Columbus, OH (NOV. 29, 2016) ~ USA -- Knife weilding suspect Abdul Razak Ali Artan was almost immediately shot by OSU police officer Alan Horujko. Horujko was immediately hailed as a hero by mainstream media. Horujko is perhaps a hero for ending a serious threat. However, it appears that mainstream media is not telling the entire story. Most significantly, several of the students injured during the attack were injured by Horujko’s poor marksmanship, not by Artan’s knife.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- (WCJB) ~ United States California officials fear dozens may have died in a massive fire that swept through an Oakland warehouse where a concert was taking place Friday night. Nine people have been confirmed dead, and dozens of others remain missing, officials said. In a news conference Saturday, authorities said they expected the death toll to rise, but they did not know by how much. “We’re expecting the worst — maybe a couple dozen victims here,” Sgt. Ray Kelly, spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, told reporters. “We did not have a lot of victims go to the hospital,” Kelly said. “It appears that people either made it out, or they didn’t make it out.”

EL CENTRO, CA (WCJB) ~ United States The El Centro Police Department said it's investigating a video that shows officers using force on a suspect who put several people in danger Tuesday afternoon. The video shows officers beating 23-year-old Elizardo Saenz, an El Centro resident. It also shows a K-9 police dog attacking Saenz. (Click here for video)


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. The car belonged to a woman named Lakeya Hicks, who had the paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. Hicks’ tags weren’t expired, and a check on her license came up clean. However, the cops didn’t let her go. (Click here for video)


Brooklyn, NY (WCJB) ~ United States -- When an unmarked police car drove very close to mailman Glenn Grays in Brooklyn, Grays shouted at the car.

New York ~ United States -- Opening statements and testimony began this week in the long-awaited trial of New York City police officer Peter Liang for the killing of Akai Gurley, an unarmed 28-year-old African-American man walking down the stairs in his apartment building, part of the Louis H. Pink housing projects in the East New York section of Brooklyn. Jury selection in the case was completed last week. 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.

Brooklyn, NY -- A newly-released surveillance video (Click here for video) contradicts an undercover NYPD police officer who arrested four people in Brooklyn for allegedly trying to rob him on Dec. 26, 2015, according to a defense lawyer. Jean Scott, 33; Peterson Duplan, 28; Ricardi Joseph, 29; and Samantha Dabel, 24, said that they were approached by a man who tried to buy drugs from them at a hardware store. The undercover cop was identified as Winston McDonald, who testified in court that Duplan allegedly flashed a switchblade at him outside of the store, and said, "Give me your money or I will stab you," according to court papers.

Forth Worth, TX -- The mother of ‘affluenza’ teen Ethan Couch was ordered released from a Tarrant County jail cell after a bond hearing this afternoon. She may be leaving the jail soon. Judge Wayne Salvant ordered her bond reduced to $75,000 with several conditions. The conditions include weekly visits with the Community Supervisions and Corrections Department of Tarrant County. She is also not to consume alcoholic beverages or use social media. “Let’s look at it for what it is, I understand everyone is concerned and there is outrage in the community… but as a judge I have to look at the law,” said Judge Salvant. Couch and her lawyers were present at a 2 p.m. bond hearing at the Tarrant County Justice Center hoping to have her bond reduced. It was originally set at $1 million since she was charged with Hindering Apprehension of a Felon. (Click here for video)

Salt Lake City, Utah -- Exactly one year after a man was shot and killed during an altercation with a Salt Lake City Police Department officer, a former Davis County Sheriff says new video (Click here for video)footage indicates the officer's actions may not have been justified.

Philadelphia, PA ~ USA -- Corrupt Justice™ has obtained a video (Click here for video) of the police shooting that took place Thursday night at 60th and Spruce streets.

Stunningly, Hartnett can be seen in the video getting out of his patrol car and chasing down the shooter after being ambushed. Officials say Hartnett is in critical but stable condition.

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)

Montgomery County, Pa. -- Bill Cosby, the comedian and entertainer once known as “America’s dad”, appeared in court (Click here for video) to face his first criminal charge for sexual misconduct on Wednesday, for an incident in which he allegedly drugged and violated a woman who considered him to be her mentor. In a hearing lasting less than 10 minutes, Judge Elizabeth McHugh read out the three second-degree felony charges of aggravated indecent assault. He did not appear visibly moved; when asked if he understood the charges, he replied simply: “Yes.” Bail was set at $1m, of which Cosby will have to pay 10% on Wednesday. Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison for each charge.

Oklahoma City OK ~ USA -- A former Oklahoma City police officer was convicted Thursday of 18 of the 36 counts he faced, including four counts of first-degree rape, related to accusations that he victimized 13 women on his police beat in a minority, low-income neighborhood. Daniel Holtzclaw, 29, sobbed (Click here for video) as the verdict was read aloud. He could spend the rest of his life in prison based on the jury's recommendations, which include a 30-year sentence on each of the first-degree rape counts.

Palo Alto Police Chief Lynne Johnson, Racist



«• November 6, 2009 •»

White Plains, New York (WCJB) -- Former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik on Thursday pleaded guilty to charges of lying to Bush administration officials who vetted his unsuccessful 2004 nomination to be homeland security secretary. Kerik admitted to eight counts as part of a plea agreement with federal prosecutors, who are recommending a 27-to-33 month prison term. U.S. District Judge Stephen Robinson set Kerik's sentencing for February 18, 2010. In court papers, prosecutors said Kerik denied to a White House official that there was "any possible concern" about his relationships with the contractors involved in renovations to his apartment or that he had any financial dealings with prospective city contractors. Kerik has spent the past two weeks in jail after a judge revoked his bail. According to court papers released in late October, he violated the terms of his bail by leaking confidential evidence about his case to a lawyer who published the material online.

E.P.A. Racism!



Posted: 12/17/2010 03:00:00 AM PST
Updated: 12/17/2010 06:41:54 AM PST


An East Palo Alto council member who has been censured twice by colleagues says he has never been appointed mayor in his six years on the council because the city's mayoral selection policy is "racist and evil." A. Peter Evans (pictured left) who was first elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2008, read aloud from a memo he sent to council members hours before their Dec. 7 meeting to select the next mayor. Evans noted that although he served as vice mayor in 2006, his colleagues the following year scrapped a policy that traditionally led to mayoral appointments through rotation and replaced it with one that called for selection based on a majority vote of the five-member council. At its meeting last week, the council voted 4-1, with Evans dissenting, to make Carlos Romero its new mayor.

"This racist and evil policy has violated my electoral and civil rights," said Evans, who is African-American. "My right to serve my constituents and the city as mayor and vice mayor must be restored and not denied by fellow council members." In the e-mail, Evans also said he plans to protest the policy by leaving each meeting after roll call. But he didn't follow through with the threat at this week's regular council meeting.

"Unfortunately, we have a council member that wants to play the race card," Carlos Romero (pictured left) said in an interview. He said Evans is "volatile" and called his allegations "patently false," adding that both the council and the community it represents are diverse. Council Member David Woods, who served as mayor in 2010, is also African-American (C.J.: This does not mean the decision to not appoint Evans was not a racist one. Ward Connerly served as a UC Regent.).

This week, City Attorney Vincent Ewing sent a letter to Evans stating that his allegations are "factually and legally inaccurate."

"Nothing in the City's Municipal Code, nor in the Government Code vests you with an 'electoral or civil' right to be voted into the position of Mayor by your fellow council members," Ewing wrote. "Nomination and election to that position is discretionary and rests among council members." "Notably," Ewing told Evans in the e-mail, "you did not complain about the said policy or its predecessor policy" when named vice mayor four years ago. Evans countered that the rotation policy was changed when it would have been his turn to be mayor. As a result, he wasn't selected.

The previous mayoral selection policy stated that it is "the desire of the City Council to increase the opportunities for each Councilmember to serve as Mayor or Vice Mayor by establishing the practice of annual rotation of both offices."

It went on to say that "the Councilmember who has served during the preceding year as Vice-Mayor shall be selected as Mayor," by a majority vote of the council. The new policy does not mention a rotation of leadership or suggest an ascension from vice mayor to mayor.

Evans, who voted against the change in wording at the time, said the council has deliberately excluded him from the top post, partly because of his strong connection to the city's African-American culture and community. Evans was side-stepped from the post in 2007 when the council was preparing to censure him for allegedly making offensive and racial remarks to city employees. In 2009, Evans received another rebuke for allegedly making disrespectful comments to a city employee during council meetings.

Evans said he doesn't believe his sharp, brusque manner should prevent him from being given a turn as mayor. "One person against four can't be controlling and polarizing," he said. His actions on behalf of city residents are what got him elected and re-elected, he added.

Resident Ora Johnson is among Evans' fans, some of whom spoke on his behalf at last week's meeting. On Thursday, she called him, "a good man" who makes time to talk to residents and has even offered financial assistance at times to those in need. "People say he has issues, but we all have different sorts of issues," Johnson said. "But people have to understand that Peter is for the good of the community."

October 28, 2010



The San Diego police officer killed in an apartment shootout was identified Thursday as Christopher Wilson, a 17-year veteran. Wilson (pictured above, center) was killed Wednesday night in the Skyline neighborhood, where five suspects were holed up in an apartment. Two of the suspects were killed and three were arrested. A U.S. marshal and county probation officers accompanied by San Diego police officers went to the apartment building Wednesday night to serve a warrant for probation violation.

Police had recognized a person inside the apartment as a suspect in a case of assault with a deadly weapon, according to Acting Assistant Police Chief Jim Collins of the San Diego Police Department. As authorities entered the apartment, the five suspects barricaded themselves in a back bedroom and exchanged gunfire with the officers, wounding Wilson. The officers scrambled out of the apartment, and Wilson was taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

A SWAT team was assembled, and hours later, using tear gas and a flash-bang grenade, officers stormed the apartment, exchanging gunfire with the people inside, officials said. Once inside, police found a man and woman in a back bedroom, both dead and carrying handguns. It was unclear how they were killed. Three others were arrested.

A Belgian Malinois police dog was treated at a veterinary hospital and expected to return to duty soon.

Earlier version:

A San Diego police officer was killed late Wednesday during a shootout in the Skyline neighborhood in which two other people also were killed and three arrested, police said Thursday. In an exchange of gunfire inside an apartment, a San Diego police officer was killed and a police dog wounded (This is great news!).

The incident began when a U.S. marshal and county probation officers, accompanied by San Diego police, went to an apartment building to serve a warrant for probation violation. Police had recognized a person inside the apartment as a suspect in a case of assault with a deadly weapon, according to San Diego Acting Assistant Police Chief Jim Collins.

A SWAT team was assembled, and hours later, using tear gas and a flash-bang grenade, officers stormed the apartment, exchanging gunfire with the people inside, officials said. Once inside, police found a man and woman in a back bedroom, both dead. It was unclear how they were killed. Three other people were arrested.

The dead officer is described only as a 17-year veteran of the department.

[Updated at 10:30 a.m.: An earlier version of this post incorrectly said the police officer killed was a 15-year veteran. He has been identified as Christopher Wilson.]


Daddy's Shining Star!


October 22, 2010Update!



September 27, 2010

SAN JOSE, CA – Most fathers would have taken him aside for a quiet chat. But when one police officer found out a 15-year-old boy had slept with his 14-year-old step-daughter, he took things a little bit further. The unnamed California motorcycle cop went round to the youth’s house in uniform and staged a fake arrest, claiming that he was being detained for sexual assault. As his parents looked on, the officer handcuffed the boy and gave him a five-minute dressing down about his conduct before letting him go. The policeman has now been put on administrative leave whilst an internal investigation and a district attorney probe are carried out.

The case has echoes of the 2000 comedy ‘Meet the Parents’ in which Robert De Niro plays a retired FBI officer who quizzes the man who wants to marry his daughter on every aspect of his personal life. But this real-life version has divided opinion as to whether or not the officer went too far or was just doing what most fathers in his position would do.

The officer drove to the boy’s house on his police motorbike and went inside where mobile phone footage taken by one of the boy’s parents shows him standing in the middle of the room lecturing the youth.



On the footage the officer says to the boy: ‘It does not bode well for you. Do you know what that means? No? ‘Not a good thing that the person you had sex with is a cop’s daughter. The district attorney will probably file charges.’ The family’s lawyer said the officer’s behaviour amounted to ‘scared straight’ tactics that went too far.

‘He made comments like, ‘You don’t mess with a cop’s daughter.’ That’s a show of authority, that’s inappropriate,’ the family's attorney said. ‘Applying force, applying handcuffs, threatening the young man with things such as rape in prison. ‘He acted like a cowboy. He lost it, he came in and he abused his authority.’

Lawyers for the policeman have suggested that the boy’s parents were complicit either by giving their permission or doing nothing to stop the tirade. The Police Officer's Attorney said: ‘At no time did you hear the parents of the young man objecting, getting upset, crying. So the video is absolutely exculpatory from the cop’s perspective,’ she said.

‘The officer was essentially invited to use ‘scare straight’ tactics, and there were no objections to the lecture or the handcuffing. ‘Everything was done in the spirit of reaching a troubled young man who is heading down the wrong path.’ She added that early in the video the boy’s stepfather advises his handcuffed son: ‘Use your head. Think about what he is talking to you about. Listen to his words. Replay them in your head.’\

The boy’s parents filed a complaint with the police and both the boy and the girl were cited for unlawful sexual intercourse. The misdemeanour, for minors who are close in age and have consensual sex, is rarely prosecuted. None of the adults have been identified to protect the identities of the two minors.

San Jose Police Department spokesman Sgt. Ronnie Lopez said the officer may have violated some of the force policies which relate to conduct involving personal feelings and policing ones own neighbourhood, but could not comment further. Should the district attorney file criminal charges the officer could face jail for false imprisonment.


Palo Alto P.D.!




Chief Lynne Johnson


November 4, 2008

UPDATE: On November 20, [2008] the City of Palo Alto announced that its controversial police chief will retire on December 19 [,2008]. Chief Lynne Johnson sparked protests and a November 9 march on the city when she stated that she had instructed officers on her force to make "consensual contact" with African American men to counter a crime spike in Palo Alto. 

Her remarks were quoted in news reports worldwide and the topic of racial profiling became a much discussed issue at subsequent city council meetings. It's ironic that African-Americans will now foot a portion of the taxes used to fund Ms. Johnson's pension.

Original Story

Palo Alto Police Chief Lynne Johnson reveal[ed] at a meeting [October 30, 2008] that she instructed [Palo Alto Police] officers to stop African-Americans [in the City of Palo Alto] and "find out who they are.''

False statements by the Mayor

Palo Alto Mayor Larry Klein called his police chief's statements "unacceptable.''
"I don't think Palo Alto wants to be known as some place that has racial profiling,'' Klein said. "It's against our core values. It's unacceptable, unconstitutional and un-American.''

In an interview with the MediaNews, Johnson said her remarks — which were captured on videotape — were misinterpreted. She apologized in particular for her comments about stopping anyone "wearing a do-rag.'' She denied instructing her officers to make stops based on race.

"I haven't actually instructed my officers in this regard at all,'' she said." They know what to do.''

"We do not want to create an environment of fear for people of color in this community, absolutely not,'' Johnson said during the community meeting at Palo Alto City Hall. ''But on the other hand, we have to do due diligence in trying to apprehend the suspects who are doing this.''

After the meeting, Johnson told KGO-TV that she "instructed her officers to make contact with African-Americans in Palo Alto'' because several suspects were identified as African-Americans. Descriptions of suspects involved in the string of recent robberies were vague, she said.

"When our officers are out there and they see an African-American, in a congenial way, we want them to find out who they are,'' Johnson said.

"The one suspect around the California Avenue train station is wearing a do-rag,'' she said in the interview." If my officers see an African-American who has a do rag on his head, absolutely the officers will be stopping and trying to find out who that person is.''

Johnson, 57, is a 33-year veteran of the department. She joined the force after graduating with a psychology degree from San Jose State University, and rose from field training officer, research analyst, watch commander, sergeant and lieutenant. She was the department's first female captain and assistant chief, and was named chief in 2003.

Johnson's remarks re-ignites a bitter community debate about a 2002 case in which a pair of rookie police officers beat and pepper-sprayed a 59-year-old black man who refused to identify himself. In that case, Johnson was praised by many residents for launching a months-long campaign to improve relations between law enforcement and African-Americans.

East Palo Alto Mayor Patricia Foster said she was "outraged'' by Johnson's comments.
''This is nothing new. Palo Alto Police has always acted this way,'' said Foster. "This is the first time that the Palo Alto police chief has had the nerve to put it into words.''

The issue of racial profiling is so prevalent, said attorney Michael Risher of the ACLU of Northern California, ''that unfortunately it doesn't surprise.''

''Stopping people based on the color of their skin is just plain wrong,'' he said. "If the robbers had been described as young white men wearing Stanford University baseball caps, I just can't imagine the Palo Alto police stopping everyone who matches that description.''
