Dumb ass cop lies to attorney he pulled over ,tells him it is illegal to record him due to new state law

The video comes from defense attorney Jesse Bright, who also drives for Uber in his spare time. Bright said he was making a round trip for a customer on Feb. 26 and was stopped shortly after the passenger got back into the vehicle.

The passenger was asked to exit the vehicle and submit to a search. The location where Bright stopped was described as a “drug house” by an officer heard on the video.

When Bright kept recording the interaction, Wilmington Police Sergeant Kenneth Becker, confronted him and told him to stop recording.

In an interview Wednesday, Bright said he’s confident the officers knew the information they were giving was false.

“They should know–I’m sure they do know–that it’s legal to record police,” Bright said.

Officer: Hey bud, turn that off, OK?

Driver: No, I’ll keep recording. Thank you. It’s my right.

Officer: Don’t record me. You got me?

Driver: Look, you’re a police officer on duty. I can record you.

Officer walks to driver’s side of vehicle

Officer: Be careful because there is a new law. Turn it off or I’ll take you to jail.

Driver: For recording you? What is the law?

Officer: Step out of the car.

Driver: What are you arresting me for? I’m sitting here in my car. I’m just recording in case anything happens. I’m surrounded by five police officers.

Officer:  You’re being a jerk.

Driver: I’m scared right now. I’m not being a jerk. I’m recording in case anything happens.

Officer: You better hope we don’t find something in your car?

Driver: You’re not searching my car?

Officer: I’m going to search your car.

Driver: You’re not searching my car.

Officer calls for K-9 unit

Driver:  Bring the K-9s. I don’t care. I know my rights.

Officer: I hope so. I know what the law is.

Driver: I know the law. I’m an attorney, so I would hope I know what the law is.

Officer: And an Uber driver?

Bright said he decided to record because he was being asked several questions. He said after being told he would be taken to jail, Sergeant Becker attempted to open his door, but Bright said he held on tight and wouldn’t let him in.

Rest of the story and video here: http://www.wect.com/story/34695605/video-shows-wpd-sergeant-falsely-telling-citizen-to-stop-recording-him-because-of-state-law

That was a “sworn officer of the court” lying his ass off right there

In court testimony a judge will give his statements the weight of truth

And a possibly innocent citizen will be put in jail

If you get called to jury duty

Make sure you go

And make sure that no lying cop puts an innocent person in jail

Stand up and do your civic duty

And don’t let  a liar get away with it

To Perve : 29 Yr. veteran cop busted for child porn

Posted by Deborah Jarrett

, Detroit Free Press 3:41 p.m. ET Feb. 22, 2017

“A 29-year veteran Detroit police officer has been suspended amid allegations that he received and possessed child pornography.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig called the claims outlined in a federal criminal complaint against Miguel Angel Martinez “deeply troubling.”

“Any time a police officer makes a decision to engage in alleged criminal acts, and this one is particularly troubling, certainly it’s a stain on the Detroit Police Department,” Craig told reporters at a press conference this afternoon. “It’s not reflective of the entire organization.”

A sergeant from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in Reno, Nev., working undercover was using a peer-to-peer file sharing program when he discovered files that appeared to reference child pornography linked to a computer IP address that belonged to Martinez, who lives in Trenton.

The sergeant was able to download 14 “incomplete but viewable” files from the IP address between Sept. 5 and Sept. 12, according to the complaint. The videos showed children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, the complaint says.

A review of a law enforcement database indicated that the same IP address has been observed sharing at least 100 files that are of interest to child pornography investigations. And on two dates in January, that IP was observed sharing child pornography, according to the complaint.

Federal investigators searched Martinez’s home Tuesday and seized computer-related items. During an interview, Martinez told investigators he “may have seen” child pornography files, the complaint says.

Craig said Martinez has been suspended with pay. If charges are filed, the status would change to a suspension without pay, he said.

Martinez worked as a patrol officer on the west side of the city. Craig said he’s not aware of any other allegations of wrongdoing against him.”

So who is it that is going to pull you over on that dark highway?

A hero?

Or someone with a dark secret?

Don’t ever think automatically that a cop is telling the truth or doing the right thing

Lying cop on trial after pepper spraying and kicking handcuffed man who gave him the finger

Posted by Deborah Lee Jarrett

“State Trooper Ryan Luckenbaugh stepped way over a legal line when he kicked a handcuffed Harrisburg activist in the face during a May 2015 confrontation in the city, a prosecutor told a Dauphin County jury Tuesday afternoon.

Then, Luckenbaugh compounded his crime by lying repeatedly on an affidavit that unjustly sent Christopher Sienneck to county prison for two weeks simply for flashing his middle finger at the cops, Senior Deputy District Attorney Stephen Zawisky said.

“This case is about an abuse of police power,” Zawisky said as Luckenbaugh’s trial on assault and official oppression charges opened.

That fateful kick was even filmed by the dash camera on a police cruiser, he said. “You’re going to see the kick on video,” Zawisky promised the jurors.

Things aren’t so straightforward, however, Defense Attorney Edward Spreha Jr. countered.

“I’m not going to stand here before you and say (Luckenbaugh) acted 100 percent appropriately on that night,” Spreha said. “He is going to admit that things should have been done differently.”

Still, he insisted Luckenbaugh’s acts “didn’t his to the level of criminal activity.”

Spreha called Siennick “the local leftist” and insisted he was “looking for a reaction” from the police. It was Siennick, he said, who ran when Luckenbaugh and his partner, Trooper Michael Trotta, approached him at Second and Locust streets.

“He escalated the situation,” Spreha said of Siennick.

Zawisky saw that differently. He said there was no reason for Luckenbaugh and Trotta – who was later fired over other misconduct allegations – to even be in the city around 2:30 a.m. on May 16, 2015. They decided to cruise in the Second Street area because they knew the bars were closing on Restaurant Row, the DA said, and “They went there looking for action.”

When they first encountered Siennick, he was skateboarding down the street in the wrong direction, the prosecutor said. He said that even though Siennick flashed the troopers his middle finger as he passed them “that is protected speech.”

Yet their dash cam recorded Luckenbaugh saying “Oh, that’s going to be a BPR,” meaning an incident that would prompt an internal affairs investigation by state police, Zawisky said.

Luckenbaugh would later claim in Siennicks’s arrest warrant that Siennick ignored his verbal commands to get off the street, and that Siennick hit or threw something at his cruiser, the prosecutor said. The dash cam recording shows both of those accusations are deliberate lies, he said.

That recording also shows what happened after the troopers chased, Tased, pepper sprayed and handcuffed Siennick and sat him on the curb in front of their cruiser, Zawisky said. He said Siennick was irate, was calling the cops “fascists” and “pigs” and was spitting in reaction to the pepper spray.

When Siennick got some spittle on Luckenbaugh’s shoes, the trooper said, “Spit on this and he kicked him in the face,” Zawisky said. “Certainly, Trooper Luckenbaugh knew he couldn’t kick a handcuffed man in the head.”


These crimes are like rape

They are about power and control

And these sociopaths will lie, cheat and steal to cover their crimes up

See a cop coming your way?

Your life and freedom is in danger any time you have contact with them

“So, don’t give a cop the finger!”

That is a bullshit answer to cover for the actions of a scumbag abuser

It’s the same as “Don’t make me hit you, Darlene !”

There is no blaming the victim here

It is the fault solely of the psychopath with the handcuffs and gun

Now it is all about video

A few years ago and this degenerate would have walked

Good riddance to you and any more like you

Florida cop covered up for Buddy in murder plot against 79 year old

“SARASOTA, FL — As one former Sarasota County Sheriff’s deputy stands accused of trying to kill a 79-year-old woman, another deputy now faces charges for allegedly covering up evidence related to the crime. The arrest of Deputy Carson Lee Plank, 23, was announced by the sheriff’s office Thursday.

Plank, a one-year veteran of the agency, “lied to detectives during the criminal investigation surrounding ex-employee Frankie Bybee,” the sheriff’s office wrote in an email to media.

Carson, the sheriff’s office said, was one of the first deputies to arrive on the scene after the elderly woman reported the murder attempt on Jan. 12. When Carson was questioned by detectives about what she found at the scene, she told them she “didn’t see anything out of the ordinary at the victim’s home,” the email said. Carson also denied having contact with Bybee since he was placed on administrative leave Dec. 20.

The sheriff’s office said detectives interviewed Plank again on Jan. 19. She told a different story during that interview, the agency alleges.

“Plank admitted to locating and photographing with a cellular phone, a blood droplet with human hair, at the victim’s home on January 12,” the agency said in a media release. “Plank did not submit the photograph as evidence and following the January 12 incident, contacted Bybee to make him aware of the questions detectives asked her related to the attempted murder allegations. Phone records later obtained by detectives confirmed the communication between Plank and Bybee.”


Go figure……

Yet another bad apple

How long is that narrative going to hold up?

We should all feign shock that a cop lied on his report

Just like story after story after story

Sorry guys, no default hero status for you anymore

No more assumption of thruthfulness

The balance is tilting as more and more law abiding citizens see you for what you are

Welcome to the cell phone age and the age of the dash cam

And by the way

I am so glad that I can help

Worst of the Month — January

So for January we have selected the case of Philippe Holland, who was an innocent man shot by Philadelphia police.

According to news reports, here is what happened: Holland was a college student who worked part-time delivering take-out food.  Two  years ago, he was delivering a cheeseburger to a house when two officers in plain clothes responded to the area because of a report about gunshots.  Holland says he thought he was about to get robbed because the officers approached him without identifying themselves.  Frightened, Holland jumped in his car and tried to drive away quickly.  The police officers opened fire and Holland now has a permanent seizure disorder and has bullet fragments in his brain.

Last month, the city agreed to pay $4.4 million to settle a lawsuit brought by Holland, reportedly the largest settlement for a police shooting in the city’s history.

The officers involved in the shooting–Kevin Hanvey and Mitchell Farrell– claim that they feared for their lives and thus had to shoot.  They were not prosecuted.  Even after the passage of two years the department says their discipline is yet “to be determined.”  Hmm.

Sleeping on duty, sex and more. Florida heroes risk their lives everyday


“(CNN/WFTS/RNN) – It’s not cool for Pinellas County night-shift deputies to arm wrestle, put each other in choke holds, sleep and, you know, have sex on the job.

Sheriff Bob Gualtieri fired Deputy Scott Nichols and slapped several other deputies with lengthy suspensions after seeing videos and photos stored on Nichols’ phone.

“It was appalling and very disappointing,” Gualtieri said, adding that Nichols should not have let the others engage in the unprofessional behavior. “The sleeping is a big deal. They should not be sleeping. They’re getting paid to do the job, they need to do the job.”

He said internal affairs discovered the horseplay during a separate investigation into charges of sexual misconduct against Nichols.

Days before Gualtieri dropped the hammer, WFTS in Tampa reported that Nichols was demoted from corporal to deputy and given an 80-hour suspension after the investigation concluded that found the 32-year-old Nichols, who is married, was having sex with two female deputies who are also married.”

How about that?

These are the guys/gals that are enforcers of the law

Regular heroes right?

Just because they strap on a badge and a gun

This is the caliber of people that fill out that blue uniform

Hero is deed, not dress

No one gets default hero status anymore

No one is above the ordinary citizen because the state declares them an “Officer of the court”
