Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

Man, what a douche.

But, here's a bigger douche.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...302_story.html

In sex sting, police pose as 15-year-old on Craigslist — and nab another cop

A police sex-sting operation in Northern Virginia, aimed at finding men who wanted to have sex or commit indecent acts with juveniles, has nabbed a police officer in Maryland, officials said Monday.

Christopher Dunkes, 27, a patrolman with the Montgomery County Police Department, answered a Craigslist advertisement posted by an undercover officer who was posing as a 15-year-old girl from Prince William County, detectives said in a criminal complaint filed in Prince William court.

Dunkes emailed and texted with the undercover officer about sex acts, according to the complaint. Dunkes twice proposed a specific act and suggested that they meet in his car, according to the court document. He agreed to meet the undercover officer at a Target store. He was arrested without incident, police said.

Dunkes has been suspended without pay, said Capt. Paul Starks, a Montgomery police spokesman. Dunkes had joined the force in 2014 and most recently had been assigned to the Bethesda bureau.

“We are cooperating with the investigation,” Starks said. “Our internal affairs division is communicating with Prince William County police.”

Dunkes was charged in Virginia with three counts of using a communication device to facilitate offenses with juveniles, according to Prince William County police.

Dunkes was being held without bond Monday, said an official at the Prince William jail. It was not clear from court records whether he has an attorney.

The week-long sting operation began June 6, Prince William police said. It was a proactive operation and not in response to any specific incident.

“During this operation, undercover detectives used social media and an undisclosed online site where they posed as underage juveniles,” Prince William police said in the statement. “Male suspects contacted the undercover detectives and, during the course of communications, solicited sexual or indecent acts. These conversations involving the accused parties took place through electronic means. In each of the incidents, the suspect made arrangements to meet the undercover detective at a public location in Prince William County. Once there, detectives arrested the individual without incident.”

Prince William police identified six other men arrested as Steven Castillo, 20, of Woodbridge; Jeffrey H. Dimond, 35, of Fredericksburg; Curtis M. Jenkins, 54, of Fairfax; Jordan Kolbinskie, 23, of Manassas; David Lee Mathes, 58, of Warrenton; and Chad M. Warner, 24, of Sterling.

Did the cops allow Funky Dunkes to arrest himself?

Unless I missed it in another thread, surprised no one's mentioned Alton Sterling and how he was shot dead by cops for, well, for being black, if we're being honest.

Well, you did indeed miss it. By a long shot.

And you're not even close to being honest.

But that's expected.

This person went for a gun twice. And a gun was recovered. Officer stated in videos he went for a gun in his pockets before takedown, then once down, the person went for the gun AGAIN, while still resisting police officers.

Gun was recovered from dead person's pocket.

But yeah, have fun with your criminal lives matter thang-uh-lang.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

So sad.

He had a gun, but he wasn't going for it. He was pinned down and immobile when they shot him. There's video proof of this.

Regardless, if you're trying to 'get to the bottom of this' by looking for Sterling's crime or trying to figure out how to justify these actions so YOU can go on believing the system isn't broken.. fine. But you've missed it. You've disregarded the hurting... You've decided your comfy idea of what is happening in America today is more important than the injustice that is ACTUALLY happening to our brothers and sisters at alarming rates. You have no idea, and that's what's sad. Though you sure seem to care about injustice when it concerns Clinton...

People are hurting over shit like this and we need to stop trying to quantify or disprove people's hurt. Let's be a listening people, and propel change, otherwise, what are you really doing?

Cops deliver a beatdown to a guy who is surrendering.

Nice of the cameraman in the news helicopter to zoom out when the beatdown starts. Wouldn't want the police to come off looking bad.

That one is heartbreaking. Hear the little girl telling her that she was here for mom at the end of the video when she starts crying?



Dude was a cafeteria supervisor at a Montessori school.

The terrorists we face wear badges.

For those of you who went to sleep peacefully last night, there are others who will never awaken — again.

For those of you who talk of terrorism as if it is somewhere else on the planet, think about the terror black people in America face, from those “public servants” called police, who become our judges, juries and executioners.
It's a pretty strong sentiment but it's becoming impossible to deny.

Speaking as a former news photographer and someone who has been in the control room of a TV station when our helicopter is shooting the end of a car chase, we do that so if the cops blow the guy away, we aren't on a close-up. This happened a few months ago and our director was screaming to zoom out so we didn't show a graphic death on live TV. Luckily the guy wasn't shot but it looked like it might happen.

White folk: I have a 2nd Amendment right to carry a gun to me safe from tyranny.

Absolutely nothing.

Whatever your color, waving a gun around in public will get you police attention.

Contrary to Twitter intelligence.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

Also, no one was "waving" their gun around. Sheesh. It's sickening seeing people wanting to put blame on those who were murdered. Doesn't even matter if they were being dumb (and even that is questionable), doesn't mean it's okay that they were shot to death so mercilessly by people who are sworn to protect us.

A white guy with a gun is a patriot and a force of liberty, justice, and self-reliance. A black guy with a gun is up to no good.

Duh.

Jesus Christ. Looks like straight up murder. Not sure how that woman held it together like she did.

Paid leave imminent.

Re: The "Cops Behaving Badly" Thread

Being a black man it's sad that my there is a decent chance that when it's my time to go it will be by a police officer, hell they might even sprinkle some crack on me so they can say I deserved it. Unfortunately I won't be around to read people on DVDTalk say I must have been waving a gun around or disobeying the cops orders. Something, anything to say try and explain why it was my fault for being gunned down by a cop.

I wonder, if it were a white guy, with a gun (in an open carry state) acting the same way...would he be alive today? Hmmmmmm.....

I was responding to the Baton Rouge incident with the statement.

However, if any weapon is used in an intimidating manor, no matter the state, you just lost your rights and are subject to questioning by law enforcement.

Yep, paid leave. We're watching a report right now.

No criminal history. A permit to carry. Reaching to get his license as ordered. Shot through a car window with a 4-year old in the back seat.

And yet, somehow it will be his fault.
