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.”

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?

A few bad apples? 46% of cops admit to witnessing misconduct by other cops

Here are some facts about the heroes and their code of silence.

“The sampling of current officers was comprised of 2,698 fulltime officers from twenty-one different states. A total 1,116 of the 2,657 officers asked to complete a confidential questionnaire, did so. This equates to a response rate of 42 percent. An additional forty-one officers provided confidential interviews. The following facts were revealed.

  • In response to “Please describe the first time you witnessed misconduct by another employee but took no action,” 46 percent (532) advised they had witnessed misconduct by another employee, but concealed what they knew.
  • In response to the question “At the time of the incident occurred, what did you think would happen if you revealed what had taken place?” the five reasons listed most often were: I would be ostracized (177 times); the officer who committed the misconduct would be disciplined or fired (88 times); I would be fired from my job (73 times); I would be “blackballed” (59 times); the administration would not do anything even if I reported it. (54 times)
  • 73 percent of the individuals pressuring officers to keep quiet about the misconduct were leaders.
  • Eight percent (40) of the 509 officers who admitted to intentionally withholding the information about officer misconduct were upper administrators. The upper administrators of the average American police department comprises only five percent of the agency.
  • The average age of an officer who covered up an incident for the first time was 31.4 years of age.
  • The average years of experience when they first took part in the Code of Silence was 8.2 years.
  • 449 of the 532 officers were male, while 74 were female.
  • Of the 532 who confessed they had participated in the Code of Silence, 252 were pressured to keep quiet by the officer(s) who committed the misconduct and 118 felt pressure from uninvolved officers. The remaining 162 officers advised they covered up the incident even though they were not pressured.
  • Excessive use of force was the most frequent situation over which the Code of Silence occurs, with 217 were excessive use of force circumstances.
  • The five most frequently offered solutions for controlling the Code of Silence from the 532 officers who confessed to taking part in it were: Conduct good ethics training (listed 46 times); More consistent accountability (listed 20 times); Ensure open communication between officers and leaders (listed 16 times); Provide an anonymous reporting system (listed 14 times) and Protect whistleblowers (listed 10 times).”

Here is the study in it’s entirety: http://www.aele.org/loscode2000.html

Think about this: How high is the actual percentage of abuse if 46% of cops have witnessed it and covered it up?

Now that the video age has arrived, these scumbags can lie all they want, but when the video is released the truth will come out.

This study is from 2000 and I am sure that as the cops have militarized and geared up the percentage is much higher

Remember the next time you interact with a cop that he will lie to make that interaction fit his narrative if he needs to

Remember if you sit on a jury that the “Sworn officer of the court” is most likely more apt to lie than the citizen he is accusing

A few bad apples?

I don’t think that you can look at the statistics above and actually believe that
