Emerging Facts of the Portland Police Assault upon a blind and disabled person, Benjamen Pickering.

Incident Report

The attack occurred 5/17/13 at 8868 NE Sandy at Ace tavern. Ben was seated in the third bar seat from the right.

His name is mis-spelled as Benjamin in the police report. His true legal name is Benjamen.

Officers involved in the beating include Primary Assailant Karl Klundt (32398), reporting officer Jerry Cioeta (33930) who admits pinning Pickering to the ground in his report, and admits the presence of furniture getting in the way, which benjamen alleges almost gouged out his right seeing eye.

Officers Bryson (51225) and Jackson (51272) attended. Cioetta admits Pickering complains of an injury to which SGT, Birkinbine responded.

It is uncertain at this time which officer told ben that the brutalization was wrong, and referred Ben to OHSU after his release from jail where he was held excessively to allow the bruising and swelling of his blind eye to go down. It is possible that bryson or Jackson were the officers that said "this better not be the disabled kid benjamen pickering" who had been reported missing and vulnerable by a family member. It is also possible that they are witnesses of the Klundt attack or that the video in the receiving area of Multnomah County Detention Center may offer evidence of his brutalization, or that a receiving officer or corrections official witnessed the bruises and made the medical referral.

ben has lost the card of the portland police officer whistleblower who told him what the officers did to him was wrong.

In a report signed by supervisor John Birkinbane, Karl Klundt admits placing his knee on Benjamen Pickering's head. He does not admit violently crushing Benjamen's skull with his knee, an assault from which Benjamen still suffers painful headaches.

Benjamen also suffered an injury to his left elbow which still causes pain. He was in extreme pain during and after the assault.

Neither reporting officer considers the audio processing difficulties and blindness from the Traumatic Brain Injury which left Benjamen blind and braingdamaged art age 10. Placing or smashing his knee into Benjamen's head is medically inadvisable, as Benjamen as been informed by his Doctor that a single blow to the head can kill him, due to the severe brain injury, and repeated secondary brain injuries Benjamen has suffered.

Benjamen's Washinton state care dog is called Brewsky.

Ben's caregiving and Guide Dog for the Blind needs have been neglected by the State, as has his need for a medical bracelet stating TBI and Blind in left eye, as well as a medical white blind cane, and a fluorescent safety vest, all of which may have helped deter the Police Brutality.

Ben did not have a cell phone, a walkie talkie, a pager, or a medical alert device the night of the attack.

he is currently being denied access to his Lawful Social Security Disability funds due to mismanagement by Nicole Martin, aka Mykeia Nacole Martin, his administrative payee, and her company Precision Financial Management. He has no money for food or medical expenses, and Nicole Martin refuses to give him his July income, or to answer the phone, or to meet him.

She has repeatedly refused to answer calls or viocemails demanding Ben have access to his Social Security income.

She also did not know he was blind or beaten and traumatized by police in portland. His attorney did not know about his blindness or TBI (traumatic brain injury) until i mary eng, became involved i my own capacity July 1. 2013 the day of Benjamen's first testimonial films about the portland police beating and persecution.

Benjamen is medically advised to always wear protective eyewear due to his vision impairment and the value of his right eye which was almost gauged out during the Klundt beating.

Neither Klundt nor Cioetta admit saying "don't be a pussy you can handle it" in their reports. Benjamen stat

In order to further investigateallegations of misconduct by Portland Police Bureau officers, I need to speak directly to Mr.Pickering.You stated that Mr. Pickering has or would soon have an attorney. I have attached a sampleof the letter I will send to an attorney representing Mr. Pickering. As you can see in theletter, if IPR has reason to believe that Mr. Pickering may have an attorney, we need thatattorney’s response before proceeding. We are the correct place to bring your allegationsagainst the Portland Police Bureau. You are welcome to ask any questions about our investigative process. I would like to hear Mr. Pickering’s account, and to be able to properlylook into the alleged misconduct.To facilitate this happening, please provide me with the name of the attorney to contact, sothat I can ask under what circumstances they will allow me to interview Mr. Pickering.If Mr. Pickering does NOT have legal representation, I would appreciate if you could facilitatecontact so that I can set up a time and place for an interview. I understand thataccommodation may be required, and can discuss how to best accommodate anycommunication needs or physical needs.Below, I have pasted the description of the ways in which IPR can handle a complaint. Again, feel free to ask questions about our process. At this point, I need confirmation of theattorney before moving forward. Thank you for your advocacy.Respectfully,Casey Bieberich
