We have all heard about the cases involving police brutality in the events of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, but what about the case from 2013 of Charles Eimers?
A case of particular interest, this isn’t one that circulated through the mainstream media. Even though it has all the attributes of those surrounding the cases of Garner, Brown, and Tamir Rice amongst many others, it is a case that is relatively unheard of.
The horrific unfolding of what can only be described as a bungling of error after error, began in Florida on Thanksgiving, 2013, when Eimers was pursued by a Florida PD car for a traffic violation. However, the pursuit was unauthorized as there wasn’t a continual operation of lights and sirens. Eimers initially sped off but pulled to one side at the beach where the official story begins to fall apart.
Multiple witnesses have accounted a man (Eimers) getting out of his car with his hands in the air, obedient for the police. But it isn’t how the arresting police recalled the incident involving the 61 year old father. They stated Eimers got out of the car and collapsed unconscious on the sand, contrary to the witness reports that were never presented in court. Witness accounts also state that Eimers was also subject to a Taser to the back of the neck and chest for up to 6 minutes, where they could see his legs convulse. The police (all ten of them) disagree. They [the police] then rolled him over to commence CPR.
The official line is that Eimers collapsed unconscious, and though his face was caked in sand with blood coming from his ears, according to one witness account, the police say Eimers was never face down in the sand. 
Eimers spent the last week of his life unconscious in a hospital bed until his son had to make the decision to switch off his life support. But the questionable case doesn’t stop here. Eimers’s son, Treavor requested for an autopsy to be conducted. It did occur, but not after the police quickly had the body transported to the funeral home with a request for cremation. It was only because of a delay in conducting a timely cremation by the funeral home by seven days, that an autopsy was finally carried out. The results were suspect: ten broken ribs, injury around both wrists and a cardiac event officially ruled out.
In the outcome ruled by a Grand Jury, the police involved were never indicted. It was said there was no probable evidence, though, reportedly, most never reached inside the court room. Two officers, Gary Lee Lovette and Henry del Valle received formal disciplinary action within the police department, mainly on the basis of inappropriate remarks at the scene where Lovette was overheard stating “I dropped like a f**king bomb on his [Eimers] head.”
The tragic unfolding of police brutality seems to be a never ending story of one case after another. It’s important to note that these cases aren’t limited to one specific background of heritage, they are limited to those unfortunate enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. No one is immune.
