Fort Myers Police Chief Doug Baker fired for lying
“Fort Myers, FL –
Fort Myers Police Chief Doug Baker has been fired after a member of his department accused him of lying in the investigation of NFL player Nate Allen.
City Manager William P. Mitchell made the announcement in a memo Friday morning writing, “Because it is my judgment as City Manager that a change in leadership is necessary to enable the City of Fort Myers Police Department to continue to move forward, I am terminating the employment contract of Douglas E. Baker as Police Chief effective immediately.”
It’s the culmination of months of investigation that started when NFL player Nate Allen was wrongfully arrested by Fort Myers Police officers.
Baker tells us he is disappointed that the city manager fired him, but he has the utmost respect for city leaders.
Investigation into phone records
A communications specialist was hired to investigate Baker’s phone records. They discovered Baker lied during an internal affairs investigation into Allen’s arrest back in February. The Cape Coral native was falsely accused of exposing himself to a teenage girl back in February.
Baker said he talked to Captain Duke Perry just before nine that night in February. But that never happened, according to the communications specialist. ”
So, what is surprising about this?
Absolutely nothing, that’s what
Every hour of the day cops lie to make the story fit their narrative and innocent people go to jail or prison
Do you think that anyone he testified against have been released from jail?
No, of course they haven’t
Liars , thugs, abusers and sociopaths
Any of the good ones have to get out of the profession when they see what it is really about
Remember this liar the next time you see a cop
Remember this liar, this hero who was good enough to be chief, if you are ever called to jury duty
Remember this liar if you are ever pulled over on a dark lonely road late at night
Two men shoot Florida wildlife officer and run him over with his own boat
“Authorities in the Florida Panhandle arrested two men for a brutal attack on a state wildlife officer last Friday. The men were charged with shooting the officer and then running him over with his own patrol boat, county officials reported.
On Friday, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office said that Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer David Brady approached the pair after calls about a disturbance. The confrontation quickly turned to violence when the officer asked for identification and one man allegedly went into the cabin of a sailboat and returned with his gun.
Officer Brady reported that he jumped into the water and began to return fire, hitting 18-year-old Samuel Wyndham Reager in the hand. Reager and cohort Lachlan Fain Akins, 20, then jumped into officer Brady’s boat and tried several times to run him over.
The accused pair boated off and ditched the officer’s craft in nearby Panama City, Florida. There the two allegedly broke into a man’s home where they were discovered by police.
Reager and Akins were quickly arrested and were found with officer Brady’s handgun.
Brady was hit in the side with one bullet, but the slug was stopped by his bulletproof vest. He also suffered a wound to his shoulder. He was treated and released from the hospital that same evening.”
Sounds like that is going to leave a mark!
On-duty Florida Cop of the Month fired for allegedly raping woman on patrol car hood, threatening her with arrest, death.
“A Florida Cop of the Month allegedly raped a woman on the hood of his patrol car while he was on duty, police said.
Boynton Beach police arrested their own Stephen Maiorino Thursday for the alleged incident.
The eight-year force veteran — who earned an “Officer of the Month” award in 2010 and appeared on two national TV shows for his all-star cop accomplishments — will be fired, Police Chief Jeffrey S. Katz said in a statement.
Police said the 35-year-old cop picked up a woman earlier this month, raped her while holding a gun and threatened to arrest and kill her.
The nightmare started around 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 15.
A 20-year-old woman was a passenger in a car, but the driver was arrested for DUI, leaving her stranded, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Maiorino, who was on duty, responded to the scene and said he’d take her to police headquarters so her family could pick her up.”

Just a few bad apples right?
It couldn’t be that sociopaths and psychopaths happen to have the personality type that want to control people and order them around
Don’t forget that this guy is a sworn officer of the court and the day before this his testimony would be taken over that of a citizen
I am surprised that they didn’t take his word over hers when it came to the rape

Tampa cop body slams mother over tinted license plate cover, P.D. lies and covers up video
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – It started over a tinted license plate cover. Now Tampa police officer Kevin Fitzpatrick is under investigation and the 34-year-old woman he body slammed wants justice. Not only does the Tampa Police Department have to explain what happened on this dash-cam video, both police and prosecutors need to fess up about why they claimed this video didn’t exist.
It was Nov. 5, 7:30 in the morning. Tampa police officer Kevin Fitzpatrick claims when he approached Liz Vargas about an obscured license plate, she immediately became argumentative.
Dash-cam video captured in his cruiser shows within 34 seconds of approaching Vargas, Fitzpatrick is struggling to put handcuffs on her. Vargas is screaming for help, crying out she is being abused. Then, Fitzpatrick body slams her.
“You know I wasn’t offensive, I wasn’t hurting him, I wasn’t you know, hit him. I’m not a person like that,” Liz Vargas said. According to officer Fitzpatrick’s report, Vargas repeatedly ignored his requests for her license and registration.
“It was in my glove compartment, I was telling him, but he was actually screaming at me he didn’t give me a chance,” she said. Fitzpatrick took Vargas into custody for obtructing a police officer and resisting arrest without violence
“She was never told, you’re being placed under arrest for X, Y, or Z, he just grabbed her arm, yanked it behind her, slammed her to the ground,” Vargas’ attorney Brett stated. The 34 year old mother of four suffered multiple facial, shoulder and back injuries.
The next day she asked Tampa police to investigate officer Fitzpatrick. Szematowicz asked for video of the incident. Court records show the state and TPD said there was none. But a private investigator confirmed the tape existed.
“They lied about it,” Vargas said. The state attorney’s office told 8 On Your Side that it became aware in April, that the video existed.

What a bunch of scumbags. Remember that these are sworn officers of the court and any time they give testimony it is considered truthful.
They will take the word of these thugs and bullies over that of citizen sworn to tell the truth.
Who is more likely to be a criminal?
The accused or the cop giving testimony?
In 2000 46% of cops surveyed said that they had seen police misconduct and covered it up.
The most covered up crime?
Unwarranted violence against a person
These are real heroes we are talking about here
Think about this guy if you ever see a cop in need of assistance
Baltimore cop calls wounded suspect “Piece of shit” and shoots him in the groin
“A Baltimore police officer has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of an unarmed burglary suspect last December, State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby and interim Police Commissioner Kevin Davis announced Wednesday.
The officer, 13-year veteran Wesley Cagle, is accused of shooting Michael Johansen, 46, in the 3000 block of E. Monument St. after he had been shot by two other officers. Cagle was charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault and second-degree assault.
Mosby said the first two officers were justified in shooting Johansen because he refused to heed commands and made a move toward his waistband.
But Cagle “on his own initiative” came out of an alley, Mosby said, stood over Johansen, called him a “piece of [expletive]” and shot him in the groin.”
“He fell to the floor, his body partially inside of the store and his feet on the steps outside.
While Leary and Smith were covering him with their guns drawn, Mosby said, Cagle walked in and stood over him with his gun drawn. The man said to Cagle, “What did you shoot me with, a beanbag?”
According to Mosby, Cagle replied: “No, a .40-caliber, you piece of [expletive],” and fired one shot.
At the time of the incident, the Police Department said the officers fired because they believed they saw Johansen holding a “shiny object,” and that he was shot at least once in the upper torso. Police did not mention the gunshot wound to his groin area.”
And Baltimore wonders why they have riots
Let’s go back to the initial shooting
“Mosby said the first two officers were justified in shooting Johansen because he refused to heed commands and made a move toward his waistband.”
Of course he did
After all he was unarmed
Grabbing at your waistband when you don’t have a gun is a natural thing to do
I’ll believe those two when I see unedited video of it
These cops are eventually going to get what they deserve
Every single day there are more and more accounts and videos of crooked cops and citizens being gunned down
There is a veritable tidal wave of anti police sentiment building nation wide
Sooner or later it is going to come crashing down
And when it does, there is going to be hell to pay
Police searching for shooter in Thonotosassa Fl.
“THONOTOSASSA — A Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office deputy was shot in the leg early Thursday in a neighborhood where residents say gunshots are becoming increasingly frequent.
The shooting happened in a neighborhood of duplexes at about 12:30 a.m. and prompted a large manhunt. Police were still searching for the gunman late Thursday.
Deputy Scott Ranney, 42, and two other deputies responded to the area after a report of gunshots. The sheriff’s office said that as the deputies began searching on foot, they saw a man in front of the duplexes.
“As they began approaching that subject, the subject turned on them and fired upon all three deputies,” sheriff’s Col. Donna Lusczynski told reporters.
One of the bullets struck Ranney in the leg. The deputies returned fire, but it was not known if the gunman was hit.
The gunman fled, running between homes.”

You are going to see more and more of this as the police state attempts to clamp down
People have had enough of the thuggery and abuse
Enough of people being gunned down and beaten in the streets
Enough of the lying on reports and in court
The heroes in blue are going to respond with an even higher level of violence
But all that is going to do is escalate the situation
Buckle up everybody
We are going to be going for a ride
Police chief pleads guilty after embezzling car with vanity plates that read “Ncustody”
Facing a hung jury, King City police chief pleads no contest.
Posted: Wednesday, July 29, 2015 6:30 pm
After a three-week trial and two days of deliberations, a jury was unable to reach a decision in the case of Nick Baldiviez, the retired King City police chief who was arrested in a February 2014 sweep.
Faced with the prospect of a whole new trial, Baldiviez reached a plea deal with prosecutors. Wednesday afternoon, he pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor counts, one for embezzlement of a police car and one of obstruction of justice for lying to investigators.
Baldiviez was on trial for charges of felony embezzlement and felony perjury.
He will be back in court Sept. 16 for sentencing, and faces up to two years in jail.
Baldiviez became the sixth of seven people arrested in King City on Feb. 25, 2014 to agree to a plea deal. Officer Bobby Carrillo is still on target to go to trial, with a court appearance scheduled for Aug. 11.
At issue in Baldiviez’s case was whether he signed DMV paperwork transferring a King City police car from the city to Police Officer Mario Mottu, Sr.
Investigators found the souped-up police car with Lamborghini doors and a custom paint job (that had Mottu’s name painted in elaborate script) in Mottu’s garage.
He’s invested some $6,000 of his own money on the paint job, rims and vanity plates that read “NCUSTODY.”
Mottu pleaded no contest to two counts of embezzlement, one felony and one misdemeanor, for accepting the police car. ”

This is the moral character of the “Heroes in blue”
Remember this guy the next time a cop is trying to get moral with you
Remember this guy when you go to tell your kid who the cops are
Remember this guy if you are ever on a jury and hear a cop’s testimony
These people are liars, abusers and thugs
Remember this guy if you ever see a cop giving someone a hard time
Make sure that any encounter you have with them you are aware of who they are and that you are in danger
Film them at all times or they will lie
But most of all remember this:
As long as they go safely home at night
Everything is all right
Cop gets pistol whipped, bystanders take photos
“It all started when the detective, driving an unmarked car, pulled over Janard Shamar Cunningham for a traffic violation. Cunningham was told to stay in his car while the detective waited on a marked patrol car to come to the scene. However, Cunningham ignored this order, exited his vehicle and attacked the officer. At some point during the altercation, Cunningham gained control of the officer’s handgun. He then used it to repeatedly strike the officer in the head until he was unconscious.
Cunningham fled the scene, but police tracked down his vehicle and setup a perimeter around an entire neighborhood while the US Marshals used tracking dogs to find Cunningham. He was arrested without incident.”
The rest here:
My last post was about cops not doing anything when another cop was misbehaving
This time the shoe is on the other foot
Citizens not doing anything while a cop is pistol whipped
I wonder why they didn’t help him?
After all he is a hero, Right?
I am sure that he never stomped on anyone’s rights
But I guess the onlookers didn’t see it that way
I guess they figured that he was an abusive scumbag that deserved whatever was dished out to him
I wonder what would make them think that?
