Texas Sheriff Calls Out CPS After Foster Dad who Took in 180 Girls is Accused of Sex Abuse

Monday, October 16th, 2017

A Texas sheriff is speaking out against the Child Protective Services after a foster dad who took in 180 young girls was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting at least five of them.
Medina County Sheriff Randy Brown said placing the children in the foster home wasn’t about their safety.
It was about profit.
“I’m aggravated at the whole system,” Brown said.
“I’m aggravated at the company that placed these girls. It was a money-making deal, the way they were running those girls through there like livestock. It wasn’t about making a better world for them. They were making a profit off them.”
 Deputies arrested 58-year-old Miguel Briseno, who had two foster homes between 2005 to 2013, on five counts of sexual assault of a child Thursday after several girls came forward.
“He would have up to 10, 11, 12 girls there at one time that were staying there,” Sheriff Brown said.
“So it was a house full of girls.”
“Those girls were taken from some environment, and then you have some jackass like him [Briseno] abusing these girls that already have troubles,” Brown told the San Antonio Express this week.
A sixth girl also came forward with allegations since the story broke but he has not yet been charged yet in that case.
This isn’t the first time Brown and his investigators looked into Briseno’s history.
In 2013, a 15-year-old girl who lived with him came forward claiming Briseno asked her to have sex with him.
Deputies interviews eight girls between the ages 14 to 16 living in his home at the time, but none claimed abuse.
Briseno faced a felony soliciting of a minor charge, but the Medina County Attorney’s Office reduced the charge to a misdemeanor after the teen ran away shortly before his trial started.
He received six months probation and no jail time after pleading guilty.
Investigators have since interviewed

Good Cop who didn’t Shoot Suicidal Man with Unloaded Gun Sues West Virginia City for Firing him Over it

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

A good cop who decided to negotiate with a suicidal man with an unloaded gun instead of killing him filed a lawsuit against the West Virginia city that fired him over it.
The Weirton police officers who did shoot and kill the suicidal man kept their jobs.
According to the suit, officer Ryan Kuzma, who fired the fatal shot that killed 21-year-old Ronald William, sent text messages to the fired officer, Stephen Mader, calling him a “coward” who “didn’t have the balls to save his own life.”
Kuzma added Mader and his mother were “loud mouth pieces of shit” who would get an officer killed – although it appears Mader, a Marine veteran who served in Afghanistan, is anything but a coward.
Stephen Mader was fired for not shooting a man holding an unloaded gun.
After Kuzma fatally shot Williams in the head, it was determined the silver pistol he was holding was not loaded.
Nevertheless,, the Weirton Police Department called Mader a “bad cop” and a “disgruntled” employee” who “froze” during the incident.
It happened on May 6, 2016 after police received a call from Williams’ girlfriend about a domestic dispute.
“The call came in around 2:50 in the morning,” Mader said.
“The whole thing was over by 3:02(a.m.).”
“When he brought his hands from behind his back, he had a silver pistol in his right hand,” Mader recalled.
“I drew my duty weapon and I’m telling him, ‘Put the gun down, put the gun down.’”
“Just shoot me,” Williams told Mader after brandishing an unloaded pistol on him, according to the Huffington Post.
Unaware the silver pistol Williams was holding in his hand wasn’t loaded, Mader observed Williams didn’t appear angry and seemed more depressed.
With his gun drawn on Williams, Mader didn’t view him as an immediate threat,  so he worked to deescalate the situation.
“Saying the words ‘Just shoot me’ sent

WATCH: Texas Deputy Respects PINAC Reporter’s Right to Record Naval Base Because it’s not Against the Law

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

A Texas deputy responding to call of suspicious activity about a PINAC reporter recording outside a military base not only ended up respecting his right to record the base from public, but his right to remain anonymous.
However, Kleberg County sheriff’s deputy E. Gonzalez acknowledged his agency’s policy is to identify all “suspicious” people, even though he made an exception to David Worden after contacting his supervisor.
But recording military bases from public areas is not against the law, even though we reported about a man getting arrested for doing just that last month.
 
Kleberg Sheriff Deputy E. Gonzalez attempts to explain to PINAC correspondent he’s required to identify him because of his department’s protocol.
Worden, an Army vet, recently spent four days on the road conducting First Amendments audits traveling through the Rio Grande Valley hitting Brownsville, Harlingen, McAllen, Kingsville and Corpus Christi before arriving at the Naval Air Station Kingsville earlier this week.
As Deputy Gonzalez approached, Worden joked, “you scared me. I thought you were one of those Navy idiots.”
“Oh, no, man. The reason we’re out here is because they called. They said you were out here, I don’t know, walking around. But I saw you earlier. You were in front of our office in font of the KPD’s office.”
“Yep, and now I’m headed to the border patrol,” Worden told the deputy.
“Is this for like a documentary or something?”
“Nope.”
“Just video taping?”
“Yep.”
“You from around here”
“Nope.”
“You’re not from around here?”
“No, tourist.”
“Do you mind if I ask where you’re from?”
“Houston,” Worden says, after a brief pause.
“Do you have an ID on you, man?”
“I do, but have I done something wrong?”
“Not that you’re anything wrong, like I said, it’s just that they’re reporting you. So it’s just suspicious activity. Every time we get called out it’s just protocol we get everybody’s either ID or license plate number. You don’t

Illinois Cop Admits War on Cops is a Myth, Angering Fellow Cops who Believe they are at War with the People

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Using logic, statistics and his experience from working 19 years as a police officer in the Chicago-area, Louis Hayes penned an article last month that is ruffling the feathers of his Brothers in Blue by proclaiming there is no such thing as the War on Cops.
We already knew that thanks to Radley Balko who keeps reminding us, but cops are a different breed who don’t believe a word anybody says unless it is to praise them for their heroic deeds and dangerous duties.
Hayes is a rarity of a cop who is able to lay out his argument in writing without having to use ALL CAPS or create fictionalized tales about being in fear for his life.
Hayes published his article last month in Quartz, an online news site founded in 2012 that states the following on its about page:
We publish bracingly creative and intelligent journalism with a broad worldview, built primarily for the devices closest at hand: tablets and mobile phones.
google_ad_client = “ca-pub-8719239441051793”;
google_ad_slot = “3606839893”;
google_ad_width = 300;
google_ad_height = 600;

And Hayes’ article definitely falls under the intelligent journalism spectrum by confirming what we’ve been saying for years; that if there is any war, it is a Police War on the People because they are trained to view each and every one of us as enemy combatants.
Or as he explains it in his article:
American police training is a complex venture. In a time-compressed format, the police training takes Joe Citizen and turns him into Joe Cop. His trainers debrief incidents when officers are injured or killed. Joe watches countless dash-cam videos of police officers being murdered in front of their patrol cars. He learns to be skeptical of everyone. Joe participates in scenario drills in which old ladies and young kids ambush him. He is taught to expect the worst
