Joe Arpaio's Victim Marty Atencio Killed by "Law Enforcement Subdual," Among Other Factors, Says Medical Examiner (w/Update)

MARTYRESIZE2.jpg
Marty Atencio, a victim of "law enforcement subdual"

NB: Please see my update at the end of this blog item, with links to the full autopsy and toxicology reports.

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office has issued a determination as to the cause of death for Marty Atencio, the Army vet brutally beaten and Tased in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's infamous Fourth Avenue Jail on December 15, then shipped off brain dead to Saint Joseph's Hospital, where his family ultimately removed him from life support.

The terse statement reads, in part:

"The cause of death has been determined to be COMPLICATIONS OF CARDIAC ARREST IN THE SETTING OF DUE TO ACUTE PSYCHOSIS, LAW ENFORCEMENT SUBDUAL, AND DUE TO MULTIPLE MEDICAL PROBLEMS. and the manner of death is UNDETERMINED."

The quote above is as it appears in the MEO's one page letter, which you can review, here

I obtained this copy from the Atencio family's attorney Mike Manning, who says the family soon will file a notice of claim against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and the Phoenix Police Department, as officers from both departments were involved in Atencio's in-custody beat-down.

Asked for a response to the medical examiner's statement, Manning was appropriately outraged. 

"This report," he wrote me via e-mail, "coupled with the video of Marty's torturous death and the witnesses who confirm that the MCSO [detention officers] knew Marty was mentally ill and, for sport and amusement, teased him and made fun of him makes this tragedy such a gruesome confirmation of that culture of cruelty that Arpaio has created in our jails."

He added, "The fact that they attacked this sick and vulnerable man for sport and so gratuitously, would embarrass Third World jailers."

Not a chance with Montepoodle, never going to happen. >>One wonders if the county attorney's office will hold any of these law enforcement officers responsible for Atencio's death.

Way to show your intelligence Bastard.  The fractured ribs would be the result of chest compressions during the administration of CPR.  Maybe do a little research around other angles that don't match up with your agenda.  Also, the OME cows to no one and pretty much does whatever the hell it wants.  Truly a county office with no politicians as the department head.

I've posted this before and I'll post it again: every time you don't think it could get worse, it does. And by that I mean that every time the facts are revealed and we see how soul-less Arpaio is, a lot of people will come on the forums and say 'this is going to be the tipping point for real justice.'
 
Unfortunately justice never comes and you can be sure that within a week or two that Arpaio will aggressively and loudly and public relations heavy pull another stunt that will have you scratching your head.... probably banging it against the wall... these kinds of things just stoke Arpaio's psychopathic tendencies and upping the ante distracts everyone from the latest mess. He does this because he feels that he has no 'boss' but himself. He is a very old and mentally incompetent individual. A Joe McCarthy for our era.

And on a totally unrelated note, why does one of the posters here always write Ste(ph)en Lemons? I still don't get it.

I still have many questions about the death of fellow veteran Marty Atencio.  My first question is very simple -- If Marty Atencio was in a psychological crisis then why did the officer's bring him to the county jail rather than a medical facility?  Secondly, if he was displaying offensive, volatile, or aggressive behavior why did they remove his handcuffs?  To continue, why did so many officers gather in the room with the officers attending Atencio?  Did they not have other prisoners to supervise and "protect".

My questions could go on for a while, however, I will limit myself to one more.  Why, in light of the result (Marty Atencio's death), the public video and the obvious outrage; has none of the officers and medical staff involved been suspended?  To my knowledge there has been no disclosure of any internal investigation by MCSO into what happened.  Joker Arpaio has already said they did nothing wrong but that's only according to his sick idea of what is acceptable.  In most law enforcement agencies in the United States (yes Joe you are in the U.S. and their laws ARE yours) the officers and such involved would have at least been moved to a position where they would not have been in direct contact with any inmates.  Most police agencies would have suspended them pending investigation.  Not here, things just go on the same as usual.

The buck stops here, says Arpaio.  For once, he is right.  VOTE ARPAIO OUT OF OFFICE THIS NOVEMBER.

I would like to think that Marty Atencio's death is the one event that even Joe supporters will condemn.  This should be the straw that broke the camel's back.  My prayers to his family.  I will always remember Marty even though I never met him.  Not only was his death a tragedy, but was on the same day my Mom died.  The two events will forever be entwined for me.  God bless Marty and my Mom.

After reading JJ Hensley's article on the same story and seeing the cavernous disparity between his story and that of ste(ph)en lemons one of two things are occurring. At least one of the authors are either blatantly lying or are extremely misinformed and incompetent.

Lemons title to this story is classic yellow journalism. "Joe Arpaio's victim, Marty Atencio killed by "law enforcement subdual," among other things, according to the county medical examiner.". There are a number of issues I have with the integrity of this title. I will focus on one.
The medical examiners office states that Marty Atencio suffered from an "acute Psychotic episode.". Whether this episode occurred prior to the subdual or as a result of the subdual is unclear. Yet in Hensley's story, Marty Atencio ingested methamphetamine at 5:00 that same afternoon. This piece of information is a significant discrepancy between stories. Which is true? Atencio perished as a result of cardiac arrest. Can that be spurned from an application of the coratid hold technique? Yes, it can sometimes occur. (it was a PPD officer who applied the hold). Can it occur as a result of a drive stun from an x26 taser? Previous case history says no. Can it be a result of construction of breathing or labored fighting? Yes. Can it occur as a result of injesting methamphetamine. Absolutely. It's impossible to determine how much of what issue caused Atencio to die. Will Mike Manning make oodles of money from this case? Without a doubt, he will. Does he care about Atencio? If he did, he would give his profit to the Atencio family since it is they who lost a loved one. Will that happen?

It's cool and sheik to lay all blame in mcso for all the wrongs occurring in the world. Ignore the personal responsibility of the individual and go after the deep pockets of the County. Ignore PPD's role in the scenario and call Arpaio the culprit. Why? Because there is no agenda against PPD. Yet lemons absolutely has an agenda against all things anti open border. That much is certain.
Once again lemons proves he will exploit even the death of a war veteran in order to bolster his agenda.

REPUBLICAN PARTY (scammers that make look great anyone or anything and regardless of ugliness or perversion = support for democratic party or zionism) AND DEMOCRATS (extremistic ZIONIST party) ARE ONE PARTY SYSTEM (self elected democracy = zionist totalitarianism = prison state) WHILE DUKES(pukes) ARE USED TO FORTIFY THIS ONE PARTY HOMOBAMAISOSAMA SYSTEM WITH ADDITIONAL BETREYAL(need more proofs = your genocide).

ZIONISM = REPRESENTS FOREIGN(multiculturalism) AND NOT NATIVE WHITE POPULATION IN OUR COUNTRIES.

Thanks a lot Joe for fucking a family out of their loved one and taxpayers out of more cash. You really are a disgrace and a failure.

Marty Atencio, thank you for protecting and defending the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. RIP. May the Lord Jesus Christ watch over your soul for all eternity.

“Joe Arpaio is not always familiar with the truth when it pertains to this Office and this State,” Allen wrote in an email. “Arpaio appears willing to use lies and deceit to denigrate the detention profession — always with the ultimate goal in mind — to secure more money from taxpayers for himself.”

gyfs: If emts did the CPR or if any trained person did the CPR, especially on someone without osteoporosis and the like, broken ribs are NOT likely be a result of chest compressions. The precordial thump is rarely used these days; early on EMTs etc. employed that before chest compressions... and that thump could break ribs.

Proper chest compressions do not result in broken ribs.

I think you meant chic.

Somebody needs to be held accountable in this man's death.

All who were in that room and viewing it on cam are responsible for what happened that day. They all made a choice to not stop the abuse until Atencio wasn't moving anymore...then they walked away knowing what they did and waited. What were they waiting for? Was he going to revive himself? Were they waiting for him to get back up so they could go back for more?

Testosterone is a powerful thing....some men have no control whatsoever of it.

This is sad and you should be grateful it wasn't anybody from your family or that you knew.

Well, here's your first lie: Hensley's article says that Atencio "said" he had ingested meth at 5pm. That's what a mentally ill person "said." Look at the video, dumbass. Who jumped who? The cowardly cops jumped en masse on a man standing in front of them with his arms crossed. Jesus Christ, the guy was mentally ill and was arrested for yelling at someone. Did that deserve the death penalty?

As usual, you attack Lemons and go on the defensive for your buddies in brown.

Did you bother to read the toxicology report?  I didn't think so.  He tested positive for tylenol and an anti-depressant.  NEGATIVE FOR METH, or any other "street drug".

Did you get the part where he was arrested for yelling?  Did you get the part where the police reports said he was cooperative with the police?  Did you watch the video at 4th Ave jail?  Tell me what it was that he did that warranted what happened.  I saw him standing with his back to the wall and his arms crossed over his chest.  Then he was grabbed by a couple of PPD guys and thrown on the floor, and the PPD was joined by some MCSO guys while the proceeded to beat the shit out of him.  (Did you bother to read the autopsy report?)

Did you see him laying face down, unconscious on the floor and one of your "brothers" pointing his Tazer at him again?  That was extremely disturbing behavior.  Marty had already had his last conscious thought ever, by that time.  Do you suppose if he'd had an involuntary muscle twitch, he would have gotten tazed again?  I believe he would have.

Did you happen to wonder how long after being tossed on the floor like a bag of garbage before anyone checked on his well-being?

Yourproductsucks,

You do realize that by trolling EVERYTHING you can find that condemns your boyfriend Sheriff Joke, your showing you approve of his racial descrimination and guilt by association, your own. All one has to do is read some of your comments to see your clearly a hater.

Please take a moment a stop the hate and listen. The AZ economy is heavily dependent on winter visitors, I know your not dumb and can see we do. Did you know this year sales for most of the east valley businesses where down this year? Between 15-20%, because less snowbirds. My business took a drop of 18%. Do you know why we had less winter visitors? (I'm sure this is where you say, "in my racist heart, it's because of that black guy in office...you know, the one not born here!') the real reason? Winter Visitors no longer think AZ IS SAFE. Here is why:

1. A US Congressmember is shot. But Granny Ruth in Davenport Iowa thinks. Well surely something positive came out of that. Nope, Giffords was a NON-ALEC Democrat, so why would the leadership in AZ do anything? As a matter of fact, less than a month later, the leadership passes legalization of GUNS IN BARS.

Granny Ruth is still looking to go to AZ.

2. Governor Skeletor tells the media and anyone else she can find that the border of AZ/MEXICO is a war zone with good AZ Ranchers dropping like flies, and tourists getting decapitated. (We all know that was exaggeration on her part, she wanted better border control from the Feds. Again, your not dumb , Mizz Ihateyourproduct, and you know she was exaggerating) at this point Granny Ruth from Davenport, still thinks its better in AZ than Florida or Texas (its a dry heat) plus that's all down south not Maricopa County.

3. Your other boyfriend and former boss Thomas is disbarred. For settling personal vendettas through his office. Now Granny Ruth can ignore this, she's not on the board of supervisors for Copa, and isn't having her children's rooms ransacked by nazis. BUT she did keep that last brochure for a resort in California.

4. "Americas Racist Sheriff" is found to be a crook by the DOJ. (You have to be REALLY corrupt for THIS DOJ to figure you out, cuz they STILL haven't figured out that Wall Street is responsible for our current Depression) It's true you BF is a real racist. Do you two discuss your hatred of Latinos while waiting on his "Little Blue Pill" to kick in.

Now Granny Ruth is concerned, "Al, maybe we should go to Texas.....nah, the leadership of AZ will fix this, right" NOPE

5. Wow, going after women and their reproductive organs. How low can AZ sink to now! War on Women?!?!

6. Banning books in Tuscon Schools?!?!

"Hey Al, fuck them crazies in AZ, we are visiting Florida!" says Granny Ruth from Davenport, IA. "Atleast in Florida they only try to suppress our voting and thier ALEC run electric company doesn't charge us a new deposit EVERY YEAR, like AZ's ALEC RUN SRP!"

Listen Ihateyourproduct I dont know if you read the whole piece I wrote and don't care, but the SNOWBIRDS are NOT coming back unless AZ Leadership changes. That is bad for all of us. In this economy, we need those extra millions(face it we gotta pay for Sheriff Jokers $99 million blunder) hopefully you understand something I wrote and will help ALL OF AZ'S INTERESTS AND NOT YOUR OWN.....HOLD THE LEADERSHIP RESPONSIBLE!

I did read the report and I understand the medical jargon used therein, which it appears you do not. The report doesn't really support the accusations contained in your and Mr. Lemons agenda.  Also, since you prefer to dumb it down: don't be such a fucking moron.

Gusta Reza, yes, fractured ribs are a common occurence during chest compressions, especially during elongated sessions of chest compressions during which the patient is non-responsive to the efforts.

You guys can spin it however you want to but Atencio was NOT killed by law enforcement.  Unfortunate that he died: sure.

Furthermore, the toxicology report says there was no meth in his system.

YPS is trying to lead us to the "most obvious or likely" cause of death - meth.

However, the autopsy and toxicology reports do not support that.  They do, however, support the likelihood that he was BEATEN TO DEATH...

Adapt or die. It's your choice. Whine, snivel and place blame on everyone else all you want, but if you don't get off your lazy ass and adapt your "business" will wither and die.
I don't see any stories anywhere that show an increase in winter visitors in Florida, California or Texas. In fact, the inverse is true. There are less winter visitors across the board, which indicates the problem is systematic rather than localized. There are multiple reasons for this to be occurring and I am not of the mind to peg any one reason and lay complete blame. Some of your argument has merit, and I am sure there is a scenario or two that played out exactly the way you portray.

I will comment on one thing you've said, which is very telling. Because a person doesn't agree with the policies of the current administration does not make them racist. Stop being so ignorant.

Now take the colored lenses off and reread what I wrote. Are you condoning any and all attempts to unseat Arpaio regardless of the voracity of each individual claim?

What part of LAW-ENFORCEMENT SUBDUAL is unclear to you? He was tasered and crushed by at least 10 'police officers,' and at least 5 or more of them MCSO shurf deputies. The Atencio family will win a substantial settlement from Maricopa County for Mr. Atencio's wrongful death at the hands of the SS goons the Old Fool employs and Mr. Manning will make ultra bank off this case. Not only is the Atencio family paying him, but the County itself may be responsible for paying him if he wins, which I highly suspect he will. Mr. Manning has won more than $15 million in wrongful death settlements and jury awards for wrongful deaths at the hands of the MCSO shurf and his Gestapo Goons.

I have a great understanding and appreciation of what officers face out on the street daily. I've seen it first hand.

How many officers were standing around? How many were watching on cam? How many stepped in besides the one who told one to stop? After he told the guy to stop though he continued to watch the beating.

Let's be honest here....there were no officers in any danger from Mr. Atencio in that room. If you have a "fact" that shows iotherwise please present it.

If you have talked with so many trainers and done so much research you should have a better understanding of the the myriad of situations faced by officers as well as the quick decision making that is necessary.  You would also be aware of the sometimes (often) limited resources available to officers - especially in circumstances with mentally defective people.  The officers don't have a lot of options.

I don't worry myself with "Command Staff" most of them are as corrupt as the leader....that's why they are "placed" in that position.

Actually, the most likely cause of death was being crushed to death. By all those 'police officers.'

If you think about it, each one weighs about 175 pounds or so. Multilpy that by the number of them that subdued him (10) and you get the amount of weight placed on Mr. Atencio (1,750 lbs, give or take maybe 20 or so pounds.)

Add a few more facts:

He was tazed multiple times, which has been shown repeatedly to contribute to cardiac arrest.

He was at the bottom of a pile of brown that broke many ribs and caused other internal damage, and the autopsy report shows that a contributing factor to his death was that he COULDN'T BREATHE...  This is not surprising.  It's hard to breath with 800 pounds of brown laying on you.

He was left unconscious without medical intervention for a long enough period of time to be brain-dead.  He was dead on that floor.  MCSO made sure he was "revived" in order to have it not appear as an "in custody death".  An artificial heart beat and respiration does not mean a patient is alive.

He should have been hospitalized, not incarcerated.

He would not have died if he had remained standing with his back against the wall and his arms crossed over his chest.  Did he have medical conditions that contributed?  Apparently the answer is yes.  Would those conditions have killed him that night if they weren't helped along with the beating he received.  Uh - that's a negative.

PTCGAZ
PTCGAZ

the most likely cause of death was actually asphyxia. He after all had damage done to his neck due to being put into a choke hold, which cut off the oxygen to his brain. His heart was also stopped possibly due to being tazored several times. Take your pick, he was brain dead either from his heart stopping and his oxygen being cut off, OR his oxygen being cut off from being in a choke hold, take your pick either way. I am not a doctor and I didnt understand all the autopsy report, but IT is very safe to say four things. 1. he died from a heart attack. 2. he had heart disease. 3. he HAD NO DRUGS in his system. 4. He was had severe mental illness and was having an episode while detained. HE NEEDED a goddamn doctor not a fucking beat down that lead to his death.

And you struggle with being an ethical, competent professional. You can't even file a lawsuit correctly, Rachel. You know you're supposed to have EVIDENCE to file the lawsuit and you need to meet the burden of proof to permit the suit to move forward.

Rachel is the disgraced, suspended former Deputy Maricopa County Attorney who, at the direction of her corrupt, mentally sick former boss, disbarred former Maricopa County Attorney Candy Andy Thomas, filed a frivolous bullshit RICO lawsuit that was dismissed 90 days after it was filed. She was charged with 7 ethics violations and was found guilty and her law license was yanked for 6 months and 1 day, which means she must retake her Bar exam. At this point, she has no power, and she's a fat, greasy slob. As I said, I need a half bottle of Absolut Vodka just to look at her... And I don't even drink vodka, usually...
