New York ~ United States -- Opening statements and testimony began this week in the long-awaited trial of New York City police officer Peter Liang for the killing of Akai Gurley, an unarmed 28-year-old African-American man walking down the stairs in his apartment building, part of the Louis H. Pink housing projects in the East New York section of Brooklyn. Jury selection in the case was completed last week. Gurley died more than 14 months ago, on November 20, 2014, as two cops were making a “vertical patrol,” checking the stairwells in the high-rise building. As Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney Marc Fliedner put it, opening the prosecution’s case, “Akai Gurley is dead today because he crossed paths with Peter Liang.” Liang was indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury on manslaughter and other charges last February, and both prosecution and defense agree on the immediate events that led to Gurley’s death.(Click here for video)

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

Brooklyn, NY -- A newly-released surveillance video (Click here for video) contradicts an undercover NYPD police officer who arrested four people in Brooklyn for allegedly trying to rob him on Dec. 26, 2015, according to a defense lawyer. Jean Scott, 33; Peterson Duplan, 28; Ricardi Joseph, 29; and Samantha Dabel, 24, said that they were approached by a man who tried to buy drugs from them at a hardware store. The undercover cop was identified as Winston McDonald, who testified in court that Duplan allegedly flashed a switchblade at him outside of the store, and said, "Give me your money or I will stab you," according to court papers.

Forth Worth, TX -- The mother of ‘affluenza’ teen Ethan Couch was ordered released from a Tarrant County jail cell after a bond hearing this afternoon. She may be leaving the jail soon.

She is also not to consume alcoholic beverages or use social media. “Let’s look at it for what it is, I understand everyone is concerned and there is outrage in the community… but as a judge I have to look at the law,” said Judge Salvant. Couch and her lawyers were present at a 2 p.m. bond hearing at the Tarrant County Justice Center hoping to have her bond reduced.

Stunningly, Hartnett can be seen in the video getting out of his patrol car and chasing down the shooter after being ambushed. Officials say Hartnett is in critical but stable condition.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

Robert Grimminger, Killer Cop/Firefighter

April 1, 2011


San Francisco's interim police chief on Thursday rejected charges by the public defender that videotape of a Richmond District drug bust showed that undercover officers had lied about their search, the S.F. Chronicle said. The controversy surrounds a hallway security video taken March 1 of three plainclothes officers from the Richmond District police station as they arrested McLaren Wenzell, 23, at his 33rd Avenue apartment. Public Defender Jeff Adachi said Wednesday that the tape showed the officers had been "untruthful" in their police reports about the circumstances of the arrest. The officers, who had no search warrant, falsely said their police stars were displayed openly and that Wenzell had promptly invited them into his apartment, Adachi said.

Description: In the United States, race and police brutality continue to be closely linked, and the phenomenon has sparked a string of race riots and general uprisings over the years. During the Vietnam War, anti-war demonstrations were sometimes quelled through the use of billy-clubs and CS gas, commonly known as tear gas. The most notorious of these assaults took place during the August 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The actions of the police were later described as a "police riot" in the Walker Report to the U.S. National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence (See Documentary). One recent and notable uprising was caused by the arrest and beating of Rodney King on March 3, 1991 by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department. The police officers' brutality had been videotaped by a bystander and widely broadcast (around the world) afterwards. When the four law enforcement officers charged with assault and other charges were acquitted, the 1992 Los Angeles Riots broke out (See Documentary). Copyright © 2013 Streat Beatz™.

Grounded Stand!

Posted: June 28, 2012 9:32 AM - Updated: Jan 15, 2013 11:31 AM PDT

HOUSTON, TX - Retired Houston firefighter Raul Rodriguez (pictured left) was sentenced Wednesday to 40 years after he claimed that Texas' version of a stand-your-ground law allowed him to fatally shoot a neighbor over an argument about a noisy party. Rodriguez, 46, was convicted of murder on June 13 for the 2010 killing of 36-year-old Kelly Danaher, an elementary school teacher. Angry about the noise coming from a birthday party at his neighbor's home, Rodriguez went over to Danaher's house and got into an argument with her and two other men.

In a 22-minute video he recorded on the night of the shooting, Rodriguez told a police dispatcher "my life is in danger now" and "these people are going to go try and kill me." He then said, "I'm standing my ground here," and fatally shot Danaher and wounded the other two men.

At trial, defense attorneys said Rodriguez, who had a concealed handgun license, was defending himself when one of the men lunged at him and he had less than a second to respond. Prosecutors called Rodriguez the aggressor and said he could have safely left his neighbor's driveway any time before the shooting, and the said Rodriguez had a history of not getting along with Danaher and other neighbors.

One neighbor testified that Rodriguez bragged about his guns and said a person could avoid prosecution in a shooting by telling authorities you were in fear of your life and were standing your ground and defending yourself. During the trial's punishment phase, neighbors, former co-workers and Rodriguez's ex-wife testified that Rodriguez was abusive, a bad neighbor and once shot a dog.

Rodriguez's attorneys also called for more than a dozen witnesses during the punishment phase, including his wife and sons. They and other family members testified that he was not abusive, always stressed the importance of gun safety and was not cavalier with his weapons. One son said Rodriguez shot the dog because it was attacking his family.

Rodriguez's defense was similar to that used by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who is citing Florida's stand-your-ground law in his defense in the fatal February shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin. Rodriguez's case, however, was decided under a different kind of self-defense doctrine.

Texas' version of a stand-your-ground law is known as the Castle Doctrine. It was revised in 2007 to expand the right to use deadly force. The new version allows people to defend themselves in their homes, workplaces or vehicles. The law also says that a person using force cannot provoke the attacker or be involved in criminal activity at the time.

HOUSTON, TX (WCJB) - A retired Houston-area firefighter was convicted of murder Wednesday for gunning down his unarmed neighbor during a dispute over a noisy house party, with jurors rejecting his argument that he was within his rights under Texas' version of a stand-your-ground law. Raul Rodriguez, 47, faces up to life in prison for the 2010 killing of Kelly Danaher. Jurors deliberated for about five hours after having received the case following closing arguments earlier Wednesday.

During closing arguments, prosecutor Kelli Johnson said Rodriguez (pictured left) started the confrontation when instead of calmly asking Danaher to turn down the music he armed himself with a handgun and a camera and proceeded to harass people at the party. Johnson said Rodriguez lured and provoked Danaher and two other men to come out onto the street and threatened them by brandishing his gun. Rodriguez did have a concealed handgun license. She said Danaher and the two other men were unarmed and that Rodriguez's life was never in any danger. Danaher's widow had told jurors her husband was not a confrontational person. "This is not what stand your ground is," Johnson said. "Stand your ground is something the law takes very seriously. The law makes it very clear" when the law can be used.

Rodriguez was angry about the noise coming from Danaher's home, where the family was having a birthday party for Danaher's wife and young daughter. Rodriguez went to the home and got into an argument with Danaher, a 36-year-old elementary school teacher, and two other men who were at the party. In a 22-minute video he recorded the night of the shooting, Rodriguez can be heard telling a police dispatcher "my life is in danger now" and "these people are going to go try and kill me." He then said "I'm standing my ground here," and shot Danaher after somebody appeared to grab his camera. The two other men were wounded.

Rodriguez's reference to standing his ground is similar to the claim made by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who is citing Florida's stand-your-ground law in his defense in the fatal February shooting of an unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin. Rodriguez's case, however, was decided under a different kind of self-defense doctrine.

Texas' version of the law, which is known as the Castle Doctrine, was revised in 2007 to expand the right to use deadly force. It allows people to defend themselves not only in their homes but also in their workplaces or vehicles. Legal experts say the expansion also gave people wider latitude on the use of deadly force. The law also says a person using force can't provoke the attacker or be involved in criminal activity at the time. Johnson said Rodriguez can't hide behind the stand-your-ground law because he provoked the confrontation and then brandished his weapon against an unarmed individual, which is a crime. Johnson told jurors prosecutors don't have any problems with guns in Texas. "But with that comes a lot of responsibility. It has to be used as a last resort," she said.

However, his defense attorney said he doesn't believe Rodriguez did anything illegal. He said Rodriguez went to complain and was confronted by Danaher and the two other partygoers, and that he didn't pull out his gun until he was standing in the street and Danaher approached him in a threatening manner. "He had a right to be (in) the street. He was not provoking anybody. He was not engaged in any criminal activity. The (stand-your-ground) law is not only for home invasions. That's why the law was changed," Davis said. An acquittal of Rodriguez would not "say everyone in the city of Houston is going to turn into the wild, wild west," the attorney said.

Danaher's wife, Mindy, said she cried tears of joy and sadness after the verdict was read. "I'm just glad that he can't hurt anybody else. That's my main thing," she said outside the courtroom. "I love my husband and I miss him so much."

Rodriguez's attorneys left the courtroom without speaking to reporters. His family, who sobbed after hearing the verdict, declined to comment. His attorneys did not present any witnesses in his defense. The trial's punishment phase, which will include further testimony, was scheduled to begin Thursday. A Houston criminal defense attorney who was not involved in the case but who followed it, said a conviction in a case like Rodriguez's might prompt some clarification of Texas' stand-your-ground law that would more clearly define what it means to provoke someone. But he said the outcome of the case, conviction or acquittal, would not lead to major changes in the law.

DECATUR, Ga. - The DeKalb County sheriff's office says three detention officers have been charged in relation to a scuffle involving an inmate. The sheriff's office says officers Nelson Seals, Jean Bruno and Deborah Grier were arrested Monday. Officials say an argument on May 15 between Seals and the unidentified inmate over restroom use became physical. The inmate was being held in the DeKalb County Jail on a disorderly conduct charge. Sheriff Thomas Brown says all three officers, along with an unidentified officer, have been suspended without pay.

Dr. Death!

CNET

Posted: 03/29/2011 10:52:14 PM PDT Updated: 03/30/2011 02:14:55 PM PDT The family of a 29-year-old Antioch man killed during a Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement bust three years ago has appealed a justifiable killing ruling, the latest development in the law enforcement scandal involving former CNET task force commander Norman Wielsch. The appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals by the family of Timothy Wayne Mitchell says that other officers involved with the CNET task force will soon be charged with felonies. Wielsch was one of five defendants in a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by Mitchell's family after he was fatally shot by Pittsburg police Officer Les Galer on March 11, 2008, during a drug bust at Mitchell's apartment. San Francisco U.S. District Judge Susan Illston ruled in January that Galer had "an objectionably reasonable fear of death" and "committed a justifiable act of homicide." But in filing the appeal, attorneys for Mitchell's family said Wielsch "offered sworn testimony in support" of the officers and that "his credibility is badly damaged." In addition, the lawyers wrote in the motion that the Mitchell family "is informed and believes that other (CNET) agents will soon be charged with felonies, too." Wielsch was arrested along with private investigator Christopher Butler on drug and weapons charges Feb. 16, a development that has caused attorneys to review many past cases involving the CNET task force. Wielsch and Butler have been accused of other schemes, including a staged fake arrest of a teenager in Pleasant Hill and attempts to lure targets into drunken driving arrests. Stephen Tanabe, a former Danville police officer, was arrested March 4 in connection with the so-called "dirty DUI" scheme. On Wednesday, March 30 another Vallejo attorney announced a multi-million dollar civil rights lawsuit against Wielsch, another CNET agent and three Antioch police officers. "These officers are acting like mobsters and gangsters," the attorney said. The lawsuit claims the officers stole private property during warrant searches. "We're alleging these individuals are conducting a pattern of a continuing criminal enterprise where they're abusing the courts and their police authority to seize jewelry, money, currency and other personal effects from these law abiding citizens," said the attorney. The same attorney provided surveillance photos and videos showing the officers, including a man the attorney claims is Wielsch, searching the Grow It Yourself Gardens hydroponics store in Antioch in 2009. The lawsuit claims much of the search was done without a warrant and that the owners of the store, the O'Tooles, had personal items, even a Victoria's Secret gift card, seized and never returned. The O'Tooles were never charged with a crime. Wielsch acknowledges some resemblance but says the man in the surveillance images is not him. "To me, the officer in the pictures looks like he has tattoos, the hair is different, plus we wear totally different raid gear than Antioch PD wears; if I've done something wrong, I'll admit it, but that's not me," Wielsch said. The attorney says he still believes the man in the surveillance video is Wielsch and he wants his case to go to a jury so they can decide.

Unarmed & Killed

Posted: March 28, 2011 CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, Calif. (WCJB) -- In the East Bay on Monday, one man was shot dead by police and the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office says deputies had no choice, but to open fire. Bay Point's Nathan Poznick said he heard the gunshots just after 1 a.m. Monday. It was the culmination of a traffic stop made by two Contra Costa Sheriff's deputies on a white Buick. At first the driver provided deputies with a false name, then, according to sheriff's deputies, they learned there was a warrant for the man's arrest. "The driver of the vehicle started to flee, inside the car, driving away at a high rate of speed. The deputies attempted to prevent him from driving away. One deputy became partially trapped inside the vehicle. The other deputy was struck by the vehicle. In fear for both of their safety and to prevent serious injury or fatality, one of the officers fired his service weapon," said Contra Costa Sheriff's Capt. Steve Warne. The Buick came to a stop about 200 yards from where the incident began.
"They stopped, locked their brakes up, then the cops pulled up behind him and the guy fell out, and didn't get up," said Bay Point resident Mike Grimm. The driver of the Buick, 24-year-old Johnny Angel Ochoa, was shot in the stomach and later died at an area hospital. A five-year veteran, the deputy who fired on Ochoa received minor leg injuries when struck by the car. Sheriffs say the warrant for Ochoa's arrest stemmed from prior child endangerment and vandalism charges. "This suspect was wanted on a warrant, did not want to be apprehended, and tried to flee," said Warne. Because the shooting involved a deputy, the Contra Costa District Attorney's Office will also investigate Ochoa's death.

Agent Norman Wielsch

Posted: 12:23 pm PDT March 23, 2011 MARTINEZ, Calif. -- Prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against a suspected madam because their case hinged on a California narcotics officer charged with stealing drugs from evidence lockers. The Contra Costa district attorney's office say up to 40 other cases involving State Department of Justice Agent Norman Wielsch could also be at stake. Wielsch has been charged with 25 felony counts involving the theft of methamphetamines, marijuana, steroids and prescription pills from evidence lockers. The task force led by Wielsch targeted prostitution and drug rings. The San Francisco Chronicle says prosecutors decided to drop a case involving Wielsch in a 2009 sting at the Excel Massage Therapy parlor in San Ramon. There were two arrests. A judge dismissed the case last week at Koeppel's request.

The Grim Reaper!


Robert Gremminger

On Thursday November 6, 1997, a San Jose jury composed of 7 white women, 2 white men, 2 Latinas, and 1 Asian American woman found former white San Jose Fire Captain Robert Gremminger guilty of 1) involuntary manslaughter and 2) carrying a weapon without a permit. Gremminger could face up to fourteen years in prison. Former San Jose Fire Captain Robert Gremminger had been charged with second degree murder for the shooting and killing of Anthony Lamont Gilbert, an unarmed African American man at the Great Mall of Milpitas on October 24, 1996. Many members of the African American community were outraged by the verdict. In a joint press release, the San Jose Branch of the NAACP, the San Jose Million Man March, and the Human Rights Defense Committee stated: “We are outraged by the jury’s findings. We firmly believe that had there been even one African American juror, the results may have been different. Today’s verdict shows that it's still perfectly acceptable for an individual to act as “judge, jury, and executioner” in Santa Clara County. Gremminger acted as a vigilante in the shooting and killing of Anthony Lamont Gilbert who was an unarmed African American man at the Great Mall of Milpitas.” BACKGROUND OF THE DEFENDANT Former San Jose Fire Captain Robert Gremminger resides with wife Judi Gremminger in Ben Lomond which is a small town in Santa Cruz County. Gremminger and his wife own two other properties in Santa Cruz County. One of the properties is in Boulder Creek and the other is in Felton. According to the 1990 census, Ben Lomond’s population is 93% white, Boulder Creek’s population is 95.5% white, and Felton’s population is 96.5% white. Gremminger is a registered Republican and his wife is a school teacher. His daughter is currently a San Jose Firefighter. Gremminger is the son of a San Francisco police officer and he is a former Daly City and Mountain View police officer. In the late 1960s, Mountain View High School teacher Arthur Olmos alleges that Gremminger stopped his brother for drunk driving. According to Mr. Olmos, Gremminger later arrested Mr. Olmos when he argued that his brother should not be arrested. Mr. Olmos was later taken to the Mountain View City Jail. According to Mr. Olmos, Gremminger called him “every dirty name that you could call a Mexican American.” Gremminger shot a white man in the arm in the late 1960s. The man sued and later a settlement was reached in the amount of $3,000.00. Shortly thereafter, Gremminger left the Mountain View Police Department. In 1970, Gremminger joined the San Jose Fire Department. At that time, there were no African American firefighters. On May 21, 1995, Gremminger informed San Jose city officials that an African American firefighter had leaked to him portions of the oral component of the Battalion Chief’s exam. On May 22, 1995, a city consultant rewrote the exam based on this allegation. On May 23-26, 1995, all of the five African American candidates passed the exam whereas 26 of 37 of the white candidates failed. The Santa Clara County Black Firefighters presented evidence that for the past decade, African Americans had a 90% pass rate. In some years, 100% of the African American candidates had passed the Battalion Chief’s exam. Despite this evidence, on July 26, 1995, Gremminger, along with 22 other firefighters, filed a reverse discrimination lawsuit alleging that African American firefighters had cheated on the Battalion Chief’s exam. On January 23, 1996, Superior Court Judge Conrad Rushing dismissed the lawsuit. In his dismissing the lawsuit, Judge Rushing wrote:
“The plaintiffs herein seem to me, by their testimony, to be convinced that there was a conspiracy between the five black firefighters who passed the test and the fire chief. The only evidence of that is that the chief knew and met with those persons at times prior to the test. He also knew and met with the other candidates, but the difference is that (and the only difference is) of skin color. Propping a conspiracy theory on skin color is unreasonable.”
Less than a year later, on October 24, 1996, Robert Gremminger shot and fatally wounded Anthony Lamont Gilbert at the Great Mall of Milpitas in broad day light at 12:07 p.m., with a gun that he did not have a permit to carry. Gremminger claimed that the gun was a 30 year old off duty weapon that he had from his days as a Mountain View Police Officer and prior to this incident, he had never fired the gun. Gremminger also claimed that he initially retrieved his gun from his red Corvette licensed “Hotstuff” on the basis that he thought a security guard needed help after he had confronted Gilbert over an alleged shoplifting incident in the parking lot. Gremminger did not know what the confrontation was about, nor did he ask the security guard did he need help. After Gremminger returned from retrieving his gun, he claimed that he shot his gun because he thought that Gilbert was going to run him over. At the time of the incident, Gilbert’s car was moving at the rate of one mile per hour. The whole incident with the exception of the actual shooting was captured on videotape by the Great Mall’s cameras. Gremminger was later charged with second degree murder. GREMMINGER’S WIFE DEFENDS HIS ACTIONS On November 4, 1996, Judi Gremminger called Gremminger a “hero” in the shooting and killing Anthony Lamont Gilbert. She also said “He was really trying to help someone.” Judi Gremminger also stated that if the killing had involved a “black man who shot a black man, or a brown man who shot a brown man, we wouldn’t be here today.” THE BAIL HEARING When Gremminger was arrested, he was originally held without bail. The prosecution argued that Gremminger should not be released on bail, because he was a danger to the community. On November 8, 1996, Gremminger’s attorney Ken Robinson presented over 70 letters supporting that bail should be set. Among these letters were letters from Deputy District Attorney Rod Braughton and Deputy District Attorney Lynn Knapp. Braughton was Gremminger’s former supervisor when they worked together at the Mountain View Police Department in the late 1960s. Knapp had previously worked with Gremminger at the San Jose Fire Department. To the African American community’s dismay, bail was set at $1,000,000 by Santa Clara County Municipal Court Judge Jerome Brock. On the Monday before the Thanksgiving, Gremminger posted bail (with the help of San Jose Police Officers and Firefighters) and was released. SPECIAL TREATMENT GIVEN BY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT After returning from spending the Thanksgiving holiday with his family, on December 2, 1996, the defendant Robert Gremminger was escorted in and out of Superior Court through the hallways which are reserved for judges and escorted out of the back door of the court room. The Sheriff’s office claimed that the reason for the special treatment was that it was necessary to ensure public safety. No one from Gilbert’s family had threatened Gremminger. Many members of the African American community were outraged by this unfair treatment. The NAACP intervened and requested that the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department stop providing Gremminger with special treatment. GREMMINGER FILES FOR PENSION In November 1996, the City of San Jose issued a statement saying that Gremminger was no longer with the department. However, it refused to state whether Gremminger had been terminated or had resigned. Through the San Jose Branch of the NAACP’s investigation, it discovered that Gremminger had applied for retirement benefits when he had turned 55 in November 1996. Under the City Ordinance, the City of San Jose was required to provide an employee with retirement benefits unless he is convicted of a felony or he has committed treason. Because Gremminger had been only charged with a felony, the City of San Jose was required to provide Gremminger with his retirement benefits. As a result, on December 16, 1996, the Police and Fire Retirement Board issued Gremminger’s pension in the amount of $47,000.00 per year. THE TRIAL AND ITS JURY POOL On October 6, 1997, the trial of Robert Gremminger finally began. The jury pool of 180 prospective jurors consisted largely of whites. There were only a handful of African Americans. One African American man testified that he could not be fair and impartial, because his family had gone through a similar incident. As a result, he was excused from the jury duty. The final jury picked was composed of 8 white women who were mostly middle aged and senior citizens, 1 white man, 2 Latinas, and 1 Asian American woman. The San Jose Branch of the NAACP was disappointed by the composition of the jury. However, because there was no legal ground for the NAACP to challenge the composition of the jury, the NAACP was unable to take any action. EVIDENCE THAT THE JURY NEVER HEARD The jury was presented evidence of the videotape, Gremminger’s testimony, the security guard Gary Petrakowitz’s testimony, Milipitas police officer Steven Petrakowitz’s testimony and about a half dozen witnesses who saw the shooting and killing of Anthony Lamont Gilbert. The jury also visited the scene of the crime. However, the jury was never presented evidence relating the following incidents: 1) Gremminger’s shooting of a man in the late 1960s in the arm, 2) the reverse discrimination lawsuit in which he alleged African American firefighters had cheated on the Battalion Chief’s exam, and 3) testimony from Mr. Olmos in which he would have alleged that Gremminger as a Mountain View Police Officer had called him racial epithets in 1960s. Because Gremminger never presented evidence relating to his character, the prosecution could not present any evidence which related to his character. As a result, the jury was never provided with the above evidence. GREMMINGER’S ATTORNEY’S ARGUMENT In his closing argument, criminal defense attorney Ken Robinson pointed out problems with the videotape. Prosecutor Joyce Allegro in her rebuttal later pointed out to the jury that in Robinson’s opening statement, he had said “Thank God for the video. This is the best evidence that we have.” Robinson noted the defendant had dedicated his entire life to protecting people. Robinson pointed to Gremminger’s past careers as a police officer and a firefighter. Robinson also pointed out that Gilbert had assaulted security guards in the past when he had other shoplifting incidents. Robinson also noted that self defense does not require that the individual retreat from danger. Under the law, the individual has the right to stand his ground and defend himself. Robinson noted that he would have left and summoned help. However, given Gremminger’s background in helping others, he was under no duty to retreat. He had the right to defend himself. Robinson also pointed that other witnesses supported Gremminger’s testimony that he felt his life was in danger. He concluded by telling the jury that he was turning over the fate of Gremminger’s life to them. THE PROSECUTION’S ARGUMENT In her closing argument, veteran prosecutor Joyce Allegro pointed to the videotape as the best evidence of Gremminger’s intent to kill Anthony Lamont Gilbert. Allegro refuted Gremminger’s claim that he had retrieved his gun from his car in order to protect the security guard who was in the middle of a confrontation with Anthony Lamont Gilbert who was a driver of 1989 Pontiac that was boxed between other vehicles. Not once did Gremminger ask the security guard did he need help or what was going on. Allegro also pointed out if Gremminger were so concerned about the security guard’s safety why did he turn his back to him when he went to his car to retrieve the gun. She also noted that Gremminger had not run to his car to retrieve the gun, rather he “sauntered” over to his car. Allegro also refuted the defense’s allegation that Gilbert intended to run over Gremminger after he returned. She noted at the time of the shooting, Gremminger had stated the car was going one mile per hour. Allegro pointed to other evidence that Gilbert’s foot was on the brakes and it took several men to remove Gilbert from the car. She also stated that even if Gilbert had been accelerating, shooting him would not have stopped the car. She compared Gremminger to acting as “judge, jury, and executioner” and practicing vigilantism. Allegro asked the jury “Since when do you get the death penalty for petty theft?” THE JURY’S DELIBERATIONS AND ITS VERDICT After jury instructions were given on November 4, 1997, the jury began its deliberations. At the end of the day, one juror informed the court that she could not continue to serve, because she had a prepaid airline ticket. As a result, she was replaced with a white male juror and deliberations began all over again on November 5, 1997. The jurors never really entertained the issue of race. One white male juror noted that they discussed the issue for five minutes and that issue was later put to rest. Initially five of the jurors wanted to acquit Gremminger on theory that he had acted in self defense. Two wanted Gremminger to be convicted of second degree murder. Others felt that Gremminger had acted negligently in firing into a crowded parking lot during noontime. After two days of deliberations, the jury decided to reach a compromise. On Thursday November 6, 1997 at approximately 5:15 p.m., it announced its verdict of involuntary manslaughter. The members of the family of the victim were shocked by the jury’s findings. THE COMMUNITY’S RESPONSE TO THE VERDICT The San Jose Branch of the NAACP, San Jose Million Man March and the Human Rights Defense Committee held a community forum at the African American Community Service Agency on the night of the verdict. The civil rights organizations advocated that Gremminger should receive the maximum penalty under California law and he not be given probation, because probation was totally unacceptable. They also advocated that because Gremminger had been convicted of a felony, the City of San Jose Police and Fire Retirement Board should exercise it discretionary powers and revoke Gremminger’s pension. SAN JOSE CITY COUNCIL MEMBER ALICE WOODY’S RESPONSE San Jose City Council Member Alice Woody who [wa]s the only African American member of the San Jose City Council and a member of the San Jose Police and Fire Department Board will place on the January agenda of the San Jose Police and Fire Department Board the line item of whether the Board should revoke Gremminger’s pension. THE FAMILY OF THE VICTIM FILES 7.5 MILLION DOLLAR LAWSUIT On November 7, 1997, Rodney Moore who is the attorney for the family of the victim Anthony Lamont Gilbert announced that the family had filed a 7.5 million dollar lawsuit against the City of San Jose, City of Milpitas, Great Mall of Milpitas, and Robert Gremminger. The San Jose Branch of the NAACP has vowed that it will support the victim’s family in its civil lawsuit. RACIST BACKLASH IN THE FACE OF THE VERDICT Since the announcement of the verdict, the San Jose Branch of the NAACP has received several racist messages on its answering machine. One message from an unidentified white male stated: “F--k the struggle. You guys are a bunch of n----rs. This n----r got shot for shoplifting. Deserves what he got. He f-----g steals from people. That’s what I call justice. That’s what I think.”

January 23, 2009

Oakland, CA (WCJB)
November 6, 2009 - White Plains, New York (WCJB) -- Former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik on Thursday pleaded guilty to charges of lying to Bush administration officials who vetted his unsuccessful 2004 nomination to be homeland security secretary. Kerik admitted to eight counts as part of a plea agreement with federal prosecutors, who are recommending a 27-to-33 month prison term. U.S. District Judge Stephen Robinson set Kerik's sentencing for February 18, 2010. In court papers, prosecutors said Kerik denied to a White House official that there was "any possible concern" about his relationships with the contractors involved in renovations to his apartment or that he had any financial dealings with prospective city contractors. Kerik has spent the past two weeks in jail after a judge revoked his bail. According to court papers released in late October, he violated the terms of his bail by leaking confidential evidence about his case to a lawyer who published the material online.

Birmingham PD!


April 2, 2011

Birmingham, Alabama -- a city with a long history of racial strife -- has been shaken by the release this week of a video recording showing a group of white police officers hitting an African-American man accused of attempting to steal a car. Travarious Daniel, 29, was arrested outside a nightclub in downtown Birmingham shortly after 1 a.m. on March 20. Video of the arrest shows Daniel, his hands raised in the air, briefly staggering down a sidewalk before being tackled and struck multiple times in the back of the head. A photo published by the Birmingham News shows Daniel with a bandage over a swollen eye after his arrest. Two officers have been placed on paid administrative leave pending the result of an internal investigation, according to an attorney for the local Fraternal Order of Police.

Calls to the Birmingham's police department were not immediately returned Friday.

Daniel (pictured left) has been charged with unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle and receiving stolen property. But it is the allegation of police brutality that is drawing attention. Daniel's attorney said the video, which he released to the media, came from the nightclub's security camera. Daniel works at the club and obtained the video. "A group of white policemen and my client is a black victim. Do the math," said Daniel's attorney. "It's very sad that this is being cast as a racial matter," the polices' attorney replied. "The police department is color-blind (she's kidding). This is not a racial matter. Not at all."

Birmingham Mayor William Bell -- himself an African-American -- is withholding judgment until the results of an internal investigation. "The mayor is very disturbed at the video and the images," said Chuck Faush, Bell's chief of staff. But "there is due process and we will wait to find out the facts." Faush told media sources the city had been examining the possibility of increased mandatory training on issues related to law enforcement and race before Daniel's arrest. The city has also been reaching out to local faith-based and other civic leaders to encourage closer ties. "This heightens what we're trying to do," he said. A police attorney called the mayor "reasonable" and said the police welcome the idea of increased training. But Bell "does not have a law enforcement background," she noted. The video showing Daniel being hit doesn't tell the whole story, she said. She noted that the officers were initially forced to chase Daniel -- who has prior felony convictions -- and that in dealing with a suspect, holding the hands in the air can sometimes be interpreted as an act of defiance. Most people "see the gentleman with his hands in the air and they think he's giving up," she said. But defendants are told to drop to the ground, and "if you resist, there will be action taken by the police." "They used only the force necessary to (ensure) an arrest," she asserted. Daniel's attorney dismissed the police attorney's claim. "We have a defense to this, and they know we do," he said. The video is "clear evidence there are some bad apples in the police department." Daniel's attorney said Daniel intends to file a lawsuit against the police department. Daniel's first court hearing on the car theft charge is scheduled for April 11. Birmingham, Alabama's largest city, was the center of the civil rights movement that reverberated through the United States and beyond in the 1950s and 1960s. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested in the city for taking part in a peaceful demonstration, and penned the now-famous "Letter from Birmingham Jail," an open letter in which he spelled out his justifications for civil disobedience: "... one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." The city also suffered the scars of racially motivated bombings during those turbulent years, most notably a blast at the 16th Street Baptist Church that killed four black girls in 1963. The Civil Rights Act, which outlawed racial segregation, was signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson the following year. Still, Birmingham has worked hard to rebuild its infrastructure and its image. In recent years, it has adopted "The Diverse City" moniker, "recognizing the city's undeniable civil rights heritage while promoting its diversified destinations" as the Birmingham Business Journal once put it. The mayor's office declined to discuss the possible broader racial ramifications of the case. Bell, the mayor, plans to be in Atlanta on Monday as one of the recipients of an award from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. The "Keeper of the Dream" award -- an allusion to King's historic "I Have a Dream" speech -- is given to those who work toward improving equality and justice. In Birmingham, "we embrace our past, but we only use it to build our future," Faush said.

Recent History!

May 20, 2009
Five Birmingham police officers have been fired for a January 2008 beating of an already-unconscious suspect with fists, feet and a billy club, a battering caught on videotape until a police officer turned off the patrol car camera, city and police officials said today. The suspect, Anthony Warren, didn't even know he'd been beaten until the tape surfaced at his trial in March. Warren was ejected from the vehicle and knocked unconscious, and thought all of his injuries were sustained in the wreck. Police Chief A.C. Roper called the video "shameful." Mayor Larry Langford said it was "disgusting." Roper said the video shamed the police department and the citizens served by the department, saying it was especially troubling because these were seasoned, veteran officers. Roper hasn't identified the officers. Four of them worked in the department's Vice and Narcotics Unit; the fifth was a North Precinct patrolman.

"The cops beat the crap out of me."

Capt. Edward I. Poulson, OPD

OAKLAND — Oakland police Capt. Edward Poulson, who was placed on administrative leave in January after the FBI opened an investigation into his possible role in the death of a drug suspect in 2000, returned to work this week even as the FBI investigation continues. Poulson was head of the department's Internal Affairs Division when he was put on leave, and former Chief Wayne Tucker's decision to place him atop that unit drew sharp criticism because of Poulson's involvement in the 2000 incident and subsequent findings that he interfered with the investigation of it. Poulson (pictured right) will be handling administrative projects for the department, at least until the FBI investigation of 35-year-old Jerry Amaro's death is complete, the department said. [O]ne of Poulson's attorneys, said the decision to bring him back to work is confirmation "there is no basis to the allegation Capt. Poulson was guilty of any misconduct leading to the death of Mr. Amaro (or it could be a continuation of the corruption at the Oakland Police Department)." According to Officer Jeff Thomason, the department's spokesman, Poulson, who has been getting paid his annual salary of about $148,000 a year since he was placed on leave, was returned to duty by Chief Anthony Batts "because there is work he could be doing for the department." Thomason also said that the department already has disciplined Poulson once for the incident and that the only way the captain would face further discipline is if he is convicted in federal court. FBI Special Agent Joe Schadler said he could not comment on the FBI's activity with respect to the 2000 incident. But it is known that police officers involved in it have been interviewed by the FBI and also are giving depositions in a $10 million civil rights lawsuit filed by Amaro's family this year. Poulson was a patrol lieutenant overseeing a drug sting in 2000 when Amaro was arrested on suspicion of attempting to buy drugs from an undercover officer. The family's lawsuit alleges that police used excessive force during the arrest that may have included kicking and punching Amaro while he was on the ground. Amaro suffered five broken ribs, a lacerated lung and other injuries. He died April 21, 2000, of pneumonia caused by fractured ribs and a collapsed lung. The lawsuit names Poulson and seven other officers who, according to allegations, either used excessive force, failed to stop it or conspired to conceal what happened. An outside attorney subsequently wrote in a confidential memo to city officials that there was "strong circumstantial evidence" that police covered up what really happened in the 2000 incident. The Alameda County District Attorney's Office reviewed the case but declined to bring any charges. Poulson faced possible termination but instead was suspended for two weeks without pay for interfering with the department's Internal Affairs investigation. The family's lawsuit claims Amaro was denied medical help.
UPDATE - 1-29-09
There is "strong circumstantial evidence" that police covered up the 2000 beating of drug suspect Jerry Amaro III, who died a month after suffering broken ribs, according to confidential city documents obtained late Wednesday. Two other people also arrested in the same drug sting and put in a police car with Amaro later told investigators Amaro was "complaining constantly that he was in pain, and wanted to see a doctor and that (he) was sweating profusely, consistent with a painful injury," the document states. Amaro was denied immediate medical care. Poulson is suspected of kicking Amaro and then ordering subordinate officers to lie about it. Administrative charges against Poulson were sustained for interfering in an internal affairs investigation. Then-Chief Richard Word changed a recommendation to fire Poulson to a two-week suspension. Last year, Chief Wayne Tucker put Poulson in charge of Internal Affairs. In announcing his resignation Tuesday, hours before City Council members were scheduled to call for a no-confidence vote on him, partly because of the Poulson matter, Tucker said he would have fired Poulson if he had been given the same choice as Word. But Tucker also described Poulson as his best choice last year to head Internal Affairs. A separate confidential document City Attorney John Russo wrote to City Council members in 2005 stated that Poulson was "permitted to issue directives concerning the investigation to the other officers who were being investigated even though he was (the) subject of the investigation." Russo declined to comment on the document Wednesday, saying "it speaks for itself." Poulson, who has not commented since his suspension a week ago, could not be reached. Laura Stevens, an outside attorney who investigated the matter for Russo's office, found deep flaws in the Internal Affairs investigation of the cover-up and the homicide-unit probe of Amaro's death. "No mention of Amaro's alleged resistance to arrest or the alleged need to use force on him were contained in the police records of his arrest," Stevens wrote. She also noted that officers about to be interviewed by homicide detectives met together before the interviews, and then all told detectives they saw no one use force on Amaro. Russo wrote in a companion memo: "The interviews conducted by internal affairs were exceedingly shallow: inconsistencies were not explored, the inability to recall details was not probed and the questioning seemed to offer excuses to officers." Stevens questioned how Word handled the matter. Word ordered that discrepancies in some officers' statements "not be held against" them, she wrote. She added emphasis to the word "not" in that sentence and wrote, "Frankly, I am mystified by the statement." Word has declined to discuss the matter, citing the confidentiality of internal police documents. Capt. Edward I. Poulson, (pictured above right) who heads Internal Affairs, was suspended with pay by the department [January 22, 2009]. "The cops beat the crap out of me." That's what Jerry Amaro III told family members almost nine years ago. Police documents obtained by the Chauncey Bailey Project state that Amaro complained of injuries at both the then-Oakland City Jail, where he was held for three days, and Alameda's Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, where he was held for one day. They don't state whether he was treated. "He said no one would help him in jail[.]" Amaro died alone in a friend's basement on April 21, 2000, of pneumonia and complications from pneumonia and a punctured lung caused by five broken ribs.
January 23, 2009
The FBI is investigating allegations that [Poulson] head of the Oakland Police Department's Internal Affairs Division almost nine years ago beat [Jerry Amaro III] who later died, and then ordered subordinate officers to lie about it. Poulson, of Danville, did not return messages. Police Chief Wayne Tucker refused requests for an interview. In a written statement released [January 22, 2009], Tucker said the department was cooperating with the FBI. The FBI is investigating allegations that Poulson, working with an undercover team in April 2000, kicked a drug suspect, breaking his ribs, the sources said. The suspect, Jerry Amaro, died about a month later of pneumonia caused by broken ribs and a collapsed lung, according to a coroner's report. Before Amaro died, he told several people about the incident, according to police reports. Internal Affairs investigators at the time found that Poulson ordered subordinate officers to lie about his involvement, and those investigators called for his firing, according to the sources. Then-Chief Richard Word (Chief of Vacaville Police Department) instead suspended Poulson for two weeks. No charges were brought in Amaro's death after a homicide investigation, the sources said. Officers with knowledge of the matter said colleagues were angry that a member of the command staff who had been punished for interfering in an Internal Affairs investigation was later put in charge of Internal Affairs, and they alerted the FBI.
Two police officers, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Thursday that FBI agents have interviewed them in recent days about Amaro's arrest and death, and a raft of other incidents that include: • The department's handling of Bailey's Aug. 2, 2007, slaying, for which police arrested only one person on murder charges. The Chauncey Bailey Project reported in October that the lead detective in the case, Sgt. Derwin Longmire, failed to document in his case notes evidence of a conspiracy pointing to former Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV's involvement in the killing. • The recent scandal involving the falsification of search warrants. Department leaders last week notified 11 officers of their intention to fire them. Another officer was fired last month. • A whistle-blower complaint that police Lt. Lawrence Green filed last month alleging that Tucker squashed a rank-and-file vote of no confidence in his administration by promoting then-police union president, Officer Robert Valladon, to "acting sergeant," a move that increased Valladon's pay and boosted his eligibility for a higher pension. • Allegations that former City Administrator Deborah Edgerly last year leaked news of a pending drug raid to a nephew who was a gang member. • The conduct of Deputy Police Chief Jeffrey Loman, who is accused of sexually harassing a subordinate female officer and also is being investigated for his supervision of Longmire's work in the Bailey case. The FBI probe comes nearly three months after Dellums requested the state Justice Department conduct a parallel investigation of an internal affairs probe of how the Bailey case was handled.

“Another Nigger fried. No big deal.”

-- April 16, 2011, Statement by New York City Police Officer Michael Daragjati, boasting of his false arrest of another African-American male.

"Quiet Courage!"

Posted: June 13, 2012 11:11 PM - updated on: 06:14 pm PDT, July 3, 2012

NEW YORK (WCJB) – An NYPD officer pleaded not guilty Wednesday to manslaughter charges in the shooting death of an unarmed Bronx teenager. Officer Richard Haste was arraigned after turning himself in to face first- and second-degree manslaughter charges in the death of 18-year-old Ramarley Graham (pictured below, right) who was shot and killed on Feb. 2, 2012. There was a moment Wednesday when Haste made $50,000 bail and was leaving the courthouse when fellow officers in the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association cheered and supporters of Graham jeered, chanting “NYPD, KKK — how many kids did you kill today?”
"They are representative of the sacrifices and that quiet courage that exists among law enforcement officers all across the country and their families."


-- May 12, 2012, Statement by Barack Obama in a White House Rose Garden ceremony to honor the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO).

Police said narcotics officers spotted Graham on the street adjusting his waistband and thought he had a gun. When the officers approached, authorities said Graham took off running toward his home. Surveillance cameras captured Haste, who was undercover as part of the NYPD Street Narcotics Enforcement Unit, running after Graham. Police said officers confronted Graham in his bathroom as he tried to flush marijuana down the toilet. Moments later, Graham was shot in the chest, collapsed and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police said they believed the teen was armed with a gun, but a gun was never recovered. Graham’s family said the teen’s grandmother and 6-year-old brother were inside the house at the time of the shooting. “Officer Haste consciously and deliberately pulled the trigger, shooting Ramarley Graham and causing his death,” Assistant District Attorney Donald Levin said.

NYPD Drug Dealers!



The cheers of fellow cops for her unarmed son’s killer stung Constance Malcolm as cruelly as the bitter tears in her eyes. “That’s how they work,” the heartbroken mom said Wednesday after Officer Richard Haste was sprung on $50,000 bail in the Feb. 2 shooting of Ramarley Graham. “You see it every day.” Yet the assembled cops still applauded their brother in blue, who faces up to 25 years in prison, in a salute that struck the Graham family like a slap in the face. “There is nothing to cheer here,” said Graham family lawyer Jeffrey Emdin. “A young man lost his life, and that is the man who took that life.
video
While cops contend Graham ran when ordered to stop, surveillance video showed him walking inside his home before plainclothes cops tried to kick their way into the apartment. Haste claimed that he fired once after identifying himself as a police officer and mistakenly thinking that he saw a weapon—but no gun was found. Posted: 6:47 am, May 17, 2012 - updated on: 07:31 am, May 17, 2012 New York -- The 'sacrifices and that quiet courage that exists among law enforcement officers all across the country', including New York, brings us (once again) the tragic killing of (unarmed) Ramarley Graham (pictured below, center) in his own bathroom by courageous NYPD Officer Richard Haste. Graham first came to the attention of NYPD officers because he had exited a storefront where they believed drug sales occurred. Paul J. Browne, the New York Police Department’s chief spokesman, said there was “no evidence that he was armed” when the officer, a member of a narcotics unit, shot him once in the upper left chest. Haste, 30 (pictured below, center) and colleagues with the 47th Precinct Street Narcotics Enforcement Unit broke into his grandmother's apartment and shot Graham in the chest while he attempted to flush a bag of marijuana down the toilet. Haste confronted Graham in the bathroom, supposedly operating on incorrect information – which their own colleagues had confirmed to a supervisor as factual – that Graham had a gun in his waistband. Graham was unarmed and police did not have a warrant to enter the home. The large number of officers at the house indicated that Graham wasn't likely to escape and that officers could have waited to obtain a warrant before storming the apartment, said the Graham family's attorney. It was later claimed that two witnesses communicated to NYPD officers that they saw a gun on Graham’s person. The claim that Graham had a gun was then confirmed by the two NYPD officers to their supervisor Scott Morris. No gun was found on or around Graham. Footage from private surveillance cameras shows Graham walking into his grandmother's apartment building, a three-story home on a residential street. Police officers, guns drawn, quickly follow and attempt to kick down the front door after finding it locked. In the back of the building, other officers swarm in through a rear apartment. The cameras do not capture what transpired inside, but police officials told news sources that officers entered the grandmother's apartment after she opened the door in response to loud knocks. They did not have a search warrant. Haste's partner told investigators that Haste identified himself as a police officer, told Graham to "show his hands" and then yelled "gun, gun" before firing, Kelly said. But Graham's grandmother maintains that officers did not announce their presence entering her home and that Haste did not say anything to Graham before shooting him, the family's attorney said. Many linked the shooting to the NYPD's aggressive street policing program, called "stop-and-frisk," which predominantly targets low-income minority neighborhoods. In 2011, the program stopped and searched more than 500,000 New Yorkers, 85 percent of them black or Latino. The searches contributed to a record number of misdemeanor marijuana arrests last year. Graham's death has sparked street protests in Wakefield, a low-income neighborhood with a large African-American and Caribbean immigrant population, with many decrying the police actions as brazenly illegal. "They had no business kicking down the door. They went too far," said Tyrone Harris, 27. "They need to go to jail just like any other citizen."

"Quiet 'White Plains' Courage!"

Posted: June 13, 2012 11:11 PM - updated on: 06:14 pm PDT, July 3, 2012 NEW YORK (WCJB) -- A New York grand jury has declined to indict a white police officer who shot and killed an ailing black veteran in his own apartment, the Westchester County District Attorney's Office said Thursday. The shooting occurred in November after police responded to a call that Kenneth Chamberlain, who suffered from respiratory and heart problems, had set off his medical alert device, indicating he needed help. The encounter was recorded by audio and video devices, which police planned to release to the public after Chamberlain's family accused police of excessive force and racial profiling. District Attorney Janet DiFiore, who referred to the shooting as a tragedy, said Thursday that the grand jury heard from 42 witnesses, including Police Officer Anthony Carelli, who fired the fatal shots. She said Chamberlain had threatened the police officers and would not respond to telephone calls from the medical alert operators. Police officers forced their way into his apartment and fired a Taser and bean bags at Chamberlain to try to subdue him. Then they fired real bullets. The Taser is equipped with a video camera that recorded the incident, but it cuts off before the bullets were fired. The medical alert device also recorded audio (video below) of the encounter.
Chamberlain's family was allowed to review that evidence earlier and accused officers of acting too aggressively on an ailing man inside his own home who was not suspected of any crime. They also and said a police officer used a racial epithet when referring to Chamberlain. "He feared for his life," said Chamberlain's son, also named Kenneth. "He kept asking them to go away and that he didn't need their help." Chamberlain's niece, Tonya Greenhill, was outside the door with police asking them to let her talk to her uncle instead of forcing their way in, she said. "I heard my uncle begging and pleading them to please leave him alone. I could begin to almost hear fear in his voice." Greenhill, who lives in the building, said her uncle told them he was fine when they arrived but did not want to open the door. She said she insisted to police that they let him talk to his family but they refused. Chamberlain, a 68-year-old former Marine, had such severe respiratory problems he could not walk a flight of stairs, according to his medical records. The Life Station pendant he wore would alert their operators if he was in trouble. When it went off just before 5 a.m. that November morning, police and an ambulance were dispatched to the scene of his housing project in White Plains, north of New York City near Connecticut. A loudspeaker inside his apartment was used to try to contact him, but they got no response. David Chong, White Plains public safety commissioner, told reporters police force was justified because Chamberlain displayed knives when he cracked open the door to speak with officers. The videotape cuts off at the time of the shooting. Following the grand jury's decision not to charge the police officer, White Plains said it would review its procedures for dealing with emotionally disturbed people. In wake of the case of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed, black 17-year-old who was shot and killed in Sanford, Florida, by a neighborhood watch volunteer, the Chamberlain case gained national attention with more than 206,000 signing an online petition asking for District Attorney Janet DiFiore to charge the officers involved in the shooting with murder and civil rights violations.

Prentiss Drug Raid

August 2, 2011 After 10 years of incarceration, and seven years after a jury sentenced him to die, 30-year-old Cory Maye will soon be going home. Mississippi Circuit Court Judge Prentiss Harrell signed a plea agreement Friday morning in which Maye pled guilty to manslaughter for the 2001 death of Prentiss, Mississippi, police officer Ron Jones, Jr. Per the agreement, Harrell then sentenced Maye to 10 years in prison, time he has now already served. Maye will be taken to Rankin County, Mississippi, for processing and some procedural work. He is expected to be released within days.
Shortly after midnight on December 26, 2001, Cory Maye, then 21, was drifting off to sleep in his Prentiss duplex as the television blared in the background. Hours earlier, he had put his 18-month-old-daughter to sleep. He was soon awoken by the sounds of armed men attempting to break into his home. In the confusion, he fired three bullets from the handgun he kept in his nightstand. Maye would later testify that as soon as he realized the armed men in his home were police, he surrendered and put up his hands. There were three bullets still left in his gun. But Maye had just shot a cop. And not just any cop. He shot Officer Ron Jones, Jr. (pictured left) the son of Prentiss Police Chief Ron Jones, Sr. Cory Maye is black; and Ron Jones, Jr. was white. This was Jefferson Davis County, a part of Mississippi still divided by tense race relations. Maye was arrested and charged with capital murder, the intentional killing of a police officer.
As he'd later testify in court, Maye realized within seconds that he'd just shot a cop. A team of police officers from the area had received a tip from an informant -- later revealed to be a racist drug addict -- that there was a drug dealer living in the small yellow duplex on Mary Street. It now seems clear that the police were after Jamie Smith, who lived on the other side of the duplex, not Maye or his live-in girlfriend Chenteal Longino. Neither Maye nor Longino had a criminal record. Their names weren't on the search warrants.
Maye was initially found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. But due to the poor legal representation he received, his sentence was reduced to life. At the end of last year, the Mississippi Supreme Court ruled that Maye was to be given a new trial because the trial court didn’t allow his self-defense argument and because he was denied a trial in his home county.

Antioch Drug Raid

May 12, 2011 ANTIOCH, Calif. -- There is a new twist in an East Bay police scandal after a judge takes a second look at a lawsuit against two suspected dirty cops. It is a legal victory for the family of an Antioch man killed during a police drug raid and now they can move forward with a suit against two of the officers caught up in the growing Contra Costa County narcotics scandal. That surprise ruling came from a federal judge on Wednesday.
Judge Susan Illston had initially said there wasn't enough evidence to prove Timothy Mitchell was wrongfully killed during the police raid in Antioch. Police alleged they shot Mitchell after he reached for an officer’s gun. Then, two of those officers in that raid were linked to the growing Central Contra Costa County Narcotics Enforcement Team, or CNET, scandal. Now, Mitchell's family is wondering what really happened inside the apartment. Timothy Mitchell II was shot and killed in 2008, during a drug raid which was led by Commander Norman Wielsch and Danville police officers Louis Lombardi. Three years ago, a special team of narcotics officers burst through the door of an Antioch apartment in the hunt for a notorious drug dealer. Once inside, they shot and killed the man who lived there saying he went for an officer's gun. But fingerprints on 29-year-old Timothy Mitchell's body later revealed police had the wrong guy. A convicted felon had stolen Mitchell's identity and he had no real criminal history. "It's been an emotional journey...period. The fact that my son is gone and will never be back," said Paulette Mitchell, Timothy's mother. Paulette's son would have turned 33 years old on Friday.
"This is a young guy who didn't deserve to die," said John Burris, the Mitchell family attorney. Burris is representing Mitchell's family in a federal civil suit. In January, a judge dropped that case saying the officers committed a "justifiable act of homicide." Then Norman Wielsch, the narcotics team commander, and Louis Lombardi, a San Ramon officer charged with busting down Mitchell's door, were arrested in the growing CNET scandal. In a surprise twist this week, the same judge reversed her decision and ruled the civil case can move forward because of those arrests. Burris says the officers' credibility is now badly damaged. "I've always [...] suspected that this was a potential operation where you get drugs from a big time dope dealer and you ultimately get those drugs back and make money from them. It's where the drug enforcers become the drug dealers," said Burris.

In the above video, Wielsch and Lombardi exchange $9,800 in cash for a stolen pound of Methamphetamines. The video allegedly shows Wielsch and Butler selling what prosecutors said was a pound of methamphetamine stolen from a police evidence locker to government informant Carl Marino. Marino gave Wielsch and Butler $9,800 in marked bills (which are allegedly counted in the video) in exchange for the stolen methamphetamine. The exchange allegedly took place on February 15, 2011, and Wielsch and Butler were arrested the next morning.
Prosecutors say Wielsch and Lombardi made a habit of stealing and reselling drugs seized during busts. "We fully understand that his credibility will and would be an issue," said an attorney for Wielsch. He admits his client, Wielsch, was wrong on some fronts, but not this one. "To say, 'Oh, you did it in one situation, so they must be lying in the Mitchell situation,' doesn't really make any sense to me at all. I mean, these officers didn't go out and commit crime in every piece of law enforcement work they did," he said.
Louis Lombardi, 39, of Discovery Bay, who entered a guilty plea in January (2012) to stealing at least $40,000 in cash and guns while serving search warrants, broke down in an Oakland courtroom. He apologized to his family and fellow officers. San Ramon's police chief was there to hear it. Lombardi was sentenced on May 4, 2012, to spend three years in prison for his crimes.
"My issue is and always has been that we did not ever have the real story about how this young man was killed," said Burris. An attorney who has counseled Lombardi since his arrest, is not shocked by the reversal. "I think the judge out of an abundance of caution, and I think appropriately, has decided to reverse that decision and say that because there could be issues of credibility, let's let a jury hear testimony and make the decision as to whether there was any inappropriate behavior by any of the officers involved in that situation," he said. "I just have all along felt like something was rotten and that there were some things that have been covered up that will come to light," said Paulette. "So, I just want to see justice during this process with the officers involved in this CNET scandal." Mitchell's family says the emotional highs and lows are very hard to cope with. As for Mitchell's civil case, both sides will now present their arguments on officers' credibility and then a judge will decide whether or not it will go to trial. Another surprising twist in the CNET scandal emerged as Private investigator Chris Butler is said to have written a 34-page statement in which he claims he and officer Wielsch ran a brothel in a Pleasant Hill business park. Wielsch's attorney is strongly defending his client against that accusation. The attorney said, "He was saying in one part that there was a brothel that he started along with my client Wielsch, and I'm telling you, no, that's not true. That is absolutely not true. That is a Butler fairy tale." He says Butler may be making up the story to shave time off a possible prison term. On May 4, 2012, Christopher Butler, entered a guilty plea to seven counts, including conspiracy with the intention of distributing marijuana and methamphetamine to illegal wiretapping. Butler testified that former squad commander Norman Wielsch gave him marijuana and steroids, which he then gave to a colleague at his private eye firm. He also said he drove Wielsch to various spots where they took 586 grams of methamphetamine from evidence lockers. One of those pounds, he said, sold for $9,800. He admitted to taking $30,000 worth of drugs. Butler also admitted to setting up a massage parlor, which provided sexual services.

Mehserle 2011!

Eurie Stamps Sr.

March 10, 2011 FRAMINGHAM — The lawyer for the children of a man shot and killed by a Framingham Police officer said he will conduct his own investigation after the Middlesex district attorney's office yesterday ruled the shooting accidental. The lawyer called the description provided by Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone's office about how Officer Paul Duncan shot and killed Eurie Stamps Sr. on Jan. 5, 2011 implausible. The district attorney's office ruled that Duncan's shooting of the 68-year-old Stamps was an accident and not a crime and had occurred when Duncan tripped and fell. "This is a member of an elite SWAT team," said the attorney, who represents Stamps' four adult children. "One has to question, as reported by the district attorney, if that is, in fact, what happened. There's an air of implausibility." (Pictured left, Eurie Stamps Sr., 68, was shot and killed at his 26 Fountain St. home when police entered his home to serve a drug search warrant early Wednesday morning, 1/5/11) The Framingham Police Department, in a statement, expressed sorrow over Stamps' death. "Town Manager Julian M. Suso, Police Chief Steven B. Carl, and the Framingham Police Department express their deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to the Stamps family, for what was a tragedy in every sense of the word. The town of Framingham is deeply saddened by the loss of Mr. Stamps and Officer Duncan has been profoundly affected by this tragic accident." According to the district attorney's office, Framingham Police obtained a warrant on Jan. 4 to search 26 Fountain St. Detectives had conducted an investigation into reports that someone was selling cocaine from an apartment there. Police had made several undercover drug purchases from a man who the district attorney's office did not name in its report and from Joseph Bushfan, 20, who lived at 26 Fountain St., and who is Stamps' stepson. Prosecutors had previously said Dwayne Barrett of Framingham was the second target of the investigation. (Pictured left, the door to Eurie Stamps' 26 Fountain St. home after police entered his home and fatally shot him.) Police decided to use the department's SWAT team to serve the search warrant based on several factors, including the fact that Bushfan and the second man had violent criminal histories, the district attorney's office said. In particular, the second man was known to be a member of a local gang, and was a "known associate of an individual involved in the 2009 shooting of Framingham Officer Phil Hurton," the report said. Early on Jan. 5, as police were getting ready to serve the warrant, Bushfan came out of the apartment. Police took him into custody a few hundred feet from the apartment. The SWAT team then knocked on the door, announced they were there, and entered the apartment, the district attorney's office said. Later that day, a photographer took a photo of the badly damaged door, suggesting police broke it down. "Two Framingham Police officers made entry and arrived inside the kitchen, then spread out and scanned the room," the district attorney's office said. "They both observed movement and people on the other side of the kitchen, in the area of the hallway and in the back bedroom." Officers saw a large man, later identified as Stamps, come out of a back bedroom. They ordered him to lay on the floor. Through a cluttered hallway, police rushed to intercept another man, later identified as Devon Talbert, who they feared might be armed. Talbert refused to comply with their orders to put up his hands. Duncan, who is a member of the SWAT team, decided to check Stamps for weapons, and got beside him with his two hands on his rifle. Duncan lost his balance as he tried to step around Stamps, according to the DA's office, and fell backward. "While falling, Officer Duncan removed his left hand from his rifle, which was pointing down towards the ground, and put his left arm out to try to catch himself," said the district attorney's office. "As he did so, he heard a shot and then his body made impact with the wall. At that point, Officer Duncan, who was lying on the ground with his back against the wall, realized he was practically on top of Mr. Stamps and that Mr. Stamps was bleeding." Duncan yelled: "Man down, man down." Medics with the SWAT team began treating Stamps, who was then taken to MetroWest Medical Center, where he was declared dead. Duncan, a former police officer in Mendon and Shrewsbury, has been on paid administrative leave since the shooting. He joined the Framingham department in 2006. "Officer Duncan told another officer on scene within moments of the incident that he had stumbled and lost his balance while moving to get in a better position, and as he was falling, his gun fired," the district attorney's office said. The state medical examiner's office determined that Stamps died from a single gunshot wound to his upper body. The shooting does "not rise to the level of criminal conduct, and the shooting death of Eurie Stamps was an accident," the district attorney's office said. Leone called the incident extremely tragic and sad. "I have met with Mr. Stamps' family regarding our findings and determinations and discussed with them the legal obligations that I and this office have under the law in police-involved fatal shootings." The case has now been referred back to the Framingham Police Department, which has the option of conducting its own investigation. Despite the findings, the lawyer and the attorney who represents Stamps' wife, Norma Bushfan, said they plan to continue asking questions. "When an innocent man dies this way at the hands of the police, there really are no excuses that can satisfactorily explain away such a tragedy," said the attorney. "Mr. Stamps' civil rights were surely violated, and those who are responsible must be held accountable for his death." The attorney said, "We believe the DA's report leaves unanswered several critical questions about this incident. We seek a full accounting of what went so terribly wrong here, and we do not yet have that. "The attorney sees inconsistencies in the district attorney's report. He said it does not make sense that Stamps was on the floor, yet he was shot in the face. He also said the report was "too general," and the lawyers' investigation will be more thorough. "It will focus on details," said the attorney. "The report doesn't mention any key facts. It makes it sound like there were two (SWAT team members) in the house, when there were 18 SWAT team members and police officers in the house." He also said no drugs were ever sold from the apartment. Any drug deals happened outside, he said. Also, police had Bushfan in custody before the SWAT team went inside. He said they should have changed their plan once their target was in custody. "They stormed this house, which was occupied by a 68-year-old disabled MBTA mechanic laying in bed in his pajamas watching a basketball game," he said. If the district attorney's report is true, then it raises another set of questions about the training of Duncan, who has been a SWAT team member since 2008, and the SWAT team as a whole. "At the minimum, we have a SWAT team that is poorly trained," he said. "The gun was found to have no defects. The report said the gun went off, it would be fair to say the trigger was pulled." The lawyers have requested all documents related to the investigation, and they said they plan to interview everyone connected with the investigation under oath, he said. "We have not filed a lawsuit yet," he said. "It's important we have as many facts as we can before we file (a lawsuit) in federal court." Bushfan and Talbert, both 20, were arrested by police that night and face several drug charges. Bushfan is currently serving an 18-month sentence in the Billerica House of Correction after pleading guilty two months ago to charges in connection with two 2008 robberies in Cambridge.

"But these officers pursued that goal by corrupting the justice system, because when it was hard to do their job the way the Constitution requires, they let the ends justify their means." -David Nahmias, the United States attorney To explain his absence in the days following the shooting by police of Kathyrn Johnston, Atlanta Police Chief Richard Pennington told reporters that he was out of town for Thanksgiving and unable to get a flight back to Atlanta. AJC reported that Pennington was in New York for the Thanksgiving holiday. Delta offers approximately 40 daily non-stop flights between NYC and Atlanta. AirTran offers approximately 18. Were all 58 flights booked? November 24, 2009 Just six weeks before he’s scheduled to be replaced by the city’s next mayor, Atlanta Police Chief Richard Pennington has at last publicly apologized for the police killing of 92-year-old Kathryn Johnston. Johnston was gunned down on November 21, 2006 while defending her home from police officers executing a bogus drug warrant. “I take full responsibility for what happened,” said Pennington to a memorial gathering at Lindsay Street Baptist Church, not far from Johnston’s former home. It’s not at all clear what Pennington means by “full responsibility.” Responsibility for the killing? The cover-up? For not cutting short his vacation and returning to Atlanta immediately upon finding out his officers gunned down a 92-year-old woman in her home? Is he going to resign? Is he going to lock himself in jail as penance? Is he going to return the three-years of city paychecks he’s been drawing since the killing? I know. I know. I probably shouldn’t be too hard on Pennington. After all, it’s clear the guy’s hurting a lot inside. As he explained at the memorial yesterday, “[w]e went through some difficult times and no one felt it more than I did.” Did you catch that? NO ONE felt it more than Pennington. The only thing that hurts more than getting shot five times is being a lousy police chief.

Corrupt Killer Cops

Ex-Alanta Police Officer Arthur Tessler (pictured below, right) in May 2008 court proceeding. An appeals court on [January 15, 2009] overturned the conviction of a former Atlanta police officer sentenced to prison for lying to FBI agents about the killing of a 92-year-old woman during a botched drug raid. Kathryn Johnston (pictured below, left), a 92 year old black woman, was shot 39 times as plainclothes Atlanta narcotics officers broke into her home on Nov. 26, 2006. The warrant was obtained using false information and the officers involved planted evidence afterward to cover up their lies. In tossing out Arthur Tesler's conviction on the state charges, the Georgia Court of Appeals said Fulton County prosecutors failed to prove where the lying took place. "Its admitted failure requires us to reverse Tesler's conviction," Chief Judge Yvette Miller wrote. A Fulton County Superior Court judge sentenced Tesler to 4 1/2 years in prison and six months probation last May. Tesler has also pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges. Kathryn Johnston was killed by a barrage of bullets fired by officers who stormed into her home in November 2006 with a no-knock warrant. Police originally said officers had gone to Kathryn Johnston's northwest Atlanta home in 2006 after an informant bought drugs there. But after finding none, officers tried to cover up the mistake by planting baggies of marijuana, prosecutors said. Officer Jason R. Smith planted three bags of marijuana, which had been recovered earlier in the day in an unrelated search, in the basement. He called a confidential informant and instructed him to pretend he had made the drug buy described in the affidavit for the search warrant. A former Atlanta police officer testified Thursday that narcotics officers routinely lied under oath when seeking search warrants a practice that led to police killing a 92-year-old woman. Former Detective Gregg Junnier (pictured below, right) told a Fulton County jury that detectives would tell judges that they had verified their informants had bought cocaine from dealers by searching them for drugs before the buy took place. “I have never seen anyone searched before they go into the house I’ve never seen that done even though officers always swear to it,” Junnier said. “It’s done that way in 90 percent of the warrants that are written.” Officers Jason R. Smith and Gregg Junnier, pleaded guilty to state and federal charges. Tesler, who did not fire a shot, faces sentencing next month after pleading guilty to a charge of conspiracy to violate civil rights resulting in death Tesler was in Johnston's backyard when plainclothes officers burst in through the front door the night of Nov. 21, 2006, using a special "no-knock" warrant to search for drugs. Johnston fired a single shot from a rusty revolver at the intruders, but hit no one, and officers fired 39 bullets, hitting the woman five or six times, prosecutors said. Tesler's lawyer, William McKenney, called Thursday's ruling "terrific news" and told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he hopes it will help at Tesler's federal sentencing.
