Phoenix Cops Assault Veteran During His Physical Training

When: 27 April 2013

Where: Phoenix, AZ

Individuals Responsible: Maryvale Precinct Squad 82X: Jacob Lewis-Badge 8247, Ryan Petker-8097, Travis Lachance-7854, Carl Ramirez-8159, Jesse Jansma-R1074; Other City agents (Sqd 81G): Jose Rodriguez-9318, Ryan Nielsen-8028, Justin Gierish-9127, (Sqd 82F) Stanley Warrior-7295, Gregory Golisch-9130, (Sqd 82G) Carlos Sanders, Todd Murphy-8965, Randy Johnson-9203, (82F) Warren Brewer

Contact Information for Responsible Parties: Maryvale Police Precinct, 602-495-5008

On the evening of 27 April, I was conducting PT (physical training) in the open public area of West Phoenix, Arizona. This PT involves long distance running and batteries of push-ups along a route and for many years, has been conducted in Phoenix with training devices (firearm simulators) and a set of military LBV (load bearing vest). Simulators are sold in bright blue, orange, red and black. They are injection-molded dyed gel, possess no moving parts, are incapable of expelling a projectile and are of the identical variety used by varying police agencies.

During the evening, in full value solar light, while I was 100 meters from the end of my 14-mile run, about 14 city government agents (cops) blocked my rear and conducted hostilities against me. I represented no hazard to anyone, nor self, nor public, property or city agents. I presented no resistance and INTENTIONALLY REFRAINED from touching any of them. At the end of this 65-75 second event, after having been shoved over a 20” high wall, the city employees arrested and booked me into the Maricopa County jail network.

The City of Phoenix charged me with “2 counts of felony Aggravated Assault on an officer, 3 counts of felony Resisting Arrest, & 3 counts of Disorderly Conduct”. The City of Phoenix reported my name to the Department of Homeland Security as being a “Probable Terrorist”.

In October 2013, I initiated a Notice of Claim, declaring damages & demanding recourse. I did not have a lawyer. Several attempts at contact were made with the City Police Chief-Dan Garcia, the County Attorney-Bill Montgomery, the City Mayor-Greg Stanton & the Internal Affairs office (PSB-Professional Standards Bureau).

Until 9 January 2014, none of my attempts at contact were successful. Finally, Mr Joe Knott, of Internal Affairs, responded. For several months, I had been submitting requests for the Incident Report concerning my false arrest. Finally, after 8 months + 2 days (30 December) of the Incident Report being restricted from public view, a copy was made available to me. It amounted to a 17-page fiction. Each page with content was drenched in cop lies and deceit.

Currently, I am attempting to gain public support. There is a current Notice of Claim in effect which has been received by the City of Phoenix. There has been no response. For further information, see my Facebook page and my GoFundMe campaign, where I’m trying to raise funds to hire an attorney.

San Fran Undercovers Stare Down Woman For ???

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Princess M. Jacob-Fambro shared the video below via CopBlock.org/Submit, which details a couple standoffish, unprofessional individuals who wear badges emblazoned with “San Francisco Police.” It’s hard to imagine anyone in that community would choose to pay for such a “service.”

Date of Interaction: August 19, 2014
Individuals Involved: Fergus, Bangas
Outfit: San Francisco Police Department
Phone: 415-553-0123

My Daughter and I was standing at the bus stop, when a undercover car pulled over and four officers jumped out and walked directly up to us and harassed us FOR NO REASON.

I was afraid for my daughter and myself.

I believe that if I hadn’t kept REPEATING that I was Running For President 2016,  me and my daughter would have became the next MIKE BROWN. I’ve seen police murder innocent people for no reason all my life….PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO so that we can End Police Brutality!!!

Editors Note: It’s unclear, why Fergus, Bangas, and their two colleagues felt it worth their time to surround and surveil Jacob-Fambro and her daughter – perhaps because she’s gives her affiliation for her presidential run as being with The Revolutionary Party? Regardless, the real issue is why such actions by self-described “public officials” is considered appropriate.

Union Square Park ‘Free Speech’ False Arrest by NYPD Employees

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

The information below was shared by Rocco Iannacchino via CopBlock.org/Submit about a less-than-savory interaction he had with NYPD’s “finest” in 2011. It’s unclear, despite the objective video, whom Rocco supposedly wronged, and why he was taken away by folks wearing badges. Clearly others present – those filming and chanting “let him go!” – didn’t think his actions necessitated police action.

Date of Interaction: 08-08-2011
Individuals Responsible: Unknown
Outfit: New York Police Department, 13th Precinct
Phone: (212) 477-7411

NYPD ‘AIDED REPORT’ Doesn’t Match Up To Video Evidence

I recently filed a Freedom Of Information Request with the NYPD for specific files that pertained to my false arrest at Union Square Park on August 8, 2011.

In the NYPD ‘Aided Report’ that I received it was apparent to me that many inconsistencies and untruths were reported in the file. The NYPD’s description of the incident I was involved in was completely fabricated. The video that was taken of the events that transpired on August 8, 2011 supports my claims that the NYPD Report is completely false. The NYPD Report States: “AIDED FEARED THAT EVERYONE AROUND HIM WAS TRYING TO KILL HIM AND ACTED IRRATIONAL /PARANOID; WAVING HIS ARMS AND YELLING IN FRONT OF PARK AT LOCATION.”

Video evidence of the Union Square – Police interaction tells a different story. There was no such “fear” displayed by me that “everyone was trying to kill me.” On the contrary, I was speaking calmly and rationally in a controlled manner in front of a very friendly and encouraging diverse group of New Yorkers.

The video doesn’t show anything the police have written in the report. I never “waved my arms,” or “yelled” in front of the crowd. Furthermore, the report states: “was irrational/paranoid, thought everyone was trying to kill him.” If I believed “everyone was trying to kill me,” why was I talking normally to the crowd and the police if “everyone was trying to kill me’?

This NYPD Report is a product of pure fiction. The video tape of the events that transpired on August 8, 2011 firmly proves this.

I was falsely arrested, or as the NYPD puts it, “Aided,” for speaking out against a secret government that had been harassing me. If, as the NYPD Report states, I was “irrational/paranoid,” how then did I manage to attract hundreds of people to what I was saying? If I was ‘dangerous’ this crowd would of moved on. The crowd would of soon picked up I was ‘mentally unbalanced’ and would have ignored me. However, this did not happen. The crowd grew larger and larger. I was falsely arrested and medically drugged for what I was saying. This is UnConstitutional.

In essence, this is a case of the police and the hospital creating a ‘mental illness’ by proxy. Psychiatric confinement of sane people is a particularly pernicious form of repression.

Video just surfaced a few months ago. I have a Federal Lawsuit pending with The Southern District Court of New York. The Commission to Combat Police Corruption forwarded my complaint to NYPD Internal Affairs. I’ve also submitted a FOIA Request for the Identities of the “police.” FDNY who handles ambulance dispatch has been notified by me that I demand to know the names of the ‘Emt’s’ that accompanied me to Bellevue. All the best!

Deputy Steven Lyles “Feared for his life”

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

By Tim @wkshacopblock

On June 2, 2014 a call was made to the Waukesha County dispatch center about a man with who had been “missing” approximately 2 hours. The family member we’ll call Jane  stated the man drinks a lot and was drinking that day. She stated he may be at his favorite bar or out at his 10 acre property in a rural area near Milwaukee. Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department showed up and shot the unarmed, sleeping or passed out man, in the arm. The Waukesha Police Department was called upon to clear this Deputy at all costs. They obliged.

Earlier that day, a man we’ll call Jon Doe had fallen at home. He went to the hospital and after approximately 3 hours of waiting he walked out apparently out of frustration over the long wait. He returned home and had been drinking according to Jane. At some point that afternoon he left the house in his vehicle for an unknown destination. She stated she was concerned, and after significant prodding by dispatch, stated in the past Jon had said “If he wants to drink himself to death, let him.” Time to ramp things up.

After speaking with several people who knew the area police found Jon about 50′ off the road in his parked vehicle at his tree farm. It was around 8:30pm and was still light out. Deputy Steven Lyles showed up with two other enforcers, one armed with an assault rifle. Bringing the assault rifle to the “welfare check” indicates  the mentality of the cops on scene.

I listened to the interview of Doe conducted by Detective Benitez of Waukesha PD. Doe was a credible blue collar guy who clearly wanted to get away from the nagging about him drinking and have some piece and quiet in the woods. He had a small bottle of vodka in the car with him and some masonry tools on the floor of his vehicle for his job. He had no guns and stated he was napping at the time of the shooting. He stated he heard nobody and didn’t hear the apparent 1 command by Lyles. All the car windows were closed at the time.

But the police have a different way of explaining what happened. Waukesha PD was chosen as the “investigators” of this shooting. Here’s their version:

Deputy Pawlak was on scene with Lyles toting the assault rifle which is likely 1 of the 120 plus a grenade launcher Waukesha County obtained through the military’s 1033 program. He stated immediately after Lyles first ordered the man out of the car he heard a “pop.” He stated he wasn’t sure if it was Lyles or the sleeping man who fired the shot. He stated he could only see Jon’s head from the right rear of Jon’s vehicle. Deputy Robakowski also did not know who fired the shot and also stated the shot was fired immediately after the command to get out of the car was given. Immediately after shooting Jon, Lyles is quoted as saying “What do you got, what do you got!”

Deputy Chief Dennis Angle, arguably the most dangerous cop in the county based on his de facto “Beat and Delete” dash cam policies, wraps up the package nicely for the DA to rubber stamp the shooting as “justified.” Angle refers to the time the man was sleeping as “conspicuously ignoring commands.” He also says Lyles claims Jon was “tracking his movements in the rear view and side mirrors of the car.” For good measure the term “1000 yard stare” was tossed in as icing on the cake. Of course the other 2 cops on scene saw non of this because it didn’t happen. Angle goes on and on about how since the cop thought he saw a gun he was okay to shoot. But there was no gun. So…since there was a masonry trowl on the passenger floor the vehicle, Angle goes on about it’s deadly possibilities as if it was the “weapon” Lyles claims to have seen.

I’m not going to go into how destructive this incident has likely been for the shooting victim or the caller (or us taxpayers.) Incidentally the caller refused to speak to cops for an interview and is on record telling them to stop calling her for a statement. The idea that simply on his word, a man who goes and checks on another man’s welfare and shoots him gets a pass is absurd. The guy shot an innocent person on his own land doing absolutely nothing illegal.

I don’t believe Deputy Steven Lyles deserves to be in jail. I don’t think a criminal prosecution would serve anyone. I do believe this is the wrong job for Lyles. I understand that he’s been trained, through his 9 years “on the force,” to view every single person and thing as a threat to his life. I’m sure that has something of a brainwashing effect and he was likely putting his own desire to “get home safe” above the reality that this was just a guy taking a nap. That shouldn’t be the standard. This could have easily have become a case of contagious fire set off by a skiddish cop who has proven he has no business in this line of work.

Here’s Local Fox 6 initial coverage of the incident.

Tickets to Waukesha PD Circus

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

 

By Tim @wkshacopblock

The children working for Waukesha Police Department have again brought fodder to the front page of CopBlock.org at the mere expense of numerous citizens’ time and well-being (lives.)  Black people always get an extra taste of “justice” in Waukesha and if you try to record it, you may be extra-judicially punished. The mood of WPD as of late has been that of a carnival where the kids run around drunk on love and sex. But these kids are also drunk on power.

In spring of 2013 some black people were driving around Waukesha. That was their first mistake. After spending 30 minutes with the driver the cops decide to give him a pre-release pat down for “officer safety.” Things take a turn as is usual and the guy ends up underneath a pile of Waukesha’s Finest.

As my friend TJ is videotaping this from across the street in front of his own home Ofc. Jessica Trucksa barks at him not to get involved. He’s watching a non-violent guy getting shaken down and having his car taken by armed and aggressive people. In true WPD fashion the guy who’s “not under arrest” and “not in any trouble” is taken to the ground because after calmly interacting with him for 1/2 an hour Ofc. Steven Cizinski remembers he forgot to pat him down for drugs before he’s allowed to walk away.  As Waukesha Cop Jeremy Bousman says “…I say take ‘em all (sic) regardless…” That’s exactly what happened in the end. But no arrest is complete in Waukesha without dash-cam failure. Check.

The Hunt For The Camera Man

TJ called me the night this all happened and told me after the take down that Sgt. Dave Wanner was trespassing on his property taking down license plates.  Ofc. Trucksa wrote in her report that TJ was a “member of CopBlock” and was anti-government.  She didn’t mention he’s also a psych major at UW Milwaukee and knows that he has the right to film cops. Trucksa applied for an arrest warrant for TJ on an obstructing charge but never got one. That didn’t stop her.

After coming to TJ’s house several times over the next few days to harass him they finally picked him up a week or so later while on a walk with his mom and her dachshunds. Shock and awe took effect as 4-6 cops took this man, accused of “obstructing,” into custody at the behest of Ofc. Jessica Trucksa.

He was taken to the PD and was thoroughly searched. Trucksa had him finger printed and photograph but not charged. She issued no citation or criminal charges at the time. We don’t even know if the case was referred for prosecution because the PD records custodian has no records of any nolle prosse documents from the DA’s office. This arrest has all but disappeared. Was this just a revenge arrest. Did TJ commit the unforgivable sin of contempt of cop? We now know that wouldn’t be outside the scope of possibility with Waukesha cops.

Death Threats and Hit Men

In a previous article I laid out the cases against SWAT Sgt. Gregg Satula and Ofc. Michelle Enderle. Satula went to the home of his then wife Ofc. Jessica Satula-Trucksa’s lover. In a PD investigation initiated by my article Satula wrote a narrative of the events which he says occurred that night. Satula wrote that he went to Todd Kraine’s house to confront him about the affair (he states Ofc. Trucksa was having multiple affairs) Todd and his wife were alleged to be having. He admitted he was yelling, he admitted he was swearing, and he admitted he was armed. He didn’t admit to telling Todd he would “put a bullet in his and his own wife’s head” though he didn’t deny it. Satula also stated he had lengthy conversations with multiple PD supervisors the next day in anticipation that something may happen to him due to his crazy actions. He also confirmed that Ofc. Michelle Enderle lied in her official capacity regarding Todd’s 911 call she was dispatched to. Instead of documenting that she encountered her co-worker and Todd, as required by law, she documented “Gone on arrival.” That’s called Misconduct in Office and is crime in WI. She wanted to make sure no fellow cops would get in trouble.

During the time of my friend TJ’s arrest, Ofc. Trucksa was involved in a divorce from SWAT Sgt. Satula. She had also filed a (TRO) temporary restraining order against Todd Kraines apparently at the behest of Waukesha Police Chief Russel Jack. The TRO was based on Trucksa’s petition that she was “fearful” along with a text Todd sent of him with a gun to his mouth. But according to the court record Trucksa sent numerous disturbing texts too. She refers to wanting to commit suicide multiple times and actually states she was “jealous” of a lady who had tried to die by taking pills whom she encountered at work the night before. She stated the lady was in the hospital and may or may not live. Ofc. Trucksa also texts Todd that she has put a “hit” out on her personal trainer who she refers to as “trainer boy” in court records.  She assures Todd that “Mikey” will conduct the hit, apparently upon her request. It doesn’t seem like asking someone to kill someone else is consistent with her Oath of Office.

And it goes on and on…

“Must Be a Circus in Town” 

The fact is, these people acting like angst-filled horny teenagers are the ones making some pretty big life and death decisions for the citizens in Waukesha. I’m the last one who should be throwing stones from my glass house. But as a “Law Enforcement Officer” in a state which lists adultery as a Felony, and considering the mental state of these people, most would be hard pressed to say these are the best folks for this job.

This situation falls upon the shoulders of our police Chief. He’s willing to turn a blind eye to almost anything his officers do wrong.  We just settled a $300,000 Federal Suit in June and no apology yet from the PD. The Chief himself was involved in an incident where an SL6 Batan Launcher was used against a drunk and passed out female which ripped a 6 inch gash in her leg. It required 30 some stitches to close and we (taxpayers) paid between $10,000 and $1 million to resolve that case in 2012.

A week after Ofc. Jessica Trucksa filed the TRO against Todd (and months after the hit man text) she sent an email to Todd’s mom (which is also in the court record.) She offered Todd’s mom free tickets to the Circus. The exchange is odd and the offer is inappropriate to this guy’s mother after accusing her son, apparently with the help of the Chief, of being dangerous to her. Todd’s mom scolded her knowing Todd was not a true threat. It seems I’m not the only one living in a glass house.

Although it’s far from free, seats are always available to the Waukesha PD Circus.

Waukesha Police Department Facebook Page

Side Note: I planned to address  Ofc. Jeremy Bousman, Ofc. Darin Wittnebel, Ofc. Michelle Enderle casually discussing dumping evidence in this article.  I’ll be working on it this week and plan to pursue criminal charges when I find they dumped evidence in a Felony case.

Green Bay PD Beats Down Citizens and Dissent

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

 

By Tim @wkshacopblock

Got something to say about your buddy’s arrest? Don’t say it in Green Bay, WI because you might get an ass kicking.  In fact, don’t even say something about said beat-down on their Facebook Page, unless it’s in a “beatdown related approved portion” of their page.

In April of 2014 Green Bay cop Derick Wicklund decided to unleash his childhood bully on a guy who dared to say “Fuck You!” to him while he was arresting a guy for the crime of having a beer on the sidewalk. Yesterday, it was revealed that GBPD and some other government agency rubber stamped the beating of this guy.

“Operation Frogger”

This morning I posted a comment to GBPD’s post about “Operation Frogger” which discussed a crackdown on drivers who don’t stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. I believe it’s a noble cause but with the beatdown fresh on my mind I posted; “Derick Wicklund will be “tuning up” violators with a wink from the Chief” on the GBPD Facebook post. It was promptly deleted and I was blocked from commenting.

I contacted the PD and spoke with Lt. Chad Ramos. We had a discussion and he stated he’d get back to me. He called back a few hours later and informed me that as I had made my comment about the Wicklund beatdown  on the “Operation Frogger” post instead of one of the posts which discussed the beatdown, the deletion of my comment was appropriate. Apparently I am now banned for life from commenting on their page. Ramos stated that the rules pertaining to “off topic” posts and the lifetime ban were justified and reasonable under WI First Amendment (pertaining to tax payer funded pages.)

I’m sure Green Bay PD would be happy to delete your comment on their Facebook Page too!

This Week’s Corrupt Stories

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

We present a trio of law enforcement miscreants, including a Houston deputy who was ripping off dealers and selling their wares, a North Carolina cop with a pill problem, and a Baltimore schools cop who was flipping rocks on the side. Let’s get to it:

In Houston, a Harris County sheriff’s deputy was arrested Monday just after selling cocaine, marijuana, Loricet, and Soma to an undercover officer. Deputy Christopher Ellis, 34, is charged with two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. He went down after investigators received information that he was stealing drugs from dealers while on duty, then reselling them for a profit. At last report, he was in the Harris County Jail trying to raise $120,000 bail.

In New Bern, North Carolina, a former New Bern police officer pleaded guilty Monday to stealing drug evidence from defendants and from the department evidence room. Frances Sutton admitted taking drugs on at least four occasions. Officials say it was for her personal use. It’s not clear what formal charge she pleaded to, but she will serve between one and two years in prison. Because of her tampering with evidence, nine cases involving six drug defendants had to be dismissed.

In Baltimore, a Baltimore city schools police officer pleaded guilty Tuesday to dabbling in crack cocaine trafficking. Napoleon McLain Jr., 31, admitted buying several ounces of coke between December 2012 and August 2013 and selling the drug to at least four other people, including, unfortunately for him, a snitch. He copped to one count of conspiring to distribute and possess cocaine base. He’s looking at up to 40 years in prison when sentenced in October.

(UPDATED 7/5) Waukesha Police Settle Federal Civil Rights Suit

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

By Tim @wkshacopblock

 

UPDADE 7/5/14: According to records released by Waukesha City Attorney Brian Running: The Settlement was $300,000.

 

A Waukesha area man finally has closure on what was likely one of the worst days of his life. As discussed previously, Waukesha cop Ryan LaFavor beat Mark Schroeder, breaking his ribs, for trying to check on his own teenage daughter’s well being after a car accident. The PD proceeded to delete the dash-cam videos after watching them 20 times and being requested by the defense. This Journal Sentinel article gives more information:

Mark Schroeder, 54, of Wauwatosa had driven up on the scene of a car accident involving his daughter in June 2010. As he tried to approach his daughter, an officer ordered him to stay away. The officer wound up taking Schroeder to the ground, putting a knee in his back, and handcuffing him.

Two months later, Schroeder was charged with resisting arrest. He denied the charge, and as soon as his attorney requested the dash cam video of the arrest be preserved, it was instead destroyed. Police claimed it was a mistake, but a Waukesha judge accused officers involved of bad faith, and dismissed the charge against Schroeder.

In 2013, Schroeder sued. The case had been set for trial Monday, but earlier this month, an attorney for the city and the several officers named as defendants notified the court that the parties had reached a settlement.

The settlement followed the judge’s denial of Waukesha’s attempt to keep any mention of the video’s destruction from being mentioned at trial. While the city claimed the loss of the video was irrelevant to Schroeder’s claim, U.S. District Judge J.P. Stadtmueller strongly disagreed.

“The loss of the video is highly probative of the credibility of the defendants’ witnesses. Because there is a vast gulf between the different accounts of the events, the loss of the one piece of evidence that could readily show exactly what occurred is highly suspicious,” he ruled.

Stadtmueller also denied the city’s request that the case be dismissed.

“The defendants continue to assert that there remain no genuine issues of material fact. They are wrong. All of the claims rest upon the factual version of events that occurred at Mr. Schroeder’s arrest and in the following criminal prosecution, including the destruction of the video.”   Read more…

Civil Rights Violations For All

But the Mark Schroeder beating is just one of many, mostly undocumented incidents, inflicted by Waukesha police on the residents of  our city simply for living here.

A Waukesha man was recently acquitted of possession of pot and a work knife. According to court testimony of  Officer David Neill, Jesse I. was walking down the street around 4am. Neill stated Jesse turned his head a little bit upon seeing the cop. He stated due in part to the fact that there was no other foot traffic (everyone else had probably been arrested) he needed to stop and violate Jesse’s rights. Neill’s vehicle had a dash cam system but as you can assume, “it was not operational.” The judge told Officer Neill in open court, “You can’t do that” and dismissed the 4 trumped up charges.

And of course there are the allegations against Sgt. Gregg Satula.  He’s accused of going to a local man’s house, off duty, and threatening to put a “bullet in his and his (Satula’s) wife’s head” over an alleged affair. I’m waiting on records of the “Investigation” which resulted from this CopBlock article on the matter.

Then there’s “Officer” Jeremy Bousman. He’s a dangerous vindictive man who has no business in any position of authority. In the featured video he’s seen “stopping up anyone in the area” after reports of theft at a local car dealership. That of course is illegal. At the end of this 1 minute video he admits to dumping evidence in a medical marijuana case. He actually laughs about throwing pot plants in a wooded area adjacent to the police department. There’s no doubt he lacks concern for the constraints supposedly placed on him by the constitution and state law.  But Jeremy will be discussed in a future article devoted entirely to him…

I’m sure Waukesha Police would be happy to hear from you on their new Facebook page.

Waukesha SWAT Sgt. Accused of Murder Threats

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Photo Waukesha WI Police Sgt. Gregg Satula (Credit Waukesha PD)

By Tim @wkshacopblock – MilwaukeeCitizenPress

In the latest incident to come to light in what would generously be called an incompetent police department, Waukesha PD’s SWAT Sgt. Gregg Satula is accused of showing up at the home of his wife’s lover, armed and holding his holstered gun, threatening to kill the man and his own wife. The PD’s cover-up machine apparently took effect within minutes of a 911 hang up call and continues to this day.

According to an anonymous source familiar with the incident:

Gregg Satula showed up off duty at Todd Kraine’s (name changed) house to confront him about an affair with his (now ex) wife Waukesha PD officer Jessica Satula-Trucksa. Satula pulled his green Prius down the street from Todd’s house and Todd called 911.  He was startled by Satula approaching his house and hung up the 911 call. Satula then approached Todd’s front door while holding a holstered silver .38 special with approximately a 2″ barrel and a laser sight while yelling and demanding entry into the home. Todd grabbed his own 9mm for protection. Satula was yelling and stated something along the lines of, “I’m on the Tactical Team and I can put a bullet in your and my wife’s head.”

The 911 hang up call was plotted by cell tower to Todd’s address and WPD officer Michelle Enderle was dispatched. She saw (her current direct supervisor) Satula standing at the door and was told it was taken care of and not to include his name on the report. Enderle falsely entered info into the WI State CAD system stating she made no contact. Satula filed for divorce the next day.

Months later, Todd contacted Deputy Chief Dennis Angle to file a complaint about the incident by phone and requested documentation. Dennis Angle refused to document this incident as noted below.

Here’s the email exchange from 8 months after the incident after Todd tried to file a verbal complaint.

-   -   -

4/15/13 Todd wrote to Deputy Chief Dennis Angle:

Dear Mr. Angle: I spoke with you about a month ago with my concerns over Sgt. Satula and officer Trucksa. I would like to get a copy of that report for my court case. Is this something I can procure via email or pick up in person at the station? Please advise.

4/16/13 Dennis Angle responds:

Mr. Kraines, I did not leave a report based on our conversation.

4/16/13 Todd writes:

Mr. Angle, I thought I stated that I wanted those incidents documented? Perhaps there was a misunderstanding?

4/16/13 Deputy Chief Angle writes:

There was no misunderstanding when I spoke to you. We spoke about the computer aided dispatch call (CAD) that documented your call to the police department. That document is attached to this e-mail. However I did not, nor plan to, draft any report documenting our conversation.

-   -   -

Now let’s just look at the individuals involved. I’ve personally had experience with Satula while I was trying to file a complaint against Officer Katrina Frey who illegally detained me for filming which was unsubstantiated. He is also apparently was a member of what I refer to as the “Beat and Delete” club which is a group of Waukesha cops involved in the deliberate destruction of a critical dash cam video showing excessive force. The group was admonished by Judge Stilling for deleting Officer Ryan Lafavor et al’s dash cam video of Mark Schroeder being beaten. She stated it was deleted in “Bad Faith.”  Obviously Satula’s in deep and under the assumption anything will fly.

Deputy Chief Dennis Angle is personally named in the above described “Beat and Delete” Federal Lawsuit pertaining to La Favor‘s beating. Angle once described to me how sometimes officers have to make up their best guess as to what happen then write it as fact on the report. As seen in the emails, he’s shameless and deliberate about his aversion to even document Todd’s complaint. Perhaps he’ll do a better job if he wins the lawsuit he and “eyes wide shut” Police Chief Russel Jack have filed against Waukesha. They claim they should both be paid more than their current rate of $14,000 per month.

Or perhaps Angle will get his act together now that Waukesha PD squads are equipped ALPR systems which, along with several area departments, boasts a database of over 7 million “stored plate reads” saving the GPS location, time of day, and photo of car/driver etcetera for at least 1 year. It’s likely also shared with the Milwaukee Federal “Fusion Center.”  The cited database covers around 250,000 drivers while only 6 million people live in WI. ALPR has been outlawed in NH and similar laws are working their way through other states’ legislatures.

Then there’s Officer Michelle Enderle. Her CAD (computer aided dispatch) entry was made about 2 minutes after arriving on scene at the 911 hang up call and her entry stated the party had left. She likely wanted to get out of the situation ASAP then lie on this state database which could probably land her in a jail cell. Enderle was also present for a not yet released conversation between her, Officer Darin Wittnebel, and Officer Jeremy Bousman in which Bousman is heard laughing, almost hysterically, about dumping evidence in the Kevin J. Noe case (marijuana plants) on Owens Drive which is a small road behind the PD in Waukesha. She’s also facing some other very serious allegations from another incident which I’ll go into detail about this summer.

Prior to publishing this story, I requested comment from Waukesha PD’s Public Information Officer Captain Ron Oremus regarding the allegations (as well as Satula and Angle.)

Here is his response: Your email has given us information that is contradictory to the information we received a year and a half ago about the situation involving Sergeant Satula and Todd Kraines. We will be investigating this new information.

I’m sure they’ll just ask Deputy Chief Dennis Angle to come up with a lie to support the existing lies.

But Waukesha Police Department’s  SWAT Sgt. Gregg Satula placed a little American flag on top of his mountain of damning evidence.

On 8/13/12 (the day after the incident and the day he filed for divorce from Jessica Trucksa) Sgt. Satula sent this to Todd from his personal email which is gregg.satula@redacted.com:

I guess in some strange way I appreciate you taking the time to talk to me and explain your side. I don’t have any reason to believe you lied to me. You don’t have to fear me any more. I’m never going to stop by or call you again. I’m not going to check if she’s there. If for some reason you have a question for me, I’ll answer.Take whatever you want from this mess. I hope you don’t believe her lies anymore. And if you ever go after a married woman, pray that they have the self control that I do.

Apparently Gregg Satula feels that going to a man’s house with a gun (and invoking his official capacity as a SWAT Sergeant) and threatening a man’s life is self control. I tend to disagree.

Town of Brookfield WI Police Department sits just to the East of Waukesha and shares a jurisdictional border. TOB is 99.999% white and houses the upper middle class (along with hundreds of 1 million plus dollar homes) in suburban Milwaukee. TOB includes a 1/2  mile section of Moreland Boulevard  just west of the eastbound I-94 on ramp to the Brew City. It’s a great place for all cops near and far to tax “out of town-ers.” I refer to where my friend was stopped as “The Gauntlet, where black people come to learn about racial profiling.”

In February around quarter to 5, a personal friend of mine we’ll call J got off the bus on his way to work a 12 hour shift as an assistant manager at a local restaurant. It was still broad daylight and he was walking the half block from the bus stop when he was stopped by Field Training officer Steven G. Thompson and his apparent trainee (hired in Feb. of 14) Antonio Dominguez. Thompson demanded ID which was given under duress by my friend (and fellow cop-watcher) while he adamantly asserted that his rights were being violated. Thompson proceeded to unconstitutionally pat J down for weapons (drugs.) Nothing was located but of course Thompson had to make it look good on paper.

He fabricated an incident report which included the “you’re violating my rights” quote but stated he was given consent for both searches. He also reported that the area has a lot of vehicle break ins. The corner in question is overrun with cops from Town of Brookfield, Waukesha PD, and the Wisconsin State Patrol Milwaukee Outpost which is located 200 yards from the field interrogation. I asked police chief Chris Perket to provide some area crime stats to back  up the high crime area claim 5 days ago. He didn’t.

Thompson decided to toss one more lie on the official (probably sworn) incident report. He claimed J has prior convictions for burglary and trespass. This is false. You’d think he’d at least lie about stuff that couldn’t be dis-proven but perhaps his lies have gotten him through the past decade with such little resistance he no longer considers them.

Town of Brookfield Police Chief Chris Perket declined multiple requests for comment on these allegations.

How Would You Handle the Armed Men in Nevada?

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Most of the regular readers to this site are probably aware to Cliven Bundy and the situation his family is currently facing in Nevada. For those unaware read this submission to CopBlock.org posted earlier today or this piece written by Christoper Cantwell titled, “5 Things the Bundy Ranch Teaches Us.” If that doesn’t work, use Google to get caught up on the this insane situation.

My blog post today is NOT a background story to help you understand the standoff. My post here won’t be a call on action (though I believe as many people who can, should get to the Bundy’s Ranch) or a solution to the problem, I believe even if I had those, it’s not my place. How this interaction between government agents and the Bundy’s ends, is up to them.

What I want to do, is ask you a simple question. As the world watches another perfect government storm unfold, with all the similarities of Ruby Ridge and Waco, have you ever thought about what you would do of (but more like, when) the government pushes you to your breaking point? In the words of William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson in Braveheart), “Will you stand up and fight? Or will you run?”

Now I can already predict the responses from my friends, the CB trolls and most any statists. Yet, I urge you to really think about this. Sadly we live in a world where government agents regularly (whether as a mailman, censuses worker or full on swat team) come to your door (most the time under the pretense of helping you) and end up either taking everything you have and if you don’t give it to them, they’ll back you into a corner. Afterwards, they’ll blame you for fighting your way out and justify the overwhelming slaughter that will follow. Regardless of the outcome you should seriously consider your options if the man decides to take certain actions toward you. Don’t leave yourself with only two options, fight or run, when men with American flag patches and AR-15′s show up at your door. Being caught off guard and without a plan of action is a recipe for certain slaughter.

I wish the Bundy family the best. I hope the men in costumes who go out there to enforce these BS laws quit their jobs or prepare to risk their life for a paycheck. I’m sure the Bundy’s have more to fight for than just (worthless paper) money.
