He needs to die, let alone be in prison for life.

The Mesa PD is at it still. This is the same department that essentially got away with murder (see response 671 a couple of pages back for details.) Two new cases :

First, it's rather clear that the victim has gone limp, yet the police are still wailing on him.

Quote
Then four officers close in on Johnson, three of them begin punching him after one of them knees him, the video shows. Seven minutes after the officers handcuff him and zip tie his feet, officers began escorting Johnson into an elevator before one officer shoves his head into the elevator door, the video shows. The officers then bring Johnson back to the deck.

Toward the end of the video, one officer wraps a white cloth around Johnson's face, covering his eyes before three officers pick him up by his feet and arms and carry him into the elevator.

Second, they beat on an 84 year old grandmother (Yes, you read that correctly)

Police protected their own; now an innocent woman is dead

They did not have to die.

That’s the bitter truth. Katie Sasser and her friend John Hall would likely still be alive if cops and prosecutors in Glynn County, Georgia, had done their jobs. But they were more interested in protecting one of their own. So Sasser and Hall were shot to death in June by Sasser’s estranged husband, Robert C. Sasser. He then killed himself.

Consider it the grim coda to a tale told in this space in 2016, about the most troubling police shooting you’ve never heard of. It began in June of 2010 when Caroline Small, a troubled 35-year-old woman, led police on a low-speed chase after being spotted using drugs.

The dashcam video shows that they caught her, had her hemmed in on all sides with four flat tires. Small rocked the car back and forth a couple times, but it was useless. She had nowhere to go. And for no good reason whatsoever, then-Sgt. Sasser and Officer Todd Simpson shot her, eight rounds peppering her windshield. As she lay dying, they bragged about their marksmanship.

“I hit her right in the face … right on the bridge of the nose,” said Sasser.

Simpson waved off a former EMT who approached the car. “She’s dead. I shot her in the head. Her head exploded.” Small died seven days later.

But that wasn’t the worst. A 2015 investigation by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB-TV, a local ABC affiliate, found that police tampered with the crime scene, manufactured misleading evidence and interfered with a supposedly “independent” investigation, aided and abetted by District Attorney Jackie Johnson, who deferred to and helped the defense at every step.

As a result, Sasser and Simpson (who died of brain cancer in 2016) were cleared of wrongdoing. A civil suit was dismissed.

“I’ve lost many nights of sleep over it,” David Peterson, a former prosecutor in Johnson’s office, told the AJC. “This was a murder, and it was covered up. It shouldn’t have happened. It was wrong.”


As noted, unless you live in the region, you’ve probably never heard of this case. That’s because Small was white. As such, she does not fit comfortably into our national debate on police brutality, dominated as it has been by African Americans like Philando Castile, Tamir Rice and Freddie Gray.

But as I pointed out two years ago, “Although African Americans bear the brunt of our refusal to demand accountability for police misbehavior, unchecked power ultimately has no racial loyalties.”

The British historian Lord Acton famously put it like this: “Power tends to corrupt. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Sasser got away with murder because of that corrupted power, because it closed ranks and looked the other way. Heck, he even got a promotion. Apparently, no one thought to ask whether two men who could callously execute a woman who posed no threat were fit to be police officers. Apparently, no one wondered if maybe they should be in prison.

In May, Sasser was arrested for domestic violence. A few days later, he tried to assault fellow officers after a nine-hour standoff during which he was suicidal. Last month, he murdered Katie Sasser and John Hall.

And maybe none of it would have happened had anyone done right by Small, had they not placed law enforcers above the law itself.
May every cop and prosecutor wrestle with the lessons of that failure. May every individual who thinks police brutality is something black people made up realize that under unchecked power, no one is safe.

And may every person who failed Caroline Small meet her in their dreams.

Woman visiting Nevada dies in jail
« Reply #694 on: September 07, 2018, 04:28:54 AM »
With a hospital across the street. But she was refused care..............  The county DA is protecting their own, too.

https://www.kvue.com/video/news/local/texas-woman-who-died-in-nevada-jail-denied-care-friends-and-family-say/269-8241523

The family of a 27-year-old Nevada woman who died in police custody last year has sued the county sheriff’s office, accusing deputies of failing to provide her with necessary medical attention when she asked for it, thus contributing to her death. According to the suit, deputies also failed to notice that she had been dead in her cell for six hours before they bothered to check on her.

According to USA Today, in July 2017, Kelly Coltrain was locked up in a cell at the Mineral County jail for failing to pay parking tickets. Coltrain had reportedly told police she had a drug dependency with withdrawal symptoms that included seizures; though the officer in charge, Sergeant Jim Holland, was supposed to have a doctor clear Coltrain once he learned she had seizures, he did not, according to court documents.

Four hours into Coltrain’s lockup, she informed the deputy in charge, Ray Gulcynski, that she needed to go to a hospital to get her medication. He told her no.

Quote from: Shit Policeman #1
“Unfortunately, since you’re DT’ing (referring to the detoxification process), I’m not going to take you over to the hospital right now just to get your fix,” Deputy Ray Gulcynski told Coltrain, according to the investigation report. “That’s not the way detention works, unortunately. You are incarcerated with us, so … you don’t get to go to the hospital when you want. When we feel that your life is at risk… then you will go.”

On her third day in the cell, according to the report, Coltrain started vomiting and “making short, convulsive type movements.” Holland told her to mop up her vomit, which she attempted to do from her bed:

Quote from: Shit Policeman #2
“Sgt. Holland advised he thought Coltrain was just ‘lazy’ and that she just didn’t want to stand up to clean the floor,” the report said. “Sgt. Holland advised he just wanted the floor to be cleaned and he didn’t care how it got done, just that it got cleaned up.”

Shortly after, surveillance video from the cell shows Coltrain suffering repeated convulsions. At 6:26 p.m., she stopped moving. No deputy entered her cell until 12:30 a.m., whereupon Gulcynski found her unresponsive and eventually declared dead.

State investigators found that the sheriff’s office failed to adhere to certain department policies that might have saved Coltrain’s life, and that the deputies could have walked Coltrain to an area hospital in a little over two minutes. Holland took a buy-out with the department, and Gulcynski was reportedly disciplined.

A county district attorney who investigated the case neglected to press charges, arguing that they did not exhibit any “cruel, oppressive or malicious treatment” toward Coltrain. Coltrain’s family is suing the county both to compensate damages as well as to press for better jail conditions.

Tldr: Cop "accidentally" kills a man when she "accidentally" invades a home and gets paid leave.

Some seems super fishy about this one

I saw an unverified claim that they use to date.   
I was wondering how did she get into his place.  My first thought was honestly  she knew him & had a key.   Here's more regarding this.

I had a feeling it was going to be something like that. The whole thing was too sketchy.

Seems there's a pic of them together.

I haven't done a Facebook or Twitter search for either of them.

I wonder if the main reason for people in US to join the police is to have the right the be a bully over other persons.

Here, the main reason is the steady paycheck and for this reason most of them come from southern part of the country.

I honestly  feel that for the most part there's  of course  people that want to do good as a cop.   But, once their in there's many different paths that diverge for them all.   And if course you get those who get the power of the badge behind them to support their who trip & feel that their untouchable as a result of it.   There's  to many instances  of that kind of mentality that are shown.   We wouldn't have this thread if that wasn't a component.

They still have not charged that woman officer. Her story sounds like crap regardless.

Police in America are out of control. It's at the point where shoot first and ask questions later is standard procedure. They know they won't usually face serious ramifications.
