The Heroic Proof!

Posted: 8:29 PM EST, Mon January 13, 2014 - Updated: 1:29 AM PST, Wed. January 15, 2014


Santa Ana, CA (WCJB) -- A jury has acquitted two former Fullerton, California, police officers on trial in the beating death of Kelly Thomas, a mentally ill and homeless man. The verdict was read in a Santa Ana courtroom Monday afternoon. Eight women and four men began deliberating the case on Thursday.

"I'm just horrified. They got away with murdering my son," Cathy Thomas, the victim's mother, told reporters after the verdict was read. The victim's father, Ron Thomas, said that everyone now needs to be afraid. "This is carte blanche to police officers to do whatever they want," he told reporters.

The beating of Thomas in a transit parking lot was recorded by security cameras on the night of July 5, 2011. The surveillance camera footage shows Thomas being beaten, clubbed and stunned with a Taser by police. The video sparked a nationwide outcry.

Former officer Manuel Ramos was charged with second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. A second former Fullerton officer, Jay Cicinelli, was charged with involuntary manslaughter and excessive use of force.


Both were found not guilty on all charges.

"These peace officers were doing their job. They had no malice in their heart," said an attorney for Ramos.

When asked about the video, he said it's "not the entire case."

In closing arguments, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas told jurors that Ramos bore responsibility for Thomas's death because he issued a threat to the uncooperative homeless man. Ramos can be seen on the surveillance video putting on gloves and shaking his fist in Thomas' face.

Fullerton, CA -- Police officer Manuel Ramos was charged with second-degree murder in Thomas' death, and Cpl. Jay Cicinelli faces involuntary manslaughter and excessive use of force charges.

"'You see my fist? Now they're getting to ready to Fuck you up[.]'"

-- Statement made by Manuel Ramos, 37, a 10-year veteran of the Fullerton Police Department to Kelly Thomas before he proceeded to beat him to death, with the assistance of six other Fullerton Police Officers.


Los Angeles, CA (WCJB) -- A Fullerton, California, police officer charged with second-degree murder in the beating death of a mentally ill homeless man was released from jail Thursday after posting a bond in lieu of $1 million bail, the Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman said. Manuel Ramos, 37 (pictured above, center) a 10-year veteran of the Fullerton Police Department, is also charged with involuntary manslaughter in the July death of Kelly Thomas, 37. Ramos' family and friends raised the $100,000 for the bond -- which typically is 10% of the bail -- to secure his release from custody, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County sheriff. Ramos was released shortly after midnight Thursday, Amormino said. "By the time they do the paperwork and things of that nature, many times it's that late in the morning," Amormino told media sources. One other officer charged in the Thomas case is Cpl. Jay Patrick Cicinelli. He is charged with involuntary manslaughter and felony use of excessive force. He was released last week on $25,000 bail. Both officers have pleaded not guilty to the charges. The two men are among six Fullerton police officers -- all men -- who were involved in the Thomas arrest and have been placed on involuntary, paid administrative leave.

Kelly Thomas (pictured left, after beating) a 37-year-old homeless man with schizophrenia, was beaten by police during an altercation July 5 and died five days later. The case drew widespread attention to the police department of Fullerton, about 25 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. Thomas' father, Ron Thomas, 55, of Cypress, California, the father of Kelly, objected to Ramos' release and said Ramos should have been held without bail. "I don't want him released because he brutally murdered my son," said Thomas, who's a safety consultant for the construction industry. He was an Army Ranger in special ops for 10 years; a martial arts master, he now teaches hand-to-hand combat to Marines going to Iraq and Afghanistan, he said.

Kelly's father, said Thursday he wants criminal charges against each of the other four officers, not charged in the incident. "Even if he just stood there and did absolutely nothing, that's what he should be charged with. He didn't prevent my son's death," Thomas said.

The FBI is also investigating the incident for civil rights violations. The Orange County district attorney's office said this month that no charges were filed against the other four because "the evidence does not show knowing participation in an unlawful act on the part of these officers." Since then, two other allegations of brutality at the hands of city police have surfaced, both regarding unrelated arrests in 2010. District Attorney Tony Rackauckas and fellow prosecutors viewed 16 minutes of bus depot surveillance video showing what happened in the Thomas case, Rackauckas has said. Thomas suffered brain injuries, facial fractures, rib fractures, and extensive bruising and abrasions, the prosecutor's office said. The Orange County coroner listed his manner of death as a homicide and said he died after having his chest compressed, leaving him unable to breathe.


Ramos had made initial contact with Thomas -- whom he knew as a "homeless drifter" -- after police received a call about a homeless man looking in car windows and pulling on handles of parked cars, Rackauckas said. "He lifted his fists to Kelly Thomas and he said, 'You see my fist? Now they're getting to ready to Fuck you up,'" Rackauckas said, using "F" instead of the full profanity. The district attorney said Ramos' conduct was unacceptable and "not protecting and serving" the public. "Ramos had to know that he was creating a situation where Kelly Thomas feared for his life and was struggling to get away from an armed officer who was going to 'F him up,'" Rackauckas said. Cicinelli (pictured above, center) arrived at the scene later. He is accused of using excessive force when he allegedly assaulted and beat Thomas, including using the front end of his Taser to hit the victim on the head and face eight times while the man was pinned to the ground by other officers. At that point, Thomas was making no audible sounds, indicating that he was "down and seriously injured," the prosecutor's office said.

O.C. Murder Cops!

Posted: September 22, 2011

SANTA ANA, Calif. – Two police officers were charged Wednesday in the death of a mentally ill homeless man Kelly Thomas, who was beaten and on July 5. Officer Manuel “Manny” Ramos and Corporal Jay Cicinelli have been charged with second degree murder and excessive force respective. Cicinelli lost one of his eyes while he was an officer with the Los Angeles police department, in 1996, when shot during an off-duty attack in South Los Angeles. Although the incident with LAPD placed him on disability, he was able to land a job with the Fullerton police. Ramos was taken into custody in leiu of $1 million bail and $25 thousand bail for Cicnelli. Ramos faces 15 years in prison and Cicinelli faces four years in prison.

FBI Investigation?

August 10, 2011
"As far as intentional killing ... I have not seen any evidence of that in this case." -- Orange County Dist. Atty. Tony Rackauckas on the beating death of Kelly Thomas by six (6)Fullerton Police Officers.

Orange County Dist. Atty. Tony Rackauckas on Monday said that he's seen no evidence so far suggesting Fullerton police officers intentionally tried to kill homeless man Kelly Thomas, but that his office is still trying to determine whether the officers used excessive force in his death. Thomas, 37, died several days after he was confronted by six Fullerton officers at the local bus depot last month. As they tried to search the schizophrenic homeless man, a violent altercation ensued that left him in a coma. Witnesses have described officers repeatedly striking him and shocking him with a stun gun.

Rackauckas (pictured left) speaking about it publicly for the first time, said the investigation is in its early stages and his office has yet to get a cause-of-death determination from the Orange County coroner's office. "As far as intentional killing ... I have not seen any evidence of that in this case," Rackauckas said. Rackauckas' comments come as Thomas' father revealed new details about his son's injuries. The D.A. said he did not want to speculate on possible criminal charges — whether they be manslaughter or excessive force — until "all the evidence is in."

video temporarily removed

The top prosecutor said he had seen a security video of the incident. Prosecutors and police have refused to make the video public, and Rackauckas said he cannot discuss its content. "It is a tragedy this happened," he said when asked to characterize the video's images. "My heart goes out to Mr. Thomas and [his] family members." He said his office is expediting the case by assigning extra investigators, but that it takes time to transcribe dozens of interviews and gather relevant documents. Rackauckas said he has made the investigation a priority for his prosecutors and investigators, and is devoting extensive resources to the case. "I am reviewing everything that is being done," he said. The incident, which prompted large protests at the bus depot in the usually conservative community, is also under investigation by the FBI. The Police Department has released few details about what happened that night, other than to say that Thomas was stopped by officers investigating a report of an attempted car burglary and became combative. Six officers have been placed on leave.

Two Fullerton council members have called for the police chief to resign, and rallies have drawn hundreds of protesters. On Monday, Fullerton's city manager proposed bringing the head of the Los Angeles County sheriff's watchdog body to examine the July 5 incident and related policies and procedures, according to sources. Michael Gennaco, head of L.A. County's Office of Independent Review, has been brought in before to examine the Orange County jails after the death of an inmate.

Ron Thomas said MRI and X-ray results from the hospital that treated his son show he had two forms of severe brain injury: one caused by a lack of oxygen and the other by blunt force trauma. Bones in his face had also been broken, said the father, who previously released a photo of Thomas' bloody, swollen, barely recognizable face.


Ron Thomas has labeled his son's death a murder and said he wants the six officers involved to go to prison.

NOW! You Said Hero!

August 3, 2011


SANTA ANA, Calif. (WCJB) - Residents in Fullerton, Calif., are outraged after a mentally-disabled homeless man (pictured above, center) died following a physical confrontation with five police officers. In surveillance video taken aboard an Orange County Transportation Authority bus, passengers say officers pounded 37-year-old Kelly Thomas' face and hogtied him as he cried out for his father. The video was made public on Tuesday. According to media affiliates, officers confronted Thomas, who suffered from schizophrenia, on July 5 while investigating reports of a man burglarizing cars near the Fullerton Transportation Center.



Police said Thomas ran away as officers tried to search his backpack. This triggered an altercation that eventually involved six officers whose names have not been released. One officer was initially placed on paid administrative leave. Police Chief Michael F. Sellers then decided to do the same for the other five officers on Tuesday, according to department spokesman Sgt. Andrew Goodrich. Thomas suffered severe head and neck injuries and was taken off life support on July 10. An autopsy conducted Tuesday night was inconclusive about his cause of death.

Video???!

August 4, 2011

Orange County prosecutors said they have reviewed a videotape that shows parts of a deadly altercation between homeless man Kelly Thomas and Fullerton police. The Orange County district attorney has more than two dozen investigators working on the case. Officials have already interviewed 80 witnesses and plan to interview more than 100 people. “You understand why the public is upset. We are doing the investigation as quickly as possible. We are waiting for the toxicology and the cause of death,” said Susan Kang Schroeder, the district attorney’s chief of staff. “The D.A. has made it very clear. This is a priority. We have two dozen investigators involved in the investigations.... It is such an important case. The public wants the answers as soon as possible but the public does not want a rush to judgment." Kang Schroeder said the facts will either come out at trial or in a detailed report issued by the district attorney’s office. Kang Schroeder said investigators possess a video of much of the incident.

“The camera at the bus depot was controlled by Fullerton police. It shows certain things but [does] not completely show everything" that happened. But she said they won’t make it public. “The reason why we are not releasing the video is we want to make sure that any witnesses who come forward testify to what [they] saw in person, not what they saw in the media.” Kang Schroeder added: “Your heart goes out to family. You hear the crying, Dad, Dad ... but our office has a very important job to do and we will apply the applicable laws objectively.” At Tuesday night’s City Council meeting, hundreds of angry citizens jammed into the overflowing council chambers, criticizing police for the death of Thomas, 37, and demanding that the city explain what happened. In response to the increasing chorus of public criticism, the Police Department issued a statement Wednesday saying only: "This was tragic for our community. We are in the midst of an investigation." Although the Police Department remained largely silent, the attorney for the six officers spoke out in their defense. Michael D. Schwartz said Thomas was combative with officers. He said that contrary to the statements of at least one witness, the officers did not use a flashlight as a weapon. Schwartz also said there was "no excessive use" of a Taser by the officer on Thomas -- rebuffing claims made by several witnesses.
“Unfortunately, public perception of officer's trying to control a combative, resistive suspect rarely conforms to those officers' training, experience, [and] what those officers were experiencing at the time or reality,” he said. “This seems to be a case in point.”

One Fullerton City Council member called for the police chief's resignation Wednesday, criticizing the Police Department for refusing to answer questions in the case.

Spokane Police!

Posted: 11/15/12 09:14 PM ET EST - Updated: 11/19/12 11:14 PM PST


SPOKANE, Wash. -- Officer Karl F. Thompson Jr., 65 (pictured above, right) a former Spokane, Washington police officer was sentenced Thursday to more than four years in prison for his role in the 2006 death of Otto Zehm (pictured above, left) a mentally disabled janitor who died after being erroneously suspected of stealing money from an ATM. Thompson is a Vietnam veteran and a decorated 40-year veteran of law enforcement in Los Angeles, northern Idaho and Spokane, his attorney said. "This man before you is not a villain," his attorney told the judge. Thompson addressed the court, apologizing to Zehm's mother. "I did not intend to harm Mr. Zehm that night, and did not act in malice," he said. "I have dedicated my life to protection of the public." His Defense attorney argued for a sentence of zero to 16 months, saying there was no evidence presented that the actions of Thompson led directly to Zehm's death.

Federal prosecutors noted that Thompson attacked Zehm without warning, and struck him repeatedly with a 30-inch baton and also stunned him. "There were seven baton strikes in less than eight seconds," said Tim Durkin, an assistant U.S. attorney. "There is compelling medical evidence in this case that Mr. Zehm sustained serious bodily injury." Zehm had committed no crime. Prosecutors sought a sentence of nine to 11 years because of the seriousness of the attack on Zehm, and its impact on the community.

Thompson Jr., was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Fred Van Sickle to four years and three months. Van Sickle also ordered that Thompson be taken into custody immediately, over the objections of defense lawyers, who wanted him to remain free while the verdict is appealed. Van Sickle said he hoped the sentence would begin to bring closure to Zehm's family and to the Spokane community, which has been at odds with the police department as a result of this case and others. "This had a significant impact on the community and how it viewed its police department," Van Sickle said.

Six years ago, Zehm was beaten and stunned by Thompson in a convenience store. He was hog-tied and sat on by other officers until he passed out. The 36-year-old died two days later without regaining consciousness. Thompson was convicted last year by a federal jury of violating Zehm's civil rights by using excessive force and then lying to investigators in the case.

Victor Boutros, a Justice Department attorney who helped prosecute the case, said it was important to remember that Zehm, a mentally ill janitor, had committed no crime. "He was just going in as he always did to buy his soda and his candy," Boutros said. Thompson's actions warranted prison time, he said. His last words were: "All I wanted was a Snickers bar," according to trial testimony. Prosecutors also alleged the case involved an extensive cover-up by police. That investigation is ongoing.

"A badge cannot equate to a free pass," Boutros said. "When officers abuse their power and lie to cover it up, it fundamentally undermines" their position of trust in the community, said Boutros.

On March 18, 2006, police received a report that a man matching Zehm's description might have stolen money from people at an ATM. Surveillance video showed that Thompson found Zehm inside a convenience store and immediately struck him repeatedly with a baton and shocked him with a stun gun. Other officers arrived and hogtied Zehm, put a rubber mask over his mouth, and sat on him. It was later determined that he had not committed any crime.


Anger boiled in the community over the death, but the Spokane County prosecutor's office declined to bring charges against any officers. Amid demands for justice, federal prosecutors eventually charged Thompson with violating Zehm's civil rights through use of excessive force and then lying to investigators.

Impersonated Assaults!

Posted: 10/19/2012 02:46:36 PM PDT - Updated: 10/21/2012 05:38:28 AM PDT

San Bernardino County, CA -- Two San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies charged with misdemeanors after one allegedly assaulted a man and the other falsely impersonated another deputy have denied their involvement in the crimes. Deputy Michael Parham, 40, of Rancho Cucamonga, pleaded not guilty Monday to one count of assault by public officer for the May 20 beating of Mario Madrigal, according to court records. He is scheduled to be back in court on Oct. 29.

Parham was one of four deputies who responded to a report of vandalism at a home in the 4000 block of North F Street in an unincorporated area of San Bernardino shortly after 1a.m. During the call, he allegedly kicked the handcuffed man in the chest and groin, stepped on his head and laughed and joked about it while doing so, according to sheriff's reports. Deputy Shadia Adham, 33, of Yucaipa, was also arraigned Monday inside the San Bernardino Superior Courthouse. She pleaded not guilty to one count of false impersonation on Monday and is expected back on Nov. 15, according to court records. She is accused of falsely identifying herself and another deputy who responded to the call as other deputies who worked out of the sheriff's central station in San Bernardino, namely Lauren Mitchell and Galen Spears, respectively, according to the investigative reports.

The events that played out during that call resulted in an extensive internal affairs investigation by the Sheriff's Department, detailed in 315 pages of reports submitted to county prosecutors by a team of five investigators.

Parham and Adham work out of the sheriff's central station in San Bernardino. Parham made news in 2003 when he was critically wounded after being shot while on duty, and the man suspected of shooting him, Ricardo Alfonso Cerna, committed suicide by shooting himself in the head while sitting in an interview room at the Sheriff's Department.

Cerna's suicide, caught on video by a sheriff's security camera, was burned onto a DVD and circulated at a training seminar, which touched on the detaining of criminal suspects. The video wound up going viral on the Internet, resulting in disciplinary action being taken against multiple sworn personnel at the department. Parham spent a week at Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he recovered from his wounds.

Officer Beatdown!

Posted: Jan 20, 2012 - Updated: 3:27 PM PST, Thu May 24, 2012
"The only good nigger is a dead nigger and they should hang you in the town square to prevent any other nigger from coming in the area."

-- July 2011 Statement by Oakland, CA Public Schools Police Chief Pete Sarna, referring to an African-American police officer.


Melbourne, Florida -- Technicians in Florida have recovered dashcam video of a Melbourne police officer beating a 66-year-old man who suffers from dementia even though the officer deliberately tried to disable the recording. The video clearly shows Albert Flowers calmly walking towards the police cruiser before Middendorf suddenly delivers a kick to his midsection. Before Flowers is able to get up, the white cop drops to his knees and pounds his fists into the African-American man’s face. Flowers spent a month in the hospital after the encounter. An attorney for beating victim Flowers told media sources that his client was prepared to sue the city of Melbourne.

“He should be fired,” an attorney said of Officer Derek Middendorf. “Anyone who’s being pulled over by this officer should be terrified.”

“It’s clear (Officer Middendorf) tried to destroy all the video in this case. He thought he had turned off the camera, and that’s why he acted the way he did,” according to the same attorney.
“Information regarding the arrest of Albert Flowers was sufficient to indicate that an internal investigation was not warranted. Officer Derek Middendorf is a valued officer whose record since joining the department in 2005 reflects the fact that he has done a very good job for the city.”

-- Statement by Melbourne Police Chief Steve Mimbs in a press advisory before the video was released publicly.
video temporarily removed

Confrontation starts at 19:28. Officer Derek Middendorf of the Melbourne, Florida Police Department attempted to disable his police cruiser camera before beating Albert Flowers, a 66 year old man who suffers from dementia. Officer Derek Middendorf was only able to disable the audio recording on the camera. The command of the Melbourne Police force found that the use and level of force was justified. This is the entire unedited video. The beating and arrest occurred on Oct 7 2011.

Middendorf was initially reprimanded for tampering with the recording device, but the city chose not pursue an administrative review at the time. Middendorf indicated in his report that he used force against Flowers (pictured left) after the man did not obey orders to stop moving toward him. The officer had suspected Flowers may have had a knife. “I had to react and protect myself in fear he was going to attack me,” the report said. “Not knowing if he was still armed or not … I struck the defendant in the face to distract him.” Flowers was arrested and charged with felony battery, investigators said. After viewing the video, prosecutors said they changed the charges against Albert Flowers, who was beaten by Officer Derek Middendorf. Prosecutors said they reduced his charges to a misdemeanor of resisting an officer without violence.

Regents Homicide!

Posted: November 17, 2011 | 6:34 am PST - Updated: 11/18/2011 03:28 PM PST Berkeley, CA -- The UC Berkeley student shot and killed by UC campus police on November 15, was a motivational speaker who told audiences the story of how he turned his life around. Christopher Travis, 34, (pictured left) an undergraduate who had transferred to UC Berkeley's business school earlier this fall, died of his wounds at a hospital, officials said. He was shot Tuesday afternoon by a campus police officer in the school's computer lab after Travis allegedly pointed a loaded handgun at officers and refused orders to drop the weapon, authorities said.

Travis sustained multiple gunshot wounds during the incident with campus police officers. UCPD Capt. Margo Bennett who spoke to the media Wednesday afternoon, said when police entered the Haas computer lab, Travis looked up, saw police officers and pointed his gun at them. Campus officials announced that Travis, who was conscious after being shot, had died at Highland Hospital, where he had undergone surgery. The shooting occurred about 2:25 p.m. Tuesday, according to police. University police were responding to a 911 call from a staff member who had noticed the suspect with a gun in his backpack. In April, Travis formed a company in which he worked as a certified life coach and speaker, people who knew him told media sources. "That is very sad. It's hard to believe," Newark Planning Commissioner William Fitts, who had met Travis at the Toastmaster speaking group, told the paper. "He was very engaging. He was a stand-up guy. He seemed pretty normal to me. There was nothing I knew about him that indicated something like this was possible."

Police are reviewing websites on which a man matching Travis' name and description says he was employed as a security guard who worked on "police emergency response," and discusses two suicide attempts, officials said. Police also are in touch with Travis' relatives in Lodi, Calif., and are interviewing nine students who were in the lab at the time. A video camera captured at least part of the incident. "We are looking into everything," including those websites, said UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof. Police said Travis had a permit for his weapon, a semiautomatic Ruger, that was issued in San Jose. They have not determined a motive in the incident. Attempts to reach Travis' family for comment Wednesday were unsuccessful.

"When Should You Shoot a Cop?"

Posted: October 31, 2011 - Updated: Tuesday, November 8, 2011 12:34 PM PDT

PHOENIX, Ariz. — A flyer surfaced at 'Occupy Phoenix' that encourages the shooting of police officers, asking "When should you shoot a cop?" Although officials say no credible threats against law enforcement have been uncovered, the flyer chillingly advocates for cop killers and elevates them to almost hero status, media sources reported. "The next time you hear of a police officer being killed "’in the line of duty,’ take a moment to consider the very real possibility that maybe in that case, the ‘law enforcer’ was the bad guy and the ‘cop killer’ was the good guy," the flyer reportedly read.

San Antonio School District PD!

August 8, 2011

"Let's not do any big search over there," the supervisor said. "Let's stay with the victim and see if we can identify (the suspect) that way. We can put one in the area, but let's concentrate on getting the info from the victim." Shortly after a supervisor told Daniel Alvarado to stay with the victim of a minor assault and not search for the suspect, the school district officer ran into the backyard of a Northwest Side home with his gun drawn. Moments later, Alvarado fired his weapon, killing an unarmed 14-year-old boy, Derek Lopez (pictured below, left).

Someone had jumped over her fence in the 200 block of Roswell Canyon and entered her small shed, where her husband stored Christmas decorations, paint cans and a sledgehammer. The retired nurse was inside with her two daughters and 3-year-old granddaughter. "He went into the shed and I feared that he was going to get something and come after us," she recalled in a deposition. The person in the shed was Lopez. Despite his supervisor's directive, Alvarado was speeding down the suburban street in pursuit. No one saw the shooting. But inside the house, the homeowner and her daughters heard a gunshot about 45 seconds after Alvarado entered the backyard. The homeowner saw the officer carrying the boy out of the shed and putting him "on the grass, on the ground," she said. She grabbed a bath towel and ran outside. Applying pressure to the wound with the officer, she asked, "Why did you shoot him?" "He came at me," he told her.

The November incident was not the first time the officer had ignored an order, according to records recently obtained by local San Antonio media sources. Since 2006, Alvarado's supervisors at the Northside Independent School District Police Department had reprimanded or counseled him on at least 12 occasions — six for not following orders. In other cases, Alvarado failed to show up for assignments, and his bosses appeared to suspect him of lying. Alvarado was suspended at least four times, and his supervisors warned of impending termination four times — once even recommending it. In two separate cases, Alvarado was suspended for collecting evidence that disappeared, including an MP3 player and fingerprint cards.


But Alvarado, 46, never was fired. Reached by phone, Alvarado declined to discuss the shooting. NISD spokesman Pascual Gonzalez said the officer has been placed on administrative duty since the incident. Six months after the death of student Derek Lopez, as an investigation into the shooting continues, the 17-year veteran of the Police Department remains with the school district. The San Antonio Police Department has ruled the case a justified shooting. The Bexar County district attorney's office still is investigating. The question of whether the shooting was justified is unrelated to the officer's history of disobeying orders, Assistant District Attorney Cliff Herberg said. The former is a legal matter; the latter, administrative. Gonzalez echoed the distinction in a prepared statement. "We are aware of Officer Alvarado's work history," he said. "While there are some documented incidents, it's important to note that they were administrative in nature, and had nothing to do with student safety."

Derek's mother hired an attorney in December to investigate the shooting. The attorney filed actions in court to force the school district to release records, including Alvarado's disciplinary history and a dispatch recording. He also subpoenaed witnesses for depositions, some of which contradict Alvarado's version of events. Recorded in depositions, witnesses' recollections offer a closer look at the Nov. 12 incident. About 4:30 p.m., at Vista West Drive and Hunt Lane, a 13-year-old student from the Bexar County Juvenile Justice Academy was talking on a cell phone at a bus stop when Lopez, one of his classmates, punched him in the face. "He just hit me once," the boy said in his deposition. "It wasn't a fight. It was nothing." In a report, Alvarado wrote that he was approaching the shed with his gun drawn when the door flew open, hitting him in the face. No witness recalled seeing any injuries to the officer's face after the shooting. "The suspect bull rushed his way out of the shed and lunged right at me," Alvarado wrote. "The suspect was literally inches away from me, and I feared for my safety." Tracing the bullet's path into the boy's chest as it ricocheted off the pancreas, colon, right liver and left kidney and exited the stomach, an autopsy report notes a lack of gunpowder on Lopez's bloodstained T-shirt. "There is no evidence of close range firing of the wound," the report concludes.

Chicago PD: 8 Shots!

August 6, 2011


Media sources reports that 13-year-old Jimmell Cannon was in serious to critical condition late Monday after being shot eight times by Chicago police officers, who say he was holding a BB gun. His family tells a different story: The 13-year-old boy (pictured above, center - hospitalized and handcuffed) whose parents describe him as a fun-loving, "straight A-B student," wasn't the victim of gang violence or a crazed attacker. Instead, the gunmen were Chicago police officers.

According to media sources in Chicago, police arrived at a park near the Piccolo Specialty School where Jimmell attends to respond to a call of shots fired. They claim Jimmell matched the description of the shooter, so they came after him. He appeared to be holding a weapon in his hand, police say, and when they asked him to lower it, he refused. When he pointed the weapon in the officers' direction, they opened fire. Apparently, eight rounds were required to subdue the 13-year-old. The weapon they allege he was holding was a BB gun, but the Fraternal Order of Police says that officers handled the situation correctly because toy guns and real ones can be indistinguishable even to trained police officers. Meanwhile, Jimmell's family says his hands were in the air when he was shot, and he wasn't holding a gun of any kind. Will a weapon be recovered? If there was a BB gun, should police have known it wasn't a real one? How many shots does it actually take to subdue a 13-year-old kid? This story raises endless questions. But regardless of the answers, here's the real tragedy: Against the backdrop of seemingly endless stories about the police beating or shooting unarmed people, claiming their victims have weapons that are never discovered, and attempting to destroy evidence of their conduct, whether "officers handled the situation correctly" -- particularly when the victim is black -- is always an open question. And that's a shame.

Houston Police Off-Duty Shoot!

July 11, 2011

HOUSTON, TX (WCJB) -- Two people are dead following a fight in northwest Houston. One of those deaths came at the hands of an off-duty police officer. It happened near the El Chaparral Club, which is located in the parking lot of the Northwest Mall near West 18th Street. Around 2:15am, when the club was letting out, two officers who were directing traffic noticed a fight at the gas station next to the club. They believe the men who were fighting came from the club. The officers went over to try to break up the fight. At some point during the scuffle, police say one man got a knife from his car and stabbed another man. According to investigators, Officer Charles E. Hightower, then yelled for the man to drop the knife. Police say he ignored the officer and that's when Hightower fired his weapon several times, striking the knife-wielding man.

"After the suspect was shot, he then gets up, runs to his vehicle and tries to flee, drives off and goes through some bushes and hits a couple of parked cars into the parking lot," said HPD spokesman Victor Senties. "He dies here at the scene." The stabbing victim was taken to Memorial Northwest Hospital, where he later died. Both deceased men have not have not been identified. There are about a dozen witnesses being held for questioning by police. Officer Hightower is with the Northeast Patrol Division. He has served with HPD for four years. He was an off-duty officer, but was working an approved extra job. Hightower will be on desk duty for the next several days, which is standard protocol for HPD.

Black Life Versus White Life!

Posted: 07/22/2011 04:19:52 PM PDT Updated: 07/23/2011 07:48:26 AM PDT

MARTINEZ, CA -- More than six years has passed since Pittsburg police officer Larry Lasater was killed chasing a pair of grocery store robbers, but the pain remains fresh to the dozens who filled a Contra Costa courtroom Friday to watch one of the convicted killers get resentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. "I thought I would never have to see Andrew Moffett ever again, but here we are," said Lasater's widow Jo Ann, who was pregnant with the couple's only child when her 35-year-old husband was fatally shot April 23, 2005. "The decisions he made that day destroyed my family." Because Moffett was not present when his co-defendant Alexander Hamilton fired the fatal shot, the First District Court of Appeal in November struck down a special circumstance attached to his first-degree murder conviction and called for his re-sentencing. Because Moffett was a few months shy of his 18th birthday when the officer was killed, trial Judge Laurel Brady had the option of re-sentencing him to 25 years to life. Moffett was "very actively involved in the series of events" and had a violent history before the killing, Brady stated as her reasons to reinstate the original sentence.

Lasater's family gave impassioned pleas before the sentence was delivered, expressing anger for Moffett's continued lack of remorse and their daily suffering from losing the Marine Corps veteran who had dreamed of becoming a police officer since grammar school. Numerous officers in the audience shed tears as Jo Ann described how her 6-year-old son Cody leaves handwritten notes to his father on grave stones and memorials. "At least I have memories of our time together," Jo Ann said. "Cody doesn't have that." Many said they believed Moffett would not hesitate to return to a life of crime if he were paroled. "It's just not true. They just don't know me," Moffett said in response to those comments. Regarding his apparent lack of remorse, he said, "I'm innocent and I have a right to plead my innocence." Moffett's attorney said Moffett is an angry young man now, but he believes he will be changed for the better in 30 years. "If Andrew really is the prince of darkness, evil incarnate, he will never be up for parole," his attorney said. "Just because he is eligible for parole doesn't mean he'll ever get it." Prosecutor Harold Jewett said it would be unjust for the Lasater family to have to worry about that possibility. The judge pointed out that if a bill proposed by Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, changes state law so that juveniles charged as adults could not receive life without parole, that would happen anyway.

Two Years & No Charges!

Mehserle & Pirone!

(Pictured left to right Trial Judge Robert Perry, Johannes Mehserle, Oscar Grant and ex-Officer Tony Pirone)

Video shows that before Oscar Grant was killed, officer Tony Pirone punched him in the face without cause. Experts have called Pirone's conduct criminal. So why has the District Attorney said he's not pursuing charges? Tony Pirone then put his knee into Oscar Grant's neck, pressing him face down into the BART platform. Tony Pirone repeated the words "bitch ass nigger" at least twice just before fellow BART cop Johannes Mehserle shot Oscar Grant in the back. These facts were caught on videotape and have been known to BART and the Alameda County District Attorney's office ever since, yet Tony Pirone has not been charged, or even disciplined for his role in the murder of Oscar Grant. Instead, he was placed on full paid leave for over a year before he was fired.

Black Goose!

Posted: 09/17/2011 03:33:23 PM PDT Updated: 09/19/2011 09:15:20 AM PDT

Oakland, CA -- An African-American, 14-year-old boy has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter and a woman is mourning the loss of her husband. All over two bottles of Grey Goose vodka. This tragic story begins with a 14-year-old boy (he is not being named because he is a juvenile) and two teen girls who should have been in school. But like thousands of Oakland high school students on any given day, they decided to cut class. For kicks, they went down to Oak Knoll Market on Mountain Boulevard at the base of the Oakland hills. Dong Suk Kang, the owner, had warned the boy to stay out of his store. The teen was a bad actor who in the past had knocked over display cases, harassed store employees and refused to pay for items that he claimed cost too much. He came back anyway. On the morning of May 31, he tried to steal two bottles of vodka. Kang, 57, confronted him. The teen slammed Kang against a counter and punched him in the face while his wife looked on helpless. Eventually, the boy fled. (It's unclear what the girls were doing all this time, but they were not charged with a crime.) Kang told his wife to call the police. Then, he jumped in his Toyota in pursuit of the boy. What would possess him to chase down a clearly violent teen who could very well have had a gun -- over two bottles Grey Goose? A few blocks from the store, Kang had a heart attack and crashed into the curb. He died at Highland Hospital.

The Alameda County District Attorney charged the teen with robbery and murder. Murder because, prosecutors say, the store owner died from a heart attack triggered by the exertion and anxiety that he suffered during the attack. The state penal code states that if someone is killed during the commission of certain types of felonies, the perpetrator may be charged with murder. Even if he didn't intend to kill anyone. Robbery is one of the criminal offenses that can trigger the so-called felony murder rule. It can also apply after the commission of the felony. For example, if a person is attempting to escape from the scene of his crime and accidentally causes someone's death, he can be charged with murder.

In January, an appellate court upheld a felony murder conviction of a Long Beach man stemming from a freak accident. Cole Wilkins was fleeing from the burglary of an appliance store. A stove that he had stolen fell off the back of his pickup truck onto the highway. A big rig swerved to avoid it and crashed into a sheriff's deputy's Crown Victoria. The deputy was killed. There is no question that there was a direct correlation between the earlier burglary and the stove falling on the highway -- which led to the fatal collision. Yet it's not as cut and dried to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the teen caused Kang to have a heart attack. There's no question that the boy's behavior subjected Kang to undue stress. But should the teen be legally held responsible for murder? I don't believe so. This was a serious crime. The teen robbed and assaulted a man in his place of business. But murder after the store owner left the premises in pursuit of the youth -- then had a heart attack? Could the youth have reasonably concluded that his actions would cause Kang's death in this instance? Would medical testimony have conclusively supported a murder charge? The point is moot now since the teen has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge -- involuntary manslaughter. Under a plea bargain, he agreed to admit that his conduct played a role in Kang's death -- but the death is legally considered unintentional. Why prosecutors chose to charge this case as a murder given the circumstances remains up for debate. It might fall within the letter of the law, but murder by heart attack is a stretch.

“Another Nigger fried. No big deal.”

75 Years!

First Posted: 05/07/12 14:28 PDT - Updated: 05/07/12 15:44 PDT

New York (WCJB) -- A former police officer who grabbed a schoolteacher off the street and sexually attacked her was sentenced Monday to 75 years in prison after being convicted of high-level sex charges, though a jury couldn't decide whether he was guilty of rape. A three-year officer who was engaged to be married, Michael Pena was wrapping up an alcohol-soaked night of trying to pick up women when he accosted the teacher on an Upper Manhattan street early one morning last August, according to trial evidence.



Capping a trial that portrayed a hideous, sudden assault by an off-duty officer, the judge excoriated Pena as an embarrassment to police, while the woman said the attack — on her way to her first day of work at a new job — had destroyed her life. "My life has been shattered — my sense of security, my sense of safety, any and all independence," she said, with a supporter by her side, holding her arm. She wept after she finished speaking. She testified that Pena forced her into an apartment building courtyard and raped her at gunpoint, threatening to shoot her in the face with his police service weapon. A resident of the building heard the attack and called police, who learned Pena was an officer only as they arrested him. One officer said he threw Pena's badge to the ground in disgust.

"The evidence proved conclusively that Michael Pena acted purposefully and intentionally throughout this dreadful incident," Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers said. Pena "showed by his deplorable conduct that he is not one of New York's finest," Justice Carruthers said at the sentencing. "Michael Pena is, instead, a sexual predator." Pena was fired from the police force after his conviction.

Pena told authorities he was drunk and didn't remember what had happened. No tests were done, so his blood-alcohol level was never established. But the judge took aim at Pena's claim, noting that surveillance video captured Pena steadily trailing the woman, and that Pena tried to mislead witnesses and the responding officers about what was happening.

After staying silent during his trial, Pena apologized to the victim and said he deserved to be punished, though his lawyer later said Pena was shocked at getting 75 years to life, the maximum possible sentence for his conviction. "If I could go back in time, to the day of this incident, and somehow grab myself by the shoulder. ... I have no explanation for what happened that day," Pena said softly, his remarks punctuated by long silences. "I will just have that guilt for the rest of my life." Pena's lawyer said the officer attacked the woman but never had intercourse with her, a requirement for a rape conviction. The defense said the woman was so terrified that she was mistaken about the extent of what had transpired.

Jurors convicted Pena in March of some of the top charges in the case, including predatory sexual assault, an offense that involves wielding a weapon during certain sex crimes. But jurors deadlocked on rape charges.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. called Pena's 75-year-to-life term "an appropriate sentence that takes the viciousness of the defendant's crime into account." Vance's office had no immediate comment Monday on its plans regarding the remaining rape charges. Prosecutors are to say May 23 whether they plan to retry him on those charges. Meanwhile, Pena's attorney said he was exploring a potential appeal for Pena. While the attorney called Pena's sentence too severe, the local branch of the National Organization for Women hailed it as taking sexual violence seriously. About five NOW members came to court to show support for the teacher.

Blue Domestic!

First Posted: 04/15/12 14:28 PDT - Updated: 04/20/12 15:44 PDT

Queens, NY -- An off-duty NYPD recruit was arrested in his Rego Park home Saturday night after an alleged assault on his fiancé that left her bruised and with a broken nose. Police took 27-year-old Alexandru Baiasu (pictured left) into custody after they responded to a call at the Saunders Street home where the two live. The violence allegedly stretches back to at least April 5, when Baiasu’s fiancé said that he punched her in the nose, breaking it.

On Saturday, April 14, the fiancé alleges Baiasu began punching her in the face and body repeatedly while telling her he planned to plunge a knife into her chest. She told officers that Baiasu had menaced her with his baton, threatened her repeatedly and physically abused her in front of their daughter and her own child. She showed a police sergeant bruises and swelling and said this all took place in front of their three-week-old child and her 14-year-old daughter. The fight on Saturday allegedly stemmed from accusations of cheating. Baiasu told the sergeant that they got into a verbal altercation after she accused him of cheating with another recruit. Baiasu then said she was suffering post-pardum depression, he told police.

Baiasu is charged with assault, menacing, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment.

Black Listed!


First Posted: 1/18/12 01:11 PM ET - Updated: 1/26/12 12:32 PM PT



New York -- The NYCLU has filed a federal complaint accusing the NYPD of having a "secret list" barring black officers from being promoted within the department's Intelligence Division. The complaint, which specifically refers to Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence David Cohen and Assistant Chief Thomas Galati, alleges that the list has prevented black officers from receiving the salaries they deserve. Black detectives who work for the New York City Police Department's Intelligence Division say this "secret list" in the elite unit details who gets promoted. They say they are rarely, if ever, on it. The detectives call that racist. They’ve filed a complaint against the NYPD with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

An excerpt from a copy of the complaint reads:

"'...the NYPD has chosen to cloak promotions in secrecy and give the all-white high level supervisors who run the Intelligence Division unfettered discretion to handpick white detectives for promotions over more qualified African American detectives.'"

According to the complaint, of the 600 employees who work for intelligence, only 35 are African American. Out of 161 sergeants, only eight are African American, and out of 224 detectives in the unit, 21 are African American—just 6 percent. For detectives, salaries resulting in promotions see a $30,000 per year difference, plus an extra $15,000 per year in pension payments. The veteran detectives say they've taken a big financial hit from the lack of promotions.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly (pictured above, left) said he's proud of those numbers, but along with this complaint, a civil suit could be on the way. Kelly said complaints of racism in the department are unfair (NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly admitted through a top aide that he cooperated with filmmakers of "The Third Jihad"-- a radical anti-Muslim movie, which was screened for almost 1,500 officers during counter-terrorism training in 2010. Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne confirmed to The New York Times that Kelly took part in an interview with the film's director, Erik Werth, in 2007.). The commissioner wouldn't talk specifically about the EEOC complaint but said blacks are moving into higher ranks in the department. In response to the complaint, NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne denied the allegations, saying, "There's no 'secret' list. There's a formal review process that measures job performance, years in rank, etc. in which minorities department-wide have fared better than at any other time, in recognition of their meritorious performance."

The NYCLU has long been a watchdog for the NYPD, specifically in regards to racial profiling. The civil liberties group has routinely called for an end to the department's controversial stop-and-frisk practice because they believe the tactic unfairly targets innocent blacks and latinos. In December, the NYPD caused an uproar when it was revealed that several officers had created a disturbing Facebook group "No More West Indian Parade Detail" where the officers referred to paradegoers as "animals" and "savages." The NYCLU actually defended the officers though, stating their First Amendment rights "come into play not only when we like what they have to say, but also when they say obnoxious, disgusting and hateful things."

NYC: 2013!



"Lost Focus!"


New Yorkers might like Mayor Bloomberg (pictured above, center-left) as a person, but 52 percent of voters in a recent poll say the Mayor has "lost focus" during his third term in office. Wednesday's poll had some positive news for New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly (pictured above, center-right) however, who received high marks with a 66 percent job approval rating and also as a potential candidate for Mayor in 2013. Kelly led the way with 25 percent with City Council Speaker Christine Quinn following at 17 percent. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz got 14 percent.

NY Henchmen!


October 27, 2011

New York -- A Brooklyn cop running a crew of NYPD henchmen-for-hire smuggled guns through the city for a lousy $6,000, the feds said Tuesday. Officer William Masso is part of a dirty dozen accused of bringing weapons, slot machines and cigarettes across state lines to fill their pockets. Masso, 47, and his lawbreaking lawmen shattered that oath over and over, also smuggling slot machines, cigarettes and clothing, the feds charge. They held clandestine meetings in hotel rooms and parking lots, filled car trunks with cases of illegal smokes, and broke into trucks, court papers say. They did so at the behest of an FBI informant who was introduced to Masso while looking for someone to fix traffic tickets.

During a sting operation last year, he allegedly eyeballed three M-16 rifles, handguns with defaced serial numbers and a shotgun. After showing the illegal firearms to two cronies, he drove the cache from a New Jersey warehouse, across the Verrazano Bridge and on to Long Island, the feds say. For this shocking sellout of his badge, he received the not-so-princely sum of $6,000 - and his fellow cops got even less for the caper, court papers say. The FBI made the guns inoperable before the sting, but Masso and his moonlighting miscreants didn't know that, officials said.

Mayor Bloomberg said the allegations were "deplorable" but didn't diminish the work of honest cops who have fought to get guns off the street. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said he was most disturbed by the charge that Masso "actually saw what he must have certainly believed were functioning guns. It was a betrayal of the highest order of an officer's oath."



A source said Masso's name surfaced on a wiretap in the summons scandal that has rocked the Police Department. Masso (pictured above, center-left) was disciplined by the NYPD in 1998 for sending a letter to then-Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Leslie Crocker Snyder pleading for leniency in sentencing his cousin, Alphonse Malangone. A Genovese crime family soldier, Malangone faced up to 25 years and was sentenced to 15 years in prison for racketeering. In this latest mark against him, the 18-year veteran told the informant he used to sell bootleg cigarettes from an Indian reservation and agreed to help him with similar schemes, court papers say.

"Crack Head!"


Posted: Monday, October 24th 2011, 4:00 AM - Updated: Wednesday, October 26, 2011 11:35 am

"He gave me a nice piece for Christmas. It was crack and it was kickin'."

-- Trial testimony by Melanie Perez, an admitted "Crack" Cocaine user, on the Christmas gift she received from New York City Narcotics Police Detective, Officer Jason Arbeeny.


Brooklyn, NY -- NYPD narcs showered a junkie with crack and forced her to perform sex acts in return, she testified in the latest embarrassing revelation to emerge from a police corruption trial. In one incident, Melanie Perez recalled on the stand last week, a cop called her to his home, made her smoke drugs then pulled down his pants and demanded oral sex. "What was I going to do?" she testified in Brooklyn Supreme Court. "I did it." The damning account came during the bench trial of Jason Arbeeny (pictured below, left) one of eight undercover officers charged in a scandal that rocked the Brooklyn South Narcotics squad.

The trial has already yielded troubling testimony on officers "flaking" - planting drugs on innocent victims - to meet arrest quotas and get overtime pay. Perez also testified that the sexually demanding officer, whom she knew only as Frank, had later introduced her to a colleague, Sean Johnston, who also gave her narcotics on several occasions. "He gave me a nice piece for Christmas," she said. "It was crack and it was kickin'."

Johnston was convicted early this year of one corruption count and sentenced to probation. He was acquitted of 34 other charges, including those relating to accusations by Perez, also a witness in his bench trial.

The Brooklyn woman, who called her memory "fuzzy," said her testimony related to events in 2006 or 2007. She never dealt with Arbeeny, she said. Her testimony was meant to show the accused cop, charged for flaking two people in a Coney Island bust, was part of a larger conspiracy.

"Nobody saw me do anything," a bitter Arbeeny said outside the courtroom. "But my life is ruined."

Federal Fries!

“Another Nigger fried. No big deal.” -- April 16, 2011, Statement by New York City Police Officer Michael Daragjati, boasting of his false arrest of another African-American male.
A Staten Island NYPD officer accused of violating a man's civil rights by issuing a false arrest and using racial slurs is expected to plead guilty in court on January 24. Officer Michael Daragjati was arrested in October for allegedly falsely accusing a black man of resisting arrest while conducting the controversial stop-and-frisk practice. Authorities say the officer was angered when the man asked for Daragjati's badge number and then proceeded to arrest him, telling him he did not like being disrespected. Investigators then intercepted a phone call between Daragjati and a female friend, where Daragjati was recorded bragging about the arrest and that he had "fried another n***er...no big deal."
In a separate episode stemming from March, Daragjati (pictured left) is also being accused of extortion, insurance fraud, and abusing his power when he threatened a man whom Daragjati believed had stolen a plow from a side business he owned. Daragjati allegedly gathered a group of men to attack the man and threaten him with a handgun. Daragjati was secretly recorded describing the attack and saying that the victim cried like a "bitch" when trying to escape. Under Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the civil rights violation carries up to a year in prison, along with a fine of up to $100,000. However, the extortion and fraud charges could land Daragjati behind bars for up to 20 years with a fine up to $500,000.

NYPD White Lies!

Posted: October 17, 2011 - 11:45 PM EDT - Updated: October 20, 2011 - 10:00 AM PDT NEW YORK (WCJB) — A New York Police Department officer was charged Monday with falsely arresting a black man, then later allegedly using a racial slur while recounting the arrest during a phone call. A criminal complaint also accuses Michael Daragjati (pictured above, left, the target of an FBI investigation) of being involved in separate off-duty extortion and insurance fraud schemes. Read The Full Complaint (PDF) Daragjati, 32, who is white, was denied bail Monday afternoon in a Brooklyn federal courthouse. Daragjati is charged with criminal civil rights violations, including false arrest and malicious prosecution, and for doing so with racial animus. He was also charged with attempted violent extortion. Daragjati's Defense Attorney told the media he was “very disappointed” that his client was denied bail. The judge said bail was denied because of a threatening comment allegedly made by Darajati: “If something happens..these guys are dead..if I lose my job that I work hard for a living.” U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said in statement: “The power to arrest, to deprive a citizen of liberty, must be used fairly, responsibly and without bias. Motivated by base racial animus, the defendant allegedly abused this power and responsibility.” The arrest was made under the so-called “stop and frisk” strategy by the NYPD that resulted in street stops of more than 500,000 people last year. (pictured above, center, an undated NYPD "Stop & Frisk" conducted against an unidentified African-American male.) Civil rights advocates say the effort has unfairly singled out young black men and other minorities. The NYPD claims it’s essential for fighting crime in neighborhoods where men of color make up the vast majority of murder and shooting victims. According to the complaint, the 6-foot-2 Daragjati was on patrol in the Stapleton section of Staten Island with a plainclothes anti-crime unit on April 15 when he stopped the unidentified, 31-year-old black man. It says the officer grabbed the 5-6 man and frisked him, but let him go after not finding any weapons or contraband. The man objected, demanding the officer’s name and badge number and shouted insults as he walked away, authorities said. Hearing the insults, the officer and his partner chased after him and arrested him. Daragjati later lied in text messages to his sergeant and in a sworn statement by claiming the man had pushed him and fought back while he was being handcuffed, the complaint said. After two nights in custody, the man finally appeared in court, agreed to plead guilty to disorderly conduct and was released. Around the same time, authorities intercepted a phone call between Daragjati and a woman. They say he was overheard complaining about having to work overtime to process the arrest, and had “fried another Nigger.” “What?” the woman responded. “Another Nigger fried,” the officer allegedly said. “No big deal.” Authorities also charged Daragjati with beating and demanding $5,000 from a man he believed had stolen his truck. He’s also accused of trying to file a false claim with an auto insurance company.

Peppered Baloney NYPD Style!

Posted: October 19, 2011 NEW YORK -- An internal New York Police Department review has found an official violated department guidelines when he used pepper spray on Occupy Wall Street protesters last month, a person with knowledge of the investigation said Tuesday. Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna (pictured left) faces discipline of a loss of 10 vacation days after the Sept. 24 incident near Union Square, shortly after the now-global protests began in a tiny private plaza in lower Manhattan, the person said. The person had direct knowledge of the review but was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to media on condition of anonymity.

Pepper Spray!

NYPD Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna was seen using pepper spray against Occupy Wall Street protesters without provocation in a now-infamous video that has become the most noticed moment of the demonstrations, which are currently continuing into their second week. Bologna, as it turns out, has been accused of abusing protesters before. In response to last weekend's attack, the Police Department said his actions were appropriate and that the pepper spray was "used sparingly," but a new video uploaded last night shows Bologna getting trigger-happy with the spray, just moments after the first incident, simply in an effort to get some kids to scram.

Pepper Spray - Slo-Motion!


The demonstrators had meandered from their base in Zuccotti Park and spilled over into the streets, blocking traffic. Video from the protests shows a small group of mostly women corralled by orange netting used by officers to control crowds. Bologna approaches and, seemingly without warning, blasts the cluster with pepper spray. Two of the women crumple on the sidewalk in pain. One screams. The incident helped propel the movement into the national spotlight. It sparked outrage by demonstrators and a collection of gawkers who were watching the protests online through streaming footage. Video has played an important role in the demonstration in New York, with police and protesters carrying cameras in nearly every encounter. The footage can go both ways, showing possible missteps by protesters and possible misconduct by police, and it can be heavily edited. Generally, the demonstrations have been peaceful. Bologna, who works in Manhattan South, has the option to appeal the decision. His union said Bologna's actions were motivated by his concern for the safety of officers under his command and the safety of the public. "Deputy Inspector Bologna is disappointed at the results of the department investigation," said Roy Richter, president of the NYPD captain's endowment association. "His actions prevented further injury and escalation of tumultuous conduct. To date, this conduct has not been portrayed in its true context." A lawyer for one of the women, 24-year-old Kaylee Dedrick, said Bologna had assaulted her and he should be arrested. "The crux of Deputy Inspector Bologna's offense is not that he mishandled pepper spray or shot off mist in a careless fashion; the crux of Bologna's conduct is he engaged in a deliberate assault against five innocent people," one attorney said. Shortly after the incident, the hacker group Anonymous, which is affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement, posted on its website Bologna's address, his phone number and where his children went to school, among other personal details. Police department officials said that was out of line and deplorable. Pepper spray is relatively low on the spectrum of force available to officers. The patrol guide lists several situations where an officer may use it, including for protection. The guide prohibits the use of pepper spray against subjects who don't actively resist. An attorney for a pepper spray victim met with the Manhattan district attorney's office earlier this week to ask for an investigation. Other lawyers representing the hundreds of people arrested in the monthlong protest have asked for disorderly conduct charges to be dropped. Seven hundred protesters were arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge a week after the women were pepper sprayed. Other demonstrations resulted in significantly fewer arrests. The demonstrations have sparked similar protests around the world, where demonstrators have had more significant clashes with police. In Italy, riots broke out in Rome, and on Monday, Italian police conducted raids throughout the country against suspected anarchists and their sympathizers.

Big Pimpin' NYPD Style!

Last Updated: 3:07 PM PDT, October 22, 2011 Posted: 9:00 PM EDT, October 11, 2011 A girl who says a corrupt NYPD detective put her on the street when she was a 13-year-old runaway and forced her to work as a prostitute has filed a $25 million law suit. The suit accuses Wayne Taylor, a former city narcotics detective (pictured below, right) of pimping out the Brooklyn youngster and taking money from men who wanted to have sex with her. The Brooklyn federal court lawsuit, which names the city, the NYPD and the officer, was filed by the girl, who is still a minor, and her mother. Media sources are withholding their names. The cop told the girl that she had been “sold” to him for $500, and then he forced her to dance naked at parties and service adult men in Jan. 2008, the suit says. If she failed to follow his directives, Taylor and his girlfriend threatened to either beat or arrest the girl, the suit says. The officer eventually pleaded guilty to attempted kidnaping and served 3 1/2 years before he was paroled in January.The girl’s attorney said that the NYPD had been tipped to the fact that Taylor was involved in illegal activities, but nevertheless kept him on the streets. “How do you keep this guy on the job with a shield and a gun and assigned to the narcotics bureau when he has an unresolved petition for for promoting prostitution?” the Brooklyn attorney said. A spokeswoman for New York City’s law department said officials were waiting to see the suit.

Sodom Island NYPD Style!

Posted: Tuesday, October 18th 2011 - Updated: October 19, 2011 NEW YORK (WCJB) – A Staten Island man has filed a federal lawsuit claiming seven police officers beat and sexually assaulted him during a drug bust in February. Vincent Delgrosso, 26, alleges officers from the Staten Island Gang Squad pulled him from his car, threw him to the ground, pulled down his pants and sodomized him. Delgross was arrested for possession of PCP. According to the lawsuit, the officers threatened to shoot Delgrosso if he told any medical personnel what happened. Delgrosso received medical treatment following his arrest and hospital records indicate he suffered rectal bleeding precipitated by trauma.

Another NYPD Caper!

Posted: Tuesday, October 18th 2011, 4:00 AM EDT New York -- A cop awaiting trial on charges of plotting to steal $900,000 from a drug dealer's old apartment has now been arrested and charged anew for confronting a witness. Shawn Jenkins, 43, was charged last Wednesday with tampering with a witness in the case of the would-be burglary. "I found out that you testified against me," he told the woman inside her Amsterdam Ave. building, according to court papers. "I have known your family for a long time and I can't believe you are doing this and saying I did these things." The woman, who had previously testified against Jenkins (pictured above, center) before a grand jury, called police because she was concerned for the safety of her children, who were home at the time, sources said. Jenkins was charged in May 2009 with planning to invade the Inwood apartment with a police informant to grab the cash, hidden underneath floorboards. Jenkins had allegedly planned to use a fake warrant, stun guns and handcuffs to immobilize the new tenant, who was apparently unaware the apartment had once been used as a dealer's stash house. The plot was thwarted before Jenkins could hit the apartment, according to court papers. Jenkins was initially charged by federal authorities, but the case was later referred to the Manhattan district attorney's office, which is preparing for trial. He was indicted on charges of attempted burglary and conspiracy. Jenkins, who is suspended and has eight years on the force, was being held in lieu of $2,500 bail. Posted: Wednesday, March 23rd 2011, 10:10 AM EDT A city cop was charged with with attempted burglary and conspiracy Tuesday for an alleged plot to swipe nearly $1 million from a convicted drug dealer's former apartment. Shawn Jenkins, 43, faces up to seven years in prison if convicted of conspiring to raid the Inwood pad with a police informant in May 2009. Jenkins - who was being secretly taped - plotted to invade the home with a fake warrant, Taser guns and cuffs to immobilize the current tenant, court documents show. Jenkins told the informant he had once worked as a bodyguard for deported Dominican dealer Eugenio Perez and that Perez made him a map showing $900,000 hidden under the floorboards of the apartment. When he went to carry out the burglary, the feds moved in, officials said. The case was referred to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance's office last year after it was determined no federal crime was committed.

NYPD Plea Deal!

Posted: Wednesday, October 12th 2011, 7:47 PM EDT - Updated: Tuesday, October 18th 2011, 2:21 PM PDT An accused killer accepted a plea deal Wednesday, easing prosecutors' fears that he might get off because the case involved a ticket-fixing cop, sources said. Careem Johnson, 25, was looking at life in prison for executing Jose Arvelo, 18, in a grisly September 2008 killing caught on video. Arvelo was shot in the head seven times. But Bronx prosecutors apparently reconsidered taking the case to a jury after revealing last week that Detective Jason Allison, the arresting officer, tried to void a summons for a cop's brother. While it's unclear what role the scandal played in the offer, Johnson's lawyers said the district attorney's office appeared hesitant to take the case to trial. "We don't know how much of a role it played, but this is the Bronx- anything can happen," Johnson's lawyers said. "I know that they're gun-shy. I think (ticket-fixing) played a part." Bronx Assistant District Attorney Josh Gradinger (pictured above, center) had compiled damning evidence against Johnson, including a disturbing video of the killing, cell phone records and testimony from two eyewitnesses. Instead of showing those findings to a jury, prosecutors opted to let Johnson off with a manslaughter charge and a 25-year-sentence. They also dismissed his four other open cases- two of them assaults. Johnson, a reputed Bloods gang member who carried out the killing over a petty beef, admitted in court yesterday to the execution. Still, he will likely serve no more than 18 years because of time served and good behavior. "The victory is that he's not getting life," said Johnson's second attorney. The plea bargain is among dozens of "sweetheart" deals already offered to defendants pinched by ticket-fixing cops, sources said. Sources in the DA's office insisted the deal was a good one for prosecutors and had little to do with ticket-fixing. Other sources say supervisors may have feared losing the case because of Allison's involvement. In one of the thousands of phone calls secretly recorded during the ticket-fixing probe, Allison called union official Brian McGuckin to ask for help with voiding the ticket, sources said. Allison, who had arrested the man's girlfriend for an unrelated crime, felt the summons should never have been issued, the sources said. McGuckin, the Bronx financial secretary for the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, told him to case the paperwork under his door. "Despite all that evidence against (Johnson), Allison still could have lost the case for them," said a source with knowledge of the case. "The DA played it safe."

NYPD: Dirty Dancin'!

My NYPD Cousin Admir!

Posted: OCT 8, 2011 - Updated: Wednesday, October 19th 2011, 11:21 AM PDT Brooklyn - A New York City police officer was arrested this past Wednesday morning by FBI agents on charges of civil rights violations after he allegedly pepper-sprayed two patrons without cause at a bar in Brooklyn. New York City Police Department officer Admir Kacamakovic was arrested this past Wednesday morning by special agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on charges of civil rights violations stemming from a 2008 incident in which the officer is alleged to have assaulted and pepper sprayed a patron during a dispute at a bar in Brooklyn. Kacamakovic has been charged with two felony counts and two misdemeanor counts involving civil rights violations and unauthorized use of a federal law enforcement database. He was arraigned this past Wednesday afternoon in Brooklyn federal court. The incident in question occurred on July 5, 2008, at a bar owned by Kacamakovic's cousin, and was triggered by a dispute over a parking space in front of the premises. Kacamakovic, who was on duty at the time and in full police uniform, assaulted the bar patron and then handcuffed him without any criminal charge. The officer also sprayed the victim and another patron with his NYPD-issued pepper-spray during the incident. The complaint against officer Kacamakovic can be read in full on the FBI's official website. According to a complaint filed by Brooklyn federal prosecutors with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Kacamakovic shouted during his rampage : "No one f***s with my cousin's bar." After the incident, the victim filed a complaint against Kacamakovic with the NYPD's Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) and then a civil suit in state court, alleging the officer used his official position to make unauthorized queries of the FBI's national computer database for the purposes of keeping tabs on him. Federal authorities also say Kacamakovic accessed the FBI's national computer database in order to furnish information to his cousin, who at the time was being investigated for narcotics trafficking and other crimes. The officer used the NYPD's computer system to access the federal database and run names through the system to verify several Virginia drivers' license that had been furnished to the officer's cousin by FBI agents working undercover. According to the federal complaint, the officer's cousin intended to sell the drivers' licenses to illegal aliens and other criminal associates. Kacamakovic, 31, has served with the NYPD for seven years and was assigned to the 62nd Police Precinct in Brooklyn. The New York Post reports that upon his arrest by FBI agents, Kacamakovic was suspended from duty by the NYPD without pay. Kacamakovic's unidentified cousin has also been arrested by the FBI and charged with narcotics trafficking and other federal offenses. In speaking on the case of officer Kacamakovic, FBI Assistant Director in Charge (New York Field Office) Janice Fedarcyk was quoted in the federal complaint as having said: "The public trusts the police not only to enforce the law, but to obey it. This is a responsibility that should be taken seriously. As alleged in the complaint, this officer repeatedly used his position to intimidate others, including beat downs and violence, as well as accessing sensitive information that could have jeopardized undercover investigations, all for personal gain. The FBI will continue to investigate those in public positions who engage in corrupt activities." While Loretta Lynch, the U.S. Attorney for New York's Eastern District, issued equally strong words herself that came across as a warning of sorts to rouge NYPD officers as much as they did a reaffirming of a commitment of duty to the people of New York: "This prosecution demonstrates that the arbitrary and unjustified use of force and the abuse of trust by police officers who are sworn to uphold the law will not be tolerated." If convicted of all counts, Kacamakovic faces a maximum sentence of 17 years’ imprisonment.

Perjury & Ticket-Fixing!

Posted: Wednesday, September 28, 2011 - Updated: October 18, 2011 - 3:39 PM PDT Defense lawyers attacked the credibility of a cop embroiled in the ticket-fixing scandal, calling him a "moron" if he didn't know fixing summonses was wrong. Officer Peter Hans (pictured below, center) who busted two men for gun possession in the Bronx, took center stage during closing arguments. "[Hans] came in here and told you he had no idea when he asked his delegates to have a ticket fixed that that was illegal," said one of the men's lawyers. "That is offensive ... it's morally wrong, ethically wrong and illegal."
Then off came the gloves. "If he didn't know that, he's a moron," the lawyer said. Hans was caught on a wiretap getting a ticket fixed - and admitted on the stand last week that his actions constituted a crime. The defense hopes Hans' role in the scandal will help get their clients off the hook. Prosecutors already said said Hans will not be charged with a crime, even though he admitted to lying under oath. A judge will issue a verdict in the gun case next week. Hans had four conversations with Patrolmen's Benevolent Association delegate Luis Rodriguez about fixing tickets, records show. Rodriguez helped fix at least one summons for Hans, but when the delegate got cold feet about voiding another one for Hans' wife's uncle, the 17-year NYPD veteran flipped out. "Okay, Luis, if that's how we are going to do this, I'm just going to start f-----g writing a ticket to everybody that hands me a PBA card and your phone is going to ring off the f-----g hook!" Hans fumed on the wiretap, records show. The foul-mouthed 40th Precinct cop was stripped of vacation days for his role in making a summons disappear, but he never faced further discipline. Bronx Assistant District Attorney Omer Wiczyk said the evidence in the case - multiple guns found in the defendants' bodega - is enough to convict them. Posted: Saturday, September 17th 2011, 4:00 AM EDT - Updated: October 18, 2011 - 2:53 PM PDT A cop who threw cases in Traffic Court and got caught on a wiretap getting a ticket fixed admitted on the stand Friday to committing perjury. But he still won't be charged with a crime, Bronx prosecutors said. Officer Peter Hans, who copped to his role in the scandal Friday while testifying in a gun possession trial, had four conversations with Patrolmen's Benevolent Association delegate Luis Rodriguez about fixing tickets, records show. Rodriguez helped fix at least one summons for Hans, but when the delegate got cold feet about voiding another one for Hans' wife's uncle, the 17-year NYPD veteran flipped out. "OK, Luis, if that's how we are going to do this, I'm just going to start f-----g writing a ticket to everybody that hands me a PBA card and your phone is going to ring off the f-----g hook!" Hans (pictured above, center-left) fumed on the wiretap, records show. The foul-mouthed 40th Precinct cop was stripped of vacation days for his role in making a summons disappear, but never faced further discipline for purposely losing Traffic Court cases, sources said. Bronx Assistant District Attorney Omer Wiczyk said Hans would not face prosecution for his actions, even though he spoke about them in open court without being granted immunity. Defense attorneys used that to skewer both Hans and prosecutors. "All that happened to you for committing a crime was you lost some vacation pay?" asked one lawyer. "Yes," said Hans, who was visibly nervous on the stand Friday. Another defense lawyer in the gun case, got Hans to admit that "throwing" Traffic Court cases was a form of perjury. Hans also admitted to lying about a detail of the gun case in a sworn affidavit. And in a highly unusual move, Judge Michael Gross ordered all transcripts of Hans' administrative testimony and wiretapped calls be kept secret. Wiczyk had requested the information be sealed. "They're trying to limit the exposure of cops who committed crimes, which is absurd," a law enforcement source said. "How can a cop who admits to crimes, and who doesn't have immunity, still not be looking at charges?" A verdict is expected next month in the trial, in which three men face charges for possessing and trying to sell guns out of their bodega. Meanwhile, a Bronx grand jury is set to vote on possible bribery and misconduct charges against more than a dozen cops suspected of fixing traffic tickets for relatives, friends or profit. Some officers could also be charged with more serious crimes uncovered during the probe, including profiting from drug proceeds and taking kickbacks, sources said.

NYPD: Indicted!

Posted: Saturday, September 24, 2011 - Updated: October 14, 2011 4:04 PM PDT A Bronx grand jury indicted 17 cops Friday in a massive ticket-fixing scandal that stretched from precinct houses to 1 Police Plaza, sending shock waves through the NYPD. Grand jurors shook their heads and frowned in disgust as they heard the startling evidence of cops routinely quashing tickets, sources told the local media. The accused officers - including a large number of union delegates - were stunned as they absorbed the reality of their imminent arrests following a two-year probe. "We knew it was coming, but it's hard to swallow," said one cop close to several of the indicted officers. "When you take this job, you don't ever think you're gonna be on the other end of it." It was, he said, a "dark day" for the NYPD - and its most sweeping scandal since the Mollen Commission probed crooked cops who robbed drug dealers back in 1992. The indictments will remain sealed until next week, when the accused officers will be arraigned and the details will emerge, the sources said. The disgraced cops will get the chance to surrender rather than face humiliating arrests at their homes or station houses, the sources told the media. "They'll have the opportunity to turn themselves in next week," said a source close to the case. "They'll have the weekend to get everything in order." The probe focused on the city's largest police union, the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association and its delegates and trustees. More than 500 cops were linked to the scandal and it was expected dozens of officers beyond those indicted could face some sort of departmental discipline. The indicted cops face charges that include perjury, bribery, obstruction, grand larceny and official misconduct, the sources said. The media has reported the cops involved helped cover up an assault charge and a domestic assault case, with one cop even taking profits from drug proceeds. At least eight union officials were facing charges. Sgt. Raymond Brickley, one of the early targets of the probe, was caught on a wiretap talking about fixing tickets, sources said. Brickley, assigned to the 42nd Precinct, is an official with the Sergeants Benevolent Association. Edward Mullins, head of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, said word of the indictments was good news. "Now the truth is going to come out," Mullins said. "When all is said and done, Ray Brickley will be acquitted of the allegations brought against him."
