We found 85,000 cops who’ve been investigated for misconduct. Now you can read their records.

USA TODAY is leading a national effort to obtain and publish disciplinary and misconduct records for thousands of police officers.

Updated 6:33 a.m. CDT May 23, 2019

At least 85,000 law enforcement officers across the USA have been investigated or disciplined for misconduct over the past decade, an investigation by USA TODAY Network found.

Officers have beaten members of the public, planted evidence and used their badges to harass women. They have lied, stolen, dealt drugs, driven drunk and abused their spouses.

Despite their role as public servants, the men and women who swear an oath to keep communities safe can generally avoid public scrutiny for their misdeeds.

The records of their misconduct are filed away, rarely seen by anyone outside their departments. Police unions and their political…

From Facebook: Tex. Judge awards family $127k for taking child without warrant

TOMBALL, Texas (KTRK) — A Harris County judge has ordered Child Protective Services to pay a Tomball family $127,000 after finding they wrongfully removed their children from their home.

It started as an accidental fall for Melissa and Dillon Bright’s 5-month-old son Mason. He was rushed to the hospital, where doctors found he had two fractures in his skull.

The family says that because doctors did not believe the second fracture came from the fall, they were investigated for child abuse.

“We were just completely oblivious to the fact that they were accusing us of abuse,” Melissa said.

CPS placed the children with another family member. The Brights tell ABC13 that in the meantime they sought a second opinion from another doctor.

That doctor explained that the second fracture could have in fact come from the same fall.

While still in placement with another family member, the…

From Lanre Amu: He did nothing wrong but expose corruption and the ARDC is holding up relicensing him

MaryGSykes.com

When Lanre Amu was a lawyer, he fought tirelessly for the rights of many people, often without pay.  He served the poor, the person of color and the immigrant.

He was well educated and held three degrees, on in engineering, an MBA and a JD.  He is a devout Christian and follows the principles of Jesus.

However, when he exposed corruption of certain high powered judges in Cook County, the power that be, Jerome Larkin and James Grogin of the ARDC (Atty Regn and Disciplinary Commission) put him through a kangaroo trial with absolutely no witnesses and against him and awarded him a 4 year suspension for revealing publicly the fact that Judge Lynn Egan was having her brother’s law firm appear in front of her and was granting all their motions (no matter how stupid), and denying all of Amu’s motions.

He complained, and the ARDC went after him…

From our corrupt legal friends in the UK: Top UK court finds Judge bullied mother into accepting care orders

Top Court Finds Judge Bullied Mother Into Accepting Care Orders For Her Children

Top Court Finds Judge Bullied Mother Into Accepting Care Orders For Her Children

A judge bullied a mother into agreeing to care orders for her two children, the Court of Appeal has found. The orders made by Her Honour Judge Carr QC in Sheffield were set aside by the Court of Appeal and replaced with short-term interim care orders.

The Court of Appeal raised a number of serious concerns in its judgment. The now common practice of judges making up their minds about a case before the parties put their arguments forward during hearings was noted, a phenomenon that will be familiar to lay advisors and families who have been forced to represent themselves in their own family cases.

Lord Justice Peter Jackson…

HOW CAN ILLINOIS EVER PASS A BUDGET WHEN IT APPEARS CRONYISM, RACISM AND CORRUPTION IS RUNNING THE STATE?

MOST IMPORTANTLY WITH JUDGES TRESPASSING UPON THE LAWS AND COMMITTING TREASON IT APPEARS THE ON PERSONS EMPLOYED ARE THOSE WHO ARE CRIMINALLY MINDED TO MAINTAIN THEIR POSITIONS UNLAWFULLY.

Please find below a complaint I filed against Administrator Jerome Larkin who covers (read: enables)  massive  fraud upon IL court systems committed by certain corrupt and dishonest lawyers whom Larkin helps to maintain  their legal licenses while harass and oppress ethical lawyers who fulfill their duties and report corruption.
Complaint was filed with Cook County Board of Ethics, IL Supreme Court, Senate, and IL Attorney General and mailed to Chicago and Washington FBI offices.
I will provide updates how my  Complaint was handled by authorities.
Best regards,
Elena Fedorova

  • A leaked photo from a Texas courthouse shows 37 people accused of illegally entering the US being processed all at once.
  • In these kinds of trials, defendants are often expected to answer questions in unison to save time.
  • It’s illegal to take photos in federal court, but somebody broke the rules to get the image out.
  • The image has been circulating online in the legal community and was published recently by The Intercept.
  • Though they might be unfamiliar to many, trials like this have been going on in border courts for more than a decade.
  • The Trump’s administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy is making such scenes more common.
