    Inside information into the years-long child abuse saga involving Louisville Metropolitan Police Department (LMPD) officers is now being revealed. The city commissioned former U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey to investigate the LMPD Explorers program for children to determine if sexual misconduct, abuse, and even rape were widespread with police officers involved in the program. Hardly an isolated incident, in total, a series of seven lawsuits names more than eight current or former LMPD officers. In a disturbing description to FOX News this week, one of the victims went into graphic detail on how he was abused and raped by people he...

    I took the time over the weekend to read the entirety of the 102-page Department of Justice report on the Ferguson PD ("FPD"). I cannot recommend highly enough that you do the same. During the course of this reading, I intentionally read it with as jaundiced of an eye towards the Department of Justice as possible. I intentionally disregarded all commentary regarding what the DOJ investigators reported that they saw, and also all of their reported interviews of the citizens of Ferguson and FPD officers. I decided to say to myself, let's assume that everything DOJ says is a lie,...

    Video Linky Here YORK, SC -- A senior citizen was shot during a traffic stop when a police officer stopped him for expired tags and mistook his walking stick for a gun.

Lacking the strength to walk properly, Mr. Canipe then reached into his truck to pick up his walking stick, as he had done countless times before. But this time was different. Canipe was in...

    A New York business owner was targeted by local police after they became suspicious of his store. As a result, they sent in an undercover informant on two separate occasions who ultimately hurt them a lot more than he helped. On the second visit, the informant allegedly planted and photographed crack cocaine, which led to the arrest of store owner Donald Andrews Jr. Andrews operates a “smoke shop” in Scotia that sells incense and other smoking paraphernalia that can easily be used for other illicit activities. Andrews' attorney, Kevin Luibrand, narrated a video that was shot by in-store surveillance cameras...

    St. Petersburg, FL - When a large breed dog reaches 12 plus years of age, his guardian begins to think about "the end". Pangs of concern, sometimes panic, begin to seep into day to day thoughts... What ailment will steal away your loved one's life? Heart failure, cancer, or some other degenerative disease? Few, if any, dog owners ever ponder their beloved senior companion being shot dead. That nightmare was one family's reality back on October 2 when their 12 yr-old Golden Retriever, "Boomer", was shot and killed by a St. Petersburg police officer. On that fateful night, Boomer has...

    Five New Orleans police officers accused of indiscriminately shooting people in the chaos unleashed by Hurricane Katrina face a high-profile trial in the coming week. The deadly 2005 shooting on the Danziger Bridge and resulting cover-up came to epitomize the city's failure to protect its citizens and exposed deep-rooted corruption in the police department which many say remains unaddressed. "This trial is going to show the country and the world that we have a serious problem with our police department," said Eddie Jordan, the city's former District Attorney. "This department is engaged in horrendous acts against its citizens."

I have no desires, no notions, no thoughts, no feelings, and no plans to kill myself. So if the Painesville city police department and/or the Lake county sheriff's department tells the Local Press that I committed suicide, know in an instant that I was murdered by some very stupid person(s). Most likely someone in the so-called "law enforcement" community. Furthermore, I have no desire, no inclination, no feelings and no plans to cause bodily...

    New Haven Mayor John DeStefano says he will pursue legal action against the police union for the union's Thursday protest outside City Hall. About 200 officers marched from Police Headquarters to City Hall to protest the mayor's decision to lay off 16 officers as part of a plan to deal with the city's budget crisis. The officers blocked Church Street and demanded to speak to DeStefano about his decision. A spokesperson for the mayor says the city is aware that many of the officers who participated in the protest were on duty -- something that is not permitted.

    This is one of the most disturbing cop videos I've ever seen. Basically a guy was shooting his 22 rifle at a target on secluded acreage in a rural part of San Luis Obispo County, California. The cops got one of those "shots fired" calls surrounded the place with guns drawn and a half dozen officers. The guy wouldn't consent to a search of his home when they got there, so the cops basically invented "probable cause" to enter on the spot, ripped his keys off his belt, and went inside anyway. Midway through the search it came back over...

    To the drug courier, it must have seemed like extraordinarily bad luck: A police cruiser appeared with its lights flashing moments after the 300 grams of heroin allegedly was exchanged on a street in North Philadelphia. The suspect was handcuffed and driven away. But neither luck nor good police work had anything to do with what happened. According to a federal indictment released Tuesday, the arrest was staged by police officers who were working with a drug dealer in a scheme to steal heroin and sell it.

    NEW ORLEANS - A second ex-New Orleans officer charged in an alleged conspiracy to cover up a deadly police shooting of unarmed residents after Hurricane Katrina is expected to plead guilty. A person familiar with the case unsealed Tuesday against former detective Jeffrey Lehrmann said his guilty plea is expected later this week in federal court. The person was not authorized to discuss the plea negotiations and asked not to be identified. Lehrmann faces a charge of misprision of a felony, which means misconduct.
