North Carolina – A suspect accused of multiple hit and run accidents in Raleigh, North Carolina is now attempting to sue police after they exerted force to place him under arrest. After the suspect was pulled over and reportedly being non-cooperative with the arresting officer, and then also physically resisting, he’s playing victim by clamoring about excessive force. In today’s society, reasonable contemplation of cause-and-effect is a rare attribute.
Cell phone video footage surfaced on Twitter last week depicting an arrest that happened on January 14th, where an officer can be seen employing force to detain an unwilling suspect.
22-year-old Braily Andres Batista Concepcion was arrested and charged with three counts of hit-and-run, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, DWI, resisting arrest, and possession of marijuana. What led police to track down and arrest this suspect were several calls that came in about the suspect’s vehicle ramming into various cars.
According to police, a report came in at about 9:30 a.m. regarding a hit and run in the 3500 block of Wake Forest Road. Reports also detailed that the same vehicle was then involved in a second hit-and-run in a parking lot at St. Albans Drive and Wake Forest Road. If the cars weren’t enough action already, the suspect had then allegedly been spotted running into a utility pole.
These hit-and-runs weren’t the typical accidental of bumping and speeding off; the suspect apparently hit one individual car two times. As for the second vehicle that was allegedly struck by Batista Concepcion’s car, he tried to also hit their car twice, witnesses said.
911 dispatchers received the following call from one of the victims:
“We just got ran into and the guy took off, twice. He ran into us twice and took off.”
Shortly after the first call came in, a woman dialed 911 and stated the following:
“They hit me. And then I stopped at the red light and they looked in the mirror and they were trying to back up and hit me again.”
After the reports came flooding in, police had happened upon Batista Concepcion’s car and pulled him over. In light of the video uploaded to Twitter by the minors in the backseat of the suspects car, police had also released the officer’s dash cam and body cam footage to showcase the entirety of the arrest.
Body cam footage showed that the suspect was refusing to comply with orders to place their hand on the steering wheel. Instead of Batista Concepcion doing as ordered by the officer, he continues to count and fold money in his hands.
During the officer interaction, the suspect ignores a total of three orders to place his hands on the steering wheel before the officer then attempts to remove the suspect from the car.
The suspect then continues to resist the arrest, pulling away from the officer while he is actively trying to extract him from the vehicle. After several instances of active and physical resisting displayed by Batista Concepcion, a second officer arrives and helps in removing the suspect from the car and placing him into cuffs.
During the entire interaction, both officers used a series of strikes against the suspect in order to achieve needed compliance. There wasn’t a single instance throughout the ordeal where the suspect wasn’t trying to resist arrest.
The outrage mob was in full effect on this one, despite a statement of support from the Raleigh Police Department that stated:
“Mr. Batista-Concepcion failed to follow the officer’s commands and officers used force to remove him from the vehicle.”
Predictably, news cameras rushed to speak with Batista Concepcion, treating him as some kind of victim of a horrible crime. Community activist Kerwin Pittman, who is parading the suspect as a victim, noted that the reason that Batista Concepcion didn’t comply with police during the initial orders from officers was because he felt “attacked”.
It’s really difficult to understand how being told to put your hands on the steering wheel is an attack, but nothing is surprising when people pull the victim card.

While no lawsuit has been officially announced, Batista Concepcion stated that one is being considered. In this writer’s opinion, this seems like a double-ploy crafted by Batista Concepcion. By playing victim, the suspect is trying to see his copious amount of charges dropped, while simultaneously getting a city-funded payday. Instead of the media paying attention and interviewing the real victims in this case, the ones who had their cars struck, they’re instead showing pity toward an accused criminal.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is busy downplaying the dangers of drinking and driving.
In Biden’s latest stance about what he’d do if he’s elected as president, he reportedly told Vice News that he wouldn’t deport illegals convicted of drunk driving. His rationale for this is because drunk driving isn’t a felony in his book, and thus immigration officials shouldn’t have to deal with it.
There are so many things wrong in that sentence. So let’s break it down.
On January 20, Biden was featured on a Vice News hosted event in Iowa that focused on “voters of color”.
Biden dropped his two-cents on illegal immigrants getting arrested and deported for committing crimes:
“[ICE Agents should] only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that’s committed [in the United States], and I don’t count drunk driving as a felony.”
So, does Joe Biden intend to ignore all the laws that could in fact make drunk driving a felony offense? Like repeat offenses, instances where someone is hurt or killed… the list goes on.

Drunk driving kills Americans, plain and simple. Over 10,000 people die annually from drunk drivers – that’s a figure not far off from murder rates by all firearms combined.
I figure that someone so scared of guns killing people would certainly consider those weaponizing their vehicles as threats to be removed from the country if possible.
The numbers don’t lie, as a 2019 end-of-year report from ICE showed 49,106 criminal convictions for DUIs, alongside 39,717 traffic violations, 47,453 “dangerous drugs” convictions, and 26,156 assault charges. Those DUI convictions can lead to deportations that keep the roads safer and alleviate costs of harboring illegals.
The irony in all this is that Biden managed to make MADD mad. The group known as Mothers Against Drunk Driving, abbreviated as MADD, issued a statement after Biden made the comments about not calling drunk driving a felony.
“Drunk driving is the Number 1 killer on America’s roads and a violent crime that MADD believes should be punished to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of the offender’s immigration status.”
And Biden says he wouldn’t just stop at ignoring crimes committed by illegal immigrants. He actually talked about firing immigration officers who arrest people that are illegally in the country at the event as well. His rationale is that someone who is here illegally should be able to remain illegally, unless they do something felonious – and officers who arrest illegals while betraying that directive need to be fired.
Waging a war against immigration entities within the Department of Homeland Security does nothing for actual citizens of the country. The leniency against illegal aliens that have drunk driving arrests and convictions has gone on far too long.
Take, for example, that of the 800,000 illegal immigrants who obtained DACA work permits during the Obama years, 4,210 of them had drunk driving arrests. Then you’ve got sanctuary cities and states that just let illegal drunk drivers back on the street, with activist attorneys that claim a DUI doesn’t justify a deportation.
This is just insane, considering that the only justification needed for deportation is someone being here illegally. There’s no need to make an issue more complicated than need be – no matter how said person makes their presence known to immigration authorities, they should be subject to deportation.
There have been several examples in the news that have highlighted the dangers of illegal immigrants who have driven drunk, causing some serious harm.
In July 2017, there was 32-year-old Nemias Garcia-Velasco who was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide. That act wound up killing a 58-year-old father of three, Silvano Torres.
In early 2016, illegal alien Eswin Mejia fled the country after being able to post bail in Omaha for killing 21-year-old Sarah Root while driving drunk. The young girl died just one day after graduating from Bellvue University with a 4.0 GPA and a B.S. in crime investigation.
Then, just months ago, we had an example of a man killing two lawful immigrants via drunk driving. 25-year-old Juan Rodea-Cruz was allegedly driving drunk down the wrong side of the road in Clarendon Hills, Illinois on October 20th, killing 26-year-old Marko Boskovic and 25-year-old Laura Uribe from the impact.
We even lost 26-year-old Indianapolis Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson in a crash caused by an illegal alien years back. 37-year-old Mexican national Alex Cabrera Gonsales killed both Jackson and 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe by crashing his Ford F-150 into them while being intoxicated.
This isn’t just an issue of politics; drunk driving literally kills people. If the country has an opportunity to remove risks that stem from people that shouldn’t even be here to begin with, then it’s time to start deporting them.
