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.

Cain put his hands up as the officer approached, but continued to walk away slowly. He asked the police officer the reason for the stop, then protested when he heard it: “You were jaywalking,” the officer said on the dash-cam video released by the police department this week. “I looked both ways,” Cain replied. “You’re harassing me. I just got off work. You’re trying to pull me over for nothing.” 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.

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.

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)

Protests & Arrests!

Posted: 08/22/2011 05:42:57 PM PDT
Updated: 08/23/2011 03:01:48 PM PDT

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- The second protest in seven days to disrupt BART service during the evening commute spilled into the street Monday, with more than 100 demonstrators forcing the closure of Market Street directly in front of the Civic Center station. Protesters upset with BART police shootings began the unrest by marching on two train stations in San Francisco during rush hour, triggering the temporary closure of Civic Center and Powell Street stations and the arrest of four people who disobeyed police orders to disperse from the Civic Center platform. Both stations closed intermittently throughout the night before finally reopening after 8:30 p.m.

A woman who identified herself as Beverly Dove, of Berkeley, is arrested by Bay Area Rapid Transit Police, during a protest organized by the group known as "Anonymous," at Civic Center Station in San Francisco Monday August 22, 2011. The group say perceived that Bart Police violated their First Amendment Right three weeks during another protest.

San Francisco police arrested 35 protesters throughout Monday's demonstration for failing to disperse, and police closed a portion of one of the city's main arteries for 20 minutes. BART arrested an additional four protesters on the platform at the Civic Center station.

An unidentified man is arrested by Bay Area Rapid Transit Police, during a protest organized by the group known as "Anonymous," at Civic Center Station in San Francisco Monday August 22, 2011. The group say perceived that Bart Police violated their First Amendment Right three weeks during another protest.

The train service disruptions were less severe than a week ago when BART closed four San Francisco stations to keep protesters away from busy platforms with trains whizzing by. Still, many BART riders seeking to get home were inconvenienced when they found the downtown stations closed. "How am I going to get home tonight?" said Lily Vu, a Fremont resident who works in San Francisco and tried to get on at the Powell Street station. "I rely on BART to get home and now I can't get into the station."

Shortly after 5:15 p.m. when BART police arrested the four Civic Center protesters, Dan Hartwig, BART's deputy police chief, said BART was determined not to allow protesting where it would cause safety problems. "We are not going to tolerate disruptions on the train platforms," Hartwig said.

Things got tense around 7 p.m., when about 60 protesters blocked traffic on Market Street as they chanted anti-police slogans, including "Killer cops" and "Don't shoot." Someone else set off firecrackers in the street. A phalanx of motorcycle officers rode through the street, reopening the roadway to traffic amid cheers from MUNI riders that had been stuck in idled street cars.

Earlier, the protesters forced BART to close the Civic Center and Powell Street stations twice in the span of two hours, starting around 5:30 p.m. Powell Street station was closed when about 100 protesters, some chanting "No justice, no peace, disband BART police," headed there after leaving Civic Center. "BART police are definitely out of line," said Mario Fernandez, a student from Oakland who was protesting Monday. "This was a peaceful assembly," he said. "We are not taking violent tactics. We are just expressing ourselves."

BART reopened both stations just after 6 p.m. before closing them again at 6:30 p.m. Frustrated commuters were left to seek an alternate way to get to their destinations. Brian Daof was trying to make his evening class at San Francisco City College at the Powell street station. "I planned my day on BART's schedule and now I can't get in," Daof said. "This is a big inconvenience."

The protest was the third to target BART since a police officer shot to death a knife-wielding homeless man, Charles Hill, on July 3. BART critics loosely allied with the hacker group Anonymous called for the demonstration to protest the transit agency's decision Aug. 11 to shut down cellphone service at four underground stations in San Francisco to thwart a protest over Hill's shooting. That protest failed to materialize. The BART board is scheduled to meet 9 a.m. Wednesday in Oakland to discuss developing a policy on whether and when cellphone service could be cut again in underground stations.

In the most recent protest Aug. 15, between 100 and 200 demonstrators marched between the four downtown San Francisco BART stations -- Civic Center, Montgomery, Powell and Embarcadero. In response, BART closed the stations temporarily during the evening rush hour to keep protesters from reaching station platforms.

Transit system officials said the closures resulted in only a modest 3.3 percent drop in overall ridership that day. Some 326,900 riders rode BART on Aug. 15, compared to 340,700 on an average Monday at this time of year, BART officials said.

May 10, 2010

OAKLAND — Former Fairfield police Chief Kenton Rainey (pictured left) has been selected to become the new chief of BART's embattled police force, a local television station reported Wednesday night. The media outlet reported that Rainey, currently a commander with the San Antonio, Texas, Police Department, was offered the position two weeks ago, according to sources, and that an official announcement was planned once "the vetting process is complete." Rainey was among four finalists for the BART job and was picked by general manager Dorothy Dugger, the TV station reported. Reached late Wednesday, BART spokesman Linton Johnson had no comment on the story. The BART chief job has been vacant since former Chief Gary Gee resigned in December. Interim Chief Dash Butler has presided over the internal investigation into the New Year's Day 2009 fatal shooting of Oscar Grant III by former Officer Johannes Mehserle, which recently resulted in the dismissal of two officers. Mehserle, who resigned from the force after the incident, is awaiting trial for murder in Southern California.


March 25, 2010

Marysol Domenici is the female officer pictured in the above video.

A Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer involved in the videotaped fatal shooting of an unarmed man last year has been fired, an attorney said Thursday. Marysol Domenici was fired Wednesday by interim BART police chief Dash Butler, said her attorney. Domenici, who was on paid leave since the shooting, has filed an appeal to return to her job of nearly six years, her attorney said. The termination comes several months after a law firm hired to do a probe into the shooting recommended firing Domenici and her partner, officer Tony Pirone, who remained on paid leave.

Domenici and Pirone were the first BART officers to respond to an alleged fight on a train moments before Oscar Grant was fatally shot by then-officer Johannes Mehserle on an Oakland train station platform last New Year's Day. Domenici, 29, testified during a preliminary hearling last year that Grant and his friends swore at her and didn't obey her orders to sit down moments before the shooting. Domenici said she became fearful from taunts by Grant, his friends and passengers on the train. Pirone then hit Grant. Pirone's lawyer has said Grant provoked the blow by trying to knee Pirone at least twice.

Mehserle allegedly shot Grant, who was lying facedown. The incident was video-recorded by bystanders and uploaded to the Internet, sparking riots. The video was subsequently used as evidence during a preliminary hearing. Mehserle, 28, who is white, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Grant, 22, who was black. Mehserle's attorney has said that his client meant to use his stun gun instead of his handgun. Mehserle is scheduled to appear in court Friday for a pretrial hearing in Los Angeles. A trial has been scheduled for mid-June. An Alameda County judge ruled in October that the case be moved out of Oakland because of excessive media coverage and racial tensions.

The attorney for Grant's family, said Thursday that Domenici's firing was just and that the officers' unprovoked actions led to Grant's killing. "They were the instigators of this entire event," the attorney said. "Their over-aggressive behavior led to Oscar Grant's death."

BART board member Lynette Sweet said Thursday that the firing sends "a clear message to the officers that you don't get to disregard policy and get away with it. We are about a year and two months late doing this, but it's better late than never."

February 6, 2010

BullSh@t Burris!

OAKLAND — An attorney representing the family of Oscar Grant III, who was killed by a BART police officer last year, lashed out against the transit organization and its attorney Friday, saying both have acted unethically and broken any trust built in the last year. John Burris, who filed a $50 million wrongful-death lawsuit against the public agency for the killing of Grant by former BART police officer Johannes Mehserle, said Friday that statements made by the agency's private attorney and anonymous sources about recent settlement talks are "unethical" and could "crater the deal." "I'm angry," a visibly irritated Burris said. "It really is the most shocking thing — and I have been practicing law a long time — I have seen."

Burris' rant against the agency and its private attorney came during a news conference he organized Friday afternoon to respond to news stories in the past two weeks about a $1.5 million settlement that was reached between the mother of Grant's child and BART. Burris was incensed about statements made by unnamed sources who indicated the settlement agreement offered proof that Burris' case against the transit agency was breaking down. The statements gave details about the settlement talks that Burris claimed Friday were untrue and should have remained confidential. Those included statements that Burris settled the $1.5 million lawsuit for less than what BART originally was prepared to pay.

Although those statements came from unnamed sources, Burris said he believed they were made by someone at BART because only he and BART know about the details revealed in the media. "I blame BART," Burris said. Burris also took issue with comments by Bart's Attorney who said BART would not pay Grant's friends anything to settle a separate civil rights case they filed against the agency because the friends had criminal records and officers had the right to arrest them the night Grant was killed. Burris said it was "shocking" that BART would make such a declaration given that Grant's friends were handcuffed and held for five hours after the shooting with "no consideration given to the impact that the shooting had on them." "The fact that one or more of them have a criminal record, so what," Burris said. "BART's comments suggest that they believe these black men have no rights. Where I come from, a black man has rights."

BART and their attorney, Burris said, have placed Grant's friends in danger by highlighting, once again, statements made by one of Grant's friends that Mehserle said he was going to use his Taser on Grant just before he shot him. Attorneys representing Mehserle, who is charged with murder for shooting Grant, have said that Mehserle intended to use his Taser against Grant but grabbed his gun by mistake. Although the statement by Grant's friend had been previously reported and placed in the public record during a preliminary hearing last year, Burris argued Friday that highlighting it again has placed a "snitch label" on the friend. "They have been threatened, statements have been made to their families," Burris said. "Now you place them in jeopardy, you have put a snitch jacket on them."

Bart's attorney said Friday that he never talked to any reporter about "money left on the table" and only gave interviews about the settlement because state law mandates that public agencies reveal details about lawsuit settlements. "I deny ever speaking to anyone about money left on the table," Bart's attorney said. "I have just answered questions from reporters regarding the settlement of the child's case." He also defended statements he made about Grant's friends. "Mr. Burris can do whatever he feels necessary in the best interests of his client and I will continue to defend and act in the best interest of my client to reach a fair and reasonable settlement," the attorney said.

Burris said the comments by Bart's Attorney and unnamed sources have changed his view of the transit agency and its willingness to make changes in response to the Grant shooting. Burris suggested BART does not want a fair settlement but instead is trying to create a feud between Grant's family and the mother of his child and, at the same time, portray everyone involved in a lawsuit against the agency in a negative light. "Why would (BART) do it? To diminish the family," Burris said. "These comments unraveled the progress that was being made "... unraveled any public trust in BART. "I have no reservations about trying all of these cases," Burris continued.

Berkeley Police Chief Daschel Butler to BART Police Chief!

December 29, 2009

BART has named former Berkeley Police Chief Daschel Butler as the transit system's acting police chief during a search for a replacement for Gary Gee, who retires today as chief. Butler, 60, a police consultant, served 31 years in the Berkeley police department. He was chief there between 1990 and May 2002.

BART General Manager Dorothy Dugger announced Tuesday that Butler will begin his duties at BART in mid-January. Until he arrives Maria White, a BART police commander, will serve as acting chief. Gee came under sharp criticism after a transit police officer fatally shot Oscar Grant, an unarmed passenger, on New Year's Eve a year ago.

The B.A.R.T. Aftermath

"The lingering protests and scattered nighttime violence downtown this week surprised a lot of people, as if the bold response seemed out of sync with the shooting. But even though the victim was from Hayward, and the incident took place on BART property and involved BART police, the story line for many has moved on — to Oakland."

On January 1, 2009, B.A.R.T Police Officer Johannes Mehserle, without visible provocation, shot and killed Oscar Grant, 22 of Hayward (See video below and on sidebar.). The officer remains free and has not been charged with any wrongdoing. [B.A.R.T.] Transit police officer Johannes Mehserle was initially placed on paid leave. He resigned from the BART police force Wednesday [January 7, 2009], but officials say he has refused to speak with the transit agency's investigators. He has not spoken publicly about the incident.

Videos shot by onlookers show Grant being pushed onto his stomach shortly before Mehserle fired his gun at Grant's back. The bullet ricocheted off pavement and pierced his lung, killing him. The video footage has led to debate over whether the officer knowingly shot Grant, as the victim's family alleges.

The Rioting

Extra police were posted Thursday at Bay Area Rapid Transit stations after a group of angry demonstrators smashed storefronts late Wednesday, set fire to cars and clashed with officers equipped with riot gear and tear gas in downtown Oakland. More than 100 people were arrested and about 300 businesses were damaged.

The Shooting (updated clip) 1/1/09

"In grainy cell-phone videos played over and over on the Internet, police officers force an unarmed black man to the ground and hold him face-down on a crowded train platform. Suddenly one of the officers draws his gun and fatally shoots the man in the back — then looks up. Some experts have questioned whether he fired his gun deliberately or mistakenly believed he was using his stun gun instead."

"[G]eorge Kirkham, a professor of criminology at the Florida State University who also viewed the footage, said he finds that hard to believe because most Taser stun guns do not look or feel like pistols, and the officer fired in a manner consistent with a handgun, not a Taser.

Kirkham, who works as an expert witness in criminal cases, speculated the officer fired because he thought he saw something in Grant's waistband or pocket that appeared to be a gun or other type of weapon.

"It's not believable that any officer can mix up a Taser and a firearm," said Kirkham, who has examined almost 500 police shootings over the past 30 years. "It's like looking for your steering wheel on the right side of your car rather than the left side.""
