Great-Grandma Arrested at Disney World for Having CBD Oil She Uses to Treat Arthritis

A 69-year-old great-grandmother whose doctor suggested she use CBD oil to alleviate pain was arrested for carrying it at Disney World during a trip she and her family had planned for two years. Hester Jordan Burkhalter had scrimped and saved to spend April 15 at the happiest place on Earth, but instead she spent it in jail after she was charged with possession of hashish in Orange County, Florida, The News & Observer wrote.

Her arrest came after an Orange County sheriff’s deputy discovered CBD oil in her purse at a checkpoint to enter the Orlando theme park, authorities said.

Burkhalter had begun using the oil to lessen the pain caused by her arthritis at her doctor’s recommendation, which he also put in writing, she said.

CBD, or cannabinol, is an extract from cannabis and has been found to have medicinal properties. It does not make the user “high,” unlike THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, another extract found in the same plant that is the active agent in marijuana, authorities say.

These career criminals only received 22 months and 18 months prison sentences. What a travesty.

Former Chicago cop exposes criminal cover up in police department, says she feared for her life

A former Chicago police officer -- who risked her own safety to help nab a corrupt officer extorting money from the city's poorest and planting drugs on those who refused to pay -- will have her story featured Friday on the CBS series "Whistleblowers."

Shannon Spalding says she's had her tires slashed and was repeatedly threatened while she helped build the case against a corrupt team of officers run by former Sgt. Ronald Watts.

"Someone was trying to kill me," Spalding said. "When I signed up for this job, I knew I might have to lay my life down, but I never thought I'd have to worry about it being a fellow officer doing that to me." Spalding, who joined the Chicago Police Department in 1996, said she spent time in some of the city's most violent neighborhoods. To survive, she recalled leaning on veteran cops like Watts. "I thought he was battling crime and he was doing it with finesse and grace," she said.

But about a decade later, while on an undercover assignment in the narcotics division, she began to see Watts in a different light.

Spalding said she began troubling rumors as she and her partner would make an arrest, with a suspect saying something along the lines of: "I can't believe you're going to arrest me when one of your own is actually running the narcotics side," Spalding said.

After some digging, Spalding learned the charge was true: Watts and his group would threaten and plant drugs on residents of the Ida B. Wells projects who didn't go along with their rules -- and that type of intimidation had gone on for years.

Spalding was faced with a decision.

"If we don't report this criminal conduct we're absolutely no better than Watts or any of these other corrupt officers. And if we do, we may just be ending our careers and putting ourselves in real danger," she said. In the end, she and her partner went to the FBI.

"My greatest fear was that because this was such a long-running...criminal enterprise...I felt that we would be set up for dead," she said.

Eventually, though, Watts and one of his officers, Kallat Mohammed, were arrested after they were caught stealing $5,200 from a drug courier -- who also happened to be Spalding's informant and was wearing a wire at the time. Watts was sentenced to 22 months behind bars while Mohammed received an 18-month sentence.

Since their arrest, 60 Chicagoans who were wrongfully arrested by Watts and his team have been exonerated.

As if the government goons were not enough, now you have wannabe cops invading and destroying the homes of people. Too bad the residents didn't defend themselves against the intruders.

Miami bounty hunters armed with battering ram storm home over $750 bond, video shows

The armed agents woke up Donald Colas on the night of May 5, surrounding his Miami Gardens home and shining a light into the bedroom where his 2-year-old son was asleep.

Wielding a battering ram, stun guns and crow bars, they stormed the home searching for a fugitive who owed $750 following his arrest for driving with a suspended license.

The bounty hunters broke down two doors, searched under mattresses and quoted a 147-year-old Supreme Court opinion.

The man, Colas’ 28-year-old cousin Berlin Gabriel, wasn’t there. He hadn’t lived there in 20 years, Colas said.

What Colas says he didn’t know: His cousin used his address when police asked where he lived. That gave the bounty hunters — referred to as bail bond agents in Florida and bail recovery agents elsewhere — a right to locate and detain Gabriel at his listed residence.

As private agents licensed by Florida’s Department of Financial Services and empowered by Florida Administrative Code, they do not require a search warrant to enter the home where they believe the fugitive they’re seeking is residing.

“We have more jurisdiction than police officers,” one of the bounty hunters said in a video of the incident. Miami Gardens Police are reviewing the incident. A spokesman did not respond to a reporter’s questions about the video.

The incident demonstrates the far-reaching protections and privileges afforded to bail bonds agents, said Brian Johnson, a professor at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan, who authored a study on the American bail-bonds recovery industry. The Fourth Amendment right to protection against illegal search and seizures does not apply for private entities like bounty hunters, Johnson said.

San Francisco police chief concedes raid on journalist was wrong — ‘I’m sorry’

After two weeks of growing outrage, San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott apologized Friday for raiding a journalist’s home and office in a bid to unmask a confidential source, admitting the searches were probably illegal and calling for an independent investigation into the episode.

Scott said he has now reviewed all material relating to the May 10 search of freelance videographer Bryan Carmody’s home and office, which was part of an investigation into who leaked him a salacious police report on the February death of Public Defender Jeff Adachi — a report Carmody then sold to three television stations.

The chief said he was “concerned” that the applications for the search warrants didn’t adequately identify Carmody as a journalist — particularly a warrant to search his phone.

California’s shield law protects journalists from being forced to reveal confidential sources or hand over unpublished information including notes, recordings and pictures. It specifically bars police from obtaining this sensitive information through searches.

It has been mentioned countless times now in this thread that we are dealing with organized criminal gangs: since 2018, 30 members (!) of the same department gang  have been arrested.


Bexar County deputy arrested on public corruption charges

A deputy with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office was arrested Saturday on public corruption charges related to bribery and smuggling heroin and Suboxone, which is often used to treat opioid addiction, into the Bexar County Jail.

Armando Trevino, who has been employed by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office for five years, faces charges of bribery and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, Sheriff Javier Salazar announced at a news conference. Trevino, 30, is a corporal. He has been smuggling the drugs into the facility for several years and an investigation into his actions has been going on for some time, Salazar said.

A very bad decision.

Supreme Court limits free speech claim in arrests

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said an individual cannot make a claim that he was arrested in retaliation for exercising his free speech if police had probable cause for his arrest.

The ruling is a victory for law enforcement, which argued in favor of a bright line rule that officers could follow that would also defeat possible frivolous claims from defendants objecting to their arrest.

The case concerned a man in Alaska who says he was arrested in retaliation for speech that is protected under the First Amendment. At issue before the court was a question that has divided lower courts: if police have probable cause to make an arrest, does that defeat a claim of retaliatory arrest?

Chicago cop fired for soliciting sexual favors from teenage girl after police impounded car

A veteran Chicago police officer has been fired over allegations he solicited sexual favors from a teenage girl in return for offering his help to get her mother’s impounded car released from the city pound.

The Chicago Police Board voted 9-0 to dismiss Officer Darius Alexander while sharply criticizing the Police Department for its delay of more than six years in bringing the disciplinary charges.

Alexander was on paid desk duty for nearly half of his almost 13 years with the department. Records show he was paid about $87,000 a year most recently.

Once again, criminal gangs covering up for their members. How many other incidents like this are swept under the rug and remain undiscovered? Press release from a notorious "cop hating" website:

Former Federal Supervisory Correctional Officer Pleads Guilty to Civil Rights Offense for Aiding in the Assault of an Inmate

Khristal Ford, 32, a former Lieutenant at the Federal Correctional Complex (FCC) in Beaumont, Texas, pleaded guilty today to aiding and abetting another correctional officer in his assault on an inmate.

According to the plea documents and information presented in court, Khristal Ford was a supervisory correctional officer at the FCC on June 8, 2017, when Ford opened the door of a medical observation cell where A.A., an inmate, was being held. Ford then told a senior correctional officer to “take care of it” and watched as the officer entered the cell and punched A.A. in the head three times without justification. Following this assault, Ford submitted a written memorandum that omitted any reference to the punches and included a falsified breathalyzer photo sheet, all in an effort to conceal the incident and make it appear as if the victim was highly intoxicated at the time of the officer’s assault.

“This type of behavior in our correctional officers erodes public trust,” said Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband of the Civil Rights Division. “The Department of Justice will vigorously prosecute those who violate the civil rights of inmates.”

“When correctional officers abuse their authority like this, it hurts more than the victim of the assault,” said U.S. Attorney Joseph Brown of the Eastern District of Texas. “It damages the whole system, hurting the credibility of the good officers who try to do the right thing every day. We will do everything we can to make sure these kinds of violations are prosecuted.”

Ford will be sentenced at a later date and faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

A former federal correctional officer faces federal charges in connection with this incident. This former officer is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

The Department of Justice, Office of the Inspector General conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael A. Anderson of the Eastern District of Texas and Trial Attorney Nicholas Reddick of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division are prosecuting the case.

So we have misconduct, leaking sensitive information and violating federal law; however, "the prosecution of the Deputy Assistant Director was declined".

DOJ watchdog: Former FBI official illegally leaked court docs, disclosed 'sensitive' information and took gift from media

The Justice Department's internal watchdog announced in an investigative summary released Wednesday that an unnamed former FBI deputy assistant director engaged in "misconduct," including leaking "sensitive" information to the media, violating federal law by disclosing sealed court records and taking a gift from someone in the media.

Nevertheless, the inspector general (IG) indicated, without explanation, that "prosecution of the DAD [deputy assistant director] was declined." The investigation's findings will be referred to the FBI for potential further action, the IG said.

The official became the second high-level FBI employee to be formally rebuked by the IG over media contacts seen as improper. Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe was fired from the bureau in March 2018 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions after an inspector general report revealed that he "lacked candor" when discussing his communications about federal probes with members of the media.

These are the "sworn law enforcement officers" who abuse children and then lie. Even when the child's mother was there they did not allow her to see her son unless they got "permission" from the "officer".
Notice the creative wording to cover up the lies:
"Statements collected by Barnes, and his own report, offer versions of events that deviate from the lapel footage."

Will he be held accountable for abusing this student or does the badge grant him and his ilk the right to abuse children? (rhetorical question)

Sheriff's Deputy Tases High School Student

A 15-year-old special education student at Española Valley High School was tased by Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Barnes on May 10, for allegedly failing to comply with a search.

The incident took place in the High School’s administrative offices, where Assistant Principal Veronica Dean, Deputy Jeremy Barnes and two other staff members were present.

Barnes deployed the Taser in the student's chest area, which the manufacturer warns can induce cardiac arrest or lead to serious injury or death.

On Wednesday (5/29), New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas said he opened a probe into the incident.

"Schools should be a place where students feel safe and protected," Balderas said in a written statement. "I am aggressively investigating this disturbing incident."

[...]

The mother then told Barnes that the student had an individualized education plan that directly addressed the way her son would be approached while at school.

An individualized education plan is a written document developed for school children eligible for special education.

Barnes said the plan did not matter.Barnes refused to allow the child’s mother to be with him in the back administration office.  It was not until medics arrived and asked Barnes to bring the mother to her child that she was allowed to be in the same room with him. Nearly 16 minutes had passed since her son was tased.

Statements collected by Barnes, and his own report, offer versions of events that deviate from the lapel footage.



Sheriff’s Office Maj. Randy Sanches said May 22 when providing the footage following a public records request that it was a “good” use of force by Barnes. He said later that his initial assessment of the incident was not the official stance of the Sheriff’s Office.

Sanches said he was basing his assessment on his training and experience, but declined to say what specialized training he had concerning use of force, or use of force involving juvenlies. When asked about the Sheriff’s Office policies concerning use of force, Sanches said he would have to locate them, but that he did not have time to provide them before press time.

Look at the honorable heroes criminal scum.

7 Baltimore officers federally indicted for racketeering, including robbing victims



Seven Baltimore City Police officers are being federally indicted for a racketeering conspiracy, according to the Justice Department, in an investigative case that was secretly conducted and kept quiet about even from the city's State's Attorney.

The arrests of the officers allegedly involved in racketeering were announced in the U.S. Attorney’s Office on Wednesday morning. The accused officers were reportedly robbing victims ranging from $200,000 to a 'couple hundred dollars,' filing false affidavits, and making fraudulent overtime claims while officers vacationed in Myrtle Beach and gambled at casinos.

One officer is also charged in a separate drug distribution indictment. Sometimes, narcotics and weapons were seized in addition to money and, "in several instances, the defendants did not file any police reports," the indictment alleges.

"These seven police officers betrayed the trust" of not only the police department but also the public, said Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, during a time when the city was "under scrutiny" and trying to heal in a post-Freddie Gray climate.

According to a handout by the U.S. Attorney's Office, the involved officers have been identified as Momodu Bondeva Kenton Gondo a/k/a 'GMoney' and 'Mike,' Wayne Earl Jenkins, Evodio Calles Hendrix, Maurice Kilpatrick Ward, Jemell Lamar Rayam, Daniel Thomas Hersl and Marcus Roosevelt Taylor. All have been suspended without pay and are in custody of the FBI as police are search for more victims who may have interacted with any of these officers under suspicious circumstances.

The Baltimore DEA’s Assistant Special Agent in Charge Don Hibbert explained that the DEA was conducting a probe when they "discovered information in the course of our drug investigation and we were able to work with our partners at Baltimore PD and the FBI and passed the information along and it worked the way it should” have been.

Former Baltimore Police detective sentenced to 12 years in Gun Trace Task Force corruption case

A former Baltimore Police officer who robbed people for the better part of a decade was ordered Tuesday to serve 12 years in prison, the final sentence handed down against members of the corrupt Gun Trace Task Force.

Wearing an orange jail-issue uniform, Jemell Rayam apologized to city residents and the law enforcement community, saying he was raised to know better and had tried to make things right after getting caught. He cooperated extensively, admitting to additional crimes and helping lead to the indictment of at least four co-conspirators.

“I did take an oath to protect and serve, and I broke that oath,” Rayam told U.S. District Court Judge Catherine C. Blake.

But Assistant U.S. Attorney Derek Hines reminded Blake of the breathtaking scope of Rayam’s crimes, which included armed home invasions and drug dealing.

He's shedding crocodile tears now but he didn't even care when he and his accomplice, as prosecutors, withheld evidence from the defense that their victim, Fred Steese, was not even in Nevada at the time of the murder. Yet not only were these prosecutors not sent to prison but they are now County District Judges...

Not only was this innocent man hunted by prosecutors who withheld evidence in favor of him but he was also imprisoned for 20 years.
After many years, a Nevada Eighth Judicial District Court judge issued a rare Order of Actual Innocence, the first of its kind in that court, essentially declaring that Steese didn’t kill anyone. But the Clark County District Attorney’s Office refused to concede it had convicted the wrong man. Instead, prosecutors vowed to fight Steese’s exoneration and to retry him. Assistant District Attorney Pamela Weckerly told Steese she’d agree to release him from prison under one condition: he pleaded guilty. She offered Steese an unusual deal called an Alford plea, which allows a defendant to assert his innocence on the record while still accepting a deal.

Of course these people are covered by multiple layers of immunity and can destroy the lives of innocent people just to add another "successful" prosecution and conviction to their record.

Judge chokes back tears testifying on imprisonment of innocent man

Clark County District Judge Doug Herndon is uniquely qualified to testify about a bill before state lawmakers designed to compensate people who are wrongfully convicted in Nevada.

Herndon’s daughter participated in researching the measure. But the judge’s qualifications go well beyond that connection.

“I was also a prosecutor who was involved in prosecuting a case in which a gentleman was convicted of murder who was later found to be factually innocent,” Herndon testified, choking back tears between words.

As a prosecutor, Herndon and then-colleague William Kephart, also a judge today, withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense that would have proved the convicted man, Fred Steese, was not in Nevada at the time of the murder.

VPOTUS: "Police officers are the best of us".

Multiple sexual assault charges against a 5 year old girl, four of the charges were Class A felonies carrying mandatory 20-year prison terms.

NO PRISON TIME.

No jail time for former HPD officer charged with sexually assaulting child



A former Honolulu Police Department officer charged with sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl for several years will not go to jail.

According to an indictment, Teddy Van Lerberghe assaulted the girl from 2004 to 2008.

Van Lerberghe initially pleaded not guilty, but he changed his plea to no contest earlier this month after reaching a deal with prosecutors.

Felony sex assault charges usually carry long prison terms, but the 45-year-old only faces five years probation when he's sentenced in August.

He will also have to register as a sex offender.

The Coward of Broward has been arrested...

Disgraced Broward Deputy Scot Peterson Arrested

Following an investigation by FDLE, former Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, 56, was arrested in Broward County today on seven counts of neglect of a child and three counts of culpable negligence and one count of perjury. The arrest comes after a 15-month investigation into the actions of law enforcement following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. 

“The FDLE investigation shows former Deputy Peterson did absolutely nothing to mitigate the MSD shooting that killed 17 children, teachers and staff and injured 17 others,” said FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen. “There can be no excuse for his complete inaction and no question that his inaction cost lives.”

Baltimore really is a shithole


More criminal gang activity from Baltimore...

Former Baltimore Police Sergeant Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Deprive Civil Rights for Assisting a Member of the Baltimore Police Gun Trace Task Force by Planting a Gun at the Scene of an Arrest
Also Admitted that He Told a Witness to Lie


Baltimore, Maryland – Former Baltimore Police Sergeant Keith Allen Gladstone, age 51, of New Park, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty today to conspiracy to deprive civil rights, in connection with planting evidence at a crime scene.  As part of his plea, Gladstone also admitted that he told a witness to lie about the event if questioned by law enforcement.

The guilty plea was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur and Acting Special Agent in Charge Jennifer L. Moore of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office.

“Prosecuting criminals who work in police agencies is essential both to protect our communities and to support the many honorable officers whose reputations they unfairly tarnish,” said U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur.

Keith Allen Gladstone joined the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) as an officer on November 20, 1992, and was promoted to Sergeant on December 16, 2011.  Gladstone retired from the BPD on December 25, 2012, but was subsequently reinstated as a Sergeant on December 9, 2013.  In March 2014, Gladstone was the officer-in-charge of a Special Enforcement Section (SES) unit assigned to BPD’s Western District.  Gladstone retired from the BPD for a second time on May 1, 2017.

According his plea agreement, on the evening of March 26, 2014, Gladstone, who was on duty, was having dinner with Officer 1 when he received a call on his cell phone from a sergeant in the BPD who was in a panic because he had just run over an arrestee, D.S., in the front yard of a home in Northeast Baltimore.  Gladstone obtained a BB gun from another officer, then drove with Officer 1 to the site of D.S.’s arrest on Anntana Avenue and Belair Road in Northeast Baltimore City.  Gladstone admitted that he dropped the BB gun near a pickup truck where D.S. lay injured on the ground.  Gladstone told the sergeant, in Officer 3’s presence, “it’s over by the truck,” or words to that effect.  The BB gun was then seen by another BPD officer and ultimately recovered by the BPD’s crime lab unit.  Based on a false statement of probable cause written by the sergeant in another officer’s name, D.S. was subsequently charged in Maryland state court with possession, use, and discharge of a gas or pellet gun, for the BB gun that Gladstone planted at the scene of D.S.’s arrest, and a number of drug offenses.  D.S. was detained on those charges until at least April 2, 2014.  On January 16, 2015, the charges were disposed of by nolle prosequi, which is a form of dismissal.

As a result of his actions, Gladstone conspired to deprive D.S. of his liberty without the due process of law, and conspired to commit offenses against the United States, specifically to impede, obstruct, and influence an investigation.

As detailed in his plea agreement, after the sergeant and six other officers who had been members of the GTTF were arrested on federal racketeering charges, Gladstone and Officer 1 arranged to meet in person.  Gladstone arranged for the meeting to take place in a swimming pool, to ensure that Officer 1 was not wearing a recording device.  Gladstone admitted that during the meeting, he told Officer 1 that if questioned by federal law enforcement about the events on March 26, 2014, Officer 1 should tell federal investigators that Gladstone and Officer 1 were at the crime scene for “scene security,” which Officer 1 knew was not true.  Gladstone also told Officer 1 to tell law enforcement that Gladstone had gotten the BB gun from his trunk, which was also not true, since Gladstone and Officer 1 had obtained the gun from another officer.   

Gladstone faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison for conspiracy to violate civil rights.  U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake has scheduled sentencing for September 13, 2019, at 9:15 a.m.

United States Attorney Robert K. Hur commended the FBI for its work in the investigation.  Mr. Hur thanked Assistant U.S. Attorneys Leo J. Wise and Derek E. Hines, who are prosecuting the case.

Watchdog says FBI has access to about 640M photographs

A government watchdog says the FBI has access to about 640 million photographs — including from driver’s licenses, passports and mugshots — that can be searched using facial recognition technology.

The figure reflects how the technology is becoming an increasingly powerful law enforcement tool, but is also stirring fears about the potential for authorities to intrude on the lives of Americans. It was reported by the Government Accountability Office at a congressional hearing in which both Democrats and Republicans raised questions about the use of the technology.

When seconds counted, the cops were 3 phone calls and 26 minutes away.
Good thing this woman had a firearm and was prepared to use it.

Florida mom holds suspected intruder at gunpoint for 26 minutes

A Florida mother held a suspected intruder at gunpoint for 26 minutes last month while waiting for police to arrive, according to reports.

Lauren Richards, 25, first called 911 just after midnight May 25 and told them someone unfamiliar was outside her Tampa Bay area home, WFLA reported. After calling police, she noticed her garage door, which she usually keeps open, was shut. She opened the door. “He is about 8 feet from me approximately," she told WFLA.

"I have a gun pointed and I need the police to show up immediately," she told 911 in a second call. "I called 10 minutes ago and nobody has shown up."

She reportedly had to hold the gun on the intruder for another 13 minutes before police arrived just after 1 a.m. Another neighbor assisted Richards in holding the suspected intruder at gunpoint after she called him.
