Stop the continual abuse, racism and violence against Native Americans from police departments and other authorities.


To: Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) & Duluth Police Department
Stop the continual abuse, racism and violence against Native Americans from police departments and other authorities.

On October 12, 2005 David Croud a 29 year old Native American from the White Earth Reservation was beaten by officers from the Duluth Police Department in downtown Duluth, MN. According to reports, Croud was apparently intoxicated and had been harassing patrons at a local casino. Police were called to take Croud to the detox center.

Eye witness accounts state "Croud was passive, it was the police officers that were the aggressive ones" The officers in question slammed Croud into a stone wall a couple of times, then flung him to the pavement. His face was bloody and there was a pool of blood on the pavement. He was then shoved into the police car.

Croud was taken to the St. Mary's Medical Center emergency room, not the detox center. He was in critical condition upon arrival, placed on life support in intensive care and never regained consciousness after going into a coma.

Croud passed away on October 18, 2005.

The question is just because someone is intoxicated, does that mean they deserve to be beaten and die because of it? What right did these eight officers have to take his life?

The eight officers involved in this incident have been placed on administrative leave and the case is "under investigation."

The continual racism and violence against Native Americans within the police departments all over the country, must come to a end. These officers should be immediately and permanently removed from duty and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. These eight officers should not be receiving special treatment in this case. The eye witnesses have stated the events that took place, the facts are all against the officers in question. Any other individual that committed this crime would already be charged and imprisoned awaiting trail. Instead almost two weeks later, the case is still "under investigation."

Please support this petition and let the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) & Duluth Police Department know that this behavior and lack of immediate action will no longer be tolerated.

The people DEMAND action in this case and these eight officers be prosecuted in a criminal court for their crime. Justice must be served.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

Man in racism dispute dies

DULUTH: Family takes man off life support at SMDC; American Indians call for outside investigation of police conduct.

BY STEVE KUCHERA

NEWS TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER


Never regained consciousness after going into a coma at SMDC on Oct. 12.

David Michael Croud, 29, died Tuesday afternoon at St. Mary's Medical Center, six days after an intoxicated confrontation with police in downtown Duluth.

Croud, a member of the White Earth Band of Chippewa, never regained consciousness after going into a coma and being placed on life support after being medicated at SMDC when taken into custody by police on Oct. 12.

The incident has led to racism allegations against Duluth police and city officials. Members of the American Indian community are calling for an outside investigation of his death, possibly involving the American Civil Liberties Union or Minnesota Attorney General's office.

Jim Croud said Wednesday morning that his brother died about 4 p.m. Tuesday. He declined further comment.

According to the city, the St. Louis County Medical Examiner's office will perform an autopsy on Croud's body.

"I want to express my condolences to the family," said Duluth American Indian Commission member Mike Sayers. "I know it was a tough decision for them to make to take him off life support."

Sayers is on a three-member subcommittee that American Indian Commission Chairman Robert Powless created to examine the Croud incident, which the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating at the request of Duluth Police Chief Roger Waller.

The BCA will present its findings to the county attorney's office, which will decide whether to file any criminal charges.

"We're not happy with the investigation," Sayers said. "The BCA is just another branch of law enforcement which works hand-in-hand" with Duluth police. "They're going to come back and say there is no wrongdoing. We want to try to initiate our own investigation through an outside agency," such as the ACLU or state Attorney General Mike Hatch, Sayers said.

Subcommittee chairman Anthony LaDeaux said the commission has kept the ACLU informed of the Croud case since last week. He said there is no schedule for the subcommittee to complete its work.

"Right now, we're helping out the family as much as possible, both spiritually and financially if we can. A lot has happened to this family," he said. "There will be some questions asked in the future."

Dave Bjerga, special agent in charge of the BCA's Bemidji regional office, which is handling the investigation, couldn't be reached to say whether Croud's death will delay the agency's report.

Bjerga had said earlier he expected the BCA to finish the investigation by late this week. He also had earlier denied that the investigation was going to be anything other than complete and honest.

Some people have questioned police action in the incident and statements made by Waller and Duluth Mayor Herb Bergson after Croud was put on life support.

On Oct. 13, Bergson said he was "willing to put my reputation, my career and my life on the line and stand behind" the officers involved.

Some American Indians feel that the statements of support for the police officers' actions show that the investigation is tainted and disrespectful of the Croud family. They also are upset about previous cases in which no one was charged after American Indians died -- although not after contact with the police.

The Duluth American Indian Commission spent two hours of its monthly meeting Monday talking about the issue with Waller and Duluth chief administrative officer Julio Almanza, who attended in Bergson's place.

Some commission members and many of the 30 members of the public attending the meeting were skeptical of Waller's claim that race played no part in the incident, or that police acted properly.

Waller asked those on the commission and within the American Indian community to be patient as the BCA investigates. He also promised that after the BCA reaches its conclusion, an agency representative will appear before the commission to answer its questions.

According to police: .

Hi
I'm so outraged about this I cannot put my feelings into words. How can cops can do this to a human being they should be locked up with the convicts deal with them. They would have to answer to the Great Spirit for their deeds. I'm so outraged by this case of police brutality. The family should sue the DPD for the police brutality they committed against another human being. I Know the family from the powwows I have gone to. I Signed the Petition for the justice for the family too.

Aay White Powwow Dancer - Reader Weekly Report differs from Duluth News Tribune

Thanks for following this story & signing the petition.....I hope you were able to forward the petition on to others to sign....if anyone has AOL, they will need to contact Tamra thru http://www.NDNnews.com .

http://www.petitiononline.com/Croud/petition.html


There's another article that differs some from the Duluth News Tribune, you may want to read at: http://www.readerweekly.us/issue/341/Robert_Boone.html

The fatal David Croud incident

Robert Boone of Reader Weekly

David Michael Croud died on the afternoon of October 18, six days after losing consciousness during his detention by Duluth police. Police reported that Croud was intoxicated and harassing customers outside Fond-du-Luth Casino at approximately 6 p.m. on October 12. They claim he resisted arrest and was brought to St. Mary’s Medical Center where he stopped breathing and was placed on life support. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (MBCA) is investigating witness allegations that police were un-necessarily aggressive and bloodied Croud’s face against a stone wall during the arrest and that an electroshock weapon was deployed against Croud after he was restrained and in police custody. The MBCA has interviewed eight police officers so far in it’s investigation.

The Mancini Interview

Mike Mancini, owner of Downtown Computer, witnessed the October 12 Duluth Police Department detention of David Croud outside his business at 203 E. Superior St. Mancini and two of his employees had stepped onto the sidewalk in front of his storefront at approximately 6 p.m. Mancini didn’t notice Croud until the policemen were already confronting him.

Mancini saw the officers (one uniformed, one plainclothes) approach Croud. “They had him pinned face first against the sandstone wall of our building,” he told the Reader. Croud was non-combative while the officers repeatedly thrust him against the wall while attempting to handcuff him. At this point, Mancini asked what “this guy had been doing” and an officer replied that he was causing trouble at the Fond du Luth Casino. Unable to secure the handcuffs, the officers pulled him back from the wall, “then they flung him to the sidewalk, putting all their weight on him, their knees to his back,” finally succeeding at cuffing him. When they pulled him back up, one side of his face was a mass of blood, leaving a pool of blood on the sidewalk.

As he stood up and was being walked to the squad car double-parked nearby, he began complaining about losing his hat. This seemed to agitate him. An officer said they could get his hat. As they tried to put Croud into the squad car, he stopped cooperating, basically he just tried to stand still and would not bend over to get in the back seat. The officers repeatedly and loudly ordered him to stop resisting.

At this time a woman walked up to the rear bumper of the squad. As the officers seemed to know her and did not ask her to step back, Mancini believes she was also a police officer. Mancini noted that the woman remained there and was, in his opinion, in an ideal position to observe the remainder of the incident.

The two officers succeeded in getting Croud into of the squad car and closed the door.

Croud now seemed to be safely restrained. One of the officers then ran forward to another squad car parked three or four car lengths closer to Second Avenue East. The officer reached into the back seat of the car, picked up an item, and carried it back. Mancini could not see what the item was, but heard someone say, “Oh, they’re going to taser him.” The officer reached into the back of the car toward Croud, inserting his upper body and both arms into the car for approximately ten seconds. Mancini observed a blue flash. Mancini is not positive that the blue flash was from a taser. Daniel Keinbaum, an employee of Downtown Computer, said he heard an electronic sound twice, once faintly then louder. The officers then drove Croud away. Only two officers were involved in the detention of Croud.

The longer he thought about it, the more concerned Mancini became over the nature of this incident. Mancini has witnessed dozens of arrests in downtown Duluth over the years and he’s never seen one with this level of police aggression. At the time, Mancini did not know whether Croud was seriously injured. Mancini was just bothered by how violent the event was.

At approximately 8 p.m., Mancini called 911 to report an aggressive incident with a police arrest. The 911 operator referred him to another officer who promptly arranged for the police to go to Downtown Computer, tape it off, and take a variety of pictures of the scene.

A Duluth police officer and Jerome Koneczny of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension interviewed Mancini that evening. Both officers were very polite, professional, and thorough. Mancini described the incident in detail and at length.

The Aftermath and A Few Questions

If Croud was indeed shocked with a Taser after he was already in custody, what was the justification?

An officer interviewing Mancini stated that there was another incident involving police in front of Fond-du-Luth Casino at the same time. According to the Duluth News Tribune, the Fond du Luth Casino chief of security denied that any incident occurred there. It raises the question of what, if anything, happened at the Casino. If there was a separate incident, is it possible that the two officers who apprehended Croud had the wrong man?

MBCA has interviewed eight officers in connection with this case. Only two officers were involved with Croud’s detention; plus potentially the woman Mancini witnessed at the rear of the squad car. Where were the other five officers and what were they doing? If they were at the Casino, how is that incident related to Croud’s? Kienbaum stated that he noticed other officers standing in front of the nearby Norshor Theatre at this time. He didn’t recall how many.

Contrary to the Duluth News Tribune editorial lamenting the lack of a camera in this incident, Fond du Luth Casino has a high quality security camera at the front corner of their building aimed down the sidewalk toward the Croud incident, which occurred of approximately 160-200 feet away. As it was still light outside, careful analyses of the data should help confirm the truth. The Reader has learned that MBCA’s Koneczny has viewed tape.

Many of Duluth’s American Indians are incensed by Duluth Mayor Herb Bergson’s unequivocal support for the officers involved; feeling Bergson’s statement suggests that the outcome of the investigation has been pre-judged by city officials. Bergson previously was a long term police detective, and served as Mayor of Superior. Croud was a member of the White Earth Chippewa tribe.

Duluth Police Chief Roger Waller did not return the Reader’s calls by deadline. Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (MBCA) agent Jerome Koneczny declined comment, referring the Reader to David Bjerga; a MBCA agent from Bemidji, who did return our call by deadline,

Croud had a history of over 40 contacts with the police, mostly alcohol related. He leaves behind four children.

Angry St. Louis County Medical Examiner - AHHHHH!!!!!

Oh White Powwow Dancer.....

NO WAY! This is NOT justice by any means! I just read that freaking article & thankfully these people will also meet the Creator. Thanks for passing the petition along.....it's still suffering for much needed signatures. What I do not understand is how most are sitting on the sidelines, complaining, but never doing anything to help.

Many Blessings,
