Remember this case?

Cop Who Killed Unarmed Dad Begging for His Life Claims Showing Jury Body Cam is “Unfair”

Phoenix, AZ —  In March of 2016, Mesa Police Officer Philip Brailsford was charged with second-degree murder for gunning down Daniel Shaver, an innocent husband, and father of two. The shooting was captured on his body cam, part of which was released the following May.

Now, however, Brailsford’s defense is claiming that the prosecution showing the jury the body cam during opening statements would be unfair to the killer cop.

According to AZ Central, Brailsford, 26, is scheduled to stand trial starting Oct. 23 on a charge of second-degree murder. The trial is expected to last 16 days. In a memorandum filed in Maricopa County Superior Court on Monday, attorney Michael Piccarreta says prosecutor Susie Charbel plans to show an 18-minute police body- camera recording during her opening statement, scheduled for Oct. 25.

Piccarreta says in the memo “that it is extremely unfair to the defense” to show the video during the opening statement because that wouldn’t allow the defense lawyer to immediately cross-examine any witnesses about the footage.

However, the playing of the video is in line with standards of opening statements allowing the prosecution to establish their credibility in this case. The video of Brailsford killing Shaver will undoubtedly be at the very center of the case so the defense’s claim of not being allowed to cross-examine any witness about the footage is unfounded.

Regardless of when the body camera video is shown, it will be the first time the full, unedited version will be played.

Last year, an Arizona judge announced that they would be releasing the body camera footage showing Brailsford murder Shaver. When they did release it, however, the city released two videos, both of which were clearly edited and portions redacted.

Police said Shaver, a 26-year-old from Texas staying at the La Quinta Inn & Suites on a business trip on Jan. 18, 2016, had invited a couple he met to his room for drinks. No one was in any danger and the entire incident was a misunderstanding. For the majority of the video, police appear to be in a standoff with people who simply can’t hear them.

“Occupants of room 5-0-2, this is the Mesa Police,” the officer is heard yelling on the video, to which he receives no response.

“Listen to my instructions or it’s going to become very uncomfortable for you,” the officer said. “The female is to step outside the room.”

When ‘the female’ does step out the room, she is escorted away by an officer as she tells him how scared she is.

“I’m so scared,” she told the officer, clearly in shock with the multiple officers in the hallway responding to a hotel in which no crime had been committed and innocent people were simply sharing drinks.

Below are the redacted versions of the police body cameras.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSUM-v8lpFc" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSUM-v8lpFc</a> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pIl6IjpPjE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pIl6IjpPjE</a>

The videos above clearly illustrate the intentions behind only releasing a portion of the body camera footage. It is made to look like it was an intense standoff as well as make the police look like heroes as they comforted the woman.

However, as we pointed out, it was likely that there was no standoff and they simply did not hear the officers. Also, the woman was most likely not scared of the man who she voluntarily consented to have drinks with — she was scared of the multiple armed men pointing AR-15s at them. This will likely come out when the defense is allowed to cross-examine her.

When Laney Sweet, Shaver’s wife originally asked to see the footage, she was told that if she watched it, she would be forced to remain completely silent about its contents.

During an interview with Maricopa County attorney, Bill Montgomery, Sweet was given the ultimatum — watch the disturbing video and never speak of it, or don’t. The widow of an innocent man, killed by the government, was told that the video proves her husband did not deserve to die. However, Sweet will now have to wait until the city decides to release the unedited version of the video to get closure—this would have been over a year.

In a statement to the press, the county stated that Daniel Shaver was complying with officers, crawling on his hands and knees and begged not to be shot, just before Brailsford opened fire.

“Please don’t shoot me,” Shaver is quoted in the police report.

However, last year, Brailsford’s attorney denied Shaver begged not to shoot him while at the same time thanking Superior Court Judge Sam Myers for not releasing the entire video.

On January 18, Brailsford, along with several other officers, responded to a call about a suspect with a rifle in a hotel room. The ‘rifle’ was nothing more than a pellet gun that was used in Shaver’s business of pest control, and Shaver was not in possession of the pellet gun when he was murdered in cold blood by officer Brailsford.

According to KTAR, Brailsford told investigators that Shaver was ordered to crawl toward officers with his hands on the ground, but the officer believed Shaver’s move forward was an attempt to get “a better firing position on us.”

The officer said he could no longer see Shaver’s right hand and worried that Shaver could have easily drawn on officers, who were just feet away in a hallway outside his room. However, none of the other officers fired, illustrating the lack of danger.

“So that’s when I assessed the threat. I fired my weapon, uh, five times,” Brailsford said, adding that it was terrifying the first time Shaver reached back.

Charging an officer with murder in Arizona is an exceptionally rare incident, which speaks to the severity of what must be shown on the body camera. It also means that this coward officer was in no danger when he decided to pull the trigger — 5 times.

Brailsford was fired from the department in March of 2016 for multiple policy violations not associated with the murder of Shaver. After he was fired, we learned that he should have never had a badge that night he killed an innocent man.

Aside from his unsatisfactory performance, records released by Mesa Police revealed that Brailsford was accused of beating three people a few months before he killed Shaver. He also etched “You’re Fucked” into his AR-15 police rifle — illustrating his disregard for human life.

Two children and a wife will now live the rest of their lives without their loving father because of the actions of this public servant. The one thing that could help get this family closure is to see the man who stole the life of their dad and husband put behind bars. Hopefully, this case ends differently than the countless cases before which ended with killer cops walking free for needlessly killing other human beings.

The Free Thought Project will continue to cover the trial as it unfolds next week.

You say I am part of the problem because I minimize, justify, cover for bad cops. I say you are part of the problem, you and similar causes like Black Lives Matter because you cry wolf when there is no wolf, it takes the focus off the real incidents and waters down your position.

The problem isn't the 1% or less than 1% of bad cops who do atrocious things.  It's the other 99+% of cops who blindly defend anything and everything cop.  Regarding BLM?  Give me a break, there most certainly is a wolf.

"There were 280 Formal complaints filed in 2015 – 64 External Formal complaints and 216 Internal Formal complaints.  In aggregate, this was a total increase of less than 1% (3 cases) from the number filed in 2014.   There were 3 fewer External Formal complaints (↓ 1%) and 6 more Internal Formal complaints (↑ 3%).  "

This is from the latest posted Office of the Police Monitor report for the Austin police Department. Notice the ratio of cops reporting on cops verses citizens reporting on cops is about 4 to 1.

Son of Sheriff—Who Locked Down Entire School to Look for Drugs—Busted for Drugs

Worth County, GA — In June, violated children and furious parents filed a massive lawsuit after the Worth County Sheriff’s office conducted an illegal search of 900 students in a fruitless effort looking for non-existent drugs, sexually abusing multiple children in the process.

Earlier this month, Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby was indicted over this search for sexual battery, false imprisonment and violation of oath of office after he ordered a school-wide search of hundreds of high school students to look for drugs. Deputies allegedly touched girls vaginas and breasts and groped boys in their groin area during the search at the Worth County High School April 14, reports RARE.

Now, we are learning that last week, after this sheriff violated the rights of 900 innocent kids and was arrested for it, his own son was busted for drugs.

As the AJC reports, the drug arrest of Zachary Lewis Hobby last week has renewed speculation that Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby’s decision to search the entire local high school last April was somehow linked to his son’s troubles.

“It’s a raw issue,” said Tommy Coleman, attorney for the Worth County Board of Education.

Coleman said anytime there’s a development in the story it fuels community discussion. He said the arrest last week of the sheriff’s son reignited speculation, according to AJC.

“My sense is this was common knowledge and it didn’t really surprise anyone in the community,” Coleman said.

Coleman told the paper that Zachary was a student at Worth County High School last year when the Sheriff ordered the raid. However, he was not there that day.

Agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation were called in last week to investigate a drug case involving the sheriff’s son. The younger Hobby, age 17, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and criminal trespass for an incident that occurred in Poulan on Oct. 9, according to the GBI.
 
The son allegedly handed the drugs to another person, Aaron Ray Short, 20, according to GBI. Short was also charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
Naturally, Sheriff Hobby is standing by this rights violation on a massive scale, according to his attorney, noting that as long as a school administrator was present, the search of the children was legal. But this was not the case.

As WALB reported at that time, Worth County Schools attorney Tommy Coleman said in order for the Sheriff’s office to search any students, they’d had to have reason to believe there was some kind of criminal activity or the student had possession of contraband or drugs.

“If you don’t have that then this search would violate an individual’s rights,” said Coleman. “[It] violates the constitutional right and enforcing them the right against unreasonable search and seizures.”

Interim Worth County Superintendent Lawrence Walters said he understands parents concerns about the drug search at Worth County High school on Friday, according to WALB.

“I’ve never been involved with anything like that ever in the past 21 years and I don’t condone it,” said Walters.

While pot possession is certainly no danger to society, the irony of this rights-violating tyrant having to watch his own son get caught up inside a system that the sheriff perpetuates is incredible.


Perhaps, if this sheriff beats these charges—which, if history is any indicator, he most certainly will—he will choose to promote freedom instead of waging an oppressive drug war that does nothing to stop addiction and abuse but does everything to foster crime and ruin lives.

Haha, what a story.  So, since they say it was "common knowledge" and, basically, everyone knew the guy was on a power trip due to his son smoking pot, you really have to wonder about this guy.

Oh, yeah.  Let's make him our Sheriff.  Just the sort we need.  It will be so wonderful, and what could go wrong.

Thanks - Thats about as straight a reply as we'll get from you.

"But yeah, we agree some cops are screwed up, or do screwed up things, we just disagree on the size of the problem"
On this matter You stated previously that you thought between 5 & 10% of cops were bad apples....
out of what approximately 1,000,000 cops That makes for between 50,00 to 100,000 Scumbags
That are armed & have the right to shoot / kill & the law on their side Plus how many others to cover up for them / not report them.!!!

As for the size of the problem I'd say that was A BIg Fcuking Problem.

Instead of the "very very few - hell, even hardly existent- bad apples", we should be talking about the few good apples: those who go above and beyond what their job description/union contract requires, actually serve and help their community instead of tyrannizing it, respect the Constitution and act fairly and impartially, regardless of who the criminal is. The problem is not only the cops committing those horrific crimes but also the other cops who might be present on the scene and participate in these crimes either by actively supporting the criminal cop or by corroborating the story afterwards or by intimidating/arresting/coercing witnesses or stealing their recording equipment or by not enforcing the law and arresting on the spot whoever (cop or otherwise) commits the crimes. When was the last time you saw a cop arresting another criminal cop on the spot (in the same way they'd arrest a normal citizen) but instead they just blindly help him abuse and attack and violate other people's rights? And you are talking about people who work in this system and know its intricacies, technicalities and back doors quite well.

Even a tiny percentage of these criminals is still a huge number, made even more terrifying by the power and special protections they have. Certainly there are so many cases of abuse that go unreported by so called "good cops" who do not want to "snitch" on another cop and break the blue wall of silence or by citizens who are intimidated, extorted or coerced or cases where evidence is magically lost (bodycams that are switched off, turned away or have footage deleted or not released etc). All this, and much more, perpetuates a culture of abuse and lack of accountability and punishment for the not so "very very few bad apples".

Another criminal caught in the act. Of course he gets paid vacation for his "bad decision" (as his employer puts it).

Cop Caught on Video Breaking into Elderly Man’s Home, Stealing Cash & Prescription Drugs

Boyton Beach, FL — A Palm Beach County deputy was arrested this month after he was captured on surveillance footage breaking into an 85-year-old man’s home in Boyton Beach and stealing his property. The cop was on duty at the time.

During Hurricane Irma’s havoc last month, Moe Rosoff, the elderly victim of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department, was riding out the storm in his home alone. However, when the power went out, Rosoff fell down and hit his head. When his family hadn’t heard from him, they called the police to conduct a welfare check.

Three deputies responded to Rosoff’s home and found him on the floor in his master bedroom. He was taken to a local hospital, however, he would succumb to his injuries later that day and pass away.

During the welfare check, Deputy Jason Cooke would receive Rosoff’s garage code over the radio. Knowing that no one would be home, Cooke decided to burglarize the home. Little did he know, however, that there was a nest surveillance camera watching his every move.

Cooke was seen on video stealing money, jewelry, and several prescription medications from Rosoff’s home. When the family saw the video on September 20, they went directly to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Naturally, Cooke denied the allegations against him. However, once he was shown the video, he was quickly caught in a lie.

The family was shocked to find out that Cooke was not immediately placed under arrest. In fact, the sheriff’s office would wait five weeks before charging Cooke—in spite of video evidence of him committing felony burglary. Because of his blue privilege, Cooke was allowed to enter a 30-day drug rehabilitation program before they charged him.

“We were told that Officer Cooke denied the crime at first, but after he was shown the video, he admitted the crimes,” the family said. “Found in Mr. Cooke’s patrol car was a 2016 prescription bottle containing Vyvanse, a central nervous system stimulant, 47 pills of Tramadol Hydrochloride, a strong pain killer (with 3 different markings), Proclorperazine Maleate an anti-psychotic drug and Carisoprodol (Soma) a muscle relaxant. Not all of these medications we think were taken from our father, leading us to believe that this was not Officer Cooke’s first crime.”

Aside from the shock of watching a cop burglarize their father and not get immediately arrested, the family was also outraged to learn that Cooke was working in full capacity under the influence of multiple narcotics.

“If Officer Cooke was operating in his official capacity under these medications, it is our belief that he may have posed a significant threat to the public’s safety since just a few of the noted side effects of these medications include confusion, impaired thinking, impaired reactions, abnormal behavior, tremors, drowsiness, altered state of consciousness and anger,” the family said.

Indeed, this officer has a problem and he used his badge to feed that problem at the expense of his victims. Finally, after five weeks of remaining free—despite video evidence showing he is a criminal—Cooke was arrested last week and charged with burglary and grand theft with a firearm.

When asked why the deputy was allowed to remain free, the department chose to remain silent, releasing only the following statement.

“Unfortunately, sometimes an employee makes a bad decision which leads to misconduct,” a statement from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said. “This misconduct was reported, investigated and subsequently determined to be criminal in nature, resulting in the charges.”

Cooke is currently on paid vacation pending the outcome of his trial.

In America, police will legally break into your home and steal your property even if you are innocent. This practice is known as civil asset forfeiture. However, in the video below, a cop was arrested because he did not receive the approval from his superiors before stealing from an innocent person.

Judge Removes Fatal Shooting of Black Man From Ex-Tulsa Officer’s Record

The first-degree manslaughter case brought against a white former Oklahoma police officer who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man will be removed from her record after she asked to have it expunged, a judge ruled Wednesday.
But that doesn't mean no one will ever be able to read the case again.

District Judge William LaFortune also ordered all documents involving former Tulsa officer Betty Jo Shelby's case sealed and kept with the court. The case will only be accessible through a court order and can be destroyed after 10 years, according to state law.

Excluding government and law enforcement, which would have access to the record because Shelby would likely disclose it on job applications, agencies won't be able to find the case in a background search, said Shelby's defense attorney, Shannon McMurray.

As for the other prescription meds he had in his possession: makes ya wonder if they bothered to track down how he came about them.  Are they linked with stops he'd made in the past?  Citizens he'd detained?  Are the prescriptions associated with names on any reports?  Robberies, burglaries?  If they didn't investigate all that, and much more, just as they'd do against any of us, then they're trying to protect themselves just as much as him.  They deserve their asses kicked for that.

Let's see if these armed and violent criminals will get at least 35 years for their crimes.

Feds Indict 3 Cops for Savagely Beating 16yo Boy After Video Exposed Them as Lying Tyrants

Los Angeles, CA — A visit to the LA county fair turned into a police brutality nightmare for Christian Aguilar, who was beaten and tased for doing nothing other than filming the police. Now, because someone bravely decided to film that nightmare, the police who caused it are being held responsible.

Three officers with the Pomona Police Department were indicted Thursday for alleged civil rights violations that occurred during the arrest of then-16-year-old Christian Aguilar.

According to CBS LA, Sgt. Michael Neaderbaomer, Officer Chad Jensen and Officer Prince Hutchinson pleaded not guilty to multiple counts, including use of force, witness tampering, and falsifying records, all stemming from the September 16, 2015, incident.

The officers allegedly wrote a false police report to “justify the use of force” against Aguilar, who was not named in the federal indictment. The report claims the teen came within arm’s length of another officer who was arresting a suspect and then attempted to punch Jensen in the face, while trying to “incite unrest,” reports CBS.

However, none of the alleged incitement of unrest was apparent in the video, thus the indictment of three cops.

In 2015, after the Pomona Police officers beat the teen, they maliciously charged him, his parents, and the uninvolved man who filmed the boy’s assault.

According to the man who filmed the beating, Robert Hansen, police confiscated his camera, arrested him, and edited the video before submitting it for the investigation.

Eventually, all charges against Hansen, Aguilar, and Aguilar’s parents were dropped — but not before cops lied to cover the incident up. The video below, however, does not lie.


As he watched his parents get arrested, Aguilar merely attempted to film the interaction. His freedom of speech was then met with heavy police violence.

According to a report by Photography is Not a Crime at the time,

Quote
As is clear in the video, Aguilar didn’t ever challenge the first officer on the scene’s use of inappropriate force, when Officer Jensen smashed his head into a fence  – instead putting his hands at his sides and thrusting his chin forward in a posture of frustrated readiness.
 
Officer Jensen thrust his forearm into Aguilar’s face twice at maximum thrust, before Pomona Officers Hutchinson and Correa arrived.
 
Hutchinson thoughtfully held the teenager along with Jensen, and that’s when Pomona Officer landed a devastating blow, with his long black baton to Christian Aguilar’s knee, sending the teenager to the ground.
 
As the three grown men beat the teenager, another Pomona Officer came over an discharged his taser near the teen to strike terror.

“In the criminal trial, after watching the officers’ explanations of the discrepancies between the full video and their police reports unravel during cross examination,” said the family lawyer David Gammill, of the Los Angeles based Geragos Law Firm, and that, “The judge dismissed Christian’s criminal case before the defense ever had to call a single witness.”

“It’s heartbreaking to see your kid suffer like that,” said Aguilar. “And then to know that these guys swore an oath are (are) deliberately lying to cover it up.”

According to the Geragos firm, Ignacio Aguilar was a highly regarded cardiac nurse and was forced out of his job by the slanderous allegations. Christian Aguilar’s mother Eraine Aguilar has been in law enforcement since 2001 and was sickened by the conduct of Pomona PD.

When Eraine Aguilar went to the Pomona police department to file a complaint, she says she was intimidated as well.

The family filed a lawsuit against the Pomona police department and the city has paid out $500,000 to settle it.

“If convicted, the charges of excessive force carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, the charges of witness tampering and falsifying records carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, and the charges of false statements to federal agents carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison,” the indictment reads.

“I’m glad the FBI flashed their light down our road to brighten it up,” Ignacio Aguilar said.

Cleveland Police Disciplining 75 Cops After An Unarmed Couple Was Shot 137 Times

Pamela Engel      Aug. 2, 2013, 5:40 PM       4,219  23 

Cleveland police officials said Friday they're disciplining 75 of officers for their involvement in a police chase that ended in the shooting deaths of an unarmed man and woman, The Plain Dealer reports.

The pair were shot 137 times while in their car, parked in a middle school parking lot. No officers were injured in what police called a "full blown-out" firefight.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine told reporters in February that "there is nothing normal about this case. ... This is a tragedy."

In November, about 60 police vehicles pursued the two suspects in a 25-minute chase spanning three cities. One suspect, 30-year-old Malissa Williams, was shot 24 times, and the other, 43-year-old Timothy Russell, was shot 23 times.

At the time, police said the suspects fired shots at them near Cleveland's downtown Justice Center, according to The Plain Dealer. And a police dispatcher said that shots were fired at officers during the chase.

But after the chase ended in a gunfight near Heritage Middle School, police checked the car and realized neither Williams nor Russell was armed.

It isn't clear whether a shot was actually fired at the officer who initiated the chase. Some speculate the Malibu driven by Russell may have backfired.

A report from the state's attorney general shows the officers likely believe the suspects were armed based on erroneous information broadcast over the police radio. Officers told investigators they saw the suspects in the car with what looked like a gun.

Russell might have fled from police initially, fueling the massive chase, because he was high and driving on a suspended license. Toxicology results show that Russell was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol at the time of his death. Williams was also high on cocaine and had marijuana in her system.

The officers being disciplined for violating police protocol won't lose their jobs and did not partake in the gunfight at the end of the chase, but they did have a role in the pursuit. More than 100 police officers were involved in the chase in some way.

Nineteen of the 75 officers facing discipline for offenses ranging from engaging in a chase without permission to providing false information on police reports will have disciplinary hearings and might be suspended temporarily, according to The Plain Dealer.

In 2011, the newspaper published an investigation of reports of excessive use of nondeadly force by Cleveland police officers. The newspaper found that the police chief often overlooked inconsistencies with police officers' stories when investigating use of force incidents.

Many of the officers faced accusations of brutality on the force.

Remember this case? More than 100 cops, 62 police vehicles, 137 shots fired (of which the 2 victims received 23 and 24).

5 Cops Back On the Job After Executing Unarmed Couple, Shooting them 137 Times for a Traffic Stop

Cleveland, OH — In what can only be referred to as a travesty of justice and a disgrace to the integrity of police departments nationwide, five officers who took part in the 137-shot, execution-style fusillade that killed an unarmed couple — are now all back on the job.

According to WOIO, this month, the city of Cleveland released the following statement and confirms that the following five police officers were reinstated to full-time duty.

“The officers were reinstated as required by the arbitrator’s decision.”
Michael Farley              #409
Erin O’Donnell              #1027
Christopher Ereg          #767
Wilfredo Diaz                #350
Brian Sabolik                #1021

The sixth cop, Michael Brelo will remain free from jail but has been fired. He has since become a gypsy cop, scrounging for a job at any department that will hire him.

The shooting came at the end of a November 12, 2012 high-speed chase involving more than 100 officers and 62 police vehicles to go after Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams. The pursuit began when officers standing outside police headquarters mistook the sound of Russell’s backfiring Chevy Malibu for gunfire. When the car stopped outside city limits, officers opened fire, perforating Russell with 24 shots and Williams with 23.

The shooting lasted 19.3 seconds. For anyone who’s ever been to a shooting range or is familiar with firing weapons, 19.3 seconds would seem like an eternity as all those rounds were flying down range. To discount the malicious intent of these officers continuing to fire after the first few seconds is outright criminal.

Neither of the victims were armed, or suspected of anything more serious than traffic violations resulting from the pursuit. A search of the vehicle following the double homicide revealed a crack pipe. Both Russell and Williams had been diagnosed as mentally ill.

The city has since paid $3 million each to the families of Russell and Williams to settle a lawsuit.

Brelo, the ring-leading murderer, fired 49 rounds, including the last 15 after he jumped up on the hood of the car in a wild west fashion. In spite of this horrifying display of aggression, a judge acquitted him of manslaughter charges at trial.

Officers Wilfredo Diaz, Brian Sabolik and Michael Farley and detectives Christopher Ereg and Erin O’Donnell fired the remaining shots in a gross display of excessive deadly force. They were also all acquitted.

Brelo was acquitted in a bench trial after W. Ken Katsaris, a retired sheriff and “expert witness” specializing in testimony tailored to exonerate police officers, testified that Brelo’s only mistake was to expose himself to potential danger, thereby potentially inhibiting his colleagues as they unleashed gunfire in the direction of the vehicle.

By leaping on top of the hood of the car, Brelo was “taking action that is not trained, not recognized, not safe, and put all of the other officers in the vicinity of his becoming a victim and their [the other officers] having to attempt to now engage to save his life,” Katsaris testified before trial judge John P. O’Donnell, who in predictable fashion exonerated the officer.

“We believe that the City’s decision to terminate the other five officers was justified and should have been upheld,” Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said in a statement this week. “We acknowledge that the arbitrator concluded that those officers committed serious policy violations; however, we are reviewing our options regarding the officers whose terminations were not upheld.”

Naturally, the police funded defense attorney is defending the decision and disgustingly referring to the officers — who murdered an unarmed couple over a traffic violation — as exemplary.

“It was a difficult case for both sides and a gratifying outcome,” defense attorney, Patrick D’Angelo, who represents the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, the union of rank-and-file officers, said. “We realize we didn’t prevail in everything that we were seeking but we saved the career of five fine officers.”

In the eyes of the police union, six cops dumping 137 rounds into an unarmed couple is ‘fine’ work.

“Hopefully after further deliberations by both parties, this should be the end of this saga,” D’Angelo said. “Hopefully there will be no appeal and we can go forward.”

As for Brelo, he is still eligible to be hired by other departments. For unloading 49 rounds into an unarmed couple, 15 of which a court, the department, and the arbitrator all agreed were ‘egregious’ in nature, Brelo could very well be back on the street in no time.

“Indeed Officer Brelo never offered a reason or an explanation for these actions,” Arbitrator William Heekin wrote in his ruling. “Accordingly and upon finding that this clearly constituted an excessive use of deadly force, the contention of the City that it amounted to egregious misconduct where as a result the City no longer has trust and confidence in his ability to carry out the duties and responsibilities of a police officer is accepted.”

For clearly using excessive deadly force, however, Brelo and his murderous accomplices faced no consequences and are now back on the job.

“It’s tragic that it went down this way, but at the end of the day, two people high on crack cocaine, high on marijuana, one of them intoxicated, made the decisions that they made and we responded to them,” union spokesman Steve Loomis said after the officers were acquitted. “And we responded within our training.”

As the late William Grigg noted in his coverage of this case for the Free Thought Project last year:

This is precisely the problem: Cleveland police, like their comrades nation-wide, are trained to kill people for reasons that will not withstand rational scrutiny — and they are expected to be rewarded for doing so.

Man Loses Truck For Two Years Over A Few Bullets; Civil Asset Forfeiture Abuses Rage On

In September of 2015, Gerardo Serrano was driving from his home in Kentucky to visit relatives in Mexico. When he stopped at the border in Texas, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) officers searched his truck and found five bullets in the center console. While Serrano has a concealed carry permit, he did not have any weapon in the vehicle. He had simply forgotten about the bullets he’d left in the console.

Always eager to pounce on any excuse to grab property (which often helps pad the budget of the law enforcement agency involved), the Border Patrol officers declared that Serrano was transporting “munitions of war” and therefore they were taking his vehicle from him. Customs did not attempt to bring any criminal action against him, but impounded his truck under civil asset forfeiture. Under that law, government officials can take a person’s property on the theory that the property itself is guilty of some wrongdoing.

Once the property has been forfeited, the owner has to undertake a lengthy and difficult legal battle to get it back. Many unfortunate people can’t do that and just give up.

Not nearly enough. The violent uniformed criminals involved with this should spend a few decades in prison and should also pay out of their own pocket but since they're part of the uniformed criminal gang the bill gets sent to the taxpayers.

Utah nurse reaches $500,000 settlement in dispute over her arrest for blocking cop from drawing blood from patient

University Hospital nurse Alex Wubbels has agreed to a $500,000 payment to settle a dispute over her arrest by a Salt Lake City police officer after she barred him from drawing blood from an unconscious patient, her attorney said Tuesday.

Wubbels will use a portion of the money to help people get body camera footage, at no cost, of incidents involving themselves, she said at the news conference. In addition, Porter’s law firm, Christensen & Jensen, will provide for free any legal services necessary to obtain the video.

“We all deserve to know the truth and the truth comes when you see the actual raw footage and that’s what happened in my case,” Wubbels said. “No matter how truthful I was in telling my story, it was nothing compared to what people saw and the visceral reaction people experienced when watching the footage of the experience that I went through.”

A tiny dog made the "brave" cop fear for his life... Not particularly surprising that then he's in a department that also just happens to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that violates the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

Cop Fears For His Life, Kills Family’s Tiny 12lb Dog, Exploded Her Head in Front of Kids

Ville Platte, LA — Kelli Sullivan and family are grieving the loss of their pet terrier mix. But their beloved dog didn’t die of natural causes as one might expect. Instead, the family says an Evangeline Parish Sheriff’s deputy shot and killed the tiniest member of their family, all because the dog was barking.

Quote
I know in my heart he didn’t have to shoot her. He didn’t have to shoot that dog in front of my kids. He just didn’t.

In fact, the officer’s business had already been conducted at the home, after police were called to assist with a harassing neighbor. It was toward the end of the contact with police that the dog got out of the house and ran towards the officer. The dog is just above ankle height on most people. Sullivan says the dog was just doing what it always does when strangers come to the home.

Quote
The dog got out. I walked to the end of the driveway to try to catch her.

Sullivan said her daughter was also trying to help her mother corral the dog and get it back inside the house.

Quote
My daughter was running around trying to catch her. I thought we were going to go back in the house.

She says just when she thought the dog had been caught, that’s when the puppycide happened.

Quote
I walked back to the house opened the door, turned around, (and) boom, he shot her.

The young mother then described the horror the entire family, including young children, were exposed to. The dog literally exploded with the force of the handgun’s projectile.

Quote
It was a horrific event. He shot the dog up close and blew her skull apart in front of my children. Like her eyeballs were out of her head.

She said the officer’s cold-hearted insensitivity was on full display with the snarky comment he made after he’d just killed who they considered a member of their family. She said the unnamed officer was upset that he had to waste such an expensive hollow-point bullet on the dog. Unapologetically she says the deputy remarked:

Quote
‘I had to shoot her she came at me’. Then, he said, ‘It’s really a shame I had to waste that bullet because it’s a really expensive bullet’.

While civilians are attempting to document the number of people killed by police officers per year (which tops around 1,200 annually), there’s no official number of family pets killed per year and it’s assumed that the number may be astronomical. After all, just as the Evangeline Parish officer claimed, the police only have to claim they were in fear and they can be legally justified in killing a family pet, regardless if the animal is being aggressive or not.

Rarely if ever do families sue, and even rarer still did they win in court when they try to receive compensation for emotional or actual damages when police kill family pets. Complicating matters for dog owners, as TFTP has reported, courts in the United States have sided with law enforcement on the issue of law enforcement’s right to kill animals in the line of duty.

In the land of the free, police can come onto your private property, gun your tiny dog down in broad daylight, and this is called ‘standard procedure.’ Well, it’s a damn good thing that postal workers, delivery truck drivers, pizza delivery drivers — and all the other jobs that require people to go to someone’s home and NOT KILL THEIR DOG — don’t claim the same rights as cops, or family pets would probably be extinct.

Sadly, this trend shows no signs of slowing.

According to some estimates, as John Whitehead points out, a dog is shot by a police officer “every 98 minutes.”

The Department of Justice estimates that at least 25 dogs are killed by police every day.

The Puppycide Database Project estimates the number of dogs being killed by police to be upwards of 500 dogs a day (which translates to 182,000 dogs a year).

Because not all police departments keep track of canine shootings, these numbers vary widely. However, whatever the final body count, what we’re dealing with is an epidemic of vast proportions.

Incredibly, in 1 out of 5 cases involving police shooting a family pet, a child was either in the police line of fire or in the immediate area of a shooting.

There are court cases that this state is ignoring. So it is an unconstitutional act for them to retain this truck. but yet....

Some "brave" and "honorable" "heroes"... As expected their union goon squad came out to support them.

Cops Indicted As Video Shows Innocent Man Set On Fire, Brutally Beaten By Police

Jersey City, NJ — A high-speed chase in Jersey City ended when the car police were chasing crashed, turned another man’s car into a ball of flames. But it’s the chaotic insanity which followed the crash and the fire that has now resulted in the indictment of several Jersey City police officers.

According to a report by PIX11, a group of New Jersey police officers have been indicted, including two for attempted murder, after they were caught on camera kicking a bystander as he crawled from the burning wreckage of a crash involving a pursuit suspect, the Hudson County prosecutor announced Thursday.

The officers face a slew of charges each:

Lt. Leith Ludwig has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of official misconduct.
MD Khan has been charged with 13 counts, including attempted murder, aggravated assault, official misconduct and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
Officer Eric Kosinski has been charged with five counts, including attempted murder, aggravated assault and official misconduct.
Officer Francisco Rodriguez has been charged with four counts, including aggravated assault, official misconduct and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
Jersey City police were pursuing Leo Pinkston, 48, and had attempted to kill him by firing rounds into his vehicle. He fled, but crashed into another car which was pushed into a telephone pole.

The car Pinkston crashed into then caught on fire. The innocent man inside the car was able to escape the flames, but not without injury. His clothes and skin were burning.

As the man scrambles to take off his burning clothes as he gets out of the fire, a bystander named Erik Roberto was filming the scene. Roberto screamed to the police, “Oh no…no…Help him out! Help him out!”

But they did the exact opposite.

“They didn’t help him. They just started kicking him and dragging him…I don’t think they treated him in the right way and that’s not how you treat any human being in this world,” Roberto lamented to reporters.

After police rapidly approached the man, with guns drawn, they began kicking him in the ribs and head, apparently mistaking him for the fleeing driver. It was only after kicking and beating him that they then decided to drag him away from the flames of the burning vehicle.

The actions of the officers are considered abhorrent by Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop who told reporters at the time, “I don’t think there’s any explanation that would justify their actions…The entire pursuit that was previous to that fiery crash had questionable judgment calls by the officers, from the shootings to continuing to pursue the car…”

On Thursday, Fulop released this statement:

“As we stated at the outset, the actions taken that night required serious investigation. We took immediate and appropriate action and will now abide the judicial process. Our internal investigation will now begin into all the actions or inactions of department members that night. We want the community to continue to have full confidence in the Jersey City Police Department and its officers.”

Laughably and predictably, the Jersey City Police Officers Benevolent Association (JCPOBA) president Carmine Disbrow issued a statement defending the actions of its officers that day.

"This video clearly shows that the officers acted quickly to extinguish the flames and pull this man out of harm’s way."

We at The Free Thought Project beg to differ. The video clearly shows officers, who would have to have been blind not to see a burning man, go up and kick him like a junkyard dog and drag his body like a dead corpse across the pavement.

The whole incident leaves many people scratching their heads in disbelief incredulously wondering not only why the officers would choose to assault a burning man, but also how any police officers union would dare to defend their actions.

The unidentified innocent man lives in West NY. His father said he suffered severe burns and spent many days in the burn unit in the hospital. He also has fractured ribs.

His father called the actions of the officers an attempted “massacre” and said he’d just left home to go to work when the accident and beating took place.


The entire incident serves to illustrate how police officers treat individuals they suspect as having committed crimes. No longer are suspects innocent until proven guilty. All too often, as TFTP has tirelessly reported, cops comport themselves as judge, jury, and executioners.

Hopefully, these cops are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. However, if history is any indicator, a jury of apologists will likely look past a severely burned innocent victim and justify the police behavior—as they were just doing their job.
