Three Years Later
This is in the interest of truth, justice and the
Last night, I spoke with a women, Constance
Flaum, whose story, if told only a few years ago, would
seem incredulous. After reading her letter, I do not know how to
begin any commentary about this tragedy. However as we have seen
in incident after incident (Ruby Ridge, Waco, the man shot 41 times in
New York because he pulled a wallet, the kicking and beating of a suspect
in Philadelphia and the kicking and beating of a car jacker in
Miami) of abuse by law enforcement over the last ten
years, her story does seem plausible if not, I hate to say,
probable. I have not flushed out all the details, but
what I have heard so far makes me with weep with her.
This incident happened in Huntington Park,
California in March of 1998. This looks as if this is near the
Los Angeles (Rampart and all that). The man's name was Michael
Arnold. If we take the worst case scenario that this was the most
despicable hombre that ever walked the planet, it is beyond comprehension
that one hundred sixty-five shots were needed to bring
this man down. According to Ms. Flaum her son had never been
in any trouble. And no press coverage! I don't know that should
surprise me, we have a rapist in the Whitehouse and that does not
seem to matter to the press.
The Congressional Black Caucus did at least do a
dog and pony show, which we shall call a "People Killed by Cops tour.
Nothing else. What do you expect from a political hack, like
John Conyers, who was the leader of the parade?
We are living in a Banana Republic.
However, the real purpose of this e-mail is to
gather information about this incident. If anyone who has knowledge about
this shooting, please forward it to me. I like to have an
explanation that would ease my feelings of despair and the
wonderings of just how callous as a people have we
Hang on to your knickers as you read this
Thank you for your interest in the horrible, senseless murder of
When it happened I naively thought that when I could prove the
truth there would be justice, that when the truth was revealed to the "proper
authorities" right would prevail, that base disregard for human life could not
be ignored, nor tolerated.
Now, almost three year later, it's as if my
Son was murdered in the realm of the invisible, and my cries for truth and
justice are screamed with a mute voice. I was killed with my sweet Son and woke
up in hell.
I don't know what your interest is in the killing of my son,
I am just very grateful that you care. I know just what you mean about too many
of the groups. They are all good people, trying to right things and effect
change, but most of them are so focused and single-minded on their own good work
that they miss the big picture.
Groups that are aware of the details of my son's killing march, and protest, and
decry police brutality, but NEVER site the most obvious example,i.e. the only
citizen in the history of this country ever shot so many times by the police-
165 times-Michael Arnold.
The killing of Michael Arnold is sadly the only
one with the full potential to be the key that will open Pandora's
The sheer numbers alone are staggering: According to the police
report there were between 70-80 unites on the scene with at least seven agencies
represented. That is a total of 140 to160 uniformed cops on the scene with 22
officer from three different agencies admittedly firing in excess of 250 rounds
into a quiet,sleeping community,many of which penetrated through the walls of
family homes, while 165 bullets shattered EVERY bone in Michael's body, then
ripped off all of the flesh from those shattered bones.
Then there are
the facts of forensic evidence, Expert findings and available testimony, and the
testimony of a score of independent eye-witnesses that Michael was
unarmed, in compliance, and with his empty hands in the air when the police
Michael Arnold was a good, law-abiding citizen who had never
been in trouble, or done a bad thing in his life. He was a precious and loving
son, an adored big brother, a valued friend, and honored member of his
community, a philanthropist and composer of beautiful music who collected
stuffed animals and carried his old blind dog around in his arms.A good,sweet
man who walked through life softly.
How did such a man die this unlikely,
ignoble death at the hands of the police? This question has been asked and
probed by experts and they have come to the conclusion that there are only
two possible answers:
2-the thrill of the kill
(in the soul-chilling words of LAPD Officer Mark Flashman in a Ch. .2 news
interview on Feb.22'1999, "There is no greater thrill in life than hunting man.
Once you have done that you never want to do anything else!"
God help us
This case is also the definitive case because it crosses
all boundaries and brings home as no other police shooting can that Police
Brutality and the use of Deadly Force is no respecter of class, race or
Michael Arnold was a successful, rich, blond, blue-eyed
businessman. The shooters were white, black, Hispanic and Asian,male and
female.My son is DEAD proof that absolutely NO ONE is safe in this insane
lawless America of today, making his murder the potential wake-up call this
country needs if we are to go into the future as a free people.
there is the HUGE cover-up by the media, and the farce of our Judicial
No law firm would take my case because under law I have no
"standing" because I experienced no financial loss by the death of my son so, I
took it to court myself "pro per" and hung in for a year and a half before it
was finally dismiss in Federal Court by "The Right Honorable A Howard Matz" .
Why? Not because the police were innocent but because of Civil Procedure, and me
without a de-coder ring.
Larry, I have hard, indisputable evidence
to prove that my son was innocent of any crime, that he we unarmed, and that the
crime against him was nothing less than cold-blooded murder, and the cover-up
goes all the way to Washington D.C.
I look forward to receiving the
exciting info you told me about. God Bless you and God Save us
