Cop Who Assaulted Lateef Dickerson Indicted On Felony Assault

Lateef DickersonDover, Delaware – Cpl. Thomas Webster of the Dover police department has been indicted by a grand jury for felony assault after a video went viral of him kicking suspect Lateef Dickerson in the face while he was submitting and complying with police orders. The video shows Lateef putting up no struggle, and getting on his hands and knees as he was listening to police orders to get on the ground. Cpl. Webster then delivers a brutal, unprovoked kick to the face that knocks Lateef unconscious immediately and broke his jaw. Lateef was alleged to have been involved in a fight, but no injuries or other party that he could have been in a fight with appear on the tape.

While it is a small victory to hear that an officer was actually indicted after a string of officers getting off without indictment like in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases, it is still disturbing just how long and what kind of hurdles had to be overcome to get to this point. And as we are quickly learning in the case of Freddie Gray, an indictment or charges are not necessarily an indication that justice will be served or accountability achieved.

This case started in 2013, when Webster was originally placed on paid leave pending an investigation. In 2014, A grand jury on behalf of the U.S Attorney’s office refused to indict him, despite the clear-as-day evidence in the video that he was not resisting and was of absolutely no threat to either of the officers on the scene. They actually said that kicking a compliant man in the face, shattering his jaw is no human rights violation! It wasn’t until the ACLU sued the Dover Police Department, and the case was picked up by the Delaware Attorney General’s office that real justice was set in motion, 2 years after the actual event. Defense attorney’s are outraged that charges continued to be filed and that the video has been made public.

Let’s hope that this time, a police officer can be held to the same standards as the rest of us, thanks probably only to the preservation of the video account.

    I hope he gets off…officers shouldnt have to worry about being prosecuted…for doing our job right.

  • Hater

    No matter what happens that thug got kicked in Lateef but good! I hope he still feels it.

  • JC

    He is out on bond. It should be interesting to see how this turns out.

  • That beady eyed pussy is gonna love his time in the clink.

  • g2reason

    It’s his job to kick people in the face who are on their knees, with their hands behind their head?

  • g2reason

    10 bucks says he gets convicted of assault and the judge overturns the conviction.

  • Hater

    Get your facts straight. The video clearly shows his hands on the ground. Slightly in front of him. Perfect for getting kicked in Lateef!

  • CopsKill

    The MRC don’t worry about it, that’s one reason why police are the way they are.

    Never trust police

  • steve

    fuck off bitch

  • Pw4x3r

    Facts do not matter to police if it is not in their favor. That is a fact.

  • yourtimeisrunningout

    it certainly will be, he is not protected by bars anymore. somebody’s going to make a bloody example out of this fucker.

  • DeadH8t

    kind of wonder if you’re the next one that should be dealt with.

  • Larry Capponi

    jc , your mom keeps asking you to move out and get a job , also could you ask her to stop taking pictures of you

  • Common Sense

    Took me a second, +2 nice

  • Larry Capponi

    haha T you pretend to be a cop an you show their dumbfk attitudes but we really know this is the pic your mom took of you ……..oh she also asked you to move out

  • Yankeefan

    Aren’t you quite the genius with your comments. Like a troll, never comment on a topic that is dangerous. What a POS you are!

  • g2reason

    My bad.

  • Hater

    Probably. Come get some chump.

  • Buck Kracker

    Am I invited to your “Come get some chump”? I sure would like to take you up on it. Where would this “chump” find you? I do a bit of traveling.

  • bob barker

    lateef name now is no teef

  • t

    He’ll never do any real time…we get special treatment by the system…six months of probation…at the maximum…we are protected.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I wonder when your comments are going to force t to get a real Disqus account.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    what’s funny is you think people would show up face to face. that isn’t how these things are done. people disappear by the tens of thousands a year in this country. did it ever occur to you that they didn’t mean to disappear? it’s very easy to make somebody disappear, and those people never see it coming. the game of a predator is not to go head on, it is to circle and attack when the proper time is realized. in human terms, this generally involves a tranquilizing agent to subdue the target. how that agent is delivered is up to the particular predator. I would suggest before you spout off about too much, maybe try and figure out who the true predators on this site are. trust me, there are plenty of people on this site that would happily skin you alive. I’m not using that term as turn of phrase either. The hardest part about cutting up human bodies is dealing with the smell.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    you and your children drink well water I see. might be a great place to put a tranquilizer. you should be very careful what you post.

  • Hater

    You’re a delusional joke you fucking punk.

  • Hater

    Hey pussy boy, I’m in Ocala FL. Is that a big enough clue for you fuckhead?

  • Common Sense

    “game of a predator…”

    That’s pretty sad. A house plant is more a danger than you.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    exactly where in that statement did I say I was going to have anything to do with it?

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I know where you live, you don’t need to tell me.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    just remember to protect your family, keep your eyes on them at all time. it’s much more fun to cut somebody up in front of their family then to do it without them watching.

  • Hater

    Sure you do. Take your meds fuckhead.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    just remember chemicals can be used in many many ways.

  • Hater

    My petite wife could take you out. You’re a broken down joke.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    who said I was going to have anything to do with it. you don’t listen very well. good to know you’re married. I’m guessing there’s some children around you that you might not like to see cut up into 1 inch pieces and fed the dogs while they are alive. you keep giving up personal information, all it does is help those that are searching for you.

  • Hater

    Really? No! Tell me it’s not so!!

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    granulated phosphorus I find particularly interesting.

  • Hater

    Take your meds. You’re slipping.

  • Hater

    It seems to have messed you up so it must work but please, don’t let me stop you from playing with it.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    that’s not going to work very well as it come back after you say it a thousand times.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    put into somebody’s wounds it can do amazing things for somebody else’s enjoyment.

  • Hater

    I could say it a million times and it will always apply to you.

  • Hater

    Take your meds. You’re slipping.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I see you have the depth of a mud puddle. and your waters flow as swiftly as a still pond.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I never slip.

  • Hater

    How original. The fact remains you are on a litany of drugs and I am not.

  • Hater

    Yes you do. You slipped the moment you required psych drugs.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    actually the fact of the matter is, you have believed a lie. your ability to understand truth in a statement is obviously very suspect. but that’s ok your kind is easy to troll.

  • Hater

    Your delusions are deep. Maybe your shrink can help you with that.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    everything I say is premeditated. a means of pushing somebody to the ends that I want. you will be used as one of those means.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    man I can throw any bait out there and you’ll bite. shows how sad of an individual you are, you’ll take attention from people that would hate you.

  • Hater

    Yeah, okay. That would be the delusional aspect coming into play now. Don’t you have someone you can call?

  • Hater

    Take your meds. You’re slipping.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I can see you will play your part perfectly. just another puppet.

  • Hater

    You’re delusional. Take your meds.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    rattled cage? Funny shit.

  • Hater

    You need to take your meds or you’ve taken to much. You can’t seem to keep the forums you stalk seperated.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Rattle……

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    oh I was just testing a bot.

  • Hater

    Unfortunately meds can’t break your delusions. It must be a lonely life you live.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I wish it was lonely, might be peaceful then. but all these fucking bats keeps swooping at me.

  • Hater

    That makes more sense than anything you have said.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    :) only here for the laughs.

  • Jeannie Wood-Ramberg

    Probably be feeling pretty good when he gets a nice settlement check. Unfortunetly the tax payers will pay instead of it coming out of this psychos pension.

  • Jeannie Wood-Ramberg

    He probably did get off..probably went home that night and worked his tiny penis good and got off thinking about all the bullies in the schoolyard in grade school and how he’s the big man now with his badge and gun.

  • Felton Mitchell

    PUT THIS WOMAN ONE DAY BEHIND THE BARS WITH REAL MEN THATS RIGHT THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN FALSELY IMPRISONED. AND HE WILL BE CRYING FOR HIS MOMMIE.

  • Common Sense

    To be honest, I really didn’t read your entire comment, its the typical badass comment that shows up here. Did you get it out of your system? Do you feel better? Maybe you need a cookie.

  • Frank Kush

    I’m sure he will love living with real men in general population. The boys will just love him and take special care as they beat his ass.

  • keepitreal

    That’s what I hear about her. Coochie stench could kill a strong man at 10 paces. By the bitch a douche, homer.

  • Hater

    Ad hominem attacks are a true sign of a weak mind. You can’t even be creative enough to attack me. You have to go after my wife.

  • Me

    I hope someone kicks you in the face you sack of shit.
