Samantha Bloom, who is disabled and uses a wheelchair, repeatedly called police about her son, James Alex Fields Jr., in 2010 and 2011, telling officers he was on medication to control his temper, transcripts from 911 calls show.

Fields, 20, is accused of ramming his car into a crowd of counter-protesters on Saturday in Charlottesville, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

DIPSHIDIOT OF THE DAY: CHEATHAM COUNTY JAIL DEPUTIES…….(VIDEO)

18-YEAR-OLD INMATE TORTURED

BY TASER MULTIPLE TIMES

By Marty Carlson

8-12-2017


Jordan Norris was arrested November 2016 for felony manufacturing and possession of marijuana for sale, and possession of drug paraphernalia, theft under $500 and five counts of possession of a prohibited weapon.

After his arrest he was taken to the Cheatham county jail and booked.

According to a lawsuit filed by Norris he began suffering a mental health episode whilst the hind bars and started banging his head against his cell. That prompted deputies to remove him and placed him in a restraint chair.

During that transition as well as after he was secured, he was repeatedly shocked with a Taser. He was stunned again later well on suicide watch and eventually was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

During the episode and transfer shares deputies repeatedly used a Taser to shock Norris, in addition as a video shows they continued to tase him after he was restrained in the chair.

The video shows Norris’s eyes bulging out as he was painfully zapped for nearly a full minute.

And one deputy stated, “I’ll keep doing it until I run out of batteries.” And there was laughter coming from somewhere in the room during the incident.


Norris’s had trouble getting people to believe what it happened some of those and people included his family, until they saw the video from the jail.

William Chapman, Norris’s stepfather, counted more than 40 Burns on the young man’s body. He stated that look like he had the measles.

The three deputies that are named in the lawsuit have been placed on administrative leave. And County Sheriff Mike Breedlove released a statement that he’s ordered the department to examine its use of force policy he has also requested an independent investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of investigation.

DAWG SAYS:

Being former law enforcement, I am disgusted by what I see in this video, and there needs to be some type of accountability for this type behavior. It is not normal human nature to want to torture people, even inmates. If there’s an issue that needs to be dealt with it can be done in proper ways other than continually running electricity through somebody’s body. Anyone that supports this type of activity is part of the problem and not part of the solution.


DIPSHIDIOTS OF THE DAY: NEW ORLEANS DA’S OFFICE…….

 

DISTRICT ATTORNEY ORDERED

TO TURN OVER NAMES

OF PROSECUTORS

BY MARTY CARLSON

7-14-2017



Civil district court judge Nakisha Ervin-Knott has ordered Orleans County district attorney Leon Cannizzaro to disclose the names of all prosecutors in his office who used “fake subpoenas” to compel witnesses to talk to them. Cannizzaro has been given 20 days to produce those names. And those are just the ones that are from 2017, they must also provide the same information going back to 2013.

It was previously reported, Cannizzaro had sought to jail a domestic violence victim after she refused to respond to a fake subpoena’s office had sent her. The document had the word “subpoena” at the top of the page even though they had not been signed by a judge, which meant disobeying them would not be a criminal offense.

Cannizzaro has received substantial backlash about these fake subpoenas, with some people calling for him to be removed from office. In the District Attorney’s Office is said to fake subpoenas would no longer go out and be replaced with document that said, “notice to appear.”

The ACLU of Louisiana had asked the District Attorney’s Office to provide information identifying the lawyers in his office who issued or authorized the fake subpoenas. When he refused, the organization sued under Louisiana’s open records laws.

Judge Ervin-Knott agreed the information was public record and ordered the DA to comply.

Cannizzaro has had other issues in the past, recently it was revealed a shooting victim was taken into custody and jailed after their office feared he would not testify against the man accused of the shooting.

In addition, Cannizzaro has also jailed rate victims who refused to testify against their attacker. A New Orleans newspaper reported that in 2016 one woman was jailed for eight days after refusing to testify against the man who raped her.

Attorneys representing Cannizzaro’s office did not argue to the court that the information sought was any way privilege, but contended the request should be denied because producing the records we require manual examination of nearly 20,000 cases for each year. He argued that staff time was overly burdensome on an agency already spread too thin in the wake of $600,000 budget cut levied this year.

The attorney also argued a public records request cannot interfere with the offices constitutional and legal duties.

DAWG SAYS:

Once again it appears that a top law enforcement agency has forgotten what their constitutional and legal duties are, Putting money over dispensing justice. And it sounds strangely familiar that victims are turned into criminals, while the criminals are still walking the streets.
