Casey Anthony Talks Caylee, Says 'I Sleep Pretty Good At Night'

Casey Anthony has been labeled “the most hated mom in America” in the aftermath of the 2008 disappearance and death of her daughter, 2-year-old Caylee. Caylee vanished, seemingly without a trace, in June of that year. Unthinkably, her disappearance was not reported to law enforcement for a month, and even then, not by her mother but her grandmother instead. From the beginning, Casey Anthony couldn’t get her story straight when it came to what happened to Caylee. She initially told investigators that her toddler had been kidnapped by “Zanny the Nanny,” but would go on to change her tune. When her mother, Cindy Anthony, reported her granddaughter’s disappearance to police (the same day she learned of it, a month after Casey said she’d last seen the 2-year-old), she claimed that the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car “smelled like a dead body.” the most hated woman in America Casey Anthony was spotted at an anti-Trump “rally” reecently said she doesnt like him. pic.twitter.com/WIRfomI7T8 — We The People News (@wethepplsdnews) February 21, 2017 Police would go on to arrest Casey in connection with Caylee’s disappearance the day after the child was reported missing. Ultimately, Casey Anthony was charged with Caylee’s murder – even before the little girl’s body was tragically found in a wooded area near the Anthony family home in December of 2008. When Caylee’s remains were discovered, they were badly decomposed and skeletal, making the determination of a cause of death impossible. Despite lacking a definitive cause of death, prosecutors did have some clues to go on. A search history on the Anthony family computer revealed that someone in the household had been conducting searches related to chloroform. Traces of the banned anesthetic were also reportedly found in the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car. A piece of duct tape attached to Caylee Anthony’s skeleton, believed to have been taped over the toddler’s mouth, featured a hand-drawn heart. As USA Today reports, the prosecution in the Casey Anthony murder trial argued that Caylee had been murdered by her mother when Casey administered chloroform to the tot, then taped her mouth shut, ultimately causing the toddler to suffocate. The motive, according to the prosecution, was a mom who wanted to party rather than raise a child. In fact, in the aftermath of Caylee’s disappearance, Casey was seen out partying at local Florida bars. As Daily Mail reports, Casey Anthony even took part in a “hot body” contest after she claimed her daughter vanished.

They argued that little Caylee had accidentally drowned in the Anthony family pool and that Casey and her father George covered up the little girl’s death in a panic. In 2011, Casey Anthony would go on to be acquitted of murdering Caylee. She was convicted of four counts of lying to police, two of which were later dismissed on appeal. Anthony had spent nearly three years incarcerated awaiting trial, and upon her acquittal, she was given credit for time served and released. Trial judge offers new theory on death of Casey Anthony’s daughter, Caylee Anthony https://t.co/M1ilAXnoqF pic.twitter.com/senJBRYWgq — CBS News (@CBSNews) March 2, 2017 While she suddenly found herself a free woman, legally “not guilty” in connection to her daughter’s death, Casey Anthony also found herself the target of intense public scrutiny. Most believed that she had “gotten away with murder,” and Anthony has lived as a virtual hermit in the nearly six years since her acquittal. As USA Today reports, Anthony filed for bankruptcy after her trial, she also started up her own photography business. Reportedly, customers were few and far between. Since her trial, Casey has not spoken publicly about the death of her daughter Caylee. Until now. And what she said in an exclusive Associated Press interview has many scratching their heads. Even her AP interviewer said that the interview, initiated by Anthony, was “revealing, bizarre and often contradictory, and … ultimately raised more questions than answers about the case.” It was also conducted in a room full of photos of Caylee, as well as the toddler’s artistic endeavors. Casey is said to have “teared up” when sharing a finger painting created by her deceased daughter.

What’s your secret girl? — Amber Maggart (@ambermaggart) March 7, 2017 During her unprecedented sit-down, Casey Anthony once again contradicted herself with regard to the fate of little Caylee. Despite swearing under oath at her trial that her 2-year-old had drowned in her family pool, Casey is now saying that she doesn’t know what happened to Caylee. “Everyone has their theories; I don’t know. As I stand here today I can’t tell you one way or another. The last time I saw my daughter I believed she was alive and was going to be OK, and that’s what was told to me.” Anthony went on to say that the last time she saw Caylee, the mother and daughter were in bed and her mom was telling them goodbye before she went to work. She claims that when she woke up again later, Caylee was gone.

According to Casey, she doesn’t care what you and I think of her. “I don’t give a sh** about what anyone thinks about me, I never will. I’m OK with myself; I sleep pretty good at night.” According to Casey, despite not knowing her daughter’s fate and not knowing how her short life ended so tragically, she is able to “sleep pretty good.” Casey Anthony on life after acquittal: ‘I sleep pretty good at night’ https://t.co/KlnW5wx4gH pic.twitter.com/yq12nBAEWM — Fox News (@FoxNews) March 7, 2017 As People reports, the reason behind Casey Anthony’s recent decision to open up about the death of Caylee is unclear. However, it comes just days after the judge in her murder trial confessed that he believes that Casey did kill her daughter — by accident. Despite her inconsistencies, Casey Anthony swore during her interview that she didn’t do “what she was accused of.” “I didn’t do what I was accused of, but I fought for three years. Not just for me, but for my daughter.” Currently, Casey Anthony is living in the home of a male private investigator who worked on her criminal case (she claims she is helping him with his work); as for Caylee, if she had survived, she would now be 12-years-old and according to her mom, a “bada**.” [Featured Image by Joshua Replogle/AP Images]

Houston Satanic Murder Victim Identified By Friends And Family

Illegal Salvadorian immigrants who are alleged to be part of the violent MS-13 gang have been accused of committing a series of horrific crimes including kidnapping, rape, and murder. The pair of illegal immigrants were accused of kidnapping and raping a 14-year-old girl and murdering a 15-year-old girl who has now been identified by her friends and family members as Genesis Cornejo from Jersey Village. Alleged gang members accused in woman’s ‘satanic’ murder in Houston https://t.co/lGdDlFdrOF via @abc13houston Build that wall pic.twitter.com/qGGx4xLkNq — Great Again News (@kencampbell66) March 3, 2017 Per KHOU, 15-year-old Genesis Cornejo disappeared from her home on January 19. Police were under the impression she ran away to New York with a man who had not been identified at the time. Instead, Genesis got mixed up with the pair of illegal Salvadorian immigrants who are alleged to have murdered her as part of a satanic ritual. Rosmeri Cornejo – the 15-year-old’s mother – recently took to Facebook to express her devastation regarding the death of her daughter. Rosmeri blamed “some d***ed gang” for taking her daughter’s life. Family, friends ID girl killed in ‘satanic’ murder https://t.co/ZXT28QyF0N pic.twitter.com/7j80LbbQwM — KHOU 11 News Houston (@KHOU) March 4, 2017 Melissa Tagarelli – a woman who worked with Rosmeri when they lived in New York – claimed she had known Genesis since she was a young girl. Melissa recalled the last time she saw Genesis. “When I saw her last time, she was really affectionate with her little brother. She was reading to him in the waiting room and just seemed like a normal, young teen.” Per KHOU, the Houston police have yet to confirm the girl that was found shot to death on February 16 was Genesis Cornejo despite the fact that family members and friends are claiming it is her. Diego Alexander Hernandez-Rivera and Miguel Angel Alvarez-Flores – who are 18 and 22-years-old – have been charged with both kidnapping and murder. Each of the males are being held on a $300,000 bond. The 14-year-old girl was able to provide police with enough evidence to link the two males to the murder of the 15-year-old whose body was dumped on the side of a road in Houston a few weeks ago. The girl, believed to be Genesis, was discovered by a man while he was driving his children to school. According to the 14-year-old, she was passed around from one man to the next in an apartment after she had run away towards the end of January. Eventually, she was released to a group of gang members on February 2. She was then held captive for over two weeks.

The gang members forced her to consume drugs and alcohol before she was raped by a man named Daniel. Unfortunately, this horrific story did not end there. The 14-year-old was held down by the gang members while Diabolico tattooed a grim reaper on the girl from her foot to her knee. According to the 14-year-old, the older girl believed to be Genesis was also being held against her will by the gang members. The 14-year-old revealed that Genesis upset the Diabolico when she bashed their shrine to the satanic saint. Diabolico made a peace offering to the saint, but claimed a soul would be needed in order to make their satanic saint happy.

Two weeks ago, the leader and one of the other members drove Genesis to Sharpcrest in southwest Houston where she was then shot – once by each of the males – in her head and chest. The murder was believed to be a satanic offering to the gang’s saint. While Diego Rivera had admitted to pulling the trigger, the identity of the 15-year-old has yet to be confirmed. How authorities found the 14-year-old girl is unknown. There is an immigration hold on both males which will prevent them from getting out of jail – even though they have a bond. Per KHOU, police have confirmed there was a third underage girl involved in this horrific crime. Additional details regarding this girl’s exact involvement (or anything about her for that matter) has not been revealed.

Juan M. Thompson Photos: St. Louis Bomb Threat Arrestee's Twitter Cyberstalking

Now that the name Juan Thompson — or “Juan M. Thompson” — has emerged as the man arrested in recent bomb threats against Jewish community centers, folks are searching for photos of Juan. It turns out that Thompson’s photos are easily found, because the man who was arrested in connection with bomb threats to allegedly eight Jewish community centers and schools across the U.S. was a former journalist. As reported by the New York Times, Thompson hails from St. Louis — and although throughout photos and writings on Juan’s Twitter page, the 31-year-old Thompson blames a woman for setting him up — the publication claims that Thompson was the one who set up the woman who dumped him. Photos of Juan and his tweets can be seen below. FBI arrests Juan Thompson for Jewish bomb threats.

The woman that Juan named via his Twitter account has deleted her Instagram account. More than 100 JCC centers have been threatened in the recent past. Meanwhile, many photos of Juan are making their way onto the Twitter photos tab under the name Juan Thompson in the wake of Thompson’s arrest. This is Juan Thompson.

It is being called Juan’s campaign of online harassment against his former lover. Prosecutors claim that Thompson not only harassed and threatened the centers with bomb threats, but that Juan also engaged in cyberstalking.

Juan is also being charged with making false reports — and with sending faxes and emails to his ex-lover’s employer. Juan even claimed that his ex-girlfriend had child pornography. Thompson later told authorities his Twitter and Internet had been hacked. The threats being attributed to Juan to Jewish centers referenced the Newtown massacre. “Juan Thompson put two bombs in the office of the Jewish center today. He wants to create Jewish Newtown tomorrow.” Juan’s Twitter page is still filled with rants — as of this writing — with claims that a woman tried to frame Thompson and even threatened President Donald Trump. According to Heavy, the arrest of Thompson happened after the FBI decided to bring charges against Juan for what the government called a pattern of harassment waged by Thompson. The FBI wrote that Juan was charged with stalking his former romantic interest by making bomb threats in her name to both to Jewish Community Centers and to the Anti-Defamation League. The FBI tracked down Juan’s activities via his IP address.

The employee, Juan Thompson, was a staff reporter from November 2014 until last month. Thompson fabricated several quotes in his stories and created fake email accounts that he used to impersonate people, one of which was a Gmail account in my name.” [Featured Image by Seth Wenig/AP Images]

Mary Fletcher, Mom Of 1, Had Sex With 3 High School Football Players, Cops Say

A 42-year-old mom of a young daughter, Debbie Fletcher, finds herself behind bars this week after she was busted Tuesday on multiple sex crime charges involving teenage boys, according to a report by the Record Searchlight newspaper in northern California. Fletcher, whose real name is Mary Frances Fletcher, stands accused by investigators of “unlawful sexual intercourse” with the boys, three of them in all according to the charges. The crime of unlawful sexual intercourse is also sometimes referred to as “statutory rape,” because it involves sexual relations between adults and minors who are below the age of consent. The three boys, whose names and ages have not been released publicly by authorities in Siskiyou County, California, were reportedly players on the local Mount Shasta High School football team in Mount Shasta, a small town of just over 3,000 inhabitants located California’s northernmost county. Siskiyou County shares a border with the state of Oregon directly to the north. Mount Shasta High School in Mount Shasta, California, where the alleged victims of Mary Fletcher played on the football team. [Image By Jim Heaphy/Wikimedia Commons] The police investigation into Fletcher’s alleged sex offenses began in September of 2016, when Mount Shasta law enforcement officers received an anonymous telephone tip regarding a local woman who was repeatedly engaging in sexual relations with underage boys, according to a report by KTVL TV. The Siskiyou County District Attorney’s office took more than two months to initiate a grand jury investigation into the allegations, finally doing so on December 8. Fletcher, however, was not arrested and charged until Tuesday of this week, February 28. District Attorney Kirk Andrus told KTVL that the arrest could have happened at any time during the investigation, but he wanted to wait until enough evidence for a case had accumulated, and that Fletcher posed no “immediate danger” to the Siskiyou County community.

The following video news report from KOBI TV News in Medford, Oregon, contains further details about the disturbing Fletcher high school football sex case. Fletcher was employed as a dental assistant, but she was working in an unspecified capacity with a local photographer assigned to take pictures of the Mount Shasta High School football team when she first met the boys who, according to the charges, soon became the victims of her sexual offenses. “It was kind of a chance encounter and she evidently developed a relationship with the boys at a later time,” County Sheriff Jon Lopey said. “These cases are always challenging,” Andrus added. “I mean especially for a young person that is by definition not prepared for this kind of relationship. Relationship is probably the wrong word but they’re not prepared for this kind of interaction with an adult.” MORE SEX CRIME COVERAGE FROM THE INQUISITR:

Casey Anthony Judge Thinks Hated Tot Mom May Have Killed Caylee 'By Accident'

The judge who presided over the Casey Anthony murder trial has finally broken his silence about case’s controversial verdict. Circuit Judge Belvin Perry Jr. is now retired, and he has come forward with his own theory about what happened to little Caylee Anthony, who vanished in June of 2008. The 2-year-old’s remains were found months later, as her mom Casey Anthony sat in prison awaiting trial for the tot’s murder. What was left of little Caylee was skeletal, and a cause of death was never determined. The judge who presided over the Casey Anthony trial believes she killed her daughter Caylee accidentally https://t.co/P2SiI4qEtn pic.twitter.com/UYYa1F0rId — New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews) March 1, 2017 As Western Journalism reports, throughout preparation for the trial, Casey Anthony and her defense team maintained her innocence, despite the fact that she waited a month to report Caylee missing. Even after police became involved with the then-disappearance of Casey Anthony’s daughter, the woman who would go on to be dubbed “the most hated mom in America” repeatedly changed her story with regard to what had happened to her child. Over the course of the investigation into Caylee’s disappearance, which was reported to Florida authorities by Casey’s mother Cindy when she became aware that her granddaughter hadn’t been seen for weeks, detectives discovered something disturbing on the Anthony family’s home computer: repeated searches for the term “chloroform.” Traces of the substance were ultimately found in the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car, a trunk that Casey’s own mother told police smelled “like a dead body.” During the Casey Anthony murder trial, which ran from May to July 2011, prosecutors argued that Casey Anthony had killed Caylee with chloroform combined with duct tape over the little girl’s mouth, which would have resulted in suffocation. As CNN reports, when police initially became involved with Casey Anthony, she told them that her daughter had disappeared with a childcare providers named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, later dubbed “Zanny the Nanny.” When Casey’s defense team presented their case at her murder trial, however, the shocking tale presented to jurors had nothing to do with a kidnapped toddler. Rather, they told the court that Caylee Anthony had accidentally drowned in her grandparents’ pool. They claimed that a terrified 22-year-old Casey panicked and disposed of her daughter’s body, concocting an abduction story to cover up the girl’s death. Casey Anthony judge believes she killed toddler accidentally https://t.co/4rwJ9GXBVF pic.twitter.com/pObe4k7cky — New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews) March 1, 2017 On July 5, 2011, the jury in the Casey Anthony murder trial returned their verdict. Much to the collective shock and anger of an American public who had been watching the case almost religiously, Anthony was found not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter of a child and aggravated child abuse. She was convicted of four counts of providing false information to law enforcement, all misdemeanors, and sentenced to time served. Within days, Casey Anthony was a free woman, but many believed and still believe that she got away with murder. As Fox News reports, Judge Belvin Perry Jr. seems to agree that Casey was responsible for Caylee’s death. During a recent interview, the judge said that he thinks that Casey Anthony likely killed her toddler daughter by accident. In an interview published in The Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday, Judge Perry said that he believes that Casey Anthony did use chloroform on her 2-year-old. @orlandosentinel which in turn means she covered it up on purpose…this judge should be ashamed he allowed such a mockery of justice — sammyC (@kobrakai4life) March 1, 2017 @law_newz @AngelWingsSC55 soft judges kill lawful Americans because they are never victims of crime or even seen a real crime — Madgod (@dj1darrell) March 1, 2017 @Independent Given her family’s history, her Dad sounded like a crooked cop: it always seemed like retaliation @machiavelli14 than murder. — Tea Party Chief (@GA_TeaParty) March 1, 2017 @NYDailyNews This mama’s gut reaction is NO. Most definitely not an accident. Lies. Fictional babysitter. 30days keeping it from parents… — bitchkitty (@UPGirlcd) March 1, 2017 However, the judge contended that he thinks that Casey Anthony was only using the chloroform to “quiet Caylee down,” and accidentally ended up using enough to kill the small child. “I think upon the evidence, the most logical thing that happened was that she tried to knock her daughter out by use of chloroform. There was a possibility that she may have utilized that to keep the baby quiet… and just used too much of it, and the baby died.” Despite believing that Casey may have inadvertently killed Caylee in an attempt to keep her quiet (and citing the infamous evidence of chloroform searches uncovered by investigators), Judge Perry still doesn’t fault the jury of seven women and five men who acquitted her of her daughter’s murder. Members of the Casey Anthony jury have come under fire in the years since her trial, often being publicly accused of helping her to “get away with murder.” However, members of the jury have long argued that the prosecution simply didn’t prove their case, and that the defense’s surprise testimony involving an accidental drowning was enough incite reasonable doubt. “The prosecution did not prove their case. The big question that was not answered: How did Caylee die?” Judge Says Casey Anthony Probably Killed Daughter … By Accident https://t.co/5Dkcw3zRxH pic.twitter.com/VpFCfTszbQ — LawNewz (@law_newz) March 1, 2017 While Judge Perry attempted to answer that question in his recent interview, he admitted that an accidental chloroform overdose was only one of many guesses and theories as to how Caylee Anthony’s life was so tragically cut short. “As I’ve expressed, the only person that really knows what happened was Casey.” However, if the jury had reached the same conclusion as the judge in the case, they could have convicted Casey Anthony of second-degree murder or manslaughter, and she would likely have been sentenced to some serious prison time. Many have argued that the behavior of Casey Anthony after her daughter went missing (but before the disappearance was reported) was damning in and of itself. Casey seemingly showed no outward signs of grief or remorse in the days after she claims that her daughter drowned. The young mom continued with her previous lifestyle of partying and the like even after she says she knew that her toddler had already passed away. Just four days after Caylee allegedly drowned, Casey Anthony was at a Florida bar competing in a “hot body contest.” [Featured Image by Joe Burbank/Pool/AP Images]

Kyle Parker Confronted By Raped And Murdered Toddler's Mom At Sentencing

Kyle Parker, 23, accused of kidnapping, raping and killing 14-month-old Shaylyn Ammerman, will spend 60 years in jail. Many had hoped for the death penalty or life in prison, but the judge accepted the prosecution’s plea deal and dropped many of the charges against him, People reported. Kyle appeared in court on February 27, 2017, before Judge Lori Thatcher Quillen to receive his sentence. Prosecutor Don VanDerMoere told the judge that the case was not strong enough for a jury trial. Don urged the judge to accept Parker’s plea deal and drop most of the charges against him. Kyle would spend some time in jail and then be eligible for parole. Shaylyn’s mother, Jessica Stewart, took the stand so she could say a few things to the man who murdered her daughter. She did not speak forgiveness toward him, but her few choice words belayed her feelings for the man who raped and killed her daughter. “You took my loving, sweet and beautiful daughter away from me, her brother, her dad and everyone who loves her. I hope you live with your guilt and it torments you for the rest of your life.” Man Who Raped and Killed 1-Year-Old Girl Confronted by Her Mom in Court: I Hope Your Guilt ‘Torments Yo… https://t.co/JoH0aNKdrK via @people — Amelia2325 (@Amelia2325) March 1, 2017 According to RTV 6 ABC, when Don VanDerMoer asked for the plea deal, he was close to tears. “Blame me that we don’t have evidence. Blame me that we’ve got witnesses that are impeachable. But leave that family alone. Send him for 60 years to the department of corrections and let this be done. Your honor, I ask you to accept the plea deal in this case. It’s not what I want, but it’s the right thing that has to be done.” The witnesses Don referred to had major problems in the pornographic world. One witness had been charged with rape. Electronic devices were seized and investigated from the homes of other witnesses. Investigators found the hard drives full of online searches “for violent, pornographic images” against women and young girls. A long list of charges had been dropped against Kyle in exchange for the plea deal. These include rape, child molestation, strangulation, and the disposition of a body. Also dropped against Kyle were the charges of obstruction of justice, aggravated assault and the failure to report a dead body. Because the rape charges were dropped, Kyle would not have to register as a sex offender after he is released from prison, but he will have to register as a serious violent offender.Even though Kyle was sentenced to serve 60 years, he may be paroled in 45 years for good behavior. Kyle Parker receives 60 years in prison for kidnapping, murder of 1-year-old Shaylyn Ammerman https://t.co/1odjItwI1F — Amelia2325 (@Amelia2325) March 1, 2017 Kyle Parker confessed that he kidnapped Shaylyn on March 23, 2016, after he spent the night drinking with Shaylyn’s uncle, Adam Ammerman. Apparently, they had just become friends when Adam invited Kyle over for a night of drinking and movie watching. Adam does not own his own home. Instead, he shares the home with Shaylyn’s parents, Justin Ammerman and Jessica Stewart. Police records state that they drank alcohol that night and watched a movie. Adam fell asleep in his chair while Kyle continued to drink. Adam maintained that he didn’t wake up until he heard the front door close. He peered out the window in time to see Mr. Parker carrying something as he headed to his car. “Adam stated he saw Kyle Parker walking away from the house and he was carrying something. Adam advised he yelled at Kyle to say goodbye but Kyle would not turn around. Adam informed detectives that he thought he saw a foot dangling from Kyle’s side but was not certain so he went back to bed.” When the case first began, Kyle told investigators that Adam was the one who killed the girl and had asked him to help get rid of the body, which Parker agreed to do. Mr. Parker informed the police they would find the Shaylyn’s body in the remote area of Gosport, Indiana, next to the White River. It was just two days after Shaylyn’s disappearance, on March 24, 2016, that they found her unclothed body exactly where Mr. Parker said she would be. Adam Ammerman took a polygraph to prove his innocence. The test showed that he knew nothing about Shaylyn’s murder or her disappearance. The police told Parker about Adam’s polygraph test and that he was not involved in her abduction. That was all it took for Parker to change his story and give his confession. Kyle told investigators that he killed Shaylyn in the front seat of his car with a blanket and that he had burned her sleeper outfit and pacifier. He said that he used bleach to get rid of the evidence on Shaylyn’s body, but there was no evidence of bleach anywhere on her body upon examination. Before Kyle admitted his guilt to the police, he told his stepfather, Mike Patton, that he had killed the girl. Mike alerted police about his conversation and gave a probable cause affidavit. “Mike [Patton] stated when he spoke to Kyle on 3-24-16 during a smoke break from the interview, Kyle informed him that the police would have the truth once they found Shaylyn’s body and the DNA with it. Mike stated he knew right then that Kyle had taken Shaylyn and raped and killed her.” Dr. Donna Stewart performed the autopsy. She told police that it was “the worst case of sexual trauma she had seen in her career.” Although Kyle Parker received a very light sentence, the little girl’s family members may have some closure. If the trial had gone to a jury, they would’ve had to listen to the things that Kyle Parker did to their precious child in her final moments on the earth. Tamera Morgan, the grandmother to Shaylyn, shared her thoughts about the plea deal. “I am ecstatic over it. I do wish he would’ve gotten more but he’s being put away. He’s finally admitting his guilt which is awesome. Shaylyn is getting her justice. A great burden is lifted off me because we don’t have to go through that trial because I don’t think I could have gone through that at all. It’s over and finally that’s all we wanted for it to be over, and hopefully the community can heal because this is the worst thing that ever happened in Spencer.” What do you think about the plea deal and the court allowing numerous charges to be dropped as if they never happened? Should they allow plea deals to enter the courts when a life is taken? Post your thoughts below. [Image by Indiana State Police/Associated Press]

San Francisco: Brutal Scuffle Exposes Big Flaw With The City's Police, Many Say

A video taken last week that depicts a San Francisco police officer being tackled by a masturbating homeless man in causing many San Francisco city officials to wonder if the city’s unique stance on use of force by the authorities has gone too far. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that local college student Kirill Zubaryev was taking a walk in the city’s Ocean Beach district on February 19 when he happened upon a San Francisco police officer attempting to subdue a homeless man who had taken off his pants, begun touching himself, and refused to stop. Obviously, the officer had found the man guilty of indecent exposure and had attempted to apprehend him, but the homeless man had resisted. Of course, Zubaryev did not hesitate to whip out his phone to film the confrontation, which was just amping up. In the video, the homeless man can be seen pushing the member of San Francisco’s finest around, pushing him down on the sidewalk, and falling on top of him. The officer attempts to fight back, but, due to the uniquely restrictive set of laws San Francisco passed in December preventing police from using force when apprehending criminals, he did not have much success. In fact, the officer only tugs lamely at the homeless man’s jacket and does not impede his assault in any real way until several helpful San Francisco residents join in the scuffle to help. “At the end of the day, their timing prevented the whole situation from escalating,” said Richmond Station police Capt. Paul Yep in reference to the “heroic citizens.” SFPD officers certainly have a lot on their plates. [Image by Paul J. Elias/AP Images] The locals who lent a hand may have saved the day this time, but the SFPD officer’s inability to incapacitate the violent offender in any way, shape, or form made officials question whether San Francisco’s refusal to supply police with tasers and ban on officers using cartoid neck-holds (a very effective neck-hold used by many police) on criminals was a good idea. “This is just another example of how a flawed use-of-force policy… has gotten one of my members unnecessarily injured,” said Martin Halorran, president of the Police Officers Association. “This is a situation where the carotid restraint is extremely useful to the officer who may be outweighed or smaller in stature than the suspect.” The San Francisco police department’s use-of-force expert, Ed Obayashi, stressed to The Sacramento Bee that the rules against cartoid holds and tasers “make no sense.” He added that the San Francisco Bay Area is “a different world politically” and that its use-of-force restrictions are “overblown, over-exaggerated,” and downright dangerous for everyone involved. Protesters pack SF police commission meeting over Tasers https://t.co/DwHN3Dn5EP #sanfrancisco pic.twitter.com/qTHpherGj3 — San Francisco News (@SFnewsnow) December 10, 2015 To be fair, others, such as American Civil Liberties Union attorney Linda Lye, think that San Francisco’s limitations on officer force are perfectly reasonable. “The SFPD has a history of racially-biased policing and excessive use of force. Adding Tasers – which are lethal weapons – won’t solve those problems,” Lye notes. However, points out Zubaryev, the San Francisco resident who took the video, the officer did not appear to act unfairly towards the perpetrator, despite the fact that he was African American. “From what I saw, [he] was polite,” Zubaryev said, continuing that the officer had maintained a “very professional” demeanor and stayed a safe distance from the man until he had been grabbed. It is good to know that the scourge of police brutality news headlines we have seen over the past few years are actually prompting some major cities like San Francisco to take big preventative measures. Has San Francisco in particular gone too far, though?

What’s your opinion on the subject? Are San Francisco’s bans on both tasers and neck-holds too much to still allow officers to be effective? [Image by Dmitri Menikov/iStock]
