Oh, as an addendum, AIUI, FBI has a spokesman talking with the media about this. Robbery, even jewel robbery, is not normally an FBI case. So what're they doing there?

Why was the FBI involved to begin with? Was this meant to be a larger case, with the robbers under surveillance before they even robbed that store? If so, why was the robbery allowed to proceed, and for the love of God, how were the robbers able to escape?

Insanely irresponsible.
Well, they had to stop these guys. Otherwise, innocents might have died!

8 year old girl is strip searched by prison correctional officers before they allowed her to see her father in prison. They did not have the permission of her legal guardian.

Bad Cops from a Bygone Era

Henry Lee Lucas: The Confession Killer.

Watched several episodes of the Netflix documentary last night. The whole ordeal boggles the mind.

The Texas Rangers get a half-witted hick to start confessing to murders. He keeps on confessing to more and more murders.

Now, once his confessed murders got into triple digits, a thinking human would stop and ask 'Hey, maybe this guy isn't credible?'

Not in Texas. Or other jurisdictions around the country. They were lining up around the block to get this guy to confess to one or more of their unsolved murders.

Did not seem to matter to them that to make all the murder scenes, he would have to drive non-stop for days.
Quote:
in October 1978 alone, he would have had to drive 11,000 miles in order to carry out eight separate murders.
It did not matter that family members of one of the victims say his confession was factually wrong. That the murder could not have occurred as he wrote it out. When these family members investigated on their own, and found that Henry Lee Lucas was in another state when the murder occurred, the Texas Sheriff stood by their guy. They never searched for any records on Lucas to verify his whereabouts. Turns out they were not that hard to find.

A Dallas detective, suspicious as a cop should be, got him to confess to an unsolved murder in Dallas. Then she revealed to Sheriff Boutwell that she had made it up. The murder did not happen and the person did not exist. Sheriff Boutwell was unphased.

Lucas ended up confessing to over 600 murders. And Sheriff Boutwell and his cohorts believe it all, even though their was no physical evidence linking Lucas. In any of them.

Quote:
The task force officially "cleared" 213 previously unsolved murders as a result of the confessions. Lucas received preferential treatment rarely offered to convicts, being frequently taken to restaurants and cafes for his participation. He was rarely handcuffed, often allowed to wander police stations and jails at will, and even knew codes for security doors.[15][13]
This says it all. If you believe you have a man in your custody that killed hundreds of people, you would not let him have codes to security doors. You would not wander the halls of the jail without handcuffs, you would not turn your back on him. "Yeah, old Henry, he kills without a thought, and human life means nothing to him, and he has killed hundreds, but he's docile enough now and we don't really need any security for him...."

Quote:
DNA evidence has verified that Lucas did not kill twenty of his supposed victims
I wonder how many cases had DNA samples to test? I suspect it was around '20'.

They knew Lucas was full of shit.

Most of us grown up with a belief that Law Enforcement Officers are ethical and professional, and are public servants. I miss having that belief.

This data supports a hypothesis I've suggested for a long time -- broad societal injustice against black people, even if it's just in the "background", decreases the chances for black people to thrive. In other words, being black in America is harmful to one's health.

People say soldiers get PTSD from war, but what if you're in a war and only the other side gets the guns and you never know when you'll be attacked? Racists like to argue that black people aren't human, but that seems like an inadvertent confession on their part. They denigrate people so they can feel good about treating those people badly.

Jesus Christ. I wasn't prepared for how horrible that video is. That child looks like a goddamn rag doll. The kid was a step and a half away from the school goon, apparently walking calmly, or at least not in a threatening manner. Maybe the kid mouthed off, but there's nothing the kid could have said that would justify a grown-ass adult cop slamming him to the floor like that. Fucking twice!

This is via Twitter, and I don't have a mainstream media source, but it looks pretty clear. Seattle cops are riding their bikes on the sidewalk, run into some guy from behind, then violently arrest the guy they ran into. https://twitter.com/benjancewicz/sta...282130944?s=19

Also, a few days before that, Seattle cops are pushing a crowd back, using their bikes as barriers. Crowd seems to be complying. One cop trips over his own bike. Cops all start to flip out and attack the crowd. https://twitter.com/spekulation/stat...224116225?s=19

Ya know, I'm beginning to think most of our cops are just skittish, heavily armed thugs. How many times did shit like this happen before everyone was walking around with cameras in their pockets?

San Joaquin County releases video showing police racially abusing a healthy Jacob Servin during processing for public intoxication and escorting to a cell, an hour later it shows police escorting him out bloodied from a savage beating that Servin says came from the San Joaquin Sheriff’s correctional officers. NSFW news link; he was severely beaten.

LAPD officer under investigation for allegedly fondling dead woman’s breasts

Quote:
The incident occurred when the officer and his partner responded to a call about a possible dead woman in a residential unit, sources said. Once the two officers determined the woman was dead, one officer returned to the patrol car to retrieve something. During that time, the accused officer turned off his body-worn camera and allegedly fondled the woman’s breasts, LAPD officials said.
There really is no commentary I can add to this.

From the CNN story.

Quote:
The union said it will not represent the officer involved in the event criminal charges are filed.
I suppose it's good to know that there is a limit to where the union won't defend one of their own.

Cops should not be those who served in the American armed forces.

If they are, they should receive background checks.

I don't hate police, they have a tough job dealing with a crazy society.

They need to be better trained, they need more diversity, and there needs to be a community-police relationship.

It's okay. The officers' Police Union will defend them. The Judge will waive it all off, they'll be promoted and Mr. Servin will not be able to live in San Joaquin County.

Business as usual.

This is also wrong. The union should defend everyone and should not pre-judge any office due to the nature of the allegations.

I finally had a chance to watch these videos closer and on a larger screen. In the first one, I think maybe the red backpack guy pushed at the cop on the bike. It's hard to see in the scrum, but when Idiot Cop pushes into Red Backpack, I think I see Red Backpack's right leg move and plant as though he's pushing or swinging at the stupid ass who just ran into him with a bike on the sidewalk. This in no way justifies the cops. First of all, why the fuck are they riding on the sidewalk and ramming pedestrians from behind? And second, the cops need to defuse situations like this rather than escalate them. But, assuming Idiot Cop is a poorly-educated, poorly-trained bully (a safe assumption, I think) I kinda see how the situation progressed. The cops are goons, but there's a sort of narrative coherence to it.

That second video, though... what the fuck? A cop, who is nowhere near any protestor, and is in fact separated from the protestors by one row of cops, trips over his bike. Then, he rushes past the front line of cops to waylay a protestor for no reason I can make out. The cops in the front lines seem briefly surprised that Klumsy Kop is attacking, then they join in, because everybody loves a beatdown I guess?

As an aside, is it standard practice for cops to use bicycles as crowd control devices? A bike seems like a pretty poor crowd control device.

Is it possible they were in pursuit of the guy with the backpack, and wanted to arrest him based on probable cause of a crime?

If that were true, was this approach the best method to apprehend him? I know they teach to ram fleeing cars in certain situations, but do they also teach "ram people from behind with your bike"? If so, they need to get this training protocol published so they don't appear to complete tools like they do in this video.

Further down the comment chain is a longer video that shows the lead up to everything.

Nothing makes any sense in any of it. But don't worry, the police are investigating!

Why has the goon's name not been released? Don't we usually get to know the names of suspects in violent crimes, unless they're a minor? Why are reporters not combing through his social media and his entire life history to find every thing he's ever done wrong? I mean, it's only fair. When the cops kills a guy, it's inevitable that we get the pictures of the guy looking scary, or we hear about his past run-ins with the law, or we find out that he had Motrin in his bloodstream or whatever. I want to know everything this cop has ever done wrong in his entire fucking life.

Remember, these are Seattle police. They are the scum of the profession. Twenty years ago this month, there was a WTO thing happened in Seattle that got a lot of press for several days. Since that little bit of ugliness, they have just gotten worse. On May Day of any given year, when there is an impromptu march in the city, they show up armed to the teeth with large sticks and riot gear, often outnumbering the marchers, and look for the slightest excuse to turn the march into a melee.

They are quite simply assholes. If you ever go to downtown Seattle, park as close as you can to where you have to go and spend as little time as possible between your car and that place, because the guys there who are paid to fight crime can be worse than the actual criminals.

A Pike County Ohio sheriff's deputy pepper sprayed a man who was strapped into a restraint chair, then punched the defenseless man in the face eleven times. The deputy subsequently filed a workmans compensation claim for a broken hand.

A deputy burglarized grieving families’ homes during funerals, officials say.

Quote:
Authorities say that Janelle Gericke, who worked as a corrections officer at the Jefferson County Jail until July, scoured obituaries for funeral times and targeted the homes of grieving family members while they were attending memorial services.

Oh, Pike County. What a surprise.

The deputy's boss, the Pike County Sheriff, is currently suspended from office due to being indicted for theft in office and some other crimes.

Another recent Pike County deputy is in prison for manslaughter.

(This is not a large force.)

Remember this story?

News out today: The entire class in that photo, plus a few higher-ups, have all been fired.

Prison guard trainees were photographed giving a Nazi salute. The whole class got fired. Kim Bellware, Washington Post, Dec. 30, 2019.

A Kansas police officer told the chief that an employee at a local McDonald's wrote "fucking pig" on his coffee cup.

Then the owner and the chief reviewed the store security footage and found that no such thing happened.

Turns out the cop made it up as a "joke" and he's now been fired.

Two Mobile, Ala cops made a "quilt" out of homeless people's signs where they asked for handouts and food, then posted it online with the caption "Wanna wish everybody in the 4th precinct a Merry Christmas, especially our captain. Hope you enjoy our homeless quilt. Sincerely Panhandler patrol." The Chief of Police apologized, but there is no indication that there were any repercussions.

Officers shot the woman after she refused orders to drop the shotgun, he said. “If she would not have pointed a gun at the agents they would have determined all that on the scene and would have bid her a ‘good day and thank you very much,’” Cochran said.
Yeah, because it is her fault that they failed to check their own paperwork. Anyone want to bet on whether she has to pay her own medical bill?

The over-under on how long they gave her to comply is 0.01 second.

Man brutally beaten by cops in a hospital in 2018 found dead

Quote:
At the time of his death, Andrew Casciano, 31, had a $4 million lawsuit pending against the city over the assault, which resulted in convictions that sent two Paterson cops — Ruben McAusland and Roger Then — to federal prison.
NSFW

The video is brutal. It shows two incidents of a cop punching a man in custody. Once in a wheelchair and one in a hospital bed. The attack in the hospital bed was filmed by his partner. He starts the video by turning the camera on himself to show his smiling face.

The punch in the wheelchair (which resulted in injuries that required racial reconstruction surgery) was witnessed by a half dozen officers. None of them reported anything.

Authorities only know about the video.....because they found it when they arrested Paterson Police Officer Ruben McAusland for drug dealing. He was selling heroin and cocaine while in uniform.....from his marked police car.
They found out about his drug dealing during a Federal investigation of Paterson cops making illegal traffic stops and then robbing the drivers.

Quote:
They are among six Paterson cops arrested as part of an FBI probe that started at the end of 2017.

The other four officers have been accused of making illegal traffic stops and then taking cash from the vehicles’ occupants. One of those four, Jonathan Bustios, pleaded guilty last year and is awaiting sentencing. Charges are pending against the other three – Daniel Pent, Eudy Ramos and Matthew Torres.
All 6 officers were part of the same 2014 class of police recruits.

Officer Admits He Faked Claim About McDonald’s Coffee Cup Insult

Police officer "fabricated" story about being served McDonald's coffee with "f***ing pig" written on cup

A Kansas police officer "fabricated" a story that a McDonald's employee wrote an expletive on his coffee cup over the weekend, Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday said Monday. Hornaday said the officer, who no longer works for the department, had originally claimed he had been given a coffee cup on Saturday that had "f***ing pig" written on it.


"We found that McDonald's and its employees did not have anything whatsoever to do with this incident. This was completely and solely fabricated by a Herington police officer who is no longer employed with our agency," Hornaday said at a press conference.

The officer, who has not been identified, was with the Herington Police Department for only two months, Hornaday said. ... Dana Cook, the owner of a McDonald's in Junction City, said in a written statement after the allegation was made that the store had video showing it couldn't have been an employee. Cook did not speculate at the time about who may have written the words.

"My McDonald's have the utmost respect for all members of law enforcement and the military and were troubled by the accusation made," Cook wrote in the statement. "We thoroughly reviewed our security video from every angle, which clearly shows the words were not written by one of our employees. We look forward to working with Chief Hornaday as he continues his investigation."

Yeah. The whole story was made up bullshit.

NYPD cop sentenced in racist tirade resigns amid outcry

Quote:
A New York police officer who was sentenced last month in Tennessee for a racist tirade and break-in at the home of an African American family has resigned from the force, the department said Thursday. Calls for the firing of NYPD officer Michael Reynolds, who is white, have grown since he was sentenced December 6 in the rampage at the Nashville home in 2018,
The NYPD cop went to Tennessee for a bachelor party, got rip-roaring drunk, broke into a family's house and yelled racial slurs and threats.

He was fired by NYPD because of an online petition of 12000 names and the fact that the incident was recorded on a neighbor's surveillance video.
Quote:
She said Reynolds, who was visiting Nashville and staying nearby with a group for a bachelor party, called her and her family "f--king n---ers" and threatened to "break every f---ing bone in your f---ing neck." The paper reports he charged at Halliburton and only left the home when she told him police were on the way.
