OR (Photo) William Paul “Willie” Taylor, 48, is a former Oregon Police Officer. He is suspected of committing a double murder of his own parents. On September 14, 2017 at approximately 8:00 p.m., officers of the Nampa Police department responded to an address in the 1900 block of West Flamingo. Police received a report of an unattended death. Arriving officers found two bodies at a residence. “[T]he nature of the deaths w[ere] suspicious.” Investigators with the Nampa Police Department and the Canyon County Coroner determined the deaths were likely murder. Taylor was taken into custody Friday morning in Deschutes County. He was arrested on 4 unrelated charges of possession of a stolen vehicle: unauthorized use of a vehicle; identity theft; and tampering with physical evidence. Information received during his arrest, coupled with information at the residence, has led police to believe that the deceased persons are his parents, Paul Robert Taylor, 76 and Mary Jane “Jane” Taylor, 77.

Blinded by White Supremacy ~ 2017!
St. Louis, MO {PUBLISHED: Sept. 15, 2017 at 02:50 pm | UPDATED: Sept. 20, 2017 at 03:54 pm} -- The acquittal of white police officer Jason Stockley left many charging St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson with bias. Stockley killed a black man named Anthony Lamar Smith. Judge Timothy Wilson presided over a bench trial for killing. Critics are pointing to a key sentence from Wilson's ruling. “The Court observes, based on its nearly 30 years on the bench, that an urban heroin dealer not in possession of a firearm would be an anomaly.” Judge Wilson wrote this referring to a gun found in Smith’s car. The gun had Stockley's, not Smith's, DNA on it. Dashcam video that showed Stockley return to his squad car after shooting Smith has fueled a widespread theory that he planted the gun.

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.


(Published: Thurs., April 13, 2017) — On Monday, Nandi Cain Jr. had just gotten off work and was headed to his Sacramento apartment when he noticed an officer approaching from behind him with his hand on his gun, according to police accounts, videos of the event and local news reports. 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. 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)

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.

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.

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)

POSTED: Friday, September 30, 2011
UPDATED: 12:00 pm PDT October 5, 2011

LAUSDPD - STENRuSe!


May 16, 2011 10:26 a.m. PDT

Los Angeles, CA (WCJB) -- A Los Angeles police officer charged with staging a victimization hoax by shooting himself outside a public school pleaded not guilty Friday to a six-count indictment, prosecutors said. Jeff Stenroos, 30, entered the plea before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg after an indictment was returned a day earlier by a grand jury, said spokeswoman Jane Robison of the Los Angeles district attorney's office. Stenroos is on paid administrative leave from the school district, Robison said in a written statement. The indictment supersedes a felony complaint, which will be dismissed when Stenroos is scheduled to return to court on May 18 for a pretrial hearing, prosecutors said.



Stenroos (pictured above, center) allegedly faked his own shooting while on duty at El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills, California, on January 19, Robinson said. His injury was discovered by a person who saw him lying on the ground near his open car door, she said. Stenroos allegedly told other officers that a car burglary suspect shot him once in the chest as he was patrolling the campus perimeter, prosecutors said. More than 550 law enforcement officers from throughout Southern California responded and conducted a 10-hour search, shutting down an eight-square-mile area in the San Fernando Valley and keeping students on lockdown in eight campuses, authorities said.

The indictment charges the school police officer with five felony counts, including insurance fraud, workers' compensation fraud, preparing a false police report, preparing false documentary evidence and planting false evidence; and with one misdemeanor of falsely reporting an emergency, Deputy District Attorney Paul Nunez said in a statement. The superseding indictment adds two new counts -- insurance fraud and planting evidence -- and drops a prior charge of perjury, prosecutors said.

If convicted, the city is seeking $361,289 in restitution , and the Los Angeles Unified School District is seeking $58,000 in medical costs from Stenroos, prosecutors said. Stenroos, who was treated and released from Northridge Medical Center the day he was shot, is accused of insurance fraud for seeking medical treatment for the injuries, prosecutors said. Stenroos would also face up to five years and eight months in prison, Robison said.

The weekend after the shooting, Stenroos checked himself into Henry Mayo Hospital in Santa Clarita for ongoing complaints of pain, prosecutors said. Police investigators found that Stenroos allegedly created false evidence when he claimed he was shot, authorities said.

LAPD - Greenfield!


May 15, 2011

A recently resigned Los Angeles police detective, who enticed fellow cops and others to invest millions of dollars with her, has been arrested and charged with theft and securities fraud. Darcey Greenfield, 39, surrendered Wednesday to investigators from the San Bernardino County district attorney's real estate fraud unit after an arrest warrant was issued late last week, authorities said. Greenfield faces 10 felony charges, including the sale of false investment securities, the sale of securities without a license and grand theft. Greenfield pleaded not guilty to the charges Thursday, said Vance Welch, the deputy district attorney in charge of the real estate fraud unit. Her bail has been set at just over $1 million and she remains in custody at a detention center in Rancho Cucamonga, he said. Her attorney could not reached.

The fact that Greenfield was an LAPD cop heightened the importance of the case, Welch added. Greenfield and her real estate dealings were the subject of a Times article last year. Shortly after joining the LAPD in 1994, Greenfield told the media in an interview last year, she began investing in real estate. Those early purchases and sales of properties were personal deals, but soon evolved into a side business that involved soliciting investments from others. She made grandiose claims, telling investors they would receive double-digit returns within months, according to authorities and documents obtained by media sources.

The charges filed by San Bernardino County prosecutors stem from investments totaling $265,000 that Greenfield collected in 2008 from a husband and wife and another man who lived in that county, according to court filings. Greenfield is accused of violating state laws that establish the terms under which people can sell securities, such as real estate. One of the charges alleges that she illegally assured the investors that she would sell a piece of her own property to reimburse them if their deals went sour. Prosecutors also allege that Greenfield lied to the investors when she told them the properties in which she was investing their money were secured by official deeds of trust.

Greenfield told the investors their money would be used to help homeowners in foreclosure, according to the district attorney's office. The victims were promised they would get back a high rate of return and their principal, but they received nothing, authorities said.

Greenfield's reach extended far beyond the investors in the San Bernardino County criminal case. Over several months in 2007 and 2008, Greenfield told The Times, she collected about $2 million from investors. San Bernardino County officials put the total amount raised from Los Angeles County residents at $3 million.

At least 13 LAPD employees are known from Greenfield's court records to have invested with her, including four detectives and five supervising sergeants. Police officials say they suspect that the total was higher because officers were probably pooling their money and investing under a single name.

The money disappeared. Greenfield claimed she had been swindled by a man named Leroy Dowd. According to Greenfield, Dowd, the 70-year old bishop of a South Los Angeles church, had persuaded her to give him the cash she raised to help him catch up on late mortgage and tax payments on his church and several other properties. In exchange, she said, he promised he would repay her with hefty profits when the properties were sold or the mortgages refinanced.

Dowd was eventually arrested on unrelated fraud charges. He pleaded guilty to duping an elderly woman into signing over the deed to her Claremont house and selling it from beneath her, as well as stealing more than $40,000 from a bank in a check-kiting scam. Dowd was released from custody last year, and his whereabouts are unknown. San Bernardino County authorities said they were not currently investigating him.

Some of Greenfield's investors have questioned her claims that she was an unknowing victim of Dowd, saying they believe she was somehow involved in the scheme. It is a charge that Greenfield denied in an interview with The Times last year. Los Angeles police officials launched an investigation into Greenfield, but she resigned from the department earlier this year before disciplinary proceedings were completed.

LAPD officials did not return calls for comment.

At least three officers, including Greenfield, have declared bankruptcy as a result of the investments. Others went further into debt to pay back friends and relatives who gave them money to invest. The debacle has been an embarrassment for LAPD officials, who were left to ponder how officers trained to solve crimes ended up being taken so easily.

May 15, 2011

Outside the doors of the Down and Out, a divey downtown bar at the intersection of Spring and 5th streets, two very different worlds collide. There's the renovated world of upscale lofts, expensive coffee bars and artist studios. And then there's the world of day laborers waiting at bus stops, the mentally ill and homeless who wander up from skid row, and, most of all, drug dealers.

"Pills are that way," bartender Matt Blackwell said as he gestured toward 5th Street. "Crack is down the other way, and heroin down Spring. It's a lot better than it was 10 years ago, but there are still a lot of drugs on this block."

Longtime residents say the corner is far from paradise, but they note that the two worlds have managed to coexist somewhat peacefully. That is, until last week when an undercover police officer shot and killed a man who reportedly threatened him with a knife. The shooting occurred in midday, on a bustling street corner directly in front of the Down and Out's outdoor patio.

The shooting has left the tight-knit group of patrons and bartenders struggling to resolve their appreciation for the work the cops have done to clean up the neighborhood and their suspicions over whether the shooting could have been avoided.

Patrons of the bar, which adorns its walls with mug shots of the rich and famous, say they are not naive. They know who the dealers are and vice versa, but acts of violence are uncommon.

"I've lived around here for seven years and have never felt unsafe," said Kim Henderson, an artist.

Police officials have released a preliminary account of the shooting, based on the version of events given by the officer and his partner, neither of whom has been identified. On Tuesday afternoon around 12:20, the two detectives were approached by 51-year-old Dale Garrett, who police described as a transient and convicted felon with an extensive narcotics record. Garrett allegedly offered to sell one of the officers narcotics and, at some point during the encounter, threatened to kill the detective with a 7-inch folding saw. It is unclear whether the detective identified himself as a police officer or if Garrett tried to stab him. Police officials said the weapon was recovered.

Blackwell, who was feet away when the shooting occurred and watched Garrett die on the street, was quick to praise the LAPD for helping to transform the block from what he said had been lawless and violent, but expressed dismay at the killing.

"I don't know, you don't just shoot a man, handcuff him and let him bleed to death on the street," said Blackwell, who looked skeptical when told of the police account of the shooting.

Jeff Scott, 59, a musician who says he's at the bar "six out of seven nights" each week, didn't necessarily disagree, but took a more hardened view. "If you threaten a cop, they're gonna shoot you. That's just the way it is."

Blackwell, Scott and the others don't like the dealers and their lookouts, who spend days and nights skulking up and down the street. But they are a part of the bar's daily reality. That familiarity, mixed with some distrust toward the police, has made for more than a little concern since the shooting.

"I know all the crooks' names and faces, but I don't know the cops," Henderson said. "I want the cops to get out of their cars and start walking around. Get to know the people who live here."


Brian Smith


Killer Cop



A former Utah state trooper suspected in a series of roadway shootings earlier this week died on Christmas Eve, a hospital official said. Dallas police said they believe Brian Smith, above, killed at least one of the victims in a series of apparent random rush-hour shootings near Dallas. Smith shot and injured himself after a standoff with police.

Smith, the former Utah state trooper suspected in several Dallas-area roadway shootings that killed at least Two motorists died on Christmas Eve [Deceber 24, 2008], a hospital official said. Smith's death was the result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.




The 37-year-old had been in critical condition on life support from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Police say he shot himself in the head after a brief standoff early Tuesday, more than six hours after the roadway shooting spree ended.Warrants for Smith's arrest had been issued in the Fort Worth suburb of Southlake, where authorities have obtained evidence linking him to two robberies in the past eight days.

The Garland shooting Monday happened at a major intersection, when a driver pulled up alongside a small Nissan and shot and killed the Nissan's driver, 20-year-old Jorge "George" Lopez of Rowlett, said Garland police spokesman Joe Harn. Three semitrailer drivers were later shot at on Interstate 635, and one of those three died. William Scott Miller, a 42-year-old married father of two from Frankfort, Ky., was on his way to get on a plane to go home to his family for the holidays.
