Ernest "Marty" Atencio
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office tells New Times that it plans to release surveillance video of Ernest "Marty" Atencio getting tased while being booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail some time in the next 48 hours.

Atencio died yesterday afternoon after spending several days on life support at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix after getting tased by MCSO detention officers early Friday morning.

Click here to see our coverage of the MCSO's tasing of Atencio.


Sheriff Joe Arpaio refused to discuss the Atencio death this afternoon at a press conference at the MCSO's west Phoenix training facility. A spokesman for the Sheriff's Office says a written statement will be released with the video.

We'll be sure to post the video as soon as it's made available.

When you hear: "He died in a struggle with the police", it usually means death due to suffocation, aka restraint asphyxia, a well-known, easily preventable, LEO-associated, cause of death. These restraint deaths will continue until citizens demand criminal prosecution of LEOs. Journalists should stop focusing on the Taser issue and concentrate on this far more  important mechanism.

Colorado police should learn Wyoming’s lesson - The SCOTUS agrees with a lower court that death in restraint due to suffocation is unconstitutional.  http://bit.ly/q0Euds

To all who posted links to videos thanks. I watched both videos. The videos released were edited. The worst part of the whole thing is once they get him in the "safe cell" he was already unconscious. Yet NOT one of those cowardly fucks hiding behind badges and tazers bothered to even see if he was ok, and then they left him to die in the cell. What pieces of shit. BTW 10 V 1? what are the odds for the one man? What about when all 10 have Tazers?

RIP Marty, My heart goes out to all the people who loved and knew him.  He did not deserve what happened to him.  I only hope that his death wasn't in vane and that something will finally be done, to put an end to the abuse that goes on in Arapaio's jails.

Same old MO for MCSO

Edit tapes for the public to see, claim they did nothing wrong, conduct their own investigation and find no one to blame.

Been there and done that with MCSO... I have copies of the tapes they edited on my situation where they cut out what the witness and the attacker said and then lied about not having the audio tape back up to compare the video's too.

The audio tapes MCSO said just happened to get destroyed and all that was left was their edited video that was missing chunks of times.

Same old MO for MCSO...

all I can say is I trust the Joke about as much as how far I could throw him with one arm. Considering he's a fat piece of shit that's not very far at all.

"Some of our viewers might find this disturbing..."  let me raise my hand on that one. I didn't know Marty and I can't imagine how those who knew him and those who loved him felt after watching this video.  My heart goes out to all of you. Arpaio had to see this video before he played his games this week with the media, all the while having seen what was done to this man and completely keeping his mouth shut about it. How can anyone watching that video justify that in the end that man died? I expected him to be more agitated and aggressive and couldn't justify it for those reasons, but to see him stand up against a wall and fold his arms and then be attacked by so many, and then tasered on top of it, and the last part of the video - watching them walk away as he lay there dieing is heart wrenching.

5:27 and I just viewed it at FOX 10 PHXhttp://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dp...I guess the 'reporter' from NT was at Happy Hour.

or maybe he is in disbelief at how little the video actually shows? I think it was edited at least 3 times, maybe more.. like ya know where whole blocks of what happened disappeared.

On ch 12 they said that MCSO released 8 hrs of video from 26 different cameras.  They want to hide what happened in a pile of stuff that has nothing to do with the event.

yeah I watched. and they probably did. I have a feeling they wanted to do that to distract people from their editing.

I watched that video. The other one was def edited. The one on ch12 showed more.

I posted a link to the ch 12 version.  Seems from when he was placed on the floor of the cell and had the taser shined on him, he didn't move for 9 minutes, and then the came in to try and bring him back to life.

I agree it looks very edited. They talked about his unstable walk, but I didn't see that, no one around him looked fearful as he got out of the van. What I didn't see is anyone in imminent danger from this man, he was not punching, kicking, hitting, etc. He was killed because he didn't obey a command? What they did show was disturbing and seeing him at the point where they still had a taser shining on him as he lay looking lifeless on the floor and they all just walked away.

Well, it's been 48 hours, and it's 4pm on the Friday before a long holiday weekend.  And no tape...

they edited the shit out of it. look at the link below...

IT's very confusing to me as to what was going on.Apparently he was tazered at least three times and maybe more.

We're getting close to that 48 hours, and MCSO has had a week to edit out (or lose) the parts they don't want the public to see...

After waiting a week and wanting to see what happend...how obvious is it that this tape won't be the same as recorded a week ago?  Have they even released it to the Phoenix police for their investigation yet?  From what I've heard the first 48 hours is critical to an investigation.  I think we're heading into 168 hours...

It's Friday morning. The 48 Hours story is about to expire. MCSO needs to make a move today or it's reputation will be further questioned.

YPS, I hope you're advising Sheridan he needs to move on this.

You are right David,this is their hope,that no one will be paying attention. Problem for them is, people have & will be paying attention.

Come on Coz,it takes time to properly doctor a tape,although one would think that,as many times as the corrupt criminal Piehole has had it done,they would have it down to a science.

The presumption of innocence is something that the criminal justice system has to live with.  Individuals are perfectly free to take the available evidence and come to their own conclusion without waiting for some court case to come to its own conclusion.

 Pigs have always been violent assholes who beat long haird hippies and people on the streets and in jail and prison so  this story is nothing new to me.I remember a mexican guy getting beat to death in Houston Texas around 1977 then His body was thrown face down in the bayou with his hands tied behind his back where he finally drowned. and the local Harris county Houston Texas Pigs did this to the guy for nothing. most pigs on the streets are mentally insecure rednecks with a little man complex. so they become Pigs to compansate on their lack of real manhood.

david saint

agreed jew...or they got beat up in high school and are exacting revenge day by day...lol

david saint

ive seen and heard first hand what goes down in the jails..how i know is not important, just know that its fact that they ALLOW other inmates to nearly beat to death inmates the guards just dont like (one was in the news months prior for killing another one, and under the same guards watch he nearly killed another...while in a lock down part of the jail..bs), and the Norberg case was just an atrocious example of how murders of inmates is not only ignored, but condoned! Want more proof? As Joe why he has never filed a slander suit against the creater of Arpaio.com, which details the many deaths in the jails...im sure  the sue happy sheriff would have went after him if it werent true, yet he has done nothing..wonder why. I could be impatial, if it hadnt become an MO over at MCSO to hide and destroy evidence in deaths at the jails EVERYTIME in the past.  Furthermore, why should i believe MCSO would conduct a fair and impartial investigation when they NEVER investigate their own (unless caught by another LEA first..then their hand is forced), especially when it comes to the deaths...doesnt that strike you as odd at the very least that violent deaths in the jails have gone univestigated? Or does law and order not really mean shit to you, just the issue of immigration?

lol i fail to see how this is even an issue..a man was detained in the jail, he was tased multiple times, and now he is dead..stupid us for daring to want the truth!?! Maybe we should just stick our heads back in the sand like you two apparently have?
