Isn't killing animals the first step to becoming a serial killer?

 

Maine police officers who beat porcupines to death while on duty sentenced to jail time

 

wo former Rockland officers were sentenced Thursday for beating porcupines to death on several different occasions while on duty.

 

Addison Cox, 28, of Warren, and Michael A. Rolerson, 31, of Searsmont, were sentenced in Knox Superior Court on misdemeanor charges of cruelty to animals and night hunting, according to court documents. Both officers pleaded guilty.

 

Cox was sentenced to 90 days in jail, with all but 10 suspended. He was fined $1,000 and was placed on administrative release for six months, during which he is barred from applying for jobs in law enforcement and must complete 100 hours of community service, court documents state.

 

Rolerson was sentenced to 270 days in jail, with all but 20 days suspended. He was also fined $1,000 and placed on probation for six months. The terms of his probation require that he give up his Maine Criminal Justice Academy Credentials.

 

Rolerson received a heavier sentence than Cox because he was the senior officer and killed more animals, District Attorney Natasha Irving said. Prosecutors agreed to reduce the charges to misdemeanors in part because both men were military veterans who had served active duty, Irving said.

 

Rolerson has previously told investigators he has post-traumatic stress disorder from serving in the Marine Corps in Afghanistan. Cox also served in the Marine Corps in Afghanistan. Irving said both men are receiving treatment from the Veterans’ Administration.

 

“That was a mitigating factor, that they both experienced war zones,” Irving said. “Ultimately I want them never to hurt another living thing again [] I think that addressing the mental health component, I think that’s a really important part of it.”

Pretty accurate it appears. Looks Covid was the #1 killer of cops last year according to a few studies.  One article I read said that dying from Covid is considered LOD with proper documentation.

Too bad they can't just accuse COVID of resisting arrest and then shoot it or suffocate it.

And yet cops stayed not wearing masks during the pandemic. It was 50-50 whenever I saw them responding.

Big Brother is watching you...

 

Pasco Sheriff’s Office letter targets residents for ‘increased accountability’

 

It starts like an offer of admission from a prestigious university.

 

“We are pleased to inform you that you have been selected…” it says.

 

But the four-page letter from the Pasco Sheriff’s Office goes on to tell recipients they will be facing enhanced police scrutiny under the agency’s controversial intelligence program.

 

“You may wonder why you were enrolled in this program,” the letter continues. “You were selected as a result of an evaluation of your recent criminal behavior using an unbiased, evidence-based risk assessment designed to identify prolific offenders in our community. As a result of this designation, we will go to great efforts to encourage change in your life through enhanced support and increased accountability.”

 

Last year, a Tampa Bay Times investigation revealed that the Sheriff’s Office creates lists of people it considers likely to break the law based on criminal histories, social networks and other unspecified intelligence. The agency sends deputies to their homes repeatedly, often without a search warrant or probable cause for an arrest.

 

Targets and their relatives, including four who are now suing the Sheriff’s Office in federal court, described the tactics as harassment and a violation of their constitutional rights. National policing experts drew comparisons to child abuse and surveillance that could be expected under an authoritarian regime.

 Officers Sanad Musallam and Yaser Shohatee allegedly “targeted“ the girl, with the two going on to exchange hundreds of sexually explicit phone calls, texts, and photos with her between 2015 and 2016.

The legal age of consent in New York is 17. The officers were never criminally charged, however, as the teen refused to cooperate with the DA’s office, the New York Post reports.

Who cares if the victim doesn't cooperate. How you going to not charge these assholes?

Yeah, having trouble understanding "it's rape, because she cannot consent, but can't be prosecuted, because she doesn't want us to."

First responders in Sherbrooke, Que., apologize after mistaking fire victim for mannequin

 

The heads of the police and fire departments in Sherbrooke, Que., held a sombre news conference Thursday afternoon, apologizing and then explaining the circumstances that led them to mistake a woman's burnt body for a mannequin before disposing of it in a dumpster at a police station. 

 

Details of the mishandled remains emerged Thursday morning, nearly a week after the events took place, prompting the first responder services to address reporters Thursday afternoon in the Eastern Townships city about 150 km southeast of Montreal.

 

Danny McConnell, the Sherbrooke police chief, said on July 23 at around 10 a.m. firefighters received a call about a small brush fire near a factory on Cabana Street.

 

"When they arrived, witnesses declared that someone had lit a silicone mannequin on fire," McConnell said, adding that, at that point, firefighters requested assistance from police. 

 

"After discussions between the two departments, it was agreed that the mannequin would be disposed of in the container at the Sherbrooke police service, which cannot be accessed by members of the public."

 

Four hours after firefighters did so, at 2:15 p.m., a man filed a missing person report for his partner. Police then tracked the woman's cellphone signal to her car, which was parked on Cabana Street, near the site of the fire.

 

"A police officer who intervened earlier raised the coincidence insightfully," McConnell said. Police retrieved the so-called mannequin from the container and were able to identify it as the body of the missing woman.

Guilty until proven innocent...

 

She Flagged Down Cops for Help. She Was Handcuffed and Forced to Strip.

 

When a Scottsdale, Arizona, woman flagged down the police for help finding the person responsible for smashing in her car windshield, she never expected to be the one arrested. But officers handcuffed her, had her strip naked back at the station, and drew blood from her—all for a crime she didn’t commit.

 

The woman, Yessenia Garcia, was eventually cleared of all charges, thanks to the work of a defense attorney. But Garcia’s mugshot, which police posted online the day of her arrest, can still be found on the internet. She also says police never got to the bottom of who stomped on her windshield the night she was arrested.

 

“I had sleeping issues for a bit,” she said. “They didn’t drop those charges until about a month later. So for that time, it was so scary not knowing what was to come. It was really difficult to just sit on it.” 

 

In May of last year, Garcia and a friend returned to her parked vehicle after a night out and found the front windshield badly cracked. Looking for help, her friend flagged down a nearby bike cop, officer Nicolas Fay. But the two didn’t receive the assistance they were looking for.

 

“Here’s the deal. We kind of already know what’s going on,” one of the officers on the scene told them, according to body cam footage provided to VICE News by Garcia’s defense attorney Ryan Tait. “This could be a serious thing if you lie about it.”

 

“Your car was just involved in a hit-and-run collision where a pedestrian was hit,” Scottsdale police supervisor Sgt. Ben Steel continued as Fay began to read Garcia her Miranda Rights. “And don’t make faces like you don’t know what I’m talking about.”

 

For 45 minutes, Garcia tried to explain to police that she wasn’t the person they were looking for and asked them to question nearby security guards and check any available surveillance tapes to corroborate her story. Her friend showed officers card transactions that had taken place moments before proving they were at a nearby bar. 

 

But the officers ignored her and insisted they’d watched the car pull up to the parking space on camera a few minutes prior. Officers also claimed that the hood of the car was warm, which proved it had been driven recently, and that Garcia’s clothing was covered in broken glass.

 

“They completely fabricated the notion that there was glass in her shirt,” Tait said. “I don’t know if there were flecks of some kind of material that had a shimmer in the shirt or something. But very clearly there was no glass in her shirt.”

 

Had police considered what Garcia suggested, her arrest likely could have been avoided.  Security video later obtained by Tait not only showed that his client’s car never moved from the parking space where the arrest took place but also that a stranger hopped onto the hood of Garcia’s car and stomped on her windshield multiple times nearly an hour before Garcia returned.

 

The video evidence directly disproved a police report of the incident obtained by local ABC affiliate KNXV, which first reported the story. According to the outlet, the report says that a review of available video evidence “was inconclusive” in proving Garcia’s car wasn’t involved in the hit-and-run, because of the camera’s constant pan to the left and right.

Hundreds of cases are being reviewed after police officers involved were relieved of duty over racist and anti-Semitic messages

 

Two former officers with the Torrance Police Department were charged Thursday with vandalism for allegedly spray-painting an impounded vehicle with a swastika, authorities said.

 

In addition, Torrance Police Chief Jeremiah Hart said that he has relieved 13 other officers of their duty because of an ongoing investigation into messages that he characterized as "racism and hatred."


Former officers Christopher Tomsic, 29, and Cody Weldin, 28, were charged with one felony count each of vandalism and conspiracy to commit vandalism, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. Both men pleaded not guilty to the charges, it said.


On January 27, 2020, Tomsic and Weldin were allegedly among a group of officers responding to a police call regarding stolen mail, the DA's office said. The former officers were led to a vehicle and allegedly ordered for it to be impounded to a tow yard, according to the D.A.'s office. When the owner of the vehicle arrived to pick up the car, he found a happy face spray-painted on the front passenger seat, a swastika symbol spray-painted on the rear seat, and other items strewn throughout the vehicle, the statement said.


The two men were terminated in March 2020, the police chief said.


At a joint news conference with the police chief, District Attorney George Gascón said the other Torrance officers who were suspended were "exchanging racist, discriminatory, homophobic and anti-Semitic messages."


The District Attorney's office has identified hundreds of cases in which the officers were involved, he said, and they will be reviewed that no other misconduct occurred.
