The Man Beaten by Miami Police in Viral Video has Escaped from the Hospital

Leskeil Richards initially drew the suspicion of police because he was not wearing a seatbelt while riding passenger in a Land Rover driven by his sister Sunday afternoon in the Liberty City neighborhood of Miami.

The sister was also “moving faster than the normal flow of traffic,” according to a police report obtained by the Miami Herald.

But the 25-year-old man, who had an active warrant over a strong-armed robbery arrest, climbed into the back seat and acted as if he were sleeping. When the cop ordered him out of the car, he “appeared to be looking for an avenue of escape,” which is when they began using force on him.

However, nowhere in the report did police mention an officer used a chokehold banned by the department “unless intended as deadly force to save lives,” the Herald reports. The chokehold was captured on video by a witness from the backseat of a car.

There was also no mention in the report of what appeared to be a heated conversation between the muscular Miami cop who placed him in a chokehold and the Miami-Dade cop who appeared not to approve of the punching and choking on the suspect.

Richards, meanwhile, has slipped from their hands by escaping from the county hospital he was transported to as a result of the injuries he suffered at the hands of police.

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.
