVER consent to searches” as well as using these “magic” words–“am I free to go?” The police officer MUST answer your question . . . If you are being detained and an illegal search takes place, you have legal recourse.

    Remember–police are not your friends . . .

    That being said, not all “law enforcement” is criminal, but the “thin blue line” that they so jealously guard (and “look the other way” when rogue cops abuse their authority) does much to taint ALL “law enforcement” with having ulterior motives.

  • I have seen it and been the supervisor who has, multiple times, taken action against a bad officer. By not doing anything, you give the person who has abused his or her badge permission to do it again and again. An officer who turns in another for breaking the law needs to understand that HE isn’t putting the bad officer that position: the bad one put him or herself there and is trying to shift responsibility onto fellow officers.
    FYI, I am a female.

  • Fine.You’re a female. Makes no difference to me what sex you are, thanks for the clarification though. I still disagree with the ramifications of an agency investigating themselves…that is not advantageous to anyone except the agency. You are right, if nothing is done, it will be taken as a go -ahead to continue. And many times it does. A problem is, if the officer turning another in *needs* to understand what you said above….then I would say there is a problem with said officer, also, wouldn’t you think? He should already know this, I mean, we are not dealing with children……

  • Problem is, the Supreme Court has decreed that no police officer is there to “serve and protect”. They are only there to enforce the law. Google it. It is true.

  • yes it does… providing he identified himself and the victim proceeded an assault … if that was the case an arrest should have been made…

  • Sounds like your four points came from an “anarchist’s” text book.
    I love the last paragraph disclaimer.
    Could it be? ….a professional troll?

  • First off, I would like to Thank the Officers out there who are there to “Protect and Serve” for We the People, all of them are not bad. But there are too many out there that go to work with a “God Complex” and think that they are entittled to do whatever they damn well please to anybody or anything. Luckly I’ve only been verbally abused a few times over the years or just detained for several hours while the auto I was riding in with several friends was basically torn apart searching for drugs. After we stopped at a full service gas station and the punk working there didn’t like the friend who was driving and after pumping our gas, took the money inside to get his change and told the cop who was there talking with the owner and to him that we were smoking a joint in the car, which we were not. But the cop came out and yanked us out of the car and proceeded to search us and verbally abuse us while waiting on more officers to show up. After 3 and a half hours of tearing the interior of the car apart and frisking us down five times, never finding anything, they finally ended up taking the owner of the car in for an unpaid speeding ticket and letting us go. They allowed me and my friend to take his car back to his wife because she was at home waiting on the baby food we went out to get for her and their baby. I also know several friends who have been beaten by officers for no reason other than they could without any worries about being brought up on charges and I have know a couple of women who have been sexally abused by officers during traffic stops late at night, basically raped of which only one of them was ever caught for raping women he stopped for “traffic violations”.

  • …no, not a “professional troll” at all. These are normal police practices…
    Regards,

  • GODless people, have far less morals and ethics than their opposition – and they’ll spare no limits to prove their point. Without any “omnipotent being with a structured belief system” to follow, man does as man always has done, his “me-me-MINE” mentality surfaces uncontrolled. If most could/would think twice, this country wouldn’t be in the state it is!

  • Most police officers are good citizens. There are bad apples in all groups, doctors, preachers , social workers. I have seen good and bad in each group. That is life get over it.

  • Police brutality in and of itself is not the problem. The problem is the apparent disregard some officials have for their responsibility to the public. I’m a first responder and personally know a lot of good cops but unfortunately like any other job you have the good and the bad. This situation is a poor example of proper behavior from law enforcement. There are more examples. Where the officers are justified in their use of force that the media and public want to call police brutality. Law enforcement officials often have to make snap decisions about what is the quickest and easiest way to stop an assailant while still protecting the public. Think how you would handle the same situation before judging how they handle a situation. Would you even put your life in jeopardy to protect someone else especially someone you may not even know.

  • That’s true, but the marshal did initiate the incident over horn tooting. The internet is the biggest venue ever for liars a fabricators. Who knows what really happened.

  • This article tells one side of a story. There is another side. Somewhere in the in-between lies the truth.

  • You are the type of citizen that we in law inforcement protect only because we took a oath and have a sense of duty. Most of the officers I know do not do it for the money. I can make far more of that doing something else. I only do it because I felt a calling to serve.

  • You really do talk trash. Touching the car is to put fingerprints on it so that if something happens to the cop, there is evidece that he had an interaction with the driver of that vehicle. I took a citizen’s class for 12 weeks with a local law enordement organization not long ago. The sheriff and other senior ranking officers told us in various sessions that they train every deputy to touch at least once at a traffic stop, for exactly that reason.

    They would not publicize the fact they are touching if they were trying to hide the reason why. As part of the class we also had a ridealong on offer with a deputy – for part of, or an entire shift, I opted for an entire 12 hour (plus handover overlap) shift. We had multiple traffic stops, and on every stop the deputy I was with touched the vehicle every time he passed the back of it to talk to the driver. He had no drugs on his hands, I was with him the entire day. He made no arrests or even please step out of the vehicle calls. He issued no tickets, only warnings, confirming what we had been told in the classes – their primary role is law enforcement, not filling quotas to issue tickets and generate revenue. Every person in the class of 20 confirmed talking later that the deputy they rode with was the same – touching, and warning, very few tickets. And for the record – we have no police – deputies perform all law eforcement tasks in the county, with state police helping some but only with traffic on state roads or other issues only as needed.

    On a number of occasions during that shift the deputy I was with told me he recognied a driver, or a car / license plate. He told me in each case he knew the driver and knew their current state – driving with a suspended license, driving with outstanding issues on non payment of taxes etc. He ran their plates as we drove, I heard all the detail that came back via the in-car computer. And each time he said I wish I had a reason to pull him over, but even though I know of “violation x”, I have no probable cause to stop him right now unless he breaks a law in front of me. On one occasion he even said he could pull a known offender over because of something hanging from the rear view mirror that though minor was a violation of the law – but then he said no, even that is not a good enough reason to pull him over, he’ll mess up another day and we’ll stop him then.

    They teach the same curriculum to every class, twice a year – and the class is open to ever person who lives, or works in the county, free. I know the curriculum is consistent because I know others who have been through the same class as me as different times.

  • I do not consider people who believe in Jesus to be in any way my opposition. I also don’t tell people who believe other wise from me that they are evil or stupid. My godless unstructured belief system tells me to try and leave this planet a better place than I found it. Your beliefs are yours and it is fine with me. What does your bible say about passing judgment? My bible says I should respect your beliefs unless you are a Muslim who follows the Koran.

  • They Touch the car so that their fingerprints on the back of it so when the person step out and shoot at them it’s is evidence that that vehicle was at the scene, and to check to make sure the trunk is closed so they don’t get ambushed from behind if there was a person hiding in side of it.

  • Rears go conservatives suspected that ACORN were up to illegal activities on tax-payers money. It simply took one, undercover video to bring ACORN down.
    Please, for all of the public’s safety produce one, training manual used in any police academy,( one document used for training police anywhere; better yet one training, in-service video of DEA,K-9, or general law enforcement), showing that your thesis is indeed “normal police practices”. Would not this prove your point, and bring an end to their Misconduct? Of course if you tell us that, “you know ” because you are a law enforcement officer. Please include your jurisdiction, name, nd badge number so we can initiate prosecution…Regards

  • I will repeat I fear the government more than I do the criminal. This is not how it should be, but it is.

  • These are the exception, not the rule. We rarely hear about all of the good the police do every day. Every profession has idiots, bullys, jerks. Make a formal report with the U.S. Marshals and the U.S. Attorneys office locally. They will do their job and he will pay, first with his job loss.

  • One huge problem in all of this is that the rogue cops are protected by various things, like the police union and other cops that will form a ‘blue wall’ around the bad ones. If the good cops would speak up against the bad ones there would be less of the prevailing perception regarding rogue LEO’s.

  • Well, maybe… but until there is evidence otherwise, I’ll take what I read at face value. I don’t assume anything that may be nothing more than idle speculation.

  • First, NEVER PULL OVER, you are now vulnerable and you are at a disadvantage.
    Second, Never get out of your car, in many states the Castle doctrine applies to your car.
    Feds must use local LEOs to pull you over unless there is a Federal crime involved.

  • Some of what anarchist stated makes perfect sense, stand on your rights to remain silent, do not voluntarily consent to searches and remain polite and respectful. LEO’s don’t have any more rights than you do, but they do have authority that carries great weight.

  • If you want to act like an idiot go ahead and expect the worse possible consequences.

  • About 15 years ago I was falsely arrested and paid a lawyer $1500. The charges were dropped and I was “out” $1500. A year or two later, I was falsely arrested a second time. I did not get a lawyer; I wrote a 15 page letter stating what happened, why it happened and detailed all the lies in the police report. I distributed the letter and was invited to meet with the black chief of police in his office with the captain over the police force. During the meeting, I stated this twice, one time after the first time: “Most cops are good people. I am a target for the few that are inclined to harass people.” That meeting got the charges dropped (nol pros?) and more or less stopped the harassment for about ten years. More recently, I was falsely arrested for alleged traffic violations at least 3 times and was railroaded into convictions each time because I did not qualify for a free lawyer and could not afford a paid lawyer. Currently, I have a $4## fine against me that has a police report with it that has two easily disprovable bald faced lies in it. One lie can be proved a lie with photos that the officer took. The other lie was simply a restatement of a lie said by police to have been told to them in a complainant’s phone call to them. At the pretrial hearing, the prosecutor told me they would drop the fine if I would agree to community service. I told him to take the two lies out of the police report and I would talk to them again. He indicated that their next talk to me would be about court. My next step may be to write and distribute another detailed letter and/or visit a lawyer. There is no excuse for easily disprovable lies or fabricated lies to be in police reports….there needs to be a formal procedure where the challenges to the truthfulness of a police report can be attempted to be resolved before court appearances occur. Maybe this could be done by a volunteer citizen oversight committee or something similar. Another common problem occurs when a defendant does not qualify for a free lawyer but does not have money for a paid lawyer without selling something or going in debt. If you don’t have a lawyer, it is a simple matter for the prosecutor, law enforcement and judge to railroad the defendant into a guilty conviction. Unless there is a risk of huge fines and/or extended jail time, most people probably decide to pay the fine or do the jail time in lieu of paying a lawyer thousands of dollars in what may be a gamble. This routine is especially W-R-O-N-G when a defendant has been falsely or criminally arrested.

  • If you shoot a LEO expect to be treated as a criminal. Castle doctrine aside, when the blue and red lights start flashing in your review mirrors, you better pull over or expect to be treated as a criminal.

  • To Clay

    Your following words make sense: “stand on your rights to remain silent, do not voluntarily consent to searches and remain polite and respectful. LEO’s don’t have any more rights than you do, but they do have authority that carries great weight.” I agree.

    Anarchist’s thesis is unproven as far as I know. See my reply to him requesting proof. Also if we had that proof we could use it effectively to aid in preventing the overreach and abuse of power.

  • It’s apparent that you did not comprehend parts of my post. I wrote that the “touch” used to be a way to prove that the officer had an interaction with a motorist, but has morphed into a way to harass drivers and justify a “stop” with our present “war on drugs”. The “touch” makes it easy to “taint” a vehicle wit a small amount of marijuana or cocaine.
    Looks like I hit a nerve…GOOD!
    Good cops have nothing to fear from honest citizens. It is the few “bad apples” that taint the whole barrel.
    Regards,

  • …you won’t find these “practices” in a training manual. They are imparted to prospective police officer discreetly by corrupt veteran officers as they are patently illegal (and criminal) in themselves.

  • …yeah, to “serve and protect” THEMSELVES…the “supreme court” has ruled that police have NO DUTY to protect individual citizens, only “society at large”…

  • You really are a paranoid individual or you are subconsciously guilty of something. I’m afraid you are so far off on most of the issues you bring up. I’ve been placed in handcuffs a few times and not once did they wrench my arm to the point I would be forced to turn around. The idea of separation between the front and rear is to protect the officers from the suspects in the back and most times the officer will ask if the suspect would like a seat belt most refuse because they are being jackasses. You need to check your facts before making yourself look stupid next time Anarchyst. Your screen name is just proof of how foolish you really are. Anarchy is not a state that you would really like to live in. Think about the anarchy that was seen during Hurricane Katrina. The absence of laws and authority are not pleasant law are meant to protect the publics rights and freedoms from those that are out to cause problems.

  • Proof or video, Please.
    I think that you have taken the obvious problem of some “bad actors” within the LEO community and combined it with another real problem, which is the militarization of law enforcement. If you addressed those issues I’d be with you.
    But the unproven diatribe that reads like a conspiracy spy novel, without proof simply weakens your position. But apparently does fit your narrative.
    Good luck with the propaganda.

  • That is so right. You either have the money to toss away, or you don’t, and go to jail. It is all about the money. And yes, police do lie. Yes, they will harass you. It has been done, and it will continue, unfortunately.

  • Problem is, the Supreme Court has decreed that no police officer is there to “protect and serve”. They are only there to enforce the law. Google it. It is true.

  • No . . . I’m not a spineless pussy like you. I served this great nation in Special Forces so weaklings like you don’t have to live without civil rights and you would give it up in a second. A real man stands for what is right . . . no matter the risk. Weak people like you will allow a free country to turn dictatorship every time. Sheep like you have no business calling yourself patriots. Trust me, a little shit like you would never call someone like me an “idiot” to my face. You need someone to defend you because you cannot. So glad I’m not you.

  • I comprehended your puerile ranting. You’re still wrong, it is not used to harass drivers and taint a vehicle. If any deputiy I obsered had done anything to taint their hands, I would have seen it. I spent the entire day watching cosely, and talking.

    No, you didn’t hit a nerve, I have no connection to any cops other than my taxes pay their salaries and I live and work in areas they patrol. I just counter trash with facts. There may be a few cops who do that, as you said there are bad cops, your single fact.

  • Only problem is they were not signaled to pull over by lights, they did it on their own which was stupid and could be taken as a sign of aggression!

  • …your name-calling proves my point. You must be one of the “bad apple” cops…

  • Al I have to agree this is an inexcusable act on the part of the marshal. With him being a marshal he is expected to uphold a higher standard. It’s really a shame that this individual is so poorly representing the profession of law enforcement.

  • A society that does not embrace life, embraces death. What kind of citizen does a society generate when it embraces death, violence and perversion? Police officers et al principalities of power come from the general population and with it they bring the culture of death.

  • It seems that if you are a law enforcement officer, you can be violent and nasty and get away with it. We need change in our government.

  • Why are we seeing this anti cop bs here? That’s just what Obumpkin wants. More Americans criticising the police forces so he can take over, and then he has complete control. Stop falling for these stupid lies and propaganda. The only one threatening your liberties are the democrats, and brainwashed writers like the one that wrote this lame ass story. Just saying…

  • And a dentist… And perhaps a muzzle and a straight jacket. Anyone stupid enough to attack a US Marshal deserves a little beatdown. Now go back to voting democrat you little anti cop crybabies.

  • I’m not in law enforcement and there was no name calling just my impression of your character. I never directly called you any names but I can if you’d like me to I can but I don’t see a point in calling you names. Just trying to educate your ignorance on the subject at hand. You are the one attacking individuals just on their profession and stereotyping all law enforcement as being corrupt. I have found from my experience that those that see corruption everywhere they look are usually seeing a reflection of their own character flaws.

  • That US Marshall needs to be made an example of for the rotten apples in our police force, because there are more good cops than bad that are ready and willing to put their lives on the line even for those of you that speak out against all law enforcement!

  • Dear mike21222, would you happen to be one of those brutalizing assholes? If it was me the cop would be in bad shape himself, if even alive. Under NO circumstances should this have happened. Police are trained to hold restraint with citizens, not commit attempted murder over a quarrel or even a fight. Dude should own that prick’s life, and to a lesser degree the ones who were derelict in their duty to make an immediate arrest. This is one main reasons that so many of us are training and equipping ourselves, out of control government officials, particularly federal. Too stupid to see this as part and parcel of the tyranny we were afraid of?

  • Don’t get so righteous. You’re not the only one who served in special forces, a lot of other honorable men have before and since you and are a better men than you.
    I served this nation for over 31 total years in the military and as a civilian. If you want to stand up for your rights and die in the process over something like this road rage incident, that’s your prerogative. But there are more important issues to sacrifice your life for. Now grow the hell up!
    BTW, I don’t need self-righteous jack wagons like you to defend me… I’m capable of defending myself.

  • Don’t train? Some of us do, martial arts and firearms, and have friends in local and county law enforcement, who are also leery of the dirty ones. You shouldn’t take this from Anyone, hiding behind a badge or a criminal on the street… same-same to me.

  • In this incident, the Fed LEO apparently followed the couple to the parking lot that was their destination and started to beat down the victim with the butt of his gun as a result of his road rage.
    But I was actually making a general reference that when you see the flashing lights in the mirror, the law across the country requires that you pull over as far to the right as possible, if you’re not the one being pulled over you’ll get passed by pretty fast, if are being pulled over for a violation, the flashing red and blues will still be there when you’re stopped.

  • I think your missing my point. This story is all BS. This is a he said she said story and you have heard nothing from the other side, but just like the rest of the anti cop crowd your gobbling it up like a cold glass of water on a hot day. Don’t be fooled, these numbnuts are being paid and prodded to produce these false anti cop stories and it’s all from the progressive gun grabbing left. Don’t be used as a tool, fool.

  • Pulling a gun on a US Marshal. Brilliant! Perhaps it would be a good idea to get a little truth in the story first. This story is such BS it’s not funny. Your all being played as fools.

  • Hello again, I believe I said “if they’d think twice, this country ……”! As far as “smart vs not so…”, those that “are”, don’t do the “not so” – in doing the “assume/ jump to conclusion” thing! Exactly why I stated the truth and nothing about anyone being against…! My comments were directed at the “topic”. You on the other hand, by your own design, want to make this “personal” (for whatever sorted “un- ” structured/ethical motive you’ve surmised). So regardless of your reply, I’ll not follow you down this “ever-so-rosy” path you’re laying! “FIN”!

  • I already posted that, as soon as someone approaches you with a weapon you have the right to open up, there is no waiting to see what his intentions are. I’d like to know the race of the marshal, it don’t say.

  • You may be right, but I’m a semi-retired driver, having someone come into your lane and give a toot of the horn is not reason for someone to follow you and start an altercation.

  • This why we all need to have situational awareness and if someone follows keep on driving until you have lots of witnesses. As soon as you leave the vehicle you are just as guilty or will have a hard time proving it.

  • Clay, you are the self righteous one. You provided an unsolicited response to my comment, judged me and called me an idiot without knowing me or the circumstances in my life. You must be a bleeding heart liberal.

  • All you will be doing is waisting your time and money , they all protect one an other !

  • Absolutely correct, there’s no opposing account, corroboration, or even a complete story. So what you’re saying we have, in essence, a hypothetical… So what? It doesn’t negate the fact that you’re here talking about this fictional account (reminiscent of a certain girl’s story in Rolling Stone) and character as if he’s automatically somehow nuts and brought it upon himself, while this “federal agent” is entitled to give him a beating. So, let’s say it’s a movie… wouldn’t be the first time I argued about a provocative script, even a poorly written one. It doesn’t change the fact that shit happens, and it has happened, and if you’re smart you’ll be prepared and won’t let it happen to you… all while the current administration is trying to take more control over local authorities, which is what I believe the anti-cop propaganda and sentiment is really being generated for. You’ve seen it repeatedly in recent months, but it doesn’t change either, that corruption has become rampant in the federal government, which includes federal police also (Don’t think they are gods, some of us train using some very similar techniques). So the likelihood increases by design. Time will tell how real it gets, and how your state and local authorities might react to a declaration of marshal law, because that is the logical conclusion to this course. Distrust of “Authorities” is usually not a bad thing!

  • Godless people have far less morals and ethics than their opposition. You did say this. I said god has nothing to do with anything. Your reply seemed to indicate that godless people are behind the evil of this world. How does god fit in with this pistol whipping incident? When you write down words it really helps to arrange them so that they convey some kind of understandable meaning. I don’t believe I would want you following me down any path , Rosy or not.

  • The term, “untouchablea’ is not correct, It may indicate that the local authorities won;t do anything, however the criminal action can still be dealt with, If the general avenue of protection has been closed, then find where this criminal resides, and give him some 2nd Ammendment education, If this isn’t enough to inform his buddies, then more of them will be receiving public justice in short order,

  • Again your belieVing the narrative in this story. And greatly it doesn’t make sense for some one who has attained the position of a US Marshal to simply and indiscriminately decide he’s going to ruin someone’s day by bashing their teeth in. Think about it. There’s too much propaganda floating around our there, and this is one of the worst stories as far add bias I have seen. So go ahead and ramp up the anti cop rhetoric as much as you like but I’m simply not drinking your tainted Kool Aid.

  • No. Definitely not a professional troll. 🙂 Probably the most unprofessional troll we have ever seen.

    With an alias like anarchyst, I think the agenda is clear. Interesting how the self proclaimed anarchists squeal like pigs about taxes and government intervention, yet they would squeal even louder if they came under attack and needed police help, or for accident or fire – EMS / firefighter help, or if the roads they want to drive on but not pay taxes for were not available.

  • They certainly need to be investigated. But I am truly starting to think at least half the reporting on the net is fabricated.

  • How about stomping to death someones pet cat or shooting their dog. I don’t even want to contemplated some police officer killing my dogs. I have no idea how I would react, I don’t think I could remain passive.

  • He is partially right. If you ever have a run in with this bad group you will never quite get over it. I can’t prove it but trust me I have seen it happen and I have experienced it. It does not dim my view of the police in general but it does make me very cautious.

  • The Castle doctrine is not carte blanche permission to shoot people. Unfortunately, when the flashing lights are up your tail pipe, not pulling over is a big mistake. Getting out of the car is also. But more than once the cop has made it clear to me to not get out of the car. Bad cops, and worse, poorly trained cops, are not doing the profession any good.

  • This guy is not a cop and you are right, never get out of your car, but the big error here was if someone is following you DO NOT STOP unless it is in a well lit area with lots of witnesses and cameras. This guy was out of control, but they made the errors and he knew it! He basically set them up.

  • First off, the story is suspicious…..no location, not even the state of which this was alleged to have happened. Were there no witnesses? Other than the supposed victim & his spouse? Where is the Media on this? especially since it seems that they are identifying those in law enforcement that are disregarding the rights of the American citizen.

    Yes, I am a retired LEO…but never sided on the part of a discriminating or LEO in the wrong….whenever or where-ever.

  • The us Marshall should of been arrested and then fired after he was found guilty in the world as it should be, but in the real world this shit happens and it happen to me by a FBI agent but I didn’t get a betting like that guy maybe because of my size. That guy needs to keep going after that asshole and get him fired.

  • no mater what took place the agent is not the judge, jury and the executioner. wake up america.

  • You know its really hard to be a cop. Didn’t use to be though. Back in the 50s and early 60s people were different then. You didn’t have to worry about who’s coming over the border or which gangs going to do the next drive by shooting. Now its the cartels muslim’s you just can’t expect 100% right all the time 24 7 . Some ones going to make a grave mistake like this at one time or another. I’m not saying what the cop did was right or the guy it happened to. I just say lets look at both sides without always being biased.

  • Mr. Big Shot Marshal thinks he is sooo important but is simply some inner city, TV watching, crak punk, that is most likely obese and uneducated.
    The Marshal’s tranny “woman” that got out of the truck screeching had to be on dope. Prayfully, the primate Marshal & cops will soon dye of AIDS or something :.

  • Cops & all Federal agents of any kind (FBI, CIA, etc.) need to be required to leave their taxpayer gunns at the office or station, when off duty, and not allowed to have or own any personal gunns or other weapons.
    The cops & Federal agents with criminal records need to have a permanent body cam attached to monitor their activities.

  • Who the Hell said Akers attaches the Marshall. I am pro police but there was no excuse for that behavior?

  • I had a off duty officer (high on cocain) try and bust me over the head with her flashlight and would have if my husband had not caught her arm as it was coming down. This was a result of the car that she was in cutting through while my husband was already backing out of a parking space and the girl driving clipped her bumper on my husband. there was no damage to either but the girl whose fault it was kept going off about it and I happened to laugh about how rediculous she was acting and that is when the police girl tried to hit me over the head. What I see mostly in the nice area I live in is cops that want to act tough and push the weight of their job around.

  • You didn’t think that they were on their best behavior because you were in the car with them?

  • Just HOW are we to get ‘another side’ of this? The Cops will NEVER have anything to say while it is on everyone’s mind. They clam up and deny any wrongdoing while it is “under investigation” by THEMSELVES!

    I have more than a little history with the TEXAS Legal System and I can verify that there are NO lawful officers of ANY kind in Texas. The Texas Constitution in Article 16 Section 1 has the requisite Oath of Office in quotation marks to indicate that there is NO alternative wording allowed. This oath has not been taken by anyone that I have found in the last 21 years. It is actually much worse than that would indicate. I have checked the records of several Texas Cities and 7 of them did not even have a Police Department! Arlington, Garland, Mesquite, Richardson, Huntsville, Clear Lake Shores, and Fort Worth.

    In 1994, Garland spent $40,000,000 for 500 ‘officers’ without having a Police Department created under the City Charter. How did this happen? Well, the PTB decided to make a lot more money from traffic fines so they chose to call Garland a “Home Rule Municipality”. This means that they will NOT send 25% of their traffic fine revenue to the State, another 25% to the County, and instead they will keep 100% for the CITY!

    This has happened all across TEXAS as there is NO validation of ANY actions taken by any county or city. They have learned that they can do whatever they want with impunity as the State Attorney General will NOT prosecute.

    The list of atrocities is so vast that it is almost unbelievable.

    No Home Rule Municipality can enforce ANY state or county statutes. They have NO AUTHORITY on any state or county road/highway.

    Those two statements alone are enough to reverse the convictions for at least 50% of all fines that have been levied.

    As the alleged ‘officers’ have no authority under Texas Statutes, they are impersonating ‘officers’ which is a felony, they cannot carry weapons, and they certainly can’t operate those very expensive Commercial Motor Vehicles!

    Are ALL cops bad? YES! Because the ‘good’ ones can’t/won’t stop the bad ones who are killing/raping/pillaging/plundering the citizens! The ‘good ones’ must find enough good citizens to create a common law court and take the law BACK!

    Treason is aiding and abetting the enemy and the overt evidence is the deliberate violation of law as proven by their wearing the uniform. The punishment for TREASON is HANGING!

  • No I don’t. At one time I stayed in the car and watched and listened as two deputies handled a very hostile situation. Both were focused on the situation they responded to (different cars), not looking to see what I was seeing. They reacted with complete restraint and professionalism in the face of verbal abuse from somebody who could have been ticketed or arrested for her behavior. They sent her away with a warning. There would have been a perfect time if they were bad to taint her car, and arrest her for possession if that BS was true.

    This crap of buttholes constantly bashing police and tainting them all with the same tar is exactly that – crap. A lot of the gun control (and ban) supporters look at all of us 2nd amendment, and survivalist people the same way, as a bunch of psychos, all wanting to go out and shoot everybody else and making them feel unsafe.

    But we know that is not true, like bad cops it is an extremely small percentage that are bad.

  • Hidden cameras on citizens and dash cams in POVs is starting to make sense. Without witnesses or audio-video evidence, no one stands a chance against over-aggressive law enforcement actions. And, like has been pointed out below, a citizen can make false charges of police brutality almost with impunity.

  • Mike i dont believe that thunder head iis wrong these things do happpen . I live in a smaller town in michigan and we were on my property a cop came to talk to me about another incident cop left turned around came back to my property started harrassing my youngest son for no reason , he then jumped on my sons back tripping him and makeung him fall to the ground my si was 14 at the time my 15 year old son heard the commotion and seeing what was going on booted the cop in the chest . The cop called for back up so my son returned the favor nothing was done to this cop for assaulting my son . Si yes these things di happen and the only reason you only get one side of the story is because the cops dont want the public to know how they work. With that being said i dont feel that all cops are bad they just need to know that the public is tired of all the crap going on and we are ready to start taking matters into our own hands since the cops and the rest of the government dont want to do the job they are getting paid to do.

  • You shouldn’t take it from your government either, yet here we are debating a poorly written one sided story about how bad cops are, from a writer being paid to further the anti cop rhetoric in America. So it’s your choice, you deal with a few bad cops occasionally like we have always had, or you continue to lap up these stupid exaggerated stories and let their government inch us closer and closer to martial law.

  • he needs to get a good attorney and sue the hell out of this prick! nothing but a big shot wanna be some asswipe deputy!

  • What matters is “who you are”, not what you did. That is true in politics, city govt. on up. Some cops are dedicated, do their duty, and others are corrupt. What is the public to think or do? In this case the cops are beyond corrupt.

  • This story is incomplete if this man started this incident that the story should have stated he was under arrest. But is hard to deny the picture of this man’s face that is excessive force. It doesn’t say he was arrested or taken to a hospital or his wife was arrested it is so incomplete a conclusion is im possible to draw. It is obvious that the author had a predrawn conclusion that he wanted everyone to come to.
