Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Daniel Pantaleo, Chokehold cop, sued THREE TIMES before Eric Garner death by Black men

Chokehold cop had been sued THREE TIMES before Eric Garner death | Daily Mail Online
The New York police officer who held Eric Garner in the chokehold that killed him has been sued three times for allegedly violating the constitutional rights of other blacks he and fellow cops arrested.
A 2013 federal court lawsuit alleges that Daniel Pantaleo, 29, and at least four other officers subjected Darren Collins and Tommy Rice to 'humiliating and unlawful strip searches in public view'.
Collins and Rice were handcuffed and searched for drugs after being arrested on Staten Island in March 2012. Charges against the two men were ultimately dismissed.

USA Today highlighted three cases in which Pantaleo, 29, was involved previously:
• In 2013, a federal court lawsuit alleged that Pantaleo and other NYPD officers subjected Darren Collins and Tommy Rice to “humiliating and unlawful strip searches in public view,” among other violations. The case was settled by the city.
• In a separate incident, in which the case is pending, Rylawn Walker said Pantaleo and other officers arrested him for marijuana possession when he “was committing no crime at that time and was not acting in a suspicious manner." The charges against Walker were dismissed and sealed.
Michael Colihan, a defense lawyer, wrote a letter to the court in the case, saying, “To put it mildly, many police on Staten Island have been playing fast, loose and violently with the public they seem to have forgotten they are sworn to protect.”
• The third lawsuit, filed in November, concerned a marijuana arrest of Kenneth Collins, who said in court documents that he "was subjected to a degrading search of his private parts and genitals by the defendants." The drug charges in that case were also dismissed and sealed.

A grand jury's decision on Wednesday not to indict officer Daniel Pantaleo for his role in the videotaped confrontation that left 43-year-old Garner dead has sparked days of protests by groups claiming U.S. law enforcement unfairly targets African-Americans and other minorities.
