Maryland Cop Who Put His Gun to Homeowner’s Head Sentenced to Prison

Imagine you have gone out with a friend to a restaurant or a ball game, and your friend drives. You get home, and your friend pulls the car in front of your house and you talk for a few minutes before exiting the car to go to your house. A Cop pulls up, and claims you are “illegally parked”, even though thee are no no-parking signs on the street – and you are still in the car with the engine running. You explain to the Cop that this is your house, show him your ID and get out to go home, when the Cop pulls out his gun, and points it in your face while screaming at you – threatening to kill you. That was exactly the situation in PG County in the Maryland suburbs last year. Fortunately a bystander caught the cop on video.

Justice actually happens…Sometimes. This one was an egregious case of a Prince George’s Cop, in the suburbs of Washington, DC attacking a pair of men, one of whom was being dropped off at his home by his friend. The motive apparently was to show off for some of the Cop’s friends who were on an illegal “ride along” on that day.

 Former Md. police officer sentenced for pointing gun at man’s head

The victim of the Police Assault, William Cunningham speaks to the press outside the Courthouse.

A former police officer who was found guilty of holding his gun to a Prince George’s County resident’s head to intimidate him will serve five years in prison without the chance of parole for his actions.

The sentence was the mandatory minimum that former Prince George’s County officer Jenchesky Santiago could have been given. He faced up to 45 years behind bars. He was convicted in December of first- and second-degree assault, use of a handgun during a crime of violence, and misconduct in office.

Santiago’s actions were captured on cellphone video, which was a key piece of evidence at his trial.

The incident happened in 2014 after Santiago, while on patrol, approached a car that he claimed was illegally parked in a Bowie neighborhood. When a passenger in that car tried to walk off to his home, Santiago ordered him back into the car, pulled his weapon when the man refused, and dared the man to a fight. He can be seen on video holding his gun up to the victim’s face.

Before handing down the sentence, Judge Dwight Jackson called the case “sad on a lot of levels” and said there were “no winners … only losers.”

Jackson, the son of a police officer, told Santiago “you have diminished them and what they do.” He speculated that Santiago was “perhaps bored, or perhaps wanted to show off” to two friends whom he had brought on an unauthorized ride-along that day.

The judge also heard at times tearful statements from Santiago’s mother, sister and fiancee, who described him as a caring, loving person devoted to his two young children. Jackson later said, “The person who is here to be sentenced bears no resemblance to the person they know.”

Prosecutors also accused Santiago of not taking responsibility for his actions. In a recorded phone conversation from jail, Santiago “described the fact that not only was he not remorseful and had no intention of apologizing in this case,” said Angela Alsobrooks, the state’s attorney for Prince George’s County, “but still believed even after this case that he was owed an apology from the victim.”

“It kind of didn’t sit well with me to hear that he was not apologetic, or had no remorse,” said victim William Cunningham outside the courthouse. “I did think that he may shoot me, or my life may have been in jeopardy.”

Santiago, now 26, was fired from the police department on Dec. 18. His lawyer said he also expects Santiago to be dishonorably discharged from the Navy, where he serves as a reservist.

Vicious and Depraved Men Beat Cerebral Palsy Victim in Detroit and Paste Crime on Facebook

There is a class on individuals called Sociopaths. People who have no feeling relative to the welfare of others. Fortunately in this case the scumbags were truly stupid – so it is unlikely they will do anyone else any harm for a long long time. This one is only different from the San Bernardino massacre in that the scumbags didn’t apparently have a gun.

‘Cowards’ Beat Man With Cerebral Palsy, Post Video on Facebook

Two “cowards” filmed themselves beating up a man with cerebral palsy using his own cell phone, then uploaded the evidence to the victim’s Facebook page, authorities in Michigan said.

Nikey Dashone Walker and Shadeed Dontae Bey, both 20, were arrested Monday for Sunday’s attack, which took place inside a stairwell at the victim’s Pontiac apartment complex, Oakland County Sheriff’s Department said.

Authorities said two men stole the 23-year-old victim’s cell phone and filmed the attack after he tried to get it back.

A graphic video released by the sheriff’s department shows the men viciously kicking and punching him until he appears unconscious on the floor.

“Record it. Hold on, record it,” one of the men says just after the victim falls to the ground after he appears to try to fight back.

At one point, one of the two men pauses to grin at the camera and boast about what he’s done. He appears to say  the man is “sleeping.”

“Come on let’s go,” one of them eventually says, leaving the victim lying on the ground as they return to the stairs.

Walker and Bey were arraigned Tuesday on charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder; home invasion; and unarmed robbery — all felonies.

More Gunshots Fired Near Minneapolis BLM Protest

Appears that the white supremacist types are trying to intimidate the protesters by guns.

This is the video of armed white supremacists seeking to terrorize the protesters. It is unclear whether these are the people who shot 5 demonstrators.

More gunshots fired overnight at Minneapolis protests: ‘CALL THIS WHAT THE F*CK IT IS — TERRORISM’

More gunshots were fired overnight at the site of ongoing protests of the Minneapolis police killing of Jamar Clark.

Police confirmed that shots were fired about 2 a.m. Wednesday near the Fourth Precinct, where five Black Lives Matters protesters were wounded about 27 hours before during a dispute with three white men, reported the Washington Post.

Authorities were unable to provide any details about the latest shooting — including information about who fired the shots or why.

Reports of the gunfire circulated early Wednesday on social media, where video was posted online showing the moments shortly after the shots were fired.

The video shows demonstrators running for cover behind a barricade or lying flat on the ground near their campfires as activists shouted “get down.”

“F*ck this laying down shit,” one activist shouts. “Let’s shoot back.”

Police arrested three men Tuesday afternoon in connection with the shootings and released a fourth man after questioning.

A spokeswoman for the local NAACP chapter claimed the police department allowed the men to bully protesters for days and stood by during the shooting and initially refused to help the victims.

Authorities have been reluctant to agree with witnesses who described the men as white supremacists, but social media posts by the suspects reveal frequent use of racial slurs and a fascination with Confederate imagery and right-wing militia groups.

The suspects — identified by police as 23-year-old Allen “Lance” Scarsella, 21-year-old Nathan Gustavsson and 26-year-old Daniel Macey — have not been formally charged but remain jailed on suspicion of assault.

Emails and online videos show the men plotted to disrupt the protests — and activists said they appeared daily since last week, wearing military clothing, masks and bulletproof armor as they recorded video of demonstrators’ faces and harassed them at their camps.

Their supporters claim the men acted in self-defense after witnesses said they were punched during an altercation with protesters, who asked them to take off their masks or leave, but many people have described the men as “terrorists.”

The Black Girlfriend Defense For School Cop

Got a new one for the School Cop who physically abused a black teen…

According to the Police Chief – he has a black girlfriend.

Chief really doesn’t understand that the Cop is being accused of over-the-top violence. Nobody gives a damn who, or what his off-hours honey is.

Sheriff Says Cop in Classroom Arrest Video Has a Black Girlfriend, Is Definitely Not Racist

At a press conference this afternoon, Richland County sheriff Leon Lott told reporters that his office is conducting a speedy internal investigation to determine whether theofficer caught on video violently arresting a high school girl in Spring Valley, South Carolina this week deserves to be fired. Lott said investigators are looking at three separate videos of the incident, one of which he said shows the girl hitting Sheriff’s Deputy Ben Fields with her fist, and will make a decision about whether he will remain employed within 24 hours.

Lott called the video “disturbing” several times during the press conference, and emphasized that the student’s behavior in the situation will be “irrelevant” in evaluating whether Fields violated proper procedure. “What’s relevant,” Lott said, “is his actions.” He added that Fields has been suspended without pay.

What might have been a perfectly unobjectionable presser included one jawdropping moment, when the sheriff said he did not believe race played any role in what happened between Fields, who is white, and the student, who is black. In fact, Lott reportedly said, it is his understanding that Field “has been dating an African American female” “for quite some time.”

SC School Cop Body Slams and Throws HS Girl Across Room

This one is hard to watch.

Parents outraged over video of confrontation between high school student and school resource officer

RICHLAND COUNTY, S.C. — A school district in South Carolina is investigating the actions of a school resource officer after video circulated widely on social media Monday showing him violently removing a student from her desk.

It’s not known what led up to the incident Monday at Spring Valley High School in Columbia.

WIS-TV reported the student was asked to leave the classroom. When she refused, the officer was called in, according to WIS-TV.

The officer, identified as Ben Fields, can be heard on cell phone video telling the girl to get up from her desk.

“You’re either going to come with me, or I’m going to make you,” he says.

When she remains seated, he tells her, “Come on, I’m going to get you up,” before picking her up from the desk and throwing her to the floor.

As he continues to try to restrain her, she is thrown several feet across the classroom as the officer tells her repeatedly to put her hands behind her back.

Richland School District Two Superintendent Dr. Debbie Hamm said in a statement that safety is the district’s “top priority,” and that officials are working with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department in an investigation.

“The district will not tolerate any actions that jeopardize the safety of our students,” Hamm said.

The officer has been told not to return to school during the investigation and has been placed on administrative leave by the Sheriff’s Department.

The video was trending on Facebook and the hashtag #AssaultAtSpringValleyHigh was the No. 1 trending topic Twitter on Monday night as people reacted to the incident. Many expressed shock at the force used, while others noted the girl was not complying with the officer’s demands.

Facebook users inundated the Richland County Sheriff’s Department with comments expressing outrage over the officer’s actions and called for his firing.

A spokesman for the department said Sheriff Leon Lott is aware of the video and “was very disturbed by it.”

“He has questions like everyone has — and he wants answers and once he has those answers, he will address them,” said Sheriff’s Department spokesman Lt. Curtis Wilson.

Fields did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment Monday night.

Parents of students at the high school are reacting to the video. A group called the “Richland Two Black Parents Association” called the video “unacceptable.”

“Parents are heartbroken as this is just another example of the intolerance that continues to be of issue in Richland School District Two particularly with families and children of color,” the group said in a statement, according to WIS-TV. “As we have stated in the past, we stand ready to work in collaboration to address these horrible acts of violence and inequities among our children.”

Zimmerman Pulls Gun on Wife – Arrested

The white right’s favorite killer is at it again. This time threatening his wife and father-in-law with a gun.

This is the third time he has been in trouble with the law since escaping a murder conviction.

As story 2 points out – the Florida Police kicked him loose without charges…Again.

George Zimmerman questioned by police after wife reports gun threat

George Zimmerman, the Florida man who was acquitted of murder two months ago in the shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, was questioned on Monday by police after his estranged wife called 911 saying he threatened her with a gun.

“He’s in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun and keeps saying step closer … and he’s gonna shoot us,” a breathless and clearly scared Shellie Zimmerman told the police emergency operator, according to the 911 call released by police.

“He’s just threatening all of us with his firearm,” she added.

Shellie Zimmerman, who filed for divorce last week, also said her husband had punched her father in the nose and smashed her iPad.

“I don’t know what he’s capable of. I’m really, really scared,” she told the 911 operator.

Lake Mary, Florida, police spokesman Zach Hudson said no one had been arrested or injured after police officers were called to a house belonging to Shellie Zimmerman’s father, David Dean.

At one point she told her father to take cover. “Dad, Dad, get inside the house. George might start shooting at us,” she can be heard shouting.

“Oh my God, oh my God,” she added, breaking down in tears.

Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell later said Shellie and her father did not to plan to press charges.

Zimmerman was briefly put in a patrol car and later the former neighbor watchman accused his wife of being the aggressor in the incident, he said.

“There was an altercation and one party put their hands on another party,” Hudson added. “We’re still trying to figure out who touched whom.”

Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara arrived at the scene and was expected to make a statement later, according to O’Mara’s spokesman Shawn Vincent.

The three-bedroom house on a cul-de-sac in a leafy suburb of Orlando was where the couple lived during George Zimmerman’s month-long trial, said Shellie’s brother, David Dean Jr.

Shellie and her father arrived on Monday with a truck and a trailer to remove Shellie’s belongings from the house after she filed for divorce last week.

Zimmerman was acquitted on July 13 of murdering 17-year-old Martin as the teenager walked back to the townhouse where he was staying after buying snacks at a nearby convenience store. Zimmerman said he shot Martin in February 2012 in self-defense.

George Zimmerman won’t be charged after alleged domestic incident

No charges will be filed against George Zimmerman after an alleged altercation with his estranged wife and her father, Lake Mary, Florida, Police Chief Steve Bracknell said Monday.

“Shellie Zimmerman has declined prosecution (after consulting with her attorney),” Bracknell said.

George Zimmerman had been temporarily detained by police after Shellie Zimmerman told 911 Monday that he had threatened her and her father with a weapon.

On the 911 call, Shellie Zimmerman, who filed for divorce last week, is breathing heavily when she tells a dispatcher that Zimmerman is still at the house.

“He’s in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun, and he’s saying, ‘Step closer.’ He’s just threatening all of us with his firearm,” she says….

Quite frankly – you can’t blame her for being afraid to prosecute and testify in Florida with their half-assed policemen, and jumped up kangaroo courts. They would probably wind up putting her in jail for being abused.

Orange Jumpsuit… Minister

Hmmm… Seems like the Right Reverend also swings a mean left shoe…

This one eventually is headed for a train wreck.

Creflo Dollar’s Mug Shot

Police arrest Georgia megachurch pastor after disturbance at home

Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar was arrested in suburban Atlanta for an alleged assault on his 15-year-old daughter, police said Friday.

Deputies in Georgia’s Fayette County responded to a call about a domestic disturbance about 1 a.m. Friday. Dollar’s daughter said she argued with her father over attending a party, said Investigator Brent Rowan of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office.

The daughter says the argument got physical.

She told the deputies that her father charged her, put his hands around her throat and began to choke her, according to a police report. She said he then slammed her to the ground, punched her and beat her with his shoe.

Dollar’s daughter was able to get away and dial 911, Rowan said. Read the rest of this entry »
