ferguson police

Three members of the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Chairman Bob Goodlatte on Thursday asking him to hold hearings on a series of issues related to local law enforcement in the wake of the controversial police response to protests in Ferguson, Missouri this week. In their letter, Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan), Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Virginia), and Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee) said the situation in Ferguson raised the question of whether “local law enforcement is out of control.”
“For five days the citizens of Ferguson have protested the killing of an unarmed teenager by local police. Last night, law enforcement broke up the protest with brutal force: confronting demonstrators in riot gear and armored vehicles, arresting journalists, and firing tear gas and rubber bullets into the crowds,” the congressmen wrote. “These incidents raise concerns that local law enforcement is out of control and, instead of protecting the safety and civil liberties of the residents of Ferguson, is employing tactics that violate the rights of citizens and hinder the ability of the press to report on their actions.”

Police State Monday: Comprehensive Ferguson Timeline, Mentally-Ill Woman Shot By Police While Holding Cordless Drill, LAPD Beat Another Man To Death, And MUCH MORE is a post from Cop Block - Badges Don't Grant Extra Rights

Police Intimidation

Monday, August 18th, 2014

This post was shared anonymously via CopBlock.org’s submit page.

Date of Interaction: January 12, 2005
Police Employees Involved: Hialeah Police Department
Police Employee Contact Information: Hialeah Police Department 305-887-1208

I want to share my story of police injustice. On January 12, 2005 Hialeah, FL PD was called to the apartment complex I was living in at the time because my neighbor was choking. The officer was overheard making jokes about the choking victim, so I asked him to not do that. He started screaming at me, so I simply asked for his name and badge number.

He instantly arrested me and said out loud, so everyone would think I threatened him, “What did you say, you’re going to kick my ass?” “I didn’t say that,” I told everyone. Then he whispered in my ear, “If you put a fucking complaint against me, they’re going to find your body in a canal.” No one heard this, just me.

This all happened on my son’s 1st birthday, as my son and my wife watched from the second floor. My wife was visibly very upset, and the female officer that was with him screamed at her, “Shut up and go inside, or I’m going to arrest you too and call child services so they can take your child away.” The fire rescue and neighbors were all around, and everyone just stood and watched.

I was charged with obstruction of a police officer, all because I asked him for his name and badge number. Charges were dropped in court because the officer didn’t show up, but I never said anything because I was afraid I would be targeted. This was almost 10 years ago.

A video tape shows the officers, Detective Arlen Castillo and then Officer Ken Fraser, open the gate without calling into the house. Fraser actually pets the family’s pit bull on the way in. Then the German shepherd comes out barking at Castillo and Castillo shoots the dog.

Tyler Harney was stopped by police on August 3rd, 2013. As the officers were throwing Harney up against the car, Harney began convulsing uncontrollably as a result of a seizure disorder, according to the lawsuit.

“An officer put his knee forcefully against plaintiff’s back and neck. One officer pulled and twisted back on plaintiff’s right arm, and continued to do so, saying, ‘stop, or I’m going to break your arm,’ or words to that effect. The officer then did in fact severely break plaintiff’s arm.”

New Law Would Make Complaints Against Police “Proven False” A Felony

New Kansas law would make complaints against police "proven false" a felony

The Kansas House Standing Committee on Corrections and Juvenile Justice has introduced a bill that will require private citizens who file complaints against police officers to sign an affidavit, acknowledging that if their allegations are proven false, they can be charged with perjury, which is a felony charge.

Furthermore, this bill prohibits a Kansas law enforcement agency from opening an investigation into a complaint if another law enforcement agency has already investigated the complaint and found in favor of the officer.

In other words, this bill would allow police departments to arrest the people who file complaints against police officers. In Wichita, Kansas, complaints are almost always dismissed, by the Wichita Police Department, so, according to this bill and its vague wording, the WPD, could now go arrest the people who file complaints against their officers.

Pure Hell

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

This post was shared via CopBlock.org’s submit page.

Date of Interaction: November 11, 2011
Police Employees Involved: M Catalano Badge # 15960
Police Employee Contact: Broward Sheriff Department, Pompano Beach, FL

It started with my day off and an early morning W-mart trip (8:00 AM). I’m not really quite sure why I was targeted by this BSO Officer M. Catalino, but I was. I was thinking this cop was crazy, maybe I cut him off when I turned, but if I did, he was in my blind spot. I saw the lights come on on his cruiser and if I had stopped on the dime, he would have totaled my car. I was thinking he just wanted to get past, but no, less than a mile away from my apartment he made me pull over on Atlantic Blvd in Pompano Beach. I was trying to pull over to the right on the three lane highway; I spotted the bus stop and decided that would be the safest place. I had to watch him and watch the traffic, which made my eyes go off the road.

When I got out to talk to him, he asked me if I was taking something and I told him, “No, I only take my prescriptions as prescribed, which are xanax in the afternoon and ambien before bed, because I am an insomniac (I’ve been on these prescriptions for five years).” He stated in the report in his report that I said I had just taken them (another lie), but there’s no way I could have driven a car if I had just taken them; I would have been passed out at home. I do not take them in the morning at all. I am a fifty-seven year old woman with five children, working two-three jobs to support them, and I’ve never in trouble my whole life, but things turned ugly when I questioned his ability to judge people so quickly for a DUI. To prove my innocence (totally honest with him), he had me take a roadside test. Before I did it though, I tried to take pictures of my vehicle; he grabbed my phone out of my hands and said he had already taken them. The last time I saw the phone was the next morning at 3:00 AM.

I attempted to take the field test to prove my innocence, with flip flops and no shade on an uneven surface, which he lied on his report about by saying I was taking the test on a flat surface in the shade; the conditions made it difficult to walk straight. He arrested me, put handcuffs on, and put me in back of his car.

I was devastated. I could not believe what was happening. I was quiet the whole way there. Also just an FYI, I slipped right out of my handcuffs while in the back of the cruiser; if this were a serious criminal, they could have hurt the cop. He also didn’t put my seatbelt on, and NO Miranda rights were given. I slipped the cuffs back on just before we arrived downtown. He brought me into a room with another BSO to take three breathalyzer tests which all read .000. I did the field sobriety test once again and the arresting cop just walked away, shaking his head. It is guilty until proven innocent, because I did well once I got my footing but was arrested anyway and given a urine test. I am bowlegged and pigeon toed, so that didn’t help in the tests either. In his report, he said I was swerving up and down on curbs on both sides of the road. This would have been impossible on this highway, with all the cars on the road, and I was in the far left lane lane and less then a 1/2 mile from the light when he stopped me. Also said my eyes were glassy; yes, they were, because I wear contacts. He also said my voice was sluggish; yes, my dentures are too big for my mouth, plus I am 60 percent deaf (since birth) which has affected my speech.

Regardless of these facts, as he never asked, I was booked, strip searched, fingerprinted, and brought to a cell. When I got there, they asked me to come up by the desk to ask me questions, like where I live, my DOB and my SS#, which everyone could hear and get my information. He then handed me a paper on how to use the phone. I walked back to my cell and tried to remember my sister’s number; once I remembered, I walked out of the cell to make a call and the guy at the desk yelled at me to get back in the cell – so no phone call for me!

In walked another cop who handcuffed me to another inmate (a crackhead) and put us in the back of a van. I was crying almost the whole time and wondered where we were going. The cop locked us in this small cage in a van with no A/C; it was in the 90′s at that time, so I was having a panic attack. This cop drove like a mad man. Every turn he made was so sharp that we were falling all over the place, and he thought it was a big joke. I hit my head and my arms and was praying I was not going to die. When we finally arrived (Pompano Beach), he had us get out and we were put in another locked room with no windows, and given a different colored outfit. Finally, I found someone I could talk with and just broke down; it was the kind nurse that was working there . I explained to her what happened to me and she finally got my sister on the phone to get me bailed out. Once again, I was put in the same van (two hours later), with the same maniac cop driving! I went back to where I was in Ft. Lauderdale and up to the 2nd floor. I was told to pick a cell. The first one I went into, the toilet was full of poop. The second one I checked, the toilet was full of urine, but it was too late, he shut the door on me. The toilet would not flush and was not working.

Finally, around 12:00 AM, they moved me in with someone else and I had to sit on a mattress on the floor. I asked the guard when I would get out since my sister had brought my bail money, and she said it was too late to get out. Again I was devastated, and just sat on the floor defeated. Around 2:00 or 3:00 AM or so, the guard came in and said I’d been bailed out. She walked me over to get my belongings and told me I could leave. I left, but had no idea where I was. I saw a cop car and asked him; he said you should have asked the guy at the desk. Reluctantly, I went back in and the desk cop said, “What do you want?” I walked up to him because of my hearing problem and he yelled at me and told me to get back behind the metal detector. I said, “Can you call me a taxi?” He said, “No, they are all around the beach road,” so I left. I still had no idea where this beach road was, so I called my sister and she gave me a taxi number. I called them and waited, but was afraid the cops would pick me up for loitering, so I slowly walked down the street and waved one down.

When I finally got home, I read the tickets I was given and could not believe it – he gave me three tickets for the whole deal that he made up because I questioned his ability. It was seventeen hours of pure hell, with no phone, no water, and no food! It has cost me almost 5K so far, all the money I had. I plead no contest to a DUI I never did because I am scared to go back to Florida period. Now I have no job, no place to live, and no unemployment left; it has left me with more anxiety issues, more depression and now PTSD.

I feel that things just were not handled properly at all. The two pictures he showed me of my car could not have been the way I left it, with the door wide open and up on the walkway, but then again, I was focused on him, not my driving. Since he grabbed my phone away, I can’t prove what he said I did. Honestly, I think he left the door open and drove it up closer to the walkway so he could falsely arrest me. I am talking to a lawyer about this but also want to report what happened to the department of internal affairs. After talking with my lawyer, he informed me I don’t have any rights since I didn’t pass a drug test. The drug tests showed my prescriptions; he said, “Well, that doesn’t mean you didn’t abuse them.” Why even hire a lawyer?

I wrote to them about investigating my complaint. This is what I received:

No misconduct was identified, and the matter is closed in this office.

Thank you.
Investigative Aide II

Division of Internal Affairs
Broward Sheriff’s Office
954-321-1105
954-321-1100

I know now that I didn’t legally have to take the field sobriety test and legally didn’t have said anything, but how do you know this until you get in trouble? I was honest with that cop and he used it all against me. Florida is notorious for DUI’s and I am sure half of them are probably made up. Way to get paid!

Legally, Police Do Not Have to Protect You – Yet, You Go to Jail For Not Assisting Them

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

Greg Young shared this post via CopBlock.org’s submit page.

Legally, Police Do Not Have to Protect You – Yet, You Go to Jail For Not Assisting Them
By: Greg Young, Melbourne, Florida

Just a little while ago, there was a video going around that showed an officer being beaten by a citizen in a fight. The police chief said he was disappointed and surprised that people stood by and let it happen. On the other hand, the video of the guy (who was severely injured) that stopped a knife-wielding mass murderer on the NYC subway while the cops stood behind a closed door and watched also went viral. The NYPD said to remember that the Supreme Court ruled in 1980 and reaffirmed since then that police do not have a constitutional responsibility to protect a citizen from harm.

Police have no legal duty to respond and prevent crime or protect the victim. There have been over ten various supreme and state court cases and the individual has never won. Notably, the Supreme Court STATED about the responsibility of police for the security of your family and loved ones, “You, and only you, are responsible for your security and the security of your family and loved ones.” That was the essence of a U.S. Supreme Court decision in the early 1980′s when they ruled that the police do not have a duty to protect you as an individual, but to protect society as a whole.” [Reference]

That got me to thinking about the legal reasoning behind a citizen not helping when asked by a cop.

It seems that here in Florida it is a crime not to assist with an arrest or the capture of an escaped prisoner. That’s right, you can go to jail for not jumping into the fray if a law officer asks you for help!
