you realize that's the conclusion of teh video you just posted yesterday, in post #1900, right?
Yes. I believe the video was even posted some time ago. ??
What I said yesterday was most about the news report kissing up (apologist) to authorities. - It was misrepresentation - lying about history - etc ....
That more recent one of shooting the homeless guy on the hillside is one that I have not settled down to one way to express my outrage as well.
They seemed to have talked him down and he was collecting his stuff to come down then an ******* attacks with the flash-bang - fellow has knives but is no way threat - they go ahead and murder him as he turns his back then add abomination to injury when he is down.
Maybe they should not put cowards into jobs that is less dangerous than farming.
Folks that see a lot of these videos that are posted my wonder less of why some folks run from police even when they haven't done anything. Lot of folks are learning that compliance is useless when cops is just *** kicking looking for a place to happen.
In a span of four months last year, Edison Police Officer Michael Dotro was charged with firebombing his supervisor’s home, buying marijuana on duty, slashing a woman’s tires and carrying illegal weapons, among other alleged crimes.
On Monday, authorities added to that prodigious list, saying that in 2012, Dotro plotted a campaign of retaliation against one of his own — a North Brunswick cop — for charging a family member with drunken driving.
And this time, authorities said, Dotro enlisted help from his friends on the force.
In the latest blow to the troubled Edison Police Department, authorities arrested Dotro and two other officers at the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office Monday afternoon.
Dotro, 36, of Manalapan, Patrolman Victor Aravena, 42, of Edison, and acting Lt. William Gesell, 45, of Edison, were charged with conspiring to retaliate for a past official action, a fourth-degree offense that carries up to 18 months in prison.
The U.S. Marshals Service confirms that a deputy marshal shot a man in the area of Bridge and Five Points Road in southwest Albuquerque on Tuesday morning.
According to a U.S. Marshals official at the scene, the incident started around 9:30 a.m. with a traffic stop. Marshals pulled over a suspect wanted on multiple warrants who had a "violent history" with law enforcement.
Authorities were not clear on what initiated the shooting, but said the suspect was shot at least one time. A marshal was also hurt in the incident, but not shot.
Authorities did not say whether the suspect had a weapon.
The man was taken to the hospital in stable condition, according to the official at the scene.
The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department is now the lead agency investigating the shooting. Five Points is closed north of Bridge during the investigation.
...Harris County Deputy Brady Pullen arrives at 12:17 p.m., followed by another deputy. From here, accounts vary, but it's clear there's a struggle between Pullen and Kemal that leads the officers to draw Tasers and guns.
In less than 10 minutes, the delusional man is shot several times. He is pronounced dead an hour later at a Katy hospital.
The family is devastated. Marlene loses her soul mate and the family's sole provider. Her children, ages 10, 6 and 2, lose their daddy. Then it got worse.
Carmina Figueroa, sitting next to daughter Marlene Yazar, is being sued by Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Brady Pullen in the aftermath of a shooting at her home that left her son in law - Yazar's husband - dead.
One of the deputies who was sent to protect the family decided to serve them instead - with a lawsuit.
Pullen, who according to an investigator's report, suffered "superficial wounds" during the incident, accused family members of "negligence and recklessness" for not fully warning him of the "violent threat" Kemal posed...
"The lawn chair is probably not something we will use again because it did give off the wrong perception that he is just out there doing nothing but as it turned out he issued 100 citations in the two hours he was out there," said Deputy Chief Michael.
Some residents said they believe the new radar technology is a good tool for the city to use in high traffic problem areas.
"If he can sit there and get 100 people that's a serious problem to me...that area has a problem, i hope this helps to slow people down."
recurring theme: police think they can prevent crime.
In short: He's parked in a church parking lot allegedly with his high beams on. He refuses to provide ID. They claim they will mail him a citation and let him go.
Then he drives for another few minutes and is pulled over again. Officer claims he "crossed the double yellow line." Guy has a piece of paper invoking his rights in lieu of providing an ID. A standoff goes on for 20 minutes or so. Eventually police give up and claim they will mail him citations.
43-year-old Desmond Pratt, a former officer with the New Orleans Police Department’s 6th District, agreed to spend three years behind bars after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting three young girls.
As part of a plea deal, the man accepted two counts of sexual battery and one count of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile in an Orleans Parish court on Friday.
One of the counts of sexual battery had been downgraded from incest, Nola.com reports. An incest charge could have sent the former detective to prison for up to 20 years.
A fifth-grader says he was terrified when a police officer pointed a gun at him and his friends while they built a tree fort.
Omari Grant, 11, said he and his friends often play in a wooded area behind his home and were building a fort when a neighbor in the next subdivision called police to complain about what the boys were doing.
Omari told Diamant that two officers, one with his gun drawn, rolled up on him and a few of his friends as they built a fort in the trees behind his home.
"I was thinking that I don't want to be shot today, so I just listened to what they said," Omari said.
Omari said the officer holding his gun also used foul language and made him and his friends lay down on the ground.
"I learned that they're supposed to help you not make you feel scared to even come outside," Omari said.
Diamant ran what Omari told him past Edgar Dillard, whose wife, according to 911 records, called in from the next subdivision to complain the boys were "chopping off tree limbs."
"Yeah, that's pretty shocking to hear that a gun was pulled on a child," Dillard said.
On Tuesday, Shelby County Sheriff Mark Luttrell announced that Deputy Micah McNinch had been given a one-day suspension without pay for using poor judgment when he delayed Ables for expired tags while taking his mother, Vernice, to the hospital.
Ables was taking his 83-year-old mother, who suffered from a lung condition, to St. Francis Hospital-Bartlett in the early morning hours of that rainy March 12 when McNinch stopped him because his car tags expired at the end of February -- less than two weeks earlier.
Ables stopped near Barnes & Nobles Booksellers at Wolfchase Galleria, less than a mile from the hospital.
Ables asked McNinch to call an ambulance. He then asked the deputy if he could let him get his mother to the hospital and then deal with the violation. About 12 minutes later, the ambulance arrived, according to the dash-cam video on McNinch's car.
After paramedics worked on the woman, she was taken to the hospital.
Myself would think that, as a citizen, the same Bill of Rights otta be as good enough to serve them as serves the rest of us.
I'd think that, as a policeman, they have not rights but have obligations and duty.
As the cops become more and more military one might consider that great issue is made that a soldier has surrendered much of those rights to serve his country.
Who does cops serve? - Self and fellow cops?
The police officer who mistakenly shot and killed a Hofstra University student as she was held at gunpoint by a Long Island intruder last year has been cleared of wrongdoing.
Nassau County officer Nikolas Budimlic "acted accordingly" when he opened fire, killing not only the armed suspect but 21-year-old Andrea Rebello in May 2013, the Nassau County District Attorney's Office announced Wednesday.
Budimlic "reasonably perceived threats of deadly force against himself and others and acted accordingly," the report states in part.
The suspect, Delton Smith, 30, who was a wanted felon after breaking parole for an armed robbery, was shot seven times by the responding officer.
Rebello, whom Smith was restraining in a headlock at the time, was tragically shot once in the head by the officer and died at Nassau University Medical Center.
The city has adopted a new ordinance barring anyone from being in the median of a divided road except in certain cases.
The measure was prompted by the actions of a Frisco man whose October arrest made national news. Ron Martin was standing in the median along Eldorado Parkway at Ranchview Lane with a homemade sign warning motorists about police ahead.
Police officers at the scene said he was violating the city’s human sign ordinance. They handcuffed him and transported him to the city jail, where he was booked and required to pay $217 bail to be released.
A municipal court judge dismissed the misdemeanor charge last month, saying it wasn’t clear what the offense was.
