If you still think that this is just a few bad apples then I have a bridge to sell you in New York.   Enough of the default hero status because they strap on a gun and hang a badge off their shirt. These are people who have chosen this job so they could control others. They have been handed more power than anyone in that position ever should have.    What could possibly go wrong? I think this shows what.  Don’t forget that whatever this chief, or any cop anywhere, reports is given the weight of truth.  If some lying scumbag cop says that you shoved him, spit on him etc. It is up to you to prove that you didn’t . Unless you have video rolling, you are screwed. You will be in jail.     The chief got away with this simply because they chose to believe his lies. It tells you as much about them as it does him

“AMSTERDAM, Ohio – In the days after they ousted their police chief, the leaders of this town realized that the real mess he’d made wasn’t the jumble of trash and misplaced evidence that cluttered his office. It was what was buried underneath.

There they found forms featuring the mayor’s apparently forged signature that David Cimperman used to add more than 30 officers to the town’s police roster – one for every 16 residents. Many never did any paid police work for the town, logging hours instead for a private security business that state investigators say Cimperman ran on the side. He tried to outfit them with high-end radios. The riot gear and other surplus military equipment he bought with taxpayer money are missing.

What they didn’t find was evidence that the police force built out of fear of being without help in an emergency did much actual police work.”

“Even now, the people who hired Cimperman don’t know the depth of what went wrong in the part-time police force of this small town in the hills of northeastern Ohio. The new chief says he’s consulted with state criminal investigators to help figure it out.

What they know is that they could have prevented it all with a single phone call. They hired a chief without knowing he’d been fired for perjury, quit a job as his bosses started investigating missing police equipment and was charged with a felony for tampering with police radios to make untraceable phone calls.”

“Cimperman’s journey from disgraced police officer to police chief is a surprisingly common one, a USA TODAY Network investigation found.

Misconduct that might disqualify someone from being hired as a rookie cop hasn’t stopped officers from taking the top jobs at law enforcement agencies throughout the USA.”

“Police forces – and the officers they employ – have come under intense public scrutiny in recent years after a succession of high-profile scandals including questionable shootings and commanders who have themselves become criminals. The USA TODAY Network gathered misconduct records from hundreds of police departments and state licensing boards in nearly every state to shed light on the profession, amassing one of the largest stores of information on police wrongdoing.”

“The USA TODAY Network identified 32 people who became police chiefs or sheriffs despite a finding of serious misconduct, usually at another department. At least eight of them were found guilty of a crime. Others amassed records of domestic violence, improperly withholding evidence, falsifying records or other conduct that could impact the public they swore to serve.

In North Dakota, officials picked as their sheriff a man who’d led his co-workers on a 100 mph chase after drinking. A dispatcher summoned him to assist in his own pursuit. In Georgia, an officer fired from the state police after investigators found he’d carried out numerous on-duty affairs and lied about it landed a job as a small-town chief. A Washington trooper who was convicted of rendering criminal assistance in a case involving his son found work leading a small department in that state.

Those chiefs almost certainly represent only a small glimpse at the larger issue, because the records reporters were able to examine cover a small fraction of U.S. law enforcement agencies.”

“I always win in court” : Lying cop who shot Oscar Grant used racial slurs and beat him before shooting him in the back

Now let this sink in…. They had this information in hand when he was charged and went to trial. The cops knew, the D.A knew, the prosecutor knew and so did the judge.    They covered the best they could for this state sponsored psychopathic thug….. His only undoing was that there was raw video of him committing murder.   Don’t think that this is an isolated incident , because it is not. Cops will lie every time…And why?  Because they can.   They are on the brutality end of the state’s protection racket. Because of the “Heroes” out on the street, the state is able to generate enough income to keep them all in giant paychecks and run the prison industrial complex.     Change? My ass. There are billions and billions at stake and they won’t give up a dime or a dram of power.  Change will only come when enough people are so fed up that they finally storm the Bastille and hold all personally accountable.   Change is not going to come by cops, prosecutors and judges investigating cops; They all have too much vested in the system as is clearly shown by this case.

 

“According to documents released last week under a new California police transparency law, former BART police officer Anthony Pirone assaulted 22-yer-old Oscar Grant, called him the N-word, and lied about what led to another officer eventually opening fire and killing the young father, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Pirone claimed that he was “fighting for his life,” according to documents stemming from an internal investigation completed by an outside law firm after Grant’s death in 2009. In reality, Pirone instigated the incident with “repeated and unnecessary use of force” with Grant, along with his use of racial slurs.

Grant was pronounced dead nine hours after the BART shooting, in one of the first cases of extrajudicial murder to be caught on cellphone video and circulated via social media. Grant’s family were awarded more than $2.5 million from BART.

“Pirone was, in large part, responsible for setting the events in motion that created a chaotic and tense situation on the platform,” the document states, “setting the stage, even if inadvertent, for the shooting of Oscar Grant.”

Johannes Mehserle eventually shot and killed Grant. He served the minimum two-year sentence after being found guilty of manslaughter. Mehserle said he believed he had pulled his taser when he pulled his gun, though documents also suggest he was aware he was pulling his gun.

Mehserle can be seen, as the document states, “standing over Grant,” before reaching for his gun and “firing one round into the back of Grant.”

WYANDOTTE COUNTY, KS (KCTV) – A Wyandotte County deputy was booked into jail midday Tuesday on charges of rape and sexual exploitation of a child.

Michael Mastel,52, is charged with raping someone under the age of 14. Prosecutors said the criminal actions were all involving a single victim.

Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Office District Attorney Mark Dupree said the incidents happened at least three times from December 2011 and between March and June of last year. The victim came forward to tell what happened and authorities got involved.

“The defendant is alleged to have committed these acts with a child he knew and interacted with not in the course of his work with the sheriff’s office,” Dupree said.

Mastel began working for the sheriff’s office in August of 2008 and is now on administrative leave without pay.

A few bad apples : 6 patterson cops arrested for shakedowns, beatings and illegal traffic stops

That’s right, they only got six from one department. Just a few bad apples right? Or how about , Just the tip of the iceberg. If they got that many bad cops in one sitting, then how many did they miss?    This type of behavior is common place. Cops believe that because of blue privilege they are above the law.  Every day nationwide they lie on reports, perjure themselves and abuse those that they are sworn to protect.   The only problem these numbnuts encountered was they pissed enough people off who had money for lawyers to bring about their own downfall.     Have fun in prison boys where you can now be abused by your fellow co-workers.

From : Northjersey.com

“On Tuesday, a sixth Paterson police officer was arrested at city police headquarters, the latest Paterson cop swept up in a more than two-year federal probe.

The officers are accused of — and some have pleaded guilty to — crimes including beating up a hospital patient and a string of illegal traffic stops in which officers allegedly stole money and drugs.

Here’s who they all are:

Jonathan Bustios

In December, Jonathan Bustios admitted that he and other police officers singled out motorists they believed were carrying large amounts of money and then shook them down for cash.

During his guilty plea in federal court, Bustios said the illegal stops started in 2016 and continued into 2018. At the time of his arrest in April, federal authorities had revealed only crimes that took place in 2018.

In his guilty plea, Bustios also implicated Paterson Police Officer Eudy Ramos and others for participating in the conspiracy with him. Ramos had already been arrested in the case, but authorities had not accused any other cops of making the illegal stops.

Bustios was the third Paterson cop to plead guilty in the FBI probe. His plea was the first public indication that additional officers might have engaged in crimes.

Ruben McAusland

Last June, in federal court in Newark, Paterson police officer Ruben McAusland admitted he stole heroin, cocaine, crack and marijuana from crime scenes while he was in uniform and on duty in 2017. He also admitted that he later sold the drugs.

McAusland also admitted that in 2017, he pushed, punched and struck a suicidal patient while the victim was in a wheelchair and lying on a bed in a Paterson hospital. He said he then tried to cover it up by filing a false police report.

He pleaded guilty to one drug-dealing offense and conspiracy to violate the hospital patient’s civil rights — crimes that carry a total maximum prison sentence of 50 years and a minimum of five.

McAusland was the first Paterson police officer convicted in the FBI probe. He is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday.

His crimes carry a maximum prison sentence of 50 years and a minimum of five.

He was in the same police academy class as Daniel Pent and Ramos, two of the other police officers arrested in the probe.

Daniel Pent

On Tuesday morning, Pent, 32, was arrested at Paterson police headquarters. He is the sixth Paterson cop charged with crimes in the federal investigation.

Pent was hired by the Paterson department in January 2014. He was in the same police academy class as McAusland and Ramos, two of the other police officers arrested in the probe.

The Paterson Police Department is suspending Pent without pay for 30 days, officials said. After that, he will be placed on paid administrative leave until the charges against him are resolved, officials said.

Pent’s salary is listed as $53,589 on city payroll records.

Eudy Ramos

In April, Ramos was arrested by the FBI. Last week, Ramos was indicted on nine counts of civil rights crimes in the FBI probe.

The indictment alleged illegal traffic stops and shakedowns by Ramos. Additionally, it contained charges that Ramos conspired with four other Paterson police officers— including Bustios and Matthew Torres — to target vehicles for illegal stops and searches and taking occupants’ money.

He was in the same police academy class as Pent and McAusland, two of the other officers arrested in the probe.

Ramos is scheduled to be arraigned on charges Wednesday.

Roger Then

In May, Roger Then was arrested by the FBI in connection with the beating of a suicidal hospital patient while the victim was in a wheelchair and in a hospital bed.

During his guilty plea, McAusland said that Then, his former partner, also participated in the hospital assault and coverup.

Then was accused of making a video recording of the beating, which was allegedly carried out by an unidentified city police officer, according to a federal affidavit establishing probable cause for Then’s arrest.

The officers’ alleged attack injured the victim’s face, and he needed eye surgery as a result of the beating, federal authorities said.

Then has been a member of the Police Department since July 2016.

It was the same incident in which McAusland was also implicated.

Then was the fourth Paterson police officer arrested by the FBI.

Matthew Torres

In December, Torres was arrested in the FBI probe. He was the fifth Paterson cop arrested in the probe.

Torres was charged with violating people’s civil rights and was accused of participating in an illegal traffic stop in Paterson in December 2017.

During this traffic stop, Torres and Ramos, one of the other accused cops, allegedly took $1,000 in cash from a passenger in the vehicle.

In 2017, Torres was suspended for 30 days in connection with allegations of steroid use, according to city law enforcement sources.

Unknown officer

Court records indicate that at least one more Paterson police officer is suspected of participating in the crimes, but authorities have not identified the officer.

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.
