Topic 1 concerns Initiative 940 has passed in Washington state, thus making it easier to prosecute law enforcement officers (LEOs). The measure eliminates the need for prosecutors to prove that the LEOs acted with "evil intent" or with "malice" when prosecuting them for criminal charges like manslaughter. Washington is the first state to pass such legislation which also requires de-escalation and mental-health training for police, first aid to be administered to a victim of deadly force by LEOs and independent investigations on the use of deadly force. Reference is also made to House Bill 3003 and Rep. Roger Goodman.

They look like cops — and now Michigan is finally paying attention

USA Today
Gina Kaufman and Jim Schaefer
5 hrs ago


DETROIT — The Michigan agency in charge of law enforcement licensing has formed a committee to study the issue of unlicensed civilian reserve officers following a Detroit Free Press investigation that exposed a lack of state oversight.

The Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards designated the three-member committee at a meeting earlier this month.

The agency has had the authority for nearly two years to set training requirements for reserve officers, who are generally volunteers. The law giving the agency that power went into effect in January 2017.

But officials with the agency previously told the Detroit Free Press that other responsibilities and limited resources had taken precedence.

► Oct. 24: They look like cops, but they're not. And they're all over Michigan.

The issue will be a priority next year, said Chairman Michael Wendling of the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards, known in law-enforcement circles as MCOLES. He contends that reserve officers have a legitimate role in law enforcement.

"MCOLES would like to see them trained in a way that they can be a safe resource to be used," Wendling said.

Last month, the Free Press reported that Michigan has no state standards for reserve officers, putting it behind other states that have already implemented requirements, such as training and background checks.

The investigation also found officials at the agency in charge of licensing did not know how many such civilian officers there were statewide. Using Freedom of Information Act requests, the Free Press tallied about 3,000 unlicensed civilian officers across Michigan. Most are reserves or auxiliary officers, but other civilian officers also were identified, including those on sheriff's posses, mounted patrols and marine units.

The responsibilities of reserve officers vary. Some communities allow them to patrol, sometimes pairing them up with licensed officers. Reserves do not have law-enforcement authority unless they are paired with a licensed officer, officials have said.

The committee formed by the commission at its Nov. 7 meeting will study issues such as standards and how reserve officers are being used in law enforcement agencies, said Kenneth Grabowski, a commission member on the committee and legislative director for the Police Officers Association of Michigan.

“The newspaper article and the topic was broached by several commissioners, and we decided to take a look at it," he said.

Wendling said it's unclear how long it might take the commission to reach a consensus because commissioners have differing opinions on the issue. The commission is made up of members from all areas of law enforcement, including police management and labor leaders.

"I think everybody has the same goal — to have the most professional law enforcement officer on the street," he said. "But there's a lot of budget concerns amongst small departments and things that have to be taken into consideration."

Supreme Court Considers a Thorny Question of Free Speech and Police Power


NYT
By ADAM LIPTAK
12 hrs ago


WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court considered on Monday whether to allow lawsuits claiming abuse of police power in retaliation for exercising free speech rights. The case concerned a claim for retaliatory arrest at a festival in a remote part of Alaska, but several justices seemed to have an array of controversies in mind.

“You can think of it,” Justice Elena Kagan said, “as a case where an individual police officer, you know, decides to arrest for jaywalking somebody wearing a ‘Black Lives Matter’ T-shirt or, alternatively, a ‘Make America Great Again’ cap.”

Some courts have said the existence of probable cause for the arrest — the person was, after all, jaywalking — is always enough to bar lawsuits claiming retaliation in violation of the First Amendment. Others have allowed juries to decide whether the officers involved intended to suppress protected speech.

The Supreme Court has been struggling to find a line separating two kinds of arrests, Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. said, noting that “there are a range of cases.”

At one extreme, he said, were people arrested after mouthing off to the police in heated and confusing settings. “One of them says something insulting to the officer, and that person ends up getting arrested,” Justice Alito said.

On the other, he went on, were serious abuses. “A journalist has written something critical of the police department,” he said. Some time later, that hypothetical journalist, he said, was arrested for exceeding the speed limit by five miles per hour.

Justice Alito suggested that the Supreme Court would have a difficult time fashioning a standard that would bar the first kind of suit but allow the second one.

“Which of these unattractive rules should we adopt?” he asked.

The case argued Monday arose from an encounter at the Arctic Man ski and snowmobile event in the remote Hoodoo Mountains of interior Alaska. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. suggested that the setting alone should give officers some leeway.

“You’ve got 10,000 mostly drunk people in the middle of nowhere and you’ve got eight police officers,” he said.

The plaintiff, Russell P. Bartlett, was arrested after yelling at police officers and refusing to answer questions. Afterward, Mr. Bartlett said, one officer told him, “Bet you wish you would have talked to me now.”

He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, but prosecutors dropped the charges, saying it was too expensive to pursue them given the distances involved. Mr. Bartlett sued, saying he had been arrested for exercising his First Amendment rights.

Justice Alito suggested that Mr. Bartlett’s statements were not especially worthy of protection.

“Did your client say anything that was of social importance?” Justice Alito asked Zane D. Wilson, a lawyer for Mr. Bartlett. “He’s not protesting some social issue or making some important point. He’s involved in a personal dispute with a police officer.

Mr. Wilson disagreed. “The right to criticize a police officer,” he said, is “one of the distinguishing features between a police state and a free country.”

The case, Nieves v. Bartlett, No. 17-1174, was the court’s third attempt to answer the thorny question of whether the existence of probable cause was always enough to defeat a lawsuit claiming retaliatory arrest. The Supreme Court agreed in 2011 to decide the question but ended up ducking it.

In June, the court ruled that Fane Lozman, a critic of a Florida city who was arrested at a City Council meeting, could pursue a case for retaliatory arrest, but only because the city appeared to have had an established and official policy of harassing him.

In 2006, the Supreme Court ruled in Hartman v. Moore that government officials could not be sued under the First Amendment for retaliatory prosecutions where there was probable cause to pursue the prosecution. The question on Monday was whether the same rule should apply to arrests.

Justice Stephen G. Breyer seemed eager to find a compromise that would allow dismissal of many suits at an early stage but allow ones with substantial, objective proof that officers intended to retaliate.

Justice Breyer added that allowing such suits could have unpredictable consequences, among them the possibility that police officers “will be very careful and not arrest people whom they should arrest.”

For framing innocent black men, a Florida police chief gets 3 years in prison

By Jay Weaver and David Ovalle, Miami Herald
6 hrs ago


MIAMI - Raimundo Atesiano, the former Biscayne Park police chief who directed his officers to frame innocent men for a series of unsolved burglaries, admitted he wanted to appease community leaders and polish the village's property crimes record.

Even in a small village of about 3,000 residents, the pressure was just too much, he said.

"When I took the job, I was not prepared," Atesiano told a federal judge on Tuesday. "I made some very, very bad decisions."

His apologies did not sway U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore, who on Tuesday sentenced the 53-year-old former cop to three years in prison. He allowed Atesiano to remain free for two weeks before surrendering so he can care for his mother, who is dying of leukemia.

In September, Atesiano pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge of depriving the three suspects of their civil rights because he and the officers charged them without a legal basis. Atesiano's conspiracy conviction carried up to 10 years in prison.

Atesiano resigned from the Biscayne Park force in 2014 and previously worked as an officer for Sunny Isles Beach, Hialeah and Miami-Dade County Corrections.

Atesiano's sentencing ended an ugly chapter in Biscayne Park's recent history, where allegations of racism - the three men falsely charged are black - tainted the police department's culture of law enforcement in the mostly white community.

Village leaders, including Police Chief Luis Cabrera, a former veteran officer in Miami, say they have reformed the department.

Over the summer, three former Biscayne Park police officers who had worked under Atesiano while he was the chief in 2013 and 2014 pleaded guilty to civil rights violations stemming from the false arrests of the three suspects. All three ex-cops cooperated with the FBI and prosecutors Harry Wallace, Donald Tunnage and Trent Reichling in the hope of reducing their prison time.

In August, Officers Charlie Dayoub, 38, and Raul Fernandez, 62, pleaded guilty that they falsified the arrest affidavits for a 16-year-old black suspect for four unsolved break-ins in June 2013, a month before then-police chief Atesiano touted the town's 100 percent burglary clearance record at a village commission meeting. In October, Judge Moore sent each to prison for a maximum one-year term.

The charges against the teen were eventually dropped after the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office noticed the four arrest affidavits 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."

A third Biscayne Park police officer admitted falsifying arrest warrants for two men at the direction of Atesiano during 2013 and 2014. Those men were in their 30s at the time. Guillermo Ravelo pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge that he violated the rights of the two falsely accused black men. and used excessive force on a Hispanic man during a traffic stop. A different federal judge, Cecilia Altonaga, sentenced Ravelo, 37, to two years and three months in prison.

In January 2013, Atesiano ordered Ravelo and Dayoub to arrest Clarence Desrouleaux on charges of breaking into a pair of homes in Biscayne Park, according to a factual statement filed with the ex-chief's plea agreement. Atesiano told the officers to take Desrouleaux into custody because "there was reliable information that (he) had forged and cashed a check stolen during the course of" a third home burglary, according to the statement.

Desrouleaux, 35, pleaded guilty and ended up getting sentenced to five years in prison. He was deported to Haiti. In light of new evidence about his false arrest, the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office threw out his wrongful conviction.

Also, in February 2014, Atesiano told Ravelo that he wanted him to arrest Erasmus Banmah, 31, for five unsolved vehicle burglaries, despite knowing there was "no evidence" that he had committed the crimes, prosecutors said in court records. A couple of days later, Ravelo filled out five arrest forms falsely accusing Banmah of the vehicle burglaries at five different street locations in Biscayne Park.

The admissions of the three Biscayne Park officers to the false police arrests magnified the evidence against Atesiano, exposing not only his leading role in the civil rights conspiracy but also his lies to the town's leaders. The police department reported clearing 29 of 30 burglary cases during Atesiano's tenure as chief, but at least 11 of those cases were based on false arrest reports, according to federal authorities.

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.

"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 continuing fallout from the scandal, Miami-Dade prosecutors said they will review old criminal arrests in Biscayne Park during Atesiano's tenure in 2013-2014.

Atesiano was not charged with violating anyone's civil rights because of their race. His lawyers called into question "any notion that random people were targeted for arrests or that race played any factor in the arrests of any individuals."

"Quite the contrary," Atesiano's defense attorney Richard Docobo wrote in court papers seeking a two-year prison sentence. He said the three men falsely arrested in 2013 and 2014 had a history of criminal activity in the suburban town north of Miami.

"They were no saints," Docobo told the judge on Tuesday.

The judge still gave Atesiano 36 months in prison - three more than what the government had asked for.

Emantic Bradford - CCW Permit Shot By The Police
DEMCAD


Published on Nov 27, 2018
My commentary on the police shooting of a 21 year old black man who falsely identified as an active shooter in an Alabama shopping mall. Witnesses say that Bradford was armed and waving people to safety. The police apparently shot Bradford, because they thought he was the shooter. Bradford's mother believes that the outcome would have been different if he were white. What do you think?

Infamous 'Norfolk Four' sailors wrongly accused of a woman's rape and murder are paid $4.9million in settlement 21 years after their conviction, following a campaign by novelist John Grisham

  • Four sailors were convicted in 1997 rape and killing of Michelle Moore-Bosko
  • Eric Wilson, Danial Williams, Joseph Dick and Derek Tice were later exonerated
  • The city of Norfolk has agreed to pay $4.9million to the sailors and the state agreed to pay $3.5million
  • DNA evidence linked another man, Omar Ballard, to the crimes
  • Three of the men were granted conditional pardons in 2009 but their convictions remained on the books
  • Wilson had failed to get his conviction overturned in court because he had already completed his sentence when he brought the challenge
  • The men have long said they confessed only after being intimidated by police

Why Police Applications Are DOWN!
DEMCAD


Published on Dec 5, 2018
My commentary on why the number of police applicants are down across the country. Nashville, Seattle, Baltimore, police departments are struggling to find new recruits. Why are so many first year cops leaving the field? Liability, media scrutiny, controversial police shootings and more.

Who wants to be a police officer? Job applications plummet at most U.S. departments.

  • NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo will face a disciplinary trial next May a judge said
  • His demands to delay his department trial until July were rejected Thursday
  • Federal prosecutors have until next July to file a civil rights charges federal case
  • The white cop, 33, is charged with reckless use of a chokehold and intentional use of a chokehold in Eric Garner's 2014 Staten Island death

How Phoenix Explains a Rise in Police Violence: It’s the Civilians’ Fault

NYT
By RICHARD A. OPPEL Jr.
2 hrs ago


PHOENIX — All Marco Zepeda, a 44-year-old blind man, wanted to do when he went inside a convenience store last June was use the bathroom.

But as he tried to find his way, the police report said, Mr. Zepeda had the misfortune of walking near a police officer using a urinal. Thinking Mr. Zepeda had come too close, the officer pushed him, according to his account. They scuffled. Mr. Zepeda was tackled after he threw a punch, the officer said.

Sign Up For the Morning Briefing Newsletter

“You just turned around and started pushing me like crazy,” Mr. Zepeda, a father of four who sells brooms from a pushcart, says on a video that captured the aftermath. “I didn’t know you were a cop.”

But rather than chalk up the scuffle to an unfortunate misunderstanding, the police upped the ante, taking Mr. Zepeda to jail.

There, he was treated like a serious criminal, charged with aggravated assault on an officer, a felony. He denies punching the officer.

Mr. Zepeda’s story illustrates what community activists say is a serious issue: The Phoenix police are unusually quick to use force, slow to back down, and make a habit of releasing selective or misleading information about what happened. That is why, the activists say, the police here have shot more civilians this year than officers in any other city of its size, by far.

Despite the Police Department’s vows to improve transparency, the city has not provided reports on officer-involved shootings and disciplinary cases that were requested by The New York Times almost four months ago.

Critics say the department has avoided confronting the issue, despite having 41 shootings so far this year, almost twice as many as last year and 11 more than the combined total for the three cities closest in size — Philadelphia, San Antonio and San Diego.

While many departments have reacted to police violence with soul-searching and an emphasis on de-escalating tense situations, some Phoenix officials blame people who they say are just too aggressive toward the police.

“I don’t think there’s a sense that there’s something wrong in the department,” said Ed Zuercher, the city manager. “The issue is, ‘What’s going on in our community in total that assaults on police officers are up, the use of weapons against police officers is up, and that police officer-involved shootings are up?’”

Critics say the Police Department cannot — or will not — substantiate such assertions. The department “makes these really biased claims against the community, and when we push back asking for the stats, they refuse to release the cases they say they’re citing,” said Viridiana Hernandez, executive director of Poder in Action, a Phoenix-based community group.

Since the early 1990s, Phoenix’s violent crime rate has declined along with the rest of the nation’s, despite ticking up in the past few years, and is on a par with that of other large cities.

Chief Jeri Williams has commissioned a study of the rise in shootings and increased officer training — though a spokeswoman did not respond to questions about what kind of training. Chief Williams said the shootings this year have had little in common with one another. “If you look at other cities across the country, they might be able to point to one geographical area, one group of people, one criminal element,” but not so in Phoenix, she said.

In Mr. Zepeda’s case, he says he was the victim. The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute him, citing “no reasonable likelihood of conviction.”

“I can’t breathe!”

After the police shot and killed Alex Andrich, on June 12, a police spokesman offered this explanation: Mr. Andrich had advanced on an officer while holding an “object” that the officer “believed was a threat.” It turned out to be the handcuffs that officers had just affixed to one of his wrists.

After an officer shot Edward Brown, leaving him a paraplegic, the police said it was self-defense: Mr. Brown had charged at an officer and tried to get his gun, even touching the barrel. But none of Mr. Brown’s D.N.A. was found on the weapon, and he had been shot in the back.

After Mohammed Muyhamin, a schizophrenic 43-year-old, died during an arrest, the police told local news outlets that he had “assaulted” an employee at a community center where he had sought to use the bathroom. But the 128-page police report obtained by The Times described an argument over whether Mr. Muyhamin could bring his small service dog inside without a leash.

The assault described in the report was an allegation that he had “pushed past” the employee because he needed to get to the restroom.

David Chami, a lawyer for Mr. Muhaymin’s estate and eldest son, said at least one officer on the scene had previously interacted with his client and knew he had mental health problems. Officers decided to take him in on an existing warrant for drug paraphernalia, he said, forcing him to the ground as he resisted and struggled.

“I can’t breathe!” Mr. Muhaymin, whose post-mortem showed he was on methamphetamines, screamed. A witness cited in the medical examiner report said that one of the officers replied: “Then stop resisting.”

The medical examiner ruled his death a homicide.

In each of these cases, the police offered selective or misleading accounts of what happened.

In the Andrich case, they say they were called for trespassing and then had a “knock-down, drag-out fight,” getting one handcuff on Mr. Andrich before he broke free, injuring an officer’s knee. They tried and failed to subdue him with a Taser, they said. Minutes later, they shot him as he advanced on an officer, according to the police account.

But in a bystander’s video, Mr. Andrich can be seen walking away, briefly turning to face the officer, then seeming to turn back away when he was shot. And while the police said the officer had stepped back before he fired, the video shows him following Mr. Andrich down the sidewalk.

Louise Andrich, Mr. Andrich’s sister, said that the police were aware he had schizophrenia and that her brother had not been violent in previous interactions with officers.

“I know exactly what my brother was saying — he was saying ‘leave me alone,’” Ms. Andrich said. The police version, she added, “did not fit the narrative of who he was as a human being, but it fit the narrative they needed to tell to make it seem legitimate.”

“We have a more violent population.”

As controversy over the shootings heated up this summer with protests at City Hall, the police said they were the ones under attack. Assaults against officers had jumped 45 percent during the first five months of the year, they said, and they were the largest contributing factor in officer-involved shootings.

Community groups say, though, that the police use aggravated assault charges to deflect attention from their own conduct. Under the law, any assault on an officer is automatically considered aggravated. An assault charge does not require physical contact — intentionally giving someone “reasonable apprehension of imminent physical injury” is enough.

“All the officer has to say is, ‘I thought you were going to hurt me,’” said Heather Hamel, a civil rights lawyer representing Mr. Zepeda, the blind man. “That is how you twist the narrative. Every time there is a case of police brutality and the person lives, they’re going to get hit with an aggravated assault charge.”

Mr. Brown, the man the police shot in the back, was also charged with aggravated assault on an officer.

Some politicians have taken up the Police Department’s argument. “When people get stopped, they think it is O.K. to approach the officer in a threatening way,” City Councilman Sal DiCiccio said at a hearing in June. “Of course they’re going to get shot at that point.”

In an interview, Mr. DiCiccio faulted the city for not hiring enough police. “We have a more violent population,” he said.

By the numbers, Phoenix is about as dangerous as a typical large American city. At 7.6 violent crimes per thousand residents, Phoenix’s violent crime rate was the same as the aggregate for cities with populations over 250,000, and slightly higher than that for cities with over a million, according to F.B.I. data for 2017.

A police spokeswoman said the department did not intentionally withhold public information, but that processing requests could take time. The city does not post data on civilian complaints.

One Phoenix police officer has been shot this year. He was wounded during a traffic stop in August.

At the behest of Chief Williams, city officials have hired the National Police Foundation, a nonprofit research firm, to study the problem. The move displeased police union officials, who said it amounted to placating activists by second-guessing officers who have done nothing wrong.

“One little word: compliance”

When the Phoenix police chief Daniel Garcia was fired in 2014, he blamed two police unions that had each called for a vote of “no confidence” in him.

“Our city management needs to decide whether the Police Department is to be run by the unions, or by the police chief,” Mr. Garcia said at a news conference that led to his firing.

Mr. Garcia complained that the city’s review board, whose members are appointed by the City Council, sometimes sided with officers who committed crimes or used excessive force.

Out of 41 cases appealed since 2014, discipline imposed by the Police Department was reduced or overturned in 27 cases, either by the review board or through settlements with the city’s own lawyers.

In 2015, the board reinstated Officer Kevin McGowan, who had been fired for stomping on the neck of an 18-year-old as he was lowering himself to the ground to surrender. The attack, which was caught on a surveillance video, knocked out three of the man’s teeth.

Last year, Officer McGowan was one of 10 officers at the fatal arrest of Mr. Muhaymin. Sgt. Mercedes Fortune, the police spokeswoman, said that Officer McGowan “was not involved in the initial contact or takedown” of Mr. Muhaymin, but that he “assisted by applying the leg restraint after the suspect was on the ground and in handcuffs.”

She did not respond to other questions about Mr. Muhaymin’s arrest and death.

Ken Crane, the president of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, the main police union, said that officers were not the problem in Phoenix. People should submit to police commands, he said: “We all go home safe if everybody remembers this one little word: compliance.”

Asked why there were so many more police shootings than in other large cities, Mr. Crane said Phoenix has “a lot more people that want to pull guns and knives on the cops.”

The evidence? The number of times, he said, that officers have had to shoot at someone.
