The LEO thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Hit by car after being left at dump by police, Northern California woman wins huge settlement

I'm happy for the settlement, but what a sad article. No word on whether the asshole cops have been disciplined or fired. 1312.

Pigs being lying pigs, Miami-Dade Police at a Sept 'Canes football game:

‘It just ruined my career': Nurse's arrest at UM game caught on video raises questions

It also sucks that in FL charges without any conviction lead to:
... “Financially, it's killed me and then professionally, it's just ruined my career,” Kotnik said.

Kotnik, who makes his living as a nurse, shared a letter from the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, letting him know he is disqualified from working with a health care provider licensed by the agency.

The agency didn’t provide any information about the status of the case or the letter, just explaining its staff reviews background checks for employment in health care facilities regulated by the agency in accordance to Florida law....
Randy Kotnik was supposed to be tried for the one remaining misdemeanor charge in January, but there's no update on this S FL NBC site. Maybe prosecutors dropped that bogus charge, too. Go 'Canes.

Family of Black girls handcuffed by Colorado police, held at gunpoint reach $1.9 million settlement

I have no opinion on the appropriate size of these settlements, but good for them.
... An investigation by prosecutors found no evidence the officers committed any crimes, in part because they found they were following their training for conducting a high-risk stop of what they suspected was a stolen vehicle. However, they said the incident was “unacceptable and preventable” and urged police to review their policies to ensure nothing like it happens again.

One of the officers who stopped the car, Darian Dasko, was suspended for 160 hours. He and the other officer, Madisen Moen, still work for the department....

This settlement also marks the latest Aurora has been forced to pay out over police misconduct. The city settled for $15 million in 2021 with the parents of Elijah McClain. The 23-year-old Black man was killed in 2019 after he was stopped as he walked down the street, placed in a neck hold and injected with a sedative. One police officer also was convicted in his death and two others were acquitted. Two paramedics were also convicted.

A state civil rights investigation — launched amid outrage over McClain’s death and released after Gilliam’s lawsuit was filed — found a deeply engrained culture of racially biased policing in the department.
If Aurora is still able to get insurance the premiums must be sky high.
... Amid shouting and crying, police soon realized their mistake. While the department’s system notified them that Gilliam’s Dodge with Colorado license plates was stolen, the vehicle that was actually stolen was a motorcycle with the same license plate number in Montana....
:wtf:

"North County Coastal", including all the beach towns from La Jolla up, isn't a particular hotbed of lowriders. We have them, but their native habitat is mostly south and a bit inland. The Chula Vista and National City police would seem to be a better choice. Escondido has a regular Friday night cruise during the late spring and summer and a bunch of lowriders show up there.

I'm guessing "bridging the gap" has little to do with it.

:D Oceanside can loan/rent the car out when those other towns have lowrider emergencies.

Notice the article doesn't say whether the owner was convicted. Leaving aside my opposition to the entire drug war, I'm okay with asset seizures IF they are tied to a directly relevant conviction. Otherwise, it's just official theft.

IMNVHO it's always just official theft unless it's part of collection of a legal judgement. If a guy owes $100,000 and can't/won't pay, sure - take his car and his dog. But otherwise, it shouldn't be taken.

Henderson, NV:

The bad cop and cops are one thing, 1312, but the PD coverup, the Henderson stonewalling, the 4 year delay for justice and the lack of any punishment for the bad cops is unacceptable. This is why we have so many costly pigs out there.

Opinion
DeSantis sends state troopers to halt Florida spring break crime. What about Trump's Mar-a-Lago?

Frank Cerabino, Palm Beach Post

... Mar-a-Lago is the crime-committing, havoc-causing capital of Florida. If you’re going to take a stand against wanton lawlessness in Florida – and put down a meaningful endorsement for the rule of law – there’s no better place to start than Insurrection Central, headquarters for the malcontents looking to start a new civil war....

So yes, spring break has led to some bad behavior. But it helps to keep things in context.

Spring break in Florida is far less harmful to the average Floridian than the annual spring session of the Florida Legislature.

Do you think I’m fooling? Here’s a taste: This session, state lawmakers OK'd allowing lenders to charge up to 36% interest on consumer loans. That’s institutional thievery on a grand scale, where those who “pay the price” are not criminals. DeSantis vetoed it.

Furthermore, if teenagers and young adults are so dangerous, why are Florida lawmakers always trying to lower the age of buying assault rifles to 18?
:---P
If you look at comparative harm, spring breakers aren’t a top-tier law-and-order menace in Florida. They certainly don’t measure up to the security threats coming from former President Donald Trump and his oceanfront Palm Beach lair.

Your average Mar-a-Lago bathroom is a much more consequential crime scene than any beach bar’s wet-T-shirt contest. You’re not going to find misplaced national secrets at the Elbo Room Beach Bar in Fort Lauderdale.

And the visitors to Mar-a-Lago pose a much bigger threat to all of us than some fraternity bro from an out-of-state university.

For example, last weekend, Trump got pointers on how to sharpen his dictator skills from a seasoned pro, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban....
:puke-left: :obscene-birdiered:
It’s too bad that the DeSantis strike force wasn’t deployed outside Mar-a-Lago to remind Trump that we have three branches of government, not a “boss” who dictates on every issue.

And that just like with misbehaving spring breakers, there’s a point where enough is enough.
:clap: Excellent column. FU, Fascist DerSantis and TRE45QN!!

Deplorable Sheriff Bailey,

There's nothing "rogue" about it when the "Goon Squad" was created, tolerated, defended, and covered up by you and your equally detestable "leadership" team. All were just doing what the Boss Man (you) said. You have brought incalculable shame upon your department, Rankin County and LEOs everywhere.

You should have resigned long ago, just as decent, accountable and honorable leaders have done throughout history. Do you have any of these attributes? Do it now and take your entire vile team with you. If not, I wish upon you exactly what happened to Michael Corey Jenkins and Eddie Terrell Parker. For the record, this is a hope, NOT a threat. I know what crybabies some cops are.

Also, your online complaint form is USELESS, another example of your FAILED tenure. It's unwieldy, time-consuming, overly complex and nitpicky. I went through it once, but it timed out due to all the quirks. Fortunately, I had saved all my text and sped through a second time only to get this message:

"I'm sorry, but there was an error detected in your response.
"We are sorry, but your submission failed our content check. Please adjust the contents of your submission to use more precise language. If you continue to have an issue, please contact us at 877-634-3468, option 2."

"content check" = Some real 1984 BS.

Ironically, the note is imprecise as to exactly what content needs adjustment, which just makes RCSD look stupid.

I'm using this snail mail, but no doubt countless others gave up out of frustration. Oh wait, that's the point with a Sheriff as irresponsible as you are, isn't it? Gotta keep those complaint numbers artificially low, right?

Disdainfully yours,
(Vrede too)
