the problem with policing is that citizens can't fine the police.

Review Board Notes Rise in New York Police Officers’ False Statements

Quote:
An officer drew his weapon on a bystander holding a cellphone but denied using a racial obscenity. In another case, an officer told investigators that he had not shoved a man in handcuffs, but that the man tripped.

In another encounter, an officer who was asked for his name so the person he had stopped could file a complaint said, “Go ahead,” and then gave the name Smith.

When presented with audio, the officer explained away the apparent proof of his misconduct. “Good night, Mr. Smith,” is what the officer said the recording captured. Neither the officer nor the person in the car had that last name.

The encounters were among about two dozen documented in a new report released on Thursday in which investigators from the Civilian Complaint Review Board, an independent oversight agency for the New York City police, discovered apparently false official statements by officers.

False or misleading statements by officers gained renewed attention last month after video of a fatal police shooting in North Charleston, S.C., showed that the officer involved had lied in his initial account of what prompted him to shoot the man.

the problem with policing is the citizens in white hoods.

Hoods and Badges: 2006 FBI Report Warned Of White Supremacists Infiltrating America?s Police Force | If You Only News

Quote:
In October of 2006, the FBI published a report called “White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement.” The unclassified report, while still heavily censored, warns that white supremacist leaders have “historically shown an interest in infiltrating law enforcement communities or recruiting law enforcement personnel.”

White supremacist presence among law enforcement personnel is also of concern due to the access they may possess to restricted areas vulnerable to sabotage and to elected officials or protected persons,” the report reads, adding that “intelligence acquired through the successful infiltration of law enforcement by one white supremacist group can benefit other groups” because of “multiple allegiances.

According to “The Grio,” a number of key events foreshadowed the report:

A federal court found that members of a Los Angeles sheriffs department formed a Neo **** gang and habitually terrorized the black community. Later, the Chicago police department fired Jon Burge, a detective with reputed ties to the Ku Klux Klan, after discovering he tortured over 100 black male suspects. Thereafter, the Mayor of Cleveland discovered that many of the city police locker rooms were infested with “White Power” graffiti. Years later, a Texas sheriff department discovered that two of its deputies were recruiters for the Klan.

The FBI report is especially prophetic; from 2008 to 2014, the number of white supremacists in the United States increased exponentially — from 149 groups to nearly 1,000 — and they don’t show any sign of slowing down.

the problem with policing is the citizens giving police all their hard earned money.

CA Cities Making Millions Seizing Property, Money

Quote:
California has safeguards in place to protect innocent people from the harmful practices of civil asset forfeiture. However, a new report from the Drug Policy Alliance found that such measures haven’t stopped law enforcement agencies from using federal forfeiture laws to circumvent state policies.

The Drug Policy Alliance, an organization focused on drug policy reforms, examined the cities that lead California in seizures per capita. The cities—Baldwin Park, Beverly Hills, Gardena, Irwindale, La Verne, Pomona, South Gate, Vernon and West Covina—are all located around Los Angeles County and collected more than $43 million in revenue from forfeitures between 2006 and 2013.

“We use federal forfeiture,” Baldwin Park Police Capt. David Reynoso told the Drug Policy Alliance. “It’s just more beneficial to us.”

Baldwin Park, with a population of 75,390, collected $4.9 million in federal forfeiture revenue from 2006 to 2013 and participated in 565 seizures from 2008 to 2013.

The city of Irwindale, meanwhile, saw $802,800 in revenue from the Justice Department’s forfeiture program and has a population of 1,422.

the problem with policing it the citizens giving away all their hard earned cash.

This Man Was Found Innocent, But the Cops Kept His $30,000 Anyway - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Quote:
Robert Pardee's vehicle was stopped by an Iowa state trooper over a busted taillight. After a search turned up trace amounts of marijuana, Pardee was charged with possession. A criminal court eventually found him innocent of any wrongdoing. So why do the police get to keep the $30,100 they confiscated from him?

The answer is civil forfeiture, of course. Even though a criminal court acquitted Pardee, a civil court ruled—under a much lower burden of proof—that it was more likely than not he had acquired the cash through illegal means.

Obama limits military-style weapons for police forces - CNNPolitics.com

Quote:
The Obama administration plans to prohibit federal agencies from providing to local cops certain kinds of military equipment such as grenade launchers, high-caliber weapons and bayonets, in the wake of controversy over a "militarized" police response to unrest last summer in Ferguson, Missouri.

The new prohibitions are part of an executive order President Barack Obama issued for federal agencies to review the types of equipment they provide to local and state police.

Former deputy stole guns from evidence to sell

Quote:
A former Lake County deputy was convicted of stealing guns out of evidence and selling them. One of the guns he unlawfully bought from a crime witness,

William Berry was convicted Thursday of embezzlement and official misconduct. Prosecutors say Berry stole four firearms from an evidence room inside the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

Berry sold three rifles and a .38 Colt semi-automatic handgun, which had been seized as evidence during an unrelated domestic violence investigation he had responded to.

Berry took the guns from the evidence room and convinced the wife of the domestic violence suspect into transferring ownership to him for $500. Berry told the victim the transfer was legal, because he was a "representative of the law."

The investigation began last summer after a buyer complained that that he didn't receive the gun he paid for from Berry. All four weapons were recovered and returned to the sheriff's office.

"I'm embarrassed that this happened within my office," Lake County Sheriff Rod Fenske said in July.

Berry faces up to three years in prison. He will be sentenced July 10.

DA Authorizes Firearm Count Against OCPD Sergeant - News9.com - Oklahoma City, OK - News, Weather, Video and Sports |

Quote:
The Oklahoma County District Attorney's Office authorized one count of Pointing a Firearm at Another to be filed against Sgt. Cecil D. Moss, a 12-year veteran of the Oklahoma City Police Department (OCPD), Friday.

The 52-year-old was placed on administrative leave after the department initiated a criminal investigation into a domestic altercation that occurred in northwest Oklahoma City on April 4.

According to the police report, Moss said he pointed a gun at a vehicle on N. Miller Boulevard, that was moving erratically toward him, but did not fire because there was a baby in the vehicle. He was not on duty at the time, nor was he in uniform, according to OCPD.

Moss will continue to be on paid administrative leave as the internal investigation continues, according to OCPD.

Memphis Police Officer charged with domestic assault | WREG.com

Quote:
A Memphis Police Officer is behind bars after being accused of attacking his girlfriend.

Brian Cofer was arrested on domestic assault charges Saturday morning.

Deputies arrived at the victim’s house and found the living room in what they describe as “extreme disarray”.

They say the victim was hiding in a closet while Cofer was passed out, on the back porch, both with visible injuries.

The woman told investigators they had just arrived home from a bar when Cofer suddenly became violent.

Deputies woke Cofer up, and he told them he’d been drinking.

He also claimed he couldn’t remember what happened at the house.

Brian Cofer is expected to be in court on Monday.

the problem with policing is the citizens trying to enjoy a football game with their children.


Quote:
It was the game where Benfica claimed the Portuguese Championship (away). Benfica supporters where held for 40mn after the match ended, due to safety concerns. This family was allowed to leave the stadium because the small kid was feeling sick. The policemen on the stadium doors ALLOWED them to leave. On the outside, while giving the kid water, they were approached by the police chief and this happened. Later, after the images became public, the police chief claimed he was spat on by the father somewhere on the video. The father already denied this in court and to the media. Witnesses also denied any spitting happening. The incident is being investigated and the police chief is under disciplinary proceedings and being fired is not unlikely.

Officer who beat man at bus stop pleads guilty, sentenced to six months jail - Baltimore Sun

Quote:
Baltimore Police Officer Vincent E. Cosom, who was caught on city surveillance footage beating a man at a North Avenue bus stop, pleaded guilty to assault Friday and was sentenced to six months in jail.

Shaun Owens, Cosom's attorney, said his client had an "unblemished record" before the incident and was a veteran police officer.

"This was quite simply a lapse in judgment," Owens said after the plea.

The sentence, which includes another four and half years suspended time, was handed down as part of an agreement with prosecutors.

Trial begins for undercover NYPD detective in biker melee

Quote:
An SUV driver who was beaten bloody by a group of angry motorcyclists after he'd run a biker over wept as he testified Monday that he was scared to death during the melee.

"Complete fear. For my life, for my wife's, for my daughter's," Alexian Lien told a judge, speaking at length for the first time publicly about the September 2013 fracas.

Lien was testifying at the trial of undercover detective Wojciech Braszczok and co-defendant Robert Sims, who are charged with assault and other crimes following a motorcycle rally that devolved into pandemonium and became a highway horror story to millions who saw a helmet-camera video posted online.

Braszczok, who was off duty when he participated in the rally gone wrong, was accused by Assistant District Attorney Joshua Steinglass of failing to act as a police officer. Braszczok reached into a broken window on the SUV, then stood by and eventually drove off as others pulled Lien from the car and attacked him, prosecutors said.

"Not only did he fail to protect and serve, he cast his lot in with the assailants," Steinglass said.

Defense attorney John Arlia said Braszczok was acting as a cop afraid of blowing his deep cover. He denied Braszczok took part in any assault. Braszczok should have told his colleagues that he'd seen the assault, but he was afraid of losing his job, Arlia said.

the problem with policing is the citizens not giving the officer RAS.

W.D.Tex. credits motorist and passenger over officer and finds no reasonable suspicion |

Quote:
...

Instead, the Court finds it more likely that Officer Granados and Officer Ibarra stopped the SUV on September 25, 2014, solely based on their desire to further their ongoing narcotics investigation.7 This conclusion is consistent with the fact that on all four occasions that the TAC officers detained Adrienna under the guise of a traffic stop, they never once issued her a single citation. See id. at 100, 108.

...

In addition to the suspicious circumstances surrounding the September 25, 2014, stop, the Court also notes that it found Officer Granados’s testimony to be evasive on several material issues. For example, while Officer Granados claimed that he and Officer Ibarra were merely conducting routine traffic enforcement on September 25, 2014, id. at 8, 58, the TAC unit to which he and Officer Ibarra belong is responsible for investigating major crimes in the El Paso area, id. at 29, 56, not “cruising around, checking to see if everybody [was obeying] the traffic laws.” Id. at 8. Moreover, while Officer Granados initially represented that he did not know who Defendant was until he saw the Texarkana Home listed on her insurance information, see id. at 13-14, he later testified on cross examination that narcotics detectives told him several days prior to the traffic stop that Defendant “was a target of a narcotics investigation.” Id. at 37. Thus, at bottom, Officer Granados’s testimony is that two TAC officers who were conducting routine “traffic enforcement” because they “didn’t have any cases that particular week,” id. at 58, randomly stopped a vehicle whose passenger happened to be the primary target of an EPPD narcotics investigation, and whose driver they were already familiar with because they had stopped her two or three times previously that same week, including “maybe two or three nights before” September 25, 2014. Id. at 30-33. In short, the Court is of the opinion that this testimony is disingenuous at best. And, although it is not illegal to conduct a pretextual traffic stop, see Whren, 517 U.S. at 813, Officer Granados’s lack of candor undermines the veracity of his testimony as a whole, including his representations that Adrienna was speeding and using her cell phone at the time of the stop.8 See Turner, 628 F.2d at 465.

Finally, the fact that Adrienna had outstanding traffic warrants does not automatically render the traffic stop constitutional. While police officers may undoubtedly stop a vehicle based on their reasonable suspicion that the driver has outstanding traffic warrants, see, e.g., United States v. Wheeler, 145 F. App’x 894, 895 (5th Cir. 2005), here, Officer Granados himself testified that the only justifications for the stop were speeding and the driver’s illegal use of a cell phone. See Tr. 8-9, 29-30, 53. Indeed, according to Officer Granados, he and his partner did not recognize Adrienna as the driver of the SUV until after they had already initiated the traffic stop and exited their police cruiser. See id. at 30. As a result, Adrienna’s outstanding traffic warrants could not serve as an independent justification for the September 25, 2014, stop.

In sum, because the Court credits Adrienna’s testimony that she was neither speeding nor talking on her cell phone at the time of the stop, see Turner, 628 F.2d at 465, and because the officers claim not to have recognized Adrienna as the driver of the SUV until after they stopped the vehicle, the Court finds that the officers lacked an objectively reasonable basis to stop the SUV on September 25, 2014. See Cole, 444 F.3d at 689. Without an objectively reasonable basis to initiate the traffic stop, Defendant’s detention was unlawful.

the problem with policing is the citizens don't volutarily donate.

Richland's $4.1 million police station funded by civil forfeiture - Watchdog.org

Quote:
The Mississippi city of Richland has a new $4.1 million police station, a top-level training center and a fleet of black-and-white Dodge Charger police cars.

All of it was paid for through civil forfeitures of property and cash seized during traffic stops of what police say were suspected drug runners on Interstate 20.

Civil libertarians question the constitutionality of civil forfeiture, which has become a key part of revenue for state and local law enforcement agencies nationwide. Under the laws of many states, citizens can be deprived of their property or even cash if police merely suspect the owners to be involved in criminal activity.

Mayor Mark Scarborough and police chief WR “Russel” James of Richland — population 7,033 and located south of Jackson on I-20 in Rankin County — say they’re not only giving city taxpayers a bargain, but they’re also helping do their part to stem the heavy drug trade that travels between Texas and Atlanta on I-20, which eventually trickles down to smaller cities like theirs.

Lee McGrath, legislative counsel for the libertarian Institute for Justice, said the tide is turning on civil forfeiture in the nation.

Both Montana and New Mexico have reformed their civil forfeiture systems, and former Attorney General Eric Holder announced a number of changes in civil forfeiture at the federal level.
