After eight minutes of thirty two minute video it is of empty back seat.
It seems unclear to me in these videos but I have seen what appears that some cops were well practiced in manipulating cuffs to make pain or to make it impossible to comply while they shout "Stop resisting".
Look at those disgusting thugs. By thugs I mean the boys in blue. Notice how they become even more violent in a group, when that mob mentality sets in. I hope that woman is right and he gets paid. And I also hope all of the police involved lose their jobs.
The Coeur d'Alene Police Department on Wednesday released this video recorded on Aug. 25 by the body camera of Coeur d'Alene police officer Spencer Mortensen who fatally shot Eric Johnston during an incident at a Coeur d'Alene residence.
WARNING: The final few moments of this video show Eric Johnston being shot and are extremely graphic. Viewers are warned that if they choose to watch this video, what they see and hear may be deeply disturbing.
A Bonner County prosecutor recently determined Mortensen acted "within the parameters" of Idaho state laws. The video was provided by the Coeur d'Alene Police Department.
A 19-year-old Missouri woman who called the police during a medical emergency now alleges that one of the responding officers slammed her face into the floor–leaving her with bruises and persistent headaches — and then charged her with assault and resisting arrest.
Kayla Conway called the Pevely, Missouri police department last week out of concern for the safety of her boyfriend, who had overdosed on anxiety medication. The couple recently lost a baby when Conway miscarried six months into her pregnancy, and she was on edge about her boyfriend’s health.
Police put the boyfriend in an ambulance, but an officer refused to let Conway ride along with him. His refusal soon became violent, according to Conway...
Manning admits that one of his teammates may have said something smart to the cop they had noticed staring them down. So when the cop approached, they ran. Scared, Manning ran a little, too. But then he stopped.
"I didn't do anything wrong," Manning said.
Exactly what happened is now the subject of an Internal Affairs investigation.
Police records state that Manning, who is black, was stopped by Officer Thomas Purcell, who is white, after the 11-year veteran observed a group of males covering their faces with ski masks and running. The students say there were no ski masks, just the scarves given to them by Joyner, the founder of Mathematics, Civics & Sciences Charter School.
The report goes on to say that Manning began fighting with the officer, striking him three times and ripping off his radio. He was still fighting, the police report says, when the officer called for assistance. "No injuries sustained to police," the report states.
Manning says he was roughed up, placed in handcuffs that the officer hit him with and that during a pat-down, a female officer pulled his genitals so hard one of his ********* ruptured.
"She patted me down and then she touched my butt and then my private parts," he said. "And then she grabbed and squeezed and pulled my private parts and I felt something pop."
Police say Manning didn't complain of any pain while he was in custody, charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and reckless endangerment. But Manning underwent emergency surgery the next day at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. His mother, Ikea Coney, said doctors told her that her son's injury may prevent him from fathering children...
DURHAM, N.C. — Police in North Carolina say all evidence collected during their investigation into the shooting death of a handcuffed teenager indicates he killed himself with a concealed large-caliber pistol that a rookie officer failed to detect when he frisked him.
Durham police on Friday presented preliminary findings of an internal investigation into the shooting death of 17-year-old Jesus Huerta, who died Nov. 19 in the back of a squad car as it was pulling into the parking lot at police headquarters.
A medical examiner's report released separately on Friday said Huerta died from a close-range gunshot to the face...
...As baby-boomers in departments look toward retirement, issues surrounding differences among officers who grew up as Generation X-ers or Millennials appear to be surfacing. Veteran SWAT officers within the group of attendees say that too many new recruits look at SWAT as a “stepping stone” or “résumé builder” to other areas of law enforcement, so finding new recruits who are willing to stay on SWAT teams for the long haul is becoming more difficult.
“Instead of having 20 people staying there 20 years, you have people stay there five to seven years,” said Captain Ed Allen, NTOA Eastern Region Director and Instructor.
Additionally, new recruits are likely to be college graduates with a different mindset than their predecessors of 20 to 45 years ago. Attendees in the class gave their views on recruits in their early 20s who enter police departments with college degrees.
“What’s gone is police departments looking for the defenseman on the hockey team – the rough guy who can prepare to visit violence [on] a bad guy who would do us harm... [replaced by] the university graduate and all who comes with his entitled attitude,” said one officer.
Another claimed, “These news guys... come in that say, ‘I’m in here for just three to five years,’ and they check the box and they go on to do something else.”
“We got lawyers. We got Ph.Ds. We got everything but police officers. They can’t clear a corner. You tell them, 'Get out of the squad car and go clear the corner;' but they can recite to you a formula – you know, Starling’s law for cardiac help or something,” said one attendee.
He added, “But I think the worse thing we did was that we focused so much on law enforcement getting college degrees to move up that the type-A personalities out there in the streets kicking people’s asses and locking people up – well, they had to go to court. They didn’t have a lot of time to work on their master's.”...
After Snider pulled onto I-10, he said a police car with flashing lights and sirens pulled behind him.
"I put my hazards on to let him know, 'Hey, I see you,'" said Snider. "This is a really bad part of I-10 to be pulled over on, so I was trying to find a safe place to pull over."
Snider said he was shocked by what the police officer did next.
"He's screaming. He's yelling. He's telling me to get out of the car. He's telling me to put my hands on the hood," said Snider.
Snider said the officer pulled him out of the car, handcuffed him and put him in the back of a police car, as ten more police cars were also pulling up.
"They're like, 'We saw you downtown. We saw what you did,'" said Snider. "I was like, 'Are you kidding me? I gave a homeless man 75 cents.'"
Snider said the officer accused him of giving the man drugs. The officer asked to search Snider's car and Snider said he agreed.
The officer brought in drug sniffing dogs. Snider said he sat handcuffed for an hour until an officer told him their search turned up no drugs.
"He said everything was a misunderstanding and that I was free to go," said Snider.
Snider said the officers were laughing. Snider said he found nothing funny about the officers' actions or the damage they caused to his car during the search. Snider filed a complaint with the police Internal Affairs Department.
A woman won a $150,000 settlement from city officials in Lynnwood, Washington for being forced to say she lied about being raped, KIRO-TV reported on Wednesday.
The woman, identified as “D.M.” in court documents to protect her privacy, was 18 at the time of the August 2008 attack and living in transitional housing through Cocoon House, a non-profit program serving at-risk youth. A man later identified as Marc O’Leary entered her apartment and, according to court documents, tied her wrists with shoe string, gagged her with a pair of underwear and threatened her with a butcher knife, on top of blindfolding, photographing, and raping her.
“The detectives took pictures of the binding marks,” one of the woman’s attorneys, Yvonne Ward, told KIRO. “They themselves took those pictures. The detectives saw the scene.”
However, documents also showed that one detective, Jerry Rittgarn, and local police Sergeant Jeff Mason came to believe allegations by D.M.’s stepmother, a friend, and an anonymous caller that she made up her story, despite a local hospital noting that she suffered signs of rape trauma.
The victim’s attorneys argued that police charged her with falsely reporting the rape and fined her $500 when she attempted to re-establish her complaint. Police then told Cocoon House they thought she was lying, leading to the program forcing her into a counselling program where she had to tell other participants that she lied about the attack under threat of eviction. Cocoon House reached a separate settlement with D.M. for an undisclosed amount last month.
"I'm going to change the world one snuggle at a time," declares Hannah Rode, manager of the Snuggle House in Madison, Wisconsin. Hannah, and her stable of professional snugglers (including the lone man Lonnie!) were all set to open their doors and their arms to those in need of non-sexual stress relief. However, local officials didn't buy the non-sexual part. They figured the Snuggle House to be a front for prostitution.
"No offense to men, but I don't know any man who wants to just snuggle," says assistant city attorney Jennifer Zilavy. The Madison Police Department spoke openly about busting the new business with sting operations, boasting that officers make frequent use of stings to rack up arrest stats for everything from drugs to alcohol and sex-related offenses. You may even find undercover officers at local restaurants and dance clubs trying to bait suckers into swiping unattended smartphones.
"That's just what we do, for drugs, bars, anywhere we think it's beneficial," police Lt. David McCaw said. "We do it all the time. You can't expect that's not going to happen to you."
The Snuggle House ended up buckling under city harassment and shutting down before dishing out any snuggles. But c'mon, don't cops have better things to do?!
Turns out the cuddly controversy erupted around the same time the state's attorney general released a report finding that human trafficking is on the rise in the Badger State, and is especially common in cities. Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen joined 46 other attorneys general to call on the federal government to devote more resources to combating this crime that often involves forced sex, and where victims are often children as well as adults.
But why wait on the feds? Maybe Madison's sting-happy cops could devote more resources to fighting human trafficking, and lay off the non-violent adults engaging in consensual acts.
FRISCO, Texas — Ron Martin argues he has a First Amendment right to warn drivers of a police speed trap in his community after officers arrested him for violating the city’s sign ordinance.
Officers handcuffed Martin along Eldorado Parkway near Preston Road last October for holding a sign that alerted drivers to a speed trap nearby.
"I observed a couple cars drive by traveling westbound waving at us,” the police officer wrote in Martin’s arrest report. “Mr. Martin was observed standing in the center median of the six-lane divided roadway ... holding a sign in his right hand up over his shoulders that read 'Police Ahead.'"
When two officers left the enforcement area and drove over to Martin, he pulled out his mobile phone and used it to record his own arrest...

Twenty Riverside residents with alleged ties to the local street gang and suspected of illegally possessing guns and drugs were arrested during a two-day sweep January 8th and 9th 2014.
A total of 22 state search warrants and 21 probation and parole searches were handled by some 650 officers representing 34 agencies, including Apache helicopters, armored cars, the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation, Corona police, the Riverside County Gang Task Force, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, took part in the raids.
“Operation Rain Cross” was conducted by Riverside police, in hopes of gathering evidence connected with four unsolved homicides but “all we found was drugs”, according to Sgt. Dan Russell.
Officers seized 40 baseball caps, which police believe the gang “East Side Riva”, or ESR, uses to signify its name, as well as some drugs.
One resident told GS he was getting ready for work one minute and the next all hell’s breaking loose and someone’s yelling “get down on the f@*king ground”, then they shot my dog, why’d he shoot my dog?
Sgt. Dan Russell said suspects were arrested for possession of firearms, ammunition, controlled substances and baseball caps that might be gang related.
why'd they shoot your dog? why did Tom Hogan cut off the horse's head?
