I did not stutter.



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.


:(
