"Lying is the Norm for US Police Officers!"



Ferguson, MO ~ USA -- Ferguson police Chief tells ABC's Steve Osunsami there were visible injuries "His face was swollen," he said. "So he'd obviously been hit or punched or something like that." But Brown's family say Wilson appears to be unharmed on videos obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, showing Wilson leaving the Ferguson Police Department just two hours after the shooting. "The lack of injuries on the officer's face demonstrates that they exaggerated his injuries," Crump said.

Cops that Sexually Offend! - Part VII




March 31, 2009

"BRIDGETON - Suspended Millville police officer Robert Vanaman admitted to a judge Monday afternoon that he wasn’t acting in self-defense when he shot his wife twice in the chest almost three years ago... “I lost it,” Vanaman said. “I over-reacted and I shot her two times.” Vanaman’s guilty plea came abruptly Monday afternoon as attorneys were preparing to begin another round of jury selection... Vanaman pleaded guilty to one second-degree count of manslaughter and one fourth-degree count of evidence tampering. He told Herman that he cut himself with the blade of the knife after he shot his wife."

Darrius Clipps


March 27, 2009

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A rookie New Orleans police officer has found himself on the other side of the law. That's after a number of home invasions, thought to have been committed by a police impersonator. Officer Darrius Clipps is charged with aggravated burglary and sexual assault. Police were investigating three cases this week where a man dressed as an officer forced his way into a home, ordered women to undress and asked them about drugs. After a composite sketch came forward of the suspect, several officers recognized Clipps.

New Orleans Police Superintendent Warren Riley says Clipps was on the force about a year. He Graduated from the police academy in April 2008. Clipps is accused of bursting into homes, demanding drugs and money, and asking the homeowners to take off their clothes. "The community should be alarmed and highly disappointed by this, as we are," Riley said in an early morning press conference at police headquarters.

One witness even remembered Clipps' (pictured left) badge number. He resigned after his arrest. Clipps has been booked with malfeasance in office, sexual battery, false imprisonment with a weapon, simple and aggravated kidnapping, aggravated burglary, and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.

The home invasions occurred Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in the Mid-City neighborhood. Each time, police said, the man ordered a woman to strip, then asked about drugs.

Police say Clipps admitted two of three home invasions before resigning. He told investigators he was making a personal internal investigation into narcotics, Riley said.

Stephen Kenneth Olenchak


December 9, 2010

Stephen Olenchak reacts as he hears his bond has been set at $100,000, Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2010, at the Broward County Courthouse in Ft. Lauderdale. The former Davie Police officer was convicted last week of one count of sexual battery but could be headed for a retrial because of possible jury misconduct.FORT LAUDERDALE, FL. — A Davie police officer convicted last week of drugging and assaulting a family member was ordered released on $100,000 bond Tuesday until the court can determine whether he deserves a new trial based on possible jury misconduct. Broward Circuit Judge Stanton Kaplan also granted the defense attorney's request to question the six-member jury next week about whether any of them downloaded information about "rape trauma syndrome" from the Internet and brought it to the jury room during deliberations. After the verdict was read Thursday, a courtroom clerk checked the jury room and found printouts about sexual assault and "rape trauma syndrome" downloaded from the website Wikipedia. The printouts were not part of the evidence presented at trial.

The clerk immediately informed the judge, who then told the defense attorney and prosecutors. "I don't remember any of the lawyers talking about rape trauma syndrome," the judge said. "I told [the jurors] not to do any investigations on their own."

One of the officer's defense attorneys, says the court would likely grant the request for a new trial after both sides question the jurors next week. "He's in good spirits," he said of Stephen Olenchak. "He is confident he will get a new trial and that he will be acquitted."

Olenchak, 36, was arrested in March 2009 by Davie police on charges he drugged and raped a family member, then 19, while his wife and 4-year-old son slept next to them in the same bed. When he took the stand last week, Olenchak gave a strikingly different version of events, saying the young woman seduced him while he lay sleeping.

Jurors convicted Olenchak of a sexual battery charge concerning digital penetration and acquitted him of a charge concerning penile penetration.

During Tuesday's hearing, his attorney requested Olenchak be released on $5,000 bond. Assistant State Attorney Victoria Watson insisted on a much higher bond of $100,000, saying the officer could be considered a flight risk.

"Right now it's all speculation who printed those documents and if they even read them," Watson said. "If bond is granted, we would ask for $100,000 bond. He has been convicted. He's looking at up to 15 years in prison. His father has a pilot's license." At the prosecutor's request, Olenchak will be put on house arrest and wear an ankle monitor upon his release.

Olenchak's attorney argued the officer is not a flight risk. "He has no intention of going anywhere," his attorney said. "He wants to clear his name. He wants to clear his family's name."

Earlier, the judge asked Olenchak how he was doing. "I miss my family, your honor," said Olenchak, cuffed and wearing a red prison uniform. He smiled and glanced over at his parents, siblings and girlfriend, who kept close watch from the back of the courtroom. Olenchak's family declined to comment on Tuesday.

DAVIE — An attorney for a Davie police officer facing charges he raped a young woman while his wife slept in the same bed says he'll be ready for trial in the next month or two. Stephen Olenchak, an 11-year veteran with the Davie Police Department, has pleaded not guilty. "This has gone on long enough," his attorney told the media after a brief hearing on Thursday. "He's innocent of the crime he's accused of doing." Broward Circuit Judge Carlos Rodriguez set the next hearing for Sept. 16, 2010.

Davie officers arrested Olenchak in March 2009 on sexual assault charges. According to the arrest report, a woman told investigators that Olenchak (pictured left) brought his wife a drink before going to bed March 22, 2009. After his wife fell asleep, he brought the other woman something to drink, the report says.

Corrupt Justice™ is not naming the woman because she is the victim of an alleged sex crime. The report says Olenchak fondled and had intercourse with the woman, who said she did not consent and was not coherent enough to call out for help. Police said they investigated whether the drinks were spiked with drugs.

Olenchak, 36, was put on administrative leave without pay in May 2009. He will remain on leave pending the outcome of the case.

March 26, 2009

Update: March 29, 2008 - Officer Stephen Kenneth Olenchak, 34, was arrested for two counts of rape. According to the arrest report, the victim told investigators that Olenchak brought his wife a drink before going to bed on Sunday. When his wife fell asleep, he then brought the victim something to drink, according to the report.

It turns out the victim is a minor! Olenchak, 34, is a 12-year veteran of the Davie police force. He faces charges of sexual battery on a person over 12 years old. Davie Police spokesman Lt. Bill Coyne said police are investigating whether drugs were used in the drinks. According to the report, Olenchak then fondled and had intercourse with the victim, who said she did not consent and was not coherent enough to call out to Olenchak's wife for help.

According to an affidavit, Olenchak's wife told police that her husband had on several occasions fondled a girl in their home, once allegedly drugging her.

DAVIE - A Davie police officer has been charged with two counts of rape for allegedly attacking a woman in bed while his wife lay asleep next to them, according to an arrest report released today. Officer Stephen Kenneth Olenchak, 34, was arrested Thursday and booked into the Broward County Main Jail. He has since been released on $10,000 bond.

Police spokesman Lt. Bill Coyne would not disclose any information about the victim, other than to say she is not a minor.

The victim told police that Olenchak encouraged her on Sunday to get in bed with him and his wife, saying, "I want you to sleep in my bed with me tonight."

According to the complaint, Olenchak got his wife a Crystal Light soft drink before bedtime, and she fell asleep "earlier than usual."

Olenchak then got the victim something to drink.

Coyne said police are investigating whether drugs were used in the drinks.

The victim said that while the sexual assault was taking place, Olenchak's wife got up and went to the bathroom, but she "looked like a zombie," the report states.

Investigators talked to the victim and Olenchak's wife on Thursday, then arrested Olenchak.

Olenchak, who has been with the police department 11 years, is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

Mike Burgess


March 24, 2009

FAIRVIEW, Okla. - (AP Wire) A former western Oklahoma sheriff was sentenced to 79 years in prison Tuesday (March 24, 2009) for using his power over female drug court defendants to force them to have sex with him. Former Custer County Sheriff Mike Burgess, 56, apologized to two victims but maintained that he was innocent of allegations that he had also abused others. Defense attorney Steve Huddleston described the sentence as "way too harsh" and said an appeal is planned.

A jury in Major County — where the case was moved because of pretrial publicity — found Burgess guilty in January of 13 felony counts, including five counts of second-degree rape. But jurors acquitted him of 23 other counts, including second-degree rape, forcible sodomy and rape by instrumentation.

Prosecutors alleged that Burgess (pictured left) sexually abused inmates and drug court defendants; he had been a member of a team controlling a drug court. Several female offenders testified that they feared they would be sent to prison if they did not provide sexual favors to him. Burgess was convicted of rape charges involving two female drug court defendants, one of whom alleged that he had sex with her on multiple occasions at a motel. Burgess was convicted of sexually assaulting her in his car after arresting her on a drug violation, but he was acquitted of the charges related to the motel incidents.

The jury that convicted Burgess had recommended a sentence of 94 years.

"I think it was harsh in the sense that he won 23 of the 36 counts," Huddleston said. "It's basically a life sentence. I don't think it calls for a life sentence," he said.

'Clear message'

Besides the rape counts, Burgess was convicted of three counts of bribery by a public official, two counts of forcible sodomy and one count each of kidnapping, sexual battery and engaging in a pattern of criminal offenses. The sexual battery conviction involved a female former sheriff's deputy he was accused of groping. Burgess also was fined $15,000.

Special prosecutor Mike Boring said he was satisfied with the sentence but regretted not obtaining convictions on the other counts.

"In the long run we're satisfied," Boring said. "The clear message is that if somebody chooses to engage themselves to act in a capacity with the public, they take on the incumbent responsibility to engage in that public service with duty, integrity and honesty, to do what is right to those over whom they have charge."

Under state law, an inmate cannot legally consent to sexual relations with a jailer or anyone else who controls the conditions of the prisoner's confinement. But Huddleston contended that drug court defendants were controlled by a judge, not Burgess, and that the women were hoping a verdict against Burgess in criminal court would lead to a payday for them in a civil case.

Allegations against Burgess surfaced after a federal lawsuit was filed against him on behalf of 12 former jail inmates in 2007. It alleged that sheriff's employees had inmates engage in wet T-shirt contests and offered cigarettes to those who would flash their breasts.

The plaintiffs' attorney, Greg Williams of Tulsa, said completion of the criminal case will allow the lawsuit to move forward.


Lt. Thomas A. Healy Jr.


Posted May 18, 2010 @ 05:20 AM

BOSTON — A former Suffolk County jail guard accused of groping a female inmate in 2008 will spend no time behind bars after reaching a plea agreement with prosecutors. Lt. Thomas A. Healy Jr., 43, of Quincy (pictured below) pleaded guilty to a charge of assault and battery, instead of a charge of having sexual relations with a prisoner, a felony punishable by five years in prison.

Suffolk Superior Court Judge Thomas E. Connolly sentenced Healy to two years of probation and 100 hours of community service, and ordered him to write a letter outlining the incident. The letter will be used for training corrections officers, said Jake Wark, spokesman for the Suffolk County district attorney. Healy’s trial had been scheduled to start Monday. He pleaded guilty May 3, 2010.

Healy, a 17-year sheriff’s department veteran, was initially charged with rape. A grand jury later concluded he groped the inmate, but it found no evidence of forcible sex. The incident occurred Nov. 12 in a medical unit of the Suffolk County jail in Boston.

Prosecutors said a male inmate told prison officials he saw Healy make “inappropriate contact” with the woman, prompting an investigation by Boston police. “The surveillance shows him putting his hands down the inmate’s shirt and fondling her chest,” Assistant District Attorney Holly Broadbent said in a statement.

Healy’s attorney could not be reached Monday. Healy was suspended without pay after the incident and faced a disciplinary hearing. A sheriff’s spokesman said Monday that Healy no longer works for the department.

March 16, 2009

BOSTON — District Attorney Daniel F. Conley announced today that a corrections officer from Quincy was scheduled to be arraigned today on charges he raped a female prisoner. Prosecutors contend that Healy, 42, groped and raped a woman in her cell at the Suffolk County Jail.

Conley said. “It’s a shameful abuse of authority and will be punished as such.”

“This was an investigation initiated by the Sheriff’s Investigative Division,” Assistant District Attorney Holly Broadbent, told Clerk Magistrate Connie Wong of the probe that led to Healy’s arrest. Broadbent said members of the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department “received information from a male inmate that had seen inappropriate contact between the defendant and a female inmate.”

Lt. Thomas A. Healy Jr., (pictured left) who has worked for the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department for the past 17 years, was indicted last month for an incident that allegedly happened last Nov. 12, 2008. At the time of the incident, Healy was assigned to the House of Correction’s medical unit, where male and female prisoners were housed. After learning of the allegations, Broadbent said, Sheriff’s investigators pulled surveillance recordings of that unit.

“That video surveillance reflects that the defendant had inappropriate sexual contact with the female inmate,” she continued. “The surveillance shows him putting his hands down the inmate’s shirt and fondling her chest.”

Healy was suspended without pay. Healy was arrested by Boston Police on Nov. 25, 2008 and arraigned in Roxbury District Court the same day. The Feb. 26, 2009 indictment moves his case to Superior Court, where it will be adjudicated.

Healy will return to court on April 29, 2009. His trial was tentatively scheduled for Dec. 15, 2009. He is represented by attorney Frank O’Brien. Defense attorney Stephen Pfaff said in November that Healy was looking forward to his day in court.

Lieutenant THOMAS HEALY, Jr. (D.O.B. 12/31/66), of Quincy is charged with having sexual relations with an inmate – a felony punishable by up to five years in prison – on Nov. 12, 2008.

That's their 15-year-old son, Anthony (red shirt, pointing) and 9-year-old Patrick Dunakin (facing inward). On her far left is Niki Romans, another "n-word" female dog, who was married to Sgt. Ervin Romans (see below).) They kill and incarcerate black men, yet sleep and bear children by "n-word" female dogs.

A Good One!


Published: Thursday, September 1, 2011



North Miami Beach police have launched an investigation after an officer shot and killed a man who was prowling through a neighborhood carrying a toy gun. The incident began at around 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday after neighbors reported seeing Ernest Vassell(pictured above, center) walking around with a rifle and pointing it at a dog, local media reported. Police said they shouted orders at Vassell - which neighbors heard - but when he turned toward the cops, an officer shot him. Vassell was flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he later died.

Meanwhile, cops discovered that the gun was a realistic-looking fake. Family members told the media that Vassell, 56, was mentally disabled from a fall he suffered as a child. His sisters said he didn't own a toy gun and had never been violent before. "They murdered him in cold blood for a toy gun!" Vassell's older sister Claire Harding told the station. "That's no reason for you to kill somebody!" North Miami police maintained that the gun appeared to be real.



The department followed standard procedure and placed the officer who pulled the trigger on paid leave while they investigated the shooting, police spokeswoman Maj. Kathy Katerman told the local media. The officer was not identified.

Harding said her family is waiting for answers. "They should train these police officers better," she told the media. "This is ridiculous, they just go around killing people for nothing."

Katrina Indictments!


June 11, 2010

Five current or former New Orleans police officers were indicted in federal court Friday in the shooting death of a man in the days after Hurricane Katrina and burning of his body. Federal prosecutors allege that one NOPD officer fatally shot 31-year-old Henry Glover without justification, and that other officers burnt Glover's body and left it in a torched car beside a levee. The 11-count indictment also alleges two other officers lied and helped cover up the incident. The indictments are an extraordinary blow to a long-troubled police force reeling from revelations in another post-Katrina fatal police shooting, that one at the Danziger Bridge in eastern New Orleans. Warren, a rookie cop at the time of the incident, is accused of shooting Glover to death. He faces life in prison if convicted. The charge -- deprivation of rights under color of law -- is a capital offense, though the U.S. attorney general would have to make the decision to seek the death penalty, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said Friday. Warren is also charged with using a weapon during the commission of a crime, a felony that carries a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison. Warren left the force in 2008.



(Those indicted in the Henry Glover case are, from top left, Robert Italiano, Travis McCabe, Greg McRae, Dwayne Scheuermann and David Warren. The car is the one in which Glover's body was found on the Algiers Point levee shortly after Hurricane Katrina. Note: The three current cops are Lt. Travis McCabe, Lt. Dwayne Scheuermann and Officer Greg McRae. )

Scheuermann and McRae are each charged with five felony counts. They allegedly beat two men who took Glover to a makeshift police compound in search of assistance. The grand jury also determined that Scheuermann and McRae burnt Glover's body and obstructed a federal investigation by destroying evidence. If convicted, they each face up to 60 years in prison.



The government alleges that Italiano and McCabe covered up the incident by fabricating a report with the intent to mislead any further investigation. The duo is also charged with lying to FBI agents about the case. McCabe is also charged with perjury.
Italiano, if convicted, could be sentenced up to 25 years in prison. McCabe faces a maximum sentence of 30 years if he is convicted. Attorneys for each of the indicted men could not be reached or did not return calls for comment Friday. Italiano left the NOPD in April 2006 and has been employed as an investigator with the Louisiana attorney general's office. An office spokeswoman said Friday that he was removed from his position Friday following the indictment. McCabe, McRae and Scheuermann were suspended without pay Friday from the NOPD, pending an investigation of the matter. Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas released a statement Friday saying he was unable to comment on the case because it is an ongoing investigation.

The Henry Glover (pictured left) incident played out on Sept. 2, 2005 in several locations in Algiers, an area spared from floodwaters but wracked by wind and water damage. Glover of Algiers and another man allegedly ran toward the rear of a strip mall near the corner of Texas Drive and Seine Street. Warren and his partner were guarding a NOPD satellite bureau in the complex. At some point, Warren fired a rifle from a second-floor balcony, according to NOPD documents. The federal government says that bullet hit Glover. Warren's attorney has said his client perceived he was in danger when he shot his rifle, and furthermore that Warren never knew whether the bullet hit anyone. A stranger, William Tanner was nearby and responded to the cries that a man was wounded. Tanner said he, along with Glover's brother Edward King and Glover's friend Bernard Calloway, put Glover in the back of Tanner's Chevy Malibu. Tanner, not knowing Glover or the circumstances of the shooting, decided the local hospital was too far away. He chose to drive to nearby Paul B. Habans Elementary School, where the NOPD's SWAT unit had set up a makeshift compound. There, McRae and Scheuermann allegedly beat Tanner and King. Tanner said the group was handcuffed and accused of being looters. Tanner said he last saw his car, with Glover in the backseat, driven away from the compound by an officer with flares sticking out of his pocket. Another officer followed in a separate vehicle.

Federal prosecutors allege Scheuermann and McRae seized the vehicle and set it on fire, with Glover inside. The car ended up scorched on the Algiers batture, behind the NOPD's 4th District station and a U.S. Border Patrol office. Glover's burnt remains were recovered weeks later. Glover's mother, Edna, filed a missing-person report on Nov. 16, 2005, at the NOPD's 4th District station. She gave details of the shooting of her son, including the time and place it occurred.

Weeks after Edna Glover's complaint, on Dec. 2, 2005, Sgt. Purnella Simmons signed a "miscellaneous incident" report describing the shooting by David Warren. The report attempted to explain why Warren fired his rifle at a suspected looter. It mentions that the incident was reported to Lt. Italiano and his supervisor, then-Capt. David Kirsch, who both deemed the shooting justified. Italiano approved and signed off on the report, which is hyperlinked by Corrupt Justice™. A source close to the investigation has said the report was altered after Simmons signed it.

The indictment alleges that Italiano and McCabe, in November or December 2005, "authored and submitted a false and misleading official report" to impede an investigation into Glover's death. McCabe, according to the indictment, lied to the FBI in saying he wrote the report with Simmons and participated in interviews with her. Italiano also allegedly lied to the FBI. He knew of the both the missing-person report filed by Edna Glover and of the "miscellaneous incident" report on the shooting -- as well of the connection between the incidents and the burnt body on the levee -- but pretended he did not know they were related, the indictment states.

The federal investigation began following the publication of an article in late 2008 by The Nation and ProPublica that questioned whether police played a role in the burning of Glover's body. Glover's death, and the alleged police cover-up, became the focus of a series of articles in the media. Shortly after the initial media attention, the Department of Justice began looking into the case. Dozens of NOPD officers, including rookie cops, captains and supervisors, among them former Superintendents Warren Riley and Eddie Compass, testified before a federal grand jury. The indictments unsealed Friday, however, do not signal the end of the Glover investigation, Letten said. "You can bank on this: that the investigation will continue. It will continue aggressively and fairly," he said. Letten held the news conference Friday afternoon on the steps of the federal courthouse. He was joined by David Welker, special agent in charge of the FBI's New Orleans field office, and several federal prosecutors.

Minutes after the news conference, Warren appeared in court. He stood before the judge, his head slightly bowed, his jaw clenched tightly. Shackles bound his hands and feet. His attorney told U.S. Magistrate Louis Moore that Warren wished to waive his rights. He did not enter a plea. He declined to comment following the hearing. Warren is due in court again on Thursday for a detention hearing. Letten had noted that Warren will be held without bond, but declined to say what facility would house him. Several other of Warren's former colleagues appeared in recent weeks in the same courtroom, facing other criminal charges. Five officers have pleaded guilty in federal court in recent months to participating in a cover-up of the events on the Danziger Bridge. Officers have acknowledged in that case that cops conducted a wide-scale cover-up, planted a gun, coached and coordinated statements in secret meetings, and lied to both investigators and the public. More charges are expected in that case. In addition, the FBI has at least six other criminal probes under way into the department, most involving alleged misconduct after Katrina.

OPD Chronic Incompetence!


January 7, 2010

OAKLAND, CA -- A blistering report released January 6, 2010 by the Oakland Police Department, describes in critical detail, what it called an "ineffective and poorly managed" manhunt for Lovelle Mixon on March 21, 2009. Mixon was engaged in a gun battle with Oakland Police Officers, including Sgt. Pat Gonzales, which ultimately killed four police officers. The report, the result of an outside investigation, documents instances of poor communication, bad planning, failure to meet department policy and disregard for standard public safety measures by OPD officers on the day four officers intent on inflicting the deprivation of life, lost their own.








"The Report!"




Independent Board of Inquiry Into the Oakland Police Department -


December 27, 2009

OAKLAND — A sister of Lovelle Mixon (pictured left) who was inside the East Oakland apartment when Mixon engaged in combat with OPD, before being killed by Oakland SWAT sergeant Pat Gonzalez, March 21 (2009) has filed a claim against the city. The claim requests payment for her and her grandmother in an amount of more than $10,000 after she was wounded by a stun grenade. The claim outlines her being subjected to hours of subsequent mistreatment by police. The claim filed on behalf of Mixon's sister, who was 16 at the time of the shootings, said she was aware Mixon had entered the apartment earlier, but unaware of his exact location when police raided the apartment.

Mixon's sister was leaving a bathroom when police entered and threw an "explosive device directly at her," the claim says. The device struck the sister's left leg, exploded, and left a serious burn, the claim says. The sister subsequently fled the house where, according to the claim, an officer accused her of "hiding this Nigger!" The claim further alleges one officer (Patrick Gonzales) said unless she said who else was inside the apartment, "I swear to God, I'll blow your head off."

The sister was never charged with a crime. The girl was then taken to the hospital where police repeatedly interrupted her conversations with a doctor as she was treated, the claim alleges. She was then questioned further at police headquarters until 2 or 3 a.m., the claim says. The sister says at no point was she told she did not have to answer questions nor was she offered a lawyer. The claim was filed Sept. 18, 2009 and seeks damages in excess of $10,000 for, among other things, bodily injury, pain and suffering, emotional distress and medical expenses.

The Oakland attorney representing the sister, was out of the country last week, but said in an e-mail that litigation is under consideration. "Whatever Lovelle Mixon may have done (and I am certainly not defending that), I don't believe there can be any justification for the way this young woman was endangered and, subsequently, treated," the attorney wrote. He filed the claim on behalf of the sister, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, and Mary Mixon, the grandmother and legal guardian of the girl.

Jew Alex Katz, a spokesman for City Attorney John Russo, said the issue is still pending, adding, "We will give (the claim) the attention that it merits." Officer Jeff Thomason, the Police Department's spokesman, said some of the allegations in question have been investigated and will be covered in the January report. Others, he said, are relatively new and are still under investigation.

A Day of Reckoning!


The Oakland Police Version of Events

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Oakland (who have a proven history of lying, as well as making false statements) say Lovelle Mixon shot and killed of three police officers and seriously wounded a fourth in Oakland, Calif., on March 21, 2009. Mr. Mixon was later slain in a gunfight with police in which two officers were killed. Authorities say 26-year-old Mixon opened fire on Officer John Hege and 40-year-old Sgt. Mark Dunakin after they pulled him over during a routine traffic stop around 1 p.m. on 21 March 09, killing Dunakin.


New Orleans Police Department(January 1, 2009 Murder of Unarmed Black Man, shot nine (9) times in the back!!) In the Black Community, a routine traffic stop is synonomous with a death sentence.


Mixon allegedly fled after shooting the first two officers following the traffic stop, then shot two more after a SWAT team entered an apartment in which he was hiding. Mixon was killed by officers, police said. Oakland Police said Mr. Mixon had a no-bail warrant for his arrest on charges of violating parole (a very minor offense in California). He had previous convictions in Alameda County for grand theft and possession of marijuana.

The first shooting happened in the 7400 block of MacArthur Boulevard about 1:16 p.m. when Dunakin and Hege were shot with a handgun during a traffic stop. Dozens of Oakland police, Highway Patrol officers and Alameda County sheriff's deputies cordoned off stretches of blocks around 73rd and 74th avenues and MacArthur Boulevard.

Then they heard that the suspect was in an apartment around the corner on 74th Avenue. Police surrounded the building and, after the Oakland SWAT team tried to communicate with the suspect, they entered the building. Mixon opened fire with an assault weapon, police said. Sakai and Romans were fatally wounded and another officer was grazed in the head. Other officers killed Mixon. No other occupants in the complex were injured.



Update: March 24, 2009

The wounded Officer turns out to be Sgt. Pat Gonzales. According to Oakland Officials, "When SWAT officers, acting on a tip, later stormed the nearby apartment, Mixon opened fire with an AK-47 assault rifle, (which fires a 7.62mm round) killing Sgt. Ervin Romans, 43, and Sgt. Daniel Sakai, 35, and (this is a lie ->) wounding Sgt. Gonzales before other officers shot him to death."

"A third officer, grazed by a bullet, was treated and released," said [Oakland] police spokesman Jeff Thomason.



C.J. Note: The 7.62mm round has alot of kick, high recoil and its weight overrides its velocity. This means it is more inaccurate then smaller caliber rounds, but penetration by the bullet is greatly increased. The 7.62mm rounds weight will carry it through even the strongest of bullet resistant vests and its size makes for devestating entry and exit wounds. A shot from an 7.62mm AK-47 will tumble inside the target, doing considerable damage and transferring all of its monentum to the target. There's a very good chance Sgt. Gonzales killed Mixon, making it his fourth kill as an OPD Officer!


B.A.R.T. Police, Racism, Homicide(Video of The Oakland New Year's Day (2009) Transit Shooting ) OAKLAND — A Black man died after a [White] BART [Police] officer [shot him in the back] early Thursday at the Fruitvale station, authorities said. The man was identified by his family and authorities as Oscar Grant, 22. The shooting occurred about 2:15 a.m. on the platform where a Dublin-Pleasanton train from San Francisco had stopped, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.

Tension between police and the community has risen steadily since the fatal shooting of unarmed 22-year-old Oscar Grant(pictured left) by a transit police officer at an Oakland train station on Jan. 1, 2009.

That former Bay Area Rapid Transit officer, Johannes Mehserle, has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for March 23, 2009. Violent protests erupted on the streets of Oakland in the weeks after Grant's death, further inflaming tensions.

See: B.A.R.T. Police Officer convicted of lesser offense of manslaughter!


The officers who lost the gun battle are as follows (from left to right): Erv Romans; John Hege; Sgt. Mark Dunakin; and Dan Sakai.

Oakland police announced the death of 41-year-old Officer John Hege earlier Sunday (March 22) but later said that Hege was being kept alive while a final decision was made about donating his organs.

Other Allegations

In 2007, Mixon became a "person of interest" for the murder of Ramon Stevens, a 42-year-old who was shot on the corner of 86th and E. 14th Street. Stevens' sister, Felicia Stevens said Sunday she knows it was Mixon who killed her brother but police said they could not find any witnesses at the time to prove Mixon was the shooter.

"There is no direct evidence that Mixon committed that crime, the murder of Ramon Stevens," said Oakland Police Det. Lou Cruz. "There is nobody saying I saw Lovell Mixon shoot Ramon Stevens, not one witness." But Stevens, who's nephew is Mixon's cousin, said she knows of one person who saw the shooting but who refused to step forward. She said her brother owed Mixon $30 for what she thinks were drugs at the time of the shooting.


Reaping what you sow!





"Reaping what you sow means that if you do bad things to people, bad things will happen to you, or good things if you do good things. It is normally used when someone has done something bad."

Gary King, Jr.

Oakland Police Officer, Sgt. Pat Gonzales (a Mexican), a 10-year veteran, shot and killed Gary King Jr., 20, (pictured left) about 5 p.m. Thursday, September 20, 2007 near 54th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way in North Oakland (California). Gonzales told investigators King started to reach down toward his waistband. Gonzales tried to stop the movement and felt the gun. Gonzales, a department firearms instructor and SWAT team member, was cleared of any wrongdoing in the previous two shootings, police said. All three persons shot by Officer Gonzales have been African-American males.

Andrew Moppin-Buckskin

Officer Hector Jimenez (a Mexican) graduated from the Oakland (California) police academy in February 2007. Ten (10) months later, on December 31, 2007, Jimenez pulled over 20-year-old Andrew Moppin. Officers Hector Jimenez and Jessica Borello (a Mexican) shot and killed 20-year-old Andrew Moppin-Buckskin (pictured left) at 47th Avenue and International Boulevard after he ran from his car following a traffic stop, police said. Moppin-Buckskin was not armed, but the officers believed he had been reaching for his waistband, police have said. Less than seven (7) months later, Officer Jimenez would kill again under the "reaching for his waist-band" defense.

Mack "Jody" Woodfox

On July 25, 2008, Officer Jimenez shot and killed Mack "Jody" Woodfox III (pictured left), age 27. Officer Jimenez said he believed Woodfox, a drunken-driving suspect, had been reaching into his waistband for a gun when he jumped from his car and ran after a chase that ended at East 17th Street and Fruitvale Avenue in the Fruitvale district. Woodfox , who was shot in the back, turned out not to have a gun.

Hector Jiminez, Patrick Gonzales, Jessica Borello and Capt. Ed Poulson are still members of the Oakland Police Department. Neither has been brought to justice, or even reprimanded for the deaths as set forth above.

Casper Banjo

Renowned artist, printmaker Casper Banjo, 71, murdered by Oakland police on March 14, 2008. Casper was 71 years old African American at the time of his shooting. He lived in section 8 housing in Oakland and was in poor health after a quadruple by pass operation last year.

The police claimed he was waving a handgun 'replica' therefore they were justified in killing him. They said they told him to put it on the ground. He refused.

Jerry Amaro III

There is “strong circumstantial evidence” that Oakland 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. The FBI is investigating Amaro’s death, and police last week suspended a senior officer, Capt. Edward Poulson, with pay as his role in the matter is probed. 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 (2008), ex-Chief Wayne Tucker put Poulson in charge of Internal Affairs (he was promoted).

Jerrold Cornelius Hall

It was just before 8 p.m., on Sunday, Nov. 15, 1992 when a 19 year old kid called "Glasstop" took a shotgun blast in the back of the head and died for the theft of a $60 radio. The lights were on in the parking lot outside the Hayward BART station, where a six-car southbound train had arrived a few minutes earlier. About 50 passengers had gotten off, and some were still straggling into cars or waiting around for the next AC Transit bus. "Glasstop," a warehouse worker from Union City whose legal name was Jerrold Cornelius Hall, had ridden the train from Bayfair, one stop north, along with John Henry Owens, a 20-year-old unemployed custodian who lived in Oakland. The two young African American men were standing at the bus stop, not far from the station entrance.

Shortly thereafter, B.A.R.T. Police Officer Fred Crabtree pulled into the parking lot in a BART police cruiser. Crabtree was a white 16-year veteran of the transit police agency and a member of its elite Canine Corps. His K-9 dog was a highly trained German shepherd imported from a special obedience school in Germany. The dog trotted at Crabtree's side as he approached Owens and Hall. The officer carried a loaded 12-gauge pump-action shotgun.

Crabtree was responding to a report of an armed robbery. Halfway between Bayfair and Hayward, a passenger had told the train operator that two black men had taken his Walkman personal stereo. The passenger said one of the robbers had a gun and described what they (the robbers) looked like. The train operator passed on the message, and the BART police dispatcher passed it on again (to Crabtree). Owens and Hall matched the third-hand description that came over Crabtree's radio.

Within a matter of minutes, Hall was lying in a pool of his own blood, Owens was in handcuffs, and the parking lot was a mass of sirens and flashing red lights. Hall was pronounced dead shortly after midnight at Eden Hospital. The police did not turn up a gun after a search of both men. The man who reported the robbery disappeared without leaving his name.

BART's own internal documents contradict the official claim that Hall was attacking or threatening Crabtree at the time of the shooting. Statements filed by several witnesses, and at least two BART police officers, suggest that Hall was more than 10 feet from the officer when the (two) shots were fired [at him], and was walking away. Medical records obtained by the Bay Guardian show that he was shot in the back of the head. Nevertheless, on Dec. 4, 1992 a BART Firearms Review Board, consisting entirely of BART police officers appointed by the chief, determined that the "use of lethal force in this instance was justified." BART officials refuse to release the report or comment further on the findings.

The Alameda County District Attorney at the time, John Meehan, refused to prosecute Officer Crabtree. The results of the FBI investigation of the shooting of Jerrold Hall in the back of the head by the Transit cop, Fred Crabtree, produced no results or disciplinary action against B.A.R.T., or Crabtree. B.A.R.T., took no disciplinary action against Office Crabtree.

Rockne's Revenge!

August 6, 2013 12:28 PM

 photo RobertRockneNewell_zpsfe0bf370.jpg

SAYLORSBURG, Pa. -- A man who police say fatally shot three people during a municipal meeting in the Pocono Mountains was about to fire more rounds when he was wrestled to the ground, possibly preventing more bloodshed, authorities said Tuesday.

The gunman, who police identified as 59-year-old Rockne Newell, was arraigned Tuesday on homicide charges and other counts. Newell indiscriminately fired shots Monday night as he barged into the meeting, authorities said. He left long enough to get another weapon from his car and continued firing upon returning until he was tackled by at least one person and was shot with his own gun, police and witnesses said.

The shooting happened during Ross Township's monthly meeting.

Newell was armed with a .44 Magnum handgun and was about to shoot six more people when a resident and a township official wrestled him to the ground, Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen said at a news conference. The two people who subdued him were identified as Parks and Recreation director Bernie Kozen and resident Mark Kresh, according to state police.

Newell yelled, "You took my property!" and used expletives during the rampage, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the Pocono Record. Newell had a long-standing debate with the township over his dilapidated property, which he was ordered to vacate in 2012.


When police interviewed Newell at the hospital, he reportedly told police he had targeted the meeting because he knew the three township supervisors and the township solicitor would be together in the location.

He also told police he fully expected to die during the incident, according to media sources.

Citing police documents, Newell said, "I wish I killed more of them," as he was being taken to the hospital, Pahomepage.com reports.

Newell is charged with three counts of homicide and two counts of attempted homicide. He is also charged with two counts of aggravated assault, the Pocono Record reports.

State police said 15 to 18 people were at the building, a short drive from Newell's property in a rural area of northeastern Pennsylvania about 85 miles north of Philadelphia, when the gunfire erupted.

Two people died at the scene, and a third died after being flown to Lehigh Valley Medical Center. Police confirmed that at least one of the dead was a township official but gave no details. Gerard J. Kozic, 53, and James V. LaGuardia, 64, both of Saylorsburg, were pronounced dead at the scene, Allen said.

A spokesman for Pocono Medical Center told the Pocono Record newspaper that Newell and two other people injured in the shooting were released from the hospital late Monday.

State police said Newell had a long-running dispute with township officials over the ramshackle, trash-filled property. He said he lived on Social Security and could not afford to clean it.

Pocono Record reporter Chris Reber said he was at the township building Monday night when a man armed with a long gun with a scope shot through a wall into the meeting.

"The thing that got my attention: plaster flying out, blowing out through the walls. Witnesses would later tell me they saw pictures exploding away from the walls," Reber said in his account told to his editors, Marta Gouger and Chris Mele.

He said he crawled out to a hallway, exited the building and took cover behind a vehicle. A local official at the meeting grabbed the shooter and subdued him, Reber said. "(West End Open Space Commission executive director) Bernie Kozen bear-hugged the gunman and took him down," Reber said. "He shot the shooter with his own gun."

Newell's property includes an old camper in the front yard filled with wooden pallets, pieces of what appear to be old railroad ties and trash. A garage leans and appears close to collapse, and a propane tank sits inside an old dog house.

Township supervisors voted in February 2012 to take legal action against Newell for violating zoning and sewer regulations, according to meeting minutes posted online.

Last October, Newell set up a fundraising page online and was trying to raise $10,000 to pay for legal fees in his fight with the township.

"Ross township took me to court & the court ruled I have to vacate my home of 20 years," he wrote on the page called saveRockyshome. "I live on SSI which comes to $600 a month I have no money to clean it up."

In June, the Pocono Record wrote a story about what it said was an 18-year fight between the township and Newell over his property.

Authorities have responded several times to the property for neighbor complaints and found human fecal matter in buckets there in 2009, reports the Pocono Record. The township determined Newell was improperly disposing of sewage and had no permit for a septic system, reports the paper.

Monroe County Court sided with the township in August 2012 and ordered Newell to vacate and never again occupy or use the property unless he had the permits to do so. The report said Newell had been living out of a car, a 1984 Pontiac Fiero, and in abandoned buildings since being ordered to vacate.

Newell told the paper he was unemployed for years after an injury from a crash and had nowhere else to go.

"They have no right to kick me off my property," he told the newspaper. "They call my property an eyesore. When I bought it, it was one of only three properties on the entire road that didn't have what they call junk."

A spokesman for Pocono Medical Center told the Pocono Record that Newell and two other people injured in the shooting were released from the hospital late Monday.

Newell was limping as he appeared via video feed from the Monroe County Correctional Facility for the arraignment, the Pocono Record reports. At the arraignment, a judge asked Newell if he owned any real estate and he responded: "They stole it from me. That's what started all this."

He asked a judge if he would receive medical attention, reports the paper.

"I got a .44 slug on my leg. Hospital says it's still in there. They gave me no pain medication and sent me on my way. I'm bleeding all over the place," he reportedly said.

Cops & Doctors!

Posted: Monday, June 25, 2012 - Updated 03:05 p.m. PST, Tuesday, June 26, 2012



Hitchcock, TX -- Former Houston police officer Dennis Redding (pictured above, center) has been charged with murder in connection with the death of Dr. Mark K. Holcomb, an oral surgeon in Webster, after the two paired-up for a fishing trip. Redding is a police officer who resigned from the force in 1978. He later worked in security for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Hitchcock Police Chief Clay Kennelly said there was a dispute between the two men in the sense that words were exchanged in the moments before Redding allegedly shot Holcomb in the stomach, although there may not have been an argument or a shoving match. Neither the police nor the family have a motive for the slaying. "There is seemingly no explanation right now," Hanks said. "They are at a loss." Kennelly said, "I am really at a loss to explain why it would happen in the first place."

Holcomb, 61 (pictured left) had escorted suspect Dennis Roy Redding, 63, of Cedar Creek to a guest bedroom on the third floor of his house in the Harborwalk subdivision when the shooting occurred about 12:30 p.m. The two friends were going to their bedrooms so they could get up early the next morning and go fishing. Holcomb accompanied Redding to a guest room, where for some unexplained reason Redding pulled a Ruger .380-caliber pistol from his luggage and shot Holcomb in the stomach, Kennelly said.

Kennelly said there were seven people in the house when police arrived, including the victim and suspect. One of the men in the house took the pistol from Redding and placed it in his pocket, according to a police affidavit. Holcomb lay on his back between the bed and the wall, blood pooled around a wound in his abdomen, the affidavit said. Police arrived to find two men restraining Redding. "Redding was compliant, he didn't struggle with the officers," Kennelly said. Redding was released Saturday after posting $150,000 bail.

Dr. Holcomb, of Clear Lake, was married with four daughters. He owned Clear Lake Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Webster.

Predatory Policing!

Posted: Friday, May 04, 2012 - Updated: Tuesday, May 8, 2012, 2:42 AM PST



Pittsburgh, PA -- A fired Pittsburgh police officer faces additional charges after a fifth woman told police he offered her legal assistance in exchange for sexual acts. The woman, identified in a criminal complaint as "Jane Doe-5," told a sex assault detective that she met Adam Skweres, 34, formerly a patrol officer out of the city's Zone 3 station in Allentown, in October of 2010 and kept her encounters with him secret for more than a year. "Jane Doe-5" recounted her story for sex assault detective Aprill-Noelle Campbell in an interview last month. The woman told the detective she met Mr. Skweres a year and a half ago, when her boyfriend broke his jaw in a bar fight and Mr. Skweres came to take their report.

When the woman reported to the Municipal Court Building for the alleged attacker's preliminary hearing, she "explained to [Officer Skweres] that she was afraid to go on the stand to testify because she had been drinking on the night of the assault and much of the night was a blur," according to a criminal complaint filed in Night Court on Thursday. She told police Mr. Skweres asked her if she wanted to get out of testifying, walked her outside to have a cigarette and told her that "the [district attorney] owed him a favor so she might not have to testify, but they should meet and discuss the situation." Mr. Skweres told the woman that she might lose her nursing license or be charged with perjury if she failed to testify after taking the stand and then called her later that night and instructed her to meet him at his Lincoln Place home, according to the complaint.

The woman told police Mr. Skweres pulled the battery out of her cell phone and scattered the pieces of it throughout his home before pointing to a tablet of paper and saying, "From here on out, we're not going to speak, we're gonna use this paper." The woman said she asked to leave and was told "that's not an option," a statement that made her fear "she was going to be raped or assaulted," according to the complaint.

She told police Mr. Skweres ordered her to strip naked and "perform a few favors." When she left, he told her to "say goodbye to your fucking career," police said. The woman told detectives she waited more than a year to tell her story, changing her mind only after she befriended a Pittsburgh police officer, who encouraged her to report her story after Mr. Skweres was arrested on the first round of charges.

Mr. Skweres faces charges of official oppression, false imprisonment, criminal attempt and criminal coercion for this latest incident, according to a summons filed Thursday night. He faces similar charges in the other cases, at least two of which date back to 2008, when Mr. Skweres had been on the force for about 18 months.

In one case, Mr. Skweres is accused of offering to write a positive letter to Children, Youth and Family Services if a woman performed oral sex on him. In another he is accused of offering to make a woman's ticket "mysteriously disappear" in exchange for a favor and in a third he is accused of offering to help a woman whose boyfriend was a potential informant if she performed oral sex on him. A fourth woman told investigators Mr. Skweres came to her home in uniform and attempted to rape her.

Mr. Skweres, then a five-year veteran of the force, was arrested in February after three women recounted similar stories to police and officers later pressed additional charges against him for an incident involving a fourth woman. Mr. Skweres has maintained his innocence and said he hopes to get his job back. His attorney has touted Mr. Skwere's military background as a former Army reservist who served in Iraq and questioned the credibility of his accusers. A judge ordered in March that Mr. Skweres should be placed on house arrest.

I Thought I
Got Away With It!

Pennsylvania -- Small town Pennsylvania cops used new DNA evidence to crack open a 30-year-old murder case, charging a local councilman with strangling a young woman who was once his lover. Gregory Scott Hopkins, 65 (pictured above, center) a councilman and building contractor from Bridgewater, about 35 miles north of Pittsburgh, was arrested on Sunday and charged with killing 23-year-old Catherine Janet Walsh, local media reported. Hopkins has been on the Bridgewater borough council for about three years, recently winning a reelection in November. Hopkins is currently being held in Beaver County Jail. A preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 6.

Walsh's father, Peter Caltury, found her bound and strangled in bed in her home in Monaca on Sept. 1, 1979, after she didn't show up for work following the Labor Day holiday. Hopkins was questioned as a possible suspect after Walsh was found and told police he and the young woman had been sexually involved. But he swore that they hadn't been together for a month before she died. Local cops cracked the cold case after new tests in 2011 — using methods unavailable in 1979 — linked Hopkins' DNA with semen found on Walsh's nightgown and bedsheets, the criminal complaint said. Cops haven't established a motive for the murder. At a news conference after the arrest, Walsh's brother, Francesco Caltieri, said the bust would be "the start of closure" for the family. "You know, 32 years is a long time," Caltieri told reporters. "So there were certainly a lot of times where we thought it would never happen, but you always keep faith."

Locals in the small Ohio River town said they were stunned by the news. "When I heard [about the arrest] on the news, it shocked me," one of Hopkins' neighbors, Tim Phillippi, told media sources. "I always thought he was a real nice guy. I never in a million years would have thought this." Dave Porter, who grew up with Hopkins, told media sources that he had a reputation as "a good guy."

"He was pretty much open and above board," Porter said. “That said, a lot changes over the years."

Internet Perverted Cop!


6:04 p.m. EST, February 17, 2011

A state trooper from the Milton barracks is off the job, accused of using an internet chat room to send a sexually explicit video to someone he thought was a 13-year-old girl. Trooper Douglas Sversko, a veteran with the Pennsylvania State Police. was arrested Wednesday. Investigators said Sversko sent nude video of himself to someone he thought was a 13-year-old girl. That girl was actually an undercover agent.

Sversko (pictured left) of the Lewisburg area, found himself on the other side of the law when he was arrested and accused of using a webcam to send nude video of himself to a 13-year-old girl in March of last year. It was actually an undercover agent posing as a teen in an internet chat room. Sversko helped investigate a case last year involving child predators from the Hughesville area and numerous others during his more than 27 years working as a trooper in central Pennsylvania.



Investigators said they seized three computers from Sversko's home. Court papers state Sversko used the webcam and wrote to the undercover agent saying, "Make sure you delete our conversation," and, "We don't really want mom to read about this."

State police said Trooper Sversko has been suspended without pay effective Thursday. He was assigned to state police in Milton. He is out on bail, awaiting a court hearing in the Harrisburg area.

LAPD Again!


January 19, 2011

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. (WCJB) -- The Los Angeles Police Department is defending officers who fatally shot a man during a struggle, after he stripped and caused an early morning disturbance in the Playa Vista area. Police say 25-year-old Reggie Doucet, a former football player at Middle Tennessee State University, repeatedly punched the officers and tried to take their guns. Paul Weber, president of the LA police union, said in a statement Saturday that the officers were "fighting for their lives" when they opened fire.

But civil rights groups contend they could have used non-lethal means to subdue Ducet. They're calling on LAPD Chief Charlie Beck to review the department's training and tactics in dealing with unarmed suspects. The shooting happened just after 3 a.m. Friday in the 5600 block of Crescent Way West after LAPD officers responded to a disturbing the peace call.

 

The man, identified as Reggie Doucet, apparently took a taxi to the location, began stripping off his clothing and running around naked. A witness said she heard screaming and commotion outside her window as police chased after the naked suspect. At some point, the suspect put on boxers. "I heard them try to detain him and he would not comply; and there was a fight, a physical fight," she said. She then heard two gunshots.

Doucet was struck and rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, officials said. Police say he was a resident of the condominium complex. Doucet's neighbor Chris Ellison said the former quarterback for Middle Tennessee State University was never violent in the seven years they were neighbors. Doucet, who played corner back, played on MTSU's Motor City Bowl team. He started five games and played in all 13 games in 2006 with a career-high 40 tackles and three interceptions.

Photo: This video frame from a surveillance camera shows a confrontation between off-duty Deputy U.S. Marshal Matthew Itkowitz, left, and Ryan Gonzalez on March 5, 2008, in an alley off Melrose Avenue. Gonzalez was shot and killed during the confrontation. This frame shows the muzzle flash from the first shot fired by Itkowitz.

In a 2008 homicide case an off-duty federal marshal argued that he fatally shot a man in self-defense. Corrupt Justice™ explores the death investigation and various witness accounts of what happened that fateful evening, as well as reveals surveillance camera footage that sheds light on the shooting.

Matthew Itkowitz, an off-duty deputy U.S. marshal, was being beaten and threatened with a gun in an alley off Melrose Avenue when, in fear for his life, he managed to draw his own weapon and fatally shoot his attacker.

At least, that's the story Itkowitz told Los Angeles police.

What really happened that night in the Fairfax district is less clear-cut. Witnesses' accounts of what happened before the shooting vary. But footage from a surveillance camera, which has never been made public, calls into question the deputy marshal's claim of self-defense. A copy of the tape was reviewed by Corrupt Justice™.

The video footage of the March 5, 2008, encounter, coupled with other evidence from the scene, raises a disturbing possibility: that a drunk cop fatally shot a man in the back to settle a score.

Whether prosecutors see it that way is another matter. View the video footage

"Dirty 30's!


November 12, 2010

Oakland police officers in riot gear stand guard on I-880 entrance ramp at 42nd Avenue to prevent demonstrators from trespassing in Oakland, Calif., on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2010. The demonstrators protested the fatal shooting of Derrick Jones by Oakland Police last Monday, November 8. The peaceful protest began with a march from Derrick Jones' barbershop on Bancroft Avenue near Seminary Avenue along International Boulevard and ended at the Fruitvale BART station.

OAKLAND, CA -- The "shiny object" police officers said they saw being held by Derrick Jones before he was fatally shot Monday night was an electronic scale, police said today. Police also said a small amount of marijuana was found in one of Jones' pockets. The unarmed 37-year-old, a father and barbershop owner, was fatally shot by two officers after a brief foot chase. The officers were trying to detain him after a report of a domestic dispute.

Sources identified the officers today as Eriberto Perez-Angeles, who has been on the department for three years and who is also a member of the SWAT team, and Omar Daza-Quiroz, an officer for four years.

The officers told investigators that Jones kept reaching toward his waistband and that at one point they saw a "shiny object" that turned out to be the scale.

Oakland civil rights attorney John Burris, who has consulted with Jones' relatives, was skeptical of the explanation. "For one thing, I'm surprised it's taken five days for the police to reveal this information," Burris said. "And the fact that they saw something shiny was certainly not a basis to shoot and kill someone."

Officers told investigators that Jones was shot several times in the front of his body after he refused their repeated commands to raise his hands. The officers said Jones appeared to be reaching for something when they shot him. No gun or other kind of weapon was found on him. The scale was found alongside his body, authorities said. Oakland police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason today described the scale as 3 inches by 5 inches with a silver finish. The marijuana was found in a small glass container.

BART police officers stand guard at Fruitvale BART station as demonstrators protest the fatal shooting of Derrick Jones by Oakland Police in Oakland, Calif., on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2010. The peaceful protest began with a march from Derrick Jones' barbershop on Bancroft Avenue near Seminary Avenue along International Boulevard and ended at the Fruitvale BART station. Jones was shot and killed Monday November 8, 2010. A demonstration is scheduled for today at 3 p.m. in front of Jones' barbershop on Bancroft Avenue to protest his killing. A march Thursday from the barbershop to the Fruitvale BART station was peaceful but did close down the BART station for about an hour.

The police homicide and internal affairs units and the Alameda County District Attorney's Office are investigating the shooting. The two officers are on paid administrative leave as is normal after an officer-involved shooting.

Trooper Foley!


Upheld!!!

UpdatePublished: Friday, Jan. 6, 2012

Pennsylvania -- The state Superior Court has upheld the conviction of a former Pennsylvania trooper in the murder of a Blairsville dentist. In a 19-page opinion, a three-member panel of the appellate court dismissed each of Foley's arguments seeking to throw out a first-degree murder conviction that ended an eight-day trial on April 13, 2009. He is serving a mandatory life sentence at SCI-Retreat in Luzerne County near Wilkes Barre.

An Indiana County jury convicted Kevin J. Foley, 46, formerly of White Township, in the fatal beating and slashing of Dr. John Yelenic in his home in 2006. Foley had been living with Yelenic's estranged wife, Michele Yelenic, who was going through a bitter divorce with the dentist. "On three occasions, Foley attempted to have Dr. Yelenic investigated and arrested for child abuse, and Foley was frustrated by his lack of success," the court noted in the opinion, dated Dec. 28 and published this week. "Foley had an opportunity to commit the crime. At the approximate time of the murder, he was driving home from a hockey game in Delmont to his home in Indiana which took him past Blairsville, where Dr. Yelenic resided," Judge Jack A. Panella wrote in the opinion.

Defense attorneys argued that President Judge William Martin erred when he permitted jurors to hear evidence about bloody footprints discovered near the body. The defense argued it "was irrelevant because the shoe prints found at the scene could not be authoritatively determined to be any particular brand, style or size of shoe."

Deputy Attorney General Anthony Krastek presented trial evidence linking the prints to a specific Asics brand running shoe favored by Foley. Evidence showed the shoe size was between size 10 and 12, and Foley wore a size 10. Terry Schalow, a product manager for Asics in California, testified the print matched a specific Asics Gel Creed shoe or a knock-off. Troopers at the Indiana station testified Foley switched to Nike shoes after the murder, noted the panel, which included Judge Jacqueline Shogun and Senior Judge Robert E. Colville.

"While the shoe-print evidence tended to support an inference that Foley committed the crime, there is no reason to believe that it improperly inflamed the jury. Thus, the trial court did not abuse its discretion by admitting the shoe-print evidence," it said.

"Dr. Yelenic was slashed by a sharp instrument, and Foley was known by his colleagues to be a 'knife guy' who habitually flicked open and shut a knife that he carried with him. When informed of Dr. Yelenic's death shortly after the discovery of the murder, Foley was unemotional, expressed no curiosity about the nature or cause of death, and only asked which law enforcement agency was in charge of the investigation. "After the murder, Foley stopped playing with his knife," the opinion said.

Other evidence linked the trooper to the killing.

"Foley's DNA profile is consistent with DNA found under Dr. Yelenic's fingernail, and the most conservative estimate of the likelihood that someone else would possess a consistent profile was one in 13,000. On the night before the murder, Foley had no abrasion on his forehead, but on the morning following the murder he had an injury on his forehead described by three eyewitnesses as a fingernail scratch and by others as a cut that appeared to be fresh," the appellate judges wrote.

Michele Yelenic was not charged. She denied being involved or having any knowledge of the slaying, according to filings in a civil damage suit filed by Yelenic's heirs. They unsuccessfully tried to obtain his divorce after he was killed.

Life without Parole!!!

March 19, 2009

INDIANA, Pa. - An Indiana County jury returned a guilty verdict of first-degree murder late Wednesday (March 18, 2009) night against a state trooper accused of stabbing and nearly decapitating Blairsville dentist Dr. John Yelenic in 2006. The verdict came hours after suspended Pennsylvania state Trooper Kevin Foley took the stand and denied killing the dentist, who was found dead on April 13, 2006. The defense rested its case and the jury began its deliberations late Wednesday afternoon and lasted late into the evening. Jurors deliberated six hours before finding Kevin Foley guilty of first-degree murder in the April 2006 slaying of Dr. John Yelenic at his Blairsville home.

Foley enlisted in the State Police on Jan. 3, 1994, and graduated from the State Police Academy on June 24, 1994. He was assigned to Troop A, Indiana, where he served since that time.

Sentencing: June 1, 2009

Foley's Testimony - March 18, 2009 Senior Deputy Attorney General Anthony Krastek questioned Foley about testimony by other troopers who said he talked about wishing for Yelenic's death. One trooper testified that Foley asked for his help to kill Yelenic. "I never made a threat with the intention of carrying it out," Kevin Foley said during questioning by the prosecution at his trial. Foley acknowledged that he didn't like Yelenic, but said he was a practical joker and commented in jest. "Is it funny when you asked ... that you wanted help killing John Yelenic?" Krastek said. "What's so funny about that? Tell me the joke." "There isn't any joke," Foley replied. "It's just my personality, my behavior." Under earlier questioning by his defense attorney, Foley said he was innocent.

Background



September 27, 2007

INDIANA - A Pennsylvania State Trooper (pictured left) was arrested today and charged with the 2006 murder of a prominent Indiana County dentist, John J. Yelenic. Attorney General Tom Corbett identified the defendant as Kevin Foley, 42, of 10 Susan Dr., Indiana. Corbett, along with Indiana County District Attorney Robert Bell and Pennsylvania State Police officers, announced the charges during a news conference this afternoon at the Indiana County Courthouse. Corbett said the April 13, 2006 homicide of Dr. John J. Yelenic, 39, was placed before a statewide investigating grand jury in May 2007. The grand jury found evidence linking Foley to Dr. Yelenic's murder. "State Police worked side by side with the Attorney General's Office and the Indiana County District Attorney's Office in this investigation," said State Police Commissioner Jeffrey B. Miller.

The Arrest


The Dr. John J. Yelenic homicide



Corbett said the grand jury found that Dr. John J. Yelenic was killed in the early morning hours of April 13, 2006. Yelenic's body was discovered in the living room of his home located at 233 South Spring St., located within the Borough of Blairsville, Indiana County. Corbett said that Yelenic died after receiving multiple laceration wounds, most of which were consistent with slashing knife wounds. An autopsy found that the cause of death was exsanguination, or blood loss, as a result of lacerated wounds of the scalp, face, neck, trunk, and right arm.

The Grand Jury

According to the grand jury, blood pools and smears in various locations inside the residence - including on the walls and furniture located in the foyer, hallway, and living room - indicated that a struggle had taken place. A window next to the front door was broken and blood was observed on and around the window. The window curtain and two curtain rods were bent, twisted off mounting hooks, and soaked in blood lying on the floor in the foyer. Because the crime scene indicated that a struggle had taken place, a blood sample and fingernail clippings were obtained from Dr. Yelenic and sent to an FBI lab for DNA analysis.

Corbett said Foley played in an ice hockey game at the Center Ice Arena off route 22 in Salem Township on April 12, 2006. Foley was seen arriving at the ice arena at approximately 10:30 p.m. He played in the hockey game and left the ice arena at approximately midnight. The grand jury also revealed that when Foley left the arena he did not have any apparent injuries. Following the murder of Dr. Yelenic on April 13, 2006, Foley was observed with a fresh, one-to-two inch gash that appeared to be red and swollen above his left eye. Another small scratch was seen below the left eye.

Corbett said Dr. Yelenic was found barefoot; however, bloody shoe prints were also discovered at the crime scene. Investigators sent photographs and CD images of the prints to the FBI lab, where tests indicated the prints were from an ASICS 'Gel Creed" or 'Gel Creed Plus" shoes, size 10 through 12-and-a-half. The grand jury revealed that Foley was regularly seen wearing ASICS running shoes and would purchase shoes directly from ASICS through a discount program offered by the company to individuals in law enforcement. On Aug. 12, 2003, an order was placed to ASICS by Foley for a pair of Gel-Creed TN217 running shoes, size 10. However, the company had discontinued that style, and instead shipped a pair of ASICS Gel-Creed Plus TN327 running shoes, size 10 to Trooper Foley on Aug. 18, 2003. The grand jury stated that after the murder of Yelenic, Foley was observed wearing only NIKE running shoes.

Corbett said surveillance video taken from two businesses indicates that a vehicle matching Foley's was near Yelenic's home within the time frame that the murder occurred. Corbett said the grand jury found that Foley had a well-known hatred for Dr. Yelenic. Foley had been having a romantic relationship with Yelenic's estranged wife, Michele. For more than three years, Yelenic and his wife had been going through a bitter divorce. Corbett said that at the end of 2004, Foley moved into Michele Yelenic's residence on Susan Drive, Indiana, with her three children, including Dr. Yelenic and Michele's adopted son. According to the grand jury, Foley publicly stated how he "wished that Dr. Yelenic would die." On one occasion, Foley allegedly asked another state trooper if he would like to help him kill Dr. Yelenic, although the trooper did not take the comment seriously at the time. Foley's comments regarding his hatred for Dr. Yelenic were allegedly a daily occurrence. Additionally, the grand jury found that it was not uncommon for Foley to be seen playing with a knife. It was revealed that Foley was always opening, closing, and flipping his knife. However, after Yelenic's murder, Foley was never observed playing with his knife again.

Other Killer Cops!


Jerry Bowens

March 9, 2009 A New York Police Department narcotics officer, Jerry Bowens, who is embroiled in a corruption scandal shot and killed his girlfriend. Authorities said it did not appear directly related to an investigation of alleged misconduct by officers (they allegedly stole drugs and cash from busts and used them to repay an informant) assigned to narcotics enforcement on overnight shifts in Brooklyn. The corruption case dates to September 2007, when officials say a white undercover detective used a racial epithet with his secret recording device inadvertently switched on. The recording suggested he may have also stolen drugs, triggering the criminal probe.


Court papers later alleged the officer revealed on tape that he and another officer had underreported the amount of drugs seized during an arrest. Both were arrested and charged with false document and official misconduct charges. Authorities say an investigation found that Bowens and another officer gave some of the missing drugs to an informant as a reward. A fifth officer also was charged; all except Bowens have denied any wrongdoing.

Bowens allegedly shot girlfriend Catherine Donofrio (described as Bowens' "on-again, off-again" girlfriend) in the Greenpoint apartment of her friend Melissa Simmons. News reports indicate that Bowens (far left) pulled Donofrio (center) into the bathroom and shot her in the head there, then he fired shots at Simmons (right), who was wounded. The motive of the slaying Sunday of 28-year-old Catherine Donofrio was unclear. It has been suggested that Bowens believed Simmons was setting Donofrio up with other men. Bowens went on the run, heading to a hotel in New Jersey (and leaving behind bloody towels) and eventually to Staten Island, where he alleged he was going to turn himself in at a police precinct. Cops found Bowens a block away from the precinct inside his car. He had a .357 magnum and an automatic rifle in the vehicle. Bowens was charged with murder and possession of a criminal weapon.

Alexis Chaparro

February 25, 2009

Arrest: Nearly three months after the crime, a New York City police officer who has been on suspension since his fiancée, a fellow officer, was found shot to death in the couple's Long Island home was indicted. The man, Alexis Chaparro, 27, (above right) of Bay Shore, was expected to turn himself in to authorities Friday. Chaparro's indictment is the first in connection with Garcia's death. He was suspected in the Sept. 29, 2007 death of his fiancée, Sonia Garcia, 28, (above left) who was assigned to the 77th Precinct, in Brooklyn. Mr. Chaparro told investigators that on the morning of Ms. Garcia's death, he heard a shot and found her in a bedroom with a chest wound.

Plea: A New York City police instructor has admitted he shot and killed his fiancee, also an NYPD officer, inside their Long Island home in September 2007. Alexis Chaparro pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter Wednesday in the death of Officer Sonia Garcia in state Supreme Court in Riverhead. Chaparro contended he was concerned about burglars in his Bay Shore neighborhood and shot and killed the victim after being awakened from a sound sleep. Chaparro, originally indicted on second-degree murder charges, faces 10 years in prison when he is sentenced on Jan. 7, 2009. Prosecutor Janet Albertson said recent appeals court decisions have made it difficult to convict suspects in one-on-one shootings like the killing of Garcia, so the decision was made to accept a plea deal to ensure Chaparro spends a "substantial prison sentence."

Sentencing: A New York City police academy instructor was sentenced in Riverhead Wednesday, February 25, 2009, to 10 years in prison for fatally shooting his fiancee. Alexis Chaparro, 28, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter, a crime that carries a maximum prison term of 25 years.

Lt. Jim Barton

April 11, 1995
This case aired October 29, 2005 on the CBS News show "48 Hours Mystery." Jim Barton was a Lt. with the police department in Springboro, Ohio. On April 11, 1995 he returned home to find that his wife Vickie had been murdered execution style with three gun shot wounds to the head. The case remained unsolved for three years. In 1998, the police got a break when a career criminal named Gary Henson told them that his half-brother William Phelps killed Vickie Barton. According to Henson, Phelps and an unknown accomplice burglarized the Barton home. Phelps panicked and shot Vickie Barton. Four months after killing Vickie, Phelps committed suicide. Because Henson knew details of the crime that had not been released to the public his story sounded believable. However, DNA evidence found at the crime scene did not match William Phelps. Therefore, the case remained opened as to who killed Vickie Barton. In 2003, a cold case team took another look at Vickie Barton's murder. Within six weeks they found something that had been overlooked. When Jim Barton (pictured left) found his wife had been shot to death he called 911. On the 911 tape, Jim Barton can be heard saying "I gotta call Phelp man." This appeared to tie Barton with William Phelps. Barton would claim the 911 operator was not helping him and that he slurred his words and stated "I gotta call fo-help man." Convinced that he said "Phelp" the cold case team went back to Phelps' half-brother Gary Henson who provided police with additional information. Henson now claimed that Barton hired Phelps to stage a burglary at Barton's house and to scare his wife Vickie. It was known that Barton wanted to become the Police Chief and there was an unwritten rule that the Chief should reside within the city limits. Since Barton lived outside the city limits, the police theorized that Barton wanted his wife scared into moving into town. In April 2004, Jim Barton was arrested for causing Vickie Barton's death. His trial began on February 7, 2005. Eleven days later the jury found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter and aggravated burglary. Jim Barton was sentenced to 15 to 50 years in prison. Barton maintains his innocence. The Barton file April 11, 1995: Springboro Police Lt. Thomas "Jim" Barton calls Warren County 911 emergency dispatchers and reports finding his 40-year-old wife, Vickie, dead in their Franklin Township farmhouse. Vickie Barton, a nurse, taught nursing students in Kettering, a Dayton suburb. She had been shot. September 1995: Investigators say they have ruled out Barton as a suspect because they had accounted for his actions the day his wife died. December 1998: After deputies received a tip that a dead Middletown man, William Lee Phelps, may have been connected to Vickie Barton's slaying, investigators exhumed his body. He had committed suicide four months after the slaying. However, DNA samples from Phelps did not match crime-scene evidence, investigators said. April 2003: Authorities from several Warren County police agencies form a "Cold Case Squad" to re-investigate unsolved homicides; the Barton case becomes a top priority. Jim Barton undergoes cold-case investigative training. June 2003: Investigators release new descriptions of items that were apparently stolen from the Barton farmhouse, including a .22-caliber gun, possibly the weapon used to kill Vickie Barton. January 2004: Authorities reveal that Barton and Waynesville Officer Tom Barber are among at least three people who have important information about the crime; both officers are suspended from their jobs. Investigators also disclose they found proof that Phelps had been at the crime scene the day Vickie Barton was killed; they allege Barton uttered Phelps' name when he called 911 to report his wife was killed. February 2004: Barton, 48, resigned from the Springboro force two weeks after he was suspended; Barber, 51, was fired from the Waynesville force for missing meetings with the police chief. April 2004: Two days before the ninth anniversary of the slaying, a Warren County grand jury indicts the former lieutenant on five charges alleging he was involved in her death but wasn't the gunman. Barton is freed after his new wife posts $55,000 bond.
