Cops justified in slapping protesters who flip them off, Bay Area police union president says on Facebook; group plans protest

Why does it seem like the biggest clowns in blue end up running the unions?
That's just insane. But I'm sure the cops would be happy to file assault charges against a civilian who slapped a fellow civilian who was mouthing off but hadn't made physical contact.

All unions should be disbanded. Great idea gone horribly horribly wrong.

No clue where to put this so I guess I'll put it here. I'll be interested to see the follow up (if any) to this story:



The OP posted a bunch of tweets from people on the scene, so take this with a huge grain of salt:

The tl;dnr seems to go...

- Two girls go missing, but it doesn't hit the requirements of an amber alert for whatever reason so parents/neighborhood go to find them.
-Track them to a house, call the police. Police search the house, say there's nothing there. Someone is unsatisfied with the search so they knock on the door and are met with gunfire. Police come back to handle the gunfire, and this time they magically find the girls and other kids.
-House is lit on fire.
-Firefighters show up and start putting the fire out but stop and allow it to burn because they were out of water.

Many suspecting cops were part of the sex ring and lit the fire to cover up evidence. Crazy sh*t.

Trooper charged with stalking after taking woman's phone, sending himself nude photos

https://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/troop ... ude-photos
MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - A Minnesota State Patrol trooper was charged with felony stalking for taking a woman’s cell phone and using it to send himself nude photos of her, the Hennepin County Attorney's Office announced Tuesday.

Albert Kuehne, 36, was charged with two counts of stalking with bias due to the fact the victim was a woman.

According to the criminal complaint, on March 25, Kuehne worked a single-car accident at Interstate 94 and Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis. The driver, a 25-year-old woman, was detained by Kuehne as a possible drunk driver. She was taken to a hospital where she was treated and released.

When the woman returned home, her boyfriend was using her laptop, which is linked to her cell phone. According to the complaint, the laptop records showed the woman’s phone was accessed and nude photos of her were texted from it to an unknown phone.

Her boyfriend called the phone number, and the person who answered eventually identified himself as Kuehne. The woman called a lawyer, who reported the incident. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension began an investigation.

According to the complaint, Kuehne’s squad video showed him leading the woman to his squad car. Along the way, the woman took out her phone, and Kuehne demanded that she give it to him. The cell phone records indicate the photos were sent from the woman’s phone at 4:44 p.m. The video showed Kuehne alone in his squad at that time while paramedics treated the woman.

Investigators obtained a search warrant and seized Kuehne's phone. They found three photos of the woman on his phone, according to the complaint.

According the the Minnesota State Patrol, Kuehne was placed on paid investigatory leave May 20, 2020.

Note that investigators have video of the cop taking the phone, being alone in his car with the phone, and they found photos of the woman on the cop's own phone. Yet the cop is still on paid leave. Blue privilege.

Valdosta police sued for $700K in excessive force case

https://www.valdostadailytimes.com/news ... 5665b.html

Cop arrives for a panhandling report. He approaches the wrong man. He asks for ID, which the man voluntarily provides. A second cop arrives, grabs the man, and body slams the man and breaks his arm. Ooopsie! They had the wrong man all along, which they would have known if they had bothered to run the man's ID before assaulting him and breaking his arm.

Colorado Cop Arrests, Abuses Man for Refusing to give Witness Statement



https://newsmaven.io/pinacnews/cops-gon ... vpkNWTfZcw
Stunned that a citizen would not want to talk to him, Loveland police officer Paul Ashe escalated a routine exchange with a citizen into an overly aggressive arrest, leaving the man bleeding from his head and arm with a dislocated shoulder, facing charges of obstructing and resisting arrest.

“I told you. I gave you plenty of opportunities," Ashe told Preston Sowl, a 60-year-old man who was one of several good samaritans who had helped an injured motorcyclist who had fallen on his bike.

"All you had to do was talk to me."

But Sowl was under no legal obligation to talk to him. In fact, even if he had been suspected of committing a crime, he would still have the right to remain silent.

But as a witness to a one-man accident that caused no fatalities, he had the added right to be free from unlawful search and seizures which is why prosecutors never filed charges against him.

Last week, Sowl filed a lawsuit against the Loveland Police Department and four officers who went along with the unlawful arrest.

Police Departments Asked Live PD To Cut Footage That Made Cops Look Bad

https://reason.com/2020/07/01/police-de ... -look-bad/
After A&E canceled the police ride-along reality show Live PD in response to growing criticism and activism about how police officers treat black people, host Dan Abrams insisted that part of the purpose of the show is to provide additional transparency into how officers operate in the field. Abrams said that he thought the show actually furthered the cause of police accountability.

But a new investigation by The Marshall Project, in partnership with The Daily Beast, raises questions about the influence of the police departments with whom the show partnered.

The Marshall Project sought out records and emails between the 47 law enforcement agencies that worked with Live PD and the show's production company. From the 20 agencies who responded to their records requests, they found documentation that police officers reviewed footage before it aired and that, in 13 cases, police asked Live PD to not broadcast specific encounters.

Not all of Live PD was aired live. The show frequently followed police and recorded footage to be aired for future episodes. And even for the footage aired "live," there was actually a 10- to 25-minute delay so that the footage could be reviewed. The show said it only edited footage to remove private information or censor footage that could jeopardize a case or cause a security risk.

But The Marshall Project found that law enforcement agencies asked that footage be cut for other reasons. In one such case, police in Warwick, Rhode Island, confronted a man on a skateboard with a shopping cart who was suspected of shoplifting. As a police car chased the man on a skateboard, it appeared (though it's not fully clear) that the officer driving the car opened the door to knock the skater down while the vehicle was moving.

This is a pretty dangerous tactic for catching a shoplifter and could have hurt the man. A captain with the police department wrote to Live PD and told them that the method used to catch the shoplifter was "way outside of [their] policy and [they] would be opening up some scrutiny issues with the city and our insurance company if they were to see this." He said that the incident was "too 'wild west'" for how they typically behave in the department. Following that email, the incident never aired on Live PD.

The investigation also found footage of a sheriff's deputy in Spokane, Washington, forcefully removing a woman from her own home after she apparently called them over a domestic violence incident. The woman told officers they had to get a search warrant in order to enter her home and then tried to close the door. Instead of leaving, or waiting peacefully outside the home, the officers dragged the woman out of her house while waiting for a judge to sign a warrant.

Once again, representatives from the sheriff's department asked Live PD not to air the encounter due to "procedural issues" with how the deputies behaved. The show's producers tried to edit the footage, but the department was still not satisfied. The encounter never aired.

New Charges and Audit Results Reveal Widespread Laxness and Corruption in the Houston Narcotics Division That Killed an Innocent Couple

https://reason.com/2020/07/02/new-charg ... nt-couple/
Ten months after Houston cops killed a middle-aged couple during a no-knock drug raid based on a fraudulent search warrant affidavit, Police Chief Art Acevedo was still assuring the public that the incident did not reflect a broader problem in his department or its Narcotics Division. "We will continue to be vigilant in our processes and our systems and our audits," Acevedo told reporters on November 20, dismissing "the chances of this being systemic." That was the day the Justice Department announced federal civil rights charges against Gerald Goines, the former narcotics officer who cited a heroin purchase that never happened to justify the raid that killed Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas in their home on January 28, 2019.

New criminal charges against Goines and five of his former colleagues, along with internal audit results that were revealed yesterday, show that "the chances of this being systemic" are actually 100 percent. The revelations suggest that Acevedo, who has been presenting himself as the embodiment of police reform since George Floyd's death, either had no idea what was going on in his department or did not want the public to know.

"Houston Police narcotics officers falsified documentation about drug payments to confidential informants with the support of supervisors," Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said yesterday. "Goines and others could never have preyed on our community the way they did without the participation of their supervisors; every check and balance in place to stop this type of behavior was circumvented. This was graft and greed at every step in the process, and prosecutors are making their way through the evidence one incident at a time."

Body Camera Footage Shows Florida Cops Laughing About Using Rubber Bullets on Anti-Police Brutality Protesters
https://reason.com/2020/07/03/body-came ... rotesters/
A Florida police department is investigating officers who joked on camera about the protesters they shot with rubber bullets.

Body-worn camera footage obtained by the Miami Herald shows officers with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department (FLPD) shooting rubber bullets towards protesters during an anti-brutality protest on May 31 and then making jokes.

One officer is heard shouting, "Beat it, little ****," to a protester who appears to be hit after picking up a tear gas canister and throwing it back in the direction of police. At one point, another officer asks if the body-worn camera is on and then laughs that he "plugged his ass three **** times."

In a statement released this week, FLPD Chief Rick Maglione says that a longer video "clearly demonstrates our officers were under attack by a group of people who chose to use violence instead of peace to antagonize the situation." Maglione also says the officers were "dealing with the chaos of a developing situation."

FLPD has been criticized for its conduct during the May 31 protest. The department said it was fending off violent agitators in a city garage, but video and photos from the protest do not appear to back this version of events. The protesters appear to have remained peaceful until an officer was seen shoving a kneeling protester. Another police officer quickly stepped in to reprimand him and protesters began to throw water bottles in his direction. The situation escalated when more officers arrived on the scene. One protester was hit with a rubber bullet and suffered a fractured eye socket.
