[WATCH] Video Shows Bexar County Deputies Wrestling Sick Deputy to the Ground


SAN ANTONIO – A Bexar County Sheriff’s deputy is recovering after being restrained and stunned multiple times by another deputy at the Bexar County Jail.

A source contacted KENS 5 after witnessing the ordeal almost two weeks ago.

The BCSO employee tells us the sick deputy was mistaken for someone who was being disorderly.

Video shows the aftermath as the corporal struggled to free himself on September 29.

The video also shows Special Emergency Response Team (SERT) officers holding down the corporal who was handcuffed and had his legs shackled.

A sergeant is heard on the video saying, “He just popped him, he just popped him on my orders.”

According to an internal document obtained by KENS 5, a SERT officer used a Taser on the sick corporal three times.

The video shows Taser prongs still in the corporal minutes after being deployed.

The memo says this all started when the Sergeant found the corporal standing up against a wall.

The Sergeant told investigators the corporal was acting strange and ignoring him.

The Sergeant, according to the documents, ordered a SERT officer to pull his Taser, which was then deployed when the officer says the sick corporal tried to hit his leg.

“Take me out of the handcuffs, they’re cutting off my circulation. I’m asking for a little bit of help,” said the corporal while deputies tried to get him on a gurney.

According to the internal document, the corporal told investigators, “I was feeling dizzy, trying to hold myself up on the wall. I was spitting up blood. I didn’t have any time to respond.”

The corporal went on to say, “I have had this happen before, but I was taken care of by my fellow, first shift officers. I wasn’t wrestled to the floor and cycled for 3 times.”

[WATCH] Dash Cam Video Shows Pinellas County Police Officers Beating and Choking a Man


PINELLAS PARK, Florida – Dash cam video from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office appears to show deputies beating and choking a man.

The sheriff’s office is now investigating the arrest of the 25-year-old in the footage.

The man’s lawyer says the videotape clearly shows excessive force. Attorney Michele Rayner calls the video disturbing and says her client, Jimarez Reed did nothing to provoke or deserve being treated this way by the group of deputies.

The sheriff’s office would only confirm there’s an open and active internal affairs investigation into the incident.

The footage from 11:30 p.m. May 25 starts with a cruiser speeding to a Pinellas Park home.

A group of people were hanging out at a house and someone called the authorities on Jimarez Reed, telling officials he had a gun.

In the video, Reed ducks behind a car, seemingly panicked as deputies arrive.

“Get on the ground!” one of the deputies yells.

For the next five minutes, the audio is muted but the camera captured the struggle.

Reed lays flat and puts both hands out. A deputy gets on top of him and punches him seven times on his head.

“Don’t kill me please. Let me go, let me go, bro,” Reed yells.

The deputy then pulls Reed’s head up by his hair.

Other deputies join in as well as man Rayner says is a bystander. They pile on and continue hitting Reed.

“You see the video, you see the officer, the first thing he does he jumps on him and just starts wailing on him,” Rayner describes.

When the audio comes back on, moaning can be heard. Rayner says it’s coming from Reed.

Witnesses tell FOX 13 Reed’s face was cut and bleeding. He was taken to the hospital and needed stitches.

Brevard County Deputy Sheriff Found Guilty in Child Sex Case


BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — A guilty verdict has been returned against a former Brevard County deputy sheriff accused of sex crimes against a girl.

Joseph Pallante, whose arrest grabbed headlines in 2014, was found guilty on all major counts against him.

Pallante took the stand Tuesday and tried to persuade a jury to keep him out of prison.

Pallante argued that prosecutors confused a harmless nudist lifestyle with criminal activity, and said that the victim lied about what he did to her.

“These sexual abuse allegations are absolutely ludicrous. I did nothing but protect (her) and take care of her,” Pallante said.

The allegations, according to prosecutors and a police report, are shocking. Pallante, a former Brevard County Sheriff’s Office deputy and criminal defense attorney, is charged with 55 crimes. They include forcing a young girl under 10 into sex acts, giving her vodka to drink and showing her pornography and then forcing her to do what was shown in the pornography.

“That absolutely never happened. She actually looked up the pornography, and I caught her looking it up,” Pallante said.

The police report said it all happened in Pallante’s Satellite Beach home, multiple times every month. According to the report, if the victim did not comply, Pallante would throw her around the room.

“I don’t understand why she made the allegations against me,” Pallante said.

Pallante’s defense was to utterly deny what the girl told police. He denied being obsessed with the victim and denied writing a song about her. He explained that nude images of him and the girl were not pornographic, and were nothing but harmless nudity.

The prosecution and defense both rested Tuesday afternoon.

Bucks County Deputy Sheriff Charged With Indecent Exposure, Open Lewdness and Disorderly Conduct

Stephen Springfield, 39, of Bristol Township.

A Bucks County deputy sheriff has been accused of exposing himself to a woman at Silver Lake Park.

Stephen Springfield, 39, of Bristol Township, was charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness and disorderly conduct — all misdemeanors — Saturday night.

Springfield aimed his cell phone at a woman from his red pickup truck, which was parked in the parking lot off Bath Road, and tried to show her pornography on Oct. 3, said two county officials in an affidavit of probable cause.

When the woman ignored him, the officials said, Springfield “jiggled a bag of Starburst Chews out of his window,” asking the woman if she wanted any. When the woman declined, Springfield continued to ask whether she wanted any Skittles or Smarties instead — again, he was rebuffed, according to the affidavit.

That’s when the deputy sheriff exposed himself, said the county officials. As he did so, he allegedly tried to lure the woman into his truck by asking her if she liked pornography, adding that he liked it, according to the affidavit.

At that point, the woman then left Silver Lake Park, but she saw Springfield in his truck again during two return visits she made to the park later in the week, the officials wrote. On Wednesday, she saw Springfield asking a “10- to 12-year-old boy” on a bicycle questions; she approached, told the boy to stay away and Springfield to leave and “not come back,” according to the affidavit. When the woman saw Springfield at the park again Friday, she took a cellphone photograph of his license plate and later called park rangers, the officials said. The park rangers went to the park, but did not find Springfield.

[WATCH] Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Deputy Pulls Gun on Motorcyclist While Driving Because He Was in Fear


ALBUQUERQUE – A video captures the moment a Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Deputy pulled his gun on a motorcyclist while the two are traveling on Tramway. BCSO is now explaining the incident.

The video has surfaced on several social media platforms and accounts with its original source unclear.

The video shows a motorcyclist doing a wheelie on Tramway Saturday afternoon, when a BCSO patrol car pulls alongside him. A passenger deputy can be see drawing his gun and aiming it at the motorcyclist as the two vehicles go through an intersection.

BCSO confirmed that is the deputy’s service weapon – not a taser. BCSO says deputies received several calls Saturday of this group of roughly 50 bikers racing and driving recklessly in the Heights.

Deputies says what’s not shown in the picture and video is the bikers flashing gang signs and surrounding deputies as they tried to pull them over.

The sheriff’s office says the deputy who pulled the gun was ‘in fear of an immediate and impending battery.’

BCSO would not release any more information, but they are asking anyone who knows the identity of the biker to come forward.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office released this statement:

After receiving an overwhelming number of responses and messages from our community we would like to reassure citizens the incident clearly warrants further investigation. We are seeking any eyewitnesses of this incident. We are thankful for everyone’s comments and messages. Please rest assured, Sheriff Manuel Gonzales III and BCSO staff will continue to protect the rights of all citizens of Bernalillo County. Incidents like this are taken serious and a thorough investigation will be conducted.

[WATCH] Muscogee County Sheriff’s Deputy Stole More Than 1,000 Pills From Drug Take-Back Program


A Muscogee County sheriff’s deputy stole more than 1,000 pills from the Drug Take-Back program that encourages the public to give their unwanted medication to officials for proper disposal, Sheriff Donna Tompkins said.

“It’s very sad anytime, for us, one of our own is not upholding our high standards but certainly it makes me more concerned,” she said Friday morning during a press conference. “These are a lot of drugs and everything you have access to.”

Cpl. Bridget Goolsby, who has been with the sheriff’s department for 18 years, was placed on paid administrative leave. She faces one count of violation of oath by a public officer and numerous drug charges.

The Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office launched its Drug-Take Back program in 2014 as a partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency. It allows residents to leave their unwanted medication in drop boxes at area businesses on certain days, so officials can dispose of it in a safe manner.

A drop box was kept on the fourth floor of the Government Center all year around.

Tompkins said her administration reviewed the program and determined that it lacked adequate controls to ensure accountability when it was launched in 2014.

“Between May and July of this year, I began to make changes in the procedures for how these drugs and how this program was to be operated and how the drugs were to be collected and stored to provide for better controls and accountability for these pharmaceuticals,” she said.

Since 2015, Goolsby was responsible for collecting medication deposited in those drop boxes. That duty was given to the drug custodian on July 11 and all of the keys for the drug boxes were collected from Goolsby, authorities said.

[WATCH] Family Accuses Collier County Deputies of Beating Man to Death


COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -A Chokoloskee family is accusing Collier County Sheriff Deputies of beating a man to death after he died in their custody.

Devan Rewis, 31, was arrested on Sept. 15 after being pulled over for breaking curfew following Hurricane Irma.

The sheriff’s office said during the traffic stop, Rewis attempted to run from deputies and attacked officers as they tried to handcuff him.

Officers used a stun gun and needed to control Rewis forcefully.

“There’s no reason to Taser and beat and Taser and beat and pepper spray someone like that and refuse their call for help,” Rewis’ aunt, Martha Daniels, said.

The day after his arrest, Rewis was found unresponsive in his cell.

Deputies are now waiting for a toxicology report to determine the cause of death.

This incident wasn’t Rewis’ first run-in with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office. He faced multiple drug arrests in the past. The toxicology report will indicate if drugs had anything to do with his death.

Rewis’ family believes that drugs had nothing to do with his death and that deputies targeted him due to his past.

The deputy that arrested Rewis has been disciplined the the sheriff’s office before, causing concern for the family.

Rewis’ family hopes the sheriff’s office investigates the case with this in mind.

The sheriff’s office is waiting on the full autopsy report which will include a toxicology report. There is an internal investigation underway at the sheriff’s office. No deputies involved in the case are on leave.

Opioid addiction is bankrupting America, county by county, city by city… will America collapse into a narco-pharma state?

Image: Opioid addiction is bankrupting America, county by county, city by city… will America collapse into a narco-pharma state?

(Natural News)
We’ve heard a lot about the crime and deaths caused by the opioid crisis, but what about the financial impact of it? Many small towns are struggling to cover the costs associated with the epidemic, whether it’s emergency calls, coroner bills, courtrooms, or overcrowded prisons.

Reuters recently examined the case of Ross County, Ohio, which has seen its budget for child services doubling from $1.3 million to $2.4 million in just five years. Three fourths of the children placed into protection there come from parents with opioid addictions; that proportion stood at just 40 percent five years ago. The county’s general fund is only $23 million to begin with, so now they are considering places they can make cuts to foot the bill, and it appears that economic development schemes and youth programs could be axed as a result.

Meanwhile, the toxicology and autopsy costs in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, have gone from $89,000 in 2010 to $165,0000 in 2016, and prosecuting crimes related to opioids and providing public defenders to the accused is sending court costs through the roof. Mercer County, West Virginia, meanwhile, expects its county jail expenses to rise by $100,000 this year, with 90 percent of the extra costs said to be related to opioids. West Virginia led the nation in the number of drug overdoses for the third year in a row in 2015.

According to a 2011 study published in Pain Medicine, healthcare costs associated with prescription opioid abuse were $25 billion, while criminal justice system expenses were $5.1 billion. Workplaces, however, had the biggest cost, with lost earnings and employment amounting to $25.6 billion. The total cost of the crisis to the economy was estimated at the time to be $55.7 billion, and it’s only growing.

How did the situation become so dire?

Opioids – which include prescription painkillers as well as heroin and fentanyl – are 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine, and they’re highly addictive. Many of those who find themselves caught up in their web started out with prescription painkillers and then moved on to drugs like heroin, and some pharmaceutical companies have been spending a lot of money encouraging doctors to prescribe these drugs through kickbacks and other incentives to create new addicts.

Their encouragements are clearly working; the National Survey of Drug Use and Health indicates that 97.5 million Americas took prescription painkillers in 2015. Opioid abuse is responsible for the deaths of more than 100 Americans each day, and drug overdose deaths have tripled since 2000.

Will Big Pharma ever be held accountable?

The city of Everett, Washington is one of many launching lawsuits against the makers of opioids. Everett is suing the makers of OxyContin for their role in the epidemic after experiencing unusually high numbers of overdose deaths. They are suing Purdue for negligence, saying they placed profits over the welfare of people and caused substantial damages to the city. The company already pleaded guilty in 2007 to charges it misled patients and doctors about the drug’s addictive properties.

Meanwhile, the attorneys general from 41 states are widening their investigation into the sales and marketing practices of the opioid industry. Five Big Pharma firms have been served subpoenas requesting information as investigators seek to find out if their actions exacerbated the epidemic. It’s about time they are held accountable for their contribution to this crisis, which is bankrupting our nation city by city and state by state, prompting fears that if nothing is done, American could collapse into a narco-pharma state.
