More lying cops : Video evidence increasingly disproves police narratives

Just a short while ago the cops who killed George Floyd would have skated. A concerted lie ” All I did was hold him down while he resisted” would have done it.   Now, they are caught on video at every turn and there is nothing they can do about it.

“Minneapolis police initially told the public that George Floyd died after a “medical incident during a police interaction.” The Buffalo, New York, department said a protester “tripped and fell.” Philadelphia police alleged that a college student who suffered a serious head wound had assaulted an officer.

All three claims were quickly disproved by videos seen widely on the internet and television, fueling mistrust and embarrassing agencies that made misleading or incomplete statements that painted their actions in a far more favorable light.

Police departments deny lying but acknowledge sometimes making mistakes when releasing information in fast-moving, complicated situations. The videos, they say, do not always capture officers’ perspectives.

Defense lawyers say the inaccurate statements are encouraged by a culture of silence in which officers protect misbehaving colleagues, a court system that rarely holds officers accountable and a public that has given police the benefit of the doubt.”

LAKELAND, Fla. — A video showing what appears to be a Polk County deputy punching a handcuffed suspect two times before placing him inside the back of a marked deputy cruiser is making rounds on social media.

The graphic video, sent to ABC Action News on Thursday, shows a man wearing a neon green t-shirt, later identified as 20-year-old Fernando Jimenez, being taken into custody by two Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

As one of the deputies holds Jimenez to the back of the cruiser, the second deputy appears to have punched Jimenez twice before placing him inside.

One of the punches appears to have hit Jimenez in the head.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the deputy punched Jimenez “whenever he was trying to get him under control.”

Who would guess that a guy who wants to control people for a living would end up being a child molester?  The other cops like to do the high and mighty because he is a child molester , but….. According to the purple Berets , a women’s advocacy  cops are 4 times more likely to commit domestic abuse (And six times less to be prosecuted) than the average citizen. Additionally , according to a national police chiefs survey, 47 %  of cops witnessed activity by other cops that was illegal and did not report it. (Add the 47% to the ones actually doing the deed and that is a large number)     It is the nature of the game that attracts the animal and in this case it attracts bullies, wife beaters, sadists, power mongers and the occasional child molester.    The good cops?  They are the true rarity and they usually get out of the game when they figure it out .       And yes, his name really is Wigglesworth  

“Wigglesworth was arrested by the FDLE, which charged him with two counts of sexual battery of a child younger than 12 and three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child younger than 12. According to Sheriff Mike Prendergast, Wigglesworth was hired July 2, 2018.”

“Wigglesworth was booked into the Citrus County Jail and ordered held without bond until after first appearance, which is scheduled for Saturday. The case will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office, Fifth Judicial Circuit.”

Who’s pulling you over? : Cop who works for P.D. that refuses body cams busted on cell phone beating man 19 times in the head

Sounds like a coincidence doesn’t it ? Make sure that the cops don’t have body cams so they can lie, cheat, steal and beat the crap out of people with impunity.  But, welcome to the cell phone age because you are on camera.   People have had enough of the police state and enough of out of control cops. It is time for them to be reigned in and reminded that we not only pay their salaries, but out number them a 1000 to 1.   Smarten up bully boys because you are soon to reap the whirlwind.

“St Johns County deputy sheriff Anthony J Deleo, Jr hit Christopher Butler 19-times with his baton and kicked him in the head twice while Butler was unarmed; and Historic City News readers know this because it was captured on video taken by an alert citizen using his smartphone.  The technology for police to create their own video using body cameras has been a possibility since the early-2000’s.

Deleo’s boss, lame-duck sheriff David Shoar, withdrew Deleo’s commission today, ending his employment with the sheriff’s office. Shoar also filed a criminal complaint with the State Attorney of the 7th Judicial Circuit who will review the case and decide if the charge against Deleo will be prosecuted.  Deleo is facing a charge of aggravated battery, a second-degree felony, for his use of force against Christopher Butler during the December 29th traffic stop.

Two other deputies who were involved in the incident, Joseph McGinnis and Patrick Ponticello, were placed on paid administrative leave after the video surfaced. Those deputies will not face criminal charges, according to Shoar; but their actions are still being investigated by internal affairs. The trooper who pulled Butler over and used his Taser on him was not disciplined, according to televised reports from an unnamed spokesman with the Florida Highway Patrol.

Butler’s lawyer, Attorney John Phillips, said he is looking into filing suit against the sheriff’s office, as well as the deputies involved. He claims that the lack of camera, particularly with St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office that refuses body cams, and the lack of video oversight, is an attempt to gain immunity.

In a public statement from Phillips, he said that he hopes more arrests are not coming.  “We hope reform is coming.  This is the first step towards justice. If you have information or have been abused by the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, please come forward.”

Shoar made a front-page splash recently accompanied by his delegate, St Augustine Beach police chief Robert Hardwick (who is concurrently Robert Hardwick candidate for sheriff).  Both men and St Augustine City Police Chief Barry Fox arrogantly proclaimed that body cameras, which monitor an officer’s activity during a shift, invade personal privacy, come at a high cost, and lack sufficient accuracy.”

Beware; any contact you have with LEO can end either your life or your freedom.  Read the following and then ask the question “7 shots ?” That’s right 7 shots into a man who at the very least had his hands cuffed behind his back.    Color does not a hero make. Do not trust a man on a dark road with handcuffs and a gun, no matter what, even if he is wearing blue.    Just think about this; If anything bad happens, you get to make a complaint to a cop from his department.     What a joke these thugs are. People have had about enough from this police state and a veritable tidal wave of resistance is coming their way.   Get it while you can because the people have had enough,

“A Maryland police officer was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter after he fatally shot a man whose arms were handcuffed behind his back inside a squad car on Monday night, authorities said.

Prince George’s County Police Chief Henry Stawinski announced the charges against Cpl. Michael Owen Tuesday evening, saying that after reviewing the facts of the case the chief was unable to provide a “reasonable explanation” for the events that led to the deadly shooting of William Green.

“I have concluded that what happened last night is a crime,” Stawinski said during a press conference.”

“Officers responded to the scene in Temple Hills, south of Washington, DC, Monday night over reports that a driver had hit several vehicles, police spokesperson Christina Cotterman told reporters.

Upon identifying the driver, police said the man appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance and requested a drug recognition expert to assist them.

The driver was then cuffed with his hands behind his back and placed in the front passenger seat of the police car, which Cotterman said is standard arrest protocol. Then, the officer got into the driver’s seat.

At some point while waiting for the expert, the shooting occurred, police said.

According to Cotterman, officers attempted lifesaving measures and transported the man to a hospital, where he died.

Police initially said that independent witnesses saw or heard “a struggle of some sort” before hearing “loud bangs,” but Stawinski said Tuesday night the reports of a struggle were not corroborated.

The chief also said that despite initial reports that police said they smelled PCP and that Green was seat-belted in the cruiser when he was shot, it did not appear that the psychedelic drug was involved. The chief added he could not say with certainty that Green was seat-belted.

“I can’t understand why you had him in the car seat, seatbelt down, handcuffed, and then they shoot him? For what reason? What could he possibly do?” his mother, Brenda Green, had earlier told Fox 5 DC.

Stawinski said police believe seven shots were fired, adding that was part of the reason why police filed charges against the officer. In addition to second-degree murder and manslaughter, Owen, a 10-year veteran of the department, is facing associated weapons charges in connection with the Green’s death.”

Who’s pulling you over? 2019 wrap up from Baltimore

module-everyday-heroes-right

“A Baltimore police officer caught on tape last year beating a suspect went to prison this year. A veteran police sergeant filmed allegedly arresting, threatening and harassing innocent men faces a slew of charges. And more officers tied to the Gun Trace Task Force were charged or sentenced in federal court.

A violent 2019 in the city was also a busy year for prosecutors, internal affairs detectives and others charged with policing Baltimore’s police. Court records, sentencing memorandums and Baltimore Sun archives show that at least 20 Baltimore police officers — including some who are no longer with the department — were either charged, sentenced, or suspended during 2019.


The scope of the crimes and allegations are broad and follow a particularly notorious 2018, which included federal arrests and trials of officers of the GTTF, and another officer charged with drug trafficking. This year’s charges range from drunken driving to an officer being sentenced to five years in prison after nearly running over a man in a crosswalk, then drawing his gun after the man spilled tea on his car.

The public relations damage crested in October, when Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said she had a list of “hundreds of officers” with alleged credibility issues.

A total of 305 officers were flagged in Mosby’s list that was forwarded to the department this month.

 

Baltimore police officials say they are working to address not only problems in the department, but also to become more responsive to members of the public. Police Commissioner Michael Harrison released a staffing plan last week that calls for more than doubling the number of internal affairs detectives to help reduce backlogs and respond more swiftly to complaints against officers.”

Who’s pulling you over? : “Hero” cop busted on film beating handcuffed man

Are you surprised that he lied about it? Why shouldn’t he, he is after all a “sworn officer of the court” . He lied because he could; he lied because he had blue privileged.   As long as “They go home safe”…. Right. Any time you are in contact with LEO you are in a lot more danger than they are.  You are about to be subjected to an armed power monger and it can go very badly if it doesn’t go your way.   Maybe he will feel like being the nice guy that day and you drive off…. Or maybe not. Maybe you will get to meet the man behind the badge and find out why he chose to exert control over people for a living.    Think about that the next time you have cherries flashing in your rear view.

Philadelphia police sergeant caught on video punching a handcuffed man is arrested

“Philadelphia Police Sgt. Jason Reid — who a judge said committed “outrageous” misconduct by assaulting a man and covering it up — was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with assault, tampering with public records, false reports, and obstructing the administration of law.

Reid, 42, a 16-year veteran of the force who spent much of his career in the Highway Patrol unit, was suspended from the department with intent to dismiss after 30 days, according to a police spokesperson, who declined to comment further.”

” District Attorney Larry Krasner said the arrest followed an Internal Affairs investigation of an incident that took place June 8.

On that day, Reid placed Ronald Wallace in handcuffs in the back of a police car — and then, body camera footage showed, held Wallace’s head with one hand and punched him in the face with the other. Reid then arrested Wallace for threatening an officer and resisting arrest. In paperwork, he reported that Wallace’s injuries resulted from Wallace repeatedly hitting his own head against the car window.”

“According to court records, at least five other people had previously filed complaints with Philadelphia police saying Reid punched them in the face or head — but none of those complaints was sustained by the department’s Internal Affairs unit.”

“The charges echo repeated allegations made by defense lawyers over Reid’s unusually long history of citizen complaints, including 10 allegations of physical abuse, and uses of force, including the shootings of six people in the course of duty. None of the complaints against him were sustained, according to the documents. All of the previous uses of deadly force were deemed to be within department guidelines.

In May of this year, Reid received an official commendation for his role in a traffic stop: a Medal of Bravery “for the performance of an outstanding arrest where the officer’s effort is met by an armed and dangerous adversary.” That was the January 2018 arrest of 22-year-old Stefon Crawley, whom Reid and another officer, Timothy Stephan, shot a total of five times after finding a gun in his possession during a traffic stop.”

Who’s pulling you over? : LAPD cop caught on body cam fondling dead woman’s breasts

c3bf2f8cad3331a02d08ee1562596e7b

Sure thing they do, they are regular heroes. You know, just like this guy. So, for you cop loving naysayers out there; Are you still saying”I don’t have anything to worry about because I don’t do anything wrong” Maybe you should do a little reading on this website and see what pops up when you put something like “rape” in the search bar.   Wow ! If you still feel safe, there is something wrong with your situational awareness.

Any time that you have any interaction with any LEO you are risking having it be one of the people on these pages

 

“LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles police officer is under investigation after a random review of body camera footage showed him fondling a dead woman’s breasts, according to a person briefed on the incident.

The Los Angeles Police Department officer and a partner had responded to a report of a body at a residence, the person said. The officer fondled the corpse’s breasts when his partner was not in the room.

The person, who was not authorized to publicly discuss the case and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said officials conducted a random inspection of the officer’s body camera videos and found the incriminating footage.

The officer had disabled the body camera but the act was caught on video when he turned it back on, the person said, because the devices have two-minute buffering periods to capture what happens right before they are activated.

Josh Rubenstein, an LAPD spokesman, would not comment on the allegation but said the unidentified officer has been removed from active duty while the incident is investigated.

“If this allegation is true, then the behavior exhibited by this officer is not only wrong, but extremely disturbing, and does not align with the values we, as police officers, hold dear and these values include respect and reverence for the deceased,” the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the union that represents rank-and-file officers, said in a statement. “This behavior has no place in law enforcement.”

The person did not know when the incident occurred or when it was discovered. It is not clear how long the officer fondled the corpse or what prompted him to turn the camera back on.”

2 Dallas deputies arrested for looting Home Depot destroyed by tornado

Just remember, any time that you get pulled over, that the man or woman with the gun and handcuffs may have the moral integrity of these two cretins.  Your freedom or possibly your life could be in jeopardy any time you have contact with them. Hero is an action, not a color.

From the Dallas times

Joseph Bobadilla and Rebecca Evans were charged with theft. Bobadilla is accused of stealing items from the leveled store and exchanging them at other stores for credit, sheriff’s office says

Two Dallas County sheriff’s deputies were arrested Thursday after they were accused of stealing from a Home Depot store destroyed by a tornado last month.

Dallas County sheriff's deputy Joseph Bobadilla, 25, was charged with theft after authorities say he was looting at a Home Depot destroyed by a tornado last month.

Joseph Bobadilla, 25, and Rebecca Evans, 41, were charged with theft of property between $750 and $2,500. As a public servants, they face an enhanced theft charge, a state jail felony, authorities said.

Home Depot’s corporate office notified the sheriff’s office that Bobadilla had stolen from the store on Forest Lane, which was leveled when several tornadoes tore through the Dallas area Oct. 20.

Bobadilla was booked into the Dallas County Jail about noon Thursday. He posted a $500 bond about 1:40 p.m., records show. Evans was booked into the jail around 3 p.m., also on a $500 bond.

The sheriff’s office said Bobadilla had been working off-duty guarding the Home Depot store after it was destroyed.

“During his shifts, Bobadilla would take items from the store and later exchange them at another location for in-store credit, subsequently purchasing items with the in-store credits he received,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release. Details on Evans’ arrest weren’t immediately available.”
