New Jersey Man Dies After Vicious Police Beating

April 2, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


On Tuesday, March 31, Phillip White, an unarmed Black man, was arrested in Vineland, New Jersey. White was already apparently unconscious in the middle of the street when a witness described a horrible scene to Channel 10 News: "They punched him, stomped him, kicked him and then they let the dog out of the car. The dog bit him on his face and around his body.... There's no call for that. Once a man is handcuffed and unconscious, you should have stuck him in the patrol car and take him to the police station. Instead they decided to beat him right here."

The Vineland police announced that Phillip White died in their custody—but they haven't released details of how he died or what they arrested him for. His aunt, Valerie White, said that she was desperately seeking answers about what happened to Phillip: "He lived the street life but he was a human being. Bottom line."

We refuse to live like this! All out for April 14 to say police murder and brutality must STOP!
