Totalitarianism in One City: Shreveport’s Gun-Grabbing Mayor

by William Norman Grigg

Any time a motorist is stopped by a police officer, insists Shreveport, Louisiana Mayor Cedric Glover, "Your rights ... have been suspended." This includes not only the freedom of movement, but also, in the event the officer inquires as to whether the driver is carrying a weapon, "Your right to be able to hold on to your weapon and say whether [you] have a weapon or not" – as well as the right to retain possession of that weapon, should the officer decide to confiscate it from you.

Should you choose not to answer the question, or answer it in the negative, the officer could still choose, "in the interest of officer safety, to secure you in a safe position" – this most likely means outside the car with your hands cuffed behind your back – "and then do an appropriate inspection of your vehicle."

The phrase "appropriate inspection" is more honestly rendered "Unconstitutional warrantless search."

Should the police officer then turn up a firearm or other weapon in the car, the driver "would be guilty or potentially guilty of even a more severe offense" than whatever he had allegedly done to precipitate the traffic stop, according to Mayor Glover. Police officers, according to Glover, are invested with "a power that the President of the United States does not have ... and that is the ability to be able to suspend your rights."

This is "one of the things that I say to each and every one of the police officers who graduates from the Shreveport Police Academy since I've been mayor." Fortunately for the public, one supposes, Mr. Glover remembers the lesson that Peter Parker learned from his kindly and sagacious uncle Ben – that is, with great power comes great responsibility. "You have to understand there is a great deal of power that is vested within ... the law enforcement personnel of this country," Glover insists. "It's why there is a great deal of responsibility that has to go along with it."

Glover offered those remarkable observations, and many others like them, in a recorded phone call with Shreveport resident Robert Baillio.

Mr. Baillio had called to complain about a recent traffic stop in which an SPD officer, who – before dealing with any other matter of business – asked if Baillio had a firearm, then temporarily seized it from him.

Louisiana law recognizes the right of the state's residents to carry loaded weapons in their vehicles, and Baillio has a state-issued concealed carry permit – that is, a piece of paper in which the state generously recognizes one facet of Baillio's innate right to bear arms.

According to Baillio's account, he was cordial and polite when he was stopped after supposedly neglecting to use a turn signal. That this was almost certainly a pretext stop is illustrated by the fact that Baillio never received a ticket. Supplemental evidence is offered by the fact that the conversation between the officer and Baillio focused entirely on the issue of gun ownership, including a question about Baillio's membership in the National Rifle Association.

Baillio doesn't conceal his NRA membership; it's advertised by a sticker on the rear windshield of his truck, as are his very passionate views of the right to armed self-defense. "Armed We Are Citizens! Un-Armed We Are Subjects!" exclaims another bumper sticker, expressing a core truth of our republican heritage. Yet another sticker displays various kinds and grades of ammunition captioned by the directive, "Celebrate Diversity."

It's the safest of bets that what triggered the stop, as it were, was not a traffic infraction by Baillio, but rather the police officer's conditioned reflex to treat the public expression of pro-gun ownership sentiments as innately suspicious.

In brief, Baillio was a victim of political profiling of the sort being encouraged by the Department of Homeland Security and the totalitarian "watchdog" groups who have spent decades indoctrinating the police.

In his telephone chat with Glover, Baillio – who was persistent but unfailingly polite – pointed out that he "answered the [officer's] question honestly and he disarmed me."

"Which would be appropriate and proper action, sir," replied Glover. "The fact that you gave the correct answer – it simply means that you did what you were supposed to do and that is to give that weapon to the police officer so he could appropriately place it in a place where it would be no threat to you, to him, or to anyone in the general public."

"Well, you know, he still had a gun," observed Baillio, hoping to underscore the fact that guns – as objects, rather than actors – do not pose a "threat" in and of themselves. "How is he – "

"Because he's a police officer," interjected Baillio before he could finish the question. "As I've just related to you, that police officer has powers, sir, that you do not have."

Let's unpack that reply, shall we?

From Glover's perspective, it is only when firearms are in the hands of people other than the state's uniformed enforcers/oppressors that they constitute a threat, not only to the public and those in charge of exercising official violence but also to the private gun owner himself.

Glover, a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, clearly believes that any firearms in civilian hands should be considered illicit. This is, in both a cultural and constitutional sense, entirely un-American.

Interestingly, it is in harmony with the UN's position, however, as summarized in the world body's 2000 agitprop film Armed to the Teeth: The World-Wide Plague of Small Arms. That film insists that the only "legal" weapons are those "used by armies and police forces to protect us" – as if the word "protection" describes the uses to which weapons are put by the enforcement organs of the criminal states that compose the UN.

It is his attitudes toward civilian firearms ownership and the plenary power of police, not his ethnicity or any similar accident of birth, that would make Glover a very suitable ruler of any of the scores of squalid Third World thugocracies represented in the UN.

According to Glover, a police officer may properly disarm any civilian at any time, and the civilian's duty is to surrender his gun – willingly, readily, cheerfully, without cavil or question. This is because police officers, as numinous beings anointed by the Holy State, exude the essence of pure goodness and would never commit acts of criminal violence against disarmed civilians.

Tell that to Angela Garbarino, a woman who was arrested by the SPD last year for DWI and wound up lying in a pool of her own blood after being "subdued" in a police holding cell.

Gaps in the security camera record of the incident occur at convenient intervals, so it's not clear exactly how Garbarino wound up bloodied on the floor. In a photograph taken later Angela displays the marks of a severe beating, including two black eyes, a broken nose, and a cut on the forehead that required stitches.

Wylie Willis, the hired thug who administered the beating, can be observed in the video checking his hands to see if there is blood on them. He was dismissed after the incident for "violating departmental policy," but faced no other sanctions.

Like any other pseudo-male who beats a defenseless woman, Willis lied that his victim "slipped and fell."

Like any other police officer who loses his job after a criminal assault on a "civilian," Willis insists that his firing was unjustified.

And like any other police union anywhere in our once-free country, the Shreveport Police Union insists that the abusive cop should get his job back.

Obviously, Willis should at the very least be prosecuted for felonious battery. Or, better yet, he should be put into a room, unarmed, with several of Angela's male relatives and given an opportunity to demonstrate the unalloyed martial prowess that enabled him to beat an intoxicated woman half his size whose hands were cuffed behind her back. Willis appears to have been a serial abuser of women, as do several others among Shreveport's ahem, finest.

In April, Jasmine M. Winston filed a civil rights suit against the City of Shreveport. A couple of years ago she was beaten by a baton-wielding Officer Willis outside a nightclub and then slammed face-first into the concrete by fellow SPD thug Daniel Sawyer. Oh, the undaunted courage these two armed "men" displayed in double-teaming a solitary woman.

A lawsuit filed by Darlene Atkins in 2006 claims that Willis put a gun to the head of her son Dillion Freeman following a brief pursuit and threatened to shoot Dillion if any of his family approached him. Another suit filed that year by resident Tomeka Bush claimed that after she filed a complaint in the Atkins incident, Willis retaliated by seizing her car. As in the subsequent beating of Angela Garbarino, there were anomalies in the official video record of the Atkins incident; in this case, the entire video was missing. The SPD "investigated" the matter just long enough to satisfy itself that Willis (let's say it all together, shall we?) acted in accordance with department policy. He always did – until his officially sanctioned criminal violence was documented beyond dispute.

Loathsome as he is, Willis is not exceptional.

In 2007, eight SPD officers were arrested for various offenses, including perjury, falsification of official reports, falsifying tickets, DWI, drug charges, and maintaining an "inappropriate" on-line relationship with an underage girl.

Of those offenses, the most striking are those committed in an official capacity. Given the latitude offered to Willis, it's difficult to imagine how blatantly an SPD officer would have to perjure himself before facing punishment.

Oddly enough, Cedric Glover didn't mention the corruption roiling in the SPD when, roughly a year ago, he vetoed a police retention plan that included a pay raise. And now that the "stimulus" spigots have been thrown open, Glover is eager to build his police department into a fighting force of extraordinary magnitude.

"We're asking for 90 additional police officers ... with this stimulus package [because] there is a portion that is available for cop spending and we want to go out there and capture as much of it as we can," oinked Cerdo, er, Cedric last February as the Holy One, His Munificence Barrack the Blessed (peace be upon him) hoisted the slop bucket over the national trough.

Along with expanding the local "infrastructure," Big Cerdo's chief priority for the stimulus is to use federal funds to expand his own herd of gun-grabbing Cerditos. The same is probably true of dozens of other mayors across the country, some of which may boast police departments even more corrupt than the one afflicting Shreveport.

Shreveport resident Ken Krefft, president of a neighborhood association, is understandably worried that the SPD's corruption could damage the city's tourism industry: "This is not a good thing for the city [to tell tourists] – 'Come to Shreveport, we've got crooked cops.'" It used to be that Americans would have visit such destinations as Cuba to experience what it's like to deal with corrupt police who can disarm, beat, and presumably kill innocent people with impunity. Cedric Glover has thoughtfully turned his city into a totalitarian theme park we can visit without leaving the United States – in a geographic sense, anyway.

Strip Search Part 1: Strip search of woman by Sheriff's Deputies called outrageous

CANTON -- Hope Steffey's night began with a call to police for help. It ended with her face down, completely naked and sobbing on a jail cell floor.

Steffey says Stark County sheriff's deputies used excessive force and assaulted her during a strip search 15 months ago, according to a federal lawsuit.

Stark County Sheriff Timothy Swanson denies the allegation.

Steffey's attorney says her clothes, including her underwear and bra, were stripped from her body by at least seven male and female sheriff's deputies and jail workers. She lay face down in handcuffs at the time.

"Hope begged and pleaded with her ... assailants to stop," the lawsuit says. "There was no forcible penetration but Hope felt as if she was being raped."

The sheriff denies this was a strip search.

The sheriff's policy requires officers conducting any strip search to be of the same sex.

Her attorney, David Malik, said Steffey, 41, was never asked to voluntarily remove her clothes. In an e-mail, Swanson said Steffey was asked to remove her clothes but refused. He said deputies took them off for her own safety.

Swanson declined to comment further, saying the details would come out in court.

Channel 3 News obtained exclusive video of Steffey's night in the Stark County jail cell. You can click the link at the bottom of the page to view it. A warning: it is difficult to watch.

Steffey declined to be interviewed for this story. But her husband, a high school educator, talked to Channel 3's Tom Meyer.

Greg Steffey said his wife is still traumatized. But the couple wants the story told to prevent it from happening to someone else.

"This could be your wife or anyone's wife," Greg Steffey said.

He said he still can't believe this happened to Hope, a 125-pound woman who, earlier that night, turned to police for help.

"You don't treat people like this," Greg Steffey said. "I don't think murderers are treated like this much less people charged with disorderly conduct."

Steffey's ordeal with the Stark County Sheriff's deputies began after her cousin called police for help.

In a 9-1-1 call, her cousin said Steffey had been assaulted by another cousin.

When a Stark County deputy arrived, he asked for Steffey's driver's license. She accidentally turned over her dead sister's license, which she said she keeps in her wallet as a memento, the lawsuit says.

The deputy refused to give the license back and told Steffey to "shut up about your dead sister," according to her attorney.

The sheriff denied that in a written response to the lawsuit.

Eventually, Steffey was arrested and taken to the Stark County Jail. She was later charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

After her clothes were removed, she was locked in a cell. To stay warm, she wrapped herself in toilet paper. She remained in the cell for six hours.

During that time, she was not allowed to use a phone or seek medical attention for injuries she suffered that night, including a cracked tooth, bulging disc and bruises, the lawsuit says.

The sheriff denies that.

Default Pig Mentality In Action

Waffle House waiter sues over Taser incident
By Andria Simmons
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Thursday, July 02, 2009



A Waffle House employee is suing the Gwinnett County Police Department over what he says was an unprovoked encounter with an officer who stunned him with a Taser.

The department’s internal investigation records reveal that the officer used the weapon like a toy with tacit approval from two superior officers.

Daniel Wilson, the 22-year-old waiter, spoke publicly about the encounter Wednesday at his attorney’s office in Snellville. The incident has already resulted in the arrest of Cpl. Gary Miles, 33, and the resignations of Sgt. Christopher Parry and Sgt. Joey Parkerson. None of the officers could be reached for comment this week because their phone numbers are unlisted.

Wilson said all three officers were regular customers at the Waffle House at 2725 Grayson Highway in Loganville.

He said the restaurant provided police with free food.

Wilson said the officers often pointed the red laser from their Taser at him playfully. They would do so when Wilson picked a song they didn’t like on the jukebox or when telling him not to mess up their order, Wilson said.

“It was uncomfortable, but they are my customers and they tip pretty well,” Wilson said. “I just thought they were being foolish.”

Then on Feb. 16, Wilson was chatting with Parry and Parkerson when Miles sidled up behind him. Without saying a word, Miles zapped him with the Taser, Wilson said.

“I remember feeling the pulse go through my body,” Wilson said. “It hurt.”

Taser stun guns deliver a 50,000-volt electrical current capable of incapacitating a person. The weapon can fire barbed probes a distance of up to 35 feet, or it can be used in “drive stun mode” when pressed directly against a suspect. Gwinnett police checked the data recording from Miles’ Taser and found it was fired for one second at 2:48 a.m. on Feb. 16.

Miles told investigators that he only “spark tested” the Taser near the employee’s back “just to scare him a little bit,” according to the internal investigation file.

Parry, 41, and Parkerson, 39, witnessed the employee being shocked but did not report it. They laughed along with Miles, Wilson said. The sergeants later told investigators they didn’t realize the Taser made contact with Wilson’s body.

Wilson said he remembers telling Miles in the presence of the other officers, “Hey, you actually tased me.”

Wilson again sought an apology from Miles a few days later for accidentally stunning him. He said Miles replied, “Who says I did it by accident?”

Miles was arrested June 18 on charges of misdemeanor battery and violating his oath as an officer. Parry and Parkerson resigned in lieu of termination June 19. Police are also investigating allegations that a fourth officer pointed a Taser at Wilson’s groin during an earlier incident.

Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter said he has not ruled out the possibility of charging the two sergeants.

“If the evidence shows there was an unprovoked use of the Taser, and if the evidence shows the sergeants had some criminal responsibility in the case, then they can expect to be prosecuted vigorously,” Porter said.

Michael Puglise, who is representing Wilson in the lawsuit in Gwinnett County State Court, is seeking unspecified punitive damages. He also wants a judge to bar Gwinnett police from carrying Tasers until their policy and training is evaluated.

“What is so concerning to me is the fact that you have a corporal - a ranking officer - zapping a kid with a stun gun and you have two sergeants sitting there watching for their own amusement,” Puglise said. “From their expressions and their actions, it is obvious that this is accepted.”

Gwinnett’s Police Department has had stun guns longer than any other force from the Atlanta area’s largest counties. Currently, 222 of Gwinnett’s 715 sworn officers are certified to carry Tasers, said Cpl. Illana Spellman, a department spokeswoman.

Spellman said using a Taser on innocent civilians is not acceptable. It is also against department policy for officers to accept free food from restaurants.

“It is clearly stated in training that the Taser will only be used to defend the officer or someone else,” Spellman said. “[These officers] were completely wrong.”

Police departments across the state have adopted widely different policies about the use of stun guns. Recently, the director of the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police said the state needs to offer standardized training.

Default Idaho police sodomize man with Taser

Cops love sodomy. Cops love their tazers. It was just a matter of time....

Quote:
By Carlos Miller
Boise police already had the suspect handcuffed when they rammed a Taser gun into his anus and fired.
Then they placed the Taser gun against his genitals and threatened to do the same.
At the time, the domestic violence suspect was lying face down with three officers on top of him, according to the Idaho Statesmen.
He couldn’t even breathe.
It was all caught on tape. Here is the exchange that took place:
Cop: Do you feel this?
Suspect: Yes, sir.
Cop: Do you feel that? That’s my …
Suspect: Okay
Cop: … Taser up your ass.
Suspect: Okay
Cop: So don’t move.
Suspect: I’m trying not to. I can’t breathe.
Cop: Now do you feel this in your balls?
Suspect: I do, sir. I’m not going to move. I’m not gonna move.
Cop: Now I’m gonna tase your balls if you move again.
(A full minute goes by)
Cop: Okay, I’m gonna take this Taser out of your asshole now. Are you going to fight with me?
Suspect: No, not at all, sir.
Cop: (to another cop) So far, for the last two minutes, he’s been cooperative. But then my Taser’s in his ass.
Not only was the exchange documented on the cop’s own tape recorder, the suspect ended up with burns on the inside of his right buttock. These were evident in photographs taken ten and 13 days after the incident.
Also, another cop who taped an interview with the suspect at the jail later that night ended up erasing the taped interview.
So you would think the first cop would be prosecuted for sexual assault? Or maybe the second cop be charged with tampering with evidence?
After all, we have a case in Florida where a group of 14-year-old boys are going to be tried as adults because they sodomized one of their classmates with broomsticks and hockey sticks.
But the rules are different when you are a cop.
After an internal investigation, police determined that the first officer violated the department’s use-of-force policy. And the second officer also violated department policy when he erased the taped interview.
Both officers have been “disciplined”, according to police.
But details of the discipline were not released. And neither were the names of the cops.
After all, police say, this is an “internal personnel matter.”
That’s right, nothing to see here. Move along now.
In fact, we would probably not have even heard of this story if it wasn’t for Boise’s Community Ombudsman, Pierce Murphy, who happens to be a former cop. His job is to investigate complaints of misconduct against cops.
Although he never names the cops, he did provide an extensive and graphic 43-page report on his findings.
The officers all told Murphy that the suspect was fighting, resisting and using profanity the entire time they were dealing with him, yet he notes that none of this is evident in the audio recording.
The Complainant was not completely still in response to the orders from police to stop moving. The Complainant was moving his torso and his legs in a manner consistent with trying to breathe more easily. The Complainant’s movements were not consistent with trying to escape from the police, attempting to head butt them, trying to kick any officer, or assaulting the officers.
Discussion of Finding: Consistent statements from the Complainant, Officer #1, Officer #2, Officer #6, and Officer #7. Although Officer #4 described the Complainant as “fighting” with the officers, yelling profanities, not doing what was commanded, kicking, and attempting to head butt them, the audio recording does not support her contention. No yelling of profanity by the Complainant can be heard. When the officers first entered the residence, the Complainant exclaimed, “God damn it. What the fuck?” The Complainant used no profanity after this. Officer #3 also stated that the Complainant was kicking. However, no officer can be heard on the recordings telling the Complainant to, “Stop kicking,” or, “If you kick again, I’ll tase you.” Instead, between the two of them, Officer #3 and Officer #4 told the Complainant several times to, “Stop moving,”.
Murphy also determined that the officers could have killed the suspect by piling on top of him like they did.
In the course of this investigation, it was clear that the involved officers were familiar with the concept of Positional Asphyxia as it relates to prisoners who are hobbled. However, none of the officers seemed to be aware of the possible danger posed by Positional Asphyxia to the Complainant in this case. This was a situation where a heavy, not terribly physically fit, middle-aged man had engaged in heavy physical exertion at the door. He was then placed face-down on the ground and handcuffed with his hands behind his back and the weight of three officers on his body. This may have had the effect of restricting the expansion of the Complainant’s chest and diaphragm, thus inhibiting the ability of the Complainant to get adequate oxygen and exhale sufficient carbon dioxide to compensate for the physical exertion in which he had just engaged.
Around the nation, many in-custody deaths have been attributed to Positional Asphyxia. The following is taken from an article appearing in the June, 1995, National Law Enforcement Technology Center Bulletin produced by the US Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice.
But despite the sodomy, the torture, the destruction of evidence and even the attempted manslaughter, Murphy’s recommendation was that these officers simply needed more training.

ASHEVILLE — An Asheville firefighter charged with attempted first-degree murder after witnesses said he shot at a bicyclist, made his first appearance today in Buncombe County District Court.
Charles Alexander Diez, 42, apparently fired at the Asheville man after arguing with him about riding his bike on the busy road with his 3-year-old child in a bike seat behind him, Asheville Police Capt. Tim Splain said.Diez's case is set to be heard on Aug. 17 in Buncombe County Superior Court.
Diez was driving his car off Interstate 40 at Exit 55 at about 11:24 a.m. Sunday when he saw Alan Ray Simons and his wife riding bikes up the road with Simons' 3-year-old son behind him in a bike seat, he said.
“He decided he needed to tell them he thought it was unsafe that they would do that and have their child out there in an area where they had a lot of traffic,” Splain said.
Diez stopped his car and confronted Simons near 1360 Tunnel Road. When Simons began to walk away, Diez shot at him, Splain said.
The bullet blew a hole through the outer lining of Simons' helmet and went straight through both sides of it, but he was not hit.
Simons and others who witnessed the incident took down Diez's registration plate number and called police.
After consulting with the Buncombe County District Attorney's Office, police charged Diez with one count of attempted first-degree murder.
“A matter of an inch or less in either direction would have meant that bullet could have easily killed Mr. Simons,” Splain said.
Buncombe County Sheriff's deputies found Diez's vehicle at his home on Rowland Road in Swannanoa and arrested him. Diez was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol at the time of the shooting and has no prior criminal record, Splain said.
He has been employed by the Asheville Fire Department since February 1992, according to interim Chief Scott Burnette. Diez has been placed on paid leave during the investigation, Burnette said.
Diez was being held today at the Buncombe County Detention Center with a secured bond set at $500,000

MOBILE, Ala. -- Police in Mobile, Ala., used pepper spray and a Taser on a deaf, mentally disabled who they said wouldn't leave a store's bathroom. The family of 37-year-old Antonio Love has filed a formal complaint over the incident on Friday. Police tell the Press-Register of Mobile that officers shot pepper spray under the bathroom door after knocking several times. After forcing the door open, they used the stun gun on Love. Police spokesman Christopher Levy says police didn't realize Love had a hearing impairment until after he was out of the bathroom. The officers' conduct is under investigation. The newspaper says the officers attempted to book Love on charges including disorderly conduct, but a magistrate on duty wouldn't accept the charges.

Default Crooked cops, jew lawyers, muds....the kwa at its multicultural finest.

Quote:
A video that once again has the Hollywood Police Department investigating allegations of corruption against its officers went undiscovered for months because a DVD filed March in court did not contain the incriminating clip.
The video, in which officers are heard discussing plans to doctor an arrest report in order to fault an accused drunk driver in a police-involved crash, is now at the center of an internal affairs investigation into the actions of five department employees.
The clip could also alter the outcome of court cases from misdemeanor DUI to murder.
Prosecutors learned of the video July 21 -- more than five months after Alexandra Torrensvilas was charged with driving under the influence in a Feb. 17 crash with Officer Joel Francisco.
Charles Morton, Broward's chief assistant state attorney, said Friday that a disc originally filed in Broward Circuit Courts contained only two of three video clips involved in the case.
``It's under investigation,'' he said, declining to comment further.
According to court documents, prosecutor Cathy Berkowitz received the clip from Torrensvilas attorney Lawrence Meltzer. Prosecutors dropped all charges against the 23-year-old Hollywood resident Wednesday, despite evidence that she had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit at the time of her arrest.
Hollywood Police Chief Chadwick Wagner declined through a department spokesman late Friday to comment on the previously missing video.


Wagner did speak publicly about the investigation for the first time Friday morning after days of silence while the video gained thousands of hits on YouTube.com and received national attention. Wagner addressed the video and allegations against his officers, saying his department is thoroughly investigating and has requested the state attorney's help.
``With that said, I realize and understand those that feel a sense of betrayal over this incident and I ask each and every one of you to allow this investigative process to run its course,'' he said.
Wagner said he learned of the allegations against his officers Tuesday and took immediate action, suspending Francisco, arresting Officer Dewey Pressley, Sgt. Andrew Diaz and Community Service Officer Karim Thomas prior to media reports about the video.
On Friday, police identified a fifth employee caught up in the probe: Crime Scene Technician Andrea Tomassi.


Wagner said by law he could not comment on the investigation. He declined to answer questions about the incident and struggled with a locked door before leaving the department's conference room amid a flurry of queries about his department's credibility and maligned history. Most notably, Hollywood Police were embroiled in a scandal in 2007 when a federal sting led to the arrest of four officers. Public Defender Howard Finkelstein has been critical of the department since Meltzer brought the video to his attention July 24. He said he received a copy from police and released the clip to a legal affairs blog the following Monday, setting off a media firestorm.
The next day, he sent a letter to Wagner, demanding accountability and decrying what he called a ``culture of corruption'' at the department.
Some city commissioners generally spoke positively about the department Friday.
``I think it's just individuals. I don't think it's an entire culture of corruption,'' Commissioner Beam Furr said. ``I hope we are able to weed them out.''


Now, with the video in-hand, Finkelstein said the allegations against the officers could act as legal dominoes in pending and resolved cases in which they were called as witnesses. ``This could have huge, far-reaching implications and that's why you need to understand this is more important than a couple of cops did something bad,'' he told The Miami Herald.
The state attorney's office is now evaluating 27 pending cases involving the accused officers to determine whether it can prosecute without the officers' testimony, according to Morton.
Those cases range from misdemeanor DUI to murder, said chief assistant public defender Mindy Solomon.
She said the Public Defender's Office is also reviewing cases closed during the last 30 days and during the last two years to see if they could be potentially reopened.
``We have new evidence we didn't have before,'' she said.

Former cop accused of rape now a free man

VIDEO:

http://www.wave3.com/global/category...002223&flvUri=



By Paige Quiggins, WAVE 3 News Intern
Posted by Charles Gazaway - email

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A former Louisville Metro Police Officer convicted of raping a woman three years ago in the presence of her 9-month-old daughter, is now a free man after his conviction was overturned in appeals court.

50-year-old Billy Ray White, who once faced a 12-year prison sentence, had a conviction and new trial ordered last year by the Kentucky Court of Appeals, with the ruling of using limited prosecutor's evidence against him.

A Jefferson Circuit Jury found White guilty of rape, intimidating a participant in a legal process, tampering and official misconduct in February 2006. White was also tried in 2004 for the alleged rape of Shannon Franklin and convicted on charges of tampering with a witness, public records and physical evidence.

Previously, White had requested for separate trials. The Court of Appeals decided that request was wrongly denied for the official misconduct, tampering and intimidation charges for the separate incidents.

On July 28, Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Jon Heck and White's attorney Steve Schroering asked Jefferson Circuit Court Judge McKay Chauvin for a new trial date and were told to resolve the case on July 30.

"He determined at this point, that if he had the opportunity to be released from prison to go on with his life while maintaining his innocence, that he would be foolish not to take that," said Schroering.

After the July 30 Alford Plea, White will now face lesser charges of sexual abuse and will be sentenced to time already served. He will be required to register as a sex offender and be under court restrictions for the next three years.

"The only thing that makes me more angry than the fact that he's going to be free, is the prospect that he would be free and not a convicted felon and not a convicted sex felon, he could have this case expunged if he was acquitted alright, and he could go out west and try to become a police officer again," said Heck.

Default Lawsuit over strip search settled

Stark County — Stark County has agreed to settle the lawsuit brought by Hope Steffey who says she was brutally strip searched and left completely naked inside a jail cell for six hours.

U.S. District Court Judge David Dowd said in a court order that the plaintiffs, including Sheriff Tim Swanson and the Stark County Board of Commissioners, "have entered into a resolution of the plaintiffs' case against those defendants, reserving only a determination by the Court as to the amount of attorney fees and costs."

"As a consequence, the plaintiffs' case against the county defendants has been concluded, but the plaintiffs' claims against the non-county defendants remain before the court."

The non-county defendants include contractors which provide medical and psycholgocal services to the jail. That case is scheduled to go to court in October.

It appears from the court order that the county defendants have agreed to pay a monetary sum to the Steffeys but the order did not disclose the amount.

It also appears that the county has agreed to pay Steffeys' attorney fees and costs. A hearing on the amount of fees and expenses remains to be set by the court.

When asked if the settlement is an admission of guilt, Sheriff Swanson told The Investigator Tom Meyer, "No reaction, Tom" and he hung up.

Other county officials had no reaction either.

Steffey and her lawyer David Malik declined comment.

Steffey sued the county after six deputies -- both male and female -- forcibly removed all her clothes. The case began when Steffey had a relative call the sheriff for help after she was assaulted by her cousin.

She ended up being arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

The sheriff argued Steffey was suicidal, an allegation she denies. The sheriff said deputies had to remove all her clothes so she wouldn't harm herself.

Steffey's lawyers argued that deputies who handled her incarceration were not properly trained in homicide and suicide precautions.

The case generated reaction nationwide for months.

Default Cop Fired: His Porn Surfing Habits Slowed Down Agency Computers..

Quote:
Ft. Myers, Florida — A Lee County Sheriff's Office corporal has been fired after his porn-viewing activities at work slowed agency computers.
Cpl. Scott Heimlich, 48, who worked in corrections, was fired July 23.
According to an Internal Affairs report released Friday, Heimlich violated the agency's policy on viewing pornographic material and conduct unbecoming of an officer.
The report said a check of Heimlich's computer found 857 pornographic images on his hard drive, 619 of which were time-stamped July 9. The other 238 pictures could not be dated but were similar to the other images.
The pictures were discovered when the sheriff's technical support team noticed the second week of July that servers began running unusually slow.
"They started checking the Internet proxy server and located a user (who) was accessing inappropriate video on the Internet," Sgt. Michael Stanforth reported.
They traced the login to Heimlich and seized his computer for a search.
Heimlich, who works in the Lee County Jail core facility, admitted he viewed the pictures while on duty.

Default Denver cop accused of using gun to speed up McDonald's breakfast

A Denver police officer faces felony menacing and weapons charges based on an allegation that he pointed a pistol to speed up his order at an Aurora McDonald's in May.

An employee at the McDonald's at 18181 E. Hampden Ave. told investigators that two officers were waiting for their order at the drive-through window in the early morning hours when Derrick Curtis Saunders, 29, grew impatient and pulled a weapon.

In addition to the menacing and weapons charges, Saunders also is charged with prohibited use of a weapon, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct, the Aurora Police Department said Monday.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said Saunders has been suspended with pay during the investigation, but he would be put on unpaid leave once the department is formally notified of the charges.

Jackson said neither he nor Police Chief Gerald Whitman would comment on the case.

"It would be inappropriate for us to make any comment about another department's case, especially an ongoing, active investigation," he said.

Saunders was assigned to Denver International Airport. His booking photograph was not available from Aurora police Monday.

Default Trail-blazing gay cop is busted{headline}. Fecophile Kwap Buggers Illegals Muds

Quote:
The Miami Herald reported that Deputy Jonathan Bleiweiss, 29, the employee of the year for the Broward Sheriff’s Office’s Oakland Park District, was arrested “on 14 charges, including sexual battery, false imprisonment and stalking in connection with abusing one of the victims, a 30-year-old male.”
The police are investigating the potential sexual abuse of 7 other men. The Herald reported: “They are undocumented immigrants, mostly from El Salvador and Mexico, who speak little English.”
Bleiweiss had been heralded for being an openly gay cop. Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti said: ”I can’t think of a worse betrayal of public trust. The fact is, he preyed on one of our most vulnerable communities.”

Default Ky. jailer resigns after rape conviction

Ky. jailer resigns after rape conviction

11:27 AM EDT on Friday, August 7, 2009



SANDY HOOK, Ky. (AP) -- An eastern Kentucky jailer has resigned after being convicted and sentenced on a rape charge.



The Independent of Ashland reports that 51-year-old Charles Howard stepped down after being informed that his public official bond was being revoked and without it he was no longer qualified to hold office.



In a resignation letter date July 29, Howard says he expects his absence to be temporary. He denies any wrongdoing and says that "once my appeal is successful, I intend to reclaim my position as jailer."



Howard was sentenced to 12 years in prison after a jury convicted him of raping a female prisoner. Howard had argued during the trial that he and the woman had consensual sex in his vehicle.

PEST-wielding Tax-Feeder Assaults Mom in Front of Her Kids
Posted by William Grigg on August 13, 2009 02:47 PM

Last January 31, Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputy Sean Andrews, fishing for revenue, stopped a woman named Audra Harmon near Salina, New York. Andrews claimed to have seen Harmon talking on her cell phone while driving; Mrs. Harmon, who had two of her children in the back of her mini-van, responded that she hadn’t been doing so and could prove it.

Undeterred, Andrews then accused Harmon of speeding. Again, Harmon politely insisted that she hadn’t been. She handed over her license and registration. As Andrews turned away, Harmon — under the impression that she was going to review the dashcam video, began to exit the car.

Andrews ordered Harmon back into the van, and then immediately ordered her out, saying that she was under arrest. When Harmon hesitated, Andrews seized her by the arm and violently yanked her out, ordering her to the ground. Seconds later he assaulted her with the first of two blasts from his Portable Electro-Shock Torture device (PEST, more commonly called a Taser).

He then dragged the mother — whose physical resistance amounted to a single attempt to pull away from the deranged, armed stranger when he dragged her from the car — toward the side of the road. He then knelt on her back, using his flabby bulk to pin down the traumatized woman while handcuffing her. Andrews falsified an arrest report by claiming that Harmon had “obstructed traffic” by stepping out of the van. The video of the incident clearly shows that Harmon was well away from traffic until she had been tased and dragged in the direction of the road by Andrews.

The victim of this assault under the color of state “authority” was charged with speeding (50 MPH in a 45 MPH zone), “disorderly conduct,” and resisting arrest. Those charges were dropped after prosecutors viewed the dashcam video.

Audra Harmon plans to sue the station. Andrews was re-assigned to office duty while internal affairs seeks some pretext to justify his criminal actions.

3 prison employees fired in wake of inmates' escape

Story Created: Sep 16, 2009 at 2:58 PM EDT

Story Updated: Sep 16, 2009 at 3:43 PM EDT

MICHIGAN CITY — The Indiana Department of Corrections fired three employees in connection with this summer's prison escape in Michigan City.

Department officials say they fired correctional officer Jonathan Waldo for trafficking and neglect of duty and correctional officer Kelley Westrich for dereliction of duty.

Prison officials say there was a lack of supervision while inmates Lance Battreal, Mark Booher and Charles Smith were working in tunnels underneath the prison. That's how they escaped. It took police more than a week to catch them.

Prison officials say the men worked in the tunnels for some time.

The state also fired maintenance foreman David Westlund and suspended correctional counselor Donald Bates for trafficking, which means they either gave something to the inmates or took something to them, both of which are prohibited.

Waldo filed an appeal; the other three still have time to do so.
