Event description

Description

In 40 seconds on September 23, 2014 a tax-paying, employed, voting, educated, thoughtful citizen of Hunterdon County had her life altered as police brutality and excessive force became acceptable in her neighborhood; when police misconduct became acceptable as Civil Rights were tossed aside, and civility itself was forgotten.

4 years following this event, on September 23, 2018 we are meeting to support and encourage all that our neighborhoods, town, counties, states and country seem to have forgotten: Civil Discourse, Civil Actions, Common Decency, Official Conduct, & Civil Rights.

We, "United for Civil Rights", are committed to appropriate and civil behavior of all. We, "United for Civil Rights", and committed to supporting and upholding Civil Rights and decency in our neighborhoods.

Join us for our "Coffee for Civil Rights" gatherings twice weekly where we will share what Civil Rights means to us, and how we can ensure they are honored in our neighborhoods.

All funds gathered through this site, and in regards to "United for Civil Rights", are used to fund efforts supporting Civil Rights. When you join us at a "Coffee for Civil Rights" gathering, you will receive the Public Notice of funds given and where they were paid.

Our current case we are funding is the one listed above.

For more information about this, please attend one of our "Coffee for Civil Rights" gatherings or inquire at apellemedia@gmail.com

A woman was brutally arrested and a given a humiliating strip search because police thought she was being disrespectful. On Sept. 23, 2014, a traffic stop was captured by a police vehicle’s dash cam. The recording shows police smashing the woman’s car window with his baton and then later mocking her for knowing her civil rights.

In the video, the officer explains that he smashed the window because she hadn’t rolled it down far enough. The trooper smashes the window just 40 seconds after he first approaches her car to speak to her. This incident instantaneously escalated from a simple traffic stop into an illegal and manifestly outrageous brutalization of an innocent driver.

After her arrest, the driver was handcuffed to a bench at the police station for hours without a restroom break, or water with her bound hands bleeding from the cuts by the broken window. After 7 hours of that, she was transported and booked at the county jail, subjected to a strip search and paraded around in an orange prison jump suit even though she was released just following that. This conduct from those in power positions, including unnecessary strip searches is psychological and sexual abuse and a calculated attempt to demean, degrade, humiliate and terrify.

Even the jail workers were confused and surprised at why such extreme measures were being used under the circumstances and they questioned the necessity of a full strip search in response to a motor vehicle infraction.

Do you question it?

The driver was charged with resisting arrest, hindering apprehension and obstructing the administration of law. The county prosecutor, however, declined to take the case before a grand jury and sent the case down to Municipal Court.
