Ten people were arrested, dozens of minor injuries were reported, several emergency vehicles were damaged or destroyed and a Michigan State Police trooper was fired upon. An investigation cleared the officers of any wrongdoing.  [more] and [more]

MESSAGE to Brownsville Police: "How Many More Atrocities will be Allowed?"

by Patricia Fay Fournet.
 Kermith Sonnier, Jr. was stalked and shot by two white police officers in the state of Pennsylvania.

        Apparently it is "Open Season" on citizens as law enforcement officers are stalking people at gunpoint and then shooting them as though they are wild game.One must address the mindset of the individual who is capable of committing such distorted behavior.One must address the true intent of an agency that practices the violent shooting of unarmed people as standard operating procedure; referring to such acts as "clean," or "done according to policy".One must also address the detrimental effects that are caused by this agency and by a government that supports and protects its' continued operations of desecrating basic human rights.Redstone Township Officer H. Dennis Fields and Brownsville Borough Officer Autumn Fike forced an unarmed man, namely,  Kermith Sonnier, Jr., into a vehicular chase that led to a wooded area near Brownsville Pennsylvania, where they then shot him in the back and killed him. He was 37 years old and a native of Oberlin, Louisiana.
        Assistant District Attorney Nancy Vernon said she saw "no problem", with the incident.Had the incident involved a member of Ms. Vernon's family, her Mama, perhaps, I imagine her perception of the event would be quite different.I can tell you that I see a huge problem in the events that took place on May 5th when my cherished friend was brutally murdered by Dennis Fields and Autumn Fike. I see a huge problem in Nancy Vernon's position as Assistant District Attorney when she condones inhuman acts of murder. I see the need for a public outcry and insistence that these conditions change immediately. Had these issues been acted upon when State Trooper Samuel Nassan committed the cowardly act of  killing a 12-year-old child named Michael Ellerbe, shooting him in the back as he climbed over a fence, perhaps my dear and brilliant friend would not have been gunned down in cold blood?
        How many more atrocities shall be allowed?
        How may I, a Louisiana resident, incite the change that is so obviously needed? How does a person like Nancy Vernon, who is so desensitized to the plight of the human condition, land a position of authority, enabling her social deviance to wreak havoc upon townspeople?
        Why do psychological misfits such as Autumn Fike and Dennis Fields secure jobs in the field of criminal justice, where, along with other defective humans, they comprise a collective effort called law enforcement which has so obviously become the disease and not the cure. I challenge Ms. Vernon, Ms. Fike, and/or Mr. Fields, to submit a logical explanation that would justify the murder of my beloved friend Kermith Sonnier, Jr.! I challenge each citizen to become appropriately appalled by the ongoing and disgustingly sadistic, human rights violations committed in this country, against our own brothers and sisters, by law enforcement officers and sanctioned by governmental officials who openly display an abnormal and inhuman attitude of indecency and a sickening disregard for life!

Many Questions Linger in Suspicious Brownsville Police Shooting of Sonnier

        Kermith Sonnier Jr. was shot and killed by a police officer on May 5th. After an alleged traffic violation Police Officers reportedly pursued Sonnier on a high speed car chase through Brownsville and on into the neighboring Village of Century. Police have yet to disclose the nature of the traffic offense. Police claim that during the chase Sonnier circled his car around the police and then attempted to run them down as he drove toward them.[more] Officers, one from Brownsville and another from Redstone Township then fired three shots into his car; one shot killed him. A toxicology report indicted that Sonnier had cocaine in his system.
        However, many inconsistencies have been pointed out in the police version of what happened to Sonnier.  For instance, although Sonnier was shot in the back, police maintain that they shot at him as he charged towards them in his car. Police officials also released statements claiming that Sonnier had damaged several police cars with his truck. Yet photographs that have been taken of the truck since the incident only reveal a slight dent to the vehicle. Moreover, even though the police have stated that three shots were fired at Sonnier the toxicology report indicated that there were no other bullets in the car besides the fatal shot to Sonnier.  Derrick Fisher, an attorney for Sonnier's father has said that Brownsville police have also denied Sonnier's attorneys access to: autopsy reports, toxicology reports and an amateur video of the incident shot by a neighbor. The police confiscated the video tape.
        Fayette County District Attorney Nancy Vernon has stated she will not pursue criminal charges or a criminal investigation against the officers and has said that their actions were "justified". Sonnier's family has retained Attorney Geoffrey N. Fieger, to pursue civil claims against Brownsville on Sonnier's behalf.  The NAACP, Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition and the Pittsburgh Coalition of Concerned Citizens are interested in the case.

Another suit filed against the Dallas Drug task force

The latest incarnation of the Tulia suit comes in the form of a federal suit, similar in form to the Tulia action, that was filed this year by an Amarillo man who says he was abused by members of the same drug task force that conducted the controversial 1999 Tulia drug sting. According to the lawsuit, Plemons was a customer in an Amarillo furniture store Dec. 13, 2001, when officers connected with the PRNTF conducted a drug raid.
