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.”
And there you have it; You never know who the man with the gun is. “He’s a cop, he risks his life everyday” “It’s one of the Heroes in blue..” It’s just a few bad apples”…. Bullshit and more bullshit. These are guys who choose to control others for a living. These are guys who are 2 to 4 times more likely to commit domestic violence than the average person (1). These are guys who routinely lie, beat and steal as part of their daily routine (2) These are guys that you may not want to be pulled over by on a dark lonely highway. Stay safe…
“A Denver police officer has been arrested and jailed on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman he had met last month while responding to a call at her home, the Denver Police Department said Saturday.
DPD announced in a news release that Johnny Leon-Alvarez, 29, was arrested after he was named as a suspect in the investigation of a sex assault reported early Friday. He has been a Denver police officer since 2018 and was suspended without pay after the arrest, the release said.
An arrest affidavit says Leon-Alvarez met the 27-year-old victim in December when he was among officers who responded to her home. She had called police “regarding an argument she had with her significant other.”
After meeting her, the affidavit says, Leon-Alvarez began contacting the woman.
“One of the officers who responded began texting her afterward to check on her,” the document says. “Over time the (texts) became flirty, until the previous evening (Thursday) when they arranged to go on a date.”
The woman told police that Leon-Alvarez took her to Dave & Busters, an arcade and restaurant, on Thursday night. She said she recalled drinking, and at midnight the officer drove her home, the affidavit says.
“She tried to say goodnight at the door,” the report says. “She did not remember how he ended up coming in the house.”
The affidavit says police were called to her home at 2:55 a.m. Friday, and it says the woman’s roommate corroborated some details of her report, including that the woman protested any physical activity.”
(1) ” Domestic violence is 2 to 4 times more common in police families than in the general population. In two separate studies, 40% of police officers self-report that they have used violence against their domestic partners within the last year. In the general population, it’s estimated that domestic violence occurs in about 10% of families” Purple berets, Women’s advocacy, http://purpleberets.org/
Trust me, you have nothing to fear when you see cherries lighting up your dashboard. That is a sworn officer of the court behind you and anything that he says will be given the weight of truth. Put your hands behind your back and let the man with the gun put you in handcuffs. Remember….. You have nothing to fear….
” An off-dufy NYPD cop was arrested for allegedly threatening a motorist with his gun following a dispute at a red light in Queens, police said.
Officer Philip Case, 49, who was slapped with a menacing charge, got into an argument with another man at the corner of Van Doren Street and 108th Street in Corona about 10:15 p.m. Friday, authorities said.
With both cars stopped, Case flashed his gun and then sped off once the light turned green, cops said.
The victim called police and Chase was arrested a block away.
It’s unclear what prompted the argument, but police said both Chase and the victim remained in their vehicles during the confrontation.
Chase was released after getting a desk appearance ticket for the offense.”
You just can’t make up some of the sick. twisted shit that people on power trips will do. From beating old ladies to shooting dogs and children, their is no end to their feeling of self empowerment. Think I am exaggerating? Go to this site’s search bar and enter the term “Rape”. Who ever would suspect that people who want to control others for a living would be so sexually violent? One of my personal votes for the Golden cop award (Besides the one above) is the Alabama cop who pulled over a man for loud music and forced him to perform oral sex at gunpoint in the back of his squad car. https://deborahleejarrett.com/2016/12/09/cop-pulls-man-over-for-loud-music-forces-him-to-give-him-oral-sex-at-gun-point/ ……….A few bad apples my ass. Were that the case then I would have a hard time running this website. Unfortunately for myself and you and our families, it is all too easy. And don’t forget the rest of the old adage….” A bad apple Spoils the whole bin
A former Louisiana deputy was arrested with child pornography charges in relation to an infant rape.
St. Gabriel Police chief Kevin Ambeau said former Deputy Shadrick Jones is accused of coercing a mother to perform a sexual act on her one-year-old son to avoid being arrested for not appearing in court for a traffic violation.
Police say the incident happened on June 6 about 30 minutes after Jones’ shift ended. He was working for the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office.
The mother has been identified as Iyehesa Todd. According to NBC affiliate WVLA, Todd was arrested and charged with first-degree rape and incest. She was booked into the Iberville Parish jail.
Police say Jones filmed the rape on his personal phone. They confirmed the video belonged to Jones.
“I’ve never seen anything so disgusting and sickening in my life,” Ambeau said. “I’ve also reached out to the Baton Rouge of Homeland Security to see if we can bring in federal charges.”
Ambeau emphasized that there are more good police officers than bad, but “this Jones is a bad apple.”
You should feel perfectly safe being pulled over on a dark ,deserted highway by a man with a gun and handcuffs. He’s one of the good guys, a hero and he keeps us all safe. He is part of the thin blue line that separates us from anarchy….. Right? Nothing to fear at all ….
” An Idaho County Sheriff’s Office deputy was fired Friday following his arrest on multiple counts of underage sex charges.
According to a press release from Idaho County, Nick Harris was arrested Friday in Siskiyou County, California, on two counts of lewd conduct with a minor under 16-years-old and one count of sexual abuse of a minor under 16-years-old.
Harris, who worked for the sheriff’s office for three years, was placed on paid administrative leave in May as an investigation into the allegations took place. He was in California as the investigation occurred, the release said. The Idaho State Police conducted the investigation.
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.”
