Cincinnati. Beanbags = little bags of buckshot. Christine Jones may lose spleen.

by Buckshot today?! Tuesday, Apr. 17, 2001 at 8:21 AM

Cincinnati's Human relations director witnessed unprovoked, police-beanbag, driveby shooting of Timothy Thomas mourners Saturday April 14. Beanbags injured a black male, 50; 2 little girls, ages 7 and 11; and hospitalized a Louisville French teacher, Christine Jones, 34. "Ms. Jones was admitted to Jewish Hospital in Louisville with a fractured rib, bruised lung and spleen from two bean-bag projectiles, a hospital spokesman said Sunday. She was in good condition today. Doctors are closely monitoring the internal bleeding in her spleen; if it continues, her spleen may have to be removed." --April 16 Cincinnati Post.

Beanbags are "little bags of buckshot."

Monday, April 16 2001, Cincinnati Enquirer and Cincinnati Post, articles follow the comments, quotes, and news links.

The Associated Press photographer who witnessed the beanbag driveby of Timothy Thomas mourners Saturday says that beanbag rounds from police shotguns are "little bags of buckshot."

There are many credible witnesses to this aggravated assault, yet these police officers are unlikely to go to jail, at least not from local authorities. That is because in Cincinnati there is NO local, independent, police review board with subpoena powers.

Many police are notorious for finding new ways to hit, injure, and hospitalize people. Fists, feet, batons, high-speed batons, teargas, sleeper-death holds, compliance holds, phone books, flashlights, rubber-coated-steel bullets, plastic bullets, beanbags, etc.. Now, with beanbag shotguns, police can injure, bruise, and even hospitalize people, and they don't even really have to get out of their cars. You know, that is the problem with obese America today; almost everyone is a couch and car potato. Whatever happened to the good old days, when police would beat people directly with clubs, as when Rodney King was beaten and hospitalized, before the Los Angeles riots in 1992.

Quotes from April 16 Cincinnati Enquirer article Monday:

"Cecil Thomas, a former police officer who now leads the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission, stood at Elm and Liberty streets on Saturday afternoon after Timothy Thomas' funeral. ... He saw three Cincinnati cruisers and one Ohio State Highway Patrol car drive up. Officers and troopers jumped out, he said, fired into a small crowd that `wasn't doing anything.' They then got back into their cars and were gone in seconds. ...FBI agents quizzed witnesses too, including photographer Tom Uhlman of Camp Washington, who was on the scene working for the Associated Press. Neither Mr. Uhlman nor Mr. Thomas heard any warnings before the shots. ... Mr. Uhlman said calling the ammunition bean bags `makes them sound harmless. They're actually little bags of buckshot.' Fraternal Order of Police President Keith ['rogue Nazi'] Fangman said Sunday he did not yet know details of the incident. `Our officers fired hundreds of bean-bag rounds throughout this ordeal,' he said."

Bean-bag shooting unprovoked,

says ex-cop, now city official

-----------------------------------

Human relations director saw incident



By Jane Prendergast

The Cincinnati Enquirer

Cincinnati's human relations director Sunday joined the call for an explanation of why Cincinnati Police fired bean-bags into a crowd Saturday in what he and other witnesses called an unprovoked attack. A 37-year-old teacher was hospitalized Sunday with a cracked rib, bruised lung and bruised spleen. Two children were also hit.

Cecil Thomas, a former police officer who now leads the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission, stood at Elm and Liberty streets on Saturday afternoon after Timothy Thomas' funeral. He said he was thinking about how lucky the city was that no rioting broke out after the services for the man shot April 7 by a Cincinnati police officer.

He saw three Cincinnati cruisers and one Ohio State Highway Patrol car drive up. Officers and troopers jumped out, he said, fired into a small crowd that
