Fouad Kaady Was Murdered-a reminder

Another month goes by, without justice for Fouad Kaady, who was murdered by a Clackamas County Deputy (David Willard), and a Sandy Police Officer (William Bergin).
For those who do not know the story, you would do well to download and view the complete story, skillfully filmed by Catwoman and others, here at PDX Indy,
"28 Seconds, The Killing of Fouad Kaady" which has now had nearly fifty five thousand viewings on You Tube, in five segments at the following links:

A better option is to view the actual film at one of the local Indy venues, or pick up a copy of the DVD. If you are fortunate enough to have a copy, share, make a couple of copies, and drop them around town. Everyone needs to know the story of how Fouad was murdered by agents of the fascist state, who we are constantly told are there to protect and to serve us. Listen up, cops: STOP PROTECTING AND SERVING ME.

On September 8, 2005, 27 year old Fouad Kaady was involved in several wrecks, described by police as hit and run incidents. Investigation reveals that he was probably on fire at the time, so he might be forgiven for failure to stop and render aid. He was transporting gasoline in his father's vehicle, in an attempt to bring fuel to his own vehicle which was out of gas. At some point, apparently the gasoline burst into flames.

Fouad was first observed, driving erratically (go figure) , and appeared to be waving his arms wildly. The car appeared to be cloudy inside, possibly from smoke. After striking a couple of vehicles (no injuries), he ran his father's car off of the road, and bailed out, shedding his remaining clothes which were on fire. He was pretty likely in shock, and a great deal of pain (police described him as very badly burned, skin hanging from his body, and bleeding.) He ran into the woods.

Enter the first responders: Fire department and EMTs were first on the scene, which was soon saturated with police. Two intrepid officers (Clackamas County Deputy David Willard, and Sandy Police Officer William Bergin) were first to locate the victim who was (in the officer's words) "seated Indian style alongside the road, rocking back and forth, moaning, and catatonic." The officers both stated that they knew immediately that the naked man was unarmed, but for some reason began shouting unreasonable orders (to lay his burned body on the hot pavement), and when they were not obeyed, began discharging both of their tasers into the victim. When this senseless response to an obviously injured and in shock victim failed to immediately achieve the desired results (results which neither officer could articulate), the victim fled the pain. He jumped up to the top of the police cruiser, which in Oregon is apparently a capital offense. At this time, because neither officer was willing to touch his bloody body, they chose instead, to exterminated him.

This obvious miscarriage of any form of justice was given sanction by the District Attorney, who could not seem to find an indictment to save his career. Then, the Sheriff even went so far as to state that good police guidelines were followed, and no policies were violated.

Most thinking human beings do not agree with that finding, and in fact, famed Wyoming attorney, Gerry Spence, has taken the case pro bono, and will, we are sure, obtain at least some monetary justice. Hopefully there will be extensive personal punitive damages meted out to the murderers and their superiors.

Gerry was just in town, working with Eldon Rosenthal, on behalf of Brandon Mayfield, to overturn a large portion of the "Patriot" Act. Let us hope for at least as great success on behalf of Fouad and his bereaved family.

Unacceptable Behavior 07.Oct.2007 20:44

Joe Anybody

I watched these videos and its maddening how this all happened and even worse how it was allowed to play out with the terrible abuse by the police by the two officers who arrived and should of helped the man, not tortured and kill him.

This shocking police killing needs to be understood and then acted upon
Allowing/tolerating/accepting this type of police policy is deplorable
People need to watch these 5 videos of Fouad Kaady and know the facts
- see what happened
- and start asking questions
- demand accountability and justice
- demand a higher level of competence and behavior

This is not acceptable
WTF

The Motive Was Bribery 08.Oct.2007 00:57

Ayers

Can someone locate an article about what actually happened to Fouad Kaady before the police arrived? I recall he was in an accident with a woman who was apparently at fault. A male relative of the woman showed up at the scene and followed Fouad into the woods. The male relative had blood on his hands when police arrived. That's when the police killed Kaady.

The story that Fouad was in several hit and run accidents isn't true. He was the victim of an accident. He was murdered to protect the person that caused the accident.

Candidates for Oregon Attorney General are loyal to rogue cops not the public 11.Oct.2007 13:28

Jerry Atlansky js@atlansky.com

Please Google: Blue Oregon (web site) to see todays new Prof. John Kroger vs. Sen. Greg Macpherson race for Oregon's next Attorney General. PROF. KROGER WILL NOT DISCUSS POLICE BRUTALITY WITH US. PLEASE ASK HIM WHY? On October 10, 2007 I met with State Senator Greg Macpherson for the first time. There will be no other meetings with him as he will not support our efforts of stopping out of control cops of brutality and killings of the public & loss of about $100 million of your tax money each year. Both Macpherson and Professor John Kroger as he will not meet with us, are not worthy of any public office so PLEASE vote for a write in, any name if no other candidates emerge for attorney general in the 2008 election in May. UPDATED LETTER TO ALL OREGONIANS Wednesday-October 10, 2007 Jerry Atlansky-Chairperson Oregon State Police- Independent Citizens Review Board Portland, Oregon Honorable Senator Ben Westlund Oregon State Senate State Capitol Building Room S-318 Salem, Oregon 97301 Subject: Truly reforming law enforcement This is our sincere request to obtain your support to truly reform law enforcement. With your desire to become the next Oregon State Treasurer we ask for your cooperation to read the following material and decide if you are for the changes we are suggesting to make policing more civil which is a dire challenge? Please call me to set up a meeting direct with you so we can address this very important matter. We will include our support or non-support of you to hundreds of Oregonians each day to the following data after we receive direct information from all people that desire to be the next Treasurer of the great state of Oregon. Future success for Treasurer! Jerry Atlansky js@atlansky.com 24/366 UPDATE: Governor Kulongoski will hire the next Attorney General with anyone that will NOT protect the public from out of control cops. With Attorney General Myer's resignation, "why would the governor leave these matters for the public to elect the next Attorney General?" Myers term expires Jan. 2009 the governor will hire his replacement Jan. 2008. "We The Government, For The Government, it's broken we must fix it." Jerry Atlansky Please read the following data which is a condensed view of our organizations work to bring civility to policing, by starting at the heart of most illegal use of excessive force by the hands of out of control law enforcement officers as witnessed by other officers. Will you support our efforts by contacting the superiors of the 6 top law enforcement officials named in this report to require them to comply to our requests of three steps to save physical/mental brutality, lethal force by rogue cops against in many cases completely innocent people? 1. Amend the Police "Code of Conduct" policy/procedures to include: (A) Law enforcement supervisors and line officers are required to intervene when an officer uses excessive force. (B) when officers are repeatedly beating/kicking a restrained person supervisors and line officers must stop the excessive force and arrest the offending officers. (C) If a person is not attacking anyone the FBI state that if officers use lethal force against a person that is unjustifiable homicide. 2. Train/re-train specific step by step , minimum to maximum force to the highest use of force in attempts to deescalate violence when time and situations permit officers to apply them. 3. Work with our organization to improve on the trust the public has for law enforcement by monitoring, offering other alternatives to methods and equipment to lessen stress and risk situations. Jerry Atlansky-Chairperson Oregon State Police- Independent Citizens Review Board Portland, Oregon Last Subject: Randall Edwards-Oregon State Treasurer refuses to take any action to save lives and millions of $ each year. United States Law Enforcement is two major steps towards a "Secret Police State!" On July 24, 2007 Oregon Treasury Division responded to our Letter To All Oregonians with Randall Edwards full response, below is our reply to his response and two months later Mr. Edwards failed to take any action to save lives every year and many millions of dollars. Our final determination is Mr. Edwards is derelict of his duties to save money of the states funds whenever possible which would also make the law enforcement bureaus more effective and help stop the rogue cops illegal actions. Oregon Treasury wrote: Mr. Atlansky, Thank you for your email message to the State Treasurer Randall Edwards. The State Treasurer's authority and scope of duties do not extend to law enforcement at the local or the state level. It would be inappropriate for the State Treasurer to become involved in this issue. Thank you. *PLEASE read to the very end of this e-mail Many thanks! Jerry Atlansky -----Original Message----- From: Jerry and/or Susan Atlansky [mailto:js@atlansky.com] Sent: Saturday, July 07, 2007 10:23 AM To: Oregon Treasury Subject: Update: Washington County Sheriff Rob Gordon refuses to protect the public from rogue cops Saturday-July 7, 2007 Jerry Atlansky-Chairperson Oregon State Police- Independent Citizens Review Board State Treasurer Randall Edwards Oregon State Capitol Salem, Oregon Subject: United States Law Enforcement Is Two Major Steps Towards "A Police State!" Washington County Sheriff Gordon refuses to protect the public from rogue cops OPEN LETTER TO ALL OREGONIANS: In the fall of 2005 after the horrific police action against Fouad Kaady, the 27 year old man that needed medical help as he was naked, bleeding, burned,in shock, and had no weapons when he was located near the city of Sandy, Oregon a Sandy Police Officer and a Clackamas County Sheriff didn't want to get blood on them, and left a Police shotgun unsecured on top of a police vehicle. The Police tased Kaady twice and then the cops shot and killed Kaady with 7 bullets. The cops said, Kaady said I'm going to kill you, but many witnesses said they heard no threat from Kaady against anyone. Per the F.B.I. that is non-justifiable homicide as Kaady didn't attack anyone. I called the top police official in the training division of Oregon State Police and asked Lt.Fred, what must an officer do when he sees another officer repeatedly beating/kicking a restrained person? Lt. Fred said, the witnessing officer must assist in the arrest and report the incident. I said what good would that do if the victim is maimed for life or dies due to the police brutality? Not until I said I will form a citizens oversight board did Lt. Fred say, I will take two steps to make that change. Seven months later Lt. Fred's top superior, Superintendent Ruecker failed to reply to our letters and telephone calls to verify the changes we requested to amend their policy/procedures, add new training and work with our oversight board to require all officers and their supervisors to intervene when an officer is using excessive force as it is their duty too do so. We notified all Oregon State Legislators of this non-response from Supt. Ruecker so they pressured Ruecker's superior which forced Ruecker to send us their code of conduct and a cover letter admitting that Ruecker had setup no specific data that we requested of changes to protect all Oregonians from police brutality. On December 1, 2006 Supt. Ruecker resigned as he said for the betterment of members, his family and Oregonians. Lt. Fred also resigned in 2006 as he was pressured too do so. On March 12, 2007 Supt. Ruecker's replacement, Acting Supt. McLain said in answer to my question as we secured on video/audio tape at his senate hearing was, the person should file a complaint. If that was his family member getting beaten would that be his same answer? Sheriff Roberts of Clackamas County, their top cop failed to respond to our registered letter for 6 months asking the same question so we contacted all the Clackamas County Commissioners and they required Roberts to respond to us. A repeat of NO changes in their policy/procedures, training and they will not work with our oversight board to protect all Oregonians from police brutality. On July 4, 2006 we sent a registered letter to the Police Chief, Skelton of Sandy, Oregon again asking for the same documents; policy/procedure, training and reporting to our oversight board as stated above and without any surprise to us NO response from the the police chief. > On Feb. 20, 2007 I asked Portland Police Chief Sizer at a public meeting,Chief's Forum the same question, what would you do if you saw one of your officers repeatedly beating/kicking a restrained person? Chief Sizer said, I answered that question, which I replied that is a false statement! We received another video/audio tape that proves our allegation that Chief failed to respond to our police brutality question. We sent a registered letter to Chief Sizer to give her another chance to answer our dire question and she failed again to respond as we received NO letter or telephone call on this matter from her. On June 18, 2007 Washington County Sheriff Rob Gordon replied to our, Open Letter To All Oregonians that he respects all the five top cops we named even though he doesn't know any of them, current policy/procedures are working just fine, training in place is extensive and well thought out, and police oversight boards are too political to do an effective job. Sheriff Gordon failed to address our three steps to reform law enforcement until we asked him direct questions and amazing as it may seem he was the first of all the top cops we have highlighted that states, his supervisors, deputies and himself would intervene if an officer is repeatedly beating/kicking a restrained person. Will Sheriff Gordon amend his Code of Conduct policy/procedures, add new training and work with our oversight board, not in this lifetime.....he talks the talk but refuses to walk the walk. Since the Nixon White house we have had a meltdown in personal integrity. All 6 top cops were made aware they are in violation of their sworn oaths of office, and many violations of Oregon State and United States Constitution Laws and that this data has been given to federal agencies as our very top state officials, the governor & the attorney General condone the 6 top cops wrong, illegal actions/inactions. The attorney general was pressured to author a new bill, Senate Bill 111, "Police Excessive Force" but refused to even consider our formal 3 amendments to the senate bill to protect all Oregonians as stated above to all the 6 top cops of Oregon. The amendments we are requesting to the Code of Conduct should read: 1. Law Enforcement supervisors and line officers are required to intervene when an officer uses excessive force as it is their duty. 2. When officers are repeatedly beating/kicking a restrained person supervisors and line officers must stop the excessive force and arrest the offending officers. 3. If a person is not attacking anyone the F.B.I. state that if lethal force is used against a person that is unjustifiable homicide. Without specific policy/procedures we will continue with police reports final determinations on excessive force use as, "No Department Police/Procedures violated." WE THE PEOPLE, are convinced that from the very top Oregon State Officials, Governor Kulongoski, Attorney General Myers, former and current O.S.P Superintendent's Ruecker & McLain, Sheriff Roberts Clackamas County, Portland Police Chief Sizer, Police Chief Skelton City of Sandy and Sheriff Gordon Washington County not only refuse to protect all Oregonians from Rogue Cops, they don't care about the people that were killed in unjustifiable homicides by out of control cops which stole about 130 years away from Rubio, Kaady & Chasse men & shattered their families and friends lives. In the last 10 months these 3 cases were filed in the federal courts of Oregon and are expected to exceed over $100 million which will drain the funds to operate effective law enforcement agencies. The contempt for law and the contempt for the human consequence of lawbreaking go from the bottom to the top of American society. Margaret Mead State Treasurer Mr. Edwards, will you please assist us to help stop the over 150 years of "Police Code of Silence & Testilying?" What happens in Oregon goes Nationwide. Jerry Atlansky js@atlansky.com 24/366 Randall Edwards-State Treasurer Oregon State Salem, Oregon Dear Mr. Edwards, We thank you for responding to our letter to all Oregonians giving many facts that 6 top cops in Oregon refuse to protect the public from rogue cops when other officers are witnessing unjustifiable brutality and lethal force.

We are not asking you to fire anyone, demote anyone nor force anyone to take action, what we are asking is if you care about the safety of all Oregonians and their tax money it is your duty to advise the superiors of all 6 top cops to honor their oaths of office as they are making over $600 thousand dollars a year and breaking the civil rights of our citizens.
