Injustice Experienced By Ernest LeBeau In Rhode Island
Ernest LeBeau Asserts Robbery, Abuse And Disrespect By Those In Authority
On 2-7-98 Ernest LeBeau was picked up by the
West Warwick police after being stopped walking home at night. He was taken to the
ACI and locked up for the weekend because the public defender had failed to remove
warrants from charges dating back to 1996.
Mr. LeBeau alleges approximately $30 was taken
from his wallet by the West Warwick police prior to Mr. LeBeau being taken to the ACI.
Caught.net note:We have received 2
direct complaints and one indirect complaint (1998-2000) in addition to Mr. LeBeau's alleging the West
Warwick police stopped Citizens walking at night, requested identification and emptied
wallets of cash in the process. The Citizen is handed back his wallet and told to
move on.Every report has been involving Citizens who have been drinking and walking home
from a local pub.Affected Citizens have expressed fear to act because they live in
and walk the streets of West Warwick.
Mr. LeBeau had not only served his time, but
had completed twice the amount of counseling required. Mr. LeBeau also experienced
the ACI's forced injection ritual and repeated strip
Mr. LeBeau, understandably irate over the
incorrect outstanding warrant, received a beating in a side room from ACI guards to
"show him who was boss." The manner of this beating made clear the routine
nature of the beating with every officer knowing their place and their role in the
beating. Mr. LeBeau received injuries to his ribs from kicks inflicted while he was
on the floor.
Caught.net note:part of the admissions procedure at the ACI at that time was to tell you that you were about to be injected. If you refused, looked apprehensive or simply asked what the injection was for, ACI staff immediately pounced on you and took pleasure in doing so.
Mr. Lebeau came before the Court the following
Monday. Despite the Court's knowledge of Mr. LeBeau's civil rights violation, Mr.
LeBeau was forced to wait with the court calling his case last so the
courtroom would be empty. Mr. LeBeau was released with an apology from Judge Michael Higgins.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Many times the reason or purpose for events in our life initially escapes us,
but I am certain we can find reason and/or purpose in everything that happens!
It takes a short time to learn to exercise power, but a lifetime to learn how to avoid abusing it.
We are no longer a country of laws, we are a country where laws are "creatively interpreted."
