Friday, December 22nd, 2017
A New Orleans police officer got his job back earlier today after he was fired in 2014 for shooting at a suspect that supposedly had a gun during a high speed chase.
The investigation revealed that the suspect did not have a gun and was actually attempting to flee from the officer, but the New Orlean’s  Civil Service Commission cited a lack of evidence to support the officer’s firing, reports WWL.
The officer’s attorney Kevin Boshea said his client was eager to return to police work.
Isaiah Shannon was a six-year veteran officer with the New Orlean’s Police Department when in 2013 he encountered a Chevrolet

WATCH: Minneapolis Cop Charged for Kicking Man in Face and Lying About It

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

These days it is not uncommon for cops to get arrested for assault.
But Officer Christopher Reiter, 36, of the Minneapolis Police Department took things way too far when he kicked Mohamed Osman while he was already down on the ground.
Osman suffered severe brain injuries, brain bleeding and ended up with fractures in his face, including sinus fractures in his nose.
Because of the injuries, Osman is unable to work.
The on-duty assault occurred in Spring 2016, but Reiter was not arrested until March 15, 2017 after he and fellow officers lied about what had taken place that night – only for

Newly Released Surveillance Video Challenges Police Narrative in Michael Brown Shooting Death

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Stranger Fruit, a damning documentary recounting the events that led to protests and rioting in Ferguson in 2014 over the shooting death of Michael Brown, spurred more protests in the Missouri city Sunday after unseen surveillance footage in the film reveals Brown had entered a convenience store the night before he was killed and made some kind of exchange with the clerks.
The filmmakers suggest that Brown exchanged a small bag of marijuana for two boxes of cigarillos.
But police have long maintained that Brown stole the boxes of cigarillos the morning he was killed, basing their allegations on a surveillance

Michigan Sheriff Backs Staff who Forced Woman to Give Birth on Dirty Jail Floor

Monday, February 13th, 2017
A Michigan sheriff is defending a county jail’s decision to withhold treatment from a woman who gave birth in a jail after staff members refused to believe she was going into labor.
A lawmaker is now urging state investigators to look at the case, the same jail previously probed by federal investigators for the deaths of two inmates refused hospitalization in the past four years.
Jessica Preston was pulled over in March last year for a rosary hanging from her rear view mirror that police claimed obstructed her view of the mirror. After police discovered her license was suspended, she was

Chicago Pays $3 Million Settlement for Police Shooting Death of Teen Holding iPhone Case Mistaken for Gun

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Chicago will pay a $3 million settlement to the family of a teenager shot and killed while fleeing police on a busy street, claiming he had a black object in his hand that made them fear for their lives.
The black object turned out to be an iPhone case.
And surveillance cameras do not show Cedric Chatman, 17, pointing the object at officers as he fled as police initially reported, although the videos are grainy.
Nevertheless, Chicago police office Kevin Fry was found to have been justified in the shooting. But only after an investigator from the city’s  Independent Police Review Authority

REHIRED: Minnesota Deputy Convicted Of Drunkenly Beating K9 Partner After Groping Casino Patrons

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016
A Minnesota sheriff’s deputy who was convicted of animal cruelty on his own K9 service dog in a video recorded beating has been rehired by the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office.
The Law Enforcement Labor Services police union fought to keep the convicted criminal cop Brett Barry on public payrolls.
State arbitrator Gil Vernon decided that the deputy will be forgiven for his rampage, even though it was a drunken frenzy that would land any regular citizen in jail for assaulting a police officer – his K9 partner.
Ironically, Barry will now be paid to guard Ramsey County’s detention unit, instead of spending time behind its bars to repay society

WATCH: LAPD Releases Video Footage from Carnell Snell Police Shooting Showing him Holding Gun

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016
Los Angeles police released surveillance video from the moments before they shot and killed an 18-year-old man Saturday, showing him wielding a gun.
However, the video does not capture the actual shooting of Carnell Snell, Jr., one of four police shooting deaths in Southern California within a week that sparked protests.
And the word on the street is that Snell ditched the gun as he was being chased.
But LAPD said he turned towards them with the gun in his hand, making them fear for  their lives. And that the gun was found less than five feet from his body.
Whether that’s true or

Cleveland Police Justified in Killing 12-Year-Old Tamir Rice, Reports State

Sunday, October 11th, 2015
A rookie cop with a documented history of emotional instability and firearm incompetency was justified in shooting and killing Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy who had been playing with a pellet gun in a playground near his Cleveland home last year.
That is the opinion of so-called “experts” who were asked by the Cuyahoga County District Attorney’s Office to “investigate” the shooting that was captured on surveillance video and showed a pair of Cleveland cops driving up to the boy with one of the officers hopping out of the passengers seat and opening fire.
Cleveland police officer Timothy Loehmann later claimed that

Florida Cops Arrest Woman for Recording, Refusing to Return Her Phone, Claiming They Never Had It

Friday, October 9th, 2015
Jacksonville sheriff’s officers arrested a woman who was video recording them while standing in front of a convenience store, confiscating her phone and refusing to give it back, even after she was released from jail – claiming they never had it in their possession.
But they probably were not expecting her attorney to obtain a surveillance video of the arrest, showing officers pouncing on her, even though she was not physically interfering.
However, that is exactly what they accused her of doing when they arrested her last summer.
On July 15, 2015, Kelli Wilson, 28, had pulled up to a convenience store

Louisiana Cops Shoot Man in Back, then Confiscate Video Witness Says Contradicts Police Version

Thursday, October 8th, 2015
In the early evening hours of September 12, Tevin Lewis and Robert Stewart were standing outside of a home on Sonny Street with several other men in the Best Subdivision in North Lafayette.
Witnesses to the incident say police rolled up on the two and jumped out of their patrol units with guns drawn.  Lewis began running and police, who were serving an arrest warrant on Stewart, gave chase.
Lewis is said to have ran through several back yards and jumped at least one fence before police opened fire on the fleeing man and shot him in the back.  They said he had

New Hampshire Cop Caught Slamming Teenager’s Face into Wall Given Special “Capped” Deal

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015
Mark Richardson was caught on video slamming a nineteen-year-old Michael Bergeron’s face into a wall.
While most people would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for such a brutal act, jailed for at least a year, Richardson luckily had a get-out-of-jail-free card.
He was a Seabrook police officer, after all.
That enabled the New Hampshire cop to receive a “capped” sentence, meaning he will only serve 21 days in jail instead of the maximum five years he was facing.
And he may not even have to serve the 21 days. That will be determined during his sentencing November 12.
The incident took place

Angry that his son had been stabbed in a fight, an off-duty New Jersey cop grabbed his gun and began confronting random people on the street, including one man whom he ordered to the ground at gunpoint, slapping and kicking him in the process.
He then confronts another man at gunpoint, ordering him down on the curb as a crowd of people urge him to calm down and put the gun away.
“Who is it? Is it him or the other one?” the off-duty Paterson police officer demanded, still wielding the gun.
The cop then started chasing a man down the street
