Sacramento, California ~ ( Originally Published: March 26, 2016 ~ Updated: July 4, 2018) -- The Golden State Killer, Joseph DeAngelo, is one of the most prolific predators in U.S. history. He sometimes invaded different houses on consecutive nights. Deangelo sometimes returned to the same neighborhood so often that the people who lived there slept in shifts. He terrorized the suburbs of Sacramento. Later on, he continued his murderous crime spree, near Los Angeles, hundreds of miles to the south. (See: Full Hearing!)

Milwaukee, Wisconsin · (@Wilabee) ~ United States (WCJB) (Originally Published: May 23, 2018 ~ Updated: May 24, 2018) -- The video (Click here) shows an officer approaching Sterling Brown as he goes to get back into his car. The car was parked right in front of the Walgreens (the lot is essentially empty because it’s about 2 a.m.). Brown points out that he doesn’t see anything wrong with parking across two lanes since the lot is empty. The officer tells Brown to back away from him and calls for backup. 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.

(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. 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.

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)

Montgomery County, Pa. -- Bill Cosby, the comedian and entertainer once known as “America’s dad”, appeared in court (Click here for video) to face his first criminal charge for sexual misconduct on Wednesday, for an incident in which he allegedly drugged and violated a woman who considered him to be her mentor.

Oklahoma City OK ~ USA -- A former Oklahoma City police officer was convicted Thursday of 18 of the 36 counts he faced, including four counts of first-degree rape, related to accusations that he victimized 13 women on his police beat in a minority, low-income neighborhood.

Oakland, CA (WCJB)

On May 18, 2010, a federal appeals court upheld $3.7 million in damages Tuesday against the city of Oakland [California] and two police officers who, according to a jury, planted an assault rifle on a parolee's property. Jurors found in November 2007 that the officers had violated the civil rights of the parolee, Torry Smith, and his then-girlfriend, Patricia Gray, by fabricating a case against Smith to justify his arrest in September 2004. Smith spent 4 1/2 months in jail before being cleared.

They All Carry Guns!

PUBLISHED: Sept. 15, 2017 at 02:50 pm | UPDATED: Sept. 20, 2017 at 03:54 pm

St. Louis, MO -- 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.

Description: Los Angeles, CA – Lazarus was sentenced to 27 years to life in prison with the possibility of parole for killing her ex-boyfriend's wife nearly three decades ago in a fit of rage and jealousy. Prosecutors said in a "statement of views" filed in court that "Lazarus misused her police training in the most profound way imaginable by utilizing that training and experience to commit murder and to cover up her crime. Lazarus betrayed the trust placed in her by the Los Angeles Police Department and by people of Los Angeles in order to pursue her own murderous ends."

Oakland Voices: No outrage over `thug on thug' shootings
~ By: Ronald Owens Oakland Voices


You're Tommin' (or Uncle Tommin'). You expect to be accepted in White Circles like Clarence Thomas, Ward Connerly, Condoleeza Rice, Martin Jenkins and Janice Brown. Each and every time the (racist) power structure GIVES an “Uncle Tom,” or an “Aunt Jemima” a job, you turn and castigate the entire Black community. Imagine what our current predicament would be if Rosa Parks, Thurgood Marshall, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., or Thelton Henderson had done the same! You neglect to mention that the employment rates in Oakland is at a rate of 50% for Blacks (As of November 2, 2012, the National rate of unemployment rate).

"It's like using the N-word. It's OK to use that racist term if you're black, but if somebody from some other race dares to use it, there's going to be a federal case made out of it."

Youth of all races now use the N-word. All you have to do is walk down he street and you'll hear members of all races using the slang derivative N!gga versus N!gger. You're also uneducated on the subject matter as well. For example: Black men are incarcerated for selling Marijuana in the City of Oakland. Meanwhile, Caucasian men are granted licenses to operate "Cannabis Clubs." Perhaps you haven't seen that large Cannabis Club across the Street from the 7th Street Oakland Police Station.

In conclusion, you'll note there are no protests occurring based upon the former BART Officer killing his wife in North Carolina (http://www.insidebayarea.com/breaking-news/ci_22130256/former-bart-police-officer-from-livermore-shoots-wife). There's also no derogatory racist statements being made about Black people either.Blacks): “Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for blacks increased to 14.3 percent in October, while the rates for adult men (7.3 percent), adult women (7.2 percent), teenagers (23.7 percent), whites (7.0 percent), and Hispanics (10.0 percent) showed little or no change. The jobless rate for Asians was 4.9 percent in October (not seasonally adjusted), down from 7.3 percent a year earlier.

Your writing indicates you think that because they GAVE you a Job, they're GIVING Jobs to other Blacks. This is not true. You're simply a token Negro, like Rice, Connerly, Thomas, Jenkins and Brown.

Homicides in all racial communities are intra-cultural homicides (with anomalous exception, i.e., inter-racial gang violence). This means Whites kill Whites; Blacks kill Blacks; Latinos kill Latinos, Asians kill Asians, etc. If our society were truly diverse, you'd see more inter-racial homicides. For example, in a significant number of homicides, the victim and the killer, were intimately associated, or otherwise familiar with each other (this includes your run-of-the-mill urban robbery/homicides). Homicide is a fact of life in the Democratic United States of America. However, the Police (from an historical perspective) kill more Black men then any other race in the United States. The protests are based upon the historical legacy of White Racism towards Black men.

Members of the Black community lack the resources to confront armed street thugs. As you can readily see, the police departments across the Nation are having a hard time dealing with armed street thugs. You've (intentionally) neglected to point out that 99.9% of all manufacturing, importation and sales of guns (especially assault rifles) are conducted and facilitated by Caucasian men. How does an AK-47 make its way from China, or Russia, onto the streets of Urban Black America? There exists no Black-on-Black bias in homicides. The Black community does not hold that "it's okay to kill another member of the community, as long as you're not a police officer." The protest are based upon a long-standing two-prong policy of racism. The two-prong policy is as follows:

1. Arming the criminal element(s) of the Black community; and
2. Criminalizing the entire Black community (justifying the use of force, including lethal force).

For example: Federal Drug Task Force Commander Norman Weilsch was actually a drug dealer and brothel operator, a liar and a thief. He executed a “bogus” drug warrant to steal drugs and wound up killing the Black male resident of the dwelling. As it turns out, the Black male was not a drug dealer. Norman and his fellow officers were the drug dealers. Drugs, Drug Dealers, Criminal Street Gangs and the police are the root cause of homicide in the Black community.

More poignant is the fact Herman Cain (a black male) lost any chance at being President of the United States based upon alleged past and personal indiscretions. However, Rep. Maxine Waters campaigned for pioneering (crack-cocaine) Drug-Dealer Ricky Ross (a black male) to be released from prison. In addition, Jovan Belcher recently murdered the mother of his child (then himself). You've again (intentionally) neglected to mention this fact, or factors. The community, as well as the (racist) power structure investing in Black males, who do nothing but harm our community. Again, this is called Public Policy. Ricky Ross and Jovan Belcher are and were held out as role models in our community. The only other opportunity for a Black male to succeed under the circumstances, is to conduct himself as you are doing here, i.e., play the role of the “Uncle Tom.”

You also said: “And then, the victim of the day will be forgotten until the next man, woman, or child gets shot and killed. Most likely the next dead body will be that of a young black man, shot and killed by another young black man. And, most likely, the killer will get away with murder, given the Oakland Police Department's low rate of success in solving crimes, as evidenced by the annual report of the OPD's criminal investigation division. People seem to get up in arms only if a cop does the killing, a la Oscar Grant or Alan Blueford. If it's black on black, it's business as usual. But if it's cop on black -- oh, damn, it's on!”

This is called public policy enforced by law enforcement. Homicide in the Black Community is a low priority in Police Departments across the Nation. It is the Public Policy for Law Enforcement to kill young Black males (http://youtu.be/5qW633VB4tU) or facilitate the homicides of young black males. Where this policy fails, the secondary policy of Mass Incarceration shall be substituted (http://youtu.be/H0SGvJEfgh4).

The police have been killing Blacks long before you were born. At the current rate, they'll be doing the same by the time your grandchildren are born (if the police don't kill you before you bear grandchildren). Your “Uncle Tomish” attempt to ratify, or otherwise condone the behavior of racist Latino and Caucasian police officers is not missed by all. You (intentionally) neglect to point out that 99.9% of these police killings of Black males are committed by male Latino, or Caucasian police officers. If these shootings were indeed justified, you'd see more female officers, as well as Black male officers being responsible for the shootings.

Most notably, you make no mention of Caucasian males purchasing large quantities of ammunition and going on shooting rampages. The Caucasian community never protests these things. You're out of touch with reality. Specifically you said:

"It's like using the N-word. It's OK to use that racist term if you're black, but if somebody from some other race dares to use it, there's going to be a federal case made out of it."

Youth of all races now use the N-word. All you have to do is walk down he street and you'll hear members of all races using the slang derivative N!gga versus N!gger. You're also uneducated on the subject matter as well. For example: Black men are incarcerated for selling Marijuana in the City of Oakland. Meanwhile, Caucasian men are granted licenses to operate "Cannabis Clubs." Perhaps you haven't seen that large Cannabis Club across the Street from the 7th Street Oakland Police Station.

In conclusion, you'll note there are no protests occurring based upon the former BART Officer killing his wife in North Carolina (http://www.insidebayarea.com/breaking-news/ci_22130256/former-bart-police-officer-from-livermore-shoots-wife). There's also no derogatory racist statements being made about Black people either.

Gray Death!

Posted: April 21, 2015 7:38 p.m. EDT ~ Updated: April 21, 2015 7:38 p.m. PDT

Baltimore, Md. -- Baltimore police released the names of six officers suspended with pay while the in-custody death of Freddie Gray is investigated. Gray died Sunday as a result of a spinal cord injury.

Other officers involved in Gray's arrest include:

Sgt. Alicia White, 30, a member of the department since 2010; Officer Caesar Goodson, 45, who has been on the police force since 1999; Officer William Porter, 25, Officer Garrett Miller, 26; and Officer Edward Nero, 29, all joined BPD in 2012, police said. Three of the officers were on bicycle when they arrested Gray. One of the officers is the van transport driver and two others are officers who were called to help check on Gray in the back of the van, police said.

The officers include Lieutenant Brian Rice, a member of the Baltimore Police Department since 1997. Police said Rice, 41, was the officer who first made eye contact with Gray and another man. After making eye contact, police said, Gray ran from police before he was tackled and detained.

Gray was arrested April 12 after an officer said he fled from police unprovoked, according to a police report. Police said they used no force while arresting Gray who was put into a police transport van while complaining of asthma and his detention. About a half hour later, police said, he was unresponsive and in critical condition.

Police continue to investigate what caused his injuries while witnesses at West Baltimore's Gilmor Homes, where he was arrested, say they saw him beaten. Police did not specify each of the officers' roles in Gray's arrest and transport.

BALTIMORE, MD — Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African-American man, was treated for spinal injuries following his arrest by city police last week. Gray’s spine was 80% severed at his neck while he was in police custody. He lapsed into a coma and underwent surgery on April 13 before dying at about 7 a.m. Sunday. The family said Mr. Gray previously had been healthy.

Deputy Police Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said Mr. Gray was arrested in a part of the city known for drug activity. He said that officers believed Gray was involved in criminal acts. Facts surrounding the case remained unclear on Sunday, including why Mr. Gray was taken into custody. “That is still a bit vague, but we’ve not interviewed all of the officers involved,” said Mr. Rodriguez. Deputy Police Commissioner Rodriguez oversees the department’s internal affairs unit. Police have said Mr. Gray tried to flee officers before he was arrested.

Video of Mr. Gray’s arrest taken by a bystander appears to show officers dragging him to a police van. But Mr. Rodriguez said he has seen video that appears to show Mr. Gray helping himself into the police van. Mr. Rodriguez said it is unclear whether Mr. Gray was injured while being transported in the van. “We have no physical, video or any other evidence of an altercation that would have resulted in this [injury to Mr. Gray], so the question, is how and why?” Mr. Rodriguez said. “And more importantly, if there is anything contributory from our agency, how can we prevent that? We’re not there yet, but we will get there.”

The lawyer representing Mr. Gray’s family, said the arrest “occurred under a police video camera, which taped everything including the police dragging and throwing [Mr. Gray] into a police vehicle while he screamed in pain. We believe the police are keeping the circumstances of Freddie’s death secret until they develop a version of events that will absolve them of all responsibility,” said a family attorney.

Officials launched a criminal probe of the circumstances involving Gray's death. Officials didn’t offer their own characterization of Mr. Gray’s injuries. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said: “I want citizens to know exactly how it happened and if necessary, I will ensure we will hold the right people accountable.” The Mayor spoke Sunday during a City Hall news conference, flanked by Police Commissioner Anthony Batts. Marilyn Mosby, the city’s chief prosecutor, is involved in the probe of an unknown number of city police officers who took part in Freddie Gray’s arrest on April 12.

An independent review board also will examine police officers’ interactions with Mr. Gray, Mr. Batts said. Police officers can’t be compelled to give statements if they are the subject of a criminal probe, he said, adding that the department has interviewed officers and bystanders who witnessed the arrest.

North Charleston, S.C. -- Clarence Habersahm (pictured above, center) is the black officer who was caught on camera standing over Walter Scott as he lay dying. Habersahm stood by while Officer Michael Slager staged the murder scene. Habersahm was also among five North Charleston officers accused of beating a man back in 2011. Habersahm was among the officers who stomped on the face of robbery suspect Sheldon Williams while he was handcuffed. Williams is black.

According to the federal lawsuit, Williams, 47, alleges he suffered “severe pain for months after the attack.” He alleges that his face was left “so swollen that his left eye was barely visible.” He alleges that he continues to endure “flashbacks and other post-traumatic stress symptoms.” “In addition, [Williams] experiences a sensation of insects crawling on the left side of his face as a result of nerve damage,” the lawsuit alleges. Williams is seeking damages.

Attorneys for Williams admit that he committed a crime. However, they say that’s still no excuse for the beating he suffered. Another attorney said Williams had stolen a tip jar containing about $500 from a female street food vendor a few days earlier. He was alleged to have had a knife. She said that regardless of his crime Williams did not deserve to be physically attacked. “He did not resist, he was handcuffed quickly, yet the officers saw fit to stomp his face,” said the attorney.

North Charleston, S.C. — Michael T. Slager, 33, was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting Walter L. Scott, 50, in the back and killing him after a traffic stop on Saturday. Scott was an apparently unarmed black man. Slager is a white police officer in North Charleston, S.C. The officer said he had feared for his life because the man had taken his stun gun in a scuffle. The video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as Scott fled.

The shooting unfolded after Officer Slager stopped Scott driving a Mercedes-Benz with a broken taillight. according to police reports. Mr. Scott ran away, and Officer Slager chased him into a grassy lot that abuts a muffler shop. He fired his Taser, an electronic stun gun, but it did not stop Mr. Scott, according to police reports. Moments after the struggle, Officer Slager reported on his radio: “Shots fired and the subject is down. He took my Taser,” according to police reports.

However, the video, which was taken by a bystander and provided to media sources by the Scott family’s lawyer, presents a different account. The video begins in the vacant lot, apparently moments after Officer Slager fired his Taser. Wires, which carry the electrical current from the stun gun, appear to be extending from Mr. Scott’s body as the two men tussle and Mr. Scott turns to run. Something — it is not clear whether it is the stun gun — is either tossed or knocked to the ground behind the two men.

Officer Slager draws his gun, the video shows. When the officer fires, Mr. Scott appears to be 15 to 20 feet away and fleeing. He falls after the last of eight shots. The officer then runs back toward where the initial scuffle occurred and picks something up off the ground. Moments later, he drops an object near Mr. Scott’s body, the video shows. The Supreme Court has held that an officer may use deadly force against a fleeing suspect only when there is probable cause that the suspect “poses a significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or others.”

Police reports say that officers performed CPR and delivered first aid to Mr. Scott. The video shows that for several minutes after the shooting, Mr. Scott remained face down with his hands cuffed behind his back. A second officer arrives, puts on blue medical gloves and attends to Mr. Scott, but is not shown performing CPR. As sirens wail in the background, a third officer later arrives, apparently with a medical kit, but is also not seen performing CPR.

A lawyer for Scott's family said the coroner had told him that Mr. Scott was struck five times — three times in the back, once in the upper buttocks and once in the ear — with at least one bullet entering his heart. It is not clear whether Mr. Scott died immediately. The coroner’s office declined to make the report available to media sources.

The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening. “When you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” Mayor Keith Summey said during the news conference. “And if you make a bad decision, don’t care if you’re behind the shield or just a citizen on the street, you have to live by that decision.” The shooting came on the heels of high-profile instances of police officers’ using lethal force in New York, Cleveland, Ferguson, Mo., and other states. The deaths have set off a national debate over whether the police are too quick to use force, particularly in cases involving black men.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, the state’s criminal investigative body, has begun an inquiry into the shooting. The F.B.I. and the Justice Department, which has opened a string of civil rights investigations into police departments under Mr. Holder, is also investigating.

Officer Slager served in the Coast Guard before joining the force five years ago, his lawyer said. The police chief of North Charleston did not return repeated calls. Because police departments are not required to release data on how often officers use force, it was not immediately clear how often police shootings occurred in North Charleston, a working-class community adjacent to the tourist destination of Charleston.

Mr. Scott had been arrested about 10 times, mostly for failing to pay child support or show up for court hearings, according to newspapers of Charleston. He was arrested in 1987 on an assault and battery charge and convicted in 1991 of possession of a bludgeon, the newspapers reported. Mr. Scott’s brother, Anthony, said he believed Mr. Scott had fled from the police on Saturday because he owed child support. “He has four children; he doesn’t have some type of big violent past or arrest record,” said a lawyer for Mr. Scott’s family. “He had a job; he was engaged. He had back child support and didn’t want to go to jail for back child support.”

Mr. Scott’s brother said his mother had called him on Saturday, telling him that his brother had been shot by a Taser after a traffic stop. “You may need to go over there and see what’s going on,” he said his mother told him. When he arrived at the scene of the shooting, officers told him that his brother was dead, but he said they had no explanation for why. “This just doesn’t sound right,” he said in an interview. “How do you lose your life at a traffic stop?”

Anthony Scott said he last saw his brother three weeks ago at a family oyster roast. “We hadn’t hung out like that in such a long time,” Mr. Scott said. “He kept on saying over and over again how great it was.”

At the roast, Mr. Scott got to do two of the things he enjoyed most: tell jokes and dance. When one of Mr. Scott’s favorite songs was played, he got excited. “He jumped up and said, ‘That’s my song,’ and he danced like never before,” his brother said.

The debate over police use of force has been propelled in part by videos like the one in South Carolina. In January, prosecutors in Albuquerque charged two police officers with murder for shooting a homeless man in a confrontation that was captured by an officer’s body camera. Federal prosecutors are investigating the death of Eric Garner, who died last year in Staten Island after a police officer put him in a chokehold, an episode that a bystander captured on video. A video taken in Cleveland shows the police shooting a 12-year-old boy, Tamir Rice, who was carrying a fake gun in a park. A White House policing panel recommended that police departments put more video cameras on their officers.

North Charleston is South Carolina’s third-largest city, with a population of about 100,000. African-Americans make up about 47 percent of residents, and whites account for about 37 percent. The Police Department is about 80 percent white, according to data collected by the Justice Department in 2007, the most recent period available.


Driving While Black!

Published: 4/27/2011 ~ Updated: 04/29/2011

An attorney with the San Francisco public defender's office has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Alameda County Sheriff's Office, claiming he was pulled over for no reason for a traffic stop last year and was handcuffed when he tried to videotape deputies who searched his car. Kwixuan Maloof, 42, a managing attorney in the public defender's felony unit, said the initial stop on March 5, 2010, in Castro Valley was an instance of racial profiling. Maloof is African American, and the deputy who pulled him over was white, the attorney said. "It's important for the public to know that police officers do make mistakes, and they should be held accountable for the mistakes they make," Maloof said Tuesday. Maloof has been a public defender for 10 years and is president of the Charles Houston Bar Association, the largest group of black lawyers in Northern California.

Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern has not seen the suit, said Sgt. J.D. Nelson, a department spokesman. However, Nelson said, "the sheriff takes pride that all of his Sheriff's Office employees act in accordance with the law and remain professional at all times, even during difficult situations."

Maloof said he was driving home in a 2004 Cadillac XLR when the unidentified white sheriff's deputy pulled him over on Castro Valley Boulevard near Five Canyons Parkway. Maloof asked the deputy why he was being stopped, and the deputy said he had "heard a loud voice" coming from inside the car when in fact Maloof was alone, said the suit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. "Maloof suspected that he was being stopped because he was black (racially 'profiled') and took out his cell phone, camera enabled, to record the interaction with the deputy," the suit said. "The deputy immediately turned his flashlight to blind the camera."

Maloof told the deputy that his driver's license was in his suit jacket in the trunk. The deputy responded that he intended to search the trunk. Maloof said he asked again for the reason for being stopped, and the deputy told him that he had not committed any traffic offense, the suit said. Maloof told the deputy that he "was not consenting to a search of his trunk," and the deputy said a second deputy was on the way. That deputy, an African American man identified in the suit only as R. Jackson, noticed that Maloof was still recording on his camera. "(Jackson) told plaintiff to put the camera away and, without even waiting for compliance, immediately placed plaintiff in handcuffs, confiscated plaintiff's phone and turned it off," the suit said. Maloof was placed in the back of a sheriff's cruiser "where anyone could see him as a criminal suspect," and the deputies searched Maloof's trunk over his protests as a sergeant stood by, the suit said.

"They ignored plaintiff's repeated advisory that they had no right or consent to search his trunk," said the suit, which lists Alameda County and Jackson as defendants and seeks unspecified damages. The deputies "completed the ransacking of his trunk and ultimately released him at the scene with no charges," the suit said. Maloof's attorney, John Burris, said the incident was an "egregious form of racial profiling, the type of thing that can happen to any black person in this country at any point in time. This case illustrates that a highly professional person can have this done to them, let alone an ordinary person."

Unarmed & Shot!

October 22, 2010

RALEIGH, N.C. (WCJB) -- The Raleigh Police Department's internal affairs unit is investigating a shooting involving a police officer. It happened around 5 a.m. Thursday at a Motel 6 at 3520 Maitland Drive near New Bern Avenue. According to the Raleigh Police Department, officers were called to the motel about a disturbance. "There is some crazy lady out here screaming and hollering and I don't know what's going on I'm in the office and I don't have no security," a caller told a 911 operator. A short time later, three officers arrived on the scene at virtually the same time and confronted 37-year-old Emmerli Latrice Wilcoxson just a few yards away from the motel. Authorities say the woman was yelling, threatening and charging at officers just before they fired their weapons.

At a news conference late Thursday afternoon, Raleigh Police Chief Harry Dolan said the woman was unarmed. He said multiple shots were fired, but would not give an exact number. "As the first officer began to approach the subject, she made statements and gestures threatening the life of the officers which was immediately followed by her charging the officers," Dolan said. "Multiple shots were fired by the officers and the subject was struck." The woman was hit by the gunfire and taken to WakeMed in critical condition. Dolan identified the officers involved as:

Officer C. Matthews II, who was employed by the RPD on Feb. 16, 2009, and is currently assigned to the Field Operations Division’s Northeast District.

Officer P.D. Matthews, who was employed by the RPD on Feb. 23, 2009, and is currently assigned to the Field Operations Division’s Northeast District.

Officer D.C. Painter, who was employed by the RPD on Nov. 20, 2006, and is currently assigned to the Field Operations Division’s Northeast District.
Dolan said it appears Wilcoxson is not from North Carolina.

"She is not from the Raleigh area, and preliminary investigation of the case indicates she arrived here Wednesday. Her most recent residences appear to have been in communities in Clayton County, Georgia," he said. The night manager at the Motel 6 tells News sources that the woman, who had checked in the night before with a small child, seemed upset. "All I know is she was hysterical, very hysterical and very loud," manager Andre Orellano said. A short time after the shooting, other officers went to the woman's room on the second floor and brought out the child, who appeared to be a toddler. The child is now in the custody of social services.

Acquittal: Not guilty verdict
for man accused of
shooting rapper to death!

May 23, 2010

A man who shot and killed an up-and-coming rapper at the Beverly Center last year was acquitted of murder Friday in a case that focused in part on the victim's violence-laced gangsta rap lyrics. Aubrey Berry, 24, (pictured above, right) was hugged by his defense attorney as the last of the not guilty verdicts was read in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom. Friends and family of rapper Dolla, whose real name was Roderick Anthony Burton II, wailed and sobbed in the audience. "Obviously, what happened on May 18, 2009, was a horrible tragedy for everyone," Superior Court Judge Michael E. Pastor told the lawyers in court. "The jurors have spoken."

'N-Word Down!'


Published: May 02, 2011 Updated: May 28, 2011 - 3:56 PM A man who once helped uphold the law is now dead. The latest murder of an African-American citizen (pictured left) under color of state law happened in Eutawville, South Carolina. Eutawville a tiny town of about 400 people in the middle of the state - 70 miles southeast of Columbia. Friends of the man shot and killed in front of the Eutawville town hall on Monday say 54 -year-old Bernard Bailey once worked for the South Carolina Department of Corrections. "He wasn't just anybody," former co-worker Master Wahoo Rahmaan said. Rahmaan says Bailey was a former corrections officer for MacDougall prison in Ridgeville. "He also worked at the medical university as an officer," he said. Rahmaan described Bernard Bailey as a big man with an easy going personality. That's why he and others say they are left with many unanswered questions. "Just to hear that a man was taken out like that was very surprising," Rahmaan said. Tuesday the Orangeburg County Coroner's Office performed an autopsy on Bailey. They say he died from 2 gunshot wounds to the chest and one to the shoulder. Mr. Bernard Bailey, 54, went to pay a utility bill at the Town Hall building this past Monday, May 2, 2011. Mr. Bailey, who had worked at Wal-Mart in nearby Summerville for at least the past 17 years, apparently asked Eutawville Police Chief Richard Combs about a traffic violation a relative of his received from Combs. That question led to Chief Combs firing a gun at Mr. Bailey three times, as he sat in his pickup truck, killing him instantly. Mr. Bailey's bullet-riddled body sat in the truck for hours while thug Combs was taken to the hospital for "treatment." The police chief has been rewarded for killing Mr. Bailey with a paid vacation, aka "paid administrative leave." Witnesses said a truck left in front of town hall belonged to Bailey. Investigators won't say why it was there. The murder of Mr. Bailey is just one more in a continual pattern of White cops killing "black" people based upon personal discretion. Incidentally, another blackman was apparently killed a day prior outside of a gun club in the same town Mr. Bailey worked. South Carolina is not only a Confederate haven, it is still not very far removed from antebellum culture. State Senator Glenn McConnell, R-Charleston,(pictured left, center) was recently photographed in a Confederate Army costume with two "black" dudes dressed as slaves. Mr. Bailey was a beloved man in the community and inspired many people. "In the 25+ years I have known Coach Bailey, I can't remember a single incident where he was unkind, inconsiderate or impatient with anyone," Ms. Martha Sue Hope wrote in an online forum set up for people to leave condolences. "Bernard was an inspiration to anyone who had the privilege to meet him...always had a smile on his face and kind words to say," wrote Tracy Ussery. After retiring from the Department of Corrections, Brittany Williams says her mom worked with Bailey at the Summerville Wal-Mart. "Every time I went in there, there wasn't a time when he seemed negative. He always had a smile on his face and was uplifting," Williams said. Friends of Bailey say he leaves behind a wife and children. He also owned his own landscaping business. Combs was just months into the job in Eutawville before the State Law Enforcement Division was called out to look into the shooting that happened Monday in front of the town hall. Combs is now part of a SLED investigation after fatally shooting 54-year-old Bernard Bailey. According to records from the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy, Combs was previously an officer in the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office and had his employment terminated in 2007. The report lists his reason for termination as "violation of AGENCY police NOT involving micsonduct, good character or moral turpitude.. (i.e., substandard performance, excessive absenteeism, sleeping on duty, etc.) Combs' record shows he was hired 4 months later by the Elloree Police Dept and served there for 4 years until becoming the chief in Eutawville in February 2011.

Mehserle 2011!

Eurie Stamps Sr.

March 10, 2011 FRAMINGHAM — The lawyer for the children of a man shot and killed by a Framingham Police officer said he will conduct his own investigation after the Middlesex district attorney's office yesterday ruled the shooting accidental. The lawyer called the description provided by Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone's office about how Officer Paul Duncan shot and killed Eurie Stamps Sr. on Jan. 5, 2011 implausible. The district attorney's office ruled that Duncan's shooting of the 68-year-old Stamps was an accident and not a crime and had occurred when Duncan tripped and fell. "This is a member of an elite SWAT team," said the attorney, who represents Stamps' four adult children. "One has to question, as reported by the district attorney, if that is, in fact, what happened. There's an air of implausibility." (Pictured left, Eurie Stamps Sr., 68, was shot and killed at his 26 Fountain St. home when police entered his home to serve a drug search warrant early Wednesday morning, 1/5/11) The Framingham Police Department, in a statement, expressed sorrow over Stamps' death. "Town Manager Julian M. Suso, Police Chief Steven B. Carl, and the Framingham Police Department express their deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to the Stamps family, for what was a tragedy in every sense of the word. The town of Framingham is deeply saddened by the loss of Mr. Stamps and Officer Duncan has been profoundly affected by this tragic accident." According to the district attorney's office, Framingham Police obtained a warrant on Jan. 4 to search 26 Fountain St. Detectives had conducted an investigation into reports that someone was selling cocaine from an apartment there. Police had made several undercover drug purchases from a man who the district attorney's office did not name in its report and from Joseph Bushfan, 20, who lived at 26 Fountain St., and who is Stamps' stepson. Prosecutors had previously said Dwayne Barrett of Framingham was the second target of the investigation. (Pictured left, the door to Eurie Stamps' 26 Fountain St. home after police entered his home and fatally shot him.)Police decided to use the department's SWAT team to serve the search warrant based on several factors, including the fact that Bushfan and the second man had violent criminal histories, the district attorney's office said. In particular, the second man was known to be a member of a local gang, and was a "known associate of an individual involved in the 2009 shooting of Framingham Officer Phil Hurton," the report said. Early on Jan. 5, as police were getting ready to serve the warrant, Bushfan came out of the apartment. Police took him into custody a few hundred feet from the apartment. The SWAT team then knocked on the door, announced they were there, and entered the apartment, the district attorney's office said. Later that day, a photographer took a photo of the badly damaged door, suggesting police broke it down. "Two Framingham Police officers made entry and arrived inside the kitchen, then spread out and scanned the room," the district attorney's office said. "They both observed movement and people on the other side of the kitchen, in the area of the hallway and in the back bedroom." Officers saw a large man, later identified as Stamps, come out of a back bedroom. They ordered him to lay on the floor. Through a cluttered hallway, police rushed to intercept another man, later identified as Devon Talbert, who they feared might be armed. Talbert refused to comply with their orders to put up his hands. Duncan, who is a member of the SWAT team, decided to check Stamps for weapons, and got beside him with his two hands on his rifle. Duncan lost his balance as he tried to step around Stamps, according to the DA's office, and fell backward. "While falling, Officer Duncan removed his left hand from his rifle, which was pointing down towards the ground, and put his left arm out to try to catch himself," said the district attorney's office. "As he did so, he heard a shot and then his body made impact with the wall. At that point, Officer Duncan, who was lying on the ground with his back against the wall, realized he was practically on top of Mr. Stamps and that Mr. Stamps was bleeding." Duncan yelled: "Man down, man down." Medics with the SWAT team began treating Stamps, who was then taken to MetroWest Medical Center, where he was declared dead. "Officer Duncan told another officer on scene within moments of the incident that he had stumbled and lost his balance while moving to get in a better position, and as he was falling, his gun fired," the district attorney's office said. The state medical examiner's office determined that Stamps died from a single gunshot wound to his upper body. The shooting does "not rise to the level of criminal conduct, and the shooting death of Eurie Stamps was an accident," the district attorney's office said. Leone called the incident extremely tragic and sad. "I have met with Mr. Stamps' family regarding our findings and determinations and discussed with them the legal obligations that I and this office have under the law in police-involved fatal shootings." Duncan, a former police officer in Mendon and Shrewsbury, has been on paid administrative leave since the shooting. He joined the Framingham department in 2006. The case has now been referred back to the Framingham Police Department, which has the option of conducting its own investigation. Despite the findings, the lawyer and the attorney who represents Stamps' wife, Norma Bushfan, said they plan to continue asking questions. "When an innocent man dies this way at the hands of the police, there really are no excuses that can satisfactorily explain away such a tragedy," said the attorney. "Mr. Stamps' civil rights were surely violated, and those who are responsible must be held accountable for his death." The attorney said, "We believe the DA's report leaves unanswered several critical questions about this incident. We seek a full accounting of what went so terribly wrong here, and we do not yet have that."The attorney sees inconsistencies in the district attorney's report. He said it does not make sense that Stamps was on the floor, yet he was shot in the face. He also said the report was "too general," and the lawyers' investigation will be more thorough. "It will focus on details," said the attorney. "The report doesn't mention any key facts. It makes it sound like there were two (SWAT team members) in the house, when there were 18 SWAT team members and police officers in the house." He also said no drugs were ever sold from the apartment. Any drug deals happened outside, he said. Also, police had Bushfan in custody before the SWAT team went inside. He said they should have changed their plan once their target was in custody. "They stormed this house, which was occupied by a 68-year-old disabled MBTA mechanic laying in bed in his pajamas watching a basketball game," he said. If the district attorney's report is true, then it raises another set of questions about the training of Duncan, who has been a SWAT team member since 2008, and the SWAT team as a whole. "At the minimum, we have a SWAT team that is poorly trained," he said. "The gun was found to have no defects. The report said the gun went off, it would be fair to say the trigger was pulled." The lawyers have requested all documents related to the investigation, and they said they plan to interview everyone connected with the investigation under oath, he said. "We have not filed a lawsuit yet," he said. "It's important we have as many facts as we can before we file (a lawsuit) in federal court." Bushfan and Talbert, both 20, were arrested by police that night and face several drug charges. Bushfan is currently serving an 18-month sentence in the Billerica House of Correction after pleading guilty two months ago to charges in connection with two 2008 robberies in Cambridge. January 5, 2011 Eurie Stamps Sr. retired from the MBTA in 2006 after a 20-year career working with machines in the bus division, the agency said. Before leaving for a walk, the former MBTA worker would grab a cap and an elaborate wooden cane, cutting a suave figure as he slowly made his way from his family's Fountain Street apartment. [N]eighbors reacted with shock yesterday when they heard the gentlemanly retiree had been fatally shot by a Framingham police officer during a raid that led to the the arrests of the man's stepson and the stepson's cousin on drug charges. "It's pretty bothersome," said upstairs tenant Joey Fisher, standing outside puffing on a cigarette after a night in which he heard a clamor so loud "I thought I was in Fallujah." He saw Stamps taken out on a stretcher. Framingham’s Police Chief, Steven Carl released this statement about the shooting.
"At 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 5, the Framingham Police SWAT Team served a search warrant at 26 Fountain St. in Framingham. During the service of the search warrant Mr. Eurie Stamps was tragically and fatally struck by a bullet which was discharged from a SWAT officer’s rifle. Despite immediate intervention by tactical medics, he died at the scene. The officer involved has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the District Attorney’s Office’s independent investigation into the justifiability of the shooting. Our condolences are with Mr. Stamp’s family for the heartbreak they are understandably enduring and we will await the findings of the investigation before taking any additional administrative action. According to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, the investigation will take three to four weeks and the identity of the Framingham officer who shot Stamps will not be released until the investigation is complete."

Detroit P.D. Police Lies & Murders!

Posted: Fri Dec 16, 2011 3:5p3m PST - Updated: Illustration commissioned by an attorney that shows what he said is how 7 year old Aiyana Stanley-Jones was killed by Detroit Police Special Response Team member Joseph Weekley: a gunshot through the head, not neck as previously reported. Detroit, Michigan -- A seven year-old girl was shot (pictured below, left) and killed Sunday during a police raid in Detroit, Michigan, United States when one of the officer's guns was accidentally set off during an argument with the girl's grandmother. Police were raiding the home in search of a 34 year-old male suspect accused of murdering teenager Jarean Blake near a local liquor store the previous night. According to police reports, Mertilla Jones got into a verbal confrontation with a police officer, which quickly turned physical. The woman, according to the police, then came into contact with the officer which inadvertently set off the gun that he was carrying. The bullet then struck the girl, Aiyana Jones, in the neck while she was sleeping on the family's couch. Detroit Police Officer Joseph Weekley (pictured below, right) is a 14-year veteran who has been on the response team for about six years, according to Assistant Chief Ralph Godbee. Godbee said Weekley was involved in one other shooting that involved a barricaded gunman last summer. Police didn't specify what his role was in the shooting, which was not fatal. The department determined that the officer acted appropriately. Officer Weekley, a member of the Detroit Police Special Response Team, was indicted on an involuntary manslaughter charge after a yearlong Michigan State Police investigation into the May 2010 death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones. He also faces a charge of careless discharge of a firearm causing death. An attorney representing the family of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was shot and killed by Detroit police during the raid, says he has evidence proving that the girl was shot through the top of the head, not through the neck as previously stated on her death certificate. According to Detroit media sources, the attorney said a preliminary autopsy conducted by Macomb County Medical Examiner Daniel Spitz, who Fieger retained, confirms that the bullet “perforates the scalp, right frontal lobe …” and exited “the anterior surface of the neck.” [See photo above.] Spitz’s report, passed out at a news conference, indicates Wayne County spokesman Dennis Niemiec confirmed that the county Medical Examiner’s Office changed the death certificate to indicate that Aiyana’s cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, not neck, after a conversation with Spitz.
Detroit police claim that an officer’s gun accidentally went off May 16 inside an east side Detroit home as officers searched for a 34-year-old murder suspect. Police have said the gun fired during a struggle with Aiyana’s grandmother. However, the attorney claims that a video of the event filmed by a TV crew tagging along shows that the officer fired a shot from outside the front door that struck Aiyana while she was sleeping on a living room couch. With Aiyana’s family seated with him, he showed reporters an animated version of what he believes occurred. “He shot purposely,” the attorney said of the officer. “I’m not suggesting that he knew what he was shooting at. I’m telling you that he pulled the trigger and fired into the house. It was not an accident.” David Balash, a retired firearms examiner for the Michigan State Police, was surprised by the findings. “How could you possibly miss that?” he said of the change in the death certificate. “A bullet entering the top of the head is not something you can miss. If they missed that, there is something dramatically wrong in the city of Detroit and county of Wayne.” Film crews from the A&E show “The First 48″ were on hand at the time of the shooting. The attorney has maintained that he viewed a separate video of the raid which shows the fatal shot came from the front porch after police tossed a flash-bang grenade through the front window. The attorney also called for other police officers to come forward and admit that there was no struggle and the fatal shot was fired from outside of the home. “My belief is that this is part of a significant cover-up,” he said. “Come forward and tell the truth.” May 22, 2010
"Why did the police do it to her?" -- Aiyana Jones' best friend, Roshell Johnson, 9, after Aiyana's funeral.
[A] middle-aged cop, a 7-year-old child (pictured left) Aiyana Jones, was shot in the neck while sleeping on a couch May 16. A stun grenade was also thrown through a window. "Do they throw these flash grenades in everybody's neighborhood? Would you have gone in Bloomfield Hills and did what you did?" Sharpton said, referring to a wealthy Detroit suburb. Outrage is building, where will it lead ? Members of the Detroit Police Special Response Team conducted a raid on the family home of Aiyana Jones, who was severely burned and then killed by an officer's bullet. She died Sunday. Civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton gave a rousing eulogy Saturday, May 21, 2010. Sharpton lobbed some criticism at Detroit police, whose explanation of how Aiyana Stanley-Jones died from a gunshot has been contradicted by the girl's family. "I'm disgusted when I look at a 7-year-old baby in a casket," Sharpton said during his eulogy. Calling law enforcement accounts "absurd," a Michigan attorney sued police Tuesday in the death of 7-year-old girl killed during a raid in Detroit. "This type of activity by a police force is unacceptable in America," Attorney Geoffrey Fieger said at a news conference in his office. "What is equally unacceptable is the cover-up that has occurred."Fieger filed both state and federal lawsuits alleging gross negligence, a violation of civil rights and a conspiracy to cover up the violation of civil rights. Roshell Johnson, 9, was wearing a shirt with a picture of Aiyana, her best friend. The funeral program said she liked Disney's "Hannah Montana" show and all the Disney princesses. "Why did the police do it to her?" Roshell said after the service. "I loved her so much. I want her to come back alive."
The most recent case began last Friday, May 14, when a 17-year-old high school student standing in front of a store in one of Detroit's bleakest neighborhoods was shot by a man twice his age for reasons that remain unclear. The boy, police said, stumbled across the street, collapsed and died. Then, shortly after midnight Sunday, Detroit police officers arrived at a two-story house not far away. With a warrant in hand, they planned to search the house for the 34-year-old suspect. Officers say they announced their presence and then tossed a flash grenade into the front window of one side of the duplex to disorient the people inside. Then, police say, officers entered the house, where a 46-year-old grandmother in the front room allegedly struggled with an officer. Next, police say, an officer's gun discharged, fatally shooting the woman's 7-year-old granddaughter Aiyana Stanley Jones. At a press conference Tuesday, defense attorney Geoffrey Fieger, who is representing Aiyana's family, offered this narrative: The flash grenade was thrown through the plate-glass window of the home's living room, apparently landing on Aiyana, who was sleeping with her grandmother on a sofa. Almost simultaneously, he said, a shot was fired into the house. The grandmother, Mertilla Jones, said Tuesday that as soon as the grenade shattered the window, she leaped to the floor. "I wanted to reach my granddaughter," Jones said, sobbing loudly. "I seen the light leave out her eyes, and I knew she was dead. She had blood coming out her mouth. Lord Jesus," Jones continued, "I ain't never seen nothing like that ... You can't trust Detroit police." Police officers, Fieger said, then rushed through the front door, which was unlocked. The day before, Fieger, who once represented Dr. Jack Kevorkian, claimed he had seen videotape of the incident filmed by a reality-TV crew that had accompanied the police. He alleged that police, moreover, may have raided the wrong side of the duplex, since the 34-year-old suspect was eventually arrested in another part of the building. Aiyana's death comes after five Detroit police officers were shot, one fatally, while investigating a reported break-in at one of Detroit's many abandoned buildings. The series of tragedies comes as Detroit officials have touted a drop in violent crime. Homicides decreased 25% in the first quarter of this year compared with 2009, and shootings and auto thefts are on the decline as well. Among the factors that may have helped are more stringent traffic stops, which apparently have picked up people carrying guns and lacking driver's licenses. On Monday, Detroit police asked Michigan's state police to investigate Aiyana's death, partly to avoid allegations of conflict of interest. The department, meanwhile, says it is seeking video footage of the incident from the TV crew that was with the police who arrived at the scenes of the shootings on Friday and Sunday. One of the many questions people in Detroit are asking: Why did police use a flash grenade? The device is intended to create a loud flash and bang to disorient potential suspects. Several years ago, New York City's police department began requiring authorization from its police chief to use the grenades. Now the grenades are rarely used, says Paul J. Browne, deputy commissioner of the NYPD. Detroit police officials say the grenades are used when officers believe there is a violent person nearby — in this case, a homicide suspect. The police department's top spokesman, John Roach, said there was evidence that weapons had been inside the home. But no actual weapons have been found. On Monday, a throng of people showed up at Aiyana's house for what seemed like an urban ritual, bearing teddy bears, brown-skinned Barbie dolls and balloons. One woman, Cora Mitchell, passed around a large photo of Aiyana blowing out candles at her sixth birthday party. "It's like the police, they're after us, and we can't take it anymore," Mitchell said, standing on the front porch of Aiyana's house. Her own son was fatally shot by police in April 2009, she said, near a gas station. Civil-rights leaders have decried Sunday's shooting as an act of police brutality in Detroit. Detroit Mayor Dave Bing was criticized for failing to publicly acknowledge the situation until his brief comments at a Monday press conference: "We've got a young 7-year-old kid that's been killed, and we all ought to be outraged at that." It's one of the biggest challenges facing Warren Evans, the police chief Bing hired last year. Evans, the former sheriff of Wayne County, is generally viewed as having solid relations with the community. This, no doubt, will be a test. Both the mayor and the police chief have asked for federal grants to put more police on the streets. Much of the city's outrage so far has been on media coverage of the crisis, which some residents feel is sensational. But the fact is, crime remains one of the biggest barriers to Detroit's turnaround aspirations. People will continue to flee if they don't feel it's safe to cook in their own kitchens.

Inglewood P.D. Kills Again!

March 23, 2010 The City of Inglewood (California) decided to pay $2.45 million to settle claims in connection to the shooting of several unarmed [black] men shot at by police. The claims to be settled include a payout to the family of Michael Byoune, a 19-year-old black man, who was shot and killed by Inglewood police May 11, 2008 in the 3000 block of Manchester Boulevard. Racist police officers claimed they mistakenly believed gunfire was coming from the vehicle the three were riding in, according to a tentative settlement. Michael Byoune died from his wounds, and driver Larry White and passenger Chris Larkin were injured in the shooting by Inglewood officers on May 11, 2008 (Mother's Day) outside a Rally's restaurant. Jacqueline Seabrooks, chief of the 190-member police department, described the incident at the time as "a very tragic outcome."

L.A.P.D. Kills Again!

March 21, 2010

Developmentally Disabled Man Killed!

Los Angeles Police officers shot and killed a man in Koreatown early Saturday morning after he reached into his waistband for what officers believed was a weapon, authorities said. Steven Eugene Washington (pictured below, left) 27, died from a single gunshot wound to the head shortly after midnight. Although no weapon was found, officers said they feared for their lives because Washington did not respond to their commands and appeared to be reaching for his waistband.

Portland P.D. Kills Again!

February 15, 2010 Portland, Ore. - The Rev. Jesse Jackson visited Portland on Tuesday in response to the police shooting of Aaron Campbell late last month, the Albina Ministerial Alliance announced Sunday. Campbell, an African-American male, who was unarmed, was shot and killed by Portland police officer Officer Ronald Frashour, who is white, on January 29, 2010. Campbell was shot in the back after emerging from an apartment with his hands over his head. He was reportedly distraught over the death of his brother earlier in the day. Frashour has said he thought Campbell was reaching toward his waistband for a weapon. Campbell died at the scene. James Jahar Akbar Perez was the third young, unarmed "black" American citizen to be murdered by Portland cops between 2002 and 2004. It was March 28, 2004, when a white Portland police officer, Jason Sery (pictured left) shot Mr. Perez three times after pulling him over for "failure to use a turn signal." Michael C. Schrunk has been the Multnomah County District Attorney since 1981. Being in office for 28 years and counting, Schrunk obviously believes he is above the law and can do whatever he wants, legal or otherwise. In 1997, an attorney from his office, David Peters, somehow escaped prosecution after cocaine was found in his home and after his name was in the "black book" of a known drug dealer. Schrunk's record when it comes to letting police officers off for murdering African-American citizens is the most troubling aspect of this character's career. Schrunk refused to file charges against Sery, just like he did when Portland Police officers Stephen Mosier and Christopher Gilbert murdered unarmed Byron Hammick back on February 22, 2002; and when Portland police officer Scott McCollister, on May 5, 2003, shot and killed unarmed, 21-year-old Kendra James.

Homer P.D. Kills Again!

2 White Cops, 1 Dead Black Man!

February 20, 2009
For 73 years before his killing by a white police officer, Bernard Monroe (pictured left) led a life in this little town as quiet as they come: five kids with his wife of five decades; all raised in the same house; and all supported by the same job. Rendered mute after losing his larynx to cancer, the 73-year-old retired power company lineman was in his usual spot on a mild Friday afternoon in February: A chair by the gate that led to his Adams Street home. A barbecue cooker smoked beside a picnic table in the yard as a dozen or so family members talked and played nearby. All seemed peaceful, until two white Homer police officers drove up.

Justifiable Homicide!

January 19, 2010 Oakland, CA - Oakland Police Officers Hector Jimenez, who was fired after shooting another unarmed black man to death in 2008, and Jessica Borello were justified in shooting 20-year-old Andrew Moppin-Buckskin at 47th Avenue and International Boulevard after he ran from his car following a traffic stop, U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled in Oakland. Moppin-Buckskin was not armed, but the officers believed he was reaching for his waistband when they opened fire, Jew Wilken said in a 15-page ruling Tuesday. "The undisputed evidence shows that Officers Jimenez and Borello acted reasonably when they used deadly force against Mr. Moppin," Wilken wrote. "The officers shot Mr. Moppin only after he failed to come toward them, as ordered, dropped his hands and then made a movement toward his waist area as though reaching for a weapon." Less than seven months after Moppin-Buckskin was killed, Jimenez fatally shot Mack "Jody" Woodfox III, 27, (pictured left, in casket) after stopping him on suspicion of drunken driving. Jimenez said he believed Woodfox had been reaching into his waistband for a gun when he jumped from his car and ran after a chase July 25, 2008, that ended at East 17th Street and Fruitvale Avenue in the Fruitvale district. Woodfox, who was shot in the back, turned out not to have a gun. The city settled a lawsuit filed by his family for $650,000. Jimenez was fired for Woodfox's shooting on the grounds that he had violated the Police Department's use-of-force policies, which stipulate that officers cannot fire on suspects who pose no threat. Jimenez is appealing his termination.

Penn State Police Kills Again!

March 15, 2009 Pennsylvania State Police kept Hassan (pictured left) on the job despite "extremely violent behavior" that has reportedly included confrontations with law enforcers, citizens, and even a superior when he was in the military. Online records show that Hassan was a Marine sharpshooter who enlisted in 1993. His discharge records were not available. Nassan left the military "without an honorable discharge" after he inflicted head injuries on a high-ranking officer. "Unfortunately Sam Nassan was involved with his second shooting," Cpl. Linette Quinn said. "That's a lot to take on. That's kind of unique for a police officer to be involved in a situation like that." Nassan should have been fired for one incident alone: the Michael Ellerbe shooting on Christmas Eve 2002. The shooting was ruled justified by Pennsylvania State law enforcement authorities.

The Michael Ellerbe Killing

Police said that Michael Ellerbe, age 12 (pictured left) was driving a stolen SUV and that Nassan and another trooper chased the boy after it crashed. Nassan testified he shot the unarmed boy in the back because his partner's gun snagged on a fence and fired, leading Nassan to believe Ellerbe had shot his partner. A jury rejected Nassan's version, ruling that both troopers purposely shot Ellerbe in the back and that the state police covered it up. The federal jury in Pittsburgh found last March that Nassan and Cpl. Juan Curry fired at the boy as he ran from a stolen sport utility vehicle the troopers were chasing. Ellerbe didn't have a gun and the family's attorney argued the troopers knew that all along. The same federal court jury in Pittsburgh last year (2008) delivered a $28 million civil rights verdict. The police appealed before settling for $12.5 million in November (2008) - by far the most the state police have ever paid in a wrongful shooting case.

B.A.R.T. P.D. Kills Again!

January 1, 2009 The BART Police shooting of Oscar Grant (pictured left) was a fatal shooting in Oakland, California, United States, in the early morning hours of New Year's Day 2009. Responding to reports of a fight on a crowded BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) train returning from San Francisco, several BART Police officers detained Grant and several other passengers on the platform at the Fruitvale BART Station. Officer Johannes Mehserle and another officer were restraining Grant, who was prostrate and subjecting himself to arrest arrest. Officer Mehserle stood, drew his gun and shot Grant once in the back. Grant turned out to be unarmed. Grant was pronounced dead at 9:13 am the next morning at Highland Hospital in Oakland. The events were captured on multiple digital and cell phone cameras. The footage was disseminated to media outlets and to various websites, where it was watched hundreds of thousands of times. The following days saw both peaceful and violent protests.

N.Y.P.D. Kills Again!

November 25, 2006 To most casual observers, the deadly New York City Police shooting of Sean Bell (pictured left) a 23-year-old African American, in the early morning hours of his wedding day seemed an open-and-shut case. Everyone agreed that there was no crime in Bell's attending his bachelor party in the early morning hours of Nov. 25, 2006 with his friends at the Club Kalua strip club in South Jamaica, Queens, and that he and his friends Trent Benefield and Joseph Guzman were not armed when they tried to drive away from the scene, about a block from the bar, after the undercover officers approached them and opened fire, killing Bell in a barrage of 50 bullets. But those who monitored the case closely from the beginning saw no reason for surprise that the three detectives, Michael Oliver, Gescard Isnora and Marc Cooper, were acquitted of all charges. The detectives chose to have a bench trial instead of one by jury, which many will argue slanted the case in their favor from the beginning. During the eight-week trial, dozens of witnesses were called by the prosecution, and many gave incongruent testimony, Brown admitted at a press conference after the verdict. For example, where shooting victim Joseph Guzman testified that Bell spoke to him just moments before he died, a medical examiner testified the shots destroyed Bell's ability to speak. Bell's other passenger, Trent Benefield, testified that he was shot in the legs twice while running away from Bell's Nissan Altima, but a crime scene analyst proved that he was seated when the bullets hit him. (A nun calls police officers "murderers" after hearing the not guilty verdict in the case against three detectives during the Sean Bell trial, outside the Queens County Courthouse in New York April 25, 2008.) None of it came as a surprise to community policing advocates like Noel Leader, the co-founder of 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care. In fact, in his view, the case should never have been pursued by Brown at all. "We've been critical from day one," said Leader, who is also a retired New York police sergeant. "We called for a special prosecutor when the incident first occurred. We pointed out many erroneous positions taken by the D.A.'s office. We're disappointed, and angry, but we're not surprised." Leader claimed there was sufficient evidence to prove that the officers acted incorrectly, but that the prosecution failed by not calling an expert witness to speak to the New York Police Department's rules on the justification for the use of deadly force. "There are strict regulations as to when an officer can discharge a weapon," he said. "There was enough to get a conviction, but because of the relationship between the D.A. and the NYPD, we have no confidence in them at all." Bell's death was New York City's second high-profile fatal police shooting in the last decade. In 1999, four Bronx policemen were acquitted in the death of Amadou Diallo, an Guinean immigrant who was also unarmed when cops opened fire on him. Since then, civil rights activists concerned about a compromised relationship between the local district attorney's office and the police department have called for special prosecutors to be used instead to handle such sensitive cases of police misconduct. "The solution is independent prosecutors; the only way you will get a sense of disinterest in the criminal justice system is to have state prosecutors," said Michael Meyers, executive director of the New York Civil Rights Coalition. "I have not seen yet an effective local prosecution where a person has died as a result of a questionable police shooting." In fact, the only time in New York City when a police officer was actually convicted in the shooting death of an innocent civilian was in the 2003 death of Ousmane Zongo, an immigrant who was unarmed when police shot him in a Chelsea warehouse counterfeiting raid. The police later admitted Zongo had no connection to the counterfeiters, and one officer was convicted of criminally negligent homicide, though he was sentenced to just five years' probation. Other municipalities have called special prosecutors in police shooting cases. For instance, in a January incident in Lima, Ohio, in which a 26-year-old woman was shot and killed and her 14-month-old son was wounded in a SWAT raid, a special prosecutor was appointed by state Attorney General Marc Dann. In Crawford, Neb., a special prosecutor was also appointed by a district judge to investigate the October police shooting of a 16-year-old boy in an abandoned bar. Both cases are pending. Meyers said that early on it looked like the prosecution was in trouble because of its reliance on non-credible and often contradictory witnesses. He blames the relationship that Brown's office has with the police department. In the press conference, Brown admitted that his office does, in fact, work closely with the NYPD, further buttressing Meyers frustration that there is no state special prosecutor. "The civil rights community has been calling for years for this," he said, "but you don't have any leadership on the part of the governors of New York State."

Atlanta P.D. Kills Again!

Corrupt Killer Cops

Ex-Alanta Police Officer Arthur Tessler (pictured below, right) in May 2008 court proceeding. An appeals court on [January 15, 2009] overturned the conviction of a former Atlanta police officer sentenced to prison for lying to FBI agents about the killing of a 92-year-old woman during a botched drug raid. Kathryn Johnston (pictured below, left), a 92 year old black woman, was shot 39 times as plainclothes Atlanta narcotics officers broke into her home on Nov. 26, 2006. The warrant was obtained using false information and the officers involved planted evidence afterward to cover up their lies. In tossing out Arthur Tesler's conviction on the state charges, the Georgia Court of Appeals said Fulton County prosecutors failed to prove where the lying took place. "Its admitted failure requires us to reverse Tesler's conviction," Chief Judge Yvette Miller wrote. A Fulton County Superior Court judge sentenced Tesler to 4 1/2 years in prison and six months probation last May. Tesler has also pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges.
