No Not if your a Scumbag "Gang" member & you get mauled by your own Dog
Only The Rest of us decent Folk Think They got what they've long deserved & its Hilarious.
No Not at All funny for The Scumbag "Gang" Members Dog - poor thing is shot dead.

Indeed. There are several cases when cops unleash the dogs on handcuffed, cooperative or even innocent people and they laugh at the unnecessary suffering and abuse. However, when it's one of their own that gets attacked, all of a sudden they don't find it that entertaining.

Now Likely in Agnostics eyes There are No Cooperative people in Handcuffs
Or Innocent People Who Get attacked by Police Dogs & Those People
Deserve All the suffering & abuse they Get.  Grin

Plus No Cops are “Gang” members of their own “Gang” & They Don't do any Wrong &
Most Definitely do not Deserve Their own Dogs attacking them.   Grin

How could we say such Things.


I replied for you Agnostic- Saved you the effort.

Dallas police pursue drones for department, vow that they will not be used to spy on people

Authorities in Dallas are pursuing the use of drones to assist in their duties to locate suspects and access areas that are unreachable by helicopters.

Paul Stokes, Dallas assistant police chief, outlined the department’s planned use of the drones during a recent city council briefing, saying the technology would allow officers to make sure a building is clear before entering, assist in fires and large protests and help identify suspects, the Dallas Morning News reported on Monday. According to FOX 4, it seems as council members approved of the idea, with Councilwoman Sandy Greyson calling drones “such cool technology.”

Drone use in law enforcement has been a privacy concern raised by the community, and something Stokes was quick to ensure would not be compromised. The department is hoping to buy five drones at a total cost of about $100,000 dollars, which would also need to be approved by the FAA for use in the crowded airspace in Dallas.

Shoot 50 times and kill the wrong people? Who cares, it's cops who did they shooting, so the DA found their actions justified.

3 Denver officers cleared in shooting death of man who was mistaken for escaped inmate

Denver’s district attorney determined three police officers were justified when they shot and killed a man who had been mistaken for an escaped jail inmate, but lawyers for the man called the shooting “egregious” and are questioning whether the officers violated the department’s policies for firing at moving cars.

As is usual in these cases, the violent criminals charged the victim with "resisting arrest" and "disorderly conduct" in order to cover up their crimes.
Will they go to prison? Will they actually pay the victim in full out of their own pockets? Will they still be employed as cops?

Jury awards Syracuse man $1.5 million: Cops used excessive force in bloody arrest



UTICA, N.Y. -- The jury in a Syracuse police brutality trial has sided with a man beaten in a bloody arrest, awarding him and his family more than $1.5 million.

Alonzo Grant, 57, sued the city of Syracuse and police officers Damon Lockett and Paul Montalto alleging they used excessive force and falsely arrested him in June 2014.

Feds took woman’s iPhone at border, she sued, now they agree to delete data

An American Muslim woman who two months ago asked a federal judge to compel border officials to erase data copied from her iPhone 6S Plus has settled her lawsuit with the government—federal authorities have now agreed to delete the seized data. The case, Lazoja v. Nielsen, involves what's called a Rule 41(g) Motion, otherwise known as a "Motion to Return Property."

Normally, this rule is invoked for tangible items seized as part of a criminal investigation, not for digital data that can easily be copied, bit for bit. Here, the plaintiff, Rejhane Lazoja, asked the judge to return data that she already has—after all, federal authorities eventually returned her iPhone after 90 days, fully intact.

As Ars has reported previously, the government claims that it has the authority to search and seize someone's device without a warrant—otherwise needed in the interior of the country. Federal authorities rely on what's known as the "border doctrine." This is the controversial but standing legal idea that warrants are not required to conduct a search at the border. The theory has been generally recognized by courts, even in recent years.

While ordinary plebs who drink and cause accidents (or don't drink but just drive "erratically") are beaten, tazed, arrested, have blood drawn forcibly or even shot or killed, the situation suddenly changes when it involves a cop. Of course he now enjoys paid vacation.

Cop Crashes His Patrol Vehicle While Drunk and Cries Like a Baby As He Gets Blue Privilege

Piqua, OH — Body camera video was released this week showing the extraordinary privilege granted to police officers when they commit crimes that would get the average citizen beaten, tasered, or even killed. A Piqua police department cop crashed his cruiser, while heavily intoxicated, pulled his gun, refused to obey commands, and was told he could simply “go home.”

On October 27, Officer Justin Augustine drove his police cruiser into a semi-trailer. As the body camera shows, he was clearly drunk out of his mind when he self-reported the crash into the flat-bed trailer hauling a concrete barrier used to separate lanes during road construction.

After Augustine had been taken back to the police station, another officer told the supervisor investigating that he felt the supervisor “needed to go on station to deal with Officer Augustine as he appeared to be impaired and was demonstrating odd behavior, to include hugging and kissing him and other officers and telling them that he loved them,” the report read.

As the Piqua Daily Call reports:

Quote
According to Piqua police reports about the incident, Augustine reported the private property crash, telling his supervisor Lt. Rick Byron of the Piqua Police Department that he was trying to urinate near the southeast corner of the building.

Lt. Byron observed “significant damage to the entire passenger side” of Augustine’s patrol vehicle, beginning at the front windshield and ending on the rear quarter panel. The windshield and both passenger side door windows were broken, according to police reports.

When Lt. Byron asked Augustine what happened, Augustine reportedly said again that he was trying to urinate. Augustine said that he was driving 20 mph during the incident. Augustine would also occasionally yell obscenities while he was being questioned.

An officer observed that Augustine’s eyes “were bloodshot and red and that his speech was slow and slurred,” according to police reports. A Four Loko Gold 14 percent alcohol per volume malt beverage can was later located in the driver’s door of Augustine’s personal vehicle. An empty can of the same beverage was also found near the crash scene.

The Piqua Police Department attempted to have Augustine go to the Upper Valley Medical Center to undergo a drug and alcohol screen due to being in an accident with a city-owned vehicle, but he refused. Augustine reportedly admitted to drinking alcohol earlier in the day, but he refused all OVI tests and was placed under an Administrative License Suspension (ALS).

As the body camera footage shows, Augustine was entirely uncooperative and at one point, he held his pistol in his hand. Had an average citizen done the same thing, rest assured that they would’ve been killed on the spot.

“I’m done,” Augustine told Lt. Byron as he received his blue privilege. “I can drive fine,” he said as he refused to obey the officer’s commands.

“I might as well be dead,” said the drunk cop. Byron described Augustine as “totally insubordinate” in his report, yet he treated him as if he were his best friend. Byron also noted that Augustine was not wearing his bulletproof vest, saying, that Augustine “drove for an hour without a vest.”

Instead of being arrested and hauled off to jail, Augustine was simply cited for driving drunk, allowed to go home, and placed on paid vacation—blue privilege indeed.

Lt. Byron gave his fellow cop so much leeway that he even considered letting the drunken “Augie” drive home—after he just drove his police cruiser into a semi-trailer.


On Wednesday, Augustine pleaded not guilty to driving while intoxicated, in spite of admitting to drinking and having a .14 BAC.

As if crossing the red light at high speed was not enough this scumbag, in an attempt to cover up his actions and project his "authority", even tried to lecture the man who was lying paralyzed on the sidewalk with fractured pelvis and vertebrae, his upper-torso dangling off the curb in a painful contortion. His body camera was conveniently activated after he exited his vehicle. And of course it seems that the cop lied, claiming that he stopped at the intersection among other things. Remember folks, you lie to "law enforcement", you can end up in prison. Not quite the same though when "law enforcement officers" lie.
Now, you'd think that such a dangerous lunatic would be in prison or at the very minimum fired and barred from driving. He is still a cop and he still operates police vehicles.

OPD Cop Caught Making Apparent False Statements After Injury Crash

An Oakland police officer claimed he 'stopped fully' before smashing into a motorcyclist and even lectured the person he hurt. But a nearby surveillance camera contradicts his account.

The DEA and ICE are hiding surveillance cameras in streetlights

The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have hidden an undisclosed number of covert surveillance cameras inside streetlights around the country, federal contracting documents reveal. According to government procurement data, the DEA has paid a Houston, Texas company called Cowboy Streetlight Concealments LLC roughly $22,000 since June 2018 for “video recording and reproducing equipment.” ICE paid out about $28,000 to Cowboy Streetlight Concealments over the same period of time.

It’s unclear where the DEA and ICE streetlight cameras have been installed, or where the next deployments will take place. ICE offices in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio have provided funding for recent acquisitions from Cowboy Streetlight Concealments; the DEA’s most recent purchases were funded by the agency’s Office of Investigative Technology, which is located in Lorton, Virginia.

Christie Crawford, who owns Cowboy Streetlight Concealments with her husband, a Houston police officer, said she was not at liberty to discuss the company’s federal contracts in detail.

“We do streetlight concealments and camera enclosures,” Crawford told Quartz. “Basically, there’s businesses out there that will build concealments for the government and that’s what we do. They specify what’s best for them, and we make it. And that’s about all I can probably say.”
However, she added: “I can tell you this—things are always being watched. It doesn’t matter if you’re driving down the street or visiting a friend, if government or law enforcement has a reason to set up surveillance, there’s great technology out there to do it.”

What the fuck? Let’s read this again:

A Piqua police department cop crashed his cruiser, while heavily intoxicated, pulled his gun, refused to obey commands, and was told he could simply “go home.”

Cops have shot and killed people for holding cell phones. They tackle grandfathers and do it with impunity. They brutally beat handcuffed men and women. If you need more, go back and reread this very thread.

People—regular civilians from all walks of life—have been maimed and killed for much, much less than what this cop did and got away with.

Fact: an encounter with a cop is a scary fucking experience, because your brothers and your sisters in blue are either trigger-happy bullies that are drunk on power or cowards without the moral courage to stomp out the corrupt among themselves and uphold the oath they took.

You’re here, telling us what a good cop you are, and how this shit doesn’t happen in your department. Bullshit. It happens in every department and if you don’t see it, it’s because you aren’t looking. You come on here and defend the indefensible and pretend it’s bevause you have some refined and superior sense of justice.

I respect your opinion, So I don't easily discount what you have to say. But when someone asks my opinion, and starts it off with "anyone else would be beaten or shot" and you and I know that while you are correct there are instances where cops have screwed the pooch, there are many times more where they didn't,  I don't believe the question was posed with any curiosity as to what I might think. Do you?

I didn't really the post you were responding to. Your post was just the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. Maybe the situation was always this bad but we just didn't know it before. But we are in the era of YouTube and Facebook and this shit gets out and circulates, and now it's not just the word of a cop against a citizen's.

The line must be drawn at some point. And that point is here. We as a society need to say to cops "this far, no farther." You (and I use the plural form) aren't samurai, in the service of a feudal lord. And we aren't serfs who must revere and respect you lest our life be forfeit.

Cops enjoy tremendous privileges and are, in all but the most outrageous of outrageous cases, never subjected to any sort of justice. The norm seems to be the sort of talking to that Andy Griffith would deliver to Opie.

If you aren't outraged with the posts in this thread, I got to tell: you're part of the problem. This stuff should make your blood boil. You say there are cases were cops didn't screw the pooch and that's true enough. But you say that like it's some kind of accomplishment. It's not! I submit to you that that alone should be an indication that something is very very wrong here.

Look back. You really don't know of any cop that lied on the stand? Or someone who roughed up someone while yelling the obligatory "stop resisting"? Who didn't abuse their power even a little bit? You really haven't seen any of those things ever?

I'll ask you an honest question:

All other things being equal, if I was discovered heavily intoxicated, having just crashed my vehicle, and I refused to obey commands and pulled my gun, would I just be told to "go home"? I think that if we're being honest, the answer is no: I'd probably be shot and I'd be lucky to end up in a hospital instead of the morgue.

Blue privilege is as real as that thin blue line; the one that cops drew separate themselves from the hoi polloi; it's a line between those whose life is valuable and matters and those whose life isn't and doesn't. This line is just an example of primitive thinking; a form of tribalism-the tribe of the badge. And like all forms of tribalism, it is wrong and morally repugnant.

This line is just an example of primitive thinking; a form of tribalism-the tribe of the badge. And like all forms of tribalism, it is wrong and morally repugnant.

I didn't see the video of pulling the gun. I can honestly say that in my experience, we have arrested cops off duty out of uniform for DWI. Several cases of this. So it is not in my experience unusual to see a cop arrested the same as a citizen. As for your question, no, you would not be allowed to go home. In my experience. the officer would have been processed for DWI. All kinds of policy violations would be initiated and he would face both a criminal trial for DWI and an internal affairs administrative investigation for several violations and would be terminated. So yes, that cop received special treatment no doubt and it is wrong. Going back to the original question, I personally have chased down suspects and had to fight them into cuffs on more than one occasion. When the cuffs went on, the fight was over. There was no beatings. The assumption that if this was a civilian they would be shot beaten or otherwise is something I am not going to agree with. Because I have seen hundreds of times when it didnt happen. But if all I ever saw was youtube video of police abuse, I might very well be prone to assume they are all that way.

Clearly not everyone is treated equally
We’ve seen enough evidence of this & Very likely that is just a tip of the iceberg
To try and say otherwise is just silly.

I’m sure agnostic was a decent cop & acted professionally & means well
The same Cannot be said for an awful lot of other cops.

Previously Agnostic estimated 5-10% of Cops are rogue
That’s roughly between 50-100,000 Now that’s a sizeable Gang / army
Of Armed Villainous Cops.
Not Something to be taken lightly or tried to gloss over.
Then add in the cops who stay silent or worse cover for them
And as can Regularly be Seen it’s A Huge Problem.

When a group of people that was kicked out of a bar for being disruptive, they returned and one of them started firing shots inside the bar. This brave security guard stood up and managed to control the situation, detaining the alleged shooter and potentially saving several lives. Then the cops showed up and killed him.
Since they killed an innocent man, the cops will come up with many excuses and they'll probably claim it was just "a mistake" and "tragic" like they usually do in such cases. As is usual, the cop has not been named yet and is enjoying paid vacation.

Shoot 50 times and kill the wrong people? Who cares, it's cops who did they shooting, so the DA found their actions justified.

3 Denver officers cleared in shooting death of man who was mistaken for escaped inmate

Denver’s district attorney determined three police officers were justified when they shot and killed a man who had been mistaken for an escaped jail inmate, but lawyers for the man called the shooting “egregious” and are questioning whether the officers violated the department’s policies for firing at moving cars.

NJ Supreme Court rules more than 20,000 DWI convictions could be tossed

More than 20,000 Breathalyzer tests might be tossed out after it was discovered the machines were apparently not properly calibrated. New Jersey State Police Sgt. Marc Dennis allegedly mishandled the devices that determine a driver's blood alcohol content (BAC), the state's Supreme Court ruled Tuesday, according to NJ Advance Media.

The justices unanimously found that criminal charges pending against Dennis — who oversaw the calibration of the devices as a coordinator with the State Police Alcohol Drug Testing Unit — made breath-testing device test results from five counties inadmissible as evidence.

The sergeant pleaded not guilty in January 2017 to official misconduct and records tampering charges after he was accused in 2016 of lying about the Breathalyzer machines on official documents. Authorities have alleged he skipped a required step in the calibration process. State authorities, however, have maintained that the step Dennis allegedly skipped was one of several redundancies and fail-safes meant to ensure the readings are accurate. They claim that omitting that one step didn't invalidate the results, noting New Jersey is the only state that requires the step. Dennis has denied any wrongdoing and has pleaded not guilty to records tampering and other charges.

As many as 20,667 DWI convictions could now be challenged, according to state authorities and the lawyer for the now-dead plaintiff who brought the case that the court ruled upon.

The lazy bums didn't even get out of their car yet still claim they "investigated". They must be held responsible for this kid's death.

Body camera footage shows police never got out of cruiser to check for Ohio teen crushed by minivan seat

Body camera footage from two Cincinnati officers showed they never left their patrol car to investigate the 911 calls about a teen being stuck in a minivan last week.

Kyle Plush, 16, called 911 twice on April 10, 2018, from inside a minivan begging for help and providing a dispatcher with a description and location of the vehicle in a school parking lot. Plush suffocated after he became trapped under the third-row seat that flipped and pinned him while he was trying to reach his tennis equipment. Police said Amber Smith, the 911 operator who answered Plush’s second call, failed to relay information to the additional officers who were at the scene.

During the call, Plush explained to Smith the call was not a joke.

"I am trapped inside my gold Honda Odyssey van in the parking lot of the Seven Hills...Send officers immediately," Plush pleaded. "I’m almost dead.”

Smith, who has been a 911 operator for four years, returned to work this week after being put on administrative leave. She told supervisors her computer froze and she was unable to put information into the system. She also told her supervisors she didn't hear the teenager, according to a police quality review report obtained by FOX19.  

The footage showed Officers Edsel Osborne and Brian Brazile driving their cruiser around the parking lot but not leaving the vehicle, WCPO reported. Music appeared to be playing in the background.

"I don't see nobody, which I didn't imagine I would,” one of the officers was heard saying.

“I’m going to shut this off,” one of the officers was heard saying.


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4cW3pp0S4A" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4cW3pp0S4A</a> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyHBOj-Sw4k" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyHBOj-Sw4k</a>

Records showed officers were at the school for about 11 minutes.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the footage also shows the officers did not check all the school's parking lots.

Osborne and Brazile were not placed on administrative leave, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

Tiffany Hardy, a spokesperson for the Cincinnati Police Department, said the footage was “the entirety of what was recorded.”

A Hamilton County deputy who was directing traffic also looked for the teen but did not find anything.

Another officer was told to respond to the scene later in the day but thought the call was a joke.

"I think somebody's playing pranks. It was something about they were locked in a vehicle across from the school, we never found anything. But we'll respond and see what else we can find," an officer was heard saying in the radio transmission.

Plush was found dead hours later by his father.

Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac has called for an internal investigation into the teen’s death and why first responders failed to help him.

Remember this case? The prosecutor will not file any charges... Then again you may remember for example that 911 dispatcher who hung up on emergency calls and even said "Ain't nobody got time for this. For real." and only got 10 days (not months or years) in prison. Don't expect any rioting or protests...

No criminal charges in case of teen crushed to death in van after calling 911

No criminal charges will be filed in the case of a 16-year-old boy who died trapped in his van after making multiple calls to 911 for help, prosecutors said.

Kyle Plush, of Cincinnati, Ohio, died in April from asphyxia due to chest compression while he was trapped in the third row bench seat of his Honda Odyssey in his school parking lot.

Following a thorough review, "no criminal charges are appropriate and, therefore, none will be filed," Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters said in a statement Thursday.

In a harrowing call to 911 in April, Plush said, "Help! I'm stuck in my van. ... I need help!"

But Plush could not hear the dispatcher, police said. An operator repeatedly asked Plush where he was. The teen said several times he was at "Seven Hills," which is the name of the Cincinnati school he attended.

The terrified teen is heard screaming and later said on the call, "I'm in desperate need of help!"

The call disconnected, and dispatchers tried to call Plush back but reached his voicemail, police said at the time.

Officers responded to the area and tried to find the car but couldn't, police said at the time.

In another call to 911, Plush said, "I probably don't have much time left. Tell my mom I love her if I die."

"This is not a joke," Plush said. "I'm trapped inside my gold Honda Odyssey van in the ... parking lot of Seven Hills."

But Plush again said he couldn't hear the dispatcher.

The dispatcher and Plush didn't communicate and the information wasn't relayed to the officers who were still at the scene, police said.

"Send officers immediately. I'm almost dead," Plush said.
