Police officers in the US were charged with more than 400 rapes over a 9-year period

By Eliott C. McLaughlin, CNN
2 hrs ago


A police officer in Prince George County, Maryland, was charged this week with raping a woman during a traffic stop. He's pleaded not guilty, but it's a disturbing headline -- even more disturbing when you consider there are hundreds more like him.

Yes, hundreds. According to research from Bowling Green State University, police officers in the US were charged with forcible rape 405 times between 2005 and 2013. That's an average of 45 a year. Forcible fondling was more common, with 636 instances.

Yet experts say those statistics are, by no means, comprehensive. Data on sexual assaults by police are almost nonexistent, they say.

"It's just not available at all," said Jonathan Blanks, a research associate with the Cato Institute's Project on Criminal Justice. "You can only crowdsource this info."

The BGSU researchers compiled their list by documenting cases of sworn nonfederal law enforcement officers who have been arrested. But the 2016 federally funded paper, "Police Integrity Lost: A Study of Law Enforcement Officers Arrested," says the problem isn't limited to sexual assault.

"There are no comprehensive statistics available on problems with police integrity," the report says, and no government entity collects data on police who are arrested.

It adds, "Police sexual misconduct and cases of police sexual violence are often referred to as hidden offenses, and studies on police sexual misconduct are usually based on small samples or derived from officer surveys that are threatened by a reluctance to reveal these cases."

The nation's foremost researchers on the subject, thus, must often rely on published media reports. The BGSU numbers, for instance, are the result of Google alerts on 48 search terms entered by researchers. The scholars then follow each case through adjudication.

While those numbers represent a fair portion of cases, arrests rely on a victim making a report and a law enforcement agency making that report public, after an arrest or otherwise. With sexual assaults by police officers, neither is guaranteed.

Why the numbers are lacking

One of the greatest impediments to understanding the scope of police sexual assault is the victims' reluctance to report the crime.

"Who do you call when your rapist or offender is a police officer? What a scary situation that must be," said Philip Stinson, an associate professor of criminal justice who served as principal investigator for the police integrity paper and whose research assistants maintain the BGSU database.

No one interviewed for this story could give an estimate, even ballpark, on how underreported these types of crimes might be.

"I have to think it's a much worse problem than my data suggests," said Stinson, himself a former police officer.

There are several reasons behind the muddy data. The federal government cannot compel states to make the nation's 18,000 law enforcement agencies report the numbers. Even if they could, the Justice Department wouldn't have the resources to oversee and maintain such a database, Blanks said.

Unions also work hard to protect police officers and their reputations, he said.

"They don't want their officers and membership shamed if something goes wrong," Blanks said.

There also can be legal hurdles to obtaining basic information in such cases, he said, "and that's on purpose." Some states' laws shield the identities of police officers who commit crimes, he said, while some jurisdictions include nondisclosure agreements in victim settlements.

"The system is rigged to protect police officers from outside accountability," Blanks said. "The worst cops are going to get the most protection."

Victims include suspects and those police are supposed to protect

What data is available paints a jarring picture. One statistic from Stinson indicates that for every sexual assault that makes the news, there are almost always more victims -- on average, five more.

About half of the victims are children, researchers say. Stinson has gotten accustomed to hearing his research assistants proclaim during their work, "Oh my God, it's another 14-year-old."

Victims can include both the people police are supposed to be chasing and those they're charged with protecting, according to the police integrity paper.

"Opportunities for sex-related police crime abound because officers operate in a low visibility environment with very little supervision," it says. "The potential victims of sex-related police crime include criminal suspects but also unaccompanied victims of crime."

Experts say officers who prey on people they encounter while on duty take advantage of the trust the public places in police as an institution.

"Police have a reputational advantage over anyone, especially someone accused of a crime," Blanks said, explaining that a regular Gallup poll shows again and again that police are third only to the military and small business owners in terms of trust. "People want to believe the police."

Offenders who seek to victimize people know this, experts say, and they strategically select victims, bolstering their chances of not getting caught.

Researchers find that a predominance of the victims fall into at least one of several categories: They have criminal records, are homeless, are sex workers or have issues with drug or alcohol abuse. Essentially, predatory cops are "picking on people who juries won't believe or who don't trust police," Stinson said.

The ripple effect

To be clear: The majority of police officers are good people, not sexual predators. Every expert interviewed for this story concurs on this point. But the problem is much larger than individual officers, said author and former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper.

"I think it's a huge problem," he said. "In reality, there's probably no law enforcement agency that has not had this problem."

The ripple effect can be devastating to a community. Stamper, who was a policeman in San Diego for 28 years before taking the helm in Seattle in 1994, recalled when California Highway Patrol officer Craig Peyer was convicted of the on-duty killing of student Cara Knott after a traffic stop.

No San Diego officer was tangentially involved, yet the department experienced enormous trust issues with the community, he said. Residents were fearful and some motorists were anxious about being pulled over, said Stamper, whose books address the "dark side" of policing and how to fix it.

"It cheats good cops," he said. "If a police officer is arrested for having fondled a DUI suspect in a jurisdiction, that affects all officers."

The trust issue is only exacerbated by the "blue wall" of silence that's erected when an officer is accused of a crime, he said. That's to be expected, Stamper said, because officers rely heavily on each other, especially in dangerous situations, and ratting out a colleague could mean trouble for an officer the next time she or he needs backup.

"If I'm a snitch, then the chance that my fellow officers will not have my back is significant," the former police chief said.

Some possible solutions

Stamper and others believe the solution lies in revamping police culture.

"The paramilitary, bureaucratic structure produces a dysfunctional culture," Stamper said, adding that for one of the "most delicate and demanding" jobs in America, officers largely go unsupervised.

Specific to sexual assault, experts would like to see departments enact:

  • Policies "to make victims feel safe," Stinson said, which could include online or anonymous reporting and special officers trained in dealing with sexual assault victims
  • GPS tracking of officers, especially those with take-home vehicles, and monitoring of officers. If a supervisor notices a patrolman predominantly stops women between the ages of 18 and 30 at the same time of night in the same part of town, it would raise red flags
  • Rules forbidding departments from hiring officers who were fired from other agencies, which happens too frequently, Stamper said
  • Mandates that officers must activate their bodycams and dash cams and be punished if they don't. (This will actually vindicate officers more often than not, experts say)
  • Occasional sting operations, involving internal affairs, aimed at ensuring police officers are appropriately interacting with the public

"It's critical supervisors trust officers, but trust is earned," Stamper said, adding that the job is too important to trust officers blindly.

Police chiefs and sheriffs defending bad cops also erodes trust, Stamper said. He finds himself frustrated, he said, every time he sees a police executive step to a podium to decry the "bad apples" responsible for a crime that has tainted a department.

"If they repeatedly go back to that bank of microphones to bemoan the bad apples, it's time to look at the barrel. ... Look at the orchard," he said.

Are national standards in order?


Accountability is critical to changing police culture, experts say.

Stamper believes uniformity -- via the licensing of individual officers and the certification of police departments -- is key.

All 18,000 departments operate under their own rules, based on their traditions, policies, procedures and recruitment methods, he said. He believes creating national standards -- not for small things, but for larger constitutional issues -- could improve the quality of policing.

If a licensed officer were to violate someone's rights -- by illegally searching or arresting them, manipulating evidence, using unnecessary force or, of course, engaging in sexually predatory behavior -- that officer's license would be yanked.

Likewise, a city police department with a pattern of violations could lose its certification and be taken over the by the county. An offending sheriff's department could be taken over by the state, he said.

It's pie in the sky, Stamper acknowledges, but until America changes the nature of the conversation around policing, things are destined to remain the same when it comes to crooked cops.

"The forces of resistance are powerful," he said. "If you push the system, it's going to push back with equal or greater force."

FORENSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE- Anatomy of a Police Cover-Up (full version)
Plea4change


Published on Nov 23, 2017
Full version of how a cover up occurred in the police shooting of 21 yr old Michael E. Bell. This video also includes evidence planting at a homicide scene, the tasing of Keenan Smith and the tragedy of an officer suicide.

THE STORY

21-year-old Michael Bell Jr. pulled up to the house where he lived with his mom and sister in Kenosha, Wis., about an hour south of Milwaukee. A police officer who, according to a police report chose to follow Bell after observing his driving, arrived shortly after. A subsequent toxicology report showed that Bell had been drinking that night.

Dash cam footage from inside the squad car shows Bell exiting the vehicle he was driving, where he was confronted by the officer. The two walked off-camera, where police tried to arrest him. A struggle ensued, and while his mom and sister watched from the house, Bell was shot, point-blank, in the head.

Bell's father, Michael Sr., says he'll never forget the phone call he received on the night of Nov. 9, 2004, from his oldest daughter.

"She called me up: 'Dad, you need to come to the hospital, Michael's been shot.' And then she told me it was by a police officer," Bell says. "And I just I figured it might've been shot in the leg or shot in the arm ... but I came to find out that an officer placed a gun directly to my son's temple and took his life."

Gina Barton, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's law enforcement investigative reporter, covered the story back in 2004. She says that what led to the shooting was one of the officers shouting, "He's got my gun."

"And another officer thought that Mike Bell was trying to disarm his partner," Barton says.

Barton says Bell's mother and sister, who were watching the altercation unfold, heard the officer as well and they tried to yell that Michael Bell did not have the officer's gun.

"But apparently, they either didn't hear that or disregarded it," Barton says.

The Kenosha Police Department's detective division and internal affairs division immediately conducted an investigation. Barton says it didn't take long. Within 48 hours, the department had determined that the shooting was justified, that the use of force was proper and that none of the officers had done anything wrong.

"It wasn't until later that we realized just how little of an investigation had been done," Barton says. "[They] basically just accepted the officers' version of events. So they were cleared really quickly."

Michael Bell Fatal Shooting Cover up, the truth is finally coming to light.
Plea4change


Published on Sep 20, 2018
https://www.michaelbell.info - Michael had arrived at his own home, parked the car, and if you watch the video closely, had turned off the engine and was in the natural act of getting out of the car. Anyone who watches police video cannot point to another officer who approached a traffic stop in this manner. Michael, received an order and was given less than 1/2 second to comply. The real issue is the lying and cover-up.

In 2004, police shot and killed 21 year old Michael Bell outside his home in front of his mother and sister. The shooting was an execution with the gun placed directly to the young man's temple. This documentary demonstrates how the Kenosha, Wisconsin Police Dept. covered up a homicide. Please contact the following elected officials. They have the power to reopen an investigation into the police fatal shooting of Michael E. Bell. We need your help.

NYPD Bomb Squad's secret weapon: How little-known Total Containment Vessel was used to haul away CNN pipe bomb (and it's much more impressive than it looks)

  • The NYPD Bomb Squad broke out its Total Containment Vessel Wednesday to safely haul an explosive device
  • The sphere-shaped vessel was secured on the back of a truck before being transported from the Time Warner Center to a Rodman's Neck facility

Topic 1 concerns a group of retired Michigan law enforcement officers who are campaigning to legalize marijuana. They are claiming that other LEOs don't want to legalize the drug because they can illegally fabricate the smelling of marijuana as a hook to continue police action and to seize property through civil asset forfeiture. They go on to claim that "it's policing for profit". Retired Detective Howard Wooldridge, Neill Franklin, Senator Vincent Gregory and Margeaux Bruner are referenced in the story.

Police union cuts ties with attorney who defended Van Dyke in Laquan McDonald shooting


Chicago Tribune
Megan Crepeau, Jeremy Gorner
36 mins ago


The union representing rank-and-file Chicago police will no longer refer officers in need of legal assistance to the attorney who represents convicted former Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke, according to multiple sources.

The executive board of the local Fraternal Order of Police voted Tuesday against recommending the services of Daniel Herbert, the sources said.

Herbert confirmed Wednesday that he had appeared a day earlier before members of the board, who he said expressed displeasure with his handling of Van Dyke's case. Herbert was aware of the decision but said he had not been formally notified of the specifics as of Wednesday morning.

"I 100 percent stand behind the defense that I put on for Jason Van Dyke," said Herbert, himself a former Chicago police officer. "I gave my heart and soul to this case, and as long as my appearance is still on file, I'm going to continue to do everything I can to represent my client."

Union President Kevin Graham could not immediately be reached for comment. The organization, though, has a policy of not commenting to the Tribune.

After a monthlong trial this fall, a Cook County jury convicted Van Dyke of second-degree murder and 16 counts of aggravated battery in the 2014 on-duty shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The guilty verdict marked the first time in half a century that a Chicago police officer was convicted of murder in an on-duty incident.

This week's decision means the union will stop actively referring officers to Herbert. Officers with legal needs could still choose on their own to select him as their attorney, and the FOP would pay for legal expenses depending on the type of case, the sources said.

"There's no hard feelings," Herbert said. "If they don't feel that my services are of value to their members, then we should not be doing business together."

Herbert noted that many of the union board members were not in attendance at the trial and said their decision was motivated by politics. He declined to elaborate.

"I get along with most of the members on the board very well," he said. "There was just a couple people that really made things difficult, and I am relieved to be done dealing with them."

Reached by phone Wednesday afternoon, Van Dyke's wife, Tiffany, called the FOP board's decision "shameful" and said she had never been less than satisfied with the way Herbert and his legal team handled the case. In fact, the lawyer seems like part of the family now, she said.

"I trust in Dan completely. I think he is a phenomenal attorney," she said. "My husband, he thinks things through, he researches things, he doesn't just jump into a decision. He thought long and hard about making them his attorneys, and I don't think he regrets it one bit."

Van Dyke "absolutely 100 percent" wants Herbert to remain his lawyer, she said.

Herbert told the Tribune he now must consider whether continuing to represent Van Dyke would be "prudent" given his now-fractured relationship with the union.

Herbert left the Cook County state's attorney's office in 2004 to become an in-house lawyer for the FOP. He set up a private practice of his own in 2010.

Van Dyke's next court date is slated for mid-December. He was taken into custody immediately after the verdict and is being held in protective custody at a county jail in the Quad Cities area about three hours west of Chicago.

He is no longer a police officer since the Illinois State Police revoked his certification with his conviction. No sentencing date has been set.

Van Dyke fatally shot McDonald on the city's Southwest Side in 2014 after the teen refused commands to drop a knife. The court-ordered release of police dashboard camera video of the shooting sparked widespread outrage and allegations of a police cover-up because the teen appears to be walking away from officers, not lunging at them with the knife as alleged by Van Dyke and other officers.

Shocking moment grossly 'incompetent' detective investigating mysterious death of woman, 21, on a camping trip admits he didn't listen to 911 calls, order a rape kit OR look for DNA evidence - and then ruled her death an accident

  • Former DeKalb County detective Jeremy Taylor was deposed in June 2018 as part of a civil lawsuit in the 2015 death of Laureen Agee
  • Agee was camping with four friends when she was found floating facedown in Center Hill Lake in Tennessee
  • After two-month probe, Taylor concluded that Agee fell into the lake and either died from the fall or drowned
  • During his deposition, Taylor admitted he had never worked a homicide case and had no training in homicide investigation
  • Ex-detective said he did not listen to 911 calls reporting Agee's death, did not speak to the callers, did not interview nearby residents
  • He also failed to look for blood at the campsite, did not swab Agee's nails for DNA evidence and didn't order a rape kit because she was on her period

A Missouri town disbanded its entire police force

Washington Post
Eli Rosenberg
5 hrs ago


The small town of Garden City, Mo., disbanded its police force Wednesday, the department announced on social media.

According to the department, Chief Thomas Alber was told to lay off his entire staff immediately.

Subscribe to the Post Most newsletter: Today’s most popular stories on The Washington Post

“No explanation was given nor plans to staff the police department beyond the Chief,” the department wrote on Facebook. “No further guidance was given for pending criminal cases or coverage of the city when the Chief is not on duty.”

The town of about 1,600, about 50 miles southeast of Kansas City, was staffed by seven officers and five civilian volunteers. But it is already largely covered by the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, which responds to emergencies in the town.

The sheriff’s office will continue to handle emergency calls and patrol the area, according to NBC affiliate KSHB. Previously, a deputy would respond to calls if no police officer was available.

"We don’t have someone in Garden City 24/7, but many times when they didn’t have someone on duty, we usually respond to emergency calls down there anyway,” Cass County Sheriff’s Capt. Mitch Phillips told the TV station.

Phillips said the nearest deputy was stationed in Harrisonville, about 12 miles away.

“It might be a 10- or 15-minute emergency response time,” he said.

Phillips said his office was caught off guard by the announcement.

There was no response to emails sent to two town clerks for information. Alber did not respond to an email, either.

In an era of tight budgets and rising costs, disputes between small towns and their police forces spill into the news occasionally. In Indiana, the four officers who made up the police department in the 900-person town of Bunker Hill walked off the job and quit in 2016 over work- and pay-related issues. Earlier that year in Colorado, four members of the police force of Green Mountain Falls, population 700, quit because of a dispute with the mayor. In these cases, the local sheriff’s department usually steps in to handle emergency calls.

In July, a four-person police unit in Blandford, Mass., quit after disputes about the safety of the work, subpar equipment and low wages.

What's known — and not known — about the police shooting of security guard Jemel Roberson


Chicago Tribune
Matthew Walberg
2 hrs ago

This much is known about the death Jemel Roberson: The armed security guard was trying to subdue a suspect in a bar shooting in Robbins early Sunday when he was shot by a Midlothian police officer who responded to the call. Roberson is black; the unnamed police officer is white.

Beyond that, some basic facts are in dispute or unknown.

An attorney for Roberson’s family said the 26-year-old Chicago man was wearing a hat with “security” print on it. Illinois State Police, who are investigating, released a contradictory statement, saying Roberson was clad in “plain black clothing with no markings readily identifying him as a Security Guard.”

The attorney, Greg Kulis, also claims in a lawsuit filed Monday that multiple witnesses shouted at the Midlothian officer that Roberson was a security guard, but the state police report, citing witness statements, said its preliminary finding was that police officer gave multiple commands to Roberson to drop his firearm before the officer opened fire.

Late Wednesday, one of the other four people shot and injured in the gunfire exchange at the bar emerged. Dorian Myrickes told the Associated Press that he was also working security at the bar that night, saw the officer shoot Roberson and did not hear the officer first give Roberson any commands to drop his gun.

From his hospital bed, Myrickes also said Roberson had the word “security” printed on his hat and on the back shoulder of the black sweatshirt he was wearing. But Myrickes acknowledged that the officer might not have been able to see those, according to the AP report.

Another thing that’s clear is the bar, Manny’s Blue Room Lounge, was not authorized to serve alcohol, since it’s state liquor license expired on Sept. 30, and had not been renewed, according to the Illinois Liquor Control Commission.

Here are some other questions that remain:

• What were the circumstances of the gunfire at the bar that prompted the police response? Among the four injured was the person Roberson was restraining. That man is currently in custody and being treated for non-life threatening injuries, but no charges have been filed, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, which is handling the investigation of the initial shooting. Police officials have said it stemmed from a verbal dispute and escalated when someone left, returned with a gun and fired.

• Little is known about the officer who shot Roberson. He is white, a seven-year police veteran (Midlothian officials clarified Wednesday he’s been with that department nearly four year and worked for three at another department.) He is currently on paid leave while the state police Public Integrity Taskforce investigates.

• The details of Roberson’s employment at the bar are also murky. He was licensed to carry a firearm as a security guard, according to state records, but it’s unclear if he was licensed to work as an armed security guard at Manny’s specifically, since employers are also required under most circumstances to be licensed. Bar owners did not return multiple calls for comment, and state officials requested that the Tribune obtain records via an open records request. The request has been made, but the state’s response is still pending.
