When backup arrives, the officer (whose name was not released by MPD) says he “only wanted one [car for backup].” He claims that Brown got “right up in my face.” Several officers surround Brown. One angrily tells him to get his hand out of his pocket. When Brown points out that his hands are full, the officer wrenches Brown’s hand out, and a group of officers wrestle him to the ground and tase him.

New York, NY {PUBLISHED: March 6, 2017 at 12:50 pm | UPDATED: August 24, 2017 at 01:53 am} -- The New York health department alerted doctors to the case of a newborn who fell ill after undergoing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish practice in which the circumcision wound is cleaned by the Rabbi's mouth. The baby boy was rushed to hospital when he developed herpes following the controversial ancient circumcision ritual. A rash is said to have spread across the child’s genitals, buttocks, inner thighs and ankle two weeks after the procedure. An estimated 3,000 babies are circumcised each year using the method in New York City. NYC is home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. There have been six cases of herpes among children who have had the ritual known as metzitzah b’peh performed on them since February 2015. Of the six previously undisclosed cases, two occurred last year and three in 2015. Herpes, a highly contagious viral disease which can cause blisters and ulcers. Herpes is more severe in newborn babies as their immune systems are not fully developed. Since 2000, there have been 24 cases of infant herpes linked to circumcision, leading to two deaths and two cases of brain damage.

Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap. Guap is the daughter of a Oakland police dispatcher. The police investigation will look at whether Guap was under age during some of the encounters with officers. (Click here for video)

New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)

Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired.

Gurley died more than 14 months ago, on November 20, 2014, as two cops were making a “vertical patrol,” checking the stairwells in the high-rise building. As Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney Marc Fliedner put it, opening the prosecution’s case, “Akai Gurley is dead today because he crossed paths with Peter Liang.” Liang was indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury on manslaughter and other charges last February, and both prosecution and defense agree on the immediate events that led to Gurley’s death.(Click here for video)

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

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

Resisting Arrest, or Death!

Posted: 12:29 p.m. Monday, July 28, 2014 | Updated: Saturday, 06:29 a.m. Saturday, August 2, 2014

ANTIOCH, Calif. — A police officer shot and injured a man who resisted being detained Monday morning, according to police. The shooting was reported at 8:51 a.m. at a home in the 4100 block of Folsom Drive, said Fire Marshal Robert Marshall of the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District.

Officers were dispatched to the area regarding a rifle found in the street, according to police.

Police said in a statement that an officer arriving on the scene "eventually had an encounter" with a man and attempted to detain him.

The man fled from the officer and headed into an open garage, according to police.

Police said at some point while the officer tried to detain the suspect, he opened fire, striking the man several times. The man was taken to John Muir Medical Center with gunshot wounds. Police said he was responsive at the scene but that an update on his condition was not immediately available.

The officer who shot the man is a police veteran and was uninjured, according to police.

Police said the shooting is being jointly investigated by Antioch police, the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office and the county Crime Lab, following standard protocol in an officer-involved shooting.

The 'Dirty P.I.'
Judgment Day

Posted: Tuesday, Sep 25, 2012 6:37 PM PST | Updated: Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012 3:14 PM PST

Oakland, CA -- A former Antioch police officer and private investigator (pictured above, center) was sentenced Tuesday afternoon to eight years in prison following a high-profile string of arrests that disgraced the Contra Costa County California Narcotic Enforcement Team last year. U.S. District Court Judge Saundra Armstrong in Oakland also ordered Butler to pay a $20,000 fine. Butler, dressed in a tan jail jumpsuit, choked up as his sentence was handed down.

Video: Former police commander Norman Wielsch and private investigator Christopher Butler engaged in an illegal drug deal. The video shows Wielsch and Butler selling (to government informant Carl Marino) a pound of methamphetamine stolen from a police evidence locker.

"I want to apologize to the community for the anxiety, fear and suffering I caused," Butler said. He also apologized "to the law enforcement community for the embarrassment and betrayal inflicted on it." He added a final apology: "I apologize to my family and friends who supported me through all of this."

Butler's sentence was much stiffer than what his associate received. Former San Ramon police office Louis Lombardi was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in the CNET scandal. Lombardi plead guilty to stealing $40,000 in cash and guns while serving search warrants.

The sentencing follows his guilty plea in May to six charges, including extortion, robbery and conspiring to deal drugs. His probation officer recommended more than 12 years in prison. Butler had achieved some fame by hooking a reality TV show contract and hiring "Mommy P.I.s," attractive women whose job was to lure men into cheating on their wives. And in court, he admitted to bribing a Contra Costa County sheriff's deputy, Stephen Tanabe, with cocaine and a gun to make drunk driving arrests of men he was investigating. These have since been dubbed, "dirty DUI" stings, and Butler has earned the nickname, the "Dirty P.I."

Butler testified to a lot: He admitted setting up a massage parlor, which provided sexual services.

And he testified that former squad commander Norman Wielsch (pictured below, center) gave him marijuana and steroids, which he then gave to a colleague at his private eye firm. He also said he drove Wielsch to various spots where they took 586 grams of methamphetamine from evidence lockers. One of those pounds, he said, sold for $9,800. He admitted to taking $30,000 worth of drugs. Wielsh and Tanabe have both pleaded not guilty to similar charges. The drug team, known as CNET, was disbanded last February.

Texas Christian University!

Published February 16, 2012

(17 students at Texas Christian University on Wednesday as part of a six-month drug sting)

FORT WORTH, Texas – Authorities arrested 17 students at Texas Christian University on Wednesday as part of a six-month drug sting, an especially embarrassing blow to the school because it included four members of the high-profile football team. Arrest warrants painted a startling picture of the Horned Frogs, with a handful of players who allegedly arranged marijuana sales after class or around practice and who told police that most of the team had failed a surprise drug test just two weeks ago. "There are days people want to be a head football coach, but today is not one of those days," coach Gary Patterson said in a prepared statement. "As I heard the news this morning, I was first shocked, then hurt and now I'm mad."

According to police, players sold undercover officers marijuana during the season and as recently as last week. The 17 people arrested were caught making "hand-to-hand" sales of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs to undercover officers, police said. They said the bust followed an investigation prompted by complaints from students, parents and others. The bust came just one day after a thrilling overtime victory by the men's basketball team over a ranked opponent and less than 24 hours after TCU released its football schedule for next season, its first in the Big 12 Conference. TCU has an enrollment of about 9,500 students, but the athlete arrests drew the most scrutiny.

Three prominent defensive players on the team were arrested: linebacker Tanner Brock, the leading tackler two seasons ago, defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey and cornerback Devin Johnson. The other player is offensive lineman Ty Horn. Phone messages left at the homes of Horn, Johnson and Yendrey were not immediately returned. Brock did not have a listed home number. All of the players are 21 except for Yendrey, who is 20. Brock was being held on $10,000 bond at the Mansfield city jail. Johnson and Horn were being transferred to the jail on Wednesday afternoon and Yendrey had not been arraigned.

In November, a Fort Worth police officer was informed that Horn (pictured left) was selling marijuana to "college students and football players at Texas Christian." The officer allegedly bought marijuana that day, Nov. 3, two days before a road game at Wyoming, from both Horn and Yendrey. Officers during the next several months allegedly set up drug deals with the players outside restaurants, a grocery store and other areas around campus. On Jan. 19, Brock allegedly sold an officer $200 worth of marijuana after Yendrey (pictured below, left) ran out. "After a short conversation about the marijuana, Brock and I exchanged phone numbers, telling me to come to him from now on instead of (Yendrey)," according to the affidavits.

Horn and Johnson scoffed at the Feb. 1 team drug test ordered by Patterson, police said. Brock allegedly told an undercover officer that he failed the surprise test "for sure," but that it wouldn't be a problem because there "would be about 60 people screwed." Horn had looked through the football roster and "said there were only 20 people that would pass the test on the team," Brock said, according to the warrant. And six days after the test, Johnson allegedly sold an officer $300 worth of marijuana. Asked about the test, he said: "What can they do, 82 people failed it." In response to that allegation, TCU cornerback Kolby Griffin posted a tweet on his personal account Wednesday that read, "This rumor about 82 of us failing a drug test is false completely false."

TCU released a statement late Wednesday afternoon that said the school tests its athletes for drug use "on a regular basis." "The comments about failed drug tests made by the separated players in affidavits cannot be verified simply because they were made in the context of a drug buy," the school said. Patterson declined to answer questions beyond his prepared statement.

While school Chancellor Victor Boschini said he didn't think TCU had a "football problem," the arrest affidavits raise the possibility that other players were involved. Boschini called the charges against all the students "simply unacceptable." Fraternity members were among those arrested, though Boschini said he didn't think any whole fraternity houses were at fault. "Today's events have changed the life of everybody at TCU," Boschini said. Police said they had yet to determine if other football players were involved or would be charged.

Officials said the students had been "separated from TCU" and criminally barred from campus, but it wasn't clear if the players had been kicked off the team. But their names had already been removed from the football roster posted on the school's athletic website. "I expect our student-athletes to serve as ambassadors for the university and will not tolerate behavior that reflects poorly on TCU, the athletics department, our teams or other student-athletes within the department," athletic director Chris Del Conte said. "Our student-athletes are a microcosm of society and unfortunately that means some of our players reflect a culture that glorifies drugs and drug use. That mindset is not reflected by TCU nor will it be allowed within athletics."

Brock was the leading tackler for TCU as a sophomore during the 2010 season, when the Horned Frogs went 13-0, won the Rose Bowl and finished the year ranked No. 2. Brock started the season opener at Baylor last September, but aggravated a foot injury that required season-ending surgery. Yendrey started 12 of 13 games this past season, when he had 39 tackles and three sacks. Johnson played in all 13 games, starting the last eight, and had 47 tackles with 2 1/2 sacks. Brock likely would have been a starter again in 2012. Yendrey, who also started five guys as a junior, and Johnson both were juniors last season and had another season of eligibility. Horn appeared in 10 games this past season, making one start. He played in eight games as a freshman.

"Under my watch, drugs and drug use by TCU's student-athletes will not be tolerated by me or any member of my coaching staff," Patterson said. "I believe strongly that young people's lives are more important than wins or losses. He added: "At the end of the day, though, sometimes young people make poor choices. The Horned Frogs are bigger and stronger than those involved."

Another One!

March 6, 2011

A deputy sheriff with the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office was arrested Friday on suspicion of possessing and selling controlled substances, a spokesman said. Stephen Tanabe, 47, of Alamo, was arrested at 9:30 p.m. after investigators discovered he might have been keeping and selling drugs, according to a statement from sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee. Tanabe, who had been with the sheriff’s office for four years, faces charges of conspiracy to possess and sell controlled substances, and possession and transfer of an assault rifle, according to Lee. His arrest was part of an ongoing investigation into the state Department of Justice Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team, or CNET. Authorities did not elaborate on the details of the alleged offenses, but a statement from the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Department said Tanabe's arrest was the "result of the ongoing investigation into the state Department of Justice Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET)."

Tanabe was placed on administrative leave, and he is being held at the Martinez Detention Facility with a bail of $260,000, according to the sheriff’s office. A law enforcement source close to the investigation, who asked not to be named, said agents are looking into whether Tanabe was hired by a private investigator in connection with a scheme to arrest men for drunken driving in an effort to blemish their records in hotly contested divorce cases. The source said officers in as many as four Bay Area departments are now being scrutinized for their ties to the investigator, Christopher Butler, 49, to see if they also made arrests at his orders. Two former employees of Butler, who asked not to be named because of fear of reprisals, said he was often hired by women who wanted to create a criminal record on their ex-husbands. If the man was involved in a contentious divorce and custody battle, a DUI conviction could hurt his chances for winning custody. Butler paid the officers in cash for an arrest, the ex-employees said.

Investigators are now reviewing two arrests made by Tanabe (pictured above, center) in early January, according to the law enforcement source close to the probe. In both cases, men were invited to meet at The Vine, a popular wine bar on Danville's Hartz Avenue. After drinking with a Butler-hired decoy, according to the law enforcement source and former employees of Butler's, the men drove out of the parking lot and were quickly stopped and arrested by Tanabe. Tanabe worked patrol in Danville through a contract with the city and the sheriff's office.

At Wednesday's arraignment for Wielsch and Butler, when they pleaded not guilty, Deputy District Attorney Jun Fernandez described the ruse he said was orchestrated by Butler to get the men he was investigating arrested.

Fernandez said Butler hired decoys, usually attractive women, to make passes at the men and suggest they meet for drinks at a local bar. In other cases, Butler used male decoys, including his employees, who posed as journalists or documentary filmmakers who wanted to conduct lengthy interviews with their subjects over drinks. In each case, Butler would call his officer contacts and give a description of the male target, the car he was driving and the moment he left the bar. After the man drove from the parking lot, the officer would fall in behind and arrest him.

Butler is a central figure in the CNET investigation. He was arrested Feb. 16 with his longtime friend Norman Wielsch. Both were charged with 28 felony counts connected to the theft, possession and sale of methamphetamine, marijuana, steroids and prescription pills. Authorities said Wielsch, the former commander of the Contra Costa County Narcotics Enforcement Team, stole the drugs from evidence lockers and passed them along to Butler, who found buyers through employees at his investigations firm.

Butler was released from jail Friday after making bail. Wielsch also is out on bail.

All three men - Wielsch, Butler and Tanabe - are former Antioch police officers who worked in the department in the late 1990s.

A spokesperson for the Contra Costa County district attorney's office did not return calls seeking comment after Tanabe's arrest. The arrest is the third connected to the Department of Justice's investigation into the multiagency narcotics task force known as CNET.


February 16, 2011

The commander of a Contra Costa County drug task force and the head of a high-profile, Concord-based private investigations firm were arrested Wednesday on allegations they conspired to sell drugs, authorities said. Norman Wielsch, commander of the Central Contra Costa County Narcotics Enforcement Team, and Chris Butler, who runs the P.I. firm Butler and Associates, were booked into County Jail in Martinez on Wednesday on scores of suspected offenses including possession and sale of marijuana and controlled substances, embezzlement, second-degree burglary and conspiracy.

Wielsch (pictured below, center) is being held on $660,000 bail. Butler (pictured above, center) is being held on $840,000 bail.

Both men are former veteran officers with Antioch police from the late 1990s before they entered their respective positions.

Marvetia Wins!

January 31, 2011

ANTIOCH, CA -- The city has agreed to pay a former San Francisco police inspector $750,000 to settle a federal civil rights lawsuit. Marvetia Lynn Richardson sued Antioch in U.S. District Court in July 2008, saying Antioch officers illegally broke into her house on Mokelumne Drive in June 2007, shocked her with a Taser after a dispute with a tenant she was evicting, and took her to jail on suspicion of resisting arrest.

Antioch has denied any wrongdoing, saying the police department had probable cause to enter Richardson's house and did not use excessive force in making an arrest. The lawsuit also contended that the incident was part of efforts by Antioch police to harass African-American residents and drive them out of certain neighborhoods, a charge the city also denies. Attorneys for Richardson and Antioch declined to comment on the settlement, which prohibits them from discussing the terms.

The decision to settle a case is often made by joint risk pools for public agencies rather than by the defendant itself -- particularly when significant attorneys' fees are included, City Attorney Lynn Tracy Nerland said in a written statement.

"Such settlements reflect economic realities rather than any change of position or belief on the part of the defendant," she said.

Police were called to Richardson's home after midnight on June 7, 2007, by Bridget Reed, who was renting rooms for herself and teenage daughter and was in the process of being evicted. Reed had called 911 to complain about noise; Richardson was at home entertaining two female friends and their children.

After talking to Richardson inside the house, the officers were outside when they heard screams and loud sounds indicating a struggle or fight, according to court documents. Reed and her daughter ran outside, saying that the teen daughter of one of Richardson's guests had threatened to shoot them.

Richardson says officers broke down her front door, and confronted her as she stood in her bedroom doorway. She was calmly answering officers' questions when she was suddenly shocked with a Taser, according to the lawsuit.

Charges against Richardson were dismissed in 2008 after a Contra Costa County judge ruled that police entered the house illegally, according to the lawsuit. Richardson is scheduled to be in Contra Costa Superior Court in Pittsburg at 8 a.m. Feb. 7, 2011 to petition the court to find that she was factually innocent. "She wants it erased so it's as if it never happened. She is and has been the victim," said Richardson's criminal attorney who did not represent her in the lawsuit.

A lawsuit by Richardson in San Francisco County Superior Court alleging she was wrongfully fired -- in part because of the Antioch incident -- is ongoing.

Feds Sanction Murder Again!

January 29, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Five members of the Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team have been cleared of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a 29-year-old Antioch man during a drug sting in 2008. San Francisco U.S. District Judge Susan Illston ruled Wednesday in a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by Timothy Wayne Mitchell Jr.'s family that CNET member and Pittsburg police Officer Les Galer had "an objectively reasonable fear of death" and "committed a justifiable act of homicide" when he shot Mitchell on March 11, 2008. Galer, his identical twin, Phil Galer, CNET Commander Norm Wielsch, and Officers Sean Dexter and Louis Lombardi were each defendants in the suit.

The attorney for Mitchell's parents, Timothy Sr. and Paulette, said Friday that he had not had a chance to read through the judge's decision, but he was "inclined to disagree with it." "I think there's a considerable amount of evidence in the case that shows the officers placed themselves in a difficult and dangerous situation and behaved with recklessness and foolishness," said the attorney, part of the John Burris law firm. Further, depositions given by the officers in court were "demonstrably false," and inconsistent with the physical evidence, he said, adding there were no eye witnesses to support the plaintiff's case.

A tip from a confidential informant that Mitchell had been selling marijuana out of his apartment and kept a sawed-off shotgun prompted CNET officers to get a warrant to search Mitchell's residence. The team believed that Mitchell had an extensive criminal record, though it turned out that a criminal had stolen Mitchell's identity and Mitchell himself had no record. Later, the officers found a small amount of marijuana and a handgun in Mitchell's bedroom.

The officers converged on Mitchell's apartment at 7 a.m. and knocked and called out before they forced their way in. Les Galer was first to enter and immediately came in contact with Mitchell, dressed in his underwear. Galer said Mitchell grabbed his wrist beneath the gun he was holding and, thinking he was trying to take the weapon, he fired. A jury at a coroner's inquest ruled the death accidental. The Mitchells alleged in their lawsuit that the officers' search warrant was unreasonable and created unnecessary danger to their son, and officers themselves were not properly trained or supervised. It is uncertain if an appeal to the decision will be filed, Yourke said.

The officers' attorney said the judge recognized that under federal case law, an officer may fire a weapon to protect his own life if he concludes a suspect intends to shoot them. "Each of the officers sincerely regret Mr. Mitchell's passing, but there was no question Detective Galer was acting in defense of his life when he discharged his weapon," said the attorney. "Detective Galer is an outstanding officer. People forget sometimes that police officers are members of our community who have a very difficult job and charges of this type are very difficult for them in every sense."


A True Racist Court System Exposed!

Reasonable Force: Shot in the Back!

Galer History!

April 23, 2005

[T]he retirement dinner for Sgt. Bob Canchola of the Pittsburg Police Department was interrupted by an officer-involved shooting and the aftermath of an officer being shot and killed in the line of duty. On Saturday, April 23, 2005, Officer Larry Lasater of the Pittsburg Police Department passed away after being shot by a suspect. Two suspects had robbed a Wells Fargo Bank inside of a Raley’s grocery store, then highjacked a vehicle, and as they were fleeing from the scene, they crashed the car. After crashing the stolen car, they then fled on foot. Lasater’s and Officer Florence’s units were the first to arrive on the scene, and they parked their vehicles at the entrance of an access road between Los Medanos College and a county building.

The officers moved along the northern edge (right side) of the trail with their guns drawn. Florence indicated that at one point he saw and heard Lasater move into an area that was overgrown with trees and brush with his gun pointed in a downward direction and yelled “show me your hands.” Immediately, four or five shots rang out. Although Florence was in an area where he was himself very vulnerable since he had no idea where the suspects were located, he nonetheless continued to move forward toward Lasater in an attempt to discern his location and his status. As he approached, he eventually could see that Lasater was lying on his back and had suffered a gun shot to the neck. At this time Officer Galer arrived.

Immediately after Lasater had been shot, Florence had put out over the radio that shots had been fired. When he finally observed Lasater lying on the ground, he also put out an 1199 over the radio, “officer down”. But, the other responding officers could not discern the officer’s whereabouts. Obviously, it was critical that the officers be able to describe their exact location. Galer ran to the intersection of Desrye Boulevard and Belle Drive and put the cross street out over the radio. At that moment, he observed his brother, Les Galer, traveling directly at him on Desrye Boulevard and approaching Belle Drive. After he announced his location, Phil then ran back along the trail to assist Florence. At the same time, Officer Les Galer turned off of Desrye Boulevard onto the trail and crashed through a locked gate on the trail. Eventually, he stopped within a few feet of Florence to provide him with cover. It was at that point that the officers took cover behind Les Galer’s patrol vehicle. Les Galer was armed with his AR-15.

Officers Phil Galer and Florence decided to move away from the patrol vehicles toward the location of Lasater. After traveling a distance of approximately five-to-15 feet from the vehicle, one of the suspects began firing shots from their location in the overgrown vegetation. It was at that point that Les Galer returned fire with his AR-15 and, at the same time, Phil Galer and Florence dropped to the ground and attempted to return to the vehicle for cover. Phil Galer also returned fire as he crawled back to the patrol car.

Eventually, a suspect came out from the brush area. A verbal exchange occurred and the suspect indicated that he did not shoot the officer, but that the other suspect had done so. He pointed back in the bushes and said something to the effect that “he had done it.” The suspect was placed into handcuffs and taken to a patrol vehicle. Shortly after Lasater was taken from the scene, the officers at the scene learned that the Antioch Police Department had taken the second suspect into custody several blocks away from where the shooting occurred.

Officer Les Galer was in Lasater's police academy class and was back on the trail with his former classmate when Lasater was shot to death, allegedly by one of the robbery suspects. On Monday, Galer remembered his friend and fellow officer at a funeral at the Chronicle Pavilion in Concord that was attended by 4,000 people, including 2,500 law enforcement officers from around the state and scores of Marines saying goodbye to one of their own. When his police SWAT team recently checked into a hotel during an assignment, Lasater didn't go out socializing with colleagues. He went shopping for Cody at a nearby Babies R Us, Galer recalled.

'Routine Traffic Stop'

News Update!

September 15, 2009

C.A.T. Claws!

Low-income African American renters suing the city of Antioch for allegedly trying to drive them out of federally subsidized housing say a new study backs up their charge that police targeted them for special patrols and pressured landlords to evict them. The federal court suit was filed in July 2008 as a proposed class action on behalf of about 800 African Americans living in Section 8 housing in Antioch, where blacks make up about 15 percent of the city's 100,000 residents. City officials reacted to a near-doubling of the black population in five years by forming a squad of police that searched their homes illegally and warned landlords they could be held responsible for tenants' misconduct. The report by criminologist Barry Krisberg said Antioch's police Community Action Team, established in July 2006 to patrol high-crime neighborhoods, has disproportionately concentrated on subsidized Section 8 housing for the poor, and even more so on black tenants. The police squad "claims to focus on quality-of-life issues regardless of housing status or race, but it actually focuses on Section 8 households and their African American residents," said Krisberg, president of the National Council on Crime and Delinquency, a private research organization. Krisberg's study covered mid-2006 to the start of 2009, during which Section 8 households amounted to about 6 percent of Antioch households and 24 percent of renters. During that time, the study said, 48 percent of the households designated by the police Community Action Team for enforcement activity were occupied by Section 8 tenants. African Americans made up 56 percent of the Section 8 households and 68 percent of those designated by police for contact, the report said. The study also found that police were more likely to send letters to landlords, warning of liability for tenant misconduct, in Section 8 households than in others, and much more likely to refer black households to the county Housing Authority for alleged crimes than non-black households. However, the Housing Authority was much less likely to find grounds to remove African Americans from Section 8 housing than tenants of other racial backgrounds, Krisberg said. C.J. Note: Illegal and highly toxic meth labs are showing up in suburban California neighborhoods. Crystallized methamphetamine hydrochloride is an extremely dangerous type of amphetamine. Similar to the effects of cocaine, methamphetamines are powerfully addictive stimulants that speed up heartbeat, breathing and brain activity. Chronic use can result in a psychosis that resembles schizophrenia. Characterized by paranoia, the user often picks at his own skin and experiences other erratic and/or violent behavior and hallucinations. California accounts for 85-percent of total U.S. methamphetamine production. Once relegated to rural areas, meth labs are now showing up in more and more suburban areas, crossing economic and social boundaries. According to the Department of Toxic Substances Control, Contra Costa County has become a hotbed of meth production in Northern California, with more than one hundred labs seized each year since 1998. That adds up to a major environmental and health hazard. Officials in Contra Costa County have even recounted tales of chemicals being poured over a fence into a children's play area. All of this illicit toxic waste eventually winds up in waterways via rainwater run-off. The following chart was last modified January 21, 2009. Past year methamphetamine use among whites (0.7 percent) and Hispanics (0.5 percent) was higher than among blacks (0.1 percent) or Asians (0.2 percent). Can someone please explain why the C.A.T. focus is on African-Americans in Antioch? There is not a crack epidemic in Antioch, there is a Methamphetamine epidemic in Antioch (Contra Costa County). Meth is 100 times worse than "Crack."

Garrido - 18

August 29, 2009 Antioch, CA -- Sex offender, Phillip Garrido and his wife, Nancy kidnapped Jaycee Lee Dugard, age 11, in 1991. Evidence indicates that for the duration of the last 18 years Jaycee Lee was held captive in Antioch, California. In a non-descript home in Antioch Garrido held Jaycee Lee captive, fathering two children by her with what appears to be active complicity from his wife. At the time of the abduction, Garrido was on parole for a crime he committed just 15 years prior. On Nov. 23, 1976, Garrido, 25 and living in Reno, Nevada was arrested for kidnapping, rape and sexual assault of a twenty-five year old woman from South Lake Tahoe. Law enforcement found him with the woman in a small warehouse. The warehouse was furnished with rugs on the floors and walls, adult magazines, sex toys, wine, hot water, and a spotlight. Garrido was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for kidnapping and transporting his victim over state lines, and from five to life on a state charge of sexual assault. On parole for a violent sex offense, California Parole officials failed to adequately supervise Garrido. It is obvious no parole searches of his home were ever conducted. Garrido was able to hold captive, an 11-year old girl, for a period of 18 years, without question or challenge by Antioch Police Department, Contra Costa Sheriff's Department, or the State of California. In fact, in 2006, upon being summoned by a concerned neighbor, the Contra Costa Sheriff's department dispatched a deputy to Garrido's home where Jaycee Lee was being held captive.
The Antioch Police Department and the Contra Costa Sheriff's Department finds themselves involved in federal civil litigation for the harassment of African-American homeowners and renters in the City of Antioch. Did the fact that Mr. Garrido is Caucasian have anything to do with his ability to escape detection for 18 years?. After all, Mr. Garrido was a parolee subject to 24 hour search clauses by law enforcement, or state parole officials.

A.P.D. 2008-2009

There are accusations of racism and police misconduct in Antioch, [California] where the city's been slapped with numerous [federal civil] lawsuit[s]. Civil rights attorneys in San Francisco claim that Antioch is purposefully trying to run low income [African-American] residents out of town. Chief James Hyde [pictured above/center] is the Chief of Police in Antioch, California. Chief of police James Hyde is the former police chief of Davis, California, where he [had] a reputation of civil rights violations [against African-Americans].

"[Y]oung African-American students [from UC Davis] marched on the [Davis] Police Station and made multiple efforts to meet with Chief Hyde and his staff. Assistant Chief Pearce went as far as to overtly discourage other police departments from participating in Statewide Campus events aimed at achieving dialogue and understanding on police-minority relations. Finally in frustration [the African-American students] marched on the [Davis] police station, only to have Chief Hyde's staff stand behind protective glass windows, gawking and laughing at the protestors, many of whom had personal accounts of [racial] profiling.

Front row from left: Officer Megan Miller (Lifesaving Award) and Corporal Will Dee (Lifesaving Award). Allegations of Racism seem to follow Chief Hyde January 18, 2010Update! The San Francisco Police Department has quietly fired a veteran inspector - the first officer to be dismissed from the force in more than four years - for a litany of misconduct that included lying about an incident in which Antioch police fired a Taser at her. Inspector Marvetia "Lynn" Richardson, 42, was fired after a closed-door hearing of the Police Commission last month, but the panel made no announcement at the time. City officials confirmed Richardson's firing in response to inquiries from The Chronicle. Richardson worked for the department for 15 years, most recently in the fraud unit. She had been suspended without pay since 2008, when then-Chief Heather Fong accused her of 11 disciplinary infractions. Three of the counts stemmed from a June 2007 incident in which an Antioch police officer used a Taser to subdue her in her home on the city's Mokelumne Drive. Officers were answering a call about someone making threats at Richardson's home. When they arrived, Richardson allegedly ordered them to leave, became belligerent and refused commands to show her hands, prompting the officers to use the Taser, according to the department's charges. She also refused to sign a citation for allegedly resisting arrest. In November 2008, Richardson sued the Antioch police chief, the officers involved and the city, saying they had violated her civil rights by using the Taser wrongfully. The case is scheduled to go to trial in federal court in San Francisco this fall. Before she filed her suit, however, San Francisco police officials concluded Richardson had lied about the incident in explaining it to the department's internal affairs unit. Richardson, they said, told internal investigators that Antioch officers had never warned her they were intending to fire the Taser. They said an audio recording made by officers on the scene contradicted her story. The department also accused her of misusing the police records system in 2007 to track down and send a letter to a woman, telling her that her husband was cheating on her. Richardson apparently was interested romantically in the woman with whom the husband was having the affair, according to the disciplinary charges. The husband intercepted the letter and filed a complaint with the city. Other charges alleged that Richardson had negligently cashed several stolen checks given to her by her tenant as rent, amounting to a total of nearly $26,000. The tenant stole the checks from his parents, according to the charges. Richardson said she did not know the checks were stolen, but the department maintained that as a fraud investigator she should not have accepted checks from a third party. Richardson was also accused of sick time abuse. She allegedly called in sick 29 times over the course of a year but failed to file paperwork that would ensure the time off was recorded as sick leave. An attorney for Richardson, has argued that some of the charges were unfounded and others were lodged too late to comply with the one-year statute of limitations for disciplinary cases. He did not return calls last week seeking comment. Richardson also did not return calls seeking comment. She is the first San Francisco police officer to be fired since Officer Anthony Nelson was dismissed in October 2005, after he was found to have lied about his use of force on an anti-war demonstrator whose arm he broke during a 2003 demonstration. Previous story As of November 11, 2008 a San Francisco police inspector has filed a federal civil rights suit against the city of Antioch, saying a[n] Antioch police officer shocked her with a Taser during a confrontation in her home where she was trying to evict a tenant. Inspector Marvetia Lynn Richardson, 41, a 14-year San Francisco police veteran who is now on unpaid leave from her job, said Antioch officers broke down her door last year, stunned her with a Taser and then took her to jail when she demanded to write "Tasered" on a citation for resisting arrest. Richardson, who is black, said the incident was an outgrowth of Antioch police efforts to enter homes without warrants to harass and drive African American tenants out of federally subsidized housing. Richardson owns her home and [does] not receive [any] housing assistance. Antioch police referred to Richardson during the incident as the "alleged homeowner" and "this so-called SFPD lady," the suit said. The suit [has been] filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. The city has denied any wrongdoing, saying officers acted appropriately while investigating reports of threats of violence against residents at the home. Judge Charles Treat of Contra Costa County Superior Court dismissed the resisting-arrest charge in June, saying the [Antioch] police entry into Richardson's house was illegal. [On July 16, 2008] five African-American women filed a class-action lawsuit against the City of Antioch, charging that the city and its police department are targeting African-American tenants in town and subjecting them to a campaign of harassment and intimidation," said Brad Seligman from impactfund.org. One of the five women is Mary Scott. "He pushed in my house comes in and rambles thought my items finding things to give Section 8," said Scott. Scott says an Antioch police officer searched her house with the intent of finding something that would get her disqualified from her Section 8 housing subsidy. The same officer showed up at her hearing before the Housing Authority. "He tried to say that I had a bad landlord," said Scott. Most notably, the Antioch Police Department has no enforcement authority in the Section 8 housing program. "Is it their job or their responsibility to enforce Section 8 Housing codes?" asked ABC7's Mark Matthews. "No, Section 8 is a program run by the Housing Authority the Contra Costa housing authority," said Antioch City Attorney Lynn Tracy Nerland. Antioch Police - Reality Notice all the Antioch Cops are White or White Hispanics
The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, names the city of Antioch, Police Chief James Hyde, Sgt. Thomas Fuhrmann and Officers Santiago Martinez Jr. (stars in above video), Jason Vanderpool and Jason Joannides. When officer Martinez takes his uniform off, he runs the risk of being "racially profiled" by Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE). Gary Gilbert - UNCLE TOM All the Antioch Police Offiers are White, however there's an Uncle Tom in every crowd. (The following video contains audio only and a still photo of Mr. Gilbert. There is not technical malfunction with your computer.)
"Gilbert is an African American is also a retired Corrections Officer with the state's prison system. He says the Antioch police chief would never discriminate against anyone. But the story is complicated by the fact that the chief of police James Hyde is a former police chief in Davis California, where he did have a reputation of civil rights violations brought about by that city's Human Rights Commission." Note: In the above video, Mr. Gilbert uses the term "safe neighborhood". In real estate jargon, "safe neighborhood" means "white neighborhood". It is a racially discriminatory term used to convey to Whites that the community in question is a white community.
