California Deputies caught on camera beating a suspect

Cops beat crook on camera
Cops too dumb to realize that News Choppers may have cameras

An alleged horse thief went down in a swarm of San Bernardino Sheriff’s deputies Thursday while an NBC helicopter captured the brutal scene from above.

NBC reports the cops began chasing the man when he fled the scene of a search warrant—apparently in a Dodge minivan. Eventually he abandoned the car and continued his escape on stolen horseback.

Officers were eventually able to tase him off the horse—and thus commenced a two-minute beatdown so large some officers had to step back to let other officers get a chance to hit and kick the man.

The group surrounding the man grew up to five sheriff’s deputies as several appeared to kick, hit, and punch him dozens of times over a two-minute period. In the two minutes after the man was stunned with a Taser, it appeared deputies kicked him 12 times and punched him 29 times. Eleven blows appeared to be to the head as seen from aerial footage…

After the frenzy subsided, the man reportedly lay still, without any medical attention, for more than half an hour. A sheriff’s spokesperson tells NBC two officers were treated for dehydration and one may have been kicked by the horse.

I’m surprised the deputies didn’t shoot and kill the horse.

Sheriffs arrest three for cattle rustling — in a Honda Civic — WTF?

What do three men, a Honda Civic and a Holistein calf have in common?

Nothing more than a botched robbery attempt.

The Luna County Sheriff’s Office arrested three local men for larceny of livestock, conspiracy, lack of a bill of sale and exporting livestock. The larceny and conspiracy charges are felonies.

Jose Coronado, 26, Gerardo Gonzalez-Balderas, 20 and Salvador Balderas-Gonzalez, 23, were arrested early Friday morning at about 3 a.m. when a deputy initiated a traffic stop because the Honda Civic in which the three were traveling was speeding.

When he approached the vehicle, the deputy saw something he might never see again, a 220-pound calf sharing the backseat with one of the alleged thieves.

The three men, according to the LCSO report, work for a ranch in Sierra County. At first, the suspects told the LCSO they were allowed to have the calf, but later admitted they took it without permission.

Look on the bright side. At least there weren’t any charges for criminal sexual penetration.

Woman assaults coppers with breast milk

A lactating U.S. woman was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after she sprayed sheriff’s deputies with breast milk as they tried to remove her from a vehicle.

Ohio-resident Stephanie Robinette, 30, was arrested and charged with domestic violence and assault linked to a domestic dispute, as well as resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, according to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.

It said Robinette’s husband told authorities the pair had been attending a wedding when his wife got drunk and started a dispute. He said that she hit him multiple times before locking herself in her car outside a banquet facility on Saturday…

When deputies attempted to remove Robinette from the vehicle she advised the deputies that she was a breastfeeding mother and proceeded to remove her right breast from her dress and began spraying deputies and the vehicle with her breast milk…”

Robinette was later removed from the car and arrested after more deputies arrived on the scene.

Ah, the strength of a wild mother animal.

Especially if plastered.

Homeowner holds political fundraiser, no band – busted by Sheriff for noise complaint! Hostess arrested.

A fundraiser for Francine Busby, who is running for Congress, ended in chaos Friday night when sheriff’s deputies responded to a noise complaint, pepper-sprayed some of the guests and arrested the party’s hostess.

Shari Barman, 60, was booked into the Vista Detention Facility on suspicion of obstructing a peace officer and battery on a peace officer. She has since been released…

I have never seen anything like it. Most of the people were stunned,” Busby said, adding that there was no music or entertainment.

Pepper spray was dispersed on the crowd, and the deputies were able to reach Barman…and arrest her.

A statement from Busby’s office said a man shouted an “obscenity-laced tirade” from a wooded area as Busby spoke to the guests. It said about 25 mostly middle-aged guests…were “quietly chatting” when a deputy arrived and asked to speak to the homeowner.

Busby said she was outside the house at the time of the incident and saw some of it unfold.

“When the homeowner asked the deputy sheriff why he needed her date of birth, the deputy reacted by restraining the homeowner,” said Busby’s statement. “Alarmed guests pleaded with the deputy to let the 60-year-old homeowner go and stop hurting her. She had recently had shoulder surgery and was clearly in pain. His response was to spray the women with pepper spray which caused confusion and outrage.”

The event had been highlighted on Busby’s campaign Web site as an evening cocktail party hosted by Barman and her partner, Jane Stratton, who co-founded the Acura Classic tennis tournament in San Diego.

O.K.. San Diego coppers not certain who they’re serving – or who they’re protecting.

Deputies taser an undercover agent – WTF?

Deputies with their guns drawn shout at an armed man at a liquor store to get on the ground.

The man, Ira McQueen, is an agent with the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, but the deputies don’t know that.

They have been called to what a witness believed was an armed robbery at the business.

When McQueen, who is in civilian clothes, doesn’t comply with the deputies’ demands, a Taser stun gun is used on him. A Sheriff’s Office dog is also released on the man.

McQueen ends up in the hospital.

Read the whole article. Nothing is as simple as it sounds. Before or after reading the tale.

I’m still not really certain what happened here and neither are the coppers. I think the script was written by Monty Python.
