Nowadays, crimes like this occur multiple times on a daily basis. And, believe it or not, there are still spittle chins out there who are willing to make excuses for the costumed thugs. Gas chambers are not far behind. — jtl, 419

APD officer suspended following arrest of woman


A woman says an Austin police officer slammed her to the ground and seriously hurt her during an arrest. Charges against her were dropped and the officer has been suspended for eight days.

He says he didn’t do anything wrong.

“I hear Vanessa crying. She ain’t doing nothing to them. She ain’t doing nothing to nobody.”

That is the voice of Vanessa Price’s husband. He used his cell phone to record video of her arrest last May. He rushed to his friend’s house after he says while talking on the phone, he heard Vanessa being roughed up by a police officer.

“Why do you have my wife in custody,” he shouted. “Why did you tackle my wife sir?”

Shortly before the arrest, several couples met at a South Austin home for a get-together.

Vanessa says one guest got too intoxicated to drive home.

“We didn’t want her driving home so we called a cab for her. She, I guess got into a fight with the cab driver. Police were called out,” Vanessa Price said.

Vanessa says she went outside to see what was going on.  According to APD, Officer Jermaine Hopkins told her she was detained and to sit on the curb. In the disciplinary memo, it is noted that Vanessa never gets closer than 20 to 30 feet from Hopkins. Vanessa then called her husband and was told to hang up.

When she failed to comply, she says this happened…

“He slammed me to the ground,” she said. “I had bruises on my face. I had scratches from the stickers in the grass. I had to do physical therapy for eight weeks for my shoulder and my arm.”

Vanessa was charged with interference with public duties and resisting arrest.

“I used to have a huge admiration for [police]. I used to feel really safe, now I don’t at all. I don’t trust them to make the right decision,” Vanessa said.

On Thursday Officer Hopkins was given an eight day suspension.

The department disciplinary memo states “officer Hopkins’ chain of command had concerns regarding Officer Hopkins’ handling of the call for service and the arrest of Mrs. Price.”

His supervisors filed an internal affairs complaint and contacted the county attorney’s office to request charges against Price be dropped.

The memo also states, “Hopkins stated that he would not have handled the situation any differently and that he believes that the charges filed against Mrs. Price were valid.”

Hopkins plans to appeal.

Sgt. Wayne Vincent, president of the Austin Police Association backs him up.

“Officers are very uncomfortable if they have someone under detention, letting someone make a phone call,” Vincent said. “We’ve had instances where that phone call resulted in other people showing up at the scene. So, when someone is detained by the police they may ask them not to make that phone call it’s for the safety of the officer.”

Because of his appeal, the department will not comment on the issue or release the dash camera video. Vanessa says eight days isn’t good enough.

“I’m surprised he’s working there at all. I don’t think he should be able to make these kinds of calls,” Vanessa said.

The homeowner was also arrested that night. He was the person who approached Officer Hopkins and gave him the intoxicated woman’s keys. He said trying to do the right thing. He says Hopkins arrested him immediately. He was charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor and public intoxication. He has an attorney and is fighting those charges.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.

    Gunny, I just boil with rage to read stuff like this. What is the answer? Gunfire of resistance? I am really conflicted. Part of me wants to return to the US and stomp these pricks. The other partreminds me thatthis typeof tyrannyis exactly what Ichose to leavebehind for peoplemore foolish than myself to deal with. Am I an example of exalted wisdom orof plain cowardice? Somebody is going to have to rise up andcut the throats oftheseanimals on all the multiple levels in which they raise their ugly heads. Who has the courage? Where is the leadership? Adam Kokesh? Antonio Buehler? You? The time has come for violent resistance to stuff like this. When it starts at the bottom it will carry onup to the top. But one thing is for sure : it isALL going to have to come down. We can then start over from ourroots.



    • “Leadership?” How, what, when and where?

      I saw what happened in Vietnam when Nixon’s “Vietnamization” strategy was implemented. When the end of a war is in sight and as the war is winding down, nobody wants to be the last man to die and the soldier’s behavior changes accordingly.

      That same perfectly normal, perfectly natural phenomenon is at work here too. Except that it is that nobody wants to be the FIRST to die either. And, only a fool wouldn’t believe that he/she would not die if he/she dared attempt to start the process.

      And history bears it out. Actually, it began a long time ago and has been happening ever since. Read Vin Suprynowytz (sp?) “The Ballad of Carl Drega” that documents numerous cases where they have been picking the old fools off one by one for a long time.

      When the gas chambers are in full operation, the “when they come for our guns” guys will still be sitting around the campfire, drinking beer and talking about their “cold dead fingers.” I quit associating with them a long time ago.

      I am reminded of the two Jews standing in line to get into he gas chamber. One is bitching about how long and slow moving the line is and how inefficiently the process is being run. The other admonishes him: “Shhhh! Izzi, you are going to get us into trouble.”

      It is going to take some sort of catastrophic event to trip the trigger and, even then, I am not sure that it will ever happen. And expatriation is only a temporary fix–you only trade one Slave card (passport) for another–and this is a world wide phenomenon.
