    Groom beaten unconscious by police at his own wedding

    Posted on March 11, 2014 by PSUSA in News

    http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/g...en-at-wedding/



    DES MOINES, IA — A settlement has been reached for a groom who was beaten unconscious at his own wedding reception, although the city still refuses to admit their officer did anything wrong.

    The case dates back to 2011, when John Twombly and his bride Khamla made their vows. They held a reception with roughly 275-300 guests, and hired an off-duty Des Moines police officer, Andrew Phipps, to provide security.

    (Mistake the first - AF)

    During a night of dancing with his guests, Twombly became upset when once one of his groomsmen became “very flirty” with his wife. The groomsman — Mr. Cullen — grabbed the bride from behind and made gestures that he was going to grab her breasts. This provoked a response from the groom. Twombly pushed Cullen, causing him to lose his balance and knock over a ceramic column, falling into the lap of Officer Phipps. Phipps called for backup.

    (Mistake the second - AF)

    According to the lawsuit, Twombly had regained his composure and was talking to his guests when as many as 20 officers swarmed into the reception hall moments later. The officers “overwhelmed” Twombly and slammed him into a wall, then tackled to the ground. The version of events was corroborated by several other guests who were addressed by name in the complaint.

    “The police officer completely lost it. I didn’t touch the officer at all except on his bicep, and he went berserk on me. He pinned my head down with his knee.”

    “They just came running through the entrance of the room, hit me in the back of the head, and I went down to the ground,” said Twombly to WHOtv.

    One particularly brutal cop, Officer Cody Grimes, was seen by witnesses punching the groom in the eye. While Twombly had already been handcuffed, Grimes delivered repeated blows to his face. A 63-year-old guest named John Ellsworth Frederick Schildberg III felt that Twombly’s life was in danger and intervened after witnessing the beating. Schildberg “reached out and placed his hand over Defendant Grimes’ bicep to prevent another punch.” The document states that Mr. Schildberg “saw a wholesale loss of composure and control” on the part of the officer, and believed that if he continued, he would have killed the Twombly.

    For stepping in and possibly saving the groom’s life, Mr. Schildberg was “shoved” into a hallway and “repeatedly kicked” by Officer Grimes while being threatened with jail time for interference with official acts.

    “The police officer completely lost it,” Schildberg told Fox News. “I didn’t touch the officer at all except on his bicep, and he went berserk on me. … He pinned my head down with his knee.”

    ("Police Officer"? No, $#@! cop. Mistake the third - AF)

    Schildberg was indeed charged with interference with official acts, but the charge was later dismissed.

    Twombly, who had lost consciousness, was hospitalized and his injuries were assessed. A CAT scan revealed multiple fractures to his right orbital bone. He was charged with criminal mischief, two counts of assault on an officer, and disorderly conduct.

    The Des Moines Police Department stood by their officers and cleared them of all wrongdoing. After about 2 weeks of paid administrative leave time, the officers — even Grimes — were patrolling the street once again.

    A lawsuit was filed against Grimes and Phipps, citing a number of violations of rights and other damages. Nearly 3 years after the incident, Jake Twombly was awarded $75,000 from the city. Yet officials insisted the money was not an admission of guilt. In fact, the department to this date stands by Grimes’ actions in the 2011 incident, and refuses to release the internal police review.

    “Yeah, I think he’s real dangerous,” Twombly remarked about Officer Grimes. “I think he should be reviewed and fired.”

    The restraint that police departments show before firing an officer like Cody Grimes has time and again proven to enable serial abusers and bad cops to remain in power. The night he used a groom’s face as a punching bag was not the first time he had displayed his poor judgement as a police officer.

    In October 2010, responding to a call near the KCCI news studios in downtown Des Moines, Officer Grimes saw a dark figure with something in his hand, so he opened fire. It turned out to be a KCCI photographer who had been outside with cell phone in his hands. The shot missed. Grimes was, of course, cleared and kept on the force.

    In December 2013, Officer Grimes again made headlines in a case of domestic battery when he allegedly choked his girlfriend and threw her down the stairs in his home. Grimes was finally charged in the case, but remains on administrative leave with pay unless he actually gets a conviction.

    Had Grimes been fired when he tried to shoot a photojournalist in 2010, perhaps the suffering of his future victims could have been avoided.

    Bridgeport man faces felony after speaking too long at township board meeting

    http://www.mlive.com/news/saginaw/in...dgeport_m.html



    (That's the resisting. As Officer Fatass and his pals shuffle around the chairs and shove the Mundane around. Felony. - AF)

    BRIDGEPORT TOWNSHIP, MI — A Bridgeport man faces a felony charge after he was arrested by police at a township board meeting when he refused to stop talking past a three-minute time limit for public comment.

    Mark A. Adams, 59, was arraigned Friday, March 14, by Saginaw County District Judge A.T. Frank on a felony charge of resisting and obstructing a police officer and a misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace.

    Adams was arrested during a March 4 Bridgeport Township meeting by three Bridgeport Township police officers after violating the township's three-minute time limit set for people making public comments and refusing to stop talking when township officials told him to.

    The arrest was on Adams' 59th birthday, according to public records.

    Adams handed a four-page document to members of the board and offered it to others at the meeting before he spoke. The document, typed with an Adams Oil logo and Adams' contact information at the top, outlines 21 grievances against Bridgeport Township officials and other government officials.

    The Saginaw News obtained a copy of the document and a video recording of the meeting from a citizen in attendance.

    Among the grievances are alleged wrongdoings of various governmental bodies including violations of the state open meetings act and Freedom of Information Act, police harassment, corruption, hate crimes, trespassing, tax fraud and more.

    The document describes some of the alleged activities as "Taliban" style.

    The document lists a "carbon copy" section with the names of county, state and federal officials and lawmakers.

    Bridgeport Township Manager Rose Licht said Adams addressed the township board and went longer than the three minutes allotted for public comment, then refused to stop when asked, leading to the arrest.

    Licht said Adams was escorted out two other times in the past but was not arrested. Tuesday, March 4, was different.

    "He was asked to wrap it up by the township supervisor and he refused and continued to talk over him," Licht said. "Several times the supervisor asked him to take a seat and he refused and the police department asked him to have a seat and took him out of the building."

    The issues between Adams and the township have been going on for several years, Licht said, regarding vacant land he owns in Bridgeport Township and compliance with township ordinances.

    "It's a long-time dispute," she said, adding, "If he would have wrapped it up, he would have been fine."

    (If he had done what we ordered, sat down and complied with our commands, he would have been fine. Sounds like freedom to me. - AF)

    When asked Friday, March 7, Bridgeport Township Chief of Police Dave Duffett made no comment other than the prosecutor was reviewing the case.

    The resisting and obstructing charge against Adams carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison.

    Frank entered a not guilty plea on his behalf and released him on a $7,500 personal recognizance bond. Adams is scheduled for a Wednesday, March 19, preliminary hearing before District Judge M. Randall Jurrens.

    Messages left for Adams seeking comment were not returned. Saginaw attorney Tom Frank confirmed earlier that Adams is his client, but had no comment.

    Bridgeport Township is in Saginaw County and had a population of 10,514 as of the 2010 U.S. Census.

    Police Brutality and Abuse is no Longer the Exception, It is the Norm
    http://thefreethoughtproject.com/pol...7mzt6iaaF9B.99
    Not a day goes by without news of another case of police brutality or the abuse of power by officers, which begs the question: is this the new norm? There was a time when it was not so common to hear about abuse by the police, let alone see actual footage of the abuse taking place. But now in this age of technology, camera phones, video cameras and even squad car dash cams have made it possible for the general public to have access to the rampant abuse of power by law enforcement. As police brutality becomes more commonplace one is left to wonder if the public can ever really feel safe and protected by the very ones supposedly charged with that duty.

    It has been said that the supreme court indicated it was not an officers job to protect the public but only to enforce the laws. If this is in fact the case, then those false “To Protect and Serve” logos need to be immediately removed from every surface they exist on. If citizens cannot depend on those who are charged with the responsibility of peace keeping, who then will keep the peace? How scary is it that often times in situations that are initially harmless, if the police show up, that situation has an increased chance of possibly getting much worse by them becoming involved. An innocent person is more likely to end up with something life changing happening to them that will definitely be painful in one way or another.
    What a stupid question.
    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.

    Fights in school during my day were broken up by teachers. This barely seems to be a minor scuffle. This copfuk should go to jail for causing brain damage to this kid. Maybe a million dollar lawsuit payout will convince these government school drones to stop allowing armed psychopath copfuk thugs to roam their hallways.

    Cedar Creek HS Tasing
    http://www.statesman.com/videos/news...tasing/vCPY7L/

    A grainy but dramatic security video raises new questions about the actions of a Bastrop County deputy sheriff who used his Taser on a high school student, resulting in brain damage to the 17-year-old, and casts doubt on official statements about what happened that day last fall.

    In the video, Noe Nino De Rivera does not appear to be displaying any aggressive physical behavior toward two deputies at Cedar Creek High School and may have been backing away when one of the two deputies fired his Taser, causing Rivera to fall backward and hit his head on the hallway floor.

    Sheriff’s officials said at the time that deputies were trying to break up a fight between two girls and that Rivera tried to interfere and acted aggressively. But the video makes it clear that the fight had been over for at least several minutes when the deputy arrived and used his Taser on Rivera.

    Illinois trooper charged with stripping man down in East St. Louis

    http://www.kmov.com/news/crime/State...255429491.html

    EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. -- An Illinois state trooper is facing a felony aggravated battery charge after authorities say he strip-searched a man along the side of a road during a traffic stop in East St. Louis.

    Cory Alberson, 32, was arrested and charged Tuesday. He was released on $20,000 bail on after he pleaded not guilty.

    Prosecutors say Alberson pulled down a man’s pants on N. 9th Street during a traffic stop in January without the man’s consent. The driver was never charged.

    A spokeswoman for the Illinois State Police says Alberson has been relieved of duty pending the outcome of an internal affairs division and court proceedings.

    “The Illinois State Police take this matter seriously and will not tolerate misconduct on any level,” said ISP Director Hiram Grau.

    St. Clair State's Attorney Brendan Kelly said ISP acted quickly.

    “There is no state's attorney in Illinois that relies more upon the courageous men and women of the state police and has greater respect and affection for them than I do, but the law is the law," he said.

    Alberson’s lawyer says the Swansea man denies any wrongdoing and plans to fight the charge in court.

    Texas Cop
    Caught on Video Tripping and Shoving HS Students Rushing Soccer Field


    Officer trips, pushes students after soccer match; police investigating
    By Lindsay Bramson, Michael Aaron Updated: Monday, April 21, 2014, 10:36 am Published: Sunday, April 20, 2014, 10:07 pm

    AUSTIN (KXAN) – Vandegrift High School won their first soccer state championship Saturday. If you look at the video attached with this story, you can see what appears to be a uniformed Georgetown police officer tripping and pushing students as they rush onto the field after the win.

    A spokesman for the Georgetown Police Department said parents began emailing the department early Sunday morning, alerting them of the video.

    As you see students rush the field after the win, a uniformed Georgetown police officer can be seen sticking his leg out to trip a high school student. He then tries to trip another student.

    Then, YouTube video shot by a student at the game shows one of them limping off the field.

    Cell phone video sent to ReportIt@KXAN.com also shows the officer pushing two girls off the field.

    snip

    The Georgetown Police Department issued a statement Sunday evening.

    “Georgetown administrators have taken the information and will be forwarding it to internal affairs for review and investigation,” GPD Captain Roland Waits said.
