"Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new.They'll stretch out after you wear them awhile."
"Take your hands off the car, or I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document."
"If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."
"Can you run faster than 1,200 feet per second?In case you didn't know, that is the average speed of a 9 mm bullet fired from my gun."
"So you don't know how fast you were going.I guess that means I can write anything I want on the ticket, huh?"
"Yes, Sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh...did I mention that I am the shift supervisor?"
"Warning! You want a warning? O.K.,I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."
"The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?" (my favorite!)
"Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy, and step in monkey poop."
"Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."
"In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC."
"Just how big were those two beers?"
"No sir we don't have quotas anymore. We used to have quotas but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we want."
"I'm glad to hear the Chief of Police is a good personal friend of yours.At least you know someone who can post your bail."
"You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't. Sign here."

Hey All!  I am new to this community and stoked it's here.  I am in a Masters program for Forensic Science.  Woo-Hoo!  I will specialize in Crime Scene Investigation.  In the mean time..........for the Constitutional Law and Criminal Procedure class I am in right now, I have to do a dissertation on a legal constitutional decision.  Any suggestions?  The only idea I have been able to come up with is dealing with Miranda warnings and the difference between custody and interrogation.  I have to submit a topic by Thursday.  Any help would be great.  I look forward to future discourse.

Mental Patient Faces Murder Charges
Facility Launches Internal Investigation

POSTED: 12:42 PM PST November 21, 2003
SAN LEANDRO, Calif. -- A mental patient in the East Bay is accused of killing her doctor at the John George Psychiatric Pavilion in San Leandro.

Friends and co-workers of the victim, Dr. Erlinda Ursua and her family are devastated by the loss.

Doctor Killed In San Leandro

Alameda County Sheriff's Office Lt. Michael Hart said Ursua, "was just very likable ... bubbly personality. She participated with a group of doctors who went to the Philippines to provide free medical care to the needy and underprivileged every year. A wonderful person. An absolute tragedy."
Hart said Ursua, 60, was performing a physical exam on a psychiatric patient when she was attacked. The coroner's report says she died from blunt force trauma to the head.
Rene Pavon, 37, is in custody of the Alameda County Sheriff's Department, facing charges in Ursua's death.
According to officials, Pavon was taken to John George Psychiatric Pavilion for a 72-hour psychiatric observation on Tuesday after her sister called police to her home complaining about Pavon.
A staff member at the treatment center realized something was wrong Wednesday afternoon after seeing Pavon walking around in the housing unit with a partially completed medical slip. The staff member knew Pavon was not supposed to have the form and went to the exam room to report the problem. The worker found the badly beaten doctor laying in the room.
Pavon was incoherent when investigators tried to question her, according to Hart. Pavon was taken to the Santa Clara County psychiatric facility.According to officials at John George Psychiatric Pavilion, there was an ongoing effort to increase security at the facility. A task force was formed in July to address security concerns by the staff and the doctors at the facility.
There is an internal investigation at the center as staff members mourn the loss of one of their most loved doctors.
The sheriff's department is also investigating a possible restraining order filed in South Dakota against Pavon.

Ok, to get Honors Credit for my Law Enforcement& Management class I have to do some sort of project that goes above and beyond the requirements of the class. However, the teacher was incredibly vague on what I should actually do this project on. He's a very cool professor and is open to any ideas that I may have and he doesn't expect anything particularly amazing, just an extra paper will do. But I want to do something interesting/original. Any ideas???

green river killer [07 Nov 2003|09:35am]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Washington man admits 48 murders
Ridgway to get life in prison in Green River case
Nov. 5 — Gary Leon Ridgway listens as prosecutor Jeffrey Baird reads his statement detailing his motive for killing 48 women in the Green River area.
SEATTLE, Nov. 5 — Uttering the word “guilty” 48 times with chilling calm, former truck painter Gary Leon Ridgway admitted Wednesday that he was the Green River Killer and confessed to murdering four dozen women over the past two decades.
Nov. 5 — Gary Leon Ridgway was calm and dispassionate in court, but his crimes, read from a statement, sent chills across a community long haunted by the Green River Killer. NBC’s James Hattori reports.“I KILLED SO many women I have a hard time keeping them straight,” he said in a confession read aloud in King County Superior Court by a prosecutor.Ridgway, 54, a short figure with glasses, thinning hair and a sandy mustache, pleaded guilty to more murders than any other serial killer in U.S. history. He struck a plea agreement that will spare him from execution for those killings and will result in a sentence of life in prison without parole for one of the most baffling and chilling serial killer cases the nation has ever seen. “I wanted to kill as many women as I thought were prostitutes as I possibly could,” he said in the statement. He said he left some bodies in “clusters” and enjoyed driving by the sites afterward, thinking about what he had done.
Some victims’ relatives wept quietly in the courtroom as Ridgway, in a clear but subdued voice, admitted killing each woman.“It was hard to sit there and see him not show any feeling and not show any remorse,” said Kathy Mills, whose daughter Opal was 16 when she vanished in 1982. Her body was found in the Green River three days later. Defense lawyers said Ridgway was sorry and would express that to the families at sentencing.Attorney Tony Savage said the emotions came “in private, in emotional ways, in tears and in words. ... He feels terrible remorse.” Other serial killers have bragged of murdering dozens of victims, but Ridgway’s plea agreement, signed June 13, puts more murders on his record than that of any other serial killer in U.S. history.No deal was cut, however, that might spare him from death penalties in other jurisdictions. Ridgway has not been charged elsewhere, but he admitted dumping victims outside King County and in Oregon.Since signing off on the deal, Ridgway has worked with investigators to recover still-missing remains of some victims. Excerpt from Ridgway statement The Green River Killer’s murderous frenzy began in 1982, targeting women in the Seattle area, most of them runaways and prostitutes. The first victims turned up in the Green River, giving the killer his name. Other bodies were found near ravines, airports and freeways.The killing seemed to stop as suddenly as it started, with prosecutors believing the last victim had disappeared in 1984. But one of the killings Ridgway admitted to occurred in 1990 and another in 1998. RIDGWAY GIVES MOTIVE
In court Wednesday, Ridgway entered the 48 guilty pleas, one by one.He said in his statement that he killed all the women in King County, most of them near his home or in his truck not far from where he had picked them up. He said he enjoyed driving by the sites afterward, thinking about what he had done.“In most cases, when I killed these women, I did not know their names,” Ridgway said in the statement. “Most of the time, I killed them the first time I met them, and I do not have a good memory of their faces.” He said he had several reasons for preying on prostitutes.“I hate most prostitutes, and I did not want to pay them for sex,” he said. “I also picked prostitutes as victims because they were easy to pick up without being noticed. I knew they would not be reported missing right away and might never be reported missing. I picked prostitutes because I thought I could kill as many of them as I wanted without getting caught.”
Ridgway, of the Seattle suburb of Auburn, was arrested in 2001 as he left his longtime job as a painter at a truck company. Prosecutors said advances in DNA technology had allowed them to match a saliva sample taken from Ridgway in 1987 with DNA samples taken from the bodies of three of the earliest victims.
• Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Green River killings
• King Co. Journal: Ridgeway killed as many as 70
• Everett Herald: Death penalty dealt a blow
In many cases, the killer had sex with his victim and then strangled her.Ridgway had been a suspect as early as 1984, when the boyfriend of victim Marie Malvar reported that he last saw her getting into a pickup truck identified as Ridgway’s.But Ridgway told police he did not know Malvar, and investigators cleared him as a suspect. Later that year, Ridgway contacted the King County sheriff’s Green River task force — ostensibly to offer information about the case — and passed a polygraph test.He is scheduled to be sentenced within six months to 48 consecutive life prison sentences without parole.

what do you think??? [25 Aug 2003|09:21pm]

[ mood | nauseated ]

i was just reading this story off the AOL news thing and it sickened me. the parents were charged with child abuse and kidnapping. i think that these so called "parents" should be charged with attempted murder, maybe it's a little harsh, but then again so is locking your children in a roach infested cage with a urine soaked, shit encrusted mattress to sleep on. to me, that is way more than child abuse. also, i dont understand the kidnapping charge. How do you think that these "parents" should be punished? lemme know people.

PHOENIX (Aug. 25) - A couple was arrested on child abuse charges for allegedly keeping their 5-year-old twin sons locked in filthy, makeshift cages for several hours a day.

Police found the boys Saturday after their older brother told officers at a grocery store about the squalid living conditions.

When police arrived at the home they found the children inside two cribs that had been wired together and sealed by plastic crates. Roaches filled the cages, which contained a blanket and small mattress stained with feces and urine.

Louis and Etelvina Rodriguez of Phoenix were arrested on suspicion of child abuse and kidnapping.

The children, who appeared healthy, were placed in state custody.

``They were happy to see us and opened their arms wide, reaching out to be held and picked up,'' Sgt. Jacqui MacConnell said.

Investigators believe the boys were released from the cages for a few hours a day when their mother returned from work.

Etelvina Rodriguez, 42, told police her husband wanted the boys locked up because he had health problems. She and her husband each were being held on $243,000 bond.

banks [22 Aug 2003|11:41am]
[ mood | devious ]

if one robs a bank in their own neighbourhood - but hurts no one, should that person be severely punished? obviously, robbing a bank is a federal crime, still - should justice reign hard on that individual? what if it were a number of banks and no one was hurt - scared shitless, maybe, but not hurt? what then?

Whoops! [05 Aug 2003|11:31am]

[ mood | cynical ]

Here is a story about a Lawyer who claims to have a secret document from the Vatican that explains how to carry out secret in-church trials in cases of sexual abuse by priests... the outcome of which is that no priest will get convicted.

"The very first instruction on the document says 'this text is to be diligently stored in the secret archives of the curia as strictly confidential. Nor is it to be published nor added to with any commentaries.'"

So much for that idea.

The moral of the story is.. if your organisation is involved in shady doings.. DON'T WRITE IT DOWN!

For something debatable-
Can you believe this crap?
I can.

Fun Crime Question!! [04 Aug 2003|07:47pm]

Ok, to appease Casey, I will post something.

If you could kill anyone and get away with it, who would it be?
For me, I think it would be this asshole who is friends with one my my friends. He is fucked up, and will bring no productivity to this world. Plus he is a racist neo-nazi. Fuck that and fuck him.

Sexual Offenders [14 Jul 2003|11:34am]

Do you think that sexual offenders should be made to register in the public awareness programs, such as Megan's Law, to noitfy the public of there residings? Many states are ruling in court that programs like these are "un-constitutial" and that they are infringing upon the rights of sexual offenders.(With i think in itself is an oxymoron). It is a fact that sexual offenses, such as rape, incest, and molestation, has a 41% repetition rate, therefore, these people are obviously not changing through the prison system and need mental help, which they do not recieve. So, shouldn't the public be informed when one of these monsters settle themselves in their neighborhood, where the children may be at risk? Now don't get me wrong, I realize that "some" of offenders may change while in prison, and hey, if they dont do anything ever again, then more power to them, and after there probation, then maybe they can be taken off the registry, but far too many of them simply do not change. What do you all think??
