A sheriff’s deputy in Southern #California is accused of burglarizing a home that he previously responded to in reference to a death investigation.
"The Orange County Sheriff’s Department says Deputy Steve Hortz, a 12-year veteran with the department, responded to the Yorba Linda home on July 20 regarding a man in his 70s who died from apparent natural causes.
On Wednesday, the sheriff’s department says it was contacted by an attorney representing the family estate who reported items missing from the home.
The lawyer also provided home surveillance video that captured Deputy Hortz entering the home without permission on at least three separate occasions and exiting with stolen property."

JSO officer arrested for sexual misconduct with a minor
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has announced the arrest of a patrol officer David Gedert Tuesday afternoon for sexual misconduct with a victim less than 13-years-old.
Now now, don’t jump to any conclusions. I’m sure there’s a perfectly good explanation for this...and if there isn’t we all know that we can trust in the system that there will be swift justice

By "died" they meant to say "was murdered."
"Jozef Chovanec, a 38-year old Slovakian citizen, was arrested at Charleroi airport in February 2018 after causing a disturbance while boarding a flight to Bratislava. Taken to a cell, he started banging his head against a wall, causing bleeding.
On Wednesday video images emerged showing how he was pinned down in the cell by six police officers. One officer sat on his rib cage for 16 minutes, according to Het Laatse Nieuws, which obtained the footage.
The officers laughed 'exuberantly' while one danced and made a Nazi salute, according to a doctor’s report. A blanket was over Chovanec’s face for some time. Chovanec died in hospital the following day."

Once again we will be mounting resistance against this War on the Poor by our local governments and police departments. This Monday they will be attempting to demolish People’s homes, trash their belongings, and forcibly remove people who literally have nowhere else to go. Not only is this inhumane but it also puts their entire community at risk and the rest of our great city at risk. This is immoral. It is unjust. And even my 4 year old son knows it’s just wrong! Come stand with us! Come Fight with us! We need people willing to peacefully resist with us by putting our bodies on the line. Please, come stand in Solidarity with our Unhoused Family ✊
Here are the Federal CDC guidelines regarding Encampments that city/local governments are supposed to follow (word for word from the CDC website:
“Considerations for encampments:
• If individual housing options are not available, allow people who are living unsheltered or in encampments to remain where they are.
◦ Clearing encampments can cause people to disperse throughout the community and break connections with service providers. This increases the potential for infectious disease spread.
• Encourage those staying in encampments to set up their tents/sleeping quarters with at least 12 feet x 12 feet of space per individual.
◦ If an encampment is not able to provide sufficient space for each person, allow people to remain where they are but help decompress the encampment by linking those at higher risk for severe illness to individual rooms or safe shelter.
Our local governments have refused to this or any of the other things they’re supposed to do according to the federal government, despite admissions from elected officials that they already have the funding allotted to do so. And for those involved in conducting these raids, at every level (politicians, police, city workers), they have all admitted that raids don’t work and that each one costs over $100,000 in tax payer dollars. We need those resources to be redirected into services that actually help these folks, NOT wasted on making their already difficult lives even harder. Come make a stand with us!

Los oficiales de #LVMPD le dicen a dos jóvenes que no están siendo detenidos, pero también les dicen que no pueden irse. Luego le mienten a su familia, declarando que habían aceptado voluntariamente quedarse. Los detenidos contradicen esa mentira al confirmar que querían irse. Los policías nuevamente intentan mentir y decirle a la familia que los jóvenes tienen que hablar con los detectives.

LVMPD officers tell two young men that they are not being detained, but also tell them that they cannot leave. They then lie to their family, stating that they had voluntarily agreed to stay. The detainees contradict that lie by confirming that they wanted to leave. The cops again try to lie and tell the family that the young men have to talk to detectives.

Even after stating that he had not committed a crime and "wasn't in trouble" several #LVMPD officers forcibly detain a man, who had been legally and peacefully walking on the Las Vegas Strip (on a public sidewalk) then arrest him and file charges of "resisting arrest" against him.

As we consider the social and political upheaval of 2020 in America, we're looking back at Odo's work on DS9.
In "What Happened In Vegas," director Ramsey Denison exposed some of the many cover-ups and corruption of the LVMPD and the "powers that be" in Las Vegas. His follow-up documentary, "Money Machine," continues along that path while shining a light on the Las Vegas Mass Shooting carried out by Stephen Paddock on 1 October during the 2017 Route 91 Harvest Festival.
Using live footage taken from cell phones, bodycams, and surveillance cameras, as well as eyewitness accounts of victims, it starts out showing, up close and personal, the chaos that happened that night. Then it progresses through the aftermath revealing the rush to close the book on this chapter of Las Vegas' history and return to a semblance of normal on the Las Vegas Strip in order to "keep the cash registers ringing."
Along the way, the incomplete and oftentimes intentionally deceptive methods of investigation used by Las Vegas police to hide their own incompetence and carelessness, as well as that of the casinos and hotel security, that allowed it to happen are clearly illustrated. For those familiar with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, it is a scenario that has been witnessed all too often in this city writ large, with tragic and still unresolved consequences this time around.
"Money Machine" is currently available for streaming via Theatrical-At-Home here: https://theatricalathome.com/products/money-machine

"Money Machine" is the newest documentary by Ram Denison, the director of "What Happened In Vegas," which won numerous awards while exposing rampant corruption within the LVMPD. Much like its predecessor, Money Machine explores cover-ups by the Las Vegas police, as well as the reasons behind them. However, this time the focus is on the events during and after the 1 October 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival across from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
The movie is now available via Theatrical-At-Home at this link:
Some of the articles that have been written about the film are linked below. They include rave reviews from well respected publications, such as Film Threat (who gave the movie a rare 10 out of 10 rating). Also Forbes, who premiered the trailer, gave the documentary an "A" rating.

On the 4th of July, which is this coming Saturday, a local group, "Organize The State Out" has put out a call to the community to participate in what they are calling the "People's Forum & Occupation". This event is scheduled to take place 7pm that day at the Headquarters of the LVMPD.

Bodycam footage released as the result of public records requests shows officers from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department shooting at protesters with rubber bullets and teargas. SWAT team members Detective Zachary Baro and Officer Jamie Chatman can also be heard laughing and joking about shooting rubber bullets directly at the protesters.
Via the Miami Herald:
"Fort Lauderdale Police Department officers laughed and celebrated after shooting protesters with rubber bullets at a May 31 George Floyd rally in Fort Lauderdale, newly released body camera footage shows.
'Beat it, little f**ker,' Detective Zachary Baro, leader of a Fort Lauderdale SWAT team unit, can be heard saying after officers shot 'less lethal' projectiles at a protester. The protester was walking away after tossing a tear gas canister back at the line of police.
A few minutes later, another officer, Jamie Chatman, came up to Baro behind the police line and asked if his body camera was off. Baro replied — incorrectly — that his camera was in 'stand-by' mode and not recording. The two officers then began laughing and joking about the people they had shot with rubber bullets.
'Did you see me f**k up those motherf**kers?' one of the officers said.
'I got the one f**ker,' the other replied amid laughter."
This is the same protest in which LaToya Ratlieff suffered a fractured skull and had to receive twenty stiches after being shot in the face by a rubber bullet. Currently, she is still unable to see out of one eye, as a result.
In addition, this is also the protest that Officer Steven Pohorence violently pushed a woman who was kneeling down amongst a group of protesters. Pohorence has since been charged with battery for that attack.
Jorge Gómez estaba legalmente armado cerca de la corte federal de los Estados Unidos después de una protesta de Black Lives Matter en el centro de Las Vegas. Poco después, un oficial de LVMPD comenzó a dispararle municiones "menos letales". Para evitar eso, comenzó a correr hacia donde estaba estacionado su automóvil.
Desafortunadamente, no llegó muy lejos antes de que otros cuatro policías de Metro lo mataran a tiros. La justificación de este asesinato fue la afirmación de que les apuntó con su rifle mientras corría. Sin embargo, la falta de video (a pesar de la abundancia de cámaras en el área) hace que su familia y otros cuestionen esa explicación y pregunten si la policía lo mató porque estaba armado legalmente.

Jorge Gomez was open carrying as he walked past the Lloyd D. George U.S. Federal Courthouse after a Black Lives Matter protest in Downtown Las Vegas. Shortly after, an LVMPD officer began firing bean bag rounds at him. In order to avoid that, he began running toward where his car was parked.
Unfortunately, he didn't make it very far before he was shot and killed by four other Metro cops. The justification for this killing was the claim that he pointed his rifle at them as he ran.
However, a lack of video (despite an abundance of cameras in the area) has his family and others questioning that explanation and asking if he was instead murdered by the police for open carrying.
