New Jersey Officers Not Charged after Attacking Deaf Bystander who tried Helping

A week after a video was posted online of New Jersey officers arresting a deaf man who was trying to help them, prosecutors announced they would not charge the officers.

Raasean Adams, 42, has a hearing impairment, and tried to help officers in a traffic stop.

Adams was asked by officers to leave the area but he refused to leave. Officers also state that Adams was under the influence of alcohol.

The video starts out with officers already on top of Adams attempting to put him in handcuffs.

A minute and 18 seconds into it both the officers attempt to force Adams head into the sidewalk.

In the next 9 seconds, an officer is seen punching Adams in the head twice.

​At a minute and 40 seconds into the video, the same officer that was punching Adams is seen running into the street to chase a bystander.

Two minutes into the video, Adams allows an officer to handcuff him.

After reviewing the video and police reports, the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office decided to clear all the officers of any wrong doing by not charging them.

Officers claim that he allegedly threw a lit cigarette at one of the officers which promoted their response.

Adams is currently facing charges of aggravated assault and resisting arrest.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
