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. Brown can be heard groaning in anguish after an officer shouts “Taser! Taser! Taser!”

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. 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)

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)

Oakland Police Department, III, Corrupt

June 16, 2009

Oakland, CA (WCJB)

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

OAKLAND, CA -- The city of Oakland will pay $900,000 to settle two separate cases alleging police misconduct. BayArea media sources reports that Oakland officials have agreed to pay $550,000 to a 15-year-old boy who filed suit against Oakland after he was shot in the back by an Oakland police officer Alan Leal in July 2007. Police said the boy, whose name has not been released, appeared to have put drugs in his mouth, run from officers, discarded a gun and was shot when he appeared to be reaching into his waistband. Assistant City Attorney Barbara Parker told the media that after undergoing five surgeries, the boy incurred $440,000 in medical costs.

In a second case, Oakland has agreed to pay $350,000 in attorney's fees to Novender Fleming and Victor Jones involving a suit in which officers were accused of unlawfully searching a home where marijuana was being grown in September 2008. The settlement comes after Fleming and Jones were awarded $37,500 by a federal grand jury last year.


OPD Non-Compliant!

September 18, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO -- A federal judge told top Oakland police officials Thursday he would consider sanctions and contempt proceedings against them if the department's reform in wake of the Riders police misconduct case doesn't improve.

Judge Thelton Henderson's threats came on the heels of a "disappointing report" from the court's monitors, who are charged with writing quarterly evaluations of how the Oakland Police Department is coming along in the dozens of tasks to which the department agreed in case's settlement eight years ago.

Henderson said he would even consider a receivership -- under which the department could be placed under federal control -- but that such a move would be "drastic."

If such an action were taken, Henderson could appoint someone from outside the department who would have authority over the chief to oversee an area of reform not yet completed to the satisfaction of the judge or monitors, Oakland police officials said, adding that sanctions or fines could be brought if the judge feels someone is maliciously trying to impede implementation of all or part of the agreement.

Henderson said he's now asking for weekly reports from the monitors.

"I am unconvinced the promise of change is any more real than it was five years ago," when former police Chief Wayne Tucker assumed office and made promises similar to Batts', Henderson said.

Robert Warshaw, a former police chief and head of the monitoring team, said he was concerned the department's efforts to address the problems relied too heavily on forming committees and adding bureaucracy, "building up and out" rather than down and into foundation issues.

Of particular contention was the department's use of IPAS Inspection, a program designed to give supervisors an array of information about their subordinates' on-the-job behavior, including the number of sick days they take and the number of Internal Affairs or excessive force complaints they receive.

Monitors found the department has made ineffective use of the program, with entries not being made and supervisors not being held responsible for the information the system contains.

The IPAS system has been altered since the monitors finished their second-quarter report, said police Capt. Benson Fairow, who is in charge of the program.

Fairow said the department is reducing its reliance on summary findings and focusing more on interviews when red flags go up about its officers.

City Administrator Dan Lindheim said it's important to understand, but not necessarily accept, that institutional change happens slowly.

"In context, two years ago there was no system, and it was only one year ago the system became functional," Lindheim said of the IPAS issue. He added that the layoffs the department suffered in July -- and are likely to suffer again if voters don't approve a new parcel tax in November -- mostly affect the newest recruits, leaving a department staffed predominantly by "those who worked under older regimes."

"At the end of the day, any officer who came in from 2006 to the present will be laid off," if the parcel tax doesn't pass, Lindheim said.

An attorney, who along with John Burris represented 119 plaintiffs named in the Riders' case and has pressed the department to hold to its agreement ever since, said he doesn't believe officers are being punished for failing their end of the agreements.

"A truly cultural, meaningful, lasting change would make ordeals like the last eight years no longer necessary," the attorney said.

"If things have not changed enough by the end of the year, we're going to ask for more involvement from the court," Burris added.

[A]n attorney for the police department, said she understood the court's frustration but cited a January 2009 search warrant scandal as proof "the institutional reforms you sought from us are working." That scandal surfaced when an internal police audit headed by Assistant Chief Howard Jordan discovered officers falsifying search warrant applications with false drug test results.

The police attorney also said that policing is "work that by its very nature introduces moral hazards" to the people charged with performing it, including tough issues like racial profiling, and that "I see Chief Batts having these difficult conversations openly."

[A]n attorney for the Oakland Police Officer's Association, said the union "hasn't had a voice in what's going on. That's not our role."

However, he added, "Our members' complaints are not about compliance, but about the effect of taking them away from the time they have to do their job."

In 2000, the same attorney said, a patrol sergeant would spend 80 to 90 percent of his time on the clock in the field; today, he said, it's closer to 15 percent, the rest of it spent with reports and other paperwork.

In defending the department, city officials and attorneys largely relied on the January appointment of new police Chief Anthony Batts.

Dozens of police captains and lieutenants attended the hearing on Batts' orders, underscoring a point Lindheim made that Batts was incorporating the department's leadership more directly in its compliance efforts.

Batts emphasized he made no excuses for the department and that he shoulders responsibility for how it functions, regardless of how long he's been in charge. However, he said, crime is down. "When I walk down the street," he said, "people are coming up and saying, 'You're doing a good job. We're moving in the right direction.'"

Batts said he is instituting accountability throughout the department by holding supervisors on every level responsible for their subordinates -- from sergeants on up to the most powerful officers.

Jordan, who was acting chief until Batts took over, said he himself had even been held accountable for department failures.

Batts said three internal affairs investigations had opened this week on his orders and that he meets weekly with the department's command staff to emphasize new policies that will bring the department into compliance with the agreement.

Criminal Back on Force!

September 17, 2010

OAKLAND, CA -- An Oakland police officer fired for falsifying search warrants in drug cases has returned to work after an arbitrator decided Aug. 6 he did not lie on sworn statements.

The arbitrator ordered the department to reinstate William Burke with back pay and seniority, his lawyer Terry Bowman said Friday. Burke was issued a written reprimand for failing to properly proofread the statements, which contributed to the controversy.

Bowman said Burke is disappointed the police department failed to recognize the difference between a proofreading mistake and an intentional lie. But Burke is relieved, the lawyer added, that the arbitrator knew the difference and is glad to be back at work.

Oakland officials accused Burke and 10 other officers in 2008 of lying on affidavits to Alameda County judges for search warrants in drug cases and to internal affairs investigators.

The sworn statements made it appear that they had tested substances bought on the street to determine if they were drugs. The statements were used by judges to issue search warrants on homes and apartments that, in most instances, resulted in the arrest of residents in a variety of felony crimes including drug possession with the intent to sell.

Most of the criminal cases that resulted from the illegal searches have been dismissed or charges against defendants dropped.

Four officers, including Burke, were fired. The others were Francisco Martinez, John Kelly and Karla Rush. Those three have not yet been reinstated.

4 Oakland Police Officers Fired

April 25, 2009

Four Oakland police officers were fired this week for their roles in the department's search warrant controversy, in which officers falsified sworn affidavits, resulting in illegal raids on the homes of mostly small-time drugs dealers in East Oakland. The officers fired this week include:

Karla Rush;
Francisco Martinez;
John Kelly; and
William Burke.

Each has seven to 10 years of experience in the department. The terminations are the most issued by the department at one time since four officers were fired in the Riders police misconduct scandal. "You have a police department that's really out of control and these officers are finally going to be held accountable," Amey Law Firm spokesperson Jason Hodge said.

The firings stem from a Police Department admission in September that a number of officers had misstated facts in sworn affidavits to Alameda County judges that they had tested substances bought on the street to determine if they were drugs. The officers made the statements even though no test was ever conducted on the substances. The sworn statements later were used by judges to issue search warrants on homes and apartments that, in most instances, resulted in the arrest of residents in a variety of felony crimes including drug possession with the intent to sell and, in one case, possession of illegal ammunition.

(Howard Jordan, Interim Oakland Police Chief - pictured left) In fact, top police officials initially defended its officers saying the issue was a result of poor training and not a malicious attempt by officers to skirt the rules in order to win a speedy search warrant. Since the matter came to public light, Chief Tucker has resigned under pressure from the Oakland City Council. Howard Jordan has been acting Chief since Tucker's resignation. Police spokesman Jeff Thomason refused to comment on April 24, 2009, saying state law prohibits the department from speaking about personnel matters.

"Historically in Oakland, the command staff never takes the hit," said an attorney who represents 10 of 18 officers who were investigated by internal affairs. "The command staff is never held responsible for its mistakes. It's the officers and sergeants that take the hit."

Nevertheless, the department began an internal affairs investigation and as criminal cases began to be dismissed and defendants released from prison, the department placed at least eight officers on paid administrative leave. Since the department acknowledged its officers had made misstatements to judges in September, dozens of criminal cases have been placed in question and criminal charges against 12 defendants have been dropped.

Since the imbroglio first was revealed, the attorneys and the union representing the officers have argued that the problems were caused by a lack of training and not intentional misconduct by the officers. But an internal affairs investigation found otherwise, according to City Attorney John Russo. Earlier this year, Russo said officers "knew or should have known that information in their affidavits regarding the testing of drugs was false." Russo also said officers had "made untruthful statements in response to questions from Internal Affairs investigators." In addition, attorneys at the Public Defender's Office and those representing clients in two federal civil rights lawsuits have said evidence suggests the officers purposely lied on their sworn affidavits.

"This is significant in the sense that these were sworn statements given to judges," said an attorney representing those arrested. "You don't need to be trained to tell the truth."

The recommendation to fire the officers came from an independent hearing officer who met with the officers, their attorneys, and city and police officials numerous times during the past month. The City Administrator then made the final decision. "Oakland police officers must live up to the highest standards of honesty and integrity," Russo said. "Evidence of false or incorrect affidavits must be taken extremely seriously."

Seven of the Oakland police officers who were fired following allegations that they had falsified search warrants for drug suspects returned to work on April 15, 2009. The seven officers were reinstated based on recommendations by an independent hearing officer and Acting Police Chief Howard Jordan.

December 24, 2008

Issues revolving around search warrants first surfaced in September [2008] when the [Oakland] police department admitted almost two dozen officers had made "misstatements" in sworn affidavits about testing substances purchased on the street during undercover operations or through informants.

(Wayne G. Tucker, former Oakland Police Chief - pictured left) " ... [A]t least eight [Oakland Police] officers have been placed on paid administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation into [intentional] "misstatements" [or lies they told when] they made on sworn affidavits used to secure [drug] search warrants. The imbroglio has also begun to affect unrelated cases, as [Oakland Police] officers are refusing to testify in court for fear of being questioned about search warrants. (See, “More Oakland police officers placed on leave.” By Paul T. Rosynsky, Oakland Tribune. Updated: 11/20/2008 11:12:38 PM PST.)

In total, almost 20 officers have been involved in the search warrant problem but many of them have been cleared of wrongdoing and are again working the streets. Two [drug] cases were dropped on 12/22/08 as two men, who were serving state prison sentences on criminal drug charges, had their cases dismissed and were ordered to be set free, said Ray Keller, an assistant public defender. (See, Oakland police department wants to fire officer.” By Paul T. Rosynsky, Oakland Tribune. Posted: 12/23/2008 08:00:48 PM PST - Updated: 12/24/2008 06:38:25 AM PST.)

Thus far, the following Oakland Police Officers have been (publicly) implicated:

Karla Rush;
Francisco Martinez; and
Alan Leal

[Alameda County] Judge Sandra Bean requested that Officers Francisco Martinez and Alan Leal meet with her for a closed-door session to answer questions from defense attorneys and provide information proving the existence of informants. (See, "Judge orders two Oakland police officers to prove existence of informants." By Paul T. Rosynsky Oakland Tribune. Updated: 12/05/2008 07:17:54 AM PST.)

In the affidavits, Rush (who was placed on paid administrative leave last month, is responsible for writing more than 30 faulty sworn affidavits that were used to convince judges that search warrants were needed to raid the homes of suspected small-time drug dealers) wrote that substances purchased on the street during undercover operations or through informants were tested, though no test was conducted. The affidavits were submitted to Alameda County judges who, based on what was stated, issued search warrants for mostly East Oakland homes of suspected small-time drug dealers.

" ... [I]n the case of Henry Williams, who was arrested and charged in March [2008] with possession of a controlled substance, public defender Andrew Steckler asked for the police to prove an informant exist[ed]. Williams was the victim of a questionable search [on] March 28 after Officer Francisco Martinez swore in an affidavit [that] an informant purchased methamphetamine from Williams' home four days before the search. Martinez stated in the sworn affidavit the substance the informant purchased was tested, and the test concluded it was methamphetamine. Based on his sworn statement, Alameda County Superior Court Judge Carol Brosnahan issued a search warrant." Officer Martinez also lied and stated his information was based upon information from a reliable informant who had previously assisted Oakland Police in recovering an illegal fire arm. Martinez told Alameda County Superior Court Judge Sandra Bean that the informant never helped police locate a firearm.(See, Oakland police department wants to fire officer.” By Paul T. Rosynsky, Oakland Tribune. Posted: 12/23/2008 08:00:48 PM PST - Updated: 12/24/2008 06:38:25 AM PST.)

(Note: Alameda County Superior Court Judge Carol Brosnahan (pictured left with wine glass & buzzin') routinely issues search and arrest warrants based upon intentionally false and malicious statments made by police officers, including Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, the University of California Police Department and the Alameda County Sheriff's Department. Carol Brosnahan is a dishonest and corrupt judge.)

Since the [Oakland Police] department disclosed the [malicious conduct], eight criminal cases have been dropped and probation revocations against two defendants were overturned. The [Oakland] Police Department has also been named in two federal civil rights lawsuits, both of which name Rush as a defendant. While Rush was the first officer named in the department's dilemma, and the author of a majority of the faulty affidavits, she was not the only one writing "misstatements" in sworn documents. In fact, [Officer] Francisco Martinez, admitted to judge [Sandra Bean] two weeks ago that in addition to making an error about testing substances bought on the street, he also "made a mistake" in writing on a sworn affidavit that a secret informant was reliable because the informant helped police locate a firearm in an unrelated case.
