Nashville police shooting video released; review announced

AP
3 hrs ago



NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Surveillance camera footage released Wednesday of a fatal police shooting in Tennessee appears to show a white police officer chasing a black man and opening fire as he runs away from the officer.

The video was released as Nashville Mayor David Briley announced a "comprehensive review" of policing procedures after last month's shooting.

Nashville Officer Andrew Delke, who is white, fatally shot a 25-year-old black man, Daniel Hambrick, on a sidewalk beside an apartment complex during a traffic stop July 26.

The video from a nearby school seems to show Hambrick fall to the ground after being shot and the officer move slowly closer with his weapon still drawn.

In the video, Hambrick does not appear to turn around toward the officer during the chase and shooting.

The release of the video prompted demands from the Nashville NAACP that Delke be fired and charged with murder, and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation open up a civil rights probe and a review of the Nashville Police Department.

In return, Nashville Fraternal Order of Police President James Smallwood criticized the release of the video before the investigation is completed, and said that if Hambrick dropped a pistol he was holding as ordered, he's confident Hambrick would still be alive.

Members of the Hambrick family sobbed, raised their voices in outrage, and urged for no violent protests in an emotionally raw news conference Wednesday. Their attorney, Joy Kimbrough, said the family had just seen the video for the first time earlier in the day.

"I just want justice for my son," Vickie Hambrick, Hambrick's mother, said during the news conference with the local NAACP. "That's all I'm asking. And for all the young black guys and young women, I want justice for them. I love them all."

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has said police had been looking for stolen vehicles, though Kimbrough said Hambrick wasn't in a stolen car. Bureau spokesman Josh DeVine has said authorities believe that during a traffic stop, Hambrick "reportedly emerged from the vehicle with a firearm in his hand" and the "situation escalated," resulting in Delke firing his gun several times. Hambrick appeared to have a dark-colored object in his hand during the chase in a separate video from a housing complex that also has been released.

The bureau said a handgun was recovered at the scene.

On the day of the shooting, Metro Nashville Police tweeted out a photo of a handgun, saying that a fatal police-involved shooting occurred and the "25-year-old man who carried this gun was shot by MNPD officer."

Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said the new video must be evaluated "contextually, with the entire TBI file, which obviously we don't have yet." He said the department maintains that Hambrick had a gun.

Aaron said Delke was placed on routine administrative assignment and would not return to street duty until the investigation is complete and the district attorney has assessed it.

Sam Hambrick Jr., Hambrick's uncle, questioned how his nephew could've been a threat while running away.

"I don't care if I have a hand grenade in my pocket; if I'm running away, I can't be a threat to you," Sam Hambrick Jr. said.

Smallwood, the Fraternal Order of Police official, countered that Hambrick refused commands to drop the gun, and could've fired over his shoulder or under his arm, or swung his arm back and shot the gun upside down. Smallwood said his group is confident that the investigation will exonerate Delke.

Nashville District Attorney General Glenn Funk's office said the footage was released "in an effort to show transparency as much as possible during this investigation," adding that the investigation is expected to be finished within the next two weeks.

The mayor said neither he nor Funk has made any judgments yet on the officer's actions.

"It is absolutely necessary that in this context, we continue to conduct ourselves as a community peacefully and to give the process a chance to reach its final conclusion, while we work hard as a community to improve the way we police in Nashville," Briley said.

The shooting death has heightened calls from community members who want to create a police oversight board in Nashville. A group has gathered more than twice the number of signatures required for a referendum on the topic, and the local election commission needs to approve the language and 8,269 signatures to place it on the ballot.

The mayor said he is for civilian oversight of the police department but said he has questions about that particular proposal.

  • Garnier said during the murder trial he accidentally killed her during rough sex
  • Prosecutors say the murder was calculated and he should serve at least 16 years
  • A hearing to determine when Garnier will be eligible is scheduled for Monday

Trigger Happy Cop Suspended for Remarks
Dominick Izzo


Streamed live 2 hours ago
A Connecticut police officer has been suspended after a video emerged of him warning suspected trespassers not to do anything stupid, because he is “trigger-happy” and will be paid for overtime if someone gets shot.
“If anybody wants to fight or run, I’m a little trigger-happy guys, I’m not gonna lie. And I get paid a ton of money in overtime if I have to shoot somebody. So don’t do anything stupid,” Hartford Police Sergeant Stephen Barone is heard telling a group of young people that he stopped for alleged trespassing on Thursday night.

The three-minute video, which surfaced on Friday, led to Barone’s suspension from the force pending an internal review of his interaction with the public.

State Police probe clears leaders in hiring of trooper with drug-dealing past


By Andrea Estes and Shelley Murphy
5 hrs ago



An internal Massachusetts State Police investigation has cleared agency officials of wrongdoing for hiring a trooper with a drug-dealing past, and blamed her for not disclosing her role as a key witness in a high-profile trafficking case.

Trooper Leigha Genduso resigned Friday afternoon upon reviewing the internal investigation, which her attorney called “a coverup from day one.” She received a dishonorable discharge, which she said she will appeal.

The internal affairs report recommended her termination and cited 11 violations of the agency’s rules and regulations. It concluded a 2013 background check was “thorough and complete” and the only reason the investigation didn’t turn up her “illicit past” was because of Genduso’s “omissions and deceptive responses.”

The report made only a glancing reference to Daniel Risteen, a top agency official who lived with Genduso at the time she applied to work as a trooper. Lieutenant Colonel Francis Hughes, described by several troopers as a close friend of Risteen, was a member of the three-person review board that approved Genduso’s background investigation.

Neither appeared to have been questioned as part of the internal probe, according to the 44-page report. Neither Risteen nor Hughes could be reached for comment Friday.

“For them to completely absolve themselves is disingenuous,” Genduso’s attorney, Daniel Moynihan, said of State Police officials. “They went along with it. Now they act shocked.”

State Police spokesman David Procopio said Friday that the internal probe found Genduso didn’t disclose her past to any member of the agency, and she made “demonstrably false statements regarding her past involvement in criminal activities” on her application.

“Under the leadership of Col. Kerry Gilpin, the Massachusetts State Police recently created a new checklist for the background check process, and broadened the questionnaire for recruit candidates to include questions about involvement in any criminal investigation, even if the candidate was not charged with a crime,” Procopio said in a statement.

Questions about how Genduso, an unindicted co-conspirator in a major marijuana trafficking case, became a civilian dispatcher in 2008 and then a trooper erupted earlier this year as the law enforcement agency was embroiled in a series of scandals.

Moynihan has maintained that Genduso’s involvement with her former boyfriend, convicted drug trafficker Sean Bucci, was well-known across the State Police ranks, even before she was hired as a dispatcher.

“Our investigation has revealed that it was clear that numerous members of the command staff, both past and present, were aware of the Bucci matter before Ms. Genduso’s hiring even as a dispatcher, much less a trooper,” Moynihan wrote in an Aug. 6 letter to Gilpin. He called Genduso an exemplary employee and noted she received positive evaluations and a commendation.

Following her resignation Friday, Genduso said she decided to “walk away with some dignity rather than keep battling.”

“Nobody wants to talk about how I did the job the best I could,” she added.

A year before becoming a State Police dispatcher, Genduso testified in federal court in 2007 in a case investigated by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration and State Police. Genduso admitted that she helped Bucci cut up bales of marijuana and delivered gift-wrapped, 10-pound packages of marijuana to a customer of her own.

The internal investigation minimized the fact that details of the Bucci case — and even a transcript of her testimony posted on the court website — were readily available at the time she was hired.

Her former North Reading address, cited on her application, was a house owned by Bucci and forfeited to the government following his 2007 conviction, according to a press release from the US attorney’s office that was posted on the Internet.

The internal State Police probe, conducted by Detective Lieutenant David J. McQueeney, indicates that Genduso withheld information or lied nine times — including failing to disclose her involvement with drugs and lying when she said she had never been with someone who committed a crime and that she had never been accused of committing a crime.

The investigation also concluded that she was untruthful during her internal affairs interview in April, saying among other things that she didn’t know why she was granted immunity before she testified in 2007.

In the April interview with investigators, Genduso said she didn’t believe anyone on the State Police was aware of her past drug dealing or testimony.

But investigators don’t appear to have asked anyone directly whether Genduso’s background check was less rigorous than usual because she was involved with Risteen.

Detective Lieutenant Jodi Dotolo, the trooper who conducted Genduso’s background check, said she wrongly assumed that Genduso had already undergone a thorough vetting when she was hired as a dispatcher in 2008. Even so, the internal affairs report found Dotolo’s background check was “thorough and complete.”

In a recent interview with the Globe, Genduso said Dotolo told her “she didn’t need to go to my house because she knew who I lived with.”

The internal investigation acknowledged that at the time Genduso applied to be a dispatcher, the background check process was not as thorough as it should have been.

The department was in a “hiring crunch,” the report said, so a “modified background investigation” was conducted.

Bob Long, a retired State Police detective lieutenant and security consultant, said it was “absurd” for State Police to conclude that Genduso’s background check was thorough.

“They never would have had this problem if it was done right,” Long said. “I think the fact that she wasn’t forthcoming is a problem, but I think the State Police failed in their due diligence.”

The internal investigation quoted Shawn Givhan, director of State Police Human Resources, who said background investigators assume that applicants are telling the truth — unless the department received a tip, they would have no way of finding information on someone’s background.

Long called it “a definite failure” by State Police that the agency neglected to ask the North Reading police about any calls or reports involving Genduso’s former residence, where she lived with Bucci up until 2004.

In fact, a North Reading police detective told State Police that if the troopers conducting Genduso’s background checks had asked about the address, they would have found “numerous entries and reports.”

Troopers involved in the federal drug case told internal affairs investigators they had no memory of Genduso, even though she was a key witness and an unindicted co-conspirator given immunity to testify.

The internal affairs investigation concluded that “no evidence” exists that three troopers involved in the federal probe knew Genduso was associated with Bucci or that they “withheld information” from the department.

Genduso had been on unpaid suspension since the Turtleboy Sports blog first disclosed her past in February.

Genduso believes that if the revelations had not been posted online, she would have gone on to have a long and exemplary career as a state trooper.

“I think the hardest thing is on my 10 years on the State Police, I did nothing but try to be the best dispatcher, the best trooper,” Genduso said earlier this month. “I was trying to do the right thing for 10 years. I wouldn’t even call in sick. Now that’s gone.”

Wife of Baltimore police detective says her husband did not kill himself


By Nicole Chavez, CNN
3 hrs ago

Authorities initially determined that Suiter's death was a homicide and launched a manhunt for the suspected gunman. After no arrests were made, police commissioned an independent review of the homicide investigation earlier this year.

Less than an hour before her husband died, Nicole Suiter remembers joking with him about a video she took of the Baltimore police detective dancing.

Sean Suiter was in a great mood, Nicole Suiter said. He was hardly a man preparing to take his own life.

In her first public comments since her husband's death, Nicole Suiter said a recently released report concluding that Sean Suiter committed suicide is "outlandish."

The detective was shot with his own gun November 15 in a vacant lot in West Baltimore, police said. Officials initially said Sean Suiter was fatally shot in a struggle with a suspect, but an independent report released Tuesday said he killed himself.

Nicole Suiter, a mother of five, said the release of the report gave her the strength to speak out after nine months of silence.

" will not go on allowing anybody to shame my husband's name and ruin his legacy with these false allegations of suicide," she told CNN affiliate WMAR.

The detective was in "good spirits" on the day of his death, Nicole Suiter said.

"Based on the fact that no one knew my husband better than I, I will not accept the untimely death of Sean as nothing other than a murder, which is being covered up for reasons unknown to me or my family," she said.

She plans to stand with protestors in Baltimore and seek justice for her husband.

"I can't heal until I get the truth," she said.

Report says he died by suicide
The fatal shooting occurred the day before Suiter, a homicide detective, was scheduled to testify before a federal grand jury in a police corruption case involving fellow officers. Then-Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said at the time that a brief call Suiter made on his police radio occurred during a struggle with a killer.

On Tuesday, the Independent Review Board released a report saying they believed Suiter took his own life.

He was right-handed and the bullet entered from the right side of his head, the report said.

The panel also pointed out the lack of defensive wounds on Suiter's knuckles, hands or arms, along with the presence of shell casings from Suiter's Glock service weapon at the scene and the officer's DNA inside the barrel of the gun.

Attorneys representing Nicole Suiter said the report did not take into consideration all the evidence that was available after the murder investigation, including their client's testimony.

"What bothers me about this entire report is that they are attacking a man who served our country in Iraq, fought a war for us, and then came home and became a police officer after he served," attorney Duane Stone said.

Case remains open
Gary Tuggle, Baltimore's interim police commissioner said the police department gave the independent panel "unfettered access" in the case.

The medical examiner has ruled the detective's death a homicide.

Both the police department and the medical examiner's office are reviewing the report's findings and will decide whether it warrants any changes, officials said. A spokesman for the medical examiner's office said Wednesday that it does not discuss cases under investigation.

The case is expected to remain open until a decision is made, Tuggle said.

CNN's Darran Simon and Janet DiGiacomo contributed to this report.

5 Stresses Cops Deal With That Non Cops Should Know About
Mike The Cop


Published on Aug 20, 2018
Let me be very clear: I do not believe cops are somehow "more special" or more "important" than anyone else. However, what I do assert is that there are unique stresses in this job that I have experienced first hand that I think non-cops would do well to understand and cops would be served well to recognize and deal with properly.

In no way do these stresses imply that cops are then excused in treating people poorly when that happens. However, it may be an indicator of why that does happen in some cases.

If you are a cop either wanting to better understand how to manage stress or are truly struggling under the weight of it, please reach out to our contact via the Call4Backup campaign: david[at]humanizingthebadge.com
