Another victim of O’Bama’s para-military occupation forces……and he ain’t even black!
HOUSTON (FOX 26) – Chad Chadwick broke not a single law, but that didn’t protect him from being shot, stun grenade, Tased, brutally beaten by a SWAT team and then charged with six criminal offenses including felony assault on a police officer.
It took three years, his life savings and the blessing of justice minded juries to finally clear his name and cast serious doubt on the method and motives of law enforcement in Ft. Bend County.
“They came in did what they did, figured out that they messed up and now they are doing everything they can to cover it up. They treated a normal American citizen like an animal. It’s not right,” said Chadwick.
Chad’s lawyer, former U.S. Attorney Mervyn Mosbacker took it further.
“I think the police made a mistake in the way they responded and then they tried to cover up that mistake essentially,” said Mosbacker.
Tuesday Fox 26 revealed how a simple 2011 welfare check by Missouri City Police on a sleeping Chadwick turned into a brutal display of excessive force and what Chad contends was a calculated effort by prosecutors to justify a botched home invasion.
The story has sparked an outpouring of support, none more important to Chadwick, than that received from a daughter living hundreds of miles away.
“I got the most amazing response and she told me how proud she was. This is helping, this is definitely helping,” said Chadwick.
It has been a battle that Chadwick couldn’t have waged without the uncommon integrity of his employer, who not only believed the longtime energy industry manager’s account of events, but also actively aided the effort to see justice prevail.
“This man instead of firing me said, ‘When I hired you, I hired you into a family’. He stood by that. I don’t think he understands what family means to me because I didn’t have any growing up,” said Chadwick.
“Had he not given men the support he has, I would definitely be in prison right now. I would not have been able to afford to defend myself,” added Chadwick.
Chadwick is seeking accountability from those who he believes wronged him in Federal Court.
