Defense lawyer for Phoenix officer charged with murder attacks key witness, his partner


PHOENIX — A jury on Tuesday began deliberating the fate of a Phoenix police officer charged with fatally shooting an unarmed suspect and his dog.
The deliberations came after the defense attorney for now-fired officer Richard Chrisman said the defendant’s partner made up a story that led to the charges, and the prosecutor said the partner stood up and told the truth after seeing a crime.


Attorney Craig Mehrens told jurors that officer Sergio Virgillo’s testimony was designed to protect him from allegations he left his partner alone in a dangerous situation because he was himself scared. His client acted in self-defense, he said.
“I think there’s good reason to believe that what you heard from officer Virgillo is not what happened,” Mehrens said. “And what you heard from Mr. Chrisman is what he was trained to do.”
Prosecutor Juan Martinez said the defense was trying to work around the facts to clear Chrisman.
“It is a nonsensical story that they have brought forth for you to consider,” he told jurors, who were scheduled to resume deliberations Wednesday morning.
Chrisman faces second-degree murder, aggravated assault and animal cruelty charges for the fatal October 2010 shootings of 29-year-old Danny Rodriguez and his dog. He has pleaded not guilty.
The former officer acknowledged under questioning last week that he was the aggressor in the early part of the confrontation but that he was just doing his job.


Chrisman and Virgillo were called to the south Phoenix trailer park by Rodriguez’s mother, who told them her son was violent and had punched a hole in a wall.
Chrisman and Virgillo confronted Rodriguez at the door to the trailer, and Chrisman forced his way inside. Rodriguez asked to see a warrant, and prosecutors say Chrisman then put his pistol against Rodriguez’s head and told him he didn’t need one.
Mehrens says that didn’t happen, but Martinez told jurors Tuesday that DNA on the officer’s pistol and a bruise on the dead man’s left temple shows it happened the way Virgillo testified.
The two officers then had difficulty controlling Rodriguez, and both fired their stun guns with little effect. Chrisman also used pepper spray on Rodriguez then shot his dog, who prosecutors say was not threatening the officers.
Virgillo said Rodriguez then got his bicycle and tried to leave the tiny trailer home, but Chrisman would not allow it and a tussle began.
Chrisman’s lawyer said Virgillo fled the trailer home because he was scared and couldn’t see the events that followed.
Chrisman testified that Rodriguez lifted up the bike and he thought he was going to use it to “smash my brains in,” so he fired twice, hitting Rodriguez in the chest.
Martinez told jurors there was no sign the bicycle had been hit with gunshot residue, and that they should believe Virgillo’s version — that he saw what happened and Rodriguez’s hands were up when he was shot. Mehrens said no tests were done on the bike and jurors can’t speculate.
Mehrens told jurors there’s just no reason a nine-year veteran officer who had never fired his gun in the line of duty would just snap one day and kill someone for no reason.

A second-degree murder conviction carries a 15- to 22-year prison sentence, but mitigating factors could reduce it to 10 years. Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, the charge for allegedly putting the gun to Rodriguez’s head, carries a 5- to 15- year sentence. The misdemeanor animal cruelty charge carries no jail time.

Video Released in New Orleans Cop Slaying of UnarmedMan




Wendell Allen was slain during a botched drug raid at his home. 
New Orleans law enforcement authorities have released a video that captured the shooting of an unarmed black man by police as they entered his home last year during a botched drug raid.



Former New Orleans police officer Joshua Colclough was sentenced to four years in prison last month in the shooting death of Wendell Allen in March 2012, which ignited racial tensions and calls for justice.
New Orleans District Attorney Leon Cannizarro says at least five Orleans and Jefferson Parish lawmen were involved in the raid of Wendell Allen's Prentiss Street home. One was wearing a pin camera that captured images of what happened that evening.
The video is shaky and the date on the video is wrong, but it's a record of the March 7, 2012 shooting of Allen ...


"The officers obtained a search warrant to search the premises where Wendell Allen and two others were located," he said.
The shaky camera shows the stairs of the home, but Allen is not visible. NOPD Officer Josh Colclough was on the stairs. The DA explains what happened next.
"Wendell Allen appears from behind the partition. He appears at the top of the stairwell. Officer Colclough takes his gun and fires one shot striking Mr. Allen in the chest."
The sound of the shot on the tape is clear. "That bullet causes death," the DA tells us.

Fairfax County cops execute another unarmed man


The Fairfax County Police shot an killed an unarmed man who was alone in his home. The police caused the situation, they escalated the situation and they handled it poorly and are expected to take several weeks to develop their justification story.
Police said they were responding….in force with a tank, a helecopter, a SWAT team, K-p units, and no less than 23 cops to a “Domestic dispute” but Geer was alone in the house. The victim of this police shooting this time was John Geer, age 46, a kitchen installer with no history of violence had to end in death.  He left behind two teenage daughters.
According to Geer’s father,  Geer had been throwing his estranged wife’s belongings, she is 24 years old, into the front yard because she was leaving him, so she called the cops who marked the call as a domestic dispute. She was asked if there were guns in the house and she said there was. The weapons were under lock and key
There's a Maura Harrington listed at the same address where the killing took place.
Neighbors recalled him as even-keeled, outgoing and helpful. A search of police records in Fairfax County showed that Geer was found guilty of drunken driving in 2010 but no convictions for violent crimes or more serious offenses. A neighbor said he talked to Geer in the minutes before the police encounter. He said that Geer didn’t say anything suicidal but he was deeply shaken about the impending breakup.
For forty minutes the cops demanded that Geer, who stood at his front door, for forty minutes "They just continued to tell him: come out, come out, come out," said one witness.
Geer had not showed the cops any sort of weapon nor had he advanced toward them. He made no mention of harming himself or others. Geer’s hands were up in the air, seconds before he was gunned down because they were on top of the storm door. He as shot in the chest while slowly lowering his hands. He had no weapon in his possession and there was no weapon within his reach.
Shot in the chest, Greer pushed his way back into the house and bled to death. The heros from the SWAT team entered the house by way of tank one hour later and found Geer dead.


Same old Culture of Contempt, different name.

                  
   How do we solve the police corruption problem in Fairfax County? 
   Easy.
   We bring in fresh blood. We hire someone who will adjust the attitude of arrogance and entitlement that permeates the department, an outsider who will change the culture of contempt and brutality that is the Fairfax County police.
   With an honest police chief, meaning someone who wasn’t bred in the Fairfax County Police department, we won’t need to discuss a citizen oversight panel to investigate entrapment and murders by the cops-from –another-county on the local citizenry.
   With an ethical man or woman at the top of the Neanderthal chain, the cops reckless spending could be roped in and the several thousand yearly misconduct complaints against the police would actually be investigated and the results of those investigations would be made public, since, after all, the public pays for them.
   And no, the Fairfax County Police ARE NOT investigating complaints against them.      Snap out of it.  This isn’t a fairy tale. This is a police force out of control and to prove that, not one incident report on the killing of eight unarmed citizens in the past decade has been released to the public in all probability because they were never investigated in the first place. 
   Anyway, back to an honest police chief.  The board of supervisors would fire an honest chief who tried to drag the Fairfax County police force into the light of day. They’d fire him and they would do it within a year.  And they would do that because it’s really a matter of values which is why Sharon Bulova and her cronies will never bring in an outside person to manage the police.  What the board wants is someone who has no values, someone who won’t question the practice of sweeping complaints about the cops under the carpet. And most importently they want someone who will make damn sure the right political contributions arrive into the right hands.
   To prove the point, instead of hiring an outsider who will change things, Bulova and her friends promoted whatever the hell is name is as chief of police….it doesn’t matter what his name because he doesn’t matter. He won’t rock the boat. He won’t change anything. That’s what matters to those people. To prove the point, when asked what his plans for the department are, Chief whats-it responded that he intended to hire more cops under the guise of diversity. We don’t need more cops, of any color or creed. More cops will just add to the problem. Fix the cops we have and then hire new ones.
  It doesn’t matter, really. None of this matters because it will never change.  This guy, chief what’s his face, will put in his time and retire with a pension that would make him a millionaire in most 3rd world countries.  And when he goes, the next irrelevant person chosen from the inside the department will take his place and nothing will change and Fairfax County, a 21st century place, will go on with its 19th century police force.
   And no, correcting the corrupt and often criminal Fairfax County Police Department won’t be solved by police oversight because oversight can’t fix the core of the problem within the Fairfax County Police Department which is contempt by the cops for the citizens who pay them (and pay them much too much, way above the national average)
   Oversight in Fairfax County will solve nothing except to give a bunch of angry and bored retired guys something to do while adding even more bureaucracy to a county government already saturated in red tape, overhead and redundancy.
    Want an example of costly overhead and redundant positions? Former police chief Rhorer’s six figure salaried job as “extra special police chief” or Head Dwarf in charge or whatever the hell he is this month, can’t be justified any more than the board of supervisors can explain the 20,000 foot, multimillion dollar addition to the McLean police palace or the several hundred unused cars the police department purchased and doesn’t use or the small fortune of public money the cops are secretly pouring into drones.
    Aside from not doing anything to change the cop’s culture of contempt the claim that a  citizen’s review board would  protect the public from continued unlawful actions by the Fairfax County Police is unfounded . The fact is that is no evidence can be found anywhere in the United States to justify that claim. Citizen’s review boards do not curtail violence and other felonious activities by the police upon the citizenry because virtually every citizen’s review board in the nation is a dismal failure. Most are powerless to enforce their will and are manipulated into subservience by local politicians, people like Bulova and Hyland and that’s exactly what will happen in Fairfax County if we get oversight.  
     It’s also not true that a citizen’s review board would protect the police department from unjustified criticism by the public.  Snap out of it….the cops in this county don’t give damn what the public thinks.  That’s mean you. They could care less what you think. You have no value to them and in so long as the board of supervisors continues to reward the cop’s culture of contempt the police will continue not to give a damn about what the public thinks of them or anything else.
    Bulova and Hyland handed us an “independent auditor” to investigate the hundreds and hundreds of complaints about abusive behavior by the occupying force of outsiders that is the Fairfax County Police. And to their credit they did with a straight face and doing anything straight must have been a real chore for Hyland but anyway……the reason the board of supervisors dreamt up the “independent auditor” wasn’t to derail calls for police oversight. They did it because they can fire anyone in the position who either audits the police or acts independently.
    Elected officials, generally, are all about power and live in the cult of self adoration.  They don’t want or give a damn about what’s good for you. They want what’s good for them and controlling the “independent auditor” is what’s good for them. Citizens controlling a police review board does not benefit members of the board of supervisors in any way, shape, manner or form. In fact, police oversight would draw attention away from people like Sharon “Show me the money” Bulova and Gerry Dearie Hyland and it would sap their control over the county.
   Besides, the fact that the board of supervisors funds almost 100 advisory boards but can’t bring itself to create a citizens advisory board should tell the citizens advisory board advocates that a citizens review panel ain’t gonna happen.……..so snap out of the piss trance and revert to plan B and make a real difference, here and now, through political action and pulic awareness because police oversight until pigs fly….pun intended.
    If you want change don’t expect the local government to bring about that change. The only way to rein the police in is to fire the people who hire the cops and you will only be able to do that if you have grass roots support. Form a political action. Work the polling precinct with handouts on the issue of police corruption.  That should be easy since Virginia seems to have elections every three weeks.
   Build blogs and websites aimed at informing the people of Fairfax County about how corrupt, contemptuous and bloated the Fairfax County Police are.  Send speakers to community groups and churches to bring the issue to light.  People will listen if you give them something to listen too and if you include them in the process.   
   Police oversight isn’t the silver bullet that will end the systematic corruption and contempt that is the Fairfax County Police ebcuase the answer to fixing the Fairfax County Police isn’t one thing it’s many things.
   Not running the police department like a secret hillbilly cult is also part of the answer.
    Firing Sharon Bulova and keeping her out of public office forever is a very large part of the answer.
   Holding Gerry…that’s Gerry with G dearies…..Hyland accountable for his “spend whatever the cops want” actions over the past few years is part of the answer as well.
  Putting a stop to the cops costly an unneeded publicity campaign is part of the answer.
   Forcing the cops to live in the county that pays them (and again, pays them better than the national average) is part of the answer.
    Cutting the police budget by at least 20% and placing that cash where it’s needed (Schools, highways, more roads) is part of the answer.
   Explaining to the cops that using lethal force when unnecessary is a bad thing. So is setting up school teachers and eye doctors for false arrest. The cops don’t understand that those are morally wrong things to do and their actions support the claim.
    As to the suggestion of  bringing in the FBI to investigate possible civil rights violation by the Fairfax County Police. Forget it, that ain’t gonna happen in a Democratic stronghold while we have a Democratic administration in the White House.
    Besides investigating civil rights violations isn’t what we need to investigate. What we need to investigate is the reason that our elected officials are so hell bent on making the cops happy. To find that out, don’t send in the FBI send in the IRS to investigate the hundreds of nickel and dime political contributions that come into the Board of Supervisors campaign offers. Have the auditors pay special attention to those contributions that come in from Louden and Prince William Counties….you know…those two places where 80% of the Fairfax County police force lives.  And the investigators should ask “Are these low ball contributions, intended to fly in under the radar, coming from the sons, daughters, in-laws and other relatives of the Fairfax County Police at the urging of the cops union and if so, what are the cops getting in return at our expense?  A lot, actually.

  







Drugged up cops, its not an epidemic, its a source of income for the cops too.

Federal prosecutors say a second former Philadelphia cop has been charged in the alleged robbery of suspected drug dealers while on duty.  U.S. Attorney's office says a new indictment unsealed charges 27-year-old Sydemy Joanis along with 23-year-old Jonathan Garcia with conspiracy, robbery, attempted robbery and firearms crimes.

More idiots at work

Jasper, Texas a town with a history of racial unrest on Monday fired two white police officers recently captured on video slamming the head of Keyarika "Sha" Diggles,  a black woman, into a countertop and wrestling her to the ground. “The amount of force used was abominable,” the woman's attorney, Cade Bernsen said. Diggles, 25, was brought to the jail on May 5 for an unpaid fine. She was was on the phone with her mother trying to arrange to get the $100 owed when cop Ricky Grissom cut off the call.
There’s no audio on the video, but Diggles and Grissom were apparently arguing when Cunningham comes in behind Diggles and attempts to handcuff her. When she appears to raise her hand to be cuffed, Cunningham grabs Diggles by the hair and slams her head into a countertop. The officers wrestle Diggles to the ground before dragging her by her ankles into a jail cell.  “She got her hair pulled out, broke a tooth, braces got knocked off … it was brutal,” the lawyer.

But several dozen wittness have sworn that Ball threw his gun on the ground and was walking toward police with his hands up to surrender when he was shot.

He told the 911 operator that his son was depressed, but never said that the family was in danger or that a crime was in progress. A cop named Parra responded, finding the father changing a headlight and the mother indoors doing housework. The family says Parra asked about the son's whereabouts, but did not ask for details regarding his condition or why the family called 911.  Parra found Ramirez on the couch watching television, unaware that his family had called 911. Parra confirmed his identity and placed him under arrest by ordering him to stand up and turn around, according to the complaint. "In the process of standing up and complying with orders, Ramirez asked Parra why he was under arrest and if he could see his credentials," the complaint states. The cop responded by tasering Ramirez and shot him to death minutes afterwards.


In New York the State Senate, led by an idiot State Senator Joseph Griffo (R-Rome) passed a bill that would make annoying a policeman a felony. “Police cannot do their jobs if everyone is going to dispute their authority” Griffo the idiot said “We hope that by making it a felony to annoy an officer those accosted by the police will learn that the easiest path for them is to just do as they are told. If there are any legitimate beefs to be dealt with they can be taken up later by the lawyers.”

Gerry (With a G) Hyland’s


anal…sorry....ANNUAL steam bath with cops!!!!


  
   Hi Folks, I'm Gerry Hyland. I give away your money and I mostly give it to cops who don't even live here in the county. 

   Sure, the high schools are jammed packed with too many kids and not enough teachers and okay, so we don't have enough roads. 

  That's not important. (to me)

  What's important (to me) is that the cops get  Drones to watch you with, money for their navy and air force and new police stations that are built to suit royalty and replace perfectly fine existing buildings..and let's not forget those retirement packages lined with gold. 

     A new meal tax introduced by me will solve everything.

     To make sure the cops continue to get my support, I am once again having my anal steam bath with cops......



in the end, I'll get my way.

Mike Ronga has been arrested and jailed like a criminal should be and his betrayal of our office and the public trust is unforgiveable.” ow.ly/kKecn

Another drunk cop


St. Petersburg officer suspended after crashing his patrol car


ST. PETERSBURG — A St. Petersburg police officer who crashed his cruiser while speeding to join a police chase has been suspended for five days.
Officer Timothy Reyes, 29, was driving 110 mph in a 40 mph zone during an authorized chase March 24, St. Petersburg police said.
Reyes told other officers he was going east on 54th Avenue S near the 1900 block when a car pulled out in front of him. He swerved to avoid hitting it.

Investigators said Reyes' cruiser hit the median, slid and flipped. It hit a wooden pole, a metal fence and a tree before stopping. Debris from the pole damaged two parked cars.
All told, the crash caused $30,754 in damage.
Witnesses told officers they didn't see another car pull in front of Reyes. One witness reported seeing a car nearby but didn't know if it prompted Reyes to swerve.
Reyes, who was wearing his seat belt, was pulled from his cruiser and treated for his injuries.
Reyes previously was disciplined for causing a crash on Sept. 26, 2011, a fact officials considered when determining his current discipline.
Police spokesman Bill Proffitt said Reyes was suspended for carelessness, inefficiency and not taking due care to avoid an accident.
St. Petersburg police policy states officers in a chase can "exceed the posted speed limit by up to 25 mph, taking into account traffic, road and weather conditions," according to a department report. Reyes exceeded the speed limit by 70 mph.
The misconduct report stated the crash was "preventable."
The chain of events began about 12:40 a.m. March 24 when a 2002 Cadillac Deville was stolen from a gas station. About 20 minutes later, a man in a Kia intentionally, police say, swerved into oncoming traffic and rammed one of the officers searching for the Cadillac. That officer was not hurt.
Saying the driver had committed aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, the St. Petersburg Police Department authorized pursuit of the Kia.
Before the guidelines were loosened in 2010, St. Petersburg had a policy that allowed officers to chase only people suspected in violent crimes. Police can now chase suspects in lesser crimes like burglary and auto theft.

Bitten by a Drunk Chicago Cop, Woman Says


CHICAGO (CN) - A drunk, off-duty Chicago cop bit a woman's thigh so fiercely she required medical treatment - yet his cronies charged her with disorderly conduct, she claims in court.
Lisa Murata sued Chicago and 11 police officers, in Federal Court.
"On the early morning of May 4, 2012, the plaintiff, Lisa Murata, who was approximately 5'1'' tall and weighed approximately 115 pounds, was walking outside in the vicinity of 3478 North Clark Street in Chicago, Illinois, when, without any provocation on her part, she was struck and knocked to the ground by the defendant [Nicholas] Pocius, a man nearly twice the size of the plaintiff who, at the time, was off duty but intoxicated and acting in an unruly, abusive, profane and threatening manner toward other bystanders and who, apparently, had already been involved in some physical alteration with one or more persons within the same vicinity," Murata says in the complaint.
"After being knocked to the ground, the plaintiff, Lisa Murata, fell upon her back with the defendant Pocius on top of her. When the plaintiff attempted to free herself from the defendant, the defendant Pocius bit the plaintiff on her left thigh."
Murata was taken to a hospital and treated for a human bite wound, she says.
When Murata went to file a complaint against Pocius at the police station, she was "placed under arrest by the defendant [W.A.] Seski and the defendant [Kevin] Leahy for the alleged offense of battery upon the defendant Pocius, which had been approved by defendant [J.A.] Hoffman, whereupon the plaintiff was handcuffed to a bench and left in the interview room. Thereafter, plaintiff was transferred to a holding cell and after having remained in custody for several hours the plaintiff was released under a $1,500.00 Recognizance Bond with directions that she appear before Branch 29-2 of the Circuit Court of Cook County on May 30,2012 to answer to this criminal charge filed against her," according to the complaint.
Murata says she collected evidence by placing another police officer, Nick Prazuch, at the scene of the alleged assault, and found inconsistencies between the paramedics' and police reports.
"While defendant Pocius admitted at the scene of the incident to paramedics from the Chicago Fire Department that he had been 'drinking all night' and exhibited the odor of alcohol and while defendant Pocius exhibited the odor of alcohol as well as an inability to walk straight to the triage nurse at St. Joseph Hospital, the Original Case Incident Report of the defendant responding officers described defendant Pocius as being 'sober' without any mention of alcohol intake on his part," the complaint states.
It adds: "That while the defendant Pocius had admitted to the triage nurse at St. Joseph's Hospital to being in an altercation at a bar, the Original Case Report of the defendant responding officers made no mention of a bar and, instead, reported that defendant Pocius as having been assaulted while 'standing on the sidewalk and attempting to smoke a cigarette."
Prosecutors dropped charges against Murata in April when she informed them whom she intended to call as witnesses, she says in the complaint. She claims that Pocius was never disciplined for assaulting her.
She seeks punitive damages for violation of due process, conspiracy, assault and battery, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution.
She is represented by Timothy Okal.
Also named as defendants are Officers Joseph Siska, Edwin Dantes, S. Romanski, A. Warda, Paul Santangelo, and Ed Hurt.

Internal investigation continues at Hazel Park Police Department


HAZEL PARK — A Hazel Park police officer who crashed his vehicle while drinking and driving back in March has been convicted and sentenced.
Matthew Viviano, a 17-year veteran with the Hazel Park Police Department, was charged with operating a vehicle with a high blood alcohol content, which carries a maximum penalty of 180 days in jail or $200 to $700 in fines. He pled guilty to impaired driving, a 93-day misdemeanor.
During his sentencing in Lapeer County 71-A District Court, Judge Laura Barnard sentenced him to jail time but said he can do community service in lieu of jail time.
Viviano was also sentenced to a term of probation, which includes no alcohol, as well as outpatient counseling, random screenings, and attending three Alcoholic Anonymous meetings.
His fines and costs totaled $1,025.
The original incident occurred around midnight March 14. Viviano was off-duty, driving around Lapeer County while intoxicated.
Upon crashing, Viviano’s pickup truck flipped on its side, coming to a stop on Baldwin Road in the area of Lippincott Road.
The vehicle was still flipped when police arrived after witnesses called in about the accident. No one was injured, and Viviano was able to walk away.
He was taken into custody by Lapeer police and booked at Lapeer County Jail around 1:40 a.m. He was released around 3:30 p.m., on a ticket to appear in court.
While Viviano has now been sentenced, the HPPD continues to conduct an internal investigation. At press time, he remained suspended without pay.
“It’s an extremely serious situation,” said Hazel Park Police Chief Martin Barner. “Any conduct by my officers, on duty or off-duty, will reflect either positively or negatively, not only on the department, but the city, as well.
“At no time has the city of Hazel Park, nor the HPPD, intervened in any way with his court proceedings,” Barner said. “And as far as the court proceedings are concerned, he was treated as any other citizen would have been treated.”

Lawsuit filed against the City of Springfield for shredding Police Misconduct Files



A lawsuit was filed in Sangamon County Circuit Court today alleging that the City of Springfield, Illinois violated the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The lawsuit states that the Springfield Police Department shredded 73 Police Misconduct Files after Calvin Christian III sent a Freedom of Information request for those files.
The Lawsuit was filed by Attorneys: Don Craven, Esther Seitz, John Myers and Barbara Myers on behalf of their Client Calvin Christian, who has been in constant court battles with the City of Springfield to seek Police Misconduct files.
The lawsuit is also seeking a $5,000 penalty for each one of the 73 police misconduct files that were destroyed. That penalty could amount to a total of $365,000. The lawsuit is also seeking a re-creation of the improperly destroyed documents.
In the wake of this lawsuit, the City of Springfield sent the plaintiff’s attorney a copy of their authority to destroy records granted by the Illinois State Archivist. The City of Springfield does have the authority to destroy internal affairs files that are only 5 years old, which means they do not have the authority from the Memorandum of Understanding to destroy the 73 files which were less than 5 years old.
