” Everyone knows that Craigslist is a magnet for crime.
The ubiquitous listing site is the tenth most-highly trafficked website in the United States and has been the go-to place for people looking for everything from used lawn furniture to no-questions-asked sexual partners for nearly two decades. And as with nearly anything that smashes together great swaths of humanity, Craigslist is unavoidably utilized by individuals whose intentions are less than pure.
So everyone knows that Craigslist deals carry certain risks. Yet it’s still difficult to get a big-picture perspective of both the scale and the general tenor of crime on Craigslist.
To this end, we attempted to take a snapshot of what crime on Craigslist actually looks like by collecting every news story that mentioned a crime committed using Craigslist in the United States during the month of April and displayed that information on a single Google map*. Is this method scientific? Not even close. But it does allow us to view crime facilitated by the listing site in fresh light.”

” As a police officer with the Little Silver Police Department, Steven Solari was the person placing handcuffs on the wrists of criminals.
On Thursday, however, the 40-year-old Solari was the one walking out of a Monmouth County courtroom handcuffed and en route to prison.
Superior Court Judge Francis Vernoia sentenced Solari to five years in prison, without the possibility of parole, after a jury found Solari guilty of four counts of official misconduct in October, as well as one count each of simple assault and hindering his own apprehension.
The charges stemmed from a Dec. 20, 2009 incident when Solari admittedly punched an intoxicated, but handcuffed, man multiple times in the head.”
” A police chief is facing charges after an alleged confrontation with a man in a grocery store parking lot.
Cedar Grove Police Chief Aaron Roop, 31, has been charged with misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor brandishing.
According to the criminal complaint, on February 16, Roop confronted a man and two women in the parking lot of a grocery store in Smithers and told the man, “(Name) the next time you threaten my wife and child with a firearm, I will slice your throat and kill you.” “

” The woman, Brandy Berning, was pulled over by Broward Sheriff Deputy William O’Brien after driving in the carpool lane on Interstate 95.
Berning immediately pulled out her cellphone and began audio recording the encounter, informing O’Brien several moments after he arrived to her driver side door.
“ Oh, I forgot to tell you I was recording our conversation,” Berning says.
Although Florida currently has a two-party consent law, which dictates that both parties must consent to being recorded, the supreme court has upheld that police officers do not have an expectation of privacy while working in public, therefore can be recorded without prior approval.
“ Ok, well I have to tell you that you’ve just committed a felony,” O’Brien says.
Confused at the false claim, Berning barely has time to react as the deputy begins demanding the phone, now heading towards the passenger side door.
“ You are committing a felony. Hand me the phone,” O’Brien says.
Berning can be heard demanding O’Brien leave her vehicle as the deputy climbs in and begins physically attempting to take the device.
“ I know the law better than you, believe me,” O’Brien says as Berning refuses to comply.”
Apparently Deputy O’Brien does not know the law better than Ms Berning and after assaulting her over the “felony” recording “crime” he didn’t even charge her for it …

After enduring a night in jail the Sheriff’s office had second thoughts .
” After being forced to spend the night in jail, all of Berning’s charges were quietly dropped, giving more credibility to the idea that O’Brien’s only goal was illegal intimidation. Berning has now filed suit against the Broward Sheriff’s Department.”

” This video shows the hilarious moment a woman talked her way into a 300-day prison sentence for contempt of court.
Ebony Burks, 32, appeared in Elyria Municipal Court, Ohio, accused of domestic violence and assault. Speaking to her over video feed, judge Gary Bennett told her she was not to have contact with either of the victims involved.
Burks took issue with the fact she would not be able to contact or see her grandfather, Shedrick McCray, because she lived in his house.
After she lost her cool, Burks was initially handed down 30 days by Judge Bennett. But as she continued to argue and speak aggressively towards the judge, he gradually increased the prison sentence.”
” Police Chief Todd Schmaderer and 32 of his officers—nearly four percent of the department—are listed in a federal lawsuit filed Monday accusing police of excessive force and illegal search and seizure.
The lawsuit stems from a highly publicized caught-on-tape incident last March 21.
The video—shot by a member of the public— shows a police officer (see video below) throwing a man to the ground and hitting him several times, while a dozen other officers storm a home across the street.
Sharon Johnson issued this statement:
Officers entered the home while I was watching from the front door. Juaquez enters and next thing I know an officer enters, throws my wheelchair and me out of the way. I end up with the wheelchair on top of me, my legs in the air. Several officers continued to walk over me as they entered the house. I eventually rolled my way into the living room and got myself upright. I saw Juaquez surrounded by officers and started asking what was going on. I ended up in handcuffs. It wasn’t until a family member came by later that I was able to get back into my wheelchair. I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. I still have physical pain from that day.”

” For more than eight long minutes, Raymond Rodden, who is no stranger to PINAC, was allowed to stand on a public sidewalk and video record a woman going through a sobriety test with a Tucson police officer.
Rodden continued recording even after the woman’s friend walked up to him, telling him he was not allowed to record her friend.
Rodden calmly assured her he was allowed, not even getting upset when the woman kept placing her hand in front of his lens.
A nearby police officer, of course, sided with the woman, telling him to turn off the camera.”

“Say something again. Say something again, I dare you, I double dare you motherfucker, say something one more Goddamn time! – KNOW YOUR RIGHTS – http://policecrimes.com/police.html – The Supreme Court recommends that you DON’T talk to police officers, but you must say out loud “I’M GOING TO REMAIN SILENT.” There’s no law that requires you or your teenagers to talk or answer any questions from a police officer, just say “I’M GOING TO REMAIN SILENT.” Talking to a police officer can be very dangerous!
First Video ‘Of NYPD Undercover Cop At Scene Of Brutal Road Rage Attack’ As It’s Claimed He ‘Went Rogue’ And ‘Forgot What Side Of The Law He Was On’
” The first video that appears to show an undercover cop charged for taking part in the brutal gang bike attack on a family in their SUV, can be revealed today.
It comes amid claims that he may have ‘gone rogue’ after spending too long undercover, according to a report.”
” Detective Wojciech Braszczok may have become so immersed in his cover story that he forgot himself when he allegedly took part in the assault, suggested a DNAinfo source.
In an echo of films like Donnie Brasco – in which an undercover cop feels the strain of his double life – Braszczok may have stepped over the line.
A source said: ‘Sometimes an undercover spends too much time in a role, becomes the character and forgets what side of the law he is on’.”
” An off-duty undercover NYPD cop was among the pack of bikers who chased a family up the West Side Highway — and he stood by as the dad was hauled from his car and beaten, sources told The Post.
The unidentified officer waited three days to come forward Wednesday night. He has been placed on modified duty and turned in his gun and badge on Friday, the sources said.
He rides with the New Rochelle-based Front Line Soldiers, a club that also counts several other cops among its members, a source said.
Internal Affairs is investigating whether those cops, too, were among the bikers — and whether they also witnessed the assault that left Internet exec Alexian Lien bleeding on the pavement as his wife and toddler cowered in their black Range Rover.”
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
” Celebrity news from the United Kingdom: In April, Germaine Greer, the Australian feminist and author of The Female Eunuch, was leaving her house in East Anglia, when a young woman accosted her, forced her back inside, tied her up, smashed her glasses, and then set about demolishing her ornaments with a poker.
A couple of weeks before that, the 85-year-old mother of Phil Collins, the well-known rock star, was punched in the ribs, the back, and the head on a West London street, before her companion was robbed. “That’s what you have to expect these days,” she said, philosophically.
Anthea Turner, the host of Britain’s top-rated National Lottery TV show, went to see the West End revival of Grease with a friend. They were spotted at the theatre by a young man who followed them out and, while their car was stuck in traffic, forced his way in and wrenched a diamond-encrusted Rolex off the friend’s wrist.
A week before that, the 94-year-old mother of Ridley Scott, the director of Alien and other Hollywood hits, was beaten and robbed by two men who broke into her home and threatened to kill her. “
” A few months ago, Shirley Best, owner of the Rolander Fashion boutique whose clients include the daughter of the Princess Royal, was ironing some garments when two youths broke in. They pressed the hot iron into her side and stole her watch, leaving her badly burnt.
“I was frightened to defend myself,” said Miss Best. “I thought if I did anything I would be arrested.”
And who can blame her? Shortly before the attack, she’d been reading about Tony Martin, a Norfolk farmer whose home had been broken into and who had responded by shooting and killing the teenage burglar. He was charged with murder. In April, he was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment—for defending himself against a career criminal in an area where the police are far away and reluctant to have their sleep disturbed.
Norfolk is a remote rural corner of England. It ought to be as peaceful and crime-free as my remote rural corner of New England. But it isn’t. Old impressions die hard: Americans still think of Britain as a low-crime country. Conversely, the British think of America as a high-crime country. But neither impression is true. The overall crime rate in England and Wales is 60 percent higher than that in the United States. True, in America you’re more likely to be shot to death. On the other hand, in England you’re more likely to be strangled to death. But in both cases, the statistical likelihood of being murdered at all is remote, especially if you steer clear of the drug trade. When it comes to anything else, though—burglary, auto theft, armed robbery, violent assault, rape—the crime rate reaches deep into British society in ways most Americans would find virtually inconceivable.
I cite those celebrity assaults not because celebrities are more prone to wind up as crime victims than anyone else, but only because the measure of a civilized society is how easily you can insulate yourself from its snarling underclass. In America, if you can make it out of some of the loonier cities, it’s a piece of cake, relatively speaking. In Britain, if even a rock star or TV supremo can’t insulate himself, nobody can. “
” The Hurst, Texas police officer that was caught on film physically and verbally assaulting a 17-year-old boy has been fired, according to NBC-DFW.
“Hurst police officer Disraeli Arnold has been fired after being recorded on video threatening a teen and using profane language,” NBCDFW.com states.
In the video, Arnold can be seen running up to his fellow officer and landing a knee to Rodriguez’s head.
Arnold proceeded to verbally lash out at Rodriguez, yelling, “MOVE AND DIE. MOVE AND F***ING DIE. YOU GONNA MOVE AGAIN? F***ING MOVE AGAIN. F***ING MOVE AGAIN.”
The frothing officer then turned to the person filming and threatened him as well, saying, “You too, you f***ing move if you want to.” “
” As we have exhaustively highlighted, no matter how much they may bow up to you, filming police is a lawful act that has been upheld by a First Court of Appeals ruling as well as a recent Supreme Court decision. So remember to keep your cell phone charged at all times. “

” Two women from Irving, Texas are suing state troopers and the head of their department in federal court after they say they were forced to endure an illegal and humiliating “roadside body cavity search” during a routine traffic stop, The Dallas Morning News reports.
The case is currently under investigation by the public integrity division of the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office and will go before a grand jury in January.
The dash-mounted camera on a trooper’s vehicle reportedly captured the entire incident on video. Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece Ashley Dobbs, 24, say the unlawful search happened on the night of July 13 along a state highway.
