Hawaii cops have reached an agreement with state legislators that will limit the exemption that allows them to have sex with prostitutes. Police originally insisted on an open-ended license to fornicate, but now they are willing to settle for petting, handjobs, ********, and other activities that fall short of penetration.
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire police officer has been sentenced to one year in jail for leaving the scene after he struck two teens with his unmarked police car.
Former Manchester sergeant Stephen Coco Coco had been charged with conduct after an accident. Prosecutors said he was off-duty on March 22, 2013, when he struck 18-year-old Dean Drukker and 17-year-old Noah Hickman from behind.
Coco told investigators he hadn’t left home that night, but police said his SUV had fresh front-end damage.
Drukker suffered bleeding on the brain and a separated shoulder. Hickman suffered a broken right elbow and back injuries.
Someone comments about it being a cheap board.
I have seen cop apologists - and idiots just making excuse in general - to make as if it is okay to destroy poor peoples stuff.
Is like, - cops raid homeless and destroy all their gear and bedding and it be okay to trash all they own because it is just cheap junk.
Elect me emperor and I would have some cops homeowners insurance canceled then bring in the bulldozer.
In some conditions I would consider that all someone owns to be every bit as valuable as all someone else owns, be it sleeping bag vs $2000 bedroom set. = So take that cops personal car to the crusher.
A local man was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in federal prison for receiving and distributing child pornography plus being in possession of an unregistered firearm. This sentence resulted from an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in coordination with Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the Sabinal, Texas, Police Department.
Jason Lee Villasana, 37, of Del Rio, Texas, was sentenced to 180 months imprisonment for receiving and distributing child pornography, and possessing an unregistered firearm. The judge also ordered Villasana to serve a 10-year term of supervised release. Villasana pleaded guilty to the charges Aug. 21, 2013.
Village of New Miami police officers haven’t been able to patrol the streets because the municipality was dropped from its insurance plan, the police chief confirmed Thursday.
The entire village was dropped from the plan this month, and village administrators have directed all employees to avoid using village-owned vehicles, including fire trucks and police cruisers, at work, New Miami Police Chief Kenneth Cheek said in an interview with the Journal-News.
Cheek said the village is currently operating under a self-insurance plan. He was advised by village officials to operate his police department under a “don’t drive unless you have to” policy since the village became self-insured earlier this month.
New Miami used the Ohio Government Risk Management Plan, a state insurance plan that more than 700 local governments belong to, for property, liability, law enforcement, automobile and bond coverage up until earlier this month.
ust last month a Butler County Common Pleas judge ordered the village to stop the use of its controversial speed cameras. The village has collected more than $1 million in revenue since officials installed the cameras 16 months ago, but the judge hasn’t ruled if the village will have to repay the money to drivers who were cited.
After being apprehended by police officers on Thursday night, Jesse Sawyer Jr. is back on the loose in the state of Florida.
A federal arrest warrant was issued for Sawyer, 25, who is accused of using his cell phone to take so-called "selfies" of himself sexually abusing several children. At least one victim was under the age of five.
Troy police said they received a call Thursday at around 10:30 p.m., with the caller reporting they knew where Sawyer was. The caller noticed he had signed himself into the Calvary Chapel mission in St. Petersburg, using his real name.
He was able to identify the name from Facebook posts, they then called Troy Police.
Troy Police contacted Pinellas Police notifying them of Sawyer's whereabouts. Pinellas then found Sawyer, and detained him. That's where the details become uncertain. Pinellas Park PD says they requested electronic confirmation of the warrant but did not receive the confirmation from the Troy Police Department or FBI for roughly an hour, so they released Sawyer because they "knew where he was."
Shortly after releasing Sawyer, Pinellas Police Department received a call from FBI confirming the warrant.
Troy Police say was faxed to Pinellas Park within an extremely reasonable period of time. It does appear, however, that their decision to release the defendant was premature.
Pinellas Police department returned to where they left Sawyer, and were unable to find him. Helicopter and K-9 units were brought in to search the area for several hours. All in the area have been notified to be on the lookout for Sawyer.
During a Monday night emergency, a police officer handcuffed and detained a volunteer firefighter after the firefighter refused to move his fire truck.
The emergency call was made around 10 p.m. in the 100 block of Cherry Street. The incident was caught on surveillance camera at the Housing Authority in New Roads.
Video footage reveals that the firefighter arrived on the scene first, and turned on his emergency lights after he parked his fire truck. Paramedics arrived seconds later.
Onlooker Joyce Harris, who watched the scene unfold from a neighbor’s house, recalls that when a New Roads police officer arrived on the scene, he immediately demanded that the firefighter move his truck from the street. When the firefighter refused to comply, the officer placed him in handcuffs and detained him in the back of a police car for nearly 15 minutes.
“I think what his problem was, was an ego thing,” Harris said of the police officer.
“They are supposed to protect and serve life, and here they are arresting the people that’s trying to help,” she continued.
One paramedic, who could not go on camera, deemed the officer’s actions one of the most unprofessional things he’s witnessed throughout the entirety of his career.
A 29-year-old former Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy pleaded no contest on March 13 to rape and bribery charges for a pair of incidents that occurred four years ago, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has announced.
The defendant, Jose Rigoberto Sanchez, entered a plea to one count each of rape under color of authority and soliciting a bribe. He was ordered to return to Department 31 in the Foltz Criminal Justice Center on April 4 when he will be sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison. He also must register as a sex offender.
Deputy District Attorney Rosa Alarcon, of the Justice System Integrity Division, said Sanchez was on duty on Sept. 22, 2010 when he pulled over a 24-year-old female driver who had an outstanding warrant. Sanchez offered not to arrest the woman if she had sex with him. He then drove the victim into the desert, where he raped her, the prosecutor said.
Two nights later, he pulled over a 36-year-old woman for investigation of DUI and solicited a bribe in the form of sexual activity. The case was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau.
An east El Paso family said an officer from the El Paso Police Department shot their pit bull when responding to their home last week.
Owner Deborah Hawthorne said she doesn't understand why an officer would shoot at her dog, Gracie, because she was already missing a leg after being hit by a car. Gracie did survive the shooting.
"She's handicapped. She's not a threat. She can't charge really. She never has charged," Hawthorne said.
Hawthorne said this all started when her husband got into an argument with someone else earlier that night. Because she said her husband was holding a knife, that person reported it to the police.
She said she is also upset the shooting happened in front of her 11-year-old daughter.
"When [the police officer] discharged that weapon, it ricochet off the concrete and the house.
It almost went through my daughter's legs. It was right there at the door so she could have been hit," Hawthorne said. Hawthorne said two officers responded to her home, and one fired at Gracie.
The shot hit her in her only back paw. "I saw the officer in the yard. He was off in an angle to the house in the shadows.
I saw a flash and the smoke come up and that's when I saw Gracie crawling toward me," Hawthorne said. She also said the officers did not identify themselves.
"I asked them at least five times what their names were and what their badge numbers were. They did not talk to me. They refused to tell me anything about my husband," Hawthorne said.
The El Paso Police Department said it won't comment on the case now because it's still under investigation.
"As in all cases where an El Paso police officer discharges their weapon, these cases are thoroughly investigated by the Department’s Shooting Review Team. This case is assigned to the Internal Affairs Division," El Paso Police Department spokesman Detective Darrel Petry said in a statement.
Hawthorne said she also plans to file charges against the Police Department.
Under an obscure Pennsylvania law, Coble was charged with a summary offense for not answering initial questions posed by the game warden, and then acknowledging his presence at the deer killing scene.
Constitution Daily found the actual statute online in the state’s Game and Wildlife code, under “Unlawful activities” related to the “Destruction for Agricultural Protection” of deer and other wildlife.
“It is unlawful for any person while acting under the provisions of this subchapter to … Refuse to answer, without evasion, upon request of any representative of the commission, any pertinent question pertaining to the killing or wounding of any game or wildlife killed or wounded, or the disposition of the entire carcass or any part thereof.”
Coble hired an attorney to fight the charge, believing he was not compelled to answer questions initially under his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
Under the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Fifth Amendment in the Miranda case, information willfully given to an investigator before someone is taken into custody—and read their Miranda rights—can be used in a court of law, which includes interviews where a person is free to leave the premises and conversations at the scene of an alleged crime.
But a suspect can refuse to answer questions at any time in the investigative process. The Supreme Court also held in June 2013 that such silence can be used as evidence in court in its Salinas v. Texas ruling.
Coble’s attorney, Donald Zagurskie, appealed the case on constitutional grounds.
“There’s no exception for the Game Commission under our Constitution to give them any greater police powers or less police powers than officer Joe Smith, walking the beat,” Zagurskie told the AP. “It’s so odd that that persists out there, and I think they believe that.”
Zagurskie’s argument was that the statute forced Coble to answer questions, or face punishment for an “unlawful” act.
The Perry County District Attorney then sided with Coble, and not the Game Commission, and the state attorney general and the Game Commission didn’t contest the appeal, which went in favor of Coble last week.
When asked why he fought the fine, Coble had a simple answer: “ It’s an infringement on my constitutional right. I mean, a whole lot of my constitutional rights.”
Police state controlled news?
This evening on CBS local news a very censored version of the above was shown and no mention about fellow being tangled in seat belt or claims about the knife being in the PU bed and not in his hand.
It is old news and always took for granted the cop would get off.
Pissed me off at another example of the news ain't news but part of the propaganda machine.
