Mississippi ex-officers plead guilty to state charges in torture of Black men

Six White former Mississippi law enforcement officers pleaded guilty to state charges Monday for physically and verbally abusing two Black men in a blatantly racist attack in January that included a 90-minute torture session, in a case that has sparked outrage over police brutality against Black men.


The officers, who branded themselves “the Goon Squad,” threw eggs at Michael Jenkins and Eddie Parker, held them down while pouring milk and alcohol over their faces, and assaulted one of them with a sword, prosecutors said. One officer carried out a “mock execution” by inserting a gun into the mouth of one man, according to the indictment. When the firearm discharged, it broke his jaw.

On Monday, the six men pleaded guilty to state charges of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to hinder prosecution and agreed to sentences recommended by state prosecutors that range from five to 15 years, according to   Mississippi Today .

The motto ''Protect and Serve'' didn't mean anything to these scumbags.

Sadly, it sure seems that way in Mississippi.

Jesus H. Christ.  He should rot in prison.

I am appreciatively happy that "the goon squad" did not have the temerity to 'finish' the two men off after firm evidence of a crime being committed by a bullet through the mouth of one of the captives. After that action, this situation was not going to get any better, could have gotten desperately and drastically worse. Again, both of those men are lucky to be alive and not silenced.

They are facing a federal trial in November and the article stated that the sentence in the federal case will run concurrently with the state charges. I think that is BS they should not run concurrently. 

Parchman Farm would be a great prison to send them to, but it's been improved since it was known as the worse prison in the US. I doubt that they will be sent there and they will not be put in the general population. Too damn bad, it's where they belong.

Something else is interesting and possibly unusual about today's pleas by the "goon squad." They all pleaded guilty to my knowledge. That does not happen often (enough). Apparently, these six men are throwing themselves on the mercy of the court.

Kavika, you are really angry about this, I can feel the emotion emanating from the tone of your comments. Am I right?

Cops have their own cell block. They coddle fucking corrupt cops in prison.

Were these assholes in uniform when they did this?

It's difficult to believe that other cops didn't know what was going on.

It is highly probable that "goons" can only go so far . . .when they have gone too far. Remember those black-skinned police "monsters": 

Video shows Memphis police officers kicking, beating Tyre Nichols

January 28, 2023 2:35 PM PST Updated 7 months ago
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan 27 (Reuters) - Tyre Nichols repeatedly cried, "Mom! Mom!” as the five Memphis police officers now charged with the Black motorist's murder pummeled him with kicks, punches and baton blows after a Jan. 7 traffic stop , video released by the city on Friday showed .

Apparently, these black "goons" operated with LEO immunity until they decided to go outside the parameters of who is worthy of a beat-down that results in severe injury and death. 

This recent incident reminds me that dark and dangerous people are made in every shade of skin-color.

I watched a news story about this today and the search is on for who else this "goon squad" has done this too.  How brazen these men are! Just threw their lives and careers away for something stupid and downright outrageous.

IMO, they should spend the rest of their lives in prison, no parole at all.

If there were others "gooned on" by the 'Squad,' then they must have had the fear of God put into them! But, why didn't the same fear work this time? Could it have been one of the men was shot and had to go to a hospital where a "report" of a gunshot would was required to be filed?

I doubt if this was a secret among the LEOs and yes Thomas, the system should be more than questioned.

5 years to 15? Hopefully genpop will impose a more fitting sentence.

15 years should be the shortest of sentences and the fed charges running concurrently is nonsense.

Agreed, But I'm afraid the fix is in, you own article states 5 to 15 was the plea deal. Disgusting.

Yeah I don't agree with that, either. The federal sentence should start after their state sentences are finished
