BALDWIN, LA — A man went to his local police department to check on a restraining order filed against him, and ended up dead after a Confederate-style execution.
Mr. Damon “Poppo” Abraham arrived at the Baldwin Police station with his sister Thursday afternoon, but was told by employees there he had “outstanding warrants.” Mr. Abraham, fearing for his life knowing he would be locked in a cage for arbitrary “crimes,” took off running. One of Baldwin’s cops, whose name is being protected by the city, got close enough to Mr. Abraham, 33, to shoot him with a Taser.
Mr. Abraham, according to witnesses, was then handcuffed and electrocuted three more time with the device and beaten severely with a baton. Showing obvious physical signs of distress, Mr. Abraham was transported first to Franklin Foundation Hospital for stabilization, and died shortly thereafter while being transported to a Lafayette hospital. The killer was rewarded with a paid vacation, aka “paid administrative leave.”

The Louisiana State Police are handling the kangaroo investigation of the murder, which will inevitably be ruled “justified.” Baldwin police are now saying Mr. Abraham may have been on narcotics which may be the reason for his death. However, witnesses and family members are consistently telling the same story of a brutal beating and several Taser shots.
“How can [you] receive a broken jar closed eye and head injuries from a Taser,” Jajuan “Fish” Abraham, Damon’s nephew, said via Facebook. “And let’s not forget [they dragged him] to the car like you drag a dead dog with a collar,” he said.
Mr. Abraham leaves behind a son and daughter who will now grow up without a father. Our thoughts are with the Abraham family.

Don’t these Racist Police organizations all over America realize they have set in motion an environment of hostility towards Police? To the point where they themselves will no longer be safe from being taken hostage while on duty and or killed. This is the kind of America the Police are creating when they continuously take to violence as a means of punishment. What ever happened to Interpersonal communication skills? What happened to exhausting every means of negotiations and diplomacy before turning to violent means? Violent means begets violent means. Police are only to serve and protect not be Judge Jury and Executioner. Too many cases of Police brutality, murder and coverups to forget. Too many young people dying at the hands of Police in this Country. Too many Mothers and Fathers burying there children. How long before Police are green lit and targeted? I sense something’s in the air. I hope it’s just the wind. God help us all!!
