He should be; a lot of them should be. But they won't be.


Conveniently selective retort, carmen.

Sacramento sheriff releases first internal records under new law. Files show deputy lied - Sacramento Bee

Quote:
Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones released his office’s first disciplinary records under a new transparency law Friday, a 10-year-old case involving the firing of a deputy for dishonesty.

The case involved the termination of Deputy Steve Al Vasquez over a June 18, 2008, traffic stop in which sheriff’s investigators concluded Vasquez was “either deliberately untruthful or woefully lacking in accuracy” in reports he filed on an arrest he made that day.

“The ultimate question remains, however, of whether Deputy Vasquez was dishonest or merely negligent, as he would have us believe,” an Oct. 1, 2009, memo from then-Undersheriff Mark Iwasa that is included in the newly released file states. “In the final analysis, I think it is a distinction without a difference, because he was either deliberately dishonest, or he was so extremely negligent as to forever cast doubt on his ability to recall, relate and testify to events to a degree required of any peace officer.

“Either way, he has once again proven that he is unable to satisfactorily carry out his duties as a peace officer.”

Reached Friday, Vasquez expressed surprise at the release of the 108 pages in disciplinary documents, and asked for a copy to be emailed to him before commenting.

The documents were released under SB 1421, a law that took effect Jan. 1 and requires law enforcement agencies to release documents, videos and other materials associated with use-of-force or disciplinary cases.

Sheriff Scott Jones initially had balked at releasing such materials and The Sacramento Bee sued to force release. But once an appellate court upheld the validity of the law Jones told The Bee in April that he would begin releasing such records as quickly as possible.

The Bee initially sought five years’ worth of such files, but the release Friday dates back to a case 10 years ago and paints the department in a favorable light as investigators probed into a traffic stop that eventually cost Vasquez his career.

The internal affairs files say investigators determined Vasquez “made dishonest statements” in both his crime report and his probable cause statement for why he stopped the motorist, whose name and identifying information is redacted.

According to the documents, Vasquez claimed he saw the suspect car “swerving between lanes,” but a review of his in-car camera video “shows the suspect’s vehicle remaining well centered within his lane the entire time.”

Police officer admits he falsified Eric Garner’s charges after fatal chokehold during trial - Grio (AP)

Quote:
After Eric Garner died during a confrontation with New York City police in 2014, one officer involved in the struggle says he wrote up paperwork exaggerating the seriousness of the dead man’s suspected crime.

Officer Justin D’Amico testified Tuesday during the disciplinary trial of officer Daniel Pantaleo. Pantaleo is accused of placing Garner in a banned chokehold during the arrest.

Garner was suspected of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes.

After he died, D’Amico said he filled out arrest papers that included a felony tax charge that would have required prosecutors to prove he’d sold 10,000 untaxed cigarettes.

D’Amico acknowledged it was not the correct charge.

D’Amico said Garner had fewer than 100 cigarettes on him when police tried to arrest him.

The Force Report - NJ.com

Quote:
Five years. 72,677 documents. Every local police department in N.J. We built the most comprehensive statewide database of police use of force in the U.S.

The Force Report, a 16-month investigation by NJ Advance Media, found New Jersey's system for tracking police force is broken, with no statewide collection or analysis of data, little oversight by state officials and no standard practices among local departments. Two decades ago, officials envisioned a centralized database that would flag potentially dangerous cops for scrutiny. But that database was never created. So we built it.

Why the system is broken
New Jersey had the chance to catch problem officers. But it never looked.


Major findings

Tensions flare in Texas Capitol over new Sandra Bland video

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas authorities on Friday denied withholding a cellphone video of Sandra Bland's confrontational traffic stop, responding to a Democratic legislator's heated questions about why the 39-second clip never publicly surfaced until now.

Bland, a 28-year-old black woman from outside Chicago, had used her phone in 2015 to briefly film a white state trooper as he drew a stun gun and yelled "I will light you up!" while ordering her out of the car. She was dead three days later, hanging in her jail cell outside Houston. Her death was ruled a suicide.

Lying cops, indeed...

www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com


Apparently there are bad cops, and good cops in the Chicago PD. Good cops who sacrifice a career in law enforcement when they discover poor people being victimized.

Two former high-ranking Chattanooga police officers may have covered up years of rape allegations - Times Free Press

Quote:
Investigations into former Chattanooga police officer Desmond Logan found two now-retired, high-ranking officers may have played a role in covering up years of rape allegations against the fellow officer, according to sources with knowledge of the investigations.

The decorated officers — retired Assistant Chief Edwin McPherson and retired Capt. Pedro Bacon — and their potential roles in a cover-up are being looked into as part of ongoing investigations. Logan is under investigation by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office and the FBI. He was previously the subject of an internal affairs investigation by the Chattanooga Police Department.

This story was reported over 11 months by the Times Free Press. Sources who are not being identified have asked not to be disclosed due to their current roles with law enforcement agencies and other organizations with knowledge of the investigations. The newspaper has spoken with women who have accused Desmond Logan of wrongdoing, their families, their attorneys, law enforcement officials, investigators, as well as personnel with the police department, mayor’s office, city attorney’s office, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and former police officers who are identified in the story. Logan has not returned calls seeking comment.

Officials believe McPherson and Bacon were involved in the suppression of records and emailed about their attempts to cover up the accusations, sources told the Times Free Press. However, digital footprints and emails that may confirm the allegations have been withheld for months by the city attorney's office because they are part of the ongoing federal investigation and criminal investigation by the sheriff's office, city attorney Phil Noblett said.

"The city of Chattanooga, Chattanooga Police Department and Office of City Attorney are cooperating with the FBI and have turned over all information that relates to Officer Logan's investigation," Mayor Andy Berke said in a statement Wednesday. "While we cannot comment on specifics to this investigation, any attempt by law enforcement to cover up wrongdoing is unacceptable. The city expects its officers to conduct themselves with the utmost integrity."


:roll:

Famous last words.

Let's hope the allegations are untrue.

Ex-Brentwood cop raped by superior and police covered it up, lawsuit alleges - Merc

Quote:
BRENTWOOD — A former Brentwood police officer has filed a lawsuit alleging that her superior sexually assaulted her at an out-of-state conference and that the police department tried to pressure her to drop her complaint.

The woman, who this news organization is not naming, contends former Lt. Sal DiMercurio raped her inside a hotel room in Reno, Nevada, where they were both attending a training conference by the California Association of Hostage Negotiators. City officials say DiMercurio retired from the force on Feb. 9, two days after the lawsuit was filed.

“I hoped that he would be held accountable,” the woman said in an interview. “I was extremely disappointed with the city’s investigation.”

During his career, DiMercurio was a well-known officer around Brentwood who served as the department’s investigations lieutenant, frequently handling media inquiries.

“Mr. DiMercurio adamantly denies the allegations made in the civil complaint,” said Shane Larsen, an attorney with law firm Jackson Lewis, which is representing DiMercurio. “However, due to the ongoing litigation, he cannot provide further comment at this time.”

The suit accuses DiMercurio of having “a history of workplace sexual harassment and misconduct” and says two other high-ranking officers — Chief Tom Hansen and Captain Benjamin Tolero — opened a “supervisory inquiry” instead of an internal affairs investigation when the woman reported to higher-ups that she had been raped.

“This kind of a classic ‘me too’ situation, we once again see a woman get taken advantage of by a man in power,” the woman’s attorney, J. Gary Gwilliam, said in a recent interview. “She knew perfectly well if she took on Lt. DiMercurio she was taking on the whole police department and it would likely jeopardize her career. It turned out that’s exactly what happened.”


It's always what happens.

Former Newport police chief avoids prison for crash cover-up - Delaware online

Nice work if you can get it.

Quote:
Former Newport Police Chief Michael Capriglione will not serve any prison time after pleading guilty to charges including official misconduct.

Capriglione, who was chief in Newport for 38 years, was sentenced in New Castle County Superior Court Thursday to two years of probation for crashing into a parked police vehicle in the town hall parking lot, lying to city officials and officers about it and ordering the deletion of surveillance video of the crash.

He will be released from the second year of probation once he repays $8,600 in restitution to the city to change the locks. He is also barred from being a police officer ever again.

The crash occurred in May 2018 when Capriglione was leaving to teach a defensive driving course. The collision was captured on video, which prosecutors, police and the courts have declined to make public.

Yes people get really mad when the cops are criticized and contradicted, especially by African Americans, particularly by African-American women.

It makes them very nervous.

14 Officers Indicted on Assault or Cover-Up Charges in Beating of Black Men - NYT

Quote:
A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted 12 current and two former officers of the Springfield Police Department who are accused of beating a group of four black men after a barroom dispute or participating in a cover-up of the assault.

The announcement by the state attorney general’s office and the F.B.I. on Wednesday is the latest blow to the police force in Springfield, the state’s third-largest city.

Last fall, two other police officers in the city were indicted on charges of using unreasonable force while arresting two Hispanic boys. They have pleaded not guilty. Additionally, the Justice Department is investigating whether the Springfield narcotics unit routinely used excessive force and violated residents’ civil rights.

Wednesday’s indictments stem from an April 2015 confrontation that began inside Nathan Bills Bar & Restaurant, when one of the black men whistled at a bartender to get her attention. One off-duty officer thought the man was whistling at his girlfriend, an officer who was also off duty at the time, according to a federal civil rights lawsuit brought by the four black men

To clarify the misunderstanding, the lawsuit said, one of the men offered to buy the male officer a drink but was rebuffed.

The four African-American patrons said they were later attacked by a group of white men down the street from the bar. They were “beaten and kicked and sustained significant injuries as a result of the assault” by six off-duty officers and one of the bar’s co-owners, the attorney general’s office said.

Shawn Allyn, a lawyer for one of the six officers charged with assault, said Thursday that his client would be vindicated.


Yeah, probably.

Let's hope it's not true and didn't really happen.

Transit Police officer indicted for beating homeless man; two sergeants charged with coverup - Boston Globe

Quote:
A former MBTA Transit Police officer who allegedly beat a homeless man at the Ashmont Station in Dorchester last summer and two sergeants accused of helping him cover it up were indicted Wednesday by a Suffolk County grand jury, authorities said.

Dorston Bartlett, 65, of Lynn, was indicted for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, civil rights violations, and other offenses; Sergeants David Finnerty, 43, of Rutland, and Kenny Orcel, 55, of Chelmsford, were indicted for accessory after the fact to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and filing a false police report as a public official, according to a joint statement from the Suffolk district attorney’s office and the Transit Police.

District Attorney Rachael Rollins said the officers’ alleged actions were “. . . unacceptable at every level.”

“The charges reflect an unprovoked armed assault by a uniformed officer on a vulnerable member of our community, followed by a joint venture with supervising officers to cover up that crime,” she said.

“Actions like these undermine the hard work of countless honest, professional police officers and seriously erode trust in law enforcement. Crimes against public integrity are some of the most important that my office can bring on behalf of victims and our community, and I take them extremely seriously.


That's good.

And oldie but goodie...

Republic Steel Strike - Chicago Tribune

Quote:
Carrying American flags and singing union songs, the marchers-- men, women and a few youngsters--formed a long line as they crossed the grassy field.

Their destination was the main gate at Republic Steel's South Chicago plant on the city's Southeast Side, but facing them were about 150 Chicago police. It was a hot and sticky Memorial Day that soon would get even hotter.Beyond the police was the massive steel plant, the only one in the Chicago area that had stayed open during a bitter nationwide showdown between a number of steel companies and the Steel Workers Organizing Committee, which was trying to unionize the plants.

A combative mood was in the air. The nascent steelworkers union was determined to win a contract. The owners were equally determined not to surrender to the union. Swinging riot clubs, the police had turned back another group of demonstrators two days earlier. Eighteen marchers had been injured.

This time, as about 200 of the marchers approached the police, angry words were exchanged. Rocks and bricks thrown by the strikers brought a flurry of tear gas from the police. Gunfire broke out, and the marchers scattered as the police charged into their line. By the time things calmed, 10 marchers lay dead. Forty police officers were injured. At least 60 marchers were hurt or wounded, some shot from behind. Police said they were fired upon by the strikers, but hospital reports showed no gun wounds among the police.

In the aftermath, charges and counter-charges flew. Police said the march had been well-orchestrated. The demonstrators said they had acted spontaneously, stirred by anger over the number of people hurt by police during the prior confrontation. City and police officials denied charges of police brutality and blamed the whole incident on communists and radicals.


:problem:

Quote:
A Paramount photographer captured some of the mayhem, but the company refused to release the newsreel, saying it might incite audiences to riot. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch published an account of someone who had seen the suppressed film, describing the police firing on the marchers without warning and beating up the marchers in a "businesslike" way. A congressional investigation later condemned the police for using excessive force.

Yes people get really mad for all sorts of reasons. Like when the discussion drifts off of their tidy agenda. How dare anybody tell a story about lying-ass bad cops and heroic good cops where the races of the participants don't fit the approved agenda.

PS - the "white" cop from the Sandra Bland incident is actually a minority Latino cop. Which is apparently no different from a white cop depending on the agenda. Just like Antia Alvarez was the "white" woman States Attorney, not a minority Latina, who lost to Kim Foxx the actual minority "African-American" woman States Attorney.

When African Americans are killed by police, these lawyers get a phone call - CNN'

Quote:
(CNN)Civil rights attorney L. Chris Stewart was sitting in church in Atlanta on an April Sunday in 2015 when he received a Facebook message with a news article and a plea from a friend. A police officer had killed her cousin, Walter Scott, and she needed help.

Later that day, his phone rang in the middle of an engagement photo shoot with his fiancée. This time it was Walter Scott's brother.

"They're lying about my brother," Stewart recalled him saying. "If you can get here by tomorrow, you're hired."

Stewart, 40, is among a growing group of prominent civil rights attorneys in the country who have become the go-to for families of black men who have been killed by police. They are confidants and counselors, helping their clients navigate not just their cases, but the media and the public during one of the worst times of their lives.

Generations ago, civil rights attorneys fought against segregation, and to secure rights denied to African Americans, Stewart said.

"The current battle is staying alive to use those rights," he said.

Stewart did take the Walter Scott case, and would end up using a tactic that turned Scott's death into a national rallying cry against excessive force by police. Before Stewart, there was Benjamin Crump, who helped tell the world about Trayvon Martin, a teenager killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida, and S. Lee Merritt, who helped bring attention to the death of Jordan Edwards, a teenager shot and killed by a suburban Dallas police officer.

In a series of interviews, the attorneys spoke to CNN about their work, their motivations, and their goals.

The lawyers practice in an age where cell phone and body cameras have captured fatal encounters with police. Their tactics are strategic and media-savvy. Their goal is to hold abusive officers accountable and force systemic changes in policing in this country.

"When you hear us advocate, we're not advocating for a settlement, we're advocating for an indictment," Merritt said. "We're advocating for a conviction."


Well, I hope they all have 24/7 heightened security, and food testers.
