Police torture in Knoxville TN
[link to www.ogrish.com]

When Tennessee law enforcement officials showed up at the home of Lester Siler, who they suspected of drug use, they asked Lester's wife and son to leave. They didn't know that Lester's wife had turned on a tape recorder in the kitchen.

When Lester exercised his constitutional right not to sign a consent to search his house, these officers spent the next two hours torturing him. They beat him with bats and guns, held loaded guns to his head, threatened to shoot him, dunked his head in the toilet, burned him with lighters, attached his testicles to a battery charger, threatened to cut off his fingers, and threatened to "go get" his wife and take his child away from him. Then they arrested him for "evading arrest"."

You can here nearly 40 minutes of the tape recording HERE

Too bad AC 91979 does not live in Knoxville; it would be great to report to the cops that he is selling drugs out of his house!

Justice was served.

Four former Campbell deputies sentenced to prison for suspect abuse

Lester Eugene Siler was threatened and beaten by the former deputies.

Four former Campbell County Sheriff's Deputies were sentenced to prison Wednesday.Advertisement

Five deputies pleaded guilty to conspiracy in the abuse of Lester Siler in June of 2004. The deputies went to Siler's Campbell County home because they suspected drug activity.

Their assault of the suspect led to their firings and charges against them. They were accused of violating Siler's constitutional rights.

Siler's wife secretly taped the deputies while they were in the Siler home.

In one excerpt of the tape, Deputy David Webber is heard saying to Siler:

"Let me tell you something. We're gonna know everybody that's supplying you. We're gonna know everything about your business today. And you're gonna take us and where you got your money, we're gonna take every dime you have today, and if we don't walk out of here with every piece of dope you got and every dime you got your (expletive) (expletive) is not going to make it to jail. And if you think we're joking, we're not."

Before sentencing on Wednesday, the deputies' attorneys painted a very different picture of the men facing the judge.

"Sammy has a history of good deeds, not only in the community but nationally. He served in the military for years, he served on the Campbell County Sheriff's Department for 17 years. He truly has never had a single complaint filed against him," said former Deputy Samuel Franklin's attorney, Andrew Roskind.

Friends and family accompanied the men to the Howard Baker Federal Courthouse for their sentencing, and the deputies had hundreds of letters of support from family, friends and community members.

The judge took this all into consideration, but
David Webber was sentenced to 57 months in jail; Samuel Franklin and Shayne Green received sentences of four and a-half years each, while William Carroll will spend four years and three months behind bars.

That is too much time, according to family members.

"I can't describe it, it seems unfair, he did wrong, but it just don't seem right," said Shayne Green's brother, Gary Green.

But Lester Siler's family says they are satisfied.

"Mr. Siler and his family respect the judgment that was handed down by the court today, and they look forward to moving on with their lives," said Siler's attorney, Kristie Anderson.

On Tuesday, another of the five deputies, Joshua Monday, received a sentence of six years.

Re: Police torture in Knoxville TN
It doesnt surprise me, although it does make me very angry and resentful. Our police forces have become nothing but militarized thugs, hell bent on enslaving and brutalizing the average citizen.

What makes me sick is the families reactions to the sentences, and how they claim the cops are "good people". Sorry, but good people do NOT do this to those who they are suppose to serve, as we are their employers, they are NOT ours!

Those cops must have been playing at being US soldiers.

Funny, when the public approves of torture as a means of getting information from foreigners they always seem shocked that the tactics eventually find their way back home. You reap what you sow. America has a history of both using torture and teaching torture methods but now it's out in the open and all the world knows about it.

Land of the strong and the brave? Pleeeaaase not even close. Land of the heavily armed, scared and agressive? Yeah I'll give you that one. Gods country? Probably, afterall this is the guy that got pissed off and drowned the Earth in his fit of rage.

hopefully they will have the same upstanding prison accomodations as the people they probably set up to convict


No sleep for these bacon boys-they will see how reality bites them in the ass...well, maybe not bites...
