Edward Yealey was arrested on 10/8/2013 while standing outside of his place of employment. Initially the stop was for open carry, but when that did not work, Sergeant Kevin Bernard decided to charge Edward with "Carrying a bladed instrument on the Highway" and confiscate his pistol for "investigation" and try to revoke his carry permit.

I hope this helps educate all of us in one way or another, and make these overzealous police officers (that for either lack of knowledge, or power hunger), realize the Power is with the People. To THE PEOPLE, learn about your rights, don't fight it on the streets, fight it in the courts. KEEP RECORDING!!!......

NYPD cops from outside areas converge on minority neighborhoods throughout New York City daily looking for minorities to beat up and frame with felony charges such as assaulting an officer and resisting arrest to meet their illegal quotas.
Politicians have stripped us of our right to bear arms to make us dependent on this gang of uniformed thugs that offer protection in exchange for the authority to extort and kidnapped people at will.
My advice is everyone is to never get caught without your video camera because these sociopaths like to hurt people and lie to the judge that it was the other way around leaving you with the burden of proving your innocence. When it's your word against a NYPD cop's, guess who the judge is going to believe ?!
CINCINNATI — A Cincinnati police officer was arrested Monday on allegations of receiving nude photographs of a 17-year-old girl taking part in a department program for teens interested in becoming police officers, authorities said.
Officer Darrell Beavers was also charged with improperly using a city apartment and tampering with evidence after the teen's father complained about him last month.
A local man is hoping his dog can walk comfortably again after he claims an unrepentant Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputy shot her early Tuesday morning.
Chris Widmann, 29, came home from his shift waiting tables at Seasons 52 late Monday night. He said that at about 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, he let his dog out -- a 9-year-old boxer mix named Pepper -- and had a cigarette before calling it a night.
Then, the motion detector on the Jupiter Farms home he shares with two other people triggered a security light.
Widmann stood up, Pepper started barking and then two silhouetted figures became visible on the side of the home.
"Get your dog," one of the people said, and that's when Widmann realized it was an officer.
Widmann said he then told the deputies four times "She doesn't bite," adding that the dog never lunged toward them.
Nonetheless, a deputy fired two shots into Pepper's shoulder, Widmann said.
"What are you doing?" Widmann said he asked the deputy as he hustled over to comfort his injured pet, now left whimpering on the ground.
"You should have gotten your dog," the deputy told Widmann.
Because of the improper action of one of their own in arresting two officials working the St. Paul's-Mandeville game on Oct. 11, the Covington Police Department may no longer be allowed to serve as security for high school games officiated by the Greater New Orleans Football Officials Association.
And rightfully so. The officer, identified as Stephen Short, exceeded his authority when he arrested referee Jim Radcliff (pictured left) and head linesman Chris Gambino after denying their request that Short remove a group of Mandeville fans who were crowding the sidelines and impeding their movement.
At every level of competition, whether it be professional, collegiate or high school, where law enforcement officers are detailed, there is a distinct separation of power.
Officials are in charge of everything that pertains to the competition from the moment they step onto the field or court until the competition ends. Detailed policemen are responsible for crowd control and security, and that includes the security and protection of the officials.
If a situation arises where fans are crowding the sidelines and impeding the movement of the sideline official, as it did in the game between St. Paul's and Mandeville, and the officials ask an attending police officer for assistance in moving the spectators back, it is the duty of that cop do so and immediately.
Instead, this particular policeman used the power of his position to goad the officials into a confrontation that led to their arrests and subsequent fines for alleged "intimidation."
Say something again. Say something again, I dare you, I double dare you ************, say something one more Goddamn time!
WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Dramatic footage is released of a D.C. police officer assaulting an employee at a store in Northeast D.C. because the employee allegedly made a sarcastic remark at the officer.
Officer Clinton Turner, 42, pleaded guilty to simple assault earlier this week in connection with the 2011 incident.
Turner is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 1. The offence carries a maximum 180 day jail sentence.
It all took place at the downtown Locker Room store at Minnesota and Benning northeast on January 20, 2011.
Store clerk Daniel Fox and the officers, who were seated in the store, were friendly at first. Then something happened. Fox became angry, gestured at the officers, walked away and sat down near the register.
Turner followed him, and according to court documents, said, "don't let us get you locked up on your birthday."
Fox replied, "why."
"Say something else and will be locked up," the officer said.
Fox, sarcastically said "something else."
Turner grabbed the clerk and started beating him, authorities say and the video shows. Court records say he pulled out clumps of his hair and put him in a choke hold and arrested him for assault.
The problem for the officer is that when authorities viewed the surveillance video, they charged him with assault. And after the beating, the video shows Officer Turner lecturing Fox.
"He could have talked to him in a more calm manner. Violence should never have been used in that manner," says D.C. resident, De-An Owen.
Initially, Turner's partner was also charged but those charges were later dropped.
The defense attorney for Turner, James Rudasill, said: "It's very unusual for a police officer to be charged when there's not substantial injuries or injures requiring hospitalization."
But as U.S. Attorney Ron Machen insisted in an issued statement: "Police officers have a difficult job. When the few cross that line, they will be held accountable. As the judge found in this case, there was no justification for Officer Turner's actions."
A New York City man reportedly has filed suit in federal court after the NYPD arrested him for possession of methamphetamine that lab tests subsequently revealed to be Jolly Rancher candies.
According to court documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, Love Olatunjiojo of Brooklyn filed the civil rights action this week in connection with the summer arrest, naming not only the city, but also the three arresting police officers and the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office.
The suit reportedly stems from an incident that occurred in Brooklyn’s Coney Island neighborhood around 8:30 p.m. on June 20, or just after Olatunjiojo and two pals purchased candy, and specifically two red and four blue Jolly Ranchers, from a local candy shop.
Kenneth Smith, Olatunjiojo's attorney, has since told The Smoking Gun the candies were still in their wrappers when the officers stopped the trio – and searched them.
After finding the Jolly Ranchers, Olatunjiojo and one of his friends were arrested for drug possession, according to the lawsuit.
A woman calls 911 because her ex boyfriend is outside her home trying to break in. He had recently beaten her and put her in the hospital. The dispatcher basically says "can you call a friend, there aren't any police available".
A few hours later the woman was beaten and raped.
This is the transcribed 911 call. Long empty spaces have been removed in order to save time.
Surveillance video showing a Dallas police officer shooting a mentally ill man standing still about 20 feet away contradicts the assertion of an officer that the man threatened his safety by lunging at him with a knife.
Bobby Gerald Bennett remains hospitalized after being shot in the stomach Monday. The officer who shot him, Cardan Spencer, is on indefinite administrative leave pending a criminal investigation after a neighbor released surveillance video that captured the incident.
Bennett was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public servant, but Police Chief David Brown announced Friday that the charge would be dropped.
On Friday, September 27 a call was made from the Dollar General Store on South Shady Street in Mountain City. The call, made by an undisclosed Dollar General employee, was in reference to a squirrel that had made its way into the store and was causing quite a ruckus. Reportedly, after several attempts to apprehend the squirrely intruder, employees allegedly decided to seek the help of local animal control. When the call was received, Animal Control Officer Gary Phillips was unavailable so Town of Mountain City Police Officer Jody Putnam was dispatched.
According to an eyewitness at the scene of the incident, when Officer Putnam arrived, the squirrel was still inside the store and becoming increasingly hostile, presumably due to the stress of the incident. In order to apprehend the perpetrator, Officer Putnam made the decision to mace the squirrel. At the time Officer Putnam deployed the mace, Dollar General customers were allegedly still in the store but the smell and subsequent burn caused a mass evacuation. Unfortunately for Officer Putnam and the squirrel, the mace was not enough to apprehend the squirrel so Putnam reached for his next line of defense –his service weapon.
At this time, it is unknown how many shots Officer Putnam fired at the squirrel. One eyewitness said they didn’t hear a gunshot at all but rather heard the sudden “scream of the squirrel.” When the bystander reentered The Dollar Store, Officer Putnam had the squirrel pinned beneath his shoe and the animal was obviously dead. Another bystander said that Officer Putnam fired three shots. The Tomahawk was unable to reach Mountain City Police Chief Denver Church for a comment and an official report on this incident. Representatives from The Dollar Store also failed to respond after The Tomahawk made attempts to contact them for comment.
As a result of this incident, a unanimous decision was made by the City Council to terminate Officer Putnam’s employment. When reached for comment, Mountain City Mayor Lawrence Keeble said, “The decision the City Council made on this incident speaks for itself.”
It is not clear at this time whether or not any charges will be filed against Putnam. The Tomahawk will update our readers as the situation develops.
