Georgia officers on leave after coin-toss used to decide arrest

NBC News
Farnoush Amiri and Ethan Sacks and Kerry Sanders
2 hrs ago

Two Georgia police officers have been placed on leave after video showed them using a coin-toss app before determining whether to arrest a woman caught speeding in April, and the police chief said he is "appalled" by the move.

"Why am I being arrested?" Sarah Webb is heard saying to Officer Courtney Brown in the bodycam footage posted by NBC affiliate WXIA of Atlanta, which first reported the story.

Webb, who said Friday she was speeding because she was late for her job at a hair salon, was arrested on charges of speeding, reckless driving and driving too fast for conditions, according to police records.

On Monday, a prosecutor dismissed the charges, the station reported.

In the video posted by WXIA, Brown and another officer, Kristee Wilson, are heard discussing what they should do with Webb, and the Brown says that she doesn't have speed detection equipment and Wilson says she doesn't have any tickets. The officers used the terms "A" or arrest for heads, and "R" for release for tails, according to the station.

The video audio appears to show Wilson say "This is tail right?"

Brown says, "Yeah. So release?" and then Wilson says "23," or a police code for arrest, WXIA reported.

"These are people who are supposed to protect us, and instead are treating our freedom and our lives like games," Webb, 24, told NBC News in a phone interview Friday. "It's disgusting. It's scary to think police officers do stuff like this."

Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said both officers have been placed on administrative leave and an internal investigation has been launched.

Roswell, Georgia, police officers Courtney Brown, left, and Kristee Wilson

"I couldn't believe what I was seeing, to be honest," Grant told NBC News of the video. "It was appalling."

"This isn't a police procedure, to bring a coin flip — whether it's an app or an actual coin toss — that's not part of that decision making to decide to take someone's freedom," Grant said.

Webb said she didn't know the officers used the coin-toss app before arresting her until she was contacted by WXIA three weeks before her court date. In a police arrest report, Brown wrote that she was on patrol on April 7 when a vehicle sped past her, and she estimated in the report that the car was traveling around 85 mph in a 45 mph zone before it was pulled over.

Grant told NBC News that the two officers were put on administrative leave within a few days of Grant learning about the video. In a statement to WXIA, Grant said that the officer's behavior is not representative of the standards of the Roswell Police Department.

"I have much higher expectations of our police officers and I am appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision making process of something as important as the arrest of a person," he said.

Webb said she's not satisfied with the officers being put on administrative leave, which she called "a paid vacation."

"I would like to see them fired, because they shouldn't have been playing with my freedom on a flip of a coin," she said.

Cops Use Coin Flip to Decide Whether to Arrest or Release Woman
PoliceActivity



Published on Jul 14, 2018
** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **
Body camera video shows Georgia police officers laughing as they use a coin-flip app to decide whether to detain a woman during a traffic stop. The video shows Roswell police Officer Courtney Brown asking Sarah Webb whether she knew how fast she was going. Webb apologizes, saying she was late for work, and Brown tells her to turn off the car and hand over her keys. Brown then returns to her car to consult with fellow officers about whether to arrest Sarah Webb or just give her a ticket. “What do you think?” one of the officers asks. Brown says she didn’t record the actual speed at which Webb had been driving. She then can be heard saying, “Hold on,” as she opens a coin-flip app on her phone. Officer Kristee Wilson suggests that heads should mean arrest and tails should mean release. Brown agrees and flips the coin in the app. “This is tails, right?” Wilson asks. “Yeah, so release?” Brown responds. But then Wilson suggests a police code for arrest, and the two can be heard laughing. The officers decide to charge Webb with going too fast for conditions and reckless driving.

Brown then arrests Webb, handcuffing her and putting her in the back of a patrol car. Police Chief Rusty Grant said in an emailed statement Friday that as soon as he found out about the incident he started an internal investigation and put the two officers on administrative leave. He said he couldn’t discuss details as the investigation is ongoing. “I have much higher expectations of our police officers and I am appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision making process of something as important as the arrest of a person,” Grant said. The television station reports that the charges against Webb were dropped. Webb said she didn’t know that her fate had relied on a coin toss until the television station contacted her. “Wow, these people put my freedom in the hands of a coin flip,” she said. “And that’s disgusting.”

Topic 1 concerns a recent decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Horton v. Pobjecky. Off-duty and unarmed Winnebago County (Illinois) Sheriff’s Deputy Frank Pobjecky was purchasing a pizza at Marie's Pizzeria and talking with store manager Vincent Tarara when armed robbers Lamara Coates, Brandon Sago and Desmond Bellmon entered the pizzeria to rob them. After a struggle with the robbers and obtaining Tarara's firearm, Deputy Pobjecky fatally shot suspect Sago in the back 3 times as Sago crawled on the ground past him headed for the door. Pobjecky also shot suspect Coates in the back as he headed towards the exit and shot suspect Bellmon too. Deputy Pobjecky locked the front door to the store from the inside and did not venture outside to render first aide to the suspects. The court dismissed a lawsuit from Sago's estate against Deputy Pobjecky, the County Sheriff and Winnebago County alleging excessive force and lack of appropriate medical care. The court also spelled out in great detail why Deputy Pobjecky's conduct was constitutional in all respects.

Police shot an armed homeowner during a break-in. Are they to blame?

NBC News
Jon Schuppe
3 hrs ago


Early Monday morning, police in Aurora, Colorado, got a call from a woman saying a man had broken into her home. Inside, her husband, Richard Black Jr., a decorated Vietnam War veteran and retired accountant, was struggling with the intruder, who was naked and attacking their 11-year-old grandson, according to the family's lawyer.

After trying to pry the attacker away, Black, 73, fetched his 9mm handgun and shot the intruder dead, the lawyer, Qusair Mohamedbhai, said, citing the accounts of relatives who witnessed the attack.

The killing, under those circumstances, seem to fit within Colorado's "Make My Day" law, which protects gun owners who shoot a violent intruder in their homes from prosecution.

But that's not how the story ends.

Just as Black was shooting the intruder, Aurora officers were arriving at his house. Hearing gunfire and encountering an armed man — Black — one of the officers fatally shot him, according to police.


While many important details of the confrontation remain sketchy — authorities have released only a basic description, along with expressions of regret from the police chief — Black's death may not result in criminal charges. That's because the law generally gives officers broad discretion to use deadly force when they feel that their lives — or others — are in danger.

The case demonstrates the conflict between two American ideals: the right of civilians to arm themselves in self-defense, and the authority given to police to enforce laws, protect the public and, if need be, use deadly force to do so.

"It's fraught with peril if a homeowner is armed and protecting their family from danger and simultaneously injecting police into that situation," Mohamedbhai said. "The homeowner is at extraordinary risk and unfortunately what may happen may be a chilling effect on people calling police for assistance."

These types of incidents — officers mistakenly shooting armed citizens defending themselves from crime — happen from time to time, despite efforts by police and gun owners to prevent them. In 2008, Phoenix police shot and injured a homeowner who'd cornered an intruder in his home with his handgun. In 2015, an armed South Carolina man was shot and injured by police after he called 911 to report a break-in. In 2016, an Indianapolis man was shot and wounded by police after he reported a carjacking and left his house holding a gun.

Firearms instructors who teach courses required for gun owners to receive concealed carry permits say they stress to students that when calling 911, they should make sure to say they're armed, where they are and what they're wearing. They also advise students to put the gun down before officers arrive — and if they don't feel safe putting it down, then to take their finger off the trigger and not to wave it around. And they tell students to identify themselves.

At the same time, situations involving armed citizens are often discussed in police training. While much of the "shoot/don't shoot" decision comes down to split-second assessments of what officers encounter at a scene, communication is key, experts say. If someone has called 911, a dispatcher should find out if any armed citizens are on the scene, and relay that information to the officers. Officers should, if possible, announce themselves, or give homeowners a chance to identify themselves.

But reality can be messy and confusing. The person calling 911 may not know if any law-abiding citizens on the scene are armed. A dispatcher may not ask, or relay, such information to officers. Someone using a gun to defend against an attack may not immediately want — or think — to drop their gun.

"So much of the training in a case like this is going to be framed around what an officer knows at the time he or she arrives at the scene," said Jim Bueermann, president of the Police Foundation, a research and training organization.

That is particularly important in parts of America where there is a high rate of gun ownership — and a strong belief in armed self-defense, Bueermann said.

"There the officers are going to receive a slightly different slant on training — like, remember that not everyone with guns are the bad guys, and make sure you know who, to the best of your ability, you are dealing with," Bueermann said. "The problem comes when before an officer can figure that out, the law-abiding citizen with a gun turns toward the officer or does something that the officer interprets to be a threatening gesture and shoots him."

Harvey Hedden, executive director of the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association, said that it was "unreasonable" for officers to assume that anyone they encounter with a gun is an armed citizen protecting themselves.

"It is a tragedy and it's something that concealed carry holders and armed homeowners have to consider — when the police respond, there's no label on anyone to tell them who's the bad guy and who's the good guy," Hedden said.

But Tony Fabian, president of the Colorado State Shooting Association, an affiliate of the National Rifle Association, said the onus belongs on the police.

Fabian declined to comment on the Aurora case, saying that the facts — including whether Black knew police had been called — aren't clear enough to determine whether anyone is at fault. "But it seems to me that if there are questions about this tragic incident regarding training, I would expect that they would be most appropriately directed at the law enforcement agency and not the civilian homeowner who was defending his premises and its occupants," Fabian said in an email.

Aurora police have declined to provide details about the shootings beyond a statement posted on the department's blog. The department has also declined to release footage of the fatal encounter captured by officers' body cameras, citing a pending criminal investigation. The officer who shot Black, who has not been identified, has been placed on paid administrative duty.

Aurora Police Chief Nicholas Metz said in a video statement Wednesday that there had been inaccuracies in public reporting about the shooting, and said he planned to hold a news conference Thursday afternoon to correct some of the inaccuracies. "This has been a very tragic situation and a very heartbreaking situation for everyone involved," Metz said.

Mohamedbhai said that Metz has also offered to meet with Black's family in private to try to answer their questions ─ a gesture the family appreciated.

About 16 miles south of Aurora, in the town of Parker, firearms instructor Dave Heath has clipped a newspaper article about Monday's shooting. He plans to share it with his students as a lesson of how quickly things can go wrong for gun owners defending their homes.

"I'm not blaming either one of them, because we don't know what happened," Heath said. "There are too many factors. But the most important thing that's reinforced in my teaching is: Put the gun down when police arrive."

2 Florida cops plead guilty to framing innocent black teen for burglaries

Tribune News Service
By Jay Weaver, Miami Herald
6 hrs ago


MIAMI - Two former Biscayne Park, Fla., police officers pleaded guilty Friday to framing an innocent teenager with a string of home burglaries at the direction of the chief so his department could boast a perfect property crime-solving record.

The officers, Charlie Dayoub, 38, and Raul Fernandez, 62, admitted they falsified arrest affidavits for the 16-year-old black suspect for four unsolved break-ins in June 2013, a month before then-police chief Raimundo Atesiano touted the town's 100 percent burglary clearance record at a village commission meeting.

Atesiano told the two officers that he wanted them to unlawfully arrest T.D., the teen, for the residential burglaries "knowing that there was no evidence that T.D. had committed the burglaries," according to an indictment charging all three former officers. The charges against the teen were eventually dropped after the Miami-Dade state attorney's office noticed the four arrest affidavits, written by Fernandez and signed by Dayoub, all used similar vague language - that the "investigation revealed" T.D. employed the same "M.O." and the homes had a "rear door pried open."

Dayoub and Fernandez face up to one year in prison for violating T.D.'s civil rights, but they could receive less time at their sentencing hearing on Oct. 10 before U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore if they provide "substantial assistance" in their cooperation with the U.S. Attorney's Office. As part of their plea agreements, a civil rights conspiracy charge that carries up to 10 years in prison will be dismissed.

After Friday's plea hearing, defense attorneys Ana Davide and David Sobel, representing Dayoub and Fernandez, respectively, said their clients made "terrible mistakes" amid a "culture of fear" fostered by their former boss, Atesiano.

Atesiano, who resigned as the small suburban town's police chief in 2014, remains the only officer implicated in the false-arrest case to face trial on civil rights conspiracy and related charges. Last week, a third officer admitted falsifying arrest warrants for two men at the direction of the chief. Those men, both in their 30s at the time, were also black.

Guillermo Ravelo, who was fired from the force earlier this year, pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge that he violated the rights of the falsely accused men - one charged with a pair of home break-ins in 2013, the other with five vehicle burglaries the following year. Ravelo, 37, also pleaded guilty to using excessive force during a Biscayne Park traffic stop in 2013 when he struck a handcuffed suspect in the face with his fist.

The admissions of the three Biscayne Park officers to the false police arrests intensifies the spotlight on Atesiano. The 52-year-old former chief was indicted in June along with Dayoub and Fernandez, on a conspiracy and related charge of pinning four unsolved home burglaries on the teen so the chief could claim a perfect clearance rate on property crimes in 2013, federal prosecutors said.

The town reported clearing 29 of 30 burglary cases during Atesiano's tenure as chief in 2013 and 2014. But now that seemingly outstanding record has been refuted by the fact that at least 11 of those cases were based on false arrest reports, according to federal authorities.

Fernandez, Dayoub and Ravelo are all cooperating with the FBI and U.S. Attorney's Office in the case against Atesiano.

Atesiano has strongly denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty as he awaits trial. His defense attorney, Richard Docobo, questioned the integrity of the cops who have flipped for the feds to reduce their potential prison time.

Biscayne Park's new police chief and village manager insist they have overhauled the small department in the years since Atesiano resigned amid an investigation of allegations of racial profiling and other issues.

"If they have burglaries that are open cases that are not solved yet, if you see anybody black walking through our streets and they have somewhat of a record, arrest them so we can pin them for all the burglaries," one cop said in an internal probe ordered in 2014. "They were basically doing this to have a 100 percent clearance rate for the city."

In a report from that probe, four officers - a third of the small force - told an outside investigator they were under marching orders to file the bogus charges to improve the department's crime stats. While only one officer specifically mentioned targeting blacks, former Biscayne Park village manager Heidi Shafran, who ordered the investigation after receiving a string of letters from disgruntled officers, said the message seemed clear for cops on the street.

In the aftermath of Atesiano's indictment in June, the Miami Herald obtained internal public records suggesting that during his tenure as chief, the command staff pressured some Biscayne Park officers into targeting random black people to clear cases.

In the continuing fallout from the scandal, Miami-Dade prosecutors said this they will review old criminal arrests in Biscayne Park during Atesiano's tenure in 2013-2014. The state's review of the other cases will be done to determine if anyone was wrongfully convicted.

Officer charged with voluntary manslaughter in shooting near Dorney Park


BCCT
Posted at 4:05 PM Updated at 4:05 PM

A police officer was charged with voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a man reported to have been hanging on or jumping on moving cars near a Pennsylvania amusement park, a prosecutor announced Tuesday.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A police officer was charged with voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a man reported to have been hanging on or jumping on moving cars near a Pennsylvania amusement park, a prosecutor announced Tuesday.

Officer Jonathan Roselle of the South Whitehall Township police department had an “unreasonable” belief that his safety was endangered when he shot Joseph Santos on July 28, said Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin.

Roselle, 33, of Parryville, was directing traffic near Dorney Park when a “frantic” woman stopped and said someone had tried to enter her vehicle, and when the officer arrived Santos climbed on the hood of his vehicle and pounded on his windshield and side windows. He then walked away but wheeled around and approached, ignoring the officer’s commands to stop and get down on the ground, and the officer fired five times.

Martin said Santos, 44, of Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey had been engaging in “somewhat bizarre” behavior and at the time of the shooting was walking toward the officer. But he said Santos wasn’t running or rushing toward him, had no visible weapon and didn’t present any threatening posture, and there was no evidence that he had attempted any forceful felony. Martin said the officer, who he called “relatively inexperienced,” also had a flexible baton, stun gun and pepper spray, and made several remarks following the shooting indicating that he believed he had made a mistake.

Martin said he had approved a voluntary manslaughter charge rather than a third-degree murder charge because no malice was involved. To those who believed police brutality or racism was involved, he said the investigation “has disclosed no facts which would support those contentions.”

“In my opinion, this was the act of a relatively inexperienced officer who held a subjective fear for his own safety but made a decision which objectively was unreasonable in light of the facts as they existed and appeared at the time he discharged his weapon and killed Mr. Santos.”

Roselle, an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan and is currently a major in the National Guard, graduated from the academy in December 2017 and had 13 weeks of field training but had been on patrol by himself for less than five months, Martin said.

The Allentown chapter of the NAACP had called for the officer, who is on paid leave, to be fired and for Martin to step aside, citing the district attorney’s earlier remark that the officer “had to discharge his weapon.”

Martin called that a “very poor choice of phasing” but said it didn’t indicate bias, and he had clearly reached a different conclusion with more facts including audio and video recordings.


The district attorney said Santos said “Don’t do it” as he neared the officer, and there were reports that he had been asking for help in earlier encounters with others, but that any such remarks couldn’t be confirmed because dash cam and body cam audio wasn’t audible.

Defense attorneys said in a statement that “while the loss of a life is always unfortunate, it is not always unjustified” and Roselle believes his actions were “justified and appropriate” given the circumstances.

“Police officers face challenges every shift that may require split second decisions. Those decisions are then calmly reviewed, with 20/20 hindsight, by the criminal justice system, those in political office, the media and the public,” the statement from attorney Gavin Holihan said.

“He believes that when all of the evidence is presented publicly, any fair citizen will reach the same conclusion he reached: that the deadly force used on July 28 was justified and appropriate,” the statement said.
