    Daniel Martinez sued, settled for more than 20KA northern New Mexico man claims he ended up in handcuffs because of his lapdog. “I felt something pinch me and I turned around and I saw the dog, so I kicked at it,” State Police officer Nicholas Levine can be heard saying to other officers on dashcam video. In April of last year, 25-year-old Daniel Martinez and his grandmother got into an argument at their home near Espanola. Emotions were already running high in the family at the time Martinez said, “My grandfather had recently passed away.” Martinez said he has a...

    VALPARAISO — A 12-year-old faces two counts of resisting law enforcement for his alleged actions when he refused to clean up spilled milk in the Ben Franklin Middle School cafeteria. A police officer was helping supervise the lunch period on Tuesday, because both the principal and assistant principal were in a meeting, and the boy got into a confrontation with a school staff member. After refusing to wipe up the mess, according to the police report, the sixth-grader refused to sit and wait for the other students to return to class so the staff member could deal with him individually....

    News Register, McMinnville, OR ^ | 2/12/2011 | Hannah Hoffman
    Juvenile Department Director Tim Loewen and Detention Center Director Scott Paasch explained that youths are held pre-trial only when a judge feels they constitute a flight risk or pose a danger to themselves or others. By virtue of being in the detention center, they argued, the youths present a danger that needs to be rectified by handcuffing them while they interact with the public in the hallways. Lawrence said such precautions should be applied far more selectively. She said shackling juveniles can prove psychologically damaging, making youthful offenders feel like hardened criminals or kindling repressed memories of abuse.

    HELP - I'm handcuffed and I can't get up! A Connecticut hubby called cops on his estranged wife after she handcuffed herself to him and bit him in a bizarre confrontation captured on a 911 tape. "My wife has handcuffed me - she's attacking me," Robert Drawbough moaned to an emergency dispatcher in suburban Fairfield. "Please come and help me get out of here." Drawbough complained to cops that he woke up to find his wife had snapped the 'cuffs on both of them to stop him from bolting. He told the puzzled dispatcher he couldn't keep Helen Sun, 37,...

    Many Republicans were sharply affected by last November's disastrous election and have become more pragmatic about their priorities. Mr. Giuliani, while adhering to his positions, insists he is a strict constitutionalist and will appoint judges who are the same. While gun control is just one of the hot-button issues that may present a problem for Mr. Giuliani during the Republican primary campaign, there is an overriding issue that might make this and other social issues moot — the war on terror. I briefly met Mr. Giuliani in 2004 at a Harvard Club luncheon honoring the posthumous publication of William E....

    Two days before a King County deputy sheriff's live-in lover allegedly shot and killed a convenience-store clerk, he used the deputy's handcuffs and gun to rape a man in their Kenmore home while the cop slept upstairs, according to police reports. The incident in August is one of many revelations regarding King County Sheriff's Deputy Ferenc Zana's disastrous affair with a mentally ill felon. They were contained in more than 900 pages of documents the Sheriff's Office was forced to produce Monday under a court order obtained by the Seattle P-I.

    A Seattle police officer called to a fight between a man and a woman made no arrests and took no report, instead quitting his shift early to take the woman involved to his place for sex. After an investigation prompted by the woman's fiancé, Officer Lance Basney was suspended for 30 days without pay. But this week, Basney succeeded in appealing that discipline before the city's Public Safety Civil Service Commission; his punishment was reduced to five days. Still, an attorney for the Police Department was pleased, saying the finding supports the department's position that even off-duty conduct matters. "We're...

    Several of my recent threads / comments have related to a DUI arrest I recently had. I will not defend that. One of the more interesting subjects which came up when I was in jail was whether you can be arrested for "drunk in public" when you are on your own property. My position is that this should not be possible. I like to sit out on my front porch, have a drink or three, and study my shubbery. I am not driving or doing anything else which I consider to be wrong. The overwhelming consensus among my cell-mates is...

    It used to be red - before an unfortunate encounter with a bottle of bleach. That's the last time anything even remotely pink hung in my closet. Let's face it, pink is for little girls, Barbie, and of course, the inmates at the Maricopa County jail. For some time now, those in fashionista Sheriff Joe Arpaio's lockup have worn pink underwear and slept on pink sheets. Now they're wearing pink handcuffs, fluorescent, during transport. Seems Sheriff Joe was losing his regular handcuffs to his own deputies and other law enforcement agencies. So he ordered up a thousand of the day-glo...

Jaffee, August 23, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms Nothing has really changed for Democratic hopeful John Kerry, except that real war veterans, like Bob Dole, are questioning the “superficial wounds” and resulting “medals” he received during four (4) months service in Vietnam. Kerry is still flailing, trying to cover up a career punctuated by extreme left-wing politics and flip-flopping by talking to voters about his military service. He squandered his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention by trying to convince Americans that his tour of duty in Vietnam will make him a great commander...

    Ken Lay of Enron Indicted and Arrested By Andrew L. Jaffee, July 8, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms Enron’s ex-Chairman of the Board has been indicted and arrested on charges connected with his former company’s implosion in 2001. Corporate executives at Enron engaged in all sorts of financial manipulations to pump up the company’s stock price. They created complex “partnerships” to hide company debt from shareholders. In 1998, Enron’s share price was at about $20. By 2000, it hit $90. By 2001, the company’s stock was worthless. Enron’s collapse wiped out billions in shareholder value and employee pensions.

    KERRVILLE — In what was practically a self-service arrest, a California man wanted on a murder charge surrendered late Monday at the police station — already handcuffed. “It was kind of unusual,” Police Chief Rob McCutcheon said of the arrest of Gary C. Laine, 48, of Garden Grove, Calif. “I don't recall anyone else ever coming in pre-cuffed, but I've only been here 28 years.” Laine is accused of gunning down his former girlfriend, Kim O'Hara, 44, at a convenience store Thursday in Anaheim, Calif. Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez said O'Hara was eating lunch when a man later identified...

    Handcuffs tip clerk on escapee buying bolt-cutters The Associated Press MAGNOLIA, Ark. — James Cotton looked just like any other Wal-Mart customer buying a bolt cutter at 4:30 in the morning, until the cashier noticed that Cotton was wearing handcuffs. According to police, the clerk took Cotton's money, gave him the bolt cutter, then called officers. Cotton, of Cooper, Texas, was apprehended minutes later and charged with escaping from Haynesville, La., police. The Wal-Mart workers said that, after buying the bolt cutter Saturday morning, Cotton went into a bathroom and came out free of the handcuffs. Magnolia police arrived and...

    SEATTLE - The handcuffs were a badge of pride for the cop who carried them, like a ballplayer's old glove. Once shiny, they had worn a dull and heavy gray over decades of use. Cheryl Payseno shows the handcuffs that once belonged to her husband, detective Paul Smith, who died of leukemia in 1985. After Smith's death, detective Randy Mullinax, left, inherited them. On Nov. 30, 2001, Mullinax used them to cuff Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer. Randy Mullinax inherited them from Paul Smith, a veteran King County detective who died of leukemia in 1985. Since then, the cuffs...
