‘Testilying’ by Police: A Stubborn Problem

https://nytimes.com/2018/03/18/nyregion/testilying-police-perjury-new-york.html

Quote
An investigation by The New York Times has found that on more than 25 occasions since January 2015, judges or prosecutors determined that a key aspect of a New York City police officer’s testimony was probably untrue. The Times identified these cases — many of which are sealed — through interviews with lawyers, police officers and current and former judges.

In these cases, officers have lied about the whereabouts of guns, putting them in suspects’ hands or waistbands when they were actually hidden out of sight. They have barged into apartments and conducted searches, only to testify otherwise later. Under oath, they have given firsthand accounts of crimes or arrests that they did not in fact witness. They have falsely claimed to have watched drug deals happen, only to later recant or be shown to have lied.

No detail, seemingly, is too minor to embellish. “Clenched fists” is how one Brooklyn officer described the hands of a man he claimed had angrily approached him and started screaming and yelling — an encounter that prosecutors later determined never occurred. Another officer, during a Bronx trial, accused a driver of recklessly crossing the double-yellow line — on a stretch of road that had no double-yellow line.

In many instances, the motive for lying was readily apparent: to skirt constitutional restrictions against unreasonable searches and stops. In other cases, the falsehoods appear aimed at convicting people — who may or may not have committed a crime — with trumped-up evidence.

City Gave Eight Cops License to Terrorize Residents, Now Officials Say They're Not Responsible



Baltimore City will fight tooth and nail to not pay one cent to the victims of the gun task which were robbed, falsely accused and imprisoned.  For all those in the US that do not see the significance  of this articles, please understand that main job of these officers was to get "illegal" gun off the streets in a state with restrictive gun laws.  As we see local, state and the federal government pushing gun confiscation laws, do not be surprised if this type of task forces are formed in your state.   Especially after the latest mass shooting in Illinois, where the shooters supposedly passed the first background check to acquire the gun but failed the check when he applied for concealed and carry.  Pretty soon they will be sending SWAT Teams to perform these tasks.

Houston has been dealing with a major case of secret police, drug war shenanigans, a no-knock warrant, and plainclothes policy enforcers. Here's the original report. This has turned into lies, dead people with less than an ounce of weed, and injured public terrorists. The police union president got on TV that very night and started lashing out on the public for, "putting targets on their officer's backs." Wait, these people were keeping to themselves in their own home, even if they were shooting up and dealing with the black tar heroin that was never found by the way.

I knew something was wrong right off the bat.

'Courage under fire' HPD chief recalls officers' struggle with suspects during shootout in SE Houston

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Quote
HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) --
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said a senior officer shot while serving a narcotics warrant at a home later passed a note to him at the hospital saying he had to jump in there when other officers were down.

The 54-year-old officer and 32-year veteran of the force was one of four officers shot during the incident Monday at the house at 7800 Harding in southeast Houston.

A fifth officer suffered a knee injury, which required surgery.

Acevedo released more information at a press conference Tuesday morning about how the shooting unfolded.

Shortly before 5 p.m., narcotics officers arrived at the house after receiving a tip from a neighbor [1.] that the suspects were dealing drugs, including black tar heroin.

When the officers entered the home, they immediately came under fire, Acevedo said.

All of the officers involved are undercover narcotics officers. Their names will not be released. [2.]

Acevedo said the first officer who went through the door had a shotgun and was immediately charged by a large pit bull.

The officer shot the dog and killed it. [3.]

At the same time, the first suspect, identified as 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle, came from around the back and opened fire with a .357 Magnum revolver, hitting the first officer in the shoulder.

That's when the second suspect, Tuttle's wife 58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas, reached over the officer and started making a move for his shotgun.

Back-up officers fired at Nicholas, hitting her. [4.]

Both Nicholas and Tuttle were killed in a shootout with police.
[continues...]

All familiar sounding stuff huh?

1. This is a lie. We have since found out, an undercover narcotics nazi put words in an existing informants mouth to get a no-knock warrant. These people lived there for decades.

2. Names have since been released, as they are no longer employed by the city.

3. This sounds familiar don't it? They bust in the house, plain clothes, and shoot the dog that comes at them. Talk about wanna be military freaks.

4. I'm willing to bet they hit more than just her. Friendly fire comes up in these a lot. Doesn't it now?

Gerald Goines - Nazi thug

Personnel files reveal more about HPD officer at center of botched raid

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) --
The Houston police officer at the center of the deadly drug raid last month was praised for his use of confidential informants and productivity, according to city personnel records obtained by Eyewitness News.

Gerald Goines, 54, remains hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his face. Three other officers were also shot, and homeowners Dennis Tuttle and Rhoghena Nicholas were killed after police officers broke down their door on Harding Street with a "no-knock" warrant. HPD has said the couple fired at the officers. Goines has now been accused of lying on an affidavit to get the search warrant.

In a review by Eyewitness News of his City of Houston personnel records, Goines was often praised and his performance was rated highly.

Since becoming a narcotics officer in 1993, Goines had 50 reviews. For four years straight between 2007 and 2011, his supervisor wrote he "utilizes confidential informants to a positive end."

In the botched drug raid, investigators believe there was never a confidential informant who bought drugs at the Harding house, as Goines swore in a search warrant.

In Goines' 288-page file, there are more than 30 commendations for professionalism and good work over his 34 years with HPD. There are also six sustained complaints. Five led to written reprimands, including one for which he did not tag crack cocaine as evidence until a month later and only when he was asked about it [1.]. For the sixth, he got a one-day suspension for attacking a man his sister said sexually assaulted her [2.]. The police chief at the time wrote Goines "didn't use sound judgement."

What's missing in the pages is any mention of past shootings or prior problematic drug raids, some of which have been subjects of lawsuits. According to lawyers familiar with civil service complaints, the absence means the complaints were not sustained and HPD cleared Goines of wrongdoing. [3.]

Goines' last review in August called him a "mentor to new narcotics investigators" while also saying he needed to "increase his productivity levels." His attorney hopes he gets a fair shake. [4.]

"He's heartbroken by the way this situation has played out publicly [5.]. What he has hoped and what we have hoped for is a neutral and independent, thorough investigation into the circumstances of this warrant and these shootings," said Nicole Deborde, Goines' defense attorney.

Goines was relieved of duty over the weekend.

1. Tampering with evidence

2. Aggravated assault - six months in jail easy for your average citizen slave

3. Conspiracy

4. Fair? Not even considering the shooting, he should've spent a good 2 years in prison already.

5. Oh boo f**kin hoo. Not heartbroken over two dead innocent people then? Bring down the hammer. 10 years at the least.  ::)

Art Acevedo (of AustinPD fame) says no more no-knock warrants under his supervision. It's alright, just wait til he moves on to your city.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) --
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo says 'no-knock' warrants will end on his watch after the controversial raid that left a man and his wife dead on the southeast side.

The announcement came during a town hall meeting Monday night hosted by the Greater Houston Coalition of Justice.

Acevedo added that any exceptions to that rule will be circumstantial, and he'll know about it.

He also promised a new policy, stating that undercover officers will wear body cameras during a raid.

Appearing alongside Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg, Acevedo said he is angry about what happened, but vowed that changes are coming. [continues...]

How many people have been convicted and had their lives ruined by his drug "investigations"?  How much property has been seized by HPD due to his "investigations" Most of these "investigations" depend on the testimony or the assistance of drug users and/or criminals that are labeled "informants" who receive leniency for their part in keeping this charade going.

I am glad that the neighbors immediately stood up for Dennis Tuttle and Rhoghena Nicholas to counter the false narrative put out about the couple.

All of the department's cases are being "internally reviewed." I know there are lawyers all over this guy too. Hopefully some form of justice can come through, nothing will ever totally fix the things this guy and the drug war in general has done though. These things affect the rest of your life. The police? A day off. Time out, watching TV and drinking beer at home.

Civil Asset forfeiture laws set the precedent for Gun confiscation laws (red flag laws).

Cash grab: As asset forfeiture quietly expands across Pa., abuses follow

https://whyy.org/articles/cash-grab-as-asset-forfeiture-quietly-expands-across-pa-abuses-follow/

Quote
Records show Philadelphia collected less money from police confiscation in 2017 than any recent year on record. But, meanwhile, its suburbs and outlying counties, like Berks, have ramped up cash seizures according to an analysis of five years of data from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office.

In 2013, Philadelphia accounted for 40% of all cash seized by local law enforcement in the state. That share has since shrunk to just 10%. In the most recent year on record, half of the $11.1 million seized in Pa. came from eight suburban and exurban counties in the Southeast.

Collectively, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, Lancaster, York, Berks, Lebanon and Lehigh counties have nearly doubled their share of forfeited cash since 2012. Statewide, DAs have raked in more than $64 million in cash using the procedure in that time.

DA threatens to subpoena police for names of informants behind deadly Harding Street drug raid

https://houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/article/DA-threatens-to-subpoena-police-for-names-of-14025877.php

Harris County prosecutors are threatening to issue grand jury subpoenas to the Houston Police Department for details about confidential informants used by narcotics officers at the center of the botched Harding Street drug raid in January that ended with two residents dead and five officers injured.

After police failed to fulfill a previous request for the information in May, Harris County Assistant District Attorney Natasha Sinclair sent a one-page letter Thursday demanding HPD turn over a trove of information relating to the bust, including the identities of informants used by Squad 15 since 2014, the names of those who signed off on informant payments and details about alleged buys.

"It has been more than six weeks since we requested this material in preparation for possible presentation to a grand jury," wrote Sinclair, who heads the district attorney's civil rights division. "We have yet to receive confidential informant information on the specific incident reports requested."

The demand letter comes amid escalating tensions between police and Harris County prosecutors and suggests that the police department has dragged its feet in providing records despite promises from Chief Art Acevedo for an open and transparent investigation.

Federal grand jury hears testimony from Houston police officers about botched Pecan Park raid

https://houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Federal-grand-jury-hears-testimony-from-Houston-14123217.php

Two Houston police officers testified Wednesday before a federal grand jury regarding the botched drug raid that left two homeowners dead — the first sign that federal prosecutors are pursuing criminal charges in the controversial case.

Houston Police Officers’ Union Vice President Doug Griffith confirmed that the two officers appeared before the grand jury, though their testimony is secret by law. Grand jury investigations can last weeks or months.

Ex-Houston officers face federal charges in deadly drug raid

By JUAN A. LOZANO
November 20, 2019

https://apnews.com/dc9eca91a9144390bb9815064f9e2d10

Quote
HOUSTON (AP) — Two former Houston police officers are facing federal charges accusing them of providing false information in a January drug raid that left two people dead and several officers injured, authorities said Wednesday.

The federal counts follow state charges filed in the case in August, including two counts of felony murder against one of the officers. Rhogena Nicholas, 58, and Dennis Tuttle, 59, were killed in the raid.

Federal authorities said the charges against Gerald Goines, 55, and Steven Bryant, 45, are the result of a civil rights investigation begun by the FBI following the botched Jan. 28 raid. Police alleged Goines lied to obtain a search warrant.

Goines, who was shot in the botched drug raid, and Bryant face charges in a nine-count indictment. They made their initial federal court appearances Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors asked that Goines be held without bond. He will remain in custody until a detention hearing on Friday.

More Revelations at Former Officer Goines Federal Bond Hearing from No-Knock Raid

https://ammoland.com/2019/11/more-revelations-at-former-officer-goines-federal-bond-hearing-from-no-knock-raid/

In the hearing for Goines, FBI special agent O'Neil Brown testified about more evidence found in Goines' official, but unmarked Houston Police Department car. From click2houston.com:

    Brown’s testimony brought forward new revelations about the investigation into Goines’ alleged activities. He testified that Goines was involved in a sexual relationship with one of his confidential informants. This same confidential informant told investigators the drugs Goines said were purchased from 7815 Harding Street came from a different address — one unrelated to Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas, Brown testified. Brown also said investigators discovered a stolen gun in Goines’ unmarked HPD unit and various illegal drugs, including cocaine, and ecstasy.

It appears former officer Goines had more illegal drugs and illegal guns in his car than their victims, the Tuttles had. They had only a small amount of marijuana, and a small amount of cocaine discovered in their modest home, where they had lived quiet lives for the last 20 years since they had married.
