This is a social as well as a political question. I'm not sure it is appropriate for this forum, but I paid my fee and will take my chances. I have been wondering for a couple of years now why the President refuses to speak out against the daily massacre of young blacks in Chicago? He spoke out about Ferguson, Baltimore, etc., etc., but will not demand that the violence stops in his adopted hometown. It can't be a partisan issue can it? If I were President, I would go on national TV and tell the thugs in Chicago that it stops today. If not, the 101st AB will be there to protect the lives and property of innocent people. I think of Ike and JFK sending Federal troops to troubled areas in the South during the Civil Rights days.

Insread of physical, I have an emotional police brutality

Insread of physical, I have an emotional police brutality case. I was a victim of a random act of violence, assault and battery case in Orange Park, FL. The police severely mishandled my case, were not empathetic to my situation, were very discouraging, and treated me as if I had just fallen down instead of been nearly beaten to death. I gave them the name, address, phone number, and picture of my attacker, but they never put it on my incident report nor questioned him in person. I went to the District Attorney's office, and was told by the investigative assistant due to lack of evidence, it would be a "waste of time." I asked him if there was any sort of victim assistance or someone else of legal nature I was speak with and was basically stone walled. Due to the police not doing their job, I am unable to collect victim compensation since my attacker is was not charged and prosecuted.I've tried to find a lawyer or at least be pointed in the right direction but it seems like no one wants to help me.My attacker used my head as a punching bag and stomped my ankle causing it to break in 2 places, dislocate, and tear a ligament. I'm currently disabled from it.Ultimately, I would like to sue Orange Park Police, the investigator, and charge & prosecute my attacker.Any help would be greatly appreciated. I already have copies of my incident report, hospital records, other medical records, and other documents pertaining to this incident.

A woman who now lives in Indiana stalked us by phone when

A woman who now lives in Indiana stalked us by phone when she lived in New Mexico. There is a lot more to this story and we can send you a video and cc's of pictures, but now I need to know in which state I need to start legal proceedings, Indiana or New Mexico? I live in Florida. This situation took place 2 years ago and it has taken this long to get over our grief and take action...yes, this woman's actions resulted in the death of her husband, my ex-husband and father of our daughter. It also involves police brutality and nursing home neglect. We are not seeking compensation, we are seeking justice for an 86 year-old man who could not fight for himself and was brutalized by those around him.

My son is 22. never been in trouble. He and his fiancé were in a night club..his fiancé ca

my son is 22. never been in trouble. He and his fiancé were in a night club..his fiancé came up to him crying that a man was offending her. My son was playing pool and had a pool stick in his hand. Without thinking he hit the man in the head with the stick. The blow detached the man's retina. my son is white,the victim is black. My son is very remorseful and admits all responsibility. the victim and family are playing the racist card{my son's best friend is black] and demanding a long prison sentence. My son's lawyer says theres nothing he can do...its a bad time for a case like this because of Ferguson and Baltimore and they are going to make an example out of him. His lawyer is very complacent and we are having to do all the leg work. Most of the info has come on CD's and our lawyer does not know how to look at them. should my son have to go to prison because quote" the procecutor does not want to cause another Ferguson ordeal". Should we fire lawyer and seek better counsil?

Hi and thanks for the great answer. I appreciate the time.

Hi and thanks for the great answer. I appreciate the time. Oh one more thing about the merchandise. For one all the receipts are in my name and was siezed for possible stolen items. I HAVE EVERY RECEIPT FOR EVERYTHING THEY TOOK!! Except things like the old coins my grandfather and father gave me thru out my lifetime. $80,000 in coins that cannot be replaced. Today I received the discovery CD from the DA and it shows my husband is being charged with theft of a vehicle. He was arrested twice. July 9 with a search warrant and took our entire safe, and on Aug. 19 for the vehicle. Now the July 9 arrest is nowhere on this CD or in the system WOW. The order I previously asked u about said they had 15 days to charge or release. The bill of info was filed on March 19. That is 16 business days from Feb. 24. They r still in violation correct? And our merchandise has NOTHING to do with what they r trying to charge him with. I am beside myself with the absolute corruption of these so called law enforcement agencies. Since the July 9 arrest isnt on the discovery CD I'm terrified they are trying to keep our things. I have a year and a day. July is not far. I started these pleadings in Jan. We r not wealthy people and do not have the funds to fight these sorry bastards. Sorry for the language. Oh and the arresting detective told me he is a coin collector also. How convenient!!!! I truly think I need a civil attorney that will not be afraid to fight these people. When they came in at 5 am July 9th my husband was arrested outside our home and he told them I was alone, naked, and asleep. They still rammed open the back door, shot smoke bombs at me and forced me to drop the blanket or they would shoot. Crying I did, was grabbed handcuffed and thrown onto my floor while a woman officer was called to come dress me. 5 men stood over me with pointed guns while she dressed me and would not release my handcuffs for me to dress with dignity. We r quiet law abiding citizens and have never been in any trouble with the law before. Years ago my husband dated the lead detectives wife. They only had an arrest warrent for my husband and were not there for me. We were not married yet. We recently married this pass Oct. Sorry its so long. Idk where else to turn or what else to do. I am told I have a huge civil case and would love to persue that avenue. Know any good civil attorneys that would not be afraid to buck their system? Im desperate!! Thanks sooo much!!! Dawn

He states he will review, investigate but has ignored doing anything except saying he will. There was an altercation where the prior officer, may now have a complaint filed by me. My insurance company wants the final result of burglary prior to any payments.How do I proceed to get the final results of the investigation.
