South African Cops Out Brutalize US Counterparts

The US media has been abuzz lately over the almost weekly incidents of police brutality caught on video by the general public. In New York City, on July 17, 2014, Eric Garner was killed by New York police, including officer Daniel Pantaleo who appeared in a video to be holding Garner in a choke hold.

police_arrest_Garner

Although the medical examiner ruled Garner’s death a homicide, a grand jury declined an indictment. Pantaleo was not charged.

And what terrible crime did Garner commit? He was charged with selling “loosies,” which are single cigarettes sold without the proper tax. (1) What does a single cigarette sans tax sell for? 20-25 cents?

For want of tax on a two-bit cigarette, Eric Garner, father of six, gave his life. Naahh! That doesn’t sound like police overkill to me. Clearly, it was justifiable homicide. We cannot have common criminals cheating the government out of 5 cents tax, now can we?

In South Carolina cops dispense with the choke holds and shoot unarmed motorists in the back, or at least that is what patrolman Michael Slager allegedly did last April 4, 2015.

Slager, who is white, pulled over African American motorist Walter Scott for a broken tail light, a capital crime if ever there was one. For some reason the confrontation escalated, Scott tried to flee, and Slager emptied eight rounds into Scott’s back.

It’s a good thing that Slager loaded up on hollow points the previous week. An officer needs all the fire power he can muster in these troubled times.

Here’s a pictorial showing the course of events:

The big question here is why did a simple traffic stop escalate into the death of a motorist? Slager said that Scott grabbed Slager’s taser at which point Slager “felt threatened.” Other pundits speculate that Scott was afraid of being arrested for an outstanding warrant for unpaid child support, making him behave in a threatening manner.

Perhaps Officer Slager simply woke up that day and decided to end someone. Slager appeared calm, cool and collected throughout the video, even nonchalant. Maybe he calmly looked Scott in the eye and said something like, “Run, (N-word) cuz I’m gonna kill ya.”

That would make me run. I’m handicapped and cannot run, but hearing those words from a crazed looking cop would make me run anyway.

In 1985 in Tennessee v. Garner, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the Fourth Amendment permits police to shoot at a fleeing suspect only when he “poses a threat of serious physical harm, either to the officer or to others.” (2) That, of course, or a broken brakelight. It’s a little known codicil to the Court’s decision that Police can shoot you if you have a broken brakelight.

Despite all of the hullabaloo about the violent behavior of U.S. police officers, the USA is no where near the worst in the world when you compare police violence.

MidoMacia2

Compare U.S. police escapades to that of their South African counterparts and the U.S. cops simply pale by comparison. Mido Macia would undoubtedly confirm that statement, if he were still alive that is.

Emidio Josias Macia, known as Mido, was a Mozambican immigrant to South Africa and a taxi driver who was killed near Johannesburg while in the custody of the South African Police Service (SAPS) on February 26, 2013. (3) The manner in which Mido came to be in police custody and part of the cause of his death were captured on video.

Watch the following video only if you have a strong stomach, cuz it ain’t pretty. NSFW:

The brazenness of the SAPS in this video is remarkable. They had to know that at least one person in the large crowd of onlookers would be filming their brutality, yet they deliberately tortured the man to death anyway.

Just how did the Police justify their behavior? They claimed that Macia had caused a traffic jam and then resisted arrest. (4) Well, that explains it then. Case closed.

Macia was found dead hours after his dragging in a police holding cell, lying half dressed in a pool of blood. (5) Half dressed means he was discovered sans trousers even though the video shows him wearing what appeared to be blue jeans at the time of his “arrest.”

A second autopsy that was ordered after the first autopsy, which was a typical whitewash, blamed Mido’s death on a jailhouse fight. The second autopsy stated that Macia died of hypoxia, which is a lack of oxygen, “but he also sustained deep cuts to his arms, possibly in an attempt to defend himself, and there were bruises over his body, his face and his genitals. Almost all of his internal organs were damaged, and he had suffered bleeding around his brain.” (6)

See how creative the SAPS are? They don’t rely on the old tried and true to eliminate their victims. Any number of Macia’s injuries might have eventually killed him, so the SAPS left nothing to chance. Very thorough, those SAPS lads.

Compare that to South Carolina’s Officer Slager, who dispatched Walter Scott with eight rounds to the back. No creativity there.

A British newspaper, The Guardian, reported that during a recent five year period a total of 11,880 criminal cases were opened with the South African Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID). This resulted in just 2,576 prosecutions and 129 convictions‚ meaning that only 1% of criminal cases opened against police officials ended in a conviction. (7)

That 1% probability of any penalty would explain the SAPS’ brazenness in the Macia case. Why not do the crime if you know you won’t do the time?

And what has happened in the two + years since Macia’s death? Nine SAPS have been charged, and the trial has been postponed and postponed again. The latest trial date is set for July 2015. What do you want to bet it will be delayed again?

U.S. cops have a long way to go to catch up with the vile violence of their South African counterparts, but don’t sell our boys and girls in blue short. Yankee ingenuity has won out in the past.

Now all of you American cops get busy and start offing the public.

Nasty Dude Urinates on Drug Store Cough Drops – Caught on Video

A big, scary nasty dude is caught on CCTV video urinating on Walgreens drug store cough drops right out in the open. The public urination appears to have occurred around 10:30 PM local time in Sanford, Florida.

Be careful buying cough drops in Sanford, Florida, although the police have apprehended the alleged desparado and identified him as Larry Donell White Jr., who was arrested after Sanford police received a tip from someone who saw the story on the news.

White allegedly caused $301 in damage by choosing the drug shelves for relieving himself ruining about 100 packages of cough drops in the process. White was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and culpable negligence.

It seems that White refused to inform the police why he chose to urinate when and where he did. Maybe he just had to go?

“Then I See His Penis Out” – Video

A loud, redheaded woman who is all New Yorker nabs a flasher on the subway with the help of a couple passengers.

The trash mouth redhead is not afraid to give the flasher a piece of her mind, and her language is not at all pretty, so you have been warned. The vid is safe for work if you have headphones, otherwise it’s NSFW.

The redhead recounts the deed, “I realize he has all this fucking space here.”

“Then I see his penis out! That’s it. Oh, you’re getting fucking arrested. I’m not leaving your side. My plans are done for the night. I’m escorting you to the police station. Okay? Oh yes! Oh, fucking yes. I know what I saw.”

“Where is the fuck is the conductor? Where is the conductor?”

Allegedly, the flasher exposes his johnson covered in a condom. Perhaps he thought that if he exposed little Pierre all covered up, he could not be arrested for indecent exposure?

The really strange thing is that the flasher appears to be a big strapping guy, yet he is meekly submitting to those around him. You would think he might try to fight his way out.

UK Woman in Video Tossing Cat into Trash Defends Herself

Mary Bale prepares to stuff cat into “wheelie-bin”

A woman outside a school in Coventry, England, is caught by closed circuit TV casually tossing a cat into a trash bin when she apparently thought no one was looking.

The international uproar to the incident has been so loud that UK police have been forced to provide police protection for the woman.

“I don’t know what the fuss is about, it’s just a cat.”

Bank Worker Mary Bale told The Sun newspaper, “I really don’t see what everyone is getting so excited about – it’s just a cat. I was walking home from work and saw this cat wander out in front of me.

“I was playing with it, stroking it and listening to it purr as it stood on a garden wall. It was very friendly.

“I don’t know what came over me, but I suddenly thought it would be funny to put it in the wheelie bin, which was right beside me.

“I did it as a joke because I thought it would be funny. I never thought it would be trapped. I expected it to wriggle out of the bin.”

“To think this video is being seen around the world is unbelievable. I’m a very private person and don’t want to upset any members of my family. I don’t know what my relatives will think, but to be honest I think everyone’s overreacting a bit.

“OK, I shouldn’t have done it – but it’s just a cat at the end of the day. I don’t think I deserve to be hated by people all over the world, it was just a split second of madness.

“Cats are good climbers and I assumed it would just scramble out through the lid and go on its way.”

Bale, who works as a customer services assistant at the Royal Bank of Scotland, is now in danger on losing her job over the incident. Said Bale, “I’ve had my boss ringing to ask me what’s going on, and I’ve had to talk to the bank’s security people about what to do if people who think I hurt the cat try to find me.

“Everything has gone crazy because of a stupid spur-of-the- moment thing I did – but I know I only have myself to blame.

“I wish I’d never set eyes on the cat. But what I’m really worried about at the moment is my father who is not very well in hospital.”

As far as criminal complaints, a West Midlands Police spokesman said: “The RSPCA is leading an investigation and will interview the woman shortly.

“Coventry Police are supporting this investigation and urge the public to leave the matter to be dealt with correctly by the authorities. The woman has not been arrested because she has not committed a criminal offence.”

Girl Brutally Beaten as Security Guards Merely Watch – Video

A bus tunnel security video shows a 15-year-old girl, Aiesha Steward-Baker, being brutally beaten while three unarmed security guards for the Seattle Metro Transit appear to be merely watching making no effort to intervene.

According to the Seattle-King County Metro Transit that is exactly what the guards are supposed to be doing, even though one guard apparently cannot keep himself from intervening when he is shown trying to shoo the female perpetrator away.

Unarmed security guards with Metro Transit are trained and under orders not to intervene physically when such violent situations arise in the course of their duties. They are, instead, trained to call it in to 911, which the guards in this incident did.

The first video is one from YouTube which shows the encounter pretty much in its entirety:

The public outcry over the video has prompted Seattle’s Metro Transit and King County authorities to remark that they wished the guards had broken up the fight even though they are directed not to do so.

“We are very disappointed in what people see in that video,” Metro Transit General Manager Kevin Desmond said. “It was absolutely unacceptable.”

Baker’s lawyer, James Bible, is playing the race card. “If this young lady had had blond hair and blue eyes and told police ‘These black kids are following me,’ the response would have been different,” Bible said Friday.

Baker said she asked Seattle police for help several times at a shopping center and Macy’s in the hour before the Jan. 28 attack, but her pleas were rebuffed.

However, the Seattle Times reports that friends and relatives of the four arrested have said the situation has been blown out of proportion. They said the two girls have fought often over the past two years, and that Baker has usually won.

The second video is a CBS News report of the incident:

The video has prompted both King County Metro Transit and the Seattle police each to instigate a review of the video to determine whether any policies need changing.

DC Cop Draws Gun Over Snow Ball Fight

An off duty Washington, DC, policeman draws his gun when local kids pelt his private vehicle with snowballs.

The policeman, who identified himself as Detective Baylor, stopped his vehicle when the kids threw snowballs at it. Upon exiting his SUV, they then pelted him with snowballs.That appears to be when he drew his gun.

Watch the first vid, which is embedded from the Associated Press:

Washington police are now investigating the incident, and it is being reported internationally, with reports even as far away as Australia. Some of the videos have gone viral.

The second video clearly shows that, after Detective Baylor had appeared to have holstered his weapon, a uniformed police officer arrived on the scene and this second officer also has his gun drawn and is holding it down by his right side.

Eventually the second officer also holsters his weapon. Detective Baylor does arrest one young man, and during the arrest the crowd shouts for Baylor to release him.

The second video is a CBS version and is shot from a different angle:

One of the snowball fight participants can be heard telling the uniformed officer that Detective Baylor is “a moron for bringing a gun to a snowball fight.”

At that point Detective Baylor confronts that same snowballer by walking up to the young man getting right in his face. Fortunately nothing else happens at that point and Detective Baylor backs off.

How Texting While Driving Ruins Lives

It seems that virtually all age groups are texting, so all age groups are texting and driving too. The following video graphically shows why texting while driving is illegal in 19 states in the US and will eventually be illegal in all states

The video was made for and with the assistance of the Gwent Police Department, located in Tredegar, Gwent County, South Wales, which is approximately 150 miles west of London in the United Kingdom.

The video is a trailer for a 30 minute film on texting and driving called “COW” that was commissioned by the Gwent Police Department and was produced and directed by Peter Watkins-Hughes, who is an award winning former BBC producer. Hughes also lectures at the Documentary Film & Television department at the Newport School of Art, Media and Design in Wales.

The video was released in July, 2009, and immediately went viral world-wide. Unfortunately, many teens have commented on YouTube, where the video is hosted, that teens click the vid off after aboout 30 seconds. Hopefully, more of them will watch the entire video, and, just as importantly, perhaps their parents will watch it too.

YouTube states that the age groups most watching the video are females between 45-54 and males between 35-54, so at least the parents seem to be watching.

Please be forewarned that the video is graphic in nature.

Please watch:

More information on Peter Watkins-Hughes can be found here.

The YouTube site states that “State of the art digital special effects were utilised to show the impact of what would happen inside the car during impact.” The vid’s special effects were created by Zipline Creative which is also located in the United Kingdom.

The YouTube site for this vid is here, and it  has been viewed over 3.2 million times thus far.

Please do not text while driving. It is just as dangerous as drunk driving.

Fatal Police Shoot Out Caught on Dashcam

Kansas City, Missouri, police chief, James Corwin, released a video of a fatal shoot out between two police officers and a suspect who had driven his SUV into a tree. The video was filmed September 6th, at 7:45 PM by the dashcams of the police cruisers of the two officers involved.

The video was released today because the Jackson County, Missouri, Grand Jury ruled that the police actions shown in this video were justified.

The first video is an Associated Press raw video of the incident:

The video shows the suspect casually raising his arm to shoot at the officers, as if it was an action he did every day. Although the demeanor of the suspect might suggest he was under the influence, a tox screen of the perpetrator showed he had alcohol and marijuana in his bloodstream, but nothing else that might explain his bizarre behavior.

The two veteran Kansas City police officers exchanged dozens of shots with the perpetrator during the climax to what seemed to be a run-of-the-mill fender bender police call.

“It is a wake-up call,” said Mike Perne, the night shift captain on duty that evening. “It was just such a routine call.”

The second video is a report from a local TV station, KY3:

The second video shows a slightly different version of the beginning of the incident.The perpetrator, 36-year-old Exae Chavez-Gutierrez, died in the hail of bullets rained down upon him.

Because of technical requirements of WordPress.com we cannot show the second video here. Please go to In the Spotlite to see the second video.

The first officer on the scene, who is a veteran of nearly 30 years on the force, was faced with a suspect who only wanted to shoot, not to talk.

Officer Eric Turner, who has 10 years on the force, was the back up officer who arrived on the scene just as the gunfire began.

Chavez-Gutierrez continued to point his weapon at the police officers even after he had been shot and had fallen to the ground, which explains why the officers continued to fire such a barrage of bullets at him.

Neither officer was wounded during the incident, and both have now returned to work.

We may never know why Chavez-Gutierrez acted as he did because nothing else stuck out to explain his behavior.

Chief Corwin commented on the shooting in his blog, saying, “I am releasing this video to show you the dangers KCPD officers face daily. We also are committed to being transparent. No officer ever wants to kill another human being, but as you can see in the video, sometimes they are left with no choice.”

Shocking Story – Cop Tasers 10-year-old

Pardon the pun but this one’s a bit of a shocker! Believe it or not but an Ozark, Arkansas, police officer tasered a 10-year-old girl because she would not take a shower.

It’s a story making news worldwide. Officer Dustin Bradshaw was called to the home by the girl’s mother because of a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival Bradshaw found the girl curled up on the floor, screaming. In his police report Bradshaw stated that the girl screamed, kicked and resisted when her mother tried to get her into the shower before bed.

“Her mother told me to tase her if I needed to,” Bradshaw continued.

Bradshaw tried to take the 10-year-old into custody, however, the girl’s behavior quickly changed and she soon was “violently kicking and verbally combative.” He further stated that the girl kicked him in the groin.

That was when he tased her. Bradshaw said in his report that he delivered “a very brief drive stun to her back.”

Ozark Mayor Vernon McDaniel said that the girl was not injured, and she is now residing at the Western Arkansas Youth Shelter in Cecil, Arkansas.

However, McDanial isn’t sure if Officer Bradshaw acted appropriately. McDaniel asked the Arkansas State Police to investigate the incident, but they have declined to do so. Now McDaniel has asked the FBI to do so.

“People here feel like that he made a mistake in using a Taser, and maybe he did, but we will not know until we get an impartial investigation,” said McDaniel.

Ozark Police Chief Jim Noggle, who said that Bradshaw is not facing disciplinary action, also claimed that Tasers are safe.

“We didn’t use the Taser to punish the child — just to bring the child under control so she wouldn’t hurt herself or somebody else,” said Noggle.

Noggle said the officer might have accidentally broken the child’s arm or leg if he had forcibly tried to handcuff her. Chief Noggle actually managed to say that with a straight face.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette has reported that the girl’s father, Anthony Medlock, said the girl has emotional problems but she was not armed and should not have been tasered.

“My daughter does not deserve to be tased and be treated like an animal,” said Medlock. He and the girl’s mother are divorced and the mother has sole custody.

A Funny Case of Wild Police Hot Pursuit

Apparently a police high speed hot pursuit does not mean quite the same thing in Romania as it means in most other parts of the world. Such a phrase usually draws visions of flashing squad car lights, loud police sirens wailing their song and near brushes with death as tires squeal around sharp corners.

In Romania, the police move at a different pace than in America. In Romania the police, they…well, they…Perhaps it would be easier just to watch for yourself:

Yes! That certainly was a dangerous high speed hot pursuit. It is truly amazing that the officers are able to keep up such a rapid chase. Did you skin your knee when you tripped officer? That must really hurt!

Yes, officer, is this your gun? It seems you dropped it because you were in such a hurry. Oh, no! Don’t worry! I won’t tell your captain.

At least the Romanian police can boast that they have very few fatalities due to high speed pursuits.

Cops Who Screw Up – Videos

Cops who screw up! One would think there would be so many possible videos on that subject that you could almost post non-stop forever. But this post is going to stick to cops driving their squad car improperly to the point where they end up in very hot water.

Our first vid is about a police car chase that goes wrong, as far too many of them do, it seems. The cop in this first video actually goes through…well, maybe you should just watch it:

***

If you think a police officer driving his squad car through the brick wall right into a building is bad, this next video isn’t any better. This cop runs into a man in a wheelchair while driving his squad car. Watch:

In grammar school in basic first aid class I was taught: do not move someone injured in an accident. The man in the wheelchair could have further injuries to his spinal cord and not know it. So what does John Law do? He picks the man up and returns him to his chair. John Law flunks Rescue 101.

Minneapolis Cops Again Caught Beating Suspect – Video

Minneapolis police are once again caught on film viciously beating a suspect, who in this case had already surrendered. Nicolas Kastner is the passenger in the getaway vehicle the police are chasing in the below video. When that car stops and the driver, Brian McCarthy, of the vehicle flees the scene, Kastner does not flee. Instead he lies on the pavement with his arms spread indicating that he is surrendering.

Instead of simply arresting him, however, the two officers beat him severely, kick him several times and tase him at least twice.

The following video is a news report of the incident:

Officer Sherry Appledorn, who has been a Minneapolis police officer for 16 years, is seen in the video standing over Kastner and then is seen stomping on his back with her foot. She stomps on him four times, then she proceeds to kick him nine times.

The police state that Appledorn believes at this point that her partner may have been killed from action that took place prior to what is shown in the video, although they do not say if Kastner is a suspect in that regard. Appledorn’s partner, however, is perfectly fine.

Officer Joe Will, who is also a long time veteran of the Minneapolis police with 14 years on the job, next sits on Kastner, after which Appledorn begins kicking him once again.

At this point Appledorn uses her taser on Kastner, tasing him twice.

In a video statement three days after the incident Appledorn states, “The passenger failed to get on the ground. I grabbed him and threw him on the ground face first. [He] started crawling under the squad in an attempt to get away. The suspect refused to place his arms behind his back.”

The video clearly shows that Appledorn’s statement is a blatant falsehood. Officers Appledorn and Will were not charged in the incident and both are on active duty on the Minneapolis police force at this time.

Kastner’s attorney states that he and Kastner have filed a federal lawsuit alleging police brutality, excessive force, and a cover-up – especially by Appledorn.

Minneapolis police chief Tim Dolan said that his department has referred this case to the St. Paul City Attorney for possible prosecution. St. Paul is directly across the Mississippi River from Minneapolis.

This is the second time in less than a month that Minneapolis police officers have been involved in a beating incident that was caught on tape. (1)

The Minneapolis Police department is also suffering criticism because seven of its officers were recently named for being under federal investigation for possible illegal activities while they were members of the multi-jurisdictional Metro Gang Strike Force.

The second video is the raw video of the incident:

The Strike Force was disbanded because of scores of criminal activities by members of the force, (2) including confiscation of cash and property from illegal immigrants and suspected drug dealers. Very little of the confiscated property was ever turned in, but instead became the personal property of the confiscating officers.

Confiscated property included cars, cash, jet skis, TVs, furniture, jewelry, computers, electronic equipment, among other items.

One Minneapolis police officer who is under federal investigation as part of the Metro Gang Strike Force has quit his job amid charges that he used confiscated electronics (3) to stalk his ex-girlfriend.

Plus a Minneapolis Police sergeant who is a former member of the strike force is suing the city of Minneapolis, claiming he was reassigned after trying to blow the whistle (4) on the Metro Gang Strike Force in 2007.

Walmart Patron Slaps Stranger’s Toddler Daughter

Stone Mountain, Georgia, resident, Roger Stephens, allegedly slapped a stranger’s two-year-old daughter Monday in a local Walmart for crying too much.

Stephens had been shopping at the Rockbridge Road Walmart in Stone Mountain, which is a suburb of Atlanta, when he apparently grew increasingly annoyed at the continual crying of a two-year-old girl in the store.

The child’s mother, Sonya Mathews, told police that her daughter was crying as they walked down one of the aisles.

Just moments later, slightly before noon, Stephens approached the child and Mathews, both of whom he did not know, and allegedly said, “If you don’t shut the baby up, I will shut her up for you.”

Shortly afterward, Mathews and her daughter were in another aisle, and the girl was still crying. Stephens allegedly grabbed the girl and slapped her on the face. According to Police he hit the child four or five times.

Afterward he allegedly told Mathews, “See, I told you I would shut her up.”

Another shopper stepped forward and held Stephens until store security arrived. The police report stated that, before police arrived on the scene, Stephens did apologize to Mathews for hitting her child.

The toddler suffered redness to her face but, otherwise, was uninjured. She was treated at the scene and left with her mother, who later told CBS Atlanta that she forgives Stephens, but she feels he may have mental issues.

Stephens was arrested and is being charged with felony first degree cruelty to children. He is being held without bond at the Gwinnett County Detention Center.

High Speed Police Chase Demolishes Pricey Boat – Video

A high speed car chase by Connecticut police results in a total demolishing of a stolen high end boat an alleged thief had been towing behind his truck. It has been reported that the alleged bandit reached speeds of up to 95 miles per hour while trying to elude authorities with his purloined treasure in tow.

Perhaps 95 mph car chases may not be the wisest choice when trying to evade John Law while lugging a hijacked boat.

Minneapolis Police Caught Beating, Kicking Suspect – Video

Minneapolis police have been accused of beating a suspect while apprehending him. In the following video several Minneapolis officers are seen punching Derryl Jenkins of Brooklyn Center, MN, repeatedly and are also seen kicking him as well while he was being held face down in the snow during a traffic stop.

Arresting officer Richard Walker said Jenkins smelled of alcohol and was uncooperative. Since both Jenkins and Walker are both African American, race is not an issue in this incident.

This video is an abbreviated version of the original, and is embedded from the Associated Press:

Minneapolis police Chief Tim Dolan stated that he was concerned about the officers kicking the suspect. In fact the video, which was taken by police car dashcams, prompted Chief Dolan to ask the FBI to investigate the incident, which is a very unusual request for a Minneapolis police chief.

The second video is a report on the incident by a local reporter. About 54 seconds into the video a small box will appear on the screen highlighting one of the police officers kicking Jenkins:

The Minneapolis police Internal Affairs unit has determined that the police seen in this video did nothing wrong even though kicking a suspect is behavior that is not sanctioned by the police. Internal Affairs determined that the officers’ behavior was appropriate for the situation.

Despite the Minneapolis Police Department’s determination that the officers did nothing wrong, the Hennepin County Attorney’s office decided to dismiss all charges against Jenkins “in the interest of justice” and reinstated Jenkin’s drivers license.

Jenkins had been charged with fourth degree assault and refusal to take a breathalyzer test. In Minnesota refusal to take a breathalyzer test results in automatic suspension of your drivers license, which means that any police officer has the power to take away your license merely by saying you refused a breathalyzer test.

This next video is the complete unabridged version of the incident and was distributed by Derryl Jenkin’s lawyer Paul Edlund:

Some officers sent each other text messages after the incident, one of which called the incident “a good fight.”

Grim Sleeper Serial Killer Still Baffles LA Police

The Grim Sleeper, as he is called, has taken 11 lives thus far over a period of more than two decades in the South Central area of Los Angeles. Yet this psychopath is a serial killer who has the LA homicide detectives baffled so far. They have been unable to stop him or discover his identity.

Plus he is also involved in one other case of attempted murder where he shot the victim at point blank range inside his car and then tossed her out of the car to die on the streets of South Central LA.

The victim of that attempted murder was Enietra Margette (not her real name), who did not die on that fateful day 21 years ago and who is the Sleeper’s sole surviving victim. Enietra describes the killer as an African American in his early 30’s (which would make him in his early 50’s now).

On the day she met him on Saturday, November 19, 1988, he looked neat, tidy and kind of geeky. He was a thin preppy type and wore a black polo shirt which was tucked into khaki trousers.

The killer offered her a ride multiple times, but she declined continuously until, finally, she relented.

His vehicle of choice that fateful day was an orange Ford Pinto with a white racing stripe on its hood. To Margette “it looked like a Hot Wheels car,” but the interior impressed her.

The car’s standard gear shift knob had been replaced with a marble ball the size of a ping-pong ball. The car’s interior was white with a white diamond-patterned upholstery.

Enietra and the killer exchanged banter for a while, then he suddenly pulled a pistol from a compartment in the Pinto and shot her in the chest while they were driving.

A surprised Margette remembers being totally baffled about what had just occurred. Why did he shoot her, she thought, and who would take care of her kids if she died?

The following podcast is a 911 call perhaps made by someone who witnessed the killer dump the body of the fourth victim:

Read the transcript of the 911 call.

Blood began trickling down her face onto her blouse, which quickly became soaked with blood. Enietra fell unconscious but was awakened by a flash bulb. The killer had taken her photo and had raped her.

She begged him to take her to a hospital, but he refused because he said he did not want to get caught. They sped through the night with her in the passenger seat beside him, bleeding.

Finally the killer pulled the car over to the side of the road, and there he beat her repeatedly over and over with his gun. After that he pushed her out of the car onto the street and into the darkness of the night to die.

But Enietra refused to die. Somehow she managed to walk several blocks to a friends house leaving a circuitous trail of blood in the street and on parked cars along the way.

When she finally arrived at her friend, Lynda Lewis’, house, Lynda wasn’t home. Instead Lynda and her husband had gone ahead to a party that Enietra had also planned to attend. Enietra collapsed on the front porch.

Lewis and her husband returned home about 1 AM, finding Enietra lying on their porch, nearly incoherent.

Once in the hospital, doctors were unsure if she would survive the night. Somehow she did survive, and Enietra began the long, hard journey back to a normal life fighting through physical therapy sessions and the like.

Enietra is the only known survivor of an attack by the Grim Sleeper. But at least 11 other victims were not as fortunate as she. The Sleeper’s tally of victims thus far is 11-1, or at least that is the running total of the victims that we know of.
