Las Vegas Cop Sexually Assaults Family Member then goes on SWAT Standoff with Police

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

What happens in Vegas is not staying in Vegas for this story, because a Las Vegas cop sexually assaulted his family member for years.
And the officer barricaded himself in his own home once he found out police were on the way to arrest him– prompting an hours long standoff.
Officer Bret Theil, 38, of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was arrested on Thursday morning after he barricaded himself at his house to avoid being arrested for sexually abusing a member of his family from August 2005 to January 2017.  The victim was just 7 years old when the abuse began.
Thiel was tasked with guarding the door of gunman Stephen Paddock’s hotel room during the October 2017 Las Vegas shooting massacre at the  Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
Theil earns a whopping 6-figure salary of $150,000 annually. But that figure will soon be $0 as Theil is expected to be fired.
On Wednesday February 7, 2018 Theil was at his Corn Creek Canyon area home when he got a call from his job that he had been indicted by a grand jury on several charges related to sexual assault of one of his minor family members. Thiel agreed to turn himself in, but never did.
Instead Thiel  sent a threatening email to his victim and then barricaded himself within his home claiming he was suicidal, reports Las Vegas Now.
So Las Vegas police arrived at Thiel’s home to apprehend him around 6pm. The SWAT team was even dispatched to try to extract Theil from the home. But he was not coming out easily as he stayed barricaded for 11 hours.
It was not until 5am the next morning that Thiel finally surrendered and accepted his fate.
Details about Theil’s charges have not been released yet because of the ongoing investigation.

Seattle ICE Immigration Attorney Arrested for Stealing Immigrants Identities

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

Chief Counsel Raphael Sanchez for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in Seattle was arrested for stealing immigrants’ identities and then paying his bills with the stolen information.
Sanchez resigned on Monday and had his first court appearance on Thursday.
Sanchez devised a scheme to use immigrants’ identities in order to defraud financial institutions including American Express, Bank of America Citibank, Discover, and JPMorgan Chase, according to a charging document, which was entered in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.
Sanchez stole the identities of seven people in various stages of immigration proceedings to defraud credit card companies.
Prosecutors with the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section investigated the incident. The Public Integrity Section pursues efforts to combat corruption by public officials.
In or around October 2013 to October 2017 Sanchez stole and used the identifies of seven immigrants for his own financial benefit.
The charging document contained few specifics about the allegations, but did give one example: It said that in April 2016 Sanchez stole the name, Social Security number and birth date of a Chinese national.
Sanchez then sent an email from his government account to his Yahoo account that included personal information pertaining to the Chinese national identified only as R.H. The information Sanchez sent included an image of R.H.’s U.S. permanent resident card, the biographical page of R.H.’s Chinese passport and a utility bill in R.H.’s name from Puget Sound Energy.
Sanchez is charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft, both are felonies.
ICE in Seattle has been at the forefront of illegal immigration. They arrested dozens of undocumented immigrants in September’s Operation Safe City, which was a four-day effort in which the administration targeted “sanctuary cities” around the country, including Seattle, where local officials do not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.

WATCH: PINAC Correspondent Kicked Out of Free Speech Rally in Oregon

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

PINAC correspondent Mike Smith attended a free speech rally in Portland only to be physically thrown out by police.
Smith was at the Patriot Prayer rally at the waterfront last Sunday, which is a popular place in the Oregon city for events and protests. There were several other groups counterprotesting the Patriot Prayer group which is why police were there to keep the peace.
The police sectioned off an area for media personnel in the middle of the protests but when Smith attempted to enter the media area, cops told him he wasn’t allowed because he was a counterprotester. Smith repeatedly told the cops that he was on assignment as a correspondent with PINAC News and not a counterprotester.
Police kept Smith from covering footage as seen in picture.
Smith even showed the cops his PINAC issued press pass, but they still assumed that he was a counterprotester at the rally to start trouble.
It was then that Sergeant Mirau told Smith that he could enter the press area on the other side of the gate, as seen in the video.
Smith walks all the way to the other side of the media entrance area and crossed the yellow line for media only to be told by a different set of officers that he still was not allowed in the media area.
And this time officers even threatened to arrest Smith.
Smith tried getting the name and badge numbers of the officers but then other officers came to physically remove Smith from the general protest area.
Meanwhile, the corporate media reporters who were allowed to enter the area were photographing the altercation but it does not appear as if they were published.

Other angles from the protest show officers throwing tear gas canisters at videographers.
Smith had this to say concerning the incident:
“I believe the Portland police trampled on my rights. I

New Mexico Couple Awarded $1.6 Million in Police Abuse Case

Friday, February 17th, 2017

The New Mexico cops did not appreciate Jillian Beck walking away from them after they responded to a neighborhood dispute, prompting an officer to grab her arm, twist it behind her back and slam her to the ground, leaving her with a fractured arm as he planted his knee on her back.
When the woman lifted her head to console her four-year-old son who began crying, the Las Cruces police officer slammed her face on a bed of rocks, leaving her with a broken nose and a bruised and bloodied face.
When her husband became alarmed, thinking his wife was choking on her own blood, he walked up to help her, but he was also arrested.
Las Cruces police officer Isaiah Baker then turned to a female officer and bragged about his deeds, telling her that Jillian Beck “got thrown” and ended up with a “face full of rocks.”
“Cool,” the female officer responded, according to an audio clip that was heard during a civil trial last week.
After a five-day trial and three-hour deliberation, a jury awarded the couple $1.6 million.
The federal jury ruled that Las Cruces police officers Isaiah Baker and Joseph Campa used unreasonably excessive force and violated the couples Fourth Amendment right.
The incident took place in January 2013 after Jillian Beck called police to report a disturbance with neighbors around 10 p.m., according to the Las Cruces Sun-News.
Beck’s neighbors were blowing loud air horns at dogs that wouldn’t stop barking. In retaliation, Beck threw salmon and onions on her neighbor’s vehicle along with a mean note. Officers arrived on scene and warned Beck to stop. Then they left.
Angered, her neighbors then turned around and called police back to the scene around midnight proclaiming that the Becks left another threatening note at their door.
Officers Baker, Campa and Manuel Chavez responded to the scene and questioned

GRAPHIC: Idaho Cop Murders Dog In Own Yard, Demands Cash from Owner for Remains

Friday, September 16th, 2016

An Idaho cop murdered a dog in its own front yard while serving an arrest warrant on a compliant citizen after officers took advantage of a door left ajar.
The arrest warrant turned into a death warrant for the beloved family pet named Targaryan.
Now Caldwell police are threatening to charge an innocent woman with “having a vicious animal at large.”
And they sent her a $200 bill before they’ll release the remains of her deceased beloved pet dog.
But the body camera videos released today show a very different story.
google_ad_client = “ca-pub-8719239441051793”;
google_ad_slot = “3606839893”;
google_ad_width = 300;
google_ad_height = 600;

After the August 18 incident, Caldwell police told the local news that the dog “lunged” at the officers but the video reveals an officer who is apparently afraid of dogs who fires his gun after his partner seemed to have no issues with the mixed-breed 85-pound dog who barked but did not charge or lunge.
Alinah Stelly’s sister was wanted on a warrant and the Caldwell Police knocked on her door to serve it, but they didn’t alert the young woman who was drying her hair with a maroon towel as she casually chatted with them for a few seconds to the real reason for visiting her townhouse.
They had an arrest warrant for Stelly’s 31-year-old sister on a probation violation.
“I’m looking for Crystal, Crystal Holden,” said the Idaho cop.
It was a subterfuge on the part of the officer, but one that they are legally allowed to use when serving an arrest warrant.
“What is this for?” asked Stelly.
“I’ve just got to talk with her… for some follow up,” replied the Caldwell police officer.
The 20-year-old Stelly dutifully went upstairs to get her sister, and accidentally left her front door slightly ajar
That’s when the Caldwell police officer quite literally crossed the line from acceptable to probably unconstitutional policing.
He crossed the threshold of Alinah Stelly’s private residence

New Mexico Cops Settle “Fuck” Lawsuit for $25,000, Taxpayers Will Pay

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

New Mexico cops falsely arrested a grown adult citizen in public for saying “fuck”, now Farmington taxpayers agreed to pay $25,000 to settle the resulting censorship lawsuit under the 1st Amendment.
Three Farmington officers grossly overstepped their boundaries acting as censors, when they arrested Trujillo for violating the local Disorderly Conduct ordinance, in the absence of any provoked parties when he said “fuck” in an IHOP restaurant.
In fact, the family with small children whom police claimed to be protecting refused to give their names or in any way become involved in the three officers’ false arrest “to ensure the obscene language didn’t continue.”
Without threat of a fight or injury, there’s no probable cause for a Disorderly Conduct arrest which is commonly called a “contempt of cop” charge for its frequent use by police in punishing citizens for disagreement, with false arrest.
The police were disorderly in this case, starting a fight that’s gone on in courts for years.
New Mexico’s state constitution also has extra safeguards against this type of law enforcement overreach, as Trujillo’s counsel pointed out in his lawsuit against the a City of Farmington for arresting the man who said “fuck”, as you can see below.
Source: Twitter
Unfortunately, the town of Farmington’s Police Chief Hebbe doesn’t seem to give even one flying fuck about the un-American actions of his cops, since the settlement doesn’t admit guilt.
Local news outlet KOB reported:
“In the course of a conversation that’s one thing, but in the course of loud, boisterous or intoxicated language in a restaurant with children and families around who are objecting to it – that is something different,” said Farmington Police Chief Steve Hebbe.
You can’t say it on TV or radio, but can you say it loudly in a restaurant with in ear shot of small children?
“It certainly depends on the circumstances,” says Hebbe. “In this

San Diego Cop Holds Photojournalist at Gunpoint, Accusing Him of “Trespassing on County Property”

Monday, September 21st, 2015

With two hands on his gun, a San Diego police officer confronted photojournalist JC Playford as he was conducting a video interview outside the main sheriff headquarters, accusing him of “trespassing on county property” Friday afternoon.
Playford had been interviewing another photojournalist, Gerry Nance, who had been shoved to the ground by a San Diego sheriff’s deputy last Wednesday while attempting to cover a stand-off situation involving a man barricaded inside an apartment with a gun.
Nance was planning on entering San Diego sheriff headquarters to file a complaint against the deputy, who not only shoved him, but later arrested him on Penal Code 148, the state’s resisting and obstruction charge, which is routinely used in contempt-of-cop cases.
But because Playford was carrying a tripod in a rifle case as he was conducting his interview, somebody from the sheriff’s office called police.
The video, posted below, includes footage from both Playford and Nance’s cameras as well as audio clips from Nance’s recorder from the night he was shoved and arrested.
It begins with Playford interviewing Nance about the incident until sirens can be heard in the background, which was when Nance lifts his own camera to begin recording Playford.
“Something going on?” Playford asks as a police car pulls up behind him, his camera pointing at Nance.
“Yeah, you’re the star of the show,” Nance responds, capturing the surreal scene on his own camera.
Playford turns around and acknowledges the cop, but then turns to face Nance again to continue his interview.
But the cop walks up with his gun drawn, ordering Playford to remove his hand from the bag. A potentially deadly situation considering this is the same agency that recently killed a man for holding a pen.

As more cops and deputies move in to handcuff and frisk him, Playford accuses them of violating his Constitutional rights.
The original cop
