Please, dear God, don't blow that money on a lawyer. You will find plenty of great lawyers who will work on a contingency if your civil rights case is strong, because you can win a $100K+ judgment and give the lawyer a huge fraction, like half after you win. If your case is not strong (eg, if the DA really has a solid gun charge on Ramsey), then just cut your losses and avoid trying this in the courts. Instead, HIRE AN EXPERIENCED FULL-TIME ORGANIZER who has a track record of successfully changing state and local statutes, as well as the skills to continue to fund-raise to sustain his/her own position for the coming 3-5 years -- time that you are easily going to need to changes these laws. This is no weekend hobby. This takes a sustained, full-time effort for the long haul, to actually win these changes. You must plan way ahead if you want to see victory. Good luck.
I can't believe that this is still hanging around Ramsey's neck. Besides defending him, I hope you can find a Pro Bono lawyer to sue for damages--loss of income, etc. If he hadn't had the nerve to video the death of Mr. Garner, he wouldn't have gone through this mess. The NYPD isn't fooling anyone! Even their supporters know what is going on but stay silent to protect them regardless of consequences to Garner's family, Ramsey and his family. Protect and Serve.......WHO?
Ramsey Orta is a hero and we have to all stand with him. Let us try to do an even better job of publicizing protest actions defending Ramsey. People all over the city would like to attend if they only knew about the actions. The actions need to be large and send a powerful message that we want Daniel Pantaleo prosecuted for first degree manslaughter, Justin Damico and the other cops who participated charged with felony murder, and Patrich Lynch and William Bratton prosecuted for obstruction of justice and all of these men convicted and sentenced. They need to be an example that we are not going to tolerate cop killers!!
The police is provoking a race war knowing we can't win. That's when the real massacre will begin.
Not to worry....we got your backs ! First sign of trouble please let me know.
REMINDER - Organize NOW To DEFEAT DA Daniel Donovan for CONGRESS. Do NOT Let Him Win As The Polls Have Him Being Elected. STOP DONOVAN FROM DOING MORE HARM TO OUR NATION!
Michael Schwartz...thank you brother! $800 wow!
Some people are on here trying to give English lessons, correct you, or take this opportunity to say negative things about you. Please ignore them. You are my hero. We all owe you for your courageous deed. You are an example of how using your rights and standing up to the injustices of the system can reach far and wide. THANK YOU!!!
I do support you, but can you explain to me what these words mean? "to stand by him threw his ugly against NYPD and this corrupt system" - I think you mean "through" but the rest of the sentence is confusing.
I hope he can turn around and sue the police department.He did nothing wrong.If this stuff continues It wouldn't surprise me if a war breaks out in our own country against the police and the blacks and the police have themselves to blame
I hope a large number of people show up May 28th to support this brave young man. Many blessing to you and your family Mr. Orta.
Welcome Ramsey, and thanks for your courage in the Eric Garner case.
Welcome home, its where you belong. America loves you and what you did. Your a brave young man and PLEASE stand strong , don't be afraid of being who you are. I lost my son 11 months ago at the hands of police, we are fighting the same fight as Erics family and I could only wish I had somebody like you in our corner that filmed it. your a true hero in my eyes.....big hugs and much love to you!
Hero! Glad you are out and safe at home, my prayers are with you, stay strong, sir!
Glad to hear that Ramsey is home and safe. We need more like him who has compassion for JUSTICE and HUMAN life as he has shown.
You know, This was the right thing to do, and to Judge someone by thier past actions does that make them the person they are today, are any of us perfect. Did we do thing. in our past we shouldnt have.. sure.. who are we to JUDGE ANYONE, so take this brave corageous act he did and maybe it changed him for the better, so tired of people judging others..
Btw, I am happy to have supported you here, to have been a part of your crusade to expose the NYPDs obvious illegal atrocities and activities. Fight on!!!
Happy you are home. I hope this support places you on a path of positivity in your life going forward. NY life is tough on us at times. There is more out there. Write a book. Continue telling your story. I wish my campaign for my business start up receives a fraction of this assistance. Much luck.
