The thought of this no-necked, beady-eyed troglodyte sitting at home unemployed in his boxers and wife-beater eating a Swanson single-serve chicken pot pie will help me sleep a little easier:

Now if we can just deal with the thousands of his other brethren....

After Night Of Drinking, Off-Duty Cop Allegedly Shoots Random Motorist 6 Times

An off-duty cop who started his day at a firing range allegedly capped off his night by pulling up next to a car at a stop light in the Westchester town of Pelham and firing 13 rounds at the vehicle, nearly killing a passenger.

Investigators believe that 27-year-old Brendan Cronin, of Yonkers, began firing his 9mm Glock without provocation shortly before midnight on Tuesday. "As of right now it seems to be completely random,” Pelham police chief Joseph Chief Benefico told reporters yesterday. “We have nothing to link either party to each other — no road rage, nothing right now."

The unidentified 47-year-old victim, whom the Post identifies as Joe “The Truck” Felice, was sitting in the passenger side of the vehicle when he heard popping sounds and realized he had been shot. He then slumped down in the seat but still caught five more bullets. Fortunately, by slumping down he dodged a bullet that pierced the headrest.

One local resident who heard the shots reported seeing a bald motorist drive away from the shooting with his car's hazard lights on. Police soon stopped Cronin, who still had his hazards blinking. According to police, Cronin pointed his gun at officers after he was stopped but finally dropped the weapon after a tense standoff. He refused to take a breathalyzer test at the scene, and officials say he's said little since his arrest. But one source tells the Post that Cronin did not even remember firing his weapon.

Felice is in stable condition recovering from gunshot wounds to his lungs, arms and torso. The incident is being investigated by the town of Pelham police and the NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau. Cronin, who is a six year veteran of the NYPD assigned to the 46th Precinct in the Bronx, was suspended yesterday.

At his arraignment in Pelham last night, court officials prohibited the press from entering the courtroom. The Journal News reports:

Although arraignments are supposed to be open to the public, Pelham court officials appeared to have treated Cronin differently. A court clerk refused to allow a reporter from The Journal News into the courtroom, saying only Cronin's relatives were permitted inside. The two judges who handle arraignments in Pelham did not return messages seeking comment.
David Bookstaver, a spokesman for the state Office of Court Administration, said court personnel were out of line. "Arraignments are public proceedings and not conducted simply for family members," he said.

Sources tell the Post "the trouble all began when Cronin downed numerous drinks with some other cops at the end of a day that included a visit to the NYPD firing range in The Bronx."

A felonious cop receiving special treatment... Shocking.

Happy Law Enforcement Incompetence Monday! This one has all the usual trappings you come to expect from living in our fine police state: injuries to the innocent, false arrest, evidence suppression, etc. Ya know, standard fare.

Of course the deputy is seeking a permanent duty disability claim for an accident he caused and was actually treated and released with a clean bill of health following the accident. Meanwhile the poor girl has more hardware in her spine and neck than a Terminator.

Cops shoot 377 rounds at two unarmed men. Manage to hit two of their own before killing the suspects.

A hodge-podge of outrage and incredulity today. Some of it geared at cops and some at families of robbers killed during a home invasion, and one bonus bit at the end.

Cops Storm Brooklyn Home Looking For Dead Person, Three Times

BROOKLYN, NY–James E. Jordan, 48, died of complications from diabetes back in 2006. The NYPD apparently didn’t get the memo, and have been knocking on his door for the past eight years searching for him for an unidentified offense. Jordan’s widow, Karen Fennell, has filed a federal lawsuit over the repeated disturbances.

Police have come to her home as recently as last Easter, storming into her apartment with no warrant to arrest the dead man. In her suit, Fennell states that she was so frustrated with the situation that she did the only thing she could think of to deter the police from entering her home.
She posted her husband’s death certificate to her door.

Even that wasn’t enough to stop the raids. Her lawyer, Ugochukwu Uzoh, had advised Fennell to not leave the death certificate on the door due to its personal information, but Fennell felt she had no choice. The NYPD has been to her apartment at least four times this year alone. “Every time they do a sweep they come here,” Fennel, 56, told the NY Daily News. “It’s very upsetting.”
Since they haven’t been able to arrest her husband during their illegal searches, the cops have set their sights on Jordan’s son, James Jr. Last July, cops found a pocket knife on James Jr., and arrested him and his friend, Anthony Solis. The criminal charges were later dismissed.

Unsatisfied with minimum extortion, the police decided to put pressure on James Jr. to extract information that would help them arrest others. “While at the precinct, James was interrogated by defendant officers, who kept asking James to provide them with information concerning drugs and guns in his neighborhood and concerning certain individuals who James doesn’t even know,” the suit states. Emotionally distraught, Fennel, Jordan Jr. and Solis are seeking undisclosed monetary reparations from the NYPD.

Not sure if this is a win or not, as the guy has probably just painted a big bullseye on his car, but the ballsiness of it is worth a post

New Hampshire Court Says "COPSLIE" License Plate is Free Speech
post #643 of 6071
On a sweltering summer morning in the California desert, deputies looking for methamphetamines and bearing automatic weapons barged into the home of Eugene Mallory, an 80-year-old retired engineer living a quiet life in the small community of Littlerock. Moments later, Mallory lay in his bed bleeding to death from six bullets fired from an MP5 9mm submachine gun. The murky circumstances that led to the shooting are now the subject of a federal lawsuit. The officers found no meth on the property.

The raid took place on June 27, 2013, after deputies received an anonymous tip alleging meth production on Mallory's property. Patrick Hobbs, a detective with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LACSD) and a self-described narcotics expert, came by to investigate and later said that "he smelled the strong odor of chemicals" downwind of the house.

As deputies announced their presence that fateful morning, Tonya Pate, Mallory's wife, emerged from the trailer where she'd been sleeping to escape the heat. Mallory's stepson Adrian Lamos and a couple of his friends emerged from another trailer and surrendered-as did a handyman tinkering with a car on the property. But Mallory remained asleep in the house.

The deputies approached the house, and what happened next is disputed. Hobbs and his team say they announced their presence. Upon entering, they claim, they encountered Mallory in the hall wielding a gun and stumbling forward, which led them to open fire. So then why did investigators later find Eugene Mallory's corpse in his bed with his .22 caliber pistol on his night table? Deputies told the coroner at the scene that paramedics had moved Mallory on to the bed and attempted to revive him. Pate disputes that account, saying that Mallory would never point a gun at an officer and that it was more likely that her elderly husband remained asleep and unaware of what was happening.

The deputies later changed their story. Massive bloodstains on Mallory's mattress indicated to investigators that he'd most likely been in bed at the time of the shooting. Deputies revised their account and said that Mallory had sat up in bed and pointed his gun at them. An audio recording of the incident revealed another discrepancy in the original narrative: Sgt. John Bones told investigators that he warned Mallory to "drop the gun" prior to the shooting, but the recording revealed that his command occurred immediately after the shooting. (It was Bones' submachine gun that killed Mallory.)

The officers did discover two marijuana plants on the property belonging to Lamos, who claimed he had a medical marijuana prescription. LACSD touted the marijuana discovery as evidence of a successful drug bust. "There was a drug operation that was certainly going on in this house," LACSD spokesperson Steve Whitmore told local news station KTLA.

"How is that a justification for coming in and killing a man?" says Pate, who filed a wrongful death lawsuit in U.S. District Court alleging Fourth and 14th Amendment violations. "To justify that through marijuana just makes it even more wrong."

LACSD officials declined to talk with Reason TV for this story, citing the pending lawsuit.

Pate, who's still awaiting an initial hearing in the case, knows that no amount of money or punishment will undo her husband's violent death at the hands of cops looking for drugs that weren't there. "Every day, he'd get to tell you a joke, tell you something, tell you you're beautiful, and now he's gone," she says. "I just want him back."

TL:DR - Cops raid a suspected meth lab, find no meth, kill 80 year old, lie about how it happened.

Man Dies After Being Tazed by Deputies and then Beaten with Flashlights

Hopefully, with all the witnesses and video footage, none of these guys will still have jobs because they will be serving sentences for murder.
