4 Houston cops shot , Update: cops lied on warrant that ended in shooting

Lying bunch of dipshits got their asses shot up because the house they hit never sold them heroin as stated in the warrant.    Mister wannabe hero that lied on the affidavit was one of those wounded in the shooting and I hope he caught a good one.      You should be aware  that anytime you deal with the “Heroes in Blue” that they usually have something to gain by lying . Whether it is monetary, power related or simply to cover their misdeeds, more often than not, they will lie.     Why? Because they are automatically assumed to be telling the truth. A Judge will give the testimony of ” A sworn officer of the court” the weight of truth with no examination.       So why not lie? Why not get promotions, awards and raises when all you have to do is bend the truth?       But it is not just the cops; It is the lawyers, judges, DA’s and everyone else involved.   They all profit from it and build careers, political lives and personal wealth.      If you sit in a court you should really remember this : Before you condemn a fellow citizen, the cop, the prosecutor, the lawyer are just as likely to be committing a crime as they are.     The only reason that this info on Houston came out was the fact that someone leaked the COURT SEALED DOCUMENTS.   Who is the scumbag here? The drug dealers or the cops? Maybe someone should contact Mr. Garabaldi to find out.

       Houston — Houston’s police chief says a lead investigator lied in an affidavit justifying a drug raid on a home which ended with two residents killed and four officers wounded in a gun battle. The officer is expected to face charges.

Chief Art Acevedo said during a news conference Friday that the investigator falsely claimed in the affidavit, which was leaked to the media, that a confidential informant obtained heroin from the home. Police records indicate the heroin was actually obtained elsewhere.

Two residents of the home, 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle and 58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas, were killed.

The investigator was one of the officers shot in the gunfight Jan. 28. He remained hospitalized Friday. Officials said he has been with the department for more than 30 years.

In the hours after the deadly raid, Acevedo praised the investigator as being “tough as nails,” but he said Friday that there’s a “high probability that there will be a criminal charge” brought against him.

After the raid, police said they found several firearms at the home, along with marijuana and cocaine but no heroin. Acevedo insisted Friday that investigators did have reason to investigate the home and were not there “willy nilly.” Authorities still believe Tuttle and Nicholas were involved in criminal activity, but Acevedo said the case now is undermined.

He said lying in a sworn affidavit is “totally unacceptable.”

“From day one, when I joined this department, I told my people that if you lie, you die,” Acevedo said.

The leaked affidavit — which had been sealed under a court order — revealed that when police started looking into the investigator’s account, it started to unravel. Still hospitalized with a gunshot wound, the investigator wrote down the name of the confidential informant for another officer investigating questions around the drug raid.

When Houston police contacted the informant, he said he had worked with the investigator on narcotics cases in the past, but not the one that led to the deadly shootout. The informant also said the investigator had paid him in the past even when he didn’t do any work.

I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me.

What the fuck? This is America? Did the British win and I didn’t I didn’t hear about it?    You can’t tell me that a free people in a free nation are accepting this…. Bullshit….

This police state has to be stopped. We are now occupied by a military force payed for by our own tax dollars. We finance our own fate

We are Palestine

And we need to start acting like it

 

“It’s not the police, but the people they stop, who can prevent a detention from turning into a tragedy.”

“Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me.”

“A teenager is fatally shot by a police officer; the police are accused of being bloodthirsty, trigger-happy murderers; riots erupt. This, we are led to believe, is the way of things in America.

It is also a terrible calumny; cops are not murderers. No officer goes out in the field wishing to shoot anyone, armed or unarmed. And while they’re unlikely to defend it quite as loudly during a time of national angst like this one, people who work in law enforcement know they are legally vested with the authority to detain suspects — an authority that must sometimes be enforced. Regardless of what happened with Mike Brown, in the overwhelming majority of cases it is not the cops, but the people they stop, who can prevent detentions from turning into tragedies.

Working the street, I can’t even count how many times I withstood curses, screaming tantrums, aggressive and menacing encroachments on my safety zone, and outright challenges to my authority. In the vast majority of such encounters, I was able to peacefully resolve the situation without using force. Cops deploy their training and their intuition creatively, and I wielded every trick in my arsenal, including verbal judo, humor, warnings and ostentatious displays of the lethal (and nonlethal) hardware resting in my duty belt. One time, for instance, my partner and I faced a belligerent man who had doused his car with gallons of gas and was about to create a firebomb at a busy mall filled with holiday shoppers. The potential for serious harm to the bystanders would have justified deadly force. Instead, I distracted him with a hook about his family and loved ones, and he disengaged without hurting anyone. Every day cops show similar restraint and resolve incidents that could easily end up in serious injuries or worse.

Sometimes, though, no amount of persuasion or warnings work on a belligerent person; that’s when cops have to use force, and the results can be tragic. We are still learning what transpired between Officer Darren Wilson and Brown, but in most cases it’s less ambiguous — and officers are rarely at fault. When they use force, they are defending their, or the public’s, safety.

Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?”

A few bad apples: Nationwide study shows that police crime is rampant

“So far this month, two New York City police commanders have been arrested on corruption allegations, an officer in Killeen, Tex., has been accused of sexually assaulting a female driver, a Philadelphia police officer has been charged with extortion of a drug dealer, and an officer in Hono­lulu has been accused of raping a 14-year-old girl.

Such sporadic news accounts of police officers being arrested led one group of researchers to a question: How much crime do police officers commit?  No one was keeping track, much as no one was tracking how often police officers shoot and kill civilians, although both may involve use of police power and abuse of public trust.

Now there is an answer: Police officers are arrested about 1,100 times a year, or roughly three officers charged every day, according to a new national study. The most common crimes were simple assault, drunken driving and aggravated assault, and significant numbers of sex crimes were also found. About 72 percent of officers charged in cases with known outcomes are convicted, more than 40 percent of the crimes are committed on duty, and nearly 95 percent of the officers charged are men.

The study is thought to be the first-ever nationwide look at police crime, and was conducted by researchers at Bowling Green State University through a grant from the Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice. The research covered seven years, 2005 to 2011, and sought to quantify not only the prevalence of police officers arrested across the country, but also how law enforcement agencies discipline officers who are arrested and how officer arrests might correlate with other forms of misconduct.”

For example, the study found that 22 percent of the officers arrested had been named as defendants in a federal civil rights lawsuit at some point in their careers, unrelated to their arrest case. The authors suggest that police agencies analyzing such suits “could potentially lead to new and improved mechanisms to identify and mitigate various forms of police misconduct.”

In the seven years of the study, the researchers compiled 6,724 cases, or about 960 cases per year, involving about 792 officers per year — 674 officers were arrested more than once. But the study has continued beyond 2011, and lead researcher Philip M. Stinson at Bowling Green said the number of cases now averages about 1,100 arrests per year.

“Police crimes are not uncommon,” Stinson concluded. “Our data directly contradicts some of the prevailing assumptions and the proposition that only a small group of rotten apples perpetrate the vast majority of police crime.” Although nearly 60 percent of the crimes “occurred when the officer was technically off-duty,” Stinson wrote, “a significant portion of these so-called off-duty crimes also lies within the context of police work and the perpetrator’s role as a police officer, including instances where off-duty officers flash a badge, an official weapon, or otherwise use their power, authority, and the respect afforded to them as a means to commit crime.”

“This is probably the tip of the iceberg,” said Cara Rabe-Hemp, a professor at Illinois State University who has studied police deviance. She said the effort is the “first-ever study to quantify police crime” and shows it is “much much more common than what police scholars and police administrators previously thought.”

Hero in blue, Officer of the week : U.S. Forest Service officer arrested for sexual assault, false imprisonment

Seriously, whoever would have suspected a guy who’s career is to control people of this? Does someone just get out of bed one day and say ” I want my life to be spent ordering others around?    I think not. It goes more to the core of what, not whom, that person is. This is a person who’s authority is backed up by handcuffs, a gun and 400 other cops on a moments notice.  The man is A thug hired by the state to enforce it’s laws and make a profit doing so.    What could possibly go wrong?

Ask yourself just that the next time you get pulled over.

“The Tulare County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a U.S. Forest Service officer on multiple charges including sexual assault and false imprisonment.

Deputies arrested Richard Telles, 37 at his home in Springville on Wednesday.

Investigators say the Porterville Substation called to check on the welfare of a woman who was possibly involved in a domestic dispute. When deputies arrived at the Springville home, the woman told them she got into a physical fight with Telles. She also reported being sexually assaulted and held against her will.

Deputies arrested Telles on scene without incident and transferred him back to the Porterville Substation.

Telles faces charges of attempted rape, abuse, false imprisonment and penetration with a foreign object.”

More lying, crooked cops : Former Deputy chief lies to FBI about convicted Sheriff

Yep, you just can’t make this stuff up

This is what happens when you automatically assign truth to a person because they wear a uniform

This is what happens when “Sworn officers of the court” make reports and give testimony

They lie because lying is made easy for them

They cheat because cheating is made easy for them.

A few bad apples?

Not by a long sight

Maybe there are a few good ones left

Maybe….

Former Lake County, Ind., deputy police chief sentenced for lying to FBI

“A federal judge told a former Lake County deputy police chief that when he lied to the FBI, his turned his legacy into that of “a crook.”

Dan Murchek, 57, of Schererville, was sentenced to two years of probation by federal Judge James Moody on Wednesday in Hammond. The former top-ranking police officer was sentenced for lying to the FBI.

Murchek was indicted in April for allegedly making false statements to the FBI, according to court documents, and reportedly lied to investigators during an interview about towing operations under convicted former Sheriff John Buncich when the former deputy chief was asked about campaign contributions he received from a tow operator.

“You’ll be remembered as a crook,” Moody said.

“Yes, sir,” Murchek said.

Defense attorney Paul Stracci said Murchek always did what he could to serve his community throughout his more than 30-year career in law enforcement. Murchek was willing and ready to help anyone who needed it, Stracci said.

What got Murchek into trouble was that he doesn’t always think things through, Stracci said.

Had Murchek admitted to the FBI that he structured the campaign donation, Stracci said it would have been a Class B misdemeanor and he likely would have continued being a police officer.

“I think sometimes Danny doesn’t think,” Stracci said.

“Or maybe he’s just full of himself,” Moody said.

Stracci said Murchek knows his accomplishments and contributions to the community will be overshadowed by his criminal conduct.

“He will be punished forever for a lie, for an unexplainable lie,” Stracci said.

Heroes in blue : Compilation of lying cops for 09/06/2018

you-sir-are-a-liar

“The evidence secured was absolutely conclusive, but unfortunately juries are unwilling to take the uncorroborated word of a policeman against that of a defendant”

“A mere policeman (was) eager to convict the defendant and add another scalp to his belt”

True stories of crime, 1908 by Charles Train former NY District attorney

Video of now fired cop beating the hell out of a guy on the street

Now this is a classic case of  a guy who wants to be a cop because he is a “Tough guy”

Deep down inside this bully in blue has to prove to himself that he has mettle to stand up to street thugs

Just like Mark Furhman, the felon, racist LA cop from the O.J trial, who claims that every arrest he made was a “fair fight” when the citizen resisted

He was more proud of his physical prowess fighting “Thugs” on the ground than he was embarrassed by his behavior that resulted in him being convicted

These are the same type people that have to control everything around them including their families and Lord help the spouse that challenges them

According to the purple berets, a women’s advocacy group in Sonoma Ca., In 2 separate studies police were  up to 4 times more likely to commit domestic battery

Additionally, they were less than half as likely to be prosecuted for their crime

The most telling detail about the video above is that this cop feels perfectly comfortable about beating the Hell out of this guy in front of another cop and a street full of witnesses

Don’t get taken in by the false “racist cop” narrative. This cop isn’t racist, he’s a cop

This is the type of person who chooses to do this job and if they are not weeded out, this is what you get on the street

It’s not about black or white, it’s about blue…

And hero is not a color
