December 8, 2017 – US Policemen Beat Up Innocent Black Man After A Colostomy Bag Was Mistaken For A Gun

Tensions among police and citizens in Euclid, Ohio have come to a head recently after police killed an unarmed 23-year-old man over a marijuana roach and officers were seen on video pulverizing another man over a suspended license. Now, the Euclid police department is sure to become infamous after body camera footage was released as part of a lawsuit against cops who mistook a colostomy bag for a gun and severely beat an innocent man.

Lamar Wright had recently undergone a surgery last year when he was driving home and stopped to use the phone. According to a federal lawsuit filed against the Euclid Police Department on Thursday, Wright had simply pulled over to safely use his phone and was subsequently attacked, assaulted, and arrested by belligerent cops for no reason.

According to the civil complaint, Wright pulled into a driveway on East 212th Street “to safely use his cell phone” on Nov. 4, 2016. Two armed men approached his vehicle, and, realizing they were police officers, Wright placed his car in park and held his hands up.

Officer Kyle Flagg’s gun “was raised and pointed toward Wright,” as he stood next to the driver’s door. Office Vashon Williams stood behind Flagg, his gun raised as well, reports the Cleveland Scene.

Flagg ordered Wright from the vehicle, but before he could even comply, the cops started forcefully prying the recovering surgical patient from the car.

“Flagg yanked on Wright’s left arm,” the lawsuit reads. “Wright was still seated in the car at this time, and had staples in his stomach and a new colostomy bag. This, in combination with Flagg yanking on his left arm, prevented Wright from extending his right arm toward Flagg. … Flagg’s conduct caused Wright extreme pain. Wright cried out to Flagg several times that he was hurting his arm, but Flagg ignored him.”

According to Wright’s civil complaint, two armed men—one black, one white—approached his vehicle, a rented SUV. When he realized they were police officers, Wright says he placed the car in park and held his hands up.

Officer Kyle Flagg’s gun “was raised and pointed toward Wright,” as he stood next to the driver’s door. Officer Vashon Williams stood behind Flagg, his gun also raised. Flagg ordered Wright from the vehicle, but before the unarmed motorist could comply, the cops started forcefully prying Wright from the car.

“Flagg yanked on Wright’s left arm,” the lawsuit reads. “Wright was still seated in the car at this time, and had staples in his stomach and a new colostomy bag. This, in combination with Flagg yanking on his left arm, prevented Wright from extending his right arm toward Flagg. … Flagg’s conduct caused Wright extreme pain. Wright cried out to Flagg several times that he was hurting his arm, but Flagg ignored him.” After he’s yanked from the driver’s seat, Wright is struck, tasered, and maced. What the hell??!

Seems they did not want this to get out. All of this can be seen on the video—body-cam footage that was released only because of Wright’s lawsuit being filed, according to The Free Thought Project.
