Honor Student Beaten Who Had Her Teeth Knocked Out by Cops Still Faces 3 – 5 Yrs in Prison

wpowpowopwBy Yolanda Spivey

Gabby Calhoun is settling down and doing quite well in her first year at Wiley College in Marshall Texas.  She’s maintaining a 4.0 grade point average despite being stressed out over her impending court date to fight charges that she assaulted a police officer.

Just to quickly recap her story, Gabby is an honor student who was brutally beaten by Bloomington IL police officers back in June.  She was hit in the face with a night stick by a female officer, which knocked out her teeth.  She was choked unconscious and when she came to, she was forced to walk across a parking lot full of people with her naked chest exposed.  She suffered a concussion and had to spend 2 days in jail with limited medical attention.  Since then she had to have emergency dental re-construction surgery and is still left with bruises over her body.

Now, Gabby is in another fight—she is facing two felony charges that might send her to jail for 3-5 years.  She has never been in trouble before and she is in desperate need of your help.

Friends and family have been actively trying to raise funds for Gabby’s legal defense fund.  Most recently, they have set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ account where the public can donate towards her legal fees.   http://www.gofundme.com/4bndxs

Also Gabby is having a prayer breakfast on November 16th at 10am at Wiley College.  There is a $20 donation for those who would like to attend.  The address is:

Wiley College/ Pemberton Dining Room

711 Wiley Ave

Marshall TX 65760

 

Gabby states, “I recently lost my attorney for not being able to pay the fee due. Please help me fight for justice.”

Her trial begins on November 27th 2013.  She is asking that the public donate any amount they can.

  1. I WOULD LIKE TO HELP.TELL ME WHAT TO DO? I STILL WISH YOU ALL THE BEST IN GETTING THROUGH YOU LAW SUIT CASE. EMAIL ME SOMETHING BACK.

  2. This happen in Illinois. Its a shame and I would like the story from the begining!

  3. I wish her the best and will stand in prayer. I wonder if she has considered reaching out to their local NAACP branch to possibly get some free legal assistance?

  4. what caused the beaten??

  5. She needs to put her story on change.org

    Tell her that!

  6. A Police? Office who can not contain an 18 year old GIRL is probably in the wrong job.

    YOU–Roland DwayneandTammy Doingitbetter Roland–should do a google search and read the entire story. I find your comment to be strange…

  7. I just donated. If we don’t stand for something, we will fall for anything!! African-American’s Unite, the time is NOW for Our Children need Protection.!! This young lady caught a beat down by a female officer that clearly used excessive physical force. If you can, help and don’t forget this could’ve been your child. For the love of humanity, let’s show our humanity and not the garbage some of these stinking officers of the law think we are!!! ~♥♡♥~ Peace.

  8. Walk in a cop’s shoes.

    • Walk in the cops shoes bullsh@t lady are you kidding me if you would read the d**n story you would not have said that she did nothing wrong it’s the cop that messed up not the girl.

  9. As always, the poloce are the gansters, in uniforms. If they are not killing African-Americans, they are inventing ways to humiliate us and making sure we go to prison, for nothing more than their wrong doing. She did nothing to cause her to be hit by a police. This is all in response to having a African American President, that this racist society just can not except even though this is 2013. The gansters, in uniform and badges, are not here to protect us but to destroy ours lives, (AFRICAN AMERICAN) if it had been a white girl, they would have driven her home in a limno, not their car. I will send money to her to help with her defense.

  10. I wish the best for her, however, I’m not sure she can beat this.. at best probation and community time if not jail time..there’s video showing the student engaging with the police, fighting the police..when she claim he didn’t. So if she right out lied as her sworn statement, its the mercy of the court and without a lawyer she’s toast up against the PD involved who will have lawyers.

    • so the cop delivers a beat-down on her and she shouldn’t do anything to defend herself…I guess you’re still singing, ‘we shall overcome’ huh?!?

  11. What I don’t understand is that whenever there is critical situations such as this where are the Black attorney’s and Judges that have made it and are out seeking justice and equality; and all of the so-called civil rights activist(no dis-respect intended towards anyone). Look into her story and give back as we are always stating but are never actually seeing the portions of giving back that truly matters. Not saying that going back to your neighborhood and erecting a center in your name is not great but this young lady needs the help of the Black men and women of power. Where are the leaders of Texas? the T.D. Jakes, the Emmitt Smiths, and all of the other prominent people of Texas and of Hollywood? Truly this is a justifiable cause! Good luck young Lady and God will avenge your wrong doing.

  12. happens all the time…her story just happens to get national attention.

  13. Mayor: Video of fight supports cops’ claim – Pantagraph.com
    http://www.pantagraph.com/…video…/article_81e5d7da-ea49-11e2-aa65-001a..

    I believe bad things happen all the time but it is important that we do research all everything. I have not seen this video, but it is listed here and it may or may not be true. sorry for the young lady, she seems to be a nice person.

  14. I’m a little confused here in Illinois courts don’t allow attorneys to quit felony cases on payment issues the county simply takes over payment @ the public defenders rate. I heard the attorney submitted papers of resignation after catching her in too many lies once he received the documentations of “disclosure”. Many of the patrons have testified that she was combative & uncooperative so I’ve heard

  15. The girl’s name is Gabriella, not Gabby. When the cops escorted her friend out of the Wendy’s she interfered by grabbing the friend and the female cop pulled her back and she became aggressive with the cop. She should have stayed out of that situation. When cops are escorting people away from the scene or making arrests you don’t approach you stand back, or contact a relative or friend of that person and let them know whats going on.

    • CORRECT! I SUSPECTED THE STORY WAS FULL OF HALF TRUTHS. WE MUST STOP SUPPORTING THE GUILTY. SHE NEEDS TO LEARN THAT SHE COMMITTED A CRIME. IT SEEMS AN A STUDENT WOULD HAVE COMMON SENSE TO KNOW THAT.

  16. The Mayor (so) he said seen the video and he was going to push as hard as he could to release it..WHAT HAPPEN? its been 6 months since June there is no video..i cant stand you all with these negative comments..if people were concerned about what was going on everybody’s story would be national Gabriella just happen to make her’s because she know’s she innocent. Im sure nobody would put themselves in a situation to go against something if what their saying isn’t true..the truth will come out sooner or later! #Justice For Gabby Calhoun

  17. Maybe, this young lady will have learn what to do the hard way. Our young people are sometime, out of control themselves. I pray this is not the case in this instant.A child should be schooled on the black protocol, when dealing with law enforcement. In retrospect many a lesson can be learned. It is so easy to beat up or dead “right”.Getting beat up gives her another chance. We pray the Judge show mercuy,with probation.

    • she probably thought odrama, sharpton, and all the blk world would get involved, and march for her like they did trayvon!

      she probably thought that since the entire black world went nuts over chris brown defending himself against a crazed woman that her beatdown would get the same kind of outcry.

      this is what happens when you send young people the wrong msg. u create more victims.

  18. I’m as Hot as Fish Grease over this Story or Any Story where a Beautiful & Smart Blackwoman is Victimized by crackers & all these Scary a*s Negroes doing nothing to Protect & Respect Our Black Family which has been under Attack Since the 1970′s! It’s been a Full-Court Press on Black Power & Black Organization’s since about 1964-65! It was called COINTELPRO Dummy! Tell me how you feel as a Man a Blackman & seeing a Sister treated like this & your not even Concerned? Your not even a Man! Your just a Two Ball b***h! Man up & stand up Blackman be ready to die to Protect this Blackwoman the Mother of us & our Sister! I’m tired of these Enemies you love them,but I pray for their Removal which is coming soon & it will be a Shock to you Sambo! Yahsirboss

  19. She’s about to get paid!..

  20. Where are black leaders to help this child. This seem to be open season on young blacks. There is no excuse fir excessive force. Someone should examine the ones approving psychological evaluations.

    • Oh yeah it is open season BECAUSE EVERY RACE IN THE WORLD KNOWS THAT AMERICAN NEGROES ARE SELFISH AND AS LONG AS YOU DONT ATTACK THEM PERSONALLY, THEY WILL NEVER STAND UP FOR ANYONE ELSE IN THEIR RACE – NOT EVEN THE YOUTH IN THE COMMUNITY.

      INSTEAD OF ALL THESE BLACK PREACHERS RUNNING AROUND WRITING BOOKS, MAKING MOVIES, AND MONEY GRUBBING, THEY SHOULD HAVE PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD, AND MADE A STRONG STANCE FOR GOD, AND STOOD UP TO THE DRUG CARTELS.

  21. Move to London, it was great looking Black men and the cops don’t have GUNS

  22. Eighteen years old and the punk a*s cops could not handle the situation without beating this child with a night stick? What kind of chicken hearted b*****s do they have in Ill. as cops? She has never been in trouble before and carries a 4.0, there is something wrong with this picture, those in charge had better start questioning their boys and girls in Blue, maybe this is a situation for the feds to investigate! Is there not a #1 law firm that will take this case on as pro bono? This young lady needs to continue her education, not end up in jail!

  23. NOW HOW IN THE h**l CAN BLACKWOMEN DATE INTERRACIALY TO A RACIST WHITEBOY WHEN HE CAN GET
    AWAY WITH RAPEING YOUR DAUGHTER MOTHER,OR SISTER IN FRONT OF YOU WITH WITNESSES.
    THESE BASTARDS WONT PROTECT YOU,ESPECIALLY IF A THUG WALK UP ON HIM. DO YOU REALLY THINK
    A WHITEBOY WILL FIGHT FOR A FEMALE N..GER,IF CONFRONTED BY MALE N..GER,.IF HE HATE BLACKMEN
    HE WIL HATE HIS BIRACIAL BLACK SON. MY ADVICE TO BLACKWOMEN IS IF HE IS NOT RACIST LIKE
    ROBIN THICKE THAT HAVE BLACKMALE VERIFIABLE FRIENDS AND IS KOOL WITH THE SISTERS,YOU MIGHT
    HAVE A RACIST PYSCOPATH THAT IS READY TO HURT YOU AT ANY MOMENT.

  24. If anyone knows this woman, please fwd and ask her to check out Karl Lentz Uncommonlaw blogtalk radio show for the real law http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/talkCast.jsp?masterId=127469&cmd=tc

    Mr. Lentz is ‘not’ a lawyer and does ‘not’ give legal advice.

    This woman needs to fire her attorney immediately, because an attorney works for a bar association which directly works with the court of whatever state they are doing business from and all attorneys can never ever try to win your case against state government agencies or agents. Anyone who hires a lawyer is deemed by the court as ‘incompetent’ to represent themselves, this the truth and how they look at people who do hire a attorney. Fire your lawyer ‘now’ woman!

    This woman needs to express herself ‘at’ a open court and ask exactly who made the complaint (all complaints must have proof of factual evidence relative to the charge(s)) against her, did she injure this man or woman, and can they appear in court to testify (plaintiff ‘must’ appear) if they believe they have been wronged. If she doesn’t listen to Mr. Lentz or see curiosity in what I have just entertained here, she is going to prison, not joking.

    For everyone else who is interested in learning ‘real law’, check out the link I have submitted here. I recommend listening to the most recent show Karl Lentz has uploaded, and contact him for help.

    Disclaimer; this is ‘not’ legal advice and I hold ‘no’ legal or lawful liability for any man or woman who reads and act upon the words I have entertained here.

  25. I pray that people who don’t know anything about the case would be quiet..@faror and Devon…..if you don’t know the facts..then your opinion is obsolete. And you guys definitely don’t!!!! …this is a support page….
    Not guess at the fact page…

  26. Reading through the comments I decided to add my two cents. First, Texas isn’t the only state with cops that enjoy harming citizens and secondly, you do not have to be black to be on the receiving end of police brutality! I found it to be disgusting that a Seattle cop could shoot and kill a woodworker who was also hard of hearing and have the shooting found to be “justified”..nothing justified about it! It seems that no matter where you live or what the color of your skin is, YOU TOO can be brutalized by a cop and the cop will get away with it1

  27. I actually have family member on the Illinois State University Police Dept. & he says their is a great probability that she will be convicted because of the testimony of the other Restaraunt patrons “she acted a fool) & her friends & her attorney submitted papers to resign as counsel because he caught her in too many lies

    • WHEN NEGROES TALK ALL THIS RACIAL HATRED LIKE ON THIS WEBSITE THE CHILDREN ARE LISTENING.

      WHEN NEGROES TALK VIOLENCE AS A REACTION TO EVERY SLIGHT, THE CHILDREN ARE LISTENING.

      SO IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE GROWN OLD NEGROES WHO REGULARLY BRAGS ABOUT WHAT YOU GONE DO, AT EVERY TURN, NO MATTER HOW SMALL THE INSULT, THIS IS WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOUR CHILD.

      TEACH YOUR CHILDREN TO BE:

      ASSERTIVE, NOT AGGRESSIVE
      VIOLENCE IS A LAST RESORT, ONLY TO DEFEND YOURSELF IF THE POLICE ARE NOT THERE
      REPORT BULLYS
      ASSIST OTHERS BEING BULLIED, EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND OR FAMILY
      BE KIND
      BE SLOW TO ACT
      BE HUMBLE
      BE RESPECTFUL OF THE LAW AND ALL AUTHORITY FIGURES

      IT IS JUST THAT SIMPLE.
