Sep 20 - 22 Year Old With Down Syndrome Beaten For "Bulge In Pants" Was a Colostomy Bag
 

 
SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A man with special needs is speaking out after he was left badly bruised by police.

Twenty-two-year-old Gilberto Powell, who has Down Syndrome, is left with horrible bruises and scars on his face after he had an encounter with police outside his home. "That's my son. That's my baby. I really love this little boy. He's my love," said Powell's mother, Josephine.

According to the family, they were inside their Southwest Miami-Dade home last Saturday when Powell, who is also called Liko, called his parents on his cell phone to let them know he was walking a block from his friend's house. On his way home, Liko said, "The police followed me."

Liko said, the officer smacked him in the face with an open hand and knocked him to the ground. "His whole hand," he said.

According to the police report, a Miami-Dade Police officer noticed a bulge in Liko's waistband. The officer attempted to conduct a pat down, and Powell tried to run away. "I said, 'Didn't you know he was a Down Syndrome kid?' And he said, 'No, I'm not a doctor. I don't know.' And I said, 'Well, you can see it in his face that he is a Down Syndrome kid,'" said Josephine.

The bulge that Liko had on his waistband was a colostomy bag. The family said the officer pulled it from his body. "He had him by his boxers, so they took his pants off," said Liko's father, Gilberto Hernandez. "I felt helpless, because he was calling my name."

Liko was not arrested. He said he never ran away from the officer and did everything the officer told him to do.

Miami-Dade Police Department released the following statement regarding the incident: "The integrity of the investigation and successful resolution of this case continues to remain our highest priority."

The family's attorney, Philip Gold, said the family wants an apology from police. "They want an apology. They want the community to know that bad things can happen," said Gold.

The family will meet with officials on Thursday.

'The problem of power is how to achieve it's responsible use rather than its irresponsible and indulgent use - of how to get men of power to live for the public rather than off the public.'

'The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.'

these quotes both came to mind. Police forever abusing their power.

UGH South Miami has some of the most racist cops on the force EVER.

If it isn't business or pleasure I try to stay the fu*k away from South Miami.

I remember I was staying at my dude house one night and his car got smashed into so the owner of the crib called the cops (my dude rented a side apartment). Two cops showed up and one of them has a fu*king Swastika and SS bolts tatted on his arms along with some other off the wall sh*t. He refused to even talk to us. Even though I'm Hispanic I'm hella white but my homie being Hispanic and Jamaican made it certain that he wasn't going to do his job for us. Not that I gave a fu*k, I hate cops anyways plus whoever broke into my dudes car left everything valuable (wallet with a couple stacks in it, sound system, jewelry, etc...). Matter of fact only they took was his book of his artwork and photos of his work (He's a tattoo artist). Still though, fu*king cop was a scumbag.

I wonder how the fu*k they let dudes like that on the force.

Man that's sad. No jokes, just sad. I'll pray for the family b/c it's hard being a parent and not being able to help your son. I probably wouldve gotten arrested for some sh*t

Miami Dade.. If I had to be a cop around this sh*thole place, who knows what I would come to do one day... people get what they bring upon themselves. Too bad it so often hits the wrong ones.
