Nov 9 - Undercover St. Louis cop says colleagues beat him 'like Rodney King'
 

 

ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis police officer pleaded guilty Friday to a federal charge and admitted beating a colleague who was working undercover during a protest in 2017.

Randy Hays, 32, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in St. Louis to a felony count of deprivation of rights under color of law.

He admitted kicking Luther Hall in the face, beating him three to five times with a baton and shoving him to the ground. Hays admitted to beating Hall while he was lying on the ground, that Hall was not a threat to officers and that there was no probable cause to arrest him.

Hays and other officers of the Civil Disobedience Team encountered Hall on Sept. 17, 2017, near 14th and Olive streets downtown during a protest that followed the acquittal of former St. Louis police Officer Jason Stockley on a murder charge two days before. It was one of a series of protests that followed the decision.

Hays could face up to 10 years in prison and three years of supervised release under recommended federal sentencing guidelines. Sentencing is set for March 17 before U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry. He remains free on bond until sentencing.

On Friday, Perry asked Hays several times if descriptions of the attack on Hall were true. Each time, Hays said, “Yes, your honor.”

Hays, who is on an unpaid suspension from the police department, will no longer be allowed to possess a gun and must surrender his state license to be a law enforcement officer.

Hays’ lawyer, Greg Smith, said after the plea that Hays took responsibility for his conduct and is remorseful about what happened.

Hays is the second officer to plead guilty in the case. Four officers were indicted in December: three were accused of throwing Hall, a 22-year police veteran, to the ground before kicking him and hitting him with a police baton; the fourth was accused of lying to a federal grand jury investigating the incident.


Hall’s injuries, some of which are permanent, include inflamed jaw muscles and a cut on his lip, a tailbone injury and herniated discs in his neck that required surgery, authorities said.

The indictment against the officers said some of them exchanged expletive-laced texts expressing “excitement about using unjustified force against (protesters) and going undetected while doing so.”

Dustin Boone, 36, and Christopher Myers, 28, have pleaded not guilty. Their trial is scheduled for Dec. 2.

In September, Bailey Colletta, 26, admitted lying to both the FBI and a federal grand jury about Hall’s a*sault. She also agreed to give up her peace officer license and faces a possible sentence of at least 30 months in prison.

Colletta’s plea says she found out that Hall was a police officer the day after the a*sault and began to learn of his injuries. In June 2018, she found out from Hays, her then-boyfriend, that the FBI was investigating. She then told an FBI agent that she didn’t know who Hall was and didn’t come into contact with him on the night of his arrest. Colletta made a series of false and misleading statements to grand jurors the next day, including that Hall was “brought to the ground very gently” and that it was a “textbook arrest,” prosecutors have said.

Hall has said he was beaten “like Rodney King,” and that in addition to his herniated discs, he had a jaw injury that made it hard to eat. Hall was beaten after fleeing from officers firing pepper spray, pepper balls and bean-bag rounds.

4 white cops brutally beat a black undercover cop nearly to death. Trump supporters will find a way to blame the black guy, since they blame black people for everything, even the black Trump supporters blame black people for everything (Clarence Thomas, Stacey Dash, Jesse Lee Patterson, Larry Elder, Candace Owens, Kanye West and many others). This is awful though, white police are very racist and hateful and will beat you to death if they could get away with it. There's a trend of evil and mental illness across police departments in America both state and local, and Trump supporters think it's perfectly normal.

the fact that he recognized and compared it to Rodney King makes me feel he's not the type to beat an innocent man for nothing

we nee more Black cops that do recognize things like that or we'll have more cops who look like nothing like the people they police

Good. All cops are bad all cops deserve to lose their job. Win/win baby
