Im Antonio Dampier Aunt and I know that there is no way my nephew could escape a wagon you are handcuffed and double gated it is no way that this happened the way the police is saying it happened. White men are never killed by police officer during arrest. This has to come to a stop our childrten are being murdered by the police and nothing is being done. Trust me I will not stop at this letter this is just the begining.
Dorothy I knew Antonio and he was no good. This is really funny how this happenned. And even if the cops did this, good for them. Another thug off the streets. I'm sure your crack headed self really didn't care about him anyway.

Dorothy,
I found out that the new paddy wagons used by the city have a padded bar that is pulled down over the arrestee. There is no way in **** that someone can fall out. The police killed him. You've got a lawsuit.

We all know that life is short. But if you think for one min that he fell out of the van trying to get away then I got a bridge I would I like to sell you. First of all the door is lock from the out side second there cuffs on him third it was his birthday so I don't think he was in any shape to run forth he was someone's father. Put your father, son, brother in his place then tell me about waste of taxes and air the main point is when the police picks up someone they are responsible fro that person until there lock up

You are right, the wagons do have a bar that comes down and lays across the prosoners lap, however, it is not secure like a roller coaster. It is mostly there for the prisoner to lean against, and to help them counteract the forces of momentum as the wagon makes turns since the prisoner does not know when the turns are coming. It can easily be slipped under by the prisoner. No wrong doing by the police, just wrong doing by the dead woman beater who violated an order of protection. Damn, I love karma

If he made you the person you are today then all the more reason to criticize him. He failed you. He failed himself. He failed his wife. Your cousin was a complete and utter failure. And you are a punk.
