Cop Sentenced to Prison, Forced to Pay Victim for Savagely Beating Teen on Video

Tales from the Conspiratum

It’s about time that juries start understanding that coppers are mere civil servants, not the powerful Gods they think they are. If the courts start jailing the bad coppers perhaps this police brutality trend will reverse.

Showing exactly how abusive cops should be treated, a bully cop has been sentenced 27 months in prison for savagely beating an innocent teen on video.

Pittsburgh, PA — A belligerent and violent cop was recently convicted of violating the civil rights of a teenager by savagely beating him at a high school football game. The entire incident, which looks like a giant bullying a small child, was captured on video and led to the initial firing of officer Stephen Matakovich, 48, and the subsequent charges.

Matakovich “was an annoyed bully who beat the crap out of a drunk kid,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Gilson told…

    I appreciate Matt Agorist’s article. Thanks for reblogging it, Xena.

    It is good that Matakovich cannot hide behind a badge anymore. I was surprised to learn that the prosecutor pointed out 56 prior uses of excessive force by him. Why wasn’t he stopped sooner? Was this the first video of proof?

    From the FreeThought article:

    In an attempt to establish the ex-cop’s history of violence, county prosecutors introduced a motion during the proceedings detailing Matakovich’s use of unnecessary force against 56 other people and another case in which he assaulted a security guard then arrested him on false charges.

    According to the prosecution and video footage, Matakovich brutalized innocent people and arrested them on false charges in order to cover up his own violent provocations. Luckily, video evidence of this cop’s rage finally put an end to his rash of belligerence.

      The auto spell check writes “reflagging” if I don’t use a hyphen in “re-blogging.”

      Would you please fix that spelling for me, Xena, in my comment above?

          Thanks Xena.

          I also just realized that blogger “Tales from” first found the article to re-blog, and so I want to point out that I also appreciate that person for finding and re-blogging it.

            I suppose understanding WordPress and reblogging isn’t easy. 🙂 Lou didn’t reblog the post. It was a “press this” function that copied and pasted an article from FreeThought. I tend to announce when I use “Press This” at the beginning of posts. It is not automatically placed there and takes a bit of time to remember to add. Also, some sources allow the copying of their articles as long as attribution is given. Lou attributes the post to FreeThought. That will more than likely be used more since WordPress has now disengaged the “Press This” function for all besides sites that are hosted by WordPress and have the “Press This” sharing icon.

            But, I’m sure that Lou appreciates that you appreciate the post.

              Xena,

              It is very interesting how much needs to be learned technically in order to run a WordPress blog.

              Every time that you explain something about WordPress, it really makes me grateful to those people who have blogs. Not only do they have to understand and share the subjects they write about, they also have to stay up to date on WordPress’s “how-to” instructions. 🙂

            • Yahtzee,
              Imagine becoming comfortable with all the features and functions, to come on one morning and see changes to the text box, or the Press This function. LOL! I also understand that bloggers who use cell phones see a different layout than those who use computers. I really appreciate our WordPress community because usually, one or more bloggers will share the changes they discover so others won’t have to search the forums. We really do get a lot in terms of functions for a free service and in my opinion, it’s the best blogging host available.

              The technical stuff might sound confusing to visitors and participants. I remember some years ago when someone expressed that I could make changes or additions to reblogged posts. They didn’t realize that with reblogs, we don’t get any of the post on our admin side. WordPress arranged it that way so that reblogged posts cannot be altered by anyone other than the original writer.

  2. Wow, I couldn’t watch the video, am spiritually unable to do that. But I am in awe and maybe shock that the officer was finally shown to be the barbarian he has shown himself to be throughout his career as a police officer.
