Unfortunately, over the years, PBWW channel has reported on several incidents people handcuffed back of a have managed to somehow get their hands on a gun somehow shoot themselves head. In 2018, Sarah Wilson allegedly grabbed a gun and shot herself head while handcuffed back of a .Victor White III, 22, was handcuffed back of a in Louisiana and also allegedly grabbed a gun and shot himself back of a .
Now, another investigation is underway as it's happened .
Authorities are now investigating the death of a 30-year-old woman in police custody whom officers say managed a gun while handcuffed back of a and kill herself.
The unnamed woman was being transported by police between two hospitals for a evaluation and would never make it to her destination.
It happened sheriff's cruiser was leaving Mary Washington Hospital early Monday morning, the Virginia State Police.
The shooting occurred city, but the Fredericksburg asked the state police .
According to state police Sgt. Brent Coffey, the Spotsylvania Sheriff's Office was asked the 30-year-old Spotsylvania woman from the hospital's crisis assessment center to Western State Hospital for evaluation.
The sergeant transporting told the Star in an email that "Had been combative at the hospital and with deputies" before she was secured back of the Ford Explorer.
Apparently, the official story of the police, she wasn't "Secured" back of the car and SUV pulled from the , he said, "The female fired one round from a handgun that was in her possession."
How, exactly crisis assessment center of a hospital, who was being transported by police hospital, managed a firearm while handcuffed and back of a , mystery.
Police released any details how obtained the gun she allegedly shoot herself head. One detail that police did release immediately is that clear that the officer didn't fire the gun.
"There evidence that either deputy riding front seat of the vehicle discharged a weapon at any time," the Spotsylvania spokesperson said, adding that neither deputy was injured.
Oddly enough, the two years who was custody of the Spotsylvania sheriff's office who managed a gun while handcuffed back of a and shoot themselves head. the Star, incident involving a county deputy happened two years ago, on Aug. 16, 2018, when handcuffed back seat of an SUV patrol vehicle got a gun from a compartment and shot himself head. At the time, the sheriff's office said , Christopher Howard, reached past the SUV's cage to open the compartment containing the gun and bullets.
While know details of this poor woman's death, PBWW channel has reported on incident a cop has actually shot and killed a handcuffed individual inside his .
As reported in January, Prince George's County reports that a driver had struck multiple vehicles.
When they arrived on the scene, they found , .
Temple Hills community, spokeswoman Christina Cotterman said the officers told her they believed was high on PCP because smell it.
While PCP does reportedly have an odor magic markers, police claiming that was high without first conducting a toxicology exam is irresponsible and deliberately misleading .
There are other details story that paints sketchy picture.
For starters, police were get handcuffed without incident.
We can deduce that without incident because officers claim they placed the Green front seat of the after they handcuffed him.
Officials told the media that normal for Prince George's County suspects front seats of their vehicles.
Based on the thousands of police stories PBWW Channel has reported over the years, that department policy suspects allegedly high on PCP to ride front seat of a - handcuffed or not - is unbelievable, as in, believe it.
PBWW channel has reported incidents of being arrested and asking to ride front seat to avoid embarrassment only to be denied by their arresting officers.
"A short time later, for reasons that are now in of the investigation, Green was shot seven times by the officer's duty weapon," police.
Cpl. Michael Owen Jr., a 10-year force veteran of the force was subsequently charged for murder.
According to new research on police murders in 2021 conducted by the people at PoliceViolenceReport.org, the majority of police killings occur in response to calls where no crime occurred or when the person is accused of committing a non-violent infraction.
"The majority of deaths occurred as a result of police reacting to non-violent acts or circumstances in which no crime was registered," the study adds.
Police have repeatedly shown their inability to deal with mental health concerns. Since 2015, police in the United States has murdered over 1,400 persons who were suffering from a mental health crisis. Many of these individuals had never been charged with a crime prior to police arrival. Fortunately, a video released this week by Cook County demonstrates that the training is having an effect. The manner in which police interfered in the video below was so professional and successful that the subject of the film — a police officer attempting suicide — actually requested that the department broadcast it to demonstrate how properly they handled the matter.
"Not every call is criminal in nature," Officer Ryan Huber, who filmed the footage on his bodycam, said. "At times, it's someone who is acting out or experiencing mental turmoil."
That is precisely what occurred last month when police responded to a report of a guy darting in front of oncoming vehicles and acting erratically while strolling down the street.
"Communications indicated that someone was standing in the centre of Mannheim road attempting to leapfrog traffic," Huber recounted. The guy was making suicide threats. "As he approached me, he continued repeating, 'Shoot me, shoot me, I just want to die.'"
In 9 out of 10 of these encounters, regular users of the PBWW channel website can guess what would happen next. All too often, police officers comply and murder the distressed individual. However, not this time.
Huber employed de-escalation and patience instead of force, shouting, and escalation, with the assistance of his colleague and an officer from another agency who assisted in directing traffic.
Huber told ABC 7 that his CIT training enabled him to engage the guy without escalating the situation — and it worked. All too often, police will encounter someone like the individual in the video below and begin shouting and cursing at them, demanding that they surrender to their power. This never works since the individual is not being reasonable at the moment, and the screaming exacerbates their mental crisis.
The guy swung dozens of times at cops, who might have used it as an excuse to intensify the violence, but did not. Due to the cops' decision not to engage in aggressive behaviour, the individual was not detained and instead received the medical assistance he need.
"Instead of being harmed by the police, he was able to seek assistance, emergency medical care, and psychological therapy for something," Huber added.
According to ABC 7, the entire Cook County Sheriff's Police Department has received critical intervention training over the last many years. Sheriff Tom Dart said that there has been an uptick in occurrences involving mental health.
"We're getting an increasing number of calls where that is the only reason we're there," he said. "We are here to assist you."
Now, if only we could get the other 700,000 cops in America to follow suit.
Walter Wallace Jr.'s police shooting murder, a Philadelphia man in a mental health crisis who attacked policemen with a knife, sparked widespread uproar in the city. PBWW reported on many incidents of police personnel being assaulted and withdrawn from protesters on the first night of turmoil. On the second night, however, it seemed as if the officers were the ones rioting, and an innocent woman and her baby were caught in the crossfire.
Several riot cops are seen swarming an SUV in a video shared on Twitter. They began breaking through all the windows on both sides for an inexplicable cause, with full disregard for anybody inside.
When the passenger's side door is opened, a 16-year-old kid is dragged from the car while cops continue to beat him with their batons. He is pushed to the ground and continues to be beaten by the officers. Rickia Young, the driver, is also dragged from the car and abused. Former officer Darren Kardos, 42, was a primary organiser of this mob assault on Young. Kardos was arrested this week as a result of an 18-month investigation into the cell phone footage of Young's assault. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer:
Kardos, a seven-year veteran of the 19th District, was dismissed last spring along with another officer after an internal inquiry decided he used excessive force, including physical assault with a baton. According to District Attorney Larry Krasner, the footage shows Kardos smashing in Young's vehicle windows and then pulling her out by her hair, "followed by her being hit by fists, batons, and a variety of unidentifiable things."
Additionally, Krasner said that Kardos "made assertions about the victim's activities that were not substantiated by video evidence."
It's eerily similar to the Rodney King beating, but worse since a kid was involved. In September, Philadelphia taxpayers were informed that they would be required to pay Young $2 million for what the officers did to her that night. On that fateful night, Young — who was unaware of the demonstrations — proceeded into a blocked-off roadway and attempted to turn around when a swarm of officers stormed her vehicle and started assaulting her. Young and her sixteen-year-old nephew were pulled from their vehicle and viciously assaulted. Young's two-year-old was napping in the back seat of his vehicle when he was awakened by the sound of cracking the glass.
April Rice caught the incident on camera, which rapidly went viral when Young and her nephew were left bruised and bloodied for no reason." Her face was bloodied, and she seemed to have been pummelling by a swarm of passersby," attorney Riley H. Ross III told The Washington Post. Following Young's abduction, police abducted her son and brazenly exploited him in a phoney PR tale on social media. Later that day, a photo of a female cop holding Young's son was posted on the National Fraternal Order of Police's Facebook page, along with claims that officers discovered Young's son "lost" and "wandering around barefoot," before asserting that officers are "the only thing standing between order and anarchy."
This was all a fabrication.
Ross III told The Post at the time, "It's propaganda." "Using this child to argue, 'This child was in danger and the police were simply there to rescue him,' when the cops were the ones who created the situation." That little child is afraid as a result of the police action." According to lawyers, Young was separated from her kid for hours until the boy's grandmother discovered him in a police vehicle miles away in Center City, with shattered glass in his car seat. This is hardly the sight that should reflect the ostensibly free country. This is a scene from a war-torn wasteland. The fact that police felt comfortable approaching the car and bashing out windows implies that they were not fearful of an armed person or the possibility of being driven over — nor were they concerned about responsibility. In other words, this big band of riot cops committed an act of physical assault against a family stuck in the mayhem and received practically no repercussions – until now.
"To my mind, the video clearly shows that more than two policemen who were fired were involved in the physical attack," Kevin Mincey, one of Young's lawyers, said. "I'm at a loss as to how those individuals were permitted to continue wearing the Philadelphia Police Department's uniform."
Innocent Elderly Woman Pulled Over for No Reason as Cops Steal Her Life Savings, Prescription Medicine and Mock Her
Jeanetta Jones, 62, had done no wrong, committed no crime, and was merely travelling home in December 2021 when she was targeted by cops from Jefferson County's infamously corrupt Brookside Police Department. By the conclusion of the hour-long halt, Jones would have lost her life savings, her medication would have been taken, and she would have been publicly humiliated by those claiming to safeguard society.
For decades, the federal government and its law enforcement collaborators have been committing vast thefts of the population via the use of civil asset forfeiture (CAF).
Although the 1980's legislation was intended to drain resources from major criminal groups, CAF has evolved into a weapon used by police enforcement agencies around the United States to take money and property from innocent individuals.
As seen in Jones' case, cunning police agencies would utilise this "tool" to prey on elderly, defenseless ladies in order to "legally" rob them on the side of the road. Meanwhile, these state operatives believe they are the good people.
Jones was driving home just after 2 p.m. on the day she was stopped when, according to her new complaint, authorities pulled her over for no reason. When Jones inquired as to why the cops pulled her over, they stated that they could pull over anybody they pleased.
In the following hour, cops would conduct a fishing trip in search of Jones's goods. Police discovered $5,000 in cash in Jones' car during an unlawful search-money she said was her life savings. Additionally, they would locate her prescribed medication.
Jones would be robbed of her life savings and the prescription medication she required for pain at the conclusion of the unlawful search and seizure. When she pleaded with the authorities for the restoration of her things, they mocked the old lady.
"She sought reimbursement for her funds and drugs," the complaint said. They also refused to return and mocked her, saying she could do anything they pleased.
When one examines the Brookside police department's history, the Jones case is just one of many, and their attitudes during her stop indicate just why.
According to AL.com, this is the 13th lawsuit brought against Brookside and its police force – or one for every 96 people in the teeny-tiny hamlet in north Jefferson County. It asserts that Jones was wrongfully detained and imprisoned and that her Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights were infringed. It demands redress. The culprits let her go after she was robbed on the highway, and she was not charged with a crime.
They did not provide her with a receipt. They made no arrests in connection with it. They just grabbed it, "Jones' attorney, Roger Appell, said. As they were departing with her money and prescription medication, she inquired as to why they were doing this to her. Why are you torturing me? And they glanced at her and answered, "Due to the fact that we can."
"That seemed to be nothing more than a shakedown," Jones said of the traffic encounter.
Jones attempted to reclaim her property for weeks, contacting the department, Brookside Mayor Mike Bryan, and former Chief Mike Jones. And, according to the complaint, her calls fell on deaf ears for weeks. After four months of being ignored, Jones filed a legal claim against the robbers.
The fact that the Brookside police department is famed for its corruption, and Jones' case is only one of many, exemplifies the issue inside the agency and town officials.
The Alabama Department of Examiners of Public Accounts published an audit of the town, its police department, and municipal court last week, as AL.com reported. That audit highlights a number of issues, including disorganized evidence storage, missing firearms, unexplained firearms, a garbage bag loaded with prescription medications, undocumented cash, and inappropriate accounting practices.
Devin Nolley made the bad choice in December 2018 to operate a stolen car and then flee from police when they attempted to apprehend him. Nolley should have been arrested and imprisoned for his conduct, and he should have fulfilled his sentence to society. None of it occurred, however, since two Georgia officers decided to act as judge, jury, and executioner. Rather than spending time for his crimes, Nolley is now a paraplegic – paralysed from the waist down — and Atlanta taxpayers will almost certainly foot the bill for his round-the-clock care.
The bright lining, in this case, is that the cops who tried to kill an unarmed fleeing man, East Point officers Rodney Etienne and Shiron Nicole Varner, were indicted earlier this month for their acts that tragic day. Authorities tried to apprehend Nolley after seeing him in a stolen black Nissan at a shopping centre, according to police. Rather than halt, Nolley left the retail mall as officers opened fire in a heavily crowded area in an effort to apprehend him.
According to the two cops, Nolley tried to run them over with his automobile. However, video evidence revealed after their conviction last month demonstrates that this was not the case.
"My client just reversed and went past them, and that is when they began firing at him at the Camp Creek Marketplace," Jackie Patterson, one of Nolley's lawyers, stated in 2019.
This assertion is corroborated by video.
Additionally, the cops would force Nolley's automobile to crash on I-285 before trying to execute him as he fled.
"He leapt out of the truck, hopped over the railing, and ran into the woods," Patterson said. "That's when they shot him in the back, and he was absolutely unarmed." "He sustained two gunshot wounds to the back and two gunshot wounds to the legs." According to the dash and body camera footage — which was kept hidden for nearly three years — Nolley is seen rushing out of the driver's side door and trying to run into the woods before his car even stops moving. Rather than pursue him, use a taser, or use less-lethal force, Etienne and Varner opened fire on the defenceless guy, spraying 30 bullets at him as he fled, posing no danger.
Nolley was unarmed when he left the car and fled, the complaint claims, and "presented no risk" to the cops, who "had no cause to assume Mr. Nolley constituted a safety threat to anybody as he fled on foot." When cops shot at him, he was struck twice in the legs and twice in the back, the complaint claims, leaving him paralysed from the waist down. According to the complaint, there was no legal basis for the use of force, which was described as "unreasonable and disproportionate."A judge agreed last month and charged both policemen with various offences stemming from the event. According to the Associated Press, the aggravated assault and battery charges, as well as one violation of oath count, stem from Nolley's shooting, while the reckless conduct charge and the other violation of oath count stem from officers firing their guns at the shopping centre, endangering the safety of a woman.
According to the GBI, one of the shots fired at the retail centre struck a pharmacy store on a nearby lot, wounding a lady with falling glass. Fortunately, their acts did not result in the harm or death of any other innocent individuals. Nolley's action demands a jury trial and damages in the amount of $30 million, in addition to legal expenses and fees.
The videos are listed below.
A Florida lady discovered the hard way what it's like to dial 911 in a police state. While some police officers would jump in valiantly to put an end to perilous situations, others seem to thrive on establishing their power and injuring others. Dyma Loving got the latter after she contacted 911 to report being attacked with a dangerous weapon. Fortunately for Loving, her buddy recorded the incident, and as a result of the footage, Loving was cleared and the rogue officer was prosecuted and sentenced this week. Officer Alejandro Giraldo was charged with official misconduct, a felony, for allegedly fabricating reports. Additionally, he was charged with violence in connection with his reaction to the 911 call.
"After examining the sworn statements...and all available video footage, we feel there is sufficient evidence to prosecute a breach of Florida's criminal laws," the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office stated in a statement.
Thursday, jurors debated for just more than an hour and found Giraldo guilty of violence and official misconduct.
He now faces a maximum sentence of five years in jail.
After his conviction, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle issued the following statement. "We will continue to do everything possible to hold police responsible for violating the law, because when a law enforcement officer commits a crime, it erodes the confidence necessary to keep our citizens and communities safe." As we previously reported, Loving and her friend Adrianna Green phoned 911 on March 5, 2019, after a guy reportedly brandished a shotgun and threatened them with it. Loving and Green, understandably, are enraged at being attacked with a lethal weapon, and hence speak loudly. However, one of the arriving cops, Alejandro Giraldo, interprets this loudness as a threat, and he steps in to abuse the completely innocent lady.
"Do not touch me," Loving screams as another police officer, only known as Officer Calderon, grabs her other arm. "Make a note of this. Keep your hands off of me."
Loving is then pushed against the fence as Giraldo tightens the shackles around her neck and throws her to the ground.
She had caused no damage. "I wanted to call my child," Loving adds as the other police arrive to assist with the attack. "I just said that I wanted to contact my child. My phone is completely dead. What are you unable to comprehend? I had a pistol pointed at me, and my child is ill. I'm tense. I have to go and contact my children. "I am perplexed."
Loving is then jerked up to her feet and carried away to Giraldo's police cruiser, where she is detained and charged with disorderly behaviour and resisting arrest.
"As we attempted to separate the people involved, Ms. Loving got more angry, aggressive, and uncooperative," the fabricated police report claimed. "Ms. Loving screamed at us, creating a scene."
Giraldo then refers to Loving's activities as "violent," despite the fact that they are not aggressive at all.
Fortunately for Loving, there was video evidence of what occurred, and the footage was shared on social media.
After seeing the footage, Miami-Dade Police Director Juan J. Perez suspended Giraldo. He was then charged with and convicted of the offence. According to ABC, Loving's attorney, Justin Moore, said that Loving "expressed relief" after Giraldo's arrest and commended prosecutors for continuing the case. However, he said that more cops should face penalties for their involvement in the event.
"The reality is that the other officers engaged in Dyma's arrest supported Officer Giraldo and produced incident reports," Moore said. "It is quite natural that they face the same scrutiny as Officer Giraldo."
We concur. Officer Calderon, who assisted his fellow criminal officer rather than apprehending him, should also face responsibility. He has not, though.
The video below illustrates what it's like to call 911 in a police state as an innocent black lady. Additionally, it demonstrates the critical need of taping all police contacts. Without this video, Loving may be in prison right now instead of Giraldo.
Researchers discovered that fewer than 5% of all calls routed to police throughout the nation are made soon enough for officers to intervene in a crime or apprehend a suspect. The 911 bottom line is that "instance in which 911 technology significantly affects the outcome of criminal events are very uncommon." Additionally, as the preceding example demonstrates, it is quite dangerous.
Making a 911 call for assistance and then being abused or murdered by police occurs far too often. We reported on the tale of Kevin Davis, who contacted 911 to say his fiancée had been stabbed, the same month Loving was attacked. When officers arrived at his residence, they assassinated him.
Every time American police try to improve racial relations and reestablish trust, policemen like DeWitt officer Chad Vorce emerge out of hiding and reverse the progress. Last year, dramatic footage showed Vorce chasing an innocent coloured youngster just because he was melanin in his area.
A video of the event was published in November 2021. Vorce's outrageous use of force and racial profiling began when he observed Alexander Hamilton, 19, distributing newspapers in his neighbourhood.
Vorce was ultimately charged more than a year after the incident and after being reinstated.
The Michigan Attorney General's Office was contacted in January 2022. Vorce is charged with the following in Clinton County District Court 65A:
Weapons - felony firearm, a crime punished by two years concurrently with and before any term of imprisonment imposed for the criminal or attempted felony conviction; and misconduct in office, a felony punishable by up to 5 years in jail and/or $10,000.
“Our investigation revealed Mr Vorce's hazardous behaviour,” stated Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. Protectors and soldiers must act appropriately. Whoever breaks that pledge will be held accountable.”
A melanated youngster in his neighbourhood set off a chain of events that left Vorce jobless and the teen almost dead. Hamilton was working in the area that morning. He delivered newspapers to several homes in Vorce's area.
Despite Hamilton's innocence, Vorce, who was off-duty and out of his jurisdiction, opted to pursue him. Vorce contacted 911 and proceeded to follow the innocent newspaper delivery guy.
Hamilton stopped to inquire about the situation. He tried to back up to get beside Vorce, but Vorce kept backing up. Hamilton eventually drove away, but Vorce followed.
“A melanin man in the area,” Vorce says on the 911 tape.
“He's ramming me!” The youngster backed up and tried to speak to Vorce. “I'll shoot if he does it again!”
When Hamilton drove into a neighbouring gas station, Vorce went insane.
Vorce gets out of his pickup and shoots Hamilton. Because he had no knowledge Vorce was an officer, Hamilton had every right to grab his own pistol and murder him.
“He matches the same description, black hoodie... freakin' melanin guy,” Vorce says as another officer enters.
But no description suited. The cops weren't searching for anybody that night, so Vorce was the only danger.
When the other cops came, Hamilton was able to explain what had transpired, and they sided with him.
“He told the child directly to his face,” stated another cop. When I see a melanin man in my area, I assume you're doing this.
Despite losing his employment, Vorce received no additional disciplinary punishment and was reinstated months later when the department concluded he had "learned his lesson" and demonstrated "real regret" for his behaviour.
For now, he seems to be facing years in jail.
On April 4, an unidentified officer with the Grand Rapids police department performed a traffic stop on Patrick Lyoya, 26, a Congolese refugee. Lyoya would die moments later from a gunshot wound to the back of his skull — placed there by the police officer — for committing a minor traffic infraction.
Lyoya's death exemplifies how the system discriminates against the poor and minorities via exorbitant traffic fines and penalties for non-compliance. Lyoya's licence was suspended, and he was well aware that the officer who pulled him over that day would almost certainly arrest him for it. As a result, he attempted to flee.
Lyoya was not permitted to go since it is a police officer's duty to abduct and imprison individuals for victimless offences such as suspended licences. Rather than that, the police increased the officer's aggression toward the unarmed, non-violent individual.
The nightmare for Lyoya's two children and his parents began that tragic day, and they were forced to wait until Wednesday to see how it played out. It's one of the most horrific videos we've seen in a long time.
The officer started the traffic stop, according to the Grand Rapids police department, because the licence plate on Lyoya's automobile did not match the vehicle in the system.
Lyoya leaves the vehicle during the stop before the officer asks for his driver's licence and instructs him to return to the vehicle. Lyoya made the decision to escape at that point. At this time, the officer pursued Lyoya and began a scuffle on the ground.
Lyoya made no effort to strike or otherwise damage the officer throughout the battle. He was only attempting to flee and protect himself from the officer's onslaught.
Lyoya snatches the officer's taser as he prepares to discharge it.
"Stop!" shouts the cop. "Release the Taser!"
The officer remains on Lyoya's back for around 90 seconds before drawing his handgun, placing it on the back of Lyoya's head, and firing. Lyoya would not survive the bullet to the back of his skull in the manner of execution.
Ben Crump, a prominent attorney specialising in police brutality, is representing the family and issued a statement on Wednesday requesting that the officer be sacked, jailed, and prosecuted for what he termed excessive force and the "violent death of Patrick Lyoya."
"The video plainly demonstrates that this was an outrageous, lethal use of force on an unarmed innocent man who was befuddled by the encounter and scared for his life," Crump said. "It should be emphasised that Patrick never resorted violence against this officer, despite the officer's repeated use of force against him during a minor traffic stop."
According to Lt. Michelle Robinson of the Michigan state police, their agency will be managing the investigation.
"This is going to be a major priority for us to ensure that the inquiry is finished on schedule," Robinson added.
The officer in question is now on paid administrative leave and has not been charged.
Residents have been protesting since Lyoya's death, with many pointing out that this is a trend with the GRPD.
"For three years, we have attended every single commission meeting, protested, marched, and circulated petitions informing these city officials that the GRPD is on a power trip and that unless they begin holding them accountable, another Black person will be killed by the police," one public commenter told the Press.
Lyoya immigrated to the United States with his five brothers and sisters as a kid. His family fled Congolese violence in search of a better and safer life in the United States. Unfortunately, and in a cruel twist of irony, their desire for a safer and better life has come to a brutal and deadly conclusion at the hands of the American police state.
