    Prosecutors in Salt Lake County, Utah, have asked the FBI to join a criminal probe into the violent arrest of a local nurse who was manhandled by a detective and shoved screaming into a squad car as she tried to protect the legal rights of a patient. In a letter made public Thursday, District Attorney Sim Gill called on FBI agents to investigate whether the arresting officer or anyone else in the chain of command violated nurse Alex Wubbels’s civil rights or broke other laws during the July 26 incident.

    Wearing full military gear and wielding high-powered rifles, Delaware state police broke into a home Friday, shooting and killing a dog who was running from them in fear. The entry was captured on Mark Reedy’s security camera, who says police were looking for guns, but the shooting takes place off-frame. The video shows the dog running up to the door as they are trying to break in, yelling “state police … search warrant.” The dog is barking and it’s tail is wagging but as soon as it sees a giant shield enter the home with a gun pointing from behind...

    Dashcam footage captured the horrifying moment two police officers drew their guns on a husband and wife after pulling them over while they were rushing to the hospital to give birth. James Reiner was driving his wife Dana to the hospital after her water broke in January 2012 in Hebron, Indiana when they passed a police car that suddenly turned on its lights and pulled them over, despite the fact that they were not speeding. That is when James got out to tell Sgt. Anthony Dandurand that his wife was pregnant and they needed to get to the hospital. He...

    A police officer who killed a man in Cincinnati during a traffic stop has been indicted for murder, the Hamilton County prosecutor said today, noting, "This was the purposeful killing of another person.""I'm treating him like a murderer," prosecutor Joseph Deters said during a news conference when describing the warrant out for a police officer who killed Samuel DuBose, 43, earlier this month. Tensing had been on paid administrative leave but was let go by the department, school officials said in a release Wednesday. Footage released today from a police officer's body cam lasts about 10 minutes and shows the...

    ATLANTA-Carrie Mills is a retired Atlanta Police officer with 30 years on the job - primarily in APD's drug unit. Mills is now a union rep for the International Brotherhood of Police Officers. She considers herself an expert on search warrants, particularly no knock warrants, which allows officers to enter a structure without knocking first. Mills says no-knock warrants helped close a lot of cases while she was an officer. "If we knock and announced, all evidence is going to be destroyed," Mills said. State Sen. Vincent Fort, (D-39), has announced plans to introduce a bill that would make it...

    Last week when I went to peruse the shelves at Barnes & Noble and used my educator card for a purchase, I was asked to show a photo ID. The next day, when I went for a planned medical procedure, I was required to display a photo ID. And finally, when I cashed a check at the local A&P, the cashier requested to see some identification. Even at a local Goodwill store, I had to show a photo ID in order to buy an item. In addition, I needed to show my driver's license to get a new library card....

    An anonymous call to the Police Department vowing revenge for the death of Alejandro Nieto, a 28-year-old man from Bernal Heights who was shot and killed by officers recently, has prompted the department to warn its officers to be on high alert while doing their jobs, according to multiple police sources. “There had been threats made against San Francisco police officers,” Officer Albie Esparza said when asked about the phone call. “We do take any threat serious and [the matter] is being investigated.” The anonymous threat comes as tensions between the community and police are high following three officer-involved shootings...

    FITCHBURG -- It was a horror movie come to life. Judy Sanchez woke Thursday to the sound of heavy footsteps in her stairwell, followed by a loud motor. She got to her kitchen in time to see the blade of a chain saw rip through her front door. "It was so crazy," Judy Sanchez said. "I was terrified." Jan. 26 was the day of Operation Red Wolf, a multiagency sweep during which 16 people in Fitchburg were arrested on charges related to gang activity, drug trafficking and illegal gun sales after a two-year investigation by federal, state and local law-enforcement...

    Maybe it’s time to start a Jackboot Watch feature. We’ve got DOJ lawyers going after Gibson guitars. There’s the ongoing Fast and Furious debacle. Add the eco-nitwit rogues at the Interior Department. Then there’s the War on Lemonade Stands. And now, we’ve got the U.S. Attorney in Idaho filing federal charges against Jeremy Hill, a father who shot a grizzly bear on his property to protect his wife and kids — even though state officials who investigated the case thoroughly took no action against the man. He now faces up to a year in prison and a $50,000 fine. He...

    On December 14, 2010, a firefight erupted in the Arizona desert. When the smoke had cleared, Customs and Border Protection Agent Brian Terry was dead, and the seeds of a scandal had been sown. Some of the rank and file of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), often referred to as the ATF, began to grow concerned that a new development in Project Gunrunner probably had resulted in the death of Agent Terry.

With each scream and cry, the officer threatened her with more shocks. ~~~~~~~~~~~ "I did what I had to do to take control of the situation," Smith told the AJC about his decision to repeatedly discharge his Taser. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Police said yesterday they have cleared Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo and his family of any wrongdoing in connection with a package of marijuana that police intercepted en route to his home, leading to a violent raid in which deputy sheriffs killed the family's two dogs. Prince George's County Police Chief Melvin C. High delivered the news in a telephone call Thursday to Calvo, saying police and State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey determined that Calvo and his family were innocent victims caught up in a drug-smuggling ring. High exonerated the mayor and his family and expressed regret that they were...
