Hold NYPD Accountable for Brooklyn Physician

Greetings, A Brooklyn, NY Physician, lucky enough to have immigrated to USA at age 8 from the Arab Middle East. Assaulted by an older man in community who lied and had connections to NYPD. As a result,  I was abused and violated by NYPD several times. It took 14+ months to have all charges withdrawn by the Brooklyn ADA with the help of the Honorable Eric Gonzalez, Brooklyn District Attorney. The NYC Comptroller's Office was served with multiple Notices of Intent to sue in civil court, 4 of which were acknowledged and accepted, 1 was fully ignored. This very likely caused the Prosecution to drag on the case for so long, never once ready to proceed with trial. Naturally, proceeding with the actual civil claims vs NYPD would have been ill advised unless my name was first cleared. Finally, I was fully exonerated after many ADA requests for adjournments and a violation of my right to a speedy trial. Unfortunately, this occurred only after I was stabbed  by the man who initiated this legal mess in 10/14/2017. He was arrested minutes after his 2nd assault, and I was directed by the 62nd PCT to drop by to have photographic documentation of my numerous penetrating injuries and lacerations. On 8/31/2018, as I was speaking to the officers that earlier aided me and arrested the man who stabbed me, an officer I'd never before met, loudly and aggressively instigated an incident that resulted in 14 officers heartlessly assailing my already injured body. I have audio recorded from the profane verbal assault and command to exit the precinct (legal to record audio in precinct, but not video). Also in my possession is  clear video and audio evidence of the officers, including the ones who had arrested the man who stabbed me, cuffing me in precinct, and hoisting me above their heads. They proceeded to take me outside, where I was slammed from 6 feet onto the hard concrete, face first. At this point, my left eye was brutally kicked with steel toe boots, fracturing my eye socket. The evidence unequivocally shows 14 uniformed officers stomp, kick, knee, punch, tase, verbally hurl racial and sexual slurs at me. One "fine officer" recommends, " Just choke him out, he's too strong." They tried but failed to do so. This ordeal lasted 6 minutes 32 seconds, and I haven't bothered counting the number of blows that rained upon me. I was falsely arrested, and I can be heard screaming, why did you do this, "what probable cause?" I struggled but managed to clearly speak,  with mucous and blood in my mouth, nose, and sinuses. No answer from the cops who committed an assault so brutal, 3rd time, that the stabbing paled in severity. Nevertheless, I was arrested and charged with poorly thought out charges, such as "trespassing in my PCT," "making loud noise (as I screamed in protest of being beaten nearly into unconsciousness); "Resisting arrest," which was a clear lie, since I allowed the marauding officer to cuff me and with the aid of his accomplices, forcefully take me out of the precinct. Thankfully, the Honorable Judge vociferously criticized the ADA's inability to move to trial in a 14 month period. Finally, all charges from the first 4 arrests were dismissed by the Judge. Sternly, the very Honorable Judge, warned the prosecution sternly, "to either produce some witnesses and evidence," or withdraw charges. With reservation, he granted one last adjournment. At the next court appearance, the prosecutor quickly withdrew all remaining charges against me, and I was exonerated. This meant that my Physician Licensure would be safe from permanent revocation. At this stage, I submitted another Notice of Intent to Sue due to the thrashing and clear civil rights violations and violation of due process, stemming from 8/31/2018. The Comptroller's office initially accepted my claim as valid and informed me via USPS Certified mail. Five days later, I received a "Letter of Disallowance" for the same claim. The Comptroller's Office stated that the 30 day period allowed for serving the notice had elapsed. Further stated was that the preceding l acceptance of my claim was errant. I tried several times via certified USPS mail to explain the legal basis of my request to extend any of the time constraints that were alleged to have elapsed. I was ignored twice, until finally serving the same formal request plus copies of all my past claim receipts via Certified USPS Mail, with a signature of receipt and a guarantee of delivery. Now, the Comptroller's Office responded, addressing only the last claim, and answering in the same, unsatisfactory manner as before, never providing a true legal explanation. Further, they fully failed to address the earlier cases, explicitly enumerated in my letter. In that letter, I included contact information for FBI Agents in Criminal Division, who had taken a formal statement in person, lasting nearly 4 hours, and numerous telephone calls. I also made it clear that in the spirit of Justice, I would be seeking remedy in Federal Court, if I could not simply be heard in my day of court. Today, I remain unemployed due to a documented and likely permanent neurologic injury resulting from the very first arrest on 10/14/17 (complete loss of sensation in both arms, hands, and shoulders). I also have numerous fractured bones in my hands, which were stomped on by the 62ND PCT in August 2018. My civil rights have been violated several times, as well as the right of due process, and speedy trial rights. I will never be intimidated and ignored into quiet passivity. I would be a traitor to my fellow Americans, specifically my fellow  New Yorkers. Finally, I wish to sincerely thank the many fine people who supported my campaign for justice, whether it was by signing this petition or providing free legal assistance. I will not let you down. This change.org petition will be shared NYC Mayor, NYC Comptroller, NYS Senator Gounardes,  and NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. The first  several pages of signatures will be attached.

Petition to Greg Abbott, Greg Abbott, Texas Board of Pardons and Parole, State of Texas

Rodney Reed is innocent. Exonerate, don't execute!

Dear Governor Greg Abbott: 1. Rodney Reed is innocent. 2. The State relied on expert testimony to convict Rodney Reed that has since been recanted BY THE EXPERTS who put forth the testimony. Three renown medical examiners have concluded it is "medically impossible" for Stacey Stites to have been killed at the time the state says she died. This alone exonerates Rodney Reed. Reed was convicted based on forensic expert testimony that has now been recanted by the scientists and agencies that offered the evidence on behalf of the State. In fact, leading forensic pathologists have concluded that it would be "medically and scientifically impossible" for Reed to have murdered Stites. This new forensic evidence (which the State hasn't contradicted) indicates that Stites was murdered at a time that her fiance, local police officer Jimmy Fennell, testified that he was alone with Stites in their apartment. Fennell recently completed a ten-year prison sentence after he plead guilty to felony charges arising out of the kidnapping and sexual assault of a women he encountered while on patrol as a Georgetown, Texas police officer. Rodney Reed is innocent and should be exonerated, not executed. 3. We hate to say it, but, Rodney Reed is the victim of racism and was framed for a crime he didn't commit. 4. ALL OF THE EVIDENCE implicates *somebody else* was the real killer. And that somebody else failed two polygraph exams about his role in the murder, and he has continued to be a violent offender and assaulted others in the same way - kidnapping, sexual assault and choking with a belt. 5. Rodney Reed, and the Reed family, have suffered enough. 6. Sometimes our court system makes mistakes, and this case is a prime example of those injustices of what happens when the system fails. 7. Due to these mistakes, there's been no justice for the victim, Stacey Stites, and the real killer has continued to be a serial violent offender. 8. We need you to hear us, review this case, and find it in your heart to do what's right. 9. You promised Texas wouldn't ever kill an innocent person. You're the only person who can keep this promise by stopping the execution of Rodney Reed. 10. If prosecutors followed the evidence, and the evidence only, Rodney Reed wouldn't even be a suspect in this case, let alone become indicted. There's absolutely no evidence that indicts Rodney Reed. Please exonerate Rodney Reed.
