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)

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.

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.

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)

Capt. Edward I. Poulson, OPD, Killer Cop

January 23, 2009

Oakland, CA (WCJB)
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.

Birmingham PD!

April 2, 2011

Birmingham, Alabama -- a city with a long history of racial strife -- has been shaken by the release this week of a video recording showing a group of white police officers hitting an African-American man accused of attempting to steal a car. Travarious Daniel, 29, was arrested outside a nightclub in downtown Birmingham shortly after 1 a.m. on March 20. Video of the arrest shows Daniel, his hands raised in the air, briefly staggering down a sidewalk before being tackled and struck multiple times in the back of the head. A photo published by the Birmingham News shows Daniel with a bandage over a swollen eye after his arrest. Two officers have been placed on paid administrative leave pending the result of an internal investigation, according to an attorney for the local Fraternal Order of Police.

Calls to the Birmingham's police department were not immediately returned Friday.

Daniel (pictured left) has been charged with unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle and receiving stolen property. But it is the allegation of police brutality that is drawing attention. Daniel's attorney said the video, which he released to the media, came from the nightclub's security camera. Daniel works at the club and obtained the video. "A group of white policemen and my client is a black victim. Do the math," said Daniel's attorney. "It's very sad that this is being cast as a racial matter," the polices' attorney replied. "The police department is color-blind (she's kidding). This is not a racial matter. Not at all."

Birmingham Mayor William Bell -- himself an African-American -- is withholding judgment until the results of an internal investigation. "The mayor is very disturbed at the video and the images," said Chuck Faush, Bell's chief of staff. But "there is due process and we will wait to find out the facts." Faush told media sources the city had been examining the possibility of increased mandatory training on issues related to law enforcement and race before Daniel's arrest. The city has also been reaching out to local faith-based and other civic leaders to encourage closer ties. "This heightens what we're trying to do," he said. A police attorney called the mayor "reasonable" and said the police welcome the idea of increased training. But Bell "does not have a law enforcement background," she noted. The video showing Daniel being hit doesn't tell the whole story, she said. She noted that the officers were initially forced to chase Daniel -- who has prior felony convictions -- and that in dealing with a suspect, holding the hands in the air can sometimes be interpreted as an act of defiance. Most people "see the gentleman with his hands in the air and they think he's giving up," she said. But defendants are told to drop to the ground, and "if you resist, there will be action taken by the police." "They used only the force necessary to (ensure) an arrest," she asserted. Daniel's attorney dismissed the police attorney's claim. "We have a defense to this, and they know we do," he said. The video is "clear evidence there are some bad apples in the police department." Daniel's attorney said Daniel intends to file a lawsuit against the police department. Daniel's first court hearing on the car theft charge is scheduled for April 11. Birmingham, Alabama's largest city, was the center of the civil rights movement that reverberated through the United States and beyond in the 1950s and 1960s. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested in the city for taking part in a peaceful demonstration, and penned the now-famous "Letter from Birmingham Jail," an open letter in which he spelled out his justifications for civil disobedience: "... one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." The city also suffered the scars of racially motivated bombings during those turbulent years, most notably a blast at the 16th Street Baptist Church that killed four black girls in 1963. The Civil Rights Act, which outlawed racial segregation, was signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson the following year. Still, Birmingham has worked hard to rebuild its infrastructure and its image. In recent years, it has adopted "The Diverse City" moniker, "recognizing the city's undeniable civil rights heritage while promoting its diversified destinations" as the Birmingham Business Journal once put it. The mayor's office declined to discuss the possible broader racial ramifications of the case. Bell, the mayor, plans to be in Atlanta on Monday as one of the recipients of an award from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. The "Keeper of the Dream" award -- an allusion to King's historic "I Have a Dream" speech -- is given to those who work toward improving equality and justice. In Birmingham, "we embrace our past, but we only use it to build our future," Faush said.

Recent History!

May 20, 2009
Five Birmingham police officers have been fired for a January 2008 beating of an already-unconscious suspect with fists, feet and a billy club, a battering caught on videotape until a police officer turned off the patrol car camera, city and police officials said today. The suspect, Anthony Warren, didn't even know he'd been beaten until the tape surfaced at his trial in March. Warren was ejected from the vehicle and knocked unconscious, and thought all of his injuries were sustained in the wreck. Police Chief A.C. Roper called the video "shameful." Mayor Larry Langford said it was "disgusting." Roper said the video shamed the police department and the citizens served by the department, saying it was especially troubling because these were seasoned, veteran officers. Roper hasn't identified the officers. Four of them worked in the department's Vice and Narcotics Unit; the fifth was a North Precinct patrolman.

"The cops beat the crap out of me."

Capt. Edward I. Poulson, OPD

OAKLAND — Oakland police Capt. Edward Poulson, who was placed on administrative leave in January after the FBI opened an investigation into his possible role in the death of a drug suspect in 2000, returned to work this week even as the FBI investigation continues. Poulson was head of the department's Internal Affairs Division when he was put on leave, and former Chief Wayne Tucker's decision to place him atop that unit drew sharp criticism because of Poulson's involvement in the 2000 incident and subsequent findings that he interfered with the investigation of it. Poulson (pictured right) will be handling administrative projects for the department, at least until the FBI investigation of 35-year-old Jerry Amaro's death is complete, the department said. [O]ne of Poulson's attorneys, said the decision to bring him back to work is confirmation "there is no basis to the allegation Capt. Poulson was guilty of any misconduct leading to the death of Mr. Amaro (or it could be a continuation of the corruption at the Oakland Police Department)." According to Officer Jeff Thomason, the department's spokesman, Poulson, who has been getting paid his annual salary of about $148,000 a year since he was placed on leave, was returned to duty by Chief Anthony Batts "because there is work he could be doing for the department." Thomason also said that the department already has disciplined Poulson once for the incident and that the only way the captain would face further discipline is if he is convicted in federal court. FBI Special Agent Joe Schadler said he could not comment on the FBI's activity with respect to the 2000 incident. But it is known that police officers involved in it have been interviewed by the FBI and also are giving depositions in a $10 million civil rights lawsuit filed by Amaro's family this year. Poulson was a patrol lieutenant overseeing a drug sting in 2000 when Amaro was arrested on suspicion of attempting to buy drugs from an undercover officer. The family's lawsuit alleges that police used excessive force during the arrest that may have included kicking and punching Amaro while he was on the ground. Amaro suffered five broken ribs, a lacerated lung and other injuries. He died April 21, 2000, of pneumonia caused by fractured ribs and a collapsed lung. The lawsuit names Poulson and seven other officers who, according to allegations, either used excessive force, failed to stop it or conspired to conceal what happened. An outside attorney subsequently wrote in a confidential memo to city officials that there was "strong circumstantial evidence" that police covered up what really happened in the 2000 incident. The Alameda County District Attorney's Office reviewed the case but declined to bring any charges. Poulson faced possible termination but instead was suspended for two weeks without pay for interfering with the department's Internal Affairs investigation. The family's lawsuit claims Amaro was denied medical help.
UPDATE - 1-29-09
There is "strong circumstantial evidence" that police covered up the 2000 beating of drug suspect Jerry Amaro III, who died a month after suffering broken ribs, according to confidential city documents obtained late Wednesday. Two other people also arrested in the same drug sting and put in a police car with Amaro later told investigators Amaro was "complaining constantly that he was in pain, and wanted to see a doctor and that (he) was sweating profusely, consistent with a painful injury," the document states. Amaro was denied immediate medical care. Poulson is suspected of kicking Amaro and then ordering subordinate officers to lie about it. Administrative charges against Poulson were sustained for interfering in an internal affairs investigation. Then-Chief Richard Word changed a recommendation to fire Poulson to a two-week suspension. Last year, Chief Wayne Tucker put Poulson in charge of Internal Affairs. In announcing his resignation Tuesday, hours before City Council members were scheduled to call for a no-confidence vote on him, partly because of the Poulson matter, Tucker said he would have fired Poulson if he had been given the same choice as Word. But Tucker also described Poulson as his best choice last year to head Internal Affairs. A separate confidential document City Attorney John Russo wrote to City Council members in 2005 stated that Poulson was "permitted to issue directives concerning the investigation to the other officers who were being investigated even though he was (the) subject of the investigation." Russo declined to comment on the document Wednesday, saying "it speaks for itself." Poulson, who has not commented since his suspension a week ago, could not be reached. Laura Stevens, an outside attorney who investigated the matter for Russo's office, found deep flaws in the Internal Affairs investigation of the cover-up and the homicide-unit probe of Amaro's death. "No mention of Amaro's alleged resistance to arrest or the alleged need to use force on him were contained in the police records of his arrest," Stevens wrote. She also noted that officers about to be interviewed by homicide detectives met together before the interviews, and then all told detectives they saw no one use force on Amaro. Russo wrote in a companion memo: "The interviews conducted by internal affairs were exceedingly shallow: inconsistencies were not explored, the inability to recall details was not probed and the questioning seemed to offer excuses to officers." Stevens questioned how Word handled the matter. Word ordered that discrepancies in some officers' statements "not be held against" them, she wrote. She added emphasis to the word "not" in that sentence and wrote, "Frankly, I am mystified by the statement." Word has declined to discuss the matter, citing the confidentiality of internal police documents. Capt. Edward I. Poulson, (pictured above right) who heads Internal Affairs, was suspended with pay by the department [January 22, 2009]. "The cops beat the crap out of me." That's what Jerry Amaro III told family members almost nine years ago. Police documents obtained by the Chauncey Bailey Project state that Amaro complained of injuries at both the then-Oakland City Jail, where he was held for three days, and Alameda's Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, where he was held for one day. They don't state whether he was treated. "He said no one would help him in jail[.]" Amaro died alone in a friend's basement on April 21, 2000, of pneumonia and complications from pneumonia and a punctured lung caused by five broken ribs.
January 23, 2009
The FBI is investigating allegations that [Poulson] head of the Oakland Police Department's Internal Affairs Division almost nine years ago beat [Jerry Amaro III] who later died, and then ordered subordinate officers to lie about it. Poulson, of Danville, did not return messages. Police Chief Wayne Tucker refused requests for an interview. In a written statement released [January 22, 2009], Tucker said the department was cooperating with the FBI. The FBI is investigating allegations that Poulson, working with an undercover team in April 2000, kicked a drug suspect, breaking his ribs, the sources said. The suspect, Jerry Amaro, died about a month later of pneumonia caused by broken ribs and a collapsed lung, according to a coroner's report. Before Amaro died, he told several people about the incident, according to police reports. Internal Affairs investigators at the time found that Poulson ordered subordinate officers to lie about his involvement, and those investigators called for his firing, according to the sources. Then-Chief Richard Word (Chief of Vacaville Police Department) instead suspended Poulson for two weeks. No charges were brought in Amaro's death after a homicide investigation, the sources said. Officers with knowledge of the matter said colleagues were angry that a member of the command staff who had been punished for interfering in an Internal Affairs investigation was later put in charge of Internal Affairs, and they alerted the FBI.
Two police officers, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Thursday that FBI agents have interviewed them in recent days about Amaro's arrest and death, and a raft of other incidents that include: • The department's handling of Bailey's Aug. 2, 2007, slaying, for which police arrested only one person on murder charges. The Chauncey Bailey Project reported in October that the lead detective in the case, Sgt. Derwin Longmire, failed to document in his case notes evidence of a conspiracy pointing to former Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV's involvement in the killing. • The recent scandal involving the falsification of search warrants. Department leaders last week notified 11 officers of their intention to fire them. Another officer was fired last month. • A whistle-blower complaint that police Lt. Lawrence Green filed last month alleging that Tucker squashed a rank-and-file vote of no confidence in his administration by promoting then-police union president, Officer Robert Valladon, to "acting sergeant," a move that increased Valladon's pay and boosted his eligibility for a higher pension. • Allegations that former City Administrator Deborah Edgerly last year leaked news of a pending drug raid to a nephew who was a gang member. • The conduct of Deputy Police Chief Jeffrey Loman, who is accused of sexually harassing a subordinate female officer and also is being investigated for his supervision of Longmire's work in the Bailey case. The FBI probe comes nearly three months after Dellums requested the state Justice Department conduct a parallel investigation of an internal affairs probe of how the Bailey case was handled.
