Jordan Miles, the Pittsburgh teen violinist who was brutally beaten by police in January, has filed a federal lawsuit saying three white Pittsburgh police officers wrongfully beat him, then conspired to file false charges against him and concocted a cover story for their actions.
An 18-year-old Pittsburgh teen that was violently beaten by police with his dreadlocks ripped out is filing a lawsuit against his attackers.
Jordan Miles and his family have decided to file a federal lawsuit against the three white Pittsburgh police officers that he says beat him and conspired to file false charges against him after concocting a story to cover-up their actions.
As previously reported, the teen violinist says he was walking to his grandmother's house when he was approached by three plains clothes officers saying,
“Where's the money?” “Where's the gun? Where's the drugs?”
Fearing for his safety, Miles ran away and says when police caught up with him they beat him and ripped his hair from his scalp.
According to the lawsuit filed Monday, Miles says he had his face pushed into the snow and his gums impaled on a piece of wood, as officers kicked and punched him Jan. 12, a day after his 18th birthday.
He also says that he thought he was being kidnapped and in fear began reciting “The Lord's Prayer” prompting police to choke him and slam his face into the snowy ground.
Police charged Miles with loitering and prowling, aggravated assault and resisting arrest, claiming he acted suspiciously then fought with them after they clearly identified themselves as officers but Miles denies those claims.
A city judge dropped the charges against Miles in March.
He is seeking unspecified damages against the officers.
Do you think he will win his civil case? How much do you think they should have to pay him?

On why she does charity work: “I’ve always felt that you should give because it’s what you can do to help. You don’t do it to get praised. For a long time, being quiet about what I did was a conscious decision. When you look around at all that’s wrong in the world, the need to do something, no matter how big or how small, is clear.”
On what motivates her: “Sisterhood means everything to me. All the charities I’m involved with are special, but I find any organization that focuses on women and children really motivating. GEMS and the young ladies the nonprofit helps are very close to my heart. And what I took away from the clients at Phoenix House changed my life. These were real people who touched me so much that I had to go beyond making a donation. They’re gaining skills at the Cosmetology Center, which will help them earn a living and find their way out of substance abuse—it’s a testament to the possibility of second chances.”
On how anyone can make a difference: “Think about what truly touches you and motivates you to help, then start locally. Once it’s in your heart to give, you’ll have to follow through. I am a happy woman—very happy—because I know that I’ve worked hard, and I love being able to give back.”
In other BeyBey news, an Icelandic company named E-label says the singer straight ganked their leggings design for her House of Dereon label:
“This is naturally huge and I am still half in shock. I didn’t twig straight away that this was her own label: I just thought she was wearing our leggings. It is practically just copy/paste,” says Heba Hallgrimsdottir, one of the owners of E-label.
You can see the leggings in question among the promo shots for the Dereon Autumn Collection.
The E-label leggings were designed by Asgrimur Mar Fridriksson and are black, studded with metal spikes on the front. Frettabladid reported last November that Beyonce had bought exactly that pair of leggings from the E-label brand at a branch of Topshop in London.
Asked whether E-label will attempt to sue, Heba said she could not answer that question as things stand right now.
“I have only just heard about this and no decision has yet been taken. We need to inspect her brand’s trousers closer because, according to law, it is not copied if a certain number of things have been changed from the original design,” Heba said.
She added that Beyonce’s E-label leggings were bought from the Edit section of Topshop, which sell designs from little-known labels.
When asked, Heba said that E-label has not copyrighted its design, but believes that widespread media coverage of Beyonce’s purchase last November, both in Iceland and overseas, would be evidence enough to prove plagiarism – if E-label eventually decides that the new design was indeed copied from their own.
“But if people want to buy the original leggings, they can pop in to us on Laugavegur 27,” she added with a laugh.
SMH… Sounds like BeyBey needs some help in the creative department!
