Mug Shots Gone Wild

 

Even the Tampa Bay Times, which prominently displays its Pulitzer Prize tally (12), and is behind such upstanding journalistic institutions as Poynter Institute, compiles them alongside a detailed list of physical attributes — gender, height, weight and so on. The images vanish after 60 days from a section that clocks nearly one million views a month, said the paper’s editor, Neil Brown. While he put the site’s news value at the “lowest possible level,” he said that such eyeball grabbing schemes aren’t unusual. “The slippery slope of being a purist is that there’s all kinds of stuff on news sites all over the county that is there for the interest of the audience,” he said. “I don’t think sanctimony over it is entirely well placed — though I don’t begrudge anyone their sanctimony.”

Body Cam Gone Wild

 

#CopsGoneWild The officer’s alleged trickery was revealed by the fact that his body cam retained footage for 30 seconds before it was activated to begin recording. During that time, according to the footage and the Baltimore public defender’s office, Officer Richard Pinheiro puts a bag of pills in a can in an alley and walks out of the alley.

The Axon cam’s initial 30 seconds of footage, by default, doesn’t have sound. After 30 seconds, viewers of the video can both see and hear the officer looking for drugs in the alley. Lo and behold, he finds them in the same soup can that he placed them in, according to the footage, which was released Wednesday. Pinheiro can then be heard yelling “yo” to his fellow officers, telling them he found drugs in the alley.

Cop Crashes While Using Laptop in Patrol SUV

Florida has outlawed texting while driving in Florida Statute 316.305. The law is literally known the “Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law.” It tries to “[p]revent crashes related to the act of text messaging while driving a motor vehicle.” The law prohibits “operat[ing] a motor vehicle while manually typing or entering multiple letters, numbers, symbols, or other characters into a wireless communications device . . . .” The cop drove through a loophole in the law and rear-ended multiple vehicles. Cops can use their computers, since the law allows them limited use. #CopsGoneWild

Bank Robbery False Alarm

Bank of America in Florida can by hit hard for customer injured during a false robbery alarm. A team of police officers armed with heavy weapons responded to a false alarm and cops responding hit one of their customers. In this case a guy was at a bank and there was a false alarm for a robbery. An alarm was triggered at a bank and “at some point the police realized that after [the customer] had been seriously injured, it was a totally false alarm . . . .” Bank of America had a video system, but “video showing [their customer] being kicked is conveniently missing. Bank of America denies that this footage was erased, and asserts that the surveillance program is written to purposely create gaps in footage to create an easily downloadable file.”

Cops Walk in House with No Warrant

Treasure Island, Florida has become a hotbed of the methamphetamine world. So while on patrol, a cop saw an open door with mail on the floor near the mail slot. The decision was made to enter the home and make sure everyone was alright. Of course, while there, why not search the house and find some meth. Court says a dios to this one.

From the Digital Trenches

Just reviewed a computer crime case where the dates on files on an SD card seized by the police, examined by the police computer forensic laboratory, and by a defense expert in computer forensics showed some unusual patterns in the dates of files that allegedly contained contraband. Those files on an SD card were later the basis of criminal charges and an arrest. There were claims of evidence spoliation. “Spoliation” is a fancy word for tampering. Sometimes a Computer Crimes Experts can come in handy. During a lengthy interrogation by the Prosecutor there were some answers given that may apply to virtually any cases involving data stored on a mobile phone SD card. #CopsGoneWild

Cameras Gone Wild

They never seem to have a problem turning camera off in my client’s case. #CopsGoneWild “The cameras can capture evidence and clear false complaints, but some officers had trouble remembering to turn them on or off, or later realized that the lens was accidentally pointed away from what the officer was seeing, which “would certainly result in accusations of cover up,” the report reads.” said the confused officer to the reporter.
