Mother sues police for killing teenage son

Wed Sep 14, 2011 11:51AM GMT

Reddit

A mother has filed a federal lawsuit after her 14-year-old son got into a fight at a school bus stop and was later shot to death by a police officer while her son was hiding in a shed.

The lawsuit, filed by Denys Lopez Moreno against the Northside Independent School District of San Antonio, the district's Chief of Police John Page and school district police officer Daniel Alvarado, seeks punitive damages for civil rights violations, supervisory liability and negligence. Raw Story

HIGHLIGHTS

Lopez says her son, Derek, got into a fight with another boy at a school bus stop and punched the other boy once, in November 2010.

"Defendant, Alvarado, having responded to a call regarding a bus with a flat tire, witnessed Derek strike the other boy. He ordered Derek to 'freeze.' Derek hesitated and then ran from defendant Alvarado," according to the complaint. Courthouse News Service

Lopez says her son jumped over a fence and hid in a shed in the back yard of a house. The homeowner saw him, called 911, and alerted a neighbor, who pointed Alvarado in Derek's direction. Lopez says her son never left the shed, never approached the house or threatened the homeowner or her daughters, and posed no threat to anyone. Courthouse News Service

Nonetheless, she says: "In violation of NISD police department procedures, Alvarado drew his weapon immediately after exiting the patrol car. With his gun drawn, he rushed through the gate and into the back yard. Within seconds from arriving at the residence, Alvarado shot and killed the unarmed boy hiding in the shed." Courthouse News Service

According to the autopsy, the bullet went into the Lopez's chest and ricocheted off his pancreas, colon, right liver and left kidney and exited the teen's stomach. RT

Derek fought for his life for nearly an hour before passing away. RT

Officer Alvarado had been reprimanded 16 times in the past four years, suspended without pay five times and almost fired for insubordination. Even still, the school insisted on keeping him in uniform. RT

The mother said the district acted with "deliberate indifference" by keeping Alvarado on the force with his alleged disciplinary record. ibtimes.com

LA County Sheriff Dept. sued for brutality, abuse
Thu Jan 19, 2012 2:59PM GMT



The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit Wednesday, accusing Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department brass of failing to root out deputy brutality inside the county's jails.

The lawsuit details multiple allegations of inmate abuse and alleges Sheriff Lee Baca and his top executives are "aware of the culture of deputy violence that pervades the Jails but have failed to take reasonable measures to remedy the problem." The ACLU is a court-appointed monitor of jailhouse conditions.

Accusations of deputy brutality in the jails have been common for years. The FBI is investigating allegations of abuse and other deputy misconduct inside the jails. LA Times

FACTS & FIGURES

Numerous human rights observers have raised concerns about increased police brutality in the U.S. in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center. An extensive report prepared for the United Nations Human Rights Committee tabled in 2006 states that in the United States, the "War on Terror" has "created a generalized climate of impunity for law enforcement officers, and contributed to the erosion of what few accountability mechanisms exist for civilian control over law enforcement agencies. As a result, police brutality and abuse persist unabated and undeterred across the country." UNCHR

Cases in which police, prison guards and other law enforcement authorities have used excessive force or other tactics to violate victims' civil rights have increased 25 from fiscal years 2001 to 2007 over the previous seven years. USA Today

Recent Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch reports confirm that prison guard brutality is common in the U.S. A 2006 Human Rights Watch report revealed that five state prison systems permit the use of aggressive, unmuzzled dogs on prisoners as part of cell removal procedures.

FBI arrests 4 Connecticut cops for harassing Latinos
Tue Jan 24, 2012 10:39PM GMT



U.S. Attorney David B. Fein, left, speaks about an indictment charging four East Haven police officers with federal civil rights offenses during a press conference in Bridgeport, Conn. on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012.

Four police officers, including the president of the local police union, were arrested Tuesday by the FBI on charges that they assaulted illegal immigrants and created false reports to cover up abuses in a New Haven suburb where a federal investigation found life was made miserable for Hispanics.

The East Haven officers assaulted individuals while they were handcuffed, unlawfully searched Latino businesses, and harassed and intimidated individuals, including advocates, witnesses and other officers who tried to investigate or report misconduct or abuse the officers committed. newsday.com

HIGHLIGHTS

Sgt. John Miller and officers David Cari, Dennis Spaulding and Jason Zullo -- are accused of routinely injuring, threatening and intimidating Latinos with false arrests, false reports and harassment, according to the federal indictment. Reuters

Federal authorities began investigating police in 2009 in East Haven, where the federal probe last month documented a pattern of abuse. Latino business owners said rough treatment by police drove many newcomers from Mexico and Ecuador to leave the blue-collar city. AP

Federal officials say the officers denied Latino residents and their advocates the right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures, the right to not be arrested and detained without probable cause and the right to not be arrested on false and misleading evidence. CNN

US police released ‘contradictory’ stories on fatal CA shooting
Tue Feb 14, 2012 7:26PM GMT

Gordon Duff, senior editor of the Veterans Today says the stories released by the Police officers who shot and killed an unarmed Marine in Orange County, California are “contradictory.”



Marine Sergeant Manuel Loggins Jr. was gunned down by one or more of 4 officers while returning to his vehicle. The reason deputies give is that they felt threatened when a single unarmed man approached a car.

“We have seen police, across the United States, shooting veterans and servicemen,” Duff told Press TV’s U.S. Desk on Tuesday. “This is technically a second degree murder.”

“Sergeant Loggins was unarmed. There was no weapon in the car. There was no reason to stop him of any kind.”

“We have seen no attempt by federal authorities to use existing laws that are meant to protect members of the military from police. We extremely concerned about it,” Duff said.

Unfortunately, it looks like the Department of Homeland Security is doing their utmost to create some type of boogie man, portraying 'disgruntled (their term)' veterans as a national security and local risk to law enforcement. I'm far less concerned about veterans going on a shooting spree than I am for some rogue police officer overreacting at a perceived 'slight'. I was a corrections officer in Connecticut, and we were trained in something called the 'Continuum of Force". It's a recommended pattern of confrontation escalation NOT de-escalation. You go from issuing loud verbal commands, to physical force, and then deadly force for situations where common sense would have prevented an unnecessary killing. An example that comes to mind in San Jose, California was one where the police shot and killed a 5' Vietnamese woman because she had a potato peeler in her hand in her kitchen and didn't understand their commands to put it down (Continuum of Force).
