Ryan Dubiel Wiki – Ryan Dubiel Bio
Ryan Dubiel, 31, pulled out his pepper spray as the men were perched on the steps and sprayed directly on their faces, saying, ‘You guys want to play? Do you want to play games, huh?
A policeman in New Jersey has been charged with assault after using pepper spray on a group of young black men sitting on the porch of a house. Dubiel had been called to the street in Woodlynne on June 4 after a search report was made. He asked the group of young men their names, and some refused to tell him.
Ryan Dubiel Incident & Video
Ryan Dubiel’s body-camera shows the moment he sprayed pepper spray into the face of a young black man sitting on the steps of a house in Woodlynne, New Jersey, on June 4
‘We saw it on the internet and things like that. But we never thought it would happen to us, ‘said James Horn, one of the 16-year-olds. Horn said he was hanging out with friends last Thursday when officers approached. A 911 call issued by the Camden County District Attorney relates to a property owner complaining about a group of teenagers hanging around and smoking marijuana.
‘Officer walked up talking about “we have a call for marijuana,” but nobody had marijuana on them,’ the teenager said.
After about two minutes, an officer tells a young man who is sitting on the porch looking at his phone to put his hands behind his back.
The young man says he’s texting his brother.
‘My friend said he was going to call his brother and the officer said no,’ said Horn.
‘But his brother is his guardian so he said he was going to call him anyway.
‘And then the officer started pepper spraying everybody on the porch.’
One of the young men ran away, and Dubiel chased after him, spraying as he went. A woman standing nearby is heard saying, “So this is what innocent people are doing now?” Gurbir Grewal, the New Jersey attorney general, described the incident as “appalling and completely unjustified.” The prosecutor’s office released a statement saying that the two people sprayed by Dubiel “were not observed physically resisting or trying to harm themselves or others.” Jill Mayer, the interim prosecutor, said: “After careful review, it became clear that Dubiel’s actions are not consistent with the New Jersey State’s use of force policy.”
Ryan Dubiel Arrest & Charge
Dubiel has been charged with two counts of simple assault and suspended without pay. The two victims were cited for minor tobacco violations. Dubiel was also revealed to have worked for nine police departments, prompting Grewal to demand a licensing system for all officers. “Just as we license doctors, nurses, and attorneys, we must ensure that all officers meet basic standards of professionalism,” he said. Woodlynne Councilman Clyde Cook said Dubiel has been investigated for misconduct before.
‘I question once again, our mayor, why would you put an officer, or allow an officer to be on the street, knowing he has two strikes against him against the general public?’ he said.
