Update: Cop heard scary noise before killing Australian woman

What a bunch of insufferable cowards and bullies. Over in Afghanistan a U.S. soldier cannot shoot an enemy combatant unless they are actively holding a weapon.   In the U.S hundreds of unarmed citizens are gunned down every year because some “Hero” feared for his life.    This woman died because one coward heard a frightening noise.  Do you know what the difference is? In Afghanistan they are trying to “Win hearts and minds”.     Here, they don’t care because on their turf, you exist in a police state.  Don’t like it? Well you may well end up jailed on some trumped up charge if you tell them that. Resisting, obstructing, whatever charge they want to call it.     Then after you are processed by the system you get to appear before a corrupt judge who’s sole means of income is derived by the state collecting fees and fines from you and other fine citizens.    Sometimes along the way though, innocent people get killed. But hey, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.    This is America, land of the free.

“MINNEAPOLIS — Five days after the police shooting of Justine Damond in south Minneapolis, Police Chief Janee Harteau spoke publicly for the first time, CBS Minnesota reports.

Harteau has been out of town since Saturday’s shooting, but returned to work on Thursday.

The Australian native was shot to death by a Minneapolis police officer Saturday night, after she called police to get help for a woman she thought was being attacked in an alley near her home. She then dialed 911 to make sure authorities were responding to the correct address, CBS Minnesota reports. Damond was shot as she came up to the squad’s driver side window, by Officer Mohamed Noor.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) is conducting the investigation. Harteau said she’s asked that the process be expedited to provide transparency.

Harteau has been under growing pressure to speak out about her department’s officer involved shooting, with some in community questioning why she wouldn’t cut her vacation short and return with answers. Harteau addressed reporters just after 5 p.m., saying she was backpacking in the mountains, making it very difficult to return sooner. She said she had spoken with Damond’s fiance Don on Thursday morning.

Though she defended Noor’s training, Harteau says the shooting “did not have to happen” and that Noor’s actions “go against who we are in the department.”

“Justine didn’t have to die. Based on the BCA information, this should not have happened.”

“Noor’s partner, Matthew Harrity, told investigators that he and Noor heard a loud noise immediately before Damond approached the squad car.

The police chief was told by Damond’s fiance that people are scared to call 911 following the deadly incident, CBS News’ Jamie Yuccas reports.

The police chief is working to regain the community’s trust at this point and the chief reassured Damond’s family that she will do everything in her power to make sure justice is served for Damond, Yuccas reports.

Noor has been on the force for 21 months, while Harrity has been an officer for one year.

Damond, 40, was a yoga teacher and meditation instructor.”

Court rules to protect names of lying cops

You can’t have one without the other. The courts and the corrupt judges sitting on the bench need these lying cops to bring proceeds into their courts.   No lies, no convictions, no money to run a hugely expensive system.  The courts criminal courts have now become a self perpetuating bureaucracy.     Right or wrong does not exist only revenue does. Take a plea , pay the fine and pay the salaries of those set out to persecute you.

“The names of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies who’ve lied, stolen, falsified reports and committed other types of “moral” misconduct are confidential and cannot be handed over to prosecutors — even in pending criminal cases in which the deputies are listed as potential witnesses — a Los Angeles appeals court ruled Tuesday.

The decision by the state’s 2nd District Court of Appeal makes clear just how secret officers’ identities and personnel files are in California. The ruling is also the latest turn in the fight over a secret list compiled by Los Angeles County’s sheriff of 300 deputies whose history of misconduct could damage their credibility if they are ever called to testify in criminal cases.

“It’s a victory for cops everywhere,” said Elizabeth Gibbons, an attorney for the Assn. for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, the union that represents rank-and-file deputies.

Last fall, the union sued the department over Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell’s attempt to disclose the names to the district attorney’s office. The union had argued that revealing the names to prosecutors, even in pending cases, would violate state peace officer confidentiality laws and draw unfair scrutiny of deputies whose mistakes might have happened long ago.

The appeals court agreed on the strict confidentiality of law enforcement personnel files. But it left open the possibility that names could be disclosed pursuant to a court order.

California has some of the strictest protections on law enforcement officer records in the country. Discipline hearings, personnel files and even the names of officers accused in internal affairs investigations are secret.

“Notifying an outside agency, even a prosecutor’s office, that a deputy has an administratively founded allegation of misconduct involving moral turpitude cannot be characterized as anything other than disclosing information obtained from the peace officer’s personnel file,” the court said in its opinion.

But some advocates for police transparency slammed the decision.

“There should not be greater concern for protecting officers with histories of lying, domestic abuse, evidence tampering and other immoral conduct from public scrutiny than for ensuring that individuals accused of crimes receive a fair trial,” said Melanie Ochoa, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California.

The ACLU, along with other advocacy groups, filed a friend-of-the-court brief in March, asking the appeals court to reject the deputies union’s request that none of the names of problem deputies be sent to prosecutors.

Brady vs. Maryland

McDonnell’s effort to send deputies’ names to prosecutors had nothing to do with recommending that the officers be charged with crimes, the department contended. Instead it would have been a heads-up to the district attorney’s office that the deputies were potentially vulnerable to attacks on their credibility if they were ever called to testify, and that prosecutors would potentially have to alert defense attorneys about the names.

Under the 1963 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Brady vs. Maryland, prosecutors are obligated to alert defendants to any evidence that could aid the defense. That evidence includes information that could undermine an officer’s credibility. Not doing so could result in wrongful convictions.

Right now, police agencies in at least a dozen counties in California regularly do precisely what McDonnell was attempting. Some departments, including those in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura, have been giving prosecutors the names of problem officers for well over a decade.

Legal experts say Tuesday’s decision could begin to change that.

Although the ruling pertains to the Sheriff’s Department, analysts say it could embolden police unions across the state to refuse a prosecutor’s request to identify problematic officers who might be called as witnesses.”

Woman calls police, frightened “Hero” shoots her dead

And to make her even more frightening…. She was in her Jammies. I think we all know that this degenerate is going to fall back on the old “Feared for his life” defense.   But what is wrong when the bar is higher to shoot a foreign fighter in a hostile country than to gun down an  American citizen?     Don’t think for a minute that you are safe in the presence of a cop. Your life is in danger any time you have contact with LEO. They are cowards and  will shoot at anything that frightens them. That means you, your dog, your cat or some woman in her pajamas. Just remember that it is we, the people who give them this authority. Remember that it is us who pay them, us who elect the Sheriffs and us who elect the politicians that make appointments.   Think you live in a free country? Think again. You live in a police state and will continue to do so as long as you condone what they do.   By not doing anything, you condone what they do. The time to resist is coming. When it is your time, do your part.

“MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota — A woman who called 911 to report a possible sexual assault was shot and killed by a police officer late Saturday night in an incident that is drawing worldwide attention, reports say.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports sources with knowledge of the shooting say Justine Damond, 40, of Sydney, Australia, was in her pajamas and talking to the driver of the patrol car when the officer in the passenger seat drew his weapon and shot Damond through the door of the vehicle.

The officers’ body cameras were turned off at the time of the shooting. No weapons were found at the scene.

An autopsy shows Damond, formerly Justine Ruszczyk, died of a wound to her abdomen, CNN reports.”

Video: Hero cop beats homeless black woman in store

Think about this seriously: We have given these people authority over us?

You and I have agreed to give our freedom up to armed thugs?

We the people as a nation approve of beating , killing and bullying on our streets?

I think not

The time is coming that we need to take our freedom back

We now live in a defacto police state on both the federal and the local level

We need to get the domestic warriors off of our streets and put them behind bars where they belong

 

 

 

 

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

module-everyday-heroes-right
Posted by Deborah Jarrett

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.”

Welcome to Florida: Cops unloose canine on unarmed man

It really makes you wonder what is wrong with these people. Do you have to actually pass a test to show that you are sadistic, racist and cruel to be hired on?    The stories are unending. If you can still seriously believe that this is just a few bad apples, then I have some land to sell you in Florida.     Oh yeah, just make sure you don’t get pulled over while driving. But, I guess from this story, you are not safe at home either.

– Bartow police are reviewing a claim of excessive force after a video was posted online showing a police dog being released on a man who was later charged with resisting arrest.

Marquis Wright, 21, of Bartow, was approached at his home as police tried to serve a warrant on Wright’s younger brother. Three officers are present in the video, which shows Wright on the ground.

A K9 appears to bite the man, and pictures show several places where Wright’s skin was punctured.

“He is a musician, he coaches basketball in the community, so you can’t paint him as some thuggish person that is uncivilized,” said Pastor Clayton Cowart.

But police charged Wright with resisting arrest with and without violence.They say the 50-second video doesn’t tell the whole story of the encounter that lasted several minutes.

Family says police had the wrong guy, that it was really Wright’s little brother who violated probation.

Cowart says the incident parallels what African Americans have experienced in cities around the country.

“We teach our children to go out, respect the law, do what’s right,” he said. “Well, when you do, it still happens.”

Bartow police say this incident is under review, and have met with the pastor, who is also asking for the state attorney’s office to step in.

“Those officers need to be taken out of office if they have this kind of mindset,” said Cowart. “Second, we need a continued addressing of these issues.”

Over the last year, Bartow police have been plagued by issues of race. An officer was fired for calling Barack Obama a gorilla. The chief has also been accused of firing another because he was black.

“Even in our own community, sometimes people just seem to push it by,” said Cowart. “We need to address it and say it does exist. That’s the first thing, you can’t address what you deny.

New York cop assassinated while sitting in patrol car

Well, I guess that was one pissed off person. I wonder what happened to him that brought him to that point? Not everyone is afraid of death or consequences. Everyone, in or out of uniform, should be careful who they fuck with.

“A New York cop was “assassinated” while sitting in her marked patrol vehicle early Wednesday in what NYPD commissioner James O’Neill called an “unprovoked attack.”

Miosotis Familia, 48, died at a hospital early Wednesday, and her suspected shooter died during a separate confrontation with police, who encountered the man running a few blocks away. An uninvolved bystander was shot in the stomach during that incident, but was in stable condition at a hospital, The New York Daily News reported.”

“Officials said the attack happened in the Bronx just after 12:30 a.m. while Familia was sitting in her vehicle with her partner. Her partner radioed for help while other officers spotted the suspect, identified as 34-year-old Alexander Bonds, and began chasing him.

Bonds drew his revolver on police before they began shooting, authorities said.

“She was on duty, serving this city protecting people, doing what she believed in and the job she loved,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said. “After this shocking and sudden attack, her fellow officers came to her aid immediately.”
