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

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

New York, NY {PUBLISHED: March 6, 2017 at 12:50 pm | UPDATED: August 24, 2017 at 01:53 am} -- The New York health department alerted doctors to the case of a newborn who fell ill after undergoing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish practice in which the circumcision wound is cleaned by the Rabbi's mouth. The baby boy was rushed to hospital when he developed herpes following the controversial ancient circumcision ritual. A rash is said to have spread across the child’s genitals, buttocks, inner thighs and ankle two weeks after the procedure. An estimated 3,000 babies are circumcised each year using the method in New York City. NYC is home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. There have been six cases of herpes among children who have had the ritual known as metzitzah b’peh performed on them since February 2015. Of the six previously undisclosed cases, two occurred last year and three in 2015. Herpes, a highly contagious viral disease which can cause blisters and ulcers. Herpes is more severe in newborn babies as their immune systems are not fully developed. Since 2000, there have been 24 cases of infant herpes linked to circumcision, leading to two deaths and two cases of brain damage.


(Published: Thurs., April 13, 2017) — On Monday, Nandi Cain Jr. had just gotten off work and was headed to his Sacramento apartment when he noticed an officer approaching from behind him with his hand on his gun, according to police accounts, videos of the event and local news reports. Cain put his hands up as the officer approached, but continued to walk away slowly. He asked the police officer the reason for the stop, then protested when he heard it: “You were jaywalking,” the officer said on the dash-cam video released by the police department this week. “I looked both ways,” Cain replied. “You’re harassing me. I just got off work. You’re trying to pull me over for nothing.” Click here for video

Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap. Guap is the daughter of a Oakland police dispatcher. The police investigation will look at whether Guap was under age during some of the encounters with officers. (Click here for video)


New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)


Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired. The car belonged to a woman named Lakeya Hicks, who had the paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. Hicks’ tags weren’t expired, and a check on her license came up clean. However, the cops didn’t let her go. (Click here for video)

Pink housing projects in the East New York section of Brooklyn. Jury selection in the case was completed last week. Gurley died more than 14 months ago, on November 20, 2014, as two cops were making a “vertical patrol,” checking the stairwells in the high-rise building. 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)

A History of Drug Dealing Cops! - Part III - 2011

May 15, 2011


Seattle, WA (WCJB) – The Justice Department has launched an investigation into whether Seattle police have used excessive force — particularly against minorities — in the wake of several controversial beatings and shootings, one of which resulted in a homeless woodcarver's death, officials said. The American Civil Liberties Union of Washington and other community groups called for an inquiry after more than a year of high-profile incidents, including the death of John T. Williams, a partially deaf Native American who was shot and killed in downtown Seattle in August after failing to drop his 3-inch carving knife. The officer who shot him has resigned. That followed the videotaped beating in April of a Latino robbery suspect, whom a gang detective kicked while threatening to beat the "Mexican piss" out of him, and a confrontation in June in which an officer punched a 17-year-old African American girl in the face when she protested the arrest of her friend for jaywalking.

See: Criminal Cops! - 2012 - Part VI (Lombardi Pleads Guilty!)

OAKLAND, CA -- A former San Ramon police officer accused of stealing drugs, cash and guns as part of a law enforcement corruption scandal was released on bond from federal custody Tuesday, two weeks after he was arrested on unrelated charges of domestic battery. Louis Lombardi, 39 (pictured above, center) appeared in Oakland federal court, where his parents posted a $500,000 bond. The 25-minute hearing in front of magistrate Judge Donna Ryu confirmed that Lombardi, a former agent with the Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team, had been arrested and charged by federal authorities in connection with the investigation that has yielded the indictment of his former commander, Norman Wielsch, and Concord private investigator Christopher Butler. Federal court documents related to Lombardi have remained under seal.

Lombardi's attorney declined to discuss his client's role in the federal investigation. He said outside the courtroom that he was happy that Lombardi had been released after spending two weeks in jail. "I'm pleased that the judge, after having the opportunity to more thoroughly review the facts, determined that Louis Lombardi was neither a flight risk nor a danger to the community," Lombardi's attorney said. Federal authorities had placed a hold on Lombardi after he was arrested Sept. 13 in connection with an alleged domestic battery incident at his Discovery Bay home. The move resulted in an unusually high bail amount of $1 million. Lombardi allegedly punched holes in the wall of his home and made threats to hurt himself and his fiancee. Ryu described the incident as "pretty scary."

Lombardi's fiancee, parents and several other family members were in the gallery Tuesday to support the former officer. His attorney said the fiancee called the Contra Costa County district attorney's office shortly after the incident and asked prosecutors not to press charges. "No one was injured, no one was hurt," the attorney said.

In addition to the federal corruption case, Lombardi is facing state allegations that he stole drugs, cash and guns that police had seized. Contra Costa County prosecutors say Lombardi sold seized marijuana to informants he had met through his narcotics work and planned to operate a marijuana grow house. Lombardi pleaded not guilty and remained free on $500,000 bail until his most recent arrest. He resigned from the San Ramon Police Department in May. As a condition of Lombardi's release, Ryu ordered him to live with his parents. The couple will act as "the eyes and ears of the court" and are required to report any violations of their son's bail or face contempt-of-court charges, the judge said. "It's actually your responsibility to tell on him," Ryu said.

DISCOVERY BAY, CA -- A former San Ramon officer tied to a high-profile Contra Costa police corruption scandal is in jail again after a domestic-violence arrest this week, the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office said. Louis Lombardi, 39, was arrested Tuesday night at his home on Willow Lake Road, said sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee. Deputies took Lombardi into custody on suspicion of making criminal threats, a felony, and misdemeanor spousal battery. Lombardi was booked into County Jail in Martinez, where he remains on $1 million bail. His attorney, Dirk Manoukian, said the circumstances are not as severe as they appear.

"I can't comment specifically on very many of the details, but I can tell you no one was injured and there are no allegations anyone was injured," Manoukian said. "We're hopeful when all the facts are known that the allegations will be handled appropriately." Lombardi (pictured left) had been free on bail after his May 4 arrest on charges he sold drugs to informants and took cash, drugs and guns from police seizures. Authorities say the crimes occurred while he was on the Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team, known as CNET, headed by Norman Wielsch, who was ousted as commander.



Federal authorities are now prosecuting Wielsch and former Concord private investigator Christopher Butler, who police say were the ringleaders of a scheme that began with trafficking drugs stolen from evidence lockers and grew to include allegations of phony arrests and prostitution.

Accused co-conspirators Lombardi and former Danville Officer Stephen Tanabe have been charged locally but have avoided federal prosecution.

Lombardi faces the following charges:

•» Accessory/Aiding and Abetting
•» Conspiracy
•» Grand Theft (weapons)
•» Possession of stolen property (guns, ID, illegal drugs); and
•» Possession of an Illegal Assault Rifle.

The most recent arrest has added the following charges:

•» Suspicion of making criminal threats, a felony; and
•» Misdemeanor spousal battery.

Slangin'-N-Leandro

Updated: 05/21/2011 04:50:46 PM PDT


SAN LEANDRO, CA -- A narcotics detective has been charged with transporting and furnishing marijuana to a confidential informant for sale, authorities said. Jason Fredriksson, 38, surrendered to authorities on a $50,000 warrant Friday at the Hayward Hall of Justice, San Leandro police Chief Sandra Spagnoli said.

Fredriksson, (an alleged Drug-Dealer, pictured left) a member of San Leandro's vice and narcotics unit since 2008, had been under criminal investigation by the police department and the Alameda County District Attorney's Office since March 18, when a San Leandro resident "personally notified" the police chief that the drug detective was involved in criminal activity, Spagnoli said. Five days later, authorities searched Fredriksson's Danville home and found items that supported the charge against him, police said.

Investigators found that Fredriksson provided more than one pound of marijuana to a confidential informant -- a woman with whom he had a personal relationship -- for her to sell, Spagnoli said. The police department is investigating whether his relationship with the informant was improper. Authorities also are investigating whether the marijuana given to the informant once was evidence or if it might have been taken from the police department's lab. "We're working to find out where the marijuana was obtained," Spagnoli said.

The department also has launched an ongoing internal investigation into the felony charge filed against Fredriksson. Since March 21, he has been placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation, Spagnoli said. His wife, Sheryll Fredriksson, is a San Leandro police employee and a previous winner of the department's Dispatcher of the Year award. She has not been charged, but she has been placed on administrative leave until the internal investigation is completed, Spagnoli said. San Leandro police said they could not comment on the internal investigation while it is ongoing.

Jason Fredriksson, a graduate of San Ramon Valley High School, has been a San Leandro officer for nine years. From 2000 to 2002, he was an Alameda County sheriff's deputy, which included a work assignment at the Glenn E. Dyer jail in Oakland, sheriff's spokesman Sgt. J.D. Nelson said.

Fredriksson's case somewhat mirrors corruption charges filed recently against several narcotics officers in the now-suspended Contra Costa County Narcotics Enforcement Team, or CNET. Authorities said Friday that they have no evidence connecting Fredriksson to that criminal probe. "We believe that Detective Fredriksson was acting alone and not with anyone with the San Leandro Police Department or with any police agency, local or federal," Spagnoli said.

Fredriksson's attorney, who is also representing San Ramon police Officer Louis Lombardi, a former CNET officer arrested May 4, 2011 on suspicion of a number of offenses, including stealing guns, selling drugs and embezzlement. Phone and email messages left for this attorney on Friday were not returned.

PLEASANT HILL, CA -- The former commander of a law enforcement task force in Contra Costa County robbed prostitutes whose operations were competing with his own brothel in Pleasant Hill, his co-defendant in a drug theft case told investigators. The former commander, ex-state Department of Justice agent Norman Wielsch, said prostitutes and drug dealers deserved to have their money stolen, said Christopher Butler, a private eye in Concord and Wielsch's former colleague on the Antioch police force. In a 34-page narrative that he wrote for investigators detailing his alleged criminal exploits and obtained by media sources, Butler also said a woman accused of prostitution had told him that she had sex with Wielsch in exchange for having charges against her reduced.

In 2009, at Wielsch's suggestion, the woman helped the task force commander and private eye set up a massage parlor on Gregory Lane in Pleasant Hill that fronted for a brothel, Butler said. Wielsch, 50, and Butler, 49, were charged in February with stealing drugs from evidence lockers in Contra Costa and selling them.

Chris Butler & Associates: Valentine's Sting (Feb 5, 2009)!
Wielsch's attorney, did not return a call Friday seeking comment. On Thursday, after Butler's lawyer said Wielsch had been the brains behind the alleged Pleasant Hill brothel, Wielsch's attorney said the private eye was a liar who was angling to reduce his own prison time and "would rat out his mother and father if he had to." In his March 17, 2011 statement to Contra Costa prosecutors and state investigators, Butler said Wielsch had hired him as a confidential informant and brought him along for raids on prostitutes who worked out of hotels or apartments. He wrote that Wielsch, who headed the multiagency Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team, told him that the task force had to start raiding massage parlors in November 2009 after the mayor of Pleasant Hill was solicited across the street from City Hall. Targeted Asians Wielsch preferred raiding operations with Asian women "because they could be easily bullied into shutting down," Butler said. When he staged the raids, Wielsch would walk away with the prostitutes' cash, in one case putting it in a grocery bag, Butler said. "Wielsch told me that by taking their cash, condoms and cell phones, it would make a serious dent" in the prostitutes' operations, Butler wrote. "However, I understood that Wielsch was robbing the prostitutes." Butler said he and Wielsch had taken part in at least five such robberies. At the same time, the men were running their own brothel on Gregory Lane, Butler said. He said Wielsch had him act as the bag man for the brothel, making weekly pickups of $250 to $500 in cash from each woman, the amount they paid to work at the massage parlor. Laughing about theft Butler said the idea for the brothel grew out of a May 2009 meeting with Wielsch and San Ramon police Officer Louis Lombardi at a Pleasant Hill barbecue restaurant, where he said the two officers laid out plans to make money through drug dealing and prostitution. The men also laughed at the prospect of stealing from narcotics and brothel raids, Butler wrote. "Wielsch and Lombardi both joked about how they would routinely steal any cash found during these raids," Butler wrote. Both men "remarked how these criminals deserved to have their money stolen and how these criminals deserved whatever Wielsch and Lombardi did to them." Lombardi, 38, was charged earlier this month with working with Butler and Wielsch to sell stolen drugs and embezzle cash connected to narcotics investigations. He appeared in court Friday but did not enter a plea. Wielsch, said the private eye, "remarked how one recent massage parlor bank account containing $170,000 was seized" by the Contra Costa anti-crime task force. The desire for such cash, Butler wrote, led the men to hatch a plan to open the Pleasant Hill brothel. Butler's attorney said Thursday that the massage parlor at 670 Gregory Lane produced disappointing returns and closed sometime last year. A veiled threat Butler wrote that one night in 2010, Lombardi, who worked for Wielsch on the county task force, warned Butler to keep quiet about the illicit operations. "Lombardi showed me his San Ramon PD badge and a .22 revolver," Butler wrote. "I asked why he was carrying a revolver. Lombardi replied, 'Because it doesn't make much noise and the bullet will bounce around inside you and f- you up bad." Lombardi's attorney did not respond to messages Friday. According to Butler's account, his first dealings with Wielsch came after he left the Antioch Police Department in 1997 and became a private investigator. He said he often paid Wielsch to hand over information from the Department of Motor Vehicles on men he was investigating. Wielsch demanded cash payments at the task force's Pleasant Hill headquarters, Butler said. In late 2009, Butler said, Wielsch told him he would no longer charge for the DMV information if Butler sold drugs for him. 'Dirty DUI' Butler also provided details to investigators on one of his "dirty DUIs," drunken-driving arrests he allegedly arranged with police officers on behalf of women who were angry with their husbands and wanted to get them in trouble. He said he had arranged one such arrest at the request of an Oakland woman who told him she was dying of breast cancer. The woman "advised that one of the things she wanted to do before she died was to make sure the father of her child got help for his serious drinking problem," Butler wrote. He added, "I told (the woman) that the only police officer I knew who would pull over a possible drunk driver for me was in Danville." Butler wrote that the officer, Contra Costa sheriff's Deputy Stephen Tanabe, "advised me ... that he wanted to be compensated $200 for his time and efforts." Tanabe is charged along with Butler with making false arrests. He has pleaded not guilty and resigned from the Sheriff's Office. His attorney did not respond to a phone message Friday.

'CoCo DIRT & DUI's!'

Posted: 05/04/2011 04:06:22 PM PDT Updated: 05/06/2011 11:38:11 AM PDT SAN RAMON, CA -- A San Ramon police officer was arrested Wednesday on five felony charges in connection with the ongoing investigation into the Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team. Patrol Officer Louis Lombardi, 38, was arrested by his colleagues as he arrived at work Wednesday morning, CNET board chairman and San Ramon police Chief Scott Holder said. "I've known him for many years and it's a sad day for all of us, but we are going to get through this," Holder said. Lombardi was arrested on suspicion of aiding and abetting, conspiracy, grand theft, possession of stolen property, and possession of an illegal assault rifle. A search warrant was executed Wednesday at Lombardi's Discovery Bay home. He said Lombardi's bail has been set at $760,000. Lombardi was still at County Jail in Martinez on Wednesday night, according to a jail worker. Holder would not provide other details concerning the arrest, citing the investigation. He has been a San Ramon officer since the city formed its Police Department in 2007, and before that Lombardi had been a sheriff's deputy since 1998.
A probe into Lombardi was launched March 15, 2011, about a month after former CNET commander Norman Wielsch and private investigator Christopher Butler were arrested on suspicion of stealing and selling drug evidence and authorities suspended the state Department of Justice program indefinitely. Butler is also charged with conspiracy for a scam in which prosecutors say he set up his clients' divorcing spouses to be arrested on drunken-driving charges by hiring women to ply them with alcohol on fake dates. Former Danville Officer Stephen Tanabe has been charged in connection with both the DUI and drug sales conspiracies. All three men have pleaded not guilty. Holder would not say if Lombardi is suspected of participating in the DUI scheme, the drug sales or both. Lombardi was assigned as a CNET agent from 2005 to 2009, and formed a relationship with Butler through his friendship with Wielsch, Holder said.

'Dirty DUI!'

May 4, 2011 (Chris Butler, pictured above, center) A Concord private eye at the center of a Contra Costa County law enforcement scandal admitted that he hired female decoys to drink with men he was targeting in stings that led to their drunken-driving arrests, according to a transcript of his interview with detectives. Chris Butler, 49, a former Antioch police officer, made the statements during a nine-hour interrogation with detectives from the Contra Costa County district attorney's office and state Department of Justice. Authorities arrested Butler on Feb. 16, 2011 as part of an investigation into Norman Wielsch, a former commander of a state anti-narcotics unit who allegedly stole confiscated drugs from evidence lockers and passed them on to Butler, a close friend. He also told the detectives that clients had been referred to him by a San Ramon attorney who represented women in divorce cases - women who wanted videotaped evidence that their husbands were cheating. Although he directed the decoys to drink with the men at bars, Butler said he had never promised clients that the night would end with a DUI arrest. "It all centered around the introduction of the decoy to the subject," Christopher Butler said, according to a partial transcript of the March 17 interview obtained by media sources. "It had to be what I referred to as seamless. ... And it shows that, yeah, I was very careful in how these things went down. No one just plowed into a bar, called the guy and said, 'Hey, meet me at this bar and let's go drinking.' " "As I would tell all my clients ... if he's in the bar and he drinks, he's going to drink, I said, I will always say that there's no guarantee he's going to drive," Butler told detectives. "You know, he can call a cab, he can call a friend." In one instance, a disgruntled wife paid him $2,500 to "obtain irrefutable proof" that her husband "was actively seeking other women," Butler said in a statement he gave to investigators. In all, prosecutors suspect Butler orchestrated stings that led to the arrests of at least five Bay Area men. According to Butler's written statement, one "successful sting resulting in a DUI" was set in motion Dec. 3, 2008, when Susan Dutcher, a Brentwood elementary school teacher, walked into his Concord office and paid him a $2,500 retainer. Butler said Dutcher was the second referral he had received from Mary Nolan, a San Ramon divorce attorney. Husband given transcript Hal Jewett, Contra Costa's senior deputy district attorney, provided the statement and interrogation transcript to the woman's former husband last month and told him in a cover letter that he considered the man's drunken-driving arrest "one of the most deplorable legal practices I have ever heard of." Butler's attorney said the transcript and the private eye's one-page written statement that outlined the man's 2008 sting was not an admission of guilt. "It was not criminal conduct," he said. "Now, is it an unseemly kind of investigation process? I think the answer is 'yes.' And I think Mr. Butler is aware of that now." Connections probed (Stephen Tanabe, pictured above, center) As the investigation has progressed, Butler's tactics and his connections to Bay Area law enforcement officers have also come under scrutiny. On April 21, Butler pleaded not guilty to charges that he bribed a Contra Costa deputy sheriff, Stephen Tanabe, 47, to arrange the November drunken-driving arrest of a man outside a Danville bar. Tanabe, a friend of Butler's, denied the bribe allegations and also pleaded not guilty to felony charges that he had conspired to falsely arrest two additional men at Butler's request. A reserve sheriff's deputy told investigators that Tanabe nicknamed the practice a "dirty DUI" - an arranged arrest designed to give the target a criminal record as he was embroiled in divorce or child-custody proceedings. Butler told investigators that women hired him to obtain evidence of their husbands' infidelity. He said he produced that evidence by enlisting decoys to approach the men through online dating sites and seemingly random public encounters. A 'successful sting' In the first referral, Butler said he was "contracted" by Nolan to conduct a July 2007 sting on Declan Woods, 46, a contractor in Clayton who was in the midst of divorcing one of Nolan's clients. Butler said he had been paid $1,500 - although he did not make it clear if he was paid by Nolan or Woods' ex-wife - to hire two female decoys to approach Woods and drink with him at his local bar. Butler told investigators he paid the female decoys $25 an hour with a four-hour minimum for their work. After the decoys suggested Woods follow them home to Walnut Creek for more partying, Butler called Clayton police dispatch and gave a description of Woods' truck, which resulted in Woods' DUI arrest. Butler said he had videotaped Woods being handcuffed and put into a squad car, and that Nolan was "thrilled" with the visual evidence. Nolan did not respond to e-mail and phone messages. The setup The sting of Susan Dutcher's estranged husband, David Dutcher, proceeded in much the same fashion, Butler told detectives. He said he had hired a blond decoy to contact the Lockheed Martin engineer through match.com. The woman made a date to meet Dutcher, then 46, at the Old Spaghetti Factory in downtown Concord and invited a second blond decoy to join them, Butler said. "I didn't know if he was going to be attracted" to the first decoy, Butler said. "Maybe he wouldn't be attracted to them at all. I had no idea." Butler told investigators he had sat at a nearby table and recorded the three drinking alcohol, which the first decoy paid for. As the 10 p.m. closing time neared, Butler said, one of his decoys alerted him that Dutcher wanted to drink at another bar. Butler said he had called a friend on the Concord police force, Officer Don Lawson. According to Butler's website, Lawson worked as his investigation firm's identity theft expert, and the two men grew up together. "I said, 'We got a case here where, you know, this guy, we're watching him at the bar and I think he's over the limit. ... Where are you?' " Butler told investigators. Lawson replied that he was about to go off-duty, but agreed not to after Butler told him, " 'Wait five, 10 minutes for me, please, because I think this guy is going to drive,' " Butler told the detectives. The arrest Lawson arrested Dutcher less than 2 miles away for DUI as Dutcher followed the convertible carrying the two blond decoys. In his police report on the arrest, Lawson did not say Butler or anyone else had alerted him to a drunken driver on the road. Instead, Lawson wrote that he had seen Dutcher's truck at a stoplight on Clayton Road, then pulled it over after the driver broke the speed limit. Investigators asked Butler whether he had paid Lawson, Concord's two-time Officer of the Year, to make the arrest. "No, (Lawson) was not compensated," Butler replied. "I swear to God. I'll get on a polygraph. He was not compensated for that." Lawson, who retired in 2009, did not respond to phone and e-mail messages seeking comment. Back to court David Dutcher said he plans to submit the interview transcript and Butler's statement to a divorce court judge as proof that he unfairly lost custody of his three children because of his drunken-driving conviction. His former wife did not respond to requests for an interview. Dutcher said he had always held suspicions about the events that led to his arrest, but that reading Butler's statements had made him sick. "You learn your wife paid for this kind of stuff and that her attorney was in on it?" Dutcher said. "And I lost my kids over it? Guess they were all laughing at me for a long time. ... Wonder how they feel now."

'Hollywood DIRTY DUI's!'

Jul 30, 2009 After a Hollywood [Florida] police officer rear-ended a car in February and then arrested the driver on drunken driving charges, he and other officers talked about doctoring the report--it said a jumpy cat created a distraction--to cover up the crash. The exchange was recorded by a dashboard camera in one of the patrol cars. The officers apparently didn't realize it was on. Alexandra Gabriela Torrensvilas, 23, of Hollywood, ended up charged with four counts of drunken driving and cited for improper lane change. "I don't want to make things up ever, because it's wrong, but if I need to bend it a little bit to protect a cop, I'm gonna," one of the officers can be heard saying.
"We'll do a little Walt Disney to protect the cop because it wouldn't have mattered because she is drunk anyway." On Tuesday, Hollywood police officials placed Officer Dewey Pressley, 42, Officer Joel Francisco, 36, Sgt. Andrew Diaz, 39; and civilian Community Service Officer Karim Thomas, age unavailable; on administrative duty pending an internal affairs investigation and a review by the Broward State Attorney's Office, said spokesman Lt. Scott Pardon. Francisco was driving the car in the crash; Pressley wrote the report and made the arrest. Pressley's report detailing the Feb. 17 midnight crash in the 2800 block of Sheridan Street said "a large gray stray cat" that had been sitting on Torrensvila's lap jumped out of her car window and distracted her, causing her to veer into Francisco's lane, where she abruptly braked, and he hit her. "I will do the narrative for you," one of the officers says on the tape. "I know how I am going to word this, the cat gets him off the hook." Torrensvilas' attorney said this is a disturbing "abuse of power." "Actually seeing it transpire on video in front of you, it really kind of sickens you," he said. "It's really nauseating to sit there and watch your client's rights go out the window." Torrensvilas' four DUI charges carry a maximum penalty of nearly three years in jail, Meltzer said. He declined to say what will become of her case: "In my opinion, as of this time, it's being handled appropriately." A spokesman for the Broward State Attorney's Office declined to comment on the case or how it will proceed. Pressley, a 21-year veteran with the agency, wrote that when Francisco approached Torrensvilas' car after the crash, she blurted: "It just jumped out." The "it" was "a large, gray stray cat" that had been sitting on her lap while she drove, the report said. Francisco, who has been with the agency for nearly 11 years, smelled "a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage." Public Defender Howard Finkelstein on Tuesday sent a letter to Hollywood Police Chief Chadwick Wagner calling for answers and accountability. "Not only did these officers make a conscious decision to shift the blame to this young woman, but they made a concerted effort to write a narrative to fit 'their facts,' " Finkelstein wrote. He said his office has at least 27 pending cases in which these four officers are listed as material state witnesses. Pardon, the police department's spokesman, declined to respond to the allegations. "We'll see where the investigation goes," he said.

Brotherly Drugs!

May 10, 2011 For the second day in a row, a former Philadelphia police officer was sentenced to prison for a scheme to steal and resell heroin. Robert Snyder, 30 (pictured left) who became a police officer in March, 2007, will serve 13 years in prison. He was one of three officers arrested last year in connection with the heroin plot. He was also charged and pleaded guilty to his role in plotting a planned armed robbery. Snyder also admitted to plotting to rob a supposed Mafia cash courier. His wife, Christal, will be sentenced Monday for her role in organizing the scheme with her sister's boyfriend, Angel Ortiz, a drug dealer. She faces a 10 year sentence. Ortiz will be sentenced this week. Both have pleaded guilty. More than a dozen friends and family were in court, and Christal Snyder bowed her head as her husband spoke. Snyder sobbed in the courtroom as he expressed remorse and regret that the couple's three children will be without their parents for 10 years. Who will care for the children, - ages 11, 7 and 3 - was not discussed in court. Defense attorneys argued for a 10-year sentence, but U.S. District Court Chief Judge Harvey Bartle III cited Snyder's betrayal of his oath as a police officer. Snyder, who was left by his mother when he was 17 - she moved back to Kentucky to remarry - worked five years as a custodian at a downtown office building before becoming an officer. "He was making significantly more money," Spade wrote in a sentencing memo. "By his own admission, Mr. Snyder did not need the relatively small amount of money he received as payment for his crimes." Monday, 10-year veteran James Venziale was sentenced to 42 months in jail for his role in the scheme. Both men had pleaded guilty. The third officer, Mark Williams, was convicted at trial and has not yet been sentenced. July 13, 2010 Three Philadelphia police officers have been charged with planning the theft of 300 grams of heroin from an alleged drug supplier and then selling it to another person they believed to be a drug dealer and money launderer who, in actuality, was a DEA special agent. "I'm personally pissed off about this kind of behavior," Mayor Nutter said at a news conference at police headquarters this afternoon. "We do not employ criminals. That's what they are. That's how they will be treated." Robert Snyder, 30, of the 25th Police District; Mark Williams, 27 (pictured left) and James Venziale, 32, both of the 39th District, were charged with conspiracy to distribute heroin and related counts, U.S. Attorney Zane Memeger announced today. The scheme was hatched in April 20, when Venziale met with reputed drug dealer Angel "Fat Boy" Ortiz near the North Philadelphia Amtrak station, according to the indictment. Venziale and Ortiz discussed a plan to steal, with the illegal assistance of Philadelphia police officers, 300 grams of heroin from Miguel Santiago, the indictment states. According to the indictment, the officers and fellow conspirators believed the heroin they stole from Santiago would be sold for further distribution to the undercover agent, who they believed to be a drug dealer and money launderer. The officers met at various times during the next weeks with Ortiz and another reputed drug dealer, Zachary Young. The plan called for officers to perform a staged vehicle stop to make it appear to Santiago that the drugs were seized by law enforcement, the indictment states On May 14, Williams and Venziale (pictured left) were on duty and in uniform when they stopped a car occupied by Ortiz and the undercover agent. A courier working for Santiago, who had just delivered 299 grams of heroin to Ortiz, was nearby and watching, the indictment states. Williams and Venziale handcuffed Ortiz and allowed the other man to drive off with 299 grams of heroin. Williams and Venziale then drove Ortiz in their cruiser to Broad and Lehigh where they released him, the indictment states. Later, Ortiz met with Williams and Venziale near Broad St. and Hunting Park Ave. where Ortiz paid the officers $6,000, the indictment states. Ortiz also met with Christal Snyder and gave her an unknown amount of cash, the indictment states.

Bite the Bullitt!

May 6, 2011 A Bullitt County corrections officer has been suspended without pay following his Thursday morning arrest in Shively. Eric Risen, 26, of Brooks, was charged with four counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and disregarding a traffic signal, Shively police said. He was released on his own recognizance and will be arraigned in court early next week, according to jail records. Shively Police Detective Josh Myers said an officer stopped Risen (pictured above, center) after he allegedly ran a red light at Dixie Highway and Garrs Lane about 4:30 a.m. Thursday. Risen “seemed extremely nervous and agitated” and asked the arresting officer to “cut him a break because he was a Bullitt County corrections officer,” Myers said, citing the arrest report. After questioning and a subsequent search of the vehicle, police found 28 hydrocodone pills, 28½ oxymorphone pills, six doses of anabolic steroids, three syringes, three needles, a gun and ammunition, Myers said. Bullitt County’s chief deputy jailer Robert Etherton said Risen was hired as a part-time officer on Jan. 28 and was still in his probationary period, which he said means Risen could be fired even if the charges were dropped.

10-4: Drug Trafficking!

April 21, 2011 He was the top cop in Sullivan City, Texas – entrusted with, among other things, going after drug traffickers and keeping his community safe from them. But as it turned out, the police chief who was supposed to be protecting his community was protecting drug traffickers, according to U.S. Attorney José Angel Moreno, Southern District of Texas. The former police chief, Hernan Guerra, 44, of Mission, Texas, has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison without parole for drug trafficking, Moreno said. Guerra was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 2,200 lbs. of marijuana earlier this year after pleading guilty. According to the press release about the case, Guerra admitted that as police chief, he helped drug traffickers commit their crimes by leaking to them information about where U.S. Border Patrol units would be located, and by dispatching his officers away from where the traffickers would be transporting drugs. Guerra received money from the traffickers for the tips that helped them elude detection and arrest. DEA says“In determining the sentence he ultimately handed down,” the press release said, U.S. District Judge Randy Crane “considered and commented upon Guerra's abuse of his position of trust as the police chief for Sullivan City noting that his conduct undermined the community's faith in law enforcement.” Moreno added: "We agree Guerra's abuse of his position undermines the community's faith in law enforcement. However, we trust this investigation and prosecution serves as a significant step toward restoring that faith." Seven other men pled guilty in connection with the trafficking case and received jail sentences ranging from 30 months to about five years. One defendant is from Mexico, the other six are from Sullivan City. They range in age from 18 to 41 years old.
