  • Rochester cops advise man to break into home; woman inside house responds with a gun

    05/22/2018 12:30:31 AM PDT · by BBell · 37 replies
    A situation escalates when the police tell a man to break into his home.Moments after arriving at the city house, Rochester Police Officer Korey McNees offered a solution for the man standing outside who wanted to retrieve items from his uncooperative girlfriend who'd earlier changed the locks: Just break into the house, McNees said. The law allowed it, McNees told the man time and time again in conversations outside of the Genesee Park Boulevard home and captured on police-worn body cameras. If the boyfriend lived there, then he was in his legal right to kick in a door or break...

    Sexual harassment. Homophobic games. Racial slurs. Testicles on a soda can. A chief who points his gun at his officers. A computer riddled with porn viruses. And, to top it all off, a big blue dildo. These are among the many, many antics alleged by Mountainside police officers and borough employees against other officers in a recently filed lawsuit — a 46-page tale that suggests the craziest things happening in the teeny, sleepy, fewer-than-7,000-residents borough of Mountainside have been occurring inside the police department.

    While conducting a traffic stop on a busy two-lane road I had asked the driver for their license and registration and then returned to my vehicle to check their credentials. This is when I felt the sudden yet all-too-familiar stings on my ankle and leg. When I looked down I noticed that my foot was entirely engulfed in fire ants. The roadway where I conducted this traffic stop is very narrow and I had to be careful entering or exiting my vehicle to ensure not stepping into oncoming traffic. Hastily, I kicked off my boot but continued to get stung...

    In March, Sacramento police officers shot and killed 22-year old Stephon Clark who was holding nothing other than a cell phone. The cops thought he had a gun and he was running through the neighborhood smashing car windows and breaking sliding glass doors and he was high on a number of drugs. The protests afterward shut down a freeway and city streets, barred Sacramento Kings fans from entering the arena, and resulted in smashed car windows and other vandalism. In July 2016, Michah Johnson ambushed and fired upon a group of cops in Dallas, killing five and injuring nine. Johnson...
  • New law: Kansas cops can't have sex during traffic stops

    The Wichita Eagle ^ | 05/10/18 | Dion Lefler
    A new Kansas law makes it a crime for police to have sex with people they pull over for traffic violations or detain in criminal investigations. The new law bans sexual relations "during the course of a traffic stop, a custodial interrogation, an interview in connection with an investigation, or while the law enforcement officer has such person detained." Now, you may be asking, wasn't that illegal already? Actually, it wasn't. Kansas was one of 33 states where consensual sex between police and people in their custody wasn't a crime. That came as a surprise to members of the House...

    A cocaine breathalyzer may soon help cops sniff out the drug within minutes. The device could become a reality thanks to a new low-cost, chemical-sensing chip being developed at the University of Buffalo, the school announced Monday. The chip could be integrated into a handheld device and used by authorities to detect drugs in breath, spit, urine or blood.

    ne day, my partner Nicky and I responded to a call on Church Street in New York City. When we arrived, a woman was leaning out of a fifth-story window yelling “Up here! Up here!” We ran up the stairs of the old five-story walk-up and saw that the old wooden door had been knocked in and was hanging by a single hinge. We went inside and met with a heavy-set, 30ish Latin lady who had been yelling from the window. She was clearly upset and sporting a fresh shiner. The following is a breakdown of our conversation, which in...

    Kudos for Sheriff David Clarke for reminding us of the double standard practiced by the self-righteous guardians of social justice such as Starbucks, who flagellate themselves in public over the injustice of denying non-paying patrons use of their facilities – patrons who happen to be black: Not too long ago a Philadelphia Starbucks refused to let a police officer use the restroom telling him it was for paying customers.  Don't remember Starbucks closing 8000 stores for sensitivity training toward police. In 2015, an unnamed Philadelphia police sergeant entered a downtown Philadelphia Starbucks and asked to use the restroom.  He might have been the one...

    NEWNAN, Ga. — A heavily militarized police force of some 400 officers aggressively patrolled a small neo-Nazi rally in this city 40 miles southwest of Atlanta on Saturday and arrested about 10 counterprotesters, many for the crime of wearing a mask. Police officers arrived before the rally began and approached a group of about 50 anti-fascist protesters. They demanded the protesters remove their masks or face arrest. The officers — who wore bulletproof vests and helmets, and carried semi-automatic rifles — cornered the anti-fascist protesters, then grabbed those who were still masked, tossing them to the ground and handcuffing them....

There was no crime in progress, no disturbance. The suspect appears to have walked to the front of the business and shot both men...

    Notorious street-gang MS-13 has reportedly ordered its members to “take out” police officers in New York; hoping to send a strong message to authorities following a serious crackdown on the group throughout the region. According to the New York Post, the NYPD is on high-alert after a confidential informant told police that gang members were given a green light to murder local police officers; particularly in the nearby town of Hempstead on Long Island. “The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in...

    Three former New York City cops were busted Wednesday and charged with ripping off the federal government with $1.4 million in false disability claims. One of the ex-cops, Gerard Scparta, 53, stands accused of stealing $638,000 from the Social Security Administration over two decades with fake claims that he suffered from depression and anxiety. In reality, he was earning big bucks — as much as $1.6 million between 2004 and last year — as a security guard and host at an unnamed strip club, the feds said. Scparta, of Campbell Hall, NY, was allegedly helped by a co-worker, who is...

    On the heels of police officers shooting a young, unarmed black man to death in Sacramento, California, last month, state lawmakers announced a first-of-its-kind bill on Monday that raises the standard for when officers may open fire. The proposed legislation would change the guidance in California’s use of force laws so that police may open fire ”‘only when necessary’ rather than ‘when reasonable,’” Sacramento-based Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D), said at a press conference Tuesday.

    Killer who gunned down NYPD cops in 1971 to walk free A coldblooded cop-killer who gunned down two of New York’s Finest — finishing one off with the officer’s own gun as he begged for his life — will soon walk out of prison a free man. Domestic terrorist Herman Bell, one of three Black Revolutionary Army thugs who in 1971 gunned down NYPD Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones in a cowardly ambush, has been granted parole, authorities announced Wednesday. Despite decades of insisting that he’s a “political prisoner” who was set up, Bell finally convinced the Gov. Cuomo-appointed...

    Parents up in arms after NYPD removes cops from schools The last NYPD cops assigned full-time to New York City public schools are being moved out — despite nationwide calls for heightened security in the wake of last month’s Florida shootings. As the nation mourned the 17 victims of the school massacre at Parkland, Fla., the NYPD was removing Sgt. Raul Espinet from his post at Francis Lewis HS in Fresh Meadows, Queens — where he had worked for more than a dozen years. Parents, teachers and students are livid over the beloved cop’s departure. “My colleagues think it’s outrageous...

    Roundly vilified for not entering a Parkland high school during a mass shooting, Broward Deputy Scot Peterson insisted publicly that he believed that gunfire was happening outside on campus — not from inside the building. But internal radio dispatches released by the sheriff's office Thursday show Peterson immediately fixated on Building 12 and even radioed that gunfire was happening “inside.” And, just as school shooter Nikolas Cruz was fleeing the building after killing 17 people, Peterson warned his fellow officers to stay away — even as wounded students and staff lay inside . . . “Do not approach the...
