Post Date: 2017-12-06 14:09:10 by Gatlin
Morganfield Police Officer, Eric McCallister, walked into his job at the Morganfield Police Department like any other day on Saturday morning, November 25. McCallister was in the middle of being briefed by the third shift officer when a call came in over the radio. There was a suicidal subject in Whispering Meadows. The location of this call would normally be handled only by the sheriff's office since it is outside the jurisdiction for the police department, but there is certain criteria that can be met for a police officer to go out of jurisdiction. Since the call was over a suicidal subject, the protocol is to have two officers to back each other up in case there is a firearm or the ...

Albuquerque, New Mexico (CNN)Police officers will often tell you there's no such thing as a routine call when you're patrolling the streets. But when Albuquerque police officer Ryan Holets responded to a possible theft at a nearby convenience store, it had all the hallmarks of a mundane assignment he could quickly clear from the call log. It didn't turn out that way. As Ryan left the convenience store on September 23, he noticed out of the corner of his eye a couple sitting on the grass against a cement wall. It appeared the man and woman were shooting up heroin in broad daylight behind the convenience store. Ryan turned on his body camera and approached the couple but he ...

Post Date: 2017-11-03 17:35:49 by cranky
In a rare move, the NYPD will internally try two Brooklyn cops accused of raping a prisoner before their criminal trial takes place, the Daily News has learned. Police Officers Edward Martins and Richard Hall are charged with raping and kidnapping an 18-year-old woman they picked up for drug possession in Brooklyn on Sept. 15. Martins, 37, and Hall, 32, who have already been demoted from the rank of detective, say they had consensual sex with the teenager.

The near-universal outrage surrounding the arrest of Alex Wubbels, the Salt Lake City nurse who was arrested July 26 for refusing to let police officers draw blood from an unconscious crash victim, empowered Wubbels and her attorney to threaten legal action against the police on CNNs New Day on Monday. At the very least, Wubbels says, shed like to re-educate the police department on proper procedure. Prospective students are advised to steer clear of Wubbels courses. Despite reams of inaccurate reporting on the incident, Wubbels was likely legally wrong to obstruct the police officer. The case is a much closer one than it appears. In a widely-seen ...
