Officer’s Conviction Overturned In UMD Beating Caught On Video

Department : Prince George’s County Police Department
Officer : James Harrison

Judge Beverly Woodard ~ Courthouse Room M240
14735 Main Street
Upper Marlboro, MD 20772
(301) 952-3708

“The conviction of a Prince George’s County police officer in the beating of a University of Maryland student that was captured on video has been overturned by a judge” ABC7 News

Cop was convicted in 2012

James Harrison was found guilty of second-degree assault in the 2010 beating and was given a one-year suspended sentence in Dec. 2012. He served 30 days of home confinement.

Judge Beverly Woodard did not explain the reason for her decision in tossing out the conviction; beating victim Jack McKenna called the judge’s decision “frightening.”

“It sends a message that they (the police) can do whatever they want,” McKenna, now a second-year law student, said. “If they can get away with beating me up on national TV for doing nothing, it really makes me scared for what’s going to happen to those in a dark alley when the cameras aren’t shining.”

Jon Erzen, a spokesman for the Office of the State’s Attorney, said prosecutors, too, were surprised that the judge set aside the jury’s verdict in the case.

“They (jurors) said Mr. Harrison’s actions were not acceptable policing and they were criminal,” Erzen said.

Harrison, along with another officer who was acquitted, were charged with beating up McKenna as students celebrated the men’s basketball team’s victory over Duke on March 3, 2010.

Harrison retired with a full pension before his trial, but now with his felony criminal record cleared, there is a chance he could go back into police work.

McKenna collected a $2 million dollar settlement from the police department to drop a civil lawsuit in the case, but his attorney was fuming over the criminal conviction being overturned.

“It means that police officers can think they can commit an act, a savage act of brutality, and get away with it,” said lawyer Terrell Roberts. ~ Read More

“As far as the assassination is concerned it is my belief that there was a conspiracy because there were those that disliked him and felt the only way to get rid of him was to assassinate him. These five conspirators, in my opinion, were Lyndon B. Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, the Mafia, the CIA, and the Cubans in Florida.”—Evelyn Lincoln, personal secretary to President John F. Kennedy (from a letter dated October 7, 1994, to Richard Duncan; full letter quoted in Twyman’s Bloody Treason, p. 831)

“I do not, for one second, believe the conclusions of the Warren Commission.”—Governor John Connally (Doug Thompson, “Is Deception the Best Way to Serve the Country,” March 30, 2006)

“I told the FBI what I had heard [two shots from behind the grassy knoll fence], but they said it couldn’t have happened that way and that I must have been imagining things. So I testified the way they wanted me to. I just didn’t want to stir up any more pain and trouble for the family.”—Kennedy aide Kenneth O’Donnell, quoted by House Speaker Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill Jr. in Man of the House, p. 178. O’Donnell was riding in the Secret Service follow-up car with Dave Powers, who was present and told O’Neill he had the same recollection.

“We don’t have any proof that Oswald fired the rifle. No one has been able to put him in that building with a gun in his hand.” —Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry, quoted by United Press International, November 5, 1969

“We have not been told the truth about Oswald.” —Hale Boggs, Warren Commission member

“Everything pertaining to what’s happening has never come to the surface. The world will never know the true facts, of what occurred, my motives. The people had , that had so much to gain and had such an ulterior motive for putting me in the position I’m in, will never let the true facts come above board to the world.”—Jack Ruby, interview, 1964.

“I now fully realize that only the powers of the Presidency will reveal the secrets of my brother’s death.” —Robert Kennedy, June 3, 1968, two days before he was assassinated.

“The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy.”—Final Report, House Select Committee of Assassinations (HSCA), 1979,

Date of Incident ~ 07/19/2014
Employees ~ Officer Jason Allen, Investigator Darren Lindgreen,

Department ~ Grand Island NE
Department Contact ~ 308-385-5400

In July I was charged with a dui in Hall County. I was found in my car at 730am right next to a heavily traveled road in Grand Island and an extremely busy parking lot, with my feet outside my car door, no jeans and no underwear either. It was called in as a welfare check at 730am it took 3 police officers to walk around my car for almost 3 and a half minutes with me in that condition and talk with one another before ever knocking on my window to wake me up at all. I know this from the tape my lawyer finally received last week from the county attorney’s office, its on the tape the officers never asked me how I got there at all just asked me to put my pants on and get out of the car. Nobody bothered to ask anything at all, I even asked for my lawyer on more than one occasion loud and clear as day on the video, I was even told the second time by a police officer that I didn’t have the right to an attorney and they didn’t have to grant me one either. I invoked my miranda rights at that very point and was granted nothing at all. I was taken to the jail, booked and waiting for someone to come and get me, I was in so much pain because obviously something had happened the night before, I asked to see the nurse at the jail and even her and the morning guard who worked there said i should never have been taken to the jail i should’ve been in the emergency room for the condition i was in, they even went so far as to tell me flat out that as soon as I was bailed out I did not need to shower whatsoever.  I was not to go home or anywhere else except the emergency room, that if they had the choice or the power they would’ve taken me in, but they weren’t allowed to.

Now Hall county is a strict jail in many aspect but it hurt so much to sit or lay on the concrete beds that they even allowed me to have one of the mats for a bed before the time they were handed out, and allowed me to make over 30 phone calls trying to find someone to come and get me. when I finally did get bailed out at around 130am the next morning the guard who walked me out even told me, my mother, and my sister that he wanted us to know that he wanted to go on record of saying he did not agree with how i was treated or the fact that i was not taken to the hospital before then and he would go on record for it because he even said if he’d worked during the day when I was originally brought in he would’ve taken me in. After all of this i did go to the emergency room and asked for a rape kit to be done because i didnt remember anything from the night before except that i had asked two different people to come and get me and that i wanted to go home, and setting my beer down on a table at the bar and going to the bathroom and walking back from the bathroom to find my beer on the opposite end of the table and sitting all by itself and then nothing whats so ever except waking up in my car to cops knocking on my window. I walked into the emergency room around 2am i even asked to be tested for GHB and they said it would’ve been to long since id have gotten it to even be tested at all for it, but they could do the rape kit to test for semon or anything like that. They sent a police officer to take the report and i told him everything that happened and he did take it but when it came time for me to give them my clothes for the rape kit and so they could test my jeans especially for any dna or anything they had me undress and place them on the floor not in a bag or anything just straight on the floor. The officer picked them up and carried them out, no bag, no nothing. They never even placed anything under me to try and catch any skin or anything that might have been there. I sat and waited and waited for a sane nurse as they are the ones who are supposed to conduct a rape kit, i waited until 7am before i was told they couldn’t find an available sane nurse to do the exam. I was told to just go home and they would have one contact me on monday morning and this was at 7am on sunday morning!!! I was never contacted by them at all and when I contacted them on monday afternoon I was told that someone would call me on tuesday to go in. Tuesday came and went. On wednesday I went to the crisis center and was told it was too late to do anything, I had waited to long.

I did get to meet with an investigator from the police department to file an official report and heres the real odd part. The investigator turned out to be the same police officer that was dispatched to the hospital about 5 years prior to this when my niece broke her arm playing in my sisters front yard, I had been there so of course they had to take a statement from everyone there and make sure it was under normal type circumstances that she had broken her arm. It was the same officer that had contacted me on facebook after the day my niece broke her arm and told me how pretty I was and how he wanted to get to know me. We did text back and forth for a few weeks until I decided he was creepy because he wouldn’t stop texting me so I finally deleted him from my facebook and changed my number. Now you can imagine how awkward this was especially when he even mentioned our “history” as he called it in our meeting over my sexual assault case. I do have the video of this also. I told him who I was around the night before my dui and he told me he would look into it and see what he could find out. Now this was the Wednesday after my dui. In July the investigator went on maternity leave with his wife and was gone for 6 weeks, in this time they never so much as talked to any individual who was there that night at all, not a single one of them period.

On October 1st I began receiving facebook messages from a guy and his girlfriend asking me why he was being investigated for a sexual assault against me, thats how I found out they had finally talked to someone. Naturally I called the investigator and asked how it was going with my case, you can imagine my shock at hearing he talked to one guy who had said yes we had sex, and that it was consensual, and that there was no more case to be had. They were satisfied with the fact that what the guy said was just so. I was so incredibly frustrated that I did talk to the investigator and asked why, from the time I spoke to him to the time they contacted the one person that they did,  it took them 73 days, yes 73 days!! I even asked why, if he went on maternity leave, he didn’t give the case to another investigator? His reply was he didn’t feel it warranted that attention. Now to me and to any normal person at all this would be infuriating to say the least. During our last meeting I was told that it was partially my fault it took so long because I didn’t have screenshots or copies of messages from the one guy’s girlfriend asking me why he came home with scratches and bleeding. I report a sexual assault and get told its my own fault and they are the ones that sat for 73 days without doing anything!!!! It’s all on tape along with emails from the investigator stating that even after all of this my clothes from that night and my rape kit were never even sent in!! They never even so much as sent them in to be tested! They completely shoved it under the rug, they never even cared enough to send it in at all!!!

Someone somewhere has to listen to me please, please, please. This is all so wrong!. The grand island police department and the county attorney’s office are getting away with everything here, all led by the man who wants to become the new district judge. Someone has got to help me. What they did with my daughter and with me now has got to stop. If they’ve done it to one family, a mother and daughter both regarding sexual assault, what else are they doing and who else are they doing it to?? These three officers even took the special time to take pictures of me without my jeans or anything in my car before they ever tried to wake me up!!! It’s gross and wrong and shows just how misguided the police officers from that morning were!!
Anna Cure

This won’t stop unless attention is brought to them.

Probation Dept. Could Force Man to be Homeless Over Dismissed Charge

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

Probation Department misconductThis post, concerning a case of official misconduct and/or incompetence in Dutchess County, New York, was submitted by “Captain Six” via the Cop Block submission page and originally published anonymously at the “Hudson Valley Wire“. It involves actions taken by employees of the Dutchess County Probation Department, based on a charge that was already dismissed and that could ultimately result in someone becoming homeless.

According to Director Mary Ellen Still, their “goal is to assist the youth and adults under our supervision to become law abiding and responsible members of the community.” That hardly seems to be the case here, though. Homeless individuals, as well as those with homes that are living in poverty, are already heavily targeted by police and the courts. Perpetuating such conditions, based on charges that have already been dismissed, hardly seems to be a way to assist anyone to “become law abiding and responsible members of the community.”

Date of Incident: September, 2014
Individuals Responsible: Unknown Probation Officers employed by the Dutchess County Probation Department.
Outfit Involved: Dutchess County, NY Office of Probation and Community Corrections
Phone No.: (845) 486-2600
Fax No.: (845) 486-2676
Email: probation@dutchessny.gov
Area Cop Block Affiliate:  There are multiple Cop Block Affiliates in New York. To find the appropriate local group in your area, consult the Cop Block Groups page.

The following was submitted by a viewer who wishes to remain anonymous, for fear of retribution:

I have been struggling with homelessness for the past several months. I was once a middle-class citizen, who was born and raised here in Dutchess county. My family roots go back to the first Dutch settlers in the 1600’s, in fact. Yet I can’t even afford a rental on the long road that was once the long driveway of my old “Van” ancestors. The reasons for my homelessness is a storied tale, that doesn’t happen all at once, and might be left to another article. But today’s submission, is about how I am being made homeless yet again, by an indirect order from a public agency.

A few months ago, I was literally living on the streets for a time. An old friend from high school had the heart to take me in, and rent a space to me in her basement for the small pittance that I get for housing from an emergency benefit from New York State. (What “welfare” gives you is $216 a month. Good luck finding a rental for that much.) Sadly, not a month had gone by, and some family court issue on her end, left me homeless yet again.

A few days passed, and another friend of mine from my old high school days told me that he had an spare room. He basically used it as a slop den for his pets. I was not at all picky, and moved in with the agreement that I would pay him all of my housing benefit amount, plus another hundred dollars. I bought a mop and bucket, and turned the kennel room into a liveable space.

There was a catch though. My friend is on misdemeanor probation. So before I moved in, I asked him to clear this with his probation officer. The PO told him that since I am not a felon, not on probation or parole, and since I have no open cases pending, that he could not “violate” him on the terms of his probation. I moved in the next day.

I have since shifted over my legal address to the new residence, and I claim a housing benefit from social services in order to make partial payment for the room as well as access to the kitchen and bathroom. I make up the difference by spending my cash allotment for things like transportation and laundry, on rent to my roomate. These services are meant to get me back on my feet, and I am doing my best to do that.

Unfortunately, the probation department doesn’t see it that way. Since I have moved in, the department of probation has threatened to violate my roommate/landlord, for renting a room to me. I have called his PO several times, but he didn’t return any of my calls until today. Essentially he told me that “P*****k knows what he has to do” and would not give me any reason why I should be evicted, citing confidentiality. However, confidentiality did not prevent them from showing images of myself as well as my arrest record on unfounded charges, in order to establish defamatory statements against me by the agent, as well as his supervisor.

Now just to be clear here. I am not a felon, I am not on probation or parole, I have no open cases pending. Admittedly though, I do have an arrest in the last year, for which the charge was dismissed in a local town court.

The question then becomes, can the department of probation make me homeless once again, because I was arrested on a charge that was dismissed? Can they send a man to jail, at huge taxpayer cost, two months before his probation is finished, for renting a room to a man who was once a first-responder and a state-licensed officer, but happened to have a misunderstanding with the judicial system?

Tyranny is Alive and Well in Hamilton, TX

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

This was submitted to Cop Block via the /submit tab on 12-12-2014 by someone requesting to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation. He cites numerous personal experiences, disturbing double standards and outlines his attempts at obtaining accountability peacefully through open letters, calling out the individual aggressors as well as actively seeking other forms of transparency.
Minor editing  for easy readability respectfully provided by Toni Bones.

Aggressor: Officer Justin Slone, Badge #151
If compelled, calmly and assertively express your thoughts on the ‘services provided’  to those calling themselves the ‘city of hamilton’ at 254-386-3805

 

He begins his submission with these quotes followed by this open letter to his community.

Merriam-Webster’s definition of tyranny is as follows:
“tyr·an·ny noun \ˈtir-ə-nē\
cruel and unfair treatment by people with power over others

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
Edmund Burke

“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.”
Charles de Montesquieu

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”
“A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither”
“When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”
Thomas Jefferson

Tyranny is alive and well in Hamilton, Texas.

This is the exact paperwork I filed with the city employee complaint form.
Dear Hamilton, Tx Residents and Officials,

I am, ***, and I live at ****, Hamilton, TX 76531. I am a Disabled Veteran, who served proudly as a Navy Hospital Corpsman. In my job description my duties included caring for the health and well-being of my marines. When I say, My Marines, I consider every marine I’ve ever served to be mine and felt it was my responsibility to take care of them regardless of risk and even my life. I’ve been to Navy Boot Camp, Navy Medical School, at the Naval School of Health Sciences, at the Naval Hospital Balboa, San Diego, CA. Then I moved up to Marine Base, Camp Pendleton to Field Medical Service School(FMSS),  or in layman’s terms, “Combat Medical School”.
My entire career I served with the Marine Corps and many different units within those ranks. I’ve been to Marine Corps Network Security School and Marine Corps Safety School. I’ve been to almost every survival school they let me go too due to the necessity of learning how to treat wounded marines in various environments.

I am a veteran of the Persian Gulf War and honor all who have gone before to give us the freedoms we so cherish in America. I didn’t do all that I did,  abuse my body and become 100% disabled (yet only 80% on paper) to sit by and let my cities ‘law enforcement’ go tyrannical. I have never lost a marine, but if I had and I didn’t do something that I was taught to do  then I would be held accountable  for not following regulations… even if I had forgotten them…there are no excuses when dealing with lives.

I expect no less from local law enforcement officers. We can’t worry about the big tyrannical government in Washington D.C. when we are seeing signs of it even in our small little Texas community. The citizens must rise up and stop any form of tyranny before it escalates or we will  become accustomed to their tyrannical rule.

I am not willing to live under a nazi form of rule. I didn’t fight for that and no patriot did. We have to hold our law enforcement officers to the highest standards of the laws that they are given the authority to enforce. They need to understand the laws they are hired to enforce. I’m sorry to tell you but these officers have shown themselves to either be ignorant of the laws or blatantly abusing their authority…Neither is a good thing for the residents of Hamilton, Tx.

They need to understand that they are “servants” of the citizens and not the authoritative rulers over the people of Hamilton, Tx. I’ve been warned that this letter may heat things up and invoke retaliation from the exact people I’m referring too. I would hope this is not  the case and I will take legal action if necessary.

I only expect the law enforcement officers to obey the laws that they are given the authority to enforce. If we can’t have that kind of protection and freedom combined, then why do we pay them? I don’t think anyone in Hamilton, Tx wants tyrannical law enforcement and most are not even aware this is going on. It is kept very quite when the local law enforcement repeatedly breaks the law… but we the people talk to each other.  Most will not complain to the actual law enforcement office due to retaliation. If that is really a problem, then we are already in very serious trouble.

While you may not be aware of any personal retaliation, my cases below may make you think otherwise. Remember, I’m a disabled veteran who faithfully served this country and gave my oath to defend her from ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. Domestic police are getting out of hand and if we don’t make them obey their own laws and stop enforcing illegal laws, which will be explained more below, then we need to get ready for an authoritative nazi rule.

and I won’t have that. Not while I’m still alive.
As a citizen of the United States, the State of Texas and the City of Hamilton, Texas, I have a “duty” to resist tyranny. The Hamilton Police Department and the Hamilton Sheriff Department have some serious problems. The sole purpose of this open letter is to inform others of the situations happening under their noses and that too few are doing anything about it. The officials in this city and county have gone tyrannical. I can’t say if it is the entire staff or just a few rogue officers. Either way, it needs to be addressed and taken care of before it gets even more out of hand.

I’ve personally talked with the Chief of Police of the Hamilton Police Department and he thinks his officer did nothing wrong. To me this means that he doesn’t understand the laws he vows to enforce. We are a country of laws and when the ones given authority to enforce the law don’t understand or respect them, then we are all in trouble. I don’t want to see one other person in Hamilton, Tx stopped and harassed for doing nothing wrong. I don’t want officers thinking they can do as they please because they wear a badge. That badge can be taken away when abused and I expect action against all involved.

I’ve sent emails to the sheriff asking for roster sheets of the classes being taught to the local law enforcement officers. I want to be sure that they understand the laws they are given the authority to enforce and to respect the constitutional rights of citizens. I was not given even one response. I emailed the local newspaper to inform the editor about doing a story and even went to the trouble of emailing both reporters yet nothing was done. However, I did hear the editor of the local newspaper is good friends with the local sheriff so that no bad publicity  will come from a reporter or let through by the editor.

This means that this problem in Hamilton goes deep. The law is being manipulated and broken by law enforcement officers who claim to know the law and have yet to show any regard for the law themselves.

Case #1
Sheriff Deputy Caraway owned the house at 207 Standifer. He had a renter threatening to shoot me and then was stalking my wife and I from outside of our bedroom window… all over their dog being in my yard and chasing rescued cats. Knowing Deputy Sheriff Caraway owned the house, I called and got the dispatch to connect me to him. When I informed him of his renter and his actions, his response was…”what do you want me to do about it?” I said “I thought you owned the house, were the law and would take care of it” His response was “Call the sheriff” and hung up on me. My wife and I called the sheriff. He came out and checked everything. I even told him I’d taken pictures of the footprints and the dogs footprints outside our window. The people moved awhile later and I never heard anything about them even being talked to about the matter.

Case #2
I’ve already had Sheriff Deputy Caraway officially reprimanded for handcuffing me because I didn’t show him my ID. Texas Penal Code, 38.02 states that unless a citizen has committed a crime or suspected of committing a crime, does an ID have to be shown, especially when not operating a motor vehicle. Driver’s license are solely for the purpose  drive in the state. I also informed Sheriff Deputy Caraway that he was breaking the law and my constitutional rights. He became angry, lied and said “YOU HAVE TO SHOW ID IN TEXAS, IT’S THE LAW”. That is a blatant lie backed up with the Supreme Court decisions , Texas Penal Code and the Constitution.

Case #3
On another occasion, my wife and I heard some girls fighting at the football field parking lot. When we looked they were hitting each other and one ended up pushing the other into her SUV  punching her. We called 911. I reported the incident and not only did they not show up, but they didn’t even ask me what happened, who was fighting or if anyone was hurt. The craziest thing was…I even had pictures that they never even looked at.
I saw a Daycare Center on my way to deliver toys to the Extraco Bank Christmas Toy Drive. It was over, but the toys had just been picked up from the bankto take to Mrs. Bee at the CPA Office which is located across the street from K-6 Machining Shop on N Hwy 281.  I saw the Daycare Center with no children outside. I stopped to ask if they wanted some new in the box toys for the kids. She said in a hateful manner…”I don’t want anything from you”.   Soon after going to the Daycare Center on FM932, across from the Huts for Muts house where the lady  was very nice and a little girl even asked me to come in. I refused due to the children being in the house, but the lady was very nice and accepted the toys.  “Thank You, Very Much”.  Not at all the same reaction from the other “rude” female Charlie, at the previous Daycare.

I then decided to go to the First Baptist Church to see if they had needy kids or some toys for the nursery children. That is when the Badge #151 drove up behind me after following me for 6 city blocks from the football field.  Justin Slone, Badge #151 informed me that I was getting a “Notice of Criminal Trespass”.

The Constitution of the United States and the 4th Amendment state that I have the right to go about my daily business, without being interfered with by the tyrannical police when I’ve committed no crime. My rights were also violated when he broke his own oath of office….Which states he must do everything according to the law.  I broke no law by driving up and offering free toys!!! I was lied to and told it was not an official citation, so I had nothing to worry about even though I was issued the official “Notice of Criminal Trespass” form.  When I asked if it would be entered into my official file he stated “Yes”. I informed the officer on multiple occasions that what he was doing was wrong. I expressed that I knew it and he knew it, too and he just didn’t care. He proceeded to issue me the “Notice of Criminal Trespass”.

One citizens paranoia does not justify the police chasing down an innocent christmas toy donator. The officer saw the toys I was donating to the First Baptist Church and I informed him I’d donated to the bank, The Hamilton Healthcare Center for Kids in the E.R. going through Trauma,  and to other daycare facilities. I donated my entire collection of Hot Wheels, valued at approximately $5,000.00.  Also about 1,000 Toys, individually wrapped in the original packages to be rewarded with being illegally cited for doing nothing wrong. This would make any person angry. I almost started crying it hurt my feelings so bad. I’ve been mentally and physically distraught this entire weekend and find no other options but to inform my community of the entire situation. That is a kick in the heart to know they have no respect or love for the freedoms we veterans so hardly fought for.  A veteran would not harm the people he freely went and served to protect. He would give his/her own life to protect the citizens of America and yet we get treated with disrespect and no honor whatsoever. I don’t want honor or recognition for myself. I want to live in a city that respects people of all walks of life and to be treated equally and justly, nothing more, nothing less.

Laws I Broke: NONE
Laws Officer Justin Slone broke
1. My Constitutional Rights, in the 4th Amendment.
2. Texas Penal Code – Section 30.05. Criminal Trespass – Law used inappropriately, when no crime had been committed.
3. Police Officers’ Oath of Office – which the Officer swore to GOD to enforce the Law, “According to Law”, and the Officer did neither.
4. Police Officer Lied to “We The People”, His Employers, in the line of his duties, which he took an Oath to “TRULY SERVE”. True Servitude does NOT come with Tyrannical Actions towards the Citizen’s he serves.

I am demanding that the Hamilton County law enforcement officials to take steps to prosecute this officer as he knowingly violated and broke his police oath. I am also demanding to have each and every instance of official paperwork on each matter be removed from my official records to reflect the truth. I committed no crime and expect my record to reflect such. It is the only just and right thing to do. I am obligated as a citizen of Texas to inform the people of the misuse of power

. We, as Hamilton residence, deserve to have police that understand and study the laws in which they are given authority to enforce. If just these cases were it, it might not be so bad, but this is just the tip of the iceberg from what the local citizens talk about. For instance, Sheriff Deputy Caraway has been talked about peeling out of Rangler’s on Hwy 36 and never turned on any emergency lights. They are required for excessive speed. The same Officer went through the recently purchased “Drivers’ License” building parking lot at a high rate of speed while the owners’ grandson, a very young child, was in the same parking lot playing.

The stories go on and on and that should NOT be the case.

Please take action against these officers who knowingly break the law. Ignorance of the law from an officer unacceptable. We as citizens are expected and even ticketed if we do not obey the laws, but yet the one’s enforcing the laws are breaking them over and over.

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
Edmund Burke

I will not remain silent as long as tyrannical law enforcement are walking the streets. I never fought for my country to become THIS. I have to stand up and fight for myself, my family, my friends and even the people of Hamilton, Tx.

I don’t know you but you deserve to be ruled fairly and justly according to the laws established by our forefathers. Stand with me and take action. Record every occasion you can , not to be rude, but to have accountability on both sides. It protects all involved and stops tyrannical behavior when evidence is being gathered against either party involved.

Let’s get everything going in a positive direction and start to appreciate and respect ourpolice, not hate and begrudge them due to their actions. The respect for law enforcement has dwindled and now people are afraid to even call the police due to what might happen. With this bunch, I don’t blame them. Let’s get some positive change and everyone can live in peace and justice and harmony with each other again. Let’s take action where action is due and let the people live freely and at peace.

The Police officers Oath:

“I……………………DO SWEAR,, THAT – I WILL WELL AND TRULY SERVE – OUR SOVEREIGN COUNTRY AND STATE – AS A POLICE OFFICER WITHOUT FAVOR OR AFFECTION – MALICE OR ILL-WILL – UNTIL I AM LEGALLY DISCHARGED, THAT I WILL SEE AND CAUSE OUR COMMUNITY’S PEACE TO BE KEPT AND
PRESERVED – AND THAT – I WILL PREVENT TO THE BEST OF MY POWER – ALL OFFENSES AGAINST THAT PEACE – AND THAT – WHILE I CONTINUE TO BE A POLICE OFFICER – I WILL – TO THE BEST OF MY SKILL AND KNOWLEDGE – DISCHARGE ALL THE DUTIES THEREOF – FAITHFULLY – ACCORDING TO LAW.
SO HELP ME GOD.”

  If a Law Enforcement Officer stops and asks for ID and you’ve committed NO Crime, NO ID has to be given and by them stopping you, they are committing the crime of Search(Asking for ID) & Seizure(because they stopped you from your normal daily business when no crime was committed)
U.S. Constitution – Amendment 4
Amendment 4 – Search and Seizure
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Only give a Law Enforcement Officer an ID if you have committed a criminal offense and don’t forget the word “Lawfully Arrested”…so if you have not committed a crime and not lawfully arrested, no ID is required to be given.
TEXAS PENAL CODE: CHAPTER 38. OBSTRUCTING GOVERNMENTAL OPERATION
§ 38.02. FAILURE TO IDENTIFY.
(a) A person commits an offense if he intentionally refuses to give his name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has lawfully arrested the person and requested the information.
(b) A person commits an offense if he intentionally gives a false or fictitious name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has:
(1) lawfully arrested the person;
(2) lawfully detained the person; or
(3) requested the information from a person that the peace officer has good cause to believe is a witness to a criminal offense.
(c) Except as provided by Subsections (d) and (e), an offense under this section is:
(1) a Class C misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (a); or
(2) a Class B misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (b).
(d) If it is shown on the trial of an offense under this section that the defendant was a fugitive from justice at the time of the offense, the offense is:
(1) a Class B misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (a); or
(2) a Class A misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (b).
(e) If conduct that constitutes an offense under this section also constitutes an offense under Section 106.07, Alcoholic Beverage Code, the actor may be prosecuted only under Section 106.07.
“Unfortunately, this is not unusual for Texas. Police officers in this state have an idea that they have the right to identify anyone at anytime for any or no reason. The courts have repeatedly slapped them down on this.
“The application of Tex. Penal Code Ann., Tit. 8, § 38.02 (1974), to detain appellant and require him to identify himself violated the Fourth Amendment because the officers lacked any reasonable suspicion to believe appellant was engaged or had engaged in criminal conduct.
Accordingly, appellant may not be punished for refusing to identify himself, and the conviction is Reversed.” Brown v. Texas, 443 U.S. 47 (1979).
“It is clear petitioner was arrested and convicted for his refusal to answer Officer Jennings’ question requesting that petitioner identify himself. This is impermissible even in the context of a lawful investigatory stop.” Spring v. Caldwell, 516 F. Supp. 1223 (S.D. Tex. 1981), reversed on other grounds 692 F.2d 994 (5th Cir. 1982).
“First, Officer Lowe obtained identification from each occupant of the automobile though he had no legal basis whatever for demanding them.” Lewis v. State, 664 S.W.2d 345 (Tex. Crim. App. 1984).
“Moreover, the Supreme Court has previously dealt with a case in which Texas police officers demanded that an individual identify himself even though they had no reasonable suspicion that he had committed a crime. In Brown v. Texas, the Court [11] ruled that Texas Penal Code Ann. § 38.02 (a), as enacted by the Texas legislature in 1974, was unconstitutional because it allowed an officer to stop and demand identification of an individual without any specific basis or belief that he was involved in criminal activity.” Weddle v. Ferrell, No. 3:99-CV-0453-G, 2000 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 2659, 2000 WL 256891 (N.D. Tex. 2000).
“Officers have the right to conduct an investigation of a driver following a traffic violation, but do not have authority to investigate a passenger without reasonable suspicion.” St. George v. State, 237 S.W.3d 720 (Tex. Crim. App. 2007) (holding that arrest of passenger for failure to identify not valid absent legal detention).

Yet we still see police officers demand identification in Texas and threaten arrest (or actually make arrest) on failure to identify when, in fact, no offense has occurred.

Knowledge is Power!!!
Study and Know The Law!!!

Tyranny is Alive and Well in Hamilton, TX

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

This was submitted to Cop Block via the /submit tab on 12-12-2014 by someone requesting to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation. He cites numerous personal experiences, disturbing double standards and outlines his attempts at obtaining accountability peacefully through open letters, calling out the individual aggressors as well as actively seeking other forms of transparency.
Minor editing  for easy readability respectfully provided by Toni Bones.

Aggressor: Officer Justin Slone, Badge #151
If compelled, calmly and assertively express your thoughts on the ‘services provided’  to those calling themselves the ‘city of hamilton’ at 254-386-3805

 

He begins his submission with these quotes followed by this open letter to his community.

Merriam-Webster’s definition of tyranny is as follows:
“tyr·an·ny noun \ˈtir-ə-nē\
cruel and unfair treatment by people with power over others

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
Edmund Burke

“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.”
Charles de Montesquieu

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”
“A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither”
“When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”
Thomas Jefferson

Tyranny is alive and well in Hamilton, Texas.

This is the exact paperwork I filed with the city employee complaint form.
Dear Hamilton, Tx Residents and Officials,

I am, ***, and I live at ****, Hamilton, TX 76531. I am a Disabled Veteran, who served proudly as a Navy Hospital Corpsman. In my job description my duties included caring for the health and well-being of my marines. When I say, My Marines, I consider every marine I’ve ever served to be mine and felt it was my responsibility to take care of them regardless of risk and even my life. I’ve been to Navy Boot Camp, Navy Medical School, at the Naval School of Health Sciences, at the Naval Hospital Balboa, San Diego, CA. Then I moved up to Marine Base, Camp Pendleton to Field Medical Service School(FMSS),  or in layman’s terms, “Combat Medical School”.
My entire career I served with the Marine Corps and many different units within those ranks. I’ve been to Marine Corps Network Security School and Marine Corps Safety School. I’ve been to almost every survival school they let me go too due to the necessity of learning how to treat wounded marines in various environments.

I am a veteran of the Persian Gulf War and honor all who have gone before to give us the freedoms we so cherish in America. I didn’t do all that I did,  abuse my body and become 100% disabled (yet only 80% on paper) to sit by and let my cities ‘law enforcement’ go tyrannical. I have never lost a marine, but if I had and I didn’t do something that I was taught to do  then I would be held accountable  for not following regulations… even if I had forgotten them…there are no excuses when dealing with lives.

I expect no less from local law enforcement officers. We can’t worry about the big tyrannical government in Washington D.C. when we are seeing signs of it even in our small little Texas community. The citizens must rise up and stop any form of tyranny before it escalates or we will  become accustomed to their tyrannical rule.

I am not willing to live under a nazi form of rule. I didn’t fight for that and no patriot did. We have to hold our law enforcement officers to the highest standards of the laws that they are given the authority to enforce. They need to understand the laws they are hired to enforce. I’m sorry to tell you but these officers have shown themselves to either be ignorant of the laws or blatantly abusing their authority…Neither is a good thing for the residents of Hamilton, Tx.

They need to understand that they are “servants” of the citizens and not the authoritative rulers over the people of Hamilton, Tx. I’ve been warned that this letter may heat things up and invoke retaliation from the exact people I’m referring too. I would hope this is not  the case and I will take legal action if necessary.

I only expect the law enforcement officers to obey the laws that they are given the authority to enforce. If we can’t have that kind of protection and freedom combined, then why do we pay them? I don’t think anyone in Hamilton, Tx wants tyrannical law enforcement and most are not even aware this is going on. It is kept very quite when the local law enforcement repeatedly breaks the law… but we the people talk to each other.  Most will not complain to the actual law enforcement office due to retaliation. If that is really a problem, then we are already in very serious trouble.

While you may not be aware of any personal retaliation, my cases below may make you think otherwise. Remember, I’m a disabled veteran who faithfully served this country and gave my oath to defend her from ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. Domestic police are getting out of hand and if we don’t make them obey their own laws and stop enforcing illegal laws, which will be explained more below, then we need to get ready for an authoritative nazi rule.

and I won’t have that. Not while I’m still alive.
As a citizen of the United States, the State of Texas and the City of Hamilton, Texas, I have a “duty” to resist tyranny. The Hamilton Police Department and the Hamilton Sheriff Department have some serious problems. The sole purpose of this open letter is to inform others of the situations happening under their noses and that too few are doing anything about it. The officials in this city and county have gone tyrannical. I can’t say if it is the entire staff or just a few rogue officers. Either way, it needs to be addressed and taken care of before it gets even more out of hand.

I’ve personally talked with the Chief of Police of the Hamilton Police Department and he thinks his officer did nothing wrong. To me this means that he doesn’t understand the laws he vows to enforce. We are a country of laws and when the ones given authority to enforce the law don’t understand or respect them, then we are all in trouble. I don’t want to see one other person in Hamilton, Tx stopped and harassed for doing nothing wrong. I don’t want officers thinking they can do as they please because they wear a badge. That badge can be taken away when abused and I expect action against all involved.

I’ve sent emails to the sheriff asking for roster sheets of the classes being taught to the local law enforcement officers. I want to be sure that they understand the laws they are given the authority to enforce and to respect the constitutional rights of citizens. I was not given even one response. I emailed the local newspaper to inform the editor about doing a story and even went to the trouble of emailing both reporters yet nothing was done. However, I did hear the editor of the local newspaper is good friends with the local sheriff so that no bad publicity  will come from a reporter or let through by the editor.

This means that this problem in Hamilton goes deep. The law is being manipulated and broken by law enforcement officers who claim to know the law and have yet to show any regard for the law themselves.

Case #1
Sheriff Deputy Caraway owned the house at 207 Standifer. He had a renter threatening to shoot me and then was stalking my wife and I from outside of our bedroom window… all over their dog being in my yard and chasing rescued cats. Knowing Deputy Sheriff Caraway owned the house, I called and got the dispatch to connect me to him. When I informed him of his renter and his actions, his response was…”what do you want me to do about it?” I said “I thought you owned the house, were the law and would take care of it” His response was “Call the sheriff” and hung up on me. My wife and I called the sheriff. He came out and checked everything. I even told him I’d taken pictures of the footprints and the dogs footprints outside our window. The people moved awhile later and I never heard anything about them even being talked to about the matter.

Case #2
I’ve already had Sheriff Deputy Caraway officially reprimanded for handcuffing me because I didn’t show him my ID. Texas Penal Code, 38.02 states that unless a citizen has committed a crime or suspected of committing a crime, does an ID have to be shown, especially when not operating a motor vehicle. Driver’s license are solely for the purpose  drive in the state. I also informed Sheriff Deputy Caraway that he was breaking the law and my constitutional rights. He became angry, lied and said “YOU HAVE TO SHOW ID IN TEXAS, IT’S THE LAW”. That is a blatant lie backed up with the Supreme Court decisions , Texas Penal Code and the Constitution.

Case #3
On another occasion, my wife and I heard some girls fighting at the football field parking lot. When we looked they were hitting each other and one ended up pushing the other into her SUV  punching her. We called 911. I reported the incident and not only did they not show up, but they didn’t even ask me what happened, who was fighting or if anyone was hurt. The craziest thing was…I even had pictures that they never even looked at.
I saw a Daycare Center on my way to deliver toys to the Extraco Bank Christmas Toy Drive. It was over, but the toys had just been picked up from the bankto take to Mrs. Bee at the CPA Office which is located across the street from K-6 Machining Shop on N Hwy 281.  I saw the Daycare Center with no children outside. I stopped to ask if they wanted some new in the box toys for the kids. She said in a hateful manner…”I don’t want anything from you”.   Soon after going to the Daycare Center on FM932, across from the Huts for Muts house where the lady  was very nice and a little girl even asked me to come in. I refused due to the children being in the house, but the lady was very nice and accepted the toys.  “Thank You, Very Much”.  Not at all the same reaction from the other “rude” female Charlie, at the previous Daycare.

I then decided to go to the First Baptist Church to see if they had needy kids or some toys for the nursery children. That is when the Badge #151 drove up behind me after following me for 6 city blocks from the football field.  Justin Slone, Badge #151 informed me that I was getting a “Notice of Criminal Trespass”.

The Constitution of the United States and the 4th Amendment state that I have the right to go about my daily business, without being interfered with by the tyrannical police when I’ve committed no crime. My rights were also violated when he broke his own oath of office….Which states he must do everything according to the law.  I broke no law by driving up and offering free toys!!! I was lied to and told it was not an official citation, so I had nothing to worry about even though I was issued the official “Notice of Criminal Trespass” form.  When I asked if it would be entered into my official file he stated “Yes”. I informed the officer on multiple occasions that what he was doing was wrong. I expressed that I knew it and he knew it, too and he just didn’t care. He proceeded to issue me the “Notice of Criminal Trespass”.

One citizens paranoia does not justify the police chasing down an innocent christmas toy donator. The officer saw the toys I was donating to the First Baptist Church and I informed him I’d donated to the bank, The Hamilton Healthcare Center for Kids in the E.R. going through Trauma,  and to other daycare facilities. I donated my entire collection of Hot Wheels, valued at approximately $5,000.00.  Also about 1,000 Toys, individually wrapped in the original packages to be rewarded with being illegally cited for doing nothing wrong. This would make any person angry. I almost started crying it hurt my feelings so bad. I’ve been mentally and physically distraught this entire weekend and find no other options but to inform my community of the entire situation. That is a kick in the heart to know they have no respect or love for the freedoms we veterans so hardly fought for.  A veteran would not harm the people he freely went and served to protect. He would give his/her own life to protect the citizens of America and yet we get treated with disrespect and no honor whatsoever. I don’t want honor or recognition for myself. I want to live in a city that respects people of all walks of life and to be treated equally and justly, nothing more, nothing less.

Laws I Broke: NONE
Laws Officer Justin Slone broke
1. My Constitutional Rights, in the 4th Amendment.
2. Texas Penal Code – Section 30.05. Criminal Trespass – Law used inappropriately, when no crime had been committed.
3. Police Officers’ Oath of Office – which the Officer swore to GOD to enforce the Law, “According to Law”, and the Officer did neither.
4. Police Officer Lied to “We The People”, His Employers, in the line of his duties, which he took an Oath to “TRULY SERVE”. True Servitude does NOT come with Tyrannical Actions towards the Citizen’s he serves.

I am demanding that the Hamilton County law enforcement officials to take steps to prosecute this officer as he knowingly violated and broke his police oath. I am also demanding to have each and every instance of official paperwork on each matter be removed from my official records to reflect the truth. I committed no crime and expect my record to reflect such. It is the only just and right thing to do. I am obligated as a citizen of Texas to inform the people of the misuse of power

. We, as Hamilton residence, deserve to have police that understand and study the laws in which they are given authority to enforce. If just these cases were it, it might not be so bad, but this is just the tip of the iceberg from what the local citizens talk about. For instance, Sheriff Deputy Caraway has been talked about peeling out of Rangler’s on Hwy 36 and never turned on any emergency lights. They are required for excessive speed. The same Officer went through the recently purchased “Drivers’ License” building parking lot at a high rate of speed while the owners’ grandson, a very young child, was in the same parking lot playing.

The stories go on and on and that should NOT be the case.

Please take action against these officers who knowingly break the law. Ignorance of the law from an officer unacceptable. We as citizens are expected and even ticketed if we do not obey the laws, but yet the one’s enforcing the laws are breaking them over and over.

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
Edmund Burke

I will not remain silent as long as tyrannical law enforcement are walking the streets. I never fought for my country to become THIS. I have to stand up and fight for myself, my family, my friends and even the people of Hamilton, Tx.

I don’t know you but you deserve to be ruled fairly and justly according to the laws established by our forefathers. Stand with me and take action. Record every occasion you can , not to be rude, but to have accountability on both sides. It protects all involved and stops tyrannical behavior when evidence is being gathered against either party involved.

Let’s get everything going in a positive direction and start to appreciate and respect ourpolice, not hate and begrudge them due to their actions. The respect for law enforcement has dwindled and now people are afraid to even call the police due to what might happen. With this bunch, I don’t blame them. Let’s get some positive change and everyone can live in peace and justice and harmony with each other again. Let’s take action where action is due and let the people live freely and at peace.

The Police officers Oath:

“I……………………DO SWEAR,, THAT – I WILL WELL AND TRULY SERVE – OUR SOVEREIGN COUNTRY AND STATE – AS A POLICE OFFICER WITHOUT FAVOR OR AFFECTION – MALICE OR ILL-WILL – UNTIL I AM LEGALLY DISCHARGED, THAT I WILL SEE AND CAUSE OUR COMMUNITY’S PEACE TO BE KEPT AND
PRESERVED – AND THAT – I WILL PREVENT TO THE BEST OF MY POWER – ALL OFFENSES AGAINST THAT PEACE – AND THAT – WHILE I CONTINUE TO BE A POLICE OFFICER – I WILL – TO THE BEST OF MY SKILL AND KNOWLEDGE – DISCHARGE ALL THE DUTIES THEREOF – FAITHFULLY – ACCORDING TO LAW.
SO HELP ME GOD.”

  If a Law Enforcement Officer stops and asks for ID and you’ve committed NO Crime, NO ID has to be given and by them stopping you, they are committing the crime of Search(Asking for ID) & Seizure(because they stopped you from your normal daily business when no crime was committed)
U.S. Constitution – Amendment 4
Amendment 4 – Search and Seizure
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Only give a Law Enforcement Officer an ID if you have committed a criminal offense and don’t forget the word “Lawfully Arrested”…so if you have not committed a crime and not lawfully arrested, no ID is required to be given.
TEXAS PENAL CODE: CHAPTER 38. OBSTRUCTING GOVERNMENTAL OPERATION
§ 38.02. FAILURE TO IDENTIFY.
(a) A person commits an offense if he intentionally refuses to give his name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has lawfully arrested the person and requested the information.
(b) A person commits an offense if he intentionally gives a false or fictitious name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has:
(1) lawfully arrested the person;
(2) lawfully detained the person; or
(3) requested the information from a person that the peace officer has good cause to believe is a witness to a criminal offense.
(c) Except as provided by Subsections (d) and (e), an offense under this section is:
(1) a Class C misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (a); or
(2) a Class B misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (b).
(d) If it is shown on the trial of an offense under this section that the defendant was a fugitive from justice at the time of the offense, the offense is:
(1) a Class B misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (a); or
(2) a Class A misdemeanor if the offense is committed under Subsection (b).
(e) If conduct that constitutes an offense under this section also constitutes an offense under Section 106.07, Alcoholic Beverage Code, the actor may be prosecuted only under Section 106.07.
“Unfortunately, this is not unusual for Texas. Police officers in this state have an idea that they have the right to identify anyone at anytime for any or no reason. The courts have repeatedly slapped them down on this.
“The application of Tex. Penal Code Ann., Tit. 8, § 38.02 (1974), to detain appellant and require him to identify himself violated the Fourth Amendment because the officers lacked any reasonable suspicion to believe appellant was engaged or had engaged in criminal conduct.
Accordingly, appellant may not be punished for refusing to identify himself, and the conviction is Reversed.” Brown v. Texas, 443 U.S. 47 (1979).
“It is clear petitioner was arrested and convicted for his refusal to answer Officer Jennings’ question requesting that petitioner identify himself. This is impermissible even in the context of a lawful investigatory stop.” Spring v. Caldwell, 516 F. Supp. 1223 (S.D. Tex. 1981), reversed on other grounds 692 F.2d 994 (5th Cir. 1982).
“First, Officer Lowe obtained identification from each occupant of the automobile though he had no legal basis whatever for demanding them.” Lewis v. State, 664 S.W.2d 345 (Tex. Crim. App. 1984).
“Moreover, the Supreme Court has previously dealt with a case in which Texas police officers demanded that an individual identify himself even though they had no reasonable suspicion that he had committed a crime. In Brown v. Texas, the Court [11] ruled that Texas Penal Code Ann. § 38.02 (a), as enacted by the Texas legislature in 1974, was unconstitutional because it allowed an officer to stop and demand identification of an individual without any specific basis or belief that he was involved in criminal activity.” Weddle v. Ferrell, No. 3:99-CV-0453-G, 2000 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 2659, 2000 WL 256891 (N.D. Tex. 2000).
“Officers have the right to conduct an investigation of a driver following a traffic violation, but do not have authority to investigate a passenger without reasonable suspicion.” St. George v. State, 237 S.W.3d 720 (Tex. Crim. App. 2007) (holding that arrest of passenger for failure to identify not valid absent legal detention).

Yet we still see police officers demand identification in Texas and threaten arrest (or actually make arrest) on failure to identify when, in fact, no offense has occurred.

#1 For any Citation or Warning to be given to a Citizen, there are the 2 First Questions only to answer:
1. “Had notice that the entry was forbidden”…NO, it was a Daycare and I was there only to see if they wanted a Donation of Toys, nothing else.
2. “Received notice to depart but failed to do so”…NO, I left as soon as she was rude and told me to leave and never went back or had any reason to go back, so no need in the Police getting involved.
