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.

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)

Memphis Police

April 20, 2009

For a month between early March and April, the Memphis Police Department's Organized Crime Unit conducted "Operation Clean Sweep" in the always murky waters of street level drug sales and prostitution. But, among the hundreds of arrests made, what was criminally dredged up on four of their own "men in blue" visibly turned the stomach of MPD Chief, Larry Godwin at a Monday [4/20/09] news conference to announce resulting indictments.

Four Memphis police officers have been indicted in an undercover prostitution and drug investigation. The indictments, which were announced April 20, 2009, resulted from an investigation conducted by the Memphis Police Department’s Organized Crime Unit and Internal Affairs Bureau.

Those indicted were:

James George

James George, 52, (pictured right) on charges of aggravated kidnapping, rape, two counts of official misconduct, and official oppression. A second indictment charges him with aggravated kidnapping, rape, two counts of official misconduct, and official oppression. A third indictment includes charges of aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping, sexual battery by an authority figure, official misconduct and official oppression.

James George, 52, an officer since April 1996, most recently assigned to the Mt. Moriah Station as a patrolman, resigned April 9, 2009. He has been charged in three indictments for offenses alleged to have occurred within the past year: taking a 40-year-old prostitute off the street against her will and raping her; kidnapping another prostitute and raping her on Nov. 28, 2008; and kidnapping and raping an underage girl on Sept. 25, 2008, with Daniel Wallace.

Daniel Wallace

Daniel Wallace, 44, (pictured left) on charges of aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping, sexual battery by an authority figure, official misconduct and official oppression.

Wallace, 44, an officer since December 2003, most recently assigned to the Mt. Moriah Station, resigned April 9, 2009. He is accused of taking part with George in the alleged kidnapping and rape of an underage girl on Sept. 25, 2008.

Thomas Woods

Thomas Woods, 54, (pictured right) for aggravated kidnapping, rape, two counts of official misconduct and official oppression.

Thomas Woods, 54, an officer since 1998, assigned as a patrolman in the Mt. Moriah Station, resigned April 9, 2009. He is accused of kidnapping and raping a prostitute sometime in 2008.

Larry Orange

June 17, 2010Update!

A former Memphis police officer has been placed on diversion for a year for paying to have sex with a 17-year-old girl. Larry Orange, 45, pleaded guilty this week in Criminal Court to statutory rape and official misconduct stemming from the incident in the summer of 2008. If he avoids any new arrests and meets other conditions of the court, Orange's record will be cleared on June 16, [2011], according to the sentence issued by Judge John Colton Jr. He was one of several Memphis police officers charged with having sex with prostitutes, but unlike the others, Orange was not on duty at the time and there was no coercion or intimidation involved, state prosecutor Paul Hagerman said. He said the officer met the woman while on duty, got her phone number and later paid her for sex after his shift was over. Orange, who had been a police officer for some 15 years, was issued a three-day suspension in 1996 for being outside his precinct without permission after he and another officer were spotted at a Whitehaven motel. The officers said they were checking on a prostitute with outstanding warrants.

Larry Orange, 44, (pictured left) for sexual battery by an authority figure, aggravated statutory rape and official misconduct.

Larry Orange, 44, an officer since January 1994, most recently assigned to the police department's DUI unit, is on nonenforcement status pending an administrative hearing. He is accused of aggravated statutory rape and sexual battery of an underage girl in August or September 2008.

The indictments stemmed from an OCU investigation of prostitution and drug sales. Some of the information that led to the indictments came from the prostitute/victims, according to grand jury indictments.

Police Director Larry Godwin in announcing the indictments said that corrupt officersare no different from any other thugs,” and vowed to continue to root out crooked cops. Godwin, under heavy urging from the Memphis City Council to hire more police officers, noted three of the officers arrested in "Clean Sweep" were brought onto the force in earlier years when his former predecessors were also under fire to get more bodies on the street - despite the questionable pasts of some applicants. A laxness Godwin says he's tried to curb since he took command.

“We will rid our department of thugs who want to wear the blue,” he said.
Godwin said three of the four officers were hired during the mid- and late 1990s, when the department was granting waivers to some recruits with arrest records in an attempt to increase the complement of police by several hundred. Godwin said he has discontinued the practice of granting waivers, with rare exceptions. “I am cautious about who I give waivers to,” he said.

The indictments leveled against former officers James George, Daniel Wallace along with Thomas Woods and Larry Orange seemed to undercut the dozens of other arrests which should have highlighted a successful undercover operation: the arrests of 78 for prostitution with a total of 235 taken into custody overall. But, even among those numbers, another former department "bad apple" reappeared during one of the raids in the Midtown area.

"I will tell you involved the arrest of one former Memphis Police officer also by the name of Quinton Cooper. He was terminated in April 2003."

Godwin said the investigation continues, and that he may refer the case to the U.S. Attorney’s office for possible federal prosecution. “These are very serious, violent charges against individuals sworn to protect the public and uphold the law. It is both disappointing and disturbing when any police officer abuses his power in this manner,” said Dist. Atty. Gen. Bill Gibbons in a statement.

The officers were arrested Friday, April 17, 2009. George is free on $50,000 bond; Wallace and Woods are free on $25,000 bonds; and Orange is free on $10,000 bond.

Medina police

April 13, 2009

Issaquah police are investigating whether a Medina [, Washington] police officer raped a woman he arrested during a traffic stop late last year. The 30-year-old officer is being investigated for third-degree rape and official misconduct, according to a search warrant for his mobile phone records. Issaquah police interviewed the woman last month and obtained the warrant April 2, 2009. The alleged assault occurred at the officer’s Issaquah Highlands home, according to court documents. The officer asked the woman on a date and took her to his home several days after the traffic stop on state Route 520. He had cited her for driving with a suspended license and possession of a small amount of marijuana. He told her he could have the charges against her dismissed, according to court documents.

He later sent three e-mails to city prosecutors asking for the case to be dismissed due to a lack of evidence. Court documents said he sent an e-mail to prosecutors in December that said, “In almost four years, I don’t think I’ve ever asked you guys to dismiss charges and I don’t plan on making a habit of it, but can we dismiss the charges in this case? I wouldn’t even feel right going to court in testifying in this case.”

The incident came to the attention of police last month during another sexual assault investigation. The woman told police her boyfriend had assaulted her. A King County Sheriff’s Office detective overheard the boyfriend say on the phone that the woman “didn’t report the cop for raping her.” When the detective asked the woman about the earlier incident, she recounted the traffic stop and the date with the Medina officer. The detective then handed the case off to Issaquah police, because the woman said the incident occurred in the highlands. The investigation is ongoing; police have not arrested anyone. They are withholding the officer’s name (and photo) because he has not been charged with a crime. The case involving the Medina officer has not been referred to the King County Prosecutor’s Office, spokesman Dan Donohoe said.

After Issaquah officers told him about the investigation, Medina Police Chief Jeff Chen said he “immediately placed the officer on paid administrative leave.”

According to the warrant, the woman said the officer stopped her Nov. 23, 2008. He handcuffed her and put her in the back of his patrol car. He then searched her vehicle and discovered a small bag of what he suspected was marijuana. When he completed the search, he returned to his patrol car. He adjusted her scarf and “put his hand on her.” He also told the woman “she was attractive and beautiful.” She told him she had paid the ticket for the suspended license charge. She then told him she did not want to be charged for the marijuana. He told her not to worry because the charge would go away. He cited and released her.

He called her the next morning and asked to meet at Joker Pub & Grill, 5614 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E. He told the woman he would show her a letter to prosecutors about dismissing the charges. She met him several days later. He told her he was attracted to her and invited her to his home in the highlands. She agreed, but told him she would not have sex with him on the first date.

At his home, he poured a drink for her and told her people are scared of police officers because “they have power and authority, and a gun and a badge.” He then put his gun on a table; the woman told police she felt the officer was trying to intimidate her with the gesture. He offered her a tour of his home. When they reached the bedroom, he pushed her onto the bed, held her hands above her head and straddled her. She told him she did not want to have sex, and he replied, “You don’t really mean that.” He then raped her.

She told police she contacted the officer each time she went to court. She asked when the charges would be dismissed. The officer called her phone nine times between Nov. 24, 2009 and Feb. 9, 2009 according to the warrant. Charges against the woman were dropped Feb. 9, 2009 due to issues with the evidence. The officer said he did not send the evidence to the Washington State Patrol Crime Laboratory because there was not enough of the suspected marijuana to test, according to the warrant.

The warrant said the officer sent an e-mail to the Medina evidence custodian Dec. 9, 2009 that said, “I talked to the prosecutor and they’re going to drop the marijuana part of the case, so it doesn’t need to get tested.” Issaquah police obtained the suspected marijuana that was part of the assault investigation. Investigators said the substance tested positive as marijuana, according to the warrant.

Investigators are waiting for phone records to be released before they pursue charges.

"Right now, the investigation surrounds an allegation of rape and official misconduct," said Issaquah Deputy Chief Steve Cozart. "A crime is a crime. We investigate it regardless of who the allegations are against."

Steve Drummer

February 19, 2009

A nine-year veteran of the Birmingham Police Department has been arrested. In a news release from the BPD, Steve Drummer, 44, of Birmingham, Alabama faces a Sodomy 1st Degree warrant, and a Sexual Abuse warrant. Drummer was identified in connection with the sexual assault of a 20 year old female victim, which occurred on Sunday, February 15, 2009, about 10 p.m. in Birmingham. Drummer was on duty during the alleged incident.The 20-year-old female victim filed the charges against the officer.

According to a Birmingham police news release, a 20-year-old woman reported being sexually assaulted close to 10 p.m. Sunday in western Birmingham. Drummer (pictured right) was assigned to the West Precinct and worked the 3 to 11 p.m. shift.

Drummer’s employment with the BPD was terminated as of Thursday, February 19, 2009. Bond totals $70,000. Drummer was taken to the Jefferson County Jail.

With sexual harassment already a significant problem in the workplace, it is intolerable to think that citizens are subject to this form of assault from those who are sworn to serve and protect us from such victimization. This goes beyond police misconduct and municipal liability, violating not just citizens’ rights, safety and well-being, but also their trust and support for civil service agencies.
