Last May, retired police officer Martin Stites was arrested on
charges of molesting a 3-year-old girl, who he was babysitting on the
behalf of the girl’s mother. A forensic analysis of the girl showed that
she had been molested, and there was evidence that her clothes had been
burned afterward. During a preliminary hearing, all charges against him
were dropped due to a lack of evidence, but the judge decided to bring
up a new charge of lewd molestation, which will be brought to court in
the near future.
At first glance none of that sounds controversial, until you hear what happened to father of the girl
(who hasn’t been identified) during the trial. When the now 4-year-old
girl took the stand, she was asked to identify who molested her. She
mumbled something that the court interpreted as “I don’t know” but her father stood up and claimed that she said “I don’t want to look at him”
in an attempt to correct the court. The father was asked to leave the
courtroom, over fears that the girl would answer her questions to seek
her family’s approval.

21st Century Wire says…
The issue of honest policing and institutional corruption
within law enforcement has been exercised over and over, with every
high-profile controversy. Certainly, 2015 had its fair share of these kind of incidents.
The issue of institutional corruption still goes unattended however,
as media seem to prefer the obsession of spinning every story in terms
of race, or class, rather than seriously looking at the problem of
devolving so much power and blind authority that are by their very
nature – often corrupt.
Where is the DOJ, and where is the President weighing-in? Where are the race mobs? Is this story not sexy enough for the media?

LOS ANGELES – While one Los Angeles
police officer acted as a lookout in the front seat of a departmental
car, a 19-year-old woman working as a drug informant was forced to
perform oral sex on his partner in the back seat after being told, "You
have to do what the police tell you to do," the teenager said in a
federal court filing.
Another woman, also working as a drug informant, said
the same two officers each forced her to have sex with them twice after
threatening her with jail time.
Two other women told similar stories.
On Wednesday, prosecutors announced that veteran
Officers James Nichols and Luis Valenzuela had been arrested and charged
with repeatedly raping the four women over a three-year period, mostly
while they were on duty.
The charges against Nichols, 44, and Valenzuela, 43,
include rape under color of authority and oral copulation by force.
Valenzuela also is charged with pointing a gun at one of the women.
They could face life in prison if convicted.

A federal court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania has ruled that filming the police without a specific challenge or criticism is not constitutionally protected.
The cases of Fields v. City of Philadelphia, and Geraci v. City of Philadelphia
involve two different incidents where individuals were arrested for
filming the police. Richard Fields, a Temple University student, was
arrested after stopping to take a picture of a large group of police
outside a house party. Amanda Geraci, a legal observer with CopWatch
Berkeley, attended a large protest against fracking in September 2012
and was arrested while filming the arrest of another protester.
Both Fields and Geraci are seeking damages from the Philadelphia
Police Department for violating their Constitutional right to videotape
public officials. Previous rulings have found the public has a right to
record police as form of “expressive conduct,” such as a protest or
criticism, which is protected by the First Amendment.
The appeals court was specifically tasked with finding out
whether or not the public has a First Amendment right to photograph and
film police without a clear expression of criticism or challenge to
The court wrote:
“Fields’ and Geraci’s alleged ‘constitutionally
protected conduct’ consists of observing and photographing, or making a
record of, police activity in a public forum. Neither uttered any words
to the effect he or she sought to take pictures to oppose police
activity. Their particular behavior is only afforded First Amendment
protection if we construe it as expressive conduct.”

This is so dumb, it’s hard to write about it.
Apparently it’s just coming to light that the LAPD is currently testing a knife found buried on OJ Simpson’s property years ago.
A construction worker on the property found the knife and turned it
over to an off-duty cop sometime during 1998 or thereafter. The cop…

Last September, a police officer in Berrien County, Michigan was racing to the scene of a domestic abuse incident, when he struck and killed a pedestrian.
Based on evidence that was later collected at the scene, in addition to
eyewitness reports and the dash cam footage, it was determined that
officer Eugene Anderson was driving 64mph in a 35mph zone. While it’s
not unheard of for a cop to drive like that, what makes this case
especially egregious, is the fact that Anderson was speeding at night
and didn’t turn on his lights or siren.

Police in the United States managed to escape prosecution when facing
allegations they violated civil rights an incredible 96 percent of the
time. This is almost the exact opposite of the conviction rate for
everyone else, as normal citizens are are prosecuted at a rate of 93 percent.
The investigation by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
(the Trib), based on an analysis of nearly 3 million federal records,
found that from 1995 through 2015, federal prosecutors overwhelmingly
opted not to pursue prosecution. Indeed, the 96 percent refusal to press
charges sharply contrasts with the rejection rate for all other
complaints — just 23 percent.
Investigators found the most common reasons given for refusing to
prosecute officers were “weak or insufficient evidence, lack of criminal
intent required under a 1945 Supreme Court ruling standard, and orders
from the Justice Department.”
In response to the Trib’s study, Justice Dept. spokeswoman
Dena Iverson said the DOJ takes “any allegation of law enforcement
misconduct seriously and will review those allegations when they are
brought to our attention.”

This shocking CCTV footage shows a police officer shooting a dog in the head and killing it for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
What was that, target practice?
The NYPD still refuses to release the name of the cop that did it,
likely for fear someone will see this video and want to treat him the
way he treated the dog.
The playful and innocent dog, shot by an NYPD police officer for absolutely no reason whatsoever, was named Spike.

Over 1,000 people were killed by police in the U.S. last year.
Regardless of whether or not someone can argue the potential
justification in each case, that’s an insane number.
If the first three months of 2016 are any indication, this year will
see more Americans dying at the hands of cops this year than last.
Welcome to America, where something as simple as bad judgment can get you murdered.
While more attention continues to be drawn to this horrifying police
state of affairs, more officers are being forced to wear body cameras.
With that, it’s becoming harder to “create” justification for deadly
force when the evidence simply does not exist to support it.
Take the instance of Texas resident Daniel Shaver who died by cop unarmed and begging for his life.
Shaver, a 26-year-old married father of two, was at a hotel on a
business trip for a pest control service. He was intoxicated and showing
off his pellet guns to two other hotel guests. The clerk at the front
desk called the cops after some other random guests complained that a
man armed with a rifle was pointing a gun out the hotel window.
Police arrived on scene. Shaver’s widow, Laney, describes how her husband was murdered in her own words:

“They were there with their guns drawn,” 82-year-old retired school teacher Elizabeth Harrison told reporters last month. “‘Put your hands up! Put your hands up! Put your hands up!’”
Did you hear the joke about the Chicago cops who hospitalized an 82-year-old woman? OK. We admit, it’s not that funny.
But we’re going to tell it anyway.
Just last month, a team of Chicago’s finest hired guns conducted a no-knock raid on Elizabeth Harrison — an 82-year-old woman.
“They wanted me to produce this young man that they were looking
for,” Harrison told reporters. “And they would not take no for an answer
that I didn’t know him.”
And while Harrison sat in her chair breathing like a heathen under
the weight of a full-blown panic attack, the man they were looking for
came to the house and, according to Harrison’s daughter Linda, told the
police: “You all came to the wrong house, I live at 126, and this is

Pittsburgh, PA — A student on a bus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
caught a cop on video angrily berating a kid for smiling. The incident
highlights the modern reality in public schools where blue-clad soldiers
of law with badges and guns are a normal, everyday presence.
In the video,
uploaded to Facebook, an unidentified police officer stalks down the
aisle of the bus, directing his rage at a student in the back who
performed the outrageous act of smiling.
“You think you’re funny…you think you’re funny.”
As he reaches the student, the cop leans over the boy and says, “Smile in my face one more time, I’m gonna drag your ass off this bus and back to that fucking police car.”

Police protecting or serving, or a gestapo goon squad? You decide.
Welcome to America, where you never know when the gestapo is going to
knock on your door and attempt to search you for “crimes” that you
didn’t commit, especially if you answer the door armed with a gun you
legally own. In fact, it’s a lot like that old saying about if a tree
falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a
Well, is living in America a crime until a cop shows up?
Looks like someone forgot what the 4th Amendment is. And the 2nd Amendment. Aw heck, let’s just say the whole Bill of Rights.
The video below shows an unidentified Valdosta Police Officer
completely lose it in the doorway of Earl Cannady after the officer
tries to imply they might be doing drugs because they are
“investigating” and his wife’s brother has a history of drug use.
It goes a little something like this:

LOS ANGELES (CN) —
Los Angeles police handcuffed, beat, Tasered and suffocated a Latino
man to death and erased a witness’s cellphone video of it, his mother
and children claim in court.
Alex Jimenez died in South Los Angeles on April 13, 2015, when one or
more unnamed LAPD officers dropped the handcuffed man to the ground and
held him down with a knee to his neck or throat, his mother Maria
Hernandez says in the April 19 federal lawsuit.
Hernandez’s son had six minor children. She says that “(d)espite
repeated pleas” by her son and others, an officer kept his knee on her
son’s throat, causing him “to vomit, turn blue, and ultimately die.”
The officers released pressure on Jimenez only when “they realized
they were being recorded by a percipient witness,” according to the
Then the witness “was transported to an LAPD station where he was
interviewed and the video was erased from his phone by LAPD officers,”
