When your only tool is a gun, everything looks like a target.

Re: Law and Order 2

Looking at that video I don't think this incident is as egrigious as you make it sound. I am not saying this shooting was justified but Staffordshire Terriers can be quiet dangerous and they were moving close to the officer although not in a manner that I deem threatening.

You talking to me or Namath?

I think he shot the dog(s) because he was afraid. Yeah, that breed can be dangerous, but he shouldn't have those particular dogs.

It's very low on the list of problem incidents in this thread, but shoot first and almost no tolerance for danger to a cop is part of the larger problem.

Re: Law and Order 2

A woman says Arlington police offered to drop charges against her two teenage sons in exchange for cellphone video she shot that she says shows an officer needlessly pushing her older son to the ground and arresting him.

...

Dominique Alexander, a spokesman for the group, said the boys' mother, Latasha Nelson, alleges that police took her cellphone while making the July 3 arrests and that when she tried to get it back, they offered to drop the charges in exchange for the video.

He said the video was backed up to the cloud, which enabled her to let the group post it online.

The video shows officers taking Nelson's handcuffed 14-year-old son, identified by the family as Trayvon, into custody for questioning about a burglary. As the squad car pulls away with the boy in the back, Nelson asks where they are taking him. The lead officer refuses to tell her and says she's "become uncooperative."

The family's attorney, Kim Cole, said as Nelson continued to ask where her son was being taken, her other son, 16-year-old Broderick, stepped beside her to console her.
Cole said that's when the officer grabbed Broderick, forced him to the ground and arrested him for obstructing police operations.
If you watch the video the officer is clearly escalating the situation. You have a mother is understandably upset that her child is being arrested and instead of empathizing or at least giving her an explanation to try and calm her down the officer calls officers for back up and then arrests her other son who, as far as the video shows, didn't do anything.

The woman was smart to have a cloud backup for her video.

Alaska cops need to be able to molest sex workers in order to arrest them (so they can rescue them, of course).

Police punch 5'2 black teen girl after mistaking her for 5'10 black male suspect

Quote:
On the day police stopped Hargrove, officers had been looking for a suspect — described as a 25- to 30-year-old, bald black man standing 5-foot-10 and weighing about 170 pounds — who had threatened several people with a machete at a nearby grocery store, according to a police report.

“She appeared to be a male and matched the description of the suspect that had brandished the machete and was also within the same complex the suspect had fled to,” Christopher Moore, the arresting officer, wrote in his report.
And because of course:

Quote:
According to the police report, Hargrove was arrested for resisting or delaying an officer and aggravated assault on an officer.
Quote:
A Bakersfield police spokesman told The Washington Post he would not comment further on the case but confirmed that the department had determined that the officers had exercised appropriate use of force on Hargrove.

Agreed.
In most of the other incidences posted in this thread the cop should be in jail or fired. I don't think that is the correct result here. The cowardice among police officers is an epidemic that needs to be eradicated though.

A Minneapolis police officer fatally shot a woman late Saturday after responding to a 911 call.(...)she had called police for help after hearing a noise.(...)Investigators are seeking video of the incident.

So basically don't call the police or you or a loved one will be shot.

If I'm ever on a jury I'll never trust evidence that cops just "find" all by themselves with no corroboration.

Just sickening to imagine how long these guys have been getting away with this. Like that cop who shot a guy and planted a taser on him.

At what point has the threat been neutralized?

Police dash cam footage of and 8 mile chase through Egg Harbor Township into Atlantic City, the suspect had attempted to purchase an $8 meal but after two credit cards were declined he pulled a gun and fled the restaurant.

Suspect had 45 gunshot wounds from the 7 officers at the scene, looks like he had a lit cigarette in his hand in addition to the gun he drew and fired on officers.

Also looks bad that they fought so hard to suppress the release of this video.

Article with details of the case:

LOL at 45 bullets. Were they shooting at Jason from Friday the 13th?

The Ferguson officers who stopped Brown lost an appeal today. The court denied them qualified immunity and said the other person stopped can sue.

Re: Law and Order 2

Cases should be dismissed, but that doesn't change much. I'm not big on retribution in general, but some cops need to go to jail for things like this. It's dismissing cases or lawsuits that the cities pay and the cops don't care. It's +EV for them to plant evidence and a significant percentage of them are going to do it.

Re: Law and Order 2

Long article on a similar theme: Woman convicted of killing her mother had her conviction overturned by Tennessee Supreme Court after prosecutors withheld exculpatory evidence

More than just that specific case, the article goes into the history of having to turn over evidence (it's pretty new in the US compared to Europe, being established mostly by rulings from the Warren court in the 60s) and the rules around it, along with looking at the woman that prosecuted this case who's a rising political star in Tennessee and who's faced attacks for prosecutorial misconduct in the past.

Remember that case where guards allegedly boiled a prisoner in a shower? The one where the Medical examiner said but naaw, no burns here. Autopsy photos were leaked. Not going to post them here, even in spoilers. Poor guy was burned so bad his skin was sloughing off. The ME is trying to say that is due to decomposition 12 hours after death.

Re: Law and Order 2

Cops get probation for selling drugs stolen from evidence lockers, in part because of the unwavering support of their wives. No, really.

http://www.bakersfield.com/news/form...1bab0efca.html

"Being the wife of a law enforcement officer is not easy," the judge told Tiffany August and Callie Penney after asking both women to stand.

"Being the wife of a fallen law enforcement officer is even more difficult."

O'Neill went on to acknowledge that the wives had taken "the brunt," maybe the largest share, of the suffering meted out by the acts of their husbands.

"The two of you have been incredible not to have gotten into the U-Haul and taken off," he said. "The both of you should be proud."
