Bad Cop News - 40% of police families have their own "domestic violence" cases, according to the National center on Women and policing. Drew Peterson, anyone? Tacoma Police Chief David Brame?

Retired Hercules cop John Goodner is arrested for attempted murder of his wife after she applied for restraining order.
But the new year began with Police Chief of Peachtree City, William McCollom shooting his wife at 4:30a.m. in their bedroom. Listen to the dispatch call to 9-1-1.
So why aren't reporters covering who okays the hiring of these individuals? We finally made a Facebook page. Might help in exploring the relationship between the courts and the police.
Spoke too soon! City sued for hiring Chris Hays.
OMG - San Diego PD sued again: This time for Stingray.
Considering that living in San Diego and other cities remains hazardous to the health of women throughout the county; changing how San Diego works, seems a prudent idea. Especially because San Diego Police Department's top shrink, Dr. Michael Mantell, could lose his license over his treatment of women.
San Diego sheriff's deputy Lowell Bruce shot his unarmed wife in the face. In front of their four year old. But Lowell received one very sweet sweet deal. The Maxwells sued San Diego County Sheriff's Department. Below are other instances of criminal cops, earning pensions.
Breaking: Off-duty Texas cop Kenneth Caplan, (as female passenger leaned back) shot woman in the head for honking at him.
Breaking: First Tuesday! December : Supreme Court to hear Second Amendment case involving homeless woman with stun gun the police and courts refused to protect.
11-04-14; AZ, Bullhead City
Bullhead City cop arrested for attempted sexual assault. As reported here.
11-03-14; CA, King City
King City police officer David Hernandez was arrested at his ex-girlfriend's home, after he barged in and held his former girl friend and her new boyfriend hostage, using his gun. (Didn't take the break up well.) He wasn't one of the original six King City policemen caught up in King City's earlier corruption scandal.
10-30-14: FL: Boynton Beach
Boyton Beach "Officer of the Month" Steven Maiorino accused of on-duty rape with a gun pointed at victim.
08-08-14 Oklahoma City Cop
OK: Football star and Oklahoma City cop Daniel Holtzclaw arrested for rape of several black women, while on duty.
AZ: City of Florence. Police Officer's wife sues city for civil rights violations after husband has her detained in alleged false report.
San Diego wife and husband police officers arrested for drugs. Jennifer and Bryce Charpentier were apprehended by county deputies.
LA PD officer Jose Robert Figueroa charged in attempted murder of wife. Expect these stories to continue until reporters begin asking which local therapists conduct evaluations. That's where the problem partially, lies.
Recent: In the raise your hand who's surprised, category: "Another San Diego police officer sues the police." She's female and tired of San Diego's misogynistic culture.
Consider while effective, real-time, crime prevention tools are available; in conjunction with Parole and Probation, local media airs inaccurate news features, targeting inadequate GPS, rather than effective, real-time GPS that assists in crime prevention. Or, put another way; "Marketing murder for increased hiring purposes."
Federal Judge rules San Diego Police blocked investigation of officers attacking women.
03-04-14: When San Diego Police knew they were employing a predator - and what they didn't do about it.
02-25-14 CA: San Diego Police Chief Lansdowne set to resign. Please Lord, make sure David Ramirez doesn't get the job. Otherwise, it's rearranging deck chairs on the Titantic.
Jeez. Again? San Diego needs a police chief, not an audit. While we understand Chief Lansdowne would like to retire on a good note, the fact remains under his command the department is out-of-control, as yet another case of misconduct pops up.
On the plus side...at least the public is finally aware how little city council cares about the safety of San Diego women. As the City Council has responded to every scandal with silence, we find the new awareness refreshing!
Another arrest of San Diego Police officer: City council remains Mute, and media going easy on City Council. (Just like before.) Subtext: Women remain unsafe in San Diego, now going on 12 plus years.
San Diego PD. Yes, again. More victims coming forward in the case of San Diego Police officer, Chris Hays; whose father-in-law, Lt. Mark Jones, is an assistant chief at San Diego Police Department. Why are women always at risk in San Diego? Profits. Profits to the Family Justice Center. Which offers post-crime services rather than crime prevention.
Based on our efforts and testimony, it's simple. San Diego is the Charlie Sheen of government when it comes to protecting women and children. Both San Diego City Council members, and Chief Lansdowne, enjoy a long history of refusing to protect or serve. Likewise, San Diego media (absent periodic exposes) ignores San Diego City's off-the-charts indifference to crime victims, instead of investigating the profits behind this, in any kind of meaningful, ongoing way. Which boils down one salient fact: San Diego female crime victims pay taxes for police and public services the city of San Diego refuses to provide.
Enduring example, here. Yes, police officials aided the pedophile by not doing their job.
But there's one thing you can say about San Diego police officers attacking women. They're consistent! Why is Lansdowne still chief? The answer can be found here. (They've blown every opportunity at every opportunity.) To be fair, the County hires as ETM's - men who have killed children. Think we're kidding See Jesse Thrush by Clicking here. The short version being San Diego has always been hard on women.
To wit: San Diego Sheriff's Deputy Lowell Bruce - and how DA Bonnie Dumanis came to Bruce's defense; costing the county much in the way of litigation. Dumanis and the police equal: Lots of dead women. Note to Media: Seems past time to report the identity of any and all psychologists used by the police department for evaluations. Clearly there's a problem. (The problem with media and sex crimes in San Diego is Larry Mendte, (who pleaded guilty to hacking a female co-anchor's email account), and Joe Lizura, who pleaded guilty to a lewd act, the infamous, Rod Luck, arrested for punching his girlfriend in the mouth.)
But that's just the rank and file. Consider the sex charges involving a seven year old girl, against former Fox Lake Police Chief, here.
02-05-14 HI: Female inmates subjected to outrageous abuse at the hands of warden, Neal Wagatsuma, who filmed his version of their, sexual public shamings. (Note: We are not making this up).
01-28-14 CA: San Bernardino police. Drunk or stupid? How is it San Bernardino police can believe it's a good idea to enter an elderly woman's home, from a silent burglar alarm, with a canine unit, and allow the dog to attack a sleeping 88 year old woman? Or, put another way, who hires these morons?
01-17-14 UT: Lindon Police Officer Josh Boren murdered entire family.
01-08-14 AZ: Payson Police officer Joshua Corey LaManna resigned and is Not charged with on-duty rape. Hint: Still has pension. Now works elsewhere.
12- 21-13: NY: NYPD officer Michael William was upset his girlfriend broke up with him. So he shot her, then himself.
12- 21-13: NY: Idaho jackboots attack woman in her home. Brag about their assault. Who hires these thugs with badges?
A word about media coverage on the police: On December 1, 2013, the LA Times featured a snazzy graphic piece on bad cops hired. Although we usually link to stories regarding poor examples of self-policing, this piece was so lacking that, we can't. However, and sadly, reporters live tweeted each other how brilliant the piece was. Seriously. That would be those reporters without a clue. No reporting on cops who are arrested, (long after everyone in the department knows) serve time, but retain their pensions, (or plead out with "Community service") after beating their wives, girlfriends, or women on the street. None of that information was included in the LA Times report, although just two weeks prior, the the New York Times and PBS devoted a documentary to murderous police officers, here. As well as how to combat criminal police officers, here.
Likewise, there is no reporting on the profits behind Domestic Violence.
We like to acknowledge the efforts from our betters. To that end, please follow Behind the Blue Wall, which specifically addresses cops getting away with murder.
05/27/13 - TX: San Marcus Police Officer James Palermo arrested for attacking pedestrian who walked by him without speaking, while he was on a traffic stop. The woman required medical treatment. Charges against her were dismissed.
continuing.....the main theme being - who hires these people and what about ongoing, regular mental health evaluations?
12-20-13 TX: This is just sick. Texas Border guards subjected this innocent woman to rape by exam. Repeatedly.
12-07-13 CA: Lawyers who nailed CHP officers for executing woman after high-speed chase, win big.
11-13-13 AL: A second lawsuit has been filed for sexual harassment against Sheriff Robert Hertz. This time from former secretary, Jaimie Linton.
VA Supreme Court overturns VA Tech Massacre:
Imagine how many lives might have been saved had police response not been sluggish and inept, with the first on-scene officers not immediately deciding it was a "domestic incident.' (Note: Super creepy when reporters don't asking why police refer to crimes they believe involve relationships, as "incidents.")
Police news is always breaking, however our question is this: Why does attacking women come with a nifty, pension benefits program? We like unions. At least until they run amok. Rewarding criminal behavior qualifies as "amok."
See Carlsbad Police.
11-13-13 AL: Alabama jail guard Vince Cheatham sued for repeated rape of inmate
Olivia Osborne, who was sent to the Birmingham Work Release Center. Suit alleges Cheatham told staff to put inmate on birth control. Complaint also states when Osborne complained of the rapes the staff changed the words "rape" to "kissing."
11-05-13 CA: Oh great. On-duty rapist. Originally profiled in our report of 02/24/13,
former police officer and married father of three, West Sacramento Police Officer Sergio Alvarez now faces federal lawsuit for multiple on-duty sex crimes.

St. Cloud Sgt. John Nettles Charged with stalking. Who hires these guys?
10/25/13 - PA: Feds to file against (now) ex Philly cop, ten year veteran, Joseph Harvey, for on-duty masterbating on woman. Charges against his partner, Sean Cahill, also pending. Why? Because the DA dropped the ball.

09/15/13 - AK: Fort Smith (married) police officer Billy Rowe arrested for having sex with a 16 year old girl, five times. Rowe was allowed to resign prior to arrest. One of the charges detailed Rowe engaging in sexual relations while while on duty. Another problem? Low bail. $25,000.00. Low bail is the DA's way of informing the public how of little importance the DA and the Courts believes sex crimes are. Update: 10-12-13: Rowe admitted the relationship (crime) earlier. For cops who target children see Bad Cop 2.
08/14/13 - TX: Lisa Rodriguez claims Harris County Deputy committed on-duty rape.

Both Goff and Tim Smith resigned after not arresting city council member Sam "Zeke" Lopez, following an attack on his wife. Tip line likely helped establish a cover-up after not arresting Lopez, is a factor. Marshall Goff and Tim Smith are prohibited from ever working in law enforcement again. A separate investigation continues.
06/27/13 - CO: Aurora Police admit to destroying evidence in sexual assault cases. Essentially, it's a "My bad."
06/19/13 - AR: Testimony today in the rape by instrumentation trial of retired police officer, Jimmy Watson Jones. Jones retired then was alleged to have gotten busy. The case seems to be centered around whether kids lie. Jimmy Jones previously was employed in law enforcement in Arkoma as well as a Sequoyah County agency. A defense attorney is an alternate juror.
06/18/13 - TX: In fairness, this video of a woman being brutally treated is Texas. Home to redefined "low expectations" and those big-haired women who side with criminals wearing badges.
06/17/13 - AL: Is it now Chief Jason Dean, who is being sued for making a stranded motorist perform a sex act?
06/15/13 - NY: It was terrible from the get, and Lt. Jason Margolis is known around the department for hitting on subordinates.
05/15/13 - FL: Recycling? Broward County hires 53-year-old Edwin Sanchez. Sanchez was
fired in 2008 from the Broward’s Sheriff’s Office following
accusations by a 21-year-old woman booked on drug trafficking charges
that he tried to look down her shirt, asked for her phone number and
asked her out on a date upon her release. Another reason for his firing was earlier, Edwin Sanchez forgot to mention has additional firings.

03/07/13: It's a trifecta! Callous judge Patricia Doninger (who is in domestic violence court) bad cop Marshall James Keyton- and arresting officer, (later fired.) But this time it's all caught on tape.
Interestingly, although Judge Patricia Doninger has a record of disdain for women,
(she is in the Family Court's "domestic violence" section. Which normally means one addresses crimes, not participates or ignores as Judge Doninger did for four straight minutes.)
02/24/13: West Sacramento Police Officer Sergio Alvarez arrested for on-duty predatory sex crimes against women. He is a married father. Given the nature and number of Alvarez's on-duty attacks, bail is set for 26.5 million.
01/22/13: DC police officer convicted of killing mistress, leaving baby to die in hot car. Richmond Phillips was convicted of two counts of first degree murder.

01/16/13: CHP payout after traffic stop reveals they kicked and hogtied pregnant Tamara Gaglione. Video stuns public. And yes, it was a LA DA who initially told Gaglione's attorney there was no dash-camera. More bad news. All officers involved in Gaglione's case, those who hog-tied, and kicked her in the ribs, are still on the prowl, and in uniform.

11/29/12 - OK: Another taser attack, this time in OK. McAlester PD officer Sterling Taylor-Santino, who has a record of excessive force.
New, old news. Thousands of rape kits untested in AZ. This mirrors the
Philly cops who downgraded rapes to burglaries for better crime stats.
To the surprise of no one, ex Bolingbrook Police Sgt., Drew Peterson decided not to testify in the murder trial of his third wife. Body of fourth wife still missing. He was convicted. But that he got away with it for so long....means ongoing psych evaluations seems like a good idea, but the process of "Oversight" in some states, doesn't exist. In 2002, Oceanside Police Department sued by female cops for harassment....judge allows confidential settlement. Fast forward to San Diego Police...déjà vu. But good news, the Code Of Silence is Broken in Federal Court, and police officers attacking family members.
