Glen Cove NY Police Ignore Property Rights, Employ Thuggery [Video]

This content was shared via CopBlock.org/Submit by Rocco Iannacchino about an incident caused by Glen Cove, NY police employees Griggs, Michaelaes, Maceli, Paolilo on March 13, 2014.

After speaking with the police employees at length through his screen door, Iannacchino closed the door and went to his backyard, where he was roughly tackled. Clearly he was not a threat. And clearly the police employees had no right to be on his property and treat him in such a manner or else they would have tried to snatch him up when they were on the front stoop.

In addition to that thuggery and blatent disregard for property rights, Iannacchino was said by a stranger who billed themselves as an “expert” to be “mentally ill”, something that is equally pernicious. For more on this angle, see the work of Thomas Szasz, specifically the book The Myth of Mental Illness. [In the past CopBlock.org held a contest that sought to link the perspective of Szasz with the targeting of police employees who spoke out against corruption.]

_____________

Four police officers came to my door. They said they wanted me to step outside and talk to them. I asked them if I was being arrested, they said, ‘no,’ that they wanted to ask me some questions, “get my side of the story.” I said that talking through my screen door was acceptable, and I would answer any questions they had. They insisted I step outside and discuss this, as I wasn’t “being arrested.”

After about 20-minutes of this back and forth banter, after telling them to leave many, many times, I shut the door figuring they would leave. I went out my back door on my property, and was surprised by an officer running, yelling, holding his hand to his gun, “Get down on the ground.” I did what the officer said and was kneed in the head and pinned with my arm by three policeman. The fourth policeman was keeping my father away from the takedown, I’m assuming so he couldn’t see the brutality.

My father is 82 years old, and on a few occasions, these officers tried to lure my father from my front door, as I protested this wanting my father to stay with me.

On the ground, I had the full force of three men pressing me into the mud, and could not catch my breath. I thought they were going to kill me. I felt the searing heat of a needle being jabbed into me. I squealed due to the pain.

I have the whole event on video tape and the false arrest I have audio as the video camera was knocked from my hands. What are the laws of asking police officers to leave your property if you are not being arrested? I showed them I had no weapons. Once I had been in handcuffs I was searched and had no weapons or anything illegal. They brutally took me down on the ground and hurt my left shoulder that needed medical treatment and a scar on my right wrist of a deep puncture wound.

For two months I had to receive rehab for my shoulder and I still have a scar from a puncture wound on my wrist. The police who admitted on video that I was fine gave me a beating, then brought me to the hospital and forced me to take dangerous mind altering medication that was never needed. I then spent eight days in a hospital for an illness I did not have.

In essence, this is a case of the police and the hospital creating a ‘mental illness’ by proxy. Psychiatric confinement of sane people is a particularly pernicious form of repression.

I am publicly asking that an investigation into my allegations be investigated.
