Black felon run over by cop, wife gets huge settlement,
cop gets fired; video gets released

[Scroll down to view video]

When I first heard of this video I expected to see a black male standing in the street with his hands in his pockets and blinded by the sudden appearance of a police car's bright lights. Then WHAM! The poor guy is laid out in the street in a pool of blood as shocked bystanders stare is disbelief.

Silly me.

Marlon Brown slipped and fell while literally running from a police cruiser. He had bolted from a vehicle and was making his getaway through a vegetable garden. The police cruiser, with dash cam recording, gave chase and when Brown slipped you can hear the 'thud' as the bumper apparently hit his head. Brown died from asphyxia.

Besides his wife getting a retirement-sized settlement, the pursuing officer lost his job.

Watch the cruiser's dash cam video, then decide.

If you bolt from your car and flee after leading police on a wild chase after being pulled over for a minor traffic offense, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO DO? Say, "Oh well! Guess he got away!"

Those of us who have had personal Wacos with idiot cops often find it difficult to sympathize. But there is no indication that the pursuing officer intended to touch Brown with his bumper, let alone kill him. The police were doing their job: Getting another bad guy off the street. For that they were punished!

Now take a moment and recall how many white cops have been gunned down by black males, then, to quote Leonard Pitts, Jr., "Cry me a river."

Condolences to Brown's family, but this was clearly an accident.

Why is it that every time a black male is killed by a cop, we immediately are supposed to assume the policeman -- especially if he/she is white -- is guilty of murder or, at least, manslaughter? Why does the national mainstream Marxist media ignore the epidemic of white cops being gunned down by black thugs?

As one who has had my share of personal Wacos -- including a mentally ill country bumpkin who pointed a loaded gun at my head for failing to completely stop at 3:00 a.m. when the only traffic for 30 miles was the cop himself -- I can imagine the frustration faced by convicted black felons who've been berated without mercy by police who, in turn, have had their fill of foul-mouthed, cracked-up thugs who should be behind bars rather than posing a persistent danger to society.

But my sympathies and empathies are not relative to reality.

In this case Brown fell under a police cruiser, the officer was thrown under the bus, and the mainstream Marxist media continues to ignore black-on-white cop killings.

Here's how the Ocala Post describes it:

DeLand, Florida — DeLand Police Officer James Harris was fired from his job after he accidentally ran over Marlon Robert Brown as he was fleeing from officers. FHP spokesperson Sgt. Kim Montes says 38-year old Marlon Robert Brown “failed to stop” for a Volusia County deputy who attempted to pull him over for a seat belt violation on Green Avenue at Parsons Avenue at 12:36 Monday morning. The Volusia County deputy then backed off and radioed dispatch to alert officers in DeLand that the driver was in their area.

Marlon Brown fled from his car on foot after officers tried to pull him over.  As officers were pursuing Brown, he slipped and fell in front of the officer’s patrol car, causing the officer to run over him.

Brown led multiple officers on a chase, however it was Officer James Harris that went around other officers, running Brown over with his patrol car. Officer Harris was fired for violating department policy involving a pursuit, according to officials.

Marlon Brown was a known felon in the area.

The family of Marlon Brown has hired Benjamin Crump, the no name attorney that recently made a name for himself during the Trayvon Martin case.

Benjamin Crump says the officer should have been charged with vehicular homicide. A grand Jury refused to press charges against Officer James Harris earlier this month, citing the video did not show cause for charges to be filed, because the video clearly shows Marlon Brown falling in front of the vehicle.

Crump said during a press conference, “Marlon Brown was executed in a vegetable garden.”
This case has created outrage from both sides, however many wonder how an officer is supposed to peruse felons if they are going to get fired, and then the city get sued every time an accident happens while an officer is performing his duties.

Resident Tyrece Jackson said, “The officer was doing his job, everybody knows you don’t run from the cops unless you did something wrong and have a reason to run. You don’t just run because you weren’t wearing a seat-belt.”

Marlon Brown had been arrested more than a dozen times. Brown has had 18 misdemeanor charges, five felony charges, and three felony convictions.

Brown has an array of charges such as:

Felony Possession Of a Controlled Substance
Battery (multiple)
Uttering Forged Checks (multiple)
Grand Theft
Driving On A Suspended License (multiple)

Krystal Brown, Marlon Browns Ex-wife, received a payout of $550,000 from the city of DeLand for Marlon Browns death. The settlement releases the city from any further legal action.

Crump is now asking for further investigation to be conducted by an independent party.

Ocala Post slowed the video down and watched it frame by frame, it takes only one second after Brown slips, for the patrol car to hit him.

The medical examiners report doesn’t show any broken bones, fractures, or head injuries. The report says he died from mechanical asphyxia, which is the weight of the car keeping him from breathing. Crump is accusing the medical examiner of lying in the report.

It is still unclear as to why Marlon Brown ran from police. Brown was also under a court ordered curfew.

We want to hear from you. Do you think Officer Harris should have been fired? And do you feel he was fired as a political move to avoid further attention from the spotlight?
