Another "hero"...

This was posted on Monday about a heroic cop being ambushed and shot by unknown attackers:

Quote
The Pineville Police Department has received an overwhelming response of support from our Community following the shooting of our Officer.

We are appreciative of all the offers of fundraising and financial support. However, at this time, we covet your prayers for the Officer, his family, the Department and our City. Your continued support and information for the investigation is most needed.

The Officer is home recuperating and a full recovery is expected. Please know that your support has been shared with the Officer.

We will keep you posted as the investigation allows.

Sincerely,

Chief Donald Weatherford

The usual "back the blue" brigade offered their "support" and "thoughts and prayers" to the "hero".

The next day, however, the whole story collapsed as it turns out there was no "ambush" and he had shot himself and lied about it.


Louisiana Police: Officer Who Said He Was Ambushed Actually Shot Himself

A Pineville Police officer who reported being ambushed over the weekend actually shot himself.

Officials say that Officer John Michael Goulart Jr. initially told them he was shot in a leg late Sunday night while exiting his patrol vehicle at a shopping center near Military Highway and Donahue Ferry Road while another shot hit a rear door of the unit, according to The Alexandria Town Talk.

The department announced on Tuesday that an "investigation led to a determination that the officer shot himself, concealed and altered the facts." Goulart was placed on administrative leave.

The 25-year-old officer was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center on one count of criminal mischief and one count of malfeasance in office. He was released on a $10,500 bond

Bullshit.  You'd go back in time and put yourself on the receiving end of Shizzo's notorious blowjob.  ;D

Female and cop means just 1 year in prison.

Sacramento ex-deputy sentenced to jail for sex with ex-boyfriend’s teenage son

A Sacramento County woman was sentenced Wednesday to a year in jail for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor — the 16-year-old son of her ex-boyfriend.

At the time of the crime, in April 2019, Shauna Bishop was a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy. The boy’s father, who had ended a yearlong relationship with Bishop, also worked for the sheriff’s department.

In addition to the county jail time, Bishop, 46, was sentenced to five years probation and 180 hours of community service, and she’ll be required to register as a sex offender.

She had pleaded guilty in July as part of a deal in which four other charges were dropped.

This "hero" was arrested near the home of a 13 year old after chatting with her online.

His excuse? "He had no intention of engaging in sex but planned to alert the girl's mother about what was going on and call the police".

As if that's not enough, after his arrest he was arrested again 6 months later for the same thing.

Let's see if Detective Butts will end up in prison.

Ex-MCSO detective arrested for trying to lure a minor for sex near Maricopa



A former Maricopa County Sheriff's Office detective was arrested for allegedly trying to lure a minor into having sex near Maricopa.

Police say Christopher Michael Butts began talking to who he thought was a 13-year-old girl on a dating app on March 13. According to court documents, the "alleged minor" stated several times how old she was; however, Butts continued sending messages.

On March 17, he messaged the girl through the app that he was in Maricopa and near the girl's home with one of her favorite drinks. Maricopa police arrested butts near the Cobblestone Farms subdivision off State Route 347 and Cobblestone Farms Drive. As he was taken into custody, Butts was found to have the specific drink the girl had previously mentioned, and the dating application was on Butt's cellphone. Butts told police in an interview that he had no intention of engaging in sex but planned to alert the girl's mother about what was going on and call the police, according to court paperwork.

He posted bail and was released. 6 months later he was arrested again:

Quote
Multiple arrests made between August 26, 2020 and September 3, 2020 are the culmination of a months-long proactive operation to combat child sexual exploitation and child sex trafficking in Pinal County.

Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) detectives led the joint effort comprised of local, state and federal agencies in Operation Home Alone 2, which targeted sexual predators who attempted to lure underage children with the intent of engaging in sexual activity.

On September 2, 2020, detectives arrested 44-year-old Christopher Butts, of Phoenix, for aggravated luring of a minor for sexual exploitation and furnishing harmful items to a minor. Butts, a former Maricopa County Sheriff's Office detective, was out on bond for his arrest in February 2020 for the same charges.

Once again the cops are lying and covering up their crimes. They even tried to blame the victim, a 14 year old boy.

Teen attacked by police K-9 files lawsuit in case of mistaken identity

Police were looking for a white male who had just led them on a high speed chase, after stealing beer and laundry detergent from a Safeway in Firestone on April 27, 2019.

But the person they released a K-9 on and then handcuffed was a 14-year old Hispanic male. Now the teenager and his family are suing four law enforcement officers from three different agencies.

Angel Nunez and his sister had just stepped outside their apartment complex in Fort Lupton to see what the police activity was about, when Nunez was tackled to the ground by officers and attacked by a police German Shepherd.

It turns out the white male suspect had ditched a stolen car in a field and took off running towards the apartment complex, where Angel lives with his family. Body cam footage obtained by the Problem Solvers shows officers running in the dark and as soon as they see Nunez, one officer yells, “That’s our guy right there.”

A moment later, Angel is thrown to the ground and bitten in the leg by a K-9 belonging to Weld County Sheriff Deputy Larry Neugebauer. Neugebauer is being sued along with Fort Lupton Police Officer Bryan Whyard and Firestone Police Officers Nate Morton and Justin Ellis.

A suspect description sent out over police radio had described the suspect as a white male, with dark hair standing 5’9 to 5’10 wearing a black jacket, black pants and white shoes. At the time, Angel stood closer to 5’4” and was wearing a grey hoodie and black shoes.

Angel’s parents are seen on body cam running out of their apartment and confronting officers immediately.

Officer Morton is heard telling the boy’s parents, “Let us do our job and then I will talk to you,” and Angel’s mother, Priscilla Nuzez-Espinoza, responded, “You’re not doing your job, you’re arresting the wrong [expletive] kid, that’s what you`re doing.”

 Officer Morton replied, “They were in a stolen vehicle ma’am.”

Only after Nunez and Officer Whyward (who helped tackle Nuzez) were both bitten by the K-9, can Officer Morton be heard asking another officer if the teenage boy matched the suspect description.

A fellow officer seen on body cam whispers the suspect is White.

Yet, it would be another 25 minutes before police removed the handcuffs from Angel so they could take him to the hospital to be treated for bite wounds.

Moments after describing the so-called similarities between Angel and the actual suspect, Morton mutes the audio on his body cam while talking to a fellow officer about what happened.

“Turning off the audio on their body camera the second they are about to start talking about quote unquote, ‘what actually happened.’ It’s very suspicious,” said attorney Adam Frank.

Just as bad, said the civil rights attorney, is that Morton can be heard on body cam telling Angel he was at fault for not listening to officer commands to get on the ground.

The Problem Solvers asked Firestone Police Chief David Montgomery if officer Morton violated body cam policy by turning off his audio and he refused to say.  But the Problem Solves learned through a public records request that Morton was never the target of an internal affairs investigation.

The Full Report On Breonna Taylor's Tragic Death Changes Everything We Were Told
www.eviemagazine.com ^ | Aug 27th 2020 | By Brooke Conrad
Posted on 9/24/2020, 2:15:07 PM by Red Badger

A lengthy internal report shows Breonna Taylor’s close connection with a convicted drug-dealer — a connection that eventually led to her death.

The report, obtained by the Louisville Courier Journal, contains phone conversations between several individuals and drug traffickers connected to Taylor and/or her former boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover.

Americans have heard a very disturbing narrative about the tragic death of Breonna Taylor: A black EMT was sleeping in her apartment, when cops broke into her place (thinking it was a different apartment), and shot her in her sleep. Activists took to the streets and social media to demand justice for the wrongful killing of yet another black American by racist cops. However, as you read further, the real story seems to contradict the one that has flooded social media over the last several months.

Contrary to initial reports and beliefs, the conversations show that police had good reason to enter Taylor’s apartment on March 13, knocked loudly before entering the apartment, and only began firing after Taylor’s most recent boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired the first shot. Officers’ stray bullets hit Taylor in the hallway, leading to her death.

Disclaimer: This article is simply a summary of the information that appears in the report. The Drug Dealer Police Sought Was Taylor’s Former Boyfriend

Taylor’s association with Glover was initially “disputed,” according to the Louisville Courier Journal.

But according to the report, their association dates back to at least 2016, when cops asked Taylor about a dead body found in her rental car. She said she didn’t know about it, but that Glover often drove her car. The dead man was the brother of an individual with whom Glover had been arrested numerous times.

At the time, Taylor told the officers she had been dating Glover for three or four months. The report also notes that in 2017, Taylor posted bond for Glover on two pending cases.

Jamarcus Glover called Breonna Taylor 26 times from jail between January 2016 and January 2020.

The record also shows Glover called Taylor 26 times from jail between January 2016 and January 2020.

On January 3, 2020, Glover told Taylor he planned to come over for the night. She replied, “When you’re around, I stress more… because I just always be worried about you… not like with you and b****** but just period with the police, like all kind of s***.” They both end the call saying, “I love you.” The Police Warrant Had the Correct Address

Media reports initially questioned whether police had good reason to enter Taylor’s apartment. No illicit cash and no drugs were found at Taylor’s house during the police incident.

The new report shows that officers suspected Glover may have used Taylor’s address, where he also resided, to mail narcotics. On one occasion, detectives snapped pictures of Glover taking a “suspected USPS package” from Taylor’s house to another location where detectives suspected the traffickers were keeping narcotics.

Officers suspected Glover may have used Taylor’s address, where he also resided, to mail narcotics.

Using a pole camera, detectives also observed Taylor’s car parked numerous times outside a “trap house,” where Glover was discovered to be one of the narcotics suppliers. In one instance while parked at the “trap house,” detectives observed Taylor herself step out of the passenger side of the vehicle, look around, and sit back down inside the vehicle.

After Taylor’s death, Glover made a phone call from jail asking where his money was located. “Bre been handling my money,” he said, noting she had “like $8 grand.” The Cops Knocked Loudly

Police obtained no-knock search warrants for all five houses involved in the March 13 drug bust, since this particular drug trafficking group had a history of destroying evidence, using cameras to compromise detectives, and running away. But Taylor’s house was considered a “soft target,” since they knew Glover wasn’t there, so officers decided beforehand that they would knock.

According to Cornell Law, "no-knock warrants" are search warrants "authorizing police officers to enter certain premises without first knocking and announcing their presence... Such warrants are issued where an entry pursuant to the knock-and-announce rule (ie. an announcement prior to entry) would lead to the destruction of the objects for which the police are searching or would compromise the safety of the police or another individual."

The phone conversation records in the new report repeatedly indicate that police knocked loudly before coming in the door. A police briefing regarding the incident claimed that officers also identified themselves as police before entering the apartment.

“They was beating on the door,” Walker said during one of the recorded calls.

Taylor’s house was considered a “soft target,” since Glover wasn’t there, so the officers decided to knock.

It’s important to note that the officers wore plainclothes, according to the Courier Journal, although CNN reported they were wearing “tactical vests.” At the beginning of the call, Walker indicates he thought it might have been a home invasion.

Unknown Male: “So y’all figured someone was trying to home invade you all?”

Walker: “That’s what I thought you feel me.”

Walker also indicated that officers didn’t identify themselves before busting through the door.

he (Breonna Taylor) was like who is it and they ain’t saying nothin,” Walker said. Walker Fired the First Shot, and the Cops Fired Back

The police then used a battering ram to enter Taylor’s house. Glover summarized the chain of events in one of his phone calls from jail: “He shoots at the police, they shoot back, Bre in the hallway and she gets killed.”

Walker’s earlier account confirmed Glover’s statement: “The door like comes like off the hinges,” Walker told CBS News. “So I just let off one shot like I still can’t see who it is, or anything.”

“He shoots at the police, they shoot back, Bre in the hallway and she gets killed.”

Walker’s bullet hit Louisville Metro Police Department Sgt. Jon Mattingly in the leg.

“And so I just returned fire,” Mattingly said, according to CNN. “I got four rounds off and it was like simultaneous. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.” Taylor Was Killed in the Crossfire

Taylor was shot five times according to her death certificate, leading to the termination of Police Detective Brett Hankison, who fired a total of 10 shots, a few of which hit the wall adjoining the next-door apartment.

Keira Bradley, identified as the “child’s mother” in the report, cast the blame for Taylor’s death not on the officers, but on Glover.

“[T]hat girl got killed over you,” Bradley told him over a phone call the day of Taylor’s death.

“That girl got killed over you."

Glover later shifted the blame to Walker, noting that “he fired shots at the police.” Walker Lied about What Happened

When Walker was arrested the night of the incident, the police asked him who had fired the gun, and Walker told them it was Taylor.

"I had no reason to say it, like I say, my gun is legal and everything," Walker said. "Clearly, I was scared. I don't know."

Walker's false testimony led to Taylor being incorrectly considered a suspect at first. Closing Thoughts

It’s hard not to wonder if the trajectory of Breonna Taylor’s life would have been different if she had never gotten involved with a criminal boyfriend to begin with.

Breonna Taylor’s death is a tragedy that indeed should be mourned. But the tragedy was only exacerbated by the widespread political narrative claiming that racist white cops invaded a random black woman’s home to murder her while she was sleeping. As always, it’s better to wait for the facts to come out before jumping to conclusions.

The young man who was killed was white so of course there was no rioting or looting. Had this young man been black it would have been a much different story.

But secretly spending taxpayer money to give to the cop who killed this young man is outrageous.

Overland Park paid former police officer who fatally shot teen to resign

A former Overland Park police officer who fatally shot 17-year-old John Albers as he backed out of his driveway in January 2018 was paid $70,000 as part of a deal to resign.

The city confirmed Tuesday that it negotiated an $81,040 buyout with former Overland Park Police Officer Clayton Jenison — which included $70,000 in severance pay and $11,040 owed for his regular salary ($8,000), compensation time ($2,354) and unused vacation and holiday pay ($686).

The separation agreement came despite the fact the police department and prosecutor's office found nothing wrong with Jenison's conduct.

After a review that was never made public by the Johnson County Officer Involved Shooting Investigation Team, Jenison was cleared of any wrongdoing by Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe and Overland Park Police Chief Frank Donchez.

Sheila Albers called Donchez's comments "false" in an interview Tuesday. She also pointed out there was no mention of any payout for Jenison at that time and said the entire process surrounding her son's fatal shooting lacked transparency.

"The dollars and the data speak for themselves, and I'm stunned," Sheila Albers said. "This was protecting a police officer at all costs, and those costs also mean the lack of truth. This was, in my opinion, a complete abuse of power."

The Albers family won a wrongful death settlement in the case. Judge Daniel Crabtree, a U.S. District Court judge for the District of Kansas, ruled that Jenison was never in the path of Albers' vehicle and did not act reasonably in opening fire on the Blue Valley Northwest student.

An expert the family hired for the lawsuit determined John Albers was backing out of the driveway at 2 1/2 mph when Jenison shot at the vehicle 13 times and killed him.

The killing happened in January 2018 but only now did the FBI decide to investigate.

Feds open civil rights investigation into Kansas teen killed by police during wellness check



Federal authorities have opened a civil rights investigation into the fatal police shooting of a Kansas teenager who was backing out of the family's garage when an officer — responding to a call for a wellness check — fired 13 times.

The FBI will "collect all available facts and evidence and will ensure that the investigation is conducted in a fair, thorough and impartial manner," a spokeswoman told NBC News in a statement Thursday. The agency's Kansas City, Missouri, field office is working with the U.S. attorney's office in Kansas and the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division.

After his death, Albers' family sought answers for what led to the shooting and even for the name of the officer who killed him, which they quickly learned was a struggle because of the state's restrictive public records laws, including for police documents.

A month after the shooting of Albers, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe announced an official investigation determined the officer, who said he feared for his life, was justified in his actions. At the time, Howe and Overland Park Police Chief Frank Donchez said the officer resigned from the police force before administrative action could be taken.

Female and cop means just 1 year in prison.

Sacramento ex-deputy sentenced to jail for sex with ex-boyfriend’s teenage son

A Sacramento County woman was sentenced Wednesday to a year in jail for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor — the 16-year-old son of her ex-boyfriend.

At the time of the crime, in April 2019, Shauna Bishop was a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy. The boy’s father, who had ended a yearlong relationship with Bishop, also worked for the sheriff’s department.

In addition to the county jail time, Bishop, 46, was sentenced to five years probation and 180 hours of community service, and she’ll be required to register as a sex offender.

She had pleaded guilty in July as part of a deal in which four other charges were dropped.

https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/09/24/sacramento-ex-deputy-sentenced-to-jail-for-sex-with-ex-boyfriends-teenage-son/

Even more disturbing details...

She will only serve 6 months (not years or decades) in prison...


Exclusive: Court documents reveal lurid details of Sacramento deputy’s alleged sex with teen

The 16-year-old boy who Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Shauna Bishop is charged with seducing is the son of her former boyfriend, a fellow deputy in the department, court records say.

Bishop, 45, was arrested on her birthday last Thursday and faces four felony counts alleging unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and is scheduled to face arraignment Thursday in Sacramento Superior Court. She also faces a misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child.

Court files provide graphic details of the alleged acts that occurred inside the home in late April where the boy lives with his mother, and describe Bishop as once having dated the boy’s father, who worked with her at the sheriff’s office and is a high-ranking officer in the department.

“Bishop went on to tell (the boy) she watched stepmom/stepson related porn videos that made her (fantasize) about him,” the documents say. “Bishop told (the boy) she thinks about (him) while she masturbates and had wanted them to have sex for a long time.

“She told (the boy) she used to walk around his dad’s house naked, hoping he would walk in on her.”

The documents say that after police seized her cell phone, investigators found “several pornographic web searches (that) revealed she viewed ‘stepmom, stepson’ related pornographic videos prior to the reported incident, and several the day after the reported incident.

“Each video she watched corresponded with the sexual acts performed by Bishop that (the boy) described during his second (police) interview,” the documents say.

Another one of those "finest" of people. This poor girl thought she would get help if she went to the police and instead she was abused by the cop that was supposed to help her.


NOPD officer allegedly sexually abused teen who was victim in case he was investigating



New Orleans police have arrested one of their own officers on charges of sexually molesting an underage girl while investigating a sexual assault she reported.

Rodney Vicknair, 53, was booked with sexual battery, indecent behavior with a juvenile and malfeasance, police said Saturday.

Police said their investigation into the 13-year veteran began when the Public Integrity Bureau received information that Vicknair had “an inappropriate relationship with the victim” at the center of the case. An official source familiar with the matter said Vicknair met a 15-year-old girl while he looked into allegations that she had been sexually assaulted by another person.

Vicknair allegedly began sending text messages to the girl, going to her house during his personal time and remarking how attractive she was and how she aroused him, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. He is also accused of fondling the girl's genitals and breasts, the source said.

Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody indicted on charge related to Javier Ambler case

A Williamson County grand jury has indicted Sheriff Robert Chody on a charge related to the death of Javier Ambler in March 2019.

Chody was indicted on a felony evidence-tampering charge stemming from the destruction of the video in Ambler's death. According to court documents, Chody is accused of destroying video recordings and audio recordings in the investigation into Ambler's death "with the intent to impair their availability as evidence in the investigation."

Jail records show that Chody was booked in the Williamson County Jail on Sept. 28. He has since been released after posting a $10,000 bond.

Jason Nassour, the attorney for Williamson County, also faces the same charge. According to Williamson County District Attorney Shawn Dick, Nassour was booked and released from jail the same day.

Once again the taxpayers are on the hook for the execution of a handcuffed man inside a police car. Surprising they didn't say the victim shot himself. 6 times. While his hands were cuffed behind his back.

Family to receive $20 million in handcuffed man's shooting death

The family of a man shot to death by a Maryland police officer has reached a $20 million-dollar settlement with Prince George’s County, announced county officials Monday.

The settlement, which appears to be among the highest ever paid in a single police shooting death, comes 9 months after Cpl. Michael Owen shot William Green, 43, six times in the back while he was handcuffed in the front seat of a police cruiser following his January 27 arrest.

The night of Green’s death, Owen and one other officer were investigating traffic accidents in Silver Hill, Md., when Green was found in the nearby Temple Hills asleep in his car. Thought to be a suspect in the traffic accidents, Green was arrested and placed in the front seat of the police vehicle where Owen ultimately shot him six times while his hands were handcuffed behind his back. Owen was not wearing a body camera during the incident.

Hours following the shooting, police said there was reason to believe Green was under the influence of PCP and that there were independent witnesses who could verify a struggle in the vehicle before the shooting. The next day, police recanted both claims.

This woman was tried 3 times, the first 2 ending in a mistrial and after the 3rd trial due to, among other things, prosecutor misconduct and an incompetent attorney she received 2 life sentences. She spent 17 years in prison before she was released. As usual the prosecutor responsible for this left the office afterwards and did not spend a single day in prison. The prosecutor's office tries to absolve itself of any responsibility and claims it will "provide training" to "increase awareness". Very smooth talking there and not a single mention of prison time for crimes, unlike how they spoke about the woman they sent to prison.

A Brockton woman who was convicted of arson and the murder of her parents in 2011 was freed Tuesday after Plymouth County prosecutors dropped the charges, making her the first Asian-American in Massachusetts to be exonerated for crimes she didn’t commit, her lawyers said.

Frances Choy was incarcerated for 17 years following her arrest at age 17 on two counts of first-degree murder and one count of arson in the 2003 Brockton housefire that killed her parents. She was tried three times, with the first two ending in mistrials, according to legal filings.

Superior Court Judge Linda Giles, who presided over the third trial in 2011 and sentenced Choy to two life sentences, vacated Choy’s convictions on Sept. 17.

Giles made her ruling based on evidence that prosecutors in the case were racially biased against her, that her nephew had confessed to the crimes, and that her attorney failed to pursue leads that could have exonerated her, according to court filings.

Choy’s parents, Jimmy and Ann Trahn Choy, died following a fire on April 17, 2003. according to court filings.

Kenneth Choy, Jimmy Choy’s grandson from a previous relationship who was then 16 and living at the Brockton home, allegedly told a friend that he planned and set the housefire to get revenge, according to court documents. Jimmy Choy allegedly beat and verbally abused his grandson, whom he suspected of dealing drugs, documents show.

Kenneth Choy was later charged with two counts of murder but was acquitted in 2008, a month after the first mistrial in Frances Choy’s case. Kenneth Choy testified that the fire was Frances Choy’s scheme and he had backed out, according to court records.

He later fled to his native Hong Kong shortly before Frances Choy’s third trial began in 2011, court documents show.

In her order vacating the convictions, Giles detailed a long list of issues with the case, including misconduct by prosecutors and a failure of Choy’s attorney to pursue leads and recruit an expert witness.

Prosecutors in the case exchanged e-mails, discovered later, that included numerous racist jokes about Asians, including references to a stereotypical character in the movie “Sixteen Candles,” Giles said.

 >:( :(
This woman was tried 3 times, the first 2 ending in a mistrial and after the 3rd trial due to, among other things, prosecutor misconduct and an incompetent attorney she received 2 life sentences. She spent 17 years in prison before she was released. As usual the prosecutor responsible for this left the office afterwards and did not spend a single day in prison. The prosecutor's office tries to absolve itself of any responsibility and claims it will "provide training" to "increase awareness". Very smooth talking there and not a single mention of prison time for crimes, unlike how they spoke about the woman they sent to prison.

Just misdemeanor charges and at most 1 year in prison? What a joke. Had the woman reacted when she was violently attacked she would have been charged with multiple felonies and spent many years in prison.

As usual the cop lied on his report to justify his crimes.

San Jose Police Officer Charged With Misdemeanor Assault For Kicking, Dragging Woman In Handcuffs

 A San Jose police officer has been charged with assault and battery under color of authority for kicking and dragging a woman who was in handcuffs across a parking lot in July in an incident captured on video.

Officer Matthew Rodriguez, 36, was placed on administrative leave after the incident in the McDonald’s parking lot on East Santa Clara Street near U.S. Highway 101. The San Jose District Attorney’s Office said the 11-year veteran will self-surrender on the warrant and will be arraigned on the misdemeanor charge. He faces one year in jail, if convicted.

A Door Dash worker was picking up an order when he noticed a commotion involving police and started recording on his cellphone. Seconds into the video, the officer is seen kicking a woman who is on her knees in the stomach after she was ordered out of her car. He then tackles the woman while his partner officer points a gun at her. A passenger and children in the car can be heard crying out before bystanders start shouting at the officers.

In a press release, the district attorney’s office said the woman had complied with Rodriguez’s orders and had gotten on the ground voluntarily. Nevertheless, Rodriguez yelled at the woman, “I’m going to kick you in the (expletive deleted) face,” before kicking her in the stomach, the DA’s office said.

Rodriguez later reported the woman was not complying with his commands, a report that was contradicted by the video footage from both the bystander and the officer’s body cam video, which was not made available. The victim suffered contusions and lacerations to her face, stomach, and legs, the DA’s office said.

Criminal gangs.

Office of Inspector General County of Los Angeles: Analysis of the criminal investigation of alleged assault by Banditos

Deputy secret societies have existed since at least 1970, being noted in a report by Special Counsel James G. Kolts in 1992.
The 2012 Report by the Citizens Commission on Jail Violence (CCJV) noted, “for years management has known about and condoned deputy cliques and their destructive subcultures that have undermined the Core Values articulate [sic] by the Sheriff. These factors have contributed to force problems in the jails as well as numerous off-duty force incidents involving deputies.” The Office of Inspector General’s 2018 quarterly report on Reform and Oversight Efforts encouraged the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (Sheriff’s Department) to implement CCJV recommendation 5.8: The Department should discourage participation in destructive cliques.

Yet, as evidenced by the investigation which is the subject of this report, Sheriff Villanueva continues to promote a Code of Silence regarding these sub-groups. The Kennedy Hall incident investigation uncovered evidence that a group of veteran Sheriff’s Department deputies have undue influence over the daily activities and assignments at the East Los Angeles (East LA) station. Several of the witnesses interviewed identified this older group of deputies as having ties to the “Banditos,” a secret society of deputy sheriffs at the East LA Station. Some younger deputies at East LA allege that the secret group they identified as the Banditos used their influence, and sometimes force and violence, to push deputies out of the station for failing to live up to the Banditos’ work ethic. These witnesses also stated that they were assaulted by Banditos members after an East LA station party at Kennedy Hall. Yet the Sheriff’s Department’s criminal investigation of the Kennedy Hall incident maintained the Code of Silence which has protected deputy secret societies
for decades.

Following the incident, the LASD Internal Criminal Investigation Bureau (ICIB) conducted an investigation which almost completely ignored evidence of the involvement of the Banditos which led to the assaultive conduct at Kennedy Hall. ICIB interviewed nearly seventy-three witnesses. In those interviews minimal questions were asked about the Banditos and in the interviews during which the witnesses brought up the Banditos by name, very few follow-up questions were asked. Twenty-three witnesses declined to give statements against their fellow deputies despite the Sheriff’s Department Manual of Policy and Procedures (MPP) section 3-01/040.85, requiring their cooperation. Having received what appears to be a purposefully perfunctory investigation by ICIB (which did not gather evidence of the motive behind the alleged assault at Kennedy Hall), the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office (LADA) did not request statements be taken from the uncooperative witnesses or empanel a grand jury to compel statements.

Google is giving data to police based on search keywords, court docs show

There are few things as revealing as a person's search history, and police typically need a warrant on a known suspect to demand that sensitive information. But a recently unsealed court document found that investigators can request such data in reverse order by asking Google to disclose everyone who searched a keyword rather than for information on a known suspect.

In August, police arrested Michael Williams, an associate of singer and accused sex offender R. Kelly, for allegedly setting fire to a witness' car in Florida. Investigators linked Williams to the arson, as well as witness tampering, after sending a search warrant to Google that requested information on "users who had searched the address of the residence close in time to the arson."

The July court filing was unsealed on Tuesday. Detroit News reporter Robert Snell tweeted about the filing after it was unsealed.

Court documents showed that Google provided the IP addresses of people who searched for the arson victim's address, which investigators tied to a phone number belonging to Williams. Police then used the phone number records to pinpoint the location of Williams' device near the arson, according to court documents.

The original warrant sent to Google is still sealed, but the report provides another example of a growing trend of data requests to the search engine giant in which investigators demand data on a large group of users rather than a specific request on a single suspect.

"This 'keyword warrant' evades the Fourth Amendment checks on police surveillance," said Albert Fox Cahn, the executive director of the Surveillance Technology Oversight Project. "When a court authorizes a data dump of every person who searched for a specific term or address, it's likely unconstitutional."

The keyword warrants are similar to geofence warrants, in which police make requests to Google for data on all devices logged in at a specific area and time. Google received 15 times more geofence warrant requests in 2018 compared with 2017, and five times more in 2019 than 2018. The rise in reverse requests from police have troubled Google staffers, according to internal emails.

Google said Thursday that it works to protect the privacy of its users while also supporting law enforcement.

"We require a warrant and push to narrow the scope of these particular demands when overly broad, including by objecting in court when appropriate," Google's director of law enforcement and information security, Richard Salgado, said in a statement. "These data demands represent less than 1% of total warrants and a small fraction of the overall legal demands for user data that we currently receive."

The company declined to disclose how many keyword warrants it's received in the last three years.

Reverse search warrants like geofence warrants are being challenged across the US for violating civil rights. Lawmakers in New York have proposed legislation to make these searches illegal, while in Illinois, a federal judge found that the practice violated the Fourth Amendment.

Another one of those "finest" of people, the "best of us", got a sweet plea deal for child molestation. Instead of 20 or 30 years in prison he will only serve 60 days...


Jefferson County deputy pleads guilty to child molestation charge



A Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputy pleaded guilty to child molestation charges after he reportedly inappropriately touched two female victims while they were asleep.

According to police, former deputy Joshua Skaggs, 25, is accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl and a 13-year-old girl on two different occasions while the girls were visiting his house in southern Jefferson County.

Skaggs pleaded guilty to charges of child molestation and sexual abuse. He’ll serve 60 days in jail and be on probation for 5 years.

Allowed to resign so he can get the pension.

Michael Valva, NYPD officer charged in son's death, resigns from the force, attorney says

The New York City police officer accused of killing his 8-year-old son, Thomas Valva, who authorities said died after he was forced to sleep in a freezing garage at their Center Moriches home, resigned from the police department Wednesday, according to his attorney.

Valva, 41, a 15-year-department veteran who has been suspended from the NYPD without pay since his January arrest, appeared briefly Wednesday morning in Suffolk County Court in Riverhead.

Valva’s attorney John LoTurco confirmed after the brief status conference that his client signed his resignation papers.

"He voluntarily resigned today," LoTurco said. "He executed paperwork in that regard today, which protects his benefits and his pension. There's no admission of any wrongdoing. It allows him to forgo any disciplinary hearing and in exchange, he will no longer receive any salary or any future benefits."

Both Michael Valva, 41, and his fiancee Angela Pollina, 42, have pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and child endangerment in the Jan. 17 death of Thomas.

A 3rd grader at East Moriches Elementary School, Thomas, who was on the autism spectrum, died from hypothermia after authorities said he was forced by Valva and Pollina to sleep in an unheated garage as temperatures outside dipped to 19 degrees. Pollina’s attorney waived her court appearance Wednesday.

As it often happens in cases involving cops, important evidence might "disappear".

Mom Says Video Footage Of Thomas Valva’s Death Was Deleted

The mother of Thomas Valva, an 8-year-old boy who froze to death after his father allegedly forced him to sleep in a garage, says surveillance videos from the night of the boy’s death have disappeared.

Prosecutors say there were security cameras in nearly every room throughout Michael Valva’s Center Moriches home, where 8-year-old Thomas was found dead on Jan. 17.

Thomas' mother, Justyna Zubko-Valva, notes there were also cameras inside the garage, where Thomas was allegedly forced to sleep in despite the freezing cold temperatures.

She says there is proof that her 8-year-old son was murdered and she wants answers.

“I was told two weeks ago by the District Attorney's office that they cannot get the images from the day that Tommy died, because, allegedly, they were deleted,” Zubko-Valva said. “But as you know we live in the technological age of everything being stored somewhere and can be, you know, brought back.”

Domestic violence seems to be a not-so-uncommon occurrence with cops. Maybe when all they know is violence and demand "respect for their autoritay", this translates in the home with unfortunate results for the family members.

And as it usually happens, the taxpayers have to foot the bill.

City agrees to a tentative $320,000 settlement over HPD domestic violence case



The city has reached a tentative settlement in a domestic violence lawsuit against a Honolulu Police officer, agreeing to pay his estranged wife $320,000.

The suit alleged that officer Darren Cachola choked his wife in 2017 then pushed her against a wall and terrorized two years later after she filed for divorce.

The city is on the hook because the suit alleges that HPD officers did not investigate her injuries and tried to talk her out of filing charges.

“Here’s the sad thing. This money is coming from taxpayers,” said Ken Lawson of the University of Hawaii Law School.

“When the HPD does not enforce its own rules and allows officers ... to come in and cover up for other officers in cases of domestic violence we end up paying for it.”

But Cachola’s attorney said his client did nothing wrong.

“There’s no admission of liability. He’s taken the position from day one that he did not do anything to his wife," said attorney William Harrison.

The HPD has said it now investigates all domestic violence cases involving officers. It also has said that officers are being provided training to avoid stressful confrontations in their households.

Part of the reason the settlement was so large is that there’s a history of domestic violence complaints against Cachola and there’s a history of allegation that officers covered up for him.

Back in 2014, he was caught on surveillance cameras fighting with his then-girlfriend in an empty Waipahu restaurant.

The responding officers did not arrest Cachola and did not file reports. A grand jury also declined to indict. Cachola was later fired but was reinstated.

“When you commit crimes as a police officer, not get prosecuted, get fired and get your job back because of arbitration and not be punished ... what’s the deterrent from continuing to engage in misconduct," said Lawson.

https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/2020/10/25/city-agrees-tentative-settlement-over-hpd-domestic-violence-case/

This happened in 2014:






Is there a culture in Hawaii that protects criminal cops? Apparently even sexually assaulting a 5 year old is not enough for a cop to serve a single day in prison:

A cop sexually assaulted a 5 year old girl but he gets probation, NO PRISON TIME! Cops sure seem to get some sweet plea deals for abhorrent crimes.

Former Honolulu police officer gets probation in sex assault of 5-year-old girl



Deputy Prosecutor Loren Haugen said in state court Tuesday that he offered fired Honolulu police officer Teddy Van Lerberghe a plea deal in the sexual assault case against him involving a victim who was 5-year-old when the sexual assaults started because that’s what the victim wanted.

“There was one aspect that she did deem quite important. And that by pleading to the charges, Teddy Van Lerberghe could never, ever again be a police officer or become a police officer in this state or any state,” Haugen said.

The victim did not show up in court Tuesday for Van Lerberghe’s sentence.

Somerville sentenced Van Lerberghe, 45, to five years of probation for 4 counts of second-degree sexual assault and 3 counts of third-degree sexual assault, and did not order him to serve any of the five years behind bars, according to the terms of the plea agreement. She also ordered Van Lerberghe to pay $735 in fees into a state special fund for crime victims, $700 into a fund used to investigate and prosecute internet crimes against children and a $150 probation services fee.

In addition, Van Lerberghe must submit to sex offender treatment and register as a convicted sex offender for the rest of his life.

An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment in 2017 charging Van Lerberghe with four counts of first-degree sexual assault and the three third-degree sexual assaults. The state agreed to reduce the first-degree sexual assaults to second-degree sexual assaults. Van Lerberghe pleaded no contest in May.
