Woman Blinded for "Contempt of Cop"
Will Grigg’s Liberty Minute
May 11, 2012
Thanks to police officer Enoch Clark, Beaumont, California resident Monique Hernandez will never see her ten-year-old daughter again.
On February 21, Clark conducted a traffic stop involving Hernandez, who was suspected of drunk driving. When Clark attempted to handcuff her, Hernandez resisted. The officer responded by using a JPX device – a firearm that uses a gunpowder charge to fire a stream of pepper spray at roughly 400 miles an hour. The JPX weapon is designed for use at a distance of 6 to 15 feet. Clark fired it into Hernandez’s temple from a distance of roughly ten inches, blowing apart her right eye and leaving the left with severe, irreparable damage.
Hernandez was taken to the hospital and never charged. Clark’s attorney insists that the attack was necessary “to gain compliance and in defense of his person.” Following an investigation by the county Sherriff’s office, a grand jury indicted Clark on four felony charges. The officer, a former spokesman for the local police union, was placed on administrative leave -- which is to say that he was given a paid vacation.
The killing and maiming of unarmed, non-violent offenders will continue – and escalate—until we severely rein in the police.
Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
