Back in 2012 Richard Jouppi was booking 50-year old, wheelchair bound, Anthony Jon Jackson in the detoxification center. Jouppi was clearly causing pain and hurting Jackson, at which point Jackson reached up with his arm to defend himself, and told Jouppi, “you can’t do that.”
Jouppi then stooped to particularly low level and began to pummel Jackson to the point of knocking him backwards out of the wheelchair and then getting on top of his paralyzed body.
Jouppi, 36, faced fifth-degree assault and disorderly conduct charges after the aggressive incident. This past November, Jouppi was found not guilty on all charges.
theme: I really need to get a job where I can legally break the law by using a badge as an excuse for being above the law.
I like this new trick by police, since they cant get his information when he's on teh sidewalk and told to leave and he's "free to go", they pull him over and request it, since by law you then have to.
and was given a ticket for "careless driving" and he wrote down the electronic device was used to film while driving. Problem is, the law quoted and linked above is all about text messaging. AND the law requires them to pull you over for a primary traffic offense before they can cite you for the wireless devices violation.
The half-hour-long video shows Mandell gleefully discussing the finer points of how he and Engel allegedly planned to pose as cops to abduct Riverside businessman Steven Campbell, then bring him to their torture chamber and extort him into signing over 25 pieces of property he owned, before finally killing and dismembering him.
In the latest move by Waukesha PD to further separate Citizens from their basic human and constitutionally enumerated rights, Chief Russel Jack has declared that Waukesha cops may stop and detain community members simply for filming them. Despite numerous rulings from State, Federal, and even the US Supreme Court (by inaction,) Jack has declared that, at least in this city, The Courts’ determinations are irrelevant.
MOORE, Oklahoma - Three Moore Police officers were put on administrative leave while detective investigate an in-custody death from overnight. The family of the man who died said police beat him badly and they recorded it with a cell phone camera.
Nair Rodriguez and her daughter Lunahi told News 9 they got into an argument at the Warren Theater around midnight. Nair said she slapped her daughter then stormed away. Her husband, Luis, chased after her. That was when the family said officers confronted Luis Rodriguez and asked to see his identification.
According to Lunahi and Nair, he tried to bypass the officers to stop his wife from driving off because she was so angry. They said officers took him down and it escalated.
Lunahi Rodriguez said that five officers beat her father to death right in front of her, in the parking lot of the movie theater.
"When they flipped him over you could see all the blood on his face, it was, he was disfigured, you couldn't recognize him."
By the time it was all over, Nair Rodriguez said that she knew her husband was dead.
"I saw him. His [motionless] body when people carry it to the stretcher," she explained. "I knew that he was dead."
Nair says her husband was only trying to defuse the fight she was having with her daughter. She said when police asked her about it she told them what happened.
"I told them I hit her and he was just trying to reach me. Why didn't they arrest me?"
Lunahi added, "My mom was taking a video and asking, 'What are they doing this for? Why?' And they didn't give really an explanation."
Rodriguez told News 9 that police took her phone with the recording on it. Another family member provided News 9 with an audio recording she said was taken when that happened. The family hoped Luis would pull through, so they waited for news at the hospital.
"Two hours passed. They finally called her up to say, 'Oh you could see him,' but it turned out it was a lie. They moved his body elsewhere," said Lunahi.
The family told News 9 they would hire an attorney.

LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
The man who was shot and killed by officers near the Red Rock National Conservation Area Friday has been identified.
D’Andre Berghardt Jr., 20, of Los Angeles was shot by Bureau of Land Management rangers after he climbed into a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper’s SUV and tried to remove an AR-15 rifle from a locked compartment. At least one ranger fired through the car’s windshield.
It’s unclear if the trooper fired.
The two federal rangers and the state trooper were called to state Route 159 about noon Friday after cyclists near Calico Basin reported an altercation with a pedestrian, described as a black man in his 20s, according to Highway Patrol.
Trooper Loy Hixson said Friday the officers “felt their lives were in danger,” but he never specified a reason.
But the Review-Journal learned the officers fought with the man, who had been carrying a rolling suitcase, a backpack and a bedroll but was otherwise unarmed.
During the scuffle, the man gained access to the trooper’s SUV and attempted to pull the gun from a locked rack holding the officer’s rifle.
No officers were injured, but Berghardt died at the scene, Hixson said. Berghardt died from multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.
A New York City cop beat up and arrested a man for video recording him inside a subway station from 30 feet away Saturday night, walking up to him and getting in his face all while claiming the man was invading his personal space.
Officer Rojas, shield number 23404, then deleted the video, never mentioning the camera once in his arrest report, claiming the man had physically interfered with another arrest he was making.
But after spending 24 hours in jail, Shawn Randall Thomas managed to recover the deleted footage, proving that Rojas is not only a liar, but a bullying thug as well.
Thomas also obtained footage from another man who had recorded Rojas with his knees on Thomas’ back as he lay face down on the sidewalk just outside the sub station, seconds after Rojas had bashed his face into the pavement, busting his lip.
The injury was so bad that they had to transport him to the hospital twice during his 24-hour incarceration where doctors described him as a victim of assault.
Officers from Hawthorne Police Department in California twice Tasered a man who was trying to sign to them that he was deaf, a lawsuit allegees.
The officers then beat the deaf man until he was unconscious and then charged him with assault.
A federal complaint has since been filed against the police department for violating Jonathan Meister’s rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act. According to the complaint, Miester says the cops ”shot Taser darts into Mr. Meister, administered a number of painful electric shocks, struck him with fists and feet, and forcibly took him to the ground.”
LAGO VISTA, Texas (KXAN) — A Lago Vista police detective faces assault charges after a communications operator accused him of kicking him the back and bullying him in the communications room, according to a police report.
