Rocky Ford, CO – Shades Of Ferguson

Last Sunday, James Ashby killed 27-year old Jack Jacquez in Jacquez’s home. No one knows why Ashby came to Jack’s house. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Rocky Ford Police Department have remained silent. That might be due to James Ashby being a police officer.

Jack Vasquez

Jack Jacquez

Jack’s family and friends say that he was shot in the back, but even that news did not come from the police but rather, from workers at the hospital where Jack was taken.

About 200 people got together in the small town of Rocky Ford, Colorado to protest, marching to the police station to get answers. Authorities aren’t talking to them. They are not even telling them what they are doing – but James Ashby is on paid vacation.

 

The protests pattern those in Ferguson. Yes, the nation and the world have embraced the reality that what happened to Michael Brown was wrong. “Hands up. Don’t Shoot” is being repeated in Rocky Ford, CO, and even Hong Kong, because of Michael Brown.  Now, it is no longer Blacks who are marching while chanting “No Justice. No Peace.” People of every color are fed up that cops can kill, go on paid vacation, and authorities are silent, adding to the trauma and grief of victims’ families, friends, their communities – our nation.

People of all walks of life are coming together, but sadly it is because of death by cop.

The following video is the news report.

  3. You can bet there will be those who will support the police, Jack’s FB page shows he used marijuana and because he isn’t ‘White White’.. As if that matters.

    It shouldn’t matter. Marijuana doesn’t make folks violent. His family says the officer forced his way into the house, the hospital says Jacks was shot twice in the back. The family says they were pepper sprayed. Another officer given a paid vacation for having killed someone. This sh*t has got to stop. ( I wonder if the officer has a gofundme page yet)

We had a case here in my little town where a woman slept in her car after the ‘bar closed down’ and for some reason just before daybreak walked across the street to a police sub station, approached 2 officers getting off their night shift and yelled something to them.

        They immediately shot her dead, saying they thought she had a gun in her hand. Not another word was ever reported on this incident. The only family she had lived up north and didn’t pursue the details of her death. She had made FB posts through out the night about how great life was and what a good time she was having. Nothing seemed amiss. No one knew she even owned a gun, and most folks think she may have been approaching the officers to report a crime..

    May have been shared before, our friends @ Leatherman posted. Police brutality is a respecter of none.

    As Xena wrote; “Hands up. Don’t Shoot” is being repeated in Rocky Ford, CO, and even Hong Kong, because of Michael Brown. I hope the citizens of Rocky Ford press on to get at the heart of this senseless shooting.

    btw: John Burris, defense attorney (handled civil suits; Oscar Grant/Rodney King) disagrees with leaked info in Mike Brown’s case that not enough evidence for civil rights charges.
    per interview News Nation w/Tamarin Hall this a.m. Again, as Xena states (I agree) the leaks are propaganda.

The “leaked” information gives Wilson’s story, but his story doesn’t explain why he got his butt out and fired at Michael, then shot and continued doing so until he blew Mike’s brains out. The “leaked” info is using the George Zimmerman playbook which essentially says “He hit me first so I pursued to get even, but it was in self-defense.”

        • Wilson getting out and firing at Brown is almost like Duuhhnnn getting out and firing at a red SUV.

          The threat was gone and even if a cop is allowed by law to shoot, it’s only when the suspect is an immediate danger or a known / escaped felon. Wilson cannot claim he was still firing to “keep their heads down and prevent return fire.”

          Wilson did not know about any alleged or real robberies and since none happened, lets keep it real and rule that out. Not only that, since when is it approved to shoot to kill someone who “stole” a few cigars ?? Never…..that’s when……never.

          In NJ he’d have been arrested within 24 hours.

              The 9 hour time difference could be that they never set the time on their blog. There’s lots of pre-launch work that goes into Word Press if the blogger wants the blog to work well. The time set here on Blackbutterfly7 is CST. But, if that person’s Twitter also has a 9 hour time difference, they could be in another country, or even a small, undiscovered moon. LOL!

  10. I was going to post on this separately, but changed my mind. Ted Wafer is appealing his conviction. I can read the beginning of the brief now;
    “Appellant should not have been convicted because he feared for his life and the person he murdered was drunk.”

    Yeah — that should get his conviction overturned. (snark) The jury just didn’t see how AFRAID he was in his own house with the door locked before he opened it.

      • Mothman,
        Right. Appealing criminal convictions seems to be standard procedure. Unless the reviewing court finds something wrong with jury instructions, or that a judge sustained or overruled an objection that would the jury should have heard, it’s pretty hard to prevail on appeal. Now, even the ineffective assistance of counsel issue is difficult to argue. So many courts decide along the lines of, “You picked him. You live with the results.”

    “Love Peace and Wisdom”

    Lyrics by Bliss

    If Love were a bird, I would stroke her bright feathers
    Then I’d watch her fly free, cross the still of the dawn

    And if Peace were a mountain, we’d gather around her
    To bathe in her silence, her power, her call

    If Wisdom could sing or whisper his secrets
    Eternity teaching the ways of the free

    In my mind I can see them, I hear them and I feel them
    For Love, Peace and Wisdom are all part of me

    If Love has her freedom, and Peace her expression,
    Surely Wisdom will grow like a flower in bloom

    The seed has been planted, and tended and watered
    By the prayers of the hopeful and the tears of the brave

    We long to return to that place of still waters
    And sit on the banks under some shady tree

    In my mind I can see it, I hear it and I feel it
    And Love, Peace and Wisdom are all that we need

    Some call me a dreamer, some will call me a seeker
    One who follows her stars on a quest for the truth

    But every believer holds a deep hidden memory
    Of a time when the earth was a flower in bloom

    We long to return to that place of still waters
    And sit on the banks under some shady tree

    In my mind I can see it, I hear it and I believe it
    And Love, Peace and Wisdom are the three golden keys

They did a lame job with the so-called “new evidence” – just as bad as typical CNN, reporting it as it’s told to them, rather than analyzing what was told to them to see whether (1) it makes sense and/or (2) actually supports Dorian Johnson’s and other witnesses’ accounts more than (or at least as much as) the murderous cop’s account.

          Anyone with a scribd account can upload to that site. What it means is that the documents can and most times are real, but it doesn’t mean that the documents are for a legit purpose. For example, a cyber-extortionist uploaded his court pleadings to scribd. After a restraining order was entered against him, he had to take them down because the content was intended to post the personal information of, and demean the other person.

          So, here’s the thing about the police reports; they are what the Ferguson police department has already said. With careful examination, you will find that there is no “victim”. The store’s owner did not call the police, nor press charges. The person who did call the cops was not a victim and lacks standing to file charges. It was the cop’s own discretion to file that report based on a custom’s call. They identified Mike Brown as the suspect after Wilson killed him.

I really don’t think the use of drugs would be relevant to the case, unless some one thinks that the use made Mike Brown some sort of super human and can prove that… I must admit that I have very little knowledge of what the various terminologies used in this report mean, but a quick web search led to a site that indicates that he did have drugs in his system. It is quite possible that I, due to lack of knowledge about the subject am reading this data wrong?

        Forgive me for not being detailed. Darren Wilson’s “spokesperson” put out a report that Wilson said Mike had to have been on drugs. That was in association with Mike purportedly bum rushing Wilson like a mad man. Actually, that type of behavior is unassociated with pot.

        On the ME report, it has a category for “THC” that “impairs” and that category for Mike is “negative.”

        In other words, the only thing that Wilson had giving him reason to continue shooting Mike until Mike’s brains were on the street, (cause he must have been on drugs</em) is not supported by the autopsy.

I suppose a little more knowledge of the answer before asking a question is in order on my part… .

            I wasn’t detailed to explain what I saw in the toxicology report. I neither have personal experience with pot, but for all the medical stuff we read during GZ’s murder trial, the consensus is that pot “mellows.” The impression from Wilson’s “spokesperson” is that Michael acted like he was on some drug that caused him to be violent, unable to feel pain, and be suicidal.

    Just read new Mike Brown autopsy. Beware passive language in govt docs, like “during the struggle the officer’s weapon was unholstered.”

    Lisa Bloom @LisaBloom ·
    Beware official statements like “The weapon discharged during the struggle.” Another way of saying that: Darren Wilson shot Mike Brown.

    Lisa Bloom @LisaBloom
    70+ days later we still don’t have OfcrWilson’s account of what happened, only hints at it from hearsay leaks. Total lack of transparency.

    Lisa Bloom @LisaBloom
    Bc officer Wilson lawyered up and did no incident report, 70+ days later it’s breaking news when an autopsy report gives bits of his story.

    Lisa Bloom @LisaBloom
    KEY: Nothing in Wilson’s story in new autopsy says he feared for his life or life of another, which is only legal justification for shooting

      Serious question: what unarmed person in the history of the United States (who wasn’t on a hallucinate) has charged at a cop with a gun?

        Exactly!

        Unfortunately, though, if you believe these cops’ stories (and I don’t), it happens all the time! That is, every time a cop – or wanna be cop – kills an unarmed citizen. What BS.

    Personally, I think that when Ofc. Wilson was sitting in his cruiser, he was aiming his gun at Michael Brown ready to shoot Michael. Michael might have grabbed at the tip of the barrel to try to move the gun direction away from his (Michael’s) body.

    That is when Darren Wilson fired his gun from inside his cruiser. That is when Michael Brown’s hand was shot and hit by a bullet and that is when Michael started running away from Ofc. Wilson.

    This is simply my speculation.

      This would explain why Michael Brown’s blood was on Ofc. Wilson’s gun.

      Dorian Johnson, in that first video (when Dorian was standing at his kitchen counter) recounted that Ofc. Wilson:

      pulled his gun out, shot inside the car trying to hit him.

        All this leaking information is consistent with Dorian Johnson’s account. Heaven forbid all the gazillions of articles coming out today make THAT their headline! SMH.

    No way was Michael Brown lunging at Ofc. Darren Wilson.

    LLMPapa captures this key statement by one of the witnesses to prove that Michael Brown was NOT lunging toward Wilson:

      Mike Brown’s blood on the gun does not prove he reached for it. Blood can travel, fingerprints can’t. Show me his fingerprints on the gun.

        At most, there would only be an open palm print as he pushed Wilson’s gun away from being aimed at him from inside the cruiser.

        I really have no doubt that Wilson had his gun out and ready to use as he back up his cruiser toward Michael and Darien.

        (Just my personal opinion as I wrote above.)
