Amateur Videos Of Protests in Colon Capture Blatant Police Abuse

Protests & Demonstrations By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - The situation in Colon is very dangerous. Do not go there for any reason. If you think there is some sort of emergency you have to attend there, then whoever is in Colon should approach the authorities and request assistance to be evacuated, if necessary. The US Embassy in Panama City has issued a warning against travel to Colon because of the ongoing protests and acts of violence. One ten year old boy was killed by gunfire, and several others have been injured, including three police officers. Last night journalists who were covering the scene were attacked and fired upon, and they had to be escorted out of the area under police protection. In short, there should be no reason whatsoever to travel to Colon until this situation blows over.

Blatant Police Abuse: I started writing this article to publish some of the videos taken by journalists of the street fighting, but then I can across this video taken by some residents in Colon from the balcony of their apartment. They are looking down on a large group of police officers who are in the process of arresting some protesters. There is one man who is handcuffed, on the ground, and helpless. One fat police officer (coward) comes up and repeatedly kicks him in the face. He then steps on his head and bounces up and down. Another police officer takes this same man and throws him violently to the ground, and he hits his head on the pavement because he is handcuffed, and he cannot stop his fall. Then fat ass comes back into the scene with another two handcuffed suspects, who are also being arrested. The man making the video says "you're abusing, I've got you recorded on video." Then the police officer opens fire on the people making the video with his service weapon, and the video stops. If you ever had any doubt about the lack of control and abuse committed by the members of the Panamanian National Police, you should have none now. "Unprofessional" is an understatement. His actions were criminal. If this SOB doesn't end up in prison, then there is no justice in Panama. And for the record, when I found this video it had less than 60 views total. I just called my media contacts at TVN and I'm pretty sure "fat ass" is going to get famous, quick. Watch this video:



These Are Just "Standard" Protest Videos:

Calling a cop with his weapon drawn a f_g_ot is asking for trouble. This guy's adrenalin level is at its max, worrying about bullets flying past his head and scared shitless he might not make it home to see his wife and children ever again. Don't fuck with him! Keep your mouth shut and report the abuse you captured on film.

Thank you to the police for risking their safety to keep these animal
acting people at bay. This kind of thing is happening worldwide and I
really appreciate the strong hand the police here in panama maintain
letting these hoodlums know they cant get away with this.
Like crime ridden cities in the usa ,detroit for example,where you are advised
not to even enter by the govt. and authorities, and the police there dont even want to enter these types of areas,these places need to be fenced in
like the movie escape from new york and let these people who want to loot and harm innocent people do it upon themselves and in their own world behind the fence.

The police officers in Colon were tasked with regaining order. The protesters were shooting at police and looting stores. They were given a tough assignment, clearly.

However, once a police officer takes a suspect into custody, then they are requred by law to act in a professional and responsible manner. Brutally kicking a helpless detainee in the face repeatedly should never be accepted or condoned by any civilized society, under any circumstances. If you accept this or support the brutal and criminal actions of these police officers - who are in fact cowards - then what is the difference between the ciminals and the police officers? This is the fundamental basis of the rule of law vs. the rule of man. Really. Civilization 101. Try to keep up.

Ill go one better, anybody who doesent like the police really protecting the public
as it needs to be done and is living here,go move to costa rica,where the police all but give escorts to the thieves who will rob your house and tie you up and maybe even beat the crap out of you. Try that for a while.
Normal civilized people cant live with these type of dangerous protesting animals anyway. Thats life. Sorry.
