Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

Well, if the black lives matter movement wasn't busy before Trump got sworn in...

Quote:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Justice Department officials to review reform agreements with troubled police forces nationwide, saying it was necessary to ensure these pacts do not work against the Trump administration’s goals of promoting officer safety and morale while fighting violent crime.

In a two-page memo released Monday, Sessions said agreements reached previously between the department’s civil rights division and local police departments — a key legacy of the Obama administration — will be subject to review by his two top deputies, throwing into question whether all of the agreements will stay in place.

The memo was released not long before the department’s civil rights lawyers asked a federal judge to postpone until at least the end of June a hearing on a sweeping police reform agreement, known as a consent decree, with the Baltimore Police Department that was announced just days before President Trump took office.

“The Attorney General and the new leadership in the Department are actively developing strategies to support the thousands of law enforcement agencies across the country that seek to prevent crime and protect the public,” Justice officials said in their filing. “The Department is working to ensure that those initiatives effectively dovetail with robust enforcement of federal laws designed to preserve and protect civil rights.”

Sessions has often criticized the effectiveness of consent decrees and has vowed in recent speeches to more strongly support law enforcement.

Since 2009, the Justice Department opened 25 investigations into law enforcement agencies and has been enforcing 14 consent decrees, along with some other agreements. Civil rights advocates fear that Sessions’s memo could particularly imperil the status of agreements that have yet to be finalized, such as a pending agreement with the Chicago Police Department.


“This is terrifying,” said Jonathan Smith, executive director of the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, who spent five years as the department’s chief of special litigation, overseeing investigations into 23 police departments such as New Orleans, Cleveland and Ferguson, Mo. “This raises the question of whether, under the current attorney general, the Department of Justice is going to walk away from its obligation to ensure that law enforcement across the country is following the Constitution.”

The Baltimore agreement, reached after Freddie Gray died in April 2015 following an injury in police custody, calls for changes including training officers on how to resolve conflicts without force. The Justice Department asked for 90 additional days to assess whether the agreement fits with the “directives of the President and the Attorney General,” according to the filing Monday evening in U.S District Court of the District of Maryland. U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar had scheduled the public hearing for Thursday.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

Quote:
Police accountability activist Jose LaSalle has released portions of audio secretly recorded inside an NYPD precinct last summer—recordings that, according to LaSalle, prove police officers tampered with evidence and fabricated charges against him because of his work monitoring police activity.

The audio was recorded on LaSalle's phone in August, after he was arrested while filming what he says was an improper stop-and-frisk carried out by three plainclothes officers outside the Patterson Houses in Mott Haven. He was initially charged with possessing a radio that could transmit over police frequencies, though LaSalle maintains that it was a legal two-way walkie-talkie.

In excerpts of recordings from those devices, voices can be heard apparently celebrating the arrest of LaSalle, who founded the South Bronx-based group Cop Watch Patrol Unit in 2011. As several people congratulate the people who LaSalle says are the arresting officers for busting LaSalle on a felony, someone chants, "It's a party, it's a party, it's a party, hey!" Another voice asks, "Now for him, filming is a crime, right?"

The Bronx District Attorney's Office declined to prosecute the case, and LaSalle was released the following day, with his two cell phones and GoPro.

Following his release, LaSalle went to a diner on 161st Street with fellow cop-watchers, some of whom tweeted that he had evidence suggesting the arrest was illegal. About 30 minutes later, witnesses say, four police officers showed up at the diner to re-arrest LaSalle. Video of the encounter shows one officer receiving directions by phone, then telling the other officers, "We need his personal effects."

LaSalle was then brought to a holding cell, where he claims officers demanded that he unlock his cellphones. He refused to do so, and was released a few hours later, this time with an order to appear in court for an unspecified crime. The new charges, he would later learn, were obstructing governmental administration, harassment, and disorderly conduct. His recording devices, from which he had not yet obtained the audio, were reclassified as evidence and confiscated.

About an hour after his second arrest, LaSalle says that he received an email from an app on his phone alerting him that someone had attempted to unlock it with an incorrect passcode. Screenshots of the alert shared with Gothamist show that the attempt was made in the vicinity of the Police Service Area 7 station house, where LaSalle had been jailed. Since the officers didn't have a warrant, the failed login could qualify as an illegal search, according to LaSalle's attorney.]

DC police officer allegedly paid teen for sex act, demanded money back at gunpoint

Quote:
WASHINGTON - A D.C. police officer allegedly used social media to arrange a sex-for-cash meeting with a 15-year-old girl then demanded the money back from the teen at gunpoint.

27-year-old Chukwuemeka Ekwonna, an officer with the Metropolitan Police Department, was arrested Thursday night at his Glenn Dale, Maryland home. Ekwonna faces several charges, including second-degree assault, armed robbery, and prostitution, connected to the alleged incident that is said to have occurred in January of this year.
Investigators say Ekwonna met the teen through the social media app,"Tagged" and that the teen agreed to meet with him in person to engage in sexual activity in exchange for money. On January 9th, the two met outside this apartment complex on Old Stage road in Glen Burnie, Maryland where the victim says she got into his car.

According to the charging document, the two had sex and the officer paid the teen 80 dollars. But when she tried to get out of the car police say the victim found the doors locked. The officer then produced a gun and demanded the money back. The teen told police she gave the money back to Ekwonna and exited the vehicle.

The Department of Social Services alerted the Department of Homeland Security's human trafficking task force after learning of the alleged incident. DHS then notified the Anne Arundel County Police Department. Marc Limansky with Anne Arundel County police says detectives only learned of the incident after the teen went looking for help.

I'm guessing this department has a strict rule against hiring anyone who has a dick bigger than three inches.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

Funny how when heroin and other opiates were ravaging the inner cities amongst minorities and the poor, it was never a problem.
I'm sure David Clarke got a boner watching that video. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't decapitate a minority to get their message across.
