Police Union Complains That Public Got to See Them Roughing Up Utah Nurse

“The head of the Salt Lake Police Association has watched the country’s outrage over the videos showing a nurse getting arrested for refusing to draw a man’s blood without a warrant and has decided the correct response is to complain that the public got to see what its officers did.

Union head Stephen Hartney sent a letter to the city’s mayor and police chief to complain video of the brief arrest of nurse Alex Wubbels has made “pariahs” of Det. Jeff Payne and his watch commander at the time of the incident, Lt. James Tracy.

Wubbels became an insta-celebrity on Labor Day weekend after she released police body camera footage showing Payne very forcefully arresting her at University of Utah Hospital because she refused his demand that she draw blood from an unconscious victim of a nasty high-speed car crash. The patient, William Gray, was not a suspect, nor involved in the chase, and Payne didn’t have a warrant. Wubbels, surrounded by staff at the hospital, explained that she was not permitted to draw the man’s blood. Payne arrested her, in what appeared on video to be sheer frustration at having been defied.

Payne and Tracy have been placed on leave while the case was investigated. A couple of weeks ago the city revealed an internal investigation and a civilian review board determined the two officers violated department policies.

Hartney this week complained the police body camera footage should not have been publicly released until the investigation was completed. From the Salt Lake Tribune:

The letter said the union was, at this point, not arguing or even discussing the merits of the allegations raised against the officers. “Rather we are solely concerned… with the ‘investigatory process’ which we believe has been corrupted.”

The letter claims the city has not followed an “agreed upon and carefully scripted process” for investigating the conduct of police officers. At the news conference, Hartney focused on if the city should have released the footage so soon under the state’s Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA), considering the release could have interfered with the internal affairs investigation.

The release of the body cam footage and information from the disciplinary investigation “has created a public furor which makes reasoned determinations difficult, if not impossible,” the letter states.

The city, however, didn’t release the videos. It agreed to a request by Wubbels to release the footage to her, following the law Hartney referenced. The city said it had no good reason to deny the video footage to Wubbels.

The two officers weren’t even put on administrative leave until after Wubbels went public with the video footage.”

For my LEO friends: To know me is to love me

This is from the comment section on an article about police shooting

One commenter said that the whole problem was the fact that they were hiring military vets

My response to him is below

“I disagree with you wholeheartedly on not hiring military veterans. Do you know how high the standard is for them to be able to shoot at a Talibani?   Way higher than the standard for a cop to shoot a US citizen. A lot of the problem is that these cops are frightened pussies and they shoot people out of fear. There is no place for a coward with a gun. The training they receive is also at fault.That is where they encounter the “Us versus them” mentality. All they hear is that every encounter could be deadly and all that matters is that they ” Go home safe at night”. Forget protecting and serving, just make sure that YOU are safe.   I would much rather encounter a Vet with balls who has been trained militarily to hold his fire unless fired upon than some cowardly little Roid nanny who wets himself every time he faces a man without 3 other cops backing him up.”

To serve: Fox lake cop tried to hire hit man to kill mayor

“Fox Lake Police Lt. Joe Gliniewicz sent text messages to an unnamed woman asking her to help find a motorcycle gang member to kill Anne Marrin, the village manager who was auditing the Fox Lake Police Explorers unit, police said. Investigators later found Gliniewicz embezzled some $50,000 from the youth training club over a period of seven years to pay for travel, gym memberships and adult websites.

Gliniewicz also mentioned the possibility of planting something on Marrin, police said. Packets of cocaine were found in his desk, but it is unclear if they were to be used on Marrin.

“It’s very unsettling. My concern is my family. It’s quite unbelievable and almost surreal,” Marrin said. “It’s a very scary thought that an officer sworn to uphold the law would even think to do that to an administrator.”


Yeah, I caught all kinds of flak on the news sites when this guy bought it

I was accused of being a leftist, an occutard, an anarchist and worse

I actually had one cop sucker wish the death of my family while I frantically called for police who would never come


Because I thought people were a little out of hand saying that whoever shot this hero should be summarily executed

Shot down like dogs, hung from the nearest tree

Who needs a trial, just kill them where you find them

And this from people who purport to be on the same side as I am

They would not even look at the fact the Fox lake police chief resigned while under investigation along with another just days before

They felt re-assured by the overwhelming local and federal police response

See? This is what happens when a cop is gunned down

One of those heroes who puts his life on the line every day

We must keep them safe

Except for the fact that all during that response they already knew that he was under investigation

So, to all you cop suckers out there who will never see the truth because you are so busy defending someone just because they put on a uniform


Happy Friday everyone

Two Lauderdale Florida officers acquitted in police misconduct case

Suspended Fort Lauderdale police officers Brian Dodge and Billy Koepke were acquitted Friday of charges of official misconduct, falsifying reports and perjury, ending a five-year saga that once saw them facing the rest of their lives in prison.

The jury that heard the case deliberated for 31/2 hours over two days before deciding inaccurate reports signed by both officers after a pair of drug arrests, and Dodge’s inaccurate testimony about those cases, could be explained as an honest mistake rather than a criminal attempt to manufacture evidence against the defendants.

The officers were accused of providing false information against Junior Jerome and Dieudson Nore, two men accused of taking part in a pill mill operation. When Jerome and Nore were arrested, Dodge and Koepke filed reports saying both defendants were inside Jerome’s car when they were pulled over, and both dropped small amounts of cocaine on the car floor.

But a video that later surfaced showed Nore was not in the car at the time it was stopped in the parking lot of a Red Roof Inn in Oakland Park; he was inside the motel lobby. The false information led to charges being dismissed against both defendants.

According to investigators, it was the tip of the iceberg of alleged misconduct by Dodge and Koepke. When they were originally arrested in 2011, they were accused of an elaborate scheme of shaking down drug addicts and dealers, stealing their money and, in one case, kidnapping a man and driving him around for hours while trying to get him to provide evidence against other alleged dealers and users.

The more serious charges could have landed Dodge and Koepke in prison for life. But in August, prosecutors dropped the charges, reasoning that a jury would be unlikely to convict the officers on the word of their accusers.

The remaining official misconduct charges were backed by surveillance video that flatly contradicted the reports filed by Koepke and Dodge. Official misconduct and perjury are felonies, each carrying a maximum 5- year term. Filing a false report is a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of a year.

Wow, talk about cop suckers

The jury couldn’t wrap their heads around the fact that this guy may be a lying scumbag

They even had the video to prove that he was lying

But they chalked it up to an honest mistake

Officer friendly would never do that

Indiana makes It Legal to Shoot Cops in Self-Defense If They Violate Your Rights

“Other states have already ruled in favor of citizens shooting police officers in self-defense, (even hip-hop legend Tupac walked after shooting two cops in self-defense) now, in the state of Indiana, if a police officer initiates aggression without cause in someone’s home, violence can be used against them in self-defense – including using lethal force.

“The new law was drafted to “recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant.”

This should hardly be seen as profound. In the past, self-defense was viewed as a human right. The Bill of Rights does not grant rights to the citizenry of the United States, it recognizes natural rights. One of those rights — a veritable law of Nature — is the right to resist.

No matter what one does, or takes from you, nothing can stop the innate right to follow our natural impulses of resistance. That does not mean all will exercise that right. But the right itself is natural, primordial, inborn.

The new amendment in Indian recognizes this. It makes it clear that badges do not grant special rights to break into someone’s house and commit acts of violent aggression. If they do, the resident has the right to resist those illegal actions and defend themselves.”

“The Free Thought Project notes that many police officers “have already begun to fear monger the passage of this bill,” saying “If I pull over a car and I walk up to it and the guy shoots me, he’s going to say, ‘Well, he was trying to illegally enter my property.’”

This fear mongering comes from Joseph Hubbard, 40, the president of Jeffersonville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 100, who asserts “somebody is going get away with killing a cop because of this law.”

In spite of these statements, here’s what the law actually states:

(i) A person is justified in using reasonable force against a public servant if the person reasonably believes the force is necessary to:
(1) protect the person or a third person from what the person reasonably believes to be the imminent use of unlawful force;
(2) prevent or terminate the public servant’s unlawful entry of or attack on the person’s dwelling, curtilage, or occupied motor vehicle; or
(3) prevent or terminate the public servant’s unlawful trespass on or criminal interference with property lawfully in the person’s possession, lawfully in possession of a member of the person’s immediate family, or belonging to a person whose property the person has authority to protect”

Don’t come in my fucking house period

Keystone cops enter wrong home, shoot homeowner, kill his dog and critically injure one of their own

“DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — The G.B.I. says the DeKalb County police officer that entered the wrong home for a burglary call was accidentally shot by another officer, not by the homeowner.

The incident happened on Boulderwoods Drive around 7:35 Monday night. Three officers arrived at the residence and attempted to contact any occupants inside. When no contact was made, the officers made their way around to the rear of the home and gained entry to the residence through a screened porch. The G.B.I. said police went through a “reportedly unlocked door”.

Upon entry, the officers encountered a dog. Two officers fired their weapons striking and killing the animal. A male in the home, later determined to be the homeowner, was also shot by the responding officers.

One of the police officers, identified as Travis Jones, was shot in the hip. The G.B.I. says their early investigation indicates Jones was likely shot accidentally by one of the other officers at the scene.”

These are some highly trained individuals right here

Shot in the hip by one of his own

You can read that as shot in the ass

I wonder if that is going to get him a desk job?

You know, with a couple of pillows on his chair

The only thing missing from this comical story is a homeowner like myself

Trust me, you don’t want to wake me up with gun fire in my own home

Scumbag Florida cop assaults disabled vet, smashes his phone for filming him

“Florida man Isiah James served his country for 10 years. He survived two trips to Iraq and one to Afghanistan.

Riviera Beach cop G. Wilson took less than 10 minutes to decide that the Army veteran Isiah James didn’t deserve a handicapped sticker.

Isiah’s $800 iPhone 6+ didn’t survive a trip to the Walgreens.

James had family in town on vacation, and father doesn’t drive, so he took father to the store. On his way home, the two man stopped at a Walgreen’s liquor store.

Cop followed Isiah James into the store before running the handicap space.

Isiah was getting ready to pay, when the officer entered the store and demanded that he leave. Another 20 seconds and he would’ve paid and left.

The Florida cop put on his doctor’s hat and declared that, “You’re walking, you’re not handicapped, someone else should use this space.”


This hero in blue is named Sergeant Gary Wilson

If you happen to live in the neighborhood, please compliment him on his fine behavior as a public servant

Things like this should not go unanswered

It is a damn shame that we don’t have the stocks anymore to publicly humiliate pigs like him

American police kill more people in one day than Norway cops have in 10 years

“As tensions deepen in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, and New York City, so does American gun culture. Civilians and law enforcement dig in their heels on the idea that having guns is the only way to stay safe, because the perception is that everyone else has a gun.

But everyone doesn’t have a gun. And pumping more firepower into an already broken system won’t help fix it.

The most immediate solution most experts see involves radically rethinking how law enforcement is done, which means relying less on force and more on face-to-face contact.”

“Since January 1, 2015, police officers in the US have killed more than 600 people, with 100 of those deaths occurring in March alone. Even if statistics might suggest otherwise, the most visible incidents depict law enforcement as a system that is inherently prejudiced toward people of colour.

For many, this leads to an inescapable conclusion: Police officers are threats, not lifelines.

Compare the sobering reality in the US with another one. In Norway, the last time a police officer shot and killed somebody was in 2006.”

“So one way to curb gun deaths is simply to make the police more visible and approachable in high-crime areas,” Oddsson says. “Have them engage the community in a respectful manner. Police on foot rather than in cars. Talk to people. Get to know them. Participate in community events. Build trust.”

That could be the only context in which stripping officers of their guns would have a positive effect.”

“Hirschfield argues the best approach involves treating civilians with a greater degree of respect. Police departments should encourage their officers to recognise a problem and solve it, rather than spot a crime and punish it.”

You have to love the dawn of the video age. These days you can’t sling a dead cat without it landing on a freshly made video of a crooked cop.

The question is ; When will the populace as a whole realize the scope of the problem?

A lot of conservatives still think that it is a minor problem caused by “A few bad apples”

You cannot have a free society that is policed by trigger happy thugs

You cannot expect liberty when the system meant to insure it is corrupt

What used to be a small scale problem that mainly existed in big city PD.’s has now gone nationwide

People fear Federal tyranny while ignoring the bars of the police state closing in around them

Cop involved in flash banging baby lied to obtain warrant, now under indictment

ATLANTA – A former sheriff’s deputy has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of providing false information to a magistrate judge in order to obtain no-knock warrants that led to a near fatal SWAT raid.

The Habersham County, Georgia Sheriff’s Office conducted the raid on a house in Cornelia where a 18-month-old boy was severely burned by a flashbang grenade thrown into his playpen, leaving him with severe burns on his face and chest that required months of painful surgeries.

Nikki Autry, 29, of Clarkesville, Georgia, was acting as part of the sheriff’s office and the Mountain Judicial Circuit Criminal Investigation and Suppression Team on May 27, 2014, at 3 a.m. when the units conducted the raid.

Bounkham “Bou Bou” Phonesavanh was permanently scarred by a SWAT team in Habersham County, Georgia.

Flashbang grenades were developed for combat use and are meant to temporarily blind and deafen anyone nearby.

“I heard my baby wailing and asked one of the officers to let me hold him,” the boy’s mother, Alecia Phonesavanh, told Salon. “He screamed at me to sit down and shut up and blocked my view, so I couldn’t see my son. I could see a singed crib, and I could see a pool of blood.”

No drugs were ever found in the house.

Now, more than a year later, the indictment against Autry indicates the operation was botched from the start.

Enough with the cop shit, right?

I can’t help it, every morning I look at the news I find another article like this

It isn’t bad enough that they smoked the kid in the raid

The POS lied to obtain the warrant

Somewhere along the line we are going to have to put the skids on these scumbags

Either we disband them, defund them or hold them personally responsible

Somewhere along the line, the rubber is going to hit the road

““Our criminal justice system depends upon our police officers’ sworn duty to present facts truthfully and accurately – there is no arrest that is worth selling out the integrity of our law enforcement officers,” said Acting U.S. Attorney John Horn in a statement. “In this case, Autry is charged with making false statements to a judge in order to obtain search and arrest warrants. Without her false statements, there was no probable cause to search the premises for drug”

Sorry, Andy Griffith is dead and all we are left with are a bunch of lying ,immoral bullies on a power trip
