Dallas’ interim police chief fires 4 employees, including officer charged in fatal shooting

Wow! What a bunch of degenerates these guys are. Child abuse, failure to render aid, aggravated assault and lying.  But where the problem lies is that they are just now getting fired. These are long time “Heroes” who have been on the force for decades.     Only now under media scrutiny for blowing the Holy Hell out of an unarmed woman are they getting cut.     And to top it off this is from a Dept. who has not charged an officer related shooting in 43 years. Let me emphasize that: FORTY THREE YEARS!       Do you think that it is because all of the officers exercised due diligence when discharging their firearm for Four decades?      Sounds a little preposterous doesn’t it? My guess would be a whole lot of cops investigating cops and finding no wrong doing.       And this type of thing is not relegated only to Dallas. Blue privilege is present in every single incident that takes place nationwide. It is us against them and the guy you trust, the one in blue,  is automatically assumed to be innocent. With the 43 year history of no charges in Dallas though, it has to go deeper than a presumption of innocence.

“Dallas’ interim police Chief David Pughes on Wednesday terminated four employees, including an officer charged in a deadly shooting and a 911 call taker.

Officer Christopher Hess is among those who were fired at the hearing. Hess reportedly violated the department’s felony traffic stop policy, use of deadly force policy and placed a person in greater danger than necessary, police said.

Hess was charged last month in the January fatal shooting of 21-year-old Genevive Dawes. Officials said Hess and a second officer responded to a call in Old East Dallas that involved a reportedly stolen vehicle.”

“When officers showed up, Dawes backed up into their squad car with the vehicle and drove forward into a fence. When she reversed again, officers fired into the vehicle, police said.

A federal wrongful-death lawsuit filed against the city claims that Dawes bought the car a month before the shooting and refutes accounts that she rammed the patrol car.

The suit also says Hess and the other officer fired at least 13 shots into the passenger window, striking Dawes in the neck, right triceps, left arm, chest, right forearm and right earlobe.

Hess has been charged with aggravated assault. The other officer was placed on restricted duty.

Hess was hired in August 2006 and was assigned to the central patrol division.”

“Also terminated Wednesday was Sr. Cpl. Keith Huber, who was involved in a disturbance on May 11, 2016, in which Midlothian police were called.

In December, Huber was arrested on a charge from September of injury to a child with intent to cause bodily injury.  He is accused of beating the child who was younger than 14 with a surge protector, WFAA-TV (Channel 8) reported. 

An investigation also showed Huber violated the administrative leave policy from Dec. 22 to Dec. 28, police said.

Huber, a 16-year veteran of the department, was assigned to the central patrol division.

Pughes also terminated Officer Holly Carter, a three-year veteran of the department who was involved in an auto accident in September in Lancaster and failed to stop and render aid. Instead, she reportedly went to a nearby gas station to check on her vehicle, WFAA reported.

The investigation also found that in December, Carter provided inconsistent or misleading information in an internal statement.

Carter had been assigned to the southeast patrol division. ”

“Tony Marzett, a 911 call taker, was also terminated Wednesday. He was indicted by a Dallas County grand jury in April on a charge of aggravated assault causing severe bodily injury for a incident on New Year’s Eve at an Irving Walgreens.

Marzett reportedly started yelling at a woman for taking too long to get out of her vehicle. He then pushed the woman to the ground and punched her in the face when she stood back up, according to court documents. The woman fell backwards, breaking her arm in two places.

Marzett, who was hired in March 2008, admitted in an interview to hitting the woman in the face.”

First time in 43 years: Dallas Police officer been indicted for an officer-involved shooting that resulted in death

IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN SO JUDICIOUS RIGHT? 43 YEARS ? WELL, TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’.   WELCOME TO THE VIDEO AGE

 

A grand jury has recommended an aggravated assault charge against a Dallas police officer who shot and killed a woman in a January confrontation involving a stolen car.

The Dallas County district attorney announced Friday that Christopher Hess was indicted on a charge of aggravated assault. The charge is related to the January shooting death of 21-year-old Genevive Dawes and is the first time in 43 years that a Dallas Police officer has been indicted for an officer-involved shooting that resulted in death.

Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said at a press conference Friday that her office was committed to taking the case to trial and to investigating officer-involved shootings. She said her investigators did not believe there was sufficient evidence to bring a second charge against the officer because of the second passenger in the car.

Daryl Washington, a civil rights attorney representing Dawes’ family, said they were hoping for a murder charge to be brought against the officer. Washington also said the family was hoping a second charge would be brought because of the passenger, Virgilio Rosales, Dawes’ boyfriend, who was also shot at during the incident.

Washington also said Dawes was five months pregnant when she died after being struck by at least four bullets. But Johnson said Friday that Dawes was not pregnant, according to the district attorney’s office investigation.

Hess and another officer, who the grand jury did not recommend charges against, had responded to a suspicious persons call, according to police accounts. Dawes and Rosales allegedly ignored commands to get out of the car, reversed the car into a police cruiser, rammed a wooden fence and were reversing away from the fence when police fired, killing Dawes and injuring Rosales.

Washington said that account is flawed. He said the couple was sleeping about 5 a.m. in the car when police arrived. He said from the evidence he has seen, Dawes never drove the car toward the officers or tried to hit them. He also said Dawes did not know the car was stolen.

Washington said the officers fired 14 times into the car, and that he believed Hess had fired 13 of the shots.

“There were a total of 14 shots at a vehicle that was going five miles per hour,” Washington said. “I can 100 percent stand behind the fact that no officers were in danger. No officer at the time that those shots were fired, were behind that vehicle. And I feel comfortable saying that the statements given by the Dallas police officers were inaccurate.”

Johnson said she had seen the body camera footage from the incident, but could not comment on the content or what role it played in the charge.”

Welcome to Florida: Jacksonville cop caught beating handcuffed teen, seventh JSO cop arrested this year

“JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – For the second time in less than a month, an officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office was arrested Saturday, JSO Undersheriff Pat Ivey announced.

Ivey said the agency arrested Officer Timothy James, 38, who has had more than three years of experience with JSO. He is facing one count battery charges following an incident that started at a gas station around the 1900 block of Atlantic Boulevard around 4 a.m.

A patrol sergeant was flagged down by an off-duty JSO recruit who said he had information about two individuals who were wanted in another jurisdiction. During this discussion, a truck pulled up and the JSO recruit said the individuals were in the truck.

The sergeant called for back-up who ended up being Officer James. The officers made contact with the suspects, ran their backgrounds, then detained them after they got a “hit,” Ivey said.

Both the suspects, a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old were handcuffed and placed in Officer James’ patrol vehicle. The 18-year-old was identified as Abel Campos from Orlando, according to JSO. First Coast News has chosen not to identify the 17-year-old because he is a minor.

As the sergeant was walking away to his patrol vehicle, he noticed James walking away from the backseat where the suspects were placed. One of the suspects then told the sergeant James had hit him, Ivey said. The sergeant inspected the teen and James, but didn’t see any injuries or evidence that the teen had been hit.

The sergeant went back to his vehicle and was proceeding to verify the warrant on the two suspects. When he looked over, Ivey said the sergeant saw James remove the 17-year-old, threw him on the ground and a struggle ensued. Ivey said Campos then got out of the car and hopped on top of James, who then threw the teen to the ground as well. Both the suspects were still in handcuffs, Ivey said.

When the sergeant detained the Campos, he said James “was beating on my brother,” Ivey said.

A second cage unit – or the vehicles where police officers transport suspects – was requested. The sergeant told James to put the 17-year-old back in his patrol vehicle while he held Campos.

Ivey said James not only put the 17-year-old in the backseat, but he also got in the car with him and struck him several times in the face with a closed fist. The sergeant repeatedly asks James to stop. The incident was witnessed by the off-duty JSO recruit.

After the second cage unit arrived, Campos was placed in the vehicle. The sergeant immediately called and reported the incident. JSO conducted an investigation and James was arrested before 1 p.m. He was charged with one count of battery”

Five Inglewood cops who killed unconscious couple fired

Surely when the truth comes out we will find out that they all feared for their life and they will be vindicated.  Maybe, knowing that they were sleeping in a bad neighborhood, the couple had painted eyeballs on their eyelids with marker. How else can you explain the volley of bullets unleashed by these fearless heroes in blue?     But on a serious note ; How is it that in a war zone in a foreign country, our soldiers have a much higher standard to shoot someone than does a LEO in our own country? In Afghanistan, simply “Fearing for your life” does not qualify  a U.S soldier to murder someone. That person, that potential foreign “Enemy combatant” in a war zone must actually have a weapon in his hands at the time of the shooting.     This is a real and present problem and it endangers every citizen who has an encounter with a “Hero” in blue. Make no mistake that every single encounter with Law enforcement could end fatally whether or not you co-operate with them.  Think I am exaggerating? Then read on. I have compiled here on these pages a body of work that firmly refutes the oft quoted “A few bad apples”. Do you Think that you are safe when you see cherries behind you on a desolate highway? Again, I challenge you to read what is on the pages compiled here.      Stay safe America and don’t get pulled over….. Or fall asleep.

“The five Inglewood police officers who fatally shot a young couple, firing 20 bullets into them as they appeared to be unconscious in a parked car, are no longer police officers in the city, Mayor James T. Butts said Tuesday.

The announcement marked the end of an internal probe of the Feb. 21, 2016, slayings of Marquintan Sandlin and Kisha Michael, but it offered scant information about the incident, which has stoked protest and calls for greater transparency in the Inglewood Police Department.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office is continuing to investigate the shooting.

“The officers involved in the incident are no longer members of the Inglewood Police Department,” Butts said in his statement. “The department’s report and any discipline that results from the report are confidential.”

Butts said the internal investigation into the fatal shooting of Sandlin, 32, and Michael, 31, was completed on Friday. His statement did not specify the number of officers or whether they were fired or had resigned.

The mayor’s spokeswoman, Jasmyne Cannick, later said that the five officers were “separated from service” after firing their weapons during the encounter with Sandlin and Michael.

All five held the rank of police officer, and four had been with the Inglewood Police Department for two years or less. One had been with the department for five years, Cannick said.

Cannick said the mayor was unable to comment further.

Although Butts did not name the officers, they were previously identified by the city, which initially refused, after a public records request. The five officers involved in the shooting were identified as Michael Jaen, Richard Parcella, Jason Cantrell, Sean Reidy and Andrew Cohen.”

Lying cop fakes body cam footage; Prosecutors drop charges

Believe me when I say this; You are never safe when you have an encounter with LEO. They will lie, cheat, steal and make fake body cam videos to prosecute you. It is not the gun nor the badge that makes them dangerous. It is the man. It is the type of person who chooses to control others as a career.    According to a study by the women’s advocate group, the Purple Berets, cops are 4 times more likely to commit domestic violence and six times less likely to be prosecuted than the average citizen. So remember this the next time you get pulled over. You are in danger; Don’t be fooled by the uniform. Not all abusers wear wife beaters.

“Prosecutors in Pueblo, Colorado are dropping felony drug and weapon-possession charges after an officer involved in the case said he staged body cam footage so he could walk “the courts through” the vehicle search that led to the arrest.

The development means that defendant Joseph Cajar, 36, won’t be prosecuted on allegations of heroin possession and of unlawful possession of a handgun. The evidence of the contraband was allegedly found during a search of Cajar’s vehicle, which was towed after he couldn’t provide an officer registration or insurance during a traffic stop. Officer Seth Jensen said he found about seven grams of heroin and a .357 Magnum in the vehicle at the tow yard. But the actual footage of the search that he produced in court was a reenactment of the search, the officer told prosecutors.

Cajar’s attorney said the development, which comes as more and more police agencies are deploying body cams, is a disturbing use of technology.

“Everyone who looked at the video believed it was in-time documentation of what actually happened,” lawyer Joe Koncilja told Ars. The video, he said, shows the officer is “surprised by the fact that he found the gun. It’s tampering with evidence.” The video was shown in court during a March preliminary hearing where a judge found sufficient evidence to prosecute Cajar.

The Pueblo Police Department has opened an internal investigation into the body cam incident.

The alleged police misconduct surfaced after the local prosecutor texted Jensen to make sure his report matched the body cam footage.

According to the Pueblo Chieftan:

Jensen replied back, saying, “For the search, the body cam shows different than the report because it was. Prior to turning my body cam on I conducted the search. Once I found the (expletive referring to evidence), I stepped back, called (a fellow officer), then activated my body cam and walked the courts through it.”

Heroes of the week – 5/3/17 cops arrested for rape, child porn, violence etc.

 We are back for another edition of our heroes in blue and their malfeasance on the public dime. These supposed public servants could really give the criminals they are supposed to be after some really good lessons in general dirt baggery.    The only difference between these uniformed criminals and the ones who wear wife beaters is that you don’t have to worry about one of them pulling you over on a dark highway.
