Sol, the DA of Police Brutality
Sol Greenberg was DA for Albany County for 25 years. He built a reputation of being a tough DA. And like frequent poster to the TU blogs Jango Davis stated, has been a huge supporter of police brutality. TU Post on Sol
I'm going to go down memory lane through what I think was one of the most fucked up memories for me since coming to Albany in the early 80's
Once upon a time there was a kid, Jermaine Henderson, who played basketball for the College of St Rose. He was chilling at one of my favorite spots halloween night 1997. A couple of off duty APD cops were also at the bar and for some reason a beef started between them and Henderson.
The rumors around the student ghetto was that Herderson was getting attention from some girls who the cops were kicking it to. But somehow it manifested itself over a dart game. I am sure the machine blogger can figure that one out.
Henderson was arrested, taken into an unmonitored area of the police garage and beaten by the off-duty cops. What, not in Albany? Yes stupid asses, in Albany.
Here is the story:
2 OFFICERS SUSPENDED, ACCUSED IN BEATING
LAWYER SEES POLICE TAPE AS EVIDENCE OF COVER-UP
And here is Sol Greenberg trying to bring charges back on Henderson:
DA MOVES TO REVIVE CHARGES
Here is Dan Lynch dropping some common sense:
THE PRICE OF BOTCHING A BIG ONE
Sol is what we expect from a racist political democratic machine. Let cops do whatever they want as long as the victim is black. The black community was enraged so much that, they still voted for clowns into city government. The regressives were as quiet as an organic prayer circle, that's right those same regressives who scream social justice. And another stain on a city in decline.
You know if Sol was a republican he would have been killed and dragged to death along Washington Ave as regressives beat the carcass with their shoes. But, since it was a fellow democrat, lets get together and have birthday party. My stomach turns as I type.
I would love to see a list of attendees to this love fest to see who will be running for office.
What is great about time is that it forgives. You can be an evil son of a bitch and still be respected when you end up frail in a nursing home. But I am with the victim here and I know he will never forget.
