David Snyder talks about Friday's Roseland town council meeting
WNDU News
Wednesday September 19, 2007
Roseland town council member David Snyder is calling for the resignation of a town marshal after a fight at Friday night's meeting.
Snyder says while he was being arrested, he became a victim of police brutality.
He was released from jail Saturday afternoon, when a felony charge of battery of a police officer was dropped.
The St. Joseph County prosecutor's office reviewed the police reports Saturday morning, dropped that charge but left two misdemeanor charges. That meant he could bond out of jail. Now he’s recovering at home.
On that home, signs calling for the Snyders to leave still remain after vandalism months ago, and with those it may be a surprise to learn that some are actually "siding with the Snyders."
But a wndu.com poll of close to four thousand people shows that more than half of the people thought town police went too far during the arrest.
David Snyder said,“I'm a victim of a rogue cop a cop that should no longer be wearing a badge and he should no longer be on the streets. He is a danger to society.
There were only two real witnesses to the fight.
Snyder who was kicked out of the meeting who says,“I’m walking out of the conference room and Jack is breathing down my back and somebody yells at me to turn around and look at them. And I say to Jack ‘Oh the bully is still whatever’ and he is just goes ballistic. Just ballistic and he shoves me shoves me through the door. I pass out and come to and he is pounding on me.”
The other witness was Marshal Jack Tiller. NewsCenter 16 tried talking to him, but his wife answered the door.
When we asked for his side of the story, she responded “We'll you guys have smeared his name enough thank you.” And added the video does not show all that happened.
Some say, such as council member Ted Penn who declined an on camera interview said in the time chaos erupted, David got a punch in.
But David claims that’s not the case and he is considering a lawsuit against the town.
“I think that when someone is victimized and brutalized by a police officer that is a good potential,” Snyder added.”
Snyder says he will have to appear in court in October.
Be sure to check back with wndu.com and NewsCenter 16 for more on this developing story.
Watch the video to see for yourself what happened in Roseland. Be sure to leave your comments on what you think about the latest rumble in Roseland.

I saw the video of the incident on Youtube and thought it was a very worrying example that democracy is on the rocks in small town USA. A bullying town marshal with thuggish police officers is a poor example to set for the world.
If I ever book a holiday in the USA, please shoot me.

Whether David Snyder is nice or a jerk isn't the issue. He was pounded in the head by a cop when he was already on the ground and not moving. Is that Jack Tiller's voice asking Snyder if he "fell"? What a thug. He obviously didn't realize that it was caught on tape.... Cops have the right under most use-of-force policies to use any "non-lethal" force on anybody who is not fully cooperating with being arrested. That includes hands (closed), batons, pepper spray, and Taser. Anybody who is surprised hasn't check that out with their local police force. Ask them.... surprise.

If you look at the video you can see in the reflection on the glass that the officer pushed him through the front door (possible snyder helped). Snyder had no chance to throw a punch. Probably somethning verbal that pissed off the marshal.(Just my opinion)

Yeah Snyder helped with his head, he was slammed through the door head first and then into the ground knocking him unconscious and then Tiller started punching him in the face and back of the head.

(SBT24/7News) St. Joseph County Prosecutor Michael Dvorak announced Wednesday that he will ask a grand jury to review the Sept. 14 incident involving Roseland Town Council member David Snyder and Town Marshal Jack Tiller.

Dvorak revealed his plans on the eve of what was scheduled to be Snyder’s initial appearance in Superior Court on Thursday.

Snyder said he plans to appear to enter a plea of not guilty.

He should be notified of the prosecutor’s plans and that no charges are on file.

“The investigation involves all parties involved in the incident,” Dvorak said when asked if Tiller’s conduct, as well as Snyder’s, will be under scrutiny.

“Doesn’t Mr. Dvorak know Indiana law? He doesn’t need a grand jury to bring charges against anyone,” Snyder said by phone Wednesday.

“The videotape of the Sept. 14 incident is very clear about what happened and who was in the wrong,” Snyder said in a prepared statement. He was referring to the widely circulated footage of the incident posted on the Internet.

The prosecutor will present evidence about the matter beginning Dec. 18 to six grand jurors whose job will be to evaluate the information and determine whether criminal charges should be brought against anyone, according to Dvorak.

The grand jury also may decide no charges are warranted, which is called a “no bill.”

Whether or not the grand jury will view the Sept. 14 video of the encounter between Snyder and Tiller was not addressed by Dvorak, who said he limited his comments because of state laws regarding grand juries.

Snyder was facing potential misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct after his arrest Sept. 14 when Snyder was ejected from a Town Council meeting.

As Snyder was leaving Town Hall, there was an encounter involving him and Tiller.

I live very close to Roseland and have followed this "drama" almost from the time Dorothy- who was town President, and David- who was a counsilman married. After they married they made up a two thirds majority of town counsil. Those people did so many unbelievable and unjust things that people just hate them now. The officer is the same officer that arrested and removed others and the request of the Snyders. What goes around, comes around. I think everyone should read all of the info from start to finish about the Snyders and they would see that David is not so innocent. His character is also not of good quality. What type of person trys not to pay ANY support to their children- one that is handicap and incapable of living alone? To the tune of owing $100,000+? I welcome your comments because I am interested to know others point of view.

David is not so innocent?
the fact that he got beat up doesnt erase his past
did you witness any events where others were abused?
did you filled a complain?
he should pay for his actions and so the police who abused of his position
does clinton deserve to be punish for what he did at youth?
i think he was forgiven for everything and looks like everybody likes people taking their power over the limits
you all deserve the present goverment with all the issues such as "voting" and "fredom of speach"

Wrong Wrong Wrong jcarey. David Snyder paid $32,000 dollars in child support in 2007 and thousands of dollars the years before that. You are listening to a hate cult that want to control Roseland and they are willing to tell any lie to do that. That Snyders are good people, and history will show that the mess of Roseland was not their fault. Yes, what goes around will come around, and the Snyders will be justified.
