Las Vegas Nevada Police Officer Derek Colling is a perfect example of a broken system where Police Unions help problematice cops keep their jobs and stay employed in law enforcement so they can keep on killing. Officer Derek Colling ws fired yet able to get hired at another department and again murder an innocent person.
Derek Colling: “The Most Dangerous Cop in America” Identified as Shooter
The name of the deputy who killed Robbie Ramirez has not yet been publicly released. However, since the initial reports of that shooting Ramirez’ family has identified the deputy who killed him as former LVMPD Officer Derek Colling. No doubt that has not been confirmed by Albany County officials because Sheriff Dave O’Malley, who hired Colling even though he was fully aware of his previous firing, is currently running for reelection. With voters heading to the polls later today, reports that an unpopular hiring decision by O’Malley has resulted in a fatal shooting would be pretty inconvenient for him.
The family has further stated that Ramirez spent his entire life battling mental illness and this was well-known throughout the community. In fact, according to the family, Corporal Colling knew Ramirez personally, having graduated high school with him. As was previously stated by Randy Ramirez, his brother Robbie and Derek Colling even played baseball and sang on the school choir together during that time.
Therefore, he would undoubtedly be very much aware of Ramirez’ mental state and his tendency to run away from conflict. This obviously brings into question why other means of resolving the situation seemingly weren’t used prior to shooting him. Also, Robbie Ramirez’ own mother, Debbie Hinkel, frequently conducts training clinics for police officers as the chair of the Albany County Mental Health Board. She believes that Colling did not follow that training or properly attempt de-escalation tactics and has characterized the shooting as a murder.
Of course, those of us in Las Vegas that remember Derek Colling’s time as an officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department likely not too surprised that none of those alternatives were employed. Even before he was fired for an incident in which he beat and falsely arrested a man who was legally filming him in public, Colling already had a long and violent history.
That history included two fatal shootings in 2006 and 2009. In the 2009 shooting of Tanner Chamberlain, Colling was the only officer to fire a shot and had arrived on the scene within only seconds of making that decision to shoot. Chamberlain, who was just 15 at the time, also had a history of mental illness and was having a manic-depressive episode, similar to Ramirez. Although he was holding a knife at the time and attempting to hold her in front of himself, Chamberlain’s mother has always stated that he would not have hurt her and instead was actually cowering behind her out of fear from the police.
Officer Derek Colling, who is the voice and title of the upcoming film “in a world of hurt”, has murdered again. This is the 3rd time he has murdered while being a police officer. He was fired from LVMPD for beating mitchell crooks while filming in his own driveway. Mitchell won a 100,000 dollar settlement. Colling was fired after a 9 month paid vacation costing taxpayers 108,000. Derek colling was hired by albany sheriff despite concerns raised by the victims of collings blue privilege of terror.
When one goes to court with evidence, witnesses and documents all proving crime, abuse or wrong only to find out the judge ignores it all you realize how bad our courts have become. The fact is the commission on judicial performance; the legal bars are all just fronts that help cover up these crimes by pretending to be images of protection. It’s a huge scam and conspiracy made up of lawyers. They’ve taken the crime of “ambulance chasing” and made it into “business as usual”. This is the way of Harvard and the legal bars create legal fees no matter the cost of life, family, morals or law. Law is to be twisted any way you can as to make a profit. Then abuse the statute of limitations to get away with it.
The system is obviously broken; once you’ve been victimized you realize just how bad it really is. The unbridled power of a dishonest judge allows them to manipulate their muscle i.e. authorities to aide them in their crimes and abuse as the federal government ignores your cries and reports of violations.
When Margaret Besen, a 51-year-old nurse from East Northport, Long Island, filed for divorce from her husband in March of 2010, she believed justice was on her side.
Judge William Kent’s preliminary ruling seemed like a first step toward compromise. Margaret and Stuart Besen, who agreed their marriage was beyond repair, would remain in their suburban Suffolk County house, living in separate rooms – and keeping away from each other – while sharing custody until a resolution could be reached.
But within weeks, the situation deteriorated. Stuart Besen, a politically connected attorney for the town of Huntington, had an anger problem, Margaret told authorities. The couple’s screaming matches left Margaret feeling intimidated and their children – a daughter, 11, and son, 7 – terrified, she said. So in August of that year she obtained an order of protection prohibiting Stuart from harassing her. Three weeks later, Stuart entered Margaret’s bedroom and hovered over her as she slept, she told police. They arrested him for violating the order, reporting that Stuart had stared down at Margaret with his arms folded on three consecutive nights. She got temporary possession of the family home.
In the years that followed, Besen’s hopes for an equitable settlement dwindled as she battled a series of harsh and hard-to-explain decisions against her. Though she could never prove anything, she suspected that the scales had tipped for reasons unrelated to the evidence in her case. If true, Besen faced what experts say is one of the most troubling threats to our nation’s system of justice: judges, who, through incompetence, bias or outright corruption, prevent the wronged from getting a fair hearing in our courts.
“The decorum and bias and the perfectly unethical behavior of the judges is really rampant,” said Amanda Lundergan, a defense attorney in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, who confronted a nest of judicial conflicts in her state’s rapid-fire foreclosure rulings – dubbed the “rocket-docket” – following the housing market collapse. “It’s judicial bullying.”
Judges in local, state and federal courts across the country routinely hide their connections to litigants and their lawyers. These links can be social – they may have been law school classmates or share common friends – political, financial or ideological. In some instances the two may have mutual investment interests. They might be in-laws. Occasionally they are literally in bed together. While it’s unavoidable that such relationships will occur, when they do create a perception of bias, a judge is duty-bound to at the very least disclose that information, and if it is creates an actual bias, allow a different judge to take over.
All too often, however, the conflicted jurist says nothing and proceeds to rule in favor of the connected party, while the loser goes off without realizing an undisclosed bias doomed her case.
“Everybody should have the right to ensure the judge sitting on their case doesn’t have a conflict,” said Mary McQueen, executive director of the National Council on State Courts. “It’s absolutely imperative that people have full faith and confidence in the judicial process.”
‘Explain, defend or apologize’
Hundreds of judicial transgressions have been uncovered during the last decade, with results that cost the defeated litigants their home, business, custody, health or freedom.
Some of the best-known cases involve judges who ultimately did suffer consequences for their behavior, including Texas judge Christopher Dupuy, who bullied four lawyers who filed conflict-of-interest recusal motions between 2011 and 2013. Attorney Lori Laird asked that Dupuy bow out in 2013 because she’d represented Dupuy’s ex-wife in the couple’s custody battle in Galveston. The judge responded by slapping her with 37 counts of contempt, demanding that she “explain, defend or apologize” for her motion. He later sentenced her to 220 days in jail, although she didn’t serve any time.
“It was the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever seen,” Laird told Contently.org. “It also caused great damage to both of my clients.” Dupuy was admonished in November – after he’d already retired and was sentenced to two years’ probation for pleading guilty to misdemeanor counts of perjury and misuse of government property.
But court critics say that one reason judicial violations are common is because they frequently go unpunished. When litigants ask a judge to back away because of a conflict, they risk being told no, then face possible retaliation, so many don’t bother. If a litigant or an attorney files a complaint with an oversight body, there’s only about a 10% chance that state court authorities will properly investigate the allegation, according to a Contently.org analysis of data from 12 states.
The analysis shows that a dozen of these commissions collectively dismissed out of hand 90% of the complaints filed during the last five years, tossing 33,613 of 37,216 grievances without conducting any substantive inquiry. When they did take a look – 3,693 times between 2010 and 2014 – investigators found wrongdoing almost half the time, issuing disciplinary actions in 1,751 cases, about 47%.
The actions taken ranged from a letter of warning to censure, a formal sanction that indicates a judge is guilty of misconduct but does not merit suspension or removal.
Click To Learn MoreActually removing a judge was a rarity. Just 19 jurists in 12 states were ordered off the bench for malfeasance, which is about three per decade for each state. And even that result is becoming less common, with only one removal in 2014 and three in 2013 among all 12 states.
The states examined – California, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Indiana, Minnesota, Colorado, Washington, Georgia and South Carolina – were chosen because they comprise a representative sample from different populations and areas of the country and because they had matching data for the years 2010 through 2014.
California, which created the first judicial disciplinary body in the country in 1960, had a dismissal rate of 98%. It did not suspend or remove a single judge in 2013 or 2014 and acted just once over the last five years, removing a sitting judge in 2012. Colorado’s lone judicial action since 2010 was a suspension in 2013. Texas has not removed a judge in five years, though it has suspended 23 for varying lengths of time.
One discouraging factor is the secrecy under which these commissions operate. Allegations against a judge are commonly kept confidential unless a sanction of some kind is imposed. New York’s CJC, for example, is prevented by law from disclosing whether anyone has complained about a judge, discussing specific allegations, revealing what evidence might have been presented or what steps, if any, it took to investigative.
When conduct boards do act, the sanctions usually amount to an admonishment that may be embarrassing but costs the judge little.
Among those still on the bench after ethical violations are Louisiana judge Robin Free. Free oversaw a personal injury claim in 2010 by a man and his wife, Israel and Leslie Robles, who were hurt in an oil field run by Houston-based fracking contractor Integration Production Services, Inc. The trial had begun when the two sides agreed to a $1.2m settlement. As he mulled signing off on the deal, Free arranged for some post-trial R&R at Casa Bonita, a hunting and fishing ranch in George West, Texas, owned by the victims’ lawyer, David Rumley. He flew there aboard the Rumley firm’s private jet.
It wasn’t Free’s first ethical blunder. In 2001 he presided over a fouled-water case against Dow Chemical, trying to resolve the matter even as his mother was a member of the plaintiff’s class. Free is still serving on the bench after being docked 30 days pay in December and forking over a $6,723.64 fine.
Raoul Felder, the well-known New York divorce attorney, served as a CJC board member between 2004 and 2008, helping the commission sift through thousands of complaints. He came away from the experience perplexed by its decision-making.
“I wouldn’t say [the CJC] is toothless, but it’s arbitrary,” Felder said. “It can be unreasonably tough on judges who commit trivial offenses while going easy on judges who are really bizarrely out of the mainstream, doing things they shouldn’t be doing.”
Judicial discipline at the federal level is almost non-existent. A Contently.org examination of the most recent five years of complaint data shows that 5,228 grievances were lodged against federal jurists between 2010 and 2014, including 2,561 that specifically alleged bias or conflict of interest. But only three judges were disciplined during those years and each got the mildest rebuke on the books: censure or reprimand. None was suspended or removed.
The numbers suggest that at least some of these judges’ rulings did not pass the smell test: 4,168 of the dismissed complaints were tossed due to a lack of sufficient evidence, bringing up the possibility that some litigants raised valid concerns but failed to find definitive proof. FULL STORY

Judge + Prosecution Misconduct: Biased and Unbalanced Justice Examined
The REAL Cost of Courts that Allow Money, Greed and Corruption to Silence Justice
Most people have no idea how bad our justice system has become and rarely does it get into new. Such as the obvious wrongs like OJ Simpson buying his way out of accountability. What people suspect is actually very true and very out of control today.
We have a legal system designed by lawyers, run by lawyers who profit off a broken system which they’re totally aware of how dishonest it is. Yet they go home to their families each night after violating, abusing and destroying lives without really knowing the depth of how terrible their crimes are.
In my case there are judges, lawyers and government agencies that have been fully informed of elder abuse and over $200k in embezzeled bank funds, fraud, perjury and outright grand theft stealing. Yet none of them stop it or even consider doing the right thing. They all look at one thing, how much money these crimes can make for them.
The judge who gets a home loan to rule in favor of the guilty with money. The police who don’t want to get involved in anything within the court system no matter how wrong. Lawyers who are part of a organized gang which is more like the mafia then anything else.
WIth their selfish, greedy views they have no idea that what they do can totally destroy a live. It’s not just the money but what happens as the guilty parties now use these dishonest rulings to build their side of lies and manipulations to destroy anyone who tried to expose what they’ve done.
Whistleblower rights are bullshit and mean nothing if the organizations that run them don’t apply them. Imagine going to court to expose your own sister is a liar and fraud. A con-artist and psychopath who has always been a skilled manipulator of people and a charmer. What people don’t realize is a criminal is hiding behind a false image of “pretending to be a good child doing the right thing for Mama”. So they don’t investigate the facts, look deeper or even believe hard cold evidence or facts. In my case an entire petition was perjuried by Sylvia Schmidt of San Diego CA and Christopher Overgaard a dishonest Glendale CA lawyer.
The evidence was so obvious as was the motive by a child who never cared or took care of her mother her entire life. In fact the evidence of her obvious hate of everyone in her family and history of adultery, divorce and frioulous lawsuits was never looked into. When Sylvia was disinherited by her father who died around 2000 she did not want to accept she had obviously shown hatred to the man she ignore for over 35 years. It dawned on her that he mother one day would do the same thing to this “BAD SEED PSYHCOPATH CHILD”. So Sylvia and her husband Gary A. Schmidt cooked up a scheme to take over her mother’s life and estate. It started with burgarizing Gertrude Gettinger’s home SEE LAPD Report September 2005. From which Sylvia and Gary A. Schmidt used Identity theft to remove (2) bank accounts with about $200 thousand dollars to which they claimed creditors had removed the funds and blamed it on Robert Gettinger. The fact is there is no evidence any creditor removed the funds due to Robert nor did Robert owe any such money.
Yet when exposed and evidence was provided to the court in the form of a legal petition which exposed even more crimes such as claiming Robert was not living in the USA and Sylvia had no contact. Yet Sylvia Schmidt had Robert’s contact info and was in contact with Robert. There were recent recorded phone calls, holiday cards and cashed sisgned checks all proving Sylvia had contact. Yet the court did nothing, never stopping the forced conservatorship. Investigating the provided bank names and account numbers obviously never reported to the probate department or court.
Chistopoher Overgaard the lawyer and coward from Glendale CA would then bow out where Sylvia Schmidt would hire Philip Barabaro Jr. the President of the Pasadena Bar to begin a series of lies and manipulations using his illegal influence on totally dishonorable Judge Candace Joan Beason. Judge Beason would ignore all the evidence and blatently admit “she sees nothing wrong”. She would even allow the dishonest Sylvia Schmidt to file a writ against Robert Gettinger without notice to bill him for her legal fees.
There are literally volumes of evidence and abuse committed and documents via doctors, nursing home and mail fraud committed by Sylvia Schmidt. The problem is when reported nothing is done. They all use the fact it’s being handled by the court however a disfunctional, dishonest court system. So who polices the courts? Commission on Judicial Performance You can forget them, it’s a joke that when reported with result in a cut and paste general response (we found nothing wrong).
What happens when you do the right thing?
Nothing you’re ignored
Your attacked to silence you
They try and make you look like a slut or nuts (discredit you and character assasination)
Make you pay for your honesty sending you the bills
Lie to police claiming your a threat
The guilty go on covering things and commit even more crime and abuse
What does this do to the real victims? Well you’ll begin to feel hopeless, abused and depressed Welcome to Legal Abuse Syndrome “Warning: Protracted Litigation Can be Hazardous to Your Health”
So says Karin Huffer, whose experience as a marriage and family counselor in private practice and the wife of a businessman who was brutally defrauded in the courts uniquely qualifies her as an expert on the subject.
Huffer discovered that many of the legal system’s victims suffer from a variant of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which she has termed “Legal Abuse Syndrome.” The condition derives from the abusive and protracted litigation that many plaintiffs commonly encounter in the courts.
According to Huffer, you may be suffering from Legal Abuse Syndrome: 1) if you feel deeply disillusioned and oppressed as a result of your experience with the legal system; 2) if you have been frustrated in your effort to obtain justice; 3) if you feel your dreams and plans for your life were torn from you by a system that supposedly was there to protect your rights and property; 4) if you fear that the system will defeat you at every turn and there is nothing you can do about it; and 5) if you feel you have been victimized several times over by the perpetrators, by lawyers, judges, bailiffs and other court personnel. As a consequence, you may suffer from tension and anxiety and have recurring nightmares, and you may also feel emotionally and physically exhausted, numb, disconnected and vulnerable.
Huffer does not call for sweeping reforms of the judicial system to eliminate the corruption that underlies its various abuses. She is no firebrand. Instead, as a dedicated health-care professional, she has concerned herself with helping the stricken to cope with their psychosocial problems — to accept what they cannot change and enable them to function once more as normal, productive individuals.
To this end, she has written a pioneering book that addresses the plight of legal abuse victims from a psychological, therapeutic perspective. Her objective is to move the victim beyond his or her predicament and toward a more positive way of thinking and behavior. Huffer illustrates her approach with the cases of seven victims who suffer from Legal Abuse Syndrome, detailing their pain and anguish and the various stages of the therapy they have undergone to recover their emotional health. While the eight-step program she describes may not remove the thorn from the hearts of legal abuse victims, it will deaden the pain and help sufferers rechannel any destructive thoughts they may harbor.
Karin Huffer (1995)
Despite her mental-health orientation, Huffer is well aware of the troubling conditions that exist in modern American society. On one hand, trusting citizens have been taught they can rely upon Constitutionally protected rights to safeguard them against criminal activity. However, betrayals by lawyers and the failure of courts to provide basic due process rights have assaulted their sensibilities, ignited their rage and turned them into victims and even vigilantes. Clearly, we have entered a time when more vigorous solutions are called for than just compassionate psychoanalgesia. SEE ORIGINAL STORY

If the American people only knew half the corruption and waste going on in Los Angeles County Sheriff department. They would understand how psychopaths and sociopaths hide behind shinny stars and fancy uniforms. How the top Cop Sheriff Lee Baca was facing prison time and like a coward claimed old age and alzheimer’s meant he was not guilty. Over paid, generous benefit means nothing to this gang of thieves who will stop at nothing to get away with their crimes, abuse and murder.

Ramón Bojórquez Salcido is a convicted Mexican-American mass murderer and as of 2017 is on death row in California’s San Quentin State Prison. He was convicted for the 1989 murders of seven people, including his wife and two of his daughters, four-year-old Sofía and 22-month-old Teresa.
This checklist identifies the following as the symptomsand signs of psychopathy:
Superficial charm and glibness.
Inflated sense of self-worth.
Constant need for stimulation.
Conning others; being manipulative.
Lack of remorse or guilt.
Callousness; lack of empathy.
Sociopaths are often called psychopaths and vice versa but there are differences between a psychopath and a sociopath. Psychopaths, for example, are far more likely to get in trouble with the law while sociopaths are much more likely to blend in with society. And while sociopaths and psychopaths do share some traits, sociopathy (antisocial personality disorder) is generally considered less severe than psychopathy.
What is a Sociopath?
A sociopath is actually a person with antisocial personality disorder. Antisocial personality disorder is defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (the book which contains the diagnostic criteria for mental illnesses) as a cluster B personality disorder (those that are dramatic or emotional).
While sociopathy can only be diagnosed at the age of 18 or above, the following must be present before the age of 15 for the diagnosis:
Repeated violations of the law
Pervasive lying and deception
Reckless disregard for safety of self or others
Consistent irresponsibility in work and family environments
Lack of remorse
Psychopath vs. Sociopath
Psychopathy can be thought of as a more severe form of sociopathy with more symptoms. Therefore, all psychopaths are sociopaths but sociopaths are not necessarily psychopaths.
While the traits of each may seem similar, it is thought that sociopaths have a less severe form of lack of empathy and lack of guilt. It is thought that sociopaths may be able to form some deep bonds (such as, possibly, with family) while a psychopath cannot (Can Psychopaths Love, Cry and Experience Joy?). Moreover, while a sociopath would feel no guilt about hurting a stranger, they may feel guilt and remorse over hurting someone with which they share a bond. Additionally, it appears that some of the very antisocial behavior in sociopaths lessens over time while this cannot be said of psychopaths (How To Recognize and Identify Psychopathic Behavior). Psychopaths appear to have no concern whatsoever of the consequences, while a sociopath may learn to avoid consequences over time by reducing antisocial behavior.
Finally, the presentation of one with psychopathy or sociopathy differs. According to Kelly McAleer, Psy.D,
“The psychopath is callous, yet charming. He or she will con and manipulate others with charisma and intimidation and can effectively mimic feelings to present as “normal” to society. The psychopath is organized in their criminal thinking and behavior, and can maintain good emotional and physical control, displaying little to no emotional or autonomic arousal, even under situations that most would find threatening or horrifying. The psychopath is keenly aware that what he or she is doing is wrong, but does not care.
“Conversely, the sociopath is less organized in his or her demeanor; he or she might be nervous, easily agitated, and quick to display anger. A sociopath is more likely to spontaneously act out in inappropriate ways without thinking through the consequences. Compared to the psychopath, the sociopath will not be able to move through society committing callous crimes as easily, as they can form attachments and often have ‘normal temperaments.’ . . .”
Both psychopaths and sociopaths are capable of committing horrific crimes, but a sociopath is less likely to commit them against those with whom there is a bond.
FACT: Sociopath/Psychopath Hide behind False Images and Positions of Authority
My experience with psychopaths and narcissism began the day I was born. Growing up I had no idea what was in store for me or who I was dealing with. The fact was both my sister and mother were very different from normal. While my mother acted like a loving kind woman there was another side of her most people were unaware of. My sister even as a child had an evil side which my mother noticed but did not understand at the time.
As I got older I was told of accounts of jealousy by my sister Sylvia Gettinger aka Sylvia Schmidt where she would try to shove me as an infant off the side of a bed to take over. Then there was the event of her ripping a toy from my hands and slapping me across the face. I never could understand this hate, anger or jealously I was born into.
Yet growing up time and time again events such as this occurred. I quickly became aware of Sylvia’s manipulation and con-artist tactics. Then there was her total lack of empathy and love. She could be a stone cold vicious beast and then all of a sudden act as if she cared.
We were never close because she lacked the capacity to show love or be loved this was very apparent. She drove our family apart when our father Franz L. Gettinger figured out there was something really wrong with her. She took advantage of our mother Gertrude Gettinger any way she could and any chance she had. Yet one could easily see there was no love or kindness for her own mother or sibling.
Our father finally divorces our mother back in the 70’s when it finally became too much to handle. Years later I really began to understand why our father left. Our mother was a narcissist who always had to have her way. Worse she always had to have someone to blame. She would blame you if you did as she asked and blame you if you did not. There was not right thing to do with this woman it was always her way or the highway. The point is anyone being in a relationship with her would end up being mentally abused with her rants. When our father and mother separated Sylvia’s hate and manipulations came out full force. Sylvia would attack the man any time he arrived to visit even baring gifts. I recall Christmas when He arrived with two gifts for us and handed them to each of us. Sylvia threw hers bahck at him and began cussing at him in the worst, profane degrading language I’ve ever heard. Our father so disgusted by the obvious disrespect for his kindness became too much and he slapped Sylvia across the face. She would use this one event the rest of her life to hate her own father and stoke the flames of hurt with her mother.
Guilty Killer Chicago Cop Jason Van Dyke
Officer Jason Van Dyke is a perfect example of the problem person that easily gets hired and then hides behind a fancy uniform and shinny tin Badge. Police Unions have striped citizens of their rights by giving police too much protection to the point they can kill without any accountability. The fact the incident was recordered on video helped prosecute officer Jason Van Dyke who perjured his report and statements when looking at murder charges. This happens every time police kill someone, they’re not treated the way the public is. Worse they’re given a chance to create a story and change the facts to fit their warped reality.
The entire Police Officer’s Bill of Right’s and Police Unions are designed to help dishonest Police escape prosecutuon or accountability. It’s time the tax payer stops being extorted out of billions of dollars in legal fees, pensions, paid vacations after they kill and victim pay outs. Police and their families must be held personally liable. NO MORE IMMUNITY WHEN THEY COMMIT A CRIME, ANY CRIME.
THE PROBLEM WITH POLICE TODAY IS “TOO MUCH PROTECTION” WHICH HAS CREATED A PUBLIC THREAT AND UNFAIR ADVANTAGE
The Police Officers Bill of Rights
Law Enforcement Officer’s Bill of Rights
Note these made up rights to help a bad cop escape justice supercede the United States Bill of Rights
Law enforcement officers, except when on duty or acting in an official capacity, have the right to engage in political activity or run for elective office.
Law enforcement officers shall, if disciplinary action is expected, be notified of the investigation, the nature of the alleged violation, and be notified of the outcome of the investigation and the recommendations made to superiors by the investigators.
Questioning of the law enforcement officer should take place at the offices of those conducting the investigation or at the place where the officer reports to work, unless the officer consents to another location.
Law enforcement officers will be questioned by a single investigator, and he or she shall be informed of the name, rank, and command of the officer conducting the investigation.
Law enforcement officers under investigation are entitled to have counsel or any other individual of their choice present at the interrogation
Law enforcement officers cannot be threatened, harassed, or promised rewards to induce the answering of any question.
Law enforcement officers are entitled to a hearing, with notification in advance of the date, access to transcripts, and other relevant documents and evidence generated by the hearing and to representation by counsel or another non-attorney representative at the hearing.
Law enforcement officers shall have the opportunity to comment in writing on any adverse materials placed in his or her personnel file.
Law enforcement officers cannot be subject to retaliation for the exercise of these or any other rights under Federal, or State.
The three men were charged with conspiracy, misconduct and obstruction of justice for filing false reports in Van Dyke’s case, but the newly unsealed document points to numerous other unnamed officers who were at the scene or involved in the ensuing investigation of the shooting who allegedly worked to protect Van Dyke.

Killing innocent people and then covering it up with lies, manipulation of facts, character assassination has become the norm for Killer cops, police unions, courts and government. (Who work together scratching each other’s backs when they’re exposed?)
Balch Springs Texas Killer cop Roy Oliver is the typical trigger happy, reckless, unfit sociopath that finds his way into an authority position. It’s never been about hatiing all cops but when they help the bad ones to continue to kill and abuse the public they become accessories to their crimes. The scam and ploy is for the bad cops and their supporters to pretend the haters hate all cops.
Thousands of people are murdered by police who then investigate themselves and create their own outcome. See Killed by Police
Millions of people get abused each year and attempt to file complaints and are met by more dishonest police who have no business investigating or punishing their own. No second chances when deadly force is involved, how hard is that to understand? American’s don’t that they wear a badge; fact is any idiot today can get hired and there is proof of that.
The false image that police academies turn out a better cop is a downright lie, Trash in trash out you’ve only hidden the scum behind a fancy uniform and pinned a shinny tin badge on them. It’s understandable bad cops get hired but not when someone reports their abuse, is victimized by them and nothing is done.
The fact is most of the time when exposed, bad cops are allowed to retire, resign to escape all accountability and punishment. Their allowed to go on working at another department where they continue to kill, lie, rob and abuse the system. As they say “A leopard never changes his spots” and as well sociopaths, control freaks, bullies, criminals without records and insecure authority seekers with ego issues must be weeded out and banned from any authority roles period.
Why is it so easy to get deadly force and authority with only about 6 months of training? Ever notice the first thing police do when arriving at almost any scene is to recklessly pull a firearm? Shooting into homes killing victims then rationalizing it all with the bullshit excuse “we feared or I feared for my fellow officer”. How do we justify 6 months of training makes a life more valuable? When is enough, enough? They system is broken and how many thousands of murdered innocent people will it take till the government changes law, immunity and the process of rewarding murder?
Texas police officer faces a life sentence after his conviction for murder Tuesday in the shooting death of an unarmed 15-year-old black honor roll student, multiple media outlets report.
Former Balch Springs officer Roy Oliver fired five shots into a car, striking and killing Jordan Edwards as he and a group of teens were driving away from a party in April 2017, according to Dallas TV station WFAA. Oliver had claimed he fired the shots in order to stop the vehicle from running over his partner.
Earlier, both Oliver and his fellow officer, Tyler Gross, had playfully interacted with teens at the party after responding to neighbors’ complaints that high school students appeared to be drinking alcohol at the event, reports The Washington Post. But no alcohol was found, and conflict only arose after shots were overheard from a nearby parking lot, sending the revelers out into the residential street.
Testimony showed that Oliver went to the patrol car to retrieve his gun while Gross stopped one car as it was leaving, then attempted to stop another in which Edwards was a passenger, according to The Post. Oliver said he heard Gross reading the second vehicle’s license plate into a police radio, then Gross broke a window of the vehicle as he ordered the driver to stop.
Oliver approached and then fired five shots within one second at the vehicle, hitting Edwards in the head as Edwards advised his fellow passengers to “duck, get down,” The Post reports,
Jurors who deliberated for 14 hours rejected Oliver’s defense that he was protecting Gross, who said in court that he did not fear for his life nor feel the need to grab his own weapon, reports NBC News.
“I just wanted them to stop,” Gross testified, according to WFAA. “I was not in fear at that point.”
Defense attorney Jim Lane nonetheless argued during his closing argument that Oliver fired to defend his partner, reports The Post. “He wanted to be a protector,” Lane said.
In a tweet, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wrote: “This life should never have been lost.”
This was not an accident, it was a reckless action by a careless trigger happy monster who has no business with a badge or any deadly force.
Truth is American police have become militarized and trigger happy with total recklessness and abandon for life
NO JUSTICE UNTIL THE PUNISHMENT FITS THE CRIME
Before You start celebrating and think justice has been served, while you or I would be looking at death row or a long prision term. Police Unions, the courts and government (using your tax dollars) will become accessories to helping their own escape accountability and equal punishment.
It should also be exposed police all over America don’t want the public to know the image on TV and Movies is all glorified entertainment hype and BS. The image sold to the public that cops go thru lots of training and produces super protectors nothing more than propaganda. Fact is most are under trained, under qualified and unfit, but the goal is to find someone to fill the ranks, does not question what their told and goes scam. Speak out or try and fix it and your black balled.
The sad truth is had their been no body or dash cam footage officers would have perjured everything and manipulated the facts and evidence like common criminals looking at murder charges do. This is why police don’t like or want cameras, not because it really helps as evidence but because they can’t dispute it by lying and perjured police reports.
They Hire Monsters, they don’t just train them to Kill Jonathan Roselle Murdered Joseph Santos
South Whitehall Township police officer charged with voluntary manslaughter in the July 28 shooting death knew immediately afterward that his actions would come under scrutiny, according to Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin.
Jonathan Roselle, 33, had been with the force since December and only on patrol by himself for five months.
Roselle told another officer at the scene that he thought he “f—ed up,” according to court records. Roselle added he “didn’t know what to do,” and said he should have just stayed in his police vehicle, according to the records.
Martin confirmed that Joseph Santos, 44, of Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., was not armed when Roselle fired five shots at him. He said Santos’ last words were to the officer aiming the gun at him: “Don’t do it.”
n his final moments, Joseph Santos asked for help even as he frightened a motorist by jumping on her moving car on Hamilton Boulevard. That offense brought him face to face with a rookie South Whitehall Township police officer, whose order to “get on the ground” he ignored.
Walking toward Officer Jonathan Roselle, Santos, who clearly had no weapon, uttered his last words. “Don’t do it,” he pleaded, as Roselle unloaded five shots.
Seven months after joining the police department, Roselle, a 33-year-old Army veteran of Afghanistan, was charged Tuesday with voluntary manslaughter and surrendered to authorities.
At a news conference Tuesday, Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin called Santos’ July 28 death unjustified, based on the findings of a state police investigation.
“This was an act of a relatively inexperienced officer who held a subjective fear for his own safety, but he made a decision which objectively was unreasonable in light of the facts,” Martin said.
Roselle, who was hired in December and had been on patrol by himself for only five months, questioned his own actions immediately, according to court documents.
He told an officer and then a supervisor who arrived on the scene that he thought he “f—ed up,” the documents note.
Martin confirmed that Santos, 44, of Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., was not armed.
He said police interviewed 11 witnesses, finding that Santos was jumping and pounding on cars and asking some motorists for help. Not everything Santos was saying was captured on the officer’s bodycam or car dashcam, Martin said, but he was heard pleading to Roselle, “Don’t do it,” before being shot.
Calling Roselle “trigger happy,” Arlene Figueroa, the mother of one of Santos’ children, asked why he was allowed to work without a partner, given that he was too inexperienced to handle stressful situations.
East Pittsburgh Police Officer Michael Rosfeld MURDERED 17-year old Antwon Rose Jr.
Americans MUST accept these types of monsters get hired or put in place on a daily basis as Police, Judges, Prosecutors, DA’s, lawyers and government. It’s a broken system that looks the other way in order for psychopaths, sociopaths, killers, control freaks, liars and con-artists to get hired and move their way up the ladder.
When victims come forward they’re made into the villians and terrorized, abused and victimized by a system based on greed, profit and dishonesty. Dishonorable judges mean NOT JUSTICE in our courts always blaming it on law which lawyers and judges create in order to escape accountability and prosecution.
Perjury, ignoring crime and law is common among judges and courts today when it comes to profit and bribary. Thousands of victims every year go to court at insane cost only to find out there is no justice due to a judge that ignores evidence, facts and law.
East Pittsburgh Police Officer Michael Rosfeld is charged with one count of criminal homicide in the shooting death of 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr. But the real problem will be holding him accountable and prosecuting him fairly and equally. Immunity in the hands of monsters like this ultimately means he’ll escape justice and get away with murder.
The charge against East Pittsburgh Officer Michael Rosfeld is outlined in a criminal complaint that says the officer first told investigators that 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr. turned his hand toward him when he ran from the car and he “saw something dark he perceived as a gun.” During a second recap of the shooting, Rosfeld told investigators he did not see a gun and he was not sure if the teen’s arm was pointed at him when he fired.
You can’t take someone’s life under these circumstances,” Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala said at a news conference.
The 30-year-old officer turned himself in Wednesday morning, was arraigned and released on $250,000 bond. Rosfeld, who was sworn in just hours before the shooting but had been working at the police department for a couple weeks, is scheduled to appear in court July 6, according to Mike Manko, a spokesman for the District Attorney’s Office
Manko said that criminal homicide can include any instance where someone knowingly, intentionally, recklessly or negligently causes the death of another person, and includes the charges of murder, voluntary and involuntary manslaughter.
