Never Call a “hero” to Help . . .

On August 16, 2014, Angela Lopez had an altercation with her daughter. So, she called armed government workers – cops – to help her resolve this situation. She told the Free Thought Project:

“I was involved in a physical incident with my oldest daughter that turned out bad. I was really upset because she had hit me and bit me in the knee. I wanted her and her ex-boyfriend out of my home. After they refused to leave, I called 911 to get someone to come out to help me remove or escort them out of my house,” Lopez explained.

When the armed government workers arrived, one of them – Francisco Salazar – became instantly belligerent.

As Lopez explains, “He entered into my front door which was open. The first thing I told him was if he could please talk to my daughter because she wouldn’t listen to me. His first reply was ‘Shut up and give me your ID!’ So I turned to my other daughter in the hallway and asked her to get my purse in my room. Then (he) took a step towards me, got in my face and raised his voice loudly, and told me, ‘Did I tell her to give it to me? No! I told you to give it to me!’”

“Look, officer, you don’t have to yell at me. I’m not disrespecting you in any way,” Lopez replied.

Salazar then became even more aggressive.

“Well, you don’t listen!” He pointed out his finger toward Lopez, saying, “Now step outside and let me talk to your daughter!”

Lopez says began to realize  that calling armed government workers may have been a bad idea.

“At that point, I had a bad feeling this would not go good and that I could not trust him to help me resolve this, not with his aggressive attitude. I was upset, shocked and confused about why he was treating me that way, especially when I was the one who called the police for help,” Lopez said. “So at that point, after he told me that, I told him, ‘You no what, if you want to talk to my daughter, you and her can step out and you can talk to her out there. This is my house.’”

Salazar then demanded her ID once more and when she asked why, he attacked.

In video taken of the incident, we see Salazar yank Lopez out of her house and slam her down in the front yard.

“He grabbed me by my wrist twisted my arm slightly and yanked me out of my house. When I was on the ground he kept telling me to give him my arm, knowing darn well, I couldn’t because my arm was trapped under my body and he was on top of me. He even bent my arm all the way in half, behind my back applying his pressure against it, hurting my shoulder really bad,” she said.

Salazar’s attack and “stop resisting” remarks are typical in police takedowns. Salazar demanded Lopez give him her arms, while at the same time making it entirely impossible.

After brutalizing her in front of her children, Salazar then put Lopez in handcuffs and shoved her in the back of his cruiser — with the car turned off.

It was a hot day and Lopez recalls sitting in the back of the cruiser for a half an hour, sweating proifusely before having an asthma attack.

“I could not breathe because he had all his windows rolled up, and it was very hot that day,” Lopez recalls. “I threw up 5 times because I was feeling so sick because I couldn’t breathe. I was left there alone without my asthma meds. About 30 minutes later, he took me to jail and told me he was charging me with Failure to ID.”

After sitting in the jail all day, Lopez was let go with no charges. She’d been assaulted, kidnapped, and caged, for doing nothing wrong.

Naturally, Salazar was never held accountable for the attack and in October, Lopez filed a lawsuit. Lopez is now permanently injured from torn ligaments in her shoulder.

  1. A domestic squabble is one thing that even “good” cops dread for reasons I can’t hope to list. Allowing a “hero” with a history of self-control problems and an bloated ego is a recipe for DISASTER.

    Any guy, if he has a belligerent wife or g/f should just get the hell out, right away, and don’t look back. Just as with the cops, record, Record, RECORD all encounters with a contentious female. It may save your ass from a false DV charge or WORSE. And don’t bother to EVER call the police, even if clearly you’ve been assaulted, even with a weapon! Just back off and LEAVE. The trouble with “her word against yours” is that hers is enough for them to justify an arrest on a DV charge, due to “mandatory arrest” policies for the “likely perpetrator”, which is code for “arrest the MAN.” The facts don’t matter, the police get their “bean”, so to speak. for making the arrest, and their attitude is to “hook ’em, book ’em, and let the courts figure it out.” Even assuming that the case is quickly dropped for lack of evidence, you’ll still face bail expenses, potential and likely loss of employment, and huge social stigmatization. Which, if you’re actually guilty, you DESERVE, but in the feminazi moral panic over this subject, for all practical purposes it’s “GUILTY until PROVEN innocent”, and they don’t have much use for facts and/or logic or reasoning.

  2. Whenever I see a video such as this, I ask myself what I would do in such a situation, where I to be a bystander. Would I have the courage to defend her? The video was complete enough to show that in no way was the woman doing anything wrong. She was being assaulted and beat up, plain and simple. If say, the boyfriend came out of the house with a baseball bat and did some business with it, it would have been justified. However, the *entire system* is so corrupt, so rigged, AND SO SUFFOCATING, that should anyone have stepped in to defend that poor woman, they would have been ruined. Eventually, the abuse will get to a point where people won’t care about the consequences and start to intervene when a situation such as this comes up.

    Now, I’m not a conspiracy theorist, or doom-and-gloomer or anything, but I *truly* believe that you should NEVER, EVER, call the cops for anything but when you witness a crime in progress. NEVER, EVER, let them into your house for any reason. (unless they have a warrant).

    If they ever do come to your house NEVER, EVER, step *outside* of your house. Do not let any of your kids step outside of the house either. They cannot grab you if you are inside your house. They cannot throw you out of your house, if you are inside. They cannot remove your kids if they are inside the house. That is why the cop told the lady to go outside. Then he could lawfully beat the shit out of her. He could not do that should she be inside her own house.

    I’m generally not a fan of the ACLU, but they have a series of videos and other material that give practical advice on how to deal with cops on the street. They explain this for the majority of reasons a citizen’s path would cross a cop’s.

    • The cops play this game every day they are on the job. Most people rarely play if at all. However we are supposed to remember a long list of various incantations and actions which must be done to perfection in the proper order or they are null and void. Or even worse spark the cop to anger.

      When the time comes that some badge wearer inserts itself into my life I can’t remember all the specifics of the magic spell that is supposedly going to restrain them or at least give me the advantage when the play gets reviewed up in the booth after the fact.

      It’s all about creating something that people won’t do with perfection even if the meaning is clear. This is so the peanut gallery can look at someone being trampled upon and say ‘but see, he requested his lawyer before he was told he was being detained so the cop can legally beat the shit out of him for obstruction of justice’. And that’s how it goes. That’s freedom in the modern USA.

      Six thousand years later and it’s still nonsense of magic boxes, special animals, and casting spells.
