United States ~ Modesto, CA -- Modesto authorities announced arrests in the killing of 26-year-old Korey Kauffman. Officials say nine suspects all played a role in the murder. An arrest warrant says Modesto attorney Frank Carson orchestrated the killing. Carson is a prominent Central Valley lawyer. Police say Carson believed Kaufman was stealing valuable antiques from storage containers on his property. Kauffman was on his way to steal from Carson when he disappeared, according to a 326-page court filing police used to get arrest warrants. Kauffman was reported missing in April 2012. His body was found by hunters in August 2013 in a remote area of Central California. Read More @ American Cops, Teachers & Predators ~ 2015!

Cops that Sexually Offend! - Part XIII



«•June 16, 2009•»

Bryan, Texas - Police Chief Ty Morrow resigned Monday (June 15, 2009) afternoon following a lengthy investigation into a family violence call made to his home. With City Manager David Watkins standing beside him at a press conference, Morrow said his personal conduct off duty has compromised his ability to lead the agency. Two sergeants responded to Morrow’s home after the chief called police at 12:43 a.m. on a Sunday in November (2008) and said an argument with his wife had become physical and he handcuffed her. He was placed on paid administrative leave the next day and has not returned to work since.

Joseph E. Wild


June 23, 2009

PORTLAND, Ore. - The allegations that a Portland police officer repeatedly called and harassed women are an embarrasment to the Police Bureau, Police Chief Rosie Sizer said Monday.

"We hold public trust as the most important thing we have as police officers and when allegations surface of an employee betraying that public trust, I think it hurts the heart of every police officer," she said.

"These allegations tarnish the badge we wear," said Scott Westerman with the Portland Police Association. "They tarnish the badge of everyone in the country."


Joseph E. Wild, 28, faces dozens of charges of official misconduct and telephonic harassment. He was indicted by a grand jury on Monday, June 22, 2009 and will be formally charged on Tuesday, June 23, 2009.

According to investigators, police began looking into Wild's activities when a woman filed a report that she had been receiving unwanted harassing phone calls from him. During the investigation, detectives discovered additional victims who said they had also received unwanted phone calls.

Wild was arrested just this month, which raises the question of why it took four months for police to finally make a move.





Court documents show someone using Officer Wild's police-issued cell phone made sexually explicit phone calls to fellow police officers starting back in February. As the Police Bureau began its investigation, Wild's phone number became the subject of a second investigation a month later. A teenage girl said someone with Wild's phone number called her dozens of times and kept threatening to rape her.

"In this case, as soon as the info was brought to our attention, the tendency is to rush right out, take the cell phone, put him on leave and then do the investigation," said Lt. Bob Day with the Portland Police Bureau. "The problem is, we react too quickly, we can't gather the correct information and that can hurt the investigation."


Vinson Walker


June 23, 2009

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A Cuyahoga County Common Pleas jury found Garfield Heights police officer Vinson Walker not guilty Tuesday on charges of gross sexual imposition, attempted rape and rape. Walker, 30, was accused of inappropriately touching a 22-year-old woman on three occasions, trying to force her to have sex, and eventually raping her on Nov. 16, 2008 at his Cleveland home. The crimes were said to have occurred while he was off-duty. Walker has remained on paid leave since Cleveland police arrested him at the Garfield Heights police station Nov. 26, 2008. It was unclear if Walker would return to regular duty after the acquittal.


NOT-GUILTY DOES NOT MEAN INNOCENT. IT ONLY MEANS THAT THE JURY DECIDED THERE WAS A REASONABLE DOUBT BECAUSE IT WAS A HE SAID/SHE SAID TRIAL.

In fact, the prosecution [proffered] testimony from other women [regarding Walker's sexually offensive character] that was suppressed by the judge. The court did this "so as not to prejudice the jury". If the defense attorney had opened the door, this testimony would then have been allowed. Of course this didn't happen, so the jury didn't get the opportunity to hear what these other women had to say.

1. How can an officer get pay for 7 months without his guilt or innocence being known?

2. Did the city plan his not-guilty plea by having a certain Police Captain on the force testifying for him?


Thomas Tolstoy


October 7, 2010Update!

Officer Thomas Tolstoy, the serial rapist on Officer Jeffrey Cujdik’s "elite" narco-police shake-down squad, who, besides participating in repeated evidence-less paramilitary drug raids, also repeatedly took the opportunity to pull women aside during these hyperviolent home invasions and sexually assault them. The police department’s response to three independent complaints from April 2008 to February 2009 was to temporarily place Tolstoy on desk duty (from October 2008 to January 2009), then put him back on the street to do more drug raids with Cujdik. The other stories about Cujdik’s wolfpack appeared in local newspapers in March 2009; Tolstoy was finally put back on desk duty in May 2009. Meanwhile, while Tolstoy is rewarded for his sexual assaults with an easy desk job, he continues to receive not only his regular salary of $57,800, but also thousands of dollars in overtime pay for sitting his ass on a court-house bench while the DA extends subpoenas on tainted drug cases in which he will almost certainly never testify. The bill for maintaining Tolstoy in the lifestyle to which he has become accustomed will, of course, be sent along to Philadelphia taxpayers, including Tolstoy’s three known victims. Deputy District Attorney John Delaney explains that the D.A.’s office continues to issue these money-wasting subpoenas on dead-end cases because "We want to maintain the status quo." No doubt.

June 21, 2009

The burly narcotics officer yanked down the young woman's underwear as they stood in the doorway of her second-floor Frankford apartment, she said. The officer - one of 10 who participated in a drug raid of the apartment downstairs - allegedly jammed his fingers into her vagina. When she tried to pull away, he grabbed her hard enough to rip her shirt, she said.

The penetration of his fingers was so forceful that she began to bleed. She said she thought he had scratched her - or worse, caused internal damage. A few hours later, she ended up at Episcopal Hospital. Nurses ordered a rape kit and alerted the police Special Victims Unit.

The night was Oct. 16, 2008 and the woman didn't know the name of the officer. But the police Internal Affairs Bureau had a hunch: "Despite the lack of photo identification at the scene, there was other information that caused us to narrow the scope," said Internal Affairs Chief Inspector Anthony DiLacqua. "We had evidence presented to us that gave us reason to look at [Officer Thomas Tolstoy] more closely than other officers." Tolstoy was immediately taken off the street (eight (8) months later).

One of Tolstoy's alleged victim[s], "Naomi," is an intensely private 24-year-old woman. She has never been charged with or convicted of a crime. The [media] convinced her to talk about the night she says she wants to forget. At her request, the [media] agreed to use a false name - Naomi - to protect her privacy and because she's terrified of retaliation. She has had so many threatening phone calls - telling her not to talk - that she has repeatedly changed her phone number, she said. She said she went to the hospital after the assault simply to "get checked out." "I felt nasty after it," she said with a grimace. "I didn't know where his hands had been. I felt like with the force he used, like he scratched me."

Naomi is one of at least three women who say Tolstoy fondled, groped or sexually violated them during drug raids. Lady Gonzalez, 29, of Kensington, and Dagma Rodriguez, 33, of West Kensington, have alleged that Tolstoy stroked their breasts during raids. The [media] reported their allegations on June 1, 2009. None of the three women has a criminal record. The women don't know each other and spoke with the [media] independently only after reporters tracked them down.

Tolstoy, 35, a 10-year-veteran of the force who has been with the Narcotics Field Unit since December 2002, is one focus of a growing FBI and police probe into allegations of police misconduct. The alleged misconduct was first reported by the [media] in February with complaints that Tolstoy's fellow squad member, Officer Jeffrey Cujdik, sometimes lied on search-warrant applications to get into suspected drug homes. In March, the [media] reported that Cujdik, Tolstoy and other officers disabled surveillance cameras during raids of bodegas and smoke shops that sold tiny ziplock bags, which police consider drug paraphernalia. After the officers sliced or yanked the wires, thousands of dollars in cash and merchandise went missing, the merchants said. Now the probe has grown to include allegations that Tolstoy abused women during [these same] raids.

Naomi said a detective from Internal Affairs called her on June 4, 2009 to ask if she "wanted to press charges and go to court." She told him no. "I just want it to go away," Naomi said. "Most days I wish I had never gone to the hospital." "The Police Department should take away his badge," said Naomi's boyfriend, Raheem, 23, who was at the Frankford apartment during the October raid. The [media] is withholding Raheem's last name to protect Naomi's identity. "They're supposed to serve and protect. But this officer violated her as a woman. He touched on her and threatened her," said Raheem, who wasn't arrested during the raid. "It wasn't right."

The April 3, 2008 Raid

It was just after 5 p.m. on April 3, 2008, during a drug raid on the West Kensington rowhouse where she lived. Officer Thomas Tolstoy had ordered her into the room, telling her that he needed to talk, she said. Dagma Rodriguez stood in a dark bedroom as Officer Tolstoy moved closer. She trembled in fear.

"He started rubbing my breasts, rubbing my nipples," said Rodriguez, a 33-year-old mother of three. "I was so scared. My legs wouldn't stop shaking."

Rodriguez said she grabbed Tolstoy's wrists to try to make him stop. He didn't, she said.

" 'You've got some big t--s. I love these t--s. I bet you've got big bras. What size are you?' " she said he asked. " 'Can I see them? Let me see them.' "

"I said, 'No! No!' I was so nervous, I started crying. He told me to shut the f--- up . . . . He kept rubbing me and I started crying more."


On May 20, 2009 Tolstoy became the fourth officer to be taken off the street in connection with an expanding FBI and Internal Affairs investigation into allegations of police misconduct.

That alleged misconduct was first reported by the media in February (2009) with complaints about Narcotics Field Unit Officer Jeffrey Cujdik, Tolstoy's fellow squad member. One of Cujdik's informants told the media that Cujdik sometimes lied on search-warrant applications to get into suspected drug homes.

The scandal expanded in March (2009) after the [media] reported that Cujdik, Tolstoy and other officers disabled surveillance cameras during raids of mom-and-pop stores that sold tiny ziplock bags, which police consider drug paraphernalia. After the officers cut or yanked the wires, thousands of dollars in cash and merchandise went missing, the merchants said.

Rodriguez is one of at least three women, including Lady Gonzalez, of Kensington, who say they were fondled and groped by an officer. Rodriguez and Gonzalez later identified the officer as Tolstoy. Police sources say that Tolstoy is also the focus of an investigation into the third woman's complaint.

Tolstoy has been placed on desk duty, taking reports of minor crimes over the phone, said Internal Affairs Chief Inspector Anthony DiLacqua.

Tolstoy had to relinquish his police-issued weapon "due to an Internal Affairs investigation," said DiLacqua, who declined to elaborate.

Asked whether Tolstoy is under increased supervision, DiLacqua replied, "In a sense, yes. He's not in the field. His supervisor could be sitting two or three desks down.

Louis Alvie Morris


June 16, 2009

STILLWATER, Oklahoma -- Stillwater police have arrested a veteran Stillwater police officer accused of committing lewd acts with a 15-year-old student. Louis Alvie Morris, 48, is now facing two counts of rape by instrumentation and three counts of lewd acts to a child. Morris worked as a school resource officer at Stillwater Junior High School. A court affidavit shows the girl dated Morris' 16-year-old son for about a month. Morris allegedly told a fellow officer about the relationship but denied having sex with the girl.

Stillwater police said "department members are deeply disappointed and disgusted in the actions of a veteran officer."

SAN JOSE, Calif. (WCJB) -- Police in San Jose are investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting that occurred on Monday night, according to authorities. The shooting happened at about 6:54 p.m. on Kirkhaven Court at Stoneyhaven Way. The suspect was pronounced deceased at the scene. So far, authorities have issued no information regarding the suspect or the circumstances surrounding the shooting. No one else was injured. San Jose police will provide more information as it becomes available.

The incident comes after another fatal officer-involved shooting on Sunday that left a suspect in a homicide at a North San Jose office park last Thursday dead. Sunday's incident was the department's seventh officer-involved shooting in 2015 and the third one in a week, police said. The officer-involved shooting will be reviewed by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office and San Jose police internal affairs unit.

On Aug. 9, Edrian Rivera, 22, was shot and killed by two officers in the area of San Antonio Avenue and Packing Place, according to police.

On Aug. 10, Aaron James Phillips, 30, who was reportedly intoxicated and armed at a home on San Marcos Drive, was shot at by officers. Following a standoff, Phillips was found dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

Jailed & Bailed!

Cincinnati, Ohio -- Thursday morning Judge Megan Shanahan set bond at $1 million for former UCPD officer Ray Tensing. Tensing fatally shot Samuel DuBose during a traffic stop July 19. Tensing is facing a murder charge. He has posted bond and been released from jail. Shanahan allowed Tensing to post 10 percent of the bond. Hamilton County Court records indicate his father posted $100,085 to get his son out of jail.

Posted: Jul 29, 2015 09:25 PM PDT ~ Updated: Jul 30, 2015 03:32 PM PDT


Cincinnati, Ohio -- Ray Tensing, a University of Cincinnati police officer, went to jail on a murder charge Wednesday. He is the first officer in Cincinnati to face murder charges for killing someone in the line of duty. His own body camera video showed him shooting an unarmed motorist in the head during a traffic stop. The video proved to be crucial evidence to the grand jurors who indicted Tensing. The video stunned city officials, prosecutors and the relatives of shooting victim Samuel DuBose.


Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said after publicly releasing the video: "It's an absolute tragedy that anyone would behave in this manner. It was senseless. It's just horrible. He purposefully killed him." The video is a reminder that video, whether captured by witnesses; on smart phones; or by police officers themselves, is transforming the way fatal encounters involving police are investigated and perceived around the nation. The body camera video is likely to be a key piece of evidence at the trial.

The video shows that Tensing stopped DuBose in Mount Auburn on July 19 for driving without a front license plate. Tensing asks DuBose to take off his seat belt. DuBose says: "I didn't even do nothing." Dubose turns his ignition key, starting the car. Tensing then reaches into the car with one hand and, with the other, fires a single shot into DuBose's head. Tensing speaks to him for a little less than two minutes before the fatal shot is fired. DuBose did not appear to be belligerent or aggressive toward the officer before the shot was fired.

Tensing though his lawyer said feared he would be run over. He said charging his client with murder was "absolutely unwarranted." He said he expected an indictment, but on lesser charges. "Murder is the purposeful killing of another," the attorney said. "There wasn't any purpose to kill this fella." Tensing, 25, faces 15 years to life in prison if he's convicted.

"I think it's safe to say that this case is going to help the cause of body cameras across the country," Mayor John Cranley said. "I think we all hoped that the charges that would come out of the grand jury would match the video. We wanted the right thing to be done." The murder charge came after 12 Hamilton County citizens reviewed evidence all day Monday as part of their grand jury investigation into the incident.

The shooting had put the city on edge and rekindled worries about the sometimes strained relationship between police and blacks in Cincinnati. Cranley and other city officials asked neighborhood activists to help keep the peace. They said the city has changed since the riots and unrest that followed a fatal shooting of an unarmed black man by police in 2001. City officials said they were optimistic the reaction this time would be peaceful. However, City officials were taking no chances. Cincinnati police prepared for possible protests and unrest. UC's campus shut down and classes were canceled Wednesday in anticipation of the announcement. Ohio Highway Patrol troopers were seen arriving on campus by late morning. As of Wednesday night, they remained hopeful. Several small demonstrations and prayer services took place across the city, but no trouble was reported.

One big change since the 2001 shooting is the existence of the video. The video gave police, prosecutors and everyone else in the community a view of the incident. A view we would not have had a decade ago, or even a few years ago. Instead of trying to piece together a timeline based only on statements from witnesses and officers at the scene, investigators had a real-time account of the shooting they could play back again and again.

DuBose's relatives, who buried him Tuesday, said they, too, were grateful for the video. His mother, Audrey DuBose, wondered if she'd ever know what really happened and feared prosecutors would blindly accept the word of the officer who killed her son. "I'm so thankful that everything was uncovered," she said. "Everything is being revealed. I can rest now." DuBose's sister, Terina Allen, said the video and the work of the grand jurors made it possible to pursue the first-ever murder case against a police officer in Cincinnati. "I am pleased we will get some kind of justice," she said. "My brother was about to be just another stereotype and that didn't happen."

The traffic stop seemed to begin normally enough. Tensing stopped DuBose at Rice and Valencia streets in Mount Auburn. Tensing works for UC and the stop occurred about a half-mile from campus. University's officers are permitted to patrol in areas where many students live off campus. He got out of his cruiser and approached the driver's side of DuBose's car. The video shows some casual back-and-forth between Tensing and DuBose over whether he has a suspended driver's license. Officer Tensing then asks DuBose to take off his seat belt. At that point, DuBose tells the officer, "I didn't even do nothing." He then starts the car and Tensing reaches inside the vehicle. The shot is fired seconds later.

Deters, whose office reviews all shootings involving police officers, said he's never seen a case of such poor policing. Even if DuBose was attempting to drive away, he said, Tensing should have let him go. "He wasn't dealing with someone wanted for murder. He was dealing with someone without a front license plate," Deters said, describing that offense as "chicken crap stuff."

"Some people want to believe Mr. DuBose did something violent toward the officer," Deters said. "He did not. He did not at all." He said DuBose had marijuana in the car and about $2,600 cash. "He might have had marijuana, but you don't deserve to be executed for something like that," Deters said.

Tensing, who was fired by UC after the indictment came out Wednesday, turned himself in and was booked into the Justice Center Wednesday afternoon. In addition to the murder charge, he was indicted on a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter as an option for jurors during trial.

Deters, who refused to release the video before the grand jury finished his work, said it was crucial to the investigation and he did not want it to influence witnesses or grand jurors. He said he showed the video and discussed the murder charge with DuBose's family Wednesday morning.

"I feel sorry for his family. I feel sorry for the community, too," Deters said. "This should not happen. Ever."

Mathews, Tensing's attorney, interprets the video and what it depicts differently from the prosecutor. He said his client was knocked to the ground after trying to grab the keys from the ignition to prevent DuBose from driving away and possibly running him over.

DuBose "sticks his keys in the ignition, jams (his car) into drive and floors it," Mathews said. He said a second video, from another officer's body camera, shows Tensing on the ground.

Mathews said his client told him, "I thought I was going to get sucked under the car and run over."

In the video, Tensing falls after the shot is fired. He then gets up and chases the car, yelling to dispatchers that he is OK but that a shot was fired.

Mark O'Mara, the lawyer representing DuBose's family, said he was stunned by the video and relieved prosecutors quickly took the case to the grand jury. He said authorities in Cincinnati have so far handled the case better than many other cities that have dealt with shootings by police officers.

"Cincinnati is showing us how to do this right," O'Mara said.

Tensing has been a police officer for just over four years. He joined the village of Greenhills police force part-time in April 2011 and stayed on at Greenhills through December, even after he started working full-time at UC.

He was hired at UC in April 2014.

Deters said Tensing's actions during the traffic stop show that "he never should have been a police officer." He said UC could not have known if Tensing was a bad officer when he was hired, but he also suggested the university should get out of the law enforcement business.

Deters, a UC graduate, said the city of Cincinnati should take over campus patrols and the UC police force should be disbanded.

"They're not cops," he said of UC police. "Being a police officer shouldn't be the role of this university."

City and university officials didn't discuss the future of UC's police department Wednesday, but they all expressed hope that the grand jury's decision would be seen as fair and just to the community and to DuBose's family.

"This officer was wrong. And when we're wrong, we have to be held accountable," said Cincinnati City Manager Harry Black. "People are provocative and they're filming us, and it's a tough job.

"It's the most difficult policing environment in the history of our nation, but that doesn't excuse bad behavior."

At least some community activists agreed with that assessment Wednesday, after days of speculation about how the case might be handled and what the grand jury would do.

Bishop Bobby Hilton, of the Word Deliverance Church in Forest Park, said people should welcome the actions taken Wednesday, regardless of how angry or sad or frustrated they are about the shooting.

"There should be no unrest. There's unrest when people feel like they're not being heard," Hilton said. "What more can you ask for? As terrible as it is, it should be a proud moment for our community. We can prove that we can take the most horrible incident and show the world how our community reacts and becomes better."

@Curtis Lemanski Right. Since you and the cops already know the suspects are guilty, better to save all that valuable cop time and those taxpayer dollars, and just let the crooks die. While you're at it, why not save us taxpayers even more money, and dispense with those bothersome judges and juries, eh? According to your philosophy, they're just a waste of time with these already-guilty "arrestees."

Los Angeles, CA -- A video released by the Los Angeles County Superior Court shows the arrest of Alesia Thomas on July 22, 2012. The arrest was captured on a police dashboard camera. The video showed Los Angeles Police Officer Mary O'Callaghan (pictured above, center-right) striking Alesia Thomas, 35 (pictured below, center) with an open hand and kicking her in the crotch. Thomas was handcuffed during the assault by O'Callaghan during the arrest in 2012. Thomas complained she couldn't breathe after the assault. O’Callaghan then can be seen smoking a cigarette on the street, as Alesia Thomas fell unconscious. Thomas died shortly thereafter in the back of the squad car. Thomas had asked officers for an ambulance more than 30 minutes before one was called. O’Callaghan was convicted of assault under color of authority on June 5, 2015.


On Thursday, inside a downtown L.A. courtroom, Sandra Thomas took the witness stand. She addressed the judge before the sentencing of LAPD Officer Mary O'Callaghan. She spoke about the Los Angeles police officer she holds responsible for her daughter's death. “I have to ask God to help me learn how to forgive her.” Sandra Thomas, who works as a medical assistant, asked why O'Callaghan didn't show her daughter more sympathy and try to revive her. “You have to show compassion for people,” she said. “It makes me feel like she wanted that to happen.”

During sentencing, O'Callaghan made her first public comments since Alesia Thomas' death and her arrest for assault. When O'Callaghan's addressed the court, she faced Sandra Thomas instead of the judge. “Mother to mother,” O'Callaghan, a 50-year-old mother of three, said through tears, “I am extremely sorry for the loss of your daughter.” O'Callaghan, a Marine veteran who had been with the LAPD for nearly 18 years, said she prays every day for Alesia Thomas' children.

After the emotional testimony, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Sam Ohta sentenced O'Callaghan to 36 months in jail, with the last 20 months suspended, meaning she could be released within five months with good behavior.

The case against O'Callaghan has attracted intense scrutiny amid the national criticism of excessive use of force by police. The video evidence at trial underscored the value of monitoring police encounters with patrol and body cameras. The jury forewoman in O'Callaghan's trial said the video played “a big role” in the jury's decision to find her guilty. One camera recorded conduct outside the vehicle while another documented activity inside the patrol car. That camera recorded O'Callaghan's assault and showed Thomas losing consciousness.

Thomas can be heard on the video saying, “I can't move. I can't breathe,” as O'Callaghan directs her into the back seat of the car. As O'Callaghan gives Thomas commands about where to place her feet, Thomas says, “I can't, I can't.” The officer then screamed a profanity at Thomas and struck her throat with an open hand. Thomas then glances directly at the camera with wide open eyes. The officer tells Thomas she'll get “crushed” if she doesn't move her feet. As Thomas begins to sit up, O'Callaghan jams her boot into Thomas' groin three times. When O'Callaghan tries to readjust a nylon restraint around Thomas' feet, she compares it to “roping cattle.” After the assault, the footage shows O'Callaghan smoking a cigarette. When she realizes Thomas is unconscious, O'Callaghan says, “That ain't a good sign.”


The LAPD is outfitting its officers with body cameras. Policy approved by the Los Angeles Police Commission in April required officers to turn their cameras on before most investigative or enforcement activities involving the public. “It should be clear to everyone that the LAPD and the criminal justice system will hold officers accountable for their actions when they operate outside the law,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said in a statement after O'Callaghan's sentencing.

O'Callaghan was not charged in connection with Thomas' death. An autopsy by the Los Angeles County coroner determined that cocaine intoxication was probably a “major factor” in the death. It wasn't possible to determine what role, if any, the struggle with O'Callaghan or other officers who took part in the arrest played in her death. The official cause was listed as “undetermined.”

O'Callaghan's attorney said his client had been relieved of duty by the LAPD pending the outcome of the trial. He said she will be fired because of her felony conviction and will also lose a job as an emergency dispatcher in Vermont that she got after her arrest. He criticized Ohta's sentence as “excessively longer” than the 180 days in jail and probation the district attorney's office had recommended. “I wasn't shocked because this case has been politicized since Day One,'' he said.

Goode Ole' Boys!

Southhaven, Mississippi -- A video has surfaced of Mississippi Police hog-tying a concert attendee, Troy Goode. The man was an attendant at the "Widespread Panic" performance Saturday night.

The video shows the last moments Troy Goode is seen alive in public. The witnesses recorded this video and made commentary indicative of a less than serious encounter. The video visually confirms that the 30-year-old engineer was hogtied. The Southhaven police demanded they stop recording. The videographers complied. The witnesses even expressed fear that recording the incident would cause police to arrest them as bystanders. We suspect they had little reason to censor witnesses at the scene if everything was done “by the book” during Mr. Goode’s tragic demise. Goode leaves a 15 month old son and a young widow.


Citizen journalists and witnesses alike are urged to record horizontally to provide the most details of an encounter. Horizontal recording is crucial when the video recording contains the tragic last moments of a fellow citizen killed at the hands of the police.

The recording is also from a great distance and doesn’t utilize zoom to provide a better visual record. However, the witnesses noted Goode’s hogtied position while being carted face down into an ambulance on a stretcher by multiple law enforcement officers and first responders.

Police suspect that Goode was under the influence of one or multiple intoxicants at the time of the incident. Toxicology reports take several weeks to complete. The report will reveal Troy Goode’s actual blood content of intoxicants.

“Designer drugs,” marketed as bath salts, or labeled: “Not Safe For Human Consumption,” are not easily detectable. Some “Designer drugs” cannot be detected in the system at all. The Miami Zombie incident was perpetuated by a young man who unexpectedly walked three miles naked across a causeway. His toxicology reports only indicated marijuana. However, other substances are still strongly suspected as catalysts for that incident.

Imperfect Self-defense!

Posted: Jul 14, 2015 7:25 AM PDT ~ Updated: Aug. 2, 2015 03:42 PM PDT


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The city of Charlotte has stopped paying the legal bills for Officer Randall Kerrick in a wrongful death civil suit filed by the mother of Jonathan Ferrell. Ferrel is the unarmed man Kerrick shot and killed last year. Ferrell's mother filed a lawsuit against Kerrick. The city has to date spent over $20,000 defending Kerrick in the lawsuit.

Kerrick shot Ferrell after Ferrell drove his car off a road in a residential west Charlotte neighborhood last fall. A neighbor called police to report a possible home invasion after Ferrell knocked loudly on a front door, presumably looking for help. Ferrell was one of three officers called to the scene. He fired his service weapon 12 times, striking Ferrell 10 times. The shooting was captured on at least one police dashboard camera. However, the video tape has never been released to the public.


The city had been in the awkward position of paying Kerrick's defense fees. At the time they were paying his legal fees, they were charging him with voluntary manslaughter for shooting Ferrell. City Manager Ron Carlee issued a statement saying to pay for Kerrick's defense, under the circumstances, "would be inconsistent and untenable". "A 1977 City Council policy provides that the City will not defend a lawsuit against an employee who willfully acted in a manner as to constitute a criminal act," Carlee said in his statement. Carlee's statement went on to say that if Kerrick is found not guilty of the criminal charge, "policy dictates that the city would then provide a defense."

Todd Walther, president of the Charlotte Chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police said, "We still support Officer Kerrick." Walther said Kerrick could apply to the Chapter for help in paying the costs of his defense in the civil suit.

CHARLOTTE, NC (WCJB) -- Officer Randall Kerrick (pictured above, center-right) is on trial for voluntary manslaughter. Voluntary manslaughter is defined as killing someone without malice. The doctrine of "imperfect self-defense" and excessive use of force are included in the definition. The heart of the trial will center around Officer Kerrick's training and whether he believed his life was at risk in exercising use of force. Investigators say in 2013, 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell (pictured above, center-left) wrecked his car around 2:30 a.m. He had just dropped a friend off at home. He ran down an embankment on Reedy Creek Road and kicked out the rear window of his car to get out. The first house he reached was about one-tenth of a mile away.

Homeowner Sarah McCartney called 911. She said Ferrell was pounding on her door and she was scared he would kick down the door. Her husband was not home and she had a baby in the house. Eleven minutes later, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officers arrived on the scene and encountered Ferrell. Police say Ferrell was on a road leading to the neighborhood pool. CMPD says Officer Thornell Little unsuccessfully fired his taser at Ferrell. Kerrick drew his service weapon and fired weapon 12 times. Ten bullets struck and killed Ferrell. Only part of the encounter between the two men was captured on dash cam.


The facts that have been released through the police investigation and pre-trial motions remain in dispute. Former Police Chief Rodney Monroe made the decision to charge Kerrick within hours of the shooting. He said that Kerrick used excessive force. The State argues Ferrell feared for his life when police shined their spotlights on him and that no identification or commands were given. Ferrell happened to run between a gap in the patrol cars where Kerrick was standing, said Special Deputy Attorneys General Adren Harris and Steven Arborgast in court documents. This is where prosecutors for the State and defense attorneys differ in their accounts.

Defense attorneys say Ferrell came aggressively toward the officer. They argue that Kerrick and the other two officers were responding to a 911 call about a potential home invasion in the Bradfield Farms subdivision in east Mecklenburg. Kerrick's defense attorneys say Ferrell ignored verbal commands and failed to show his hands upon request. Defense attorneys also say the State failed to preserve blood samples which they wanted for further drug testing. The standard state lab tests show Ferrell was not intoxicated, but had been drinking.

Around 9:15 Monday morning, Kerrick arrived at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse. His fate will be in the hands of 12 men and women selected to sit on the jury. Undoubtedly, many of the jurors will have followed the case or at least heard about the shooting of Ferrell. Judge Robert Ervin will ask all the jurors to forget what they know and dwell only on the facts presented in the courtroom. The jury is expected to hear and see at least eight weeks of evidence. Some of the evidence will include expert witnesses. The case file amounts to more than 24,000 pages which the State has handed over to the defense.

Kerrick could be found guilty, acquitted of the charge, or the trial could end in a mistrial with a hung jury unable to reach unanimous verdict. If convicted, Kerrick could be sentenced from three to seven years in prison.

Kerrick was on the force two years before the shooting. Ferrell had recently moved to Charlotte to be with his fiancee, Cache Heidel. He played football for Florida A&M University and was raised in Tallahassee. The City of Charlotte settled a wrongful death lawsuit with the Ferrell family for $2.25 million dollars weeks before the scheduled trial. Georgia and Willie Ferrell, the mother and brother of Jonathan Ferrell, are expected to speak at 11 a.m. Monday at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center.

CMPD is preparing for the possibility of protestors during the trial. Newly named Chief Kerr Putney has been involved in several community meetings aimed at reducing racial tension between police and the community.

Charlotte has been spared the riots and violent protests that other cities have seen in the wake of officer-involved shootings of unarmed men. However, no one can predict what a jury will decide and how the community will react.

Toddler Justice!

"I think it is pretty straightforward. The child is under seven and is under what is called the age of reason[.]"

-- Nicole S. Urdang, a psychotherapist and licensed mental health counselor in Buffalo, N.Y.


KANSAS CITY, MO -- A 5-year-old girl is facing possible murder charges for allegedly drowning a toddler who was crying too much. Police are waiting for a medical examiner's report on how Jermane Johnson Jr., died, but are investigating the death as a homicide, spokesman Darin Snapp said Thursday. "I've been in law enforcement for 20 years and it's the youngest suspect I can remember," Snapp said. "It's extremely rare." Johnson, 18 months old, was in a Kansas City house on June 3rd with other children at the time of his death. Police say a 16-year-old relative who was supposed to be babysitting suffers from a mental disorder. She was sleeping when the drowning happened at around midnight.


An adult left the teenager in charge of several young children, including Jermane, so they could pick up the boys father at a bus stop. The father had come into town from St. Louis to retrieve Jermane and take him home. Investigators learned through interviews that a 5-year-old girl in the house got irritated with her young cousin, Snapp said. "She said she got angry because he would not stop crying and she held him under the water in a bathtub until he stopped crying," Snapp said. The tub had not been emptied after the youngsters to a bath earlier in the evening. Snapp said a decision on to handle the case will be left up to prosecutors after the medical examiner's report is released. Police say they are also looking into other aspects of the case, including the welfare of other children in the home and the decision to leave the children alone.

Brothers in Homicide!

September 15, 2010

A Coweta County firefighter is facing multiple charges in the death of the 2-year-old son of his fiancee. Casey Allen Spradlin, 25, faces counts of felony murder, malice murder, first-degree cruelty to children and aggravated battery in the death of Brayden Robinson, said John Bankhead, spokesman for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

On Sept. 3, 2010 emergency personnel responded to a 911 call from a residence in Luthersville, Bankhead said. Inside the home they found Brayden unresponsive and he was airlifted to Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta. Brayden later died from his injuries.

Spradlin, who was caring for Brayden at the time, told officials the boy had been injured in a fall. But medical personnel who treated Brayden were skeptical, and investigators determined that the child died from blunt force head trauma, not a fall, Bankhead said. Spradlin was arrested Tuesday in Meriwether County. He is being held without bond in the Meriwether County jail.

NYPD Updates!

NYPD Blue Beats!

August 30, 2010

Queens, NY -- Larry Jackson is a six-year veteran assigned to the 110th Precinct of the NYPD. His wife called 911 for help against a gang of thugs. Jackson says he was brutally beaten by baton-wielding fellow officers who stormed his Queens home. Jackson suffered a broken right hand and multiple bruises from kicks and billy-club blows. Jackson said he got his injuries from the men in blue called to his home after a gunman menaced guests at his daughter’s birthday party.

“To get my butt beat like that was unnecessary,” Jackson said. “We called the police, and this is what happened to me.” Jackson is black. He said the excessive force by the cops, who were white, might have been racially motivated. “They didn’t treat me like a house-owner calling for help,” he said. “Everyone who lives in the 113th Precinct is not a perp.”

Jackson’s wife, Charlene, made a 911 call around 1:15 a.m. Sunday as her unarmed husband faced down thugs armed with a gun and bats. The men who showed up as partygoers, started leaving his home in Rochdale. “I told the 911 operator it’s my daughter’s 21st birthday and my husband is a police officer and there’s a young man with a gun,” she said.

Larry Jackson, wearing an apron with the slogan, “I’m the chef and I’m awesome,” said he did not identify himself to the street thugs as a cop. However, he was able to convince them to leave. They were slinking off when the first patrol car from the 113th Precinct roared up and a sergeant got out. Charlene Jackson said she tried to tell the sergeant what happened when her niece yelled from the house that there was a fight inside.

The sergeant’s driver ran inside and struck a friend of the family with his baton, the Jacksons said. The sergeant then pushed Larry Jackson with his baton. When Jackson grabbed the sergeant, another cop began choking him from behind. Jackson was knocked down and fell on his 82-year-old mother-in-law who briefly lost consciousness, he said. “I’m covering my face and getting hit everywhere,” he said. “Then somebody pepper sprayed me.” The couple said cops hit at least six family members and friends with batons. Their stepson, a cousin and a nephew were charged with disorderly conduct.

Grand Jury Fails!

August 14, 2009

A white NYPD officer was cleared by a grand jury in the shooting of an off-duty black cop. Undercover cop Andrew Dunton, who fired a half-dozen shots during the deadly Harlem street showdown, faces no criminal charges in the May 28, 2009 killing of Officer Omar Edwards. The grand jury heard from 20 people - including police and medical witnesses - before returning its decision.

"The grand jury's finding that Officer Dunton had not committed a crime did not mean that race was not a contributing factor in Officer Edwards' death."

--Rep. Charles Rangel (D-Harlem) August 14, 2009.


Edwards, 28, was off-duty with his gun drawn while chasing a auto burglary suspect. The grand jury relied on testimony by the burglary suspect Miguel Goita. According to police, after his arrest, Goita told police that Edwards "tried to kill me."

C.J. Question: If Edwards was trying to "kill" the burglary suspect Miguel Goita, why didn't he just shoot, instead of attempting an apprehension?

"It remains questionable whether the grand jury examined the actions of Officer Dunton, or merely the actions of the alleged thief in a confused, mixed presentation." New York prosecutors declined any comment.

Angie Clark!

November 12, 2009

LILLINGTON - A Lee County deputy has been charged with murder in the July shooting death of her estranged husband. Angie Renee Clark, 40, of the 200 block of Ripley Road in Cameron, was charged Tuesday, according to an arrest report from the Harnett County Sheriff's Office. Clark turned herself in at the Sheriff's Office after a grand jury handed up an indictment Tuesday, the report said. She is accused of fatally shooting Michael Clark, 44, outside the couple's house on Beehive Lane in Broadway on June 10, 2009. Clark was off-duty when the shooting happened. The couple had been separated for about four years, according to family members, and Michael Clark was trying to reconcile with his wife. Court records show Angie Clark had filed two domestic violence orders in the past eight years, including one in December. Clark had been on administrative leave from the Lee County Sheriff's Office since the shooting. Sheriff's officials couldn't be reached for comment this afternoon. Clark's bail was set at $25,000.

June 11, 2009

Broadway, N.C. — An off-duty Lee County sheriff's deputy is on paid administrative leave Thursday night after investigators say she fatally shot her estranged husband at their home in Broadway. Harnett County deputies responded to the home of Michael and Angie Clark at 8 Bee Hive Lane at 10:22 p.m. Wednesday after a report of a shooting there. Michael Clark, 44, died at the scene, deputies said. Michael Clark's father said that the couple had a rocky marriage which involved "physical abuse on both ends." "We don’t know if it was a justified shooting or an unjustified shooting ... I hate my son is gone," said Jerome Clark.


According to court records, Angie Clark took out a domestic violence protective order against her husband in 2001 and last December. In the most recent case, she said her husband shot at her car. She also claimed he threatened to "kill all of you" before paying child support. In January, however, she voluntarily dismissed the case.

Jerome Clark said the two had been married about six years and had five children. They were separated and living separately, he added. "He loved his kids very dearly. Whatever it took for him to provide for those kids, he did. He’d give his entire heart,” said Melinda Frederick, victim's sister. "The investigation has indicated that the victim was shot by his wife, Angie Clark, age 40, of the same address," Harnett County authorities wrote in a news release Thursday. "There have been no charges filed in the case and no other information will be released at this time."

Lee County Sheriff Tracy Carter said he knew the couple had been separated, but was not aware of any serious problems. "And she's done a good job. She gets along well with people in her shift and in the community, and we've been real pleased with her,” Carter said. Michael Clark's body was sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Chapel Hill for an autopsy. Investigators would not say whether the gun used in the shooting was the one Angie Clark carried on the job. She has been a deputy in Lee County for about two and a half years.

James ParkerUpdate

Dec. 11, 2009

SEBRING -- It looks like the prosecution will not be seeking the death penalty against former Avon Park police officer James Parker. Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin was not in the Highlands County Courthouse Thursday morning for Parker's pretrial conference and stand-in David Ward could not advise when Judge Peter Estrada asked whether the state would be seeking death. However, Parker's public defender told Estrada he had spoken with Houchin and was told the state would not be seeking the death penalty. If they were, Mills continued, he would have insisted on using a court reporter at Thursday's hearing. Estrada noted for the record that no court reporter was present. He added that, while he couldn't speak for the state, it was his understanding that the decision had gone through the assistant state attorney's death penalty committee. "I have halted my penalty phase preparations," he said. The PD asked that the case be continued until March so he and Houchin can go through other discovery issues and set depositions. Estrada granted the continuance and the next court date is March 18, 2010. Parker, 33, is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse that stem from the death of 22-month-old Kaedyn Short earlier this year. Short died May 27, 2009 at a hospice home where she was being cared for in her final days. She was the daughter of Parker's former live-in girlfriend and had been on life support at a St. Petersburg hospital for some time after being hospitalized for severe injuries she suffered March 29, 2009. The child, then 20 months, was initially brought to Highlands Regional Medical Center with multiple bruises and an apparent skull fracture. Her mother, Jennifer Short, was at work at the time of the incident and Parker was watching the child, according to the Highlands County Sheriff's Office. Jennifer Short was also indicted in June on felony counts of failure to report child abuse and neglect of a child causing great bodily harm. June 27, 2009 A Highlands County grand jury returned an indictment June 24, 2009 charging former Avon Park police officer James Parker with the [First Degree] murder of 22-month-old Kaedyn Short. The grand jury also charged Parker, 32, with aggravated child abuse. His first court appearance was set for a June 25, 2009. Parker remain[ed] in the Highlands County Jail in lieu of a $250,000 bail stemming from the initial child abuse charge. May 27, 2009 AVON PARK - A 22-month-old girl who authorities say was severely injured by Avon Park police officer James Parker died from her injuries today. Kaedyn Short passed away at 9:38 a.m. at a hospice home where she was being cared for in her final days, according to a Highlands County Sheriff's Office press release. Short was the daughter of Parker's former live-in girlfriend and had been on life support for some time after being hospitalized for multiple bruises and an apparent skull fracture March 29, 2009. On March 29, 2009 deputies with the sheriff's office were called to Highlands Regional Medical Center after Short, then 20 months old, was being brought into the emergency room with multiple bruises on her body and an apparent skull fracture. Doctors told deputies that Short suffered multiple skull fractures and she was going to be transferred. Because of weather conditions, a helicopter could not get to Highlands Regional. Instead, a mobile pediatric unit from All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg was sent to Sebring to pick her up. Her mother was at work at the time of the incident and Parker was reportedly watching the child, the press release stated. Parker was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse, domestic violence related, and remains in the Highlands County Jail in lieu of a $250,000 bond. On June 26, 2004, Parker (pictured left) was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge involving his former wife. He entered into a diversion program and the state attorney's office eventually deferred prosecution. He was also involved in a 2008 New Year's Eve ruckus involving Pete and Sue Diaz of Avon Park. The couple was recently acquitted by a jury on battery charges against Parker. Parker has been with the Avon Park Police Department since 2006, and was previously employed by the department for roughly 20 months between 2002 and 2004. He was placed on administrative leave without pay pending further investigation. At Parker's May bond hearing, sheriff's office Det. Tyrone Tyson said there was evidence of older injuries on the child, including a two-month-old fractured right collarbone and a broken elbow, which occurred about a week prior to March 29, 2009. On May 4, 2009 attorney Richard Pipkin, speaking on behalf of Short's mother, had told a court room gathered for Parker's bond hearing that the child was being taken off life support. If she did live, doctors said she would be a vegetative state, the attorney had added. The sheriff's office is continuing to investigate the case, along with the state attorney's office, District 10 Medical Examiner's Office and the Department of Children and Families. Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin could not comment Wednesday afternoon if his office will file first-degree murder charges against Parker. "Naturally, the autopsy will be the next step," Houchin said.

Jose Castillo

June 9, 2009 His job was to uphold the law, but a Harris County Precinct 6 reserve deputy constable is now on the other side of the law, KPRC Local 2 reported Monday. Angel Erevia, 31, had a daughter, Angelina, who just turned 1 on Sunday. Now she's left without a father. "He was a sweet person," said Erevia's mother, Santos Rodriguez. "He always helped people." Houston Police said reserve deputy constable Jose Castillo shot Erevia to death. "What kind of law do we have if they can just go up to somebody and shoot them like an animal?" asked Rodriguez. Police said that at about 2 a.m. Friday, the two men's girlfriends got into a fight inside Buffalo Fred's on North Shepherd Drive. Employees kicked everyone out who was involved, and police said Castillo, 39, was one of them. But the fight didn't end there. "I just remember the gunshots," said Erevia's girlfriend, Araceli Sanchez, who witnessed the shooting. Police said Castillo (pictured left) shot four times. Sanchez said Erevia never had a chance. "He wasn't even armed," said Sanchez. "He's just not that type person." Erevia died before he got to the hospital. "I don't have no alternative but to terminate him," Harris County Precinct 6 Constable Victor Trevino said. Castillo had been working as a reserve deputy as a volunteer for 14 years. Trevino said he was never on the Precinct's payroll and had no disciplinary problems. "He seemed like a family guy, a hard working guy," said Trevino. "I was shocked." Castillo is no longer a peace officer. Instead, he's charged with murder. "They need to put him away. He took a life," said Sanchez. Castillo made an arrangement with HPD to turn himself in. He'll be held on $100,000 bond. HPD said he already admitted to the shooting in a written statement, but said it was self-defense.

Gregory Conner

March 5, 2009 A reserve officer with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has been arrested on charges of attempted murder and aggravated stalking. Greg Conner, 48, was taken into custody Thursday outside a fast food restaurant on State Road 71 South. Conner is also the firing range master and a firearms instructor for Chipola College, and had once been a full-time deputy with JCSO. According to a press release from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (see below), an investigation “revealed that Conner intended to kill his (estranged) wife and her boyfriend.”
News Release from Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement - For Immediate Release
March 5, 2009 The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) today arrested Gregory Conner, 48, in Marianna, Fla. for attempted murder and aggravated stalking. The joint investigation revealed that Conner intended to kill his wife and her boyfriend. FDLE and JCSO arrested Conner after confirming his intent to carry out his plans. Conner was an auxiliary Deputy Sheriff with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and was immediately removed from his position by Sheriff Roberts. “I am disappointed with Conner’s actions,” said Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts. “I am glad that Conner and his family were unharmed in the incident.” The State Attorney’s Office for the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit assisted in the investigation. Conner was booked into the Jackson County Correctional Facility.
Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts said Conner and his wife had been separated for some time, and that JCSO investigators had received information [...] that Conner was stalking her and her boyfriend. According to Roberts, Conner had been seen at odd hours in the area of his wife’s home in the Grand Ridge/Shady Grove area and the boyfriend’s dwelling, which are some distance apart. Roberts said officers had confronted Conner at one point, and he had denied stalking the couple. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) got involved [...] after receiving further information about Conner’s alleged plans. Concern grew as authorities from FDLE and JCSO ramped up their investigation Wednesday evening, said Tommy Ford of FDLE. According to Ford, it appeared that Conner was progressing toward a plan of murder and that “overt acts” had been taken in the planning process. He and Roberts declined to give details of the surveillance and other investigative techniques employed which led authorities to that conclusion. They would reveal little further information except to say that it did not appear to be a ‘murder for hire’ plot but rather something that Conner planned to carry out himself. Unspecified evidence has been gathered in the case, Ford and Roberts said. While they would not reveal any particulars, Ford and Roberts agreed that the alleged plan was an elaborate one that, if carried out, would have involved sudden death and would have had the clear earmarks of homicide. The alleged plan was “unfolding rapidly” [...] when Conner’s wife, boyfriend, and the two Conner children were moved to a place of safety overnight, according to Ford. Conner was arrested Thursday outside a fast food restaurant on State Road 71 South. He offered no resistance and the arrest was without incident, Roberts and Ford said. Conner was booked into the Jackson County Correctional Facility. For years, Conner was the person who most often greeted Roberts and his officers when they arrived at the local firing range to do the quarterly shooting necessary to keep them qualified for weapons.
