Corrupt & Perverted Judges - Part II




July 28, 2010

OAKLAND -- On May 18, 2010, a federal appeals court upheld $3.7 million in damages Tuesday against the city of Oakland and two police officers who, according to a jury, planted an assault rifle on a parolee's property. Jurors found in November 2007 that the officers had violated the civil rights of the parolee, Torry Smith, and his then-girlfriend, Patricia Gray, by fabricating a case against Smith to justify his arrest in September 2004. Smith spent 4 1/2 months in jail before being cleared.

Uncle Clarence!


September 29, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC -- Democratic lawmakers on Thursday called for a federal investigation into Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' failure to report hundreds of thousands of dollars on annual financial disclosure forms. Led by House Rules Committee ranking member Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), 20 House Democrats sent a letter to the Judicial Conference of the United States -- the entity that frames guidelines for the administration of federal courts -- requesting that the conference refer the matter of Thomas' non-compliance with the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 to the Department of Justice.

The letter outlines how, throughout his 20-year tenure on the Supreme Court, Thomas routinely checked a box titled "none" on his annual financial disclosure forms, indicating that his wife had received no income. But in reality, the letter states, she earned nearly $700,000 from the Heritage Foundation from 2003 to 2007 alone.

Slaughter called it "absurd" to suggest that Thomas may not have known how to fill out the forms.

"It is reasonable, in every sense of the word, to believe that a member of the highest court in the land should know how to properly disclose almost $700,000 worth of income," Slaughter said in a statement. "To not be able to do so is suspicious, and according to law, requires further investigation. To accept Justice Thomas’s explanation without doing the required due diligence would be irresponsible."

The letter also cites a June report in The New York Times indicating Thomas may have regularly benefited from the use of a private yacht and airplane owned by real estate magnate Harlan Crow and failed to disclose the travel as a gift or travel reimbursement.

Current law requires the Judicial Conference to refer to the Attorney General any judge the conference "has reasonable cause to believe has willfully failed to file a report or has willfully falsified or willfully failed to file information required to be reported."

Slaughter's press statement also notes that the Heritage Foundation was a prominent opponent of the Affordable Care Act, an issue the Supreme Court is expected to rule on by next summer.

"The Attorney General would be the appropriate person to investigate the issue of non-disclosure, and that is why my colleagues and I are making this request today," Slaughter said. "I cannot determine guilt or innocence, but I can request that the government do our due diligence in investigating a situation that strikes me, and many other members of Congress, as suspicious."

Other members of Congress on the letter include Reps. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), Mike Honda (D-Calif.), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Christopher Murphy (D-Conn.), John Garamendi (D-Calif.), Pete Stark (D-Calif.), Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), John Olver (D-Mass.), Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Donna Edwards (D-Md.), Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.), Bob Filner (D-Calif.), Peter Welch (D-Vt.), John Conyers (D-Mich.), Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.).

Vester Recants!


June 15, 2011



Georgia - The wife of Albany Municipal Court Judge Willie Weaver (pictured above, center) Vester, now claims her husband never assaulted her. She held a press conference at church with a pastor and reverend taking their turns to praise the judge and blame others for Vester's report.



May 24, 2011

The GBI is looking into reports of a domestic altercation between Judge Willie Weaver and his wife. But local advocates are speaking out today, concerned enough isn't being done. On Tuesday there was no sign of Judge Willie Weaver at his Pine Avenue office. The municipal court judge is under investigation in connection with a domestic altercation involving his wife. “Judge Weaver’s wife was presented to the local hospital and indicated that there had been an altercation,” said Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards. “Part of what the initial investigation is that it occurred at the home of a police officer.”

But while he's not at his office he's not in jail either. Now advocates against domestic violence are questioning why not. “If there were witnesses and there was a perpetrator and that person was identified as such and it was family violence then somebody needed to go to jail,” said Silke Deeley, Director of the Liberty House. Now officials in Dougherty County are trying to walk a fine line making sure they show no favoritism. “Because of the nature of the case and the potential for any conflict that might arise from the investigation. I deemed it appropriate to immediately bring in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation,” said Edwards.

Albany Police initially handled the case before it was turned over to GBI. We reached out to officials to ask why no one was arrested, but they said since the case is no longer in their hands they can't make a comment. But District Attorney Edwards says evidence at the scene played a key role.

“Presentation of the initial report was not at the crime scene, if there was a crime. So I am not sure if they had any information to make an arrest,” said Edwards.

Weaver has not been charged in this case. Once the GBI completes their investigation they will turn the information over to the district attorney.

An investigation is underway by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation involving Municipal Court Judge Willie Weaver following a report of a domestic violence incident over the weekend. According to the police report, the Albany Police Department responded to Palmyra Medical Center on Saturday at 11 p.m. in reference to a report of a domestic violence incident. According to the report the victim was an injured female and the primary aggressor was listed as Willie C. Weaver. The 31-year-old woman involved in the altercation is "the wife of an Albany Municipal Court Judge," says the GBI.

In a press release, the GBI says on Sunday, Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards requested a GBI investigation into the injuries sustained by the 31-year-old during the alleged incident from Saturday. No arrests or charges have been made at this time. The investigation by agents from the GBI’s Sylvester Field Office continues. Albany Mayor Willie Adams confirmed that he is aware of the ongoing investigation and is awaiting the GBI report before informing the city commission. “I think it’s probably inappropriate for me to comment on ongoing investigations. I have to presume innocence until proven guilty," says Adams. "I understand it’s under investigation, so I’m waiting to see what comes out of that.”

According to the police report, the case remains active and was forwarded to Family Protection Investigators.

James Gibbons


August 31, 2010

A cleavage-crazed criminal court judge - who fathered a son with a young Legal Aid lawyer - quit after officials found a massive porn stash on his work computer, sources said Thursday. Disgraced Manhattan jurist James Gibbons (pictured left) a whip-smart ex-prosecutor who once convicted rapists and killers, fired off a terse resignation letter last week after the nasty cache was uncovered. "There was a lot of porn on his computer - all young women," an investigator told the News. "Lots of crotch and cleavage shots."

The Manhattan district attorney's office is scouring the vile files to determine if criminal charges are warranted - and are checking whether any of the women are underage.

Gibbons, 47, already had raised eyebrows with his ethics-skirting romance with Legal Aid lawyer Jeanne Emhoff, 31, who he fathered a son with weeks ago. Emhoff's Facebook page, which was pulled down Thursday, featured a photo of a man with a boy on his shoulder. The porn revelation staggered the baby's grandparents. "This is going to break her heart," Emhoff's stepdad said of his wife. "She thinks the world of Jim. ... This will destroy my wife."

Gibbons - who was not arrested - was caught when a computer-monitoring system in the courthouse red-flagged his courthouse terminal, a law enforcement source said.

He was on paternity leave when the images were discovered and the computer seized.

During the 14 years he worked in the Manhattan district attorney's office, Gibbons was well-known for his efficient handling of street crimes.

He also enjoyed a good reputation on the bench after his December 2001 appointment by departing Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

"He was a very careful judge on the law," lawyer Adam Freedman said. "If he was using his state-issued computer for illegal activities, it would be uncharacteristic, considering how careful he is on the law."

Despite the possible conflicts of interest between Gibbons and Emhoff, a source close to the case said, their affair was unrelated to the investigation.

"There is absolutely no link between the judge's relationship with Jeanne Emhoff and any alleged criminal activity," the source said. "One has nothing to do with the other."

It was unclear when the porn was found on the disgraced judge's computer, but sources said its discovery was just routine.

"In government agencies, and in many private sector firms, employers are able to monitor employee computer usage," a source said.

Gibbons quit his position with a simple three-paragraph letter that offered no clues to his sudden nightmare.

"It has been a privilege to serve as a judge of the Criminal Court of the City of New York," he wrote. "Please accept this letter as a statement of my resignation of that office effective today."

Update


Samuel Kent


August 3, 2010

A former federal judge in Texas who admitted to nonconsensual sexual contact with court employees, although he pleaded guilty last year only to a related federal obstruction of justice charge, is now challenging prison conditions and seeking a new sentence.

Samuel Kent says he is being treated like a sex offender, even though he was never convicted of a sex crime, and complains that he has spent significant amounts of time in solitary and has been denied access to substance-abuse treatment and computer classes, reports the Associated Press.

In a motion filed yesterday in federal court in Houston, Kent alleges that "the Federal Bureau of Prisons has subjected Sam Kent to abusive psychological and physical conditions that have jeopardized his ongoing recovery from depression and alcoholism."

Judge Timothy Blakely


May 12, 2009

District Judge Timothy Blakely (pictured far left) should be permanently removed from office, the Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards has recommended.

Blakely, 46, who sits in Dakota and Goodhue counties, admittedly steered business to a divorce attorney who had given Blakely a discounted rate for handling his divorce case, the board said.

In the decision filed Monday, the board found that Blakely's actions "deprived citizens of their right to the honest service expected of a public official, possibly in violation of state or federal laws."

The board also said that "Blakely failed to admit that his conduct was improper and did not take responsibility for his actions."

The final decision on the judge's discipline will rest with the Minnesota Supreme Court; that process that can take anywhere from three to five months. Blakely will remain in office during that time, his attorney, Thomas M. Kelley, said today. "We're hopeful that the Supreme Court will look at this independently and objectively," Kelley told the Star Tribune.

The board began an investigation in April, 2007. Blakely subsequently requested a formal hearing, which was held in November to determine whether he had violated the Code of Judicial Conduct. During that hearing, Blakely acknowledged getting the large discount -- a $68,503 reduction on a $108,876 bill -- for an attorney who handled his contentious divorce.

Previous Post


March 11, 2009

A three-member panel of the state Board on Judicial Standards today recommended censure and a six-month unpaid suspension for Goodhue and Dakota County District Judge Timothy Blakely. Led by former Supreme Court Justice Edward Stringer, the board found "clear and convincing evidence" that Blakely violated judicial rules and the state code of judicial conduct by accepting a $63,503 markdown on his $108,876 divorce and appointing his attorney as a mediator in cases he oversaw.

Lawrence Redmond and retired Hennepin County District Judge Allen Oleisky also were on the panel. The recommendation now goes to the entire board for action. The board can dismiss, accept or modify the panel's recommendation. The board's recommendation then goes to the state Supreme Court, which takes briefs, hears arguments, and ultimately will decide what, if any, punishment Blakely faces.

Blakely was on the bench and did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Acting as prosecutor for the board, lawyer Doug Kelley of Minneapolis had sought Blakely's removal.

The investigation into Blakely's actions began after his ex-wife complained he got special treatment. The nine-page complaint included numerous e-mails between the judge and his lawyer Christine Stroemer. According to the complaint, the judge struggled to pay the tab for his contentious divorce, which started in October 2002 and ended in September 2004. By December 2003, he was "severely delinquent" in paying his divorce fees to Stroemer, of the firm Collins, Buckley, Sauntry & Haugh.

Before his divorce, Blakely had not appointed Stroemer to mediate any divorces over which he presided in court, the complaint said. But in November 2004 he "ordered parties appearing before him" in a Dakota County case to submit to mediation with Stroemer. Divorcing couples pay their own mediation costs.

In the first two months of 2005, he appointed Stroemer as a mediator in three Dakota County District Court divorces, according to the complaint.

The panel's 15-page report noted that in testimony "Blakely acknowledged that his reference to significant past and future business referrals while negotiating a fee reduction with Stroemer raises the question of whether he was offering a quid pro quo."

But Blakely argued that it wouldn't be a "reasonable inference" to an informed person: "The question is, is it a fully informed person or some guy standing in the courtroom who doesn't know anything about what we do for a living?"

The panel found his explanation to be "hardly credible," given his repeated failures to advise Stroemer that there was no quid pro quo.

The judge admitted to the board's executive director that his e-mails with Stroemer "looked like crap" and that he had an "ah-ha moment" and "could see a question was raised" by the exchanges, the report said. In a letter, he acknowledged that, "I now also see that as a judge, I should not have mentioned my ability to continue to direct business referrals to [the firm] in the context of a negotiation over the fees I owed them."

Thomas Kelly, who represented Blakely, has said his client simply referred clients to his attorney as anyone might refer someone to a good lawyer. Kelly wasn't immediately available for comment today. Blakely was elected to the bench in 1998. His term expires in 2010.

C.J. Note: A six month suspension for using judicial authority to pay private debts is the epitome of Corrupt Justice.


Thomas E. Stringer


April 23, 2009

Thomas E. Stringer (pictured far left), the well-respected, married judge suddenly found his face splashed beside that of a troubled exotic dancer in a kimono (pictured right of judge). She went on TV to claim they'd been romantically involved, and that he helped her hide money from creditors, even putting a rent-controlled New York City apartment under his name for her.

Stringer's 35-year legal career was tarnished. "It is axiomatic that 'Judge' and 'Stripper' showing up in a headline is never a good thing, especially if you happen to be the 'Judge,'" then Tampa Tribune columnist Daniel Ruth wrote after the story broke.

Criminal charges are possible, though the FBI declined to comment. The state agency that oversees judges dropped misconduct charges after Stringer, who stepped down in February and draws monthly retirement benefits of $8,069, agreed never to be a judge again.

To his friends and the legal community, the speed of Stringer's fall was shocking. Many are reserving judgment, while others feel their trust in him was misplaced. Delano Stewart, a Tampa attorney who calls himself a former friend of Stringer, said Stringer's conduct "disrespects all of what I have worked for all of my life." "I am so deeply angry with him," Stewart said.

Stringer, 64, graduated from Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport in the 1970s. He was the first black graduate from his law school. He became an assistant state attorney and later a circuit judge in Tampa's Hillsborough County. There, in the family law division, he built a reputation as a judge who insisted that all sides be heard. "I can tell you, the family lawyers idolized Tom Stringer," said Chief Judge Stevan T. Northcutt of Florida's 2nd District Court of Appeal. In 1999, Stringer was appointed to that court, where judges make $153,140 a year.

Fast forward to March 2008. Yamanaka, 48, showed up on a local TV station, dressed in a yellow kimono with burnt orange flowers, her long, dark hair flowing. She said she met the judge at an Italian restaurant in 1995, when she was a stripper in Tampa. Five years later, she was deep in debt and turned to him for advice. Later, she said she went public after Stringer refused to repay money he owed her.

Yamanaka had tried to file for bankruptcy in Nevada in 2000 and court documents show she owed American Express more than $78,000, racked up from stays at expensive hotels in Las Vegas and airline tickets. She owed Bank of America another $236,000. She listed her occupation as housewife and said she had just $450 in assets _ family pictures, clothes and a wedding ring _ and no income. The bankruptcy court denied her request, meaning she would have to repay the debts.

Yamanaka, who is divorced, said the judge helped by allowing her to deposit tens of thousands of dollars she made from stripping in Las Vegas and New York into his accounts so creditors wouldn't know she had an income. "Judge suggests to me to put the money into his account," Yamanaka told WFLA-TV in Tampa. "Due to his position nobody bothered him so it would be safe." Stringer told reporters he let her use his accounts because she had terrible credit but denied helping her hide money.

The Judicial Qualifications Commission, which oversees judges in Florida, investigated and found probable cause to believe Stringer had opened bank accounts in his name and let her use them from 2003 to 2007 to hide assets. The commission's inquiry does not say how much money might have passed through the accounts. The allegations listed by the commission only get worse: Stringer listed himself as the sole owner of a home in Hawaii for her. He accepted a trip from her to Las Vegas, a gift he did not disclose though judicial canons require reporting all gifts over $100. He went to New York to sign a lease on an apartment for her, putting it under his name, and allowed her to treat him to a stay at The Waldorf-Astoria hotel. He asked her to buy two Rolex watches, one for him and one for his wife. He borrowed $50,000 from her in a no-interest loan that he failed to repay. None of the transactions was included on the financial disclosure report required of judges.

The alleged acts "constitute conduct unbecoming a member of the judiciary," the commission concluded. When the commission charged Stringer with ethical violations in January, his lawyer called it "tragic."

Stringer, who has said he had a friendship and business relationship with stripper Christy Yamanaka, declined to comment for this story. His attorney did not return repeated messages left at his office. Yamanaka also declined to comment.


Judge James Peck


March 16, 2009

Prosecutors in Manhattan dropped assault charges on Monday against a federal bankruptcy judge accused of hitting his wife in the face, saying that the wife was not cooperating in the case.

The judge, James M. Peck, 63, (pictured far left) was arrested on Jan. 31 after his wife, Judith, 66, called 911 from their home on Park Avenue near 87th Street, the authorities said.
He was accused of hitting his wife with an open palm, causing pain in her jaw that required treatment at a hospital, according to a complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court. Judge Peck was charged with third-degree attempted assault and second-degree harassment.

Melissa Sussman, an assistant district attorney, said in court that the charges were being dismissed for “a number of reasons, including the complaining witness being uncooperative.”

Judge Peck, who has been overseeing the bankruptcy case of Lehman Brothers, was appointed in 2006 to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

At the time of Judge Peck’s arrest, Paul J. Browne, the chief spokesman for the Police Department, said that the police had never before been called to the Pecks’ home about a domestic dispute.

Barry A. Bohrer, a lawyer for Judge Peck, said, “We are gratified that the district attorney recognized that this matter did not belong in the criminal justice system. It’s a personal and private matter and it was appropriately dismissed and sealed.”

C.J. Note: If Judge Peck were a normal, private citizen, he'd still be in jail.

Memphis Police


April 20, 2009

For a month between early March and April, the Memphis Police Department's Organized Crime Unit conducted "Operation Clean Sweep" in the always murky waters of street level drug sales and prostitution. But, among the hundreds of arrests made, what was criminally dredged up on four of their own "men in blue" visibly turned the stomach of MPD Chief, Larry Godwin at a Monday [4/20/09] news conference to announce resulting indictments.

Four Memphis police officers have been indicted in an undercover prostitution and drug investigation. The indictments, which were announced April 20, 2009, resulted from an investigation conducted by the Memphis Police Department’s Organized Crime Unit and Internal Affairs Bureau.

Those indicted were:

James George


James George, 52, (pictured right) on charges of aggravated kidnapping, rape, two counts of official misconduct, and official oppression. A second indictment charges him with aggravated kidnapping, rape, two counts of official misconduct, and official oppression. A third indictment includes charges of aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping, sexual battery by an authority figure, official misconduct and official oppression.

James George, 52, an officer since April 1996, most recently assigned to the Mt. Moriah Station as a patrolman, resigned April 9, 2009. He has been charged in three indictments for offenses alleged to have occurred within the past year: taking a 40-year-old prostitute off the street against her will and raping her; kidnapping another prostitute and raping her on Nov. 28, 2008; and kidnapping and raping an underage girl on Sept. 25, 2008, with Daniel Wallace.

Wallace, 44, an officer since December 2003, most recently assigned to the Mt. Moriah Station, resigned April 9, 2009. He is accused of taking part with George in the alleged kidnapping and rape of an underage girl on Sept. 25, 2008.

Thomas Woods

Thomas Woods, 54, an officer since 1998, assigned as a patrolman in the Mt. Moriah Station, resigned April 9, 2009. He is accused of kidnapping and raping a prostitute sometime in 2008.

Larry Orange


June 17, 2010Update!

A former Memphis police officer has been placed on diversion for a year for paying to have sex with a 17-year-old girl. Larry Orange, 45, pleaded guilty this week in Criminal Court to statutory rape and official misconduct stemming from the incident in the summer of 2008. If he avoids any new arrests and meets other conditions of the court, Orange's record will be cleared on June 16, [2011], according to the sentence issued by Judge John Colton Jr. He was one of several Memphis police officers charged with having sex with prostitutes, but unlike the others, Orange was not on duty at the time and there was no coercion or intimidation involved, state prosecutor Paul Hagerman said. He said the officer met the woman while on duty, got her phone number and later paid her for sex after his shift was over. Orange, who had been a police officer for some 15 years, was issued a three-day suspension in 1996 for being outside his precinct without permission after he and another officer were spotted at a Whitehaven motel. The officers said they were checking on a prostitute with outstanding warrants.

Larry Orange, 44, an officer since January 1994, most recently assigned to the police department's DUI unit, is on nonenforcement status pending an administrative hearing. He is accused of aggravated statutory rape and sexual battery of an underage girl in August or September 2008.

The indictments stemmed from an OCU investigation of prostitution and drug sales. Some of the information that led to the indictments came from the prostitute/victims, according to grand jury indictments.

Police Director Larry Godwin in announcing the indictments said that corrupt officersare no different from any other thugs,” and vowed to continue to root out crooked cops. Godwin, under heavy urging from the Memphis City Council to hire more police officers, noted three of the officers arrested in "Clean Sweep" were brought onto the force in earlier years when his former predecessors were also under fire to get more bodies on the street - despite the questionable pasts of some applicants. A laxness Godwin says he's tried to curb since he took command.



“We will rid our department of thugs who want to wear the blue,” he said.
Godwin said three of the four officers were hired during the mid- and late 1990s, when the department was granting waivers to some recruits with arrest records in an attempt to increase the complement of police by several hundred. Godwin said he has discontinued the practice of granting waivers, with rare exceptions. “I am cautious about who I give waivers to,” he said.

The indictments leveled against former officers James George, Daniel Wallace along with Thomas Woods and Larry Orange seemed to undercut the dozens of other arrests which should have highlighted a successful undercover operation: the arrests of 78 for prostitution with a total of 235 taken into custody overall. But, even among those numbers, another former department "bad apple" reappeared during one of the raids in the Midtown area.

"I will tell you involved the arrest of one former Memphis Police officer also by the name of Quinton Cooper. He was terminated in April 2003."

Godwin said the investigation continues, and that he may refer the case to the U.S. Attorney’s office for possible federal prosecution. “These are very serious, violent charges against individuals sworn to protect the public and uphold the law. It is both disappointing and disturbing when any police officer abuses his power in this manner,” said Dist. Atty. Gen. Bill Gibbons in a statement.

The officers were arrested Friday, April 17, 2009. George is free on $50,000 bond; Wallace and Woods are free on $25,000 bonds; and Orange is free on $10,000 bond.


Medina police


April 13, 2009

Issaquah police are investigating whether a Medina [, Washington] police officer raped a woman he arrested during a traffic stop late last year. The 30-year-old officer is being investigated for third-degree rape and official misconduct, according to a search warrant for his mobile phone records. Issaquah police interviewed the woman last month and obtained the warrant April 2, 2009. The alleged assault occurred at the officer’s Issaquah Highlands home, according to court documents. The officer asked the woman on a date and took her to his home several days after the traffic stop on state Route 520. He had cited her for driving with a suspended license and possession of a small amount of marijuana. He told her he could have the charges against her dismissed, according to court documents.

He later sent three e-mails to city prosecutors asking for the case to be dismissed due to a lack of evidence. Court documents said he sent an e-mail to prosecutors in December that said, “In almost four years, I don’t think I’ve ever asked you guys to dismiss charges and I don’t plan on making a habit of it, but can we dismiss the charges in this case? I wouldn’t even feel right going to court in testifying in this case.”

The incident came to the attention of police last month during another sexual assault investigation. The woman told police her boyfriend had assaulted her. A King County Sheriff’s Office detective overheard the boyfriend say on the phone that the woman “didn’t report the cop for raping her.” When the detective asked the woman about the earlier incident, she recounted the traffic stop and the date with the Medina officer. The detective then handed the case off to Issaquah police, because the woman said the incident occurred in the highlands. The investigation is ongoing; police have not arrested anyone. They are withholding the officer’s name (and photo) because he has not been charged with a crime. The case involving the Medina officer has not been referred to the King County Prosecutor’s Office, spokesman Dan Donohoe said.

After Issaquah officers told him about the investigation, Medina Police Chief Jeff Chen said he “immediately placed the officer on paid administrative leave.”

According to the warrant, the woman said the officer stopped her Nov. 23, 2008. He handcuffed her and put her in the back of his patrol car. He then searched her vehicle and discovered a small bag of what he suspected was marijuana. When he completed the search, he returned to his patrol car. He adjusted her scarf and “put his hand on her.” He also told the woman “she was attractive and beautiful.” She told him she had paid the ticket for the suspended license charge. She then told him she did not want to be charged for the marijuana. He told her not to worry because the charge would go away. He cited and released her.

He called her the next morning and asked to meet at Joker Pub & Grill, 5614 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E. He told the woman he would show her a letter to prosecutors about dismissing the charges. She met him several days later. He told her he was attracted to her and invited her to his home in the highlands. She agreed, but told him she would not have sex with him on the first date.

At his home, he poured a drink for her and told her people are scared of police officers because “they have power and authority, and a gun and a badge.” He then put his gun on a table; the woman told police she felt the officer was trying to intimidate her with the gesture. He offered her a tour of his home. When they reached the bedroom, he pushed her onto the bed, held her hands above her head and straddled her. She told him she did not want to have sex, and he replied, “You don’t really mean that.” He then raped her.

She told police she contacted the officer each time she went to court. She asked when the charges would be dismissed. The officer called her phone nine times between Nov. 24, 2009 and Feb. 9, 2009 according to the warrant. Charges against the woman were dropped Feb. 9, 2009 due to issues with the evidence. The officer said he did not send the evidence to the Washington State Patrol Crime Laboratory because there was not enough of the suspected marijuana to test, according to the warrant.

The warrant said the officer sent an e-mail to the Medina evidence custodian Dec. 9, 2009 that said, “I talked to the prosecutor and they’re going to drop the marijuana part of the case, so it doesn’t need to get tested.” Issaquah police obtained the suspected marijuana that was part of the assault investigation. Investigators said the substance tested positive as marijuana, according to the warrant.

Investigators are waiting for phone records to be released before they pursue charges.

"Right now, the investigation surrounds an allegation of rape and official misconduct," said Issaquah Deputy Chief Steve Cozart. "A crime is a crime. We investigate it regardless of who the allegations are against."


Steve Drummer


February 19, 2009

A nine-year veteran of the Birmingham Police Department has been arrested. In a news release from the BPD, Steve Drummer, 44, of Birmingham, Alabama faces a Sodomy 1st Degree warrant, and a Sexual Abuse warrant. Drummer was identified in connection with the sexual assault of a 20 year old female victim, which occurred on Sunday, February 15, 2009, about 10 p.m. in Birmingham. Drummer was on duty during the alleged incident.The 20-year-old female victim filed the charges against the officer.

According to a Birmingham police news release, a 20-year-old woman reported being sexually assaulted close to 10 p.m. Sunday in western Birmingham. Drummer (pictured right) was assigned to the West Precinct and worked the 3 to 11 p.m. shift.

Drummer’s employment with the BPD was terminated as of Thursday, February 19, 2009. Bond totals $70,000. Drummer was taken to the Jefferson County Jail.

With sexual harassment already a significant problem in the workplace, it is intolerable to think that citizens are subject to this form of assault from those who are sworn to serve and protect us from such victimization. This goes beyond police misconduct and municipal liability, violating not just citizens’ rights, safety and well-being, but also their trust and support for civil service agencies.

OAKLAND, CA -- The federal judge who will determine the future of Oakland's police force sent an unequivocal message Monday that he alone will decide what powers a court-appointed receiver would wield over the department. Oakland risks becoming the first major U.S. city to lose significant control of its police force over its failure to fully implement reforms stemming from the decade-old Riders police corruption case. The city is expected to vigorously fight to keep control of the department.

U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson refused to sign off on an agreement between the attorneys seeking a federal takeover of the department and Oakland's police union that would have prevented any court-appointed receiver from interfering with the union's contract and due process rights. In a two-paragraph response late Monday, Henderson wrote that only he had the authority to determine the receiver's powers and that he is considering bringing in an outside expert to help make that determination, should he opt to appoint a receiver. Henderson, who oversaw the Riders case, has scheduled a Dec. 13 hearing to consider appointing a receiver with potentially broad powers including the authority to hire and fire Oakland's police chief. Had Henderson agreed to limit a receiver's authority over the union's contract, the union would dropped its request to intervene in the receivership proceedings.

"The judge is clearly keeping all his options on the table," said an attorney representing the police union. "We don't have all the predictability on those issues that we would have liked to have had."

Familial Attitudes!

OAKLAND, CA -- City of Oakland Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente won't commit to returning campaign funds he says he unwittingly received from an Oakland motel recently shut down for its long involvement with prostitution and child sex trafficking. A judge ordered the hotel closed for a year in August. One month later, De La Fuente received a maximum $700 check from the hotel, which is owned by a limited liability company registered to Rajeshkumar Khatri, of Castro Valley. Two other East Bay hotels registered to limited liability companies also headed by Khatri, the Super 8 in Hayward and the Econo Lodge in Castro Valley, also gave De La Fuente maximum contributions -- a potential violation of city campaign finance rules.

Oakland's campaign finance law limits individual contributions to $700 and restricts the ability of people to use multiple businesses or limited liability companies to skirt contribution limits. The city treats such entities as a single person when they share two or more officers or are controlled by the same majority shareholders. All three hotel corporations list only Khatri and his wife, Hansaben Khatri, as managers in state filings.

De La Fuente said he voted to authorize the lawsuit that led to shuttering the motel and was unaware its owners had contributed to his campaign. "A lot of people give me money, so I don't know who (my contributors are) until I read my report," he said. De La Fuente's campaign filed a report Oct. 5 listing his major contributions, including the $2,100 he received from the three motels, as required by state law. The councilman said he would return the checks if they constituted a campaign violation, but otherwise wouldn't commit to giving back the money.

A criminal and constitutional law professor at UC Hastings College of the Law, said De La Fuente had no moral obligation to return the motel money. "It's not unethical for him to keep it, but in my opinion it's not a very smart political practice." Oakland city attorneys fought for nearly two years to close the Economy Inn at 122 E. 12th St. at the southwest corner of Lake Merritt, citing multiple incidents of women being kidnapped and forced to work there as prostitutes. Khatri, who lives in Castro Valley, was unavailable to speak Friday, but his son, Jay Khatri, said De La Fuente had not solicited the donations. The Khatri-owned motels haven't donated to other candidates running for city office this year, according to campaign filings.

"I still believe that he is innocent of rape."

-- March 5, 2007, Statement by Oakland City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente Sr., regarding his son's earlier plea of Guilty to two counts of rape, one charge of assault to commit rape.

Oakland, CA (2007-05-03 19:02:00 PDT) -- In a surprise deal during his rape trial, Ignacio De La Fuente Jr., the son (pictured right) of a prominent Oakland politician pleaded guilty to five felony sex charges today, admitting to raping or sexually assaulting his four accusers. The surprise plea came just a week after the trial began for De La Fuente Jr. He is accused of raping four women in four separate incidents between October 2003 and just before his arrest in April 2005.

De La Fuente Jr. pleaded guilty to two counts of rape, one charge of assault to commit rape, one count of forcible oral copulation and one charge of forced digital penetration. "He pleaded 'guilty,' not 'no contest' -- he personally admitted to the crimes."

He pleaded guilty to the five charges this morning in Alameda County Superior Court under a plea agreement that allows him to avoid a possible sentence of 75 years to life and instead serve a total sentence of 14 years, his attorneys and court officials said. With credit for time served and good behavior, De La Fuente Jr. could serve 12 years of his sentence and be paroled in about 10 years. But if the California Department Corrections and Rehabilitation deems him a sexually violent predator, he could be incarcerated for much longer, possibly for life.

The senior De La Fuente, the number two in last year's mayoral race, has long touted his tough approach to crime.


[Podcast (Excerpt) With Video Over Voice: City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente says he still believes his son is innocent.]

Council President De La Fuente, who sat in the courtroom nearly every day of the case, said he supports [his] son. "I still believe that he is innocent of rape," he said in an interview after the hearing. "I would have supported him if he wanted to fight these charges, and I support his decision to accept a plea," De La Fuente said. "I really feel that there were problems with the witnesses. But this was tough case. I think he was singled out because he was my son. It's a very sad day for our family. I love my son and I will always love him no matter what."

City attorneys cited 16 prostitution-related incidents at the Economy Inn in a well-publicized 2010 legal action against the motel. The lawsuit noted one Oct. 2010 incident in which police rescued a woman who had been kidnapped in San Diego and transported to the motel, where she was tortured with a whip and a lighter, sodomized and forced into prostitution.

There's nothing illegal about De La Fuente accepting campaign funds from the motel. Always a prolific fundraiser, De La Fuente collected $89,560 in campaign cash between mid-August and the end of September, far outpacing other city candidates during that period. De La Fuente is fighting an uphill battle to stay on the council after giving up the seat he's held for 20 years representing Oakland's Fruitvale district to take on Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan for the seat representing the entire city. A poll conducted late last month by the pro-business Jobs and Housing Coalition showed Kaplan leading De La Fuente 39 to 23 percent in the five-candidate field.

OAKLAND, CA -- Councilwoman Desley Brooks (pictured left) has ignored campaign disclosure law for years, records show, making it impossible to know exactly what she has done with thousands of dollars in campaign donations and public matching funds. Brooks was fined $400 last month for failing to submit her 2011 campaign contribution disclosure reports -- her second campaign disclosure-related fine since winning office in 2002.

But a review of her filings with the City Clerk's Office shows numerous violations for which city and state officials have never held her accountable.

Brooks has failed to submit state-mandated semiannual campaign disclosure statements for six filing periods dating to 2006.

In 2010, Brooks twice invented her own time period for submitting campaign contributions and expenditures after missing earlier state-mandated deadlines.

That same year Brooks failed to name four contributors who donated a combined $1,500 to her re-election bid.

Also in 2010, she received $8,900 from contributors for whom she listed no valid occupation or employer. State law required her to return those contributions.

By far Brooks' most alarming recurring issue is that her campaign figures simply don't add up. Eight times since 2002 her campaign fund's ending cash balance for one reporting period was different from the beginning cash balance for the following period.

The city initially tried to make Brooks fix her mistakes, but as her violations continued, both city and state watchdog agencies chose to ignore the transgressions, even though she received $12,769 in public campaign matching funds. Though there is no evidence that Brooks has pocketed campaign contributions, the multitude of errors, including bad math, dating back 10 years makes it impossible to get a reliable accounting of Brooks' funds, said Mari Lee, a campaign treasurer whose clients include three Oakland council members.

"These filings are an absolute travesty," Lee said after inspecting them at this paper's request. "Without an audit being done there's no way of knowing how much money she raised and how much she spent."

History of violations

Brooks, who didn't return phone calls and refused requests to go over her filings in person, said in an email that she was unaware of both the accounting errors and her failure to file required reports.

The City Clerk's Office this year ordered her to correct her error-laden 2010 filings after this paper informed the office of the violations. But Brooks wrote that she couldn't comply because the information about her contributors was stored on her computer, which had been stolen.

State campaign finance law requires candidates to disclose the names, addresses, occupations and employers of contributors who give more than $100 and to file semiannual reports during non-election years -- obligations that Brooks, an attorney, has often ignored since first running for office in 2002.

In 2004, Oakland's Public Ethics Commission fined her $250 for failing to provide required background information for 37 contributors to her successful 2002 council bid.

That same year the commission forwarded its concerns about Brooks' campaign records to the state's Fair Political Practices Commission. The commission declined to investigate, citing limited staff resources, said Gary Winuk, chief of the commission's enforcement division.

Brooks continued violating campaign rules after she was fined, but faced no additional penalty until last month, when the state commission, acting on an anonymous tip, fined her $400 for failing to submit the two semiannual disclosure reports for 2011.

Winuk said the commission hadn't been alerted that other filings also were missing or that the filings on record were full of mistakes. "Now that we know," he said, "we're going to follow up on it."

Violations detailed

Brooks' frequent accounting discrepancies began in 2002 when she recorded a negative campaign balance of $11,768 for the filing period ending June 30. Yet that deficit was somehow wiped clean and she began the next filing period beginning July 1 with a balance of zero.

In 2008, the only campaign statement she filed showed an ending balance of $1,675. But her following statement, which wasn't filed until 2010, showed a beginning balance of $4,000.

When Brooks last month filed her campaign statement for the first half of 2012, the beginning balance was $1,353 less than the ending balance for her previous filing.

Records show that in 2005 Brooks made her sister, Darleen Brooks, her campaign treasurer at which point her disclosure errors became both more numerous and bizarre.

In a 2007 statement, Brooks listed $40,126 in contributions and $41,149 in payments for the year, but never detailed a single contribution or payment as required.

Facing re-election in 2010, Brooks was required to disclose her campaign contributions and expenditures at the end of June and September. She skipped both those deadlines and created her own filing period: Jan. 1 through Oct. 5.

That filing lacked required information for many contributors, including their employers and occupations.

In four cases, Brooks listed at least the contributor's address and donation, but neglected to include the contributor's name.

The filing also included a major math error, which caused her ending balance for the period to be undervalued by $4,000. The incorrect figure was carried over into her next campaign disclosure report, rendering it incorrect, as well.

"It doesn't appear the city has the will to enforce the law," said Bob Stearns, an attorney who helped write the state's campaign disclosure rules. "If nobody is telling her that her statements are terrible, she's going to continue doing this."

No oversight

Assistant city clerk Tamika Thomas said state regulations require her office to accept campaign filings "regardless of their conditions" and that the clerk's office lacked both the authority to initiate investigations and the staffing to closely inspect the filings.

Thomas said it's up to the city's Public Ethics Commission to investigate campaign law violations. But the commission didn't meet at all for nine months after its director retired last year.

"There doesn't appear to be anyone right now capable of providing oversight," said Ralph Kanz, who served on the commission when it fined Brooks in 2004. "Because the ethics commission has been so understaffed and not provided the resources it needs, it's been unable to keep up with these things."

Although city clerks aren't required to inspect campaign filings, Winuk said many of them file complaints with the state after candidates fail to correct errors.

"We get them all the time," he said.

10 OPD Lawbreakers Re-hired!

February 22, 2011

The 10 officers, who will fill vacancies in the patrol division, are: Jo Balaoro, Gordon Dorham, Mark Douglas, James Duncan, Ronald Freeman, Terry Jones, John Keating, John McDonell, Francisco Negrete and Nathaniel Walker. The money to pay for the 10 returning officers comes from a combination of officers retiring and saving money on overtime. "It is clear that we are in a tough situation because of the budget funding, but what I was hoping to do is try to maximize the number of officers within the budget."

Suspect Down!

January 27, 2011

OAKLAND, CA -- Officers shot and killed a man armed with two guns after a car chase that began when two suspects shot up an East Oakland block Wednesday afternoon, police said. Police opened fire after telling one of the suspects, identified Thursday as Martin Flenaugh, 19 (a Caucasian male) of Oakland, to put down his guns and cooperate with officers (Oscar Grant was unarmed and cooperating!). When he refused, they opened fire, killing him.

The shooting by police came after the suspects' red Infiniti crashed into another car at 85th Avenue and San Leandro Street, eventually bursting into flames. Police said the driver, identified Thursday as Jereme Brown, 24, of Oakland, ran away but was captured and arrested. Brown was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.

Officer Holly Joshi said the two suspects began randomly shooting at people in the 7600 block of Lockwood Street about 4:10 p.m. Joshi said that the area is not a "known hot spot" for crime and that police don't know why the area was targeted. Several pedestrians, motorists and a woman trying to put her child in a car were among those targeted, but no one was hit or wounded. "It was a blessing that no one was injured by the suspects," Joshi said. People who witnessed the shooting called police. The suspects' car was spotted by officers leaving the Eastmont substation, and a chase began.

During the 10-minute pursuit, the suspects got onto northbound Interstate 880 at Hegenberger Road, exited near the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum and went east on San Leandro Street until they crashed into an uninvolved motorist at 85th Street. The motorist was not severely injured.

Joshi declined to say whether the suspect pointed his weapons at the officers before he was shot.



Joshi said the police radio system was down during half of the chase, which meant dispatchers could not communicate with officers but officers could talk to one another. Because of that, she said, the medical response to the shooting was delayed, though it was unclear how long. "The radio system is something we've had trouble with in the past," Joshi said.

Joshi said the officer who shot the suspect has been put on paid administrative leave for at least three days while the Alameda County District Attorney's Office and the Oakland Police Department's internal affairs division investigate the shooting.

OPD Criminals Hired By OHAPD!


July 29, 2010

(Sergeant Kenneth Nielson sits among five former Oakland Police Officers and two new Oakland Housing Authority Academy graduates being sworn into their positions as Oakland Housing Authority Police Officers on Thursday July 29, 2010 at the Oakland Housing Authority offices in Oakland Calif. Immediately after the new officers received their badges Nielson was sworn into his new position of Sergeant with the Oakland Housing Authority.)

[A] former sergeant, Marcus Santiago, with the notoriously corrupt Oakland Housing Authority Police Department has become head of the San Francisco Park Patrol. From 1985 to 1993, Santiago was an officer and supervisor with the scandal-plagued Oakland Housing Authority Police Department. Documents, interviews, and news reports show that during his time there, officers routinely beat up and stole from suspects, planted drugs on them, and lied about it in police reports and at trial. The security force was so notoriously corrupt that it became the target of local and federal investigations. Four officers went to prison. Steven Gore, the onetime Alameda County Public Defender's Office investigator whose sleuthing helped bring the corruption to light, believed there was sufficient evidence to prosecute many more. "The idea that just four of these guys went to prison and Santiago continued as a sergeant was absurd," he said.

( Former Oakland Police Officers Melissa Baddie, Mike Quijano and Qiana Johnson, left to right, pose for a personal picture after being sworn in as Oakland Housing Authority Officers at the Oakland Housing Authority Offices in Oakland Calif. on Thursday, July 29, 2010.)

A 1991 60 Minutes segment characterized the 20-person force as riddled with corruption. "They would go cruising in these cars, do an illegal search, and plant drugs on somebody, and use that as a basis to cite them and search them," said Gore, who was heavily featured in the segment. Chief Ranger Marcus Santiago has transformed the park patrol from five part-time docents into a security force of 20 officers, supervisors, and support staff charged with guarding city parks and recreational facilities. It became an overtime cash machine after he enforced a 2004 rule requiring holders of park event permits to pay rangers to staff their events. During the past two years (2008-2010) he has managed to more than double his own pay with overtime, adding an extra $151,652 to his regular salary. Santiago has a troubling past, one he may not have been fully forthright about when he applied for the chief ranger position in 2003.

[S]ix of the 80 officers laid off July 13 have been hired by the Oakland Housing Authority. Five of the six were sworn in Thursday at the housing authority's headquarters downtown and will begin regular patrol next week. Housing authority police Chief Carel J. Duplessis said the agency recently increased its force to 32 from 25 to patrol the authority's 269 properties. He said 35 laid-off Oakland officers interviewed for the jobs and the six hired "were the best candidates to support the housing authority's goals and objectives." The former Oakland officers are Melissa Baddie, Gordon Dorham, Arzo Homayun, Qiana Johnson, Michael Quijano and Alexis Nash. Their starting annual salary is about $62,400.

The 80 layoffs have in one instance possibly ended the generational legacy of one family of Oakland officers. Leah Supriano, 25, the only single mom of those laid off, is the daughter of veteran Officer Robert Supriano. There is even more uncertainty for the 21 men and women who are still going through an Alameda County Sheriff's Office academy who were originally hired by Oakland. The city has paid their tuition but they are no longer receiving a salary and have been told when they graduate in October there will be no job for them in Oakland. Because of the sheriff's academy's reputation for turning out solid professionals, they could be hired elsewhere. But their first choice was Oakland and not working there is especially difficult for a half-dozen who were cadets in Oakland. One of them is Jared Blue-Lowry, 20, who spent 18 months as a cadet.

Witness Hit List!


July 7, 2010

OAKLAND -- Yusuf Bey IV's longtime lawyer smuggled a hit list out of jail in March that named witnesses her client wanted killed to prevent their testimony in his upcoming trial on charges of ordering journalist Chauncey Bailey and two others killed in 2007, according to court papers filed Tuesday. The attorney, Lorna Patton Brown (pictured left, standing to right of defendant Yusef Bey, IV) "smuggled written communication and materials out of Santa Rita Jail (in Dublin) without the authorization of the sheriff's department and delivered the unlawful communication to others" on six occasions, an affidavit in the filing states. It also states she has smuggled unidentified materials into the jail for Bey IV. Brown also received "documents from others and passed them on to Bey IV" in jail, the affidavit states. She resigned as his lawyer on April 16. Brown had represented Bey IV and his late father, Your Black Muslim Bakery founder Yusuf Bey, in several felony cases. On one of the documents she smuggled out of the jail "witnesses' names had been highlighted" so that (a hit man) would know who "he would have to kill so they would not be available to testify at Bey IV's pending murder trial," states the affidavit written by Inspector Kathleen Boyovich (a liar who aides the District Attorney in false prosecutions) of the Alameda County district attorney's office. The affidavit does not say whether Brown knew why the names were highlighted. Her attorney, Spencer Strellis, declined to comment Tuesday and Brown did not return a message. She has not been charged with a crime. The penal code section cited in the affidavit is a misdemeanor.

C.J. Note: A white woman conspires to commit murder of witnesses in a criminal trial and faces only misdemeanor charges. We note the "uncle tom" cop wasn't charged at all, and retained a taxpayer funded position.

The affidavit also states that Bey IV routinely tries to circumvent recording devices during jail visits by "whispering and lip syncing." In those communications he had tried to intimidate witnesses and asked them to lie and destroy evidence, Boyovich wrote. Brown smuggled the transcript out of the jail in early March. It was in a package of "manila envelopes banded together" and addressed by Brown, "To: Rasoul Bey. From: Yusuf Bey IV." Rasoul Bey is a name sometimes used by bakery follower Gary Popoff (pictured above, left) who has described himself as Bey IV's No. 1 soldier. Brown later told investigators that she met a woman named Aishia Taylor, who is known as Ayeshia Bey, on an Oakland street corner and gave her the package, the affidavit states. She first tried to claim attorney-client privilege in the matter, then waived it, Boyovich wrote. That night, inspectors and Oakland Police pulled over Popoff and arrested him. The envelopes were on the dashboard of his car. It is not stated in court papers how investigators learned of the plot. Popoff was on parole for a drug charge. In April, a hearing officer ruled that possession of documents smuggled out of jail was a parole violation and ordered him returned to state prison. The affidavit states that Popoff and Bey IV are likely to face charges of attempting to kill witnesses. No one was harmed. Two witnesses have been relocated for their safety.

Boyovich's affidavit was included in court papers filed Tuesday in a real estate fraud case against Bey IV. He wants to represent himself in the matter. Deputy District Attorney David Lim wrote in papers he should be denied the usual privilege -- given to inmates who represent themselves -- of unrecorded phone calls "due to concerns for public and witness safety." Bey IV's attorney in the matter, Theodore Johnson, said he had not yet seen the papers and declined to comment. Also in the envelope was a note Bey IV wrote to his former common-law-wife, Tiffany Wade, stating: "I have something else I want done and it's in the letter to Gary" and urging Wade to destroy other, unidentified documents before police find them, "Please!!!" A text message was later recovered from Popoff's phone that had been sent by Bey IV's sister, Jannah Bey. "I saw 4th yesterday. He wanted me to ask (you) if (you) can copy the letter Aishah has for you in your own handwriting" and discard the original.

Boyovich wrote that before and after the six visits during which Brown smuggled papers in and out of the jail, Bey IV phoned family members and followers and told them either to get materials to Brown or that she would have materials for them. Some of those documents are related to what is described as Bey IV's attempt to get followers to launch a website for him entitled "Your Black Resurrection in America Association." A previous website, Freethebakerybrothers.com, was short-lived after the lawyers of several of his co-defendants urged their clients to take it down. Bey IV "believes the (new) website would be financially beneficial to himself and his family," Boyovich wrote. A hearing on his request to be his own lawyer is scheduled for Friday.
She also stated that Bey IV said in a recorded jail phone call to a family member that he wanted to represent himself in the real estate case so he can make unmonitored phone calls about the new website.

A change of venue motion in his triple murder case is scheduled to begin July 19. He is charged with ordering Bailey and two others, Odell Roberson and Michael Wills, shot dead. His co-defendant, Antoine Mackey is charged with helping to kill Bailey and Roberson and with shooting Wills. A then bakery follower, Devaughndre Broussard, has pleaded guilty to killing Bailey and Roberson and told a grand jury that Bey IV ordered the three killings.

Update:

Longmire - Bey Talk


September 4, 2009

In recorded jail telephone conversations calls after the killing of journalist Chauncey Bailey, Yusef Bey IV seems to think of suspended police Sgt. Derwin Longmire (pictured left) as the bakery's protector. Longmire had more undocumented contact with former Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV and his family than previously has been made public, recorded phone calls reveal.

They include recored conversations and text messages between Longmire, the then-homicide detective and Bey IV in early 2008. The calls included Bey IV's common-law wife and sister about the Bailey case, according to phone recordings. None of the calls are mentioned in Longmire's case notes, according to copies of those documents.

Listen to the podcast:



Michael Rains, Longmire's lawyer, said Bey IV (pictured left) and his family members have no credibility and that the sergeant, who is suspended with pay pending his termination, did nothing wrong. Rains insisted in an interview with the Chauncey Bailey Project on Tuesday that Longmire should be returned to duty. Rains said a decision on the firing is expected within the week.

Longmire "got calls from Bey IV," Rains said, adding that Longmire told other officers about the calls and was not hiding anything. "He knew Bey IV was responsible" for Bailey's killing but lacked enough evidence to charge him.


Indicted



April 17, 2009 In October 2008, the media reported that Sgt. Derwin Longmire, OPD Homicide, failed to document in his case notes evidence that pointed to a conspiracy to kill Oakland Post Editor Chauncey Bailey involving Yusef Bey IV. The evidence not documented included a report on a tracking device hidden on Bey IV's car that showed it parked outside Bailey's apartment seven hours before the killing. Police Department e-mails obtained under a public records act request show communication at the highest levels between the department and the district attorney's office about the Bailey case. E-mails show Deputy Police Chief Jeffrey Israel e-mailed District Attorney Tom Orloff what was described as "the Bey IV document" within days of the Media's October reportage about undocumented evidence. Israel then reported to Jordan that he had sent the document, but details about the document where blacked out by the city attorney's office before its release, and the attached document was not made public. A top Oakland official credited the media with keeping alive the investigation. "The reporters are doing a better job than we are," City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente said. Investigators for both the department and the state Office of the Attorney General found Longmire's relationship with the former Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV was inappropriate. Longmire (pictured left) was put on paid administrative leave late Monday, April 13, 2009. An Oakland officer with deep investigative experience said, based on what he knows about Longmire's actions, that dismissal from the force is warranted. "Those are firing offenses. Everyone in the department knew there was a lot wrong with how this case was investigated," the officer said. "Not putting the tracking information in his notes" was a significant problem, the officer said. "That clearly showed that (Bey IV) was involved by driving [Devaughndre] Broussard to Bailey's house hours before the killing." Documents also showed that Longmire interfered in a 2005 investigation of Bey IV for ransacking two liquor stores. Bey IV eventually pleaded guilty. The gun used to kill Bailey was stolen from one of the stores. Longmire apparently did not document all his contacts with Bey IV, despite being ordered to because it was widely known in the department that he was "closely associated" with the bakery and the Bey family, an officer said Tuesday. Bey IV is jailed awaiting trial on a slew of criminal charges and is now publicly accuses of ordering one of his followers, Devaughndre Broussard, to kill Bailey 20 months ago.

Media Questions

• Why was so much critical evidence that seems to point to a conspiracy to kill Bailey — a video of Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV mocking the killing, an interview of a bakery worker who said Bey IV bragged that the slaying was a testament to his power — not included in lead detective Sgt. Derwin Longmire's case notes as required by department policy? • Why did Longmire's case notes not include information from a tracking device that showed Bey IV was outside Bailey's apartment seven hours before the killing? • Were Longmire's mistakes intentional to protect his friend Bey IV as Bey IV himself bragged on a secretly recorded police video? Or were they symptomatic of how badly broken the department is? • Can authorities win a conviction with the only person charged in the killing, bakery handyman Devaughndre Broussard, confessing to multiple murders committed out of misguided loyalty to Bey IV? Will authorities ever be able to charge anyone else in connection with Bailey's death? • What will the fallout be from media's published revelations that Oakland has the lowest homicide clearance rate in the state for a city of its size and that police leaders are unable to even agree on statistics? • How much confidence, if any, should Oakland residents have that public accountability will emerge from the state and local investigations of Longmire's handling of the Bailey case and how his bosses, Lt. Ersie Joyner III and Deputy Chief Jeff Loman, supervised his work? An Attorney who represents the officers (Mike Rains) denies Longmire or Joyner did anything wrong. The media also reported in October 2008 that Longmire repeatedly talked to Bey IV (pictured left - center) in jail by phone at last year. His case notes, in which the department procedure manual requires the recording of significant events, contain no entries since January 2008. The calls were made months later. Sgt. Derwin Longmire's phone calls with jailed former Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV as well as separate allegations that Bey IV provided women to Longmire for sexual favors are being investigated. Late last year, a confidential informant told investigators from the Alameda County District Attorney's Office that Bey IV bragged in jail that Longmire was a "sympathizer" to the bakery, and Bey IV said he provided women to Longmire for sexual favors. The informant also claimed that Bey IV said he ordered Bailey killed. Longmire spoke with Bey IV at least twice last year in a three-way conversation with Bey IV's common-law wife, who had received calls from Bey IV at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. In one late night call in June 2008, Longmire told Bey IV they had always "gotten along like brothers should," even as Longmire investigated Bailey's (pictured left) killing and that their friendship would endure. After that call, Bey IV told his wife that Longmire "ain't tripping" over news stories questioning why he wasn't charged in the Bailey case. Longmire, he said, "should come be my bodyguard. I'd pay him more." The calls were never mentioned in Longmire case notes of his investigation into Bailey's killing — a killing Bey IV is suspected of ordering. In numerous jailhouse calls obtained by The Chauncey Bailey Project, Bey IV frequently mentions Longmire, sometimes calling him "LM," and urges his wife to call and send text messages to the sergeant. In one instance in June, the day that reporters from The Chauncey Bailey Project interviewed him in jail, Bey IV told his wife to prepare a written statement about the Bailey case, but to fax it to Longmire when it was finished. "Call LM so he can have it," Bey IV said. When his wife referred to the sergeant as Longmire, Bey IV snapped, "I said LM for a reason. If I want to say his name, I'll say his name." Jail calls are automatically recorded. A retired Boston police lieutenant who now teaches criminology at Boston University said it is "unprecedented' and "malfeasance" that a homicide investigator would be having conversations with a jailed suspect and his family. "They are looking at this guy (Bey IV) for complicity in a murder," said Thomas Nolan. "There is clearly an association" between Bey IV and Longmire. "There is something to hide here," Nolan said. In one phone call, Longmire said he would defend his friendship with Bey IV — charged with multiple felonies — despite criticism.
Before Broussard's confession, Longmire left Bey IV alone with Broussard for seven minutes, not recording their conversation. Bey IV was later secretly taped saying he ordered Broussard to take blame for the killing and that Longmire was protecting him from charges.

The Confession

Devaughndre Broussard (pictured left) described in detail how he carried out orders from the leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery to kill Oakland journalist Chauncey Bailey, including specific instructions to fire enough rounds to make sure "it ain't no coming back." The 21-year-old former handyman for the bakery chillingly and nonchalantly took prosecutor Chris Lamiero step by step March 23 and 24, 2009 through the events surrounding the slayings of the Oakland Post editor and another man. Both shootings, he said, were ordered by Yusuf Bey IV, the leader of the bakery, a now-defunct black empowerment group. Bey, said Broussard, was closely involved in the planning of Bailey's slaying, even going over details with Broussard and another man from the bakery of how the journalist could be killed as the three talked outside Bailey's Oakland apartment. Broussard gave his version of the killing and events before and afterward as part of an agreement under which he will plead guilty to two counts of voluntary manslaughter in exchange for a 25-year sentence and a promise to testify against Bey, 23. He is expected to testify next week before a grand jury that is considering whether Bey should be charged in the slaying of Bailey, 57, who was shot repeatedly on a downtown Oakland street as he walked to work Aug. 2, 2007. On the order of Yusuf Bey IV, Devaughndre Broussard and Antoine Mackey in July 2007 lured a homeless man to a dark corner where he was shot dead after raising his hands over his head, according to a statement Broussard gave prosecutors last month. Broussard told Lamiero that Bey ordered him to follow and then kill Odell Roberson, a transient drug addict who was the uncle of the man ultimately convicted of killing Bey's brother, Antar Bey, in a botched robbery in October 2005. For weeks, Broussard said, Bey IV, then the leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery, told him to follow the man, Odell Roberson, in preparation for killing him. The reason, he said, was revenge for the 2005 killing of Bey IV's brother, Antar Bey, by Roberson's nephew, Alonza Phillips. On the night of July 8, 2007, Broussard, Mackey and Bey IV were "talking and chopping it up" when Bey IV suddenly gave the order: Roberson's time was up. Broussard told investigators from the Alameda County District Attorney's Office that he took Roberson to a dark spot on Herzog Street, where Mackey passed him an assault rifle, according to a transcript of the interview. "I took the safety off and pointed it at him," Broussard said. "He tried to break. I'm like, stop, then he turned around and put his hands up and I (shot) him. "... Then he probably turned and I know I just kept hitting him. "... His body hopped off the ground and moved a couple of inches." In addition to detailing the slayings of Bailey and Roberson, Broussard said in the interview that Bey IV kept a "hit list" of people he wanted killed for "revenge, retribution." Broussard said that Bey IV also told him to be ready to kill others in Phillips' family in retribution for the slaying of Antar Bey — plans that were still being developed when police raided the bakery Aug. 3, 2007, the day after Bailey was killed. Broussard also told investigators that Mackey told him he shot and killed Wills. Broussard said he was at the bakery and heard shots. Moments later, Mackey and Bey IV rushed in. Broussard said he followed Mackey to his room where Mackey described the killing. "He said the dude tried to run and then he shot him," Broussard said, adding that Mackey was laughing and described himself as the cartoon character Elmer Fudd out hunting. "I ran over there and I went to look" at where the killing happened a few blocks from the bakery. "Yusuf was like, 'Go look for yourself.'"‰" Broussard said he dressed in jogging clothes so he could claim he was exercising if police stopped him. As he neared Wills' body, he said he heard a woman yell, "Somebody killed that boy! Somebody killed that boy!" Wills apparently was a random target chosen because he was white, according to the Broussard's account. Broussard said Mackey told him he and Bey IV were discussing the 1970 Zebra Killings in San Francisco, in which African-Americans had killed whites, when they saw Wills, a chef who lived nearby, who was walking home from a convenience store after finishing work. A few days later, Broussard said Bey IV "said we got a devil. "... He was cocky like." Both Bey IV and his late father, bakery founder Yusuf Bey, have often referred to whites as "devils" while preaching. Lt. Ersie Joyner (pictured left), who supervised Longmire's investigation of Bailey's killing, and Deputy Chief Jeffrey Loman, face discipline for not properly supervising the Bailey case. At the time of Bailey's killing, Loman was a captain in charge of the Criminal Investigation Division. Joyner reported to him. The two were former homicide-unit partners. Sources said the two men and Longmire are close personal friends. A female sergeant has filed a sexual harassment complaint against Deputy Police Chief Jeff Loman. Loman (pictured left) has been put on leave with pay pending the outcome of an investigation involving sexual harassment. Loman's lawyer said her client did nothing wrong. "There is no truth to any of the allegations," said Alison Berry Wilkinson, a San Rafael attorney. "And we are looking forward to an exoneration."
