Remember this angry effeminate dirtbag making threats?

Turns out that he didn't "wait for all the facts to come out", as cops often say.

Once again, another crime was committed based on lies and fabrications that the "law enforcement professionals" didn't bother to check. It only crossed their mind to do so after 2 people were murdered in their home. Just claiming "it was a mistake" will not bring these people back and their killing could have been avoided but apparently the lives of non cops are of little importance to these scumbags. Will this killer and his gang be held accountable for the killing of these 2 people?

'You lie, you die' | HPD undercover cop lied about drug buy that led to deadly raid, Chief Acevedo says

In a bombshell development, the undercover cop who led a drug raid that ended with a deadly shootout last month is now the target of a criminal investigation.

The narcotics officer lied in the search warrant affidavit about a drug buy that never happened, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo confirmed Friday.

"That’s totally unacceptable. I’ve told my police department that if you lie, you die," Acevedo said. "When you lie on an affidavit, that's not sloppy police work, that's a crime."

The case agent obtained a search warrant to conduct the no-knock raid on Jan. 28 after he swore a confidential informant bought heroin at the home the night before. He said the informant told him he saw a 9mm handgun and a large amount of heroin in the house.

Turns out, there never was a drug buy at the house or an informant who saw a large amount of heroin and weapons.

Remember that union goon's outrage about cops being victimized and shot, with the whole narrative about "war on cops"? He is not very vocal now.
It seems that it took some members of his gang to get shot to end the no knock warrants, instead of the members of his gang who invaded the house of an innocent couple and killed them.

Houston Police To Cease 'No Knock' Warrants, Chief Announces After Deadly Raid

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo says his department will stop serving "no knock" search warrants, weeks after a raid on a house left two married suspects dead and five officers injured. Acevedo also reiterated that the officer who led that raid may face criminal charges.

"The no-knock warrant's going to go away, kind of like leaded gasoline in our city," Acevedo said. He added that raids that stem from those warrants would only be used in very limited cases — and that they would not be used to nab people suspected of dealing small amounts of drugs.

No heroin was found at the residence, and Acevedo and the Houston police were forced to backtrack after initially saying the two suspects had opened fire on officers as soon as they reached the door of the house in the Pecan Park neighborhood, south of downtown Houston. The official narrative changed after it emerged that the police seemed to have opened fire first — shooting the couple's dog.

Now let's see if anyone will end up in prison for the murder of this couple.

FBI opens civil rights investigation into botched Houston drug bust, police chief says

The FBI has launched an independent civil rights investigation into the conduct of officers involved  in the botched no-knock drug raid that left two people dead and five officers wounded, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said Wednesday at a City Hall press conference.

The probe is the latest aftershock after last month's deadly drug raid, which left two people dead, thrown the Houston Police Department into turmoil, and sent city and county leaders scrambling to contain a burgeoning scandal.

If the above wasn't enough, this lying criminal is the reason why 1400 cases that he's been involved in will be re-evaluated. Aside from any charges about the killing of the 2 people, will he also have to pay the costs for all the hours and resources that will be spent on re-examining these cases, as well as any charges for people who were wrongfully convicted and tortured because of his lies?

DA Ogg announces reviews of 1400 cases

The Harris County District Attorney's Office has launched a review of more than 1,400 criminal cases spanning Houston Police Officer Gerald Goines' decades-long career. Twenty-seven of those cases are active.
“Our duty is to see that justice is done in every case,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said. “Although the criminal investigation of Officer Goines is ongoing, we have an immediate ethical obligation to notify defendants and their lawyers in Goines' other cases to give them an opportunity to independently review any potential defenses."

Good decision, unanimous as well, even though it does not eliminate theft committed by government. Interestingly enough, according to the NY Times, the decision was written by Ginsburg.

Supreme Court Limits Police Powers to Seize Private Property

The Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that the Constitution places limits on the ability of states and localities to take and keep cash, cars, houses and other private property used to commit crimes.

The practice, known as civil forfeiture, is a popular way to raise revenue and is easily abused, and it has been the subject of widespread criticism across the political spectrum. The court’s decision will open the door to new legal arguments when the value of the property seized was out of proportion to the crimes involved.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/20/us/politics/civil-asset-forfeiture-supreme-court.html


Of course police state advocate Kamala Harris wasted no time to tweet about this and even claimed that "excessive fines and confiscation of property lead to the criminalization of poverty". She didn't seem to think that about civil asset forfeiture when she was Attorney General in California:

Quote
As California attorney general, Kamala Harris opposed a 2011 law restraining the practice of civil asset forfeiture. In 2015 she sponsored a bill to allow authorities to seize suspects’ assets before filing charges. That year California forfeitures totaled $50 million.

Death of South Carolina DUI suspect raises questions, prompts investigation

A form refusing medical treatment was signed by an officer — not the man himself — raising questions about why he wasn’t taken to the hospital.


State investigators are reviewing a case where a DUI suspect died after an officer — not the suspect — signed a form refusing medical treatment. The man, Nathaniel Rhodes, 58, had eight broken ribs and a ruptured liver when he died, according to medical records.

Rhodes crashed his van last August and, according to a police report, the father of three was already on a stretcher in an ambulance when an officer decided to conduct a field sobriety test after finding an open bottle of wine in his van. According to the report, Rhodes told the officer that “he had no injuries that would stop him from completing the tests” and then after being taken out of the ambulance, “failed to maintain his balance” during the tests.

Instead of being taken to the hospital, Rhodes was sent to the police station to be booked for DUI.

A form refusing medical treatment lists a signature to be provided by the patient, in this case Rhodes, or a guardian. But instead, an officer on the scene signed the form — raising questions about why Rhodes wasn’t taken to the hospital.

So this guy is issuing threats now.

Notice, the list contains 12,000 names, that is quite a lot of "very few bad apples".

California keeps a secret list of criminal cops, but says you can’t have it
Attorney General warns reporters it's illegal to possess list of thousands of cop convictions


Their crimes ranged from shoplifting to embezzlement to murder. Some of them molested kids and downloaded child pornography. Others beat their wives, girlfriends or children.

The one thing they had in common: a badge.

Thousands of California law enforcement officers have been convicted of a crime in the past decade, according to records released by a public agency that sets standards for officers in the Golden State.

The revelations are alarming, but the state’s top cop says Californians don’t have a right to see them. In fact, Attorney General Xavier Becerra warned two Berkeley-based reporters that simply possessing this never-before-publicly-released list of convicted cops is a violation of the law.

The documents provide a rare glimpse at the volume of officer misconduct at a time of heightened interest over police accountability. The list includes cops who trafficked drugs, cops who stole money from their departments and even one who robbed a bank wearing a fake beard. Some sexually assaulted suspects. Others took bribes, filed false reports and committed perjury. A large number drove under the influence of drugs and alcohol — sometimes killing people on the road.

The Berkeley journalists chose not to publish the entire list until they could spend more time reporting to avoid misidentifying people among the nearly 12,000 names in the documents.

FOIA?

He only cares about FOIA when it comes to him going against the Trump admin but when it comes to crimes of cops he doesn't seem to like transparency. About what you'd expect from a California AG.

Quote
The California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training — known as POST — provided the information last month in response to routine Public Records Act requests from reporters for the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley and its production arm, Investigative Studios. But when Becerra’s office learned about the disclosure, it threatened the reporters with legal action unless they destroyed the records, insisting they are confidential under state law and were released inadvertently.

See this as well:

First Amendment Coalition Sues CA Attorney General to Force Disclosure of Police Misconduct Files

The First Amendment Coalition (FAC) filed suit today against California Attorney General Xavier Becerra for failing to comply with the state’s new, landmark police transparency law.
The suit, filed in San Francisco Superior Court, seeks the release of records regarding serious police misconduct—records that all state and local agencies are now required to disclose under Senate Bill 1421. The bill, which went into effect on Jan. 1, requires the disclosure of files that have been confidential for decades, including those involving police shootings and accusations of police misconduct.

The California Department of Justice, under the authority of the Attorney General, is one of a relatively small number of agencies that has refused to comply with the law. FAC requested records from the department under SB 1421 on January 4, but it refused to disclose the records in a response sent on January 28, prompting FAC’s lawsuit.

“As the highest law enforcement officer in the state, the Attorney General has an obligation to not only comply with the California Public Records Act, but to send the right message about transparency to police departments across the state,” said FAC Executive Director David Snyder. “Unfortunately, the Attorney General has done neither. By denying public access to these crucial files, he has given a green light to other departments to disregard the new law.”

Police unions across California have been working to undermine the law by arguing it doesn’t apply to records prior to Jan. 1 of this year. FAC has led media coalitions to work to defeat these efforts in various counties, including successfully opposing an attempt by a police union in San Bernardino County—the California Supreme Court denied the union’s request to make the law apply only after Jan. 1 after FAC filed a briefing to block the last-ditch effort.

FAC and a media coalition also prevailed last week in Contra Costa County Superior Court where a judge sided with the organization and denied a preliminary injunction sought by police unions. A similar attempt is taking place in Los Angeles County and multiple other counties around the state.

You've mentioned it previously that even if we consider the "very few bad apples" that cops often say we are still talking about many tens of thousands of criminals across the country. Now in this case, whether you look at it percentage wise or absolute numbers-wise, we see that the "very few bad apples" turn out to be 12000 in California alone. And on top of that you have the Attorney General trying to prevent the public from knowing about these criminals.

Sadly it’s outrageous that the authorities are keeping these people in such a crucial job where they
Can exploit their power of law - it’s no wonder there is such bad feeling & distrust about policing.
As for the attorney general his actions are Traitorous to the people.
In 2019 in some areas it appears it’s no better than some 3rd world / dictatorship countries.
Awful state of affairs.

This level of abuse is horrifying but not unusual for those of his ilk. But aside from the actions of this violent criminal (his mugshot below), why did the others stand idle? Why didn't they subdue him and arrest him? If they let him commit this abuse they are accessories to the crime.
But you may ask "Was he punished? What happened to him?" Well, he was on paid vacation for 2 years (!) collecting $120,000 (!!) and now he was allowed to resign and will also get another $10,000 (!!!). But he'll have to pay a $150 fine... He'll probably go work in another city/county/state and, more likely than not, commit similar abuses in the future.

‘You Ain’t Seen Excessive Force Yet’: Ramsey Co. Deputy To Resign After Video Shows Him Assaulting Inmate



A Ramsey County correctional officer says he plans to resign after a video shows him attacking an inmate. The resignation of deputy Travis Vandewiele comes two years after inmate Terrell Johnson complained the officer used excessive force while restraining him.

Vandewiele was charged by the Minneapolis City Attorney’s Office with two counts of fifth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

As part of a plea agreement Vandewiele pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and paid a $150 fine.

Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher says there have been — and will be more — changes, including additional training and the hiring of more supervisors.

When Vandewiele resigns with no discipline on Feb. 28, he will be given almost $10,000 in vacation and sick time.

For the two years he was on paid administrative leave, Vandewiele collected more than $120,000 in salary.

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.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/03/20/officer-who-fatally-shot-justine-damond-turns-himself-in-charges-pending.html

Remember this case?
Once again we see that the killer exhibited warning signs previously and it finally came down to murdering an innocent woman. Before killing Justine Damond, he pointed a gun at a motorist that he stopped for not using a turn signal. Once again we see that bodycams were either not turned on or only turned on until halfway through the incident. The motorist didn't realize at the time how lucky he was he wasn't shot by this violent thug. Naturally, the thug's lawyers want to keep this video out of court.

KARE 11 Investigates: Video of Officer Noor traffic stop

Months before the shooting death of Justine Damond and the international headlines that followed, prosecutors say there was a routine traffic stop that shows former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor had a history of “unnecessarily escalating force.”

KARE 11 obtained police dashcam video – never seen publicly before – of the May 18, 2017 traffic stop.



Even though he approached the car with his gun drawn, officer Noor never turned on his body camera.

Officer Justin Schmidt also had his weapon drawn when he walked up to the other side of the car but didn’t activate his body camera until halfway through the incident.


So, what happened as a result of the traffic stop? The driver was ticketed for failing to obey traffic signs and signal. But it was thrown out by a judge when neither officer showed up to court.

The incompetent buffoons strike again. This time the "professional investigators" arrested and humiliated an innocent man. Of course don't expect the buffoons to go to prison or pay a dime out of their pockets.

Florida prostitution ring: Charges dropped as man mistakenly arrested in spa investigation

 Charges against one of the dozens of men arrested in the ongoing sex spa case were dropped, as investigators say the arrest was a case of mistaken identity, a sheriff's official said Friday.

S. P., 47, was arrested Feb. 25 on misdemeanor charges of use of a structure or conveyance for prostitution and soliciting prostitution.

Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Dougherty said P., of Jensen Beach, was wrongly identified as having patronized Florida Therapy Spa for sex acts in Stuart on Nov. 19.

Meanwhile, Indian River County Sheriff’s Maj. Eric Flowers said one of the dozens of so-called “johns” arrested in a spa case in his jurisdiction was misidentified, but Flowers did not release the name.

In Martin County, the confusion came as investigators researched the four-door Porsche in which the man who actually received the sex services left.

Naturally the criminals and their gangs are not happy with the decision. Ironic that they don't give a shit about the rights or the privacy of innocent citizens but they only care when it comes to covering up crimes by cops.

Orange County Judge Orders Police Records Unsealed

 A judge in Southern California lifted a temporary seal on Orange County police misconduct records Thursday, striking another blow to police unions who’ve argued in courts across the state that unsealing the records violates officers’ constitutional rights to privacy. The new California law opens up access to previously shielded internal records on police shootings, complaints of sexual assault by officers and internal records on police misconduct.

Attorneys for the Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs sought to stop the release of records, arguing in court papers that state lawmakers were unclear whether they intended for the law – which took effect on Jan. 1 – to apply to all records, including those that cover past incidents.

But Orange County Superior Court Judge Nathan Scott denied the union’s request for a preliminary injunction, saying in a 10-page order Thursday that the temporary restraining order he approved will be lifted on March 15 in a timeline that allows the union to appeal the ruling if they choose.

Scott dismissed the union’s argument that officers’ privacy protections were at risk, saying in the order that the disclosure of misconduct records was a matter of public interest and that it is “unknown whether any released information will actually harm the officer.”

Another police racket.

NYPD Puts Up "No Parking" Signs for Department Flag Football Game

When Tasha Darbes tried to park her car on West 218th Street early Sunday, she noticed temporary “No Parking” signs were everywhere.

"I assumed it was for construction, and there was no time," said Darbes, an Inwood resident. "So, I didn't know what time I would need to move my car by, so I went and parked in the local garage."

Darbes soon learned the "No Parking" signs were not for construction, but for the NYPD.

The street is home to Columbia University's athletic fields, and the NYPD was hosting its flag football championship there Sunday.

Members of the department took the spaces so they could park there for the game.

Columbia told NY1 "no parking" signs are never put up on 218th Street when several thousand people attend the school's football games in the fall.


The NYPD said it relocated 30 cars by tow.

I've said it before that these are criminal gangs. Here is a prime example.
25 years is not enough. This career criminal and the rest of his criminal gang should have been executed. Slowly.

Rogue Baltimore police unit ringleader Wayne Jenkins sentenced



The leader of a rogue Baltimore police unit sobbed as he was sentenced to 25 years in prison in a corruption scandal prosecutors called "breathtaking". Ex-police sergeant Wayne Earl Jenkins apologised in court for the crimes he committed while heading an elite squad called the Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF).

"I'm wrong, God knows I'm wrong," the 37-year-old said. "I'm so sorry to the citizens of Baltimore."

He was arrested along with almost every member of the unit in March 2017. Jenkins must serve three years of supervised release after his custodial sentence.

He was convicted on multiple counts including racketeering, robbery and falsification of records.

Jenkins pleaded guilty in January and admitted taking part in at least 10 robberies of Baltimore citizens, planting drugs on innocent people and re-selling drugs he stole from suspects on an almost daily basis, including heroin, cocaine and prescription painkillers.

He walked into the court wearing a maroon prison uniform. It was his first public appearance since he was arrested along with six other officers last year.

Prosecutors urged the judge to sentence him to the maximum 30 years, adding that the unit's corruption resulted in 1,700 criminal cases being thrown out.

"The largest share of the blame, the largest share of those crimes belongs to him," US attorney Leo Wise told the court.

"He perverted the criminal justice system."

The GTTF was made up of eight officers, all but one of whom were indicted.

Detectives Maurice Ward, Evodio Hendrix, Momodu Gondo and Jemell Rayam all pleaded guilty.





Detectives Daniel Hersl and Marcus Taylor went forward to trial and a jury found them guilty of robbery, extortion and fraud in February.

A former member of the unit, Sergeant Thomas Allers, also pleaded guilty.

Although the indicted officers committed many robberies individually before joining the Gun Trace Task Force, prosecutors charge that they grew bolder and more prolific after Jenkins took over the unit in June 2016.

According to testimony from Ward and Hendrix, Jenkins played an outsized role in the schemes.

They said he prepared an arsenal of weapons and tools to begin carrying out burglaries.

The jury was shown axes, machetes and pry bars, as well as black masks that were found in Jenkins' van after his arrest.


Prosecutors pointed to the fact that Jenkins fabricated evidence, like producing a bogus iPhone video of his officers cracking a drug dealer's safe, when they had in fact already broken into it and stolen $200,000 in cash.

"It shows what a committed, sophisticated, devious person can do," Mr Wise said. "What chance do we have when you have people like Jenkins and his co-defendants fabricating evidence?"

As it has been mentioned several times, we are dealing with organized and violent criminal gangs, not just "very few bad apples". Below is another example. How many other gangs continue their crime spree because of cover-ups and witness intimidation like this?

Former BPD Sergeant Allegedly Helped GTTF Member By Planting Gun At Arrest Scene, Telling Witness To Lie



A former Baltimore police sergeant faces federal indictment for several charges related to allegedly assisting a member of the Baltimore Police Gun Trace Task Force.

A federal grand jury has indicted Baltimore Police Sergeant Keith Allen Gladstone, 51, of New Park, Pennsylvania on federal charges of conspiracy to deprive civil rights, conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States and witness tampering.

Do you believe them? How many other secret surveillance programs are they using?

Also, notice the crafty language: "[the "irregularities"] resulted in the production to NSA of some (call data records) that NSA was not authorized to receive"

House aide: NSA has shut down phone call record surveillance

The most controversial National Security Agency surveillance program, originally exposed by documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, has apparently ended quietly, according to the National Security Advisor to Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. In a discussion recorded for the Lawfare Podcast released on March 2, Luke Murry said that the NSA was no longer collecting call detail records—the metadata associated with phone calls and text messages—and that the Trump administration had not used the program for over six months.

The program, launched under authority claimed by the George W. Bush administration under the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001, originally collected all call records from telecommunications providers to search for patterns of connections between persons of interest. But bulk collection was ended under the Obama Administration in 2015, and a new process—targeted collection under Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrants from records retained by telecommunications companies—was codified by Title V of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 2015 and the USA Freedom Act of 2015

However, the new program had some technical problems. In June of 2018, the NSA announced that the agency was deleting all call-detail records it had acquired from telecommunications providers since 2015 because analysts discovered "technical irregularities" in the data being provided by the telecommunications companies. Those irregularities "also resulted in the production to NSA of some (call data records) that NSA was not authorized to receive," an NSA spokesperson said in an official release. Those records were of US citizens and residents not covered by FISA warrants.

South Florida Cop Charged in Shooting Death of Corey Jones Because of Audio Recording

Palm Beach Gardens police officer Nouman Raja had no idea he was being audio recorded when he pulled up to Corey Jones at 3 a.m. on the side of the road last year and killed him.

But it was that audio recording that led to his indictment today where he is now facing life in prison.

And he deserves nothing less.

He not only pulled up to Jones in an unmarked vehicle wearing plainclothes on October 18, 2015, he never identified himself as an officer.

And as we’ve seen so many times before, he rewrote the narrative as to what led to the shooting when he called 911 minutes after killing Jones.

But Jones, a 31-year-old drummer who had broken down on the side of an off-ramp on Interstate 95, was on the phone with a tow truck dispatcher when Raja pulled up.

And we all know those calls are always recorded for “quality assurance.”

But the recording became quality evidence against Raja.

The grand jury indicted Raja on one count of manslaughter by culpable negligence, a second-degree felony that carries a sentence of up to 15 years in prison, as well as one count of attempted first-degree murder with a firearm, which can send him to prison for life.

Perhaps the legal experts will explain how a cold-blooded murder can turn into attempted murder, but if it lands him in prison for life, then it’s all good.

Raja had claimed he was in fear for his life, of course, claiming Jones pulled out a gun on him after he had identified himself as a police officer.

He even said Jones had charged him. Textbook police fiction from the cop with a history of disciplinary problems who was also a certified firearms instructor.

But forensics indicate Jones was running from Raja as he was being shot.

The recording, which became the key piece of evidence against Raja, captured the following exchange, according to the charging documents, which you can read here.

Jones: Huh?

Raja: You good?

Jones: I’m good

Raja: Really?

Special:
Jones: Yeah, I’m good.

Raja: Really?

Jones: Yeah

Raja: Get your fucking hands up! Get your fucking hands up!

Jones: Hold on!

Raja: Get your fucking hands up! Drop!

Raja then fired three time, causing the dispatcher to gasp, “oh my gosh!”

And he fired three more shots ten seconds later.

He then called 911 and before the dispatcher could respond, he said, “drop that fucking gun right now.”

And then he stated the following:

“I came out, I saw him come out with a handgun. I gave him commands, I identified myself, and he turned, pointed the gun at me, and started running. I shot him.”

Raja has been taken into custody.

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.
