Expression of Opinion on Police Deaths and Police Brutality Leads to House Search; Arrest

The following content was shared with the CopBlock Network by Katelyn Rothwell, via the CopBlock.org Submissions Page.

In the post Katelyn details how their house was searched and her boyfriend Steven was arrested by police in Maryland after he made a phone call to the Dallas Police Department expressing his opinion that the recent shooting of police in Dallas was a reaction to the behavior of police toward citizens.

Apparently, the Dallas police then contacted the Maryland State Police and claimed he had made threats against them based on his statements that incidents of police brutality and outright killings by police may have motivated the shootings against the police. Regardless of the popularity of such opinions or who it is those opinions are expressed to, it’s pretty clearly a matter of free speech and protected under the First Amendment.

Note: This is a good time for a reminder to always film the police. Filming the Maryland police conducting a search and arresting someone based on the non-crime of using their free speech rights is important. Even beyond that, had Steven recorded what he said during the original phone call, he would have pretty solid evidence of whether he made threats or not.

(By the way, GoFundMe doesn’t allow crowdfunding for legal expenses. If you need to do so, you should use FundRazr instead.)

Date of Incident: July 15, 2016
Department(s) Involved: Maryland State Police, Dallas Police Dept.

My boyfriend Steven and I live in Maryland, he follows CopBlock on Facebook all of the time. He called the Dallas Police Department yesterday (July 14th) trying to get them to realize that the shit they are doing (killing unarmed citizens, etc.) is the reason for the murders of cops that have happened in Dallas and everywhere else around the country.

People are tired of police brutality and people are lashing back because of it. He wasn’t saying that it was right or threatening them or anything like that. He didn’t even block his phone number, because he was only using the First Amendment, freedom of speech. He did nothing wrong.

Today, we got a knock at the door at our apartment and six Maryland State Troopers were at the door. They wanted to know why he called them and they stated that he was threatening the police officers over the phone with death threats. Steven told them it was not like that. He explained that he was only speaking his mind to them, saying that it will keep happening if that shit continues. He maybe could have worded it better or went about it differently when he called them, but he never made death threats or anything like that.

They searched our apartment, which was a waste of time, and took his phone, then left. However, they came back about an hour later. They said they had spoken to their higher ups and decided to take it through circuit court and charge him with threatening a police officer over the phone. He is now sitting in jail waiting to speak to the commissioner on Monday.

I was pretty mad when he told me he called them, but that is still not something to get arrested for. I believe this is wrong and I think I am going to start a GoFundMe account to raise money for his bail when we get it Monday. Apparently, our First Amendment rights are being taken from us and our government is falling apart. This is absolutely ridiculous.

Please help us any way you can.

California Cop Bobby Carrillo Released From Jail Early Because He Was Sad And Homesick

King City CA Bobby Carrillo

Officer Bobby Carrillo of the King City Police Department in Northern California has been released from jail after serving less than three months of a one year jail sentence. Monterey County Judge Julie Culver approved his request to serve the remainder of that sentence on house arrest.

In March, Carrillo pled no contest to charges in which he was accused of being the “mastermind” of a scheme involving six cops total, including two chiefs, in which they had low-income and minority residents’ cars illegally towed after stopping them without probable cause in a scheme to profit personally.

By preying on poor people, mostly of Latino background, Carrillo targeted those he knew would be unable to pay the impound fees to get their cars back. Part of the scheme was that for every ten cars his mafia crew stole Carrillo would get to keep one himself.

What was the reason for his early release from the Monterey County Jail you might ask. It was because he was depressed and wanted to go home. Plus, he had lost weight and the other inmates didn’t like him because he is a former cop.

Via KSBW “Action 8 News,” the local NBC affiliate in Monterey County:

A disgraced former King City police officer, Bobby Carrillo, was feeling depressed while serving a 1-year jail sentence and wanted to go home, according to prosecutors

On Thursday, Monterey County Judge Julie Culver granted Carrillo’s request to be released from jail and serve the remainder of his sentence on home confinement.

The judge’s decision surprised and disappointed prosecutors.

“We disagree with the judge. We feel police officers should be held to a higher standard,” Deputy District Attorney Steve Somers said.

Carrillo had been behind bars since April 29, and he served fewer than three months in the Monterey County Jail.

Defense attorney Susan Chapman said Carrillo had lost 30 pounds, his mental and physical health was suffering, and he received death threats.

Being an inmate was especially hard on Carrillo because he was held in a small, isolated cell, where he had very limited contact with other people, Chapman said. Carrillo was held in isolation to protect him from other inmates.

“Mr. Carrillo had been treated harsher than other individuals convicted of the same type of (charges),” Chapman said.

District Attorney Dean Flippo said he had no doubts that Carrillo felt uncomfortable as an inmate because he was a former police officer.

However, “(Carrillo’s) status as a former peace officer cannot be adequate to eliminate jail as an appropriate punishment.

Although jail is a difficult place for former police officers, that should exist as an extra deterrent to violating the law,” Flippo argued in a letter to the judge.

“The defendant has provided no evidence of medical necessity to change his jail sentence. Every inmate can obviously state that he is uncomfortable in jail. Surely this should not be the standard to have a jail sentence changed,” Flippo said.

But Culver sided with Carrillo’s defense attorney.

Of course, anyone who has been to jail or knows someone that has been to jail knows that everyone is unhappy about being there and would rather be sitting at home. It’s also pretty common to lose a bunch of weight from the inedible food that is given to inmates. Some people might even argue that jail being unpleasant is kinda the point.

Even the one valid issue of danger from other inmates is just a matter of degrees. When you throw people into an overcrowded cage and treat them like animals they often respond as such. They certainly will be a little more threatening toward someone who played a part in the system that put them in that cage, but other inmates face the possibility of violence also.

It looks like these Bad Apples have found yet another way to make sure they receive their Policeman’s Discount whenever the Good Cops are forced (kicking and screaming) to go through the motions of acting like they want to hold them accountable.

“I’m homesick and the other inmates are being mean to me” will likely be taking it’s place next to “I feared for my life” and he reached for his waistband/my gun” in the magical get out of jail free cards they keep handy just in case.

Jesus Arevalo, the LVMPD Cop Who Murdered Stanley Gibson, Ends Up in Jail (For 10 Days)

Jesus Arevalo LV Police Murder Stanley GibsonThe former Las Vegas cop, who in December of 2011 fired the shots that killed Gulf War vet Stanley Gibson as he sat unarmed in a car, has been sentenced to 10 days of jail for contempt of court by Las Vegas Municipal Court Judge Heidi Almase. This particular sentence is related to a subsequent charge in which Jesus Arevalo was found guilty of harassing his ex-wife and her new boyfriend. Arevalo was seen and heard by numerous witnesses making death threats against Steve Delao, who is now married to Arevalo’s former wife Catherine, in public at a church.

It’s not exactly clear what constituted that charge of contempt. However, one of the stipulations of his sentencing was that if he violated the protection order his wife has against him after his release he would have to serve the 179 day suspended sentence that he received from that conviction. This would imply that the contempt charge involves some sort of violation of that protection order.

stanley_gibson_shootingAt the time that Jesus Arevalo shot him, Stanley Gibson was not even suspected of being armed (as testified by other officers at the scene), was suffering from a panic attack precipitated by a mental illness and PTSD related to his wartime military service, and was merely sitting in a car that had been blocked in and completely immobilized by police vehicles (see video embedded below). He was incoherent, unresponsive and not in any way threatening or even capable of harming anyone. The police had responded to a suspected break in after Stanley became confused and went to the wrong apartment thinking it was where he lived after having just moved.

Arevalo was a problem cop with an extensive history of complaints and internal discipline, who should have been fired long before he got the opportunity to kill Stanley Gibson. Instead, he was moved from one unit to another and eventually put on the graveyard shift. According to his ex-wife, he had in fact stated that he wanted to kill someone in order to get paid time off, as well as making disparaging and racist comments about Gibson to her after the shooting. Arevalo is just one example of the LVMPD’s abysmal history of refusing and even actively working to prevent accountability for the criminals within their ranks.

Jesus Arevalo's Court Record

Jesus Arevalo’s Court Record

Although on paper he was punished by being fired, Jesus Arevalo was never held accountable or punished in any real way for the murder of Stanley Gibson. Instead, he was effectively rewarded for his deadly actions that day. First, he was given two years of paid vacation while his former coworkers at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department “investigated” the shooting. Then former Sheriff Gillespie dragged his feet long enough before “firing” Jesus Arevalo to allow him to put in for disability (for the stress of being called a murderer after he murderer someone).

He was approved for that disability just one month before his “firing” by the LVMPD. Among those on the board that approved his disability were Chris Collins, who at that time was the president of the LVPPA (the police union for departments within the Las Vegas area). Collins stated that he didn’t feel it was a conflict of interest because they “didn’t hang out together.” As part of his “disability,” Arevalo now receives just under $30,000 (plus future cost of living increases) per year for the rest of his life. Unlike Social Security disability, people receiving government disability are also not precluded from working, they are just not allowed to be employed in the same field. So, Arevalo will receive that $30k/year Killer’s Bonus on top of whatever he makes in another job.

Harassment and Intimidation Against Innocent Colorado Family for “Ignoring” Neighbor

The following post was submitted by Danielle Kekoavia, via the CopBlock.org submissions page.

line-banner

Date of Incident(s): August 19-20, 2015

THATS-RIGHT-ALL-CAUGHT-ON-CAMERA-DANI-CAUGHT-ON-CAMERA-HARASSMENT-INTIMIDATION-by-NORTHGLENN-MEDIATION-FORCE-vs.-THE-KEKOAS-PoliceRecordingsKekoas.comNORTHGLENN, CO — Three Neighborhood Services Code Enforcement Officers and a Community Service Officer from Northglenn Police Dept. were sent over to harass and intimidate Curtis and Danielle Kekoa, parents of six, all because the next door neighbor was being “ignored” and called the police to complain. That’s right—the neighbor called the police because she was being ignored by the Kekoas. And even more ridiculous, the Northglenn Police responded right away to the 911 call.

Since “ignoring someone” is not a criminal matter, Officer Gillette from Northglenn Police left the scene and later dispatched Northglenn’s “Professional Mediation Task Force” over to handle the private issue between neighbors by attempting unlawful entry, aggressively banging down the Kekoas’ door, yelling through the window, then “dragging” them out of their home and into a confrontation for over 45 minutes.The latest disturbance began on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 when Officer Tom Carlson and an unidentified Officer with Northglenn Neighborhood Services Code Enforcement showed up unannounced at the home of Curtis and Danielle Kekoa, then left a business card with “Please call” written on it. Less than 24 hours later, on August 20, 2015, four Northglenn Code Enforcement Officers were called to the next door neighbor’s home to have access to the Kekoas’ backyard by looking through the chain-link fence to find a “code-violation” of some sort. Upon arrival, a story about “pool noodles” was fabricated by the neighbor in another attempt to harass the Kekoas and force them into a confrontation because she was being “ignored.”

banner420Shortly after peering and prowling over the fence into the yard where the Kekoas’ children play, two Northglenn Officers including a supervisor quickly stormed over to the home of Curtis and Danielle Kekoa and attempted unlawful entry through the front door. Immediately after the unlawful entry failed, the Supervisor aggressively knocks over 30 times then yells at the window saying, “I just wanna to talk to you! You don’t have to videotape me! Just come to the door!” Seconds later, she pounds on the door “a little harder” nearly ten more times to “make sure you heard it.” All of this activity is caught on camera from several different angles.

As observed by the four Northglenn Code Enforcement Officers, there were absolutely “no code-violations” at all, yet Stephanie Pelster, who identified herself as the Supervisor and “Professional Mediator” for Northglenn Code Enforcement, along with Officers Tom Carlson and Phil Stiebler with Neighborhood Services Code Enforcement—all dressed looking like bounty hunters with big badges and tactical gear—accompanied by a uniformed Community Service Officer named Michelle Soustek #438 from Northglenn Police Dept., came over to harass and coerce the Kekoas out of their home against their will to communicate with their next door neighbor.

This is a clear violation of the Kekoas’ First Amendment right to freedom of expression which is to ignore the neighbor, not to mention the use of excessive force when there was no code-violation, no crime, no probable cause and no warrant to justify such actions. The Kekoas’ right to have privacy and live peaceably in their own home has also been clearly violated, in addition to living with the fear of being intimidated, bullied and forced into a confrontation by the government whenever someone wants the police to do their bidding. Not only is this a complete waste of resources over a non-criminal matter, this is an absolute abuse of power by government code-enforcement employees who are trained to handle unsightly trash or overgrown weeds and tree branches, not complex relationships and private civil matters.

Another great place on the internet to show your CopBlock love.

Another great place on the internet to show your CopBlock love.

Throughout the entire 45 minute scene in front of the Kekoas’ home, Officer Tom Carlson repeatedly tries to pressure the Kekoas to take part in their “new program” which is designed to have them “abide by an agreement” with the neighbor. This meeting is supposed to take place while sitting at a table in a “controlled environment” run by government “facilitators” and trained “professional mediators” whose “job is to help” neighbors with issues such as a “lack of communication.” The Kekoas expressed repeatedly that they have no interest whatsoever in being “programmed” by the government and have no intention of going to any meetings with the neighbor.

Supervisor Stephanie Pelster also admitted multiple times to the harassment and apologized to Danielle Kekoa for “banging on the door, dragging you out of your home…and disturbing your peace.” By the end of the confrontation, the Northglenn Code-Enforcement “Mediation Team” acknowledged that the Kekoas “want to be left alone” and that the neighbor should be told to “mind your own business.” Regarding all the “busybody” behavior by the neighbor and not being able to live in peace at home, Supervisor Stephanie Pelster said repeatedly to the Kekoas, “That’s no way to live.” The Supervisor reassured the Kekoa family that the neighbor would be advised to “leave them alone and pretend that they’re not there” or to “build a privacy fence” so she doesn’t have to look in the backyard and start problems. But naturally, the neighbor disregarded the advice.

The Kekoas were also given business cards by each of the “Professional Mediation Officers” and were told that they could be contacted if there was anything that was needed. Supervisor Pelster extended a personal invitation to Danielle Kekoa to, “Call if you need anything.” Danielle Kekoa made multiple attempts to contact the Supervisor Stephanie Pelster, leaving at least three voice messages, but Pelster did not return the phone call. According to Officer Tom Carlson, email messages sent by Danielle Kekoa to Northglenn reportedly went to the spam folder and could not be accessed by any of the recipients, though they could see it on their spam folders.

banner cbn on fbOfficer Tom Carlson was also left a message and returned the call. After speaking with Danielle Kekoa for nearly 30 minutes, Tom Carlson sent a letter to the Kekoas at their request saying in part:
“Based on our phone conversation, it is clearly evident you are not interested with being involved with any type of mediation between you and your neighbor. We as the City will not try to contact you in reference to mediation services from this point forward.”

(The recording with Tom Carlson and Danielle Kekoa will be released soon.)

As a direct result of the government getting involved with a personal and private matter, the neighbor’s antagonistic and aggressive attitude towards the Kekoas, along with her abuse of Police resources have only escalated since the Northglenn “Professional Mediation Task Force” arrived. Now the Kekoa family is being targeted even further by the neighbor and law enforcement for simply trying to live at peace in their own house. Attempts to file a complaint against the neighbor or the City of Northglenn with Officer J. Burke #445 have been ignored, mocked and disregarded by him and the Northglenn Police Department.

This recent incident in August 2015 is more evidence of a long pattern of harassment by the City of Northglenn against the Kekoas dating back to October 2011 on multiple false allegations of child abuse, Social Services investigations, anonymous “welfare” checks, threats of false arrest over “harassment” and more. Each frivolous investigation by the government was closed and unfounded because evidence does not exist for such false accusations. Yet no investigation has ever been conducted to look into the violent criminals who have repeatedly called the police on the Kekoas making false reports against them over the past four years. Furthermore, the Kekoas have received multiple death threats which they have reported and have not been followed up by the police which puts the family and the entire community at even greater risk since Northglenn Police officers refuse to serve and protect them. The Kekoas’ rights have been violated even further by not being offered equal protection under the law as the Fourteenth Amendment states.

banner copblock twitterOn Thursday, September 3, 2015, EXACTLY TWO WEEKS AFTER the disturbance over the neighbor and one week after the phone conversation with Tom Carlson, an Adams County Sheriff’s Deputy began knocking on the Kekoas’ door on multiple home visits. It is presumed that the neighbor is now using the Sheriff’s office to harass the Kekoas and force them into a confrontation since it didn’t work with Northglenn’s “Professional Mediation Task Force” earlier. But the Kekoas refuse to be forced into another confrontation—especially by the Sheriff on behalf of the neighbor!

The Kekoas plan to hold the City of Northglenn accountable for being unjustly targeted and for the pattern of harassment from 2011 to the present day. And the only way to hold the city accountable is to release the video evidence to be examined by the court of public opinion since law enforcement is completely incompetent and can’t be expected or trusted to do the right thing. The community in Northglenn expects every “Service Officer” to operate within the law and show every resident in town the same level of Courtesy, Professionalism, and Respect to ensure we all have a safe and peaceful place to live.

A female police detective from the El Paso Police Department has been accused of choking out her step daughter, and threatening to end her life in a drunken rage, because of the girl’s dog.

Detective Jessica Martinez allegedly told the victim, “I discipline in this house” and “I can end your life.” According to the victim’s father, Detective Martinez struck herself in the eye in order to claim that the victim hit her and instigated the violence. The detective was arrested the next day, was quickly released with only a $2,000 bail bond and paid administrative leave (Otherwise known as paid vacation.).

The victim, whose name and age were not released, told deputies that her stepmother, Martinez, began to yell at her about the victim’s dog when they were eating dinner, according to the affidavit.

The victim grabbed the dog and went to her room, according to the affidavit.

Martinez then followed the victim into the room and continued to yell at her while the victim sat on her bed, the affidavit states. According to the affidavit, Martinez put her hands around the victim’s neck and pulled her hair.

The victim was able to get away and ran into a hallway, but Martinez allegedly grabbed the victim again by the neck and hair, the affidavit said.

Martinez then began to tightly squeeze the victim’s neck, according to the affidavit. The victim told deputies that as Martinez squeezed her neck, she could not breathe, began to feel dizzy and almost passed out, the document states.

The victim then fell to the floor and Martinez allegedly dragged her through the hallway, which resulted in the victim suffering injuries to her elbows, knees and back, according to the affidavit.”

Death Threats Received After Interview of Erik Scott’s Father

Erik Scott's father, Bill, discussing threats received after an interview.

Erik Scott’s father, Bill, discussing threats received after an interview.

INTERVIEWS & DEATH THREATS

Recently, William Scott, whose son Erik was murdered by William Mosher and other members of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department at a Las Vegas area Costco, was interviewed for an internet  radio show entitled “Truth is Stranger than Fiction with Pete Wichert” (embedded below).

After the interview, which was broadcast August 20 (2014), Pete reported receiving “a number of sinister phone calls,” which included death threats against Bill Scott, as well as Pete himself and his other guests, including Joe Biggs, who gained some notoriety earlier this week after a cop in Ferguson, MO. threatened, on camera, to murder him while pointing an AR-15 at him.

Below is a repost of Bill Scott’s own account of this incident taken from his “Erik Scott Memorial Blog.” As you can see by reading his comments, Bill doesn’t personally believe the threats are linked to his son’s murderers or any of their enablers within the LVMPD. Pete Wichert, however, does believe it’s connected. Since it’s rather common, when speaking to victims of Las Vegas area police, especially those employed by Metro, to hear accounts of threats and other forms of intimidation being directed at them and/or their families, it’s not at all outside of the realm of possibilities that Pete is right.

Death Threats

“After doing an interview on “The Truth is Stranger Than Fiction With Pete Wichert” Internet radio show on Wed., 20 Aug.,

Erik Scott, Murdered by the LVMPD in 2010.

Erik Scott, Murdered by the LVMPD in 2010.

the host received a number of sinister phone calls throughout the night.

The voice-altered caller threatened the lives of Pete Wichert, two of his other guests, and yours truly. The caller said, “William B. Scott will be lucky to be alive long enough…to get on ‘Infowars,’ because he spoke about his son’s murder.”

Pete’s theory: My account of Erik’s murder-by-cop might have “upset” the Cleveland Mob or a venal, die-hard police union. Pete said the caller repeatedly warned that “Scott had better keep his mouth shut.” Evidently, the worst vitriol was focused on an Infowars reporter, Joe Biggs, and ol’ man Scott.

Joe’s on-camera interview, earlier this week, showed a St. Ann, MO, cop, Lt. Jay Albers, pointing an AR-15 rifle at Joe and yelling, “I’ll f****** kill you!” The video was carried by Fox News and other TV networks, and resulted in Lt. Albers being “suspended indefinitely,” according to a statement released by the St. Ann Police Department.

Evidently, the caller demanded that I stop recounting the story of my son’s murder at the hands of William “Curley Joe” Mosher. It’s annoying police officers, who blindly, desperately hang onto the ridiculous, false narrative spun by Las Vegas Metro PD’s chief cover-up architect, Captain Patrick Neville.

Upon advice of a retired sheriff and a couple of police officer friends, I reported the death threats to appropriate authorities. Personally, I think the caller’s a sick, warped nutcase holed up in his mom’s basement. Rest assured, though, all threatened parties are taking protective precautions.

Finally, please note these latest, shocking statistics about killer-cops throughout America:
At least 700 people have been killed by U.S. police, since January 1, 2014.

At least 1449 have been killed since May 1, 2013.

At least 1087 were killed May 1, 2013 – May 1, 2014.
