Tracking Phones, Google Is a Dragnet for the Police

The tech giant records people’s locations worldwide. Now, investigators are using it to find suspects and witnesses near crimes, running the risk of snaring the innocent.

When detectives in a Phoenix suburb arrested a warehouse worker in a murder investigation last December, they credited a new technique with breaking open the case after other leads went cold.

The police told the suspect, Jorge Molina, they had data tracking his phone to the site where a man was shot nine months earlier. They had made the discovery after obtaining a search warrant that required Google to provide information on all devices it recorded near the killing, potentially capturing the whereabouts of anyone in the area.

But after he spent nearly a week in jail, the case against Mr. Molina fell apart as investigators learned new information and released him. Last month, the police arrested another man: his mother’s ex-boyfriend, who had sometimes used Mr. Molina’s car.

Chicago top cop admits some officers ‘look the other way’ at police misconduct

Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson on Friday made the case to keep his $260,044-a-year job even after the retirement of Mayor Rahm Emanuel — and acknowledged that some officers “look the other way” when it comes to reporting police misconduct.

“Do I think there might be officers that look the other way? Yeah, I do. … There are a lot of reasons why cops might not report misconduct. If they see their partner engage in misconduct, they may look the other way,” he said.

Let's see if the killer will go to prison. Not holding my breath though. It is possible that they could overcharge him to trick the family and the public to a faint hope of justice, only for him to be found not guilty because of overcharging or a jury that is reluctant to sentence a cop.

Officer who fatally shot Justine Damond charged with murder, turns himself in

The Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an Australian woman in July was charged with murder Tuesday after he turned himself in when a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Officer Mohamed Noor turned himself in on Tuesday in connection to the 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. his attorney confirmed.

The criminal complaint remained sealed by midday Tuesday, but according to the jail roster Noor was booked on a third-degree murder charge for perpetrating an eminently dangerous act while showing a "depraved mind." The second-degree manslaughter charge alleges he acted with "culpable negligence creating unreasonable risk."

Damond was shot July 15, minutes after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. The 40-year-old life coach’s death drew international attention, cost the police chief her job and forced major revisions to the department’s policy on body cameras.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was scheduled to discuss charges Tuesday afternoon.

Noor, a 32-year-old Somali-American, has not talked publicly about the case and declined to be interviewed by state investigators.

In a statement Tuesday, Damond's family praised the charges, calling them "one step toward justice."

"No charges can bring our Justine back. However, justice demands accountability for those responsible for recklessly killing the fellow citizens they are sworn to protect, and today's actions reflect that," the statement said.

A policeman who was with Noor at the time of the shooting, Matthew Harrity, told investigators that he was startled by a loud noise right before Damond approached the driver's side window of their police SUV. Harrity, who was driving, said Noor then fired his weapon from the passenger seat. Damond died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

The officers did not turn on their body cameras until after the shooting, and there was no squad camera video of the incident.

The lack of video was widely criticized, and Damond's family members were among the many people who called for changes in procedure, including how often officers are required to turn on their cameras.

The shooting also prompted questions about the training of Noor, a two-year veteran and Somali-American whose arrival on the force had been celebrated by city leaders and Minnesota's large Somali community. Noor, 32, had trained in business and economics and worked in property management before becoming an officer.

Then-Chief Janee Harteau defended Noor's training and said he was suited to be on the street, even as she criticized the shooting itself. But Harteau — who was on vacation when the shooting happened and didn't make her first public appearance until several days after the shooting — was forced out soon after by Mayor Betsy Hodges, who said she had lost confidence in the chief.

Harteau's replacement, Medaria Arradondo, quickly announced a policy change requiring officers to turn on their body cameras in responding to any call or traffic stop.

If convicted of third-degree murder, Noor could face a maximum of 25 years in prison, though the presumptive sentence is 12 ½ years. A judge could issue a sentence ranging from about 10 ½ to 15 years.

The second-degree manslaughter charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, but the presumptive sentence is four years.

Jail records show he’s being held on $500,000 bail.

As it has been mentioned previously, we are dealing with a criminal gang. The Mafia has the omerta, this criminal gang has the blue wall of silence. All who participated in this coverup or knew about it and didn't act should be rounded up and charged as accomplices to the killing of Justine Damond.

Light shined on cops’ code of silence

Testimony in the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an unarmed woman after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault near her home has shined a light on officers’ actions at the scene and raised questions about whether they were trying to protect one of their own.

The incident commander turned her body camera off when talking to Mohamed Noor in the moments after the July 2017 shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, while other officers told him not to say a word, according to prosecutors and court testimony. Many responding officers turned their body cameras on and off at will; one had his camera recording while headed to the scene and shut it off upon arrival.

“These are extremely troublesome things,” said Phil Turner, a defense attorney and former federal prosecutor in Chicago who is not connected to the case. “They’re law enforcement officers and they are supposed to enforce the law equally, whether someone is a sworn law enforcement officer or not.”

Prosecutors have told the court that about 20 police officers refused to talk to investigators and met with union officials to discuss withholding information.

US facial recognition will cover 97 percent of departing airline passengers within four years

The Department of Homeland Security says it expects to use facial recognition technology on 97 percent of departing passengers within the next four years. The system, which involves photographing passengers before they board their flight, first started rolling out in 2017, and was operational in 15 US airports as of the end of 2018.

The facial recognition system works by photographing passengers at their departure gate. It then cross-references this photograph against a library populated with facesimages from visa and passport applications, as well as those taken by border agents when foreigners enter the country.

An armed and violent thug attacking a man who was minding his own business in his own property. So this gang member threatened, tresspassed, assaulted, tazed, detained and kidnapped a man, filed a report with false and misleading information and he also turned off his car camera prior to the incident and in the video he places his hand over his body camera several times, possibly attempting to turn it off "malfunction". Even his own department found out about his crimes. What did he get for all the above? He was suspended for 80 hours and now he is "back on the force"...
Of course, no criminal charges, as criminals like him are shielded with special privileges along with fellow gang members who assist in covering up the crimes so they only end up violating "department guidelines" so they get a slap on the wrist. Naturally, if the victim prevails in his lawsuit, the cop is unlikely to pay a single dime from his pocket and once again the taxpayers will be forced to pay for the crimes committed by terrorist groups.

Chattanooga PD officer assaulted, arrested man he mistook for suspect

A lawsuit alleges a Chattanooga Police officer mistook a man for a suspect, hitting him with a stun gun, pointing a firearm at him, and falsely arresting him.

On Wednesday, we spoke with the man's attorney, Robin Flores, who says this is another case that shows CPD officers using excessive force.

Flores says Officer Cody Thomas assaulted and falsely arrested his client, Nate Carter, but police reports tell a different story.

Body camera footage shows a CPD officer hitting a man with a stun gun as he walks away.

Once again, "former" cop in the headline but he was a cop, acting in his official capacity when he allegedly committed the crime.
Press release from a notorious "anti-cop" website:

Former Alabama Police Investigator Pleads Guilty to Assaulting Handcuffed Arrestee

The Department of Justice announced today that a former Tallassee Police investigator, Brandon Smirnoff, 27, pleaded guilty to assaulting a handcuffed, 24-year-old man.

According to the guilty plea, Smirnoff, who was on duty as an investigator with the Tallassee Police Department, used his patrol car to pursue the victim, J.M., who was on a four-wheeler. After the pursuit, J.M. stepped off his four-wheeler, laid face down on the ground, and allowed several Tallassee police officers to handcuff him. While J.M. was handcuffed and compliant, Smirnoff lifted him into the air and then slammed him to the ground. Smirnoff then repeated the assault. Moments later, before Smirnoff placed the victim into his patrol car, Smirnoff slammed the victim’s head into the side of the vehicle. For each assault, the victim was handcuffed, compliant, and did not pose a threat.    

“Police officers who willfully use excessive force not only violate the Constitution, they erode public trust in law enforcement,” said Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division. “The Civil Rights Division is committed to protecting victims of these abuses and upholding the Constitution and laws that protect us all.”

“It is especially important in a climate of distrust between law enforcement and the public, that officers act ethically and within the bounds of the law,” said U.S. Attorney Louis V. Franklin for the Middle District of Alabama. “This police officer’s brutal behavior was unacceptable and criminal. He violated this young man’s constitutional rights and the trust placed in law enforcement officers to faithfully, ethically, and morally enforce the law. You can be sure that anytime an officer steps over the line and into criminal behavior, as this one did, my office will hold that individual accountable.”

FBI Special Agent in Charge James E. Jewell stated, "the FBI supports our state and local law enforcement partners but will not tolerate the intentional abuse of a citizen. The position of police officer should convey compassion as well as trust and we intend to hold that line."

Smirnoff faces a statutory maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

This case is being investigated by the FBI’s Montgomery Division. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Denise Simpson of the Middle District of Alabama and Trial Attorney Michael J. Songer of the Civil Rights Division.

As it has been shown several times, we are dealing with criminal gangs comprised of violent career criminals.
Each count of civil rights violation can be punished with up to 10 years in prison. Each count of false records can be punished with up to 20 years in years. In this case we are talking about multiple counts of the aforementioned charges. Let's see how many decades they will spend in prison, if they actually end there.

Another press release from a notorious "cop-hating" website:

Two Trenton Police Officers Charged with Civil Rights Violations, Obstruction of Justice

TRENTON, N.J. – Two Trenton police officers have been charged with civil rights and obstruction of justice charges for allegedly assaulting a man they were arresting, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced today.

One of the officers, who has since left the Trenton Police Department, is charged with additional civil rights and obstruction counts for allegedly assaulting a second defendant while in a holding cell at Trenton Police Headquarters.

Trenton Police Officer Drew Inman, 25, of Hamilton, New Jersey, and former Trenton Police Officer Anthony Villanueva, 25, of Ewing, New Jersey, are charged in a six-count indictment that was returned by a federal grand jury on April 18, 2019, and unsealed today. Both defendants are charged with one count aiding and abetting one another to deprive a man of his civil rights. Villanueva is charged with two counts of obstruction, and Inman with one count of obstruction, in connection with that incident. Villanueva is also charged with depriving a second man of his civil rights in a separate incident, and with obstruction related to that second incident.

“Police work is difficult and dangerous, but officers need to respect the civil rights of the people they are policing,” U.S. Attorney Carpenito said. “They cannot resort to excessive force in performing their duties. Incidents like these erode the public’s confidence in law enforcement, and make policing harder for everyone whose job it is to keep our communities safe.”

“Civil Rights violations are of great concern, particularly when the allegations involve a member of law enforcement,” FBI Newark Special Agent in Charge Gregory W. Ehrie said. “The public has an absolute right to trust that law enforcement will protect those they serve and keep them safe. When that trust is violated, it makes it more difficult for our fellow police officers and federal agents to maintain the community's  confidence.”

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

On April 9, 2017, a Trenton man involved in a routine traffic stop fled in his vehicle and then on foot and was pursued by Trenton police officers. The man was eventually surrounded by Trenton police officers and complied when he was ordered to put his hands in the air. While the man was complying with further police commands, Villanueva approached the man and punched him in the face and Inman tackled the man to the ground. Inman and Villanueva then punched the man numerous times, while he cried out in pain, and told officers, “stop hitting me in my face,” and “you’ve got my hands.”

Inman and Villanueva returned to the police station to prepare reports in connection with the victim’s arrest. To justify their actions against the victim, Inman and Villanueva prepared and submitted false and fraudulent reports, in which they attempted to portray the victim as the aggressor and an ongoing threat.


On Nov. 28, 2017, Villanueva, who had been assigned to work in the holding cell area of Trenton Police Headquarters, sprayed Oleoresin Capsicum (commonly referred to a “pepper spray”) on a prisoner who was confined in a holding cell. Villanueva later completed an incident report that contained numerous false statements designed to conceal his unlawful conduct and improper treatment of the prisoner.

The violation of civil rights counts each carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. The false records counts each carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. The maximum fine for each of the charges is $250,000.

The charges and accusations contained in the indictment are merely accusations, and Inman and Villanueva are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

U.S. Attorney Carpenito credited special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Gregory W. Ehrie in Newark, with the investigation leading to today’s indictment.   

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Molly Lorber, Joseph Gribko and Ray Mateo of the U.S. Attorney=s Office Criminal Division in Trenton in the criminal case.

A person cannot be safe in his own home even if he has done nothing wrong. Roving gangs of criminals stalk the neighborhoods to invade homes and will even shoot through doors, as it happened here. As expected, the cops got off very lightly with ZERO days in prison (originally just 12 months but all of it was suspended) and 100 hours of community service. Somehow I doubt that if this man had shot the cops through the door he would've gotten off as lightly - that is if he was still alive and not end up dead from 100+ bullets.

New bodycam footage of Link Road officer-involved shooting released

New video footage released following the Link Road incident where two Lynchburg officer's shot a man in the leg.

Below is the footage released by the special prosecutor:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5T2403r_iU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5T2403r_iU</a> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aJC0tSlWQw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aJC0tSlWQw</a>

Two Lynchburg Police officers were charged in that officer-involved shooting.

Walker Sigler was shot in the leg after police said they were investigating an open door at his home on Link Road around 1:15 a.m. Saturday, February 17, 2018.

Officers with the Lynchburg Police Department said they approached the home and announced that they were there to investigate suspicious activity. One of the officers attorney's, Chuck Felmlee, said the officers then heard yelling and heavy foot steps as though someone was running toward them. They say it was Sigler who then slammed the door which made a loud clanging sound they believed to be a gun shot at the time. The officers fired four shots. One bullet hit Sigler and shattered his leg.

Officers Edward Ferron, 41, and Savannah Simmons, 22, were both indicted on three felony counts of reckless handling of a firearm resulting in serious bodily injury, unlawful wounding and unlawful shooting at an occupied domicile. At their trial on Monday, March 25 they both pleaded no contest to amended charges of reckless handling of a firearm. They were both found guilty of a misdemeanor reckless handling of a firearm charge. They were both sentenced to 12 months in jail each, with all time suspended, plus 100 hours of community service that must be completed by March 1, 2020.

Federal appeals court says tire-chalking by parking enforcement officers is unconstitutional

The age-old parking enforcement practice of tire-chalking is unconstitutional, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, saying it violated the Fourth Amendment’s bar on unreasonable searches.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, in a first-of-its-kind decision, ruled that marking a car’s tires to gather information is a form of trespass requiring a warrant, similar to police attaching a GPS to a vehicle to track a suspected drug dealer.

Parking attendants across the country have been chalking tires with big white lines for decades in zones without meters to enforce of time limits and issue tickets. It’s a substantial source of revenue for many cities.

Gregory Higgins, 42, was indicted today for using excessive force against an arrestee while Higgins was a deputy with the Grundy County, Tennessee, Sheriff’s Office, announced Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee J. Douglas Overbey, and FBI Knoxville Special Agent in Charge Troy A. Sowers.

Higgins is charged with one count of deprivation of rights under color of law and one count of making false statements to the FBI. The indictment alleges that Higgins used unreasonable force when he assaulted handcuffed arrestee A.L., resulting in bodily injury to A.L., and that Higgins then made false statements to the FBI about the assault.

The first count carries a maximum penalty of 10 years of imprisonment while the second count carries a maximum penalty of five years. An indictment is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.

This case was investigated by the Knoxville Division of the FBI, and is being prosecuted by Trial Attorney Kathryn E. Gilbert of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and Assistant United States Attorney Perry H. Piper.

He was released without bail but the people who were framed were sent to prison.

Cop busted lying about drug deals: prosecutors

A crooked cop helped put two innocent people behind bars when he lied about observing the men dealing drugs — and video evidence proves that the transactions never took place, Manhattan prosecutors said.

Detective Joseph Franco, 46, was charged with 16 counts of perjury on Wednesday for falsely claiming that he watched drug deals go down in three cases between 2017 and 2018, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office said.

“This detective lied to judges, prosecutors, and his own colleagues in the NYPD about crimes that never happened, and three New Yorkers wrongfully lost their liberty as a result,” said District Attorney Cy Vance Jr.

Franco pleaded not guilty to 16 counts of perjury for falsely arresting one woman and two men.

And that's after all the immunities and special privileges they have, along with laws attempting to conceal their records. Imagine if they didn't have these and they were also investigated, arrested and prosecuted aggressively, reported by their partners in crime and if they were sentenced like ordinary citizens.

A USA TODAY Network investigation uncovered records of thousands of police officers investigated for serious misconduct.

Every year, tens of thousands of police officers are investigated for serious misconduct — assaulting citizens, driving drunk, planting evidence and lying among other misdeeds.

The vast majority get little notice. And there is no public database of disciplined police officers.

To create the first, journalists at USA TODAY and its affiliated newspapers across the country – and media partners including the Invisible Institute in Chicago – gathered records from thousands of state agencies, prosecutors and local police departments.

Starting with lists of officers who lost their law enforcement certification in 44 states, we are making those records available here.

Search the list of more than 30,000 police officers banned by 44 states:

What do you expect from the Coward County Sheriff's office, the same one whose "officers" cowered while school kids were being murdered? This scumbag wasn't even given the usual paid vacation and he's still "on duty", despite lying and closing the door before violently attacking a man handcuffed to a bed.

The video:

As it has been mentioned previously, we are dealing with a criminal gang. The Mafia has the omerta, this criminal gang has the blue wall of silence. All who participated in this coverup or knew about it and didn't act should be rounded up and charged as accomplices to the killing of Justine Damond.

Light shined on cops’ code of silence

Testimony in the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an unarmed woman after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault near her home has shined a light on officers’ actions at the scene and raised questions about whether they were trying to protect one of their own.

The incident commander turned her body camera off when talking to Mohamed Noor in the moments after the July 2017 shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, while other officers told him not to say a word, according to prosecutors and court testimony. Many responding officers turned their body cameras on and off at will; one had his camera recording while headed to the scene and shut it off upon arrival.

“These are extremely troublesome things,” said Phil Turner, a defense attorney and former federal prosecutor in Chicago who is not connected to the case. “They’re law enforcement officers and they are supposed to enforce the law equally, whether someone is a sworn law enforcement officer or not.”

Prosecutors have told the court that about 20 police officers refused to talk to investigators and met with union officials to discuss withholding information.

The excuses this cop uses to justify killing an innocent woman... Btw, this phrase in bold sounds familiar, it has probably been uttered several times to justify wounding or killing innocent people.

Ex-cop: Saw woman at window, fired ‘to stop threat’

A former Minneapolis police officer on trial in the fatal shooting of an unarmed woman testified Thursday that he saw fear in his partner’s eyes, then saw a woman in a pink shirt with blond hair appear at the partner’s window and raise her right arm before he fired his gun “to stop the threat.”

Mohamed Noor refused to talk to investigators after the July 2017 shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond , a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia, making his testimony his first public statements since her death.

“Action is better than reaction,” Noor said. “If you’re reacting, that means it’s too late ... to protect yourself. ... You die.”

First time in 30 years that a cop in Florida is sentenced for killing a citizen.

Think about that.

30 years.

Unfortunately he is not facing execution but at least he may get life in prison.

Notice how most news outlets emphasize the "ex-police officer" or "fired police officer", but yet he was an on-duty cop when he murdered this innocent man.

Ex-police Officer Nouman Raja convicted in fatal shooting of black motorist Corey Jones

A fired Florida police officer was convicted Thursday of manslaughter and attempted murder in the fatal shooting of a stranded black motorist in 2015.

Nouman Raja, 41, faces life in prison for fatally shooting musician Corey Jones, 31, who was waiting for help for his broken down SUV on the side of a South Florida highway when he was killed by Raja.

Prosecutors say an audio recording of the shooting indicate Raja — who was on-duty but in plainclothes and driving an unmarked white van — had never identified himself.

They said Jones, who was returning home from a performance with drums valued at $10,000 in the back of his SUV, pulled his legally-owned handgun because he feared he was being robbed.

Raja shot him repeatedly. A medical examiner testified that Jones was killed by a shot through his heart. The musician, who also worked as a housing inspector, was also shot once in each arm.

25 years is still not enough. And to repeat a comment from the previous post, first time in 30 years that a cop in Florida is sentenced for killing a citizen.

Former Palm Beach Gardens officer sentenced to 25 years for shooting of Corey Jones

A former Florida police officer was ordered Thursday to spend 25 years in prison for the fatal on-duty shooting of a black musician whose SUV had broken down after a late-night concert.

Former Palm Beach Gardens officer Nouman Raja was sentenced by Circuit Judge Joseph Marx as family and friends of the 31-year-old victim, Corey Jones, looked on in a courtroom jammed with supporters on both sides. The 41-year-old defendant, shackled and clad in a blue jumpsuit, was the first Florida officer in nearly 30 years to be convicted and sentenced for an on-duty killing — and one of a few nationwide.

The last Florida officer sentenced for an on-duty killing was Miami’s William Lozano in 1989. The Hispanic officer fatally shot a black motorcyclist who he said tried to hit him. A passenger died when the motorcycle crashed, setting off three days of rioting.

Lozano was convicted of two manslaughter counts in a Miami trial and sentenced to seven years, but he never served it. State appellate court justices dismissed the verdict, saying the case should have been moved from Miami because of racial tensions. Lozano was acquitted at a 1993 retrial.

NSA Recommends Dropping Phone-Surveillance Program

The National Security Agency has recommended that the White House abandon a surveillance program that collects information about U.S. phone calls and text messages, saying the logistical and legal burdens of keeping it outweigh its intelligence benefits, according to people familiar with the matter. The program, created after 9/11, has encountered compliance challenges and questions about its efficacy in recent years.
