Police Union Claims Two Officers Wrongly Accused

first_imgHome of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena A union representing police officers and corporals hired by the City of Pasadena has released a statement that said two of its members have been wrongly accuse of hiding exculpatory evidence and should be cleared of any wrongdoing.In their statement released late Wednesday, the Pasadena Police Officers Association said Pasadena police officers Kevin Okamoto and William Broghamer should be cleared of any wrongdoing because prosecutors have admitted to misplacing evidence, the Pasadena Sun reported.“Although Detective Broghamer testified that the evidence in question had in fact been presented to Deputy District Attorney Paul Kim back in 2009, DA Paul Kim stipulated during the hearing that he had not received the missing discovery items from the Pasadena detectives,” according to the union’s statement.Okamoto and Broghamer reportedly hid three audio tapes in a murder case involving defendants Jerrell Sanford and Michael Grigsby. The two are accused of killing Shawn Baptiste in 2007, the Pasadena Star-News reported.A declaration from Deputy District Attorney Peter Cagney stated that the evidence was placed in a box that was improperly inventoried by another prosecutor during a hurried evacuation of flood-damaged office space, the Pasadena Sun reported.In moving to a downtown Los Angeles office a week later, Kim retrieved two boxes identified as evidence in the Grigsby and Sanford case but not a third box that contained the envelope “because it was not labeled in any fashion that indicated it contained his case materials,” Cagney wrote in his declaration.Pasadena police spokeswoman Lt. Tracey Ibarra told the Pasadena Sun that the investigation into cases handled by Okamoto, who is on paid administrative leave, and Broghamer, who was reassigned to a non-investigative unit, remains ongoing.

‘2 Years Passed; Remote Possibility Of Recovery Of Electronic Evidence’ : SC Says Closing Probe Into ‘Larger Conspiracy’ Against Ex-CJI Gogoi [Read Order]

The Court had also directed the CBI, Intelligence Bureau and the Delhi Police to give necessary assistance to Justice Patnaik in his probe.The bench had also taken note of the affidavit filed by Advocate Utsav Bains claiming that he was approached by certain “fixers” and “plotters” to file complaint against Gogoi.Almost two years down the line, the top court has closed the proceedings after taking note of Justice Patnaik’s enquiry report which opined that “it is not possible to find corroborative material qua the allegations of Mr. Utsav Singh Bains made in the affidavit”.The order passed by Justice Kaul-led bench further observed that the report of Justice Patnaik – which has not been made available in public domain – acknowledged that the “existence of a conspiracy cannot be completely ruled out”.The order also notes that Justice A.K. Patnaik has not been able to obtain various records including electronic records of Whatsapp, Telegram etc.  The report also referred to letter of the Director of the Intelligence Bureau which stated on account of the then Chief Justice of India taking serious tough decisions like in the case relating to National Register of Citizens (NRC), there was strong reason to believe that persons who were unhappy with those decisions hatched a conspiracy against the then Chief Justice of India.The report also referred to certain tough administrative decisions taken to streamline theprocess in the Registry.The bench observed that since two years have passed, it was unlikely to obtain electronic evidence. Also, the mandate of the enquiry panel was limited.  Hence, the bench observed that “no useful purpose will be served by continuing these proceedings”.”We are also of the view that two years having passed and the possibility of recovery of electronic records at this distance of time is remote, especially since the scope of the enquiry and the power of the learned Judge is limited, no useful purpose will be served by continuing these proceedings”.BACKGROUND In 2019, in response to some media reports on sexual harassment allegations against the then CJI Ranjan Gogoi made by a former Supreme Court employee, a three-Judge Bench of Supreme Court comprising of the CJI, Justices Arun Mishra and Sanjiv Khanna had held a special sitting. The former CJI had noted that there was a bigger plot behind the allegations and, that the people who had instituted the same wanted to “deactivate the office of CJI” and therefore, the independence of the judiciary was under very serious threat. In April 2019, a Bench of Justices Arun Misra, RF Nariman and Deepak Gupta ordered that the former Supreme Court Judge, Justice AK Patnaik, would hold an inquiry regarding the alleged conspiracy by fixers and disgruntled employees against the former CJI. During the course of the proceedings, the Supreme Court also considered an affidavit filed by Advocate Utsav Bains claiming that he was offered Rs. 1.5 crores by ‘fixers’ to frame sexual harassment allegations against the then CJI Gogoi. In August 2019, the Supreme Court-appointed one-man panel comprising of Justice Patnaik, holding the inquiry into allegations of “larger conspiracy” to frame Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, completed its task and is likely to submit the report by mid-September 2019. However, till date, there has been no public information available pertaining to the report. In January 2020, the ex-Supreme Court staff who had made the allegations of sexual harassment by former CJI Ranjan Gogoi had been reinstated to services.Also Read : CJI Sexual Harassment Case : A TimelineCase DetailsCase :In Re : Matter Of Great Public Importance Touching Upon The Independence Of Judiciary-Mentioned By Shri Tushar Mehta, Solicitor General of IndiaCase No :Suo Moto Writ Petition(c) 1/2019Coram : Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, AS Bopanna and V RamasubramanianCitation : LL 2021 SC 95Click here to read/download the orderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Man arrested after threatening to blow up Spokane County Democrats office: Police

first_imgvmargineanu/iStockBy WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(SPOKANE, Wash.) — Police arrested a man in Spokane, Washington, Wednesday morning after he allegedly entered the county Democrats’ headquarters and threatened to blow it up.Authorities said the man entered the Teamsters building, located at Indiana and Division street, wearing a backpack with wires sticking out, saying he had a bomb.As a volunteer called 911 and those in the building evacuated, the suspect allegedly entered an office with an employee working and said he was going to blow it up, officials said.Police said they then surrounded the building and apprehended the suspect without incident as he exited the headquarters. The suspect was not wearing his backpack at that time, according to the Spokane Police Department.As officers entered the building, they noticed smoke coming out of an office. After making sure the building was evacuated, police called in the bomb squad, which determined the backpack was not explosive.Police said the man did start a fire inside the building, but no one was injured in the incident.“We are so relieved that no one was harmed in this reprehensible act of violence. Our primary concern is for the safety of our volunteers and the broader community of Spokane,” Washington State Democrats said in a statement Wednesday. “We urge every elected official and community leader to join us in condemning this apparently politically motivated act of violence. No one should have to fear for their life simply because they participate in our political process.”Police have not publicly identified the suspect or what he will be charged with at this time.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

EPD CHIEF BILLY BOLIN AND LIEUTENANT PAUL KIRBY SELECTED AS CCO “OUTSTANDING COMMUNITY…

first_imgThe City-County Observer Annual Awards Luncheon Is a Sell Out The final winners of the 2018 CCO Annual “Outstanding Community Service Awards” winners for 2018 are EPD Police Chief Billy Bolin and EPD Lieutenant Paul Kirby. They are well-known creators of the present Kids Kingdom playground structure located at Sunset Park. was built in 2002 as a community project originated by Evansville Police Department officers Paul Kirby and Billy Bolin, before Bolin was appointed Chief of Police. Together the officers oversaw the design and construction of the structure and spearheaded fundraising efforts. The structure was built in only six days with the help of more than 1,300 volunteers. The project received over $130,000 in private and corporate sponsorships, plus in-kind donations including materials. Bolin said the total value of the project exceeded $300,000.Chief of Police Billy Bolin has served on the Evansville Police Department since 1998.  He has been assigned to various positions in the department during his career, including Patrol, Juvenile Detective Office, Crime Prevention Officer and Patrol Sergeant.  He started his Policing Career at the Henderson Kentucky Police Department in 1995.  Chief Bolin graduated from the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training in February 1996.  He is also a graduate of the Police Executive Leadership Academy.  Chief Bolin won the National 2005 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Award for Outstanding Public Service and was the 2009 Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police, Police Officer of the Year.Lieutenant Kirby has worked in patrol, been a crime prevention officer, crime scene technician, a sergeant in the detective office, lieutenant over patrol, detective office and is currently the lieutenant over the Special Operations Unit.Then Officers Bolin and Kirby worked together to organize the annual Culver School Christmas Party for several years, where all 400+ kids received a Christmas bucket with sock hats, small toys, fruit, and candy.  Officer Bolin then mentioned to Officer Kirby that Evansville needed a large scale playground on the riverfront and the two received approval from the Parks Board to raise the funds and after two years work, Kids Kingdom was built in Sunrise Park.The two then partnered with Officer Pat Phernetton to start GUNS & HOSES, which is currently gearing up for its eleventh year.  The annual boxing event between police officers and firefighters draws around 8,000 spectators and raises over $100,000 a year for local charities that benefit children and people with special needs.As a result of GUNS & HOSES, 911 Gives Hope was born and Billy and Paul were founding members.  Along with GUNS & HOSES, 911 Gives Hope also hosts the yearly 911 Gives Hope for the Holidays Toy Drive.  The group just held their 9th toy drive in December which provides toys to all the local hospitals which are given out to kids year round while in the hospitals.With the news of the original Kids Kingdom being torn down as part of the water utility project, Billy and Paul are both onboard the Kids Kingdom-2 committee. The new committee will oversee the building of a larger, better playground along our downtown riverfront this fall.For more than a decade it has been one of the most often used playgrounds in Evansville but the days of Kids Kingdom are numbered because of an upcoming Evansville Water and Sewer Utility project. Despite this, the founders of the park, Police Chief Billy Bolin, and Lieutenant Paul Kirby, are beyond hope that the Kids Kingdom-2 will be bigger and better.Bolin and Kirby’s names read first on the plaque commemorating the construction. The two men often downplay their involvement in the playground coming to fruition, crediting the work of the hundreds of volunteers, corporate sponsors, and private donors. The impending demolition of the park is bittersweet, Bolin said, but planning is almost complete for the next version of Kids Kingdom. “It’s more than hope,” Bolin said. “I’ve been included in a lot of the early meetings and they’re getting public input. I know for certain we’re going to have aN outstanding replacement.”The design for “KIDS KINGDOM -2 project is almost is complete. The new playground will be near the Evansville Museum.  “If [the playground] was just going away I would say that it’s not good for the community,” Kirby said. “Now, we can have something to look forward to. Maybe a bigger and better [playground] built by the community. It will still instill that pride again maybe for another 20 years.”This year’s winners are Ted and Clare Ziemer, Honorable Posey County Superior Cout Judge Jim Redwine, Local Attorney Pat Shoulders, Honorable Chief Superior Court Judge -Les Shively, and Lieutenant Paul Kirby and EPD Chief od police Billy Bolin.This year’s awards luncheon will be held at Tropicana-Evansville Walnut rooms A and B. The registration begins at 11:30 am, the event officially starts at 12 noon on March 19, 2018? …this event is sold out.  If you have any questions about this event please call the Event Coordinator, Karen Selzer at 812-430-9304 or 812-909-2361?
