[WATCH] Sergeant With The Fulton County Correctional Facility Arrested For Terrorist Threats


JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. – Fulton County Sheriff, Richard Giardino reports that Eric Sweet, a sergeant at the Fulton County Correctional Facility was arrested yesterday afternoon after an investigation into comments he made at the correctional facility on Tuesday.

He allegedly said he would go into the control room, get a secured weapon, shoot the control room officer, put the facility on lock down and then shoot a lieutenant. The rest of his potential plans included to then drag a captain through the facility, making the captain watch as he shot at inmates and other correction officers.

The sergeant admitted making the statements said it was a joke and that he was just venting.

Sheriff Giardino immediately placed him on administrative leave and he was arrested on making terrorist threats.

The sheriff said in this day and age just stating such things raises all kinds of red flags. It elevates seriousness when it’s a member of law enforcement.

According to reports, Sweet had had numerous issues with the administration last year. The fact that he was so detailed in his plan shows his intent and goes against the fact that it was just a “joke”. Sheriff Giardino said Sweet is innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt.

Sweet is scheduled to be back in court next week.

[WATCH] Pittsburgh Police Sergeant Sentenced To 27 Months In Prison For Use of Excessive Force

PITTSBURGH – A former Pittsburgh police sergeant will spend 27 months in prison for a fight with a fan outside Heinz Field two years ago.

Sgt. Stephen Matakovich was in court Wednesday for sentencing. A jury had previously found him guilty of violating the subject’s civil rights by use of excessive force.

Matakovich must also pay restitution.

The victim’s mother took the stand during the hearing and asked for Matakovich to be sent to prison.

“It’s hard watching your son being beaten like that. We teach our children to respect police officers then this happens and I think it’s just a blemish on the Pittsburgh police, on all police,” Sherry Despres said.

Matakovich asked for leniency saying he wanted to be present for his two daughters.

Matakovich’s defense attorneys had argued against imprisonment, saying he had led an “honorable and lawful life.”

But the pre-sentence report detailed a pattern of questionable arrests involving Matakovich over several years, and states that he “never used the lowest amount of force available.”

In 56 cases of arrests involving some resistance, 20 involved Matakovich using closed fist strikes to the head and face, and of those, 17 resulted in injuries to the subject such as a “broken nose, broken jaw, or being knocked unconscious.”

There were 34 complaints filed against him at the Office of Municipal Investigations. Eleven being complaints by citizens alleging use of excessive force. The substantiated claims involved allegations of excessive force, false arrest and failing to report the use of a Taser.

Georgia Police Sergeant Nathan VanBuren Convicted of Bribery and Fraud


A jury has convicted a former Cumming Police Sergeant of accepting bribes and computer fraud.

Nathan VanBuren, 35, responded to a 911 call to a home where he arrested a citizen. In July and August of 2015, it was discovered that VanBuren had additional communications with the citizen he arrested.

During those communications, VanBuren asked the citizen for a loan under the lie that his wages were being garnished and he had incurred financial debt due to his son’s medical and surgical expenses when in fact none of those things were true.

While cooperating with law enforcement, the citizen provided VanBuren with $5,000 in response to his repeated requests for money. VanBuren also used $1,000 in order to unlawfully access a law enforcement database and provided the results of a search for that citizen, according to the court.

VanBuren resigned before he was terminated.

“VanBuren broke the very laws he swore to uphold and enforce,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak.

“Police officers are afforded respect, and are expected to model integrity and honesty. This former officer undermined the hard work of other officers who serve, as well as the community’s trust and respect for the police.”

“The FBI is charged with the unfortunate but necessary task of investigating police misconduct, to include corruption. That was the case with the allegations received involving then Cumming Police Sgt. VanBuren, which resulted in his federal indictment and today’s convictions via jury trial. The FBI continues to ask the public to do its part by reporting all allegations of public corruption, to include those involving law enforcement, to their nearest FBI field office for prompt action,” said David J. LeValley, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Atlanta Field Office.

Soldier admits to helping Sergeant kill his Army wife PFC McClaine

    

One of the two Fort Campbell Soldiers on trial in the slaying of Private First Class (PFC) Shadow McClaine. SPC Charles Robinson pleaded guilty Thursday morning saying he was supposed to be paid $10,000 dollars by PFC Shadow McClaine’s ex-husband Sergeant Jamal Williams-McCray to help him kill her and hide the body.

Army SPC Charles Robinson III faced a court-martial Thursday morning at Fort Campbell in the slaying of Private First Class (PFC) Class McClaine, who went missing around Sept. 2, 2016. Her car was found Sept. 13 in Nashville. Her skeletal remains were found off Interstate 24 in Robertson County on Jan. 23.

As the proceeding began, Army SPC Charles Robinson pleaded guilty to unpremeditated murder, conspiracy to commit murder and obstruction of justice.

He told the judge that PFC McClaine’s ex-husband, Sergeant (SGT) Jamal Williams-McCray, agreed to pay him to help kill Private First Class McClaine his ex-wife.

(SGT) Jamal Williams-McCray lured PFC McClaine to Exit 11 of Interstate 24 to take part in a scavenger hunt, SPC Robinson said.

After she arrived, SPC Charles Robinson III cut her throat, stabbed her and broke her neck, he said. Both Soldiers then took her body to Exit 18, in Robertson County and hid her body.

As far back as June 1 2016, Sergeant (SGT) Jamal Williams-McCray talked to SPC Robinson about his decision to help him kill PFC Shadow McClaine. The discussion finalized at SPC Robinson home on Fort Campbell on Aug 15, 2016, when he agreed to kill her for $10,000 thousand dollars.

Sergeant (SGT) Jamal Williams-McCray called his ex-wife about a scavenge hunt game he was playing and needed her assistance she agreed to help him.

PFC Shadow McCray meet her ex-husband and they both began digging a hole around the exit 11 area because she thought it was part of scavenge hunt game, Sergeant (SGT) Jamal Williams-McCray told her about.

SPC Charles Robinson then appeared in dark clothing pretending to be a property owner who was upset they were trespassing and told them to get down on their knees because he was going to search them and hold them until the police arrived.

SPC Robinson then pretend to search Sergeant Jamal McCray and found the gun and the box cutter he knew would be there, he grabbed the weapons and proceed towards PFC Shadow McClaine, he pulled her pony tail back and slashed her neck with the box cutter but he didn’t do a good job. He then stabbed her in her lower back with his own knife, and then he used it again to slash her neck then finally broke her neck.

Both SGT Williams-McCray and SPC Robinson took her lifeless body and loaded in the back of SPC Robinson pickup and drove towards exit 24. He stated during the testimony.

SPC Robinson stated after the murder SGT Williams-McCray only paid him $200 of the agreed $10,000 dollars.

SPC Charles Robinson III could face life without parole.

Both Army Soldiers are with the 101st Airborne Division, they were both charged with conspiracy to commit kidnapping and murder, kidnapping, premeditated murder and obstruction of justice.

The husband SGT Williams-McCray also faces charges of rape. At a preliminary hearing in April, a government prosecutor said PFC Shawdow McClaine was killed to silence her after she accused her ex-husband of rape, though at one point she recanted.

SGT Williams-McCray court martial has not yet been scheduled. According to her mother, the two had been divorced for about a year and a half.

This is a developing story.

White NYPD Sergeant Refuses To Bully Black Officer Then Internally Targeted






white

A white NYPD sergeant says he wouldn’t go along with the harassment of a black officer — and now he claims that he’s being subjected to harsh treatment for his refusals.

Sgt. Valentin Khazin’s Brooklyn federal lawsuit argues that he was targeted with unjustified payback because he wouldn’t help make life miserable for Officer Dana Harge — who’s got his own pending Manhattan federal suit alleging racial discrimination in the elite Highway Patrol unit.

Because Khazin wouldn’t play ball, he claims his own life is being made miserable.

Khazin has been transferred from Highway Patrol and claims he’s under constant scrutiny. He says he’s seen his overtime slashed — but then become swamped with extra work, especially during holidays, to keep him away from his family.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Khazin, 32, told the Daily News.

Harge was doing his job, said Khazin, who is white. And when the sergeant brought it up that he felt superiors had it out for Harge because of his discrimination complaints, Khazin said he “signed my own death warrant.”

This past Father’s Day, the 32-year-old father of a 1- and 2-year-old, said he was kept on duty almost 24 hours because there allegedly weren’t others to help out.

Eric Sanders, Khazin’s lawyer, said what happened to his client is an example of what happens to people who don’t go along to get along.

Khazin was “one of the few people not afraid to take on the department and sue them. I hear about this stuff all time. It’s just a matter of anyone taking any action,” said Sanders.

The suit, filed Thursday, doesn’t just allege retaliation connected to Harge.

Khazin says Highway Patrol brass imposed “performance goals or quotas” of 70 summonses per officer for two platoons and 50 summonses per officer in another platoon.

Khazin’s suit also claims he was ordered in January to lower the performance rating of another black officer because she filed a discrimination complaint against a sergeant.

Khazin told The News he always hoped to make it to the Highway Patrol.

He finally got there in 2015, coming in as a sergeant and ultimately assigned to Highway Patrol Three, which is primarily responsible for the Grand Central Parkway in Queens.

Khazin told The News as soon as he got there, brass told him to keep an eye on Harge, who supposedly was a troublemaker and a “do nothing.”

So Khazin kept his eye on Harge and discovered “all he does is his job. He does it as well as anyone else.”
