Cannibal Cop Will Be Home for Dinner…

Cannibal Cop

‘Cannibal Cop’ Gilberto Valle got a little taste of freedom on Tuesday after a federal judge in New York overturned his conviction, citing insufficient evidence for the charge that he plotted to cook, eat, rape, and murder women.

Judge Paul Gardephe decided the government failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Cannibal Cop “entered into a genuine agreement to kidnap a woman, or that he specifically intended to commit a kidnapping”.

Gardephe wrote in his reversal that “the evidentiary record is such that it is more likely than not the case that all of Valle’s Internet communications about kidnapping are fantasy role-play.”

Without enough evidence to support to the Cannibal Cop’s March 2013 conviction, Gilberto Valle was acquitted of the conspiracy to kidnap charge. However, Gardephe did uphold Valle’s second count of illegally using NYPD databases look up women’s personal information, but since Valle had already served 18 months of his life sentence, he’s basically free – as long as he stays in his mother’s house and away from the computer.

“I want to take the opportunity to apologize to everyone who’s been hurt, shocked and offended by my infantile actions,” a beaming Valle, 30, told a throng of media in his first public statements since his 2012 arrest.

He also thanked his family, his lawyers, and even the staff and inmates at the Metropolitan Correctional Center.

He did not thank his wife, Kathleen Mangan, who testified against him after finding disturbing photos on their shared computer, chat exerts from the website DarkFetishNet.com, and thousands of emails detailing his plans to kidnap, kill and eat young women – including her. Needless to say, they are not on good terms.

Remind Me Never to Get Arrested in Chicago…

Chicago Cops Beat Salon Owner

A 32-year-old Chicago woman filed a federal lawsuit last week accusing local police officers of committing a hate crime by spewing out racially charged comments while raiding her tanning salon last year.

Filmed by a security camera during a Chicago Police vice raid at the Copper Tan and Spa last summer, the video shows a Chicago police officer hit a handcuffed, kneeling woman in the head. The footage also contains audio of another Chicago cop screaming at 32-year-old Jianqing “Jessica” Klyzek and refusing to believe her when she tells him she is a U.S. citizen.

“You’re not f*cking American,” one officer can be heard yelling. “I’ll put you in a UPS box and send you back to wherever the f*ck you came from.”

“I’m a citizen, OK?” Klyzek says.

“No you’re not,” he responds. “No, you’re not a citizen. No, you’re not! No, you’re not! You’re here on our borrowed time. So mind your f*cking business before I shut this whole f*cking place down. And I’ll take this place and then whoever owns it will f*cking kill you because they don’t care about you, OK? I’ll take this building. You’ll be dead and your family will be dead.”

At one point, an officer can be heard asking to use his Taser on the 110 pound, 5-foot-2 Klyzek — a naturalized U.S. citizen who emigrated from China.

“Can I just Tase her? F*ck it. I can Tase her 10 f*cking times.”

Klyzek, admittedly an uncooperative arrestee, was subsequently charged with aggravated battery for allegedly scratching and biting the officers who arrested her. The charges were eventually thrown out but now it’s Klyzek’s time to shine. Klyzek sued the cops and the city, accusing the officers of a hate crime, excessive force and attempting a cover-up by framing her. Results are pending… but judge for yourself:

According to a police report, the initial raid was prompted when an undercover officer was allegedly offered a sex act by a masseuse in a back room. Well, after the incident I’m pretty sure the salon won’t be offering cops sexual pleasures anymore – so problem solved! Good work Chicago PD!

PR Fail: #myNYPD Backfires on NYC Police Department

 New York City Police Department

The New York City Police Department learned the hard way that asking New Yorkers to tweet photos of themselves with police officers may not be the best idea.

On Tuesday, the New York City Police Department asked: “Do you have a photo with a member of the NYPD? Tweet us & tag it #myNYPD.”

Little did they know New Yorkers are a cynical bunch and the police department’s public outreach campaign quickly turned into a PR fail.

The twitter call-out did elicit a few family friendly images of smiling police officers, but mostly people were just being dicks about it and posted photos of police brutality and officers asleep on the job.

#myNYPD became so popular that at one point, the hashtag was trending in the top 10 on Twitter, not only for New York, but in the world. The backlash quickly spread to the Los Angeles police department where #myLAPD began to trend, followed by the Seattle, San Francisco and Denver police departments.

Deputy Chief Kim Y. Royster said in a brief statement Tuesday night that the NYPD is working on “creating new ways to communicate effectively with the community” and stated that the uncensored and open dialogue was good for the city. Yes, it was good for the city. It taught everyone a very valuable lesson: be careful what you ask for on the internet.

How Many Austin Police Officers Does It Take To Arrest One Jaywalking Jogger?

Austin Jogger Arrested for Jaywalking

The answer: four! According to eye witnesses, a 24-year-old female jogger was dragged screaming to a police car in Austin, Texas after being arrested for failing to provide ID while jogging and jaywalking. And the real kicker is she wasn’t even Hispanic!

Amanda Jo Stephen was out for a jog last Thursday when an officer yelled for her to stop as she crossed the street. With music pumping through her headphones, Amanda didn’t hear the cop and kept on jogging. When the officer caught up with her he grabbed her from behind and asked for identification. When the startled jogger refused to give him her name, the two officers on the scene placed her in handcuffs and called for backup.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” she shouted. “I didn’t do anything wrong. I didn’t f*cking do anything wrong. I just crossed the street.”

When two additional officers on bicycles arrived, the jogger was promptly arrested and hauled into a police cruiser screaming and crying.

The incident was caught on video recorded a student at the University of Texas.

“I was sitting at the Starbucks at 24th and San Antonio,” the student, Chris Quinterotold the Daily Texan, the student newspaper for the University of Texas-Austin. “Then I hear a cop shout at an innocent girl jogging through West Campus with her headphones on.”

“She repeatedly pleaded with them, saying that she was just exercising and to let her go,” Quintero continued.

The Austin Police Department responded to the incident, saying  the local police are working on “pedestrian enforcement”, focusing on pedestrian and bike safety. Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo was quick to defend his officers and place the blame solely on the uncooperative jogger who, he added, should be thankful she wasn’t sexually assaulted.

“This officer hears the other officer yelling for someone to ‘stop!’ Immediately starts running after the individual and is yelling at her to stop, ‘Austin Police, stop!’ So now you have two officers yelling at this person,”  Chief Acevedo said at a press conference Friday afternoon.

“Whether or not he grabbed her by behind it doesn’t…it’s not relevant! At some point she knows it’s a cop! The cop asked her a lawful question that she is lawfully required to answer and she didn’t! That’s why she went to jail,” Acevedo continued.

“And quite frankly she wasn’t charged with resisting. She’s lucky I wasn’t the arresting officer, because I wouldn’t have been as generous.”

“In other cities there’s cops who are actually committing sexual assaults on duty, so I thank God that this is what passes for a controversy in Austin, Texas,” he added. Wow.

While the police work on “pedestrian safety”, Austin joggers might want to start working on their endurance – they’ll need it when Chief Acevedo runs them out of town.

Oops That’s A Nintendo Wii, Not A Gun

Nintendo Wii

Florida trash aren’t the only ones who shoot unarmed teenagers. A Georgian cop fatally shot 17-year-old Christopher Roupe in the chest after mistaking his Nintendo Wii controller for a gun.

When officers showed up at Christopher Roupe’s home on Valentine’s Day to serve a probation violation warrant on his father, the teenager opened to door to an unpleasant surprise: death. The police officer later said in a statement that she was forced to shoot because Roupe had pointed at gun at her when he opened the door, but Roupe’s family and witnesses at the scene insist the boy was holding a Wii video game controller because he was getting ready to watch a movie.

“It just doesn’t add up,” Cole Law, the family’s attorney, observed. “We don’t know where [the claim that he had a gun] came from. The eyewitnesses on the scene clearly state that he had a Wii controller in his hand. He heard a knock at the door. He asked who it was, there was no response so he opened the door and upon opening the door he was immediately shot in the chest.”

Neighbor Ken Yates said that he saw the female officer immediately after the teen was killed and described her as being visibly distraught.

“This is tragic,” Yates said. “She came out of this house. She put her head in her hands and she was sobbing.”

The circumstances of the tragic shooting are being reviewed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation – because a gun looks a lot different than a Nintendo Wii controller.

But in the meantime, we can now add holding a Nintendo Wii controller to the long list of reasons why you might get shot. Others include: playing loud music, texting during a movie, throwing mayonnaise on a car, and walking around wearing a hoodie in Florida.
