High-quality surveillance video of gunmen shooting up a crowded Philadelphia bus comes from a camera that was only recently installed. And the prosecutor in the trial of four suspects in the case says the video takes things to a "whole new level." It was, remarks a News Correspondent, like a scene from the Wild West, but with a modern twist - the video.
According to prosecutors, Penny Chapman (pictured above, center) seen in the video -- boarded the bus with her young on June 18, and can be seen in the video spanking him, for running through the aisles. A male rider intervened, saying he would report her to child services. Chapman is then seen making a phone call and, minutes later, two gunmen in white shirts are outside the bus. Investigators say she called the suspects to come and shoot the man who threatened her.
Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney Morgan Model Vedejs told reporters, "You can see where the shots actually hit was exactly where people were standing and sitting, had they not moved." All three men and Chapman are facing attempted murder, assault and firearms charges, Vedejs said.
"The video shows one shot does actually get off before the back doors close," Vedejs told Cordes, "but by then, the driver of the bus takes off, full speed ahead toward Temple Hospital, and the passengers had the wherewithal to separate quickly to the front and back."
Vedejs called it an "absolutely horrific scene. And we are extremely lucky that (the Philadelphia transit system) has such a fabulous surveillance system that we're able to see it.

PORTLAND, Ore. – A man accused of stabbing his pregnant wife over the weekend pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder, assault and strangulation during his first court appearance Monday. Brian Nickel, 33, cried in court and his left arm was bandaged. Neighbors said he tried to hurt himself after police said he attacked his wife, 32-year-old Elaine Winn. Nickel waved to family sitting in the courtroom as he left. They did not want to comment after leaving court.
Neighbors said they heard Nickel's wife screaming and then saw her running from her Southeast Portland home Saturday afternoon before she collapsed, bleeding in her neighbor's driveway. They said she had been stabbed at least two times in the leg and stomach. They said she explained it was her husband who had just stabbed her.
Neighbor Becky Schaefer and another Good Samaritan tried to help Winn while they waited for an ambulance. "She was applying pressure to the belly and the thigh," Schaefer said in an interview over the weekend. "But she thought the belly wound wasn't as bad but the thigh was. And then all of her fingers on one hand looked like they were cut." Both husband and wife were taken to the hospital. Winn is three months pregnant but both her and her unborn child are said to be OK. She should be released from the hospital in the next few days.
Winn's father said Nickel has been taking medication for anxiety problems and it was an unprescribed medication that drove Nickel to violently attack his wife.
Portland police's Domestic Violence Reduction Unit continues to investigate what specific medication Nickel may have been taking and what prompted the attack. Police said it is one of the most brutal domestic violence cases they've seen. "For us, anytime that it's a husband and wife and there's this sort of violence, it is shocking," said Lt. Robert King, spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau. "For all of us, especially so, when it's a pregnant woman. It's not just about the dispute between the couple but there’s a child at risk too. Yes, I think this has been a particularly difficult and shocking case for those who have been investigating it."
Nickel is expected in court again July 26.
A Florida Family Again!
Florida (WCJB) -- A Florida teen bludgeoned his parents to death with a hammer, stashed their bodies in a bedroom, then hosted dozens of people for a house party, police said Monday. Tyler Hadley, 17, is in police custody, booked just before 5 p.m. Monday on two counts of second-degree murder with a weapon, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff's website. Port St. Lucie Police spokesman Tom Nichols told reporters earlier that the teenage boy, who will be tried as an adult, was denied bond.
Around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Port St. Lucie Police Capt. Don Kryak said Hadley posted an invitation on Facebook, inviting friends to a party at his house. Sometime after that, police said he used a 22-ounce framing hammer to fatally beat his parents -- Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley -- in the head and torso outside their master bedroom door of their Port St. Lucie home. He then dragged them inside the room and used "books, files, towels, anything that he could find inside the home to cover the bodies," Nichols said.
Then the teenager proceeded to party. Between 40 and 60 people turned up sometime after 9 p.m., according to police. Nichols said that "during the party and after the party, there was a rumor that perhaps Tyler had killed his parents." But, while saying police wanted to talk to more partygoers, he did not indicate if anyone else saw the dead couple's bodies locked in the master bedroom.
Police became involved after getting an anonymous tip, which led them to conduct a welfare check at the house around 4:20 a.m. Sunday. Kryak said Tyler Hadley appeared "nervous" when law enforcement officers arrived, telling them his parents were out of town. They eventually found the alleged murder weapon lying between his parents' bodies.
"The crime scene was certainly a merciless killing," the police captain said. "It was brutal." Autopsies are being conducted on Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley, though police repeated that they believe both died from "blunt force trauma."
Tyler Hadley had dropped out of St. Lucie Centennial West High School and later took classes at Indian River State College, Kryak said.
Nichols said police do not know why the teen, who has made "no incriminating statements," may have killed his parents. There are no plans to charge anyone else in connection with the pair's deaths.
"I've known Mary-Jo since she was in high school in Fort Lauderdale," Charlene Moses, a family friend, told CNN-affiliate WPTV. "They are a nice family. The kids are always nice."
A Short Life!
July 18, 2011
TUMWATER, Wash. -- Police discovered a 6-year-old boy dead in a home Tuesday after authorities say his parents were found dead in a car following a high-speed chase. The boy was found with a plastic bag over his head when investigators went to the couple’s Spanaway home to check on him and his 10-year-old sister. The girl was later found safe with her biological father in Redmond, Ore., said Ed Troyer, a Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman.
Washington State Patrol troopers said the 38-year-old man in the car was fleeing from a trooper. He shot himself in the head after his car spun out on Interstate 5 at Tumwater, about 60 miles south of Seattle. Troopers also found the body of a 38-year-old woman in the car. The state patrol initially reported the woman appeared to be emaciated and that she had not been shot.
Thurston County Coroner Gary Warnock later said she had been shot once in the head. It was not clear when she was shot, but Troyer said authorities believe the man shot her. "It was definitely a recent gunshot wound," Warnock said. "Was she shot at her residence in Spanaway or during the chase? That’s something we don’t know."

Millionaire Jonah Shacknai, already grieving for his girlfriend who was found hanged in his California mansion last week, has said that his young son has died from injuries suffered in the mansion. Max Shacknai, 6, was injured at the historic Spreckels mansion in Coronado, Calif., last Monday. He was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries and his death was announced Sunday.
Two days after Max was injured, Jonah Shacknai's girlfriend Rebecca Zahau was found dead, hanging naked from a balcony at the mansion. Police are investigating whether Zahau's death was a murder or a suicide. During a press conference last week San Diego Sheriff spokesman Tim Curran said the crime scene appeared "suspicious."
"Like Father, Like Son!"
December 30, 2010
The State Attorney's Office in Florida is investigating an incident in which a person identified as a police lieutenant's son is shown on videotape punching a man described as homeless, authorities said. A police report said the incident took place early on December 4, 2010. But Justin Collison, the son of a Sanford, Florida, police lieutenant, has not been arrested or charged, media affilates reported Tuesday. However, Sanford Police Chief Brian Tooley told the media on Thursday that authorities obtained an arrest warrant for Collison on Wednesday night on suspicion of aggravated battery, and that "officers are out looking for him."
"I'm hoping he'll come and turn himself in," Tooley said. "But we'll apprehend him."
WFTV aired video of the fight, in which the person identified as Collison is seen punching the man -- who apparently was attempting to break up an unrelated fight outside a bar -- in the back of the head. The man appeared to be unconscious for at least several minutes after the blow, according to the video.
Sanford police had said that Collison, 21, was not being given preferential treatment. Tooley acknowledged Thursday, however, that "there's a lot of things that could have been done better," and said an internal investigation is under way. Repeated attempts by the media to contact Collison and his father were unsuccessful Thursday.
On the tape, the person identified as Collison strikes the man in the back of the head, then walks a short distance and pushes a second man, throwing him to the ground as others shout for "Justin" to stop. The second man left the scene before police arrived, according to the police report.
"I was like, 'God, this guy, he's got to go to jail,'" the man who filmed the incident told WFTV. He did not want to be identified. "You can't walk around doing that kind of stuff."
The first man, identified in the police report as Sherman L. Ware, was described by others on the video as homeless. He fell forward upon being struck and hit his face on a pole, according to the police report. Ware was treated at a hospital for a broken nose, but the police report described him as intoxicated and uncooperative, saying he did not want to provide a sworn statement. In addition, witness accounts of the incident were conflicting, the report said.
Tooley said officers did obtain a statement from Ware on Wednesday night.
Tooley said once the responding officers realized a lieutenant's son was involved, the captain on duty should have been called, and Tooley said he should have been notified as well.
"What should have made a difference, in my opinion, is that this was in fact the son of a lieutenant," he said. "They should have made sure they did everything exactly by the book."
Authorities have asked the State Attorney's Office for Brevard and Seminole counties to review the incident and assess whether charges should be filed. "This case will be forwarded to the SAO for further evaluation for investigation and prosecution," the police report says.
The investigation is under way, Lynne Bumpus-Hooper, spokeswoman for the state attorney's office, said Thursday. The length of the investigation is "well within the realm of normal," she added, saying such probes can take anywhere from two weeks to three months. The speed of the investigation has much to do with a public safety threat, she said; if someone is a threat, the investigation will be rushed.
An interview between the prosecutor and the victim is scheduled to take place next week, she said, and no decision on charges will be made until after that interview takes place. "Part of the issue we face is evaluating the degree of damage, harm to the victim, because that determines the charge filed," Bumpus-Hooper said.
Prosecutors said they also intend to subpoena medical records and hope to get the victim's consent to obtain them, which speeds the process. "There is a lot of information we need," Bumpus-Hooper said.
Tooley said he spoke to the state attorney and the chief assistant state attorney on Wednesday and "they agreed to expedite this process."
He said he was not aware of the incident -- and the fact it involved a lieutenant's son -- until four days after it happened. He said he saw the video for the first time on television news.
"I completely understand the public's frustration, outrage," he said. "It's a shocking video ... I wish I would have seen the video two or three weeks earlier."
Responding officers arriving at a barroom brawl incident are frequently unable to sort out what happened, and call in the State Attorney's Office to investigate, Bumpus-Hooper said. Police requested the incident be investigated as an aggravated battery, she noted, a serious charge.
Whether a person is a law enforcement officer's relative "makes absolutely no difference to this office," said Bumpus-Hooper. She said the office has investigated relatives of police officers before and currently has cases pending against law enforcement officers.
On whether the video will help the investigation, Bumpus-Hooper said she hasn't asked the state's attorney, but "generally the more evidence you have, the better off you are." She said authorities would also be interested in knowing what happened before the tape started and what took place inside the club.
Tooley said the incident has not affected Collison's father's employment status.
Rockford Update! Shooting Justified!
December 24, 2009
A grand jury ruled Wednesday that the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man by two white police officers at a daycare facility filled with children was justified, an official said. The Aug. 24 killing of 23-year-old Mark Anthony Barmore (pictured above) at the church-run facility in Rockford triggered protests and widened the racial divide in Illinois' second-largest city. Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato said late Wednesday that a grand jury ruled earlier that day that the shooting of Barmore was justified, and said he agreed with that assessment. Illinois State Police came to a similar conclusion in their investigation. Norma Joseph, president of the Rockford Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said she was appalled by Wednesday's ruling. "The NAACP is shocked and outraged by the Illinois State Police finding that the Rockford Police acted properly in shooting and killing Mark Barmore, who was unarmed," Joseph said in a statement.
Officers shot and killed Barmore inside the daycare at Kingdom Authority International Ministries Church after a struggle over a gun. Witnesses, including children, said Barmore had surrendered.
In the weeks following the shooting, thousands attended rallies -- some protesting that the shooting had been racially charged, others to support the police officers who were put on paid administrative leave -- and U.S. Department of Justice mediators were dispatched to the city about 90 miles northwest of Chicago to ease the unrest. "We are seeking accountability for the law enforcement officers' actions," said attorney Don Jackson, president of the Illinois State NAACP. "In only five years of service, one of the officers has been involved in four shootings, two of which resulted in fatalities."

--Springfield's Mayor Bart Fraenkel on Chief Chisholm's leadership.
On August 26, 2009, Union County Superior Court Judge Kathryn A. Brock issued a 40-page decision that dismissed the majority of the claims that Springfield Police Officer Walter Brooks' brought in his 2007 civil lawsuit against Police Chief William Chisholm and Springfield Township. Chisholm was appointed chief in 1986.

SPRINGFIELD -- In a rare move, members of Springfield's local Police Benevolent's Association No. 76 aired their grievances with the township police chief today by overwhelmingly approving a vote of no confidence. Of the 38 votes by PBA members in the Springfield Police Department, 34 said that they had no confidence in Chief William Chisholm, citing a lack of communication, support and leadership as the driving factors. The vote serves as a public disapproval of Chisholm's job performance. The 41-member department suffers from insufficient training, resources and dialogue, according to local PBA president Jim Morton. Morton said he would like to point to a particular catalyst for the vote, but said "It's 20 years of frustration that's been building." Such no confidence votes are uncommon, according to Mitchell C. Sklar, executive director of the state Association of Chiefs of Police. "They're fairly rare," said Sklar. "And they really have no impact and no effect."
Morton said by phone today that during Chisholm's 23-year tenure there has never been a department-wide meeting. "We've never been sat down and explained what the goals are," said Morton. The result, according to Morton, has been poor working conditions. A study conducted in 2000 reported similar problems.
Springfield officers told an independent consulting firm from Virginia that they could not talk to their chief, had too little training and received no recognition for good work. "Basically, we're summarily dismissed at every turn," said Morton, who has served in the department for 10 years. The no confidence vote was a last resort, according to Morton. He said he hopes the vote brings some type of change in the department. "These aren't new issues," he said. Sklar, the police chief's association director, said, in general, chiefs have to make decisions that may sometimes anger the rank-and-file members. "That's just the nature of being management," he said.
October 8, 2009
The meandering Rock River divides the town largely along racial lines — whites on the east and blacks on the west, where aging and shuttered buildings line streets. Mark Anthony Barmore, a lifelong Rockford resident, was spotted Aug. 24, 2009 by patrol officers Oda Poole and Stan North outside the Kingdom Authority International Ministries Church he occasionally attended. Barmore, a 23-year-old unarmed black man, was fatally shot by two white police officers inside a northern Illinois church-run day care filled with children. Competing stories about how 23-year-old Mark Anthony Barmore died last month have reopened racial wounds in the struggling city of Rockford. Authorities say the officers and Barmore struggled over a police gun, leading both officers to shoot.
Barmore died at the scene of a gunshot wound to the neck and several to the back, said Winnebago County coroner Sue Fiduccia, who declined to give details citing pending tests.
Eyewitnesses say that outside the church's day care center, Mr. Barmore encountered two police officers who apparently were looking for him on an allegation of domestic violence. He ran inside the church, and the officers followed him, guns drawn, without a warrant. After Mr. Barmore entered a small boiler room, the police demanded he come out. He slowly exited the room with his hands up. Then, witnesses say, police shot him -- in front of small children in the day care center. While he lay face down, witnesses say, police shot him three more times in the back!
"My concern was for the children," says daycare worker, Sheila Brown. "I wanted to make sure they were okay. I tried to push them as far back into the corner so they wouldn't see anything."
Police Chief Epperson (pictured left) said that Barmore was wanted in connection with two domestic disputes, one of which may have involved the use of a knife. A police squad followed Barmore after he ran into Kingdom Authority International Ministries. The House of Grace Daycare Center is located in a building connected to the church. House of Grace cares for 43 infants and 166 toddlers. It is reported that there were 10 children in the room when the officers killed Barmore.
Reports indicate that Rockford officers have been using intimidation tactics against witnesses, such as sitting outside their homes and slowly driving by their homes.
We have also learned that both officers involved in this killing have been accused of several other questionable police shootings.
North, 47, a 22-year Rockford police veteran, shot someone in 2003. Poole, 37, has shot three unarmed people, one fatally, in his five years with Rockford.
• In April 2007, Rockford, IL police officer Poole was involved in the “suicide by cop” case, firing the shot that killed Lewis Henderson Jr., 66, of Rockford. Henderson left behind a message saying that he was going to pretend having a gun so that the cops would kill him.
• In or about February 2007, Oda Poole, who was then 35, shot two unarmed men. Officer Poole’s shooting of the two men, Billy Peavy, 44, and Robert Evitt, 39, both of Rockford, was said to be justifiable as an act of self-defense when one allegedly attempted to run over Poole with his car.
Grand juries found all incidents justified.
October 1, 2009
The U.S. Department of Justice is monitoring the investigation of police-involved shooting in Rockford that left an unarmed 23-year-old man dead inside a church-run daycare. Authorities say Mark Anthony Barmore struggled with officers over a gun, leading officers to use deadly force. But witnesses say Barmore surrendered.
His Aug. 24, 2009 death has sparked racial tensions as both police officers are white and Barmore was black. It has also ignited a call to action for better economic conditions in the struggling manufacturing community of about 160,000. The DOJ has dispatched mediators to help quell unrest. DOJ spokesman Alejandro Miyar (MEE-yar) says the agency is also monitoring the local investigation and will evaluate options after it’s finished. He declined to give further details Thursday.
