Vineland, NJ — Phillip White, of Cumberland County NJ, died yesterday in custody after being beaten in the street by two Vineland police officers.
Police were arresting White at a home on the 100 block of Grape Street when witnesses say the officers proceeded to beat him brutally after he was already restrained and on the ground.
One of the officers is heard on the dispatch recording saying “Subject under…tried to disarm me.” However, eyewitness Agustin Ayala paints a different story, saying he saw the officers handcuff White and take him to the ground.
Ricardo Garcia, another eyewitness, is outraged. “The guy was out cold,” stated Garcia. “They punched him, stomped him, kicked him and then they let the dog out of the car .....
If true, this is premeditated murder.
If true, what's behind this police behavior? Is it steroids, psychological problems, defective training, MK-Ultra style conditioning? What is the major malfunction here???
