APA hosts viewing of video of brothers' arrest

Posted by Elwin Green on February 4, 2014 at 11:10 AM

The Alliance for Police Accountability hosted a public viewing last night of the police cam video from the arrest of Will and Beyshaud El, an arrest accompanied by a beating that left Beyshaud El unconscious.

I missed the meeting, which was titled "Be A Witness," and was held at the Homewood Carnegie Library at 6:30. But APA has now posted the video on YouTube, and here it is:

You need Adobe Flash Player to view this content.

The descrption posted with the video reads:

An unwarranted stop and frisk leads to an assault by the police and false arrest. These two young men go to trial on February 10, 2014 facing a felony offense of assault. Why? Because they walked out of a corner store with purchased items in Homewood. According to Pittsburgh Police Lieutenant Kacsuta report, this was enough reasonable suspicion stop and question them.

She decided to stop them because she could not see what was in their hands.

The young men stopped, discarded all their items onto the sidewalk in her view and asked the officer why was she harassing them.

Holding them against their will, Lt. Kacstuta ordered them sit on the ground and called for back up.
According to her report, the young men continued to ask why is she stopping them and harassing them when the back up officers arrived.

This is where our video begins. As you watch the video, observe how these two young men with no prior criminal records, nor under arrest are: held against their will for no justifiable reason; intimidated and questioned.

Watch the response from the officers as they slammed the 20-year old sibling against the wall when he stood up to question the justification of the officers actions and express his desire to leave being that they did nothing wrong and wasn't under arrest.

Observe how the 17-year old younger sibling is tased until he was unconscious when standing up to defend his older brother from being assaulted by the police officers.

No drugs or weapons were found in their possession, yet they were jailed for 2 days and now face felony charges of aggravated assault against a police officer. They go to trial on February 10, 2014.

Side Note: Lt. Kacsuta is the same officer currently under investigation for making derogatory remarks towards subordinate staff, so we can only imagine what she's saying to these young black men.

There's more to be said, so we will return to this after I've done more reporting.
