Arizona Man Sues Prosecutor for Wrongful Arrest that Kept him in Jail for Two Months

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Imagine spending two months in jail for a robbery that you didn’t commit. Well, that is exactly what happened to an Iowa man after he was falsely charged with first-degree robbery.
Now he is suing the prosecutor that threw him in jail.
Joseph McBride, 23, was arrested for his assumed role in a January 2017 home invasion robbery in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
McBride was in Phoenix at the time of his August 2017 arrest, several months after the original crime was committed.
And he showed authorities a time-stamped cell phone selfie proving he was in Arizona at the time of the Iowa home invasion, but they remained steadfast that they had the right guy.
MeBride is from Cedar Rapids but he moved to Phoenix in November 2015.
He was one of three people arrested for the crime.
Linn County Attorney Jerry Vander Sanden is the prosecutor that brought charges on McBride. Sanden alleged in court documents that social media posts and phone records suggested that McBride was involved in the home invasion robbery.
Sanden says the charge was based on a, “good-faith belief that the victim was correct in the identification.”
But as it turns out, the only evidence Sanden and police relied on was the victim pointing to a facebook photo of McBride, claiming he was involved in the crime.
The victim, identified as 27-year-old Tristan Hermann, told police that an acquaintance he knew as Elizabeth came to his apartment. Two men then forced their way in Hermann’s apartment, beating him with a handgun, and stealing his money and cellphone.
Hermann identified the woman as 22-year-old Elizabeth Navarro and said she set him up.
Hermann, who is bipolar, told police days later that he “had done his own investigation” and concluded the men involved were Navarro’s boyfriend, Austin Foster, and a man with the Facebook name “Jody Holliday.”
Police used photos and

WATCH: Off-Duty Texas Cop Slams Woman Over Parking Spot; Charges Dismissed

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

A Harris County sheriff’s deputy was arrested for assaulting a woman in a club parking lot in Houston.
Now the charges have been dropped by the district attorney.  The deputy in question has been identified as 29-year-old Brian Jones, reports ABC 13.
On last Sunday night Jones was at the The Live Oak Bar partying. The off-duty plainclothes Jones was standing in a parking spot with a woman dressed in white. Apparently Jones was holding the parking spot for a friend and as his friend attempted to park in the spot, the woman in white tried to block the vehicle from getting in.
It was then that Jones pushed the lady and then a brawl ensued.
Jones pushes the woman around and slams her to the ground several times. Jones even throws a few punches.
A Houston police officer was patrolling in the parking lot and rushed to arrest Jones immediately. Jones was pictured sitting in the back of the police car.
But Jones says that the woman hit him with a cell phone and knocked off his glasses. Jones was charged with misdemeanor assault, but on Tuesday all of Jones’s charges were dropped by the district attorney.
The video is below.

WATCH: North Carolina Cop Places Gun to Unarmed Man’s Head, Threatening to Kill Him

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

“Is your shit on? Cut it off,” said a North Carolina cop after he and several other cops roughed up a man.
Body cam footage released this week shows Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers punching and elbowing James Yarborough during an arrest while Yarborough was on the ground.
One of the officers then puts a gun to Yarborough’s head and says, “I will kill you.”
Thankfully, that officer did not make good on his promise, but he later noted in his report that he feared for his life because Yarborough was reaching for his waist.
Although the incident occurred in March 2016, the internal affairs department just cleared the case finding that all officers involved acted appropriately.
According to WBTV, police made a traffic stop on a truck Yarborough was the passenger in because the truck was involved in several larcenies. Yarborough casually exited the truck and then took off from police on foot.
The driver of the truck had a pistol laying in the truck, Yarborough being a convicted felon didn’t want to be hit with gun charges, so that is why he ran, he told WBTV News.
After a brief foot chase, an officer tackles Yarborough and a struggle ensues. That is when Officer Jon Dunham puts a gun to Yarborough’s head and says, “I will kill you, you understand? Give me your hand, now!” Yarborough continued to resist the four officers that were on top of him.
After an officer tasers Yarborough, he appears to be a bit more compliant, but the officers involved begin to hit and elbow him repeatedly until they get him handcuffed.
This is how Dunham described the incident in his report:
“At this point I observed him shove his hand towards his waistband. He was completely uncooperative,  I believed he was reaching for a gun in an attempt to seriously hurt me or Officer Michaels; knowing that suspects are known

California Men who Spent Seven Months in Jail for Rap Lyrics and Facebook Photos File Lawsuit

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Two California men who spent seven months in jail for conspiracy to commit murder based on rap lyrics and Facebook photos that made no reference to actual murders filed a lawsuit against the San Diego Police Department Tuesday.
Police based their arrests on allegations that Brandon Duncan and Aaron Harvey were Facebook friends with suspected gang members they grew up with, using an obscure law that does not ever appear to have been used in California before the 2014 arrests.
But there was no evidence that either committed any murders or were actual gang members.
Duncan, 35, was an aspiring rapper who went by the moniker “Tiny Doo,” but who was making a living laying tile when he was arrested at his San Diego home, which police searched without a warrant, later informing him he was arrested over the contents of his music lyrics.
Harvey, 28, was studying to become a real estate agent when he was arrested by federal marshals in Las Vegas, who informed him he was wanted for a string of murders, which he knew he did not commit.
He later learned that San Diego police detectives Rudy Castro and Scott Henderson were only basing that belief on Facebook photos showing him posing with suspected gang members he grew up with in San Diego’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Both men spent seven months in the George Bailey Detention Center, known as “Thunderdome” and “Gladiator School” because of its reputation for violence.
A judge threw out the case in 2015 on lack of evidence, allowing the men to proceed with the federal lawsuit, which you can read here.
The law police arrested them on is Penal Code 182.5 which notes gang members with general knowledge of a gang’s criminal activities can be prosecuted for crimes others commit as long as they willfully benefited from, furthered, promoted or assisted in some way.
Duncan was

Stalking Away The First Amendment: Part 1

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

 
Homestead Police Department (HPD) has silenced the First Amendment with false stalking charges and restraining orders.
Their abuses leading to two of my three false arrest, and to me being served with four frivolous restraining orders.
Sadly, such abuses are not limited to Florida, and occur nationwide.
I have researched this new trick in the police playbook being used to stalk away the First Amendment.
PINAC presents this series as a case study on such stalking abuses in Florida and across the country.
Included are discussions on the federal subsidies which create disincentives to fixing the problem, and discussions on Florida stalking law related to the First Amendment and online activities.
The focus is on cops who violate the law, yet when exposed hide behind laws meant for the protection of battered and abused women.
COWARDS!
HPD’s actions inspired creation of the Coward of the Month award, with John Monaco being the first nominee.

Some may choose to skip over this section, but being a Christian I must oblige these officers with truth as they are lacking in knowledge.  
Generally, I leave the good Lord out of secular discussions, but HPD officers John Monaco (video above) and Alejandro Murguido (email) blasphemously invoke God.
They bear false witness against their neighbors, not just me, breaking laws as ancient the Decalogue.
Swearing oaths to be the keepers of the law, they do not keep it themselves, instead lording it over others.
I am just waiting for them to abuse scripture, while claiming a blessed status.
Like the Pharisees they lower their profession to one of revenge and tax collection for their temple (City Hall), simultaneously claiming hero status and victimhood.
Hypocrites, Ye Brood of Vipers!
This fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities.
I pray for them, while rebuking them, praying they would repent of their sin, turning back to God.
Regardless, their intimidation will never force me into quietly walking away while they continue unrepentant in their crimes against humanity.
