Hello,My name is Dexter Thomas I am currently incarcerated in a Florida Prison in the Department Of Corrections. The reason for my incarceration is due to the event that took place in Lee County, Florida on November 3, 2015 at approximately 10:16p.m. Based on documents that i am able to provide, it is clear that there are many discrepencies that are freely admitted by the arresting officers and the aformentioned documents. I was approached by both officers Guillermo C. Monmany and officer Sean M. Havenner... Officer Guillermo C. Monmany jumped out of his vehicle with his gun drawn pointed towards me in an aggressive manner, which caused me to become very nervous. I then gestured and verbalized that I would like to pull over in a more well lit area for safety concerns, which were denied by the officers aggressive demands, at this time office Sean M. Havenner who stayed behind the vehicle to request for back up and had ample time to turn on his body camera and failed to do so. Sean M. Havenner then approached my vehicle with his gun drawn as well. and still failed to turn on his body camera. He then attempted to open the passenger side door of the vehicle I was in, this caused me to become even more nervous than I initially was from the beginning of the traffic stop. At this point I had not only one but two fully loaded firearms aimed at my head,as the officers were yelling and screaming at me with demands. Despite me trying to comply with their orders. I then became so nervous and in fear for my life that I put my arm up to shield from a bullet and fled. When the officers finally caught up with me I threw my hands up in the air after I heard them scream he has a gun which we all no what that means, but i screamed for my sister which whom I was on the phone with and then they backed down, they finally arrested me and did not find anything illegal on me which was what they were suppose to be looking for that night.They failed to ask for proper identification and also obstructed the vehicle which is against policy rules that both officers were knowledgeable of. In the documentation that I have that was stated by the officers that they were looking for people with drugs, guns, and warrants which i had neither of. Upon pulling me over that night they also stated that they had no recollection of who I was and were not able to recognize the vehicle that I was driving. I was a normal citizen driving that night on my way to meet my sister,yes I did run a stop sign but I feel like I shouldn't have been treated in such an aggressive manner and that these officers abused there authority. I feel that one of the main reasons they were riding together that night is because they were making illegal drug busts in the dunbar community which they are known to do. This is why they had the county and the city riding together because they are not required to use body cameras at one of the agencies which allows them to d

o as they please. Sean M. Havenner resigned that same year of my arrest. There has been several complaints made to the Fort Myers Police Department and several Lawsuits pending for Racial profiling and police misconduct.I am doing this petition to seek early release and in hopes that my story will reach the right hands to shed light on situations like mine because I am just one of many people who made it out alive to tell my story and I thank God every day for that.To go more in depth about my situation visit:
