Good News For Once…

Charles Porter

Back in April of ’08, a sixteen year old kid named Juan “Willie” Vasquez was brutally beaten by the Denver po-lice. Young Willie had been drinking and since we all know how the police do, especially the punk-ass gang po-lice, Willie ran. He was chased down by three gang members, oh I mean police gang members, my bad, I mean Gang Unit officers Charles Porter, Luis Rivera and Cameron Moerman. To stop Vasquez, officer Charles Porter threatened to first shoot Vasquez in the back, then he threw his police issued flashlight so hard that it shattered when it hit Vasquez. The sixteen year old, 5′ 6″, 130 pound teen tripped and fell after encountering another ocifer and was consequently beaten to a pulp by at least three popo. According to a Denver Post article from May ’08, Porter then jumped on the kid’s back, shouting racially charged slurs and accusing Vasquez of breaking the flashlight. At least three pigs then commenced to beat the living shit out of Vasquez, with Porter using a fence to gain leverage and stomp the teen’s back, while taking breaks only to punch him in the face. During the whole incident, Vasquez was not resisting and had his hands behind his back, even while he was being stomped by Porter and kicked repeatedly by two or three other fine officers. These actions are so reminiscent of the sensationalized stories we read involving gang jumping’s, that it’s high fucking time we recognize the police for what they are and that’s a terrorizing gang, that has the backing of the state.

The teen continually begged for his life, as he vomited on himself and screamed that he could not breathe. Vasquez suffered “severe internal injuries, including a lacerated liver, a ruptured spleen, severe bruising of the kidneys, contusions to the head and face and severe bruising of the ribs,” (which later turned out to include several broken ribs) according to the Denver Post. As a result, Willie has permanent injuries, including kidney problems and bowel issues.

Amazingly, Porter was arrested and charged with second-degree felony assault for excessive force. No other officers were charged. Two of the other po-lice that beat Vasquez actually testified against Porter, which is a miracle in itself, considering the “blue wall of silence” and that Denver po can actually be punished internally for testifying against one another. Despite the evidence and witnesses, Porter denied everything and was (unsurprisingly) acquitted, even though Vasquez had earlier received an $885,000 settlement from the city for his egregious injuries.

In the latest development officers, Charles Porter, Luis Rivera and Cameron Moerman were FIRED. Yep, you read it right, these fuckers actually got shitcanned. Now let me put this in perspective.

Since Porter was acquitted back in March of ’09, there has been an ongoing internal investigation into the matter, conducted by Safety Manager Al LaCabe. From March ’09 until just yesterday, this pig Porter sat on his fat ass and received pay from the taxpayers of Denver while the “investigation” continued. Officers Luis Rivera and Cameron Moerman continued to terrorize the streets of Denver as paid brutalizers the whole time.

Mr. LaCabe is retiring this week and if this wasn’t the case, I doubt that these ex-popo would have ever seen any form of discipline. Indeed, Porter may have even been reinstated. However, now that LaCabe knows he will not face internal pressures, punishments or being fired himself, he has been able to go ahead and shitcan these brutal pigs. For once, abusive officers have been taken off the streets. However, how many more remain and how many more incidents of harassment, intimidation, beatings, and murders will occur before this fucking department gets put in check?

Another Denver Man Dead at the Hands of the Jakes

The Denver popo killed another unarmed Denver man yesterday. At around one a.m. on July 28, near the corner of Louisiana and Federal, two po-lice gunned down a man that they claim was “armed” with a toy handgun. The details are still sketchy at best, but apparently someone called the dispatch to report a man with a gun. The po knew what they were looking for and what they would encounter. Po-lice spokesman John White claims that when the po-lice pulled up to the  men, they “repeatedly gave commands” for them to get down. However, according to the Denver Post, an eyewitness named Larry Trujillo, claims that he heard no verbal exchange between the men or officers before the shooting. Trujillo claims to have seen one of the men reach for his waist and pull out what “looked like a real gun.” Well, we all know what happens next, five to seven shots and the unidentified man is dead. I’m not gonna say too much more about this incident because the details just aren’t there, but it sounds like some contradictory bullshit. We’ll keep you up.

A Pig By Any Other Name

Officer Mike W. Morelock

Badge #: 05051

The Denver Post has reported on the suspension of Mike Morelock during an investigation into use of excessive force.  Morelock has been in the Denver Police Department since 2006.  During his first two years alone “serving” our city, he got 21 claims of use of excessive force.  21 reported claims, in the first two years, that means if he kept on track he should be to about 84 claims by now, that is if he did not increase his intimidation tactics and violence to scare people from making complaints.  This only takes into account officially reported claims, which usually report only about 1/3 of actual abuses.  So it seems pretty obvious to anyone, that his pig is a violent motherfucker.

On Wednesday Denver resident Tyler Mustard filed a a federal lawsuit against the City and County of Denver, as well as Morelock and pig Kimberly Thompson.  Mustard was violently attacked by Morelock and Thompson for being suspected of spray painting a van.  As a result Mustard had head injuries and a collapsed lung, and shocker Morelock testified that Mustard had assaulted him first, quite obviously a lie and classic pig trick.  Just hours before Morelock attacked Mustard, he had been questioned by internal affairs about another use of excessive force complaint, in which Morelock broke his own car window to attempt to justify his criminal violent behavior.  This psycho pig is out of control and yet the investigation is into “use of excessive force” not “excessive use of force”, which means the state is investigating a single incident as being problematic, as opposed to the latter which means too much force in too many incidents.

Why is the state only looking at this one incident, when obviously this pig has a history of excessive use of force and has lied time and time again to protect himself or his fellow swine.  In addition Morelock plead guilty to DUI charges he got in February 2009 in Commerce City.  Oh and did I forget to mention, this fucker is on PAID suspension, so our hard earn dollars have paid him to brutalize our fellow citizens and continues to pay him to sit on his ass.  Fuck this pig, fuck the system that will most likely let him off and back on the streets.

West Denver CopWatch has now been operating on an active level for a little over eight months with our website up and running since mid January.  In that span of time we have released roughly 19 videos, established a state of the art police database featuring 75 officers, and have made strides toward our mission of community determination and police accountability.

Over the next six months WDCW foresees a continuation of all of our past achievements, as well as several summer projects including a release of an in-depth zine featuring both the raw data of police complaints, violations, and cases of brutality over the last year.

In addition to that, WDCW intends to create a separate zine documenting and attempting to venerate every poor soul in the Denver area that has been murdered by the DPD over the last fifteen plus years. We will also be embarking on an intense campaign to expand, strengthen, and extend our work throughout the Denver area working with CopWatchers around the state.

In order to take our game to the next level we must extend our hands for donations.  Though we are an extremely active group, we are small in number and our pockets are light.  We pay for everything ourselves and hope that those of you who are able to support our endeavors by donating to WDCW would be willing to do so at this time in solidarity with not only us, but also our cause.  Expenses include cameras, tapes, gas, cards, zines, printing, outreach, community building, networking, workshops, and basic upkeep.  For those of you that can assist us with monetary donations we would be greatly obliged.  As always we also ask for everyone’s continued support and collaboration.
