Four Police Officers have been Indicted for Fatal Race-Related Beating

- By Bossip Staff

Back in 2008, Luis Eduardo Ramirez Zavala was nearly beaten to death by six people and four of them happened to be police officers. He laid in a coma on life support before dying two days later.

The indictments, handed out by a federal grand jury last week, have racked up to three and include federal hate crime charges, along with conspiracy, extortion charges, obstruction of justice and official conduct, according to authorities.

Shenandoah Police Chief Matthew Nestor, Lt. William Moyer and Officer Jason Hayes have all been charged by federal authorities with conspiring to obstruct justice.

Just because one may represent the law, it doesn’t mean that they have the power to take it as far as they can… Read the Rest of this Entry

    Wow. This makes me think of the young man in Wash DC who got hit by a policeman the other day and the cop left the scene. Everyone was there but him. The family stands to make a killing off of this one…

    If the cop gets off for this one, it’s going to send DC in a rage.

    Glad justice was done in the case of the man beating. =[

    if i’m not mistaken, this story was on Latino In America. It pi§§ed me off when the people involved involved in this MURDER didnt go to jail or got a VERY light prison sentence!! Racism in America will never end…

    just go to The Washington Post and read it for yourself bruh….it’s on the front page of the local section.

  • Rrrrroe Ski Love- A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    Thats why when stuff happens to police officers good and bad, I don’t get emotional. Police are well known for making victims out of minorities. Whenever black police officers condone this type of behavior, it just makes it worse, because white officers see that it’s ok, they do it even more. Now that the feds are involved, that town will be in financial straights for the next 20 years, because of ongoing lawsuits and the like. GOOD it serves them right.

    I pray they are found guilty and sent to prison for life only to end up being beat like they did Ramirez…

    Good! You know this Puerto Rican wasn’t nothing but a thug and a drug dealer. He deserved to get beaten, the dirty SP IC probably had 25 knives stuck to his chest.

    how 2 prepare for urban warfare?

    Prayer and humility? People this crap has been going on for a looooong while now! I have a feeling once black and brown unite these pigs are doomed, but untill then black/brown killing off eachother is help to this executive decision to have our youth in peril(says a wise man) So the next time we think of violence 2 our own think about the aide we are giving to the near extiction of a people. Sad 2 say……….But if it wasn’t for young girls given birth these dayz in comparison to the self-afflicted genocide we wouldn’t be here!!! How can you see something so beautiful in the midst of an ugly storm?
