Ack, submitted before finishing the post.

It changes the way this is awful; the apparent intent is to protect children, not to punish offenders.

Is it? The attitude seems pretty obvious.

Not to mention, "sex offender" can apply to a whole host of people who would never be a threat to children, and "predator" is so vague as to be stupidly meaningless.

It changed the apparent people at whom it was directed. Without that context, it sounds like they were directing it at all people with a warrant, no matter the relevant crime; with the context (including the two following tweets), it sounds like they may have meant to restrict it to sex offenders with a warrant, and that the jail will function as a secure shelter through Irma.

Agreed; however, from what I've seen, police tend to forget or ignore that.

Yeah, I'm giving the benefit of the doubt that they are merely stupid and slightly evil, as opposed to purely evil.

Sheriff Grady Judd has a hard on for child molestation prevention and child porn stings.  He sets up stings in the county every few months and drags in some pretty awful characters from across the USA.  However, this stuff is a bit over the top since he's basically on a crusade against the nation instead of limiting his focus to the specific county in Florida he has jurisdiction.  But this guy has a positive appeal and polls 70+% in the county year after year.  So let the entrapment and county funds be spent without much oversight, because if you question him or his office about this stuff YOU are defending child molesters.  It's that kind of fucked up.

Dissent in a probable cause case:
Quote
Here's what this case boils down to: Officers had a hunch that a drug transaction was going down. They saw nothing obviously suspicious, but got tired of waiting, watching and wiretapping. They then jumped the gun by executing a warrantless search. Until today, this was not enough to support probable cause, but going forward it will be. This is a green light for the police to search anyone's property based on what officers subjectively believe--or claim to believe--about someone's everyday conduct. That puts all of us at risk. Accordingly, I dissent, and I'm off to Costco to buy some food.

(food was used as a code word for meth, and was sold by the defendant at costco).

Yet no one was ever prosecuted, Congress was only recently notified, and the Justice Department tried for years to keep the records secret. The Times intervened in an ongoing fraud lawsuit over the activity and successfully argued that a judge should unseal them. The documents tell a bizarre story of how federal agents set up shop inside a southern Virginia tobacco business, and treated its bank account as their own.

Then, while Howard stood motionless, Brown punched him in the face. As Howard reeled from the blow, Brown grabbed him by the neck and held him against a large refrigerator. At Brown's direction Howard retrieved a small bag of marijuana from his back pocket and turned it over to Brown. Without provocation, Brown punched Howard in the ribs and pulled him down an aisle toward the back of the store where he forced him to lie on the floor on his back. When Howard attempted to sit up, Brown hit him in the face again and forced him back to the ground on his stomach. Brown then handcuffed Howard, searched his back pockets, and found a handgun. Brown confiscated the gun and walked toward the front of the store to show it to his partner, then returned to kick Howard in the ribs before placing him under arrest. Surveillance cameras captured the episode on silent video.
...
According to Farrell's expert report, his proposed testimony would take the jury through a frame-by-frame narration of the surveillance video and describe how the Chicago Police Department's "Use of Force Model" applied to Brown's confrontation with Howard. Specifically, Farrell planned to testify that Howard was an "active resister" and an "assailant," to use the parlance of the Use of Force Model.

Asshole cop tries to call asshole badgelicker "expert". Judge shuts him down. Asshole cop appeals. Appeals judges tell him he's an asshole.

Asshole cop only gets 2 years.

That's utterly shocking!!!

I can't believe cops would nor find other cops' behavior reprehensible, much less criminal.

It wasn't much more than a blurb. The part about the JD is interesting though. Not that I expect anything to come of that either.

A.J. Ross reports on a judge's refusal to release testimony heard by the grand jury that refused to indict an NYPD officer in the death of Eric Garner. (WABC)

NEW YORK (WABC) --

The NYPD says it will not proceed with any internal disciplinary proceedings against the officer involved in the death of Eric Garner.

It is despite a recommendation from the city's Civilian Complaint Review Board that it do so.

The CCRB ruled that Officer Daniel Pantaleo did in fact use a chokehold on Garner while arresting him in 2014 on Staten Island.

Garner went into cardiac arrest and died.

The NYPD says it won't discipline Officer Pantaleo at the request of the Justice Department due to its ongoing investigation.

St. Louis officer caught on camera shouting "we're going to kill this motherfucker," orders his partner to ram the stopped car with their SUV, gets out and murders the driver with his personal AK-47, and then plants a gun in the car. Acquitted.
