    If the police covered it up then quoting those police officers as sources/proof he was not killed seams unreliable.

    If they interviewed him and imprisoned him multiple times then how can they not know his name?

    I'm very late to the party on this but I just watched this video and it was deeply disturbing. I literally haven't been able to fall asleep at night since I saw this crap. The man had the mind of a child, look at the way he showed off his tiger tattoo. He didn't want to fight and they still beat him down and by the looks of it killed him at the end. He held his own for a while but just didn't have the heart to really fight the black belt off. He was obviously just not a fighter at heart. When a trained martial artist stomps your temple twice while your head is flat on concrete, I doubt you survive that unless you get immediate medical attention. I believe them when they say they threw him in a dumpster.

    Something needs to be done. We need to get this in front of an organization that has some power. That's the only way to get past Bobby Joe Blythe's connection with law enforcement and military. I'm thinking we try to get this in front of the black lives matter group.

    Is anyone still active on this thread? Can we try to get something going on this? Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

    Very good point. It seems as thigh there was a cover up on this. I read a report that Bobby Joe Blythe served in the military with the sheriff of this town. That would explain why he was never brought to justice.

    This video really messed me up. I have trouble falling asleep after watching this crap. The guy just wanted to show them some moves he knew. He was just trying to relate to them and he was actually pretty good. They didn't have to beat him down like that. He seemed to have the brain of a child.

    Something needs to be done. A trained martial artist stomped the mans temple twice while his head was flat on the concrete floor. Then they dragged him very fast across the floor, letting his head bump along the ground. There's no way he made it through this.

    What if we get this in front of an organization that has some real resources? Like maybe black lives matter?

    Is anyone still active on this thread? Any response would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

    If you have a source please share it with us.

    Otherwise please do not resurrect/necro threads older than this (2 years innactive).

    I mean that was the official policy(but it used to be 1 year) and I still feel as if that is a good idea especially in MABS.

    You got that link handy?

    I think that this man was murdered, and because he was both mentally ill and black, that the police let it ride. They claim he's ok, but it looked a lot like he was killed, and we haven't seen a lick of proof of life. **** Blythe.

    maybe **just maybe** the answer to that question is in this very thread!

    I watched this video a few years ago. An absolute disgrace to the martial arts.
