A DUI arrest on a 70 year old women turns bad when Kevin Jones (badge #149) of the Glynn County police is trying to cuff the woman. She was taken down, and did not have her arms to break her fall. The sound is the worst part. Both sides will need this footage, and it deserves to be put online for people to make their own judgement. Glynn County Police,157 Public Safety Blvd. Brunswick, GA
A grand jury declined to indict a North Carolina K-9 officer, clearing him of criminal charges after dash cam video showed him pushing his dog through a car window and into a driver's lap at the conclusion of a wild police chase.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal officials said 18 current and former Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies saw themselves as being "above the law" when they engaged in crimes that included beating inmates and jail visitors, falsifying reports, and trying to obstruct an FBI probe of the nation's largest jail system.
The investigation into corruption and civil rights abuses led to the arrests Monday of 16 of the 18 defendants. At least two no longer work for the department.
A fleeing "armed" robbery suspect and an accomplice killed by police Tuesday were not armed, even though police fired more than 100 rounds into their vehicle when they failed to surrender, Miami Herald news partner CBS4 reported.
Two officers wounded in the arm in the barrage of bullets that ensued were likely hit by “friendly fire” - rounds fired by fellow police officers, the station said.
Citing a police source, the station said the blue Volvo driven by Adrian Montesano, 27, and passenger Corsini Valdes, 52, was riddled with bullets from a dozen officers, but no guns were found in the vehicle of the suspects. Earlier in the night, Montesano had shot a Miami-Dade police officer in the stomach and stolen his cruiser as he fled from a hold up at a little Havana Walgreens, the station said.
Dallas Police are investigating after a witness to an officer-involved shooting said an officer shot a suspect who appeared to be holding both hands up.
If true, it would be the second case of Dallas Police shooting an unarmed person in the last few months.
Dallas Police were pursuing a hijacked vehicle after 3 p.m. on Monday Dec. 9 when the driver slowed down, opened the driver's side door and began to run away, despite officers shouting not to.
The incident began at a gas station on Bruton Road, when suspects reportedly threatened a man in a Malibu. That man took off running and told police those suspects fired at him several times. Police say no weapon was found at the scene where the vehicle ended up.
Officer Amy Wilburn, according to police, approached the car as it continued to move slowly forward. Wilburn came up to the car to stop it from moving when she saw Kelvion Walker, 19, in the front passenger seat.
Dallas police said Wilburn "perceived Walker to be an imminent threat, drew her weapon and discharged it once striking him."
Christopher Onesti admits his story is ridiculous.
The former New Jersey Transit police officer retired on disability five years ago at the age of 29 after accidentally firing a staple into the ring finger of his non-shooting hand during a mishap at a gun range in 2006. Part of the reason, Onesti said, was that doctors declared he would have trouble properly operating a firearm with his weak hand. Now he collects $45,936.24 a year tax-free from an accidental-disability pension for life.
But Onesti, now 34, hasn’t given up shooting. He said he visits ranges a few times a year — and understands why New Jersey taxpayers footing the bill for his pension would be annoyed by that.
"It absolutely looks absurd," Onesti, who now lives outside Philadelphia, said yesterday. "But it’s because the system is absurd."
The money will go to 11 police officers who said they were required to write a certain number of citations each shift. It raises the city's cost of ticket quota cases to $10 million.
The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday agreed to pay nearly $6 million to a group of police officers who accused their superiors of imposing a secret traffic ticket quota system on the Westside.
The settlement, approved unanimously, brings to more than $10 million the amount of taxpayer money spent on payouts and legal fees from the ticket quota cases. But that number could grow because one more officer's case is still pending.
