THE ATHWAL BROTHERS: FROM THE AMERICAN DREAM TO A CONTINUING NIGHTMARE PART I | The Back Story News

www.backstorynews.com [cached]

Diop Kamau, founder/director of Policeabuse.com, enlisted by the Athwals for an investigation, advocacy and support, described the raids "as a police attack, a ghetto search of the kind frequently staged in low-income and minority neighborhoods.
Kamau said, "they are designed to exact penalties without ever having to make arrests, so criminals or suspects can be punished without consequences for investigating officers." Further Kamau said, "they allow rogue officers to punish criminal suspects by inflicting deliberate property damage. Police officers, he said, "can justify the damage as part of a legitimate search warrant, without ever telling a judge that the items they broke or destroyed were part of the search." Such wiggle room, he said, "gives police the security and protection of a legitimate court order and allows them to diverge into illegitimate abuses of police power thinly veiled under a court sanctioned search. Proving police did deliberate damage is difficult and often victims never recover damages, Kamau said. Kamau's credentials as a nationally respected authority in policing were first established when he earned a position on the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office's Red Team, an elite undercover detective arm that targeted career felons. Kamau was cited for his extraordinary service, in which he had a direct hand in the arrest and conviction of nearly 300 suspects and recovered more than $500,000 in stolen property as part of the multi-jurisdictional unit. As such, his opinions about the treatment of the Athwal brothers runs contrary to what he learned while serving as a highly decorated member of one of the nation's most prestigious undercover units.


STANISLAUS COUNTY MALICIOUS PROSECUTION INVESTIGATION | The Back Story News

Diop Kamau, founder/director of Policeabuse.com, enlisted by the Athwals for an investigation, advocacy and support, described the raids "as a police attack, a ghetto search of the kind frequently staged in low-income and minority neighborhoods.

Proving police did deliberate damage is difficult and often victims never recover damages, Kamau said. Kamau's credentials as a nationally respected authority in policing were first established when he earned a position on the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office's Red Team, an elite undercover detective arm that targeted career felons. Kamau was cited for his extraordinary service, in which he had a direct hand in the arrest and conviction of nearly 300 suspects and recovered more than $500,000 in stolen property as part of the multi-jurisdictional unit. As such, his opinions about the treatment of the Athwal brothers runs contrary to what he learned while serving as a highly decorated member of one of the nation's most prestigious undercover units. Kamau, commenting on the "police attack," said, "irrespective of the motives of District Attorney's, whether political or linked to unknown reasons, these tactics run counter to the standards and guidelines for suspect interviews and investigative purposes as defined by the International Association of Police Chiefs and other oversight bodies." Continuing to explain, Kamau added, "no matter the reason, none of these police behaviors were supported by law or policy. The deliberate refusal to properly receive complaints undermines the credibility of the prosecutor's claims against the Athwal brothers." A properly managed investigation, Kamau said, "would not have included deliberately damaging property, highly inappropriate and abusive language and deliberate attempts to undermine a family's ability to support itself through its business operation." Through spokesmen, Kamau noted, "police investigators claim that none of this happened. Policeabuse.com, however, "has taken witness statements supported by affidavits saying that they most certainly did." As a result, Kamau continued, "nothing said by prosecutor's can be trusted because they haven't properly investigated the complaints against the prosecutor's investigators. Rather, they simply proclaimed themselves innocent and accused the Athwals of complaining, as a strategy to derail the prosecution without supplying a single shred of evidence to support this baseless claim." This argument, Kamau said, " is circular and leaves the Athwal brothers with no where to go. If they don't complain, the abuse will continue. But if they do complain, prosecutors will accuse them of leveraging the complaints as a strategy to thwart a proper and legitimate prosecution. This line of argument is preposterous and fair-minded people easily see through it, Kamau said. The District Attorney and the Sheriffs Department, Kamau charged, "want to destroy a successful minority-owned business. As such he said, "there is a race and class component to this prosecution. Low-income whites, African Americans and people of color like the Athwals are neon targets for these kinds of prosecutions which zero in on one's ability to earn a living as part of the case he pointed out. "Starving a business of sorely needed revenue can force targets to accept a plea or offer evidence," he noted. "Extorting a plea like this would not be tolerated in a high income business community. If the Athwal's liquor stores were owned by affluent, well connected Modesto citizens, these behaviors would not be brushed off by Stanislaus County's political, social and economic elites-there would be outrage." In contrast, Kamau said, "it is abundantly clear that they are trying to drive Baljit out of business, in part because he is considered insignificant. He is a dark man, from India, who is not connected to political power sufficient to stop this wholly unjustified assault on his family." Moreover, Kamau said, "the District Attorneys abusive and unprofessional treatment of the Athwals strongly suggests a racial component to the repeated actions of the police assigned to her office. Telling Baljit's wife that he is an adulterer sleeping with prostitutes appears designed to humiliate and ridicule the family in a manner recognized in minority communities. The affront to the dignity of the father of the household is deliberate and intended to cause a special type of pain and embarrassment." Policeabuse.com, Kamau said, "is also appalled that Fladager and her police unit have harassed attorney Frank Carson. Fladager and her men, Kamau said, "hope to beat something, anything at all, out of Baljit; they know they can't go toe to toe with an attorney, especially one of Frank Carson's stature." Although Carson, his family and friends weren't subjected to comparable abuse, intimidation and harassment, Kamau said "police and the prosecutor are inflicting as much damage on him, but in a different form: Among voters, in the political arena, where Fladager can smear him and sully his reputation." "The District attorney and her police unit," Kamau added, "have attacked the Pop N Cork stores to exhaust the Athwal's resources, and because they can. They think if they squeeze hard enough, they'll get something." If these officers, Kamau said, "begin going door to door in Frank Carson's neighborhood to harass his family, friends and clients, then, and only then, will I believe that the suspects are being treated equally regardless of race. Some 24 days after the raids, Kamau left a message for Bunch, "warning him against further harassment. If you walk into either of Mr. Athwal's stores, everything you say will be recorded; you are not to ask him any questions," Kamau said.
